Taranga Tirth Bhojanshala has been providing religious (Sadharmik Bhakti) to Jains, Non-Jains, Sadhu Sadhvi, Yatris and Tourists.
We also provide Bhati (Laddu/Bundi and Sev) and other items which is free and not charged. Though people still donate if they wish to do so, and people have done it generously in the past. The interest money which we receive is used for running the Bhata-Khatu.
Just for the statistics, In the year 2018-19, the total amount of people got benefitted from the Bhata-Khatu has touched the mark of 40,000 to 45,000 in just 1 year only.
Under sadharmik bhati service, for the meals 1.25 lacs people have got benefitted, that too in such remote areas where nothing is available in this hilly region, the bhojanshala has been running successfully since last 83 years.
But, this was all possible because of the generous donors like Bhamasha and Jagdusha and donors like you. They donated Tithi, Sadharmik Bhakti, Money and whatever they could donate. And that is the reason we were able to run this Bhojanshala not only for the Jains but Non-Jains also.
With inter religion marriages and we are loosing our Jain population. The technology has also taken its toll, wherein the youth is becoming lazier to visit the derasar even in the vicinity. Food is something which gives a satisfaction and attracts even the youth to take out their time and travel to perform the Jain Yatra by visiting Jain tirths like Taranga.
It is not far that we would be forced to increase the no. of items served in the meals (Naukarsi, afternoon meal and choviyaar).
With growing prosperity, people want more options not only in Pooja Clothes but also when they are having their meals.
The cost is going to increase and will keep on increasing.
So we appeal to you to please donate in whatever you want and in whatever way you can, so that we can run the bhojanshala for next 100 years also, and we can provide far better services to the Jain Followers.
