Special Cover on Shree Bahubaliswamy Mahamasthakabisheka Mahotsava released on 17th February 2018.

The word Mahamasthakabhisheka is a combination of three words viz: Maha (great), Masthaka (head) and Abhisheka (anointing) which literally means ‘the head anointing ceremony’. Unlike the other idols the ceremony is called Mahamasthakabhisheka and not Masthakabhisheka. This is because the ceremony is performed only once in 12 years on the contrary the abhisheka to the Gommata idol at Gommatagiri is performed every year. The earliest one on record took place in 1398 A.D. and the latest in 2006 A.D.

On the occasion of grand inauguration of Mahamastakabhishek of Gomateshwara Bahubaliswamy, a special cover was released on 17th Feb. 2018 at Shravanabelagola. The Special Cover was released by the holy hands of Pujya Bhattarak Charukirti Swamiji, head of Shrikhetra Sravanabelgola. Jainism Philately Group was instrumental in release of this cover and it’s Karnataka State Convenor Mr. Mahaveer Kundur has designed the Special Cover and cancelation. (Special Cover Approval No. KTK/11/2018).
