In Burhanpur there is a thousand-page handwritten Shrimad Bhagwat written on paper from Morpunkh.
Bhagwat Bhushan Pt. Harikrishna Mukhiyaji, who has done about 280 Shrimad Bhagwat stories across the country, has saved the manuscript of the 200-year-old book.
This was possible due to the tradition that started in this city years ago. Here 65 people have kept these texts of Srimad Bhagwat very well. These include a thousand-page handwritten Shrimad Bhagwat written on paper from Morpunkh.
The tradition of Burhanpur is to save rare texts
All future generations also take special care of saving these texts in the same way. The bullion traders have been working for 150 years to encourage the enthusiasm of those who hold the holy book. He did not let this tradition break even during the Corona transition.
Pt. Prashant Joshi of Jainabad village, who is saving texts in the seventh generation, are also included. He has a manuscript written on paper from Morpunkh. Pandit Joshi says, about 150 years ago, his ancestor Sandhuveen Bapu Joshi wrote this book on paper from Morpankh. The indelible ink of that time has been used in writing. The pages of this thousand-page book are now shabby, but are safe. Bhagwat Bhushan Pt. Harikrishna Mukhiyaji, who has done about 280 Shrimad Bhagwat stories across the country, has saved the manuscript of the 200-year-old book. The chief says that his future generations will also save it with full devotion.
Special respect to those who handle years old manuscripts and texts
The tradition played like this reached the house of 200 members of Sarafa Bhagwat Committee on Purnima on Wednesday and worshiped Shrimad Bhagwat like every year. All were presented with Samman Nidhi, silver coin, paan, betel nut and sweets as well as Uparna (dupatta).
Committee President Chandu Bhai Patel said that due to the Korana transition, the committee members arrived in groups of five, not as a rally for the worship of texts. Santosh Shroff, former president of the Sarafa Association, says that the collectors respect and give them presents so that they do not sell these texts or flow into the river and future generations can also know about them.
