Acharya Mahashraman - Present Anushasta


Message to JVBI

Jain Vishva Bharati Institute is a significant achievement of Jain Society. It is serving humanity significantly through spreading Jain studies. So far many monks, nuns, lay-followers got the opportunity to study and obtain formal degrees. It is also significant in respect of studies of ancient languages like Sanskrit, Prakrit, etc. It has progressed in field of research.

The vision of H.H Acharya Shri Tulsi and H.H Acharaya Shri Mahapragya is always with the development and growth of this institution. The institute is celebrating its year of silver jubilee. I think its an occasion to review the past and plan concretely for future and step towards its execution. This institution should undertake spiritio-educational activities. The purpose of students and faculties of this Institution is not only to gain knowledge but implementation of it should be the prime motive.
