From the heart



If you have to go, then go: what kind of hesitation can there be? The path is the path. Necessity is necessity. There is no life without purpose. If you are afraid to take a step, then you are dying; if you reconsider your choice of path out of fear for yourself, it means that you have already died. If, for the sake of achieving the goal, you decided on meanness or atrocity, then your path died. This is how it should be: do not desecrate your path and do not desecrate yourself. It's difficult. But if you strive for easiness, then sit and scratch yourself; although it may be also too difficult for you. The more noble the aim is, the more difficult the path is – this is the truth. Very rarely, it is quick and easy to achieve something meaningful. This is more unusual than usual. Therefore, be prepared for a difficult road.



A worthy person is one who has chosen a worthy path, or at least the one who, having chosen a mediocre path, does not defile him with unworthy actions. The one who wallowed himself and his path in mud is an unworthy person. Do not despise him, but do not trust him, and above that - do not trust him with an important matter. He is an amazing being: he seems to be, and at the same time, he ceases to be. This is because a person is not born to wallow in mud. If he does not have a worthy aim and a worthy path, then it is as if he himself does not exist, - after all, the place assigned to him in the world remained unoccupied. We live among such empty people: this is why sometimes it seems that everything around is empty and echoing, and that the world is like a cold night.



Life is a path, a path is overcoming, overcoming is a struggle. There should not be any hatred to what you are fighting with. Hatred destroys. By hating, you destroy yourself, because everything that surrounds you is yourself. Whatever you direct your hatred to, it will fall upon you. It's unavoidable. You will be hurt by it from the outside and from the inside. Hatred is evil; and a man is not meant to do evil. Therefore, it will be extraneous to you, like a stone in a living heart; and in the end the heart will die. Learn to fight without hatred. It is possible.



You can fight without anger and hatred. You can lose without despair. You can die without fear. You can live without shame. All this depends only on the person himself. A man has power over himself; therefore, he can always restrain himself from unworthy actions. And if he had no control over himself, he would be ridiculous. A being with a high mind, a deep soul and a bright heart, and at the same time unable to control himself - what a pitiful creature! The world does not need such a thing. A man is not like that. This means that you should not give yourself humiliating indulgences.



A man is like a well from which one can endlessly draw strength. But few people want to understand this. Strength is duty and responsibility. Hence, strength is action, struggle. And struggle is a hard work, pain and danger. Many are afraid of this, and therefore prefer to be fainthearted and not to notice their strength. They think it's calmer this way. But this is a mistake. No one has peace, because a person is not intended for it, as well as for hatred. If you want peace, you want the impossible. And this does not bring one closer to peace, but takes him away from it. We should be happy with a brief rest that we can get from time to time amid the eternal struggle. While resting, one must be ready to give up rest at any time. We must be ready for this because rest is not a temporary break from the struggle: it exists within it. Only those who understand this will be able to appreciate the minutes of rest at their true worth. And the one who understands will not be upset and broken if the rest is suddenly interrupted.



Will is the best weapon. It is like a sword that will never turn its edge, break, or be lost unless the owner wants it. Anyone who fights is a warrior. And he must not put away his sword. Even when the warrior is resting, the sword must be with him. When he sleeps, his hand should be on the hilt of the sword.



The path of life is the path of a warrior. This is a struggle. If you live, then you are a warrior. If you are not a warrior, then think: do you live? The will of a man is the sword of a warrior. A man and his will are one; hence a warrior and his sword are one. To give up the sword is to give up oneself; to let the sword turn its edge is to mutilate your soul. Not worrying about strengthening your will means neglecting yourself, throwing yourself out as an unnecessary thing. A thoughtful person will not do that.


We are all in the middle of a battle every minute of our lives. The air we breathe is filled with battle. This battle is dangerous. Therefore, the feelings and thoughts of many people are sick with fear. It is as if mud is thrown into a vessel of clean water and stirred. Fear is one of the worst human diseases. It can be found in everyone. Fear kills mind, and can kill conscience if they are not protected with the sword of will. Fear can turn a person into a vile creature, in comparison with whom even the most senseless and coward animal looks like a person. It's like death. Thus the faint-hearted die trying to escape death.



Many people think that our goal in this world is to survive. This is not true. Our goal is to make the world and people better. You need to value and cherish your life, because it is a valuable tool with which a person fulfills his destiny. But one should not value a tool above its purpose. Life will end one day anyway; therefore, one should rejoice when the opportunity to die in the name of good is given, and not just for nothing.



Human existence is based on oughtness. This is what humans were born for. To separate this term from the other, I will call it "The Great Oughtness." Its essence is that a person exists in order for the world to exist. All other obligations are secondary. Life is also secondary. It is a tool. Can it be considered unacceptable for the tool to break during work? If you fear too much for the tool, the task will remain unfulfilled. This is ridiculous. You should not break the tool for nothing: you need to take care of it. But one should not take care of it at the expense of work. Every person's work is the well-being of the world. One can spare his life for these reasons.



Do not think that a person is nothing, an expendable material. A human is a great being. Therefore, The Great Oughtness is the foundation of his life. Cattle does not care about the world because it is just cattle. It has no great oughtness. A man is born to be a man not to live like cattle. He must live like a man and die like a man. Much has been given to him - and much is required of him. Those who do not understand this are close to the cattle.



The one who pours precious medicine into a pit is foolish. Likewise, the one who wastes himself for nothing is foolish too. He throws away life itself, as if it was unnecessary junk. This is unforgivable. It would be better for such a person not to be born, so as not to give his mother unnecessary pain. A mouse that gives birth to its own little mice has more meaning. They at least do what they were born to do. It is shameful for a man to be less significant than a mouse. But there are many who disgraced themselves by this. There are many people with mousy souls. This is because they do not respect themselves. Respecting yourself means appreciating your human essence, understanding your great destiny. However, self-esteem and pride should not be confused. This mistake must be avoided with the utmost care. Self-respect is as different from pride as pure water is different from wine. A person with taste will appreciate the difference.



Don't think that one person can outshine another. He can be smarter, stronger, more beautiful, more honest, richer, he can surpass him in something else, but he cannot outshine him. A man is a man. All people are equal because their essence is equal. The one who understands that he is not inferior to others and does not humiliate himself before them, as if they are higher beings, is moderately proud. It's good. The one who looks at another with disdain, as if he is a lower being, is arrogant. This is unworthy. And whoever puts a person above Nature, his pride has already taken a step towards madness.



Pride is the rot of a soul from which most vices arise. The source of cowardice also lies in pride. Not giving your life for others is to value yourself above them. Often a coward person does not understand this himself. He behaves like an animal. But a man must be a man. You need to be able to look at yourself through the eyes of reason, and not just feelings. You need to be able to evaluate yourself. A man with conscience will not value himself above others. A man of willpower will not allow fear to abscure his mind. A person with a heart will have no doubt whether to die for others.



Not recognizing the real superiority of another person over oneself is one of the types of arrogance. The consequence of this is injustice. Forget your arrogance and be fair. If someone else's superiority really exists, admit it. Accept it. If necessary, follow the one who is more knowledgeable and skilled than you. This is not humiliation, but the natural order of things. Someone is always ahead of the other in something; and it is not humiliating to follow someone who can show the way. It is humiliating to do unworthy deeds at the same time.



All people have the same Great Oughtness. So many people, so many paths; but all these paths merge into one path, just as streams merge into a river. It must be remembered that all paths converge. This should be one of the foundations of life. The separation of people is temporary. They originated from one and will return to one. The current separation is not as deep as it seems. This must not be forgotten. If you look closely, you can see the reflection of your soul in the eyes of any person. Don't be blind.



There are no truly evil people. The world is real and reality is life. Escape from reality brings us to death. Evil is illusory. Going into this illusion is killing us. He who has gone into it sows death around him. First of all, he kills himself. He takes the illusion of evil into himself and becomes different from what he really is. So, he dies. His life becomes unreal: it is like a nightmare that other people see together with him. The reality of evil is a nightmare. Don't sleep in the world of nightmares. Wake up, because the one who is sleeping is not fulfilling his duty. Remember that evil in people is illusory; only the grievous consequences of actions of those who have exchanged life for illusion are real. The evil one sleeps, the one who hates sleeps, the one who despises sleeps. In their nightmares, they do not see themselves and are not aware of themselves, and therefore anything can be expected from them. It is unworthy to be like that.



The one who is not sleeping is able to control himself. Whoever is able to control himself will be able to fight without hatred. Don't look for an enemy. You don't need him. The world is not based on the idea of enmity. Just fight. You will have enough difficulties even without an enemy. If someone tells you that you are enemies with him, do not believe. He is delusional. Don't let his illusion rule your life. He must not sow the seeds of hatred in you. Be the wall they bounce off. Believe not in illusion, but in reality. The reality is like this: evil does not exist in people, hatred does not exist, enmity does not exist. Write it on your heart. Write and let others read.



The world is suppressed by illusions. People are to blame for this. They recognize the non-existent as existing, prefer the illusory life to the genuine one. This needs to be fixed. This is a work worthy of a warrior and a man. One person won't change the world if he doesn’t try. If you are told that nothing can be done, it is not true. People made the world worse; people will make it better. If you don't believe in this, life will have no meaning.



The mountain will not be moved by the one who is too lazy to push it well. This means that you can change the world if you are diligent and consistent in your intentions. Always keep this thought in your head. Remember this better than your name. Then you will be like a fist breaking through the earth. Then nothing will stop you - nor difficulties, nor obstacles. And remember that the same power lurks in every person. But it is one of those forces that needs a certain direction to flow. It does not flow backwards. If you do not care about the good of the world, you will not gain this strength. A coward cannot find it either. Therefore, cast out fear from yourself. Fear is a deception: there is no support for it in reality. It is dust that can be brushed off with one movement of your hand if you are realizing the need.



Who wants a lot for himself, would deal only with himself. He has no time nor energy left for others. You can't become a warrior like that. A warrior chasing comfort and carrying excess weight on his shoulders is not a warrior. This must be realized. In fact, a person needs just a little. Therefore, you need to be able to give up what you don’t really need. The inability to do this makes a person weak. In battle, he has too many extra thoughts. The path is beyond him; The Great Oughtness frightens him. He stands still. He is dead. It is stupid to try living better, ignoring the very meaning of life. This is truly ridiculous. It should be like this: first - meaning, and after that, if you have time and effort - everything else. Then in battle you will look and think properly.



Always be ready to lose what you have. You will not lose the Truth, you will not lose the Great Oughtness, you will not lose reason, you will not lose conscience, you will not lose willpower, you will not lose true freedom, you will not lose love. This means that you will not lose yourself. Everything else is temporary. You can do without it. Remember: the less you need, the fewer weak points you have. This is important for a warrior.



Be modest in your needs. So, you don’t have to carry an extra bag of delicacies on your shoulders. It is enough to have three pieces of bread: one - to eat yourself, another - in reserve, the third - in order to give it to someone who has nothing to eat. Save your strength: do not waste it on the pursuit of the unnecessary. Save time: do not spend more time resting than necessary. Excessive rest is already idleness. The idler does not live. Better to be wrong than lounge away one's life. Better to go in the wrong direction than to stand still. Better to get hit than to watch a fair battle on the outside. It is better to lose what is needed than to chase the unnecessary. Life is a battle; and in battle one must know the measure of each movement. Those who cannot do this have already lost.



The warrior must be ready to die. He should not be afraid of death. It must be remembered, but without fear. Moreover, in the final analysis it cannot be avoided. Therefore, accustom yourself to the thought of death. Live on the edge of your open grave. Maybe you will lie in it in many years, or maybe today. Therefore, be ready for this at any hour. Try not to leave dirt behind. Be human. The world after you should remain cleaner, not dirtier. Otherwise you have lived in vain.



No one can avoid mistakes. There are no perfect people. Therefore, everyone inevitably leaves dirty footprints behind. But try to leave as few as possible. It is possible. Don't leave them on purpose; do not allow yourself to leave them. There will be enough without that. But this is not the same thing - leaving behind a few random footprints or a sea of mud in which you deliberately splashed. Try not to make mistakes. It is impossible to live without them; but if you do not try to live without them, then they will not decrease. If you allow yourself to make mistakes, even occasionally, indulging yourself, then you do not recognize yourself as a warrior. This cannot be called an effort to live with dignity. There can be no indulgences here. A sword with a flaw in forging is a bad sword, a vessel with a hole is a bad vessel, food with added dirt is bad food. It's not about the deeds, it's about you. I'm talking about conscience. It is not stained by an unintentional error; but it does not know indulgences. It rots from them. Remember this.



It is impossible to correct the mistake you made. What's done is done. You can't go back to yesterday and make your torn clothes whole. It can be repaired, but the trace will remain anyway. You cannot erase from reality and from memory what happened. But you can do it differently next time. It is a waste of energy trying to fix what you can't fix. And don't run from what you did. Realize it, comprehend, feel, eat this bitterness. If you are to blame for something, then you are to blame. So now it will remain forever. It's you; but you cannot run away from yourself. Do not run away from bitterness - but also do not let yourself be choked by it. Remember your mistakes - but don't live within them. Live with the good that you can do.



