Mahavir Janm Kalyanak

Respected Shravak and Shravika,

Pranam,

Chaitra Sud 13 is a Mahavir Swami Janm Kalyanak - a very auspicious day for all Jains. Over two and a half thousand years ago Trishla Mata gave birth to the last Tirthankar of the current era, Shree Mahavir Swami Bhagwan. This year Shree Mahavir Swami Janm Kalyanak is on Tuesday, 4th April 2023.

MSJS will be celebrating this special occasion with all sects of Jains in Melbourne on Sunday, 2nd April 2023, and will recall the legacy that Shree Mahavir Swami Bhagwan has left with us.
