Paryushana, Das Lakshana, Kalpasutra, and Pratikraman Literature in Jain eLibrary

Now Jain eLibrary website (www.jainelibrary.org) contains more than 7000 books and 5000 articles.  In almost 5 years, more than 20,000 registered users use this library and download average 250 files per day.

In order to provide some assistance to the Jain community during Paryushan and Das Lakshana celebration, we have searched the entire database for the following information:

  • Paryushan and Das Lakshana Parva
  • Pratikraman vidhi
  • Samvatsari Day
  • Kalpasutra

We found more than 150 books, articles, and audio files related to this occasion.  The copy of the search result is attached with this email.

We have various pratikraman information for almost all different sects of Jainism such as Swetambar, Sthanakvasi, Terapanthi, Shrimad, Kanjiswami, and Dada Bhagwan.

We have audio (mp3) files of daily pratikramans and Samvatsari pratikramans of Swetambar and Sthanakvasi traditions. 

For our English speaking youth and adults, we have also English pratikraman in text as well as in audio files.

Follow-up on List of Youth and Teachers Questions Project:

We have received more than 50 e-mails requesting answers to these list of 100+ questions.  We would like to indicate that to answer all these questions is not an easy task.  Many questions may have more than one answer.  For some questions, we may not be able to conclude an appropriate answer. 

Hence our effort is to organize a team who will do proper research and review any comments received from the community.  The selection criteria of team members would be those persons who are living in North America and have raised families here.

We have received three young teachers request to join this committee.  We request our senior Pathashala teachers to come forward and be a part of this team. 

Jain education workshop will provide a very good insight and assistance in compiling the answers.

Follow-up on Brett Evans’s Article on “A Perspective on Panjarapoles (Animal Shelter) of India”

We have received about 80 email responses around the world basically appreciating his work.  Brett is trying hard to respond individually.  However he and I will prepare general answer that will be distributed in a week or two.

Jaina Education Committee’s Request for your Financial Support

The primary activities of Jaina Education Committee are as follows:
