Baba

“Egiye calo, egiye calo…” (PS 156)

Purport:

My brothers and sisters, we should move on towards our goal, Parama Purusa.
Today the glorious dawn has come. We should take everyone along with us; no
one should be left behind. Everyone is ours; Nobody is alien. We all
belong to one family– Our Father is Parama Purusa. We have to move
together on the path which He has shown us. Human society is one and
indivisible, no fissiparous tendencies should be allowed to divide it.
Baba’s divine grace is with us…

== WHY GROUPISTS ARE NOT RELIABLE ==

Note: This letter contains LOTS OF NEWS regarding the way today’s
groupist leaders operate and how & why they bring depraved workers into
key posts. Anyone interested in the health & repair of our Marga society
should be 100% aware of what is reported below.

Namaskar,
We all know that Baba places great emphasis on the quality of our leaders.

Baba says, “Ideal leadership is the wealth of the society… [and] will
also fulfill the hopes and aspirations of the people.” (PNS-21)

People can depend upon ideal leaders to adhere to the code of dharma and
do the right thing cent-per-cent of the time.

In contrast, poor leadership is hell for the society.

Baba says, “Today there is catastrophe and misery in human society and
there is one reason: the defective leadership of society.” (AV-31)

Tragically, this is not just the case outside the Marga; within our AM
society also we are suffering from extremely defective leadership. All
of today’s so-called leaders in AM are flooded with groupist sentiments
and factional agendas.

Here below is clear testimonial of the drastic maladies that occur when
our Marga leadership is in the hands of a few groupists. By reading the
below, it becomes quite clear that groupists are not reliable.

MAIN WORKING STYLE OF GROUP LEADERS

Before, investigating the case studies below, we should attune ourselves
to the overall working style of groupist leaders.

We must keep in mind that their main intention and desire is to grab
more and more power – irregardless of anything else. And the easiest way
to hoard power is to surround oneself with spineless individuals who can
be easily controlled. And the best way to find such spineless people is
to seek out those Wts who have badly fallen from the code of conduct and
say to them, “You will now work for me, but should you ever cross me
then I will expose your failings in front of all.” And then they put
those degraded souls in top posts.

Group leaders – all of them – regularly resort to this type of nefarious
strategy. By this way they can ensure that they will keep their power.

The main operative principle is that the people around them are their
stooges – and such stooges will never challenge their bosses for power
nor point out any wrongdoing in the leadership.

Stooges are stooges – i.e. meek people who are content to be fed and
clothed – all the while basking in their own degradation, safe that
their group leader will protect them so long as they themselves are
loyal to the chief.

Such a relationship works well for both the group leader and their stooges.

For this reason, top factional chiefs employ this type of trick time and
again as a means to build and protect their stature.

Along the way, all traces of justice, integrity, honesty, and dynamism
utterly slip away from the upper echelons of our AM society. It is the
common margiis and sincere Wt’s who suffer the ill effects.

As you will see below, this type of corruption is rampant amongst all
the group leaders of each of the main factions: B group, Ranchi, and EC.

Only by making others aware of the problem – raising the collective
consciousness – can this situation then be solved. Through strong
circumstantial pressure, the current leaders will either rectify
themselves or be forced to run away and hide. That will pave the way for
true, moral leadership in our Marga.

CASE STUDY #1:

B GROUP’S HANDLING OF KALYANESHVARANANDA

Sarvatmananda has placed Kalyanaeshvarananda in the trusted post of PRS
(Public Relations Secretary) because Sarvatmananda has Dada K in the
palm of his hand. If Kalyaneshvarananda were to ever support any other
group or fail to tow the party line, then he’s be in big, big trouble.
Sarvatmananda would expose him to the bone.

What is it that Sarvatmananda would expose? The following.

(Note: Many of the news and events in this letter are very recent
happenings. This first case study is an older crime that has long been
kept hidden, that is why it is still pertinent.)

Early on, Kalyaneshvarananda was posted in Kashmir and he fell in love
with a young margii sister who happened to be married already.
Nonetheless, Kalyaneshvarananda and this young female expressed their
attraction for one another in secret. And to be true to her feelings,
this innocent young girl opted to divorce her husband and only pursue
her affair with Kalyaneshvarananda.

In the course of things, Dada K got her pregnant and this margii sister
gave birth to a baby girl. Kalyaneshvarananda took an active role in
raising his daughter and true to form she looks exactly like her father.
The resemblance is remarkable. Of course the local margiis noticed the
similarity, but they could never imagine that really this girl was
Dadaji’s daughter because Kalayaneshvarananda was being very secretive
and because margiis had implicit faith that no Wt would do such an awful
and deceitful thing and still walk around in uniform as if he is one sadhu.

