PARIS DECLARATION is the last document signed by the Founder
of Sahaj Marg System and the First President of Shri Ram Chandra
Mission – Rev. Babuji Maharaj. This document shows His directions
how the Sahaj Marg System should be propagated and the future
organizers managing the affairs of the Mission will be required to
adhere to His direction.
A copy of the Paris Declaration is being given below for information.
17th September 2012
WE ARE ALL ONE ‘Sahaj Marg’ is for integration. When
we have studied the pros and cons of the Mission, we hope
to read the real sense of discipline necessary. Both sides
are visible but there is some flaw and that can be easily
removed provided we have the Mission in heart and not in
mind alone and that people are having . What remains is
the thought to be manifested before the general view.
There are many curvatures coming in the way as obstacles
like bubbles in the water which can be removed very easily
because power is working behind you, of which we have
the least knowledge.
2. Co-operation is the life of coming events also but if they are
wavering they will be wasting power.
3. We are united in a common cause keeping towards proper
order for the good of man and humanity.
4. Keeping the ideal that service is better than served the Shri
Ram Chandra Mission, Shahjahanpur, is there to serve the
humanity in which we all are going to be woven in a
uniform pattern discipline.
5. In view of the growing need of the spirituality and the
trend flowing from the Nature, it was thought necessary
that the entire Mission’s Organisation be knit in a unified
strong set up.
6. (a) Therefore, in the first instance, it was thought
imperative to express India in various zones, each zone
largely consisting of more than one state of the country,
and is represented through a person designated as ‘Zonal
Secretary’, appointed by the President of the Mission to
work for the good of the people as well as to carry out
instructions and directions from him in the service of the
humanity. Each training centre of the Mission is having a
‘Centre in-charge’ or ‘Organiser’ and is placed
organizationally to work under the Zonal Secretary,
working for the welfare and development of the persons as
per instructions and directions of the President.
6. (b) The Zonal Secretary is to supervise the working of the
Mission’s work placed in his zone and create co-ordination
amongst the Headquarters, the Preceptors and the Centresin-
charge together with the Organisers appointed.
6. (c) All the centres in India are governed by “Shri Ram
Chandra Mission Financial Accounting and Procedural
Rules, 1981”. The Zonal Secretary, in addition to other
duties, has to see that the said rules with the other
instructions and rules made by the Mission or the orders
given by the President are fully implemented and complied
7. (a) It is observed that by the hard pursuit of our abhyasis
in the countries overseas, the Mission has already spread
over. It also requires a set up in uniformity with India to
be knit up firmly and strongly. So it is again expedient that
such organizational touches be also given to those centres.
By now in the countries overseas the Centres are divided
countrywise with one preceptor called “Centre-in-charge”
for the entire country, who co-ordinates various centres in
that country. Some of the overseas centres have got a
status of a registered and independent unit under the local
laws of that land. In this way the abhyasis of such centres
took organizationally to the locally registered units, and for
spirituality towards the Shri Ram Chandra Mission at
Shahjahanpur. All this makes abhyasis conscious of their
own natural identity carrying in mind the traces of
controversial, Racial, linguistic and other prejudices. This
not only comes in the way of spiritual development but
also in the healthy development of human personality,
integration, Co-operation, harmony, humanity, universal
brotherhood and true relationship. The training centres
created in India or abroad are really meant to carry the
message of Shri Ram Chandra Mission, Shahjahanpur to
the largest number of human beings living in the world.
The centres, if registered, are only echoes of Shri Ram
Chandra Mission, Shahjahanpur.
(b) The overseas centres, though appear to be working
with full enthusiasm, but still it has become incumbent to
strengthen them.
8. In the Basant message given on 30th January 1982, it was
said :
“ We are all brethren connected intellectually, morally and
spiritually – the main goal of human life. This and that
have gone now. There remains the purity alone in all His
work and environment which weaves the spiritual destiny
of the persons with the ultimate.
9. In view of the above growing need of the Mission and to
bring about uniformity
(i) It is only natural to do away with position of “Centrein-
charge for the Country” and instead there will be
“Centre-in-charge” or “Organiser” for various centres
abroad giving them the full opportunity to work in
the centre and thus to gain spirituality.
(ii) the entire world for purposes and working of the
Mission is expressed into zones, largely taking each
continent as the basis.
(iii) the Headquarters for all the centres abroad as well as
in India shall be at Shahjahanpur and all will be
governed by the same.
(iv) Appropriate financial, accounting & procedural rules
along with the other rules, necessary keeping into
consideration the local laws of the land shall be
framed by the President for implementation by
overseas centres also.
