JAI JINENDRA! ( Sanskrit
Sanskrit
: जय जिनेन्द्र Jaya Jinēndra) is a common greeting used by the Jains . The phrase means "Honor to the Supreme _Jinas_ (Tirthankaras )"

The reverential greeting is a combination of two sanskrit words: _Jai_ and _Jinendra_ The word, _Jai_ is used to praise somebody. In Jai Jinendra, it is used to praise the qualities of the _Jinas_ (conquerors). The word _Jinendra_ is a compound-word derived from the word _Jina_, referring to a human being who has conquered all inner passions and possess Kevala Gyan(pure infinite knowledge), and the word "Indra," which means chief or lord.
