Veerayatan Palitana 

Sadhvis in Palitana who, whilst praising Pujya Acharya Shriji Chandanaji Maharaj’s vision of educating thousands of children and adults, also added, 'What about us? Why have you never thought of helping the Sadhvi Sangh who face such everyday barriers?’ Acharya Shriji, with a heavy heart, is feeling the pain that nothing has been done for these Sadhvis for their betterment in the field of education. As a result she has resolved that alongside an already planned school for the disadvantaged children of Palitana, Veerayatan will also construct and run an educational training centre for the Sadhvis in Palitana where Sadhvis will be taught Prakrit, Sanskrit, Gujarati and English as well as learning scriptures, comparative studies of religion etc.
