Diwali celebrations on Oct 15th

Jain Society of North Texas (JSNT) hosted Bhagwan Mahavir Nirvan Kalyanak celebration on Oct 15th 2017 in Dallas Texas.  The event was celebrated with an excellent attendance of over 1000 attendees. Over 125 Pathshala Students enthusiastically performed skits, stavans and dances to present Jainism principles of Bhagwan Mahavir. The presentations were educational to all age groups. Everyone was thrilled to see the spectacular shows and the audience felt great pride to see the students perform. Thanks to the JSNT members who generously participated in fundraising goals and JSNT exceeded the goals. Pictures of the performances:

JSNT recognized all the Tapasvis from Paryushan & Das Lakshana Maha Parva during the Tapasvi Anumodna at the event. The celebration concluded with a delicious Diwali feast which was cooked by over 50 volunteers in the JSNT kitchen. The event was made truly memorable by the energy and excitement of the Pathshala students, volunteers and all the attendees. The entire Jain community in the Dallas area had a very memorable celebration.
