Swami Satyabhakta (Hindi:स्वामी सत्यभक्त) (born as Darbarilal; 10 November 1899 – 10 December 1998) was a scholar, philosopher, reformer and the founder of Satya Samaj.[1]

Early life[edit]

Born Mulchanda at Shahpur, Sagar, he moved to Damoh to his aunt's house after the death of his mother at age 4, where he was renamed Darbarilal. He met Ganeshprasad Varni at Damoh and influenced by him, he joined the pathshala established by Varniji at Sagar. At age 19, he graduated with the title Nyayatirth and became a teacher at Sdyavad Vdyalaya at Varanasi for a year. He then moved to Seoni and then Indore, where he developed his rationalistic principles.

In 1923, he became a reformer.[2] He lived in Bombay during 1926-1936, where he edited Jain Jagat and Jain Prakash. He started writing a series of articles that were later compiled into Jain Dharma Samiksha.[3] He eventually moved to Wardha in 1936 and established his Ashrama there.

He was a prolific author. His writings include Buddhahrdayamu,[4] Jain Dharm Mimansa,[5] Mahavira ka Antsthal,[6] Manav Bhasha,[7] Meri Africa yatra,[8] Anmol Patra[9] etc. Swamiji worked hard to evolve in 1945-46 the new language which swamiji called Manavbhasa of which grammar is complete and having no exceptions and very simple and can be learn in a month. “Aditi” of Sri Aurobindo Ashram wrote four pages about Manavbhasha. Swamiji compare Manavbhasha with Esperanto another language by Zamenhof a Polish Eye Surgen in 1887 and a book named Esperanto verses Manavbhasha was published in 1971.
