“A’j prabha’te a’lor pa’the nu’tan phuger ba’rta’ dile…” (P.S. 2001)


Baba, today in the dawn You came and gave the message that a new era is approaching. You told me to open my eyes and see how the darkness has faded away, and that humanity has gotten liberated from the serpentine noose of ignorance, staticity, and dogma.

The humanity which was stunned by exploitation, injustices, and the tortures done by demons, today that very humanity has developed the inner strength to kick out those demons and get free.

O’ Lord, You are the charioteer of the chariot of effulgence, and You have come here to guide everyone towards the Cosmic Goal. O’ my Dearmost, You have brought a basket of hope and inspiration: You are showering that upon everyone. You are so gracious

Baba, You came and sang the song of hope and showed us the path of enlightenment. You have given all that was needed. Baba You came in the dawn and gave the message of the new era – that of neo-humanism…



Baba says, “Suppose you rear hens, you feed them rice and of course you love them also. If someone takes one of your hens, you will fall out with him, and even come to blows. But it is that out of selfless love? Love must be untarnished and free from the least bit of selfishness. You feed the hens for your benefit; you are motivated by the thought that one day the hen will lay eggs and you will earn money by selling them. “Nija sukha la’gi ye kare pirite se ja’ni garala kha’ye” — One who loves others for self-interest, swallows poison.” (Tattva Koumudi)

In this era steeped in materialism and selfishness, where capitalism is king, we should all pay heed to Baba’s above teaching and help one and all understand its value.

Those who fall prey to this depraved mentality will ultimately meet their fate: They swallow poison. With sadhana one can easily rise above and love selflessly, by His grace. Then one’s outlook upon this world will be proper, otherwise not.

Every Ananda Margii knows that this above teaching from Baba is the idea of 2nd lesson. Whether one follows or not one should ask oneself, and try to perfect it.
