PM Modi Unveils Commemorative Coins and a Stamp to celebrate the 150th birth anniversary of Jain spiritualist Shrimad Rajchandra.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited his home state after the four-day US and Netherlands tour and one of his core agenda during this travel to Ahmedabad was to attend the centennial anniversary of Sabarmati Ashram coinciding with the 150th birth anniversary of Jain spiritualist Shrimad Rajchandraji. Modi inaugurated a stamp of Rs.5 and coins of Rs.10 and Rs. 150 dedicated to Rajchandraji and marked the occasion by calling his life as a worth doctoral research and him as an extraordinary person with simple living. The event was attended by various spiritual leaders, including the followers of Shrimad Rajchandra Mission, a spiritual organisation working on the principles of Rajchandraji, which has now over 102 ashrams across the globe.

Jain spiritualist & thinker Rajchandraji met Mahatma Gandhi in Mumbai in 1891 and became a beacon for Bapu in England, who guided him to stay connected to his religious roots during his spiritual crisis times. The primary pillars of the Gandhian philosophy including Satya (Truth), Ahimsa (Non-Violence) and Dharma (Law) were invoked in the letter conversations between Bapu and Rajchandraji. At the event, Modi addressed the crowd by calling Gandhian philosophy a tool that would guide humans throughout the hazards of living.
