JAINA’S FIRST JAIN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE IN INDIA
We are excited to announce that JAINA is planning the first Jain International Conference in Ahmedabad, (India) in January 2020.
As you know, JAINA (Federation of Jain Associations in North America) established in 1981, is the largest association of Jains outside of
India. JAINA represents more than seventy Jain Sanghs in the US and Canada with a combined membership of more than 125,000 Jains without
distinction of sects, language or place of origin in India. JAINA is admired around the Jain world for our unity, unified Jain Temples and
our Biennial Conventions.
JAINA is seeking cooperation from the World Jain Confederation to have annual International Conferences to be held in different major
cities in India under the same theme since we both have Similar goals of bringing Jain unity in India and around the world.
The purpose of this conference is to promote religious and educational activities related to Jain religion and to promote understanding of
Jain religion on a non-sectarian basis. In furtherance of the above-stated objective, we wish to create an international forum where
institutions can come together to discuss and design programs that promote studies of our Jain Dharma. JAINA's philosophy is to work with
all segments of our community to Protect, Preserve and Promote our precious heritage with noble goals. Our Biennial Conventions, wherein we
invite scholars and dignitaries from all over the world are a good example of how we attempt to meet that responsibility. But we also
recognize that not everyone can travel to the USA, hence a proposal to create a meet in India.
Stay tuned for more updates!
