Anjanshalaka Pran Pratistha

“Anjanshalakha Pran Pratistha” is rather a familiar concept to us but we are very unfamiliar about the significance and importance of the actual procedure behind it. We have seen the glamour and pomp of the event but never pondered to understood its true essence.

Let’s try to get to know the term “Anjanshalakha Pran Pratistha” a bit better today.

Infusion of life in an Idol, Installation of “living-ness” in an idol, is the crux of Pran Pratistha. Lets dive deeper into it.

Initiation of life in an idol are based on thorough scientific calculations and well thought-out intentions, based on procedures, rules and regulations laid thousands of years ago in Agam Shastras by the enlightened wise Seers and Sages of Jinshashan.

Pure and positive energies, from the consciousness of the liberated souls who reside in the state of Nirvana at Siddhashila, is aligned to consecrate and initiate in to the idol by various powerful procedures and mantras under the guidance of an Acharya and Anuyogacharya only.

In the process of initiation of the idol as the Lord himself, the auspicious PANCH KALYANAK is performed on the idol beginning from Chyavan Kalyanak and ultimately perform Keval Gyan Kalayanak when the “ANJAN VIDHI” and “ADHI VASANA” are performed at midnight. The murti is embodied by the holy letters of “PANCH KALYANAK” where the idols energies transform into powerful, strong, spiritual vibrations & waves to take the form of a “life-like” Tirthankar.

A special Collyrium or ANJAN is prepared to adorn the eye of the idol during the procedure of Anjan Vidhaan by the Acharyas to initiate the idol into a living “Tirthankar”.

All the procedures are derived from centuries old highly sacred texts and literature accessible & permissible to the Acharyas and Anuyogacharyas only.

The aura of the idol (Jin Pratima) invoke pure, powerful vibrations of peace, compassion, love, devotion encompassing it. It creates a positive impact on the body, minds & souls of the devotees who worship it, which ultimately paves the path for the spiritual upliftment of the soul. Better concentration and meditative state can be easily achieved around the idol.

Hence, Jin Pratima and Jin Mandir holds the highest esteem and regard in Jain community. And given the honour of a Tirthankar Himself, the land is considered sacred where a Jin Pratima or Jin Mandir is situated.
