Subject: The Dream is Over



Since World War II if not earlier, the American Dream was 100% alive – all Americans believed in it, as did most of the rest of the world. Even up until ten years ago, a large majority of the US population believed in capitalism and the American Dream.

Now that dream is gone. Today large segments of the population are fed-up with capitalism. They think their situation is bleak with little or no hope for the future. They are looking for something different – they are looking for a new way.


A shift in consciousness is taking place. One such manifestation of this is the “Occupy Wall St” protests. While they may not possess the answers, the youths involved are quite disenchanted with capitalism. Such youths need direction.

Indeed with the loss of faith in capitalism, a vacuum has been created. Many will try and fill that space with their own ideas and agendas, including the socialists etc. This way the suffering of society will continue. Because these other theories are but a utopia; they will only invite for trouble and torment for the people.

Now is the very moment we must further advance our propagation of Prout. The intensive efforts margiis and acaryas have put forth in the past will yield tremendous results in this current environment. The youths are looking for a glimmer of hope – a practical way to proceed. And Prout is that philosophy and socio-economic system.



Many may recall how in certain reporting sessions and Prout meetings, Baba told that: Our duty is to propagate Prout, if people merely recognise the name Prout – then the work is done. That is enough. It needs name recognition, nothing more. Then the needful will be done.

So none should feel that we must have manifestos and edicts and strategic plans etc. If we merely tell people that there is a socio-economic philosophy called Prout, then naturally they will research further. As we know all Baba’s teachings are perfectly psychological and suited to the human mind. Prout will appeal to people and they will rally around it.

In this phase, our aim is to make Prout a “household name”.



Here following is an interesting, expressive report that shows how youths are fed-up capitalism.

On Point Radio Show: “Occupy Wall Street”: While the entire show is quite interesting, if your time is limited simple scroll to the 6min 10sec mark and listen to what the young sister named Bre has to say.

And indeed there are many such reports. And only reports, the unemployment rate is very high for young people and the youths are also burdened by debt. There is a growing outcry against the capitalist system. To give voice to this the Occupy Wall St movement started and now it has spread to 150+ cities across the US and has generated interest across the entire globe.


Now is the time to heighten our efforts to spread the name and teachings of Prout. When people hear about it, interest will grow quickly.

Already for decades so many dedicated and sincere margiis and Wts have worked tirelessly spreading the teachings of Prout. And as we all know, new ideas are best taught in a fertile environment. Now in capitalistic nations, and in particular the US, the ground has indeed become fertile. The youths are looking for something other than corporate capitalism.

This is the time to fill the vacuum with Prout – before there was no vacuum in the US – people were pleased with capitalism – now that has changed. A vacuum has been created and now is the time for Prout.

Baba says, “This vacuum has to be immediately filled with a strong guiding and controlling force. You should fill it with your intellectuo-intuitional strength. If you sit idle some other demonic non-spiritual theories can become active and occupy that vacuum, so do not encourage lethargy and procrastination. You must leave the six defects of sleep, drowsiness, fear, anger, lethargy and procrastination if you want to work for the Self and for the society.”

“PROUT is the only panacea. If the God-centred philosophy of PROUT does not come forward immediately to fill this vacuum, some other ideology will, because it is a law of nature that something will fill a vacuum once it has been created. If this ideological vacuum is not filled by PROUT, a great catastrophe will take place in the future because other defective philosophies will come forward. Some dogma-centred, matter-centred or self-centred theories will occupy the space. We cannot allow this to happen…The ideas of PROUT are spreading throughout the world. This new day is yours.” (Prout in a Nutshell-18, The Excellence of God-Centred Philosophy)



Baba says, “Human beings, universal humans, have had to undergo tremendous struggle due to suppression, repression and oppression and the catastrophes created by capitalism and communism. Wherever there is suppression, repression and oppression human beings are forced to follow the path of dogma. Communism preaches dogma, capitalism preaches dogma, and so-called religions based on the scriptures also preach dogma. Now is the time for the emergence for the third psychic force where there will be no more suppression, repression and oppression. Let the mind develop according to its longings; let the mind be free. Let there be a human society of coordination and cooperation. This is the last stage. We are waiting for the rising sun with crimson rays. Even now the crimson rays are a bit visible. These crimson rays are the rays of PROUT.” (Prout in a Nutshell-17, Suppression, Repression and Oppression)
