Babaji's Teachings

"Love and serve all humanity.
Help everyone.
Be happy. Be courteous.
Be a dynamo of irrepressible joy.
Recognise God and goodness in every face.
Praise everyone.
If you cannot praise someone, let them go out of your life.
Be original. Be inventive. Be courageous.
Take courage again and again.
Do not imitate. Be strong. Be upright.
Do not lean on the crutches of others.
Think with your own head. Be yourself.
All perfection and every divine virtue is hidden within you:
Reveal them to the world.
Wisdom, too, is already within you…
Let it shine forth.
Let the Lord’s Grace make you free.
Let your life be that of a rose… in silence,
It speaks the language of fragrance."

-Babaji February 1984

What are the Teachings of Babaji?



Babaji's taught people to live in Truth, Simplicity and Love. He was not interested in starting a new religion or converting people to a new faith. He wanted people to follow their own faith and learn to live in unity with all people. He had come to reintroduce the concept of Sanatan Dharma, the idea that all things are connected, that all faiths and philosophies are like many rivers travelling to the same ocean.





Central to his teachings were that we are one human race and that we should stop thinking ourselves as separate based on national identity and other concepts that divide us.


"Everyone should forget nationality; we are one here.

This is a universal family. Have no idea of separation of identity; discard feelings of separateness. Serve the people with mind, body, wealth and brain."

-Babaji, December 16th, 1981.






The concept of Sanatan Dharma is the nature of creation itself. It is the 'original religion' in the sense that it is the essence of life since time began or the natural laws that govern the universe. The nature of fire is to burn and water to flow.


Sanatan Dharma is the spirit of life and nature that binds all beings as one.  Truth does not belong to any one religion or philosophy, but all is part of a beautiful whole. Babaji sought to unite humanity beyond all division of races, castes and creeds.


"I do not recognise castes and races. I behold only one humanity."

-Babaji, June 21st, 1982





Pritam brilliantly summarises some of the main parts of Babaji's teachings in his book 'Truth, Simplicity and Love':


  • All Religions come from the same Primordial Source

  • All religions lead to the same goal - God.

  • All religions are incorporated in the principle of Truth, Simplicity and Love.

  • The only true religion is humanism. (i.e. serving humanity)

  • Hard work is more important than religion.

  • Repeating God's name (or a divine name from your faith or tradition) is the best protection in times of trouble.
