Baba’s following teaching is highly relevant to a recent and ironic downfall of one general who wrote the handbook on counter-terrorism.


Na antalikkhe na samuddamajjhe
Na pabbatanam vivaram pavissa
Na vijjati so jagatippadeso
Yatthatthitam nappasaheyya maccu.

Baba says, “Suppose a person commits a wrong by accepting a bribe. While receiving the bribe he thinks that no one is watching, but that is impossible. A third entity is watching everything. No one can do anything secretly in this universe. But the bribe-taker thinks the opposite because avidyá shakti has placed a veil between him and the Supreme Being. This is a very dangerous situation. It is just like a hare being chased by a hunter: the hare sits down and covers its eyes with its ears and, thinks, “I cannot see anything, so the hunter cannot see anything either. Hence he won’t be able to kill me.” This is a deadly mistake! Wherever one commits a wrong, be it in the depths of the ocean or in a high mountain cave, one cannot escape the consequences: one will certainly be detected one day or another.” (Subhasita Samgraha – 18)

In His above teaching, Baba guides us that no deed goes unseen in this universe. Some people mistakenly think that they can commit wrongful crimes and atrocities and keep those ills hidden. But, as Baba says, that is impossible. Parama Purusa sees everything. One will have to face the consequences – there is no way out, nowhere to hide. For every misdeed, there is a corresponding consequence. It is inevitable; there is no escape. That is Baba’s explicit warning.


Last month, General David Petraeus, the head of the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), was taken down in scandal, the irony of which cannot be overlooked.

Over the course of his lengthy, multi-decade career as a military officer, strategist, and counter-terrorism leader, General Petraeus has engaged in numerous types of dealings. Here is a short bio of his career:

– He was the Director of the CIA from June 30, 2011 to December 2012.

– CIA carries out signature drone strikes that have killed countless, innocent citizens in various countries.

– Plus the CIA is arguably the most covert, clandestine organisation in the world that oversees countless operatives, secret alliances and investigations, undercover attacks, and a vast array of operations.

– And Petraeus is “in” on all of this, because he was the head of the CIA.


– As a top general in the military, Petraeus did so many operations, including arranging the sales of arms to various governments so big capitalists could profit.

– The US sells arms and weapons to those governments around the world which they want to keep in power. Even if the government is crushing their own people, such as in Bahrain, the US will continue to provide arms to those corrupt leaders in exchange for their loyalty and / or resources. The US has done this all over the world – they have supported debased, despotic leaders across the Middle & Far East to throughout Latin / Central America, and on every continent from Africa to Europe.

– In those areas where the US is not in favour of the regime, then the US military will arrange for the selling of arms to various combatants and militia groups in order to topple the regime such as in Iran. The US has been giving arms to various militants around the world and even drug lords like Manuel Noriega of Panama. Often the US supports militia groups and helps them gain power; once in power they embark in so many hostilities and the US often has to invade to bring them down. In this way, the US military creates so many problems. And General Petraeus has been part of all this for decades.

– There are many more tales to tell of power and corruption.


Here is how Petraeus was caught…

Through an unusual chain of events, an investigative team came across a secret email account that General Petraeus shared with one woman where they talked in detail of their illicit relationship etc. Both were already married. Their secret affair was further examined and ultimately exposed, thereby forcing General Petraeus to step down from his position as head of the CIA and retire. He lost his post and stature, after it was uncovered that he was involved with two females.

Interestingly, he was using the same email trick that terrorists use: Never send the actual email; just write a letter and place it in the ‘drafts’ folder, then the other person logs into that same account and reads the message in the drafts folder. That way there is no email transmission and everything is “secret.” This is what terrorists do and this is what Petraeus did.

Yet, he was exposed. How ironic is it that the one man who was hailed as the greatest expert in secret intelligence – and had all resources, technology, and techniques at his finger tips – was brought down by his own tactics.

Indeed, in this universe it is impossible to hide. Those involved in wrongdoing will be exposed.


While the events leading to the downfall of General Petraeus are quite dramatic, and depict how even the most sophisticated agent of secret intelligence can be caught and exposed, Baba’s teaching is not limited to such decorated leaders alone.

In each and every place, big or small, wherever people reside there are some who misuse their power. Blinded by ego they think, “nothing can harm me, I may do as I please.” In that way they cheat and harm others. It may be between husband and wife, boss and employee, neighbor to neighbor, group to group, or whomever. Wherever one person or group grabs the upper hand then they generally fall under the false notion that they are unbeatable.

But in all such circumstances, they will one day meet their fate and undergo the consequences of their misdeeds. There is nowhere to run or hide. Everyone must be accountable to their each and every action. That is divine law.

So none should think that only highly posted government agents are prone to being exposed. No one should think, “This does not apply to me.”

As Baba guides us, this rule applies universally for everyone. Where there is sin – where there is injustice – where there is corruption etc, there will be consequences to follow. The remarkable response is that one’s ego does not allow them to think that they too will meet their fate. No one thinks that they will be caught.

All should be alert and know that there is no place to hide – all one’s actions are seen by Parama Purusa.


We should all live by the tenets of yama and niyama and inspire others to do that same. In that way we can march forward onto the path of spirituality. Then our reactions will just be sweet and blissful.

We should be cent-per-cent vigilant that our actions are just. When, cent per cent of the time we can remember that Parama Purusa is watching us – and that there is no place to hide – then we will save ourselves from all kinds of troubles and hardship.

Baba says, “In an attempt to escape from one’s sins and misdeeds you may retire to the Himalayas from Kanpur, but you cannot go beyond that. So the question arises, where will you escape to? Suppose you commit some wrong, and to escape the evil outcome of those misdeeds and avoid punishment you try to hide yourself in the sky or in an unknown place or at the bottom of the sea or in a mountain cave. But can you really hide yourself anywhere? In fact in this universe there is not an inch of space where one can conceal oneself.” (Subháśita Saḿgraha Part 11)

at His feet,


Baba says, “Nothing is hidden from Him. Humans cannot conceal anything they do from Him. If you say to somebody, “Don’t tell anyone about this,” Parama Puruśa hears you saying privately not to tell anyone. Therefore it is said that He has a separate face for each unit being, with which He sees everyone. Na antariikśe na samudramajjhe – “Neither in the sky, nor in the ocean,” nor in a cave, can you hide yourself. Nowhere in the Cosmos can you hide from Him.” (Subhasita Samgraha – 21)
“Bhulo kare eso priyo a’ma’r ei kut’ire…” P.S. 1808


O’ my Dearmost Baba, it seems that knowingly You do not want to come in my hut. Please, at least, come once – if only by mistake. It is true that I do
not have any quality or attribution – nor do I have devotion. Then by which force can I call You. To call You and request You to come to my home, devotion is needed. And that I do not have. That is why I request You to please come by Your causeless grace. Baba, You know that I am not the ocean of knowledge; nor do I have a huge quantity of intellect. I am completely loaded with imperfections and impurities. Nobody likes to look toward me; everyone avoids me thinking that I am a most ordinary type of being. Baba, please grace me. Baba, I have full faith and trust. You are my hope – of my hopeless heart; You are my colourful dream. My entire longing and my entire thirst and whole love is revolving around You. Baba, You are my everything. Please keep me close or away, it is up to You…
