Tosday (February 18), at Chandragiri Teerth in Dongargarh, Rajnandgaon district, Chhattisgarh, the revered Jain seer, Acharya Vidyasagar Maharaj, peacefully passed away. His departure came as he chose to embrace death through the practice of ‘sallekhna,’ a voluntary fasting unto death undertaken for spiritual purification.

Confirming the solemn news, the teerth released a statement announcing that Acharya Vidyasagar Maharaj attained Samadhi through ‘Sallekhna’ at 2:35 am.

According to the statement, “Maharaj was staying on the teerth in Dongargarh for the last six months and was unwell from the last few days. For the last three days, he was observing sallekhna, a religious practice of voluntarily fasting to death, and had quit intake of food and liquids. According to Jainism, it is a vow taken for spiritual purification,” the statement said.
