Jainism is a philosophy that believes in self growth. Via its three jewels concept of right vision, right knowledge, and right conduct, it conveys that any individual via clarity, curiosity, and action can progress towards their ultimate goal. This ideal can be applied to not only self improvement, but also social impact. As we aim to foster change and growth for the future, the 2018 YJA Convention will focus on providing and manifesting these three jewels to help create progressive change within ourselves and our communities.
