On the auspicious day of aso vad ekam, V.S. 1952 at Nadiad in Gujarat, Shrimad Rajchandraji wrote the legendary treatise Shri Atmasiddhi Shastra for the spiritual upliftment of a multitude of souls aiming at self-realisation. The succinct and accurate composition is a masterpiece in philosophical literature, where, through simple questions and answers he explains the quintessence of Jainism.
To keep this divine event alive forever and to express utmost gratitude, under the auspices of Pujya Gurudevshri, a beautiful memorial has been built at the sanctified site where the sacred text was written.
During the restoration, the original doors, wall fittings etc. have been used to maintain the pious vibrations. The statues of Shrimad Rajchandraji and Shri Ambalalbhai have been placed in the same posture as they were when Shri Atmasiddhi Shastra was being written. The interior ambiance has created an evening effect, as if the same is being written at that moment. An array of panels with Shri Atmasiddhi Shastra exquisitely engraved in Shrimad Rajchandraji's own handwriting adds to its beauty and magnificence. Publications and recordings related to Shri Atmasiddhi Shastra can be obtained from the Divine Shop.
On 19th October 2013, an elegant octagonal Jalmandir was inaugurated at this holy site. In the centre of a serene lake, enhancing its beauty and sanctity is a majestic 5 foot 3 inch fibre pratimaji of Param Krupalu Dev Shrimad Rajchandraji in padmasan posture seated on a white lotus. A tree behind this pratimaji symbolises His eternal shelter to all. A walking track has been designed surrounding the Jalmandir ensuring that all those who use it, will automatically perform a pradakshina around Param Krupalu Dev. Engraved wooden panels bearing Param Krupalu Dev's quotes embellish the track.
This sacred memorial for the invaluable Shri Atmasiddhi Shastra at Nadiad will serve as a constant reminder and preserver of the potent and profound spiritual message propounded by Shrimad Rajchandraji.
