Whoever violates the principles of morality (Yama-Niyama) should not get the opportunity of representing the people. If power is given to an incompetent person, it will be equivalent to leading society astray in cold blood.
In regard to intellect, living beings may be divided into two main groups – those who want to share their wisdom, and those who do not want to. The more a group favours the sharing of wisdom, the more is their social instinct; and those who do not, their collective social mind cannot develop in […]
Sadvipras are those whose efforts are directed towards the attainment of Bliss. They are strong in morality and always ready to wage war against immoral activities. Those who strictly adhere to the principles of morality, are ensconced in sacrificing service (Tapah) and are ready to wage war against immoralists are Sadvipras. Only those sadvipras are […]
Building anything on humanistic lines requires a foundation of real love and affection for humanity. A truly benevolent society will never come into being under the leadership of those who are solely concerned with profit and loss. Where love is paramount, the question of personal loss or gain does not arise. The basic ingredient for […]
The one who exploits the masses is also a person; this must never be lost sight of even for a moment. The human family is a conglomerate of different elements of the human race. Reforming and guarding against human frailties with a liberal and tolerant outlook, we have to proceed together towards the path of […]
The poverty and misery of people in any country are the sins of the leaders. True leaders should always be vigilant and think how to work best for the human society; they must be ever cautious that under their guidance the people are not led to darkness, death and immorality.
Your duty is threefold. Your first duty is to observe morality and do intuitional practices. Without this you cannot have mental determination. Your next duty is to unite the moralists of the world, otherwise righteousness (dharma) will not endure. This will be your real duty. You will become great by this, for ideation of the […]
Ours is the subjective approach and an objective adjustment – the happy blending between the objective world and subjective goal. While moving towards the subjective goal, you must maintain adjustment with the objective world. There is no other alternative. When the human society is ensconced in this supreme idea, in the very near future it […]
To satisfy their hunger, the haves mis-utilise their physical and intellectual wealth and force the have-nots to become slaves and sinners to try to appease their own hunger. In the background there is a big exploiter; in the front, his agents are half-naked children. This is the cause of the downfall of society.
Society needs an impetus for life, vigour and progress and for this Ananda Marga advocates the “Progressive Utilisation Theory” (PROUT) which calls for progressive utilisation of all factors of the universe. Those who support these principles may be called Proutists.
Let everyone enjoy as much as they like on the subtle mental plane. Let everyone possess as much mental and spiritual wealth as possible. But individual hoarding of mundane resources and wealth must be stopped, even by force if necessary. In reality both physical and mental cravings are born of mental hunger. It is certainly […]
In our Marga (our way, or path) humanity as a whole is considered as one family belonging to the race of human race. In such a society, injustice due either to economic background, sex or racial considerations will be unknown.
Those who are at the helm of society are absorbed in strife and suspicion, or in reckoning their loss and profit. They have no desire to think of humanity. There is no room for mercy, sympathy or fellow-feeling. All are self-centred.
At present the worth of life is ascertained with an eye to money. One who possesses wealth commands respect and passes for a noble person. Nowadays if you have no money you cannot expect to get honour. The poor people belonging to all other classes have to woo the moneyed people just for the sake […]
There should be one universal legal and criminal code for the universal humanity. It is not at all desirable that there be different laws for different people, different countries, different communities. All laugh in happiness, cry in sorrow, beat their breasts in mourning. Why must we separate human from human with a thousand and one […]
Lack of unity among the members of society because of too much self-interest in the individual members, formation of sects for economic advantages, lack of understanding of others, not only brings the downfall of society but also will wipe it completely from the face of the earth. Instances of so many sects and empires disappearing […]
The rich have purchased all the brains with their money. They have bidden farewell to all their human values and at the same time they are busy playing a chess game with the lives of the other members of society. Bereft of everything, the people toil around the clock to live from hand to mouth.
Society is like a company of pedestrians going on a pilgrimage. Suppose one among them is attacked by cholera, do the rest go on their way, leaving him behind? No, they cannot. Rather, they break their journey at the place for a day or two, relieve him from the disease and help him to acquire […]
The entire humanity of this universe constitutes one singular people.
Every person cries out in pain, everyone feels pleasure when there are occasions of joy and happiness. Maybe in different geographical, cultural, social and other environments, the lifestyle of different human groups may vary; maybe, a few special psychic traits in those groups may assert themselves. But fundamentally, their mental existences flow along the same […]
