What Do They Do?

The Mission 's Culture Centers do not by themselves do anything other than providing an agreed place where like minded men and women may regularly meet as a mutually supportive group. The members of the center jointly pursue an agreed regimen spiritual practice for their own cultural and spiritual betterment. Ideally, a daily 60 minute regimen of prayer, repeating Mantra , meditation, reading of scripture, learning sacred rituals, singing in praise of God or chanting hymns is prescribed. For benefiting individually, the members of the culture centers receive spiritual initiation by way of Mantra Diksha from the Spiritual Head of the Mission if they so wish and are advised to undertake the set regimen of spiritual betterment on daily basis. However, each member is encouraged to devote such time as is convenient and practicable for him. Rigidity is not the way of the Mission .
