In presence of  Terapanth’s 11th Acharya Shri Mahashraman Ji’s  saint Sadhvi Dr. Kundan Rekha Ji, wWith Sadhvi Parimal Prabha Ji, Sadhvi Sobhagya Yasha Ji, Sadhvi Kalyan Yasha Ji, Maskhaman Tapasya Abhinandan (a very important event) was celebrated.

Maskhaman refers to living without food for 1 month (Fasting for 1 Month). Person doing maskhaman takes only water for 1 month. It’s the biggest surprise that people doesn’t take food for 1 month. But it is seen in Jain Dharma. Whereas we can see that in today’s life we even can’t tolerate hunger for 1 day.

TAPASYA  is a way to get rid of sins or pap karmas. Till today 4 maskhamans have been already completed in Kesinga, 3 persons were welcomed & greeted on date 9.8.2011 &  1 was welcomed & greeted on date 29.09.2011. Still more to come.

From the day when Sadhvi Shri ji has arrived in Kesinga, long fasting & Tapasyas are going on in Kesinga. Kesinga has proved to be a TAPOBHUMI (Place of a number of tapasya or fasting).

On the day of tapasya abhinandan, A huge rally started from the Jain Bhawan covering whole the town.
Long queue of people walked in the street of the town. People were surprised & eager to see the tapaswis, who did maskahaman. The Rally started from Jain Bhawan, It passed & covered the whole town & at the end it came back to Jain Bhawan.Hundreds & hundreds of people participated in the rally. Not only Jain’s, Non- Jain people also participated in the rally. The whole town was in colour of tapasya.
