Acharyasri Tulsi was a great philosopher, thinker and laureate. His works in hindi, sanksrit and Rajasthani have enriched the world of literature to a great extent. On the 18 th day of February 1994, he scripted history by voluntarily retiring from his responsibility as the Acharya and bringing his predecessor Yuvacharyasri Mahapragya. Terapanth society honoured him with the title GANADHIPATI, and his period of guidance is considered as the golden period of Terapanth.
