Yugpursh Mahatma Ke Mahatma to be staged in Patna on May 23

Patna: Jain Sangh will organise a play Yugpursh Mahatma Ke Mahatma at Rabindra Bhavan here on May 23.

The play which is an untold story in Indian history will begin at 7: 30 pm.

The play which is originally in Guajrati will be staged here in Hindi version.

Commemorating the glorious occasion of Shrimad Rajchandraji’s 150th birth anniversary year, under the able guidance of Pujya Gurudevshri Rakeshbhai, Shrimad Rajchandra Mission Dharampur presents the theater production, Yugpurush – Mahatma Ke Mahatma.

Yugpurush is a heart-touching and riveting portrayal of the profound relationship between Shrimadji and Gandhiji, depicting the transformation of Mohandas to the Mahatma. What began as an honest friendship, progressed to Gandhiji proclaiming Shrimadji as his spiritual mentor. Celebrated as the global messenger of nonviolence, Gandhiji remained indebted to the teachings of Shrimadji. Their bond initiated a brilliant new chapter in the cultural, political, and spiritual history of India, and of the world.

Yugpurush highlights the values of expanding one’s capacity to love and give selflessly, respecting diversity, supporting truth, fostering trust, and building lasting communities. It brings to the forefront a powerful experience of looking within, upholding truth and fearlessness, and transforming character and consciousness. It revives a stirring spiritual legacy and the cultural philosophy of our nation. The legacies of Shrimadji and Gandhiji continue to offer new paradigms to global peace and human progress.

The play is directed by acclaimed director Rajesh Joshi and scripted by Uttam Gada. The music direction is by well-known composer duo Sachin–Jigar.
