All living beings - including animals, flowers, birds, stones - have been given a form (body) by God, and this form has been given by God a duty to perform in this world.

It is everyone's duty to enhance the beauty and cleanliness of the ashram. It is part of your yoga.

Haidakhan is the most divine center of the universe. Everything should be wonderful here. Those here should be alert and attentive to entertain the guests well. The leaders will assign and delegate duties at the ashram.

By attention (to guests) and good manners this will be an example for all people. Set an ideal for the universe. Those who come should be delighted and carry this example with them throughout the world. By your example, a good impression will be made. The progress of Vishwa Mahadham is the progress of the world. When you work and learn here, you help the world. Make Vishwa Mahadham perfect.

All should think of the progress and perfection of this place. Baba blesses all who do their duty sincerely and with devotion. Do your duty lovingly.

The message to all of you is that the most important thing in the world is humanitarianism, or humanism. For this, we should sacrifice all our self-comfort. Do not think of yourself or your comfort, but think of others. This is the great humanitarian principle.

What does one mean by humanitarian rules and humanity? Babaji says one should not have any hatred towards anyone; one should try not to let other people down; one should try to help others; one should try to love all. In this new kingdom, everyone should be good. Babaji expects all this from you. And you should try to preach this to others - to those who are not here. Teach it to others; not only those around you, but in other countries, in the whole world - wherever you go, one should try to put it into practice. Babaji likes human beings. Humanitarian work should be done by all of us. Babaji wishes humans well. A person who follows this and who always keeps humanitarian rules in mind will be loved by everyone and shall survive all this destruction and shall remain happy. One should try to bring these humanitarian ideas to everybody who does not have them.

Babaji doesn't teach the Kriya Yoga which makes a disciple to leave all action. Whatever He is teaching, he is teaching practically.

March 25, 1982


In this kingdom, everyone should be good. Babaji expects all this from you. And you should try to preach this to others - to those who are not here. Teach it to others; not only those around you, but in other countries, in the whole world - wherever you go, one should try to put it into practice.

Humanity is making a grave mistake by misusing non-violence. Time and again I have said this to you. Work which I want to accomplish is to remove the misuse of non-violence. People have become lifeless and their blood has become like water. You should be brave and courageous - afraid of nothing. You should not be afraid of being burned by fire or drowned by water. If you are brave and courageous, nothing will harm you, not even the atomic bomb. You must be fearless for yourself and for all humanity.
June 21, 1982

Prabhu's mood now opposes non-violence. Non-violence is now contaminating the world. Non-violence of itself should be removed from the world. Culprits must be punished. For security we must employ strength. Babaji wants some violent people so that others may grow in wisdom and discrimination and learn to make decisions.
April 4, 1982

I want to make the people who have come here true citizens. I don't want this non-violence. The people preach non-violence, but instead they make water out of their blood. I want to wake up the sense of true humanity. With great difficulty you get this human body. I want brave and courageous people. A man must have great courage. So many atrocities are done, and people let them happen in the name of non-violence. Non-violence is not for this. I do not want people to be blind when they have two eyes in their heads.
April 6, 1982

I want to see the misuse of non-violence eliminated. Man's powers of discrimination and his very blood have become thin from pursuing false doctrines. Those who would misuse appeasement defeat the purpose of life and become like mindless donkeys carrying loads on their backs.

He is not preaching any new religion. He has come to preach the religion which occurred at the time of Creation, and that is the Sanatan Dharma- the Eternal Religion. He has come to preach the Sanatan Dharma only.
March, 25, 1982

I have come to guide humanity to a higher path. I do not belong to any particular religion, but respect all religions. I seek the elevation of all mankind. The higher self in people must be developed and enthrallment with the lower nature destroyed.
June 21, 1982

In any town there is always a central place; all roads in the town or from out of town lead to that central place. Similarly, all religions lead to one point, and that is God Himself, and therefore following any religion you will ultimately reach God.

June 21, 1982

Shri Babaji teaches us about the unity of creation. We are all made from the five elements; we are all of one spirit. In all respects, we are one humanity, one human family. Limitations arise from political beliefs and world leaders who mold thinking to time, place and culture, thereby creating differences and separateness. The birthright of all mankind is to love and follow God. Limitations arise from erroneous human beliefs. Shri Babaji has appeared to illumine the minds and hearts of mankind, so that unity and harmony may be known to all.