Anyway, as the young baby grew up, then Dada K was vigilant to find a
proper husband for his daughter and he ultimately got her married to one
fine man.

Kalayaneshvarananda managed all of this in seceret, i.e. underground.
The truth never came to the fore.

But Sarvatmananda is well aware of all of this. That is why he has been
keeping Dada K in his hip pocket and garlanded him with the important
post of PRS. Because should the world ever find out about Dada K’s
secret, then his reputation would be ruined. With this silent threat in
hand, Sarvatmananda has been able to control and manipulate Dada K each
and every moment.

So Sarvatmananda has exploited Kalyaneshvarananda’s weakness and given
him a key post, because in return Sarvatmananda knows that Dada K’s
position is like one worm, helpless to do anything at all. By this way
Sarvatmananda is able to rule as he likes.

Actually all of this is quite typical. Sarvatmananda has long used such
trickery to manage his career. There are any number of cases and examples.

Now let’s examine a more recent circumstance in another group.

CASE STUDY #2

RUDRANANDA’S CUNNING MOVES IN RANCHI

We all know that the post of COS (Central Office Secretary) is a
cherished position and generally commands a lot of respect and prestige.
The current PRS of the Ranchi faction is Citsvarupananda and his boss is
Rudrananda. Let’s take a look at how Dada C came to be COS.

As many may or may not know, Citsvarupananda has a long and notorious
history with girls. It seems that whenever he even sees a female, his
entire glandular system would go haywire (i.e. crazy) and
Citsvarupananda would become totally blind and infatuated. His conscious
mind would not work, i.e. “out to lunch”.

In and around Bombay, this weakness of Citsvarupananda was well known to
everyone. That is why he was never given a high post. And when he got
posted outside to GT sector – where ladies are known to be scantily clad
with lots of skin showing – then Citsvarupananda was running around like
a mad dog. He would see all the half-naked young girls and start jumping
in all kinds of ways. Finally, there was no other option than to bring
Citsvarupananda back to India.

Till recently, for the aforesaid reasons, he was always given a lower
posting in India.

All that changed when Rudrananda decided he needed a new stooge for a
top post. In that way, suddenly Citsvarupananda’s degraded ways actually
became a selling point and his resume became like gold. With such a
notorious history, he would be easy to control. Such a person could
never raise his voice or protest any wrong. Thus Rudrananda – being the
clever man that he is – seized the opportunity. He placed the
characterless Citsvarupananda in the top chair of COS.

The move has worked well for Rudrananda in that Dada C is a good stooge,
but there has been some fallout and damage control with the margiis.

Just recently, Citsvarupananda couldn’t control his vrttis and overcome
with lust he grabbed and strongly kissed one very young margii daughter.
The poor young girl was horrified that this aged sannyasis could betray
her trust and dishonor her in this way and she went to her father
completely frightened and upset and told him everything. The father of
the girl became totally irate – furious.

Till that time, the father had been a strong support of Ranchi so he
quickly contacted Acting GS of Ranchi, i.e. Svarupananda. The father
complained bitterly to Svarupananda about the poor dealing of
Citsvarupananda.

In response, Svarupananda has tried to cover-up the entire scandal. He
just scolded the margii father and threatened him to keep mum. So the
whole situation is quite disgusting and grotesque. One margii girl has
been shamed & tortured and lost all faith in sannyasis, yet Rudrananda
and Svarupananda are not taking any measures against her attacker
because Citsvarupananda he is an ideal stooge. Thus the Ranchi kingpins
(Rudrananda & his buddy Svarupananda) are protecting Dada C and at the
same time leveraging their weight against this margii father to keep him
quiet.

Thus still, Citsvarupananda has been able to happily retain his chair of
COS.

Those are all the details of this scandal. But here are some more facts
that relate to the situation. Svarupananda has allied himself to the
powerful Rudrananda in hopes of one day becoming PP and side by side
Citsvarupananda is the diiksa bhai of Rudrananda. Thus both of these
people exist with the sole intention of serving and pleasing Rudrananda.
So Rudrananda is not at all inclined to discipline them at all – rather
he is happy with the situation. Especially when Rudrananda is gathering
his forces and keeping everyone class as he prepares to kick out
Nigamananda.

Before moving on to the scandals in EC, let’s first take a moment to
examine the current power play brewing in the Ranchi faction HQ.

