The quantity of water which you can take from a reservoir depends on the size and quality of the vessel. The bigger the vessel, the larger is the quantity of water. Again even if the vessel is big, if it is full of pores it can hold no water. Similarly you must become big vessels and that too without any pores. Then only you will experience the flood of Guruís grace.

Divine Mother Sree Rama DeviThe advent of Divinity as the world-preceptor heralds an era of awakening in the social, moral and spiritual spheres of human activity. Whereas the savants uphold learning and the saints come to sing the glory of God, the Divine assumes form and a personality to establish dharma on earth. The life and teaching of the Divine Personality is a vindication of the moral law.

Rama Sakti Mission is a movement based and build on the highest ethics and spiritual philosophy of Divine Mother. The light, the guide, the source of inspiration and the power of sustenance for the Mission is Divine Mother's grace and personality.

As a part of Mother's divine dispensation, the Mission in its purely spiritual sense, has a history of growth and development stretching over a period of more than seven decades. In this sense, the Mission has been unfolding itself stage by stage as a movement of spiritual force initiated by Divine Sankalpa. Ever since Divine Mother started guiding the disciples and devotees who flocked to Her at Her home in Tellicherry, this movement too has emerged as a unifying force.

In Mother's ministry, home occupies the pivotal position of spiritual significance. The teaching which She imparts and the system of yoga She has evolved, revolve round the theme that perfection is possible of attainment in home. In a world torn with strifes and conflicts, at a time when social order itself is crumbling under the weight of evil and moral anarchy, the movement initiated by Divine Mother breathes into the body of the society a rejuvenating moral force and spiritual energy.

Tracing the historical trend of our movement, it is but appropriate to say that the fundamental units of our Mission are therefore the homes where the Mother's disciples and devotees live and function. The governing ideals of our Movement also form part of the codes of conduct for individuals functioning in home and society. In this Dispensation of Divine Mother, the individual, the home and the public institution are brought into the frame work of a common discipline. The Movement as the organized body, has in the beginning, private home as its venue of activity before it began, spreading, into greater spheres'.

Divine Mother Sree Rama DeviUniting individuals into a common fraternity and bringing homes into a regime of Divine Mother's healthy spiritual discipline, emerged the adhyatimic units popularly called as "Mandalies". Under Mother's aegis and inspiration, several such Mandalies, the centres of spiritual activity, sprang up all over the country and even abroad and we have today a vast and co-ordinated network of spiritual units steadily expanding with a membership already running into thousands. These Mandalies provide the forum for hundreds of seekers and sadhakas, irrespective of caste, creed or social standing, to come together and assemble on a common platform of an all-embracing spiritual ideal. They promote a whole order of brotherhood, committed to a higher way of life and working for personal spiritual progress as well as the good of mankind. They are centres of social harmony promoting the ancient culture of the Rishis of this land.

The divine urge and the motherly love prompted Mother to move out of Her private home in Tellicherry disseminating wisdom and propagating the divine gospels of higher life. Shri. Bhagawan, Her consort, also used to travel with Mother during such triumphal tours for many years until he was advised to discontinue tours on medical grounds. Where-ever Mother's Holy Feet trod, where-ever Her voice was heard, a Mandali cropped up and the message took deep root in the devotees' hearts. Mother's has been an epoch making tour, the veritable 'digvijaya', conquering human minds and directing lives into channels of Truth and Righteousness.

Congregational bhajans, worship of Divine Mother, mass meditation, talks on spiritual topics and propagation of Mother's message through sale of publications etc., are the main features of spiritual activity carried on in the Mandalies. Thus the Mandali served as a spiritual institution for many new seekers, showing the way to the Presence of Divinity, Divine Mother Herself and the life divine. Receiving spiritual guidance from Divine Mother, these adhyatmic unit have been, since the past many years, functioning systematically.

Thus, it is correct to say that the first appearance of the Mission in a properly organized manner was in the form of Mandalies. These units scattered in various parts of the country were actually the limbs of the unseen spiritual personality of the Mission. The Mandalies worked harmoniously as independent units. Though there was no central organization to supervise their activities, perfect emotional integration prevailed among them, purely due to the power of Divine Mother's love and the idealism supplied by Her Teaching. A common devotion and loyalty to Divine Mother served as the unifying link. Though some of these big centres situated in the principle cities, were registered bodies, many others functioned as groups recognized by the fraternity.

