Subject: Baba’s Decree on Ananda Vaniis


Prabhat Samgiita Intro: Baba has given the below song as an historical account and for the devotees of Lord Krsna. As Ananda Margiis it is our duty to learn these songs and teach them to the followers of Lord Krsna. In our devotional life we sing those songs which focus on Baba.

“Ka’j kare yete esechi dhara’te, kuruks’etra ei dhara’…” (PS 1307)


O’ Lord, by Your grace, I have come in this world to do work and serve You; this world is kuruks’etra [1]. O’ my Dearmost, with Your divine compassion I have come here to engage in positive work and serve the humanity. Remaining idle and inert, and wasting time in lethargy is not the flow of life. This is not how human beings should live. O’ Prabhu, You have blessed me with the energy and motivation to involve in work – to do something for the great cause of dharma.

O’ Lord Krsna, everything You have done with Your cakra [2] and Your bow and arrow. Everyone is aware about Your epic adventures. That immortal tale and everlasting story remains flowing in everyone’s memory – in everyone’s mental plate.

O’ Prabhu, everyone is moving forward by Your divine pull; there is no scope for anyone to pause or stop. No one can lag behind; all are moving ahead. O’ Lord Krsna, that divine story of the Mahabharat led by You Yourself which took place on Kuruksetra is filled with song and has been beautifully written by the great sage, Dvaepa’yan [3].

O’ my Lord, by Your grace I have come on this earth to serve You and work for the welfare of all..


[1] Kuruks’etra: Everyone knows that the meaning of dharmaks’etra is one’s human body whereas kuruks’etra has two meanings. The first meaning of Kuruks’etra is that area of land near Delhi in the state of Haryana where
the Mahabharta battle was fought around 3500 years ago. And the second meaning of Kuruks’etra refers to the grand idea that everyone has come into this world to so some work – because this world is known as kuruks’etra.
Here following is Baba’s special explanation.

Baba says, “The real name of this world is kuruks’etra, because it is always telling you Kuru, kuru, kuru – ‘Go on working and working and working. Don’t sit idle. Don’t let your existence fall under a curse due to your indolence. Move towards success through your works.’ So the real name of that ks’etra [field] which constantly advises you in this way is kuruks’etra. KuruksĀ“etra thus stands for the manifested world around us, the sam’sa’ra, where you exist in your physical body, dharmaks’etra.” (Discourses on Krsna and the Giita)

Indeed, Baba has graciously given so many discourses on the meaning of Kuruks’etra and by listening to His Prabhat Samgiita people can refresh their mind of the real meaning of Kuruks’etra. Here the overarching idea is that all the various aspects of Baba’s expansive AM ideology are present in seed form in His collection of Prabhat Samgiita. Baba has written His Prabhat Samgiita very indirectly and those with a pointed mind understand how each song links with in-depth explanations which He has given in His Ananda Marga philosophical discourses.

[2] Cakra: This term has a variety of meanings and in this song Baba is referring to one of the weapons of Lord Krsna. Because during the Mahabharat battle, there were times when Lord Krsna unveiled His divine cakra.

Here below Baba Himself describes the historic scene in the Mahabharat where the people thought Lord Krsna covered the sun with His cakra so that Arjuna could fufill his great vow of slaying the immoral Jayadrath.

Baba says, “You know what happened at the time of Jayadratha’s death. Arjuna, as per his vow, was supposed to go to the funeral pyre immediately after sunset in order to keep his promise. Suddenly people observed that the sun was no longer in the sky and that it had become dark all around. Everyone thought that the sun had already set. Those who were devotees, not philosophers, commented that Lord Krs’n’a had covered the sun with His
Sudarshana Cakra…and people thought that the sun had gone down. Soon Arjuna was able to keep his promise and kill Jayadratha. ” (Namami Krsnasundaram, Disc: 24)

[3] Dvaepa’yan: This is another name for the great poet Vedavyasa Deva who recorded the Mahabharat in written form.

Baba says, “Krs’n’advaepa’yan’a Vya’sa is renowned as Vedavya’sa for having divided the Vedas into three main portions (Rk, Yajuh, and Atharva)…He was born in a fisherman’s family (Kaevarta [a fishing caste]) on a blackish
island that rose out of the waters of the confluence of the Ganges and the Yamuna at Prayag, and for this reason the people gave him the name Krs’n’advaepa’yan’a. This Krs’n’advaepa’yan’a or Vedavya’sa was the composer of the Mahabharata. The Mahabharata was composed long, long, long after the Vedas, but nonetheless it is undoubtedly more than three thousand years old.” (Shabda Cayanika-2, Disc: 11)

Final Note: Baba composed the above Prabhat Samgiita #1307 on 29 Feb 1984 when He Himself was touring through Kuruks’etra, thus giving credence to the idea that indeed the historical account of the Mahabharat is itiha’sa.


Here is one of Baba’s special guidelines about His Ananda Vaniis and devotional life.

Baba says, “I have already told you in many of My Ananda Vanii messages that Parama Purus’a is with you.”

“No one today is alone; even the small countries of the world cannot live separately. We will all have to move together in unison – this will be the model for the future.”

“You will surely be victorious because you possess that inherent dynamism. I say this with great joy, and I anticipate with greater joy that your dynamism will increase more and more.” (Kalikata, 12th November, 1978)

In a loving way Baba assures that He is always with us and reminds us that this divine truth He has stated in His original Ananda Vaniis.

He furthermore guides us that we shall all move together and that victory is ours.


We all know that Baba’s original Ananda Vaniis are unique discourses unto themselves that are not part of any other discourse. Rather Baba would handwrite His Ananda Vaniis and present them twice annually at New Year’s DMC & Ananda Purnima, respectively.

These original Ananda Vaniis are timeless teachings that held great relevance when they were issued and for all time to come as well. So it is His original 74 Ananda Vaniis that we are to use at our annual New Year’s DMS and Ananda Purnima functions.

No one should get confused by the Fake Ananda Vaniis imposed by the various groups
