The regeneration of society is the greatest need of our civilization, and therefore the ancient ideal underlying the institution of the Home must be accepted and practised. No culture worthy of the
name can come into being when that ideal is lost sight of.
In this series of articles the philosophical background of the Grihastha Ashrama is presented and the moral principles which are its logical corollaries explained. All readers will find these articles informative and interesting, and the intuitive among them will derive inspiration and instruction to improve the moral texture of their own lives and thereby contribute to the building of true homes.
To this series on “The Building of the Home” we have added an article entitled “House Warming,” also written by the late Shri B. P. Wadia, and published in the first volume of The Theosophical Movement, on the 4th of October 1931. “A Note on House Warming,” which is also published in this brochure, has never appeared in print but was written for a student at his request.
May this small volume help many to make their homes radiating centres of Light for the benefit of the Nation and of the World! (The Indian Institute of World Culture)
