Jai Jinendra

Jai Jinendra! (Sanskrit: जय जिनेन्द्र Jaya Jinēndra) is a common greeting used across the Jain community which means "May the religion established by the Jinas prevail in our hearts".

The term derives its usage from Jina, which is the highest state of enlightenment a human being can achieve. It reflects the pillars of Jain philosophy, like asceticism and inner enlightenment.
