Please note the location of the Pratimaji Shila Poojan & Takna Mahotsav has changed from Nadiad to Dharma Rashik Tirth Vatika, Vasna, Ahmedabad due to a change in Acharya Shri Jagvallabh Suri Maharaja's 2078 chaturmas location.

Respected Shravak/Shravika,


With the blessings of Dev, Guru, and Dharma, the work of our Jinalaya is progressing well in India and here in Melbourne. Our collective dream has started becoming a reality. 

After the remarkable and momentous event of "પ્રભુની મૂર્તિ આત્માની અનુભૂતિ " on Sunday, 6th March 2022 Shri Melbourne Shwetamber Jain Sangh is taking the next step towards the actual carving work of Pratimajis (Prabhuji & Dev-Devi). 

As per the guidance provided by the Jinalay project Nishradata Acharya Shri Jagvallabh Suri Maharaja Carving work will commence on the auspicious day of Ashadh Sud 10 (Sat 9th July 2022). All pratimajis would be carved in keeping with vidhi prescribed by gurudevshri under their prayerful supervision at Vasna Jain Sangh in Ahmedabad (Acharya Shri Jagvallabh Suri Maharaja's 2078 chaturmas location).
