At Bikaner in Rajasthan where Dulichand Jain attended an event of Karuna Clubs, a student, Kumar Sahal of Std IX, drew a portrait of him. It is so wonderful to see how people look up to him and how much they respect him. We, his children and grandchildren, feel so delighted and inspired.

Extracts from paper presented at Jaina Convention, Chicago:

“The philosophy of consumerism is based purely on amoral principles, where self-interest is predominant and social welfare occupies secondary place…Today people in America own and consume twice as much as they did in 1950. The question arises whether they are twice as much happy as they were in 1950!”

“…a man should continuously watch his own behaviour so that it does not result in any injury to any living being. Jaina ethics give great attention to life-preservation…and kindness to all forms of life.”

Mahavira Jayanti

Dulichand Jain and his daughter Pratibha Jain wrote an article about the wanderings of Lord Mahavira in 2002 for the Vivekananda Kendra Patrika. “Particularly motivating are the wanderings of the ancient seers, one of whom was Lord Mahavira whose wanderings were not just to sanctify the Earth, but a journey of the higher realms as well.” Read the article on this link: http://pratibhajain.org/2013/04/24/mahavira-the-great-wanderer/
