Any day when Aarati is being done by people from a certain country, all men and women of that country should participate in it. When a German does Aarati, all Germans must take part in it; when Swiss people do Aarati, all the Swiss should take part in it. Likewise with the French, Italians, Americans, etc. This is a new universal law, given for Haidakhan Vishwa Mahadham, since the new code for the universal kingdom will start from Haidakhan. This law will be universal. This is not for one country but for all the world. "Dhara 44" -Code No. 44 -is the name of this law, and a person can be punished if he breaks this law. All of you must obey the law. This is a universal law.

You are responsible for the structure.

Each one of you must vow today to sacrifice everything to obtain oneness with yourself. Be rid of attachment in your heart and be ready for the sake of righteousness to jump into the flames and water of life. Why do you attach your minds to the transitory things in this world?
