The teaching of Ramkrishna Paramhansa and Swami Vivekananda:

"Each soul is potentially divine. The goal is to manifest this divinity within, by controlling nature. Do this either by work, or worship or psychic control, or philosophy – by one, or more, or all of these – and be free. This is the whole of religion... Doctrines or dogmas or rituals or books or temples or forms are but secondary details."

To upgrade the quality of lives of everyone in the villages: the children, the youth, women, men and the aged, mainly through their own involvement, interest and initiative."
