Kolkata, 10th February, 2011

The 147th Maryada Mahotsav was celebrated in the pious presence of Sadhvi Shri Kanakshri ji, the learned disciple of Acharya Shri Mahashramanji at the Jain Swetamber Terapanthi Mahasabha Bhawan under the guidance of Terapanthi Sabha, Kolkata. At the beginning, Sadhvi Shri Kanakshri ji with due respect read out the 250 year old written Maryada Letter by Acharya Shri Bhikshu and also explained that this letter is the base for the celebration of the Maryada Mahotsav.

Tripdi Prayer, Jai-Jai Sashan: Jai Maryada and ‘Sangpurush-Chirayu Ho’ - the celebration started with the chanting of these Sanskrit Mantras. The atmosphere became religious with the dramatized presentation of the ‘Sangh purush! Asthamay Naman Hamara’, creation of Sadhvi Shri Kanakshri ji.

Sadhvi Shri Kanakshri ji highlighted the historical aspect of the Constitution of Terapanth written by Acharya Shri Bhikshu and the 4th preceptor, Jayacharya that - the Terapanth religious group is small in size but large in species. Although it is 250 years old but its management has the esteem capability of providing guidance to the various modern era religious institutions. Sadhvi Shri also said - the reason for the strength, diversity and development of Terapanth is because of its unified guidance, decorum and discipline. Sadhvi Shri read out the rules written by Acharya Shri Bhikshu and the other Co-Sadhvis expressed their gratitude and respect towards Acharya Shri by solemnly promising to abide by the rules. On this event, the innumerous co-followers expressed their respect towards ‘Shrawak Nistha Patra’ (the letter of allegiance) and took an oath to carry out the established code of conduct.

Sadhvi Madhulekha ji said - the faith, service and dedication of the Terapanth is a three dimensional solution to all the problems. She also said that indiscipline is the root problem of today’s era. There should be discipline at homes and amongst families.

Sadhvi Madhulata ji, Madhulekha ji and Shantiprabha ji presented a song.
