Dear Sadharmik Brothers and Sisters,
Jain Center of America would like to congratulation Nishaben, daughter of Manojbhai and Manjariben Kapashi, who was born in the USA and raised in Mumbai will be taking Diksha on Jan. 18, 2015 at Sammetshikharji. Manojbhai and Manjariben are the members of JCA, Ithaca, N.Y. Sangh.
At the age of 20 she left Mumbai to study fashion merchandising at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York. She studied for 1 year in Florence, Italy and for 3 years in New York. She then went on to work as a fashion merchandiser for J. Crew. However her excitement for the fashion world was soon replaced by a longing for something more meaningful.
She quit her job and travelled to India to where she met Acharyadev Shrimad Vilay Kirtiyashsurishvarji Maharaj Saheb and Sadhviji Shri Prashamitashriji Maharaj Saheb. Under their enlightened guidance she began to explore, understand and experience Jain religion. And this has ultimately resulted in her firm resolve to take Diksha. Her family has extended their heartfelt invitation to one and all to join them in this celebration.
It is a great honor to all of us at JCA , specially American born Jain, daughter of JCA member, is taking Diksha. All members of Jain Center of America, NY, Ithaca Street Temple, are very fortunate to have such an opportunity to do Bahuman for our Nishaben, prior to her Diksha ceremony in India at Jain Tirth Sammetshikharji. Such celebrations and occasions are very special and happen rarely. This is once in a life time opportunity for all of us living outside India.
JCA Board of Trustees and Executive committee requests all members to participate in this celebration and grace the occasion on Sunday Oct.26, 2014 at 10.00 AM and take Labh. All of us will have memorable experience of this event.
On behalf of Board of Trustees and Executive Committee.
Jawahar A. Shetti
Chairman, Jain Center of America – New York