Fear mistakes as much as you would injure your face while making your way through thickets. You can get hurt and even cripple - but this does not mean that you should not go forward. Life is dangerous, the path is dangerous. These thickets cannot be bypassed or cut down. But if you stop you will stop living. So, take courage and go. And it is better to get hurt walking towards a worthy goal than wandering without meaning.



You walk and you will not walk your path without pain. Only unreasonable people hope so. And trying to avoid pain, they will receive many painful wounds from life. Do not be like that. Don't look for pain: why do you need it? But if it exists, endure it with dignity. Do not run from one sharp stone over another sharp stone. This is stupid. Grit your teeth and go where you went. If you run away from pain, you will not be able to follow the chosen path. There is no path without pain. Mistakes are also painful. And if not, then you have no conscience. Work is also painful. But nothing can be done without working. The battle is also painful. But there are no battles without wounds. And someone else's pain is also your pain. And if not, then you have no heart.



If you feel bad, accept it. For some reason, a person always feels bad. Only a corpse does not feel bad. When you can fix something in a worthy way - do it; if you can't, be patient. There are situations when nothing can be done. But make no mistakes. Do not take your fear, your laziness or your folly for despair. If fixing a situation is dangerous or difficult, this does not mean that it cannot be fixed or that it should not be done. If there is anything you can do, don’t humble yourself. Once you get used to humility, you become weak. Once you become weak, you cannot be a warrior. Without learning to endure what cannot be fixed, you also cannot be a warrior. Be able to distinguish between one and the other.



A warrior sometimes loses battles - but he does not refuse to fight. He is a warrior. Life is a struggle. He who refuses to struggle does not live. So, struggle. The principle is: to be a warrior or not to be at all. Such is a man, and no one will change that. If the world did not need this, then instead of people it would be inhabited by some other creatures.



One must be able to accept the reality. He who does not know how to do this is weak. Finding himself in the middle of a waterless desert, he will get angry and say to himself: "Why am I not on the river bank?" When he is in trouble, he will lose his peace of mind and will shout: "Why me and not someone else?" This is unworthy behavior. It is ugly and meaningless. If you feel bad, do not allow such cowardice. Realize the given and do your job. Even if you cannot remain calm inside, still restrain yourself. Nonsense has never rescued anyone from trouble. When you need to be strong, you should not waste yourself on fainthearted lamentation. Pull yourself together and fight.



The pain that comes from within is immeasurably stronger than the pain that torments the body. The pain of the soul is the main torment of every person. It most likely breaks people, most likely drives them crazy. Learn to fight it. If there is a reason for it, it cannot be overcome. But often nothing can be done about the cause. Therefore, to fight the pain of the soul means to be able to endure it. We must not allow it to overwhelm your mind and paralyze your will. It is not simple. But we need to learn this. Your pain is part of you; but this part should not prevail over the whole. Remember that you belong to the world and to people. Don't let your pain take over what is bigger than you. This means, do not let it control your will, the work of which goes beyond the boundaries of you. Pain shouldn't stop you from fulfilling your duty.



Duty is duty. It's beyond doubt. You can doubt it before you took it upon yourself. Then there should be no doubt. Give all of yourself to your obligation. You also need to think about whether you can fulfil it. When you accepted it, then there is no turning back or to the side. The difficulty and danger of fulfilling duty do not cancel it. If in order to fulfill it you must go into the fire, go. This is the principle. You cannot change it. By refusing to fulfill your duty, you will give up yourself. So, you will kill yourself more surely than fire would kill you. A man will be left with an empty shell. What good is he who is unable to fulfill his duty? Who is he? He is nobody. He can't do anything. There are no such warriors.



All have The Great Oughtness. This is the duty for the fulfillment of which all humans live. For its sake, we are all warriors. In addition to it, each person can also have personal obligations. The Great Oughtness is given at birth. The person chooses his personal duty himself. It embodies the mind, soul and will of the individual. It is impossible that two duties contradict each other. An sentient person will not undertake a duty contrary to the Great Oughtness. But if this happens to someone, then he should fulfill his personal duty. This is necessary in order to remain yourself. From the smallest to the largest. He who is not able to fulfill his personal duty will not be able to follow the Great Oughtness. One must be able to live in such a way that the two duties do not contradict. It should be like this: first – the main one, and the other must be verified according to it. It may seem that this is not particularly difficult. In reality, living like this is not an easy art.



You have everything you need. It's in you. Nature has given you everything so that you can be who you should be. Never forget about it. You have will in abundance, and strength, and courage, and everything else that is necessary for a man and a warrior. You were made that way. Therefore, do not justify your weakness by the lack of one or the other. It will be a lie. If you are weak, then you do not want to be strong. Admit it to yourself. Such weakness is shameful. But this is not the end. The path is the path. You should go ahead. You must learn to be what a warrior needs to be. Self-deception is one of the sides of weakness of spirit; and this weakness is also imaginary. It can be overcome.



A person learns while living. He cognizes the world and himself. He learns to deal with the problems of the world and learns to deal with problems in himself. We don't become real warriors right away. You should learn to be a warrior. We must forge ourselves like a sword. Therefore, do not give up when you realize that you are not as good as you could be. It takes time to forge, harden, grind and sharpen a blade well. Everything is done gradually. This is the natural order of things. But there is no time to waste. If you are too lazy to forge a sword today you will never forge it.


The school of life is harsh. The school of a warrior is even more severe. If it's hard for you, then it should be so. Take it calmly. Body and soul get painful blows - be patient. It doesn't happen otherwise. There are many who, whining, rush back and forth, trying to avoid blows. But they will not succeed. And in addition to the pain of blows, they receive the torment of fear and torment of vexation. They are to blame for this themselves. This is from a lack of courage.



If nothing hurts you, it won't last long. When you go into battle, you will be hurt again. And if you don't fight, you will be hurt by something else. A living person is always in pain, because he is a living person. This must be understood, and one must get used to it. Understand that it hurts you because you are a living person. Here's an important lesson. Whoever has mastered it has learned a lot.



It hurts if you are alive. This means that the cause of your pain is your very existence. The reason is that you are alive. But man is more than a body. Therefore, you cannot get rid of the pain by killing yourself. If you do that, you will the corpse, which does not feel pain, and separately - you, who still feels pain. You cannot hide from suffering in death.

Only those people do this who believe everything is too simple. In fact, your suffering is mostly a reflection of sufferings of people and the world. And this is true for everyone. The sufferings of people are endlessly reflected in each other - as if mirrors are reflecting them, turning each of them into a thousand new ones. Therefore, it is useless to try to save yourself from sufferings alone. It won't work. It is impossible for a human to achieve this. It is arranged differently and is intended for something else.



If a baby, barely born, falls to the ground strewn with sharp stones, it hurts. We are all like that. It is impossible not to suffer, having been born in the world of pain. That is why the reason for our suffering is in our life. That is why one cannot escape suffering. This means that we must help the world to get rid of suffering. And it won't work if people don't get better. So, we need to help them to become better. Then there will be less evil and pain in the world; and over time, both people and the world will become more perfect. This is what you need to strive for. This is the Great Oughtness.



Remember, the only possible way to get rid of pain is to get rid of the pain of others. Whoever says that this is not true is blind. Pain blinded him. He thinks that man is born in order to grow a thick skin for himself. Thus, he expects not to be burned by the fires of suffering burning everywhere. And I say that it is better to extinguish these fires. It is very difficult - but possible. The path of personal deliverance seems easier - but it is impossible. He only multiplies suffering. He nurtures pride in himself, and after it - hatred. This path leads nowhere. He only increases the evil in the world. You cannot extinguish one fire of suffering by kindling others.



If you know the aim, then it will be much easier for you. Take it easy; be aware of yourself in relation to the aim. Then act. Throw unnecessary; keep only the essentials with you. Put away the hope that you can rest. Realize that you are in the middle of a battle. Realize that you were born to fight. Cast out your hatred and pride. There are the same people as you are in front of you. You should understand that you are not fighting with them. Your opponent is what oppresses and devours them. Your opponent is what kills them: their sleep and illusion of evil. You should understand that. Then you can fight properly.



Be patient. The impatient person is his own enemy. He erodes himself like a tree beetle. The impatient has all his soul in bites. And when he takes the sword, his hands are shaking. He's a bad warrior. You should be patient in order to achieve victory through a hail of painful blows. And in order to do a difficult task properly, you also need to have patience - so as not to abandon it or not to take the wrong step. Patience will temper the sword of your will. And for the fulfillment of the Great Oughtness, great patience is needed. Anyone who believes that the world cannot be improved is blind. Anyone who believes that the world can be improved quickly is hardly smart. The world can be improved, and this is a great work, many years and more than one generation of soldiers. This is so, and we must come to terms with it. You will not see the result of your struggle in your present life. It is like death to those who are impatient. So, learn to be patient.



Others follow you. If you manage to do even the smallest bit of good, it will be a little easier for them, and they will be able to do more. It will be even easier for those who follow them. This is how the world changes. You need a miracle to change it differently. But a warrior does not expect miracles. He creates a new world by himself. Working, struggling, dying in order to give others the opportunity to do more, he does something more than a miracle. This is because he is human.



Always act like a warrior. Remember that everything that happens to you is a step along the path of a warrior. Don't do unnecessary things. Don't strive for what you don't need. Understand the warrior's needs. Do not be afraid of anything. However, don't take risks when the risk is not justified. Do not seek peace - but be calm. A warrior needs calmness. It enlightens the mind and prevents mistakes. Win peacefully and die peacefully if you should. In any situation, keep yourself in control. Even if tears flow from pain, don't let your mind drown in them. Go where you go. Do your duty. If there is a mountain on the way, and you cannot get around it, do not be afraid to rest your shoulder against it. Just a little, but you can move it. Never mind the mockery. Do not believe if someone says that the way you live is wrong. A warrior will not say like this, and the warrior's path could not be judged by those who are not warriors. Remember who you are and why you exist - after all, everything else flows from this.



Your victory is the victory of all people. Many warriors are fighting for it - and one day it will be achieved. So, remember, you cannot lose. Even if today you are defeated, it means nothing. Learn from this situation and continue to fight. Anyway, you will win. This means that you have already won. If you die, then you die victorious.



You are not alone. You are not on your own. You and other warriors, all together, are the one Great Warrior, fulfilling the Great Oughtness. Therefore, you are stronger than you might think. Therefore, the struggle will not end with your death. Therefore, your right cause will win anyway. Never forget about it.



The strength of other warriors belongs to you. You are united by a common cause. You are like flowers on different branches of the same tree. Only juices feed you. Power flows through special currents from one to another. Know how to use it. It is possible. And you yourself have more strength than you think. Nature gave it to you. Nature has equipped you enough to be a warrior. This means that weakness does not exist. It is as much an absurd illusion as evil and fear. But many give this illusion an opportunity to build a nest in their souls. This should not be allowed. Whoever wants to be strong will be strong. The power will come to him. Don't give yourself time to get strong. This is a sign of weakness. You should be strong here and now. A warrior is a warrior.



A warrior lives like a warrior. This means that someone else's rules are not for you. Live the way you need to, not the way non-warriors demand of you. Don't let their desires and their doubts guide you. Don't do extra. If you find yourself in the circle of idlers, continue your work. In the circle of liars, don't lie. If everyone condemns something that seems right to you, stand up for him. If everyone is backing away, you keep going forward. If you should do something stupid or unworthy in order to honor someone, refuse to do it. Do not be afraid of judgment. Be a warrior, not a fool for the fools. Do not follow customs that are contrary to your path. Never be afraid to join the fight: that is why you are a warrior. If a mountain is approaching the city - stand in its path. This is an act worthy of a warrior, and it will not be in vain.



You are an ordinary person. A warrior is not something extraordinary, not a rare beast. This is the natural state of man. Therefore, do not think that a warrior should look somehow special. A warrior is a state of mind and soul. You can be a man or a woman, have the most ordinary appearance, and still be a warrior. But you need to educate yourself. The appearance of a warrior can be different - but his actions must be the actions of a warrior.



You have to be humble about your needs. Nothing extra. You need to be attentive, reasonable and firm. Decisions must be carefully thought over, words must be meaningful. Promises must be kept. Give them carefully, being sure that they will not push you into unworthy actions. But if you promised something, do it anyway. Take responsibility for your words. Never lie. Even animals don't lie. Don't be worse than an animal. To save oneself in every possible way means to act in accordance with the instinct of self-preservation. This is characteristic of animals. And this means that to act according to conscience, even contrary to this instinct, is a higher stage of development. It is cowardly to run, to deceive and betray for the sake of self-preservation - this is just the highest stage of manifestation of the animal instinct in man. To overcome this, to always act according to one's obligation, is the next step, the transition from animal to human. You need to consciously choose a goal. Then you need to follow the chosen one, not giving control over yourself to animal habits. This is what man does.



