Mumbai, Nov 22: Hemalata Jain, daughter of the late Srinivas Jain and Shakuntala, a resident of Borivli (west) in the metro, who had an aversion towards wordly desires and things since her childhood, was initiated as Aryika (Jain nun) by Munishree 108 Punyasagara Maharaj on Sunday November 13.  Incidentally, Hemalata’s parents hail from Karkala in Udupi district.

Hemalata, born on November 4, 1958 in Mumbai and who holds M A degree and deploma in PM and IR, served Union Bank of India for about 28 years.  Material things never attracted her, and her interests have always been religious services, attending religious discourses, serving the sages,and doling out what she has to the needy.  She observed celibacy all through her life. In continuance of her interests in religion, she approached Munishree 108 Punyasagara Maharaj who was observing Chaturmasa at Airoli, and extracted his assurance of introducing her into religious services.

She was initiated as an Aryika, and renamed ‘Aryika 105 Pramodamati Mataji’ after observation of detailed rituals connected thereof spread over several days from November 4 to 13.
