Temple Handouts were created to help Jains perform rituals that are typically done at the temple, such as Chaityavandan and Guruvandan. Remembering a ritual’s various steps and their order can present a challenge, and reading and following instructions written in Hindi or Gujarati can be difficult for those who are unfamiliar with the languages. In order to alleviate these issues, the guides below include an English transliteration of sutras, pictures accompanied by directions, and a link to sutra recordings, as applicable.

Note: be sure to dress in fresh clothes and drink water before perusing any of the following materials!