MORE OF RUDRANANDA’S POWER PLAY

Rudrananda has all his cards in place and is on the verge of ousting
Nigamananda from the Ranchi camp. At present, Rudrananda has all his
stooges in place at the central and sectorial levels. And Rudrananda
wants Nigamananda out as Dada N did not help him become PP. Internally,
Nigamananda knew that Rudrananda is himself a brahmin and carries a
strong brahmin sentiment. So Nigamananda understood well that if
Rudrananda became PP then Rudrananda would do ethnic cleansing on
Bengalis, Orriya, Non-Indians and he will only keep brahmins in AM. That
was Nigamananda’s fear – so he did not support Rudrananda’s claim to
become PP.

Because of all this Rudrananda wants to ruin and destroy Nigamananda.

And Rudrananda has all the pieces in place. In a very crafty manner, he
has made Nigamananda look bad in front of everyone, while he himself
(i.e. Rudrananda) shines as if he is some type of sadhu. Whereas,
Nigamananda’s face has become totally black and he sits alone now in
isolation. With one big kick, he will soon be ousted from the Ranchi camp.

SHORT SUMMARY

By all of the above it is quiet clear how Sarvatmananda and Rudrananda
have their stooges in place to support their own claim to power. And
even though these stooge succumb to all kinds of degrading behavior,
still they keep their top posts because their band leaders need such
brainless and spineless people in order to keep their power. So it is
all one dirty, endless cycle.

And the sole cause behind it all is the groupist mentality.

CASE STUDY #3:

THE CRUDE SITUATION WITH EC’S LEADER

The situation with EC is quite similar, though it plays out in a
slightly different manner. Because of the power dynamics in EC, it is
the leader himself how is indulged.

Everyone on earth knows well that Tiirthananda (the EC leader in NY) has
a long history with Didi Sumantrita. They go together to the movies,
frolick like teenage lovers in the shopping malls, and often stay
together in hotels. These two lovers even sometimes disappear together
for days on end without telling anyone. Their infatuation and behavior
is well known to everyone.

But they – certain Wts and ACB margiis – do not do or say anything
because Tiirthananda is the one who gives them their money and post.
They know that if they take action against Tiirthananda then he will not
lend his support to them anymore.

That is also the reason why Anand Giita keeps mum – otherwise she knows
she will not get any $$$.

All in all, many females & some wts are fed up with Dada T yet they
stand in support of Tiirthananda as they think he is the one who can
bring change. But when again they think more deeply those same females
get very bitter.

TIIRTHANANDA MANAGES HIS EC TEAM

IN THE SAME MANNER AS SARVATMANANDA & RUDRANANDA

Now see how Tiirthananda uses the same operative tools as Sarvatmananda
and Rudrananda.

Tiirthananda has conveniently made Nabhaniilananda DPS (Dharma Pracar
Secretary). Dada N has a big name and a big post, primarily because he
is involved only in doing own pracar – not the pracara of AM ideology.

When in Manila sector, Nabhanillananda feel into a love-making affair
with a sister – and that is not the only isolated case either. This Dada
has a colourful history in this arena of sister relations.

Yet after this mega blunder, Tiirthananda made him DPS, a very
prestigious post. Because Tiirthananda understand that this is a
convenient and strategic way to run NY sector.

And all along, Nabhaniilananda is still doing the same type of thing –
running here and there with young margii girls and boys. Still Dada N
thinks that he himself is a teenager – frolicking about and getting into
messes.

The margii children have love for Baba and are growing into veritable
sadhakas, while Nabhanillananda is just using his stature to cash in on
his desires. He is more careful and sly in NY than he was in Manila –
that is the only difference.

All the while, this is well known to his boss Tiirthananda, but
Tiirthananda knows how to grease the wheel and take hold of the sector.

Those with a rational mind are saying that Tiirthananda has learned well
from his mentors / competition, Sarvatmananda and Rudrananda.

MORE ABOUT THE EC WAY OF MANAGEMENT

Now take a look at how EC is handling things outside of NY.

Some may recall Dada Krsnasundarananda, an Ex-Wt of India birth who left
the Marga around 12 years ago while in Suva sector.

This Dada was was characterless from the very beginning as he was always
having many girlfriends during his WT life. Eventually He left from WT
ship and got engaged with one lady in Australia. He stayed in that kind
life for 12 year.

Now EC has again made him an avadhuta, without even retraining him,
taking measure for rectification, nor giving him punishment. Why?
Because EC is anxious to build their numbers & cadre in any way
possible, regardless if one is a moralist or not.

So today, this Krsnasundarananda has magically appeared on the scene and
is working in Orissa plus he gave a big lecture in Copenhagen at the
Prout conference. Sadly, poor innocent margiis intently listened to the
“great spiritual discourse” from the immoral mouth of this degraded Dada.

Those how know the his history are joking how EC has brought one more
Tiirthananda type of fellow into their group.

