Jain Vishva Bharati London has planned a trip to Kolkota from Monday 23 October to Sunday 29 October 2017.

There will be an opportunity to get blessings from His Holiness Acharya Mahashraman and visit the holy pilgrimage of Sammet Shikharji where 20 Jain Tirthankars attained liberation.

The trip has been planned to coincide with the half term of school children and we hope that you, your friends and family can join this pilgrimage. Getting the blessings of an Acharya and visiting one of the holiest Jain pilgrimages within a short a period of one week is indeed a rare opportunity and it's still not too late to register your interest.




Shri Shikharji is the holiest of all Jain tirths. 20 out of 24 Tirthankars of the current avasarpini, and countless other siddha, attained moksa here. It is situated on a group of eight hills called the Parasnath Hills in Giridih, Jharkhand. In his book, Mahopadhyaya Lalitprabh Sagar ji describes Shikharji as follows: "When just one auspicious event of one Tirthankar can convert a place into a pilgrimage, it will be quite impossible for human intelligence to assess the holiness and power of that pilgrimage where as many as twenty Tirthankars have lit-up the inextinguishable light of nirvanaSamet Shikhar is that pilgrimage which we can hail as the "Shikhar" (Summit) of the first light of nirvana." Really, Samet Shikhar is an astonishing, unique and awakened holy pilgrimage. Even today, the atmosphere of Samet Shikhar contains a sort of holiness."  For a detailed description of Sammet Shikhar, click the following link
Please note that you are able to customise your trip if you wish to stay longer and we can assist you to plan accordingly. 

This is a golden opportunity and circumstances prevailing a place to visit at least once in a lifetime......

Costs....everyone pays for their own flights, and internal costs are minimal. For further details, please contact Mr. Jeet Dhelaria on 07802890333 or email jvblondon1(at)gmail.com
