Baba

“Toma’r bha’laba’sa’ bu’jhe nijeke khunje peyechi…” (P.S. 4504)

Purport:

Baba, only with Your divine love I could search for & find my true self.
Earlier I was confused about who I am and I was always feeling sad and
pessimistic about my future. But now by Your grace in my heart I feel Your
love– I feel that I am under Your shelter at Your lotus feet. Baba, now,
by Your grace, I understand where I am; my life has become meaningful.
Baba, You are the polestar of my life. By Your arrival, my whole existence
is only moving towards You. It is so blissful.
Baba when I get fatigued & tired by involving in the work, & when negative
thoughts ruin my peace and tranquility, & when the clouds of hopelessness
come– then I take shelter in Your divine love.
Baba, my mental sky, my air, my breath, my entire existence, my
everything is dancing according to Your melody. My hopes get fulfilled by
Your samvit (force of awakening). From the divine land, one unknown angel
is beckoning me. O’ my dearmost Parama Purusa, You are that very apsera’
(angel). By Your grace I have realised this truth in my meditation.
Baba, by Your grace, I am completely ensconced in Your love and now I
understand that I am completely sheltered in Your lap…

== AM’S POSITIVE AND POINTED APPROACH ==

Namaskar,
All around the globe, every margii & worker understands that everything
Baba does is out supreme welfare motive. With His immense and boundless
love for humanity, He has graciously shown us the pathway for making a
clean, well-knit society.

Even then one or two simple persons get confused from time to time by
watching Baba’s style. Because in their dizzy way they wonder why on the
one side Baba has given various teachings like ‘No Mudslinging’ or ‘Don’t
criticize’ etc, yet then in His own conduct Baba Himself strongly abuses
Wts in reporting sessions and harshly condemns the dogmatic religions etc
in His discourses. Seeing this apparent contradiction in their little
minds, a couple simple bystanders remain sunk in confusion about all this.
When actually the matter is perfectly straight like an arrow.

BABA’S POSITIVE APPROACH

Because we know Baba has deep love for all and He wants everyone to move
ahead in a positive way. His deep desire is that we should all clearly
understand what is right as well as what wrong. So we can reach our Goal.
In that way, with 100% benevolent intention, Baba has given so many
guidelines and enforced them as well. Because by this way we can all learn
from our mistakes and grow into strong sadhakas and assets of the society.

JUST LIKE FAMILY MEMBERS DO

It is similar to how real friends, parents, and guardian guide others.
Because they do not like to see their loved ones in problem–
committing the same error again and again. So with good feeling and
compassion those family members guide their near and dear ones about how to
correct and better themselves. This is the way it works when people feel
close and intimate with one another.

ANOTHER CASE IN POINT

Or the situation is similar to when anyone goes to a pathology centre. In
that case those working at that pathological medical centre will put forth
a sincere effort and try hard to identify and cure the problem. Because
their desire is to help diagnose any and all diseases. And with that pure
intention, they help their patients to regain their health, feel good
again, and function at 100% capacity.

BABA’S SUPREME BENEVOLENCE

GIVING SOLUTION IS NOT MUDSLINGING

Likewise– as all of us recognise– Baba is the perfect personification of
love and compassion. Thus when He points out the problems or defects with
any worker etc, that is done on the basis of His benevolent intention. And
side by side He supplies that person with the best solution. And by this
positive approach that person will get purified and become more and more
like the Goal– Parama Purus’a.

So Baba’s entire style is not at all like mudslinging because in
mudslinging one wants to maliciously make the next person look bad. In that
case the intention is totally negative.

While in Baba’s divine example, the situation is the exact opposite. His
motive is perfectly benevolent and He is pointing out problem– not the
worker. And in that situation by following Baba’s instruction, then
immediately that worker becomes blessed as he will eliminate the problem
from his life & everything will be beautiful. The result being that the
standard of that worker will be higher; and he will be more successful in
his mission. All because of Baba’s benevolent and pro-active approach.

RECIPE FOR MAKING PEOPLE GREAT

So side by side, pointing out the problem and giving the solution is Baba’s
special and unique method for improving one and all and helping everyone to
become great– and free from defects.

By His example and practical teaching, we can clearly understand that He
wants and expects that His disciples should proceed in the same fashion.
That is, with a warm heart we should always help others to improve by
overcoming their problems. As this is one necessary ingredient for leading
a harmonious life & achieving the Goal.

HIS GUIDELINE TO ALL ANANDA MARGIIS

That is why on numerous occasion Baba guides us to strictly watch over
everyone’s growth and development, and not allow anyone to get stuck in any
bad habits or poor behaviours. Rather Baba wants that we should help one
and all to become top-grade dharmikas.

Baba says, “Hence all A’nanda Ma’rgiis, when they see other Margiis actions
against the principles of Yama and Niyama, must make them shun this habit
either by sweet or harsh words, or by dealing even more strictly.” (GHC, p.24)

Baba says, “I gave a direction to all that they should keep watch on one
another. No one will exempt anyone else regarding the Sixteen Points.”
(AV-23 p.149)

Baba says, “Henceforth I direct every Ananda Margii to keep strict
vigilance on other Ananda Margiis to make them practise the principles of
Yama and Niyama.” (GHC, p.25)

So by following Baba’s divine instructions by pointing out the defects &
keeping an open heart for one and all, we can help one another to become
better & better– until we finally become one with Parama Purusa.

BABA’S BLESSING

Baba says, “A perfect state of balance will be established between
individuals and the collectivity, and between the collectivity and the
cosmos…That will be the stage of all-round welfare, progress, and
perfection for the entire humanity, for the entire living world.” (AFPS-8,
p.36)

Namaskar,
Mantreshvar

Note 1: PLEASE ALSO SAY

This topic has great significance in building up a brilliant Marga society
so any and all brothers and sisters should kindly come forward and also
share their thoughts and views on this important matter. This is my humble
request.

*************************************************
Good Sadhaka

Baba says, “The mind of the man whose consciousness or discriminating
judgement is awakened– whose power of judgment is intense, always remains
wedded to the ‘Buddhi’. That is to say, his rein (mind) remains constantly
under the control of the charioteer (Buddhi or discriminating intellect),
and so, quite naturally, his organs remain loyal to the Buddhi. Random
rambles of the organ-like horses (organs) will cut no ice with him. But in
a case like this if the horses (organs) be bad and untrained, i.e. the
organs are faulty, it becomes impossible for the charioteer (discriminating
intellect) to get the desired result. Hence for the right functioning of
the chariot (body), well-trained horses (organs) are indispensable. A
sadhaka (spiritual aspirant) also should train himself likewise. His mind,
body, intellect, and organs should be directed towards the Blissful Spirit
(Shreya).” (SS-4, p.9)
