Baba

“Toma’r a’ma’r bha’loba’sa’ keu va ja’ne, keu ja’ne na’…” (P.S. 1423)

Purport:

Baba, You love me and I love You. This very fact is not commonly known.
Baba, about my and Your love, a few may recognise but many not. Some
believe that love between the unit and the vast is indeed possible, but
some do not believe this eternal truth.

When the garland is prepared with only an insignificant thread, some
think that it is just a collection of flowers. While others can understand
that this garland represents the very sweet feeling and deep loving
relation for Whom it is made.

Nobody cares to recognize that on even small dew drops the whole sun is
reflecting. In a similar way, the unit carries a deep loving relation with
Parama Purusa. And in its little heart, Parama Purusa remains close by.

How much energy one little molecule can assimilate, the ordinary
intellect does not realise– nay cannot recognise. The little flower which
is dancing keeping the nectar in its heart, that is the entire sweetness of
the flower and its meaningful existence. In the same way, the beauty of
human beings is to carry the loving feeling for Parama Purusa in their
heart. That is the Goal of life. And then life becomes successful…

CHARGE CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS &

ALL OTHER EXPLORERS WITH GENOCIDE / MASS MURDER

Namaskar,
Once again Columbus Day – Oct 12 – has come and gone. It is a national
holiday in the US and Columbus himself is seen as a veritable hero in
many lands amongst most of the population.

Unfortunately, our history is not correct.

Much of our global population did not get the right account about
Columbus and his fellow explorers / exploiters. Today, the harsh ways
and demeaning tactics of Columbus et al have been made known, thus more
are sympathetic to the terrible fate that has befallen native
populations. Even then, it is not enough. More awareness is needed and
our history needs to be properly updated.

Baba’s call is that we should fully reconsider and rewrite history. No
longer should it be a one-sided perspective of kings and conquerors but
should reflect the struggles and glories of the common people.
(Reference: Let History be Rewritten 29 January 1980, Patna).

By His auspicious advent and His divine vibration, the world is
awakening to the truth – justice is slowly being served – gradually
light is coming and darkness is being lifted, by Baba’s, grace.

With increased recognition & respect to native peoples around the globe,
one can only come to the conclusion that “great explorers” like Columbus
be viewed in a new light.

Specifically, Columbus should be charged for his brutal crimes instead
of being hailed and revered for discovering the “New World”.

WRONG HISTORY OF COLUMBUS

As mentioned, due to Baba’s divine vibration, in the last few decades,
things are changing. There is a growing dialog about “celebrating”
Columbus Day, or not. Should it be known as a a glorious day of
discovery or a black day which triggered countless atrocities. Today,
more and more are sympathizing with the latter.

Even then not all that much has been done in the practical field. There
remains a huge hill to climb.

After all, for generations and generations, all over the globe there has
been tremendous propaganda about the so-called greatness of Columbus,
especially in the “New World” (i.e. western hemisphere) and in lands
colonized by the western European nations.

Up until very recently, from Indonesia to Canada and from the US to
India, in schools everywhere it has been taught in an undisputed way
that “Columbus discovered America”, especially in the Euro-American
lands and colonies. Thus Columbus has been championed as a hero for
centuries.

The statement – “Columbus discovered America” – was generally
accompanied by the following myths:

(a) Prior to Columbus’s arrival, there were no people living in the “New
World” (i.e. the United States) – or maybe just a few;
(b) prior to Columbus’s arrival, the US was just mostly empty space; and
(c) with great courage Columbus navigated the Atlantic ocean and founded
this totally new place.

These were the great lies that were propagated all around.

Columbus is then seen as great discoverer – who understood the world was
round and therefore opted to sail west to India from Spain. In that
manner Columbus became the founder of the USA & North America. A land
that no one knew even existed.

That is the common history that is taught and hundreds of millions of
people have been indoctrinated into this belief.

But this is totally false.

There was an established population and thriving community of native
peoples living all across North America. Some historians claim that
there were as many as 100 million people or more inhabiting that land.

Baba has also recognised that long ago a population of Indians came west
and formed the famed Mayan civilisation in the Americas, far before
Columbus.

Baba says, “The Mayan civilization is a transplanted Indian
civilization. It migrated to Central America during the rule of the
Pallavas of South India. Thus the transplanted Mayan and Indian
civilizations existed side by side.” (AFPS-3)

As Baba makes clear – there were long established communities of people
throughout South and North America. There were the Mayans and so many
other native peoples.

