We feel privileged to have

Samani Kanchan Pragya Ji
(profile..click here to view Samaniji's Profile.) and
Samani Pranav Pragya Ji (profile..click here to view Samaniji's Profile.)

with us in the JVB, Houston Center. Both are highly learned and are experienced disciples of Parampujya Acharya Mahapragyaji.

JVB operates under the guidance of visiting Samaniji from Jain Vishwa Bharati, India. In 1980 under the guidance of Late Acharya Tulsi and Acharya Mahapragya a special Jain monk status of Samani was established that removes few Jain monk restrictions allowing them to travel and introduce the message of Bhagavan Mahavira outside India .


Samaniji practice Ahimsa (nonviolence), Sanyam (self restraint), and Anekant (divergent perspectives), celibacy, and other Jain monk vows. Samaniji are highly educated with most of them having master or higher academic degrees from reputed Indian Universities. They have been extensively trained to coach individuals towards personal advancement. These monks have deep knowledge of the religious philosophy and are experts in the practice of Preksha (yoga and meditation) and other natural health therapies. Their good knowledge of modern science, physiology and human anatomy allows them to present the benefits of Preksha and other natural therapies in a balanced manner. Periodically Samaniji visit other organizations, communities and Jain centers to conduct religious or other sessions as per the specific need of the center.
