COME! LET US GET
INTRODUCED TO YUGA RISHI SHRIRAM SHARMA ACHARYA AND HIS HOLY CONSORT MATA
In the district
of Agra (UP-INDIA) is a village called Anwalkheda. In this village called
Anwalkheda a big Gayatri Shaktipitha has been established and so many visitors
arrive here daily even from very far off regions. At the commencement of this 21st
century this called Anwalkheda was an ordinary one yet since the past few years
this spot being the birth place of a great renowned saint has become a hallowed
pilgrim spot. Every day many pilgrims arrive here to visualize this sacred birth
place of a great renowned saint. In this village was born a child later named
Shriram Sharma. Later he gained world honor in the form of Yuga Rishi Pundit
Shriram Sharma Acharyaji. In this birth place of his a pillar of glory has been
built and in its backside area a building has been constructed etched with 14
jewels like quotes.
Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharyaji was born on Ashwin Krishna Trayodashi i.e.
Vikram Samvat 1986 as per the Hindu Panchang or almanac. As per the Christian
calendar his birth date is 20th September 1911.his revered mother’s
name is Shrimati Dhankunvari and revered father’s name is Pundit Roopkishor
Sharma. His mother Shrimati Dhankunvari was straightforward, steadfast and
imbued with deep faith in Almighty God. She adored serving everybody in a
selfless manner. Due to her generous nature people nearby would come to her for
help. She would help each and everyone as much as she could.
Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharyaji’s revered father called Pundit Roopkishor Sharma
was a well known scholar of the Shrimad Bhagwat Mahapurana text (Indian
Mythology). His mother Shrimati Dhankunvari affectionately called Tayiji
recalled: Before my child Shriram Sharma took birth a lot of cows would arrive
in our house. She also said: In my dreams I would see that from the eastern
direction air planes would come and shower flowers on our house. Further one
Goddess would shower flowers on my lap.
After a few
months of child Shriram Sharma’s birth a Sanyasi (ocher robed ascetic) came to
his house and kept staring at child Shriram. Tayiji his mother did not like
this. She asked: Revered Sir! Why are you staring at child Shriram? The Sanyasi
said: Mother! This child is a Sidha saint (God Realized). Saying thus the
Sanyasi bowed down in reverence to child Shriram and left his house.
Child Shriram’s body was thin yet from childhood itself he was very fearless. At
our doorstep many snakes, scorpions etc would slither by. He would remove them
from the way without any fear at all.
head for the forest nearby all alone. He would not get scared by ferocious
violent animals also. Tayiji his mother said: Without telling anyone Shriram
would go to the forest nearby all alone. When we would come to know we would be
very worried. When I would ask someone to search for Shriram that person would
tell us that he would be seated under a tree with eyes shut. Sometimes Tayiji
would see her son seated in the garden carving ‘Om’ or the Sathiya in the mud.
Shriram would love sharing things with others and hence would keep giving others
food, clothes etc. One day his mother Tayiji saw that he had given his small
scarf to a poor person. She was quite amazed to see this act of her son. She
asked Shriram: Son! Why did you give away your cloth to this beggar? He
answered: Mother! He was shivering with cold and hence he needed this cloth
One day his
mother Shrimati Dhankunvari came to know that he had given away all his food to
beggars. She asked Shriram: Son! Where is all your food? He answered: Mother! I
gave it away because I am learning how to observe Vratas or religious vows.
Shriram loved to serve poor, sorrowful people.
Cows on their
own would come and stand by child Shriram’s side. He would feed them fodder and
serve them. Sparrows, pigeons etc also would fearlessly peck grains in his
presence offered to them by him.
One day the
young boy Shriram started walking on a lonely path for quite a few kilometers
and finally reached a nearby railway station. There one neighbor of his saw
Shriram who asked him: Shriram! Where are you going? The answer was: I am going
to the lofty Himalaya Mountains. On hearing the boy’s answer the neighbor
laughed and took the boy with him to their village.
children would sit surrounding the young boy Shriram who would tell them
religious stories. The other children would avidly hear Shriram’s discourse.
revered father had a rare collection of ancient Sanskrit literature. Amongst
these were a few handwritten ones and some were books written on dry Bhoja
leaves. When his revered father had some time to spare he would spend it in
reading this rare collection of literature. When the young boy Shriram would see
his revered father reading this Sanskrit literature he would become very
curious. When on reading these pages his revered father passed some comment the
young boy Shriram would wonder as to how these papers taught his father to speak
thus? The young boy Shriram in a hidden manner would keep staring at his revered
father reading books thus.
