On the completion of the 24
mahapurashcharanas, Pandit Sriram Sharma Acharyaji established Gayatri
Tapobhumi at Mathura (India) in 1953. He organised a grand
Gayatri Yajna in 1958, which served as a base to launch the Yug Nirman Yojna, a
global movement for moral, cultural, intellectual and spiritual refinement and
reconstruction. The objectives of this movement are to reform the individual,
the family and social values of mankind and to change the current ideologies
and concepts of morality and social structure for a better tomorrow.
Through various activities at
Mathura, including the performance of Yagyas on large scale, Acharyaji
gathered a team of dedicated men and women. Thus the organization called
“Gayatri Pariwar” was born. The period 1971-1990 witnessed remarkable multifaceted accomplishments of
Acharyaji's life. He climbed the arduous and mystic heights of the Himalayas
several times and stayed there for specific sadhnas as per the guidance of his
guru. In 1971 he instituted the mission's headquarters at Shantikunj (Haridwar,
India) as an academy for moral and spiritual awakening and training.
Here he began revival of ancient spiritual disciplines that were the hallmarks
of Indian Culture.
