Dr. Vinod Jain received early exposure to Jain spiritual practices from travelling Jain monks.Throughout his life he has adhered to the Jain practice of being a vegetarian and engaging in meditation and self-reflection. He believes that his grounding in Jain religion has continued to shape his worldview and his values in significant ways. He currently works as a technology and management consultant and is a certified leadership and life coach.
