Baba teaches us that only those truly great ideas which broaden our minds in 360 degrees should be accepted. Because only then will we understand that we are all one.

Subject: How Baba Deals with Hypocrites


“A’loker ei ja’tra’pathe prabhu tumi saunge theko…” (PS 3396)


O’ Parama Purusa, on the path of this journey* of divine effulgence,
please grace me by remaining with me all along. If, while moving ahead on
the path, I stop, then please don’t leave me alone. Baba, keep me along
with You, in Your close proximity.

Baba, since eternity You were with me & You colored me in Your color.
Now, even in these odd hours, please do not forget this very thing: That
You will remain with me all the time.

Baba, at the end of the journey only You are there because You are the
Goal. And according to Your playful liila You go on pulling everyone close
to You by showering Your grace. Baba, due to Your blessing, in sadhana when
my mind becomes ensconced in You and I become drenched in Your divine
nectar then my ‘I-feeling’ gets lost in You, merged in You.**

O’ my dearmost Baba, on this path of forward movement towards You– in
all my duties and practices– please keep me at Your lotus feet. Baba, this
whole entire life is a spiritual journey towards You. Baba, please keep me
in Your divine shelter always…

*Journey= our spiritual way of living such as asana, pranayama, dhyana,
sadhana and all our devotional practices related with Sixteen Points.

**Where one’s unit I-feeling ends then only Parama Purusa is there. Then
one will dissolve or merge into Him. So when a person becomes completely
ensconced in the deepest samadhi, then in the sahasrara cakra one will
taste that divine nectar, and their whole existence will be inundated with
His infinite cosmic grace.

Note: The Bengali line has been written in phonetic spelling, according to
the way in which it is spoken and sung.


We are aware that in our Marga, straight, clean conduct has far more values
and importance than any other quality. A classic proof of this is that
during different DMCs, as a Guru Baba graciously treated everyone equally,
whether rich or poor. In the DMC pandal, all margiis irrespective of their
nationality or economic status were sitting on the ground / dusty carpet
inside the pandal. It is not that there was a special air-conditioned
lounge arranged for wealthy people. Never was it like that. Rather all sat
on equal seats before Beloved Baba.


When one very important political leader, Guljarilal Nanda’, came to see
Baba, he wanted to desperately to have personal contact. However Baba did
not allow him because his conduct was not at all good. That time that
negative political leader was holding a very important minesterial post in
Central Gov’t of India. And in that capacity he was doing varieties of
nasty activities. But in an attempt to get PC this politician followed Baba
from Delhi to Bombay airport. But Baba refused to give him the time of
day– means he did not get the chance to talk to Baba even. Because Baba
maintains only the strictest standards on dharma based on proper conduct.


Another story is coming in my mind. Before ’70, when Ananda Marg was very
small, those days Baba was living in Jamalpur. Then one big capitalist
Hanuman Prasad Poddar came with bundles of millions of rupees to offer to
Baba. He took initiation so he could meet Baba since those days getting
Personal Contact was very easy. In this way this capitalist reached to
Baba’s room. And then and there he offered those bundles of rupees to Baba.
And he was thinking that Baba should give him some blessing so that he
could multiply his crooked business. But by seeing that money, Baba became
furious. And with anger He scolded that capitalist cheater that, ‘Why did
you bring this dirty money?!.

Then in dharmic fashion Baba took the bag and threw it out the window.
Hanuman Prasad Poddar was shocked with astonishment. And he ran outside to
pick up the money from the street, where it had scattered. In the mean time
Baba shut & locked the door from the inside.


So this is the way Baba deals with people– according to their mental
feeling. In other organizations money often plays a significant role. But
in Baba’s personal life, never was it like that. His relation with each and
every margii is totally based on devotion, and devotion alone. And that
devotion is related with the conduct. Without proper conduct, devotion is
not possible.


Similarly we should deal strongly with those who hypocrites who believe in
unity just with the tip of their tongues. Such talk has no value, rather it
belies their low mental colour. But our strong approach we should force the
situation so that their actions– no their tongue– reflect a unified and
dharmic approach.

