On September 9, 2018, the Jain Society of Houston held its annual Sapna Boli event, a tradition highlighting the auspicious dreams of Queen Trishla foreshadowing the birth of Lord Mahavir Swami. Jain center thank all of their volunteers, attendees, and donors for bringing this event to fruition.

The Palitana, Sharunjay Tirth, is the most sacred Tirth for Jains. The Shatrunjay hill has over 3000 small/big temples and 27000 idols, making it the world’s largest temple complex. Every devout Jain aspires to climb to the top of the mountain at least once in his lifetime because of its holiness. On Kartik Poonam, devotees, in very large numbers climb the hills as it opens after four months of closure during the monsoon season.

Jain Society of Houston was transformed into the sacred hills of Shatrunjay on November 4th, Kartik Poonam. Yatris walked through the Moksha dwar towards Jay Taleti and then to Babu nu derasar and other big/small temples of the tirth. They entered through the Ram Pol, Haathi Pol and into Dada no Darbar. Doli walas, phool walis and pooja passes were available to complete the jatra. Yatris ended their jatra by eating Sev-Bhoondi and Bhel at the Bhata Ghar. Over 400 yatris did Bhav Yatra of Shatrunjay Maha Tirth!! The event was inspired by Shri Hiteshbhai Doshi.

Recently, Jain Society of Houston celebrated India's republic day on January 22, 2017. Kids sang Nanha Munna Rahi, performed patriotic dance and shadow play on Bharat Humko Jaan Se Pyara Hai. Event was followed by lunch.
