Mixing up the 3 Jewels? Don’t know why we make a saathio? Confused about the difference between Anekantvaad and Aparigraha? YJA’s Online Pathshala can help clear up these concepts and more! Whether you have been to Pathshala before or not, this project is meant to give you a structured way to learn some Jainism basics. YJAP resources will be available starting this month - you can move through them at your own pace and whenever you have time! If you are unable to attend an in-person Pathshala due to conflicts, distance, or lack of availability, our online lessons will help you gain a solid familiarity with Jainism.
Sign up today!
Registration for Northeast, South, Southeast and West Region Retreats is coming soon!
