Spiritually Enlightened Over the Years
Dankunvari son of Mata Devi and Pt. Roopkishore Sharma, Shriram Sharma showed his love for the welfare of the masses and the will to sacrifice from his early years.
He was born on 20th September 1911, in Anwalkhera district, Agra. Despite strong opposition from family members, he took over a Dalit woman who suffered from leprosy.
Panditji cared for her, offered her food and shelter in a clean environment. He arranged for a doctor to give him the best possible treatment at that time.
When he was only 15 years old, his guru Sarveshwaranandji visited him and gave him certain instructions. Panditji followed each word and recited 2.4 million times, which are 24 mahapurashcaranas of Gayatri Mantra for every 24 years.
Shriram Sharma As a Freedom Fighter
Shriram Sharma began taking part in the struggle for freedom in India at the age of 12 years. He founded the group of young children called Baal Sena, who protested against the colonial government and provided assistance to victims of cruel government policies.
His family was concerned about his safety and tried to prevent him from doing these activities. He fled the house and arrived in Agra, where he became a volunteer of the Indian National Congress.
Seeing his unwavering dedication to the liberation of foreign domination, he received the nickname “Matta” (someone who is intoxicated with an idea in his case, the freedom of India).
Shriram Sharma skipped the prohibition orders that were passed after the execution of Bhagat Singh in April 1931 and was arrested and released. He showed his implacability when he organized a procession of flags brutally repressed by the police.
He arrived in Calcutta to participate in the Rashtriya Adhiveshan of the Indian National Congress in 1933.
In 1953, Shriram Sharma founded the Gayatri Tapobhumi in Mathura and 1008 Kundi Yagya was played in 1958. This yagya has paved the way for Yug Nirman Yojna which aims to bring about cultural, moral, intellectual and spiritual reforms for the individual.
His Achievements and Final Journey to the Heaven

It sheds light on what the future holds for this world and the message for the dawn of the 21st century. He went on his trip to heaven on June 2, 1990.
To honor his unprecedented contribution to Indian society, the Indian government launched a postage stamp.
After his disappearance, his soul mate Mata Bhagwati Devi pursued his work. He provided guidance for the Ashwamedha Yagya series and helped spread the mission around the world.