Life is needed in order to strive for a worthy goal. Saving one's life cannot be such a goal, because life is not given for its own sake. It would be pointless. You should see the aim. We must strive for it. Then life will make sense. You cannot turn from the path out of fear. You cannot save life at the cost of giving up your aim. Then death will make sense.



It's simple. You see the aim and go for it. Everything is very simple. Understand that. Choose a worthy aim and do not be tarnished by unworthy methods of achieving it. They will kill it. You will not achieve what you were striving for. Therefore, only go on a worthy path. When you have a choice, don't hesitate. If you should take a bad path to achieve your aim in one day, and a worthy one to achieve it in a thousand years, do not hesitate to choose a worthy path. At the end of another path there is no aim at all. There is an illusion similar to it. In fact, a warrior has no choice. His choice has already been made. He always knows where to go and how to act. He has one way. A good warrior does not notice the forked roads.



The higher the aim, the more justified the life and death of the one walking. The highest aim is the Great Oughtness. This is what people live for. Everything else good and worthy is accomplished on the way to this goal. Other good goals are lesser streams in the stream of the Great Oughtness. Moving in any of them, you move towards their common goal. This must always be remembered and realized. Otherwise, it is easy to go astray and from the stream of clean water, imperceptibly for yourself, move into the stream of mud. You should live in such a way that your smallest deed contains the meaning of the great aim. Then there will be no trifles in your life. Then suffering for one word or one movement will not be in vain. Then every breath you take will be meaningful.



Be like an arrow flying towards a target through fire. If it achieves its aim – it’s good; if it burns along the way, it will not burn in vain. This is how one should live. The arrow does not turn out of the way and does not stop in front of a wall of fire, and does not stop in front of a rock, although it knows that hitting it will break it to pieces. Don't be worse than a thing. You are human. To be stronger than an animal and a thing is the least that you have to do and what you can do in order to remain human.


Taking care of yourself the most is the source of selfishness. Such a person has little chance of remaining a worthy person. Plus, it makes him weak. He starts to be afraid. He lives in constant fear. And as the result the soul rots and the mind becomes one-eyed. Fear for others - only it does not disgrace the warrior. But fears for others should not push him into unworthy deeds. You cannot do good through evil. A good result will be imaginary. In fact, nothing good will come of it. But when it becomes obvious, nothing can be fixed. The worthy cannot grow out of the unworthy. Only those who do not want to think will not understand this.



Giving up on an erroneous or bad intention is not a sign of weakness. Man is imperfect. He does not know everything thoroughly and may be wrong. Giving up what you think is right because of fear - that is weakness. To stick to the wrong out of stubbornness is foolish, irresponsible and unworthy. Only the word given can justify such an act. Then it is not stubbornness, but duty. It must be fulfilled. If the one to whom you gave your word did not set you free, do it. It cannot be otherwise. So be careful about your promises. Don't trap yourself. The best thing is to do what you think is right without any promises. You don't need to drag yourself along your path by force. Just go.



Learn all your life. The more you learn and understand, the better your path becomes. Those who are prideful, lazy, indifferent and foolish do not want to learn. They won't become warriors. To know what's best, you need to know more. To be able, you need to know. Always learn. Learn even a minute before death. There is no good warrior without learning. Getting ready to die, learn life. Seeing the blade piercing your body, learn to feel. When dying, learn the right attitude towards death. Don't miss the opportunity to learn something worthwhile.



If you know little, you will not understand the Great Oughtness. You can't make a blind choice. You need to understand what you choose. You can't go blind: you will fall to pieces. We must distinguish between good and evil. They are often mixed: therefore, it is necessary to be able to distinguish their shades. This must be learned. We must learn to see people. We must learn to see ourselves.



There is no need for a warrior to be cruel. You need to be firm in your path. The cliff is not cruel - but the waves of the sea break on its firmament. You should be like him. If someone breaks against your determination and your will, it is because he himself wanted it. A warrior must be able to resist the pressure of the entire ocean. And he doesn't have to hate the ocean. He should just do his job. This is the basis of the struggle. This is the first skill of a warrior: to resist. If you know how to resist, then you will overcome the path, and you will die with dignity. If you survive, you will win. There is no need for hatred or cruelty to resist. However, firmness is sometimes needed. The soft-bodied and weak-willed will certainly be pushed out of the way. But firmness should come not from hatred and enmity, but from understanding of necessity. Firmness is sometimes like cruelty. Be careful. Don't cross the line.



He who is driven by hatred is not a warrior. A true warrior is driven by love. He is not fighting against something, but for something. He does not conquer but protects. You can't fight for the world and people if you don't love them. The basis of the Great Oughtness is love. Remember this, otherwise you will turn into an enraged beast. Hate is destruction. Don't let it into your heart. It will destroy your heart. And love will give strength to resist anything. The ability to love is more important than the art of fighting. If there is no love, the art of fighting has nothing to rely on. Then it is like a fortress built on quicksand. You live for what you love. This is what you fight for. And if not, then nothing makes sense. Love is the food of life. No food - no strength. No strength - no struggle. There is no struggle - there is no point in existing. Therefore, everything is based on love. For its sake man was created.



A warrior should not be like a leaf blown by the wind. He has a law of honor by which he lives. This law consists of knowledge, conscience and love. This is where strength, courage, perseverance, firmness, patience, attentiveness, kindness, solicitude, honesty, loyalty, hard work, modesty and other good qualities flow. The meaning of life flows from this natural law. This law is the source and the basis for motivation and action. Everything else is false. Hatred, cruelty, selfishness, pride, greed, intemperance, cowardice, weakness, laziness, cynicism and other ailments of the soul stem from the false. The natural law embodies the mind, soul and heart of a warrior. This is a human being. This is the true foundation of our life.



Man is united with the world in which he lives. This means that the whole world is you. The world belongs to you. There is nothing to conquer. Therefore, a warrior does not conquer, but protects and improves. This is precisely his business. The one who seeks to conquer gradually ceases to be human. He turns into a monster that devours people. Do not seek to be a conqueror. A warrior will have something to fight and die for without it.



Nothing can be done well without discipline. Every single person cannot be the most intelligent and knowledgeable: therefore, one must be able to obey those who know and can do more. Unity is a tremendous power. But it cannot be where everyone wants to play only their own melody. If you are not acting alone, be disciplined. It's necessary. He who does not know how to learn this is internally weak in front of his weaknesses. He's unreliable. He is a worthless warrior. He is a source of concern and danger for others. You can't rely on such a person.



Self-discipline is the foundation of discipline in the community. It is the cornerstone of warrior's actions. Whether he is not alone or alone, without self-discipline he can do little or nothing. It fosters courage, patience, caution, moderation, perseverance, calmness. Raise it in yourself. Practice self-discipline. It's hard. It might feel bad and painful, - endure and exercise. A person who has mastered self-discipline and self-control is already half a warrior. Swords blunt at him. A bad but disciplined person is nicer than a good but undisciplined person. A warrior cannot be without self-discipline. He is pathetic without it. Without it, he looks like a bag of holes with straw. Without it, he is of no use even to support a fence, far from being useful in a battle. Remember this.



The essence of the warrior's path is to live and die for a worthy aim. This is the very essence. It must be realized. And we must realize that a person is born in order to be a warrior. To live differently is to live wrong. Taking care of yourself the most is trading the whole world for a piece of slowly rotting meat. A worthy aim is to strive to protect, help, fix, make people and the world better. It makes sense to exist for such an aim.

60 questions about the Teaching of the United Temple


1. Is the Teaching of the United Temple a religion?

It is not a religion. Religious teaching implies worship of some supernatural powers. There is a cult; (most commonly) priests, who are acting as mediators between believers and the mentioned powers and are running a cult; believers who worship supernatural powers in one form or another; there are various objects of worship, sacred places and sacred objects. There is nothing like this is in the Teaching. It fundamentally rejects belief in supernatural and miracles, in other words, in interference of supernatural forces, in everything that happens against the laws of Nature. The Teaching shares materialistic views, while expanding the meaning of the concept of “materialism”. The Teaching recognizes the existence of two other worlds (levels or plans of the Universe) in addition to the material world: the world of energy and the world of Spirit. However, these worlds have nothing supernatural within. They are closely connected to the material world and are subject to the laws of Nature - laws of cause to effect, evolution, etc. These two worlds are more difficult for scientists to research than the physical world - but it is possible. The time will come when science will prove their existence, develop methods for research and create necessary tools for this. Having a source of information in the world of energy, the Teaching has information that modern science is not yet able to verify. Therefore, after casual reading (and largely due to terminological difficulties), it may seem that it is religious or occult. In reality, this is not true. According to the Teaching, everything in the Universe obeys natural laws and is available for scientific research. The presence of elements found in various religions (reincarnation, etc.) in the Teaching is explained by the fact that a religious worldview often gives mystical features to real facts and explains them with supernatural causes. In other words, these are real elements of the world, which were included in various religious teachings one way or another, were rethought and interpreted accordingly. They have a different explanation in the Teaching - as natural phenomena and patterns that obey the laws of Nature and have nothing to do with mysticism.


2. What is the source of information that makes up the Teaching?

The Teaching was given to people by the God of Wisdom through his prophet.  I the Teaching the God of Wisdom is called Emere, but he is also known in world spiritual traditions under many other names - Thoth, Odin, Hermes, Quetzalcoatl, etc.

In the Teaching the gods are not supernatural beings. The God of Wisdom is an energetic being who has information about everything that was, is and will possibly be in the Universe. When an urgent need arises he helps sentient races who have difficulty in learning the Truth and transfers a sufficient amount of knowledge enough to overcome the crisis to them. Mankind has also received his revelations, and more than once. However, this fact does not mean that other prophets of various religions and teachings also received revelations from him. All the prophets of Emere belonged to one spiritual tradition, one teaching; presently it is called the Teaching of the United Temple.


3. How is the Teaching of the United Temple related to traditional hermetism?

What is called "traditional Hermetism", in fact, is an echo of the Teaching itself, which appeared from the depths of centuries from the previous revelation of Emere (Hermes). The prophet who accepted that revelation eventually turned into a mythical figure, was identified with the source of the revelation, and called Hermes Trismegistus. His teachings themselves have undergone such significant distortions over time that they have changed almost beyond recognition. The present revelation not only restores the teaching of Hermes in its true form, but also significantly expands it - that is, it contains much more information than any of the previous revelations.

The Teaching does not use the hermetic texts included in the Hermetic collection of writings as its sources. It does not recognize them as authoritative, since their content is a mixture of more or less distorted fragments of the Teaching and completely extraneous elements, combined with speculation and incorrect interpretations. They have little to do with the real Teachings of Hermes. Instead, the Teaching is based on its own collection of texts - the Pandect “Erma”.


4. Is it true that the appearance of the Teaching was predicted?

If there is a desire, then in the numerous predictions of soothsayers and clairvoyants of all kinds, you can see some kinds of signs. Usually this is based on various speculations. As for the Teaching, no purposeful search has ever been conducted. There is only one that is well-known:

“Long awaited he will never return
In Europe, he will appear in Asia:
One of the league issued from the great Hermes,
And he will grow over all the Kings of the East”.

                              Michelle Nostradamus. Centuries, X, LXXV


5. Why is it called the “Teaching of the United Temple”?

This name was given to it by Emere. The concept of “temple” in this case does not have any religious content. It means the entire Universe, the whole world, in which all particles are united, like organs and cells of one organism. This word emphasizes a special relationship to this great unity, the living organism of our Creator. The Temple of the Teaching is Nature, and it does not require any worshiping. Understanding, love and work are required instead for the benefit of the world and people.


6. What is the history of the Teaching?

Throughout the existence of mankind, the Teaching has been given to people 27 times (counting the last modern revelation to us). Each time, its task was to help mankind overcome a deep spiritual crisis. It always remained the property of a limited circle of initiates, but at the same time it had a significant impact on society in indirect ways - through philosophical, ethical, scientific concepts, art, etc. Over time knowledge was distorted, lost, or the circle of initiates was destroyed, or continuity was interrupted for some other reason, and the Teaching disappeared in order to be reborn again when required.

The first revelation took place more than 250,000 years ago, the next-to-last revelation took place several thousand years ago. Due to such a long time, the history of the Teaching can hardly be restored and studied according to archaeological data or other methods available to modern science.

However, the Teaching has its own sources of information and individual fragments of its history are described in the texts of the pandect.

The history of the last revelation of Teaching began in 1994. It differs from the previous ones as it contains a larger amount of information, is not addressed to a narrow circle of initiates, but to all humanity, and is the final in a series of revelations. There will be no more revelations.