One day the
young boy Shriram asked his mother: Tayiji! How do the papers in father’s hands
speak thus? On hearing this innocent curiosity of her small son his mother
smiled and explained to him the mystery of reading aloud. On hearing this
mystery the young boy Shriram was very happy. He resolved mentally to attain
After that day
the young boy Shriram would very attentively listen to what his father spoke. He
would love to hear his father talk thus and experienced immense joy from it. The
boy had heard many religious discourses and sacred teachings from his revered
One day his
revered father sent the young boy Shriram to the local Paathshala (school) for
education. On noting the very sharp brain skill of young Shriram his teachers
were very pleased. Young Shriram advanced in his studies quite swiftly. When his
father Pundit Roopkishor Sharma got news about Shriram’s excellent progress in
his studies he was very pleased. He hence decided to perform his son’s
Yajnopaveet (sacred thread) ceremony.
One day young
Shriram went to his mother Tayiji and stood in front of her. Tayiji seeing his
son’s serious face asked: What is the matter? Why are you so serious? Young
Shriram replied: Tayiji! I shall not go to Agra city to study in an English
medium school because if I go there I shall have to change my lifestyle. No
doubt I shall learn the good aspects of Englishmen yet I do not wish to follow
their culture, lifestyle and dressing mode. His mother Tayiji on hearing her son
speak thus asked in a bit of a worried tone: Beloved son! Tell me then what
shall you do henceforth? How is it possible to avoid studying in an English
medium school? You shall have to do something or the other. Young Shriram
replied: Tayiji! I shall not take up a job. I shall not go to each household to
give religious discourses (Kathas). I want to become self dependent and shall
teach others also how to earn money in a self dependent manner. His mother just
stared at her son dumbstruck!
One day young
Shriram said: To learn the art of wielding weapons for self defense only is not
wrong at all. It is only when you wield weapons for vile unethical acts that it
is erroneous. I shall hence learn how to wield a stick, sword etc. I shall learn
this science from Guru Hariya. Young Shriram was told that Guru Hariya belongs
to a low caste and hence you cannot make him your teacher. But young Shriram did
not budge from his decision and hence started learning the art of wielding
weapons albeit for self defense only.
Shriram’s body was thin and frail yet he oozed with amazing zest and strength.
In a few days itself he mastered many sciences pertaining to wielding weapons.
He also taught it to other friends of his village and very secretively chose a
small group of comrades in order to fight for India’s political freedom.
One day young
Shriram saw that an Englishman riding on a horse was following a rural girl
running fast. This girl was very scared and other people nearby just stood there
silently. Young Shriram refused to be a mere coward witness to this. He realized
the bad intentions of the Englishman and after hiding nearby he silently threw a
brick at the Englishman. The head of this Englishman split apart
and the scared girl hid somewhere. Thus she was saved from the dirty intentions
of the Englishman. The latter just kept muttering abuses in daze.
would also do a lot of social service. In those days in his village resided a
Harijan lady (backward caste) called Chapko. Her hands started showing symptoms
of advanced leprosy. Hence she was very sick. When young Shriram got to know of
this he went to her house for administering some medical therapy. Till she did
not get cured fully he continued to serve her despite stiff opposition from all
concerned. The old lady blessed him: One day you shall become a great renowned
saint and shall rule the hearts of all akin to an emperor.
studies in the village Madaras (school) young Shriram went to Agra city nearby.
In his village was a landlord called Hubbalal. Everyone was very terrorized with
atrocities he inflicted on everyone. He was a very wicked person. None liked to
even talk to him. After a few days, young Shriram returned to the village from
Agra city. He came to know that Hubbalal was very ill. Hence he went to
Hubbalal’s house and started serving him.
In Agra city
young Shriram organized a social service team. Their task was to serve
physically/mentally challenged people and give away clothes, food etc to those
in dire need.
saw young Shriram serving him he said: Son! I have sinned a lot and hence am
undergoing its dire reactions. I have terrorized people and hence I am very ill
today. Shriram saw a huge crowd of people standing outside Hubbalal’s house and
hence he told the crowd: You may hate sins but not the sinner. Thus when a
sinner is helpless due to sickness we must serve him.
revered father saw that now his son was capable enough to be given the
Yajnopaveet (Hindu sacred thread ceremony). The moment this pious thought this
crossed his mind he took Shriram to his childhood friend Pundit Madanmohan
Malviyaji who at that time resided in Kashi or Banaras. Mahamana Pundit
Madanmohan Malviyaji took a close look at young Shriram and was very pleased.
