Baba

== NEWS: LIILABODHANANDJI, NITYASHIVANANDJI, & ANANDA GIITA DIDI ==

Namaskar,
“Didi Ananda Giita has been looking after her own laokik father and keeps him in a Didi’s jagrti…

Our dedicated Wt Didis are not to have contact with their laokik family. To stop their missionary work and address worldly family matters is not at all appropriate for our Wts…

Didi Ananda Giita must not get involved in the life affairs of her worldly father. That runs contrary to our wt code of conduct.

When this very senior Didi Ananda Giita does like this then naturally she is extending “an open invitation” for all junior Didis to involve with their laokik families. In short, this sets a very bad example as it directly encourages others to go against Baba’s stated conduct rule. And that is what is going on. Countless junior Didis are in constant communication with their laokik families – giving them money, Ananda Marga resources and giving and receiving emotional support. Didi Ananda Niitimaya is not the only one who has fallen in this way…

Make no mistake – the problem is rampant. And it all started and got reinforced at the top with respected Didi Ananda Giita…

The Ananda Giita faction is currently riddled by turmoil. The leader herself – respected Didi Ananda Giita – ignores Baba’s rule and now all the junior Didis are following her poor example.

“No relation should exist with worldly family.” (32 Rules for Avadhutikas, pt #9)

Yet, Didi Ananda Giita gives special treatment to her laokik father by having him live on a didi’s master unit. She arranged this specially for him. Yet it is known by all that males are not to live or be treated in a Didi’s jagrti or MU. But Ananda Giita imposed this and crossed the gender boundary because of her deep attachment to her laokik father.

And this created a cascading effect.”

I have been extremely busy and am just now getting caught up on my emails. But I am aware about this problem of Wt’s being heavily involved with their laokik families. Here I have a few more cases to add, as well as more info on respected Didi Ananda Giita.

THE CASE OF LIILABODHANANDJI

Many may be aware about Dada Liilabodhananda: He invests big money in multi-story buildings such as apartments & related construction projects across India. He has invested more then 10 million rupees (1+ crore, or 100+ lakhs), and he also has big business interests in other fields. The result: Dada Liilabodhananda has a grand flat for retirement in Mumbai – for he and his laokik family. Plus he has been sending huge monies to his laokik family in north Bihar for years and years. They are now rich. Why has no one opposed Dadaji? Because he is a big-time hitman for VSS so everyone is scared to say anything to him for fear of the repercussions.

THE CASE OF NITYSHIVANANDJI

Dada Nityashivananda is posted in Australia, but his laokik home is Indor (MP). Dada’s laokik sister is employed as a private primary school teacher and makes little money. Dadaji’s laokik brother is an electrical handyman. Thus it became Nityashivananda’s “responsibility” to make his worldly family wealthy.

By his help they have upgraded their economic status. They have purchased flats in multi-story buildings costing 16 lakhs rupees.

Various margiis were wondering how a financially poor family got so much money so suddenly. Now everyone understands how this happened. Dadaji has been bank-rolling everything for his laokik family. They have all become rich.

SHORT REFLECTION

So the cases of Liilabodhanandji and Nityashivanandji clearly depict how some dadas are deeply involved with their laokik families and doing all kinds of things for them, especially on points of acquiring money, wealth, and property.

RESPECTED DIDI ANANDA GIITA:

DECADES NEGLECT OF AVADHUTIKA RULES

Now I would like to bring more of the history on respected Didi Ananda Giita because she has a long history of being with her laokik father. This is not a new development that happened only recently when her worldly father became so ill. This is an ongoing situation – here is the background. Various Wts have shared this with me and now I pass it along to you.

In Kolkata, there was a respected lady named Sonia didi. She was a great bhakta and she was caring for home children for a long time. Eventually, Sonia Didi purchased a small piece of land near our Tiljala ashram in Kolkata. And on that piece of land she made a two-story building.

She was running a children’s home in the same building. On the ground floor, Didi Ananda Madhunicanda’ was residing along with home children. One level up on the first floor, Sonia didi was living along with Didi Ananda Sampurna didi.

Things were carrying on in this way.

Then in 1997, when Ananda Giita’s laokik mother passed away, then her laokik father was broken down and became disturbed and weak. That time respected Ananda Giita Didi was global worker (CWWS). She herself, or by her order, had her laokik father brought to Sonia Didi’s house in Kolkata.

So Didiji’s laokik father was residing on the ground floor along with others in the same building. His food was also coming from the didi ashram (WWD). From 1997 to 2003 this was a routine and this was known to all workers.

