~ Part 7 ~

Namaskar.
Please accept my full support of Panda Dada’s letters and the highlighted portion in note #2.

“I am not this physical body, this physical body is not me. If you want to know me, work for my mission, because I have merged myself with my mission.”

I have been following this discussion about the above quote, as well as the quote printed in the unofficial book, Supreme Expression I. Between sadhakas there should be a clear-cut understanding – we should avoid accepting hearsay or speculation as the word of God.

JUST ASKING FOR TROUBLE (I.E. MORE FAKE QUOTES)

That which cannot be substantiated should not be accepted as the final word of God. If we do, then we are opening up the floodgates to more and more dogmas which the priest class will introduce, one after another.

THIS BOGUS QUOTE IS NOT ANYWHERE – JUST FABRICATED

On this basis, all forms of this merge-in-mission quote are useless to discuss – there is nothing to say. It is bogus from beginning to end. It is not printed in any authentic book published by Ananda Marga Pracaraka Samgha, nor included in any Procedural Order, nor is it available on any cassette. There is no authentic original source of this statement. That is why all rational margiis will conclude that the merge in mission quote is totally concocted. Better we should not argue about the veracity of this quote, as it is based in falsehood.

KAMDHENU ANALOGY

When at face value you see that something is fake & that it is total dogma, then what is the need to research and construct an argument on that point. When you see something shaped as a pig and squealing like a pig then there is no need to arrange a group of scientist to determine whether or not it is a kamdhenu (divine cow) which has descended from heaven. That is a total waste of time – human life is very, very important – it should not be wasted.

Namaskar,
Vishvashanti

Note 1: IMPORTANT POINT:

SOME THINK IT OK IF THEY CHANGE THE WORD “MERGE”

Some are under the impression that if they delete the word “merge” from the bogus quote then it is more in line with Baba’s teachings and hence we should accept it as Baba’s original teaching and include it as part of our Ananda Marga shastra. But this is not the right approach. We only take that to be scripture which we have Baba’s recorded voice or an approved transcription / translation. That alone is our Ananda Marga scripture. All kinds of hearsay, alleged statements, and even old Baba stories do not come within the purview or shastra.

The same goes for these bogus quotes about merge-in-mission. If we were to add one or both versions of this fake quote into Ananda Marga shastra, that opens the floodgates. Then one can add any type of Baba story or tale, or remembrance and publish that in His name as well. Or if we were to change the bogus quote to our liking and add it to the Ananda Marga shastra, then anyone could do the same with some other bogus or junk quote. Just think about the problems we would be inviting.

All along Baba was very strict about the sanctity of scripture. To be part of Ananda Marga scripture, there must be clear-cut proof that Baba actually spoke those words – either by His recorded voice or a publication which He Himself approved. There is no third option.

Note 2: CITATION FROM PANDAJI’S LETTER:

AC SARVATMANANDJI’S ROLE IN FABRICATING THIS BOGUS QUOTE

Dada Sarvatmanandji himself introduced / re-introduced this quote in October 1990 because at that time he was the organisation. He ruled over everything and he thought that by this quote everyone will be convinced fully to blindly follow and execute his order. This fake quote suited his needs well. Other Dadas who helped him in this regard included: Bhaveshanandji, Tadbhavanandji, Vratishvaranandji, Vijayanandji, Mantreshvaranandji, among others.

Some naive people may justify that the terms “mission” and “organisation” are two different things; but, practically speaking, they are not. In Bengal, mission means organisation such as the Ramakrishna Mission. And not just Bengal, the world over people talk about the Christian Missions. In these cases, they are talking about the Ramakrishna organisaton comprised of people and projects and the Christian mission comprised of people and projects. In common parlance mission means organisation.

And indeed if you read the propagandised quote it carries the same meaning – that mission is an organisation where people gather and work:

“If you want to know me, work for my mission, because I have merged myself with my mission.”

So it was in that spirit, whereby mission means organisation, that Sarvatmanandji created this fake quote. His intent was: Baba has merged in the mission (i.e. organisation) and the way to please Him is to work for the organisation and follow your higher authority. This was Sarvatmanandji’s plan for keeping all power concentrated in his hands. Remember, back in late October 1990, the whole of AMPS was very different – it was a monolithic structure under the dictatorship of one person. It was not fractured; there was one person the top seat. And indeed the plan worked; nobody opposed Dada Sarvatmananda.

Here is the proof: Just a few days later Central Committee unanimously declared the Mahaprayan Divas observance as an annual pilgrimmage to Tiljala – thereby making Kolkata the focal point. The mandate was for all to come to Tiljala to observe so-called Mahaprayan; it was not allowed to observe this anywhere else – only Tiljala (Kolkata.)

Hence, just as those Hindu priests fabricated one tale that Mahaprabhu merged into the Jagannath idol in order to appease and control all his disciples, similarly Sarvatmanandji concocted that false merge in mission quote and attributed it to Baba to eyewash legions of margiis and wts. Sarvatmanandji’s plan was that they should follow his every word because he (Dada Sarvatmananda) was the organisational head and Baba had merged Himself into the mission / organisation.

And we can see that Sarvatmanandji got success.

In the next few short years, he carried out so many dastardly deeds by his mere order: Mahaprayan dogma, Fake Ananda Vaniis, Expulsion as a weapon and so much more. Sarvatmanandji did so many things because he had harnessed the obedience of workers and margiis by concocting this single quote: “If you want to know me, work for my mission, because I have merged myself with my mission.” For this reason, so many listened to his every word and followed his command.

What then is the difference between Dada Sarvatmananda’s approach and that of those dogmatic priests of the Puri temple. Both fabricated outrageous tales in order to bring scores of followers under their control.

I think now the point is clear.

Namaskar,
N. Panda

PRABHAT SAMGIITA

“Toma’r katha’ bheve bheve din ye cale ja’y…” – P.S. 1703

Purport:

Baba, my days are passing thinking about You. In Your ideation, in Your sadhana, in Your dhyana. In that deep contemplation, my mind goes on floating towards its origin. But I never reach to the shore– the terminus.

In this vast cosmic creation, my value is just like one tiny drop in the huge ocean. In spite of this, I have longing for You and I have the full conviction that I will get You. By Your grace I will always be ensconced in Your longing.

I do not know when the culmination of my dhyana is going to happen. And when You will accept me; or when Your divine form will become effulgent in the core of my heart. This only can happen when You grace me.

Baba, in Your longing, my days are passing– thinking and ideating about You…

namaskar, you are correct that the distorted quote was published in 1990, however you are incorrect in stating that these quotes are false. during Baba’s stay in jail, many devotees told inspiring quotes that were told to them. these quotes were published in marga newsletters such as harbinger and crimson dawn in the US. recently a cd of all these old newsletters has been put online for everyone to read. take the time to do proper research and see the truth for yourself.
