Obituary for Shri Jairam Jaisinghani

Date : 11 Jul 2020

Shraddhanjali :

Shri Jairam Jaisinghani, an ardent devotee, attained the holy feet of Pujya Gurudev on July 9, 2020. A keen disciple of Gurudev’s teachings, he would accompany his father to the jnana yajnas since the early sixties. It was Gurudev who arranged his match with his late wife Pushpa, who started the two Chinmaya Nursery schools in Mumbai.
After a short stint as a medical representative, Shri Jaisinghani joined Sandeepany Sadhanalaya as a full-time manager in 1980. A strict disciplinarian and a tireless worker, the ashram saw much growth and improvement under his tenure. He became the CEO and later a trustee of Tara Cultural Trust in 2005. Gurudev used to refer to ‘Jairam’ as his Hanumanji.
In 2006, Jairamji suffered a stroke and retired to his home. He was lovingly cared for by his son Jagdeesh, daughter Harsha and their families.
An online Shraddhanjali via Zoom was held on July 11, 2020. After kirtan, tributes were paid by Pujya Guruji and Swami Swatmananda followed by the marka ceremony, where rich tributes were again paid by family and friends from around the world.
The entire Chinmaya Family wishes the departed soul sadgati and offers its condolences and prayers to the family.
