Baba

== BABA STORY: SADGURU NEVER DIES ==

Namaskar,
During my stay in Tiljala, I was attending to Beloved Baba as a medical doctor. The year was 1990. Those days in my sadhana I would regularly put forth this request: “Baba, I do not want live on this earth without a Guru, so please do not leave Your physical body so long as I am alive.”

Per my medical duty, when I would check Baba in His room, I used to do sastaunga pranam – both upon entering and after finishing my work. In prostration I would offer: “May my service make you well, Baba please become healthy.”

Then the scene changed. After some time I could not control anything. Baba manifested His plan.

After the events of late October 1990, I was feeling like I was immersed in sheer darkness. I was thinking, “Baba is my shelter and now He is gone – I am shelterless.” It was a very tormenting period for me. Time passed like this: November, December, and into January 1991.

Amazingly, one day I saw Him in the very same room where I would treat Him. And I was actually treating Him. Incredibly, Baba became alright and I shouted loudly and told everyone the good news: “Look Baba is ok!” After that Baba put me in His lap and He embraced and loved me as my Father. And He told me that, “I am healthy now.” Hearing this, I became very happy.

When I woke up from that dream, I was feeling very blissful. Every cell and pore of my mind and body were virbrated with His divine presence. I felt completely new and revitalised. My one and only thought was: Baba, You are so gracious.

After some time, I had another experience with Him. Baba told me something but I did not hear what He said.

Politely and respectfully I asked, “Baba, what did You say?”

Baba graciously repeated the question, “Does Guru ever die?”

What could I say – Baba was directly in front of me. I was so ashamed – how could I have thought that Baba would leave. What reply could I give? I kept quiet, basking in the sweet closeness of His divine presence.

Then Baba told me, “Guru never dies.”

After that second dream, my mind became wholly transformed, by His grace. Today, I still feel that Baba is always with me. He has not gone away to some other world. He is here – with me: I am not shelterless. It is His grace…it is His grace…

Namaskar,
CG Goswami

REFLECTIONS ON THE ABOVE STORY

As you may know, Dr CG Goswami of Madhya Pradesh served as one of Baba’s doctors and lived in Tiljala to monitor Baba’s health. The above story is his own first-person narration so the “I” noted in the story refers to Dr Goswamiji.

SO-CALLED MAHAPRAYAN IS BOGUS – BABA IS ALWAYS WITH YOU

The above story gives the clear-cut view that the so-called mahaprayan is 100% bogus. Why? Because mahaprayan itself means that Baba is gone, yet Baba’s pointed and devotional message is that He is with us always. Devotees get this realisation in their dreams and sadhana. Throughout Ananda Marga scripture, it is stated again and again that, “Parama Purusa is always with you.”

Because Guru is present, even today when initiations are done then the acarya tells the initiate, “Your Guru is Shrii Shrii Anandamurtiji.” Not only that, every sadhaka does dhyana asking for Baba’s grace. So it is just hypocrisy for those Dadas to try to justify so-called mahaprayan. Baba is present the in the heart and mind of each and every bhakta.

A FEW OF BABA’S TEACHINGS

These following three teachings from Baba nicely support and complement the theme and expression of the above story.

1. Here below is the famous guideline that Baba Shrii Shrii Anandamurtiji is that eternal Divine Entity.

“Parama Brahma (Supreme Consciousness) is the only entity to be attained by living beings – That alone is Jagat Guru (the Supreme preceptor), That alone has revealed Brahmavidyá (intuitional science) to us through the medium of the name and form of Anandamúrtijii. Unit beings must be made to appreciate Its majesty.” (Caryacarya, Part 2, Sadhana, point #1a)

2. The following teaching from Ananda Sutram guides us that Brahma and Guru are one.

3-9. Brahmaeva gururekah náparah.
[Only Brahma is the guru, no one else.]

Purport: Brahma alone is the guru. Brahma alone directs the units to the path of emancipation through the media of different receptacles or bodies. No one except Brahma conforms to the real significance of the word “guru”. (Ananda Sutram, 3-9)

3. The devotional approach in Ananda Marga is to ideate on the supreme truth that He is with you, watching you, and caring for you all the time – always. In stark contrast, the so-called mahaprayan program program states that Baba is gone. We should all pay heed to Baba’s below guideline and keep Him as the nearest and dearest One of the heart.

Dúrát sudure tadihántike ca pashyatsvihaeva nihitaḿ guháyám.

Baba says, “If you think that He is very far from you, He will remain forever beyond your reach. If you think that He is near, He will be so near that you need not move even an inch to attain Him.” (Ananda Marga Ideology & Way of Life – 6, Microcosm and Macrocosm)

Namaskar,

PRABHAT SAMGIITA

“Purn’ima rate niirave nibhrte mor phulavane esechile…” (P.S. 471)

Purport:

Baba, You came in my flower garden very secretly on that full moon night. You came in my flower garden. It was so divinely intoxicating to have You. All my thirst was quenched by Your presence; the whole universe became beautified and filled with the flowers and fruits.

O’ my Dearmost Baba, with Your divine touch, You graciously brought life to the lifeless. All those flower buds which never blossom, You made them bloom and You filled their heart with nectar.

You vibrated the whole environment with Your divine music, with Your octave. You vibrated everything with Your divine songs of Prabhat Samgiita. You vibrated the ‘madhu malainca’ by Your sweet smile. Baba, You came in my heart on that full moon night. It is Your grace…
