Pujya Dada Bhagwan’s blessings have helped millions of his devotees attain peace and tranquility in their lives. His 112th birthday anniversary is going to be celebrated in Mumbai in a grand manner. On this occasion, a 13 feet tall idol of Jain’s current Tirthankar, Shri Simandhar Swami, along with idols of Lord Shri Krishna and Lord Shiva, will be installed at the first NishPakshapati temple being set up. The installation ritual will be performed by Dada Bhagwan Parivar’s torchbearer, Pujya Shri Deepakbhai. The ceremony will be held between 08-10 November at the temple located at Rishivan, Kaju Pada in Borivali East. This would be the tallest idol of Shri Simandhar Swami in the city. The suburb will also witness an extraordinary celebration of the occasion, thanks to Anand Nagri, that is set up at the Chiku Wadi grounds in Borivali west where numerous edutainment and spiritual activities will be held for children and elders alike. There will also be a unique stage play along with a series of other offerings.

The number of visitors this year is expected to be in lakhs this year as well. Anand Nagri, Chiku Wadi, is going to become the epicenter of the entire program in many ways. Anand Nagri is spread across a four lakh square feet area. At Anand Nagri, visitors will get an opportunity to participate in Q&A satsang session of Pujya Shri Deepakbhai Desai himself.
