MAHAVIRA JAYANTI CELEBRATIONS


MAHAVIRA JAYANTI CELEBRATIONS
April 9th 2017

This year Mahavira Jayanti and second Sunday of ISJS’s monthly lectures fell on the same day. So both events were combined and a grand function was organized on the occasion at Acharya Sushilmuni Ashram, Defence Colony, New Delhi.

The program started with mangalacharana and pravachan of Upacahrya Sarlaji on philosophy of Lord Mahavira. This was followed by lectures by ISJS faculty members on Ahimsa (Smt. Abha Jain), Anekant (Dr. Kamla Jain) and Aparigraha (Dr. Shugan Jain). The lectures were clear, crisp and as per the canons, and very well received by all. They were followed by devotional songs on Mahavira by Smt. Bala and by three children using musical instruments followed by group Aarti of Lord Mahavira. All the attendees enjoyed a warm and sumptuous lunch and traditional thandai drink afterwards. The video recording of the entire program is available on https://youtu.be/CP0mRkqBVN4

This is the first time that more than 100 (packed capacity of the hall) Jains took part in an ISJS lecture, which happened to be the 25th lecture in the series as well.
