Munishri Tarunsagarji

  Munishri Tarunsagarji is the revolutionary Jain Monk of 21st Century. He does not give his Pravachans in Jain temples. He says, "I want to escape from the temples. That is why I have stopped giving pravachans in your temples. I give Pravachans in the squares of roads, because I want to see Mahavir out of temples. My only wish is to free Mahavir from the hands of Jains, and want to spread his thoughts in masses". He is doing what he says. Jain Munishri Tarun Sagarji  shows the world how a Muni could spread Jainism in masses without showing any miracles.

Munishri Tarunsagarji discourses are attended by the masses of every religion because he speaks the truth for the welfare of society. The highest number of the people was 5 Lakhs when he delivered pravachan from Red Fort of Delhi. Munishri Tarunsagarji addressed the Maratha Light Infantry Regiment on September 21, 2005. Perhaps Munishri Tarunsagarji is the only first saint who received the Guard of Honor by Indian Army.

  During his visit to a small town, having population of just 5000, his pravachans were attended by 40,000 people every day for one full week. All types of people, including common people and politicians, Jain and Hindu monks, teachers and students, intellectuals, journalists, businessmen etc, attend his discourses.
