Baba

“Lukiye path cala’ ekii liila’, lokalocane keno na’hi a’so…” (P.S. 3698)

Purport:

Baba, You are Ajana Pathik, You are the most loving One who moves
throughout this vast universe doing everything but in Your journey You
always keep Yourself hidden. You move around secretly. Baba, You do all the
things but nobody can see You; You do not like to come within the field of
vision.

O’ my Dearmost, to whom You love, they want to search You in their mind;
they want to hold You in their heart by the process of shravan, manan,
niddhidhya’san & dhyana. But in Your divine liila You do not like to be
seen. You go on moving secretly. Why like this. Why is Your style so
secretive? Baba, You do not like to move around following the straight,
clear-cut path whereby everyone can see You. That type of movement You do
not do. Baba, the eternal truth of straightforwardness which has been
established since ages, even a wee-bit of that You do not follow in Your
movement. Rather everything You do in hidden fashion.

O’ my Revered One, it may be also possible that my understanding is not
complete so that I do not properly comprehend You. Baba, by the ordinary
measuring scale You are immeasurable. If anyone wants to understand You and
get You, then You escape and never get held. Then remaining distant, You
just smile. Baba, what type of liila is this. You go on doing everything while
remaining hidden, out of my grasp. O’ Baba, I long for You and surrender at
Your alter…

== BP ELECTION PROCESS 2010 ==

Note: 2010 is an election year. Some BP elections have already been held
and many more are coming up in the next 1 – 2 months. Already the leaders
have set their plans in motion to get their chosen canditate in the seat.

They cemented their agenda for the various bhuktis during New Year’s DMS.

Be alert and ready. The Fake BP Manual of ’97 is still in vogue. Know
your rights and be ready to oppose all wrong doing with regard to BP
elections. This is our collective duty.

Namaskar,
This entire letter looks at how the Fake Bhukti Pradhan Manual issued in
1997 has been used as a weapon by groupist leaders to destroy the BP post.

This manual has been the cause of so many fixed elections: 1998, 2001,
2004, 2007, and now the same is trying ot be done here in 2010.

Awareness and vigilence is the only cure, lest they once again manipulate
things according to their own agenda.

BABA’S REVOLUTIONARY APPROACH: CREATI0N OF BP POST

Everybody knows that the Bhukti Pradhan (BP) post is part and parcel of a
unique system given by Baba wherein family people are actively involved in
the leadership of a dharma organisation (AMPS). In the past no pseudo guru
had the courage or vision to put forth such an idea. Only our all-knowing
Sadguru Baba has put the plan in motion that all people– whether sannyasis
or family people– should be actively involved in the administration of a
spiritual organisation, thereby bringing dharma to the masses. Such is the
revolutionary approach of the BP system given by Baba.

STATE OF BP POST AT PRESENT

However at present in AMPS, our Bhukti Pradhan system is in a state of
shambles. This also everyone recognises. The BP post has become a
non-entity in AMPS life whereby those margiis who oppose the leading
faction are ousted from the BP position. In that way so many BP’s are
either marginalised or just sit on the BP chair as a stooge of the ruling
group. All acknowledge that in today’s social milieu of extreme groupism,
the voice box of the BP has been shut.

WHAT IS THE CAUSE OF THE DOWNFALL OF THE BP POST

The next question then becomes how did all this happen. And while there are
various factors involved, it cannot be denied that when the groupist rulers
threw away Baba’s original BP guidelines and instead created their own Fake
BP Manual (’97), then that became one distinct cause of the downfall of the
BP post. Because that Fake BP Manual (’97) contains so many wrong rules
which allow the ruling group to turn the BP post into a mere puppet
position etc.

Even then in the minds of some it is not clear how all this is happening. A
few are not understanding how the Fake Manual is used by factional leaders
to control the BP post. Thus to help bring the matter into the open
foreground and make it crystal clear, various margiis have decided to
address points one at a time from the Fake BP Manual in order to show how
the Fake BP manual contravenes our pristine AM ideology. This letter begins
that series.

BABA’S DIVINE TEACHING: NO EXPULSION

As we all know, one of the first and foremost tenets of our AM society is
that it incorporates one and all. Everyone is looked upon as a child of the
Supreme and a member of our human family.

In that light Baba has firmly declared that no one can be expelled from
AMPS. In our AM way of life there is no such thing as expulsion.
Baba says, “Ananda Marga has formed a society which frames its laws on the
basis of common ideals in order to develop the idea of one-ness of all
humanity. This society is radically different from any existing society,
for it provides a society with a common bond where there is no distinction
between class or sex, where no one is declared an outcast…” (AFPS-7, p.6)

And here below Baba reiterates the same idea: That expulsion is not
accepted in Ananda Marga.

Baba says, “Harsh social punishment such as creating outcasts…do not find
any place in our society.” (AFPS-7, p.6)

So by all this it is clear as day that expulsion, debarment,
disqualification etc are not facets of our AM way of living. That is not
part of our social dharma.

UNIDEOLOGICAL GUIDELINE FROM THE FAKE BP MANUAL

Now let us take a look at but one of the many ways how the Fake Manual
contravenes our AM ideology. First let us remember that expulsion is not
allowed in our Marga. Do you have that idea in mind? Good, now let us
proceed.

