Shree Mahavir swami Panch Kalyanak Pooja
Saturday, June26, 2021 @ 2pm - 5pm
 
We are inviting you and your family to join Panch Kalyanak pooja during our derashar 28th anniversary. We have created unique opportunities for you to join pooja.
 
Five Kalyänak (Auspicious Events) 
 
Kalyänak are the five major auspicious events in the life of a Tirthankar. 
 
 
This is the event when a Tirthankar’s soul leaves its previous body and is conceived in the mother’s womb on earth. 
When a Tirthankar is born, heavenly gods, due to their utter respect and devotion to the Tirthankar, come down to the earth to celebrate. 
This is the event when the Tirthankar gives up all his/her worldly possessions and becomes a monk/nun. When a Tirthankar renounces the worldly life, he attains Manah-paryäya Jnän (telepathy), the fourth type of knowledge. 
This is the event when a Tirthankar attains omniscience when he completely eradicates four kinds of defiling Karmas, known as Ghäti Karma. This is the most important event for the entire Jain Sangha as the Tirthankar reestablishes Jain Sangha and preaches the path of purification and liberation. 
This is the event when a Tirthankar’s soul is liberated from this physical existence and becomes a Siddha. Now the soul of a Tirthankar is free from the endless cycles of birth, death, and re-birth.
