Council for Promotion of human Values
We endeavor to actively involve the leading classes of our society in promoting the noble human values for reforming the general masses to uphold human dignity and to effectively arrest the alarming up rise of human wickedness.
MOTTO: 1.To create spiritual awareness in the society for universal welfare
2. To root out ignorance and misconceptions to prevent social degradations
3. To provide a right direction to the misguided and frustrated human lives
IDEOLOGY: To make nobility and spirituality – a way of life. Inspiring self discipline by adopting the noble qualities like dedication, austerity, tolerance, generosity, kindness, self introspection, service and devotion as a way of practical life. Creating social awareness for achieving material affluence, academic excellence and above all spiritual wisdom by the help of constant holy association. Promoting divine environment through devotional culture to establish friendly and peaceful co-existence and to reach the final goal of self-realization and God realization.
ERADICATING THE NEGATIVE TRENDS : When nobleness is promoted under the spiritual guidance of the scriptures like Gita, Bhagavatam, Upanishads and other holy texts, the inhuman tendencies consequently get eradicated from the human hearts, just as darkness is dispelled by the presence of light. The devotional performance ‘Sadhana Bhakti’ at the very beginning roots out the nescience or self forgetfulness from the human hearts and the eight fold pure qualities of the individual spirit get manifested there. The threefold suffering of the jivas is known as the sin, the seed of the sin and the nescience. Devotional process Bhakti eradicates all these negative factors by imparting the knowledge of relationship with God, known as Sambandha Jnana. The real identification of the individual Jiva is that he is an eternal servant of the Supreme Lord. Any other recognition of jivas is nothing but misidentification. Devotional performances totally purify the human heart and bestow all auspiciousness. No other process in this world can eradicate the root of the sin.
The process of devotion should be initiated from the very tender age of childhood to prevent the cropping up of evil tendencies. The one who is bent upon harming others should thoroughly understand that, he has already got himself ruined before harming others. This is just like a matchstick that burns itself before burning others. Since all the living beings are the children of the same Universal father, all should live in amity like brothers and sisters. Those who desire for their own welfare should abstain from all types of sins and crimes. The noble qualities like penance, purity, compassion and truthfulness are the four pillars of righteousness. The fourfold evil habits such as intoxication, illicit company, butchery and gambling result in spreading unrighteousness by enhancing the demerits like pride, impurity, cruelty and falsehood. These should be avoided by one and all. Especially the leaders and the rulers of the country should be honest and righteous. The criminal act of even a single person may trigger off chain reaction to create social disturbances. Therefore, the parents, the teachers and the rulers of the country should be ever vigilant to see that even, a single child of the world is not allowed to become anti-social or anti-national. Everyone should sincerely serve God and serve the motherland.
OUR REQUEST : Among millions of animal species, the human birth is the most precious one. All the right thinking people should see that such a valuable gift of God is not misused in worthless pursuits. One should achieve success by adhering to righteous life and also should strive for other’s welfare. Kindly uphold human values, protect righteousness, adopt right path, adhere to realism and spread the message of divine wisdom by associating with holy persons. So also, suppress brutality, avoid evil path, root out ignorance, reject atheism, discard fanaticism, avoid materialism and keep away from evil company.
For further information guidance and acquaintance, the readers may kindly visit our organization and get their queries satisfied as well as get the doubts dispelled.
