Acharya Shree Tulsi - A Legend Of Humanity: Parmarthik Shikshan Sanstha

Published: 10.01.2014

The increasing number of sadhvis and the need to accommodate the changing needs of prospective sadhvis brought about a new idea: that girls and women who wish to be initiated should undergo specific training and education as the foundation of a bright, intellectual, spiritual and meaningful ascetic life.

Acharya Tulsi would always engage himself to search ways to develop innovative and constructive work. This particular idea was a way to fulfill the vision of Acharya Kalugani. Predictably, the naysayers were negative and unsupportive. But enthusiastic Acharya Tulsi would become more resolute with every criticism.

He took steps to establish an institute known as Parmarthik Shikshan Sanstha (A spiritual training center) in 1949. The women who wanted to enter monkhood would be required to study a general curriculum in this institute. Initiates were known as mumukshu, and after graduating from general study (U.G.) they could attain a variety of postgraduate academic qualifications including post-graduation (P.G.), M.Phil., research (PhD) etc. The mumukshu were also provided opportunities for practicing meditation, learning Jain Philosophy, ancient languages and Sadhana (spiritual practice). More than 500 mumukshus (males and females) have been trained at the Parmarthik Shikshan Sanstha and have already been initiated in Terapanth order till date.
