== RE: ABOUT THAT FAMOUS BOGUS QUOTE ==

~ Part 9 ~

(Note: This is the 9th letter of this series. Links to the prior 8 letters are noted below. – Eds)

Namaskar,
“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.” (From: Re: About That Famous Bogus Quote #7, posted: 10/02/2012)

Yes, there is no basis for this quote: Baba did not merge Himself into the mission / organisation.

WORK AND STATURE OF LORD KRSNA

Here is further proof:

Baba says, “The Mahábhárata cannot stand if we remove Krśńa from it; while if we wish to remove the Mahábhárata and retain Krśńa, Krśńa will stand a bit diminished, though He will stand.” (Namami Krsnasundaram, Disc: 1)

By Baba’s above teaching, it is clear that the totality of Lord Krsna’s life is not defined by the Mahabharata. Other than the Mahabharata, Lord Krsna made significant contributions and blessed humanity in all kinds of ways.

GRAND SCOPE OF BABA’S WORK

Similarly, to say that Baba merged Himself in the mission / organisation and that the whole of Baba is linked with Ananda Marga Pracarak Samgha (AMPS) is to completely disregard Baba’s work from 1921 to 1955. Yet in those years, He showered His grace and taught sadhana to many disciples.

In 1939, Baba graciously performed the first initiation into Ananda Marga. And before that, He initiated and taught meditation to hundreds – even thousands. Yet only 29 disciples were known. Baba told margiis about those early disciples and why He did not bring them into Ananda Marga Pracarak Samgha (AMPS). And when margiis furthermore requested, then Baba told, “They [those early disciples] need not come into the organisation, they will serve humanity from outside the channels of AMPS.”

Hence, side by side, Baba was guiding those early disciples as well as those who learned Ananda Marga meditation system.

BABA’S CONTRIBUTIONS NOT LIMITED TO AMPS

So outside the organisational structure of AMPS, Baba did many things. Not only that, even after the formation of Ananda Marga Pracarak Samgha in 1955, Baba still continued His job at the railway office for 11 more years or so, into the mid 1960’s.

To say that now Baba’s existence is only limited to Ananda Marga Pracarak Samgha and that He has merged into that is to strike down and diminish Baba’s many contributions and gifts.

Besides founding and presiding over AMPS, Baba did many things – He graciously blessed the world in various ways that were not within the periphery of the organisation. Here I am not belittling the value and utility of the organization (AMPS), but addressing the “veracity” of this merge in mission quote – it is patently false.

Namaskar,

Note 1: THE TWO VERSIONS OF THIS BOGUS QUOTE

For those not aware, here are the two versions of the bogus quote…

(1) Here is the version of the bogus quote propagated by Ac. Sarvatmanandji and other Dadas starting in Oct 1990:

“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.”

(2) Here is the quote as it appears in the unofficial book – Supreme Expression I – which was published by an outside group / agency:

“If you want to see Me, do my Mission because I am merged with my Mission. I am not this physical body, this physical body is not me. I am in your hearts and you are in mine. Only devotion can demand my physical presence.” (Supreme Expression I, p. 57 (1978)
