About : 

  • The Arya Samaj was founded by Swami Dayanand Saraswati on April 7, 1875 in Bombay with ten fundamental principles of universal character to revive and propagate Vedic Dharma and Aryan culture. As enshrined in these principles, the Arya Samaj is a world movement. It exhorts all to accept truth and renounce untruth. Its prime object is to do good to the world, making people physically strong, spiritually enlightened and socially uplifted. It preaches love, justice and righteousness towards all without distinction of race, caste or creed.
  • The Arya Samaj has played a conspicuous role in the realms of social and religious reforms and in the rejuvenation of modern India. From its very inception it has been a pioneer in the removal of untouchability and caste system, emancipation and education of women, removal of child marriage and in the propagation of Hindi as the lingua franca of India, and promotion of Sanskrit.
  • The Arya Samaj, which has its headquarters in New Delhi, has a large number of units located in India and abroad. It has a network of institutions such as schools, colleges and Gurukuls, orphanages and homes for widows and destitute women.
