This competition tests the overall knowledge of students on Jain Philosophy, Jain History, Jain Conduct, Jain Literature, Ritual sutras, Tirthankars, Revered Jain personalities, the Jain Way of Life, and more.

JAB is a great experience for all participants. It helps increase their knowledge of Jainism, provides opportunity to forge new friendships with Pathshala students nationwide, and much more.

Apologies for any inconvenience. Our PR & finance team will be reaching out shortly to those that had signed up for the trip and will arrange for the refunds.

A big thank you to all the volunteers that had started preparing for the Jeev Daya Field trip.
