Acharya Shri Chandanaji


Acharya Shri Chandanaji possesses the rare combination of patience found in decades of contemplation and a vision of the greater good. She chose the path of Mahavir and took Diksha to diligently accomplish far more than a religious mandate. She has empowered and touched the lives of countless needy people through education, health, and justice with complete loyalty and dedication. But this task would not have been possible without the unyielding support of a team of Sadhvis, who are self-realized, positive, and empathetic towards making a difference to mankind. ‘Acharya Shri’ Post given by Pujya Rashtrasant Amar Muniji in 1987 and she is the first ever Jain Sadhvi to receive the prestigious title of “Acharya” in the Jain ascetic community since the time of Lord Mahaveer (2600 years). She accepted it as a respect for all women. (Please see more details in the attachment)

The Veerayatan principle mission of Seva (help other human beings and animals), Siksha (Educate other human beings), and Sadhana (along with Seva, and Siksha continue your spiritual progress) is very conducive to uplift the morality and spirituality of our children born and raised in North America.

Sadhvi Shri Sanghmitraji


Sadhvi Sanghamitraji, prior known as Mangalam, is associated with Veerayatan Jain Temple, Bihar, India, since her childhood. At the young age of 6 years, she memorized Bhaktamar, Kalyan Mandir and Tatwartha Sutra and many other Jain Stotras. She has learned Sanskrit and Prakrit along with other Jain scriptures. She is blessed with an enchanting melodious voice which has mesmerized and touched the hearts of thousands of people around the world.

She lived in the US for many years before she took Diksha. She has translated the spiritual and social welfare messages of Acharya Shriji into melodious songs and conveyed them to people around the world. She is now efficiently handling Veerayatan Global.

Sadhvi Sanghamitraji is deeply involved in many initiatives at Veerayatan. She has started Veerayatan Global to spread the message of the work of Veerayatan worldwide and act as a conduit to share achievements and best practices. She is also actively involved in the Veerayatan Schools Project to build schools at all Jain pilgrimage sites which inculcate moral values in children, including most recently at Palitana which the foremost Jain site for pilgrims.

Sadhvi Sanghamitraji’s Badi Diksha took place at our center - the Jain Center of Northern California (JCNC), Milpitas, California on April 8, 2012.  Badi Diksha celebration video is available at http://www.jcnc.org/home/news/dikshavideolinks (please see more details in the attachment)

Swamiji.jpg

Bhattaraka is said to mean a scholar who has mastered all branches of knowledge and arts with an unquenching thirst for knowledge. A Bhattaraka is expected to be well-versed in religious knowledge acquired through intense study and to be the well-wisher of monks and great souls. He should propagate religious principles.
The present Gurupeetha was founded in 1220 by the then Pontiff, Swasti Shree Charukeerthi Pandithachayavarya of Shravanabelagola Mutt.
Moodbidri Mutt is a great seat of Jain Bhattaraka (Jain Pontiff) and one of the most prominent Jain Mutts. The Bhattarakas hold the literary title, ‘Charukeerthi Swamiji’. They have been pontiffs of Jains and kings alike and wield great influence, command, and respect in Royal Darbars (royal assemblies) of all the states in India. The Bhattarakas of the Moodbidri Jain Mutt has been very famous for their accomplishments in learning Sanskrit, Prakrit, Jainology, herbal medicine, and philosophy.
Presently, this sacred seat of the Bhattaraka is held by a young and energetic sage who is enthroned on this religious seat of Jain Mutt as a successor to the previous Swamiji. He secured a Diploma in computer science and civil engineering vasthu architect in Building Construction. He had his post-graduate education and obtained M. A. in Economics and Vastuvisharada (a course on traditional Indian architecture). At present, the Swamiji is the supreme Head of a lot of institutions such as Ramarani Research Centre, Sri Mahaveera College, swassthi Shree residential Jain Pre-university College, Gamaka School of Art, Choodamani Art Gallery and also the Managing Trustee of the famous 18 Jain Temples of Moodbidri which includes world- famous Thousand Pillar Temple and Siddhanta Temple which has invaluable, antique and precious stone-idols. He also runs an old age home for the old and a free student hostel..
He is one of the promoters of Bharathiya Sanskrithika Parishad of Karnataka, Jeevan Vigyan Academy of Bangalore and Animal Kindness Society of Bangalore. He is the Head of the Moodbidri Chapter of World Conference for Peace and Religion. He is the Managing Trustee of Dhavalathraya Trust (Regd.)
“Vivekabhyudaya”, a popular monthly propagating the Shramana Sanskrithi (Jain culture), is being published for the last 76 years by the Jain Mutt.
Right from the day of his becoming the Head of the Jain Mutt, the Swamiji kept himself busy in all kinds of religious, cultural and social activities and he organized the literary conference and religious functions. He attended conferences worldwide and carried out the work of his predecessor and gave Moodbidri a new distinction as a center of religious activities, art, and culture.
He was the principal speaker at the 2000th-millennium celebration of Jesus Christ in Mysore. He is one of the members of “Jnana Peetha Foundation”, Delhi, which confers the prestigious national literary award every year called “Jnana Peetha Award”. The Swamiji was the honorary guest at the 10-day Jain ritual called “Dashalakshana Parva” in Nepal in the year 2000.

Fun Fair: JCNC has been an awesome place for Students and Parents to come together and progress spiritually, make friends and build relationships. Graduation Day Fun Fair is all about friends having fun together at Temple. We will have multiple Stalls with games, prizes and give away. Students have been working hard and studying all year long and Graduation Day is planned as a Fun Day.

 We are looking for volunteers to help organize games and run them at the Stalls. Please review the spreadsheet below and signup for game stalls you can lead. In addition, if you have other games/ideas please feel free to add to the spreadsheet and sign up as volunteers. For games, JCNC policies need to be followed and preapproved by the Education team.
