It is with the Grace of Pujya Shree Jalaram Bapa that I have had the privilege of doing daily Seva in the mandir since 18 July 1990.
Since my arrival I have witnessed continued growth in the activities of the temple and its congregation.
Since a very young age I have felt the call to serve God and
to lead a life of contentment. The Trustees of the Jalaram
Charitable Trust opened up a new world for me when they gave me the opportunity to do Bapa’s work under the guidance of my elderbrother Mahendrabhai.
My responsibilities in the day today running of the temple have rewarded me abundantly as I have had blessings of many Sants and Sadhus who have visited the temple over the years.
