Lectures by Gurudevshri Rakesh Bhai Jhaveri at the JSH!


The One whose actions elevate and emancipate those miserably entangled in the cycles of life and death… 

The One whose mere glance radiates compassion, offering immense relief from worldly miseries… 
The One whose simple words shatter the shackles of the karmas that bind us… 
The One whose very existence is a blessing; every step, a dharmayatra; every breath, a promise of Grace… 
The One who is an embodiment of love, 
He is… Pujya Gurudevshri.
