JAINA AT FIA INDIA DAY PARADE IN NEW YORK


Federation of Indian Associations (FIA) organized an India Day Parade in New York City On August 19, 2018. It was the largest Independence Parade outside India. JAINA, YJP and YJA marched by International Ahimsa Foundation Float. JAINA President, Mr. Gunvant Shah also met with Indian Consulate from NY and NY and Congress Woman during the Parade. Here are some photos from the event.

WHAT IS HAPPINESS?
It is an agreed fact that all the creatures want happiness and are afraid of pain and grief. The question, however, is
'what is real happiness?'.
The desire for happiness has no meaning without understanding the real nature of happiness

Generally, ordinary beings consider sensual pleasures as happiness and their attempts are also directed towards it. According to them, search for happiness means to search for pleasures of the senses. The question 'what is happiness' does not arise in their hearts, because they treat life full of sensory joys as a happy life.
