Mission

We are a spiritual & charitable activities organization dedicated to serving humanity and the awakening of universal consciousness. Through the teachings and practices revealed in the ancient palm leaf manuscripts every individual can access the divinity within and reach their highest potential. We believe that the ancient knowledge is the birthright of humanity and the means that each person can recognize the God within. This information is available to everyone regardless of caste, creed, gender, age or economic status. We believe all souls are equal in God’s eyes. We believe God to be both formless as Divine Consciousness, and in form as both the Divine Mother and the Divine Father.

Through the practices given in the ancient manuscripts the mind can be purified of negative tendencies, such as ego, jealousy, anger, hatred, unworthiness, selfishness and greed, which are the cause of conflict in the society. A mind resting in silence will automatically be loving, accepting and able to perceive the truth clearly.

The emphasis of the Divine Lineage is to promote the qualities of the highest spiritual values of service, humility, kindness, sympathy, forgiveness, generosity and unity.

We believe it is essential for the individual to keep learning and understanding Nature and this Creation. Every person has the right to true knowledge, it is not the purview of a few. Through knowing the underlying laws of Nature, we can be more effective in alleviating others’ suffering and be an instrument of positive change on the planet.

Every person has a unique purpose they must find and fulfill. The Divine Lineage believes that each person has a purpose to fulfill in this life and their special duty, or dharma must be fulfilled. Through meditation and self-awareness the purpose will become self-evident. A society will be harmonious and in the correct order if each person fulfills their appointed duty.

We believe that to bring real change in the world requires both love and power. The qualities of selflessness and unconditional love must be accompanied by power, spiritual power to bring real change. This divine power, shakti, is gained as the fruit of the practices of the ancient knowledge and the blessings of the Divine Mother and Father.

We believe that if there is a God, there are miracles and every spiritual person needs to experience the miraculous. God is the miraculous. To experience God means being able to see something you cannot believe is possible. The ancient knowledge teaches us that there is a natural world and a supernatural world, both of which are governed by one universal consciousness. The miracle of the sun rising each day on the horizon and the stars shining in the night sky are part of God’s natural phenomenon. Changing the natural world, as Jesus did when he changed water in wine, is a supernatural phenomenon. Both are expressions of God’s power. Miracle energy is flowing through all Creation, and the human being is capable of being an instrument of the miraculous energy. That is one of the goals of the teachings revealed in the ancient knowledge.

We believe in the power of the divine feminine. We worship God in the form of the Mother Divine, the Mother of us all. The feminine aspect of God is the source of power in all the Creation. Over the eons, the world has forgotten the Mother. By remembering and understanding Her, society will come back into balance. Through winning Her heart, we will experience the bliss of Her love. To win Her heart, all women must be shown respect. Society will thrive when women are loved and respected and when children are cared for, happy and protected.

The Divine Lineage is dedicated to developing healers and spiritual masters that will serve humanity. Every city needs healers and spiritual masters who will create spiritual centers, soul hospitals, to serve and take care of the people bringing healing and enlightenment.

We believe that money is to be used for dharmic purposes. After taking care of our needs, we must share what we have. When we give to the Divine, we receive ten fold back. Whatever we have now is the result of what we have previously given.

It is everyone duty to create a better world. Feeding the hungry, lifting the hopeless, defending the weak, healing the broken, we consider these to be a form of enlightenment. Through the empowerment received by the practices in the ancient knowledge we can do that more powerfully and more effectively. We can make a difference. We must all be a light unto the world.

We believe a new age of consciousness is dawning. As souls awaken and realize the divinity within them, there will be unity and cooperation among people. This age will be led by women and the qualities they naturally embody – cooperation, compassion, caring, sympathy and kindness. Recognizing truth, means recognizing the oneness underlying all. We are one. We are one divine family of humanity.