In 2003, there was break in the organisation. Since Giita didi became CWWS of Rudrananda’s side, so she was not allowed to reside in the Tiljala WWD jagrti. So she shifted her base from the jagrti to the house of Sonia didi. Hence, Didi Ananda Giita Didi was residing in 1st Floor and her laokik father on ground floor. This house became her chief residence and her Kolkata office – and at the same time this is where her laokik father was also being cared for.

From 2003 onward, whenever Ananda Giita didi was supposed to come to Kolkata, she was always staying in Sonia Didi’s house along with her laokik father. People say she was visiting Kolkota frequently because of her love and attachment for her laokik father. This type of emotional and financial support went on for years, decades – and it is still going on.

Then in 2010, her laokik father was brought to Umeria MU, which is just 18 km from Raipur. (Here it should be noted that her laokik father’s home property was in Lodhipara, Station Road, Raipur, Chatisgarh.)

People raised the question that if he was supposed to be cared why was her laokik father not brought to Umeria earlier, as that is closer to his Raipur home.

Now we know the answer. Didi Ananda Giita herself was in Kolkata back in 1997 and onwards, and she desired to have her laokik father there with her.
This is information that is known to many – it is not a secret and cannot be covered up.

So this whole ordeal with her worldly father is in its third decade – at least. From the 1990’s, all throughout the first decade of the new millennium, and then in this present decade.

FOR THEIR WELL-BEING

I write this letter with the welfare of these wts in mind: Liilabodhanandji, Nityashivanandji, and senior-most Ananda Didi. They should mend their ways and save themselves from the ghastly attack of avidya maya. Otherwise they will be forced to undergo negative pratisaincara and pass through plant and animal life all over again. All because they broke their oaths and conduct rules and set a very harmful example by giving financial support to their laokik family.

Here we must remember that for an avadhutika, avadhuta and any wt, they have taken an oath: Shrii Shrii Anandamurtiji is everything, my Father, my Mother, my Brother, my Sister, and all my relations. There is none other than He. This is the spirit of the oath.

Thus, as wholetimers, they have only one family: The entire universe is their family. In contrast, grhiis or family people have two families: The big universal family, and their small worldly family.

So there is no question then of Wts being in contact with their laokik relations etc. They have given and dedicated their all to Baba. Breaking this oath is not good.

FINAL REFLECTION

Who learned from whom I do not know. Did Liilabodhanandji and Nityashivanandji learn these tricks from respected Didi Ananda Giita, or vice-versa. I cannot say. But this much is clear. Wt involvement with their laokik families is a contagious and harmful disease these days in Ananda Marga Pracaraka Samgha.

Here I close out with Baba’s guideline:

“No relation should exist with worldly family.” (32 Rules for Avadhutikas / Avadhutas, pt #9)

Plus, Baba has also warned wts about the misuse of funds and black money in the form of secretly diverting money to their laokik families .etc

“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)

At His lotus feet,
Preeti Bhalla

PRABHAT SAMGIITA

“A’loya bhara’ toma’r dhara’ saba’r tare, saba’r tare,
A’sa’ hetha’y toma’r krpa’y, toma’ri ka’j kariba’re…” (4767)

Purport:

Baba, by Your grace, everyone comes on this earth to do Your work. Everyone has come here to chant Your holy name. Baba, this earth, Your land, is filled with Your divine effulgence. It is for everyone; it is for everyone.

Baba, since eternity You have been my Dearmost. Baba whatever way You want to keep me in Your shelter, I accept – whether that be in tears or smiles. Whatever You like, You give; that will be best for me. From my side, those things which I have lovingly prepared with my full heart to offer (arghya [1]) at Your lotus feet, please accept them.

Baba, You were mine and You will be mine up to eternity; I am also Yours – forever, trika’l [2]. Baba, in this universe we all dance around You by Your grace. You are the focal point; in the end everyone will finally merge into You.

Baba, Your world is for all – for all. Your shelter is for all…

END NOTES FOR PRABHAT SAMGIITA #4767:

[1] Trika’l: The prefix ‘tri’ means ‘three’; and the stem ‘ka’l’ means ‘time’. Hence trika’l refers to the three phases of time: Past, present, and future.

[2] Arghya: The term arghya means ‘offering’ though more specifically it refers to that offering which is purely psychic or mental in nature – the
offerings of the mind. In contrast to offer those things which are physical in nature is nirma’ly. Hence in the above song since the term arghya is used, the sadhaka is offering all his mental colours and longings at the lotus feet of Guru. The sadhaka is offering all the love of his heart to his Lord. Thus the devotee’s offering is purely psychic or psycho-spiritual in nature. Whereas the offering done to various gods and goddesses in the dogmatic religions is called nirma’ly since on those occasions those followers are offering physical objects like food, incense, animals etc. Baba has outlined this distinct difference between arghya and nirma’ly in a few different discourses.
