Recent Temple Activities


Jain Center of Greater Boston had great Diwali celebrations. They started celebration with Namokar Mantra by Mummies and kids followed by amazing performances by Pathshala kids during the. Kudos to all the teachers who have worked so hard along with the kids. JCGB appreciates to all the volunteers who are always ready and willing to do selfless services.




Jain Center of Greater Boston celebrated Paryushan and Das Lakshan with great enthusiasm and spirit. For this year’s Paryushan pravachan, we were fortunate enough to have Sadhviji Dr. Sahejaji with us who believes that religion should not be confined to traditions but also be practiced in our daily conduct. Sadhviji’s morning pravachan covered "Loggass Sutra Vivechan" and evening pravachan were about Life of Lord Mahavir from different angles. Specially focusing the children, Sadhviji encouraged us to celebrate Mahavir Janm Mahotsav and conducted Pratikraman in simple English so children could grasp the essence of Pratikraman.

For this year’s Das Lakshan pravachan, we invited Pandit Tikamchandji Jain who possesses great breadth and depth on Jainology. Panditji’s daily pravachan covered Panchastika book and ten Dharma. Panditji also conducted Panch Parmeshthi Vidhan which is probably the largest vidhan conducted at JCGB this year.

At the end of Paryushan and Das Lakshan, we had a Kshmavani Day Celebration. The program included Kshamavani message, rewards to children for doing small austerities and Tapasvis' bahuman, followed by Sangh Swamivatslya.


JCGB will be participating in a Sidhhachalam Yatra from at the end of September 2013. For more details, please visit...
