SCVP also runs classes for adults. We have instituted a two year foundation course which covers all core aspects of Jain philosophy. The course is delivered by a panel of expert teachers (mostly in English) some of whom have a PhD and MA in Jain studies. The classes are interactive and provide an opportunity for participants to undertake research into topics which are being taught and present their findings to the class.The classes make the learning experience relevant to modern society and encourage debate and discussion to crystallise understanding.
