Profile Of Muni shri Mangilalji ‘Madhukarji’ from Gangasahar
Terapanth Saint Serial No. 586


Muni Madhukar ji was born on Tuesday, 6th February 1932 (i.e vikram samvat 1988, magh shukla 3 according to hindi calendar) in   Lodha (Oswald) family residing in Gangashahar in Bikaner district of Rajasthan.

Detachment from worldly life

He got sick and almost came out of death’s jaws. He got the opportunity of Darshan of Acharya Sri Tulsi. Acharya Shree Tulsi’s dazzling personality left a deep impact on Mangilal‘s  mind. Young Munis gave teachings to him for leaving worldly life and accepting Sanyas. Within a span of 2 months he saw in his family the death of his maternal grandmother, his sister in law and his elder sister.  Watching death so closely he became more and more detached to the world where there is no fear of death even.


After that  he  left the narrow path of ignorance and joined the highway towards nirvana. His chosen path reaches out to every door, varying from end to infinity, from immortality to eternity and from spirituality to nirvana.
