Ms VAGHELA (Western Metropolitan): On another note, I had the pleasure of attending the Bhoomi Poojan, a ritual performed to consecrate the land before commencing construction for the new temple and the centre for Melbourne Shwetambar Jain Sangh in Moorabbin. The function was attended by 300-plus members of the Jain community from all over Melbourne. I was joined by my parliamentary colleague Nina Taylor MP.

Jainism is an ancient religion grounded in the principle of non-violence and teaches us how to live without harming any being, creature or the environment around us, which is the virtue and true spirit of living in harmony. The Jain centre serves the spiritual, cultural and educational needs of the Jain community in Melbourne. It has been running successfully under the leadership of current president Nitin Doshi.
