Founder of Arya Samaj was Swami Dayanand Saraswati (Mulshankar) 1824-83 and he was born in the old Morvi state in Gujarat in a brahmin family. The first Arya Samaj unit was formally set up by him at Bombay in 1875 and later the headquarters of the Samaj were established at Lahore. Swami Dayanand’s views were published in his famous work, Satyarth Prakash (The True Exposition). Dayanand’s vision of India included a classless and casteless society, a united India (religiously, socially and nationally), and an India free from foreign rule, with Aryan religion being the common religion of all. He took inspiration from the Vedas and considered them to be “India’s Rock of Ages”, the infallible and the true original seed of Hinduism. He gave the slogan “Back to the Vedas”.
