The nine-year-old daughter of a successful Gujarati diamond merchant has chosen to become a monk rather than pursue financial luxuries.
Devanshi Sanghvi received her “Diksha” in Surat to signify her entry into the life of an ascetic. According to the Times of India, Dhanesh Sanghvi and his wife Ami have two kids, with Devanshi being the older. One of the oldest diamond businesses in the world, Sanghvi and Sons, is run by her family.
Devanshi would have inherited a multi-crore diamond business when he was an adult. On Wednesday in Surat, the nine-year-old gave up luxury and decided to become a monk.
Devanshi Sanghvi Diksha
A large parade with camels, elephants, horses, and much fanfare was organised in the city the day before she took diksha, according to TOI. Her family had previously planned a comparable march in Belgium, which is home to several Jain diamond traders.
Devanshi travelled more than 600 kilometres with monks and gained experience leading a tough ascetic life before being selected for the “diksha,” or vow of renunciation.
Devanshi Sanghvi’s Father’s Name
According to the Times of India, Dhanesh Sanghvi and his wife Ami have an older daughter named Devanshi. One of the oldest diamond businesses in the world, Sanghvi and Sons, is run by her family.
Lived simple life since childhood
Devanshi had always led a straightforward life, praying three times daily along with the rest of the family.
“Devanshi never watched television or went to the movies, and he also avoided eating out and attending weddings. She has thus far taken part in 367 diksha events “said a friend of the Sanghvis family. Another source connected to the occasion affirmed that “the family lives a humble life while being proprietors of a massive business setup.”
