Description
About the Author

Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya, a pioneer of spiritual renaissance was born on 20th September 1911, in Anwalkheda, Agra District. He met his Guru, a great Himalayan Yogi, when he was only 15 years of age and scrupulously carried out his biddings throughout his life.

He took part in the struggle for independence as a volunteer, went to jail a number of times and embarked upon the task of social and moral upliftment through spiritual means in 1935 with the blessings of Mahatma Gandhi.

A sage, a visionary and a reformer, the Acharya initiated 100 points Yug Nirman Yojna, lived a disciplined life of devout austerity, visited the Himalayas several times and attained spiritual eminence.

The Gayatri Pariwar fraternity; Shantikunj Ashram - an academy for moral and spiritual awakening; Brahmavarchas Research Institute- which strives to synthesize science with spirituality and over 3000 social reform centers’ (Shakti-peeths) are his greatest contributions to the modem world.

He translated the entire Vedic Vangmaya and accopmplished a feat of writing more than 3000 books on all aspects of life.

The Acharya, Great devotee of Gayatri lived an ideal life for 80 years and voluntarily shed his physical sheath on Gayatri Jayanti, 2nd June 1990.

Preface

Association of man and woman has a very natural, important and useful purpose. This association has been going on from the creation of universe and shall go on till the end. In the normal course, this is willingly accepted by almost all adult men and women through the institution of marriage. However, in the recent past many distortions have gradually crept into the married life. As a result men and women do not find the desired satisfaction in each other's company in marriage now. Due to these distortions and dissatisfaction, people begin to find fault with the institution of marriage and often treat it as a burden or tend to violate its norm or break it. Many prefer keeping off from it because of fear of responsibilities or because of deluded religious conceptions.

Since the medieval times of cultural and social devolution a new line of thought began to be expressed everywhere by incompetent, self- centered and self-styled religious leaders. It was proclaimed that getting into the married life is a sign of weakness and inferiority, that households are doorways to hell, and that to don religious garbs renouncing all responsibilities of household is a road to heaven. This thought process began to be accepted everywhere in our country and as a result we see more than eight and half million men in religious garb moving around aimlessly.

This thought process is totally wrong. Assuredly, same spiritual progress can be attained while being in household or in sannyas, Married life is a very natural, simple and yet a perfect form of yoga. If all the regulations of married life are properly understood and dutifully followed, one can attain a very elevated spiritual state and earn one's right to heaven and enlightenment. This book expounds upon this very important concept. It is hoped that this book will be helpful in creating happiness, contentment and fulfillment in the married lives of the readers.

Testimonials
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
B. Werts, USA
