JAINA Convention 2023 Theme

“Maximize Human Potential – The Jain Way”

According to Jainism, human life is the only form of jiva to obtain liberation directly. As human beings, we are endowed with the ability to think; we can differentiate right from wrong. We can decide what is good for us and what is not. We also can control our minds and activities.

As humans, we are capable of helping ourselves and those around us. We are also capable of assisting the lower life forms. How then can we maximize our potential to improve, influence, and inspire others, to address the problem of modern times using the modern-day tools available to us?

At JAINA Convention 2023, the learned speakers will attempt to help us answer these questions. We will learn to use Jain principles and practices to maximize their potential, enhance their lives, and create a broader positive impact.

“I have traversed decades of active life and have had a variety of interactions with people from different ethnic, educational, and financial backgrounds. Based on my study, personal experience, and observation, I have concluded that Jainism has the most to offer to resolve the problems of all humans. This religion has the treasure of knowledge and wisdom that has the power to awaken, make us happy, serene, and peaceful, and unlock our potential to lift us much higher.

Unfortunately, most of us have neither  recognized this power; nor made the efforts in a correct way. I felt that perhaps by steering the dignitaries and speakers towards the above theme, the convention attendees would alter their perspective, recognize their vast potential, and mould their lives in a better way, going forward. I am very grateful to the Convention Board for accepting this theme.”
