“Maneri gahane tumi a’cho, a’cho prabhu sada’ jege a’cho…” (4380)


Baba, You are always remaining in the depths of my mind– You never
leave me. You always remain awake. You go on working day and night, beyond
the time. You never stop. Baba, whatever You want to do, You go on doing.
Baba, this whole expressed universe is Your eternal game. You are
ever-present: beginningless and endless. You are ever intoxicated in Your
divine flow. You are the Goal of everyone– everyone wants You. You are
remaining with one and all.
Those who are trying to come close to You by their virtuous deeds and
shravan, manan, nididhyasana, & dhyana, only they are able to come to You.
Only they are able to realise You and have Your grace and proximity. Baba,
You are grace-Personified…

Note: Mahapryan is a veritable threat to the existence of Ananda Marga
because in His discourse about Six Spokes of the Social Cycle, Baba has declared
that the existence of the Preceptor is essential. Yet, the dogma of
Mahaprayan dictates that Baba is gone.

Carefully read the below letter and check for links at the bottom about
other letters about this dangerous dogma of Mahaprayan.

Nowadays so many of the groups are running around rampantly proclaiming
that ‘my faction is propagating the gospel of dharma’. Each of the dogmatic
groupist agencies are involved.

So really all it takes is a careful look at their behavior to see how far
they are correct, or not.

Not long ago one factional party again printed CC-1 and included the ‘Appendix’
about so-called Mahaprayan in the publication. So we should evaluate
whether such a thing places them in the category of propagator of dharma or
agent of dogma.



By now all are certainly aware that ‘mahaprayan’ means departure and that
it refers to the death of any mortal being. This fact everyone is aware
about. Because each and every day there are hundreds of ‘mahaprayan’
notices in the daily Bengali newspapers. And these ‘mahaprayans’ refers to
bankers, stock-brokers, politicians, university professors, restaurant
owners etc. The list goes on and on. Because when any normal type of human
being dies then the family understands that their close person is now
dead– gone. So they say that their mahaprayan happened.

Obviously then, if the term ‘mahaprayan’ term is used in AM for Oct 21,
1990, then those people using that term acknowledge in their mind that Baba
is gone. Because that is the significance of the term. And not only that,
but those people in the general public who hear about this function will
also think that our Guru is gone– finished. In which case if we ever go to
do pracar with such persons they will think that our Guru is not available,
gone. Because that is the clear-cut faulty message they have gotten from
the current ‘mahaprayan’ function.

That is why so many margiis pay no attention at all to the “mahaprayan”
function. Because all margiis and wts feel the eternal presence of Baba in
their heart– in their mind. That is why all are abandoning mahaprayan.
Because Baba is the divine Sadguru who ever remains along with us in which
case who can say that He is gone.

Baba says, “The one formless, beginningless and infinite Parama Brahma
(Supreme Consciousness) is the only entity to be attained by living
beings-That alone is Jagat Guru (the Supreme preceptor), That alone has
revealed Brahmavidya (intuitional science) to us through the medium of the
name and form of Anandamurtijii. Unit beings must be made to appreciate Its
majesty.” (CC-II, p.1, point 1A)

Thus the word of dharma is– Baba’s divine teaching is– that He is always
with us because His presence is eternal. That is the dharma of the day, now
and up to eternity.

By default then, the ‘mahaprayan’ event moves in the extreme opposite
direction. It says that Baba is gone, thereby branding the mahaprayan
function as nothing but a dogma or illogical falsehood.

About this point there are countless stories and teachings from Baba that
demonstrate that the dharma dictates He is eternal; whereas dogma cries out
that He is gone. Already so many margiis have written well-supported
letters about this idea. And of course anyone doing proper sadhana
automatically realises this truth: That Baba is ever present with us,
always showering His blessing.

Baba says, “Utilizing the vibrations created for eternal time by Shrii
Shrii Anandamurtiji through janusparsha and varabhaya mudras, take yourself
and the entire universe ahead along the path of all-round welfare. Omn Shanti”


How then did the dogmatic Mahaprayan function come into existence? And why
is it still being printed by certain groupists in our AM books? Let us take
a look.

In 1990, everyone knows that Sarvatmananda was pushing hard to keep himself
in the helm and to keep his B brigade on top. That was his chief and
foremost plan. To that end he did everything and anything to falsely
propagate his group’s superiority.

Sarvatmananda invented the dogma that all Baba’s discourses were originally
given in Bengali and he had that printed on the first page of every Ananda
Marga publication. That was one of his dogmatic inventions.

