“Ye a’guna jva’liye gele saba’r mane liila’chale…” – P.S. #4087


Baba, the fire of devotion which You have ignited with Your divine play
will never extinguish. By Your grace it burns brightly in each and
everyone’s heart. It will burn and resonate across all space and time &

Baba, the tune of the song which You are singing and the song in which
You are loving everyone, that is saturated in each and every molecule of this
earth. In the firm foundation of sama-samaj-tattva (Principle of Social
Equality), the equality and straightforwardness which You have given
will go on pouring sweetness during this entire yuga and beyond, in this
animate and inanimate world, & up to eternity.

O’ my dearmost Baba, Your attributions are infinite– You are gunatiita
[1]. On the one side You are shapeless and on the other side You are
glorifying Yourself in Your own form. Baba, You have come on this earth
with Your own samkalpa. You Yourself are the ever-perfect Controller of
everything. Baba, Your liila is unfathomable and beyond the description
and capacity of words…


[1] Gun’a’tiita: One of the infinite characteristics of Parama Purusa is
that He is beyond the gun’as, beyond all the binding principles like
sa’ttvagun’a, rajogun’a, and tamogun’a.

Baba says, “Why is He beyond the scope of all attributions [binding
principles]? There are two reasons. One is that He is the creator of everything, so
He is the creator of qualifications also, attributions also. So how can
He be within the binding scope of those principles, of those
qualifications? And certainly He is beyond the reach of these
qualifications. In Sam’skrta, qualification or attribution is called
“gun’a”, and He is called “Gun’a’tiita”, that is, beyond the bondage of
any gun’a.” (AV-12)



By reading the below, you will clearly understand what is meant by the
joke, “their kundalinii is at the knee.” This is one of the more
humorous things floating around this time of year.

Though there is a serious side to it as well.

So go ahead, read the below and share your views.


In the stage of sa’lokya – the lowest stage of realisation – the sadhaka
feels that they and their Lord are in the same world, i.e. the same
loka. The aspirant thinks, ‘Both I am here and Parama Purus’a is also
here in this world.’ (Reference NKS, Disc: 3)

The moment the kundalinii awakens from its dormant state in the
muladhara cakra, one gets this basic feeling of spirituality, that “I
and my Lord are in this world together.” That is the stage of sa’lokya,
the lowest stage of realisation.

The irony is that the dogmatic mahaprayan program dictates that Parama
Purusa is gone – He is not in this world – He is living in some far
distant place, not here. Thus the entire premise of so-called mahaprayan
is below the lowest stage of realisation. It is below sa’lokya.

Sa’lokya states that Baba is here, and the dogmatic mahaprayan program
states that Baba is gone.

It is well known that at the dogmatic mahaprayan program the crude chant
is repeated that, “Oh Lord, You have gone to some distant world, You are
not living here with me, please grace me from Your far distant place.”
This is the lowly dogmatic feeling of the mahaprayan program.

That is why many say that those who attend the dogmatic mahaprayan
program do not even have the most basic feeling of spirituality – they
are not even at the level of salokya. Their kundalinii has not even
awakened to that small degree at the base cakra – or they ignore
that feeling.

Baba is with us, but their mahaprayan program states that Baba is gone.

So the running joke is that to enjoy the dogma of mahaprayan, one’s
kundalinii must even below the muladhara cakra, their kundalinii must be
at the level of the knee(!), i.e. way below the lowest cakra. Many have
been laughing about this.

Only when the mind is sunk in that darkened state – with their
kundalinii at the knee – can one attend & enjoy the so-called mahaprayan
program. That is the on-going & hilarious joke.

On the one hand it is humorous and on the other hand it is pitiful that
some of our brothers and sisters are suffering in this extreme ignorance.

In contrast, if one has even the lowest level of realisation, sa’lokya,
then they will be above the standard of the dogmatic mahaprayan. In that
case, they will not go rushing off to attend that crude event. Then
their kundalinii will not longer be at the level of their knees.


Here is the next point that relates with the dogma of mahaprayan.

Baba recounts how long ago in Bengal, a family would marry their
daughters when they were just 2 or 3 years old, and sometimes even
before they were born.

And then if the husband died young, which was quite common in those days
as there were many childhood diseases, then the girl would have to
suffer and live her entire life as a widow, undergoing all kinds of penance.