7. When and by whom was it founded?

It was founded by the prophet Atarchat, on the 1st of March, 1996, - almost two years after the beginning of the revelation.

The Prophet was familiar with the Teaching in his past life. Between the past and present physical lives, during his life in the world of energy, he was offered to transfer the last revelation to people in the upcoming life. It was about time and it was inevitable. He agreed and for many hundreds of years he was preparing for this and waiting for the time of revelation to come and, thus, for his birth. He was born in 1972, and began to receive the revelation shortly after he turned 21.


8. What is the role of the prophet in the Teaching?

First of all, it should be noted that the term “prophet” in the sense of “the one who receives revelation from higher powers” and “prophet” in the sense of “soothsayer, foreteller of the future” should not be confused. According to religious and mythological views, both of these terms often coincide; but in this case the first of them is meant. The founder of the teaching is a prophet, as he receives the revelation from the God of Wisdom. The role of the prophet is fundamental. He receives and transmits revelation to people, that is, information of the Teaching, knowledge about people, the world and the Universe. He is the highest authority in all matters related to the Teaching; in these matters his opinion cannot be challenged. He manages the affairs of the Teaching, establishes the rules for the followers, he personally teaches, and also writes the pandekt. The Prophet is a key figure for the present and future Teachings, his support and the highest authority is above the authority of other Teachers.


9. What is the pandect and what is its significance?

The pandect “Erma” (which means “foundation”, “foundation”, “source”) is a collection of texts telling about the doctrine of the Teaching, its philosophical, moral, ethical and practical aspects, containing stories about its history, biography of some of his followers who lived in past times, as well as the speeches of the gods, the instructions of the prophet and other materials. It only includes what is written by the prophet. The Pandect, along with the living word of the prophet, is the information base of the Teaching. After the death of the prophet, he will remain the most authoritative source, the highest authority, a model according to which certain concepts of the Teaching, establishments, statements and actions will be verified.

Reading the pandect is highly recommended for each follower. The pandect is the most valuable source of knowledge about the Teaching; therefore, regular reading and study of these texts is recommended to all followers. The pandect is still being written. At present there are three books, one of them, Epistole, is being expanded with new messages. Over time, the pandect will include several more books.


10. Why are the names of the books included in the pandect, terminology associated with the pandect, its name and names of the mitevmas taken from the Greek language?

The Mitevmas dictated by people bear the names given to them by those people. The Mithevmas, dictated by the gods, initially had no names, except one: Emere himself gave a name to the Mithevma "Eosfor." This is an ancient Greek word; therefore, it was decided to give the rest of the Mithevmas of the Gods and the Mithevmas of Atarchat names taken from the same language. And the terminology for the pandect in general was developed on the same basis to make it unified.


11. What does the emblem of the Teaching symbolize?

It consists of two elements. In the center of it is a symbol called the “sign of the white fire”. The White Fire is a good power emanating from the world of Spirit; light that illuminates the path and helps him to overcome difficulties and struggle. The sign of the white fire is surrounded by a chain of twenty-seven links, according to the number of revelations given by the God of Wisdom to humanity. Each link in the chain is connected to the previous and next, which means continuity in the Truth.

The first and last links are also connected; this symbolizes the fact that the last revelation was given in the same place where the first was (at the same geographical point). Thus the past came into contact with the future, as a closing of the circle - there will be no new revelations.

The color of the logo itself and its background is of no fundamental importance.

In addition to the one described above, there is another emblem - less official, so to speak. It is an image of a fiery flower breaking through a stone cracked under its pressure. This emblem is based on the words from the Mitevma “The Way”, where the Teaching is described as the flower of Amra, an ocean of white fire that unfolds when it is extracted from the depths of oblivion.


12. How is the Teaching passed to people?

In a usual way. Through media (in particular, the Internet), through literature, communication etc.
According to the teaching, you cannot impose your views on anyone, even if you consider them to be true. Therefore, an aggressive or intrusive form of propaganda is unacceptable. Anyone can freely read published materials; as for personal communication, the followers of the Teaching speak about it only with those who want it themselves.


13. What are the aims of the Teaching?

Its natural and fundamental aim is to give people the Truth. However, of course, this is a general answer. To specify, then we can the following

The Teaching is not just a set of postulates, not just information. It is also a morality based on its philosophy. Teaching condemns violence, lies, immorality. It says that man is good by nature, that he is an important part of the Universe, and is born in order to learn, improve, create and love.

Therefore, the purpose of the Teaching is not only the enlightenment of people, but also a practical change of the world for the better. It is necessary to fight evil, to overcome hostility, racial, national, political and spiritual discord, immorality, crime and other negative phenomena that are destructive to society. We need to protect our planet, its nature, its wealth, life itself. One must be prepared that humanity, having gone beyond its planet, will once meet other intelligent races in the Universe; and it should be clear that relations between them, as well as relations between the peoples of the Earth, should not be based on xenophobia and hostility, but on mutual understanding, respect and cooperation. All of the above are the practical aims of the Teaching.

What is more, the purpose of the Teaching is to facilitate the evolution of the Creator, that is, our Universe. Through intelligent races as particles of the Creator, through their knowledge of reality and their moral choice, the Creator is perfected. This is precisely the meaning of humanity's search for the Truth; the Teaching exists for this reason, and it is known not only by humanity, but also many other rational races. The main and final aim of the Teaching - to promote the evolution of the Creator. It is normal for all intelligent races to follow it, no matter who and where in the Universe they are.


14. Does the Teaching have an esoteric level of initiation?

No. At the time of previous revelations, the Teaching was almost completely esoteric; only a limited circle of initiates had this knowledge, from a few people to several thousand people. Now the situation has changed exactly in the opposite direction: the Teaching is intended for all people, it spreads completely openly, and there is no esoteric level in it.


15. Why do the followers of the Teaching call themselves the “Eternal Nation”?

The reason is that the Teaching is not limited in time and space. That is, it exists not only now, and not only for humanity . The truth is known to all the intelligent races of the Universe; they have known it and will know it in future. And since there is only one Truth, the knowledge of it leads all intelligent races to a single worldview. Some races come to it exclusively by their own efforts, while others - as, for example, humanity - receives revelation from the God of Wisdom. But in any case, it is always the same philosophy-teaching. Its followers have existed since the first intelligent races arose and began their path of knowledge in the Universe, and will exist until the time for transformation of the Creator comes.

Thus, not only people who have accepted the Teaching, but also representatives of other intelligent races throughout the Universe, in the past, present and future belong to the Eternal Nation. And not only those of them who live in physical bodies, but also those who are in the world of energy between incarnations or have already completely left the physical body also belong to the Eternal Nation. All of them are one nation, the people of Truth. The Eternal Nation is a community not only supranational, but also supraspecific, united in spaces, times and worlds.


16. Can any person become a member of the Teaching? Are there any restrictions?

Any sane person who has chosen this path can join the Teaching, regardless of skin color, nation, or gender. There is only one restriction - age: a person can join when he is 21 years old. This age is considered the age of majority in the Teaching, when a person is already fully responsible for his decisions and actions.


17. What is necessary in order to join the Teaching?

First of all, you need to familiarize yourself with it to understand what it is about and what it teaches. If, having understood this, a person recognizes that the Teaching is true and accepts it as his path, then we can talk about joining it. Such a decision should be free, deliberate and conscious, made on the basis of knowledge about the Teaching. Joining the Teaching blindly or by force without a clear idea of what you accept, is unacceptable.

Then, a firm intention is necessary to follow the Teaching, to realize its principles in life. Otherwise, accepting it does not make sense. No one requires to become an ideal follower immediately upon joining it in every single detail. It always takes time to change yourself and your life. However, you need to desire it, you need to try, make efforts in this direction.

In the Teaching, theory is inextricably linked with practice, that is, you cannot accept it as a system of views, but refuse to put it into practice. You need to be aware of this in your decision when deciding to join the Teaching.

And, of course, full trust in the Teacher who teaches you and full trust in the prophet and pandect is necessary. This is the basis of following the Teaching: you cannot learn from someone you do not trust, and you cannot confidently follow the path if you doubt that this is the right path.


18. How does the process of joining the Teaching look like? How does a person quit it?

A person joins the Teaching through a very simple procedure: the acceptor (Teacher) asks the applicant a series of questions, and he gives answers to them, thereby confirming that he is aware of his actions and that his decision is firm. Leaving the Teaching is even simpler: it is enough to simply declare your departure. No obstacles are created.


19. Is it possible to be excluded from the Teaching and why?

You can be excluded for not following it. If a person joins the Teaching, but does not try to change, does not intend to deepen his understanding of the Teaching, does not want to follow its rules and does not strive for his goals, this means that he does not really need the Teaching, and then he can be excluded.

The Teaching is not only a worldview, but also practical action in life; it cannot be followed purely nominally. He who does not seek to follow the Teaching has nothing to do in the Teaching. In addition, you can be excluded for the deliberate and demonstrative commission of acts condemned by the Teaching, the deliberate and demonstrative manifestation of disrespect for the Teacher, and so on.


20. What signs of membership in the Teaching should its followers have?

There are currently no such signs. In the future they will appear, but wearing them will not be mandatory.


21. Why do people accept new names when joining the Teaching? Is it obligatory?

Not necessary; and not everyone accepts a new name. Those who accept them do this if they want to emphasize that a new important stage of life begins when they join the Teaching, like new birth.


22. What is asked from a person who has joined the Teaching?

It is required to implicitly follow the Teaching. You need to trust the Teacher, learn the Teaching, learn to live by its principles, try to benefit people and the world. It sounds concise and simple; however, these brief formulations mean affords of a whole human life, because it is far from simple to put them into practice.


23. Should the followers believe blindly in the Teaching?

They should trust their Teacher. An apprentice comes to a Master for knowledge, thereby recognizing that the Master is more knowledgeable in the Truth than he is. Learning requires trust - otherwise it becomes impossible; so in an ordinary school a student trusts a teacher. However - again, like an ordinary school - the Teaching does not prohibit thinking. An apprentice should think the materials over, reflect on them, try to understand them better. The most important element of learning are the questions that an apprentice asks the Teacher. It is necessary to ask, to clarify, to seek clarification of incomprehensible moments. In addition, an apprentice should not consider himself satisfied only with what he learns from the Teacher. He should also study himself the world and people, observe, compare the results of his observations with what the Teaching says, comprehend, draw conclusions. Cognition is also one's own work and not just an acquisition of ready-made knowledge. The Teaching provides the basis and indicates the most important landmarks; this knowledge must be combined with personal active learning which is the main part - a person learns and deepens his understanding all his life. The teacher, when necessary, helps in personal development. From the point of view of the Teaching, he can explain what needs to be clarified, suggest, point out mistakes and help to avoid misconceptions. Cognition is a collaborative work of an apprentice and the Teacher, an active work of thought, the assimilation of knowledge received from the Teaching and constant learning due to personal observations and personal experience.


24. Does the Teaching require regular donations from its followers?

It does not require. Voluntary contributions to the Teaching are allowed, but they may not be accepted from everyone, and not always. Here a number of factors are important: the degree of commitment to the Teaching, the sincere desire to help, the financial situation of the follower, the likelihood that due to the contribution he will have friction with his family, and other possible problems. The purpose of the Teaching, is not an enrichment at the expense of the followers. From the moment of the beginning of the revelation to the present moment (i.e. for 20 years) not a single contribution or donation has been accepted.


25. How are the most faithful and active followers of the Teaching rewarded?

There are no rewards. Loyalty to the Teaching and the desire to be useful to it do not need to be encouraged, because this is the norm. Followers should be what they are because they understand how necessary and important it is and not because they expect rewards. The reward for loyalty to the chosen path, for work for the good of the world and people and for the struggle against the negative phenomena of life -is own spiritual improvement and good future of the world. Anyone who does not understand this and is waiting for some special reward is self-serving and his following the Teaching is not sincere. It should be noted that the Teaching does not seek to exploit its followers at all. Help in any of the Teachings' affairs, like a cash contribution, may not be accepted from every follower, and not always.


26. Are there any regular ritual actions performed by the followers of the Teaching?

There are no such actions. Religious rituals are absent in the Teaching as a concept, since it is not a religion.


27. What practices does the Teaching use?

Practices in the usual sense of the word - prayer, meditation, energy, etc. - are not used in the Teaching. According to the Teaching, the best and, at the same time, the most difficult practice is the right life. This means - life according to the principles of the Teaching, life in accordance with its ideas about the morality and purpose of man. You need to try to live like this, you need to learn this. A simple example. Teaching rejects lies. So, you need to try to live so that every word you say is true. However, this is not easy. Refusal of lies creates a lot of problems in life - and to overcome them you need to develop yourself and show patience, perseverance, willpower and other positive qualities. The same is true of other moral principles. This is precisely what the Teaching calls practice. Cognition, rejection of the wrong and following the right, developing the necessary qualities in oneself, the fulfillment of what is good for the world and people. This changes a person for the better and gives him opportunities and strength to change for the better of the world. More effective practices aimed at self-improvement do not exist.


