ABOUT SHIKHARJI

Shikharji Giriraj, popularly known as Parasnath hill is one of the most worshiped mountains globally. Nestled in the Giridih district, Jharkhand, India, this hill has witnessed salvation of 20 out of 24 Tirthankaras, hence ranking as the most holy mountain for the Jains. To add to its grandeur, innumerable saints have also attained Nirvana on this holy land.

This pilgrimage place has been created naturally with insurmountable vibrations of Tirthankaras and innumerable saints at the time of their Nirvana. Recreating or searching for an alternative is out of question due to the absence of Tirthankaras in current age.

Nearly, all the Jain devotees across the globe make it a point to visit this Tirth atleast once in his/her lifetime. Several devotees pay visit to this Holy Hill on yearly basis too.

This movement is organized by Jyot and guided by visionary Gachchadhipati Shrimadvijay Yugbhushansuriji Maharaja. It is with respect to fresh development initiated by the existing Government’s actions which has severely affected the sanctity of the Shikharji Hill. This movement is primarily led by Jains’ of all sects (Shwetamber,Sthanak and Terapanthi) to save Shikharji Tirth from the ungodly and unjust actions of the Government against the entire Jain community.

As per this movement, Jains are pressing hard to get their most revered Shikharji Hill declared as a #PlaceOfWorship by the concerned authorities of the Government. Mecca Medina, Golden Temple, Vatican and Jerusalem are the most significant places of worship for Muslims, Sikhs, Christians and Jews respectively. In the same vein, Shikharji Thirth is regarded as the top most place of worship of Jains.

INJUSTICE TO JAINS

Although there is a clear provision under said Bihar Land Reforms Act that Govt. cannot take charge of any place of worship. Nonetheless, the govt. has unjustly acquired the hill.

All for Good. Good for All.
