JSMC Member Recognition Award
JSMC has made tremendous progress in various ways since its inception in 1969. All this has been made possible by tireless contributions, in all possible ways, made by many of its members over the years. Considering this, the Board of Trustees (BOT), has approved and resolved to start a program of community recognition.

A Membership Recognition Committee has been appointed for this purpose and is, hereby, inviting nominations from members for the JSMC Member Recognition Award in Adult and Youth category. Nominations are due by September 15th, 2016.
 
Please refer to the following forms for more details.

Das Laxana Parva Dignitary
Shri Pradeepji Jhanjhari:

 

 Shri Pradeepji Jhanjhari has earned wide name throughout India as an erudite Jain scholar for reasons of his thorough study of Jain tenets.

 Active in religious activities since more than 35 years, he has deeply studied scriptures by Acharya Shree Kund Kund and other Jain Acharyas, entire literature of Shrimad Rajchandra and Jain philosophical literature.

 After developing a deep understanding and knowledge of Jain Scriptures, he first sat on stage to give discourse just at the age of 22 and since then he devoted his life to spread Jainism in India and abroad.

 He is being invited for lectures to several places on occasions like paryushan parv, daslakshan, ashtanhikas, shikshan shivir and panchkalyanaks. He has been actively giving lectures in Jain Adyatma Study Circle, Mumbai since more than 12 years for parushan parv discourses.

 JSMC is honored to have blessings and discourses by Shri Pradeepji Jhanjhari during Das Laxana Maha Parva.
