On this page, I have compiled three video interviews of three representatives of the tradition. In order to truly understand Jainism, one must acknowledge the voices of its devout practitioners, as a way to gain new perspective on their attitudes towards Jain belief systems. 

Acharya Shree Yogeesh shares his thoughts on the Jain system and how it differs from the Jain religion. Currently, he lives as an enlightened master of the tradition and dedicates his life to helping advance the spiritualities of others. He is the founder of the “Siddhayatan Tirth and Spiritual Retreat, a unique 200+ acre spiritual pilgrimage site and meditation park in North America providing the perfect atmosphere for spiritual learning, community, and soul awakening to help truth seekers advance spiritually.” He is known by his peers as an inspiring spiritual leader and well-renowned speaker. His mission is to spread the Jain message. I encourage you to check out Acharya Shree Yogeesh’s YouTube channel, where you will find dozens of videos about Jain beliefs, teachings, and practices, taught by the wise master himself!


Next, I have an interview with Pravin Shah (Chair of the JAINA Education Committee) that highlights his views on why Jains follow a vegetarian diet and his argument as to why Jains should become vegan. I found this video to be an authentic representation of the devout faith and dedication of Jainism practitioners. Please enjoy!


Lastly, I have included a rather lengthy interview with Indu Jain, the current chairperson of India’s largest media group, Bennett, Coleman & Co. Ltd., which owns the Times of India and other large newspapers. As I researched Indu Jain, I found her personal journey and religious convictions to be very inspiring, so I decided to share this interview that provides insight into some of her views as they pertain to her faith. If you cannot watch the whole video, the first ten minutes should suffice, as they capture the essence of her devotional spirit and the importance of Jainism in her life and mission. Watch however much you can!
