In the true tradition of Jain Acharyas we are lucky to have Acharya
Vidyanandji in the 20th century. It is for many many centuries that a
person of this calibre, vision, knowledge, exceptional managerial skills
and towering personality is available to the Jains.
Many historical and landmark projects were undertaken by him to help the
Jains to come together (cutting across the sectarian barriers) and
understand the great treasures (of values, philosophy and literature)
inherited by us as a result of excellent work done by Jain Acharyas over
many many centuries.
His command over many languages (current and ancient), depth of knowledge
and great amount of research in old scripts is reflected in his actions,
thinking, discourses and many books written by him.
He has widely traveled across the length and breadth of the country
covering thousands of miles on barefoot including visit to ice covered
Amarnath Caves in Himalayas accessible only for a few days in a year for
the benefit of all living beings.
May his continued presence be a constant source of inspiration for all of
us to spread the message of Sarvodaya (world religion), for the benefit of
all living beings.
