A Guide to Human Conduct is a book published by the philosopher and social reformer Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar aka Shrii Shrii Anandamurti (1921–1990). The volume of 55 pp. was released for the first time on "Ananda Purnima", i.e. the birthday of P. R. Sarkar on the full moon of May[2]1957 in Jamalpur (India).

Herein the author, speaking about morality, explains Yama[3] and Niyama[4] as the foundations of intuitional practices (Sadhana) on a rational basis. Sarkar shows as the ancient teachings of self–control and selfless conduct derive from the deepest understandings of human psychology, and are the keystones for the highest human potentials. The book ends with basic instructions on the intuitional process of Iishvara Pranidhana.
