Hindustan Surkhiyan Desk: Jain Monk Tarun Sagar breathed his last on Saturday morning after suffering through prolonged illness. He passed away at Radhapuri temple situated in Krishna Nagar area of East Delhi.

The 51-year-old Muni Tarun Sagar’s last rites would be held at Tarunsagaram, located in Uttar Pradesh’s  Moradnagar on Saturday afternoon.

He lost his life after his jaundice got worsened as he had stopped taking medicines after coming from hospital and rather opted for Santhara (the Jain ritual of fast unto death).

He was known for his lectures, which were termed as Kadve Pravachan (bitter discourses) because they were candidly critical of common practices.

Muni Tarun Sagar was born as Pawan Kumar Jain on 26 June 1967 in Madhya Pradesh.

He was initiated as Kshullak at the age of 13 and as a Digambara monk by Acharya Pushpdant Sagar on 20 July 1988 in Bagidora.
