Learn Jainism


Support us

As a registered UK charity (number 1131173), the Institute of Jainology (IoJ) invites you to help realise the JAINpedia vision, of which Learn Jainism is a key part.

Please donate generously to help the project continue.

Achieving the JAINpedia vision

With your help, we look forward to making the JAINpedia vision bigger and better in years to come.

Although the technical development has been completed, maintenance and additional content continues to cost the IoJ. With over 1.5 million page views during the website’s beta status, a small donation by all viewers would have funded the entire project and more.

Learn Jainism is a fundamental part of the JAINpedia project and is the only part created especially for children and teachers.

The IoJ conceived the JAINpedia project in 2007 with the vision of making the Jain collections in major UK institutions more accessible to the public. The ambitious plan opened up these important holdings through public exhibitions, events and a media-rich website featuring over 5,000 folios and original contextual material. The project has been supported by the Jain community worldwide and public donations in the UK, but now we need your help.
