Baba

PS Intro: This song depicts that initial time when Guru first comes into the life of any devotee. In that special moment, it often happens that one does not really understand the great importance and pure divinity of that charming Personality. But then later on, after further reflection and sadhana, one gradually develops an inner appreciation of the greatness of that Sadguru. Then the sadhaka wants Parama Purusa’s proximity more and more. With this feeling, the sadhaka will look back upon those old memories with repentance. Because when Parama Purusa first came to the sadhaka then he – the sadhaka – was not able to receive Parama Purusa properly in his heart. The sadhaka could not fully grasp the true value of Sadguru’s gracious visit. So now when the sadhaka has a more developed longing and yearning for Parama Purusa, then he feels that he foolishly wasted that earlier opportunity when Parama Purusa Himself came in his life. Because now at present it is not so easy to get Parama Purusa by oneself – by one’s own doing. That type of scene is expressed in this following Prabhat Samgiita.

“Path cine esechilo aja’na’ pathik, mor duya’re ks’an’ik da’nr’iyachilo…” (PS 2371)

Purport:

O’ how gracious that Divine Entity is. Ajana Pathik came to my home; He came intentionally and He stood directly in front of my door for a moment. Tragically, that time I was not aware about who He was so I did not invite Him to come inside. Thus with His sweet and gentle smile He slowly went away that time. Afterwards, the tender image of His sweet, charming face was floating in my mind again and again – I could not forget Him. A few moments passed like that.

After some time, I realised my blunder and I opened the door and desperately ran outside as fast as I could and looked around trying to find Him – hoping to find that divinely charming Entity. I searched for Him in near and far places but that was all in vain; He was not there. Alas, I could not find Him; only His mala was there. Where has He gone!

Today I feel deep repentance. In human life, so many mistakes happen; and people also feel repentant for those past mistakes. So today I am calling Him again and again with a very deep, heart-felt longing and with an upsurge of emotion. But I do not know if that call is reaching His ears or touching His heart. O’ my dearmost Baba, please hear me.

When I was not aware about who He was then at that time He came but I did not receive Him. And now, by His grace, I feel love for Him in the inner core of my heart, but He is not paying heed to my yearning for His proximity. O’ the Divine Entity, please do not play hide and seek with me any longer. Please come, You are my everything…

== SOLUTION OF MISERY ==

Namaskar,
Here below Baba gives us the solution to one very common human ailment. In our present era in particular, people suffer a lot from this problem. We should help relieve them of this malady.

Baba says, “Human misery originates from one’s imperfect thoughts. By ideating on the Great one can be relieved of misery forever.” (Ananda Marga Ideology and Way of Life – 7)

Baba’s above guideline is very unique. He is explaining to us that pain is the result of improper thinking. The insinuation being: Pain is related with the mind only. When the mind is filled with higher thoughts – ideating on the Great – then it goes beyond pain and pleasure. That is the state of eternal bliss.

We can see in our day to day life how one life scenario can be very painful to one person yet quite fine for another. It depends completely on one’s psychic perception and state of mind.

We also see that just by thinking in a negative way people invite serious psychic tension and mental depression in their life. Whereas, if their thinking is proper then that brings bliss – but if it is improper then that causes sorrow. This is why in so-called developed nations the problem of depression and psychic diseases is more than in comparison to other places: Due to improper thinking.

As we all know, proper thinking means ideating on Parama Purusa. Sadhakas know this theorem yet under the spell of Avidya Maya they forget this most of the time.

Day long we should remind ourselves and involve our thoughts with Him through kiirtan, sadhana, 2nd lesson, half-sadhana, dhyana, manan, shravan, imbibing cosmic ideation, and more. And we should guide others onto the path as well.

By this way the age-old problem of misery will be kept in check.

Namaskar,
Ramdhan

Namaskar,

“And when Didiji is doing “organisational work” then that time is spent sorting through donations intended for our universal human family, and diverting the best things to her laokik home. This is the common fact – you can confirm this with anyone in the Sambalpur area. They all know this Didiji is trustless. Didiji spends huge amounts of time in Ambika Nagar (Sambalpur) in the house of her brother-in-law, and everyone sees what she does, i.e. diverts edible oil, clothes, shoes, blankets, cash and more to her worldly family.” (From: WT Steals Public Funds #6, posted 8/25/12)

I read the account of Didi Ananda Niitimaya’s fiscal impropriety and have these thoughts on how to classify this misdeed.

Suppose someone is working in the air force and they started diverting air force resources to their family by using monies or planes for their personal pleasure vacations, then that is a crime. It is blatant misuse of public funds and punishable by law.

What Didiji is doing is also a crime – no matter how much she tries to deny it publicly. Didi Ananda Niitimaya is collecting donations directly and indirectly from both margiis and non-margiis and then diverting those resources to her lokaik home. What she is doing is against the law – it is theft; it is a crime. Plus she is betraying the public trust. However, the nature of Didiji’s wrongdoing does not end there.

Didiji is furthermore doing sin as she is blatantly and intentionally going against Guru’s mandate and dharmic codes. She has taken the vow to serve the greater society; yet she is breaking that vow to Guru by allocating public resources to her worldly family. To go against dharma and Guru is veritably sin.

So Didi Ananda Niitimaya is plunged in both crime and sin – her situation is not at all good.

Namaskar,
Laliita Mahatab

Note 1: MORE OF BABA’S WARNINGS & REGULATIONS ON BLACK MONEY & FISCAL RESPONSBILITY FOR WTS

We should all be critically aware of the WT conduct rules related with black money. The writer of the first letter, Nandini ji, posted two and here are two more:

“Whenever supervisory worker so desires, the worker is to give the proper account of expenditure tallying with the cash at their disposal.” (Wt Conduct: Six Additional Rules, pt# 1c)

“Each amount of collection should be deposited properly and drawn after submitting requisition..” (Wt Conduct: Six Additional Rules, pt# 1d)
