Acharya Tulsi - A Peacemaker Par Excellence: Pilgrimages

Published: 16.04.2013

Acharyashree thinks that the greatest shrine on earth is man himself and that all shrines are the creations of his inner power. He undertook long marches for developing man's inwardness. Hence, in a way, they are pilgrimages in themselves. In the course of his long barefoot journeys he also visited some of the shrines. Viewed from that standpoint too, his marches are veritable pilgrimages i.e. Mai-than, Mayurakh Dam, Jhumari Talaiya Dam, etc. Besides, he has also been to some old shrines. He went to see the well-known Vedic shrine Devghar Prayag. He visited the Buddhist shrines at Bodh Gaya, Sarnath, Nalanda, etc. He spent many days at the Jain shrines like Rajgrih, Sammed Shikhar, Abu Ranakpur, etc.

Acharyashree always went on a pilgrimage to new shrines. He went to see the prestigious educational institutions like Banaras Hindu University, Shantiniketan, Baroda Sanskrit University, Bhandarkar Research Institute, Poona, etc.

His life is a living example of anekant philosophy. He visits all places and meets all people.

He rejects the one-sided view that stresses complete agreement or disagreement.
