Abstract:
Vinayak Narahari Bhave, popularly known as 'Acharya Vinoba Bhave' was a saint, moral tribune, a man of God and solace to millions of Indians. Vinoba Bhave describes 'Sarvoday' (Universal wellbeing) as the best religion. In reality, all the religions of the World propose wellbeing, prosperity and happiness of all. Thus 'Sarvodaya' incorporates all the religions of the World. Sarvodaya Movement means a way to make an ideal society with truth, love and nonviolence. The concept of Sarvodaya was first advocated by Gandhiji as the title of his Gujrati translation of John Ruskin's "Unto this Last". Today, Sarvodaya has become a synonym for Gandhian thought. The literary meaning of Sarvodaya is the welfare of all. Sarvodaya is an ideal as well as a movement to uplift all. It is considered as an Indian solution to World problems, Gandhian panacea for socio-economic evils.
As the ardent follower of Gandhi, Vinoba Bhave started to practice Sarvodaya in action for making a Sarvodaya Society in India. To make the Indian Nation based on equality, justice and freedom for all, Vinoba launched Bhoodan, Gramdan, Sampattidan Movements to help landless poor and JP left Socialist Party to support Vinoba's movement in 1954. It is said that take the name of Vinoba and all the rest is said about Sarvodaya. Samya-yoga is another name for Sarvodaya has come to Vinoba profoundly. His breaths and lives were in the spirit of Samyayoga to bring a progressive change in society. In the Post-Independence India Vinoba applied Sarvodaya to reconstruct India for the progress of all, especially for the downtrodden people.
This study will focus on the contributions of Vinoba for the Sarvodaya Movement after M.K Gandhi to establish People's Socialism against power politics. Sarvodaya's idea was an active step to bring a positive social change in India.
