Doctrine of Sadharan Brahmo Samaj

Doctrine of the Sadharan Brahmo Samaj

1) Faith in a Supreme Being and in Existence after Death is natural to man;

2) We regard the relation between God and men to be direct and immediate;

3) We do not believe in the infallibility of any man or any scripture ;

4) Whatever book contains truths calculated to ennoble the soul or elevate the character is a Brahmo's scripture, and whoever teaches such truths is his teacher and guide;

5) We regard the belief in an individual being a way to salvation, or a link between God and Man, as an unworthy belief, and those who hold such belief as unworthy of the Brahmo name;

6) We consider it to be blasphemy and an insult to the Majesty of Heaven to claim Divine inspiration for any act opposed to the dictates of reason, truth, and morality;

7) We regard the culture of faith at the sacrifice of reason, or the culture of reason at the sacrifice of faith as equally defective, and as fruitful sources of evil in the religious world;

8) We consider love of God and doing the will of God as equally imperative in the routine of a Brahmo's life;

9) We regard the worship of one God as the highest of a Brahmo's duties and as the best of means to improve the soul and the neglect of it as a way to spiritual death.
