“Mor din cale ja’y a’sha-nira’sha’ toma’r tarei priyo…” (PS 3507)


Baba, my days and nights are passing in the hope and hopelessness of longing for You, O’ my dearmost. Baba, when I see that You are not coming
then my life is sunk in hopelessness. But when I think about Your divine grace then with deep hope I think that I will get you. Baba, in this way all my time passes. O’ my most supremely benevolent majestic One, when I think about You sometimes I cry in the agony of not getting You and sometimes I smile with my empty hopes – dreaming of Your blissful arrival.

Baba, I always keep my eyes fixed toward the blue sky of my mind. There I look for You in Your divine abode. Baba, I am calling You with tears in my eyes; please give a little response to my call.

Baba, the black fog permeates each and every pore of my mind. By coming in a most sweet, charming, and attractive way, please grace me by wiping
away all the cimmerian darkness from my mental temple. O’ my dearmost Baba, by Your divine grace make me pure and blemishless.

Baba, my life is passing in Your divine attraction. Please shower Your causeless grace on me and make me Yours…



Baba says, “Hence human beings must name Parama Puruśa. If somebody says, “Don’t name Parama Puruśa, simply do dhyána [meditation],” you will discover something while meditating, also – that one has to address Parama Puruśa by name, otherwise one is not satisfied. When you meditate you have a wish to address the meditated, to say something to that party. That is, again the name comes up. Though the name is something limited, the human mind cannot help using it. Ultimately the name and the namer will no longer remain, only the named will remain. But as long as the namer and name do remain, the name has to be used – simply because one can’t help it.” (Subhasita Samgraha – 11, Na’ma & Na’mii)

Every lesson of Ananda Marga sadhana has a particular mantra. However, a few people do not think that the dhyana lesson has a mantra.

But in that lesson there is a system to address Parama Purusa. And this is a natural yearning as well; in that state, the mind feels the need to address Him. In the above citation, Baba says this very fact. So one is to call Him in a way that feels comfortable. Without that, one will not be able to go close to Him.

When the mind is in a proper flow, then one likes to call Him. And by this way, one feels more and more closeness and proximity, and the heart will be satisfied.

As the mind becomes more and more concentrated, then only the Entity you are calling will remain as the unit existence merges in Him. That is, slowly, slowly the mind will be fixed on the Divine Entity and become one with that.

So it all starts with the sentimental feeling to call Him. Then gradually the mind gains more momentum and merges in the Goal, i.e. Parama Purusa. That is nirvikalpa samadhi and that is ultimate goal of dhyana.
