Terapanth Professional Forum Kolkata


The 4th Monthly Meet of TPF Kolkata Branch was held on 25th December 2010 at the Rishra Sevak Sangh, Rishra under the pious presence of Sadhvishri Kanakshriji wherein more than 70 participants from Kolkata and Rishra area took part.

The Meet began with the holy chanting of Namaskar Mahamantra by Sadhvishri Kanakshriji.

The key topic of the Meet was “Global Warming and Youth Awareness”. Sadhvishri Kanakshri ji guided the gathering in her keynote address. Sadhvishri Kanakshriji advised that living one’s life based on the principles and Philosophy of Jain Religion is the best way to counter global warming. With citations from the life of Ganadhipati Shri Tulsi, she gave stress on simple living and high thinking. Sadhvishriji affirmed her faith on the youths of Terapanth Sect and called for their greater role in tackling the menace of Global Warming. She said Lord Mahavira, the 24th of the Jain Tirthankar was a great environmentalist. He had preached more than 2500 years ago to follow the principles of truth, non- violence, non-stealing, celibacy and non-attachment, which provide total solutions to the modern environmental imbalances. The Professionals from the Jain community must strictly follow the principles and apply them in their professional life too thereby contributing a great deal in solving the global problem

Shri Prakash Chand Maloo, president of the Kolkata branch, in his power point presentation on the subject, detailed about the concept of the Global Warming. With factual data from around the globe, he presented the dreadful picture of Global Warming and its causes. He asserted that the uncontrolled and irregular pattern of consumption has lead to excessive production, which in turn has increased global warming.

Shri Prem Kumar Bafana, vice-president of the Kolkata Branch, emphasized that understanding and application of Jain principles would not only serve spiritual purpose but would also help in controlling Global Warming. He presented examples from the “Pacchish Bol” to second his thought.

Eminent pediatrician of the city Dr. Raj Kumar Jain, in his address, appealed the gathering to stick to Vegetarianism. With his factual data he presented the cruel side of Non-Vegetarianism and how it negatively affects the global environment.

Shri Rajesh Ghorawat also enlightened the gathering with the concept of Carbon Trading in context to Global Warming.

Shri Sushil Choraria, National Jt. Secretary anchored the Meet and welcomed guests and other participants. In his welcome address he requested all the Terapanthi professionals from Rishra Area to join Terapanth Professional Forum and participate in its various activities for mutual benefits of all and the Dharma Sangh. He also apprised the delegates that the literary work by the Acharyas and saints and sadhvis of Jain Terapanth sect acts as a guiding path to overcome the present day environmental problems faced by the world. So every one should develop the habit of swadhyaya of the literary work. Sadhvi Kanakshriji has also written a good number of books providing solutions to the modern era problems.
