Their Paryushan program was graced with the presence of Tapovan Vir Sainiks and renowned scholars, Shri Nayanbhai Sanghvi and Shri
Shrenikbhai Vidani from Surat, Gujarat. The celebration started with 18 Abhishek Pooja (JCGC anniversary pooja) and a Swamivatsalya

Devasi Pratikraman and musical bhavna programs. Kalpasutra Vanchan, Mahavir Janma Vaanchan, and Swapna Darshan were celebrated with the usual
fanfare. Pathshala kids performed Saraswati Poojan under the guidance of Vir Sainiks followed by Nishal Garnu with great passion. Samvatsari
Pratikraman was attended by over 200 members, which was followed by Kshmapana and Tapasvi Bahuman. The celebration was concluded with Tapasvi
Parana. All 8 days of Paryushan volunteers had set up beautiful Aangis and decoration to the Jinalaya. JCGC continued organizing bhojanshala
for all sadharmik shravaks and shravika for Paryushan. This year, JCGC witnessed phenomenal Tapasyas in the Sangh, which is a moment of
pride for the Sangh.