Madanmohan Malviyaji in his presence bestowed the Yajnopaveet (Hindu sacred
thread ceremony) to young Shriram and himself initiated the boy in Super Mantra
Gayatri Deeksha. He told young Shriram: Gayatri is a true Brahmin’s Kamadhenu
(wish fulfilling cow). Hence you must regularly chant Super Mantra Gayatri,
worship and meditate on it.
from Kashi or Banaras city both young Shriram and his revered father were seated
in a train. At that time young Shriram asked his revered father: What is the
true meaning of what Mahamana Pundit Madanmohan Malviyaji told me? His revered
father answered: It means that Super Mantra Gayatri is such a Mantra that it
fulfills all our inner desires. Young Shriram took proper note of this important
answer regarding Super Mantra Gayatri. Thus the seed of this Mantra firmly got
embedded in his mind and it started sprouting as days passed by.
surely young Shriram got immersed in chanting Super Mantra Gayatri implicitly
following the procedure prescribed to him. Hence daily he started chanting this
The following is
an incident on Vasant Panchmi (heralding spring season) in the year 1926 AD. It
was early dawn. Suddenly the room in which Shriram was doing his Gayatri
spiritual practice emitted sweet nectarine fragrance and in the eastern side a
mass of brilliant light was witnessed by him. From this mass of brilliant light
emerged a Rishi (saint) like form. This Rishi form said: Do not fear! I know you
since many past lifetimes of yours. You do not know who you were in your past 3
previous births. Much previously you were born as Saint Kabir. Then you were
born as Saint Swami Samarth Ramdas. After this you were born as Saint Swami
Ramkrishna Paramhans. In this present birth of yours you have to execute many
On hearing about
his 3 previous births Shriram got immersed in thoughts of wonder. He felt as
though he was in Tandra (half awake-half asleep). The great Rishi saint spoke
again: You have to execute 24 Purashcharanas of Super Mantra Gayatri. I am
telling you its method. Saying this much this great Rishi saint explained the
exact procedure and immediately then disappeared from sight. On that day young
Shriram lit the Akhand Jyoti (imperishable flame lamp) and till today this has
Slowly the Super
Mantra Gayatri Sadhana of young Shriram started progressing further. At this end
the freedom movement in India against alien British Rule had strengthened much
more. Young Shriram too joined in this struggle. He took part in various
activities for this freedom movement in India.
In the year 1928
AD it was winter season. Two butchers were carrying away a lame cow with them.
Young Shriram saw this pitiable state of the innocent cow and hence started
talking to the 2 butchers. The butchers demanded a fee for releasing the lame
cow from their wicked clutches. Somehow or the other young Shriram paid this
cash and thus freed the innocent cow.
Shriram took active part in the freedom movement in India and opposed the alien
British Rule tooth and nail. In a place called Jarkhi near Anvalkheda village he
led a procession opposing the British Government and when he fell down on the
ground after being beaten up mercilessly by British police officers he held on
to India’s flag by clenching it between his teeth. Thus so bravely he refused to
let the flag fall down on the ground despite being wounded badly. The police
tried to wrench away this flag from youth Shriram’s clenched teeth but failed
conference was organized in Kolkata city. Youth Shriram with his fellow aides
set off for Kolkata city to attend this conference. But before they could reach
the city some CID personnel following them incognito arrested them at the
Asansol railway station.
In this freedom
fight, Shriram was imprisoned. In this Asansol jail were other freedom fighters
like Mahamana Pundit Madanmohan Malviyaji, Devi Rani Nehru, Shri Rafi Ahmed
Kidwai, Shri Devdas Gandhi etc. Over here in the jail Shriram learned how to
read and write in English and that too by using a coal as a pen in order to
write on his eating plate made of metal.
released from jail youth Shriram focused his attention on creative tasks in his
village. Over here he opened a big center for weaving cloth etc. He named it
‘Bunta Ghar’. It was a beginning of rural cottage industry. Even today after
about a century has lapsed by people in Anvalkheda village today know the name
‘Bunta Ghar’ and its location.
police officers stationed in Agra district wrote in their report: As of now
Shriram is associated with Congress. If he does join its revolutionary wing he
can create havoc for the alien British government.
One day youth
Shriram seated in his room for spiritual practices was deeply thinking thus:
This body of mine shall definitely become old and frail one day and shall die
too. Hence what is the true goal of human life? Maybe our mind can find joy by
running after material pleasures but these materials can give sorrow and
diseases also. Hence it is best that my life is used for great wholesome
activities. Every moment of life is very precious.
