She also launched three books written by gani rajender vijay named: a home in harmony, yog ke vyavaharic safal pryog and varsitap and tapasvi samrat. In this function Amitrai Jain India President(Youth) of World Religion Parliament, Manish Jain President Sukhi Parivar Foundation, Lalit Garg Editor in Chief Shri Vijay Inder Times, Gyan Chand Jain - Delhi Head of Rajasthan Patrika, Swati Jain and Astha Jain the disciples of Gyanmati Mataji, Prakash Jain, Vishal Jain-Meerut and others were introduced and highlighted the principle of Mahavir.
