Mangalayatan University, founded on the best tenets of Jainism, is home to students of all religions, from all walks of life. At Mangalayatan University, we encourage students to discover their spiritual being and offer them a variety of avenues to do this. From yoga lessons to religious discourses to landmark religious monuments on campus, students have several salubrious influences on their lives throughout their stay on campus.
In December 2010, several students and faculty played gracious host to the grand inauguration of the Jain temple on the Mangalayatan University campus.
For nearly 10 days, the campus was host to over 10,000 resident devotees and a further 5,000-10,000 daily visitors. This Panchkalyanak function was attended by prominent Jain personalities from the USA, Europe, Kenya, the Middle East and all over India.
We believe that several socially-minded, selfless initiatives undertaken by the Mangalayatan University community have their roots in the firm cultural values they see around them and imbibe. These experiences constitute a vital ingredient in the development of our students’ world-view.
