Our President's Message
We are proud to inform you that the Jain Center of Greater Phoenix is celebrating its eleventh anniversary this year in 2020.
We are located in the heart of Phoenix, neighboring the Shree Nathji Haveli. A grand sandstone archway and a 41-foot Manastambha (non-violence monument) welcomes you as you enter the JCGP temple. In rang mandap, the ceiling displays the Jain Universe. The Gabhara is adorned with 51-inch statues of Lord Mahavir and Lord Adinath. Circumfrencing the primary deities are the twenty-four Tirthankaras.
At JCGP, we have a vibrant community. We celebrate Jain festivals: Diwali, Mahavir Jayanti, Paryushan, and Das Lakshan. Almost every Sunday, except for summer vacations and school breaks, there are Pathshala classes for children and Satsang classes for adults. In addition to these regular classes, we often host scholars and dignitaries from all over the globe to enrichen our Jain values with their lectures.
Our strong commitment to Jainism and our community goes beyond the JCGP premises. We hold a JCGP Picnic and a JCGP Camp each year. We also participate in local seva events, especially we encourage our youth to lead and organize these charitable events.
Beginning from a few families in 2008 to more than 200 families in 2019, we continue to grow our JCGP family. We are grateful for your unwavering love and support. Do visit us, we would be delighted to welcome you.
Jain Center of Greater Phoenix site is being redesigned. You can continue to make a donation to JCGP.
Blessed with Seva,
Romish & Prital Shroff