In those very
days of a struggle based life his Revered Gurudeva directed him (subtly) to come
to the Himalayas. Hence youth Shriram all alone set off for the Himalaya
Mountains to meet his Revered Gurudeva Sarveshwaranandji. In those times
journeying into the lofty Himalaya Mountains was very tortuous and difficult.
But since behind this journey was a divine resolve (Sankalpa) hence Revered
Gurudeva Sarveshwaranandji all along the way helped him (subtly) and called
youth Shriram by his side. He gave details of all the programs that Shriram had
to carry out in future. Due to this meeting he felt highly energized and
It was a very
long tiring journey to Himalaya Mountains. At many spots he saw hermitages
(Ashramas). He saw the various activities and lifestyle of mendicants, ascetics,
Sanyasis etc. Hence Shriram deeply started cogitating over their way of living
here. He felt that a huge number of these ascetics etc remained without work,
lazy, illiterate and those that destroy any nation’s wealth. Hence Shriram
resolved to reform their way of living and attitude.
from his journey to Himalaya Mountains Shriram’s attention got focused on his
village’s animal wealth and agricultural endeavors. For apt reformation and
protection of these youth Shriram wrote small pocket size booklets which cost
hardly a few cents and published them. During this phase he took training as a
journalist in a daily newspaper called ‘Sainik’ and he also wrote poetry oozing
In these very
days youth Shriram went to visit Mahatma Gandhi at his Sabarmati Ashram and took
a close look at the method of working there. He also visited the great poet seer
Thakur Rabindranath Tagore at Shanti Niketan established by him. After a few
days he visited Pondicherry City where the great Mahayogi Shri Aurobindo
resided. At that time Shriram journeyed all over India for a fair length of
time. After meeting Mahayogi Shri Aurobindo, Thakur Rabindranath Tagore, Mahatma
Gandhi etc went to many other parts of India and thus gauged the state of India
as a close witness. He saw that majority of Indians were poor, illiterate and
had miniscule information. He hence searched for apt solutions in order to
educate them and give them important information regarding many arenas of day to
day living. One solution for this according to Shriram was to publish a
He said to
himself that in order to awaken consciousness in the lay public he shall have to
endeavor hard. People he felt were not well educated at all. Hence how shall
they read huge books? On mulling thus he decided that he would publish small
booklets on spiritual and social topics. He also printed pamphlets and took
others help to hand them over to one and all.
Shriram would go
to the main bazaar area and give water to the thirsty. He would also give out
pamphlets on animal disease diagnosis.
Shriram who was
now called Pundit Shriram Sharma would write literature in easy to follow
language style and they were full of useful tips. All facts written here were
very beneficial for peoples all round well being and never would it revolve only
around some particular religion. In fact in his writings oozed first hand
experiences of day to day living.
All human beings
all children of Almighty God! Thus none is higher or lower in stature. Castes,
creeds, communities etc have never been Almighty God’s creation. All these
differences and disparities are but superficial. In all creatures the soul
dwells equally. People hearing this would fully agree: Yes! What you say is
absolutely true. Differences amongst us are vain and futile.
In the year 1937
AD the 1st volume of ‘Akhand Jyoti Magazine’ was published from Agra
City. The very 1st copy of this 1st volume was placed in
front of the imperishable flame wick lamp in his sAdhana Room by a girl called
Gauri as per Pundit Shriram Sharma’s direction. The girl Gauri made a Swastik
sign on it with red vermillion powder and on it flowers, fruits and rice grains
extraordinary girl Gauri had suddenly arrived at Pundit Shriram Sharma’s house
on that auspicious day and till today no one knows from where she had come all
After some time
lapsed by in order to establish an office of ‘Akhand Jyoti Magazine’ in Mathura
city a building was rented. Then this building was given up and a new building
was rented in Ghiyamandi area. In this building many ghosts were known to
reside. On the upper floor of the building daily a lot of chaos was heard. One
night Pundit Shriram Sharma’s Acharya went to the upper floor with a lantern in
hand. He spoke to the ghosts: Please live and let us live too in peace. In these
7 rooms on the upper floor you all can dwell and below we all shall reside. The
ghosts did not give any reply yet after this episode never were loud chaotic
noises heard again.
