posted Sep 18, 2020, 12:13 AM by JCNC Technology

Shri Adinathay Namah:

 Shri Parshvanathay Namah: Shri Mahaviray Namah:


With 2020 being a special year, we have decided to do something special and unique to celebrate Diwali this year at JCNC. 


The JCNC Executive team is excited to announce the Diwali Cultural Program, in partnership with JCSC Sangh (LA) on 7th Nov. We are also going to have our own Mahavir Nirvan Day celebration on 14th Nov


For most, Diwali is a festival of lights, food & fancy clothes; however, for Jains, Diwali is a day of liberation of Lord Mahavir. Other days like Dhan-Teras, Kali-Chaudas, New Year & Gyan-Panchami each convey a different message to us as well. As such, this year we hope to convey these messages in various forms to our community in this special Diwali program. 

 

To celebrate Diwali, we are humbly requesting your participation. We are requesting your HELP to prepare either a Drama, Skit, Animation, or a Dance based on one of the suggested themes to deliver special messages.

 

***** Registration for performances for Diwali Cultural Program on 7th Nov *****

NOTE: Theme for this program is to represent GYAN PANCHAMI. All programs need to be directly related to GYAN PANCHAMI. We have LIMITED slots, so please sign up EARLY and we will confirm your entry as soon as possible.

બે અરીઆ ના જૈન સેન્ટર માં આ વર્ષે પર્વાધિરાજ પર્યુષણ મહાપર્વ ની શાનદાર ઉજવણી થયી .
આ વર્ષે COVID -19 કોરોના રોગ વાયરસે સમસ્ત વિશ્વ્ ને તેના ભરડા માં લીધું છે ત્યારે વિપરીત સંજોગો માં અને અતિ વિકટ સમસ્યાઓ ભર્યા સમય માં પણ સમસ્ત અમેરિકા માં ઉત્સવો ની ઉજવણી ONLINE માધ્યમ થી કરી ને સૌ ભક્તિ-સેવા કરનાર ભક્તો ધર્મલાભ લયી ભક્તિ રસ માં તરબોળ થયા છે અને ધન્યતા અનુભવી છે.
 
સિલિકોન વેલી ના મિલપિટાસ નગર ખાતે ના જૈન સેંટર ઓફ નોર્ધન કેલિફોર્નિયા ઉત્તર અમેરિકા નું એક એવું જૈન સેંટર છે જ્યાં પ્રાણ પ્રતિષ્ઠા વાળી પ્રતિમાઓ છે અને તે જૈન સંપ્રદાય ના દરેક પંથો જેવા કે સ્વેતામ્બર, દિગંબર, સ્થાનક્વાસી,તેરાપંથી અને શ્રીમદ રાજચંદ્રજી ના શ્રાવકોને એક છત નીચે જૈન ધર્મ ના તાંતણે બાંધે છે.

ફક્ત ભારત માં જ નહિ પરંતુ વિશ્વ્ ને ખૂણે ખૂણે વસેલા જૈન ધર્મના અનુયાયીઓ દર વર્ષે આ પર્વાધિરાજ પર્યુષણ મહાપર્વ ને ભારે હર્ષોઉલ્લાસ થી અને અતિ આનંદ થી ઉજવે છે. પર્યુષણ મહાપર્વ ના દરેક દિવસ નું ખાસ મહત્વ છે. જીવનકાળ દરમ્યાન જાગૃતિ લાવી ત્યાગ અને તપ નું વિશિષ્ઠ મહત્વ સમજી સતત મનન અને ચિંતન સાથે ઉત્સવ ઉજવવાનો ઉમળકો અને હોંશ કંઈક વિશેષ જ હોય છે. પર્યુષણ પર્વ માં ઉપવાસ, તપ  અને આરાધના દ્વારા આત્મા ની નજીક જવાનો ઉંડો સંકેત છે.
