BABA

“Shra’van’ii pu’rn’ima’r katha’ a’j mane par’e…” (P.S. 4954)

Purport:

Baba, today the divine story of Shra’van’ii Pu’rn’ima’ is coming in my mind, in my heart. O’ Bandhu, the memory of Shra’van’ii Pu’rn’ima’ is floating in my mind. The glorious advent of that historical day is still fresh in my mind when the divine play between the staticity and divinity started happening [1]. That time the sweet, fragrant air was saturated with the aroma of the night jasmine; it was permeating the entire atmosphere. This yuthika’ flower was full of sweetness & love. A sweet, mild breeze was blowing and various creatures including frogs were singing the chorus with great joy. the grace of Supreme Consciousness acted upon the crude mind with the divine force of ista mantra shakti. On that very day of Shravanii Purnima, new spiritual vibrations were created on this earth as the radiant effulgence pierced through the fog & the darkness. The memory of that Shra’van’ii Pu’rn’ima’ is still fresh in my mind, by Your grace…

END NOTES FOR PRABHAT SAMGIITA #4954:

[1] Here Baba is poetically narrating how when Kalicharanji was blessed by receiving initiation then he started repeating his Ista mantra & with the incantative power of the mantra his sleeping divinity was aroused.

== THE BIRTH OF A’NANDA MA’RGA ==

Namaskar,
Shra’van’ii Puurn’ima is coming soon: Thursday (Aug 2). This letter shares some of the highlights of this special occasion and festival of Ananda Marga.

In AM, everyone is aware that Baba started giving initiations in 1939: That began one auspicious and glorious era. So this coming festival dates is a special occasion because on that very day the Lord Himself initiated the first sadhaka unto the path of Ananda Marga. Baba Himself proclaims that Shra’van’ii Pu’rn’ima’ night was the first occasion upon which He initiated anyone on the path according to the Ananda Marga sadhana system.

ANANDA MARGA IS THE PATH OF BLISS

Our Ananda Marga is the Path of Bliss. A’nanda means bliss and Ma’rga means path; hence, “path of bliss.” And if one follows this path – His teachings of Ananda Marga – then one becomes ensconced in bliss: By reaching up to Parama Purusa and being bathed in His divine nectar, by His grace.

2-4 “A’nandam’ Brahma itya’huh”
Meaning: This a’nanda is called Brahma

So our Marga is the path to Brahma. And Shravanii Purnima is the day when Baba graciously first revealed this path to humanity. So this is one highly memorable occasion as it marks the birth of Ananda Marga as we know it. It was on Shravanii Purnima that those devotees began performing AM sadhana, and thereafter began holding dharmacakra and following so many
spiritual teachings, by Baba’s grace. Later on the organisation was formed in 1955; but, by then already Baba had beautifully created so many followers of Ananda Marga. That is why Shravanii Purnima in 1939 is the real birth of Ananda Marga – the path of bliss.

THE DEEP SIGNIFICANCE OF SHRA’VAN’II PU’RN’IMA’

Since that very day of Shra’van’ii Pu’rn’ima’, the cosmic play started between the divine forces and crude forces. And ultimately the collective kundalinii got awakened and started rising up, by His grace. This entire scene Baba describes in the above Prabhat Samgiita.

The overall idea is that Baba has infused this whole world with His special vibration. And in that way there will be victory over the crudeness & staticity. That is what happened through that historic initiation of Kalicharanji in 1939.

In AM history this day of Shra’van’ii Pu’rn’ima’ has deep importance, not just physical history but psychic and spiritual history too. It has a special significance because that day Parama Purusa infused His spiritual power and energy which is working and will work in future also. So this Shra’van’ii Pu’rn’ima’ has great value.

In true sense human beings come on this earth to reach and achieve this goal – Parama Purus’a. And Parama Purusa Himself comes in the form of Ta’raka Brahma to help and execute this task. That is what was auspiciously started by our Sadguru Shrii Shrii Anandamurtiji in 1939 when He graciously performed His first initiation.

THE DIVINE APPEARANCE OF TARAKA BRAHMA

As every Ananda Margii has realised, His divine advent (Ananda Purnima) itself is very meaningful; and, so is the special day of Shravanii Purnima when He blessed humanity by initiating aspirants onto the divine path of AM tantra sadhana. Both days are historic events. Because Ta’raka Brahma comes on this earth to liberate one and all from all sorts of bondages: physical, psychic and spiritual.

