“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.” (From: WT Steals Public Funds #7, posted 8/28/12)

Seeing what Didi has done, it is evident that there is a great need for fiscal transparency in organisational dealings. If this type of thing continues, AMPS will suffer a lot as no one will have the trust to donate anything to the organisation.

Baba has warned wts about the misuse of funds and black money.

“No worker can keep unaccounted money (black money) with him.” (Wt Conduct: Six Additional Rules, pt# 1a)

“Each worker will separately maintain the clear account of receipt and expenditure of his personal allowance and organizational money.” (Wt Conduct: Six Additional Rules, pt# 1b)

“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)

“Proper vouchers are to be maintained for each item of expenditure.” (Wt Conduct: Six Additional Rules, pt# 1e)

Unfortunately, Didi Ananda Niitimaya has blatantly disregarded and contravened Baba’s stated conduct rules regarding fiscal responsibility and black money. Only by adopting a policy of transparency will we be able to put a halt to these types of misdeeds. Only then with AMPS be able to regain the public trust, which is critically necessary for the survival of the organisation.

Tapashii Pattanaik


We should all pay heed to Baba’s below guideline about tapah an serving others. If our donations do not reach the right person or party, then we ourselves are to be held accountable. If we fail to ensure that our donation is used to serve those in need, then that service or donation is meaningless. With a good heart many in the Marga wish to serve those in need, but unfortunately their efforts will be in vain if their donations do not reach suffering humanity. Verily those kind-hearted donors are responsible – in part – for this impropriety. That is Baba’s warning.

Baba says, “Tapah devoid of knowledge is bound to be misused. The opportunists will misuse your energy by extracting work from you to serve their selfish ends, and at the same time this will deprive the real sufferers of their due services from you. A rich miser approaches you with a tale of woe and entreats you to give him relief. Being moved with pity, if you do what is needed to relieve him of his suffering, the very purpose of tapah will be defeated, as it is without any knowledge or reasoning. The end result of your service will be that the rich man whom you have served will become more miserly and more selfish and will, in the future, try to deceive in a greater way people who dedicate themselves to the service of humanity. Secondly, as you will, to some extent, know his inner motive, you will become mentally depressed and you will also develop a hostile attitude towards him. Therefore, while following the principle of tapah you should ascertain fully well whether the person you are going to serve, really needs your service. Only then should you engage yourself in service…Therefore, you will have to ascertain with discrimination where your responsibility lies and to what extent; otherwise all your time, energy and labour employed in tapah will be in vain…because in such cases you do not make the proper use of objects.” (A Guide to Human Conduct, Tapah Chapter)
