JSMC is honored to have presence of Dr. Shri Tej Sahebji, Shri Jinaybhai Shah and Shri Sampratibhai Shah during our celebration of Paryushan Mahaparva.
Dr. Shri Tej Sahebji is not a new name for JSMC. With a PhD in Jainism he has been conducting paryushan parva and ayambil oli across India, UK, Belgium and USA.  He has been teaching Jainism in various colleges of Mumbai University. His mission is to spread the message of Jainism throughout the world. It is our extreme pleasure to welcome our own Shri Tej Sahebji as this year's Paryushan Dignitary. 
Shri Jinaybhai, also known as Guru Maharaj no dikro, has learnt Jain philosophy under guidance of Yugpradhan Acharya-sam Pujya Panyas Shree Chandrashekhar Vijayji Maharaja Saheb. Since 2000 he has been visiting various Jain sanghs across the world to celebrate Paryushan Maha Parva. He also offers special workshops to young audiences covering practical understanding of various Jain philosophy. His honorary spiritual services have inspired many people to live Jain life-style.
Shri Samprati Shah is a young and passionate singer from Ahmedabad, India. He is among the outstanding singers of Tapovan associated with it for over fifteen years. Trained by renowned classical singer Guruji Shree Aniket Khandekar his voice is filled with divinity by the graceful blessings of Pujya Guru Maharaj Chandrashekhar Vijaya ji.
