Baba

Toma’re a’mi ceyechi (PS 3000)

Purport:

Baba, I have wanted You in hundreds of forms, inwardly, within
every pore of my mind. O’ Lord of my heart, why did You not come?
Why You did You remain afar? Is it because of Your wounded ego.
Baba, I have wanted You.

Baba, keeping Yourself invisible, You are singing with delight.
You make the river of melody flow to satiate my heart. The strings
of Your viina, with its sweet resonance, floats & brings me to the
distant sky. Baba, I have wanted You.

O’ Baba, this divine attraction of Yours is impossible to avoid.
The sweetness and love of my mind races unto You. What a blissfully
sweet nectar You have spread all around. By Your grace, Your divine
fragrance always remains in my heart. Its tune, its pollen and Your
love draws me to You – not paying heed to any restrictions or
obstacles. Baba, by Your divine pull, I am rushing towards You.

O’ Lord of my heart, why did You not come, I have wanted You…

== THIEF INSIDE THE HOUSE ==

~ AN INTRODUCTION ~

Namaskar,
When Guru has specially given something in a particular manner or method
and then certain people in AM attempt to swap out the main ingredient
and instead insert something else, is that not like having a ‘thief
inside the house’.

BABA’S SUBLIME IDEALS

We all know Baba has graciously come on this earth to spread His sublime
ideals amongst the whole humanity. His goal is to put forth teachings
that will allow and enable all human beings to grow and prosper and live
peacefully together. In short, during His advent, we can say that His
main emphasis was to put forth AM ideology.

And for that to happen, He needed to ensure that what He spoke and what
He told told was properly understood by the people. Because His
directions, guidelines, and instructions are AM ideology– nothing else.

THE NECESSITY OF TEACHING SANSKRIT

For this reason from the very outset, from the get-go, Baba spoke in
ways most conducive for us to understand His divine ideals. Accordingly,
He began educating us about the Sanskrit language. Because Sanskrit
contains many of the words, phrases, and concepts needed to teach the
ideals of AM. So Baba used Sanskrit as a definitive base for propagating
His ideals. Furthermore, to ensure that the Sanskrit words were properly
understood, He clarified and expounded upon their meaning and usage.
This He has done in countless discourses; this anyone can verify. Thus
teaching Sanskrit became part and parcel of spreading His mission.

WAYS IN WHICH BABA EMPHASIZED SANSKRIT

Indeed Baba has used Sanskrit in so many unique ways in our AM. He has
put the Roman Sanskrit alphabet in the beginning of every AM book; He
has made the system for giving everyone Sanskrit names; He has given all
our mantras in Sanskrit; and He carefully explained the meaning of
Sanskrit words– like bhakti, dharma, tantra, mantra, Ista– in His
various discourses. Plus there are so many other examples how Baba has
used Sanskrit to put forth His AM ideology. All done so that everyone
could understand the various teachings which He wished to convey to the
humanity.

Thus from 1955 up through 1990, Baba taught us more and more about
Sanskrit so that we could develop a better understanding of His sublime
ideals of– because other languages did not have words to express what
He wanted to say.

THE REASON FOR EXPOUNDING UPON

That is why early on Baba explained about the importance of language in
discourses like ‘Expression and Symbolisation’. And that is why in
countless discourses in Ananda Vacanamrtam and Sabhasita Samgraha Baba
explains the meaning, derivation, and application of so many Sanskrit
words. Indeed such a large number of His discourses begin in this very
manner.

And then later on, when a strong foundation of understanding Sanskrit
had already been established, then Baba spoke in greater detail about
Sanskrit and its special relation with all the other languages around
the globe. Thus in His books Varna Vijiana, Varna Vicitra, and Shabda
Cayanika, Baba is further explaining the essence of the Sanskrit and its
link with all the major & minor languages spoken on this earth, from
French to Hebrew to Spanish to Urdu, and from Latin to Greek to Hindi to
Swahili, and from Tagalo to Bengali to Angika to Chinese, and from
Korean to Japanese to Portuguese to English etc.

Baba says, “In Ma’gadhii Pra’krta, as in Bengali, Oriya, Assamese,
Maethilii, Bhojpuri, Angika, Magahii, Chattrishgar’ii, Na’gpurii, etc.,
there is no difference between masculine, feminine and neuter genders in
the genitive case.” (VV, chapter 10)

And again, all of this was done for the greater goal of not highlighting
any particular language per se, but so that Baba could clearly put forth
His AM ideals in a way which was most comprehensible to us.

THIEF IN THE HOUSE

Unfortunately, some have understand all this entirely, and in order to
highlight their own language, they propagandise day and night how Baba
is highlighting the importance of Bengali. For example, in each and
every AM book, Baba has designated a particular page for delineating the
Roman Sanskrit alphabet. But if you open the Bengali version of those
same books certain Bengali Dadas named that very page as the Bengali
alphabet, ‘Bangla Varna Mala’. Such is an example of their thievery.
Baba has given something and they have switched it for something else.
It is just like putting one’s own personal sign on the front of someone
else’s business. It is unethical, illegal, and totally duplicitous.

