SPECTACULAR MOKSHAKALYANA OF CHANDRAPRABHA TEERTHANKARA AT SHRAVANABELAGOLA

Shravanabelagola, March 6: In a significant yet glittering dharmic event in the Jain calender, monks and nuns converged on the Matada Basadi here on monday afternoon to perform the Moksha Kalyana Pooja of Chandraprabha Teerthankara, the eighth of the 24 Jain Teerthankaras.
The pooja, conducted to mark the day when Chandraprabha Teerthankara attained Nirvana or salvation, Phalguna Shudda Sapthami according to the Hindu calender, featured panchamrutha abhisheka being offered to
the marble idol of the Teerthankara in the Basadi, a Jain temple, apart from Nava Kalasha Abhisheka, Nahaashtadhravya Pooja, Shanti Mantra and Nirvankand.
The Panchamrutha Abhisheka on the glittering white marble idol seated in the Padmasana sytle using sandalwood, turmuric, vermillion and other solutions was a feast to the aching eyes of the devotees thronged inside and out the Basadi. The Teerthankara's idol came out in array of colours, in a sight both divine and godly, during the panchamrutha abhisheka.
HH Jadaguru Karmayogi Swasthishri Charukeerthi Bhattaraka Swamiji conducted the pooja in the presence of Acharya 108 Vardhamana Sagar Muni Maharaj, Acharya 108 Gunanandhi Muni Maharaj and Acharya 108 Devsen Muni Maharaj, among others.
