Jainism as a religion is older than Buddhism but isn't very well known outside of India. But if you live in the Bay Area you could get a glimpse of Jain monks and scholars from India and the US. They are gathering together for the 10th anniversary celebration of the Jain Center of Northern California in Milpitas. Shobha Vora is the president of the community and has insight into the differences between Buddhism and Jainism as well as what the Jain Center has been up to for the last 10 years.