Then came the
time period of a very struggle based 2nd world war. Materials the
world over were becoming costlier day by day and so many parts of India arson,
looting etc were reported. In these days of strife Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya
with a serene mind got immersed in deep thinking, mental reflection and
In the year 1943
AD his 1st wife passed away. As per commands given to him by his
Revered Gurudeva Sarveshwaranandji previously he got married to again to HH
Bhagwati Devi Sharmaji who was his holy consort in his previous births too. She
played a great role in Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya’s life of selfless world
service and hence received a lot of honor the world over as Vandaniya Mataji or
Revered Holy Mother.
Sarveshwaranandji in the very 1st Darshan (divine vision) itself
given to Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya had commanded: I am happy that you are
married. In between obstacles may crop up yet again you shall get the
companionship of a 2nd wife who was you consort in your previous
births too. She shall dwell by your side all your life as a faithful cooperative
partner in all your selfless world service activities. This consort of previous
births was none other than HH Bhagwati Devi Sharmaji.
HH Bhagwati Devi
Sharmaji called Revered Holy Mother also was born in to a very affluent landlord
family in Agra city. Since her ancestors were known to overflow with compassion,
philanthropy, generosity and selfless service to society this landlord clan was
highly respected and had gained renown too. Her father respected Shri Yashwant
Singh was a very influential landlord in that area. The childhood of HH Bhagwati
Devi Sharmaji brimmed with adoration from family members and was lovingly
protected. Right from girlhood she oozed with great pious qualities both within
and without. These tremendous qualities matured fully after she got the golden
opportunity to become the sacred life partner of Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya.
In those days HH
Bhagwati Devi Sharmaji had to carry out so many chores. Serving cows, feeding
them fodder, cooking food for so many guests etc were done by her throughout the
day. She would read so many letters written to Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya and
make arrangements for the daily spiritual practice of his etc. She would execute
all these tasks very devotedly and meticulously.
One day Pundit
Shriram Sharma Acharya with the help of his well wishers and comrades set up a
printing press in the rented building of his. Although this task was new yet he
did not shirk from hard work required to operate it. He put all his efforts in
each task of this printing press and also took help from family members.
He set up camps
for establishing individual contact with people and training them too. Each day
he would write so many letters. He established contact with ordinary lay folks.
He created awareness and a deep interest in the selfless tasks he advocated for
everyone’s overall well being.
In the printing
and editing of his magazine he worked so hard. Alongside his Super Power Gayatri
practices continued in full throttle. The moment he got time he would get
immersed in both reading and writing important useful literature.
One day a co
worker asked Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya: What has your spiritual practice or
Sadhana got to do with your activities of editing and publishing the ‘Akhand
Jyoti Magazine’? The reply was: This too is a practice of evolving life to a
higher stature of human glory. Its effect shall definitely be felt after a
certain time span passes by. Along with Super Mantra Gayatri chanting and
practice Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya executed profound studies and research on
Super Energy Gayatri. On the basis of his deep scientific research, mental
cogitation and meditation he wrote 3 gigantic volumes titled ‘Gayatri
Mahavijnana’ or ‘Super Science of Gayatri’. Thus he placed before the world a
refreshingly new philosophy of Gayatri.
housing ‘Akhand Jyoti Sansthan’ in Ghiyamandi-Mathura was not very big. The
activities of the sacred mission at hand were increasing day by day. Gayatri
Tapobhumi too had to be established and hence Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya left
for the River Yamuna shore in order to take a look at land to buy there.
A lot of wealth
was required for establishing Gayatri Tapobhumi and carrying out huge Yajna
programs. Hence HH Bhagwati Devi Sharmaji voluntarily said: I shall sell all my
precious jewelry so that you can buy the required land. Thus our sacred mission
shall become more widespread. Hence I request you not to stop your great
In the year 1953
AD on Vaishakh Purnima Day Gayatri Tapobhumi was established on the
Mathura-Vrindavan road and a Gayatri Temple also was built. For one month Pundit
Shriram Sharma Acharya observed Mauna (silence of speech) and lived merely on
drinking water. He resolved to make 1000 devotees/Sadhaks write 2.4 million
Super Mantra Gayatri with their hands.
In the year 1954
AD in Gayatri Tapobhumi camps on Science of Life and training for it were
conducted. In these discourses and camps topics useful for apt human living and
training in other useful tasks was given.
In the year 1956
AD in Mathura city a Gayatri Narmedha Yajna was performed. People manifested so
much enthusiasm for this Yajna. Thousands of people and devotees participated in
this Yajna and when some followers resolved to work all their life for this
sacred mission everyone present there realized the mysterious import of this
stupendous Gayatri Narmedha Yajna.
