Jain Delegation visit to The Vatican

On Monday 30th May Tusharbhai, OAUK President, flew to Rome as part of a delegation of Jain leaders, invited to an audience with his Holiness Pope Francis.  This event was organised by The Institute of Jainology, led by Nemubhai Chandaria OBE under the banner of ‘One Jain’.  Many Jain leaders from around the world were present at this historic event.

For Oshwals this is a true landmark moment in our history and His Holiness Pope Francis was most welcoming to all of us.  The common message was how we as Jains recognise the importance of safeguarding our environment and respecting all life and preserving the one and only planet Earth that we live on.
