In a remarkable gesture echoing the spiritual path chosen by their children, a wealthy Gujarati couple has made a profound decision to relinquish their material wealth.

Their altruistic act, carried out in February of this year, is set to culminate in an official ceremony on April 22. During this ceremony, the couple will sever all familial ties and embark on a journey of spiritual enlightenment. As part of their commitment to this path, they will forgo all material possessions, retaining only two white garments, a bowl for alms, and a ‘rajoharan’—a symbolic white broom utilized by Jain monks to sweep insects away, symbolizing their dedication to non-violence.

Their decision to renounce wealth and worldly attachments underscores a profound commitment to spiritual values and the pursuit of inner peace. The lavish ceremony marking this transition serves as a testament to their unwavering dedication to a life of simplicity and devotion.”
