Re: Maun Agyaras/Ekadashi
- Jai Jinendra,
I also noticed that this day is marked as "MahoUpadhayay
Yashovijayji Smirti Divas".
Does anyone know why?
PS: For those not familiar, Upadhyay Shreemad Yashovijayji Muni is
one of the most prominent munis who was around 300 years back.
Extremely prolific, he also was honored with 'Nyayvisharad' title by
the Pandits of Kashi -- a rare achievement for a Jain monk.

all books, articles etc describe it as the very important for lay
people. I know that its the day where 150 Janma Kalyanaks occured
for 90 Tirthankars but not too much more than that. It's thought to
be the best day for religious activities (bearing in mind of course
that ideally you should do as much as possible everyday). I was just
curious about how significant the day is to Jains in other parts of
the world and what do you do? It would be really interesting to find
out. Your help would be as always greatly appreciated.
