Braille transcription of Jain Sadhvi duo Nidhi-Kripa Shri’s books — Jeena Aaye to Zindagi and Karm Jigyasa — was unveiled at Parliament’s Balayagi Auditorium on November 9, 2014. The aim of this Braille transcription is to make it possible for the visually-impaired to own these books and enrich their lives as per the guidance of Bhagwan Mahavir.
Along with the unveiling of Braille transcription of duo’s book, Nandita Jain and Mridu Jain also unveiled a book ‘Jiyo Barass Likho Baras’ — a biography of the duo — on the same day, which also marks the 50th birth anniversary of the two Sadhvis.
Duo’s books propagate the teachings such as non-violence and guide people to lead a content life in the light of Bhagwan Mahavir’s teachings. ‘Jeena Aaye to Zindagi’ helps the reader to enrich life by multiplying good qualities and defeating grey shades, on the other hand ‘Karm Jigyasa’ is Bhagwan Mahavir’s tool to open the doors to understanding and tolerance.
The two Sadhvi’s mission is ‘knowledge for all’ and believe that even in the materialistic world people can be enlightened. In line with this mission, the books of two Sadhvi’s are available in audio format through Daisy format (digital talking book) for the visually-impaired.
Sadhvis Nidhi Shri was born in Mumbai and Sadhvi Kripa Shri was born in Jalna, Maharashtra, and together got Jain consecration around 32 years ago. The two started giving discourses after the consecration and started writing books from 1997 onwards.
