Baba

“A’mi toma’y ja’ni, e katha’ vilate pa’ribo na’, na’, na’, na’…” (P.S.
609)

Purport:

Baba, by Your divine grace You are mine. Even though I am aware about
Your divine Self, how I can I say for sure that I know You. No, no, no I
cannot say. Baba, in spite of my intimate closeness with You, You remain
mostly unknown to me. Baba, You are playing an unnamed tune on my mental
viina calling me– sitting in my heart constantly.

Baba, in the beautiful dawn hour when the effulgence of the moon fades
away and the petals of the lotus blossom in the pond, at that time I
awaken. And by Your grace, in that early hour all my lethargy and
sleepiness vanishes completely. At that very auspicious moment how can I
forget Your heavenly sweetness which permeates all around. Baba, You are so
gracious and charming.

Baba, although You are always hiding and trying to keep Yourself out of
sight each and every moment, even then by Your grace I know You are
everything. In spite of Your on-going, eternal liila of hide and seek, I
understand You are the essence behind each and every expression. Baba, You
play Your divine flute– all the while trying to remain hidden. Baba, by
Your grace I know that You are that singular Divine Entity, yet in Your
magical way You express Yourself in innumerable names, forms, and rhythms.

Baba, by Your causeless grace this much I know: You are mine and mine
alone…

== EASY SOLUTIONS TO THE ENERGY CRISIS ==

Namaskar,
The recent & ongoing BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is yet another
reason for us to consider how and where we are getting our energy.

THE ONGOING ENERGY CRUNCH

In these current times, the apparent “energy crunch” has everyone talking.
In the US and the so-called developed west, everyone is moaning & groaning
about the soaring price of gasoline as well as other high energy costs;
while in so-called third-world countries, doing without and finding
short-cut ways has since long been a way of life. To many the whole
situation looks bleak and only seems to be getting worse; but for us Ananda
Margiis we know well that Baba has graciously given all the tools and
answers to easily solve this “energy crisis”– permanently.

IDENTIFYING THE PROBLEM:

RAMPANT EXPLOITATION OF RESOURCES

Like with each and every problem, in the case of the energy crisis also,
Baba has clearly identified the root cause.

Baba says, “According to PROUT, economic exploitation involves the
unrestricted plunder of the physical and psychic labour of a particular
community together with the natural resources in their local area.” (Prout)

In the above Baba exposes how with their greedy hand and exploitative
methods capitalists and other negative sections of society heartlessly dig
out all the resources from any and all local areas. And that includes the
rampant manipulation and thievery of petroleum and fossil fuels etc.

This we are seeing around the globe today where big US capitalists are
unbarringly grabbing all the world’s energy resources for their own selfish
and profiteering ways. Due to this type of economic exploitation and
plunder, the globe now finds itself in an energy crisis.

But, by Baba’s grace after identifying the root cause of the problem He also
beautifully provides us with numerous solutions as well.

NATURAL RESOURCES USED LOCALLY

Baba first guides us that each and every area or district should be built
up using their own natural resources. And He simultaneously warns us not to
depend upon oil etc from other regions– near or far.

Baba says, “In a healthy economy raw materials should come from the local
area. Industries which are based on imported raw materials are always weak
industries, sick industries. A sick economy depends upon raw materials from
outside — it depends upon import. For example, the Barauni Oil Refinery in
Bihar is a sick industry because it depends upon crude oil from Assam. If
there is any disturbance in Assam or if India is balkanized, then the
refinery will have to close down. The establishment of this refinery was a
foolish act. It does not represent a healthy economic structure. It is a
sick industry, a foolish industry, a stupid industry!” (Proutist Economics)

According to Baba, depending upon oil from afar is a sick and faulty way to
build up one’s economy. In the above example Baba ridicules the idea of
Bihar using oil which comes from Asaam– both of which are states in India.
Therefore it goes without question that US dependence upon Arab oil also
represents a “sick” and “senseless” approach– since that oil is coming
from halfway around the globe.

Similarly so many former Soviet satellite nations continue to depend upon
Russia for their oil.

All these are examples are unhealthy economies that will invariably run
head-first into an energy crisis– if they are not experiencing one already.

Baba’s given response is that each and every land should be developed using
their own natural resources. And Baba provides numerous creative solutions
for each and every area to create their own fuel. Here following is but one
of Baba’s many answers to the present energy crisis.

Baba says, “Many healthy industries based on local raw materials can be
developed. For example, high-quality concentrated alcohol fuel can be
produced from sugar beet and sugar cane. Concentrated alcohol can replace
fossil fuels, as the stock of crude oil is fast diminishing.” (PE)

And further down in this letter there are listings of many other ways for
cities, states, and countries to develop their own energy– all of which
are given by Baba.

