Baba

Introduction to PS #2327: In the following song Baba is lovingly guiding
one disciple who is confused and totally immersed in materialism.

“Cora’ba’lir pa’r’e keno gar’e ya’o ghar…” – P.S. 2327

Purport:

Why are you building castles in quicksand. Have you never examined the
matter carefully. That structure is shaking profusely because of the
soft foundation. Since ages you have been wasting your time in
constructing that castle on quicksand. You have invested huge energy
along with blood, sweat & your own hard labour to build it. All the
while you were indulging in your own dreamland– foolishly thinking that
this “thing” will give you permanent satiation. You were never ready to
admit that this is temporary and ephemeral…

Note: In the above song quicksand means materialism and castle means
building one’s life.

== GRADUALLY ALL COUNTRIES WILL BE IN JAIL ==

Namaskar,
Security checkpoints, I.D. requests, curfews in cities, bodyguards,
metal detectors in schools, police barricades…

Terrorist attacks, pirate ships, car bombs, explosions in the market,
hotels under siege, open gunfire at crowds…

Luxury mansions, corporate profits, exploitation of resources, 1st World
vs 3rd World, starving villagers, disease-plagued communities, 1
dollar-a-day sweat-house factories…

So long as this grossly materialistic vaeshyan era is in vogue, the more
our global family will be held in check, until finally literally
everyone will be living in jail, not even able to go out to buy food or
get a drink of water without being frisked, questioned, ID checked, and
watched.


MATERIALISM BRINGS FEAR

There are finite, limited resources on this earth. And capitalists are
gobbling them all up. Whether it be oil, bananas, land, diamonds, coal,
timber, or whatever, capitalist enterprises are fast identifying and
swallowing up every perceivable resource– whether that resource exists
in their own backyard or not.

We are fast reaching that point where 99% of the world’s resources are
owned by 0.1% of the world’s people. With each and every passing day, we
move closer and closer to strangling the common citizens for the last
bit of wealth on this planet.

This is what is happening in this abhorrently materialistic era where
humanity’s infinite longing is sidetracked into the pitfalls of limited
worldly wealth.

Baba says, “Human beings have unquenchable, infinite physical longings
and out of these physical longings capitalism came into existence.”
(‘Talks on Prout’)

Baba says, “Capitalism must be forced to abandon its ferocious hunger by
taking strong measures.” (POD #2)

So when a few are gobbling up all the resources and wealth to satisfy
their misguided longing for material gain…

…In that case, there is bound to be a backlash. There is bound to be a
reaction. That is why those top capitalists are ever more fearful about
such a retaliation and increase security in every conceivable corner of
social life.

The United States employs hundreds of thousands in their intelligence
operations. Because they know well that when the US has taken all the
world’s resources then other people are not going to be happy about it
and will retaliate, sooner or later. We have now reached that point in
human history.

CAMPING TRIP EXAMPLE

Today’s global climate can be likened to one camping trip where a small
group of people embark on an outing to a small place where there are
limited resources. Then if one or two persons were to quickly hoard all
the resources on that island or hilltop, and the rest of the people had
little or no means to live, then naturally those common campers would
strike back at those who had snatched up all the resources. This is
human nature. Even people who would not normally fight or seek revenge
will rise up if a few are stealing all the wealth and forcing the rest
to live as paupers.

TERRORISTS ARE NOT THE ROOT CAUSE

So while terrorism cannot be espoused in any way, shape, or form, it
would also be foolish to deny the fact that today’s global terrorism was
born more out of capitalist exploitation than by Muslim extremism.

No doubt the Muslim religion is dogmatic and misguided in its ways, but
the current terrorist attacks did not suddenly appear out of thin air.
They are a response to a certain set of conditions: Capitalists stealing
all the world’s wealth and then legalising that process.

Thus whether they be pirates from Somalia, car bombers from Pakistan, or
hijackers from Egypt, all such terrorist attacks are a secondary
problem. The main cause is extreme capitalism where all the wealth has
been sucked up by a few. And then to retain that wealth, millions and
billions are spent on security, surveillance, and the like.

In which case, everyday citizens are forced to both (a) live in the
danger of a terrorist attack at any moment, as well as (b) be looked
upon as suspects by those greedy, fearful capitalists.

Before the rise of extreme capitalism, political leaders would casually
roam the streets without any fear or problem. But now even low-grade
politicians move around with a small army of security guards. The ripple
effect of that fear is that everyday citizens must show their ID card at
every street corner – or nearabouts.


YOUTH FEEL THEY HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE

When certain countries have snagged all the wealth– and it is visible
for all to see on the internet– then innocent youth in far distant
lands take a vow. They think, ‘Why should I live surrounded by flies in
these slums when those people from afar have stolen our resources and
exploited our people for labor’. When such youths realise that despite
their best efforts they will never be able to become part of the
well-to-do, they reason that they have nothing to lose.

In that way, they join street gangs, or get involved in guerrilla
warfare, or sign-up in a terrorist training camp. They think this is the
only way for me to get ahead, otherwise those capitalists will just suck
me dry, just like they did to the rest of the people in my community or
country.

With this ‘nothing-to-lose’ attitude, youths take to the streets, and
today we are seeing the results.

BABA’S BLESSING

So long as capitalism is the leading system, then people’s minds will be
diverted to material gain and exploitation will be the theme of the day.
A few will have everything and the rest will have next to nothing. That
is the capitalist dream. To date, they have gotten success. And their
success has given birth to terrorism and this age where our airports and
streets are turning into maximum security prisons. This problem will
only increase with the continued rise of capitalism. By Baba’s grace we
must usher in that era of spirituality and Prout and rid the world of
the noose of capitalism.

Baba says, “These capitalists are the unworthy sons and daughters of the
Cosmic Father because they go against the principle of cosmic
inheritance. They should be cured of their ailments. To fight capitalism
is therefore within your goal.” (‘Talks on Prout’)

Baba says, “We have to divert physical longings to psychic and spiritual longings to
avoid a fratricidal war, and thereby safeguard human rights.” (PNS-15)

Namaskar,
Pradiip

Uniqueness of Ta’raka Brahma

Baba says, “A Maha’kaola is one who makes others kaola by his infallible
spiritual guidance. But Ta’raka Brahma is a different Entity, a unique
Entity for He is the spiritual preceptor, social preceptor, Kaola, and
Maha’kaola, all in one. He is also something more: He acts as a compass
in every stratum of society.” (NKS, ’97 Edn, p.50)
