" The extension of the Law of Non-Violence in the domain of economics means nothing less than the introduction of Moral Values to be used in regulating international commerce...You cannot build a non-violent society based on exploitation. Exploitation is the essence of violence." Mahatma Gandhi
Yajna is the spirit of self-sacrifice.
The spirit of self-sacrifice is the essence of Universal Law.
The essence of Universal Law is the Law of Life
Therefore, Yajna is the Law of Life.
Yajna is seen as the creative act of weaving that cosmic fabric in which everything has its place and receives its meaning.
‘Yajna’ means an act devoted to the welfare of others, done without desiring any return for it, whether of a temporal or spiritual nature.
‘Act’ here must be taken in its widest sense and includes thought, word and deed.
‘Others’ embraces not only humanity but all of life.
As Mahatma Gandhi stated:
"Yajna in its widest context must be an act which conduces the most to the welfare of the greatest numbers in the widest area, and which can be performed by the largest number of men and women." Gandhi
The mission of Yajna centre is both the socio-economic welfare and the spiritual elevation of humanity.
The socio-economic welfare of humanity is a means to the end.
The end is the moral and spiritual elevation of humanity.
Yajna center will strive to design and construct a global economic system built on the foundation of non-violence laid by Mahatma Gandhi, and guided and governed by Moral Laws governing the universe.

" Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power; we have guided missiles and misguided men...; if we are to go forward, we must go back and rediscover those precious values: that all reality hinges on MORAL foundations and that all reality has spiritual control...The Moral arc of the universe bends at the elbow of justice."
Martin Luther King
"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us 'Universe', a part limited in time and space. We now experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of our consciousness. This delusion is a prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of understanding and compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of Nature in her beauty”

I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy. R Tagore
The present evolutionary crisis comes from a disparity between the limited faculties of Man - mental, ethical and spiritual - and the technical and economic means at his disposal.
Without an inner change, Man can no longer cope with the gigantic development of outer life. If humanity is to survive, a radical transformation of human nature is indispensable. Only spiritual realization and experience can achieve the change of the mental being into a spiritual being."
