We are grateful to have Tulsi join us with her broad range of real-world experience, a storehouse of personal strength, and tested leadership serving in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Tulsi’s impressive resume includes serving on two tours of duty in the Middle East, breaking barriers by becoming the first Hindu member and one of the first two female combat veterans to ever serve in the U.S. Congress.

6. GIRNAR STORY

Story #12: Pethshah Mantri

Many saints, leaders of pilgrim groups and noble men from faraway lands used to visit the beautiful soil of Sorath in order to pay their obeisance to this land, made supremely pious due to the renunciation, enlightenment and/or salvation of infinite Tirthankar lords. Being here afforded them the luxury of experiencing bliss and peace like never before. Learned men of the past have said that a pilgrimage is instrumental in destruction of all karmas, it effectuates the pilgrim’s birth and enables the achievement of Tirthankar naam karma.

Thus understanding such remarkable and astounding result of pilgrimage, minister Pethad who was a great philanthropist, a renowned beneficiary of the ability to convert matter to gold (suvarna siddhi), was a beloved of his teachers and a stalwart of the earth, along with many members of the Jain community embarked on a pilgrimage to the pious shrines of Siddhachal and Raivatachal, the two jewels of Sorath. With great enthusiasm he admired the mountain shrine where innumerable Jain monks attained salvation. He worshipped Lord Adinath perched above the Siddhachal peak. He carried out other rituals with reverent devotion and embellished the temple of the first Lord of this era, Lord Adinath with 25 ghadis^2 of gold.
