Chaitya Paripati

Chaitya Paripati is one of the Kartavyas of Paryushan which involves visiting multiple derasars after Samvatsari. The excellent response from all participants in 2010 has motivated MSJS to organize Chaitya Paripati in 2012 once again. This will involve visiting few homes of sadharmiks having Pratimaji's across Melbourne from 09:30 to 14:00 on Sunday, 23rd September.