Devotees of Divine Mother have a common identity and are above sectarian loyalties based on language, province, caste and community. Love has bound them into a single, strong and well-knit community. Such miraculous unification of hearts, hard to be found in the modern world, is indeed a wonder of Mother's Divine personality and spiritual teaching. Though customs of communities are respected, though regional festivals and religious customs are honoured, Mother's devotees are one in their spiritual brotherhood, in their higher allegiance to Mother and the Mission, and also in their higher mode of life. Their outlook of life is same. The distinctions as high and low do not exist in thought and conduct. The diversities are there in mental temperaments, in ways of dress, in language, but they are superficial and are encompassed by a deeper unity.

Divine Mother Sree Rama DeviAs the membership and the Mandalies grew, a need was felt for a unification into a central Organization. After having prepared the ground through emotional integration, and inspired by Divine Mother's call to a humanitarian religion of love, unity and understanding, these adhyatmic mandalies formed themselves into a Central Body under the name 'Ram? ?akti Mission' as an Organization registered under Societies Act on October 18, 1965, with Mangalore, Divine Mother's place of birth as its Head Quarters.

The distinguishing aspect of our Movement is that the individual units, the Mandalies came into being first and the unifying Centre emerged afterwards. As a tiny seed grows into a gigantic tree, so too, is growing into universal dimension. Dedicated to the propagation of Divine Mother's Teaching and thereby to the social and spiritual advancement of mankind, the Mission accommodates within its planned programme of activity, not only the scope of spiritual progress of the individuals but also the scheme for uplift of social conditions.

The activities of the Mission are guided by a sense of realism and practical outlook on life. What the Mission envisages is not an exclusive and isolated pursuit of a personal religion, but the development of an all round and integrated personality and the evolving of a free, illumined, talented and dedicated community of men and women, armed with practical efficiency, moral purity, ethical excellence and spiritual consciousness. It is this aspect of spirituality that attracts to the fold of the Mission householders who constitute the backbone of the nation.

The administration of the Mission's affairs conforms to Mother's lofty ideals. This is an edifice founded on spirituality. The concept of spiritual life, emerging from Mother's Teaching and Her own illustrious personal example of life is n ot a life of cloistered seclusion cut off from the mainstream of human society, but of a life of dynamism, a life of immense capacity to be useful in service to fellowmen, a life of non-attachment, a life that reconciles meditational pursuit and social duties. The members of the Mission are mostly active men of the world, whose outlook is spiritual but whose sphere of activity is society.

The aspiration of the Mission is to reflect the will of Divine Mother; the organizational activity of the Mission through its own general and governing bodies and the Branch units and affiliated groups, is to give practical shape to Mother's teaching relating to a higher and God-oriented life. From private homes to public institutions the rhythm of a divine existence has to be established.

Among the noble objects of the Mission are phased programmes and plans for creative service, not only for the dissemination of spiritual knowledge, but also for amelioration of the social conditions. The poor, sick and the destitute have to be taken care of through education, free medical aid and spiritual ministration. The career of the younger generation has to be moulded. Mother's divine gospels have to be propagated and popularized through effective and efficient publication machinery.

Divine Mother Sree Rama DeviThough the external and organized form of activity in a spirit of service is the visible aspect of the Mission envisaged in its Memorandum of Associations, the inner potential, the nucleus of the Mission is truly spiritual in nature. Service, to be an expression of disinterested love, has to spring up form an integrated personality. Social service becomes an empty slogan when name and fame and personal glory become prime motivations. Service, in true sense, is a loving communion with the fellow beings, a communion with the social Self, a communion with one's own deeper divinity finding expression in creative unfoldment of personality. Therefore, man is more important than his work. Work flowing from a selfish man brings no benefit either to himself or to the society. Hence, inward spiritual integrity receives primary consideration in Mother's teaching. When one outgrows his little self, the aroma of his Soul radiates. His actions become a service. Taking this spiritual aspect into account, the Mission is concentrating its energy, will and resources in building up an ideal community of men and women dedicated to the noblest idealism reflected in Mother's exhortations. The developmental activities of the Mission have been primarily guided by this objective in view.

Mission's record of progress during years has been spectacular. In some of the Mission centers like Trivandrum, Kayamkulam, Trichur, Mailapuram, Mercara, Bangalore and Bombay, beautiful prayer Halls and Mandirs have been constructed. In the shrines at Trivandrum, Kayamkulam and Trichur, the 'Panchaloha Vigrahas' of Divine Mother have been religiously installed by Divine Mother Herself.

In the Mandirs at Mercara and Thana, imposing marble idols of Divine Mother have been installed by Divine Mother Sree Tara Devi, the President of the Mission and Divine Mother's successor. Quite recently, Mandirs sprang up, one at Ahmednagar, Maharashtra, and the other at Cannanore, Kerala. In both these Mandirs, lovely Krishna Shila (Black Stone) vigrahas of Divine Mother were installed by Divine Mother Sree Tara Devi and the consecration ceremonies connected with the same were solemnized with a series of colorful religious programmes.

