Citizens of India very well know that river Ganges originates from the Gangotri glacier. Gangotri town situated in Uttarkashi region which is one of the 4 major pilgrim spots (Char Dham) in Uttarakhand state was burnt to naught due to a curse of Maharshi Vishwamitra. On this very spot Rishi Bhagirath performed terrific austerities in order to liberate his 60000 ancestors. Thus River Ganges that dwells in heaven was happy to manifest on earth.
In this present era akin to Rishi Bhagirath another Rishi incarnated in the form of Ved Murti Taponishtha Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya who by rendering the world renowned sacred pilgrim spot Haridwar his land of activities aided the flow of Ganges of Divine Wisdom (Jnana Ganga) in the entire world. It is because of this that today the world over Shantikunj (All World Gayatri Family HQ) founded and established by him is honored as the Gangotri of Divine Wisdom of the 21st century.
We all are aware how not only our country India but the entire world is combating various problems. If we delve deep into all the problems of the entire world we will realize truly that the single underlying cause of all this is human tainted intellect. Maybe thousands of efforts shall be executed yet as long as a wholesome sacred intellect does not manifest in world humans till then no permanent solutions for these problems can be unveiled. It is only those who possess a pious intellect that can have faith in its unlimited potential. Instead of dying due to various worrisome situations he/she even with very few means shall lives of joy, peace and satiation and shall become a pillar of strength for others too. In our Sanatan Culture the supreme prayer for awakening a great sacred intellect is Gayatri Meditation. Super Mantra Gayatri belonging to the Vedas possesses such a self manipulating mechanism as a result of which man’s tainted intellect is wiped off and instead a sacred intellect develops fully. This fact has been well accepted the world over on the basis of deep research conducted regarding it.
This belief has prevailed since time immemorial but if we study details of 30-40 years previously not everyone was given the right to chant Gayatri Mantra. It is said that Rishis Vishwamitra and Vashishtha had ‘locked’ (Keelit) this Mantra. Only one special class of people was given the right to chant this Mantra. The results are crystal clear. A tainted intellect kept increasing in world humans and disparity and bad will spread like wild fire everywhere. A heavenly situation of the past got converted into hellish situations the world over. The Rishi of this era Ved Murti Taponishtha Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya akin to Rishis Vishwamitra and Vashishtha of yore performed terrific penance so as to end once and for all every objection related to Gayatri Mantra chanting. He by urging the entire world to accept that the Varna or caste system in India is not based on birth but that has its basis in what type of actions we perform further inspired all to undergo Gayatri Meditation and slowly but surely by developing a great sacred intellect one must attain true Brahmin-hood. It is only a great pious intellect that can solve any world problem however complex it is. It is such an intellect that can harbinger heavenly situations on earth. Despite obstacles existing Ved Murti Taponishtha Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya emphatically proclaimed to the world that this world certainly is not headed towards destruction but in fact this world shall reach a zenith of glory. In the year 1986 AD he christened the 21st century as ‘21st century-A bright future’. The sacred land of the activities of this Rishi who via the power of his austerities rendered easily accessible the method of activating a sacred intellect in world humans as shown great Rishis of yore is Shantikunj (All World Gayatri Family HQ, Haridwar, Uttarakhand, India) which today is worshiped the world over as the Gangotri Glacier of Divine Wisdom of the 21st century.
THE STREAM OF SACRED DIVINE WISDOM IS FLOWING SWIFTLY:
This year 2011 AD is being celebrated the world over as the birth centennial of Ved Murti Taponishtha Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya. He was the founder inspirer of a world thought based revolution. Hence this year is also called the Century of Thought Revolution. In the entire country book fairs have been set up wherein literature written by Ved Murti Taponishtha Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya has been exhibited. Not only lay public but even great thinkers, authors, saints, orators etc on seeing these exhibitions of 3200 books written by him are spell bound by their contents. It is definitely mind boggling to note that volumes of literature, of highest stature, that transforms the lives of all in a multifaceted way have been penned by a single individual. Yet akin to Rishi Bhagirath Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma via his power of penance like River Ganges flowing in heaven transformed the entire world positively by ushering in the Ganges of Divine Wisdom which is flowing in the entire world.
