PROGRAM TO STUDY NONVIOLENCE & JAIN DHARMA / RELIGIOUS TRADITION IN INDIA

Dear Friends,

Jai Jinendra!
  I am writing to you  about a unique opportunity to Study Nonviolence in India.
International Summer School for Jain Studies (ISSJS) is currently accepting applications for three, four and  six week study programs in India. Last date to apply is March 1st, 2018.
Jain Dharma/Religion originated in India several thousand years ago. An elder cousin of Buddhism, Jain dharma teaches a lifestyle rooted in the practice of unconditional nonviolence. Its teachings inspired and influenced Mahatma Gandhi. Jainism is the sixth (6th) largest religion in the world.

Students and scholars will learn about Jain traditions from learned lay scholars as well as practicing monks and nuns in India.

Designed for undergraduate and graduate students, Post-Doctoral Fellows, full time faculty and High  School Teachers with an interest in the Jaina Studies and Ahimsa (nonviolence), the three, four  and six week long, stand alone and separate intensive courses in International Summer School for Jain Studies (ISSJS) 2018 will entail morning lectures, afternoon field trips, visits to some schools, time in a few ancient cities and meetings with Jain professionals, monks and  nuns.

For the last 13 years, every summer, ISSJS have been offered regularly in India. The number of participants has seen a steady increase every year. Nearly 60 scholars participated in ISSJS-2017 programs  and 585 students and scholars from many universities  and High Schools  have participated in ISSJS programs  so far. We are excited to be offering ISSJS-2018 in its 14th annual year!
