By India Post, Government of India - [1], GODL-India,

Arya Samaj, started by Swami Dayanand Saraswati on April 10, 1875, in Mumbai, is a social reform movement. In contrast to some false impressions, it is not religious beliefs or a new sect in the Hindu religion. Swami Dayanand united a variety of concerned members of the culture to remove the ills common within the Hindu Culture in the 19th century.

The main goal of the Arya Samaj is to remove a Lack of knowledge (Agyan), Indigence, or Hardship (Abhav) and also Oppression (Anayay) from this planet. This mission is sanctified in the ten Niyams or Principles. The 4 Vedas, Rig-Veda, Yajur Veda, Sam Veda, and Atharva Veda, are the source of Advice. Arya Samaj relies on one God, understood by name Om, who is Omnipresent, Omnipotent, Omniscient, Source of all Intelligence as well as Happiness, Merciful and Righteous. Arya Samaj does not believe in Idol prayer.

One of the main objectives of the Arya Samaj has been education and learning. Arya Samaj is among the biggest providers of education in India, from pre-school to graduate degree. Arya Samaj particularly stresses the education of women. As Indians relocated away from the borders of India to other lands, several lugged with them the teachings of Arya Samaj. They established branches of Arya Samaj in their adopted countries to continue the great, to inform their offspring regarding the abundant history, cultural heritage as well as traditions of India, as well as to influence them to keep the beliefs and also techniques of Arya Samaj.