Here is one of the unrighteous (adharmic) rules from the Fake BP Manual.
In order to vote or be a BP candidate, the Fake BP Manual declares that:

“He or she must not be expelled.”
(Fake BP Manual 1997, chapter 1, section 13, point #9, pg 12)

Thus in clear cut language the groupist rulers have put forth the crude
edict that no one may vote in the BP election or run for the BP post if
they have been expelled. So the Manual makes the false assumption that
expulsion is legal.

Yet we all know that according to Baba expulsion is not allowed in AMPS.
So the Fake BP Manual clearly ignores Baba’s dharmic teaching and puts
forth the unjust & fake policy that expulsion is allowed and that if anyone
is expelled then they cannot participate in the BP elections– neither as a
candidate nor as a voter. This is the type of outrageous manipulation that
is rampant throughout the Fake BP Manual.

And in their groupist policy-making schema this is what the groupists do.
If factional heads feel that any margii is not accepting their dictatorial
and unholy leadership then that margii will be “expelled” and forbidden to
participate in the BP election process.

So when courageous & dharmic margiis or BPs protest against groupist
wrongdoings then the factional leaders expel them and point to chapter 1,
section 13, point #9, pg 12 of their Fake BP Manual and declare that
“expelled” margii ineligible to participate in the BP elections or hold the
post of BP.

Indeed there are innumerable cases where this has occurred and if we are
not careful this devious rule will be invoked thousands of more times in
the future.

Thus in the past Rudrananda’s faction or Sarvatmananda’s faction has used
expulsion as a way to railroad BP elections and control the BP post. And
what is their justifcation: chapter 1, section 13, point #9, pg 12 of their
Fake BP Manual. And so long as this obscene rule exists, in the future any
groupist leader will take advantage of this unholy rule.

UPCOMING BP ELECTIONS

So when the upcoming BP elections are in our midst then we
should be well informed and ready to dismiss all the fake rules which
factional leaders have slipped into their Fake BP Manual. Because it is a
guarantee that whichever groupist regime is in power during the BP
elections, then they will invariably rely on the Fake Manual to manipulate
the course of events– once again rendering the BP post as a useless
position.

When in fact we all know that the post of Bhukti Pradhan is an upstanding
seat in our Marga and that the post should be held by a strong margii who
upholds the teachings of dharma. That is Baba’s teaching and that is Baba’s
vision: That the BP chair will play a vital role in upholding AM ideals.
But this the groupist heads are unwilling to accept. Because they are so
greedy for power that they do not want anyone else to participate in the
governance of AMPS.

As a last reminder, we should all be alert and vigilant as we approach the
upcoming BP elections. We should demand that the Fake BP Manual be put in
the garbage where it belongs and instead Baba’s dharmic BP guidelines
should be implemented.

BABA’S BLESSING

By Baba’s divine grace, the tide is changing and all the dogmatic rules
like those in the Fake BP Manual are being rejected by the people. And a
new phase of peace and harmony has arrived.

Baba says, “Humanity is now at the threshold of a new era. We do not want
any dogma. The age of dogma is gone. What we want is an idea based on
Neohumanism. We are for the entire created world; and not only for human
beings or living beings, but for the entire animate and inanimate
universe.” (AFPS-5)

Namaskar,
Ramendu

Note 1: HOW THE FAKE BP MANUAL CAME INTO EXISTENCE

Everyone knows that Sarvatmanandji’s name itself is printed in bold letters
on the inside cover of the Fake BP Manual. Because in those days the B
bandits were still in power and they gave the important ISMUB Secy post to
their captain, Sarvatmananda. That is why where it says “published by” then
Sarvatmananda’s name appears. Because he is the one who first published the
Fake BP Manual. Of course now Rudrananda is king of the roost so he is
sinfully enjoying all the manipulations of the Fake BP manual. Rudrananda
is using all those crude edicts to satisfy his groupist agenda. And that is
the way it works– whichever group is in power takes advantage of this fake
BP manual.

Note 2: FAKE MANUAL AVAILABLE

Those leading the elections – i.e. the ruling faction – is bound to share
their adopeted, yet “cherished” election manual. Demand a copy from your
local acarya, RS, or ISMUB representative. And then sit down with them
and review the aforementioned points. They must be called upon to answer
to all the unideological points from the Fake BP Manual. Letting this
election transpire in silence is not good. That is why all margiis all
around the globe are standing up and demanding for Baba’s original
BP guidelines to be reinstated.

*********************************************
Ajapa – Japa & Adhyana – Dhyana

SadGuru Baba says, “If a man constantly chants his japa mantra or meditates
ceaselessly, then the rhythm of this japa, the rhythm that adores the Guru
during dhyana, will act as auto-suggestion during the time of sleep,
although he does not remember it…A sadhaka with this capacity continues
his dhyana and japa even in sleep. This kind of japa is called “Ajapa’
Japa”; that is to say, without performing japa, one is actually performing
it. And it is called “Adhya’na’ Dhyana”, which means that without actually
meditating, the act of meditation is going on.” (YP, 1991 Edn, p.150-51)
