On the 13th day of the bright half of the month of chaitra, in the year 543 before the Vikram Era (599 B.C.) the overjoyed royal family was blessed with the birth of one of the greatest propagators of the Jain tradition. The child was named Vardhamana, who later became 24th Jain Tirthankar.

We are happy invite you all for Siddha Chakra Maha Pujan on Sunday, April 13 (Chaitra Sud 13). Please note Panch Parmesti Vidhan is now on Saturday, April 12 (Chaitra Sud 12), at JCNC.

Panch Parmeshthi Viddhan  & Siddhachakra Pujan Description

The literal meaning of Pujä is adoration.  Jain Pujä, as a minimum, is for auspicious adoration to Tirthankars and their teachings, strengthen our faith in Tirthankar’s teachings, enhance our spiritual practice, and increase our endeavor for liberation and for maintaining the temple and Pratimäji free of ritual-faults and keeping them pujaniya (worthy of worship).

Panch Parmeshthi Viddhan

In this pujan, we pay our respect to Arihanta, Siddhas, Upädhyäys and all Sädhus.  Together, they are called Pancha Paramesthi (The five supreme spiritual people).  In this Pujan we worship their virtues rather than worshipping any one particular entity. This pujan reminds us that, we need to be like them.  This pujan creates positive vibrations around us, and repels negative ones. This puja will be conducted in Digambar tradition.

Siddhachakra Pujä

The Siddhachakra Yantra depicts our whole religion, the principal nine elements and the whole dharma, the whole religion is presented in this Siddha Chakra. The Siddha Chakra means - 'siddha' means liberated and 'chakra' means release of karmic bondages. When we worship the Siddha Chakra one soul becomes liberated of karmic bondages.The Siddha Chakra puja was first performed by King Shripal and Queen Mayana to celebrate the completion of Ayambil Oli. 

 

This puja will be conducted in Shwetambar tradition.
