Baba

== PEACE OF SOCIETY LINKED WITH LIVELIHOOD ==

Namaskar,

Baba says, “For the all-round welfare and development of human beings, society needs to follow some fundamental socio-political principles. Without the firm foundation of such principles, disunity, injustice and exploitation will flourish.”

“First people should not be retrenched from their livelihood unless alternative employment has been arranged for them.”

“Let us discuss what happens when people lose their livelihood. Take the example of rickshaw pullers in India. The work of rickshaw pullers is exhausting and poorly paid, but if it is declared illegal, many rickshaw pullers will become unemployed and their lives will become more miserable. Those who cannot find alternative employment will either die of starvation or become criminals in an effort to survive. In either case, society will be adversely affected. So, before this occupation is prohibited, rickshaw pullers should be provided with suitable alternative employment.”

“Now you understand the consequences of retrenching people without arranging a suitable alternative livelihood for them.” (Prout Nutshell-16, p.68-69)

1. In failing to follow this important point, currently, countries like India are facing a whirlpool of criminal activity.

2. Altogether in this chapter Baba puts forth three cardinal principles for “individual and collective progress”. Reference PNS-16 chapter 10 for a full listing & description.

3. For those who do not have the book, the three cardinal principles are:
(a) No retrenchment from job unless new employed arranged.
(b) No forced religious conversion.
(c) Not suppression of mother tongue.

Baba says, “Without the firm foundation of such principles, disunity, injustice and exploitation will flourish. To avoid this and to safeguard the interests of all people, the leaders of society must ensure that cardinal socio-political principles are strictly followed. Otherwise, individual and collective progress can never be achieved.” (Prout Nutshell-16, p.68)

Namaskar,
Gautama Deva

PRABHATA SAMGIITA

“Tumi na’ bole esechile, a’j na’ bole cale gele…” (Prabhata Samgiita #1327)

Purport:

Baba, without saying anything You came and appeared in my dhya’na, and now today without telling You just left– disappeared. Baba, I was lying in the dust on the path, and You graciously lifted me up and put me on Your lap. You have done everything.

O’ Parama Purus’a, O’ Baba, my dwelling was old and tattered – broken down. Not only that, I was also without intellect and conscience. My condition was so pitiful that I did not have even one morsel to put into my mouth. With Your love and kindness, You bestowed everything upon me and taught me all that I needed to know.

Baba, I was not understanding the dharma of human life – what human beings should do, and what are the do’s and don’ts. About all these things I was not at all aware. To get You, I did not do any sadhana. Even then by Your grace You have taught me sadhana and blessed me with perfection to move ahead on the path.

O’ Divine Entity, O’ Baba, previously in my life I was not even up to the standard of a human being. All the teachings I had been given were full of dogma. Baba, You have graciously poured the sweetness, given me a voice, and lifted me onto Your Divine lap. Baba, You have done everything.

O’ my Dearmost, secretly You came and secretly You left – even then You have arranged everything for me. Baba, Your grace is unforgettable…
