About the Mission

The genesis of Paramhans Satyarthi Mission ("PSM") is as old as “Satya" itself. Satya is nothing but “God", who is eternal and constant (unchanging) in this perishable and ever-changing world.  The fundamental belief “Realization of Satya is Self-Realization" is the founding principle of the mission. Born on 30th November 1987, Our Gurudev, Paramhans Swami Ramanand Satyarthi ji Maharaj, a true yogi and ascetic, devoted his life for the cause of "Satya". Under the guidance of Shri. Nangli Niwasi Bhagwan ji (Shri Shri 1008 Swami Swarupanand ji Maharaj), he attained supreme Self-Realization and vowed to publicize the knowledge of " Satya" for the welfare of humankind. Accordingly, he renounced the world in 1964 and established " Raj Yoga" Mandir in Gandhi Nagar and guided numerous devotees in their search for " Satya".  In 1985, after anointment of Swami Keshwanand ji Maharaj as the next guru of the mission, the objectives of PSM were further broadened, consolidated and reinforced. The aim of PSM is to facilitate Self Realization by imparting practical knowledge of Rajyoga. PSM also stands for Purity, Service and Meditation which enumerates a simple mantra for Self Realization. The mission does not discriminate on the basis of caste, creed, racial, religious and financial differences for creation of better society and believes in the principle of Vasudev-Kutumbkam (The World is one family), meaning that all the human beings are equal in the eyes of God.

Key Principles

Belief: Adwaita (Non Duality of Creature and God, Creature is identical with Parbraham or Every soul is the reflection of Supreme Soul i.e. God )

Gaddi (legacy): Centuries old Paramhansa tradition in which knowledge is transferred by Guru Shishya parampara.

Maha-Mantra: Aham Bharam Asmi (I am Brahma or I am the reflection of Supreme Soul or God).

Ultimate Aim

To promote principle that “same soul resides in every individual” and facilitate Self Realization by following : P for Purity: Inculcating purity in thoughts by doing nishkam karma i.e doing karma while remaining unattached in the world or doing karma as if driven by duties. S for Service: Selfless Service to Gurudev. No service can be truly selfless until it is driven by prem, bhakti and Devotion. M for Meditation: Meditation or Rajyoga, a scientific way to attain supreme self realization. Vasudev-Kutumbkam: Promoting equality by practicing principle of “World is like a big family” in daily life and non violence.

PSM Teachings

PSM stands for Purity, Service, and Meditation.

1. Mission provides spiritual and eternal peace by instilling Purity of thoughts, Selfless-Service , and Meditation.

2. PSM believes in ‘SarvmayiAatmjyot’, which means that the same empowering consciousness (Soul) resides within every individual.

3. The symbol of PSM is  ‘Aatmhans’  which is sitting on lotus flower surrounded by water with mystic powers. As the  lotus leaf is not affected  by water even though it grows in water, the same way Satyarthi is like Aatamhans who, while living his worldly life,  remains unattached to the worldly affairs and always remains focused on its ultimate aim of realizing Paramsatya. The water represents the worldly attachments. Amidst the worldly attachments, the spirituality shows the way to reach the Supreme Soul, represented by divine light in the Symbol. The divine light is the Super–Consciousness (“Supreme Soul”) which is the driving force of whole World. The Aatam hans is looking at the divine light representing Satyarthi who remains focused on Divine Light which is over and above the mundane worldly pursuits.

4. PSM is the University of Spirituality where transcendent knowledge is explained in simple language.  Here by selfless service, devotion and sadhna, one acknowledges the transition in oneself and realizes Self and Paramsatya. The mission dedicatedly helps people realize the importance of humanitarian work and sadhna.

5. At PSM, a mentor-mentee relation is like that of a Godfather and son. At every stage and in every situation, the Sadgurudev acting as Godfather solves the miseries of his son by directing him towards the path of truth and virtuous deeds.

6. PSM is based on the individual experiences and involvements. Apart from gaining theoretical knowledge, practical sessions are included in the sessions and personalized attention is given to everyone. PSM  ensures  no  discrimination  among  people and imparts supreme knowledge to everyone. PSM is based on the principal that” more you practice, the more you learn”. It is based on Abhyaas Yog.

7. At PSM, every aspirant is considered a significant part of Shri Paramhans Satyarthi Maharaj Ji’s family.  In  Satyarthi society,  there is  no place for malice, malevolence or discrepancy.

8. PSM recognizes all religions and embraces positive qualities of all faiths. No one  is told to give up   practicing one’s religious faith and belief. Here one is taught to  practice Sadhna and realize the subtle power of inner being under the supervision of his Gurudev.

9. PSM believes that whosoever learns with the direction and blessings of SadgurudevJi, will be born as a human in next birth as well. PSM believes that Sadgurudev has power to put human beings on the path of salvation. Once, the aspirant gets onto the right path,  he will  ultimately accede to the Yog Pad  and reach ultimate  salvation in one or multiple births.

10. At PSM, no one is expected to donate money directly or indirectly. Any donation is at the discretion of the devotee.  The mission inspires selfless work without any expectation of reward. Mission’s Aim:
