The Terapanth Dharam Sangh, Jainism and the tradition of Indian philosophy and thought owe a lot to Acharyashree's multidimensional work. Acharyashree has made significant contribution to them.

Contribution to Terapanth

  • New avenues in the field of education
  • New experiment in sadhana
  • Expansion of the areas of his vihar (travelling on foot)
  • Philosophical  interpretation of Acharya Bhikshu's doctrines.
  • Leaning towards investigation into truth
  • Capacity for struggling against odds
  • Creation of a new band of enlightened young monks and nuns.

Contribution to Jain Religion

  • Religious reconciliation
  • Projecting Jain religion as a religion of the masses
  • Presenting Jainism as a religion with a scientific basis
  • Investigative editing of the Jain Agamas
  • Inventing Preksha Meditation, a Jain technique of sadhana, and carrying research into its potentialities by way of experiments
  • Jeevan Vigyan - a revolutionary idea of the science of living.

Contribution to Indian Philosophy and Thought

  • Emotional integration
  • Elucidating Ahimsa as a universal religion
  • Formulating Anuvrat vows and sponsoring a movement to propagate them.
  • Bringing about a conciliation between science and religion.

We find men of the second half of the twentieth century suffering from the effects of a self-devastating civilisation. They tend to feel afflicted with scepticism, dissatisfaction, insecurity, derangement, indignation and frustation. They are in need of a direction or guidance that may lead them to look within. Many men who come into this world are capable of showing the correct path to people. Acharya Tulsi is one of such great men. He has striven hard to solve the problems besetting his age, society and nation.
