Ajah: tenets

These are the tenets of Ajah Dharma they are flexible, because I’ve read them from my own heart, and things from the heart are not written in words, they are feeling that can be desiphered differently by every person. If there is ever a question as to what you should do, follow you heart…

Five Tenets (the Five Perfections):

Peace

Love

Compassion

Humility

Integrity 

When a person looks within and deciphers the scripture of the heart, when one consults the higher self. The holiest laws are found to be these or other similar set of laws. To love is to be loved, to be compassionate and peaceful is the greatest gift you can give to the world…. and as long as we live as men we shall live as men with integrity.
