MARYADA PATRA

  

 Maryada Patra is Terapanth’s Code of Conduct for all ascetics written by Acharya Shri Bhikshu. His Holiness Acharya Shri Bhikshu’s foresightedness is reflected in the fact that the ‘Maryada Patra’ has stood the test of time, and continues to guide the conduct of Terapanth Sect even after 240 years.

Maryada Mahotsav, is an auspicious yearly occasion when nearly all Jain Shwetambar Terapanth monks and nuns gather. On this occasion, the Acharya reads out the rules of conduct to the saints. The Acharya also announces the tasks for the coming year, and the travel plan for all saints.
