Surekhaben was an amazing lady with a warm, calm and loving personality. She was full of love and kindness and was always very helpful, strong, sensible, practical and resilient and was a rock for our family. She took a lot of care of everyone and it was a privilege to know her. She was very spiritual and that gave her a lot of strength and comfort. We pray that she finds eternal happiness and peace.


We will all miss you and your love and will remember you in our hearts forever.


In these challenging times, we regret there cannot be a saadri but we will be hosting Zoom prayer meetings and will circulate the details in due course. We humbly request that you please recite three Navkar Mantras for her and remember her in your prayers for her soul to rest in peace and progress towards moksh.


Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti
