Dharma Bharathi Mission (DBM)

Dharma Bharathi Mission (DBM) is a socio-spiritual organisation for nation-building . It was founded in 2003 by Acharya Sachidananda Bharathi. DBM is responsible to provide moral and spiritual leadership to the Second Freedom Struggle for a hunger-free, caste-free and corruption-free India. This Second Freedom Struggle of India was initiated on 30th January 2008 from Gandhi Mandapam, Kanyakumari, in the concluding prayer meeting of the year-long ‘Desh Vandana-2007’ undertaken by Swami Sachidananda Bharathi.


DBM has been functioning under the able leadership of Sri. Paramjeet Singh, IRS who has been serving as its National President ever since its re-dedication to God at Kanyakumari on 30th Jan 2008 as the ‘core organisation’ for and within the Second Freedom Struggle of India.
Sri. Paramjeet Singh, IRS is now nominated by Swamiji as a National President of DBM for life (Till the age of 65 years).           

 30th Jan 2008 is now adopted as the formal ‘Foundation Day’ of DBM and the Second Freedom Struggle of India. An ‘Annual National Convention’ (ANC) is being organized by the National Coordination Council of DBM every year on 29-31 January to celebrate this ‘Foundation Day’ of DBM and to evaluate and reorient the Second Freedom Struggle of India.
          

The first ANC was held at Sevagram Ashram, Wardha on 29-31 Jan 2009. The Second ANC was held on 29-31 Jan 2010 at Mumbai, and the third at Nagpur. The 4th, ANC was held once again at Sevagram Ashram, Wardha and The 7th ANC will be held at Shantivanam Ashram Rama village, Nagpur on 30th and 31st Jan - 2015.
          

The fifth ANC was also held at Sevagram Ashram, Wardha. The most important Campaign within the Second Freedom Struggle of India termed 'Enlightened National Poltics' (ENP) was initiated on 30th Jnauray 2013 during this 5th ANC.

The sixth ANC was also held at Sevagram Ashram, Wardha on 1st February 2014 and 7th ANC will be held on Shantivanam Ashram, Rama village, Nagpur on 30th and 31st January 2015

 

'Dharma Bharathi Ashram' at Mulanthuruthy near Kochi is the spiritual home for members of DBM. Even though Sadguru Jesus Christ is honoured as the Power and Spirit of the Ashram, Dharma Bharathi Ashram is not part of any Church or religion. The Ashramites respect all religions and its’ distinct traditions. The Logo of DBM represents our three fold understanding of God and Truth.
        

A DBM National Center is being established at Shativanam Ashram in Rama Village near Nagpur. Future ANCs will be held in this Ashram.
 

DBM functions as a network of autonomous local Units with minimum of 11 members.       

 

 DBM has been active in Mumbai, Lucknow, Kerala and Nagpur. Out of these 4 Local Units of DBM, the Mumbai Unit has been doing very well under the direct guidance and leadership of Sri. Paramjeet Singh. DBM-Mumbai has already won two prestigious awards for dedicated and meritorious service in the NGO sector.
            

DBM is envisioned to have 5 ‘Wings’ as part of its ‘family tree’. These five Wings will be akin to the ‘five fingers’ of DBM which is called by destiny and history to function as a ‘Divine Hand’ acting in the history of India for the regeneration and reconstruction of this ancient land of religions. The 5 envisioned Wings are Teachers’ Wing (‘Guru Krupa’) functioning as the thumb, Women's Wing ('Mathru Shakti') functioning as the index finger, Youth Wing ('Yuva Shakti') functioning as the middle finger, Farmers' Wing ('Kisan Shakti') functioning as the fourth finger, and Students' Wing ( 'Dharma Jyothi') functioning as the little finger.
              

DBM is placed under the legal ownership of Navasrushti International Trust. It functions according to its Manual approved by NIT and published by ‘Navasrushti Publications’. The DBM Manual is being revised from time to time by the National Coordination Council of DBM based on new experiences and insights that are being gained in its evolutionary growth. This is being done under the advice and guidance of the Acharya-guru of DBM.

 

DBM Manual – 2012 published during the 4th Annual National Convention held at Sevagram, Wardha, on 29-31 Jan 2012 is in force now. The DBM Manual is a priced document. Hence, in addition to its Manual, DBM also has a brochure that gives its vision, mission and programmes in brief for free distribution to interested people.
            

Do Not Exist. Live!
 

            

We feel that the span of life is short. We make it still shorter by waste of time. The greatness of one's life depends not on the years but on the positive impact one leaves on the minds of one’s generation. The immortals live after their death through their work. So it is not the years that count, it is what we do with them that matters. Doing good needs sacrifice. It calls us to ‘give till it hurts’.
            

The great men and women lived a full life. They did not squander time. The Divine compensates our mediocrity with more number of years – giving us more chances to serve humankind. So one has a choice; of simply ‘existing’ in this world or of ‘living’, in the real sense of the word. But how do we do this?
            

If we plan to teach moral values to our children, we in our own lives need to be role models. To influence and inspire people setting an example is not only necessary but it is THE ONLY WAY!

‘Begin with self, Begin today & Begin small’

In his recent book titled ‘Honest Truth About Dishonesty’ the author Dan Ariely has explored revealing unexpected and astonishing traits that run through modern humankind, daring to ask the big questions: What makes us cheat? How and why do we rationalise deception of ourselves and other people, and make ourselves ‘wishfully blind' to the blindingly obvious? How a whole company can turn a blind eye to evident misdemeanors within their ranks? Whether people are born dishonest? Whether we can really be successful by being totally, brutally honest?

