- AYAMBIL Oli ON 13/04/2019 and 14/04/2019
Jains observe the festival of Shashvati Navpadji Ayambil Oli that lasts for nine days, twice a year. Jains perform Ayambil Tap for Nine days to salute Nine Supreme Posts (Navpads) in the universe. These are Arihant, Siddha, Acharya, Upadhyaya, Sadhu, Samyak-Darshan, Samyak-Gyan, Samyak-Charitra and Tap. Ayambil is a special type of tap where one eats only boiled grains that are cooked without oil, sugar or spices as well as no vegetables, no fruits and no milk products.
This special form of tapasya helps us to control our sense of taste, to be celebrated on 13th April Saturday and 14th April Sunday, 2019
