Sign Petition for Religious minority status for Jain community


Sign Petition for Religious minority status for Jain community


Dear Sir,
Jai Jinendra. I've started the petition to  "Government of Rajasthan: Declare Jain as religious minority" and need your help to get it off the ground. Pl  sign the petition and forward this mail to your Jain friends and family to support it. Your cooperation can only build pressure on the government to serve the purpose.

Will you take 30 seconds to sign it right now? Here's the link:

Here's why it's important:
This is an important petition for Jain community. Please support this.

Jain is an independent religion. Population of the community in India is less than 2 percent of total population. Indian constitution allows minority status for a religious community with less than 20% population. Several states likes of UP, MP, Bihar, Jharkhand and recently Punjab have declared religious minority status for Jain.

Sri Ashok Gehlot, Chief minister of Rajasthan himself told in a public meeting that he desires to provide minority status for Jain. However, it is not yet been declared.

Jain is a peaceful community and contributes major share in National GDP. They have lion's share in social and charitable work. The community is demanding minority status to save their social organizations and religious institutions.

Thanks,

Jain unity in Paryushan at Shivjiram Bhavan, Jaipur

Sri Jain Shwetambar Khartar Gachh Sangh, Jaipur is pioneering Jain unity in observing Paryushan this year 2013. PP Mahopadhyay Sri Lalitprabh Sagar Ji, Chandraprabh Sagar Ji and Shantipriya Sagar ji Maharaj.are observing their chaturmas under the banner of Khartar Sangh. They have been delivering their discourses at SMS ground since July 21 along with Digambar Jain saint Tarunsagarji Maharaj. This is the best effort made by anyone at any place for Jain unity.

Khartar Gachchh Sangh is further extending the agenda of Jain unity by inviting other Shwetambar and Digambar Jain ascetics during holy festival of Paryushan 2013 being organized between September 2 to 9, Digambar Jain saint Tarunsagarji Maharaj has already consented to join the festival at Shivji Ram Bhavan, HQ of the Sangh. He will be here on the first and last day of Paryushan

Another Digambar Jain ascetic Balacharya Sri Siddhasen Ji Maharaj pupil of Acharya Sri Bahubali ji Maharaj will join us on September 4 and 5 along with two Aryika  Mataji (female ascetics). Sri Suresh Muni, Swetambar Jain Terapanth sect, will bless the Paryushan at Shivjiram Bhavan on September 3. Poojya Sadhvi Sri Narendra Sri Ji Maharaj of Tapagachchh has consented to join us on September 6. We are in touch with few other Jain ascetics observing Chaturmas in Jaipur to invite them in Paryushan 2013 this year. 

We wish more and more Jain ascetics from different Jain sects will join us on Paryushan showing Jain unity, the very purpose of the whole program. Paryushan is the festival of forgiveness which increases compassionate love among all creatures. Jain ascetics are symbol of Kshama and Karuna. Hence, uniting Jain saints together will definitely propagate love and compassion in the whole world.  

Sri Jain Shwetambar Khartar Gachh Sangh, Jaipur has been putting efforts towards Jain unity during Paryushan and during the whole Chaturmas this year. We hope, other Sanghs in India and worldwide will join the campaign and work for Jain unity. We also believe that Jain ascetics, Poojya Acharya, Upadhyay, Sadhu and Sadhvi Ji maharaj belonging to all Jain sects can play a vital role in propagating Jain unity. It will further strengthen our religious, spiritual and social status.  

Let us hope for the best in this Paryushan and Chaturmas.

Prof Subhash Jain IOWA university visited Jain research Center


Prof Subhash Jain retired from  IOWA university, USA visited Jain research and study Center run by Sri Jain Shwetambar Khartar Gachchh Sangh, Jaipur. He visited the center on August 10, 2013, Saturday.

Prof Subhash Jain was teaching Engineering at IOWA University and started studying Jainism after retirement. Presently he is studying Jain Karma doctrine and interfacing Karma doctrine in modern context. This is a herculean task as Jain philosophy has huge texts about the same. Both Shwetambar and Digambar communities produced large canons about Karma.

Most popular among all Shwetambar texts are Karma Granth part 1 to 6 by Devendra Suri where as most popular Digambar texts are from Gommatsara. There are large volumes in other Jain texts such as fifth Agam Bhagwati Sutra (Vyakhya Prajnyapti), Vipaka Sutra, Kammapayadi etc. Prof Jain has been studying all these to describe in modern context.

There are illustrations of several canons and texts including that of Vipaka Sutra and Tatvartha Sutra. Large numbers of Acharya, ascetics and other scholars wrote large volumes describing complete methodologies. Jainism has explicitly and critically documented almost everything about Karma doctrine.

Prof Subhash Jain has visited Jain research and study Center, Jaipur to see books in the library and to discuss issues with scholars. He stayed here for about four hours discussing Karma doctrine. He also delivered a lecture on the same topic on Friday at Prakrit Bharti academy.
