Previously at Siddhachalam:

Guruji Punya Tithi, Run for Ahimsa &
24 Hour Namokar Mantra Jaap

Jai Jinendra.

April 22 is Guruji’s punya tithi. Twenty-three years ago – on April 22, 1994 – Guruji left for devlok.

Guruji influenced many in different walks of life and changed the course of modern Jain history in significant ways. He definitively laid the foundations of Jain studies, research, practice and faith outside India in our times, and gave those within India an enlightened way to appreciate and cherish the key principles of Jain thought and practice, free from narrow confines of sect or dogma.
As we approach the 23rd anniversary of his demise, you might find it useful to peruse through our website to read more about Guruji and Siddhachalam or visit the ashram and its library.
