Nine Point Code of Conduct

“It is the Code of Conduct which is responsible for the Organisation moving forward, growing from strength to strength. The office bearers should exercise maximum care to see that the Code of Conduct is adhered to and guide others also in the right path. There should be no scramble for power or position. What matters is the purity, intensity of devotion and the spirit of self-sacrifice.”

– Baba
