== Re: READ & LAUGH ==

Namaskar.

The humorous questionnaire (below) forces one to think why this tragic state of affairs is unfolding in AM. In “Namah Shivay Shantay”, Rev. BABA has clearly explained that 300 years after the death of Lord Buddha his followers divided into two and then three branches to satisfy their worldly pleasure (name, fame, prestige, post, power etc).

Baba says, “Buddhism, three hundred years after the death of Buddha, was clearly divided into two groups, (1) Mahásaḿghik, and (2) Sthavirvádii or Theravádii. Some time afterwards one more branch, [3] Sammitiiya, was created, but it did not last long.” (Namah Shivaya Shantaya, The Pervasive Influence of Shiva (Discourse 4))

Similar was the case with the of followers of various religions – what to say of Lord Krishna and Lord Shiva.

The philosophy of AM is totally unique and new, firmly based on Samgacchadhvam – the mantra of the Rk veda. Rev. Gurudev has proven Himself as the personification of His perfect philosophy.

So, in my opinion, those whose goal is to attain Baba have firm faith that He is watching them every moment and therefore His strong philosophy will tightly attach them with Him.

Whereas those whose desire is worldly pleasure – power, name and fame etc – will certainly quarrel with each other and break up the structure into various groups based on different selfish sentiments.

Since sentiments are always changing from one person to the next, the various groups will also suffer changes according to time, space, and person, and finally come to prove their hypocrisy.

Let Baba remove their ignorance of avidya maya and bring about their mental purification; then and only then will they return back to the true treasure of Ananda Marga ideology.
