Jain muni Jambu Vijayji Maharaj, 87, and his disciple Jain muni Shri Namaskar Vijayji Maharaj died in road accident on Thursday near Nakoda in Rajasthan while walking barefoot towards Jaisalmer.

The Jain Muni’s bodies were kept for darshan at Aagam Mandir in Shankheshwar. His cremation took place at 3.00 pm on Sami road, 2 miles from Shankheshwar.

An anonymous donor offered Rs 1.11 crore for construction of a Jain Mandir in the memory of the two monks. Raju Vrujlal Shah from Surat, who originally belongs to Adariyana village in Surendranagar district lit the funeral pyre of the monk after becoming the highest chadhawa taker (bidder) for Rs 87,87,787 lakh during the last darshan ritual.

Meanwhile a group of Jain monks blamed Rajasthan based Anup Mandal for series of incidents in which Jain monks were hit by heavy vehicles on road. In last one week, six Jain monks were killed in road accidents in two different incidents.
