SRCM/Sahaj Marg Delinquent at UN DPI Program

SRCM/Sahaj Marg Delinquent at UN DPI Program

This is from material that was sent to abhyasis by the MISSION regarding their UN DPI membership...

NOTE: My comments are in a different font and a different color


PREAMBLE

UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS (UN)


Adopted and proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly resolution 217 A (III) of 10 December 1948

Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,

Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people, (criticism of the Mission has been met with "threats of legal action", Chari has called Hinduism "corrupt" and has disrespected Christianity in his speeches, and "fear" (intellectual terrorism) has been used by the Master to prevent abhyasis from leaving the Mission.)

From Speech on this site where he accuses other "religions" of using "fear and temptation":

"How to enforce a man's behavior in the pursuit of the goal was the next question and here fear came in all too handy -- the fear of punishment for swerving from the performance of religious rituals stipulated; the fear of punishment for not supporting the body of one's own religion in its continued existence; the fear of retribution for acts forbidden; and so on and so forth. Therefore, fear on one hand, and temptation on the other, would be a fair representation of religious activity, and religious control."

Chari states:

"For those who are well advanced and for those who are advancing rapidly, please remember that without Constant Remembrance your life is fraught with great risks, not because there are dangers outside, but the danger is here, you see, in the heart. It is better to be a non-spiritual materialist whose heart is full of rubbish, because he cannot take anymore. There is no vacuum in his heart; whereas for a spiritual advancing person, there is a potential risk in every exposure. Because if this vacuum connection can be broken even for a moment and disconnected and connected elsewhere –God help him!"
Constant Remembrance, Sahaj Marg Education Series, p.147 -Rev.Chariji)

Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law, (Chari on gay rights legislation: "it is a very blatant misuse of so-called privileges of the human being, fundamental rights, et cetera." see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sahaj_Marg or http://lessonsfromsahajmarg.blogspot.com/)

Whereas it is essential to promote the development of friendly relations between nations,
Chari in one of his speeches in Switzerland claims that SRCM is more democratic than the land of "Liberte, Fraternite, Egalite", (France). SRCM is not democratic by most standards. President, as Master, is self-appointed for life, in Chari's and Babuji's case, and the other "officers" are chosen and appointed by the Master. This is not "democracy". To teach the "invincibility" of India in his schools to "children" and comparing and praising the "better" qualities of his choice for his "arranged" marriages to "western" men and women, is not promoting friendly relations between nations, cultures and religions. It is another "division" not a "UNITY" of spirituality.

Whereas the peoples of the United Nations have in the Charter reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person and in the equal rights of men and women and have determined to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom, (According to Chari, women cannot be Masters as they are not "destructive" enough, and his arranged marriages, his statements on Homosexuality, and other religions has him delinquent on this statement of the UN preamble.)

Whereas Member States have pledged themselves to achieve, in co-operation with the United Nations, the promotion of universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms, (SRCM (tm) does not promote the equality rights of women and the fundamental rights of homosexuals, gays and lesbians. SRCM is delinquent here also.)

Whereas a common understanding of these rights and freedoms is of the greatest importance for the full realization of this pledge, (SRCM (tm) does not have an understanding of these rights and freedoms. SRCM (tm) is delinquent here)

Now,

Therefore THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY proclaims THIS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction. (SRCM is delinquent and does not address these rights and does not keep them in mind. SRCM (tm) is delinquent.





SHRI RAM CHANDRA MISSION AND THE UNITED NATIONS

Since 12 December 2005, the Shri Ram Chandra Mission is in working relationship with the United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI). This association in the sixtieth year of the founding of the Mission by Shri Ram Chandra of Shahjahanpur, India, in 1945 coincides with the sixtieth anniversary of the United Nations.

As an international non-governmental organization that works in support of the public good and fulfills the principles outlined in the United Nations Charter, Shri Ram Chandra Mission joins 1,558 non-governmental organizations worldwide that are currently associated with DPI. This association constitutes a commitment on the part of the Mission to disseminate information and raise public awareness about the purposes and activities of the United Nations and issues of global concern.

The United Nations recognizes the need for solidarity, goodwill and collective responsibility amongst the world’s nations and peoples in order to establish a lasting peace and sustainable development for all. To this end, it has been establishing partnerships with local, national and international, non-profit, service-oriented voluntary groups that share similar values.

Since 1945, Shri Ram Chandra Mission has been providing a spiritual and worldly platform for people in now more than ninety nations. Every day, in its ashrams and hundreds of centres, people come together to foster mutual love, trust and universal brotherhood transcending the boundaries of race, religion, nationality, colour, language, education, caste, sect, age and social standing.
The Mission achieves this unity in purpose by offering, for free, a simple and practical method of spiritual practice that unfolds the full potential within an individual who then assumes responsibility for personal growth and social change. Over the decades, guided by Revered Master, Shri Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari, the Mission has actively promoted human integration and invoked within the hearts of its practitioners the belief that all life is sacred.
Our involvement with the United Nations comes at a time when more individuals around the world are benefiting from the Mission’s services, and when the emblematic purpose of the United Nations to become a centre for harmonizing the actions of nations is ever more in need of support.
Recognizing the urgency for people with similar values to convene on a shared foundation, Shri Ram Chandra Mission embraces this association in the faith that, ultimately, selfless actions will govern the destiny of human beings.

(SRCM and its abhyasis do not practice "selfless actions" but are obsessed in the "goal" of Mission (growing the business) and their own personal goal of reaching the "Central Region" or the "brighter World" (heaven). SRCM (tm) and its preceptors, prefects and abhyasis are delinquent in their service to the community, friends, relatives and family. As per the Mission's Master, the relationship with the family and relatives is to be seen as "the inner bond should appear severed" , and "you will have no relatives" (New Year's address Jan. 1, 2001) and "refrain from entering into monetary transactions with relatives".
