Swami Sahajand Saraswati
We rarely see ascetics who pursue spirituality participate in political and social reform. Sahajanandji was one of those rare freedom fighters.

Sahajanandji is a member of the A.I.C.C and the B.I.C.C. No figure in the Kisan movement has a wider circle of admirers than him. Rarely as a Sanyasi (ascetic) so closely identified himself with a political movement as he has done. He is one of the most lovable and human of men. As a patriot he is revealed in his life-long work to the Congress. His faith in his political creed is unbending.

In the Kisan movement there may be more brilliant intellects, more striking masters of debate but there is no man who is more gifted with the various qualities of mass leadership.
