“Ga’ne ga’ne tumi esecho pra’n’e pra’n’e mishecho…” (PS 2800)


Baba, when I sing Your blissful songs then You grace me by saturating my heart with more and more of Your divine presence. With Your infinite
compassion, You have come in the songs of my Prabhat Samgiita. My being has become full of devotion and love for You. Baba, You have come into my
heart, in my sadhana. Baba, You have blessed me by coming into my Guru cakra, in my mental plate. O’ my dearmost, You are so gracious.

Baba, You are incomparable. Your divine attributions are infinite. You are never limited or bound by the confines of this transitory physical world. You remain along with everyone always. Even then being the Taraka Brahma You also maintain Your divine stance beyond this world as well. Baba, Your liila is unfathomable.

Baba, You are the Ocean of Karuna’ – i.e. the Ocean of Divine Compassion – this everyone understands. Baba, when svarga [1] – i.e. good people – are in trouble, then You shower Your infinite compassion; and when bad people are in difficulty, then that time also You shower Your causeless grace. Baba, You are equally gracious on everyone. You help one and all in all circumstances – this divine truth everyone knows. Baba, in this mortal world selfish people perform actions in order to get something in return. Baba, You are beyond that. On the one side You do not desire anything from Your devotee – not their gold coins or anything; yet on the other side You want everything from them. Because You want more and more of their love until finally You take their whole existence – their entire mind and heart [2]. In that process they become one with You. This is Your divine liila.

Baba, You are ever-gracious…


[1] Svarga: In the above Prabhat Samgiita Baba uses this term ‘svarga’ to refer to good people or virtuous people. Literally speaking, ‘svarga’ means
‘heaven’. But in AM we do not believe in the dogmatic concepts of heaven and hell. Rather Baba guides us that heaven and hell are states of mind –
nothing more than that.

2-20: Na svargo na rasa’talah

“Purport: There exists no such thing as heaven or hell. When a person does a virtuous act or enjoys the fruits thereof, the environment around him is
then called heaven; and when he does an evil act and endures the consequences thereof, then the environment around that person becomes a
hell for him.” (Ananda Sutram, Sutra 2-20)

[2] “Ca’ona’ kon kichu tabu, sabai niye niyecho…”: The central idea of this last line of the Prabhat Samgiita is best described by Baba’s below teaching.

Baba says, “When human beings ask for money they must send some application letters, but when Parama Purus’a wants something from you, He will not ask for it, He will demand it. What He will ask you for, you will hesitate to give; for He will ask for nothing less than your whole existence. Those who
are prepared to give their all, even though they may be the most degraded sinners, become the full responsibility of Parama Purus’a, because they
have surrendered themselves completely to Him. They have not given away fifteen annas, keeping one anna for themselves [there are sixteen annas in
one rupee.] Hence it is the moral responsibility of Parama Purus’a to care for such people…those who have completely surrendered themselves to Him,
will certainly be cared for by Him.” (Ananda Marga Ideology and Way of Life – 11)


Here is one very interesting conversation for every sadhaka.

“Ya’jinavalkya asked, ‘What would you like?'”

“Maetreyii replied: ‘Yena’ham’ na’mrtasya’m’ tena’ham’ kim kurya’m'”

“‘What will I do with things which will not remain with me permanently? Of what use are the objects which will not establish me in immortality?…’Please give me that thing which will remain with me permanently, which I’ll be able to preserve forever, which will establish me in immortality. I don’t want anything else.'”

“Then Ya’jinavalkya gave her a number of instructions, upon which a major part of Raja Yoga is based’.” (Ananda Vacanamrtam – 7, p.44)

As per the above teaching, worldly things cannot and do not remain with us very long. All those objects are transient.

That is why ideal people run towards Parama Purusa.

Being Parama Purusa and Guru, Baba Himself has clearly guided us how to reach Him. On this point, we are extremely fortunate to at least have gotten the path. Now our main duty is to follow it.
