On 20th April 2007, Akshay Tritiya 2007 in Kolkata was celebrated in the auspicious presence of Sadhvishree Nirvanshree, Sadhvishree Dr. Yogkshem Prabhaji, and Samani Dr. Chaitanya Pragyaji in Satyam Towers. Terapanth dignitaries and a huge gathering followed the drama performance on the life of Lord Rishabha, the first Tirthankara, by Gyanshala students.

Sadhvishree Nirvanshreeji addressed the audience by accentuating that Lord Rishabha was a glorious person of pre-historical days, being accepted as first person of civilisation. He has practised Sadhana in the way of Japa, Tapas, and Swadhaya.

According to Samani Dr. Chaitanya Pragyaji Lord Rishabha was the originator of social order and laid down many rules for healthy society.

Sadhvi Dr. Yogkshem Prabhaji mentioned that Lord Rishabha first did not have the intention to practise Tapas. People at that time were not aware how to properly give alms to a monk, and therefore Lord Rishabha could not accept the food offered to him. In this period, he experienced the process of purification initiated by observing fast. Sadhvi Dr. Yogkshem Prabhaji expressed her thanks towards all those engaged in Tapas to pay tribute to Lord Rishabha.

Shri Ranjeet Kothari, Shri Surendra Dugar, Shri Narendra Munot, Shri Mahavir Dugar, and Shri Prakash Dugar had taken the responsibility to make function a success.
