Brief description of this Pooja:

This Puja has been created by Munishri HemVallabh Vijayji Maharaj Saheb (Guru of our own Shrim Vallabh Maharaj Saheb (Sahilbhai Shah before diksha)). It is a poetic creation to worship "Girnar Mahatirth". There are eleven sub-Pujas in this "Navanu Prakari puja". In each puja there is a historical count of Nine (9) names by which this tirth is known.


Munishri has described the visits of countless liberated souls to this auspicious place and attainment of MOKSH. The narration in this puja also tells us about renovation/restoration of this tirth place (Jirnodhdhar) by many great souls of ' Shravak, Shravikas, Merchants and kings'. It also talks about changes in size (area) of this tirth with changes in time cycle. But it reiterates the ETERNITY (shashvat state) of this tirth
