Jain Study Center Of North Carolina

Jain Study Center of North Carolina participates in Adopt-A-Highway cleanup twice a year. The statewide Adopt-A-Highway program was established in 1988 and is a joint effort between community volunteers and NC Department of Transportation to keep roads clean. JSCNC adopted a stretch of Highway 54 in Cary between Morrisville Parkway and Airport Boulevard. Spring Highway clean-up this year was completed on April 28th.

JSCNC also celebrated Mahavir Jayanti on April 22nd. Total 475 people attended the event and participated in various performances. The event was regarded as a success.
THE THEORY OF KNOWLEDGE IN JAINISM
According to Jainism consciousness or awareness is the essential quality of each individual soul. By itself, a soul does not require any external means to gain knowledge because knowledge is inherent in its essential nature and by that it has omniscience or the all-knowing awareness without the need to depend upon perception or cognition.

Knowledge does not arise because of perception or mental activity. It exists in itself, whether we know or not and whether we perceive things or not. In other words, the world is real, not an illusion.
