Baba

“Toma’re ke cinite pa’re bolo…” (P.S. 782)

Purport:

Baba, O’ Parama Purusa, who can recognise You, who can know You – please tell me. It is not easy to recognise You. You are always moving along Your own path. You do not care about any obstacles or hindrances. You always move ahead in Your own way, O’ my Dearmost.

Baba, You always remain with everyone, individually and collectively through Your ota and prota yoga [1]. You are with everyone always; no one is ever alone. Baba, You never hate anyone. You graciously encourage and inspire one and all to do good deeds; You fill their minds with benevolent thoughts and give them strength to go on doing great work. Baba, Your divine play is unparalleled and unfathomable.

O’ Divine Entity, O’ Baba, everything is Your expression; and, in that way You are always present. In the scorching heat of the summer sun’s hot wind, and in the cold breeze of ice-covered mountains, everywhere You are. In the deep, dark, depths at the bottom of the ocean, and in the raging heat of the mirage in the desert, everywhere You are dancing. Everything is Your expression.

In the burning heat of the desert, You provide the soothing shade of the tree. O’ Parama Purusa, You pour nectar in everyone’s heart. You saturate each and every human heart with Your divine nectar. Baba, Your ways are infinite. Your liila is beyond comparison…

END NOTE FOR PRABHAT SAMGIITA #782:

[1] Ota-Prota Yoga: In Subhasita Samgraha part 17 (Gwalior DMC in 1984), Baba has given the meaning of ota yoga and prota yoga in English. Ota yoga is “individual tactuality” between Parama Purusa and the unit entity; and, prota yoga is “collective tactuality” between Parama Purusa and all the entities, simultaneously.

The above definition is exclusively describing the intimate relation between Parama Purusa and His jiivas through His ota & prota yoga. This same devotional term has been explained in a slightly different manner in the following discourse.

Baba says, “What is ota-yoga? He as the Cosmic Father has a direct relationship with each and every entity of this world…All are His affectionate children. This is His ota-yoga. Each and every entity, animate or inanimate, has a direct link with Him. Just as ota yoga means the Cosmic Father’s relationship with each entity individually, prota yoga means His relationship with all collectively.” (Ananda Vacanamrtam – 6)

Namaskar,

Baba says, “You must continue doing good to society, and at the same time must fight against the bad…On the path of dharma, one is not only to do noble deeds; one must also fight against the dishonest people both are virtuous actions. There are many good people in the society – noble people engaged in noble deeds – who are not ready to fight against wrongs and injustices. This sort of passive benevolence does not really promote the cause of human progress in the world. What is desirable is to acquire virtue by doing noble deeds and fighting against all sins and crimes. Both are mandatory, both an integral part of dharma.” (Ananda Vacanamrtam – 8, p. 50-51)

If we follow Baba’s above mandate, our organisation will be free from all kinds of negativity. Stagnant-minded people will not get the opportunity to pollute Baba’s ideology by imposing their dogma.

Namaskar,
Manomohan Sanyal
