About : 

  • Maharaj ji loved and honoured each and every religion and graced all programmes organised by them as a special invitee. He took part in Acharya Vinobha Bhave‘s Bhudan Movements. He attended the World Conference of Religion and World Peace in Japan in 1955. His wisdom lives on in his GRAM GEETA which provided inspiration in the work for national reconstruction. He worked hard to convert devotion to God into service to mankind and the nation. Consequently he transformed traditional prayer organizations into disciplined, broad based groups of devout young men and women who engaged in constructive social works. They held yearly festivals and helped to spread the message of service to mankind.
