Baba

 

== I DO NOT BELONG TO ANY GROUP ==

 

~ Part 4 ~

 

Namaskar,

Everyone knows that in AM we are to follow Baba. His way is our way–

not any groupist, double-groupist, or triple-groupist approach.

 

Unfortunately, one new syndrome has sprouted in AM where some are

claiming, ‘I do not belong to any group’, but in truth they are

double-groupists or even multi-groupists.

 

How?

 

A person says, ‘I do not belong to any group’, yet during AM programs

they read out Fake Ananda Vaniis from all the groups. Thus they are

double groupists because they are following the dogma of two different

groups.

 

Here is another example.

 

A person says, ‘I do not belong to any group’, yet they attend both the

dogmatic Mahaprayan program as well as the dogmatic Jamalpur tiirtha

program. Hence once again they are double groupists because they are

following the dogma of two different groups.

 

Of course, we should not follow the dogma of any group, but now what is

happening is that in the name of not being part of any group, some are

following the dogmas of all the groups.

 

In this latest schema then, a person can be a double, triple, or even

multi-groupist. That is the unfortunate way things are unfolding at

present in our Marga.

 

 

FALLING INTO TRAP OF INDIAN RELIGIOUS DOGMA

 

The same tragedy befell dogmatic religious worshipers in India. As more

and more deities came into being, simple worshipers began honoring all

the gods. In the beginning people were following Lord Shiva, just like

Ananda Margiis were meditating on Baba. But then as time went on, more

and more deities came into being and those worshipers of Lord Shiva

began incorporating all those dogmatic deities into their prayer system,

until there became an entire plethora of gods and goddesses: So many

idols, so many pujas, so many deities etc. This type of dogmatic

pluralism is the chief downfall of religion in India. And Baba strongly

condemns this faulty approach in His discourse, ‘Omnkarnath & Ista Mantra’.

 

In a strikingly similar pattern, in the beginning Ananda Margiis were

only following Baba. There was no question of doing anything else. But

after 1990 groupism started and ever since more and more groups and

sub-groups are sprouting up– just like mushrooms in a cow field. In

that event, some naive and some opportunistic people have begun

following the dogmatic ways of multiple groups. They attend a groupist

seminar here, participate in someone else’s Mahaprayan program, read

another group’s Fake Ananda Vanii, go to yet another rally, support one

group’s puppet BP candidate, and so many things they are doing. They are

following all the groupist dogmas– they are double or even

triple-groupists– yet all the while proclaiming, ‘I do not follow any

group’.

 

 

MUST BE STOPPED IN AM

 

This tragic phenomenon of double groupism and multi-groupism must be

completely eliminated from our Marga. Single groupism must also be

stopped. But this double and triple groupism is even worse as it

reinforces all the dogmas: Scriptural distortions, Fake Ananda Vaniis,

MPD, tiirthas, wrong seminar system, and so much other nonsense.

 

So when anyone says, ‘I do not belong to any group’, then we must watch

them carefully and see if in actuality they are really a double or

triple groupist. Unfortunately, this is the way things have been taking

shape lately.

 

 

BABA’S BLESSING

 

By Baba’s grace, all groupism– single, double, triple, and multi– will

vanish from our Marga in the wake of following one pristine,

neo-humanistic ideology.

 

Baba says, “Universalism does not depend upon any relative factor, hence

it is free from the vices of ism. Ism thrives on the angle of group

interest…Those who are eager to establish peace should

shake off [groupism] and other allied isms.” (PNS-4)

 

Namaskar,

Ramakrishna

 

 

Note 1: JUST THEIR SELFISH FIGHT

 

Right now, huge group clash is going on, but their fight is purely personal, i.e.

according to their selfish agendas. To undertake a truly dharmic stand, certain

ideological integrity must be maintained. The below letter reviews critical

ideological issues that must be addressed.

PRABHAT SAMGIITA

 

“Pathe pathe ghuri toma’rei smari, dekhite na’ pa’i keno bolo…” (PS 2904)

 

Purport:

 

Baba, I am wandering around on the path thinking about You. In my

journey of life I am moving ahead, ensconced in Your divine ideation. By

Your grace my life is passing in this way. Baba, even then I am not

getting You. I am putting forth effort in my sadhana but I am not

getting Your close proximity nor Your sweet, divine touch. Baba, I am

not feeling Your intimate closeness in the way I desire; please tell me

why that is. Baba, Your karuna’* is my sadhana. When You shower Your

grace compassion then my sadhana is blissful– otherwise my sadhana is

dry. So I am just depending on You completely. When You shower Your

karuna’ then that is my sadhana. Baba, why are You playing this type of

liila with me– why are You not always coming in close to me in my

meditation. Why do You remain so elusive.

 

Baba, You are the Goal of everyone’s dhyana. You are the Ista. Baba,

You are the dearest One; You are the terminus. In everyone’s mind and

heart, You are the most venerable one: You are varaniiyo. Baba, until

one gets You, they cannot be satisfied. You are the eternal and infinite

Source. Only You can satiate everyone’s heart. That is why everyone

loves You and yearns for You. Baba, please bring complete satiation to

everyone’s mind; please light the lamp of devotion. Sometimes my sadhana

goes up; sometimes it goes down. Baba, please light the lamp of devotion

in my heart so that it remains eternally effulgent.

 

Baba, although I want You to come close and sit and talk with me so I can see You,

although this is my desire but You do not come close. You are not coming

according to my desire. Baba, in that case, go on playing Your divine

liila; there is no harm. Because by Your grace whenever I call You– I

easily get You in the deep core of my heart. By Your grace I see that

You are sitting there smiling. For that very reason, I have surrendered

all my love unto You. It is Your grace. Baba, I want You– You are my

dearmost. Please make me ensconced in the depths of Your ideation,

eternally forever and ever.

 

Baba, with Your ahetuki krpa, please shower me with Your parabhakti…

Eternal Source of Energy

 

Baba says, “Because each and everybody in this universe gets energy

from Parama Purusa, He is the Supreme Source of energy.”

“This earth and all the other planets and satellites of this solar

system get their energy from the sun. The sun is the source of their

energy. But He is the source of the sun’s energy. And that’s why He is

jvalantam.”

“And that’s why I have said that there won’t be any thermal death of

this universe. Because He is jvalantam, He is present, and He will be

present forever. So there won’t be any shortage of energy in this cosmic

system, though there may be a shortage of energy in some particular

portion of the earth or the cosmos.” (AV-3, p. 26-27)
