1. A REDEDICATION TO SERVICE
By the benevolent grace of our Rev. Master, spiritual aspirants from all parts of the world are discovering and practising Sahaj Marg. Consequently, the Mission has grown by leaps and bounds over the last thirty years. The organization supporting this subtle spiritual edifice has to be continually updated to keep up with this rapid growth. Keeping this in mind, Rev. Master has launched an initiative to amend the organisational framework of the Mission, so that it may continue to serve effectively and unobtrusively, while preserving the pristine purity of the Sahaj Marg teaching and practice.

All of us who participated in this unique event rededicate ourselves whole-heartedly and enthusiastically to serve Him in His holy mission and pray that, in doing so, we may secure a permanent place in His heart..
