What is Arhat Vandana?

Arhat Vandana is a collection of canonical maxims written in the ancient language of Prakrit. Its recitation enables studying (swadhyaya) of the Jain scriptures (agams). It therefore acts as a catalyst for the subsidence and even destruction of knowledge obscuring karma. Each verse of this great prayer acts as a template for our daily activities including thoughts. Arhat Vandana awakens our spiritual consciousness.

Arhat Vandana is based on the teachings of Lord Mahavir. It begins with the Namaskar Mahamantra and concludes with Mangal Sutra. The remaining verses are selected from the Jain agams. Its recitation is therefore not confined to any particular Jain sect. Acharya Tulsiji composed this prayer in 1968.
