Swadhyay(self-study) or reading Jinvani regularly plays an important part in the life of a Jain disciple. It is one among the six rituals to be performed daily.
People living in the city have busy lives and are far away from temples. After a tiresome day of work and studies, people find it difficult to concentrate while reading Jinvani alone. They sometimes have queries but are unable to ask and forget it afterward.
What is concall?
JinSwara Concall is an online swadhyay platform to join sadharmis from different cities and let them read & discuss Jinvani.
1. Online Class.
This class being online provides anyone sitting anywhere to connect and do swadhyay. All the queries while reading can be easily solved by discussing it with other sadharmis online.

Database of Images
A picture is worth a thousand words. An image can explain many things in a much better way. While there are many pictures floating on the internet, there is no centralized place where one can find pictures related to Jainism.
JinSwara Flickr profile aims to provide the largest library of pictures related to Jainism. Everything from pictures of Jain temple to charts can be found in the JinSwara Flickr.

Jain Flatmates Community
Since there was no specific group for Jain people, we had the idea came up to make a separate group for Jain people.
It is very difficult to find Jain people in an unknown city, so you can post all your queries in this group. The Jain Sadharmis in that city will surely help you.
This group is for every city. One can post all queries related to Jainism whether he/she is looking for a flatmate, Jain Dharamshala, restaurant in an unknown city on this group.
This group is on FaceBook and is public.
