Chairman Massage

During the past 45 years I have endeavoured to raise the Consciousness level in the country through strengthening and restoring places of worship and carrying out training for many thousands of young people, but the Consciousness level overall has continued to decline at an alarming rate, to the point where it is obvious that Mankind will destroy itself

I see this happening during the course of this century as has been prophesied, a small part will survive, for them the knowledge of how thing actually are will be important, this knowledge will help them build a sustainable and just World.

This knowledge we seek to gather and sow in the hope that some of those who survive would be familiar with this knowledge and lead in the building of a new World. In the meantime all we can hope for is that a Enlightened Leadership will arise in the World from the Universe that can unify Mankind and lead it to salvation.

Precepts and Practices I follow

  1. I believe all those who work for me are human beings who should be treated with due respect and dignity regardless of their financial, educational and social status and background.
  2. I treat employees as members of my extended family; if they have problems especially serious illness in their families I try to help them. I nurture and develop them to fully realize their potential, it gives me intense pleasure to see them develop in life and live happily with their families.
  3. I believe honestly, integrity and being humane to be of paramount importance. People who work for me are always extolled to try to be good Human Beings, they are given extensive training on this aspect of their lives.
  4. I tell employees how I expect them to behave and act, after that I trust them to conform. If they do something to destroy that trust, I will discuss it with them and assess if they will change and can be trusted again, if they cannot regain my trust then they can no longer work for me. Intrinsically I trust my team and they know it and live up to it.
  5. I very much believe in and foster team spirit, management and employees are all engaged in a series of actions as a team that has a set goals to achieve, we all have our part to play, we can all contribute ideas as team players, be critical but always respectful. Team members are given responsibilities and remuneration in keeping with their abilities, but as members of a team they are all equally important and treated as such regardless of the function they perform
  6. I always strive to create a happy working environment. In such an environment employees are most productive and creative, they must look forward to coming to work and leave as happy individuals who have contributed to the sustainability and development of the institution, and even at home think how they can do something positive for the institution.
  7. It is my experience that people when they rise in an organization, get power, money and position develop a false sense of Self which is egotistical and totally destructive both to themselves and those around them. By always being humble, kind and considerate I set the example that they are forced to follow. Those who work for me expect these same leadership characteristics from anyone that gives them orders.
