The mantra is at the core of Jainism worldview. The chants are to be taken under the guidance of Shri Praveen Rishiji Upadhyaya who is a Jain Monk.

The full event will be Shri Jain Seva Sangh, a community of about 3 lakh Jains. The President of Shri Vardhaman Sthankavasi Jain Shravak Sangh, Mr. Parasmal Dungarwal stated “The meditation will be held from 8.30am to 10.30am at T-19 Towers, besides Sundaram Honda, Ranigunj”

The second initiative involves eight days of fasting by 1008 Jains and their Monks. From 17th to 24th July, the fasting will begin from in Chennai and conclude in Hyderabad. These Jains will be accompanied by 20 leprosy patients. The fasting is coordinated by Lalalitayi Jaangda who works with 800 Leprosy patients.

During the fasting, the people can only consume hot water only till sunset. After sunset, even water consumption is not allowed.

In Jainism, fasting is an important aspect. During festivals and other important occasions, most Jains fast as part of celebrations.
