Snatra Pooja

Snatra Pooja has been created by Pandit Shri Veer Vijayji Maharaj in a very poetic style. It illustrates the celebration of two of the auspicious (out of five) events (Kalyanaks) occurring in last life of Tirthankar Bhagwan. Two Kalyanaks narrated in this Puja are Chyavan (conception) and Janma (birth) of Tirthankar.

This Puja recital explains the effect of Bhagawan’s birth on the whole universe, narrates how glorious the occasion was and how much joys were shared by all the living souls including all heavenly souls.

Puja in end includes Ashta Prakari Puja and wishes Shanti (peace) for all living beings and rejoices the event by performing Aarti, Mangal Divo, Shanti Kalash and Chaitya Vandan.
