Vice-Chancellor of Jain Vishva Bharati University, Ladnun Dr. Samani Mangal Pragya ji attended the Parliament and delivered lecture on "Jain Education for Peace & Harmony." Her presentation was on various problems of today's world and how the Jaina principles of Non-Absolutism, Non-Violence and Non-Possession can help man to overcome those problems.
