Realizing the potential of inspiring literature and its relevance in the present era of intellectual evolution, he had chosen writing as the principal mode towards uprooting the evil tendencies and blind faith from people's minds and arousing the indwelling wisdom, strength and spiritual bliss.
He initiated the unique movement of Vichar Kranti with the very first issue of “Akhand Jyoti” in 1939. The first book he wrote was “ Mein Kya Hun?”, an Upanishad level work on the knowledge of Real-self.
He wrote about 3000 enlightening books in Hindi on almost all topics concerning human life.His writings carry the force of his enlightened inner self and have the power to let his thoughts reach deep into the minds and hearts of the readers. Each of his books is a milestone, a guiding pillar in the corresponding discipline of knowledge. His eloquence, logical arguments, authentic references, illustrations and experiences and comprehensive discussions intimately engaging the readers’ psychology are indeed remarkable. Perhaps this is the reason why his literature has been well received by people from all walks of life, possessing different intellectual and psychological backgrounds. His literature also serves as an effective means of collective enlightenment.
Be that the revelation of the esoteric aspects of the subtle science of Kundalini Yoga and Shaktipata, ….etc; research directions on brain and consciousness…etc, discussions on child psychology and family institutions etc; or, information on healthy food and modes of cheerfulness in routine life…, etc, Acharyaji's spontaneity and lucidity make every topic interesting and comprehensible.
There is no place for illusion or misconception in his perspicuous analysis and guidance. The spiritual charge and integrity of his character, consonance of his words with his deeds and purity of his sentiments add to the motivating power of his pen.
The complete works of Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharyaji has been published in 70 volumes (with 38 more are in pipeline).
Propagation of Vedic Vangmaya in New Light
Apart from all his original writings, Acharyashri has translated the entire Vedic Vangmaya (4 Vedas, 108 Upanishads, 18 Puranas etc) in Hindi elucidating the tradition, style, universality and history of Vedic Literature. This invaluable contribution to the world of knowledge and human culture was highly acclaimed and appreciated by savants and saints like Dr. S. Radhakrishana and Acharya Vinoba Bhave; the distinguished title of “Vedmurti” was conferred upon him in its recognition.
In the present circumstances, when there is great dearth of good and inspiring literature, the founder of Shantikunj had, about twenty-five years back, written commentaries on four Vedas, eighteen Puranas, 108 Upnishads, six Darshans, twenty-four Gitas, Aranyaks, Brahmanas etc. and had made them easily available to all at modest prices. Appropriate literature, with a view to providing practical solutions to the forbidding problems of the present day life, is also being continuously written and it has influenced the hearts and minds of millions of people. The series of Pragya Puranas are a novel creation in which the philosophy of Upnishads has been explained in simple, easily understandable style through the medium of tales and stories.
