Tete-a-tete Acharya Swami Kishorji Vyas

  • An ardent devotee of Sant Dnyaneshwar, sedates, pleasant, endearing, is Acharya Swami Kishorji Vyas. A radiant countenance, a benign smile and a friendly disposition lends to his persona a magnetic pull. There is nothing intimidating or formidable about him. His affable demeanor could melt even the cruelest of hearts.
  • Honestly speaking I was a bit hesitant to meet him. For the impression that I bore in mind of men of such stature was quite the contrary. But on meeting him I realized how wrong I was. As we got talking I barely realized that how time flew by!
  • Born in 1949 into a devout family of preachers, it was but natural for Acharya Vyas to take to this path. Experiencing a strong pull to this calling Acharya Vyas went on to graduate in comparative philosophy from the Tattvajnan Vidyapeeth under the guidance of His Holiness Pandurang - Shastri Athavale of the Swadhyayan Pariwar. Not quite satisfied with the knowledge that he gained, Acharya Vyas went to Varanasi where he studied in detail the voluminous texts of ancient Indian scriptures (Vedas, Upanishads..et) - hence completing his Aeharyn degree.
  • Besotted by the wealth of knowledge contained in the ancient Indian texts, Acharya Vyas took it upon him to dissipate that knowledge to the people. By doing so he wishes to illuminate the dark recesses of our minds with the light of love, hence cleanse us of all negative thoughts and feelings. Expounding the crux of Indian thought Acharya Vyas said that it showed us the way to live life to the fullest, by achieving a balance in everything we do. Quoting a few lines from the scriptures and later explaining them he said that excess work on one hand and not working at all, gorging on food on one hand and starving on the other, sleeping too much or not sleeping at all robs you of your peace of mind, leaving you restless and stressed. Reiterating and pointing out the fact that the pearls of wisdom enshrined in cur scriptures transcend all barriers of time and that they shall always retain their relevance. Acharya Vyas said they stress on self discipline and self restraint-values which in the present times are on the decline, but need to be rekindled once again.
  • As our conversation meandered through the different phases of history and its impact on religion, I could not help but ask him a question that since quite some time had been haunting me and that was why (some) westerners hold the multilimbed idols of Indians deities in contempt. To that Acharya Vyas replied that, "God would not be God if lie Were not able to assume the multifarious fonn.s that His devotees visualise Him in. Omnipotent us lie is, He. Will take any form and bestow upon you His grace." Marveling at his sagacity, I dared to ask him another question. And that was, that as per the televised versions of Ramayana and Mahabbarata the deities are shown to have possessed extraordinary powers. Did they really possess those powers? A smiling Acharya Vyas replied 'Those are metaphors that express the power of the deity." He said at all...
  • It is not without reason that Acharyti Vyas has been awarded the Mahaswami Natsional Eminence award
