Founder of Sansthan and inspirator of Jambudweep Structure

Pujya Ganini Pramukh Shri Gyanmati Mataji

  Brief Introduction  

     Daughter `Maina' was born to Smt. Mohini Devi, the wife of Shri  Chhote Lal Jain of Tikaitnagar at Barabanki district of U.P. as the first  issue at 9.15 P.M. of Ashwin Shukla Poornima (Sharad Poornima)  i.e. 22nd October of the year 1934. On account of the spirits of  previous birth and the hard struggle of the present, Maina left home in  1952 and in the year 1953, she took Kshullika Deeksha from  Acharya Shri Deshbhushan Ji Maharaj. In the year 1956, she  became `Gyanmati Mataji' by taking Aryika Deeksha from Acharya  Shri Veersagar Ji Maharaj, the first disciple (Pattadhish Acharya) of  Charitra Chakravarti Shri Shantisagar Ji Maharaj, the first Acharya of  the 20th century.

    Realizing the importance of her great worldwide activities, vast  literary writing, socially- beneficial inspirations etc. Jain Samaj and  various Acharyas have honoured her by conferring various titles such  as Ganini Pramukh, Charitra Chandrika, Yug Pravartika,  Vatsalyamoorti, Vagdevi, Rashtra Gaurav etc. Besides these, Dr.  Ram Manohar Lohia Avadh University-Faizabad (U.P.) has dignified itself by presenting the honorary degree of D.Litt. to her in the year 1995.

     Pujya Mataji has completed the Sanskrit Teeka (explanatory note) of the Sutras of the sixteen books of Shatkhandagam Grantha, the 2000 years ancient Jain Scripture.

        She herself used to say that I have crowned my spiritual life by doing the Sanskrit Teeka of the sixteen books of Shatkhandagam. Along with it, Pujya Mataji is always having the determination for the renovation and development of the forgotten birthplaces of Tirthankar Bhagwants. Her tireless efforts for establishing the ancientness of Jain Religion, worldwide publicity of Bhagwan Rishabhdev, eradication of the misconceptions about Jainism in the school text-books etc. are well introductory about her specific intellect.

        Such a miraculous personality, the guardian of ancient Aarshmarg and depicting the flawless tradition of the first Digambar Jainacharya of the 20th century Charitra Chakravarti Shri Shantisagar Ji Maharaj (South), the Supreme Sadhvi of Jain Samaj, Pujya Ganini Pramukh Aryika Shiromani Shri Gyanmati Mataji may provide her patronage and shelter to all of us for the ages to come, is the only sincere wish.
