Editor's View : We noticed that Jains are eager to know more and more about Jainism. People are very much interested to hear visiting Scholars, Sadhus, Sadhvis, Bhattaraks, Samans & Samanis and attend their programs. But there is no central place, where latest information about these programs can be obtained. Till now, it is word of mouth mostly. While there are some private programs (admission strictly by invitation), there are several programs, where all are welcome to join. We request the organizers of such programs to send us details of program, date, time, place (City, State & Country) and a Contact Phone number & e-mail address.
