CHAPTER 1: INTRODUCTION.
To create this constitution it is good to stay in harmony with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights – hereafter called: UDHR – proclaimed by the General Assembly of the United Nations. This declaration was accepted by member states on the tenth of December 1948 without denials, but with eight abstentions from voting (including: the former Soviet Union, Saudi-Arab and South-Africa). This declaration that was particularly propagated by Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962), the widow of former US president Franklin D. Roosevelt, was reconfirmed by the “Millennium Declaration”, A/RES/55/2, of the United Nations which was adopted unanimously. Mrs. Roosevelt said in 1958 on occasion of the tenth anniversary of the UDHR: "Where do the universal human rights begin? On small places, close to home – so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any map of the world. But those spots are the world of individual humans; the neighborhood in which he lives; the school he attends; the factory, farm or office where he works. If these rights have no meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere else."
However, all that is, is God's unlimited energy, Rādhā-Krishna, our Mother-Father God, in a border-less universe that is associated with him, consisting of the Spiritual World or the Absolute World, called: Vaikuṇṭha in Sanskrit, in which the relative world, sometimes also called: the material world, now and then appears and again disappears. That is why all God's People, wherever they are, Live in Vaikuṇṭha. Whenever this relative world, bounded by Universal Laws set by God whatever Name people may give him, appears, for a quarter section it makes part of the Absolute World. For that reason, there are no borders in this bounded universe, nor on Planet Earth. Therefore: all borders created artificially by people are illusionary borders that can easily be crossed by devotees of the Lord. This is confirmed by Vedic Literature and by the UDHR. Therefore, in fact: Mahābhārata, our United Worldwide Nation of Sovereign and Spiritual People who are united in our Community of Peace, is already existing. But, because of the fact that people are ignorant of this situation, we needed to proclaim our United Worldwide Nation, which we did on the 15th of May 2014, and created this Constitution as By-law to the all and each influencing Universal Laws of which the Articles follow in the next chapters.
CHAPTER 2: EVERYTHING IS LOVE.
All of creation is equal in itself, because it originates from the same energy, called: Rādhā or Mata Harā in Sanskrit, that flows from one Source, called: Krishna in Sanskrit or God. Krishna means: All-Attractive. So, God attracts all and everyone. For that reason the chant of Love and respect that protects all of creation is the Mahā-mantra: Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare / Hare Rāma, Hare Rāma, Rāma Rāma, Hare Hare, given in this Constitution.
All living creatures are equal in themselves. They should all be honored and respected.
Those of them who chose to appear in a human form of life – hereafter called: humans – are all existing in a Terrestrial body of flesh and blood. Therefore they are not to be regarded as juridical entities like natural persons. Considered Spiritually, they are free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
In Mahābhārata there is only one Religion. Religion means: to know God and Love him. However: humans have the right to freedom of Religious expression in the Way of celebrating their faith or belief; this right includes freedom to change their faith or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest their faith or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.
All humans are convinced of the facts:
that life is their most precious having;
that they may use all Life forces to balance them with the forces of death, so that all Powers are in balance at all times;
that mutual understanding leads to mutual co-operation; that mutual co-operation leads to Peace and that Peace is the only way for humanity to live together in happiness;
that they may protect the natural recourses, the heritage of their children, in stead of wasting them;
that they may avoid the pollution of the air, the water and the earth, the most necessary conditions of Life;
that they may treat well the vegetation of their planet: the humble grass that appeared fifty million (50.000.000) years ago and the majestic trees that appeared twenty million (20.000.000) years ago to prepare our Planet Earth for humanity;
that they eat only fresh, natural, pure, healthy foods that are not fabricated artificially and to which no chemicals are added;
that they may lead a natural creative modest life, in which they absorb all sources of energy, harmony and knowledge, within and around them;
that the improvement of Life and humanity on our Planet Earth has to start with individual effort, as all is embedded in the atoms of which it consists.
CHAPTER 3: CONCERNING THE HUMAN FORM OF LIFE.
All humans are entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Constitution, without distinction of any kind.
All humans have the right to evolve their souls according to their Own IN-sight.
ARTICLE 4 A.
