THE BATI CREDO
Principles are timeless. They govern our lives and control the consequences of our actions. Principles are universal. They are natural laws that are self-validating. They are realities found at the nucleus of our actions.
The popular social language is often “we control our own destiny” when in fact we are not in control; universal principles control. If we accept that and follow the principles; then in that sense we are in control.
Responsible citizens strive to understand the principles which underlie their actions. Because situations may change, and certain actions may no longer apply, but the principles will remain constant.