Divine Mother Sree Rama DeviThe biggest Mandir dedicated to Devi Ramambika (Divine Mother) came into being however at the Mission's Headquarters, Shakti Nagar, in the year 1976. This Mandir is a combination of two structures: one, a lovely and massive prayer hall, Bhagawan Memorial, by name, with a seating capacity of 1200, and dedicated to the hallowed memory of Sri. Bhagawan (Sri. S. Krishna Bhagath), and the other, a strong and powerful shrine dedicated to the worship of Devi Ramambika. This impressive Temple was declared open by Divine Mother Herself on 12th April 1976. The installation of the beautiful Krishna Shila Vigraha of Devi Ramambika, took place at the Hands of Divine Mother Sree Tara Devi in the immediate benedictive presence of Divine Mother, since then, the Mandir has grown into a powerful spiritual center. The shrine is full of presence, chaitanya and glory of Divine Mother.

These Shrines and prayer halls are not mere places for worship. They have grown into potential spiritual institutions where the Sadhakas in hundreds are engaged in a collective quest. This is indeed a new experiment in religious quest and has already started revealing its inherent dynamism. Apart from fostering a feeling of fraternity and fellowship and facilitating quicker spiritual advancement to the individual sadhakas, these institutions of spirituality are making a tremendous contribution towards creation of an egalitarian society.

Among the declared objectives of the Mission are (a) to form a nucleus of the universal brotherhood of humanity without distinction of race, creed, caste or sex; (b) to enlighten the people on the principles of service to humanity in a spirit of dedication to God as propounded by Divine Mother; (c) to popularize the teachings of Divine Mother; (d) to awaken human consciousness to eternal values of Sanatana Dharma; (e) to serve humanity by restoring domestic and community lives to the highest concept of spiritual and moral perfection as emphasized in the teachings of Divine Mother. Herein an ideal of the highest form of spirituality reconciling the secular and spiritual interests of life. In fact, in Mother's concept of spirituality, there are no compartments like worldly and spiritual. Spiritual outlook and spiritual vision should dictate and inspire activity, in all spheres of life. Mother's is a dynamic spirituality which is kept aloft as a practical ideal to be realized even by the busy householder.

One of the spectacular achievements of the Mission, is the launching of its wing of humanitarian service, extending free medical aid to the poor and down trodden. Under this scheme, Ram? ?akti Mission Charitable Hospital was inaugurated at Shakti Nagar premises by H. E. Shri Govind Narain, the Governor of Karnataka, on 11th April, 1979. Built at a cost of Rs. 9.5 lakhs, this Hospital project is a comprehensive Medical Complex, consisting of male and female Examination chambers, Specialists Chamber, E.C.G. Unit, Midwifery and Delivery Chamber and a vast air-conditioned Operation Theatre, with preparatory room and Post-operative Ward. To start with, the Hospital has two General Wards one for men and the other for women, each consisting of 14 beds for in-patients, and a special Block consisting of 6 rooms as Special Ward. The Complex also covers quarters for Resident Doctor and Nurses, a common kitchen and Drug store.

Divine Mother Sree Rama DeviThe emergence of a well-equipped and competently manned hospital with all component departments in such a rural location has been hailed as a most welcome development. This is a project which was very dear to Divine Mother and She had watched the day-to-day growth of this structure with kindly eyes and maternal love. In Mother's Dispensation, service of fellow men receives the pride of place, leading to a widening of sympathy and expansion of consciousness, which are the hall marks of perfection.

The Mission, we believe, is still in its incipient stage. With the achievements the Mission has already to its credit, the vision of a bright future of immense possibilities and attainments is with us. Time alone can reveal the nature of the Divine plan to be worked out through the executive agency of Divine, the Mission.

The affairs of the Mission, subject to rules and regulations of the Mission and to Resolutions passed by the General Body from time to time are being managed by the Governing Body, the members to which are elected at the Annual General Body Meeting from a panel of members approved by the President. The office bearers are elected from among the members of Governing Body. The Governing Body periodically meets and decisions are taken by collective deliberations. As founder members, representative members, ordinary members, life members and non-resident members, there are five categories of membership to the Mission.

With the grace of Divine Mother to guide, and a lofty idealism to inspire, the Mission as a dynamic movement of spiritual force is already making a great impact on the contemporary society. It is our hope that the Mission before long, will become an international moral and spiritual movement helping mankind to realize the grand idea voiced forth in the sacred Vedas - the idea of a 'One World Community'.
