Sri Siddhachalam Jain Tirth

Siddhachalam is a Jain ashram and teerth located in an idyllic setting in rural north-western New Jersey on 120 acres of hilly terrain. It is managed by International Mahavira Jain Mission, an independent, religious public charity in special consultative status with the United Nations. Siddhachalam was founded in 1983 by the Jain saint Acharya Sushil Kumarji.

It was here that Guruji, as he was lovingly called, perfected the secret science of sound behind the Navkaar Mantra. The mantra is considered by Jains to be the most auspicious of all mantras. It was also here that he practiced and taught the Jain form of yoga called Arhum Yoga. Guruji left his human body in April, 1994. There is no successor to Guruji.
