THE GREAT REFUGE BY RAM SWARUP

RESPECT FOR THE GURU - Gurupuja
To serve and honor one's teachers and respect all spiritual guides, which means also to put into practice their teachings. 

STUDY OF THE TEACHING 
To study the Hindu spiritual tradition and its teachings on a regular basis, including scriptural texts like the Vedas, Itihasas, Puranas and Agamas.

TRANSMISSION OF THE TEACHING 
To respect Hindu teachings as a valid and universal spiritual path. To strive to pass them on through various forms of instruction. To share whatever we know, particularly with those who are younger than we are.

PROTECTION OF THE EARTH - Bhumi Rakshana
To protect the Earth, its plants and animals, and all its resources. To view the Earth as a manifestation of the Divine Mother.

VEGETARIANISM or PURITY IN DIET - Shuddhahara
To as far as possible be a vegetarian, for purposes of purification of the mind, non-violence, and protection of the Earth. This means also to avoid all intoxicants, drugs and stimulants.

MODERATION/ SIMPLICITY 
To be moderate in all of our actions, taking only what is necessary and avoiding excesses. To not make ourselves a burden upon others or upon the Earth.

NON-INTERFERENCE
To not give unsought advice or try to interfere in the lives of others, even if we think that what they are doing is wrong. Not try to impose our views upon others whatever they may think.

UNIVERSALITY - Vishvata
To respect all true spiritual and beneficial views and practices, whatever their name and form, whether they have come from within any particular religion or outside of all of them. 

This, however, does not mean that one should respect or compromise with unspiritual and harmful practices done under the veil of religion or anything else.

PEACE - Shanti
To act out of peace and to promote peace in all that one does. To wish only peace for all beings and creatures.