Then side by side Sarvatmananda got the idea to proclaim that Baba’s
Mahaprayan (‘The so-called Great Departure’) happened in the land of
Bengal– in Kolkata. By this way Sarvatmananda hoped to create a steady
stream of visitors and worshippers to Kolkata. Such a ploy would ensure
huge money coming into the Tiljala B-group office and it would give a false
sense of superiority to the land of Bengal.

So with his crooked intention, Sarvatmananda launched his dogmatic
Mahaprayan invention and at the sword or by giving them gifts of post and
power all Central Committee members signed it. Such is their standard.

By that way in 1990 the dogmatic Mahaprayan function took birth.



Since then so many of the other camps have had innumerable opportunities to
undo this Mahaprayan dogma. But they never could muster the energy,
courage, or interest to carry it out.

It is true that out of their groupist interest, some in Rudrananda’s camp
have tried to strike down the Mahaprayan program. But then after a few
minutes they again forget about it and go back to sleep. Because their work
is fueled by their own factional agenda to bad-mouth B group; they are not
fueled by the eternal truth and inspiration of dharma. That is why they
cannot sustain their stance and that is why even though they have been
ruling all these years still the Mahaprayan appendix is appearing in CC-1.
That black mark is still there in our AM books.

Proof being that in the latest published Caryacarya part 1 Hindi edition
printed at A’nanda Mudran’a’laya in Mumbai (July 2005) pg 86, there is
still the false appendix of mahaprayan, titled ‘Mahaprayan parishistha’.

So that is proof of Rudrananda’s team lackadaisical efforts. It is just
like how they continue to delete the paragraph about margii rights from the AM
Revolution discourse. In both cases these are dogmas which Sarvatmananda
started and which are still remaining in our Marga– for one reason or

And various other teamsters are no different. All have placed their greasy
finger prints all over the mahaprayan dogma– and embraced it. And indeed
it is well known who are the ones primarily responsible for
unleashing that latest Hindi edition of CC-1 (2005) that has the false
appendix about mahaprayan.

So in this display of dogma, all the groups are implicated; none can
proclaim to be the messengers of dharma. All are stuck in dogma.

Whereas true Ananda Margiis know well that Parama Purusa is eternal and
that Baba resides forever in our hearts. He is the winner of our battles,
He is the doer of our sadhana, and it is His constant blessing that brings
us to the victory mark.

Thus all the groups exposed their dogmatic leanings but propagandising
about the false mahaprayan program. Because if really they were dharmically
opposed to it they would have rooted it out. But instead they let it fester
in the pages of our AM books.


Here is Baba’s pin-pointed direction about dogma.

Baba says, “All dogma must be rooted out. You should start a revolution
against dogma.” (PNS-16, p.58)

Thus all existing dogmas such as the so-called Mahaprayan program that were
imposed on AMPS society by the various groups should be eliminated
permanently. That is Baba’s strict guideline.


By Baba’s grace the divine reality that He is ever with us is reflecting in
the minds and hearts of all Ananda Margiis– the days of the mahaprayan
dogma are numbered. Because all understand that He is always with us.
Baba says, “Parama Purus’a always remains with you, within the very core of
your heart. So search within, O spiritual aspirant, not without, but
within, within your very existence.” (AV-12, p.41)




Selfish versus Generous

Baba says, “The human mind has two contradictory inherent tendencies: one
of acquisition, the other of sacrifice. The more one advances along the
path of evolution, the more the tendency, the spirit of sacrifice, becomes
prominent.’ (YP, ‘Faculty of Knowledge-2’)

Note: In this grossly materialistic era, the inherent tendency of
capitalists is to collect and hoard the various resources of this earth.
What they see, they want to keep. This is their greedy and defective
approach. They only follow that narrow-minded path of acquisition. In
contrast, A’nanda Ma’rgiis have come onto this earth to serve others. With
that expanded outlook, with that spirit of sacrifice, A’nanda Ma’rgiis
engage in all kinds of welfare activities for the people. This is our way
of living. Our tendency is not to acquire but to distribute, share, and
supply all the resources of the earth to each and every human being. Thus
ours is a broad-minded, neo-humanistic approach. That is why we can say
that there is a heaven and hell difference between capitalism and Ananda
Marga. Capitalism subsists off the lowly tendency of lobha (greed) whereas
our Ananda Marga flourishes on the idea of spreading all the riches and all
the love throughout this vast cosmos.
