"Be about progress" was a prime mantra for Acharya Tulsi. He would always think with the times. In 1948, Acharya Tulsi was spending his chaturmas in Chapar. There he started to analyze and ponder over the future activities and programs of the sect. He focused on the needs of society and the Terapanth organization at that time. His observations raised some key questions:

  • How can we empower and uplift the lives of our devotees?
  • What is the role of religion in uprooting blindly followed social customs?
  • How do we raise the education level of Terapanthi monks and nuns?
  • What is the methodology to adequately train those willing to enter monkhood?

After he discussed his observations with wise monks, he devised the strategy to structure and implements his ideas. He laid the foundation for several new programs to which we can attribute the reinvigoration of the Terapanth sangh.

The programs included

  • The Anuvrat Movement.
  • Spiritual training programs for monks and nuns.
  • The founding of Parmarthik Shikshan Sanstha to train future nuns.
  • Program for suppressed (lower) castes.

Social programs were introduced for various segments of society which intended to break outmoded and often cruel social traditions interwoven into the fabric of society, and to build a healthier India.
