A Jain monk is all set to create a religious record of sorts by launching the “biggest Indian book” that will be 25-foot high,17-foot wide and around two-foot thick in Ahmedabad on Saturday.

Tarun sagar,well-known among the Digamber sect for having left home at the age of 13 to become an ascetic,will collate all his sermons in Kadve Pravachan that gives a realistic take on living the righteous life in contemporary times.

The book,a collation of six parts of 150 pages each,will be made of iron pipes,flex and colour.

After it is measured and tested for the record by the Limca Book of Records,it will be kept for public viewing for eight days.

“The first edition of my book was launched in Ahmedabad,hence it is fair that a record be created here,” said Sagar.

Hailing from Madhya Pradesh,Sagar is one of the first religious gurus whose sermons were telecast on religious channels daily to almost 122 countries as he started giving sermons at a young age.
