Jain Tirth Yatra (JTY) is an endeavour to facilitate tirthyatras for all spiritual aspirants.
The Lives of the Great, Omniscient Tirthankar Bhagwans were epitomes of profound tapa and sadhana. They blazed the spiritual trail for each of us to attain ever-lasting bliss. They taught us how to live pious lives and remain calm and compassionate even in the most trying circumstances. The people They encountered and the objects They touched became sanctified. Tirths are those holy places where Tirthankar Bhagwans attained Nirvana, leaving their mortal bodies for the very last time.
Discipline of body and mind; the right companionship of fellow pilgrims and prayer and worship at such holy sites are truly uplifting. Indeed, tirthseva - pilgrimages and worship at these tirths - features amongst the eight qualities indicative of samyakatva!
Temples in Jain tirths throughout India are remarkably clean and sacrosanct. Before entering, worshippers don clean clothes and leave worldly objects like shoes, bags and umbrellas outside. Thus free in body and mind, they step in with bowed heads and reverent hearts.
Several Jain temples are renowned for their architectural excellence as well. As is appropriate in a place of worship, the focus is on the Idol or Image of the Tirthankar. He is usually shown standing or seated in meditation, bearing a solemn yet deeply peaceful expression. Each Idol carries a sign, known as lanchhan, on Its base, distinguishing each Tirthankar. For instance, Bhagwan Rushabhdev is represented by a bull and Bhagwan Mahavir by a lion.
The sanctity of such temples and tirths are such that few can remain unmoved after atirthyatra.
The Idea came up with a discussion among likeminded group of people in the year 2013, the time was right and the wheel started moving from the discussion towards determination.
As we surveyed and talked to many Gurudev,Sadhviji,Elders and young generation the answer that we got was almost the same that this is the
need of time and there should be some work done religiously in this direction.
finally we went ahead and started this project and we believe it will help Jain Tirth Yatri a lot and also it will help others in understanding the
Jain Religion and get Tirth information in historic details.
Our Vision and Mission behind this project is very simple and straight forward.
Every Tirth have some or the other importance & historic value related to Tirthankar Bhagwant, Acharya Bhagwant, Various Kings and Rulers of India.
This website will have all such information in well described details and we wish to spread this in every nook and corner of the word using high end technology & world wide web.
Increase in visitors to Tirth Places is as important as spread of religion by itself. Visit to Tirth places gives an needed attachment with the religion, we come across the work of our ancestors and Tirthankar Bhagwant.This develops a feeling of satisfaction and being up close to those Tirth gives immense happiness.
By visiting our website, Tirth Yatri will for sure get attracted to the graceful beauty of Tirth, its unique and hereditary carvings and sculptures.
Thus keenness to visit such Tirth will increase.
This website will have in-depth details of various Tirth along with fully interactive 360 Degree Virtual Tours,were one can feel the real presence of the place by getting view of each location from all the possible angles.
Younger generation only gets attracted to what they can see and feel in real time, this feature rich website will provide them with all such options.
It is always seen and heard that after an age our elders starts feeling low that as they cannot travel they are not being blessed by the visit to the Tirth. Same feelings are of those who are bed ridden due to health reasons.
This website will provide Bhav Yatra of each and every Tirth across India. We will do a fully interactive 360 degree virtual tour with easy navigation and other useful features.
Most tirths are located a good distance away from cities, atop hills or mountains. While such an environment is conducive to deep worship and meditation, it is often a challenge to find suitable accommodation facilities nearby.
Especially when you travel with a large family or lead a sangh, it could take numerous telephone calls, time and effort to reserve accommodation in the dharamshala of your choice.
Besides, the elevation you feel on your tirthyatra can increase manifold when you know the significance of the tirth before you visit it. Knowledge about the mystical events that occurred there thousands of years ago cannot but make a devoted heart sing with joy. Especially today's younger generation, who is naturally curious and accustomed to getting answers instantly, is often ignorant and uninterested in undertaking tirthyatras because of lack of knowledge.
Thus, while a tirthyatra is an invaluable medium to purify ourselves, ignorance about its significance and tedious booking processes can often make it a cumbersome task.
While tirthseva is an invaluable medium to purify ourselves, booking accommodation near the sacred places is often a tedious process. Especially when you travel with a large family or sangh, it could take numerous telephone calls, time and effort to reserve accommodation in the dharamshala of your choice.