28. What is the "purity of the path"?

To keep the path clean is to strictly follow that religion or teaching that you have accepted without introducing any elements from other worldviews into it.

Nowadays, many do not want to choose a specific path for themselves, preferring to borrow and mix elements of different religions and teachings, often incompatible. And even to those who choose one specific path, i.e. a particular religion or teaching, it can be difficult to part with some elements of one’s previous views or resist the temptation to borrow a favorite or convenient moment from another worldview. But introducing elements from other teachings into any doctrine introduces chaos into the interdependence of its own elements and violates its internal logic, thereby reducing its value as a spiritual path to zero. Therefore, in the Teaching this is not allowed. Anyone who has chosen the Teaching as its path should follow only it, without mixing in anything borrowed from other teachings. Keeping the path pure is very important. Only in this way can one be firm in following it and achieve success in one's spiritual fulfillment.


29. What seems to be the most difficult in following the Teaching?

Actually, it is the same as in following other serious teachings and religions. There are several key points that are difficult for followers.

Firstly, trust in authorities - the prophet, the Teacher. In the modern world, independence and independence in judgments is highly valued. Once this was an undeniably beneficial phenomenon that contributed to the liberation of thinking and the way out of the influence of religious prejudice.

However, if it exceeds all limits it eventually turns into something harmful. This happened in this case. The freedom of thinking grew into pride and self-centeredness; a person wants to acknowledge only his personal opinion- including spiritual matters - and considers it humiliating to recognize anyone’s authority. This negative trend is expanding and intensifying. Therefore, for many people it turns out psychologically very difficult to trust their Teacher. Meanwhile, such trust is an essential element of following the Teaching.

Secondly, the purity of the path, that is, non-mixing of extraneous elements borrowed from other teachings into the Teaching is hard for many people.

This problem is similar to the previous one. Used to rely only on his own judgment, modern man seeks to form the Truth that suits him. Therefore, for this purpose many people mix elements taken out of the context of various teachings. For them it is very difficult to accept the whole doctrine set forth by someone else and to follow it strictly without introducing anything of their own.

Thirdly, following moral standards is complicated. It is not easy to change oneself for the better, to struggle with one’s own shortcomings, to abandon selfishness, lies, theft, debauchery etc. The Teaching does not require instant change from its followers. It takes time. You cannot fundamentally change overnight; and becoming a saint is completely impossible. But you need to try to overcome evil in yourself, you need to strive to change for the better. This is difficult in itself and, moreover, can greatly complicate life; however, the basic meaning of following the Teaching lies in moral perfection. Everything else can be considered as derivatives of this framework.

Fourth, overcoming what can be called the dominance of everyday life. In an endless series of daily routines, worries about home, family, work, health, etc., it’s easy to get bogged down. It takes all the attention, time, strength, deprives a person of the opportunity to devote himself to other aspects of his life, in particular, the spiritual side.

Anyone who is mired in everyday problems and chokes in them finds it hard to gain knowledge of the Truth and promote self-improvement. Life is a very serious obstacle on a spiritual path. It can be extremely difficult to find an opportunity to pay attention to both everyday life and spirituality, avoiding bias in one direction or another.

After all, if it is not good to give up spiritual life, completely replacing it with everyday life, then the reverse option is not the best. It is necessary to be able to combine them, while being guided in everyday life by spiritual principles, on which not only morality is based, and therefore practical actions, but also t understanding of one’s place in the world and the meaning of one’s existence.

These, in general terms, are the main difficult points in following the Teaching. Although these problems are actually universal in nature, and therefore, as mentioned above, they are relevant not only for the followers of the Teaching.


30. According to the Teaching, what is man's place in the world? What is his purpose?

Evolution is aimed at creating new races of intelligent beings in the Universe. The mind of the Creator is awakened in them, which through itself cognizes itself and is perfected in order to experience the further transformation and ascend to a new stage of development. The intelligent races of the Universe play a key role in the internal evolution of the Creator; without them, it would have been simply impossible. Each intelligent race is precious to the Creator, for it is its flesh, mind and soul, and it is the guarantee of its further life and development.
Humanity is one of these races. Its purpose is to learn, and on the basis of acquired knowledge to improve intellectually and morally. This is exactly what the Creator needs, and we are his particles. Thus, this is precisely the purpose of both humanity as a whole and each individual person. We live and improve so that the Creator can live and improve.


31. According to the Teaching, what is the purpose of man?

In a fundamental and final meaning, his purpose is to contribute to the perfection of the Creator. You must always remember this. This mission is a connecting thread through all human lives, no matter how many there are. If we talk about a separate earthly life, then it is perceiving the world around us, people, ourselves, and the desire to become better, overcome our vices and develop good qualities in ourselves. To do so, you do not need to move away from the world and completely immerse yourself in thoughts and spiritual exercises. While living in the world you can have more opportunities to know it and do better. You can always perceive, at any time, under any circumstances. Improving oneself morally means learning and understanding the principles of a moral life and learning to follow them, overcoming one’s shortcomings and vices. And when you perceive the world and make moral choices you benefit the world and people. In other words, you need to live so that your aspirations and actions make the world and people better not worse. In a broad sense, this is the aim of a separate earthly life. If we talk about the purpose of life in a narrower sense, then it will concern specific methods of achieving what was mentioned above. You can make a better world and people in different ways. At a minimum - to live a decent life, without lies, meanness and crime, work honestly, raise children as good people, and if possible protect the world around you. There are more targeted options, for example, devoting oneself to a particular important and necessary profession, creativity, science, environmental protection, charity, spiritual activity, even business and politics, abandoning them from dirty methods. That is, you need to find your place in life, trying to do your chosen favorite job and benefit the world and people.

In such an aspect, even a goal such as a career or making a fortune can be worthy, provided that they do not mean satisfaction of ambitions, lust for power or craving for luxury, but gaining the opportunity to bring more benefits to the world and people. That is, the main thing is good intentions, a worthy occupation and pure methods. This is what makes aims that people set for themselves in a separate life compatible with the fundamental aim of all lives - to help the Creator in its perfection.


32. According to the Teaching, each person is a warrior. What does it mean?

Life is always a struggle. According to the Teaching, it is necessary to fight with everything negative in oneself and in society, to fight for the better future for the world, people and the Creator. Therefore, each person is a warrior who goes out into the battle every day - to the battle not for his ambitions or success in some reprehensible business, but for the common good. But the good should not be accomplished through evil: this depreciates it and often turns it into the same evil. Therefore, in the Teaching, the concept of “warrior” does not mean enmity, hatred, unlawful violence, destruction, and bloodshed as a method. According to the Teaching, this means being persistent in difficulties, persistent in achieving good goals, defending justice and fighting evil (including, above all, in oneself). To be a warrior does not mean to be aggressive, cruel, does not mean to choose violence and murder as a kind of activity. A warrior is a state of mind; it is an internal force aimed at overcoming all that is evil and serving the good. For example, a doctor who saves people's lives in difficult conditions, a teacher who teaches children and overcomes the problems that arise during this, a lifeguard who helps people in distress, a law enforcement officer who fights crime, a public figure who tries to make society better, - they are all warriors. According to the Teaching, a warrior is any person who does a good deed and overcomes difficulties and obstacles. Being such a warrior is a natural condition for a person.


33. Who are the Teachers and what is their role?

These are people who know and deeply understand the Teaching, live by its principles and teach theoretical and practical aspects of the Teaching to others. Being a Teacher is a huge responsibility. He conveys the Truth to his apprentices, helps to understand the Teaching better, is a role model for them and a support in the spiritual path, helps with advice in difficult life situations, etc. The Teacher has no right to deceive the trust of apprentices, he should provide feasible moral or other possible support. Being a Teacher means devoting life to apprentices. Apprentices should trust their Teacher and deeply honor him. The relationship “Teacher- apprentice” is the basis of the inner life of the Teaching. Each follower must have a Teacher.


34. Can anyone become a Teacher?

Any follower of the Teaching who will develop necessary qualities and reach the necessary level in understanding and has a sense of responsibility can become a Teacher. To become a Teacher, you need to be a profound connoisseur of the Teaching (in fact, an expert), exemplary adhere to its principles and rules, be absolutely devoted to your work, have great strength of mind, willpower and a steady intention to devote yourself to your students.

You cannot become a teacher on your own. This status can only be obtained from another Teacher, more experienced, who knows this particular person well and sees that he is capable and ready to become a Teacher.


35. What are the foundations of the morality of the Teaching?

The morality of the Teaching is almost completely consistent with the moral standards worked out by mankind throughout its history. The texts “On Morality” says: “Murder and all violence, anger and cruelty, oppression and indifference, injustice and connivance to evil, lies and meanness, hypocrisy and vindictiveness, theft and fraud, treachery and slander, greed and extortion, cowardice and envy, laziness and parasite, rudeness and sloppiness, debauchery and unnatural fornication, pride and vanity, unbridledness and weak-heartedness, groveling and disrespect, intemperance and conceit have always been considered evil; Love and kindness, philanthropy and responsiveness, honesty and fidelity, courage and diligence, diligence and diligence, moderation and generosity, compassion and the ability to stand up for the offended one, justice and resistance to evil, the pursuit of knowledge and respect for the world, patience, attentiveness and accuracy, self-sacrifice and friendship, modesty and respectfulness, prudence and self-discipline, firmness in the face of difficulties and straightforwardness, responsibility and reliability have always considered to be good.

All these things are condemned and approved by the Teaching as well. This is its morality ”(On Morality, 5). This correspondence is explained by the fact that moral concepts flow from the Spirit, which is contained in every person and is the best part of it. No matter in what time a person lives, no matter what culture he belongs to, his Spirit is connected with the Spirit of all other people and carries moral principles common to all eras, peoples and cultures.

Together, these manifestations of the Spirit constitute the general morality of mankind. Of course, for different times and cultures there are variations and nuances that stand out from the general picture or directly contradict it; but on the whole, the moral principles by which humanity lives remain unchanged from ancient times. They flow from the Spirit, and therefore correspond to the natural norms inherent in human nature. They remain so, even if erroneous justifications arising from misconceptions about the world and man are brought under them. The Teaching gives them the right justification, based on the true picture of the world.


36. What are the prohibitions in the Teaching?

The Teaching does not prohibit anything and does not force anything, but explains what is right and what is not. It indicates what should not be done, and explains why. Whoever really wants to follow the Teaching, will create prohibitions on what the Teaching considers unacceptable or undesirable for himself. For example, it does not accept lies; and a sincere follower will forbid himself to lie. At the same time, no one demands an instant change from the followers. It takes time. If you can’t immediately change your attitude to something or your behavior, then you need to change it gradually, with due diligence and effort.

Although in some cases there are rules that every follower must follow, regardless of whether he is ready for this internally or not. For example, manifestations of disrespectful attitude towards the Teacher, manifestations of racism, hostility on national, cultural, religious, class grounds, and the like are unacceptable.


37. Does the Teaching allow the use of violence, and if so, in what cases?

The reality of life is that it is not always possible to avoid violence. It often happens that refusal to use violence against one person means to destroy another or to allow him to suffer undeservedly. Sometimes a situation arises when non-use of violence turns out to be more evil than using it. Therefore, the Teaching allows the use of violence in such cases as a defensive war, fight against crime and terrorism, self-defense, protection of a right and innocent person, etc. But even in these cases, violence cannot be fully considered good; in any case, it is evil — albeit the smallest of the two possible, but still evil — and the one who applies it assumes moral responsibility for it.


38. Are there such concepts as “sin” and “holiness” in the Teaching?

In principle, any immoral act harmful to a person or the world can be called a sin. Another thing is that, according to the Teaching, sin cannot be atoned for, i.e. it's impossible to annul it and remove the severity of its consequences. What is done is done; a perfect act cannot be erased from life, consequences cannot be undone and responsibility for it - in any case, moral - cannot be avoided. As for holiness, it is impossible to be holy - that is, perfect in your desires, thoughts and actions. All people, to one degree or another, are imperfect; everyone makes mistakes and evil deeds, intentionally or involuntarily. However, it is possible to achieve a state as close as possible to holiness, and this will mean the end of the path in the world of people and the cessation of rebirth, as it will become the limit of possible improvement in human form.


