13 Point Programme
The religion that is meant by Param Pujya Sadguru Shree Aniruddha is humanity. अवघाचि संसार सुखाचा करीन। आनंदे भरीन तिन्ही लोक॥ – “I shall fill this world with happiness and abound with joy, all that be”, is his vow. The program that was chalked out to realise this vow, this religion, is the ’13 Kalami Karyakram’ (the 13-Point Programme). The programme was announced by Dr. Aniruddha Dhairyadhar Joshi on 3 October 2002. This program, as envisaged by him, is not only a means of progress, but also an easy and straightforward path of progress, so much so that the efforts put in for this will definitely be of welfare to everyone.
The 13-Point Programme is the solution to all the problems that be! May the problem be that of clothing, education, related to the environment or spiritual problem of man; it is very useful in all aspects. This programme is essential for a human being to develop his personality in all respect. This is the unique vision of a visionary. Because whatever may be your capacity, it is still possible for you to participate in each and every project in the programme and most importantly, this programme sows and grows the seeds of love and harmony in human beings. This programme is based on three important things, my love for the people around me, love of my motherland and love of my God !!!
