Our aim is to inspire in one another a purpose to lead a pure and noble life, a life consecrated to humanity, to the deliverance of the human race from ignorance, superstition and sin, and to the promotion of peace, order and righteousness throughout the world.

Al who have a heart for this work, whatever may be their religious opinions or affiliations, are cordially invited to meet with us.
