Sri Jinaya Namah:
Dear All,let me share the following video on the Boomi puja function conducted for Bhagwan Mahavir Digamber Jinalayam at Saidapet- Chennai-15. To have a Jinalayam at Saidapet had been almost a day dream for Tamil Jains living in and around Saidapet.. Around 200 to 300 families may be living there. for nearly 15 years or more they were trying towards this end but could not achieve. however the desire was burning in them and on 24-8-2010 a piece of land (an old house )- roughly 1 ground (2800 sq.ft ) was purchased at a cost of Rs. 36 lakhs in the name of a Trust specially formed for this (Sri Bhagwan Mahavir Digamber Jain management Trust )by mobilising about Rs.30 lakhs money as donation from the jaina public.
Today . on the day of 62nd republic day Bhoomi Pooja for Sri Mahavir Jinalayam was performed in the Holy Presence of Upadhyay 108 sri Nijanandha sagar Digamber Munivarar and Aryaka Sri Prasannamathi mathaji and Sri lakshmisena Bhattaraka Bhattacharya maha Swamigal of Sri JinaKanchi Mutt at Mel Siththamur.
It is proposed to construct the Jinalayam in Ground + 2 floors of 850 sq.ft.each
It may cost 35 to 40 lakhs. they have to find source for this.
with this there are 9 digamber Jinalayam in chennai City.
