What is Deshna ?
Deshna is a type of religious speech in the Ardha Magadhi Language. As per Jainism after a Tirthankar gains infinite knowledge ( keval Gyan ), they gives out speeches in a place called Samosarana, where all creatures are welcomed (including non-human creatures, humans, and angels) and those speeched are understood by everyone in their own languages.
Is this a another "Jain" website ?
Well.. Yes and No. We are definitely a Jain site but with a different focus and mission. Most of the Jain sites available on the internet do provide information about the Jain temples and Jain communities but little focus on providing Jain literature in today's context. Our focus is not only to preserve and extend the reach of existing Jain literature and Jainism but also to provide insight into the relevance of Jainism in today's world. Towards that goal one of the few things we are working towards is getting Jain Shastra digitalized.
