About The Book

Founder of Arya Samaj and Gurukuls for imparting Vedic education, Swamy Dayanand Sarswati was one of the most radical socio-religious reformers in the history of India. He propagated egalitarian approach of the Vedas at a time, when widespread casteism was prevalent in the society. He was against idol worship. He underwent rigorous training under Swami Virjanand Saraswati. Dayanand Saraswati undertook a tour of the entire country, made fiery speeches condemning the caste system, idolatry, and child marriages. Dayanand Saraswati founded Arya Samaj to promote social service. He gave new interpretations to reform the stagnant Hndu thought through his book "Satyarthprakash" (The Light of Truth). He profusely quoted the Vedas and other religious texts to insist that salvation was not the only motto of a Hindu or Arya, as was believed. To lead a fruitful worldly life, working for a noble cause was important, and he preached that salvation was possible, through social service.
