Baba

“Kare ja’tra’ halo shuru, bhule gechi se katha’…” (699)

Baba, when exactly my journey started I do not know; it is not in my
mind. I have completely forgotten the day when my journey towards You started. Since many lives, by Your grace You have been attracting me– step by step.

By Your causeless compassion I am moving in that divine liila– reducing
the radius gradually and coming closer & closer to You. How much I suffered on the way and, how many thorns pierced my feet and hindered my forward movement on the path– that I do not remember. Those memories are not in my mind.

On the journey towards You by Your grace I crossed the torturous fiery
blaze of the burning desert. And other times I got totally drenched from
the pouring rains of the thunderstorms. But, no matter what the obstacle,
by Your grace You always gave me the strength and perseverance to move on. Baba, by Your grace You are always bringing me close to You.

So many spring seasons and their beauty have come and I got intoxicated
by that attraction. And in Your longing, in Your divine attraction, You
filled my heart with devotion. And by Your grace I sang Prabhat Samgiita
songs and kiirtan with heartfelt yearning and longing. In this way my life
has passed– sometimes in dark moments and sometimes in effulgent ones.
But through it is, by Your grace gradually I have reached close to You,
under Your shelter. Baba You are so gracious. Baba, You are my everything…


== PLAN FOR KEEPING MARGIIS MUM ==

Namaskar,
As we know silent action is one very special and deeply meaningful teaching
which Baba has given. And it works in its own particular and special way.

And we also that our organisation is riddles with problems– a mess that
has originated in the upper echelons of AMPS. And it is those same persons,
and their lackeys, that try to smother or subdue margiis attempts of
protest and resurgence by manipulating Baba’s special tool of silent action.


A FEW ANALOGIES ABOUT HOW SILENT ACTION WORKS

Just as various asanas work to cure particular diseases and just like
how in ‘A Few Problems Solved’ Baba has given specific solutions to solve
certain designated cases, similarly silent action has its unique way of
functioning for opposing injustices and bringing people onto the proper
path. Means it works within its own specific sphere of influence or
jurisdiction — and not beyond that.

SOME MISLEAD IN THEIR OWN WAY

Unfortunately, some are trying to capitalise on the situation by telling
that ‘silent is the only way to approach or protest’. And in this way
silent action has become a tool in certain peoples’ hand.

The general sense is that in this material world, crude and cunning people
are always searching for ways to cheat and befool the common people.

For example when one crafty intellectual read the Bhagavad Giita then he
found the point that everyone has to face their own samskara, reactive
momenta. The basic theory being that people have to undergo the reactions
from their past life. But this point he manipulated in his own direction.

Because just see, then this negative intellectual created the theory that
you laborers must not unnecessarily make a hue and cry about increasing the
wages; your wretched condition is the result of your acquired sin which you
did in your previous life. In this life you should be “dharmic”– do hard
work with full patience and follow the commands of those rich mill owners.

Do not go on strike and do not make any demand about raising the wages.
Otherwise you will incur more sin and your future life will be dark’.
Then those opportunist intellectuals give the negative justification that,
‘your pitiful condition is your own self-creation and that is what Lord
Krsna says in the Giita’.

So see the hypocrisy of that jinani. He twisted Lord Krsna’s theory about
rebirth and facing the samskara. The point here is that exploiters always
manipulate good teachings for their selfish reasons. In His discourse Baba
clearly explains this very cunning tactic.

A similar thing has happened in the case of silent action.

HOW THEY MANIPULATE SILENT ACTION: Part I

Certain opportunists are cheating margiis and misguiding
everyone about this entire silent action theory. They tell alright, ‘If
this or that group leader is doing something wrong and doing all sorts of
injustices like curtailing margii rights, then if you are unhappy with
them then just do silent action’.

Yet all the while such opportunists are fully aware that the margii whom they are speaking with lives far, far away from Tiljala or Ananda Nagar and that
he has no opportunity to see those top group leaers.

Even then to befool that very simple margii, they tell him
that ‘follow silent action against them’.

But in such a situation silent action will never work.

For instance, you can imagine what will happen if simple village folk of
Afghanistan take silent action against top US officials. Such an attempt will be complete foolishness. Because silent action has its limitation. Its
hinterland is very limited. The person who is not living around you, who is
not in your unit, or not in your village, or not in your family, and not
living close by, and who is not in your direct line of communication, etc–
in all these situations silent action will not work.

Silent action’s arena of use is limited to the reach of one’s pathway
of direct communication. If one has regular communication with that
particular person then silent action will achieve the desired effect. But
if one does not have any communication with that person against whom You
are doing silent action, then that will be foolish.


HOW THEY MANIPULATE SILENT ACTION: Part II

Nowadays cunning people use this trick of silent action to befool and
misguide others. They tell ‘take silent action against certain group
leaders because they curtailed BP rights etc. You need not to do anything.
Do not propagate your ideas or problems in any other way– just take silent
action against them because he distorted Baba’s discourse BP system
which grants margiis a voice etc. So take silent action. But you should not
write any letter or protest in any other way. Baba has given silent action
just you follow.’ Like this they talk and manipulate some simple margiis.

