It is a matter of great pleasure for me to present this English translation of Shri Guruji's biography, which was originally written in Marathi and later rendered into Hindi. A small biography of Pujaniya Shri Guruji had been brought out in 1956 on the occasion of his fifty-first birthday. Shri Guruji strongly felt it improper to publicize any personal particulars about him. Consequently, no full-fledged biography could be written during his lifetime.

The seven volume titled 'Shri Guruji Sarnagra Darshan' was the result of the extensive source material collected after he passed away. However, this work contains very little biographical information about Shri Guruji, and whatever little there is, is scattered over seven volumes. For anyone desirous of knowing about Shri Guruji's life and achievements, it is not easy to go through so many volumes. Shri C. P. Bhishikar had made a name for himself with his biography of Pujaniya Dr. Hedgewar, titled 'Keshav: Sangh Nirmata'.

With Pujaniya Sri Balasaheb Deoras' encouragement he had published a biography of Shri Guruji also in the year 1982. Later, adding fresh material to it, he brought out a full biography in Marathi. Had some friends in Nagpur not rendered it into Hindi it would have been a loss for Hindi readers. Further, some senior R.S.S. workers helped in making the Hindi version more authentic and comprehensive by adding and at a few places rectifying the matter in the original Marathi book.

It is this final version in Hindi that has now been rendered into English by Shri Sudhakar Raje, the well known 'Satiricus' whose untiring efforts have made this present publication available to the vast English reading readership in our country and abroad also.


Shri M.S. Golwalkar was a leader with a 'broad national outlook' who always thought on all India basis. Shri Golwalkar had faith in spiritualism and had great regard for other religious faiths. He did not have a narrow view of any religion. In fact, he had love for the Muslims and only wanted them to join the national mainstream.
== Acharva Vinoba Bhave

He held a respected position in national life by the force of his personality and the intensity of his conviction, even though many of us could not agree with him.
== Smt. Indira Gandhi

He was able to create a large following and enforce strict discipline among his followers. Anyone who succeeds in introduc-ing discipline among a large body of people does a national service.
== Shri Jagjivan Ram

Shri Guruji was the Swamy Vivekananda of the modern era, steadfastly dedicated to the building of a great and glorious Bharat.
== Shri L.K. Advani

Sri Guruji personified the ideal of simplicity and dedication to duty. He ardently believed in the reforms of Hindu culture and traditions and worked for it zealously.
== Shri Zail Singh

Though it would appear paradoxical, yet the fact remains that he was respected among thinking Muslims - not because of his philosophy but because of his courage of conviction, pure honesty, free from hypocrisy.
== "Radiance" a Muslim weekly

The presence of Shri Golwalkar - a great man of culture - was most essential during the hard times through which the country was passing.
== Jain Muni Sushil Kumar
