    Film 'JAIN ENLIGHTENMENT - A Cosmic Way of Life' for America and the world

    We have produced a beautiful 10 min DEMO film 'JAIN ENLIGHTENMENT - A Way of Life' and also working on 'Palitana - City of Temples on the Hill' to inform and educate America about Ahimsa, Anekantvad, Aparigrah ... involving Forgiveness, Compassion, and Peace.

    We returned from India with over 200 hours of film and are also producing a series of films on Legend of Lord Bahubali; King Adhinathan, Lord Mahavira and Sacred Pilgrimages - including Ranakpur, Ellora etc. to show Jain Images of Perfection.

  • 3. The NCCR brochure “Guide” will be updated every year. A complementary brochure (“The National Centres of Competence in Research NCCR – Cutting the Edge Research Made in Switzerland – Strategic Priorities in Research”) informs about the visions, the research topics and the activities of the 20 NCCRs. It is addressed to a broad public and written in an easily understandable way. Both brochures can be ordered at the Swiss National Science Foundation (see address below).
