Respected Shravak and Shravika,

Pranam.
 
Melbourne Shwetambar Jain Sangh (MSJS) is pleased to inform that the Aaso Maas Navpadji Oli / Aayambil Oli starts from Tuesday, 16th October 2018 to Wednesday, 24th October 2018 (from Aaso Sud 7 to Aaso Sud 15).

As per Jainism, Navpadji Oli is considered as Shashwati Parva. It means Navpadji Oli festivals exist in all time cycles (past, present and future).

During these nine days, one should do Aayambil - means - Eat once in a day in one sitting- a simple spice free food, boiled or cooked without milk, curd, ghee, oil, green/raw vegetables, fruits, dry fruits and sugar.

To celebrate this occasion Melbourne Shwetambar Jain Sangh (MSJS) has organised Samooh Aayambil along with  Sattar Bhedi Pooja, Video Pravachan and Children Snatra Pooja at MSJS Centre on Saturday, 20th October 2018 & Sunday, 21st October 2018.

Important :

To enable all Sadharmik to participate in Sattar-Bhedi Pooja and Pravachan, MSJS has made arrangements for Aayambil as well as normal meal (Lunch). 

Those who do not wish to do Aayambil are welcome to participate in Sattar-Bhedi Pooja and have normal meal instead. RSVP is required for all meals. 

For any queries, please email us on info@msjs.org.au.

Regards,
MSJS Management Committee

Sattar-Bhedi Pooja

Saturday, 20th October 2018 (09:45 AM for 10:00 AM start at MSJS Centre)

Sattar Bhedi Pooja is usually performed to do prayaschit for any ashatana done in Sangh Derasar or Sangh events throughout the year (Example: Sneezing during Samvatsari Pratikraman). MSJS has organised this pooja to bring peace, happiness, prosperity, and good health for all.

MSJS will provide all required items for the Pooja. However, as we know, it provides immense satisfaction to do Pooja with personal items (sva-dravya). If you wish to use sva dravya, Sangh will be happy to provide you required guidance. 
We request all Sadharmik to come in Pooja clothes to participate in Sattar-Bhedi Pooja.
