Intelligence chooses intelligence. Worthy souls choose a worthy life. A student who secured 99.51 percentile in her Grade 10, who dreamed of becoming a successful engineer and whose singular wish was to see her parents happy and satisfied. This is the story of a brilliant student – Mumukshu Shri Diyaben Kamdar, a 17-year-old youngster who has decided to renounce the whole world and take up the courageous path of Prabhu Mahavir. She is the elder daughter of Shri Jignaben Kalpeshbhai Kamdar, Rajkot.
In Prabhu’s era, we have seen countless examples of how one soul’s saiyam bhaav invokes saiyam in another soul. But we are blessed to witness such a glorious moment in this era too. The diksha of 2 mumukshus in 2018 gave birth to this Mumukshu. The courage, valour and fearlessness of one mumukshu opened the doors of abhaydaan in the heart of Mumukshu Shri Diyaben Kamdar. And after realizing the reality, understanding the truth and evaluating the end value of her own ambitions, she decided to adopt the saiyam lifestyle.
Mumukshu Shri Diyaben Kamdar has been a student of Look N Learn Jain Gyan Dham in Rajkot and her parents have played a very crucial role in nurturing aatmik values in her life. She says that her mother never saw her as ‘Diya’, she always saw her as a ‘soul’ and constantly reminded her that this is your true identity. And so, Mumukshu Shri Diyaben Kamdar feels extremely blessed to have a family that never let her fall in the myth of sansar, but always encouraged her to advance on the path of aatma kalyan.
Mumukshu Shri Diyaben has not just been an academically brilliant student in sansar, she is equally brilliant in the spiritual sphere too. In the past 2 years of her sadhak life, she has learnt Shree Dashvaikalik Sutra, Shree Sukhvipak Sutra, Shree Acharang Sutra and she is currently learning Shree Uttaradhyayan Sutra. She has learnt more than 60 Jain Shaastra Thokdas.
