Terapanth Establishing Day

“Take A Vow To Move On The Path Shown By The Master”

Acharya Mahaprgaya

Jaipur, 18 July2008


Guru Purnima” is very auspicious day in Indian culture. We are very fortunate that we got our master on this day. It is easy to have different luxuries in life but very difficult to find the real Master. If path is not correct, man will remain roamed here and there without any target. Hence we have to search the right way, which can be shown by a Guru only.


Further on the eve of Terapanth Establishment Day, Acharya Mahapragya said that that person is the real master who himself moved on non violent path and made other to move on the right path. He never expects something in return but always tries to give only. 250 years before, Terapanth got the revolutionary Acharya Bhikshu who himself moved fearlessly and neutrally on the path shown by Bhagwan Mahavira and inspired other also to move on the same. He had never put any demand.

Yuvacharya Mahashraman in his address said that there are two aspects of revolution of Acharya Bhikshu – Conduct aspect and Thought aspect. His conduct was very strong as per the rules and his thoughts were fearless and having quench for truth. He had faced tough times then too he hits the blind beliefs and untruths by his writing. His view was person need to be courageous if he wants to get the truth. Bhikshu was blended with courage and intelligence and has abundant patience to fight and bear adversities.

In all religion, importance of Guru has been considered because soul is wondering since thousands of years. And to get rid of this wondering, Guru is the only person. This is the nature of Guru to help the common man to get rid from this cycle.