In the year 1957
AD a conference under the aegis of All India Gayatri Family was arranged. In
this conference in huge numbers members associated with All India Gayatri Family
participated in it. They were given information regarding various programs
related to this All India Gayatri Family.
In November 1958
AD a Super Gayatri Yajna was conducted wherein 1000 Kundis of Yajna pyres were
lit. In it thousands of devotees and followers participated. At that time the
main road from Mathura to Vrindavan spanning many miles was filled with tents of
pilgrims. In all directions there was a sea of lay public moving about.
In the above
Yajna 2 men riding separate cycles, catching hold of a flag in their hand while
chanting ‘Victory to Goddess Gayatri’ arrived there. In the same way another
devotee riding a horse from Jodhpur city, donning Jodhpur mode of dressing,
holding an orange flag with ‘Om’ written on it arrived at the Yajna dais in
Mathura. Along the way he was propagating the great teaching of Gayatri.
Gayatri Yajna was very humungous and grand. In it thousands of devotees taking a
religious vow (Vrata) took part with zest and zeal. The Yajna area was extremely
huge in measure. The lodging-boarding arrangements for devotees had been made on
the main road from Mathura to Vrindavan spanning many miles.
The program of
this Super Gayatri Yajna went on for many days. Saints, sages, ascetics etc gave
religious and spiritual discourses. The devotees observing Vrata participated
with deep faith. Without dowry, many marriages were conducted and innumerable
people vowed to give up their inner taints and bad habits.
Previous to this
Super Gayatri Yajna Gayatri chanting and practices was limited only to the
Brahmin class. Hence Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya encouraged people of all
castes, creeds, communities, religion etc to participate in this gigantic Yajna.
Not only this he made women also take active part in it and they did perform the
Gayatri Yajna. In this gigantic Yajna no donation was taken from anyone and none
were asked to give something in charity.
At the closing
ceremony of this Super Gayatri Yajna when devotees were bidding adieu their
hearts were oozing with sensitive sacred emotions. Thus this incomparable
experience gave birth to the All India Gayatri Family. Thus a refreshing new
environment got harbingered in.
After this 1000
Kundi Yajna Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya left to live in solitude and seclusion
but before doing so he handed over the onerous duty of Gayatri Tapobhumi
management and editing of the ‘Akhand Jyoti Magazine’ in the capable hands of
his respected consort HH Bhagwati Devi Sharmaji.
In its compact
form the Samhita Paath of the 4 Vedas were not available in those days. The same
condition was that of all 108 Upanishads, 6 Darshans, 18 Puranas, 20 Smritis, 24
Geetas, Aranyaks, Brahman, Nirukta etc. Hence Revered Gurudeva Pundit Shriram
Sharma Acharya endeavored hard in this direction and he zealously immersed
himself in a one pointed manner for compiling this entire Vangmaya (literature),
writing some commentaries on them called Bhashyas and editing tasks. At that
time HH Bhagwati Devi Sharmaji had deftly shouldered the responsibilities of
‘Akhand Jyoti Magazine’ and Gayatri Tapobhumi. Revered Gurudeva Pundit Shriram
Sharma Acharya then left in the very lonely area of Gangotri-Gomukh glacier in
the lofty Himalaya Mountains for 1 whole year in order to execute difficult
austerities. After returning from this journey he again commenced his writing
beginning itself Revered Gurudeva Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya firmly opined
that Indian Culture had bestowed 2 great boons on entire world human society in
the form of Gayatri and Yajna. He strongly believed that a person belonging to
any caste, community, creed, gender, region, religion etc had full right to
chant Super Mantra Gayatri and perform Gayatri Yajnas. For his entire lifetime
he steadfastly latched on to this great generous mode of thinking.
from his 1 year travel of seclusion we followers got to know that Revered
Gurudeva Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya had completed translation of Vedas,
Puranas and Upanishads and thus its publishing activities were commenced. Due to
this great task wisdom a new direction was attained.
In this very
sequence a new beginning ushered in the All India Gayatri Family in the form of
a 100 point based programs.
these, 100 point based programs Era Neo Creation oriented schools and camps too
commenced. Due to these creative education and training on various topics
poverty that was the root problem of a developing nation like India Revered
Gurudeva Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya felt that without giving training for
becoming self dependent this problem can never be uprooted. Hence for getting
trained in setting up small scale industries he made necessary arrangements and
also trained people in cottage industry management.
