A Proposal for a World Constitution Based on the Works of Shrii Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar by Chandra Shekhara
This book explores how the many aspects of Shrii Sarkar’s Progressive Utilization Theory (PROUT) come together with principles of Neohumanism and his spiritual philosophy to provide a framework for the establishment of a world government, guided by a world constitution.
After an introduction, the constitution is presented as a preamble and six articles. The articles deal with 1) the purpose of the world government and world constitution, 2) meanings of specialized terms used in the constitution, 3) a charter of principles also called a bill of rights, 4) the responsibilities of the world government, 5) the structure and function of the world government, and 6) a method for amending the world constitution. This is followed by a discussion of how the world government and constitution could be implemented. Finally, a complete version of the text of the constitution is presented. Over 500 end-notes provide access to Shrii Sarkar’s specific writings on different topics included in the constitution.
The book is meant to provide students and followers of Shrii Sarkar with a deeper understanding of his views on the purpose and structure of a world government, a concept that he began discussing the late 1950’s. Shrii Sarkar believed world government would evolve through several phases, and this would enable time for people to adjust to the new concept. While the various phases are described in the book, it focuses on a mature phase of world government in order to allow for a more complete and complex discussion of it.
Special attention is given to Shrii Sarkar’s idea of a Charter of Principles which reserves rights to humans, animals, and plants. Another focal area is Shrii Sarkar’s concept of sadvipras. He believed that these morally and spiritually evolved people “serve all human beings selflessly and lead others along the path of all-round advancement.” He sees them as a key to establishing and running a successful world government. A description of how sadvipras would do this is addressed in the later sections of the book.
The author, a former lawyer who studied world constitutional literature and Shrii Sarkar’s contribution to it over several decades, received feedback from over forty senior students and scholars of Shrii Sarkar from six different continents. Their recommendations and contributions strengthened and broadened the constitutional proposal.