What happened to those people? How long were they here? Where did they
go? What is their story?

This part of the history is not commonly told in the general society.
All people understand is that, “Columbus discovered America”, as if
before his arrival no one was here.

It is not discussed how Columbus and his crew – and those other
so-called explorers who followed in their footsteps – burned and
butchered those native people. They systematically started a genocide
that would continue for a couple hundred years until finally an entire
continent was essentially bereft of all native people. Any and all
remnants of their existence were eliminated.

For these reasons and more, Baba has given the edict and warning, ” Let
History be Rewritten” (29 January 1980, Patna).

Baba says, “I suggest that in the writing of history there should be a
radical change. The history written so far is a history of kings and
monarchs. It should be thoroughly overhauled and completely rewritten –
rewritten in the interest of humanity and the universal well-being of
the human race. If the chronicles of history merely describe who
succeeded to the throne and when, who plundered the neighbouring
countries or kingdom, and who became a minister, they will be of no
importance whatsoever, nor, indeed, of any interest to the common
masses. If human beings are to profit from the study of the annals of
history, they must reflect the weal and the woe, the hopes and
aspirations of the masses.” (AFPS-4)

A SAVAGE AND RECURRING HISTORY

Unfortunately, the brutal history about “Columbus Day” is not widely
known, yet it stands as a microcosm of a ruthless exploitation and
terrible genocide that has happened almost everywhere. Around the globe,
local people have been viscously attacked by invaders.

Here is the basic formula:

1) Intimidate, terrorise and kill as many native people as possible.

In the US, the native Americans were hunted, burned alive, cheated,
raped and by and large decimated until this one proud community of
people was reduced to a mere few.

2) Commandeer all their treasures and resources.

The Euro-Americans quickly turned not just the Americas, but lands the
world over, into their own backyard and pillaged those places for their
resources.

3) Impose a dominant culture and language.

In the US, the brutal history for centuries is that the dominant white
population would systematically abduct new borns, infants and small
children of native populations – all done to exterminate the native
culture. They would put such children into military camps, and not allow
them to speak their own language or learn the history of their people.
Plus those innocent kids would be sexually molested, indoctrinated into
the way of the dominant group, converted to Christianity and arrested,
beaten, and tortured if they speak out. Their parents were left to cry
in misery. This happened all the way up to the 1950’s.

By Baba’s grace when He gave the divine teachings of AM, the vibration
changed. Then sun started shining and a new awareness was born.

Baba says, “The Supreme Spirit within humanity, neglected for ages, has
awakened today. This awakening will initiate a new chapter in human
history. You will all be the pioneers of the new trend.” (Ananda Vanii
#1, 1 January 1956)

4) Humiliate the local people – break their morale – and impose a huge
inferiority complex.

The US Federal government and armies taught the native people to look
upon themselves as sub-human. And not just in the US, but in so many
colonized lands, the dominant European invaders forced local people into
this degraded outlook.

5) Use the native people as a free or cheap labor force.

6) Finally, wipe away their history and hail those who defeated them.

Such a formula has been applied by the dominant European culture(s) all
over: Australia, South Africa, United States, Canada, Mexico,
Philippines, Brazil and wherever the Europeans went such as Zimbabwe,
Vietnam, Bolivia etc. Almost everywhere. time and time again they
conquered the people and imposed their own language and culture, and
left the native people sunk in feelings of inferiority and woe.

Christopher Columbus is the grandfather of this heinous trend.

The European explorers tried hard to do this in India but they could not
get complete success. Otherwise India would have been much different.
Instead it is one of the only countries still in tact after the arrival
of “explorers”.

So this is not a one time event. Over and over again, native peoples
have been crushed by an invading dominant culture. By years of false
history and the manipulation of cultural values, people were led to
believe that the European culture is the uppermost. That’s why the
Christian religion became so dominant all over the globe.

And the celebration of Columbus Day stands as perhaps the so-called
crowning jewel of this horrific aspect of human history.

COLUMBUS DAY STILL SHINING

Yet, year after year, in the US and throughout the so-called New World,
Columbus day is revered as a national holiday with big parades and fancy
events. Government offices are closed, banks shut down, the Post Office
is closed – all done in honour of Christopher Columbus.