Therefore those who give high talks about unity but side by side engage in
curtailing margii rights, ruining the Bhukti Pradhan system, distorting
Baba’s discourses, making their groupist tiirthas, infusing the dogma of
Mahaprayan, creating Fake Ananda Vaniis– all such persons are not for
unity, rather they are just groupist exploiters and power mongerers. And
they should be dealt with accordingly.

Of course this hypocrisy is the case with those top-dog leaders of the various
factions and sub-factions who preach high things about oneness but spend all their
24hrs indulged in groupist and dogmatic activities.

We all know who these people are – they are our dear brothers and sisters
who need help. Our duty is to help them and keep our Marga on the straight
path. Falling into groupsim is easy nowadays because “everybody is doing it.”
If one is not in a group it is difficult to survive. That is why unity of
moralists is needed in AM, then all will come forward and work together as
one family, and those few hypocritical group leaders will not have a base of
support. So they will be force to change their ways.

Remember, some think that unity can be achieved by mixing and matching all
the groupist parties together. However, keep such groupist agendas and gluing them
all together is not right. This type of approach has nothing to do with unity. That is
inviting more trouble. It would be the same as trying to from a just government
by picking representatives from various corrupt offices and compiling them all
together. Never will that bring a righteous government. Similarly, pasting
various groupist conspirators together under one roof and having them share
the power is but a mockery of unity. That is why step by step all are abandoning
this idea and instead embracing the view that unity can only be formed by those
sadhakas who practice and preach AM ideology. And that is evident by their conduct.

Thus for real unity, a pure and dharmic mind is essential and that will be
evident by one’s straightforward and righteous actions.


Here following are Baba’s decisive and clear teachings on unity:

Baba says, “All fissiparous tendencies and group or clan philosophies which
tend to create the shackles of narrow-mindedness are in no way connected
with spirituality and should be discouraged.” (PNS-3)

Furthermore Baba teaches us that only those truly great ideas which broaden
our minds in 360 degrees should be accepted. Because only then will we
understand that we are all one.

Baba says, “Spiritual philosophy does not recognize any distinctions and
differentiations unnaturally made between one human being and another, and
stands for universal fraternity.” (APH-2, p. 128)

Unfortunately the actions of groupist is completely contrary to real unity.

Baba says, “One human society is divided into different nations, and one
nation is divided into different religions; religions also have different
castes, and castes also have different sub-castes — what kind of situation
is this? We have only learned how to divide and subdivide humanity, and we
never learned how to unite the people. This is all due to the defective
teachings of dogmas…Dogmas are psycho-physical diseases.” (PNS-9, p.46)


Unity comes only on the point of ideology when mind is moving toward Parama
Purusa– otherwise unity is impossible.

Baba says, “Inner channelisation and one-pointed conversion into
psycho-spiritual pabulum brings about radical changes in individual and
collective life. The psycho-spiritual approach makes a person deeply
introversial, one-directional, strong and dynamic…Such a magnanimous and
devotional mind rises above petty quarrels and inter-personal and
inter-group conflicts.” (PNS-12, p.15)

Baba concludes, “The entire society of A’nanda Ma’rga is founded on a
common ideal, the goal of becoming one with Brahma…the unity in a society
founded on the ideal of Brahma will be everlasting.” (PNS-3)


WT Conduct Rules

Baba says, “We are all the children of the same Father, we are all the
members of the same family. By fighting against all kinds of evil forces,
we will establish the glory of our Father and the glory of our family.”
(Point #13 of ’14 Points’, WT Conduct Rules)

Note: A few fallen, degenerated, and disgraceful Wts are going astray from
this fundamental rule by spreading the poison of groupism and by creating
division in the society– all of which is completely against neo-humanism.
This is all happening due to greed, lust of power, desire for prestige etc.
Unfortunately such persons are still in the uniform of Wts so we have to
recognise them. As they have tainted the glory of Lord Shrii Shrii
Anandamurtiji by their sinful, power-hungry ways. Indeed by all this they
have destroyed the sanctity & unity of the family.

Note 2: Those who are sincere margiis adhere to this above cited rule since
the spirit of this conduct rule is common to one and all.
