24-Year-Old Accountant Gives Up Over 100 Crore Business To Become A Monk
A 24-year-old chartered accountant belonging to an affluent Jain family has embraced monkhood today. In the process, he has given up on his career and a family business worth over Rs. 100 crores.
Mokshesh Sheth managed his family business for two years after becoming a chartered accountant (CA). In a ceremony held in Gandhinagar today, he gave it all up and became a Jain monk. Life after accepting monkhood for Mokshesh Sheth would mean that he would be unable to enjoy luxury of a householder and has to be detached emotionally from other people, places or things.
From today onwards, the eldest son of Mumbai-based businessman Sandip Sheth, will be known as ‘Karunapremvijay Jee’, said his uncle Girish Sheth.
Yesterday, 12-year-old Bhavya Shah from Surat, son of a millionaire diamond merchant also embraced monkhood. “I am happy to take the path of truth shown by God,” Bhavya Shah said.
