New Jain centre 'Preksha Meditation Center' built on 6,000-square-foot is due to open at Housten. Over $2 million raised entirely from voluntary donations has been spent in the construction. The facility's main room features a 3,600-square-foot cardinal-pyramid meditation hall, shaped to enhance the meditation experience. Beginning with only 40 followers at the inception of JVB Houston 10 years ago, the Jain organization has seen tremendous growth.
