Acharya Tulsi Smarak
Acharyasri Tulsi is responsible to have awakened the light of self-realization among women of Terapanth and opened the doors of their development, even though he had to face many difficulties and rebellion. This is the reason why the women of Terapanth are now able to define their existence and mark their milestones Enroute their journey of success.
On the 23 rd day of June 1996, this light of enlightenment bid good-bye to us mortals for a destination beyond the material. Acharya Mahapragya indicated that a memorial be made to commemorate the contributions of Ganadhipati Gurudev Sri Tulsi to the mankind. The materialization of this memorial was taken up by the terapanthi women population, making it the best option to honour the great personality who gave them all they have today - freedom, self - confidence and light of knowledge.
Smt. Tara Surana and Smt. Kanta Bafna, the then president and secretary respectively laid the foundation of this memorial in June 1998 in the benign presence of Acharya Mahapragya at Jain Vishwa Bharti, Ladnun. Sri Hansrajji Baid supervised the construction process, while the 380 branches of ABTMM collectively contributed for the financial requisites of the project. 16 th December 2000 witnessed the celebration of Silver Jubilee of ABTMM along with the inauguration of the Tulsi Smarak by Smt. Tara Surana and Smt. Kanta Bafna, the then president and secretary respectively.
It was observed that to conserve the memorial a dome was mandatory covering the smarak from the after effects of weather. Hence Smt. Sayar Bengani and Smt. Sarla Bothra, the then president and secretary of ABTMM, took up the responsibility of building the dome in the year 2005-07.
The construction of dome over the memorial was completed in the year 2007-09 and was inaugurated on the 6 th of October 2009 during the 34 th AGM of ABTMM by Smt. Sobhag Baid and Smt. Veena Baid, the then president and secretary respectively. Acharya Mahapragya considers this memorial as the source of energy that drives the whole of Jain Vishva Bharti Campus on the path of eternal glory.