In the year 1967
AD Era Neo Creation Schools were set up. Via these schools training was
commenced related to topics useful in day to day living. Thousands of young men
and women participated in this training program.
In the year 1968
AD Revered Gurudeva Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya keeping in mind various
branches of modern science and beliefs of modern day intellectualism got notes
on many important questions related to them from various scholars and experts in
those realms. Thus about 20,000 pages giving details on these topics were
gathered. This new stream of Scientific Spirituality gave a refreshingly new
direction to spirituality from the year 1968-1990 AD. In the year 1978-79 AD so
many books were published on this subject and along side scientific research
studies too were initiated. In the years 1979-80 AD a camp for deep mental
reflection was organized. Once on visiting Gayatri Tapobhumi a very affluent
person got highly impressed. He hence went to visit Revered Gurudeva Pundit
Shriram Sharma Acharya. The affluent man said: You are carrying out propagation
of Super Mantra Gayatri very well. I wish that you also propagate Hindu Religion
thus. I shall donate a lot of wealth in order to carry out this task. Revered
Gurudeva Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya replied: I belong to all the religions of
the world. I love all religions equally. My chief goal is to awaken world
humanity. I am not a preacher of any particular religion. I thank you for your
help. That affluent man silently walked away.
This is an
episode related to December 1969 AD. At the Patna Junction Shri Vijaykumar
Sharma’s mother belonging to Moongher district died. They had come to witness
the 100 Kundi Gayatri Yajna organized there. As fate would have it at that very
time Revered Gurudeva Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya had arrived at Patna
Junction while on his way to Mathura. When he was given this sad news he
immediately came to the dead lady’s corpse and said: Son! Your mother is not
dead and hence, do wake her up. On hearing this so many thronging that area were
dumbfounded since suddenly the dead lady got up and reverently touched Revered
Gurudeva Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya hallowed feet. He gave her his blessings
and then boarded his train.
called Shriram Krishna Singh Betiya said: In October 1970 AD myself, my wife and
children had gone for a camp in Mathura. On getting an opportunity I talked
about our institution’s head-Shri Umakant Jha. Revered Gurudeva Pundit Shriram
Sharma Acharya very firmly said: Today his time is ending. At that time I could
not decipher the meaning behind these words. Yet when I reached my home I was
told that on that very day Shri Umakant Jha had shed his mortal coil. Hence it
is crystal clear that Revered Gurudeva Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya had the
mind blowing powers of seeing the unknown and unseen by the gross eyes.
June 1971 AD Revered Gurudeva Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya left for
Shantikunj-Haridwar (India). Thousands of his faithful devotees thronged by his
and his holy consort’s side to bid them adieu.They showered their sacred
devotional sentiments on their beloved Gurudeva and Holy Mother. As per his
revered Gurudeva Sarvaeshwaranandji’s direction Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya
left for the Himalaya Mountains in a few days itself.
As per his firm
resolve Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya went to meet his Gurudeva
Sarvaeshwaranandji. Holy Mother Bhagwati Deviji stayed back in
Shantikunj-Haridwar with a few aides and followers. At that time this place was
not well known. At that time over here dense forests existed.
Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya felt extremely pained on witnessing that more than
half the world population oozes with female power yet the condition of women in
India was so abominable. She was a prey to oppression, harassment, illiteracy
etc. Hence he focused his sharp vision in this direction and under the guidance
of Holy Mother Bhagwati Deviji set up camps for young girls in the year 1971 AD.
From the year 1975 AD an independent magazine was inaugurated titled ‘Mahila
Jagrati Abhiyan’ (women’s awakening campaign). From the year 1975 to 1979 AD

In the absence
of Revered Gurudeva Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya, Holy Mother Bhagwati Deviji

million Mantra chanting executed at Shantikunj-Haridwar. This was the
preliminary phase of women consciousness awakening.
Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya’s journey to Himalayas ended. After getting new
directions from his Gurudeva Sarvaeshwaranandji he returned to
Shantikunj-Haridwar. After returning here he gave proper guidance for various
creative tasks and thus Shantikunj became more and more widespread.
The branches of
Gayatri Parivar and that of Yug Nirman Yojana had spread out in very huge areas.
Revered Gurudeva Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya’s received many invitations from

part in Era Neo Creation tasks and they thus rendered widespread creative
programs in very far off regions of society.

inspiration of Revered Gurudeva Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya thousands of
Gayatri Shaktipithas and Prajnapithas were established. From the

were made to render them very useful. In Prajnapithas Darshan (philosophy) and
science are given more weight age.
Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya after conducting a fair bit of mental reflection
and deep cogitation for correlating modern science to spiritual sciences
established the Brahmavarchas Research Institution near Shantikunj-Haridwar.
Over here he encouraged expert scientists to find out the effect of Yajnas and
Mantra Japa chanting via systematic scientific research studies. Thus a new
beginning was made.

spiritual practices a Gayatri Nagar was established so that they could conduct
systematic scientific research studies on scientific spirituality. For educating
and training them and also choosing them Revered Gurudeva Pundit Shriram Sharma

era the requirement of protecting our environment and ecology is augmenting day

for protecting lush greenery and also rendering it widespread. He conjoined this
program to usage of forest medicinal herbs (Jadi Buti).
Pundit Shriram Sharma Acharya focused his attention also on experiments and
applications of the terrific energy of Mantra chanting and energy emerging from
Yajnas. He made due arrangements for the chemical analysis of smoke emanating

and subtle medium.
In this present
modern age along with physical bodily diseases mental illnesses also are rising
at an alarming rate. Under such conditions Revered Gurudeva Pundit Shriram
Sharma Acharya pondered deeply over a solution that could put a full stop to
this. Hence he made proper arrangements for imparting apt education and training
for Asan, Pranayam and Prajna Yoga at Shantikunj-Haridwar. Right since then till
today thousands of people are benefitting from such superb training.

GREAT SAINTS AND
LEADERS’ SACRED UTTERANCES WITH REFERENCE TO REVERED GURUDEVA SHRIRAM SHARMA
Mahayogi Shri Devraha Baba Sarkar said: I ceaselessly offer my respects to the
Sidha devotee of Gayatri viz. Acharyaji. He always resides in my heart.
The great saint
of Arya Samaj, Mahatma Anand Swami says: Acharyashri has taken the great task
commenced by our founder Maharshi Dayandji further ahead by making available
this great science and spiritual practice of Super Power Gayatri to every world
human. Acharyashri and Gayatri were one in form.
Maharaj who had reinstated the glory of Sanatan Dharma sacredly spoke thus: In
this present era Acharyashri can be called the Father of Gayatri. He saw to it
that Gayatri belonged to all. Lest Gayatri had remained in the hands of the
Brahmin class only possibly the Super Science of Gayatri would have become
The great saint
Swami Akhandanand Saraswatiji said: Those who wish to use Gayatri akin to sacred
River Ganga waters must tread the path laid down by Acharyashri. It is easy to
walk on and without obstacles. In fact Acharyashri has rendered Yajnas also as
easy to avail akin to going to temples for having Darshan of Almighty God.
The great saint
Swami Kalyandevji said: My relationship with Acharyashri is akin to that between
Lord Shri Krishna and his devotee-friend Sudama. People go to Mathura-Vrindavan
cities to have Darshan of Almighty God in temples there but I would regularly go
to Mathura to visualize the sacred Yajnas performed by Acharyashri there.
When the ex
President of India Dr Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan was gifted an entire set of Rishi
literature commented upon by Gurudeva Shriram Sharma Acharya he said: Lest I had
received this immortal nectar of wisdom much previously possibly I would never
have entered the arena of politics. I would hence have sat at the hallowed feet
of Revered Acharyaji and imbibed education in Spiritual Philosophy.
A volunteer of
Gayatri Parivar gifted a set of Bhashyas or commentaries on Vedas written by
Gurudeva Shriram Sharma Acharya to Acharya Vinoba Bhave who then said: Such a
wonderful commentary can be authored only by an extraordinary Rishi personality.
Can any one else possess such stupendous capability? In the big meeting that
Acharya Vinoba Bhave was addressing he kept eulogizing this commentary for a
fair length of time. It was Acharya Vinoba Bhave who bestowed the title of
‘Vedmurti’ or an icon of the Vedas on Gurudeva Shriram Sharma Acharya.
June 1991 AD the then President of India-Shri Shankar Dayal Sharma while
releasing a postal stamp in honor of our Gurudeva Shriram Sharma Acharya said:
Very much like me I look upon Shriram Sharma Acharya as a special profound
spiritualist oozing with radiant talent, imbued with strong will power and
possessing immense self faith.
bestowing modern day logic and proof to both theory and spiritual practices has
shown us that path of social transformation for which the future generations to
come in many more eras shall always remain humbly grateful to him. I strongly
believe that Shriram Sharma Acharyaji’s spiritual personality is totally one
with his social reformer based personality.
