Shri Simandhar Swami Vees Viharman Poojan:
Simandhar Swami is a living Tirthankar who is said to be arihant, currently present and accessible, in another world within our universe. Tirthankara Simandhar Swami resides on Mahavideh Kshetra, another world within our extended universe (see Jain cosmology).
On Mahavideh Kshetra, Sat Yuga, a spiritually elevated time-cycle exists continuously. There, living Tirthankaras perpetually incarnate. At present, 20 Tirthankaras reside there, Simandhar Swami being one among them.
Worship of Simandhar Swami is said to be particularly beneficial because, of the 20 living Tirthankaras on Mahavideh Kshetra, he resides in closest proximity to our world, Bharat Kshetra. Also, due to a binding-intent from a previous birth, he carries a karmic obligation to serve the spiritual liberation of Bharat Kshetra’s jiva, living beings. Simply knowing of Simandhar Swami’s existence allows anyone to receive his grace.
Simandhar Swami and the other 19 Tirthankaras living on Mahavideh Kshetra will attain moksha, final liberation after completing their ayushya karma, life-span karma. There are numerous references to Simandhar Swamiin Jain scriptures.
