The Holy town of Palitana will see a massive confluence of Jain Saints at the revered Shatrunjay Giriraj Mahatirth on the 13th day of Fagan month on March 21, 2016, to celebrate one of the most auspicious days, Fagan-Sud-Teras.

Jain Concept About The Soul
Jain concept about the soul differ from those of many other religions. The Jain word that comes closest to soul is jiva, which means a conscious, living being. For Jains body and soul are different things: the body is just an inanimate container - the conscious being is the jiva. After each bodily death, the jiva is reborn into a different body to live another life, until it achieves liberation. When a jiva is embodied (i.e. in a body), it exists throughout that body and isn't found in any particular bit of it.
Jain Story - Puniya Shravak
Once king Shrenik asked Tirthankar Bhagwan Mahavir about the state of his soul after death -where would it go? Thereupon Mahavir replied: “To hell.” The king wanted to know what he should do to avoid such a fate. Mahavir replied: “You can avoid going to hell provided you get the punya (good deeds) acquiring from one samayik of Puniya Shravak”. The king approached him with the request. Shravak asked him to find out from Mahavir the real worth (value) of a samayik
