Bhagwaan Mahavira Moksha Kalyanak Pujan at His Tonk, Deepawali 2013

Acharya Sushil Gurve Namah

This Thursday, October 23, is Deepawali!

2,541 years ago that day, Bhagwaan Mahavira, our last Tirthankar, attained moksha after having shown us the path to do so, and His ganadhar (chief disciple) Shri Gautam Swami attained kevalgyan (absolute consciousness). Ever since, we celebrate the historic day as Deepawali.

Deepawali Mahaparv celebrations at Siddhachalam begin at 4:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 23, and continue through 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 28. This is the last opportunity this Fall to stay at the ashram before most cabins are closed and the Tonks and Guruji’s prathima at Tapasya Sthal are veiled. Welcome!
