History and Achievements

On the completion of the his 24 years of sadhana , Pandit Sriram Sharma Acharya established Gayatri Tapobhumi at Mathura (India) in 1953. He organised a grand Gayatri Yajna in 1958, which served as a base to launch the Yug Nirman Yojna, a global movement for moral, cultural, intellectual and spiritual refinement and reconstruction.
The objectives of this move­ment are to reform the individ­ual, the family and social values of mankind and to change the current ideologies and concepts of morality and social structure for a better tomorrow.

Through various activities at Mathura, including the perfor­mance of yajnas on large scale, Acharyaji gathered a team of dedicated men and women . 
Thus the organisation called “ Gayatri Pariwar” was born.

The period 1971-1990 wit­nessed remarkable multifac­eted accomplishments of Acharyaji's life . He climbed the arduous and mystic heights of the Himalaya s several times and stayed there for specific sadhnas as per the guidance of his guru . In 1971 he instituted the mission 's headquarters at Shantikunj (Haridwar, India) as an academy for moral and spiritual awakening and training . Here he began revival of ancient spiritual disciplines that were the hallmarks of Indian Culture .
