Rajpad Shibir Dec 2, Tuesday to Dec 8, Monday    

Swadhyaykar, Dr. Piyushbhai Shah, from Shrimad Rajchandra Mission, Dharampur will be conducting a shibir based on Param Krupaludev Shrimad Rajchandraji’s five esteemed compositions at Jain Center of Metropolitan Chicago.
Shrimadji’s five compositions, expounding Jineshwar Bhagwan's Vitrag Dharma, for the spiritual benefit of seekers include:
  • Jineshwarni Vani: Anant Anant: Shrimadji praises Jin Vaani in this short eight-line poetic composition. Jin Vaani is full of infinite virtues, contains infinite knowledge and viewpoints for the benefit of all living beings in the universe. Following Jin Vaani removes our attachment ("Moh") to the worldly desires and helps to attain Moksh.
  • Kaivalyabeej Shu?: Yamniyam Sanjam: From time infinite, I did not attain Right Knowledge (Atma Gnan) even though I did everything: "Yam" (5 great vows: Non-violence, etc.),"Niyam" (Fasting, and other vows), "Sanjam" (control over my 5 senses, and mind). Why? Shrimadji beautifully answers this question and provides the golden key to attain Keval Gnan (Omniscience) and Moksh (Liberation).
  • Mool Marg Sambhlo Jinno Re:Shrimadji inspires us to listen to "Mool Marg" or the main path to Moksh as laid down by Jinenshwar Bhagwan - Samyak Darshan (Right Faith), Samyak Gnan (Right Knowledge), and Samyak Charitra (Right Conduct) ki ekta and aviruddhta.
  • Marg Sacha Mil Gaya: An expression of joy and ecstasy after attaining the Right faith and Right knowledge and experiencing His Soul as different from Karma (Bhed Gnan) and attaining the Moksh Marg.
  • Amulya Tattva Vichar: Bahu Punya Kera Punjthi: Our rare and precious human birth must not be wasted on chasing after material and worldly possessions, but, in the pursuit of Self-Realization, and becoming free from the endless cycles of life and death.
The shibir on these 5 poetic compositions will be conducted in 9 sessions as follows:
