जा वाणी के ज्ञान से, सूझे लोकालोक,
सो वाणी मस्तक नमो, सदा देत हूँ धोक ॥
Dear All
Jai Jinendra!
Wish you all a very Happy Shrut Panchami and many thanks for participating in the celebrations @ SJM.

As we all are aware that our most sacred & holy religious book Shatkhandagam (the foremost and oldest Digambar text) got written on Shrut Panchami i.e. Jyeshtha Shukla Panchami by Muni Pushpadant & Muni Bhutbali.
Sri Jain Mandir took a great stride today by starting the age-old tradition of celebrating Shrut Panchmi annually in the temple. The event was celebrated with full vigour and enthusiasm.
Abhishek, Shantidhara and PujanThe program commenced with Abhishek, Shantidhara and Shantinath Bhagwan’s pujan followed by Shrutpanchami pujan. New Cloth was offered to Shatkhandagam Granth so as to protect it and as a Shrut Panchami ritual.
Swadhayay Session- After Pujan, there was Swadyay session by Ahimendra Ji who gave an enlightening discourse on the importance of Aagam, its volume and the immense knowledge within it. 
Aagam Quiz -Pujan was followed by the most awaited online Aagam quiz in which 40+ people participated. Jaikant Singhai, Apoorva Jain and Shikha Singhai secured 1st, 2nd and 3rd position respectively. The quiz can be replayed by downloading Kahoot App on your device from the following link : 
SJM Advisor Vijay ji, hosted the quiz and explained about the following swadhayay videos available on the SJM YouTube channel, which can be accessed from the website.

Important Note: It was announced that people can do swadhayay from the above series and then thematic quizzes can be organized on a regular interval on the demand of the people doing swadhayay. Also people who commit to do Swadhayay everyday are invited to select any of the  Shastra from the above list and approach Vijay ji (647-987-8643) within a week; he will make arrangements to provide the hardcopy of the book free of cost.
