The 5th day after Diwali is known as "Gyan Panchami". Gyan Panchami is celebrated as a day of honoring knowledge and holy books. In Jainism, this day is a time for students,scholars and everyone to celebrate Jnana, the divine or transcendent knowledge or wisdom. It is a day of worship of pure knowledge.

Gyan Panchami is the festival celebrated by Jains to recognize the importance of their scriptures. The books preserved in the religious libraries are cleansed and worshipped.. "Gyan" is the natural light of inner soul. It is this light that is believed to help us differentiate between good and bad. Hence, Gyan is also known as 'the third eye' or 'the second sun'. It is this natural inner light that is prayed to ward off ignorance and reveal the knowledge of karma, thus, wisdom replaces ignorance or foolishness. Like most festivals celebrated in India, Houses are cleaned, temples are lit with lamp. Special poojas are performed in homes


Many Jains fast on this day. They do dev vandan (offering veneration to the Gods). Holy recitation and Pratikraman is performed. On this day, many take a vow to do a fast every month on the fifth day of the fortnight of the waxing moon for continuous five years and five months.

Following sloka is recited on this day,

"Samkit Shrddhavantane Upanue Gyan Prakash,

Pranamu Pad ha; Tehana, Bhav Dhari Ullas"