39. What is the attitude to death in the Teaching?

Man lives more than one life; therefore death is not the end of everything. It is a transition to a different level of existence, to the world of energy. Then, after some time, follows a return to the physical world and life in a new body. Therefore, death is not so terrible for the followers of the Teaching, as for those who do not believe in post-mortem or who are afraid of being doomed to eternal posthumous torment. However, this does not mean that life is of little value and that you should not value it. Life is a valuable tool for cognition and completion; it is given so that one can know and do which cannot be known and done in the world of energy. Therefore, you need to value life and, if possible, protect it. But it should be remembered that it is not a value in itself, but in the application to what it is intended for: to learn and fulfill the good. A tool is never more important than the work for which it is created. If you protect it to the detriment of work, then its existence does not make sense, and it is useless. Therefore, one should not neglect one’s life and risk it for nothing, but one should not turn its preservation into the main task. To sacrifice life for the sake of a big and good deed, for the sake of another person or people, is a worthy, morally justified act and a great merit. This moral principle applies not only to the Teaching; it is common (with possible differences in motivation) for almost all cultures throughout the history of mankind.


40. Does a person expect reward or punishment after death?

There are no higher powers that rule the afterlife and give everyone their due, just as the notorious law of karma does not exist. But there are certain laws of Nature, the action of which causes a phenomenon in the Teaching  called "personal hell."

Its essence is as follows. Being a particle of Nature, man exists according to its natural laws. However, he is endowed with free will, and therefore has the ability to act against them (within certain limits). However, his Spirit and natural energy remain focused on compliance with these laws. That is, committing an unnatural act (doing evil), a person comes into conflict with his own deep essence and his own natural energy.

This produces energy of negative quality, a kind of energy poison that accumulates over the years and poisons the energy of the body. The more evil a person does, the more he comes into conflict with the laws of Nature, the more he poisons himself. During life, the action of "energy poison" can be hidden and invisible.

After death, when the energy essence (what can be called the soul) is separated from the physical body, the negative energy accumulated over the whole life is released, and the person - that is, his energy body - begins to experience sensations that are perceived as excruciating pain (its analogue for energy body). In addition, at this time, a person is attacked by energy parasites (larvae), which during life he created around him. Using his helplessness, they begin to "tear out" the energy from his energy body, devouring it - and this adds to his torment.

This is a condition when a person suffers from the “energy poison” and the larvae devouring his energy body at the same time is called “personal hell”. This is not a punishment in the usual sense of the word, but the energy reaction of an organism to evil committed during life. We can say that a person punishes himself; so, putting our hand in the fire, we then suffer from the pain of a burn. The state of “personal hell” lasts until the “energy poison” has exhausted its negative charge and the larvae are exhausted and decay.

The time of "personal hell" depends on the amount of accumulated negative energy and the quantity and strength of the larvae; it can be hours, or it can be decades. Then the person leaves the described state and continues life in the world of energy until his next incarnation. It was “personal hell” that served as a prototype of the ideas about the afterlife and punishment that entered into various religions. As for the reward, its role is played by knowledge, positive qualities and abilities, accumulated and developed by man in life. They are not lost, but pass into the next lifes in the form of a hidden potential that can be realized and, thanks to them, a new even greater potential can be achieved. Thus, a person himself prepares what can be called an afterlife punishment or a reward throughout his life by accumulating negative and positive potential.


41. Who is the Creator?

The Creator is not a God in the religious sense of the word. This is a colossal living creature whose body is our Universe. The Creator turned himself into it in order to go through a special stage of development: he learns himself from the inside through the minds of people and other intelligent creatures that live in the Universe - after all, their minds are nothing more than particles of his mind, and he is perfected through their moral improvement. When this process is completed, the Creator will experience a transformation, leaving his current state as a more perfect being.

Our Universe is a single living organism, and everything that exists in it are living and interconnected particles of this organism. The principle of unity of all things, proclaimed by the Teaching of the United Temple, is based on this.


42. Why is “unity” one of the most important concepts for the Teaching?

Everything that exists in the Universe (and even wider - in the Universe as a system of three interconnected worlds: the world of matter, the world of energy and the world of Spirit) is a unity of particles. This unity is not just a speculative philosophical concept, but reality: it is a living organism, the Creator’s organism, its flesh, energy and Spirit. Everything that exists is nothing but particles of a living body, like molecules and cells. Everything has its place in this system and performs its function, everything is necessary for the Creator’s organism, and, therefore, for each other.

Everything is somehow interconnected, everything needs each other. Any particle of the Creator is the Creator; Thus, we can say that any particle of the Creator is another particle, and all of them together at the same time. They have common flesh, energy and Spirit.

Awareness of this great unity is very important for the followers of the Teaching. This is the basis for relationships with other people, with surrounding world, with the Universe and the Creator. The awareness that you are a particle of a single organism and that you are inextricably interconnected with its other particles radically changes the perception of yourself, the world and life in general.


43. What is the significance of love in the Teaching?

Its value is enormous. In the Teaching, the need for love is not based on fear (love your neighbor, or you will be punished) or profit (love others to love you), but on the fact of universal unity. If unity is deeply conscious, if you understand that everything needs you, and everything is necessary for you, if you see and feel it in any person, and you see and feel it in yourself, and if you not only perceive people, but everything in general, from a stone by the side of the road to distant galaxies and their inhabitants, then there is no reason for anger, hatred, contempt, envy and other similar feelings and impulses. On the contrary: you feel closeness, warmth, and goodwill towards everything. The feeling and awareness of one's unity with all that exists is the most solid foundation for love. If you understand and feel that way, is it possible not to love everyone and everything? And the achievement of awareness and a sense of unity is one of the most important tasks of man in the Teaching. Achieving this leads to true love. That is, love for all things, according to the Teaching, is the natural state of man. The spiritual development of the follower is directed towards her; it is a natural feeling and motivation for actions, and that is the environment in which it is most natural for them to develop.


44. Who are called "gods" in the Teaching?

Everything that exists has an energetic component — what can be called an “energetic body”. It is in physical objects, living beings, phenomena and laws of Nature. The Teaching calls these energy bodies "elementals." Each elemental has a certain degree of rationality. The Teaching conditionally divides them into higher and lower. The lower elementals are actually the energy bodies of physical objects, communities and phenomena of local action. The higher ones include the elementals of the phenomena, principles and laws of Nature on a large scale, from planetary to universal. They are called gods in the Teaching.

Thus, gods are energy creatures that embody the laws of Nature, the principles by which various processes proceed in it, and control these processes themselves. There is nothing supernatural in gods: they are particles of Nature that exist in the energy level and obey natural laws themselves. This is a form of energy organization that is still inaccessible to scientific research. They are reasonable, although somewhat differently than humans. Each of the gods only performs its function; they act like perfectly tailored and interdependent details of the gigantic mechanism — our Universe. The mind and energy impact of the most significant gods encompass the entire Universe. In some cases, direct contact with one or another god is possible. An example is the revelations of the God of Wisdom, due to which the Teaching exists in the world of people.


45. What is the Truth?

Truth is reliable knowledge, reliable information about reality. We can say that Truth is reality itself. For example, the earth revolves around the sun. This is a reality, a true fact. Thus, the fact that the Earth revolves around the Sun is true. It is the same with everything else. Some argue that Truth is relative. This is not true. It is one, and it is absolute - that is, what it is. Only person’s ideas about it can be relative, as human mind tends to make mistakes, fall into confusion, take the wish for the reality and evade the perception of what seems unpleasant, uncomfortable or unprofitable. However, the Truth does not change from this. The Earth revolved around the Sun even when the opposite was considered true. It is the biggest misconception, anthropocentrism in its most pathological manifestation to consider a man to be the measure of the Truth and claim that there are as many variations of the Truth as there are ideas about it. There is only one Truth and it is quite precise. A man can only come more or less closer to see and understand it.


46. Are all religions and teachings equal paths leading to the Truth?

No, they are not. There is only one Truth, and its correct presentation can also be one only. That is, only one teaching can be true (or as close as possible to the Truth). The statement of the equal truth of all religions and teachings is fashionable speculation. It is based on, on the one hand, the desire to show tolerance in its flawed, contrary to common sense form and, on the other hand, ambitious jealousy of other people's views - it’s easier for some to admit that other people's views are no less true than their own, rather than admit that their own views may be wrong. When you reduce all to the same level, nobody turns out to be better than others, but nobody turns out worse. This position is convenient for painfully proud, not ready to lose and disappoint people, as well as for demagogues. A simple common sense is enough to see the absurdity of such speculation. Can the teachings be equally true, one of which claims that there is only one God, and the other that there are many gods, one - that man lives only one life, and the other -many lives, one that he expects eternal paradise or eternal hell after death, and another - that everyone can achieve nirvana or the transition into the world of Spirit? And so on and so forth. There are many mutually exclusive options. Obviously, all of them cannot be equally true.

Moreover, all these are not just statements. These are representations of reality, from which moral principles, practice, actions and goals arise - both intermediate practical life goals and the ultimate goal of the spiritual path, stemming from its meaning. But the meaning, in turn, follows from the same ideas about reality. For teachings that have different ideas about it, the meaning of the spiritual path and its ultimate goal also turn out to be different. That is, all these paths lead in different directions, to different goals. And since there is only one Truth there can be only one spiritual path and one aim based on it. In almost all religions and teachings there are elements of Truth - in some more, in others less. These elements often coincide - that is, they are common to different worldviews. But this does not mean at all these worldviews are equally true. Alas, the differences here are more important than coincidences. So in ten statements, where separate words coincide, the general meaning is still different, and from it follow dissimilar, conflicting conclusions. And even the difference in just one word can make the meaning of the statement and the conclusions drawn from it different to the opposite. The same is true of spiritual paths.


47. What is “spiritual whoredom”?

In our time, mixing of elements of various religions and teachings has become popular. People choose the most attractive moments for themselves, take these moments out of context and mix with others, thereby creating a convenient “patchwork” worldview for themselves. Contradictions arising between its incompatible elements are usually not taken into account. Not wanting to truly learn the Truth, such people create pocket-friendly, easy-to-use option for themselves that does not require anything and which can always be corrected, changed in accordance with their immediate needs.

This is arrogant unwillingness to reckon with authorities and reality itself and a selfish desire to create the Truth beneficial to themselves, together with cynical tearing out of the context and blindly mixing elements of different worldviews. It is called spiritual whoredom in the Teaching. Spiritual whoredom, like physical whoredom, corrupts a person, cultivating self-conceit, egocentrism, unprincipled, speculative thinking in him. Now this phenomenon is spreading more and more widely, having a negative impact on society.


48. What is evil, according to the Teaching? Who is the Dragon?

Evil is what prevents the proper fulfillment of the laws of Nature and the normal course of things. That is, evil is everything unnatural. When the natural and normal processes occurring in the human body are disrupted, the body begins to collapse - it is sick and can die. The Universe - that is, the Creator's organism - also represents an ordered system, failures in which lead to disastrous consequences.What leads to these failures is called evil.

In Nature itself, evil as such is not committed. The laws of Nature work clearly and correctly; and even destruction in it is a necessary part of natural processes, occurs only when necessary and is beneficial to the Universe - therefore, such destruction is not evil. The real evil can only be done by sentient beings. Possessing an ability to learn and have free will, they can be mistaken, and consciously commit acts contrary to nature and good. The possibility of this is the essence of the moral perfection of the conscious, which is the most important factor in the internal perfection of the Creator. When perceiving, sentient beings are able to distinguish between good and evil and have an ability to make an well-informed choice between them. The choice in favor of good moves forward the moral evolution of the sentient beings and, through them, moves forward the perfection of the Creator. The choice in favor of evil leads to unnatural acts, conflicts with the laws of Nature, various phenomena harmful to the sentient beings and the Universe, unnecessary and destructive. All evil that occurs in the Universe is accomplished or initiated by the sentient beings, intentionally or unintentionally. The Dragon is one of the highest elementals, the God of Resistance to Good. His business is to influence sentient beings, showing them the possibility and attractiveness of evil. In religions, this is called "temptation", and the Dragon himself appears in many of them as the main force opposing good in general or any particular deity personifying good. However, in reality, the Dragon, like other gods, exists for the good. He (through the sentient beings who are tempted by him) creates obstacles to natural processes, that is, provides resistance, without which development, the movement of evolution forward, cannot take place. By tempting sentient beings, he makes their moral choice more difficult, and therefore better, - which is necessary for the internal perfection of the Creator. It is very important to understand the functions of the Dragon correctly and to relate to it correctly. Unlike the characters who personify him in various religions, he is not a force that does evil for evil. He does what is necessary for the evolution of sentient beings and the Universe - that is, taking his natural place in the general system, among other gods, he works for the good, like them. This means that you should not hate him and be hostile to him. But one should not give in to his temptations, and even more so, try to serve him, as some do. The meaning of its existence is that, making it difficult for those who are aware of moral choice, to make their moral improvement more qualitative. Beckoning them with the possibility of evil, the Dragon wants them to reject his skills and choose the good, because otherwise the purpose of the Dragon would be unfulfilled, and its very existence would become meaningless. Thus, those who obey the Dragon and try to serve him, thereby demonstrate a complete misunderstanding of his mission and act contrary to his own desires. The right attitude towards him is correct understanding of his functions and struggle with him, - with his temptations and with all that is harmful and destructive, that people and other sentient beings commit under his influence. And this struggle should not carry hatred, because the Dragon, in fact, does not exist for evil, but for good. Hatred itself is evil, and by hating we do not overcome evil, but multiply it.


