Krinvanto Vishvam Aryam Make This World Noble



The Arya Samaj was founded by Maharshi Swami Dayananda Saraswati (1824-1883) in April, 1875 with the sole object of reviving the religion propounded  in the oldest scripture of the world, namely the Vedas. It is an established fact, which had been accepted by all, that prior to about 5,000 years the world knew of no religion other than the Vedic.

Swami Dayananda not only opposed the worshipping of idols, trees, tombs,rivers, mountains, snakes etc, he also questioned the logic of animal sacrifice in the name of God,offering food & other item to deceased forefathers and many such absurd rituals.On the social front, he fought against untouchability and sufferings of widows and supported education to girl-child and remarriage of widows.

Swami Dayananda's soul revolted against the illogical state of affairs and started a crusade against what he believed to be opposed to the dictates of reason and knowledge.Arya Samaj stands for the principles set by Swami Dayananda Saraswati.
