Baba

“Bha’lo ba’siyachi, toma’re ceyechi a’ma’r maner mainjus’a’y…”   (P.S. 3185)

Purport:

Baba, You are my most close; You are my dear most. I deeply love You
with all my heart. I always yearn for You in my mental abode. Baba, I want
Your closeness.    Why are You remaining distant– & not coming close by my side.
You are not understanding the pain of my heart nor my hope to always have You.
At a distance You go on smiling sweetly with Your charming smile. Why do
You do like this. By this way You pull my heart; my heart gets taken away.

Baba, all the sweetness of this universe is filled with Your nectar. But
You are hiding Yourself within Your divine liila of darkness and
effulgence. To understand You, to realise You is very difficult. Only by
Your grace can one understand You.

Age after age, so many yogis have been ensconced in Your shravan, manan,
niddhidhyasana, japa, kiirtan, and dhyan, but without Your divine grace
nobody can realise You.

In each and every atom, proton, electron, and neutron as well as in the
stars, galaxies, and nebulae– all are singing Your glory, greatness, and
magnanimity. They are spreading the love of Your causeless grace.

Baba, I always long for You; I want Your proximity in the abode of my
mind & heart. I want to have You. Baba, You are my nearmost & dearmost…

BABA’S TEACHINGS HAVE BEEN TIMELESS

SINCE THE VERY BEGINNING

Namaskar,
Every margii knows that Baba’s discourses are eternal truth– apta vakya.

Baba says, “A’pta vakya or absolute knowledge is true and beneficial for
all people is all ages and in all countries…The books in Ananda Marga
philosophy are all absolute knowledge.” (PNS-18, chap 3)

But some jinanis in their confused state of mind think that Baba’s ideas
and discourses are not eternal– That He modifies things from one moment to
the next. Means such jinanis think in their dogmatic way that Baba’s
discourses are not apta vakya, i.e. that His discourses become old in the
due course. Or they think that sometimes Baba changed His discourses by
giving new updates etc just as  mundane, ordinary philosophers do in their
writings. These types of dogmas various jinanis have in their mind.
This following letter is the reply to such delirium that certain jinanis
have.

EVERYTHING PRE-PLANNED AND PERFECT

All are aware that Baba’s everything is pre-planned. The entire body of Ananda
Marga philosophy, irrespective of when & what time Baba delivered the speech,
is all part of His eternal guideline.

And all the ideas that Baba propagated, all those various things He started
giving from the very beginning–  in seed form.

For example, those not aware may say that Microvita philosophy was
introduced in December of 1986, but it is not like that. Because in very
beginning, in the 1950’s even, in old discourses Baba refers to the 7 types
of microvita devayonis.

And this next point is moving in the same direction.

NEO-HUMANISM PRE-DATES 1982

Since the time Ananda Marga started, since then the theory of neo-humanism
has been propagated. No doubt the name was not neo-humanism at that time,
but the whole philosophy was embedded within those early discourses. So no
one can claim that neo-humanism got started for the first time in 1982. It
is not like that.

Then there is also this example. In Patna, 1980 January, Baba has given the
discourse ‘liberation of intellect’, i.e. ‘Buddhi ki mukti’. But in
official terms, everybody is aware that the neo-humanism theory was first
given in 1982. When in fact the seed form teachings were given decades
earlier and the initial elaboration of His of neo-humanism philosophy was
given in 1980. But never was there any change to any of the ideas of
neo-humanism.

In all these above cases it is just like one baby was born and then 6
months or one year later then the baby naming ceremony happened. But that
does not mean that prior to the naming ceremony then the baby did not exist.

PRABHAT SAMGIITA GIVEN LONG BACK

Indeed countless examples can be given on this very point. It is related
with all of Baba’s philosophical teachings– the entire gamut of what He
has given. Take the case of Prabhat Samgiita. Actually since His very
childhood He started giving Prabhat Samgiita– just that time the name was
different. But then after the name Prabhat Samgiita was given decades
later, then Baba included those songs which He wrote in His childhood into
His collection of Prabhat Samgiita.

HOW COMMON THE SOCIETY OPERATES

In contrast, many people do things in a mundane, calculated manner: today
they propagate some theory and then tomorrow they see some defect in their
earlier concepts and they will attempt to revamp their initial defective
theory.

But in the case of Baba, His teachings are divine- eternal truth, Apta
vakya. So His teachings are not affected by the change in time, space, and
person.

NO UPDATES EVER NEEDED

That is why Baba never needed to update His philosophy. All the things that
He started in 1955, that very same perfect philosophy He propagated up till
1990. He just gave more and more discourses to illustrate those initial
points which were in seed form. There was no need for Baba to update
anything because all His teachings are based on eternal truth.

So those jinanis who dogmatically think that Baba updated or changed His
philosophy, they are wrong. They need to study more carefully then they
will reach the conclusion that since the very beginning, everything is the
same type of ideas. Gradually He explained more and more in His various
discourses and for that He has given new and new names and titles. But the
ideas are the same.

THE CASE WITH KIIRTAN

In opposite fashion, Islam has its own way limited dogmatic ways of
operating. Such that devotional songs and kiirtan etc are not allowed. So
if they introduce something like that, then it will be said that they
updated their philosophy.

But in our AM since the beginning, kiirtan, bhajan, dances, and devotional
chanting were approved, allowed, & encouraged. So margiis were writing and
chanting bhajans in their own way and they were singing and dancing in
their own style– haphazard way. Then in due course, Baba graciously gave
one methodical way of doing kiirtan. Likewise later on paincajanya was also
introduced. So before the introduction of paincajanya in 1982 or the
introduction of kiirtan in 1970, these things were present in seed form
since the beginning.

