The Department of Jainology was established to impart spiritual education to our students and help them embrace a Jaina way of life. The department aims to nurture all aspects of one’s personality and enable them to live a holistic life and also endeavour for higher spiritual growth. Its main objective is to impart the right knowledge to them so that they can make better choices and lead a happy and purposeful life filled with values and principles that could be applied in their day-to-day life.