Verily the Sanskrit alphabet is closely related with so many Indo Aryan
languages, but no other language community took away Baba’s title of
Sanskrit alphabet and put their own language name at the top of the
alphabet page in AM books. Only certain top Bengali Dadas committed such
thievery and distortion.

And they did not stop there, they are also trying to proclaim the series
of books like Shabda Cayanika & Varna Vijiana as being dedicated to the
study of Bengali. When in reality Baba has given those series discourses
to explain Sanskrit and its link with other languages so that others may
best understand that teachings of Ananda Marga.

But this fact those Bengali Dadas & their agents do not like to
understand. Instead, day and night they engage in their silly agenda of
the Bangalisation of the holy house of our Ananda Marga.

OUR AIM

True disciples have no other aim in life than to highlight Guru’s
teachings. That is the goal– not the Hindi-isation, Angli-cisation,
Sino-isation, Spanish-isation, or any so-called isation of Ananda Marga.
Only our goal is to propagate the Ananda Marga which Guru has given.
This is our sole reason for coming on this earth.

Tragically, some have some other agenda, some other ulterior motive. And
even worse, some of these people are living right here in Ananda Marga
and they are trying for the Bangalisation of AM.
And this we must not allow.

Only we should propagate the true Ananda Marga which Baba has given.
That means highlighting His teachings and not some narrow-minded agenda.

FUTURE POINTS TO BE ADDRESSED

Please excuse me as this topic is very long and there are innumerable
points to convey. So to best respect the recent poll which shows that
letters addressed to this network should be shorter in length, I am
closing my letter here. In follow-up I may write again soon, yet also
request other of our margii brothers and sisters to address this
important topic.

Here is a glimpse of what is to come:

* Sanskrit does not have its own script, so when some books like Shabda
Cayanika were first noted down in Bengali, then some top Dadas
capitalised on this and tried to twist the whole topic as being about
the Bengali language. Such is their style of thievery when in fact
Sanskrit has been written in so many Indian languages from Tamil to
Kannada to Hindi etc, but no one else tried to say that what Baba spoke
was exclusively about their language. No one else had such audacity.

* Baba’s emphasis on language holds universal appeal as He is
propagating AM ideology, thus He wants for all the languages of the
world to be expanded to best convey human thought and understanding.
This He has encouraged in so many discourses and talks like, ‘Expression
and Symbolisation’.

* Baba’s teaching of Sanskrit grew from the teaching of prefixes and
suffixes to a full linguistic, historical, social, and cultural survey
of Sanskrit and how it relates to today’s world based humanity– all so
that everyone could best understand His sublime ideals of Ananda Marga.

* And so many more points are coming.

BABA’S BLESSING

By Baba’s grace our special endeavour is to propagate what He spoke in
its original form and not any other side agenda like the Bangalisation
of AM. Because the very words which Guru spoke are mantra for us and
that alone can lead the humanity into the golden era.

Baba says, “Finally one must remember, Mantramu’lam’ Gururva’kyam.” (AV-6)

Namaskar
Sudhakar

Note 1: ONE EXAMPLE OF MANY

Here below in this below section from chapter 10 of Varna Vijiana, Baba
is explaining about the formation of so many languages, because in this
series of books Baba is again and again showing that since Sanskrit is
the mother of all languages, then naturally any complete discussion of
Sanskrit will involve numerous other languages as well.

Baba says, “In Ma’gadhii Pra’krta, as in Bengali, Oriya, Assamese,
Maethilii, Bhojpuri, Angika, Magahii, Chattrishgar’ii, Na’gpurii, etc.,
there is no difference between masculine, feminine and neuter genders in
the genitive case.” (VV, chapter 10)

This proves how Baba is talking about all the languages and indeed in
this book there are so many reference to Hebrew, Latin, French,
Japanese, English, and so many other languages.

***********************************************
Age of Marriage

Baba says, “The female body attains maturity at the age of eighteen years,
while the male physique attains maturity between twenty-two and twenty-six
years of age. No marriage should be performed below these years.” (TD-5)

Note: Baba’s above teaching is very concentrated and addresses multiple
issues. One of which is that because young parents are not adequately
mature and have been indulging and therefor misusing their undeveloped
bodies, their offspring may suffer from birth defects. This is a very
critical issue.

Here are further points to keep in mind.

1. When young married person start misusing their undeveloped organs,
then those organs may not function properly their entire whole life.

2. This may result in their progeny having lifelong health issues.

3. This is not just related with just first child but all their
children since their glands [i.e. of the parents] have been affected
permanently.

4. Those in this predicament should warn others – that is all they can
do. They cannot repair themselves. Those glandular defects are lifelong.

5. That is why in the west millions of parents are becoming sterile.
They have a strong longing to have child and to satisfy this longing
they adopt etc because they cannot procreate. This is mostly due to
indulgence at an early age.

6. Early indulgence leads to the problem. That is what Baba is
telling in the above teaching.

7. That is why there is a growing birth defects and instances in of
autism in countries where people indulge sexually at early ages. For
instance: About 120,000 babies (1 in 33) in the United States are
born each year with birth defects; and autism is the fastest-growing
developmental disability in that US at a 1,148% growth rate

8. So Baba’s above mandate is the order of the day. People should
not marry nor sexually indulge before the ages He has delineated in
His above teaching.