Here is another key point.

SHRIINATHE…

Since 1955 the point of Ista was very significant. If you see the Subhasita
Samgraha discourses, there is the story of the mythological monkey devotee
Hanuman. And  Baba illustrated this so many times and He introduced the
shloka: ‘Shriinathe…’. And this very teaching is the main guiding shloka
related with pointed devotion to Ista. And this very teaching Baba has
given in various discourses since the very beginning. And directly &
indirectly He raised this point again and again until finally in 1970
Sixteen points was made and one of the points was–strictness in Ista.

Typically, until they are confronted by a problem, human beings do not like
to think and understand about the importance of Guru’s teachings on that
particular topic. It is only when some serious negative things happen that
people realise that this thing should be taken care.

Just like Baba used to guide about the strictness of Ista point since the
beginning because many margiis who took initiation in their old age
did not like to give up their old allegiance to different gods and
goddesses. They did not take the point of strictness in Ista seriously.

On the side they were doing sadhana and ideating on Guru and other side they were
doing idol worship, taking bath in river Ganges, going to temples, doing
their marriages in their caste, and following rituals of Hindu religions.

Since the very beginning, Baba was teaching about strictness in Ista, one
pointed devotion. But many were lax in this regard.

In the past people were addressing Baba as Lord Vishnu, or Lord Rama, Lord
Krishna, Lord Shiva. The way they were ideating on different gods and
goddesses when they came in contact with Baba they saw that very form in
Baba. Because they have deep devotion in those deities and gradually that
very devotion channelised towards Baba. The main reason for this problem
was that they took initiation in their late age that time. And this same
thing happens these days when people take initiation in their late age.

What worships or rituals they do they do not like to give up. Sadhana and
other dogmatic rituals go side by side. 5 minute of idol worship of goddess
Durga and 5 minute sadhana; 5-10 Hanuman chalisa to please monkey god; and
5 minutes kiirtan. This type of pseudo-half-baked or immature margiis you
will find everywhere.

But the main problem came in 1970 was when a huge number of fake Wts became
defectors and they stated doing a lobby against Baba. Then people
understood the importance and significance of this point- strictness in
Ista. And that was the opportune time to introduce this point in 16 points
and that is what Baba did.

So it was that when a problem arose that people understood the great
necessity of Baba’s divine teaching: Strictness in Ista.

WHEN THE SITUATION CALLS, PEOPLE LEARN

The conclusion is that Baba used to teach these points since long back and
when the dire need arose then everyone understood that, ‘Yes this is
needed’. Otherwise not.

It is same thing like one may leave one’s door open every day but if one
day thief comes and takes costly things then people will be alert to close
the door. Without that, talking about alertness has no use in their mind.
Here in India you see that without one time getting pickpocketed people
cannot become alert about pickpockets.  So Baba’s whole philosophy in seed
form was there since 1955, but gradually situation came and rule was
implemented.

THE MARGA IS SAME FROM THE BEGINNING

Baba never modified his philosophy, from the beginning it was same. He
never modified or upgraded. Here is another example: male acaryas should
not initiate any females and vice versa. That was created in 1970, but this
rule was since the beginning. Because in CC part 1 Baba has given the rule
that relations between males and females should be in a very reserved way.
And as long as they will not unnecessary gossip their dealings will be
respectful.

So prior to 1970’s WTs were initiating females no problem. If strict in CC
rules (giving females motherly status) but in 1970, some degenerated WTs
started doing all kinds of nonsense things with opposite sex. And that also
with their diiksa bhaganiis. So then there was no other way than to
introduce the rule that male WTs should not initiate females. and vice versa.
The central idea is that the rule was there since the very beginning but
later on it got implemented forcefully in a deliberate manner.

THE WAY OF CHEESY JINANIS

So those who are blind and half-baked pundit they wrongly conclude that
some or other time Baba upgraded His philosophy or modified it. Jinanis
think like this due to their lack of deeper understanding. Better they
should read more, study more, do more sadhana, and then they will understand.
The beauty of spirituality is that it is based on veracity, eternal truth.
And Baba’s all teachings are apta vakya. So there is no question of
modifying them because AM ideology is eternally perfect. To understand
these things more elaboration is needed, that is a different matter. But
modification is not needed.

BABA’S BLESSING

Here in conclusion is a blessing from Baba:

Baba says, “Utilizing the vibrations created for eternal time by Shrii
Shrii Anandamurtiji through janusparsha and varabhaya mudras, take yourself
and the entire universe ahead along the path of all-round welfare. Omn
Shanti.” (CC_1)

Namaskar,
Rambabu

Note: Here below is another guideline signifying the perfect teachings of AM

Baba says: “Dharmashastra is to establish the human beings in the stable,
exalted position of spiritual ideation; it must be practical, rational,
infallible, and universal. It must be based on deep eternal truth. It must
be aptavakya. A scripture is a guiding entity. The Subhasita Samgraha
series of books are the scripture of Ananda Marga ideology.” (APH-4, ‘Our
Spiritual Treatise’)

******************************************
Purpose of Marriage

Baba says, “‘Be like Shiva and Parvati, go on doing your worldly duties
along with your psychic and spiritual pursuits, be the assets of the entire
civilisation, and by your service the whole society should be benefited.”
Note: The hidden meaning behind Baba’s blessing is that in Ananda Marga
marriage is not for carnal pleasures and sensual satisfaction. Rather is
entails a serious commitment that has a deep significance. The marriage
system in AM is for building up one human society worthy of its name.
