On April 9, 2006 the Orange County Register reported, "When the Jain community breaks ground for its new spiritual center today, it will pave a path for a religious journey that future generations in Southern California may take... More than 500 people are expected to celebrate the groundbreaking at a Bhoomi Poojan, a spiritual ritual that celebrates the purification of the land and gives thanks to its spiritual leaders. The Jain group is about halfway through a three-phase $16.5million expansion. The project also includes a completed cultural center and the renovation of an education complex... The group expects to complete the center by October 2007."
