Prof. Prem Kumar Dhumal said that Acharya Shri Ram Sharma simplified the Vedic Knowledge and made it available to the million of people through the books written by him. Vedas and Puranas were originally written in Sanskrit and are difficult to understand for the common people. Acharya Shri Ram Sharma made this vast treasure of knowledge available to the people in simple language. He was speaking on the occasion of birth centenary celebrations of Pandit Shri Ram Sharma Acharya, Founder of Gayatri Parivar organized in Shanti Kunj at Haridwar in Uttrakhand today.
Chief Minister said that Acharya Shri Ram Sharma said “he is not an individual but a thought and by changing the thought, change of era would become possible”. Acharya Shri Ram Sharma showed the path of knowledge and salvation to the world and published more than 3200 books in his life time which provided the people with understating of Hindu religion in simple words. He said that Acharya Ji played a prominent role in freedom struggle and was also sent to jail many times. He dedicated his life for the cause of social service and for the welfare of suffering humanity. He said that not following the system of joint family was against our tradition. He said that in joint families, it was possible to look after the old members of the family and was instrumental in providing basic knowledge about Indian customs and tradition to the children.
Prof. Dhumal appealed that teaching of Acharya Shri Ram Sharma should be preached so that India can become ‘Vishav Guru’ in 21st Century.
