Swami Dayanand Saraswati and Arya Samaj
The first Arya Samaj unit was formally set up by him at Bombay in 1875 and later the headquarters of the Samaj was established at Lahore. Its founder, Dayanand Saraswati was born in the old Morvi state in Gujarat in a brahmin family. He wandered as an ascetic for fifteen years (1845-60) in search of truth.
Dayanand’s vision of India included a classless and casteless society, a united India and an India free from foreign rule, with Aryan religion being the common religion of all. He gave the slogan “Back to the Vedas”.
Swami Dayanand Saraswati Education
Meaning of Education- According to Swami Dayananda education imparts true and real knowledge about a master, self-development, and welfare of all living beings. In other words, it should inculcate a spirit of service and help to others. In this way, according to Swami Ji, education is a supreme and most important moral process for the development of mankind.
Swami Dayananda says, “A man without education is only a man in the name. It is bound in the duty of a man to get an education, become virtuous, be free from malice and preach for all well-being of people advancing the cause of righteousness.”
The Teacher’s Role– Great importance is given to the role of the teacher by Swami Dayanand. The teachers are to be learned, of good character, and devoted to their task. There is no room for arrogant teachers who are not dedicated to their task. There has to be a close relationship, like that of a father and son, between the teacher and his pupil.
