Das Laxan Maha Parva 2018

Friday 14th September till Sunday 23rd September

As we approach Das Laxan Parva, we are presented once again with an excellent opportunity to make significant in-roads in embarking and furthering our individual spiritual journeys… So come and join in the celebrations !

This year,  we are very fortunate to have the pleasure of Dr Sanjeev Godha as our visiting vidhvaan who will conduct lectures in Hindi. He is a renowned scholar all over the world and we urge you to make the most of this opportunity. He will be taking lectures in way of seminars as well. Our cultural team have been extremely busy over the summer vacation to make this an eventful celebration. We look forward to supporting their efforts.

We are also trialling a half hour Pravachan by Pujya Gurudevshree Kanji Swami on weekends, with HINDI subtitles to encourage and introduce new comers to Gurudev’s vani, as suggested by Hemantbhai.

We will also endeavour to stream Dr Godha’s lectures daily on https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJDDq4_1jXMk5DVWUWTKYYQ  (please note that there is a underscore between number 4 & 1)  or search for the channel ‘Mahavir Jain Temple Lectures’

Swami vatsalya

by Secretary SDJA

For this year’s Swami Vatsalya bhojan, the cultural team have organised something very special. You are invited to witness the wedding of Rajkumar Shree Nemikumar with Rajul, a very famous event in Jain history, which will be enacted by a group of talented budding actors, selected from our very own membership. The performance has been planned and rehearsed over the last few months, and promises to be an engaging and memorable event.

The venue for the wedding enactment is the Masefield Suite at Harrow Leisure Centre. There is free parking for 3 hours at the leisure centre, however, A VALID TICKET MUST BE DISPLAYED. We have confirmed with HLC, that if anyone needs to park for longer than three hours, another free ticket can be obtained from the machine to cover a further 3 hours.

Please aim to arrive there between 11am and 11:15am (no Indian timing please). As with any Indian wedding, the performance will be followed by a delicious lunch, which will be served from 12:30pm.

This will be a Swami Vatsalya bhojan not to be missed. To register your place at the event, please provide your name and numbers to our Pujari Nileshbhai. There is a £10 charge per person, £5 for all children under 8. To enable us to make accurate catering arrangements, please provide your details no later than Wednesday 26th September. Please note that there will be no entry to the dining hall without a ticket that Nileshbhai will issue at the time of putting your names down.

Dhwaja Arohan Sunday 2nd September 2018 The Dhwaja is a symbol of any Mandir to highlight to any Saadharmi that here resides a virtual Samovasaran in these premises! The Dhwaja Rohan (flag raising) ceremony is symbolic in cementing that Jain Dharma is well and truly alive in this 5th era. On this day, we will conduct Jinendra Maha-Abhishek at a later time to enable those that may have not participated or witnessed this wonderful and humbling ceremony before. It is Hemantbhai’s sincere wish that as many male members young and old take part in the maha abhishek. It is an ideal opportunity to introduce this privileged activity to the younger generation and we would enourage all families with little ones to attend. They are also invited to recite a prayer if they wish to do so. The programme for the day will be as follows: 08.00 – 09.00: Gurudev’s CD Pravachan 09.00 – 10.15: Jinendra Maha-Abhishek, Prakshalan & Puja 10.15 – 10.45: Hemantbhai’s Swadhyay 11.00 onwards: Dhwaja Arohan
