Manav Dharma

What is the Power which energizes you? What is the mystery behind the process of respiration? What is the vital energy on which everything depends? 

That life-energy isn’t something which can be expressed verbally, yet it is the source of all languages. It is invisible, yet it makes us see. It cannot be known through logic or philosophy, yet the powers of reason and memory spring from it. It is the Self in every single being and experiencing it, realizing it, is our natural dharam, or Manav Dharam (‘the dharam of mankind’). 

Manav Dharam is realizing one’s own innate potential and to evolving it to its ultimate levels. It means realising the common bond which encompasses the whole universe. It is universal, eternal, ever present and beyond matter and mind. Man is not merely a mechanism of body and mind but is Spirit in its truest sense. This is why it is said that we are one in spirit. In fact spirit is life and life is spirit. Manav Dharam therefore in simplest terms can be summed up in the phrase “Know Thyself!”. 



Shri Satpal Ji Maharaj, the expounder of Manav Dharam, travels constantly to inspire and encourage others to experience this inner life force which is our true essence. He reveals the same techniques of spiritual insight to all, irrespective of nationality, caste or creed. Manav Dharam encompasses the teachings of all religions and is the source of them all. It is the eternal wisdom flowing from the practical Knowledge of the Soul. 

Shri Maharaj Ji is the founder of the organization ‘Manav Utthan Sewa Samiti’, which aspires to manifest ‘Knowledge in Action’. It operates a wide range of charitable and social services through its network of more than 3000 ashrams and centers.
