Exploring New Possibilities Of Jainological Studies

Prof. Nathan Katz of the Florida International University was the Chief Speaker at the Seminar. He has been appointed as Professor at the “Bhagwan Mahavir Professorship” of Jainological Studies at F. I. U.. Expressing his gratitude towards Acharya Shri Mahashramanji, the Disciplinarian at Jain Vishva Bharati University at Ladnun (Rajasthan), Prof. Katz said that the whole world needed today to get the knowledge of the high principles of Jainism such as non-violence, freedom from greed and peaceful co-existence called Anekant. He said that for that purpose they had established the Bhagwan Mahavir Professorship for Jain Studies at F. I. U., U. S. A., where thousands of students would get the opportunity to study Jainism. He said that Dalai Lama had visited F. I. U. twice and studies in Buddhism were already going on there. He said that the Jain studies would go a long way for comprehending even Buddhism and Hinduism. “In fact, Jainism is a valuable heritage for mankind and a gateway to Universal peace”, he added. Prof. Katz also threw light on the future exchange programme between F. I. U at Miami, U. S. A. and Jain Vishva Bharati University at Ladnun, Rajasthan and envisaged new possibilities of Jainological Studies. He also said that an online programme would be started very soon for Jain studies.

Muni Mahendra Kumar, the Professor at Jain Vishva Bharati University and a versatile scholar of many disciplines, in his Key note address said that a new world-order based on non-violence & peace could be established through right dissemination, training and research in the applied philosophy found in Jainism by finding solution to the burning problems of the world. He said that an auspicious beginning in this direction had taken place by establishment of Bhagwan Mahavir Professorship at F. I. U.. Muniji expressed his hope that new possibilities would be explored at other Universities too, by such studies.

Muni Ajit Kumar and Muni Amrit Kumar presented an auspicious song in the beginning. Prof. Vinay Jain, Advisor, International School of Jain Studies, Prof. Kamla Jain, Associate of Philosophy Jesus Mary College, Delhi University, Prof. Vrishabh Prasad Jain, Consultant/Advisor, Association of Indian Universities, Dr. S.
