Being in proximity of wealthiest – pujya pravars, monks and nuns – who had invested their entire lives in eternity - was an extra bonus for me. After...

Dear Readers, there is a saying, “ If we stand tall, that is because we stand on shoulders of many ancestors” . Jainism is a beginning less religion. It has always been there.

The creator of Maryada Mahotsav...
