Aaryabhivinaya By Swami Dayanand Saraswati


Dayanand Saraswati About this soundpronunciation  (12 February 1824 – 30 October 1883) was an Indian social leader and founder of the Arya Samaj, a reform movement of the Vedic dharma. He was the first to give the call for Swaraj as “India for Indians” in 1876, a call later taken up by Lokmanya Tilak.[2][3] Denouncing the idolatry and ritualistic worship prevalent in India at the time, he worked towards reviving Vedic ideologies. Subsequently, the philosopher and President of IndiaS. Radhakrishnan called him one of the “makers of Modern India”, as did Sri Aurobindo.[4][5][6]

Those who were influenced by and followed Dayananda included Madam CamaPandit Lekh RamSwami Shraddhanand, Pandit Guru Dutt Vidyarthi,[7] Shyamji Krishna Varma (who established India House in England for Freedom fighters,) Vinayak Damodar SavarkarLala HardayalMadan Lal DhingraRam Prasad BismilMahadev Govind RanadeAshfaq Ullah Khan,[8] Mahatma HansrajLala Lajpat Rai,[9][10] and others. One of his most influential works is the book Satyarth Prakash, which contributed to the Indian independence movement.

He was a sanyasi (ascetic) from boyhood, and a scholar. He believed in the infallible authority of the Vedas. Maharshi Dayananda advocated the doctrine of Karma and Reincarnation. He emphasized the Vedic ideals of brahmacharya, including celibacy and devotion to God.
