The Great Ambler Ascetic

Bhagwan Mahavir, Gautam Buddha and Shankaracharya had lit the torch of religion through their religious sojourns. Similarly, Acharya Tulsi was a life-long traveler who walked with a purpose to enlighten the people of the country. He traveled thousands of miles on foot throughout the country. He traveled from Rajasthan in the west to Kolkata in the east and from Punjab in the north to Kanyakumari in the south, with the mission of establishing the values of humanity. That is why people know him as 'the God of humanity' or a 'humanitarian saint'.

To reach as many destinations as possible strictly by walking was the life-vow of Acharya Shree Tulsi. To extend his contact with the people, he undertook long journeys. During his travels, he encountered literary scholars, many religious leaders and numerous other prominent people. Maithilisharana Gupta, Balkrishna Sharma and Ramdhari Singh Dinkar, the national poets, Jainendra, reputed poetess Mahadevi Verma and others were thoroughly impressed by his vibrant personality. Acharya Vinoba Bhave, Chakravarti Rajgopalacharya, Kakakalelkar, Jayprakash Narayana and Purushottamdas Tandon were deeply connected with Acharya Tulsi. Whenever they had an opportunity to visit him, they would discuss openly with the common goal of uplifting the masses.

In the times of Acharya Kalugani, monks were confined to travel within Rajasthan, Malva (MP) and Haryana. These limits were later extended. In contrast, Acharya Shree Tulsi set records for the distances he travelled on foot. He covered more than 70,000 km.
