Addressing the professionals and huge gathering of lay followers, Sadhvi Shri Nirvanshri ji said –“Terapanth Dharam Sangha is a diversified Sangha. It is a unique sangh. Our spiritual head have identified the palpation of time and acted with farsightedness. Our society’s beginning towards higher education in the outcome of their preaching and encouragement. The atmosphere of higher education in women of our society is the result of their preaching. Our earlier ten Acharya were so farsighted that they used to work keeping in mind the pace of time. The present Acharya - Acharya shri Mahashraman ji is working with the power inherited from the earlier 10 Acharyas  to guide each and every section of the society. Today the GUWAHATI branch of TPF has been installed.  The inauguration of TPF Guwahati Branch will surely be beneficial for the Whole Terapanthi Samaj not only in Assam but North East of India as well. This branch will play an active role in spiritual development of the members apart from their professional and economical development. This way society will also get benefited from TPF’s active participation. The Terapanthi Professionals along with their professional work will also develop a spiritual habit amongst themselves.”  She thrust upon professionals to develop skills to become International level speakers on Jainism, Terapanth, Anuvrat, Preksha Dhyan and Jeevan Vigyan. She also advised participants to practice Moral values in their professional life.

The chief speaker Dr. Sadhvi Yogkshamprabha speaking on the subject “ Difficult is to know oneself “ said - Todays people, though have willingness to know the world, yet he never knows himself. The true meaning of curiosity is to move in the direction of knowing one self. For this journey it is essential to have emotional balance apart from the high intellectual development. All arts learnt by a person are useless unless he learn the art of controlling emotions and keeping balance in adverse circumstances. This is possible only if one goes for seeing one self, and that can happen through practise of Preksha Meditation, diving life with high moral values and developing the consciousness of Anukampa (of not doing harm to any creature)

Fellow Sadhvis - Sadhvi Kundan Yasha ji, Sadhvi Lavinya Prabha ji and Sadhvi Mudit Prabha ji also blessed the occasion by their gracious presence.
