Both the SSG and the FSSG were founded to promote the following three Missions:
- To help people realize the Divine Self within
- To introduce and propagate spiritual values in all walks of material life, including economics, politics and social life in general
- To bring about a unity in the diversity of religions.
Like the SSG the FSSG promotes a comprehensive system of beliefs based upon spiritual principles which are the foundation of all religions. However, the essence of what is taught may be found in the Essential Teachings which are intended to help individuals grow to know God, by realizing their own soul, to begin with. In addition to 51 Scripts that have been printed in a small book called Silence Speaks, the Essential Teachings are:
- Seven Principles of Right Surrender
- Seven Principles of God Guidance through Force of Circumstances
- Seven Principles of Karma Yoga
These Essential Teachings are found on the SSG website and can be accessed by going to Teachings on our website. The above three sets of spiritual principles together are the key that will help to fulfill the first mission, which is “to help people realize the Divine Self within.” However, by its very nature, this particular mission is limited to those very few exceptional individuals who are committed to emptying themselves so that their human personality can be filled by the Divine Self within, and thus experience one of the truths that Jesus the Christ proclaimed when he said words to the effect, “The empty alone shall be filled.”
These principles are also applicable to all human activity. If educational institutions will use these principles to develop a curriculum to build the character of students, then through the students these principles can help to fulfill the second mission, which is “to introduce and propagate spiritual values in all walks of material life, including economics, politics and social life in general”.
When these principles are understood and accepted by religious leaders, they will be useful to further the third mission, which is “to bring about unity in the diversity of religions”.
