Prime Principles

Brahmo Samaj - Prime Principles

The Prime ('Adi') Principles of the Brahmo Religion are :-


Simple Version

[On God:] There is always Infinite Singularity - immanent and transcendant Singular Author and Preserver of Existence - He who is manifest everywhere and in everything, in the fire and in the water, in the smallest plant to the mightiest oak.

[On Being:] Being is created from Singularity. Being is renewed to Singularity. Being exists to be one (again) with Loving Singularity.

[On Intelligent Existence:] Righteous actions alone rule Existence against Chaos. Knowledge of pure Conscience is the One (Supreme) ruler of Existence with no symbol or intermediary being.

[On Love:] Respect all creations and beings but never venerate them for only Singularity can be loved.


Expanded Version:

[On God:] There is always Infinite (limitless, undefinable, unperceivable, indivisible) Singularity - immanent and transcendant Singular Author and Preserver of Existence - He who is manifest everywhere and in everything, in the fire and in the water, in the smallest plant to the mightiest oak.

[On Being:] Being is created from Singularity. Being is renewed to Singularity. Being exists to be one (again) with Loving Singularity.

[On Intelligent Existence:] Righteous (worshipful, intelligent, moral) actions alone rule (regulate[preserve]) Existence against Chaos (loss [decay, return, pervading emptiness]). Knowledge (Intelligence[reason, sentience, intuition]) of pure Conscience (light within) is the One (Supreme) ruler (authority[law, dharma]) of Existence with no symbol (creation [scripture, book, object]) or intermediary (being[teacher, messiah, ruler]).

[On Love:] Respect all creations and beings but never venerate (worship) them for only Singularity can be loved (adored, worshipped).
