Arsha Vidya
What is Arsha Vidya s Arsha Vidya

We, human beings are born with a physical body & a mind within. Both physical body & mind is endowed with immense potential to grow.

The physical growth is natural. We just have to feed & protect it. Physical body grows in time & becomes mature naturally. However mind doesn’t mature by itself. Mind matures not by time but by Self Efforts-Education.

આ આધુનિક યુગમાં આપણે વિજ્ઞાનનો આભાર માનીએ છીએ કે તેના વડે આપણું બાહ્ય જીવન વધુ સરળ તથા સુવિધા ભર્યું બનેલ છે. અગાઉ કદી ઉપલબ્ધ નહોતી તેવી વસ્તુઓ આજે ઉપલબ્ધ બની છે. વાહન વ્યવહાર તથા સંદેશા વ્યવહારે જગતને ખૂબ નજીક લાવી દીધું છે. આજે આપણે “ગ્લોબલ વિલેજના” નાગરિક બન્યા છીએ.

    • Swamiji has, in a very systematic and logical manner made out the case for return of the control of Hindu religious place to Hindus. He begins by discussing the basic tenets of Sanatan Dharma, which has no founder or a timeline of establishment.

      Swamiji brings much needed clarity on understanding what is Sanatan Dharma and it's relevance to temples.

      Swamiji states that a false narrative has been created - that Hindu places of worship are unaccountable and discriminatory - leading to control of temples, by the state, whose function is to regulate, not control as stated by Justice Venkatchellaya. Swamiji thanked Jagadguru Sri Sri Swami Nirmalnathji, Santoshji, Acharya Shri Krishnamaniji, P.Pu. Shringeri Shankaracharyaji, represented by Shri Gaurishankarji, for devoting their precious time, in this endeavor.Watch this masterful Discourse.