Let us just see one example from his book. He gave tough questions to a bunch of seemingly highly respected people from different walks of life and after they completed the same, he asked them to destroy the answer sheets. He then asked them to state how many they had answered. It was found that almost all inflated the answer! They were not aware of the fact that hidden cameras were recording everything.

So, the question is how moral are we when nobody is looking! If we are not, then how do we expect morality from others! The author further shows that how many of these, when caught, try to rationalise by saying, ‘stealing a needle is not the same as stealing an elephant!’. Can anybody teach morals to such persons? Or, can they teach anything to anybody? Learning, like charity, has to begin with and from one’s own self. As Gautama Buddha said – ‘Ap divo bhava’ – everybody has to be his own candle. Be the change you want to see. This is why we have chosen ‘begin with self, begin today and begin small’ as the basic mission methodology of DBM.

Further, to do something worthwhile in life one must know that it is easier to criticize but difficult to improve. There is this famous story of the painter who painted a superb painting and then placed it on the road with a request to the patrons to point out mistakes or make suggestions for improvement, if any. Soon he was flooded with hundreds of suggestions. He was quite perturbed and felt very inadequate.

But his friend had an idea. On his prodding the painter again painted a new painting and placed it there with a request to patrons to themselves correct / paint the mistakes if any. This time there were hardly any suggestions!

Great people concentrate on work and not in criticizing others. Let all of us, the members of DBM, try to emulate their example.

We have to leave behind the ‘Chalta hai, Hota hai’ attitude! In India we celebrate mediocrity. People are happy with and accept work half done. Those who try to do their jobs well are ridiculed as fastidious and as perfectionists! Should we accept this? It is because we accept this in our country that our cities, villages and whole society are in bad shape. Let us resolve to be different. Once we take up any task, let us do it with our whole heart and soul! Let us be role models in doing our work sincerely.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then is not an act, but a habit” – said Aristotle

Essentially what does it mean? It means that excellence in any field is not a onetime feat. It is a cumulative outcome of a series of acts performed by an individual over a period of time in pursuit of excellence. We cannot hope to be excellent in one field, say in our workplace, while we are sloppy in our personal life or in the way we interact with people.

Why should we work?

The way to live one’s life well is to pursue excellence in everything one does. We should find fulfillment in whatever work we are doing. We should work with an attitude of gratitude to the Almighty for making life meaningful for us. I hope that we the members of DBM can live with this spirit. Only then we can enrich our life and mission.

“The greatest waste in the world is the difference between what we are and what we are capable of becoming” - Ben Herbster

Sounds strange, but all of us have to learn to work well. Most of us are working far below our capacity. Our abilities and energies are underutilized. We are like an industrial establishment with the installed capacity of 1000 units, but producing just 200 units. If we can reduce substantially the gap between what we are capable of producing and what we are actually producing, we can work wonders. Sounds strange, but it is true. One is reminded of the words of Thomas Alva Edison: “If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves”

Why should one work? Gandhiji has described ‘wealth without work’ as one of the seven deadly social sins. We have not to look very far to see what happens where people inherit large chunks of wealth. Because they have much more than what they need, they stop doing any productive work. They just waste their time. Wealth without work not only kills their desire to work, but makes them spend their money in luxuries, in drinking, in sensual pleasures and what not!

One has therefore to work, and teach one’s children also to work in spite of the wealth that one possesses. We the members of DBM should set an example for others by utilizing our time, energies and resources well.

How should we work ?

Having concluded that we should work, we should also learn to work fruitfully and efficiently. People have the tendency to spread work over available time. What is required is that we should work effectively. We should not spend the whole day on work which can be finished in a couple of hours, and feel that we have been working hard for the full day.

People have to work for earning a livelihood. The question is how one should earn. Our Scriptures tell us that we should work ‘without causing any torment to others, without going to the place of villainous people, without causing any unhappiness to our soul, even if we earn a little that should be considered to be more than enough’.

Working hard and making an honest living are not enough. We should work with a purpose, a noble cause. There is a difference between just breaking stones and working to make a temple. Working for a good cause brings a special kind of happiness and a sense of fulfillment, a joy which is difficult to describe.

If we can bring a smile to the face of the poorest of the poor, and wipe a tear from the eyes of a person undergoing pain and suffering, we would have done something worthwhile. It is this small act of kindness and compassion that really matters. In the words of Mother Teresa: “We cannot do great things on this Earth; only small things with great love.”

Ultimately we have to reach a stage where we realize that we are working by the grace of the Divine, and according to His Will and Plan. We will then understand that it is not we who are working, but it is the Divine who is working through us. We are just His chosen instruments. And we are fortunate to be so.

Hence, let every member of DBM then work:

- work to his/her fullest potentials

- work for the noble cause of building a hunger-free, caste-free and corruption-free India

- work with the understanding that it is the Divine who is working through us.

It will make our lives truly worthwhile. It will make DBM an effective instrument of the Divine. It will make India great.

'Sahana Yoga'  

            

Sahana Yoga is the path of forgiving, enduring and self-sacrificing love as taught and demonstrated to the world by Sadguru Jesus Christ, and  adapted and applied by Mahatma Gandhi in the form of Satyagraha for winning the political freedom of India. It is the path of non-violent social transformation adopted and promoted by DBM for achieving the aim and objectives of the Second Freedom Struggle.

‘Pancha Tatva’

            

DBM and other organizations / institutions collaborating with DBM for the success of the Second Freedom Struggle of India will follow at all times and in all matters the Pancha Tatva (five principles) of enlightened leadership consisting of: Focus & Progress, Grow & Help Grow, Trust & Entrust, Risk & Rise, and Respond & Reportdeveloped and taught by Swami Sachidananda Bharathi. They will also adhere to the basic mission methodology of the Second Freedom Struggle: ‘begin with self, begin today and begin small’ taught and promoted by him.
