Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati was a spiritual teacher, profound thinker, philosopher and master of Vedanta. As a world renowned spiritual leader his influence on the world stage has been enormous. Posthumously awarded the Padma Bhushan, Swamiji was the founder of AIM for Seva, Swami Dayananda Educational Trust, Arsha Vidya Research & Publication Trust and Arsha Vidya Gurukulams in India and USA.
Though deeply rooted in the richness of Indian tradition Pujya Swamiji was contemporary in his thinking and approach to the issues of the day. Swamiji’s impeccable logic, brilliant analysis, erudition, precise use of language, and humour made him the greatest teacher of Advaita Vedanta. His discourses taught the most profound truths in such a simple language that it left the audience spellbound. Swami Dayananda Saraswati did not confine himself just to Vedanta. His benevolence and empathy extended to all civilizations, and all cultural forms has helped bring positive change in the lives of thousands of people. He strove to preserve, nurture and appreciate the diversity of human culture. There is no place for aggression, domination or conversion in his all embracing approach.