Now the question arises that why do these intellectual satans create this
logic and give this type of suggestion. The reason is that they know full
well in advance that according to those adverse circumstances, silent
action will not have any effect. Time will pass by without any result.
And the era of exploitation will go on and on.

Many times we may have seen how high officials pay agents to misguide
others in the name of this silent action theory. They move around in all
the programs and spray water on the fuel of revolution. Whenever they see
that simple persons are feeling completely suffocated and want to do
something, then those agents misguide those disgruntled margiis that, ‘do
not do anything except  take silent action. You have the right to do
silent action but not anything else’.

So in this situation every sincere margii should know that cunning people
always misguide about the practicality and use of silent action. And
by this way they continue their exploitation in an unhindered way.

THE INHERENT LIMITATIONS OF SILENT ACTION

For this reason it is essential that each and every Ananda Margii be
acutely aware of how silent action really works. Here below Baba guides us:

Baba says, “Silent action will force strict adherence to our principles,
and it will put those against whom it is directed to shame.” (AV-23, p. 151)

So the striking point is that the practice of silent action forces the
person into feeling ashamed for their misdeeds. Through circumstantial
pressure silent action achieves that result. And for that, direct contact
is needed. Because if someone is sitting quietly in one part of the globe
taking silent action and the exploiting party is somewhere else far away,
then they will not feel any shame as they are completely unaware that
anyone is even taking silent action against them. So they will thus
continue on and on with their exploitation–Hence in such a circumstance
silent action will not work. So in such a scenario we should consider
another way to proceed.

BE VOCAL & RAISE IDEOLOGICAL CONSCIOUSNESS

And that way is consciousness raising: Raising the ideological standard
across the globe about the deeper aspects of AM ideology. Then
when all are aware about their rights and Baba’s teachings, naturally
proper corrective measures will be taken. The requisite social pressure
will be created and our organisation will be cleaned.

Everyone should write in with their suggestions. Kindly also see notes 1-4
below.

Namaskar,
Mahesh

Note 1: Here Baba reveals how misguided intellectuals take advantage of the
innocent masses.

Baba says, “The boot-licking vipras of the capitalists trick the hungry
shudras into believing that poverty is a result of their previous misdeeds,
and they will have to be prepared to wait until their next life before
receiving the inexorable decree of fate. This makes a group of people
passive fatalists and paves the way for the ruthless exploitation of the
capitalists.”

Note 2: Everyone knows that silent action is a cardinal human right given
by Baba. Baba says, “Silent action is a question of human rights.” (AV-23,
p. 150)

Note 3: In those situations that fall outside the purview or jurisdiction
of silent action we have to think and evaluate what our other options are
and how to move ahead.

Note 4: We should always remember this following Baba’s blessing:

Baba says, “He is always with you– Only move forward fearlessly with
unfaltering steps towards your Goal. May you all be blessed.” (SS pt 12, p.53)

***************************************
There should not be any confusion

Baba says, “Now why does He come in contact with the quinquelemental
factors?  Why does He come within the jurisdictions of the
temporal-spatial-personal factors, these three fundamentally-related
factors?  What’s the cause?  There are two reasons. One thing is, the human
intellect may get satisfaction after coming in psychic contact with the
Impersonal Entity, but the human heart is not satisfied with that
Impersonal Entity.  The human heart wants something closer, something more sentimental, something more pleasing.  And that’s why just to satisfy, just to give pleasure to, His progeny, He comes within the scope of these
relative factors.  Parama Purus’a becomes Ta’raka Brahma.  And the second
reason is that in this created world, in this universe, each and every
progress is a progress through clashes and cohesion.  And human beings must have sufficient intellectual stamina to move forward, fighting against all
those pebbles of obstacles.  When the human intellect fails to do something
new in helping society to move forward, Parama Purus’a finds no alternative
but to bring Himself within the scope of the temporal-spatial-personal
factors just to guide the depraved and degenerate human society.” (AV-12,
p.43-44)

Note: So Parama Purusa must follow His vow. That is He comes for
establishing dharma. Everyone knows that dharma is getting established by
His invisible grace.

When Parama Purusa remains as an impersonal Entity then the heart of the
devotee does not get satisfied. And when He comes in human form and teaches and guides the way to reach to Him, then He provides a ladder also. And with that help, devotees reach Him.

We know that ladder is the process of dhyana– which can link from form to
formlessness. That is why the culmination of dhyana is the merging into
formlessness– dissolving the mind.

Devotees always feels that Baba is residing there– in their heart.
We see in the history of devotion, that that each and every devotee in the
world felt that the Lord is with them. Indeed the entire composition of
Surdas and Mirabai is proof of that.

No doubt, jinanis and karmiis may be thinking in their own way, but
devotees feel that Baba is living in their heart.