THERE IS PLENTY FOR ALL

Here first is Baba’s whole-hearted assurance that there are plenty of
natural resources for all.

Baba says, “If there were maximum utilization and rational distribution of
all natural resources, pressing socio-economic problems could be easily
solved. It is a law of nature that a mother is provided with sufficient
breast milk to feed her newly born baby. In the same way nature has
generously provided sufficient resources to meet the food and other
essential requirements of all human beings. People need to utilize these
natural resources in a proper way. Shortages of food or space cannot be
blamed on nature. These problems are essentially the results of the
mistakes made by human beings.” (AFPS-9, ‘Population Growth & Control’)

Similarly then, the energy crisis of today is not due to a lack of
resources but rather stems from the misutilisation and misappropriation of
those resources. That is Baba’s above guideline.

And here below He further tells us that each and every area has all the
necessary raw materials.

Baba says, “Nature has been kind enough to provide abundant natural
resources to every region of this earth.” (PNS-21)

As a case in point, here below Baba clearly shows us that even the
economically impoverished region of Rarh has all the energy resources it
needs.

Baba says, In Ra’r’h there are extensive deposits of coal, coal gas and
natural gas.” (PE)

By all this it is quite clear that one need not live in the middle east or
in Alaska to get the oil they need. If we remember His guidelines and look
carefully, then we will find that in each and every land there are
sufficient deposits of natural resources to create whatever energy they need.

ENERGY SHOULD BE A NOT-FOR-PROFIT INDUSTRY

Here Baba gives more insight into and significant solutions to the world’s
energy crisis.

Baba says, “The local administration will have to supply locally generated
power such as solar energy, thermal energy, bio-gas, hydroelectricity,
nuclear energy, pneumatic energy, electromagnetic energy and tidal power,
or any other power which is easily available locally. The generation of
power is a key industry which should be run on a no profit, no loss basis
so that the cost of production is minimized and the purchasing capacity of
the people is increased. For example, if batteries are produced through
cottage industries, power should be supplied on a no profit, no loss basis,
but the battery producers will be able to sell their batteries at a
rational profit. Here the power that is used to manufacture the batteries
is not an industrial commodity but a raw material. The power for such
things as transportation, communication, schools, colleges and hospitals
should also be supplied on a no profit, no loss basis to maintain social
dynamism.” (PE, ‘Decentralised Economy-1’)

So here above Baba is giving some key concepts about the generation and
distribution of energy.

1. Local governments have to create their own power.
2. Power can be generated from any number of avenues: hydro, nuclear,
tidal, solar etc.
3. This industry must run on a no-profit, no loss basis.

Looking around the globe, anyone can easily see that part and parcel of the
energy squeeze today is that capitalist multinational corporations are
using gas and oil to pull in huge profits– grabbing trillions and
trillions of dollars into their fold. All the while stripping near and far
distant lands of their natural resources. This type of capitalistic
plundering and profiteering goes entirely counter to Baba’s given
guidelines. And that is why the problem is growing today.

Whereas as soon as Baba’s above Proutistic methods are followed, then that
will ease the energy crisis immediately.

NO NEED FOR CONCERN AND WORRY

Some may now be losing hope and thinking that it will be impossible to
institute these types of changes. But actually due to the current energy
crises there are many who are already considering and implementing such
type of Proutistic methods. In each and every area this is happening. And
more about this is discussed below.

ALTERNATIVE ENERGY SOURCES

Some may think that alternative energy can only be supplied in certain key
areas. For example a few may be thinking that solar power can only be
generated in the sunny desert etc, but this is not at all the case.
In these next series of quotes, Baba gives countless solutions and
suggestions how alternative energy can be created and found in all the
regions of the world. According to Baba, there are innumerable sources of
good, useable energy.

Baba says, “Two types of power can be developed in Bangladesh — power from
oceanic tides, and solar energy. Oceanic tides can be harnessed in the
Bakargang subdivision of Noakhali district where the Meghana River enters
the ocean, and in the Chandpur subdivision of British Tripura district
where the Dakatiya River enters the ocean. Many waves and turbulences are
created by the impact of these rivers when they enter the Bay of Bengal.
Tidal power would be very cheap to harness there. Solar power can also be
harnessed, but this source of power is not so developed yet. It will become
increasingly important in the future.” (PE)

So in His above guideline Baba is telling about tidal and solar energy and
that this will play a big role in the future. Here below Baba tells further
how to generate solar energy.

