DALLAS, TX – Siddhayatan Tirth, on May 13, inaugurated North America’s first and largest Jain-Hindu pilgrimage site in Windom, TX, near here.
Hundreds of people from around the country gathered to be the first to witness the dedication of 60 acres of holy sites and an 11,000-square-foot Jain-Hindu temple.
The day was filled with music, dance, a procession, and a spiritual address by founder Acharya Shree Yogeesh, who guided the proceedings.
He founded Siddhayatan Tirth in 2008 in Windom. Sadhvi Siddhali Shree, a U.S. Army Veteran, and Sadhvi Anubhuti are spiritual teachers and award-winning filmmakers who help lead the organization.
“The inauguration of this meditation park and its temples gives all Texans the opportunity to learn of the rich traditions demonstrated in the Jain and Hindu communities throughout the Dallas – Fort Worth metroplex,” Greg Abbott, the Governor of Texas said in a statement.
