Shantiniketan Malaysia

Shantiniketan Foundation Malaysia is a legally registered Jain religious trust established in 2001 under the blessings & guidance of world renowned Pujya Bandhu Triputi Maharaj, a trinity brotherhood union of Jain monks, namely His Holiness (Late) Shri Munichandraji Maharaj, His Holiness Shri Kirtichandraji Maharaj & His Holiness Shri Jinchandraji Maharaj.

Pujya Bandhu Triputi first visited Malaysia in 1991, during their visit to Singapore to attend The World Jain Conference. Together with Archarya Shri Sushil Kumarji Maharaj, they held religious lectures and discourses in Malacca, Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh and Penang. In 1998 Shri Bharat Jasani invited Pujya Gurudev Shri Jinchandraji Maharaj to perform the first ever Shree ParshvaPadmavati Mahapoojan ever to be held in Malaysia.

Responding to the tremendous reception during the same period, a proposal to set up a trust was forwarded to Gurudevs. Shantiniketan Foundation Malaysia was officially launch by Pujya Gurudev Shri Kirtichandraji Maharaj in 2000 during a formal function held in Kuala Lumpur and witnessed by various dignitaries from India and Malaysia. The trust was legally registered in June 2001. Since then Pujya Bandhu Triputi have been visiting Malaysia on a regular basis.
