Businessman Bhavesh Bhai Bhandari had companies in Sabarkantha and Ahmedabad and was a well-known name in the construction industry. Earlier in February 2024, Bhandari and his spouse made the decision to lead a life of spirituality. During their Diksha ceremony, the couple gave away everything they owned including gold, household appliances, and even cell phones.

Thirty-five other people followed the Bhandari couple when they embarked on a 4-kilometer-long march in which they gave away all they owned. Following the donation ceremony, the pair will formally become monks on April 22, 2024. The pair will have to give up most material benefits and abandon all familial ties after April 22. They’ll have to give up all material possessions, go barefoot, and live off alms.

According to media reports, the couple is following in their children’s footsteps and became monks. In 2022, their 16-year-old son and 19-year-old daughter started living monastic life. The couple’s children motivated them to leave material possessions and adopt an austere lifestyle.

The only possessions granted to monks are two pairs of white clothes, a bowl for collecting alms, and a white broom which is known as a “rajoharan.” They use this broom to clear the area before lying down or sitting.

The broom aids monks in upholding the vow of “non-violence” by softly sweeping the insects away rather than hurting them. For the same reason, most Jain monks go bald to avoid lice. Nevertheless, monks pluck each person’s hair individually rather than shaving it.

There are other wealthy Jain families besides the Bhandari family who have given up their fortune to follow the spiritual path. In a big Diksha ceremony held in Ahmedabad back in 2015, multimillionaire businessman Bhawarlal Doshi also referred to as the “plastic king of India” has adopted monastic life.
