The Doctorine of life
The tenet of Jain philosophy 'Service to Mankind' is basic to the functioning of the Surana Educational Institutions. The Jain doctrine believes in sound morals and establishment of close relationship between happiness and goodness. Jainism believes that the youth shall be made aware of, and alive to, the higher values of life and to a steadfast pursuit of these values.
It is his vision of providing various platforms for the youth to learn and imbibe the quality of service and leadership through which, they would be empowered to give back to society, whatever they owe.
