A Residential Jain Shibir is a fantastic medium to understand and explore Jainism philosophy whilst also reflecting upon our inner selves and our faith in a collective & cohesive manner within a particularly conducive setting.

Melbourne Shwetambar Jain Sangh (MSJS) cordially invites you to attend and participate in its upcoming first ever Residential Jain Shibir on Karma Vignyan (Science of Karma)  understanding The Karmic Theory. The action-packed Shibir will be conducted by world renowned Param Pujya Shree Jinchandraji (popularly known as Bandhu Triputi in India) who is well known for his ability to address people of all ages.

This Shibir will be held in an exceptional conference venue which is an award-winning retreat in the picturesque Dandenong Ranges in Melbourne on the weekend of 25th-26th April 2009.
