SJM Daslakshan / Paryushan updates
Jai Jinendra all,
We are glad to see increasing number of visitors to temple in this paryushan. We had record breaking crowd last Sunday joining panch meru vidhaan and taking dharm laabh under the guidance of Pt Dharam Chand Shastri and Brahmcharini Rekha ji.
I am thrilled to announce that we have made a significant achievement in this Paryushan. Last Sunday we asked people to pledge to do dev darshan and the person pledging for the highest number of days of dev darshan (outside of Sundays and Paryushan) in this year was rewarded to do shanti dhaara.
List of people who pledged do dev-darshan. I would like to congratulate all of them in their spiritual journey and offer anumodana.
Ravinder Vijaya – 251 days
Akash Apoorva – 52 days
Rishi Nidhi – 21 days
Vikash Neha – 21 days
Pinkesh Anamika – 16 days
Raaj Surekha – 7 days
Vijay Manisha – 5 days
With this arrangement, we should be able to open SJM all 365 days of the year! This is like a dream come true!
Please forgive me if I missed anyone here. For those, who were not there on last Sunday for Shantidhaara and could not make a pledge, please reply to this email with your pledges. We will add it to the list.
