Shree Simandhar Swami Janma Kalyanak
Wednesday April 23, 2014
The auspicious occasion of Janma Kalyanak of Lord Simandhar Swami falls on 10th day of waning moon in the first Hindu month of Chaitra as per the Vir Samvat reckoning system. Born at midnight, the Lord is a living Arihant Tirthankara in Mahavideh Kshetra, another world outside our galaxy but within our universe. Because of the strong intent from a former birth, Simandhar Swami has a karmic account to propagate the Moksha Marg (the path of ultimate liberation from the birth and death cycles) for the living beings on Earth.
By connecting with the Lord through the grace of Gnani Purush Dada Bhagwan (the Enlightened Being), one binds favorable karmas due to which she or he is born in the Mahavideh Kshetra in future. There, one will experience His pratyaksh darshan (“in-person” devotional vision) the result of which is instant achievement of Keval Gnan (the final spiritual state of absolute Self-knowledge). Then, one attains Moksha after completing any pending karmas.