Baba says, “No one need harbour any doubt that Parama Purus’a exists to promote the well-being of all created beings. If He was not concerned about the welfare of the living unit beings, He would have remained in His unqualified stance forever and would not have manifested Himself as Ta’raka Brahma or Sagun’a Brahma. But He did manifest Himself in this way and has
just showed His intention of promoting the well-being of humanity. That is why He has given the assurance:”

“Paritra’n’ya…”

“Now what is the necessity for His repeated advent into this world? To ensure human welfare; about that there is no doubt. Human welfare primarily means welfare in the spiritual stratum…” (Prout in a Nutshell-11 pg 59-60)

SHARANAGATI = UNDER HIS DIVINE SHELTER

So we are fortunate and especially graced that Baba has taken us in His loving shelter. When He has graciousluy accepted us as His disciples, it means we are in His divine care.

Those who do not have that deeper connection with Baba, with their superficial understanding they may think that ‘Baba has left us, He has gone, He did not fulfill…’. But those who are devotees have the real understanding. They know that Baba is with us, and that HE is always remaining along with us. And we can have His communication, & we can get His blessing in Guru cakra through the medium of the dhya’na sadhana that He has taught us.

BABA’S BLESSING

Baba says, “The one formless, beginningless and infinite Parama Brahma (Supreme Consciousness) is the only entity to be attained by living beings – That alone is Jagat Guru (the Supreme preceptor), That alone has revealed Brahmavidya (intuitional science) to us through the medium of the name and form of Shrii Shrii Anandamurtijii. Unit beings must be made to appreciate
Its majesty.” (Caryacarya II p.1)

Namaskar,
Chandra Shekhar

== RE: GOENKA’S OIL WAS STOLEN ==

~ Part 3 ~

(This is the third posting in this series; a link to the second posting is appended below while the initial letter on this topic appears in full in this email. – Eds)

Namaskar,

This below letter is true. The oil cans were lifted to Sambalpur from Jharsuguda railway station. Nitimaya gave one oil can to Rudradevananda and the other can was given to her brother-in-law. She is justifying her action with several logic. She is a frequent visitor of Rudradevananda and stays with him. Where she is now? She is now in Ambika Nagar ( Sambalpur ) in the house of her brother-in-law. Instead of doing organisational works, reporting, R D S etc she stays here in her brother-in-law’s house.

>Can anyone tell more about respected Diidii Ananda Niitimaya:

Yes brother. According to wt didis she is the most cruel woman in Avdhutika dress. Didis don’t regard her as a didi. Nitimaya spends her most of time in her brother-in-law’s house, no interest she has in missionary works of Baba and Marga. It is suffice to say she is always with the deserter ex wts.

A margii,
Sambalpur.

Subject: Goenka’s Oil Was Stolen

Baba

== GOENKA’S OIL WAS STOLEN ==

Namaskar,

This is one important incident which recently transpired. We should all think how this should be addressed.

HOW SHRIMATI SEEMA GOENKA’S OIL WAS SECRETLY “RE-ROUTED”

Shriimati Seema Goenka of Tade Pade Gudam (A.P.) generously donated a huge container of cooking oil to Centre via the DSL Diidii of Rajmundari.

Seema Goenka kindey allotted that oil for didis camps etc. But Avadhutika Ananda Nitimaya Acarya interceded and instructed that DSL Diidii to bring that oil directly to Jhar Sugura where a margii would meet her. When DSL Diidii arrived at the station in Jhar Sugura, she was surprised to see that that Niitimaya’s laokik brother-in-law (Diidiiji’s laokik sister’s husband) was there to receive the cargo and unload the oil container. That brother-in-law took away that huge vat of oil along with other cargo that was collected for Ananda Marga service projects etc, and he kept it for his laokik family.

The kind donor of the edible oil, Shrimati Seema of Tade Pade Gudam, has no idea about any of this. Indeed, at this very moment, she probably thinks that the oil she generously donated was used to feed all the wts and participants at the camps, RDS, etc. She does not know that her donation was hijacked and redirected to the laokika family of Ananda Niitimaya. Rather Seema Goenka thinks it was used by all Diidiis in the camp for their enjoyment. But the oil reached somewhere else. When all the Diidiis reached in RDS etc, then Ananda Niitimaya told them that there is no food and that they needed to go beg in the town and bring something eat.

PLEASE FORWARD OR INFORM GOENKA FAMILY

So this is the tragic tale of how Diidiiji Ananda Niitimaya stole the oil donated by Srmati Seema Goenka and how Ananda Niitimaya furthermore mistreated her junior workers by depriving them of food.

Anyone who reads this, please forward this email and the entire Goenka family should be informed as well.

Can anyone tell more about respected Diidii Ananda Niitimaya.

Namaskar,
Jayashrii Behra