49. Is human destiny predetermined?

In Teaching, “fate” refers to what has already happened in human life. That is, fate is a life course traveled, and not what is predetermined to happen in the future. A man has free will, otherwise he could not make a free choice between good and evil, and could not improve himself morally. And since he has free will, he can change his beliefs and intentions, can commit illogical, inconsistent, erroneous and purely emotional, contrary to common sense actions. And he lives among the same people whose opinions and actions influence his opinions and actions. A person, often unpredictable, lives among equally unpredictable people. Under such conditions, his future cannot be predetermined. His future is a set of constantly changing (sometimes very quickly changing, literally flickering) probabilities.

There are times when something is strictly predetermined — for example, a certain event or turn in life. But they are quite rare, and the appearance of such a predestination requires a special combination of circumstances and factors. Basically, it turns out to be more or less predetermined that depends on the person himself - on the characteristics of his character, willpower, adherence to principles and firmness of decisions. Everyone is the creator of his own destiny.


50. What is a soul, according to the Teaching?

In the Teaching, this word is usually used in two meanings - in fact, the same in which it is widely used outside of the Teaching. Firstly, it says so about a human personality contained in the energetic body, which at the time of death of a person is separated from the physical body and goes into the world of energy. Secondly, it says so about a combination of thoughts, beliefs, feelings, emotions, character traits, strengths and weaknesses, abilities, etc., that is, about what, in fact, constitutes human. In this second meaning, the word “soul” is used more often in the Teaching.
Sometimes the Spirit is called the “soul of the Creator" in the Teaching, as the most perfect of the substances of the Universe, bearing in itself the mind and moral qualities of the Creator. In the same sense, this definition is sometimes applied to the world of Spirit.


51. What does the Teaching say about the “end of the world”?

There is no such concept in the Teaching. Of course, humanity has the opportunity to destroy itself; any global natural disaster is also possible. But the end of the world, with supernatural causes, will not happen. All predictions of such an end of the world are fictions of a different nature - sometimes it is the fruit of delusions, sometimes it is intentional speculation. The excitement that periodically arises in society on this basis has no real basis.


52. Why, without being religious or occult, the Teaching uses religious and occult terminology?

The reason for this inconvenience is that for the time being the Teaching simply does not have enough terms to denote the specific concepts that it has. Therefore, some more or less close in meaning religious (for example, “god”) and occult (for example, “elemental”, “larva”) terms are used. It should be remembered that in the Teaching these words are used to denote not those concepts that are habitually associated with them among people familiar with religious and occult terminology. The problem of the terminology of the Teaching will be solved in the future.


53. What is the attitude of the Teaching to magic, occultism and things like that?

According to the Teaching, magic is a reprehensible occupation. Attempts to influence the world around us and people using magical tricks run counter to the natural course of things, which is why they are harmful and immoral.

Occultism is a rather vague concept. It can include a wide range of interests, concepts and practices, from the same magic to sorcerers, from philosophical and mystical concepts to superstitions, plus all kinds of quackery. It is impossible to give all this a single unambiguous assessment. But we can say that, on the whole, occultism is undesirable, since it is more speculative, superstitious and harmful in it than what really helps cognition and brings real benefits.


54. What is the attitude of the Teaching to other teachings, religions, etc.?

Respectful, although the Teaching does not consider them true. But a respectful and friendly attitude does not at all preclude the possibility of a critical approach to other teachings and religions, polemics with them, and healthy rivalry.


55. Does the Teaching consider that any other teachings or religions should be prohibited?

Any views have a right to exist. However, the practical implementation of certain concepts is sometimes associated with the commission of immoral and even criminal acts (for example, the persecution of other believers, ritual murder, etc.). Such actions should be suppressed in accordance with the law, as unlawful and criminal activity, equivalent to the activities of extremist organizations and criminal groups. And if it is impossible to suppress them otherwise than once having recognized their teaching as dangerous for society, then in this case it is necessary to recognize the need for a ban.


56. Can followers of the Teaching  read books related to other teachings or religions?

It is possible, and even desirable. It is not only interesting, but also useful. Studying other people's views helps to get to know people better and gain a more complete picture of the spiritual history and culture of mankind. In addition, comparing the views of the Teaching with other views often helps to get to know and understand it better. Finally, no one cancels the right to revise their views and a new choice for a person who has entered the Teaching. This means that he always has an alternative for the spiritual path in the form of other teachings, about which it is better to have a clear idea.


57. How does the Teaching and science relate?

The Teaching rejects belief in supernatural and considers science to be the best way to learn. In other words, it adheres to a scientific view of the world. However, at the same time, it possesses (thanks to revelation) knowledge that is not yet available to science. Therefore, from a scientific point of view, it can resemble a religion operating with supernatural, scientifically improvable concepts. This is actually not the case. What the Teaching speaks of can be open and will be open and proved by science when it reaches an appropriate level of development. Although now, the Teaching could help science by expanding its understanding of the world and indicating some guidelines for search and research. So, for example, with his assistance - i.e. thanks to the information that it has, a new word could be spoken in astrophysics, history, psychology, the theory of evolution, bioenergy, and a number of other disciplines and directions.


58. What is the attitude of the Teaching to business? Is this considered an unworthy occupation?

No, it does not. Unworthy may not be business as such, but the use of immoral and criminal methods in it, or the use of money earned for immoral and criminal purposes. Although there are types of businesses that can be considered legal, they are immoral from the point of view of the Teaching, for example, those associated with the production and distribution of alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, pornography, etc., generally causing physical or moral harm to people and society, as well as those that cause serious harm to the environment.


59. Should the followers of the Teaching obey the laws of those states of which they are citizens?

Laws should be obeyed. However, they are not always humane and helpful. There are known examples of immoral laws - affirming slavery, various forms of social oppression, racist, Nazi and the like. Of course, no one is obliged to obey such laws, as well as support criminal regimes. If you do not keep in mind such cases, then law-abiding is important and necessary.


60. Does the Teaching allow its followers to do army service?

Yes. But there is one difficulty. An oath is taken in military service; it is an oath to be observed. The Teaching does not accept lies; and if his follower takes the oath, then, according to the Teaching, he will be obliged to fulfill it, for example, to obey the orders of his commanders, even if they contradict his principles or are generally immoral. The oath is a serious obligation that gives a person under the authority of other people. Therefore, everyone must decide for himself whether he can go to such a restriction of freedom of conscience as a military oath.

Declaration of The Teaching of The United Temple



This Declaration is intended for general knowledge. Its aim is to notify everyone, both interested and disinterested, about its philosophy, principles and purposes, its views on society and some important aspects of human life. Hereafter are the main points. They are based on the philosophy of The Teaching of The United Temple. They do not depend on the current situation and are permanent. They are fundamental for today and also for the future. They are recognized by the followers and reflect their views, principles, goals and guidelines for action.


Part 1

Our philosophy

     1.1 The Truth - is everything that objectively exists. It is reality itself. There is only one reality and it is what it is. There are no different options of the Truth. It does not depend on the opinions of people. Their delusions distort their ideas about it, but do not change it. The Truth is perceptible, and can be described to the extent that it is comprehensible to human mind. A reliable description of reality is also called the Truth.

     1.2 There is a great infinity called The Being. It is a boundless space that does not have the beginning or the end in time, in which everything exists as its particles, including our Universe. The Four Great Principles act in it: Vital, Progressive, Good and Reasonable. These are the basic laws of The Being, from which all other laws originate, laws of The Being and its particles. There is also an impulse of destruction in The Being. By overcoming it, The Being evolves, thus supporting its existence and life of all its particles.

     1.3 Our Universe is a living and sentient being called the Creator. In order to perceive himself and reach a new level of evolution, he transformed his body into the Universe. The Creator is not a supernatural being: he is the fruit of evolution of his world. His transformation into the Universe was not a supernatural act either: he changed himself with the abilities acquired during the evolution. The Universe has three levels, which consist of different substances and are called the world of Spirit, the world of energy and the world of matter. The first corresponds to the soul of the Creator, the second - to its energy, and the third - to its physical body.

     1.4 Evolution is the main law both in The Being and in our Universe. There are no supernatural powers nor miracles that violate natural laws. Those who are called gods, or higher elementals, in the Teaching, are the personified laws of Nature, that is, the functions of the Creator's body. These laws come from the world of Spirit and manage the lives of two other worlds.

In the world of energy, their carriers are a kind of living matrices - energy beings with a special form of consciousness. Their purpose is to implement these laws properly, and they cannot act against their purpose. We call them gods.

     1.5 Good and evil are objective concepts and do not depend on people's opinions. Good is what benefits The Being and the Universe, contributes to their evolution and continuation of their lives, and evil is what prevents it and leads to destruction. In our Universe the manifestation of the destruction impulse is the highest elemental called the Dragon. He creates resistance, by overcoming it the Creator is internally perfected.

     1.6 There are two forms of mind: passive, or preserving, and active, or cognizing. A passive mind is inherent in everything in the universe; it manifests itself in the form of instincts. Active mind is also present in everything, but in the form of a latent potential. It manifests itself only in creatures that have reached a certain evolutionary level. Such creatures are called sentient beings, since they are able to actively perceive the world and themselves, to be aware of what is known, to analyze and comprehend information, and to creatively apply gained knowledge. Only sentient beings have free will and can make a conscious choice.

     1.7 There are many types of sentient beings in the Universe, that is, intelligent races that have appeared on different planets during evolution. The mind of the Creator is manifested through them, thus he perceives himself and improves himself. Humans are one of these intelligent races. All intelligent races of the universe are united by a common purpose and a single meaning of existence.

     1.8 The essence of the Creator’s internal evolution is to perfect the Spirit, that is, his soul, which contains his mind and personal qualities. In every conscious person there is a particle of the Spirit, which he must perfect through cognition and moral choice. A particle comes out of the world of Spirit and becomes a soul of a sentient being and the basis of his personality. By reaching the highest possible level of development it returns to the world of Spirit and merges with other particles within. When the whole soul of the Creator passes through the sentient beings and becomes more perfect, the Creator will experience a qualitative change and will be at a new stage of his evolution. However, if this process is excessively delayed and does not end in time, the Creator will perish. Thus, his further fate - that is, the fate of the Universe - depends on the sentient beings.

     1.9 The meaning of life of a person as a sentient being is in perfection of the Creator. Each of us is responsible for a part of his soul that he carries within. For this we get the right to life. We must work to perfect the Creator; this is called The Great Duty. The two components of this work are cognition and morality. We know reality, we know good and evil and we make a series of moral choices between them. When a person makes a choice in favor of good, he thereby improves his particle of the Spirit, increases its quality. If he chooses in favor of evil, his improvement slows down.

     1.10 Perfection of a particle of the Spirit is not an easy task, which is almost impossible to accomplish in one life. Therefore, a person lives through a number of lives. When his physical body dies, his soul (that is, the energy body and the Spirit) remains in the world of energy for awhile, and then is born in a new body. The time and place of a new birth does not depend on a person’s desire, but is determined by the laws of Nature, which direct him to the place with the best conditions for his development. There is no spiritual degradation; the achievements of each life are added to the achievements of the previous lives. Rebirths continue until a person gains enough experience and improves his Spirit as far as possible. Then the particle of the Spirit, now of a higher level, returns to the world of Spirit.

     1.11 A man is a particle of the Creator, and by perfecting himself, he perfects the Creator. This occurs through moral choice, which is made possible through perception and free will. Therefore, a person should percieve and try to lead a moral life. You need to fight with your vices, defeat them and develop positive qualities in yourself. That is how the Spirit is perfected. Therefore, morality comes before anything else. We need to learn to love people and everything that exists, we need to benefit society and try to make the world a better place. It is necessary to fulfill the Great Duty: this is the meaning of life. We must not forget that each of us has a personal responsibility for the future of the Creator.

     1.12 Humanity exists to fulfill the Great Duty. To do this, it perceives the world and improves intellectually, morally and socially. There is a natural process of fusion of nations. Over time, they will become a single nation, with a single culture, a single worldview and a single United philosophy. Humanity is a cosmic race in its potential. People will go into deep space, will explore and inhabit other planets. Humanity will come into contact with other intelligent races, will have a common philosophy with many of them. They will cooperate on the basis of the common fulfillment of the Great Duty. When humanity reaches the maximum level of development, it will cease to exist, as its task will be completed, and people will move into the world of Spirit.


Part 2

Our teaching

     2.1 The Teaching of The United Temple is not a religion. It does not recognize the existence of any supernatural powers, does not teach to worship anything, does not have a cult, shrines and saints, prayers, mystical sacraments and other attributes of religion. It is a spiritual path based on knowledge and moral principles. By the "temple" we mean the world in which we live, Nature, the Universe. You are to perceive them in such a way and try to behave accordingly.

