Swami Virjanand Ji
Most of what can be said in this short presentation has already been said about guru Virjanad Ji when it relates to Swami Ji and his interaction with him. The most obvious attributes of his life was that he was blind yet still very bright, and that the guru of Swami Dayanand Saraswati, he was just skin and bones. He was born in 1778 in a village near Jallandhar in a Brahmin family. He became blind at the age of 5 yrs. due to small pox. His parents died at the age of 12. Since his brother did not treat him well, he left home and traveled and lived in different places in different capacities till he finally settled in Mathura. He died in 1868 at the age of 90.
