Once in a lifetime a man like Mahatma Gandhi is born. Once in a lifetime he find a Guru like Shrimad Rajchandraji.

2017 marks the 150th birth anniversary of the great Indian saint, poet-philosopher, and spiritual luminary – Shrimad Rajchandraji (1867 – 2017.) Hailed as the spiritual guide of Mahatma Gandhi, Shrimad Rajchandraji had a tremendous and formative influence on the Father of the Nation that he is said to have said “Such was the man who captivated my heart in religious matters as no other man ever has till now.”

Celebrations in honour of Rajchandraji were launched from the Red Fort by Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi who in his uplifting speech on India’s 70th Independence Day said, “The country is celebrating the 150th birth anniversary of Shrimad Rajchandraji, Mahatma Gandhiji’s Guru. In one of His letters to Gandhiji, Shrimadji writes … the principle of non-violence has existed ever since the existence of violence. What is important is which one do we utilize for the welfare of mankind.”

His teachings have been translated into a play Yugpurush and has mesmerised an audience of over 4000 people. Over 50 shows have been booked all over Mumbai till 31 December and people are queuing up in large numbers.

This happens once in a lifetime.
