The ideal of Anandashram is
‘Universal Love & Service based on the vision of divinity in all'
Swami Ramdas, endearingly called Beloved Papa says,
“Unless we cherish this ideal we cannot love all alike, and there is no hope of peace and goodwill in this world. Universal love is born of universal vision, which in turn comes to us when we resign ourselves to God who is eternal, changeless Truth, ever residing in our hearts... We are living in a peculiar world. We see diversity but we must find unity. We can find unity only when we probe into the diversity and reach the underlying Spirit."
