Event description
Discover the tenets of Jainism, one of the three ancient religions in India, with P Timbadia from the Singapore Jain Religious Society.

About this event

Jainism is one of the three ancient religions of India, the others being Hinduism and Buddhism. While it shares similarities with the latter two religions, Jainism is a distinct religion of its own! Join Mr Parresh who will be sharing more about the history, principles, prayers and practices of this minority religion while taking you around the Singapore Jain Religious Society building!

Meet Parresh Timbadia

Hello, I am Parresh and I have been President of the Singapore Jain Religious Society (SJRS) since July 2020! I was born into a Jain family so I have been a Jain all my life. For me, the path to achieving nirvana in Jainism is a step-by-step process akin to solving a puzzle. Through minor adjustments and constant reflection along the way, we are able to grow spiritually in this lifetime and draw one step closer towards enlightenment.

For the SJRS, what defines the society is our commitment to inclusiveness and tolerance. Regardless of our different understanding and interpretations of the Jain faith, we want to ensure that every Jain can practice their faith within the facility. As a leader of this community, I hope that we can unite as the Jains of Singapore in this journey towards enlightenment. I look forward to sharing with you more about Jainism this coming September!

More about the Singapore Jain Religious Society

While the Singapore Jain Religious Society (SJRS) was only officially registered in 1972, Jains were already practicing in Singapore since the 1910s. Religious activities were originally carried out at a rented facility on 79 Waterloo Street until 1978 when the leadership decided to raise money to purchase land for a space of their own.

Today, all activities take place in the Smt. Nirmalaben Chandulal Doshi Jain Sthanak which is located at 18 Jalan Yasin. According to the SJRS, there are approximately 1500 people registered in the Society with most of them being Singaporeans and PRs.

Organiser My Community Festival

Organiser of My Prayers and Practices: Singapore Jain Religious Society with P Timbadia

My Community Festival is a ground-up initiative showcasing Singapore’s best kept secrets and community stories through immersive tours, tastings and other cultural and heritage experiences.

4 Things To Know About The Festival

  • It is curated in collaboration with heritage practitioners, business owners, legacy brands as well as a number of religious and cultural institutions.
  • It builds upon the demand for culinary travel, cultural exploration and activity-based travel experiences - evident from the consumption habits of locals and tourists alike.
  • It aims to connect people from all walks of life through the festival platform in the hopes that they may go on to expand their social networks.
  • The festival has taken on an added dimension as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. It serves as a means in which to re-introduce locals back to the island’s ethnic enclaves and to support local, legacy establishments in a triumphant display of resilience as a community. Let’s come together to celebrate the Singaporean spirit after a challenging 2020.
