The sacred occasion of 'Bhikshu Chetna Varsh'. The inner urge to present Acharya Bhikshu in a wider context. It resulted in a series of activities grounded in religious austerity, meditation and observance of religious rites. Along with that it was decided to acquaint the people with the ideas and experiences of Acharya Bhikshu, which were to be presented in everyday language in the modern context, and in a simple and natural style. To implement the above decision it was thought to have four booklets written on him and to prepare an anthology of Bhikshu vani (Acharya Bhikshu's teachings). The work was allotted to the following monks and nuns:

  1. Kraantdarshi Acharya Bhikshu
    (Siddhant aur Darshan)
    (Acharya Bhikshu: A Revolutionary Visionary (Doctrine and Philosophy)

  2. Acharya Bhikshu ki Anushashan Shaili
    (Acharya Bhikshu's Style of Discipline)

  3. Aise the Bhikshu
    (So Great was Acharya Bhikshu)

  4. Acharya Bhikshu ke Vicharon
    ki Prasangikta
    (Relevance of Acharya Bhikshu's Philosophy)

  5. Bhikshuvani
    (Thus Spake Acharya Bhikshu)

The books got ready. They were read out to me, which convinced me that written in the simple language they would prove useful in understanding Acharya Bhikshu's ways of thinking. At the same time ' Jai Tulsi Foundation' decided to make Acharya Bhikshu's ideas available to speakers of different languages. The original Hindi texts are ready and it is hoped their translations into other languages would be undertaken.


The principles expounded by Acharya Bhikshu are ex­tremely useful for a religious revolution. They can also play an important role in offering solutions to the many ongoing controversies in the field of religion. From the above point of view making these principles accessible to the people is not only necessary and topical but also a solution to the problems relating to religion. I firmly believe that by study­ing them readers will see a ray of light amidst the darkness of religious confusion.
