Both Digambar and Shwetambar Jain societies in Jaipur are trying to have a combined Chaturmas.
Great Jain orator saints Lalitprabh Sagar and Chandraprabh Sagar have agreed to observe their Chaturmas 2013 in Jaipur organized by Sri Jain Shwetambar Khartar Gachchh Sangh. SimilarlyDigambar Jain Muni Tarunsagar has also been observing his Chaturmas in Jaipur.
Manak Kala, convener, Tarunsagar Chaturmas Samiti and Jyoti Kothari Secretary, Khartar Gachchh Sangh met Muni Tarunsagar at Ajmer yesterday to discuss joint Pravachan of both Digambar and Swetambar Jain saints. Swetambar Jain monks Lalitprabh Sagar and Chandraprabh Sagar are also in favor.
Discussion with Muni Tarunsagar yielded a positive outlook and both the Sangh in Jaipur are working on unity. We are hopeful of a historic Chaturmas in Jaipur where both Swetambar and Digambar saints will sit in an united platform. All of these saints are capable of attracting huge crowd even in their individual capacity. Thousands of people used to hear them wherever they speak. They attract crowd from Jain and non-Jain communities breaking barriers of cast, creed and religions.
We can just imagine, what can be happened when all these three orators will sit together. There is a vast Jain population (Swetambar and Digambar both) in Jaipur. This Jain population amalgamated with other communities will create very large audience. We can hope for more than 25,000 spectators in the sermons between July 21 to September 1 at Dashara Maidan, Adarshnagar area in Jaipur.
All necessary permissions from the administration is already taken. Khartar Gachchh sangh is all set to arrange these speeches. All of you are cordially invited.
