2023 JSGD Significant Individual Lifetime Contribution Award “Call for Nomination"

Pranam JSGD Members,

We have many volunteers and unsung heroes who have served the Jain Society and community for years who never worried about recognition, but instead served out of love, duty and responsibility towards the community. We appreciate what they have done, and what they continue to do. Thus, they will not be forgotten and should be recognized as they truly represent our culture at its best.

Starting in 2016, the BOT and EC had decided on the addition of a “Significant Individual Lifetime Contribution Award" to a senior member in appreciation for their services and contribution to our society.  The procedure, criteria and nomination form are listed below. This award will be given during our 29th Annual Fund-raising event on Saturday, 29th April 2023, at The Meridian, Farmington Hills, Michigan. The sponsor should complete a nomination form and email back to Dr. Suresh Shah at before March 25th, 2023.  The selected candidate(s) will be informed by e-mail before April 22nd, 2023. The Nominations received after the deadline will NOT be considered.  For questions, please contact Awards Committee co-chairs Suresh Shah/Hemant Shah.

Previous year’s remaining nominations will be re-considered so their nominations forms are NOT required again.

Jain Alert Group Message- Sparsh Book


We are excited to announce that you can now order Gurudev Acharya RatnaSundar Surishwaraji Maharaj Saheb's 400th book, Sparsh, in Gujarati, Hindi, or English to your doorstep in the USA.

The mind is a troublesome character. Whenever it is faced with anything undesirable, it quickly gives up. It becomes paralyzed with disappointment, discouragement, and depression. This book contains various techniques which will plant the seed of encouragement and excitement in the hearts of readers beset by such a mind. The reader will experience a blossoming, feeling of enthusiasm to be able to overcome any situation in life.

A good book is like a work of art, it is meant to be shared with others. You are encouraged to use this book to discuss various life situations with your peers, kids and grandkids. You can also use the book in Pathshala as a course to teach Marganusari Jivan (Ethical Way of Life) to youth.





The book has been translated into 16 other languages. If you would like to receive it in any other language, please use one of the above links to order and write to us at If you are also interested in having a special edition to distribute to your friends and family, contact us at
