 http://www.herenow4u.net/fileadmin/v3media/pics/persons/Acharya_Shivmuni/Acharya_Shiv_Muni.JPG Dr. Shiv Muni, head of the sect and fourth Acharya of Jain Shwetambar Sthanakwasi Shraman Sangh has announced that a congregation of saints belonging to this order shall be held in 2011. In order to make efficient arrangements for this conference, an executive committee has been constituted under the chairmanship of Shri Sumati Lal Karnawat and presidentship of Kesari Mal Burad (Bangalore). Other active community members working for this conference are Nemi Chand Chopra (Pali), Paras Chajjer (Mumbai), Mohan Lal Chopra (Nasik), Ramesh Chand Jain (Delhi), Vimal Chand Dhariwal (Arkonam), Sher Singh Jain (Delhi), Bal Chand Khakhad (Mumbai), Amit Rai Jain (Barot), R. D. Jain (Delhi), Salek Chand Jain (Delhi), Jawari Lal Kankaria (Pali), Anand Prakash Jain (Delhi), Manmohan Jain (Mujaffar Nagar), Lal Chand Jain (Delhi) and Sukhbir Jain (Delhi). A formal announcement about formation of arrangement committee is expected shortly.

Mr. Nemi Chand Chopra, a prominent leader of Sthanakwasi Sect informed Ahimsa Times, that this is going to be an important event for the community happening after 23 years. Last congregation was organised in 1987 at Pune. Although in that summit, it was decided to hold similar events every 5 years, but, it could not be worked out. This will be an opportunity for prominent saints to discuss many issues face to face and also to remove some of the misunderstandings prevailing for quite some time. It will give a chance to the saint community to frame rules and regulations concerning their movements, lifestyle and rituals. The issue of discipline etc. can also be discussed. The convention will benefit all concerned. According to Mr. Sher Singh, another prominent community member and office bearer of All India Sthanakwasi Jain Conference, they are working on the arrangements including exact date, venue and agenda of the conference. More than five hundred saints are likely to participate in this mega event happening in Delhi. The senior prominent saints likely to be present include Acharya Shivmuni, sarvashri Saubhgya Muni (Kumud), Roop Muni (Rajat), Amar Muni, Ramesh Muni, Ravinder Muni, Jitendra Muni.