     2.2 Mankind is experiencing serious difficulties with cognition and moral development. Therefore, Nature helps us through one of the highest elementals, whom we call the God of Wisdom. This is the one who stores all information about the Universe. It transfers some knowledge to intelligent races that have similar difficulties, and thereby stimulates their development, helping them not to fade away. During the human history, which is actually much longer than is commonly believed, people received help from him twenty-six times. We call these informational messages -revelations, and people who received them directly from the God of Wisdom - prophets. Thus, the Teaching has come into our world more than once during the periods of deep crisis. Moreover, it always remained a property of a narrow circle of initiates, spreading indirectly. Its mission was not to proclaim the Truth openly, but only to direct people to it. Having completed the task, it disappeared every time.

     2.3. The current, twenty-seventh revelation is special - because the situation is especially difficult. Humanity is in a spiritual and moral crisis again, and at the same time, for the first time in its history, it can completely destroy itself. Therefore, now the Teaching is intended for all people. It is transmitted openly and contains more information than previous revelations. This revelation is final one: there will be no more.

     2.4 The Teaching was founded by the prophet Atarchat on the 1st of March 1996. The Prophet is the head of the teaching and is the highest authority in all matters related to it. In these matters, his judgment and his establishment cannot be challenged, since he is connected with the source of revelation. The collection of the fundamental texts of the Teaching is called the pandect “Erma”. It cannot be written by anyone except the prophet, and the texts included in it must not be changed. The Pandect is the main source of the Teaching, along with the living word of the prophet.

     2.5 In the heart of the Teaching are its principles. Each follower is an apprentice receiving knowledge from the Teacher. He should honor his Teacher and trust him fully. The Teacher should transfer knowledge to the apprentices, teach them to follow these principles in life, explain obscure moments of the Teaching and, if necessary, help with advice in difficult life situations. The teacher should also be a role model in following the Teaching. He is obliged to do everything possible so that his apprentices can study the Teaching and develop spiritually, and cannot demand or expect any reward from them.

    2.6 Any sane person who has reached the age of 21 years can join the Teaching. His decision to join should be deliberate and voluntary. The entrant must have an idea of the philosophy of the teaching, understand its goals and principles and accept them as his own. Upon entry, no oaths and obligations are made, only a firm intention to follow the chosen path is confirmed. Resignation from the Teaching is free, without any conditions and obstacles.

     2.7 The follower must uphold the principle of paths' purity. It is impossible to follow the Teaching and other spiritual paths at the same time and bring their elements into it. This will violate the integrity of the path and make it unsuitable for spiritual development. However, acquaintance with other spiritual paths is not prohibited for the followers of the Teaching, what is more, it is recommended.

     2.8 There are no obligatory monetary contributions in the Teaching. Followers are not obliged to make donations, they are not obliged to buy something related to the Teaching. They are also not obliged to participate in the Teaching related matters, such as promotion, attracting new followers. They should only understand the Teaching, and it is expected that they will do their best to follow its principles.

     2.9 There are no specially developed practices for spiritual development in the Teaching. The best and the most effective practice in this sense is a righteous life. You need to know the Truth and learn how to live in accordance with it, you need to lead a moral life and try to be useful to people and the world. The Teaching does not command or forbid; it tells what is right and what is not, and explains why. If a follower really seeks the Truth and tries to follow it, he will motivate himself to follow the right path and avoid the wrong ones.

    2.10 The Teaching is a supranational community uniting people from different nations. Not only those followers who live in the world of matter, but also those who are in the world of energy between rebirths belong to it. It is also the philosophy of many intelligent races in the Universe. Thus, it is not only a supranational community, but also a supraspecific one. All its followers - people and others sentient beings, who are in the world of matter and in the world of energy - consider themselves to be one nation, called the Eternal Nation.

     2.11 The Teaching does not contradict science. Everything that it talks about is real, and does not contain mysticism. Science does not have the means and capabilities to discover and study what it describes yet. However, over time, such tools and opportunities will appear. Science will make discoveries confirming that the philosophy of the Teaching corresponds to reality. In future, science and Teaching will unite in a single path of cognition.


Part 3

Our principles

     3.1 There is a natural morality common to all people. It has its source in the Spirit and is, in fact, the morality of the Creator himself. It was originally put into every person, since at the core of human soul is a particle of the Creator’s soul.

     3.2 Since the perfection of the Spirit goes through moral life, it is especially important to follow moral standards. It makes a person and our world better. It is necessary to overcome your vices, to refrain from immoral acts. It is necessary to help other people in this, at least by example. It is necessary to fight immorality in society, because it destroys it, destroys people's lives, hinders their spiritual development, generates unbridledness and crime, makes our world a dangerous place.

     3.3 Struggling - is not something undesirable and extraordinary, but a person’s natural state. We are constantly struggling with something or for something. Each person is inherently a warrior. However, this does not mean aggressiveness. The struggle can be peaceful and without hatred. At a minimum, we struggle with our vices and worse qualities, and fight against what is bad for us. Therefore, it is impossible to avoid the struggle. This inevitability must be taken for granted. The main thing is to try struggling for what is right and fair. Such a struggle improves a person, so he becomes stronger and better.

     3.4 A person is free in his decisions and actions. No one can force him into anything unless he himself allows it. If it was different, there would be no sense in the existence of man, because free moral choice is the most important tool for spiritual development. Without it, it would be impossible to perfect the Creator. There is no fate, no future determination. We decide our own destiny.

     3.5 A person lives and develops, he feels discomfort, faces obstacles, experiences failures and losses and suffers from this. Suffering is natural. It is an integral part of life and development, it cannot be avoided completely, and there is no sense in striving for this. Problems and difficulties are a natural part of life. By overcoming problems, difficulties and suffering, we are improving. They are an important evolutionary factor, and we need to treat them that way.

     3.6 Death is not the end of human life. Only the physical body dies, and the person some time remains in the world of energy, after that he is born again. Therefore, one should not be afraid of death as something most terrible and irreparable. You should remembered that your current life is only an episode, a link in a long chain of rebirths. If it is overshadowed by great misfortunes, losses and suffering, then all of them are temporary and in the next life everything will be different. You should not despair and assume that everything is lost. It is necessary to use problems as an opportunity for development in this life.

     3.7 A body does not have its own value. It is only a material shell of the soul, the tool used for its improvement. Therefore, it is wrong to put the interests and well-being of a body above moral principles and perfecting the soul. The internal is more important than the external. A body should be treated as a valuable tool that is cared for and looked after, but not to the detriment of the tasks for which it was created.

     3.8 Spirituality is not necessarily the same as religion. Spiritual values are created through art, philosophy, ethics, scientific knowledge, and so on. Spirituality is what relates to perfection of the Spirit, contributes to this process. It is associated with the Great Duty. In order to successfully fulfill it, religion is not needed.

     3.9 Every teaching or religion has the right to consider itself true. This is natural, as each teaching is trying to find the Truth. If a person is convinced that the spiritual path he has chosen is the true one, that does not mean he disrespects other people's paths. However, criticism of other spiritual paths is possible and normal. This is spiritual pluralism, which should be based on the principles of mutual respect and healthy rivalry and should not turn into enmity. Time and scientific knowledge will show which of the spiritual paths is true and reflects the reality more accurately.

     3.10 All races and peoples are equal. No nation is superior to others or worse than others in its essence. Such phenomena as racism, national chauvinism and Nazism are unacceptable. All nations are moving towards a gradual merger into a single nation - and there should be no artificial support of their separation nor interethnic hostility. Men and women are equal. Sexual chauvinism is unacceptable. All people are equal in their fundamental rights.

     3.11 Violence is evil. However, it is permissible to protect the right and the innocence in case of a defensive war, in a fight against crime and terrorism and in other similar cases, when inaction leads to even greater evil and is a tantamount to crime itself. At the same time, justified violence, even being a lesser evil, still remains evil. It cannot be set equal to good. Anyone who commits it, in any case, has guilt and moral responsibility for the deed.

     3.12 The Universe is the Creator, a living being, and therefore everything in it is alive and sentient. It is necessary to remember this and relate appropriately to everything that surrounds us. You need to be careful and respectful to Nature, people, things. This natural attitude makes us better ourselves, helps to overcome the barriers separating man from Nature, helps to find strengths that it can give us.

     3.13 The Universe is a single organism, each particle of which needs other particles and can live in harmony with them. We must strive to realize this unity, we must learn to see ourselves in everything and everything in ourselves. This is the ground on which love for people, the world and the Universe grows.

     3.14 One should not hate as nothing deserves to be hated. All is good in its essence. Even evil, creating obstacles to the development of the Being, the Creator and man, promotes their development. All people are essentially good. They can do evil - but it is external; inside, without exception, everyone is good, for they contain particles of the Creator’s soul. If a person commits evil, then it is rather his misfortune than guilt, and he deserves not hatred, but sympathy and help in overcoming his worst qualities.

     3.15 Humans are the top species of evolution on our planet - however, this does not mean that they should rule over Nature. The world does not exist to serve them and satisfy their whims. On the contrary: people exists to work for the good of the world, to make it better, to perfect the Universe. They can use benefits that they receives from Nature, but not predatory. They must fulfill their destiny to have a moral right to these benefits.

     3.16 Selfishness should not have place. People are not the center of the Universe; everything does not revolve around them. We exist to serve the world. The interests of people, the world, the Universe should be more important for a person than his personal interests. When the opposite happens, then selfishness arises - one of the most unnatural and worst phenomena. It is egoism that often leads to indifference, greed, enmity, violence and other similar phenomena that make the world a place of sufferings. This happens because a person who acts contrary to his essence ceases to be human.


Part 4

Our aims

     4.1 The primary and main aim of the Teaching is to help people find the Truth. It provides knowledge that science is not yet able to give. We will try to spread this knowledge and explain the principles arising from it. Moreover, we believe that the obtrusion of opinions on others is unacceptable - even if it is a question of the Truth and even if the future of mankind depends on it. We offer the Truth, but we do not force it to accept.

     4.2 We are convinced that the end does not justify the means. A good deed should be done by good methods. Criminal and immoral methods distort the best intentions and cross out the most noble goals. Coercion, lies, all kinds of deceit, bribery, manipulation, violation of obligations and other similar tricks, we consider unacceptable and do not apply.

     4.3 Enlightenment and change for the better of the whole world is a very complex matter. It takes a long time to achieve. Therefore, we are not in a hurry, we are not setting tight deadlines, we are not forcing events through adoption of dubious decisions. We will patiently and thoroughly do our job, assuming that it will take tens or even hundreds of years.

     4.4 The Teaching does not consider anyone to be its enemy and does not consider itself to be anyone's enemy in principle. Hatred and enmity are unacceptable to us, even in the case of rivalry or any other kind of confrontation. Even if someone is hostile to us, we will not consider him our enemy.

     4.5 The aim of the Teaching is to fight immorality, selfishness, aggressiveness, interethnic hostility and other negative phenomena that destroy society and threaten the existence of human civilization. Society should be based on the principles of natural morality, free will and justice.

     4.6 The Teaching aims at enlightenment, activities in the field of education, science, culture and art, in other areas of public life, as well as in the field of nature conservation. The actions of the Teaching in all these areas will unfold gradually, as opportunities and means appear.

     4.7 The Teaching will contribute to the natural fusion of all races and nations and unification of mankind into a single nation. This should lead to the emergence of a new, United human culture, which absorbs the best features of previous cultures. This merger will serve as the basis for ending wars, various interethnic and intercultural conflicts and will help people unite their efforts in understanding the world and developing human civilization.

     4.8 We have no doubt that the Teaching will become the philosophy of the whole humanity in the future. This will happen peacefully, without aggressive imposition and coercion and will be achieved largely due to the fact that the truth of the Teaching will be conclusively proved by science. When humanity is ready, a global state will emerge, built on the principles of the Teaching.

     4.9 The Teaching will contribute to the development of outer space, the resettlement of mankind in outer space, the establishment of relations and cooperation with other sentient beings. It will become a unifying factor not only for humanity itself, which will be spread over many star systems, but also for other intelligent races.

     4.10 The ultimate goal of the Teaching is to contribute to the perfection of the Creator and the strengthening of the life of the Being. Everything we strive for and everything that we do is ultimately aimed at this. All great things are made of small. The implementation of such ambitious tasks consists of thoughts, feelings, actions, aspirations and work of each person. Therefore, each person matters, he is important and necessary to the Universe. If people understand their purpose they will be able to fulfill it.



The Teaching is an extensive and deep philosophy that applies to all spheres of life, and this Declaration is not a complete statement. It summarizes only the main points as briefly as possible, which helps to make an overview of its general terms. This should be taken into account by those who know about the existence of the Teaching and will learn about it in the future, will shape their attitude towards it, wish to cooperate with it or will come into contact with it in some way.
