Dr.Prakashwati Sharma, patron Chinmaya Mission Jaipur, breathed her last on 12th October 2018. A retired professor of philosophy got inspired by Pujya Gurudev’s teachings and Mission activities in 2009-10 while on a visit to the USA to her son. On returning to India she joined Chinmaya Mission with a missionary zeal. Despite her advancing age and health problems she joined 2 years residential Vedanta Course at Sandeepany Sadhanalaya, Mumbai in 2011 under the guidance of Pujya Swami Advayananda Ji. She conducted regular classes on different scriptures after completing her course in the year 2103 along with serving almost all Mission activities as Vice President and later as Patron. She regularly visited Sandeepany to attend different sessions of ongoing Vedanta Courses whenever she could spare time.
Dr.Prakashwati Sharma Amma was a loving mentor and precious guide for Chinmaya Family Jaipur. Her ardent devotion for Advait Philosophy was a source of inspiration for all the devotees at Jaipur. Her demise is a great irreparable loss to us.
Chinmaya Family offers its condolences to the family.
