About the Book


Acharya Mahaprajna was one of the most celebrated Jain thinkers of the world and is the tenth Acharya of the Jain Shwetambar Terapanth sect. Born in 1920 in a village in Rajasthan, he became a monk at the age of ten. He got his education under the guidance of Acharya Shree Tulsi, who launched the Anuvrat movement in 1949 to rid the world of violence and hatred and free religion form sectarianism.


A multidimensional personality and a renowned scholar of Indian and Western philosophy and religion, Acharya Mahaprajna was a prolific writer and was called a ‘modern Vivekananda’. He traversed more than 100,000 km on foot and visited 10,000 villages to spread the message of non-violence. To this purpose he embarked on and Ahimsa Yatra in 2001. He was honoured with the Communal Harmony Award in 2004 for his contribution in this field.


This book is an authorised biography of this great saint who propounded ahimsa, compassion and other human values throughout his life.
