I resolve to live this life as an achariyan by giving a meaning to my life and thus be a blessing to this existence. I pledge to live a value based life and thus make a difference.

  1. I am the enlivening force to the various roles of my life and it is not the roles which enable me to survive.
  2. I understand relationship is not built on agreement, but it is built on understating.
  3. I will treat everyone, as if; this is the last day of his life.
  4. I will live every day, as if; this is the last day of my life.
  5. I will accept the present as it is, for it is only the future that I can change, neither my present, nor my past.
  6. I understand I will get everything I want for life, if I can help other people to get what they want for life.
  7. I understand life’s fulfilment is in integrating the standard of life with quality of life.
  8. I will celebrate life and be the cause for celebration.
  9. I understand it is not in being born as a human being, but it is in living as a human being that I live a human life.
  10. I will analyze my experience and improve myself, by standing apart from myself and practice introspection at the close of every day.
