Shrimad Rajchandraji is the epitome of an intense and incessant pursuit of spirituality. Shrimadji was born
on the auspicious day of Kartik Purnima on 9th November, 1867 in Vavania, Gujarat. A perfect blend of
pure knowledge, selfless devotion, and complete detachment, Shrimadji attained self-realisation at the
age of 23. He spent months in seclusion, absorbed in the ecstasy of the Self. His compassion for the world
flowed in the form of Shri Atmasiddhi Shastra, a masterpiece in philosophical literature. On Chaitra Vad
Pancham, 9th April 1901, at the age of 33, Shrimadji left His mortal body in Rajkot. His preachings have
been published in an invaluable volume 'Shrimad Rajchandra', which continues to quench the thirst of true
seekers. Through ashrams, temples, and institutions dedicated to Shrimadji around the world, lakhs of
devotees are benefiting from His teachings and progressing on the spiritual path.
