Jain Center Of Northern California is celebrating 121st Janmadin of ‘ ‘Shri Atma Siddhi Shashtra’-Rachana Din and also Janma Jayanti of Shri Laghuraj Swami-(Prabhushiji) on Sunday,  8th of  October, 2017 at our Jain Bhawan by doing Namaskar Bhakti of ‘Shri Atma Siddhi Shashtra’.  This will be followed by a dinner, please join all together with the family and friends to celebrate this event.

 ‘Shri Atma Siddhi Shashtra’ is a holy scripture, a sacred book. So also its author Shrimad Rajchandra is one of the adored, holy, true spiritual Master, the world has ever known.

‘Shri Atma Siddhi Shashtra’’ which describes and brings out the absolute purity of the soul in the form of a dialogue on the six aphorisms, lead to the further purification and liberation of soul. May it also lead to the attainment of self-realisation and ultimately the liberation of the aspirants of self-realisation who study it with reverence. 

Shrimad Rajchandra composed ‘Shri Atma Siddhi Shashtra’ on the night of October 22, 1896. (Aasovad ekam smavat 1952 per Hindu calander) at Nadiad, a town in Gujarat, specially for his ardent diciple Shri Sobhagbhai on his request to him. When Shrimadji wrote a “Chha Pada Patra” for Munishri Lalluji Maharaj (Shri Laghuraj Swami) and gave a copy to Shri Sobhagbhai for the benefit of their souls, Sobhagbhai exclaimed,”Prabhu at this age it is very difficult to remember this patra but if you give us something in the form of a poetry, it will be easier to remember and recite.”

Shrimadji composed flawlessly 142 stanzas in about 90 minutes without replacing a word for word, without pausing anywhere to think, and without using any reference of a book or scripture while writing and still totally covering the Jain Philosophy, the heart of Shri Mahavir and a path of self realization- Moksha- in this poetry, called ‘Shri Atma Siddhi Shashtra’