SCANDALOUS BEHAVIOUR IS RAMPANT

Make no mistake, there are a number of very good Wts in our Marga. Even
then it cannot be denied that many in the upper echelons have suffered
and indulged in all kinds of failings and weaknesses. Because of this
they are unable to check other workers.

Listen to this story:

The Sevadal chief Liilabodhananda bought a big, beautiful flat in Bombay
– a very expensive place. And Liilabodhananda is keeping one women there
– his lover. Central even knows this is going on but still nobody wants
to say anything to him. This Dadaji is misutilizing organisational money
and power, but when groupism is in vogue who will tell him? Nobody
because few if any have the moral force or courage and most of them
harbor this same type of black history and wish to keep their story
hidden. In that case why risk their own status by pointing out someone
else. Just let the dirt be as is. That is the shameful culture that is
prevalent now in our Marga – all because of groupism and the fight for
power.

The end result of all these shenanigans is the sheer loss of moral force
and the total degradation of our Wt cadre. Because when groupism itself
thrives then rather than being rectified and uplifted by dharmic
supervisors, workers with poor conduct are exploited and allowed to
continue their misdeeds. Such stooges become the loyal companions, or
more precisely, victims of group leaders.

We are all learning the hard way that groupists are not at all reliable
– we cannot depend upon them to lead our organisation into a new era of
dharmic activity and sentient peace.

HOW TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM

Here Baba gives us a key way how to solve the problem.

Baba says, “Regarding the Sixteen Points, it was said that a’ca’rya/a’s
or senior persons would see if you were observing them properly or not.
Similarly, I gave a directive to all that they should keep watch on one
another. No one will exempt anyone else regarding the Sixteen Points.”
(AV-23)

Baba says, “…Inspire those who are liars and criminals to live honest
lives by pointing out their defects. This is the only spiritual approach
to punish wrongdoers…” (A’nanda Va’nii #8)

The only way out of the current organisational crisis is good conduct,
i.e. following Baba’s teachings, cultivating ideological understanding,
and sharing with others what is going on.

It is time to turn over a new leaf. We must no longer allow group
leaders to “reward” Wts with loose behaviour by granting them high posts
so that that worker can then become the slave or stooge of that group
leader. This debased approach is not the way.

All must be responsible for following 16 Pts and held accountable. This
will bring about their welfare and the regeneration of our AM society.

The mere existence of any group – B, Ranchi, EC etc – is a veritable
threat to the well-being of our Marga.

Let me repeat:

Only by making others aware of the problem – raising the collective
consciousness – can this situation then be solved. Through strong
circumstantial pressure, the current leaders will either rectify
themselves or be forced to run away and hide. That will pave the way for
true, moral leadership in our Marga.

BABA’S BLESSING

By Baba’s grace the same recipe outlined for building a healthy human
society 3500 years ago is still true today.

Baba says, “The guiding factor behind the creation of the Maha’bha’rata
was dharma – the creation of a great human society in which there would
be peace, happiness, fraternity and no poverty.” (Disc MHB)

That is Baba’s teaching. Only by upholding dharma can a great society be
built. Hiding misdeeds and manipulating others for one’s own power will
only lead to turmoil. And not only that, in the end the truth will be
revealed anyway.

We should all be eager to follow a dharmic code of conduct and encourage
others to do the same.

Namaskar,
Karma Rasa

***************************************
Boon For All

Baba says, “Just as the diseased body organs can be restored to normal
by administering medicines internally and externally, they can also be
healed more safely and more perfectly with the help of Yaogika asanas
and mudras. The aim of this book, therefore, is to make the general
public aware of the Yaogika methods of treating various illnesses. My
purpose is to let people cure themselves by practicing the a’sanas and
mudras described in this book.” (YT preface)

Note 1: In the above teaching from the preface of Yogic Treatment book,
Baba is guiding us that asanas & mudras are the most perfect way to cure
and heal the human body. Hence in Baba’s Yaogika Treatment book, these
practices– asanas and mudras– stand as the main pathway for overcoming
illness and attaining proper health. Whereas the other types of remedies
given are more of an auxiliary or secondary approach.

Note 2: Overall there is a lot of confusion about this as many
mistakenly think that the herbal remedies etc are the main way to cure
oneself. But that is not correct. Asanas and mudras are the most highly
regarded and recommended way.

Note 3: Another aspect to this discussion is that Baba’s own
introduction to this topic is completely unique. Whereby He is giving
special attention and particular emphasis to the goal or object of the
book– i.e. that asanas & mudras are the main component. Whereas in most
of His discourses, rarely or perhaps even never does He so vividly
highlight what the inner teaching is going to be.
