Sewa Sahitya
Shriji has come to our homes in search of true & unselfish love, worldly things like wealth have no importance for him.

You must always try to see that you take prabhu along with you wherever you go. Whenever we have to carry prabhu from one place to another (when we go out or some other vaishnav takes prabhu to his/her house to do sewa) always do it in a jhapiji.
Shape of Jhapiji
There is a given shape of jhapiji, it cannot be altered. Generally the jhapiji is rectangular in shape. It has a lace or latch on it so that it does not open while in travel. Moreover, the material with which the jhapiji is constructed is also clearly mentioned. It must be made of wood or cane. The use of materials like plastic or steel or iron is not permitted.
