Acharya Shri Chandanaji

Sadhvi Shri Sanghmitraji

About Sadhvi Shri Sanghmitraji and her Diksha:

Sadhvi Sanghamitraji, prior known as Mangalam, is associated with Veerayatan Jain Temple, Bihar, India, since her childhood. At the young age of 6 years, she memorized Bhaktamar, Kalyan Mandir and Tatwartha Sutra and other Jain Stotras. She has learnt Sanskrit and Prakrit along with other Jain scriptures. She is blessed with an enchanting melodious voice which has mesmerized and touched the hearts of thousands of people around the world.


She lived in the US for many years before she took diksha. She has translated the spiritual and social welfare messages of Acharya Shriji into melodious songs, and conveyed them to people around the world. She is now efficiently handling Veerayatan Global.


Jain Diksha (initiation or ordination of Monkhood) occurs in two steps. The initial Diksha, and within 6 months, the final (Badi) Diksha. Mangalam Ji's initial Diksha took place under Acharya Shri Chandanaji at Veerayatan, Rajgir, Bihar, India on December 20th, 2011. During the initiation process, she was given a new name Sadhvi Sanghamitra. The Badi Diksha took place at the Jain Center of Northern California, Milpitas, California on April 8, 2012.


About Acharya Shri Chandanaji and Veerayatan:

Acharya Shri Chandanaji possesses the rare combination of patience found in decades of contemplation, and a vision for the greater good. She chose the path of Mahavir and took diksha to diligently accomplish far more than a religious mandate. She has empowered and touched the lives of countless needy people through education, health, and justice with complete loyalty and dedication. But this task would not have been possible without the unyielding support of a team of Sadhvis, who are self-realized, positive, and empathetic towards making a difference to mankind.


The Veerayatan principle mission of Seva (help other human beings and animals), Siksha (Educate other human beings), and Sadhana (along with Seva, and Siksha continue your spiritual progress) is very conducive to uplift the morality and spirituality of our children born and raised in North America.
