Schedule

Every day of the Shri Dharampur Tirth Anjanshalaka-Pratishtha Ashtahnika Mahotsav is an opportunity to revel in divine festivity. A chance to celebrate the 5 Kalyanaks of Tirthankar Bhagwan.

Jina is a pure, peaceful state of the soul. The idol of the Jina establishes a conviction of that. The necessary transformation, or emulation, or path to attain that peaceful state is called ‘Jain’; – One who walks that path will become a true Jain.