BELIEF THE WORLD OVER IS CHANGING FOR THE BETTER:
Recently in Shantikunj an auspicious inauguration of Khadi Gram Udyog Training Center took place. The chief guest of this auspicious inauguration Mr. Jayshankar Mishra (CEO of Indian Government’s Khadi Gram Udyog Ayog) said beliefs regarding religion and spirituality are now changing at a fast pace. Today my son also does the Tilak, goes to the temple, reads spiritual books and performs worship rites too. Previously 30-40 years back this faith was precariously dangling on a precipice. Educated young people shied away from religion and spirituality in those times. No doubt this transformation has taken for many reasons yet its chief inspirer is the founder of scientific spirituality Ved Murti Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya.
Acharyaji while testing religions on the basis of scientific principles helped influence the world positively with its scientific nature, utility value and amazing effect. He himself lived a life of great ideals and said that instead of following religion blindly from generation to generation it must be imbibed only after testing it on the basis of true discrimination or Viveka. The goal of religion is not to fulfill selfish transient desires but is meant for self purification, developing soul potential and destroying erroneous traditions and blind faith of all sorts.
SHANTIKUNJ-A MINT FOR DEVELOPING OUR INNER PERSONALITY:
Today in India there are hundreds of temples and pilgrim spots. Shantikunj which is a cut above all of them has its own unique identity. Revered Gurudeva Shriram Sharma has not established this as a temple or hermitage/Ashram. In fact he developed as a mint for developing our inner personality in a great manner. From here has commenced a gigantic task of rejuvenating the tradition of mass education via the institute of religion. He used to say that today the world over the epidemic of a disease called vile intellect has spread far and wide. Thus we must reach out to millions of such diseased people and ward off this rampant epidemic of a tainted brain. In order to fulfill this task in 1971 AD he founded Shantikunj (All World Gayatri Family HQ, Haridwar, Uttarakhand, India). Later till today incessant training programs are being conducted. Over here daily 3000 participants get trained in various fields. Over here at regular intervals continuous 9 day camps are conducted called Sanjivani Sadhana Camp, Yugshilpi Camp of 1 month, 3 monthly Music Training Programs and a 45 days Camp for Rural Management Training. Apart from this, seminars are held here for teachers, professors, scout-guides, police, government officials and industrial workers.
Chiefly in all camps and Dev Sanskriti University education is imparted regarding the art of living a spiritual life. Along with camps held at Shantikunj Gayatri Mantra chanting programs are compulsory. Over here is the temple of Vedmata Gayatri. It is a part and parcel of the art of living a theistic life. Sacred monuments of Vedmurti Taponishtha Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya and his divine consort HH Bhagwati Devi Sharma too dwells here called ‘Prakhar Prajna-Sajal Shraddha’. Faithful devotees experience that bowing down to these monuments gives same results and blessings that they got by doing so when the divine couple were alive in their mortal coil. On the Vasant Parva of 1926 AD Acharyaji had lit a flame torch that day when his Guru from the Himalayas appearing in the form of subtle divine light (astral body) had given him a taste of Self Realization. This imperishable flame torch is ceaselessly kept lit even today at Shantikunj. Every day thousands of visitors who visualize this torch and all those who are imbued with deep faith attain the divine light of inspiration and potent energy from it. Shantikunj has also opened the Dev Sanskriti University from 2002 AD which has got approval from the Indian Government and University Grant’s Commission of India. In this University basic courses, graduation courses and advanced research based courses are being conducted. This in itself is a rare University. Exceptional are its courses and syllabus. It lays great emphasis on rendering its students advanced at the soul level, sanctified as far as the inner personality is concerned and making them more accountable and responsible towards duties regarding world welfare. From Shantikunj-the Gangotri of Divine Wisdom of the 21st century many revolutionary tasks have set rolling. Over here one will find no communal or caste based disparity. Everyone is inspired here to attain true Brahmin sacred qualities. From here commenced the slogan ‘21st Century-Women’s Century’ as proclaimed by Acharyaji. From here all creative tasks are gaining momentum so as to spread out in the entire world. Shantikunj has set up its own Task Force so as to reach out and serve sorrow stricken people experiencing agony at every step in their lives.
