Dear Dharambandhu, 

Jai Jinendra!

JAINA is delighted to present you the JAINA 2011 Calendar. This year's calendar continues its Yaatra of the rich history of Jain Temple Art and Architecture. These pictures showing the Rang Mandap or Grand Hall of 12 architecturally and historically important Jain Temples and Jain Tirths dispersed throughout India depict the richness and vastness of the Jain culture.

The JAINA 2011 Calendar includes a brief Profile of the first 12 Tirthankars, along with their Symbols that are familiar to all Jains. These Symbols, engraved or carved on each idol, identify the individual Tirthankar to the worshipper. In addition, the profile provides other details about their gotra, parents name, place of birth, place of enlightenment and nirvan, yakhs and yakshini, and chief disciple.

Thanks to an overwhelmingly positive response by the Jain Community, we are again able to freely distribute 11,000 copies of the JAINA 2011 Calendar to Jain families across North America and other parts of the world. Over 3,500 sets of the JAINA Mini - Library have been distributed to all those who responded and requested these Book Sets.

We are also very excited to let you know that we will be launching a new JAINA Project, an extensive hard bound 4-color Coffee Table Book of Ancient Jain Temples ~ Yaatra geographically spread throughout India. This book will be laid out as a tourist guide companion with the Temples categorized by the States and Regions of India. The book will include full color pictures of over 40 important Jain Temples alongside related text explaining the historical, architectural and religious significance, as well as the general location of each temple.

All our past success has been possible only by the wholehearted financial contributions and valuable suggestions from thoughtful individuals like you. JAINA Calendar Committee and JAINA Executive Board sincerely thank you for your continued contribution towards this educational activity and welcome your strong support to enable us to continue this project incorporating all of your valuable suggestions.

Please take a moment to fill out the enclosed JAINA 2011 Calendar Response Form and mail it in the enclosed pre-addressed envelope with your Tax-Deductible Contribution check made to JAINA Calendar. In this difficult economic condition many charitable institutions have suffered steep declines in contributions… we are no exception to this.Please Donate generously as thisNon-Profit project is entirely Supported by your Valuable Donations, which makes it possible for us to freely distribute this Calendar to over 11,000 Jain Families.

Wishing you all a Very Happy, Healthy, Prosperous and a Peaceful New Year.

Warm Regards,

Rajeev Pandya

Chairman, JAINA Calendar and Mini Library Committee
