ABOUT JAIN NETWORK
Jain Network is a registered charity and a non-profit organization in England & Wales, launched in March 2007 as a result of the merger of Jain Sanga of Europe, Jain Academy & Ahimsa for Quality of Life. It has been registered in India as Jain Centre Jinalaya Trust and in the USA as Jain Network, USA.
Its motto is: “Live and Help to Live”.
Jain values are based on 3 A’s non-violence (Ahimsa), non-attachment to the material world (Aparigraha), pluralism (Anekantavad) and introspection, calmness of self and spiritual liberation by self-effort. It believes in friendship to all and malice to none, improvement of quality of life for all, compassion, equality, animal welfare, environment preservation and peace.
Jain Network’s major project is the creation of the Jain Centre at 64-68 Colindale Avenue, London NW9 5DR. Jain Centre will be a 3-storied (30,000 sq. ft) architectural splendour of white marble, depicting traditional marble carvings within a modern design that will be functional and flexible. The 2nd floor will be a place for worship. The ground floor and 1st floor will be used as a community centre for multifarious activities – available to all communities, organizations and businesses. It will have a multi-faith centre, digital & traditional library, multipurpose rooms, conference hall and meeting rooms. The Centre will also have a vegan/vegetarian restaurant. The car Park is available for daily use.
This magnificent development has the world’s first Aum, Hrim-shaped 108 Parshwanath Jinalay, a place of worship and study for all major Jain traditions and a community centre for all. This Centre is likely to be a global hub, one-stop information on Jainism and a place for the dissemination of Jain values. It will promote peace and harmony in Jain and wider communities.
