the Founders of the UWA in
response to the persistent promptings of the human spirit for
release into the New Age of emotional integration and moral
purpose, seek to lay the foundations for an eternal educational
system of universal scope that will bring to the common focus, the
idea of one world and the idea of the emancipated soul.
We agree, therefore, that in the Minds of
humankind the implicit need for a compassionate world
order must be recognized, accepted, advanced, and fulfilled.
In pursuing the ideal, we
recognize the immense necessity for giving voice to the
desperate humanity, yeaming to be set free of the age-old bondage
of ignorance, superstition, poverty, hunger and degradation of
war, and do, therefore, propose to bring about a common awareness
for achieving a higher standard of economic welfare and a more
joyful, social, cultural and spiritual life in which all things
are conceived, nurtured and brought to fruition.
we propose to establish the conditions
to discover the mainsprings of human aspiration and nobility; to
investigate impartially and vigorously into the frontier areas of
the human mind and dignity; to open up new vistas of research into
every facet of spiritual learning that promises to improve man’s
understanding of himself and his intimate relationship with the
Towards this achievement-goal of
Realization, the Association explicitly expresses no
religious affinity that will identify it with any particular faith
or denomination thereof nor shall it set forth any doctrine or
dogma that would serve to establish an exclusive method of
salvation. It further
expresses no political ideology other than the commitment of
service to humanity. It
shall formalize no prayer that identifies it with a creed, enact
no ceremonial deed and shall sponsor no ritual that limits its
perception of the universal truth.
|Its gradation exercises, when performed, shall be
impressively simple, spiritually significant and intellectually
ennobling so as to exercise its authority as an educational body
with a kind of spiritual orientation.
We affirm, for this reason, that in the
Human Heart must
be discovered that spark of divinity which, when fanned into a
brilliant and effulgent flame, shall illumine the world with the
warmth of its compassion.
Such is that unbreakable Unity
with which we pledge to achieve our cherished goal; an Association
formed to carry aloft the torch of light with a “brighter
flame” to illumine the minds of all people; an Association
formed to kindle the light of love and compassion among all
nations and whenever possible, in areas of conflict, the
Association will act as counseling body for equalizing the flow of
knowledge, for reducing aggression and of generating attitudes of
fraternization; and an Association of Truth to lend meaning to the
pursuit of excellence with a view to forge an endless alliance and
a more perfect Union among the people of the Earth.
