Arya Samaj

Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati Ji was born on February 12, 1824 in Tankara, Gujarat. He left home at the age of 19 to search for true knowledge. He received education from Guru Virjanand Dandi Ji at Mathura. After deeply understanding the contemporary problems of the country he started putting his fearless words on all of them. As a result, a change started coming. Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati Ji understood the root cause of contemporary problems of India was prevalence of superstition, social evils, illiteracy, untouchability, castism by birth and gender discrimination and he started working upon it one by one. As Swami Ji had understood that being a human being his life also could not last forever, so he founded Arya Samaj Organization in 1875 in Bombay for continuous expansion of his work. Soon Arya Samaj began to be establishing in different cities across the country. He made rules and regulations for this. He created a democratic structure amazingly.

Principles of Arya Samaj

  • God is the efficient cause of all true knowledge and all that is known through knowledge.
  • God is existent, intelligent and blissful. He is formless, omniscient, just, merciful, unborn, endless, unchangeable, beginning-less, unequalled, the support of all, the master of all, omnipresent, immanent, un-aging, immortal, fearless, eternal and holy, and the maker of all. He alone is worthy of being worshiped.
  • The Vedas are the scriptures of all true knowledge. It is the paramount duty of all Aryas to read them, teach them, recite them and to hear them being read.
  • One should always be ready to accept truth and to renounce untruth.
  • All acts should be performed in accordance with Dharma that is, after deliberating what is right and wrong.
  • The prime object of the Arya Samaj is to do good to the world, that is, to promote physical, spiritual and social good of everyone.
  • Our conduct towards all should be guided by love, righteousness and justice.
  • We should dispel Avidya (ignorance) and promote Vidya (knowledge).
  • No one should be content with promoting his/her good only; on the contrary, one should look for his/her good in promoting the good of all.
  • One should regard oneself under restriction to follow the rules of society calculated to promote the well being of all, while in following the rules of individual welfare all should be free.
