one of the leaders of the Bharatiya Jana Sangh, the forerunner of the present day Bharatiya Janata Party.
Upadhyaya conceived the political philosophy Integral Humanism. The philosophy of Integral Humanism advocates the simultaneous and integrated program of the body, mind and intellect and soul of each human being.
