Shri Premsurjiswaji, 97, a highly revered Jain monk and who was the chief of Tapagachha sect died recently. Not surprising, Jains consider it to be a great honour to support and take part in the funeral rites of such eminent monks including lighting the pyre and rituals that follow. In keeping with this spirit, 5 members of the Jain community, a builder, a doctor and three other business persons raised a combined 11,11,11,111 which is more than 11 crores to light the funeral pyre. A temple will come up at the funeral site. Perhaps some wonder what happens to such large funds raised and the simple answer is a trust fund is setup and all donated funds are used for charitable purposes.
