Bhagwan Mahavir was once giving his discourses in Champanagari and he saw Ambad parivrajak (wandering monk) proceeding towards Rajgruhi. He stopped him and said, “On reaching Rajgruhi, tell Shravika Sulsa that Mahavir has wished her Dharmalabh”.

Ambad parivrajak started thinking about Sulsa and her piety and devoutness since Bhagwan Mahavir also held her in high esteem. He thought of testing her devoutness and assumed the form of Yati and asked for sachitta (living matter), but Sulsa remained unperturbed. Then he assumed the form of Brahma and the entire city gathered for his worship but Sulsa was her usual self, undisturbed. Next day parivrajak was Shiva incarnate, and on the third and fourth day, he was Vishnu and Tirthankar (builders of the ford) incarnate. Tirthankar is worshipped by sixty-four Indras and the parivrajak assumed the form of the twenty-fifth tirthankar.

The last weekend, 40 Young Jains gathered in Saugutuck, Michigan for the annual #MidBEST Retreat. Sessions ranging from Rethinking Consciousness to exploring Stress and Veganism allowed attendees to start deeper conversations and explore topics that we directly and indirectly encounter every day. Activities ranged from friendly competitions of Bowling and a Bake-Off to late night rounds of Mafia and Antakshari.

The weekend flew by, but YJA knows the connections made, the knowledge gained, and the memories in 15 passenger van will resonate with them far beyond the weekend.
