A person who is truly looking the Truth, has no need in the charges shown beneath. Everything is simple. A true student understands that for reaching self awareness he needs to focus on it, putting aside everything that stands on the way of learning.

One needs to fight his drawbacks to reach happiness and health ( physical and spiritual).

This charter was created with those Students, who has been practicing self development for many years , who realized the necessity of following strict rules in this live and decided to share their experience.

Here are some of the rules:

- Search harmony with yourself and the outside world.

A Vow of the Student


My goal is to reach the state of Enlightment, Happiness , Harmony and help all living beings to stop their suffering.

To reach this goal I develop my heart, following the way of Endless Grace, Endless Moral Purity,

Endless Patience,

Endless Diligence ,

Endless Wisdom and Aspiration of Truth,

Endless Devotion to the Knowledge and Teacher, who leads to Understanding of Truth,

Endless devotion to my brothers and sisters, who follow with me the path of Learning.

I develop my body , making it strong and healthy.

I seek to fulfill my human Duty to my family, my country and the whole world.

I follow this Way and do my best, not wasting a moment,

And nothing can stop me.


Notice:

-It's not good to become fanatic.

-Every moment one should check the Truth of his Knowledge- then all shadows of our mind will be gone.

-Devotion to the Truth is to be developed first of all.

- Devotion to Knowledge and Teachers is to be measured by their closeness to the Truth.


Karate, Thai Chi and Zigun offer first of all individual workin retreat. The teacher shows the methods of self development, but the student usually works himself, focusing on his inner world and not getting distracted on the world outside (including the teacher).

Many systems call the outer teacher 'false', as main task of the student is to find his Inner Teacher- as inner voice of inner self is always individual.
