आर्यसमाज के दश नियम Ten Principles of Arya Samaj
१: सब सत्य विद्या और जो पदार्थ विद्या से जाने जाते हैं, उन सबका आदिमूल परमेश्वर है
 
God is the original source of all that is true knowledge and all that is known by physical sciences.
२: ईश्वर सच्चिदानन्दस्वरूप, निराकार, सर्वशक्तिमान्, न्यायकारी, दयालु, अजन्मा, अनन्त, निर्विकार, अनादि, अनुपम, सर्वाधार, सर्वेश्वर, सर्वव्यापक, सर्वान्तर्यामी, अजर, अमर, अभय, नित्य, पवित्र और सृष्टिकर्त्ता है । उसी की उपासना करनी योग्य है ।
God is existent, Conscious, All Beautitude, Formless, Almighty, Just, Merciful, Unbegotten, Infinite, Unchangeable, Beginningless, Incomparable, the support of All, the Lord of all, All-pervading, Omniscient and Controller of All from within, Evermature, Imperishable, Fearless, Eternal, Pure and Creator of the universe. GOD alone must be worshipped.
३ : वेद सब विद्याओं का पुस्तक है । वेद का पढ़ना-पढ़ाना और सुनना-सुनाना सब आर्यों का परम धर्म है
The Vedas are the books of all TRUE knowledge. It is the paramount duty of all Aryas to read them, to teach them to others, to listen to them and to recite them to others.
४ : सत्य के ग्रहण करने और असत्य को छोड़ने में सर्वथा उद्यत रहना चाहिए ।
All persons should always be ready to accept the truth and renounce the untruth.
५ : सब काम धर्मानुसार अर्थात् सत्य और असत्य को विचार करके करने चाहियें ।
All acts ought to be performed in conformity with dharma (Righteousness and Duty) i.e. after due consideration of the truth and the untruth.
६ : संसार का उपकार करना इस समाज का मुख्य उद्देश्य है । अर्थात् शारीरिक, आत्मिक और सामाजिक उन्नति करना ।
The primary object of the Arya Samaj is to do good to the whole world i.e. to promote physical, spiritual and social progress of all humans.
७ : सबसे प्रीतिपूर्वक धर्मानुसार यथायोग्य वर्तना चाहिए ।
 
Your dealings with all should be regulated by love and due justice in accordance with the dictates of dharma (righteousness).
८ : अविद्या का नाश और विद्या की वृद्धि करनी चाहिए ।
Avidyaa (illusion and ignorance) is to be dispelled, and Vidyaa (realisation and acquisition of knowledge) should be promoted.
९ : प्रत्येक को अपनी ही उन्नति से सन्तुष्ट न रहना चाहिए, अपितु सबकी उन्नति में अपनी उन्नति समझनी चाहिए ।
None should remain satisfied with one’s own elevation only, but should incessantly strive for the social upliftment of all, realise one’s own elevation in the elevation of others.
१० : सब मनुष्यों को सामाजिक, सर्वहितकारी नियम पालने में परतन्त्र रहना चाहिए और प्रत्येक हितकारी नियम में सब स्वतन्त्र रहें ।
 
All persons ought to dedicate themselves necessarily for the social good and the well being of all, subordinating their personal interest, while the individual is free to enjoy freedom of action for the individual well being.