Again, awareness of the horrors created by Columbus is growing, but
there remains far more unawareness than awareness.

And certainly, no government is prepared to charge Columbus with a
crime(s).

BABA’S DIVINE VIBRATION:

GOVERNMENTAL APOLOGIES ARE COMING

Due to Baba’s divine will, a strong vibration has been generated and
since the mid 20th century, the tamasik forces are being defeated and a
proper humanity is being formed. By His grace a greater awareness is
coming.

Here are some examples of recent developments, due to His grace and the
rise of human consciousness.

“Canada’s apology follows a similar one by Australian Prime Minister
Kevin Rudd to the Aboriginal peoples in February of this year. Like in
Canada, young Aboriginals were taken from their families, often by
force, and sent to schools and homes where they were often abused,
exploited, and prevented from speaking their language or practicing
their way of life.The United States has a similar legacy, but has yet to
apologize.” (June 16, 2008)

The US Federal government is “considering” apologising for these
actions, and in fact a committee in the US Senate did issue an apology
on Aug 10, 2009, stating, “Apologizes on behalf of the people of the
United States to all Native Peoples for the many instances of violence,
maltreatment, and neglect inflicted on Native Peoples by citizens of the
United States.”

Why are such apologies and recognition needed? A proper history is
needed to give respect to those who have been treated as downtrodden as
well as to ensure such atrocities are not repeated.

By seeing Columbus not as a hero but rather as an aggressor, no sane
person will appreciate his misdeeds wherein one human group destroyed
another.

Just as no one appreciates Hitler, similarly Columbus and his fellow
invaders cannot be gloried. Their true colour will be seen for what it is.

This will not be the victory of one race but rather the victory of
morality and neo-humanism.

MUST FIGHT AGAINST ALL SUCH EXPLOITATION

The ruthless exploitation of native peoples is a common equation.

Break their backbone – make their situation pathetic – bring economic
and cultural ruination – lead them into the depths of addiction,
frustration, and despair – and on the top make “scientific studies” that
prove that this is a genetic phenomenon, not a social one.

This is the systematic way native populations have been exploited – and
Columbus is the forefather of all such exploitation. Indeed the very
journals of Columbus and his fellow explorers stand as proof of what
vile acts and atrocities they committed. There is no denying their history.

By Baba’s grace their anti-human ways are being recognised and
overturned, step by step.

Baba says, “Human culture is one, though there are some local variations
in its expression. But a particular group which is motivated by
socio-sentiment to exploit others, tries to destroy the local cultural
expressions of other groups. It forcibly imposes its language, dress and
ideas on other groups, and thus paves the way for exploitation by
paralysing those people psychologically. This is how people guided by
socio-sentiment perpetuate exploitation in cultural life.”

“This is occurring throughout the world. Is it not your noble duty to
save these simple and persecuted people from exploitation? Certainly it
is. Those of you who did not understand this before, now do understand
it clearly; or you will come to understand it later from others. Human
beings must be saved. Why should innocent people be forced to live like
sacrificial lambs? This must not be tolerated…Hence it is the bounden
duty of every rational person to save innocent people.” (NH-LOI)

BABA’S BLESSING

By Baba’s grace, the days of glorifying Columbus are coming to an end
and he will be charged with the real crimes he committed. That will set
a tone that all people should be respected and remind our humanity that
local people should be protected. By rewriting this history to reflect
the truth, such crimes will not be repeated in the future.

Baba says, “Only by writing such a history will human beings one day
prove not only to this world but to the entire universe, that Parama
Purus’a was justified in creating human beings.” (AFPS-4)

Namaskar,
Vinay

Surgery and Ancient India

Baba says, “There is a very interesting example of surgery. The cousin
of Krsna (the son of the sister of Lord Krsna’s father) was Jarasandha, the
king of Magadha, with his capital at Rajgir. At the time of the birth of
Jarasandha, the child bad to be cut out of the womb. People saw this child
and threw it in the cremation ground. Then there came a very famous
non-Aryan (raksasii) lady doctor known as Jara. She stitched the child in a
proper surgical operation and saved it. Since the lady Jara joined (sandhi)
the pieces of the child’s body, the name of the child became Jarasandha.
This proves that the people were well acquainted with surgery.” (MHB, p.
24)
