Some explanation on Shatavdhan:
Avdhani - Is an individual who can memorize very large number of questions, objects, statements. Shatavdhan is a display of memory of 100 such things - a product of meditation and focus. Witnessing this ability is a great source of inspiration on our mental capacities!

A reminder that we have taken on an initiative around meeting lunches going forward - For leftovers we have two options:
Option 1: The person responsible for a particular dish takes leftovers back home
Option 2: We will collect the leftovers and deliver it to NCSU students
Food served during monthly meetings and special events has played a vital role in building our community over the years. It has enabled us to spend quality time to learn Jainism and socialize with other fellow Jains without having to worry about our usual lunch/dinner planning that day. This wouldn't have been possible without the hard work and monetary donations from several individuals. We are extremely grateful for their efforts and thank them for their continued contributions.
Please contact our food coordinator, Mr. Rajan Chheda @ (978) 408-7284 for any questions / details.