For that reason everyone has the right to education. This education is focused on the knowledge of God, so that people will know him and Love him and is given in accordance with the instructions of a Universal Preacher / Ācārya who is in the direct line of Disciplic Succession from God. Education shall be free, and can be acquired by means of our World University of Peace.
Education shall be directed to the full development of all humans and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. It shall promote understanding, tolerance and friendship among all Spiritual Districts, racial groups, groups of Religious expression in the Way of celebrating their faith or belief, and shall further the activities of our Community of Peace for the maintenance of Peace.
Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children. All education that is proven to be good for their children, shall not be made impossible by any means because this violates the Universal Laws.
ARTICLE 4 B.
For that reason everyone has the right freely to participate in the cultural life, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits within our Community of Peace.
All humans serve in one way or another. In serving God alone their free and full development is possible.
In this serving all practices of any kind may only be done in accordance with the instructions of a Universal Preacher / Ācārya who is in the direct line of Disciplic Succession from God.
If any other serving leads to exploitation of any kind, these exploitations are punished by or according to the Universal Laws.
All humans have the right to Love and to be Loved. Therefore they do not use sex for power or hidden purposes; for the satisfaction of their own ego or dominance; for any other purpose than for what it is given: the experience of the purest Joy and the highest ecstasy, given and devided, that is Love – in a legal marriage or a legal partnership.
In this marriage or partnership the man is to protect his woman and children. Therefore in Mahābhārata divorces are forbidden as they damage the social security of the family.
During this marriage or partnership man and woman are equal in discussing subjects and in convincing each other, but when the man cannot be convinced, his word is Law.
Families in Mahābhārata are entitled to special care and assistance from our Community of Peace.
However: the Spiritual Family of Sovereign and Spiritual People who are united in our Community of Peace is the natural and fundamental group unit in Mahābhārata and will be protected by or according to the Universal Laws.
All humans have the right to life, liberty and security of their being.
No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.
No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
All humans have the right to recognition in Mahābhārata as a Natural Legal Personality before the laws of all Spiritual Districts.
All are entitled to equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this Constitution and against any incitement to such discrimination.
All humans have the right to an effective remedy by a competent tribunal for acts violating the fundamental rights and freedoms granted them by this Constitution.
Penalty fees for violating these rights and freedoms are prescribed in the enclosed List of Penalty fees, which list is considered to make part of this Constitution as if it was wordily written herein.
No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.
All humans are entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by authorities who know God and Love him very much because they Love everybody, in each case that occurs.
Humans charged with a penal offense have the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to the Universal Laws in a public trial conducted by judges who know God and Love him very much.
Humans shall not be subjected to arbitrary interference with their privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon their honor and reputation. They are protected by the Universal Laws against such interference or attacks.
All humans have the right to freedom of movement and residence in all Spiritual Districts of Mahābhārata. No Spiritual District may refuse them to enter its borders without valid reason. Articles 11, 12 and 13 of this Constitution are applicable.
Humans have no need for property as they know that all things are submitted by the same energy that flows from one Source. Instead: all humans have the right to possess and to enjoy things alone as well as in association with others, and to share things.
They have the right to freedom of thought and conscience.
They have the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers of the Spiritual Districts.
They have the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and association. For that reason no one may be compelled to belong to an association within the territory of Mahābhārata.
All humans have the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of themselves and of their families according to the Universal Laws.
All humans have the right to social security according to the Universal Laws.
All humans are entitled to a social order in which the rights and freedoms set forth in this Constitution can be fully realized.
In the exercise of their rights and freedoms, humans shall be subject only to such limitations as are determined by the Universal Laws for the purpose of securing due recognition and respect for the rights and freedoms of others and of meeting the just requirements of morality, public order and the general welfare in Mahābhārata.
These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of our Universal Peace Movement: Community of Peace.
Nothing in this Constitution may be interpreted as implying for any Spiritual District, group or person any right to engage in any activity or to perform any act aimed at the destruction of any of the rights and freedoms set forth herein.
Zwartewaal, Mahābhārata, Spiritual District of Holland, Vaikuṇṭha, 2 April 2014,
Sincerely your servant,
Krishnānanda, Universal Preacher / Ācārya of Community of Peace
