Conduct of the Ananda Math

Their Philosophy is not soft minded. Wisdom is one of their goals and is grounded on an admission that there is an Asuric (selfish and evil) segment in society that will not respond to kindness. Durbalbad (soft minded)  philosophy results in appeasement There is a balance between the creative, stable and destructive forces of this world.  The Yogi of the Ananda Math has a duty to protect Dharma and Society and can use any force guided by true insight.

There is no discrimination against any race, gender or status in the Ananda Math. Anyone who manifests the attributes of the Daivi Sampas or has a sincere desire for improvement is worthy of respect. Respect is based on character and not on birthright.
