Acharya Tulsi - Institutions

Institutions

In 1948 Tulsi established the Parmarthik Shikshan Sanstha, a spiritual training centre for female aspirants who wanted to lead the Jain monastic lifestyle.

Tulsi developed the Saman Order around 1980 in an effort to spread the preachings of Jainism worldwide. This order follows the lifestyle of Sadhus and Sadhvis with two exceptions:

  1. They are granted permission to use means of transportation.
  2. They are allowed to take food which is prepared for them.

This order can be termed as the link between the normal households and the Jain monks and nun.

Famous quotes containing the word institutions:

    Unless we maintain correctional institutions of such character that they create respect for law and government instead of breeding resentment and a desire for revenge, we are meeting lawlessness with stupidity and making a travesty of justice.
    Mary B. Harris (1874–1957)

    Our institutions have a potent digestion, and may in time convert and assimilate to good all elements thrown in, however originally alien.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Have we no culture, no refinement,—but skill only to live coarsely and serve the Devil?—to acquire a little worldly wealth, or fame, or liberty, and make a false show with it, as if we were all husk and shell, with no tender and living kernel to us? Shall our institutions be like those chestnut burs which contain abortive nuts, perfect only to prick the fingers?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