Baba says, “There is no need to purchase coal from outside as is being done
now. Solar power can also be generated in the plain areas where the land is
wavy.” (PNS-19)

And with His broad based perspective Baba names innumerable ways how to
generate energy from a variety of sources.

Baba says, “Energy and transportation: Until solar energy can be
manufactured cheaply, other energy sources can be utilized, like
hydroelectricity, coal, thermal power, tidal power, geo-thermal power, wind
power and natural gas. All the raw materials necessary for transportation
are also available, including rubber, steel, mica, mica chips, mercury,
silver, copper, quartz and manganese.” (AFPS-7, ‘Parts of the Economy’)

PETROLEUM ALSO WILL NOT BE IN SHORTAGE

And in those areas where there will be continued use of petroleum, Baba
gives these two important guidelines.

Baba says, “Petroleum can also be recovered from certain types of river
valleys. Where the river bed is broad there is a chance of finding
petroleum.” (AFPS-9, ‘Geology and Human Civilisation’)

Baba says, “There may be a shortage of petroleum but elements for creating
petroleum are available in the world. We will be able to produce synthetic
petroleum.” (AFPS-8, ‘Rule of Rationality’)

Thus even petroleum will be abundantly available in the near future.

ESTABLISHMENT OF PROUT IS FAST COMING

None should hopelessly ponder that Prout will never be established–
already it is getting manifest. And quickly too.

As we all know Baba has graciously given Prout in the year 1955. And in
those days the world was not at all willing to move in that direction. For
one reason or another the leaders and citizens were quite satisfied with
the way things were going. The ideas of Prout seemed like a far-away dream.
But now only 50 years later, huge progress has developed towards adopting
Prout. Due to extreme social and economic circumstances, many communities
and businesses are consciously or unconsciously moving in that direction.
People have been forced to think in that way.

Baba has created the magic wave for all His Proutistic guidelines to be
implemented. Some are getting established by right thinking Proutists and
other Prout guidelines are taking shape simply because the ways of old are
no longer working. And this global transition is occurring at a marked
rate, i.e. quickly. And that speed will only increase exponentially in the
coming months and years.

Thus none should think that they will not see the implementation of Baba’s
Prout. Already the hard part is over: the psychic seeds and awareness has
taken root. The conditions are ripe. And very soon, more and more, we will
see the sprouting of Prout in each and every land and community around this
globe.

BABA’S BLESSING

Here following is Baba divine assurance and blessing that our human
existence will become better and better in all the spheres.

Baba says, “The progressive availability of the maximum amenities of life
will be guaranteed in PROUT, satisfying physical needs. The satisfied physical
needs will lessen the physical obstacles which inhibit human progress, and
human beings will experience all-round development, especially in the
intellectual stratum. Human beings will get the opportunity to develop in
the intellectual stratum without any hindrances. The truth of humanity, the
veracity of humanity, will go on increasing in different areas of
expression….the whole existence of human beings will become effulgent in
the attainment of the Supreme.” (PNS-17, ‘Min Req & Max Amen’)

Namaskar,
Vinay

BABA’S GOLDEN GUIDELINE

Note: Baba has given one very beautiful idea to remember while living on
this earth

Baba says, “The nonliving world cannot express its grief when it is damaged
or destroyed. To protect the inanimate world you should conserve and
properly utilise all natural resources.”

As sadhakas we have to think for the happiness and welfare of all. And by
thinking for their welfare– and overcoming human greed etc– then
naturally our human problems will be solved. By this way each and every
expression of His cosmic mind, animate and inanimate, will dance in His
bliss.

*********************************************
Crow and Cuckoo

Baba says, “It is said that there is a particular species of the cuckoo
bird that is incapable of nesting and raising its own offspring. So to
protect and save her babies, the mother cukoo gently places her own eggs in
the crow’s nest, even though the crow is her dreaded enemy. But since the
eggs of both the birds looks the same, the crow carefully cares for those
cuckoo eggs which were placed in her nest– thinking them to be her own. At
the time of birth, the newborn birds of both species are black; so seeing
the baby cuckoos, the mother crow does not initially realise that the baby
cuckoos are not her own offspring. It is only when the baby birds become a
little bigger and start to call out and cry, that the crow realises those
are not her babies. Then and there the mother crow becomes very angry,
suddenly understanding that it has gotten duped. But because of having
given long-term care and developed sincere love for the baby cuckoo, the
mother crow gives up the idea of attacking and killing the cuckoo. And
instead the mother crow raises the baby cuckoo as one of her own.” (SC-10)
