Jai Jinendra,

Please mark your calendar. We are very excited to announce 'Nav Tatva' shibir at JCNC by Pandit Dhirubhai Mehta for 9 days from 6/23 to 7/5 in two phases (see the schedule below). 

Scholar Introduction:
Pandit Dhirubhai Mehta has studied from the very famous YashoVijay PathShala in Mahesana, Gujarat. Panditji has been teaching Jain scriptures for over more than 40 years. Panditji has taught shravaks, monk-to-be, and monks on variety of Jain scriptures ranging from basic scriptures such as Nav Tatva to heavy aadhyatimik scriptures and logic (nyaya) scriptures. Panditiji has written a lot of books, and especially has translated several Sanskrit books into Gujarati. Panditji has been visiting United States for more than 25 years now. His simple yet lucid and interesting way of teaching has made him extremely popular all across India and United States.

What is NavTatva?
Nav = nine
Tatva = elements (identified by their virtues)
NavTatva contains 9 fundamental elements that are essential and fundamental to Jainism.
1) jiv (soul), 2) ajiv (matter), 3) aashrav (karma influx), 4) bandh (karma bondage), 5) samvar (stoppage of karma), 6) nirjara (shredding karma), 7) paap (spiritual demerit), 8) punya (spiritual merit), 9) moksha (liberation)
'Nav Tatva' is such a basic conceptual scripture that it is a prerequisite to learning other high level Jain scriptures.
