“Sakal duya’r khule dile prabhu, Va’ta’yan-pathe a’lo elo…” (P.S. 2429)


Baba, by Your grace You have come and opened all the doors and windows,
and a huge effulgence has started pouring in. From the eastern horizon
the crimson dawn is visible. The darkness is fast fading away.

Baba, in the past there was a domination of dogma and groupism all
around. Countless superstitions and negative samskaras were doing their
naked dance. But now, with the presence of Your divine effulgence, in
the blink of an eye those dogmas and negative things have disappeared.
And the  beings of darkness have dissolved into thin air. I do not know
where  they have gone– just they disappeared.

Baba, with Your love and punishment You are keeping everyone in Your
shelter. O’ Baba, You are caring for everyone…


We all know Baba places great emphasis on our sadhana practice as it is
only by properly doing sadhana that we can grow from crude animality to
human, and from human to ideal human being, and from ideal human to divine.

Just as an illiterate person can become a doctor, professor, or
a lawyer through proper schooling and education.


Sadhana wholly transforms one’s mind, body, and consciousness. The whole
personality gets changed by proper sadhana. That is why our Guru has
given a huge importance to doing sadhana.

Unfortunately many of us haven’t been able to realise this basic fact in
our practical life. As long as we have not realised the depth of
sadhana, we should go on doing our meditation with utmost sincerity. Let
us not forget that sadhana is a scientific process and by right effort a
result must come.

And not only must we practice sadhana, but we must tell those who are
obsessed with materialism as well. They must understand that materialism
is not everything. This truth must be understood by all.

For all these reasons, sadhana is very important and here is Baba’s
Procedural Order on sadhana.


“(A) 4 Times Sadhana: Doing sadhana 4 times daily is compulsory for all
wholetime workers. It will be the duty of all wt workers to maintain the
record of their 4 time sadhana routine in their compulsory daily diary.
All trade heads are also hereby instructed to see very particularly the
sadhana routine of each and every individual worker of their concerning
trade. Trade heads must check whether their workers do sadhana 4 times a
day or not. DPS will be directly responsible for implementing this
system very strictly. DPS is also to create his own method for
collecting information every month regarding workers of different trades
who do not or did not perform sadhana as per system in a particular
month. Such names are to be recorded and immediate steps to be taken by
the DPS against the concerning workers and the supervisory worker of
that trade. A monthly statement regarding the irregularities in 4 times
sadhana by the workers of different trades and disciplinary steps taken
by the DPS against the worker must be submitted to the higher authority
every month.”

“General Margiis: Doing sadhana 2 times daily is compulsory for all
margiis in general. DPS is to keep candour eye through his RDPS and DDPS
on each and every margii regarding their performance of individual
sadhana 2 times a day. Any slackness in this respect is to be pointed
out by the concerning RDPS and DDPS to the margiis concerned and the
margii is to be made to understand that by not doing sadhana he is
committing sin and that he must be very very strict in 2 times sadhana.
RPDS and DDPS are to keep a regular record of the margiis of their
respective areas regarding two times sadhana. DPS must keep a regular
watch on the records.”

“B) Asana and Ekadashii: In order to help in regularity and improvement
in sadhana, every worker will have to follow very strictly the rules of
asanas (daily compulsory) and ekadashii and they will maintain this
record in their daily diary. The DPS will keep very close watch on this
and necessary steps must be immediately taken.”

“C) In order to improve the sadhana of the WT workers and increase their
attachment to it, the 7th lesson (Sahaj Pranayama) may be made available
for practice to maximum wt workers. This will immediately increase their
inclination towards sadhana.”

(Procedural Order on Sadhana as given by Baba)

Most senior Wts have this above Procedural Order but they do not like
share with their junior wts and margiis, otherwise those seniors
themselves will be pointed out for not following this order.


By Baba’s grace He has blessed us with this great sadhana practice of
Ananda Marga and we should realise this quest in our daily life.

Baba says, “The worship of Brahma should be done scrupulously, or else
you will later regret and bemoan the futility of your life with the last
drop of your tears at your last hour. You should make your life
worthwhile through your sa’dhana’. How much can your worldly friends and
relations do for you? After your death your relatives may perhaps ask,
“How much money has he left behind?” Your friends may go to the
crematorium and indulge in flattering reminiscences about you. Your
husband or wife may cry for you for about ten or twelve days and then
regain their normal composure. Your lot will be only a profound sigh – a
record of the futility and frustration of your life. So do not waste
your time lest you later have to repent…That is why I say that you
will have to dedicate yourselves to His feet wholly and unreservedly.
You will earn godliness in proportion to the extent that you surrender
yourselves, and finally, after merging that acquired godliness of yours
in His Entity, you will attain eternal bliss.” (SS-3)
