It is a great decision and will have a tremendous positive effect on Jain unity. Both Sri Jain Shwetambar Khartar Gachchh Sangh, Jaipur and Muni Tarunsagar Chaturmas Samiti had been working for a joint Chaturmas for last three- four months. There were several meetings, discusions and deliberations among various Jain communities including Digambar, Sthanakvasi, Terapanth, Tapagachchh and Khartar Gachchh regarding a joint Chaturmas.
Prominent Shravaks of all these communities worked hard and finally both the groups of Jain monks were came to a point of agreement. Both the committee members yesterday met Muni Tarunsagar (Digambar Jain saint) at Ajmer and Muni Lalitprabhsagar and Chandraprabh sagar (Shwetambar Khartar Gachchh monks) at Jodhpur and resolved all the issues.
As a result of final agreement monks of both the groups will enter in the Pink city (Nagar Pravesh) on July 14, 2013. The procession will start from Ramniwas garden and will reach to Manak (Badi) Choupad where both the groups will spread message of Jain unity.
There will be joint daily Pravachan of all three monks at Investment ground, Rambagh circle commencing from July 21. The lecture series will be continued till September 1. Paryushan Parv of Shwetambar Jain will be observed thereafter between September 2 and 9. Daslakshan Parv of Digambar Jain will be observed between September 9 and 18. The organizing committee will organize Samuhik Kahamapana (Forgiveness day) on September 19.
We, members of all Jain communities in Jaipur are grateful to Digambar Jain saint Muni Tarunsagar and Shwetambar Jain orator saints Mahopadhyay Lalitprabhsagar and Chandraprabhsagar for their greatness. We believe that rest of the Jain Sangh elsewhere in the world will be inspired to copy the event.
It is worth noted that all these three monks are great orators and attract large crowds in their sermons. Both Jain and Non-Jains used to come to listen them.
