Jain Dharma is the least known/understood Religion. Even among academia, it was mostly mentioned as a footnote. As a Shravak, it’s our duty to help spread our Tirthankers` message where our Sadhu/Sadhvis cannot reach.
Jain Academic Education Committee (an integral part of JCSC) was established to promote Jain Dharma in academia. Jain Dharma Principles are pillars of modern democracy and Jain Way of life is most climate friendly and most nonviolent, preached by our Tirthankers for millennia.
Investing with Academic Institutions with emphasis on Jain Dharma will help ,Jain Religion to be recognized as a compassionate religion with worlds` other religions`. JAEC’s journey began with the first Chair, Shri Bhagwan Mahavira Chair for Jain Study at FIU, Miami Florida in 2010. Since then, our march has been unstoppable and now Jain Programs are at more than 30 Universities worldwide and these are helping us impart Shruta Jnana (Knowledge obtained through signs, symbols, words hearing from wise and reading scriptures).
JAEC also holds several conferences, and sponsors lectures in addition to publishing papers, and writing books.
