|Samani Kshanti Pragya Ji
We feel privileged to have Samani Jin Pragya ji and Samani Kshanti Pragya ji with us in the Jain Vishwa Bharati, Orlando Center. Both are highly learned and are experienced disciples of Parampujya Acharya Mahashramanji.
JVB operates under the guidance of visiting Samanijis from Jain Vishwa Bharati, India. In 1980 under the guidance of Late Acharya Tulsi and Late Acharya Mahapragya a special Jain monk status of Samani was established that removes few Jain monk restrictions allowing them to travel and introduce the message of Bhagvan Mahavir outside India.
Samanijis practice Ahimsa (nonviolence), Sanyam (self restraint), Anekant (divergent perspectives), Brahmacharya (celibacy), and other Jain monk vows. Samanijis are highly educated with most of them having master or higher academic degrees from reputed Indian Universities. They have been extensively trained to coach individuals towards personal advancement. These monks have deep knowledge of the religious philosophy and are experts in the practice of Preksha (yoga and meditation) and other natural health therapies. Their good knowledge of modern science, physiology and human anatomy allows them to present the benefits of Preksha and other natural therapies in a balanced manner. Periodically Samanijis visit other organizations, communities and Jain centers to conduct religious or other sessions as per the specific need of the center.