Even on the hottest days of the year, during ekadashii the girl could
not take water. The entire family would be eating and drinking to their
heart’s content but the girl had to suffer and fast without water. If it
was so hot, then they would pour a few drops of water into the girl’s ear.

This was the cruel and inhumane treatment going on those days – all due
to the darkness of ignorance. It was all baseless, devoid of any logic
and rationality. But people did it because their minds were sunk in
total dogma.

And here is another irrational dogma that was propagated in Bengal.

In AV 9-10, Baba describes how any woman who heard the vedic chants
would get punished by having molten lead poured into her ears.

Thus, by not using their brain, they just pushed the whole society
toward destruction.

And now in that same land of Bengal, they are championing the dogma of
mahaprayan. This is their irrational and illogical approach. They are
not understanding that Parama Purusa resides in the heart.

Instead, year after year, they are proclaiming and observing the false
notion that Parama Purusa is gone.

But this cannot last – just as later on the those in Bengal discussed the matter
and used their rational mind and stopped the mistreatment of young widows
in Bengal, similarly sadhakas in Bengal will one day rationally review and reject
the dogma of mahaprayan. And they will feel ashamed that how all theses years
this meaningless and anti-devotional program was held in their locale.

It will not be long before the so-called mahaprayan is totally a thing
of the past, just some relic that people look at and think, “I can’t
believe people would actually attend and participate in the MPD dogma
that Baba is gone.”

Due to the very narrow sentiments of a few, this mahaprayan dogma is
still hanging on by a thread.

With the fresh air of rationality, the dogma of MPD that Baba is gone
will be totally removed from this earth. Why? Because ultimately people
do not like to follow dogma.

People want to rejoice and bask in the presence of Parama Purusa and not
get bogged down in the lowly dogma that Baba is gone.


It is with love and affection that the above is written – to help open
the eyes and mind of those who unfortunately got stuck in the dogma of

They do not realise that they are going against Baba’s wish. He did not
forget anything nor is Baba’s philosophy incomplete. By celebrating the
dogma of mahaprayan, those worshipers are charge-sheeting Parama Purusa
that He forgot to give this program in Caryacarya. So they added it.

When in fact He has given everything. What He did not give was not meant
to be. Such should be that status of the mahaprayan dogma, i.e. gone.


By Baba’s grace we should awaken all, especially other Ananda Margiis,
to the divine truth that Parama Purusa is in their heart.

Those involved in the dogma of mahaprayan should not be left to suffer
in their lowly state, where their kundalinii is stuck at their knees, or they
are not using their rational brain.

It is the unfortunate situation that to understand, attend, and enjoy
the dogma of mahaprayan, one’s mind should be in total darkness, devoid
of an iota of rationality and realisation.

Let spirituality and rationality reign in our Marga, and by His grace we
will all realise the divine truth that Baba is always with us.

Baba says, “He actually resides in the heart of a devotee.” (DT-2, ‘Yoga
& Tantra’)

Baba says, “When you attain awareness of Him, you find that He was all
along with you in your search. He was seated in your heart.” (AV-23,
‘God Is With You’, 23 May 1971, Ranchi)


Deciding Factor of Beauty

Baba says, “The notion of what is beautiful or ugly, or good or bad in
human beings changes from age to age, and in different environments. Those
who are black-complexioned will say, `How beautiful black is. Why is that
man so white? Has he contracted leukoderma, i.e. white leprosy? How
repulsive, how utterly repulsive!’ That is, human judgement is relative; it
changes according to time, place and person. In one particular country of
the world, people decompose small fishes, make a sauce out of them and then
bury it in the ground. After three months, when the sauce is so rotten that
its odour can be smelled even a mile away, they dig it up and eat it with
rice and pulses. `Oh how delicious,’ they exclaim. But if we were to eat it
we would complain, `How obnoxious, how repulsive!’ In that same country, a
gentleman was frying luci [puffed, unleavened bread] in cow’s ghee. The
village chief came up to him, saying, `Can you please go and cook your food
in some other place, far away from here? We have no idea what you’re
cooking, but whatever it is, it smells terrible. We can’t stand it any
more.’ It means they do not like the smell of pure cow’s ghee, which, for
us, is a very nice smell.” (AV-8, p.9-10)
