Samet Shikharji Dharmayatra
1st - 12th January 2018
Under the auspices of Param Pujya Bhaishree, we will be visiting not only Sametshikarji where 20 of the last 24 Tirthankers attained Nirvana and Moksha, but also many of the important kalyanak locations for Shree Mahavirswami, Shree Munisuvratswami, Shree Vasupujyaswami and Shree Gautamswami.
This Yatra promises to be momentous and comes in the year that we celebrate Param Pujya Bhaishree's 75th Birthday. Journey with us as we follow in the footsteps of so many enlightened souls, step by step climbing in devotion to our mountainous peak, a pinnacle of our striving where we will behold the vision of vitragta.
