Subject: Proof of Outrightly Disobeying Baba
Date: Tue, 30 Oct 2012 10:22:45 +0530




As we all know, Ba’ba’ has given the system of observing Vijaya Dashamii as part of Sháradotsava from Śaśt́hii to Dashamii in Carya’carya. And we are to follow His social code.

Baba says, “In a word, Ananda Marga’s social code fulfils all the conditions of an ideal social code – it is universal, rational and psychological. It is eminently suited to the development of a dynamic social structure in this rapidly-changing world. As it has been formulated in conformity with the physical, psychic and social needs of human beings, people from all walks of life fully support it and are enthusiastically engaged in its implementation.” (Ananda Marga Philosophy in a Nutshell – 4)

The social code of Ananda Marga is ideal in all respects and, every Ananda Margii knows that Caryacarya is our social treatise. As stated above, in Caryacarya it is given that we are to observe and celebrate (a) Children’s Day (Śaśt́hii), (b) Public Day (Saptamii), (c) Fine Arts Day (Aśt́amii), (d) Music Day (Navamii), and (e) Victory Day (Dashamii) or Vijayotsava. These are our Ananda Marga festivals as given by Baba as part of Sháradotsava. (Reference Caryacarya Part 1, Social Functions and Festivals)

And this year (2012), these five days of festival arrived on 20 Oct to 24th October.

Unfortunately, instead of observing the A’nanda Festivals related with Sháradotsava, from Śaśt́hii to Vijaya Dashamii, from 20th Oct to 24th Oct, some persons observed the dogmatic function of so-called mahaprayan in Tiljala from 21st to 24th October. And on the 20th they either prepared for so-called mahaprayan observances or they used it as a travel day get to Tiljala etc. In so doing, they went against Sadguru’s instruction of celebrating the five festival dates of Sháradotsava.

Ba’ba’ taught us to follow – Mantramu’lam Gururva’kyam – but some of our brothers & sisters are going against His instruction. Really it is quite regrettable.



If we follow Ba’ba’s instructions there won’t be differences among us.

Third Front / EC joined Kalikata administration after Kinshuk da’da’ was made PP. Some had the hope that by this approach there would be a way of unifying other factions. But “unifying” various groups around a particular agenda is not unity. That never works.

The key point is that we have to bring ideological unity by following His instructions / guidelines given in black & white – not by following any groupist agenda like so-called mahaprayan. We are to abide by all His instructions.

Thus no one should fall prey to observing the dogmatic occasion of so-called mahaprayan. After all, so-called mahaprayan was prescribed by a few human beings, i.e. avadhu’tas / purodhas; whereas Vijaya Dashamii and the 5 festival dates of Sháradotsava was given by Mahasambhuti Baba Himself. On this ideological issue, I condemn the Kolkata faction.

I request one & all of our brothers / sisters to observe the festivals given in Carya’carya by Beloved Ba’ba’ & discard / reject the so-called commemoration invented by human beings like the members of the then central committee in the year 1990/91. Kindly scrap that appendix – “Mahaprayan Divas” – from Carya’carya without ifs & buts.

The solution is to follow Baba including His given festival dates, not the dogmatic programs like so-called mahaprayan invented by human beings.


Those who have devotion towards Guru will follow Him; they will do what He says. When our Ananda Marga festival of Victory Day, Vijaya Otsava (Dashamii) – and the other dates of Sháradotsava from Śaśt́hii to Dashamii – occurs during the same time as so-called mahaprayan, then one has to choose to either follow Guru or some obsolete groupists. Either one has to follow the dharma of Ananda Marga or the dogma of one group. True bhaktas will surely follow Baba and His eternal dharma.

And indeed, this issue will come up year after year as Vijaya Otsava (Dashamii) and the so-called mahaprayan program are going to coincide again and again. And not only Vijaya Otsava, but Diipavali too. On some years, the so-called mahaprayan program coincides with Baba’s given celebration of Diipavali. So that is another key point.

Those who follow the real teachings of Ananda Marga will celebrate Vijaya Otsava & Diipavali whereas those who blindly cling to the skeletons of dogma will fall in the mahaprayan category. Obviously, best is to follow Guru and His shining ideals and that is what most in Ananda Marga are doing.

All bhaktas will always follow Baba and celebrate His given festivals like Vijaya Dashamii & Diipavali.


I close this letter with these guidelines from Sadguru Baba:

[A] Baba says, “Ananda Marga wants to build up an ideal society such as this [moral society]. There should be a congenial environment where people will get the opportunity to enhance their physical, psychic and spiritual progress, and advance rhythmically and in unison towards Parama Puruśa. Hence, Ananda Marga has formulated a social treatise for the establishment of a congenial social structure.” (Prout Nutshell – 16)

[B] “Collective social functions. Many social problems arise due to lack of magnanimity, such as not properly understanding or respecting the views of others. This not only keeps people apart, but also makes them hostile to each other. People come together in different festivals and social functions which foster mutual bonds of unity. When they participate in such activities and remain engaged in the same type of collective action, they develop the feeling of temporary affinity. Ananda Marga encourages these types of social functions. Collective bathing and collective meditation on special occasions are as good as common social functions.” (Tattva Kaomudii – 2)

[C] Baba says, “In a word, Ananda Marga’s social code fulfills all the conditions of an ideal social code – it is universal, rational and psychological. It is eminently suited to the development of a dynamic social structure in this rapidly-changing world. As it has been formulated in conformity with the physical, psychic and social needs of human beings, people from all walks of life fully support it and are enthusiastically engaged in its implementation.” (Ananda Marga Philosophy in A Nutshell – 4)

[D] Baba says, “Caryacarya contains the guidelines for how an individual can best contribute his efforts to the collective momentum. It also provides guidelines for how the collective body shall foster each individual’s physical and psychic welfare.” (Prout Nutshell – 18, Talks on Education – Excerpt A)


Sincere margiis adhere to the code of Caryacarya where it says to follow Vijaya Dashamii as part of Sháradotsava from Śaśt́hii to Dashamii (20 Oct to 24 Oct 2012), not the so-called mahaprayan program invented by human beings. We should follow vijaya dahasamii given by Mahasambhuti. Those supporting so-called mahaprayan should think again: Why are you going against Baba? He is the Guru of all in Ananda Marga and all should follow His guideline.

My personal feeling is that those attending so-called mahaprayan divas have pure intentions; but, even then, according to the laws of prakrti, they will have to face the consequences for their wrongful action. Idol worshipers get turned into stone for adhering to their dogma; similarly, those supporting so-called mahaprayan will face reactions as well. Remember, disobeying Guru is abominable; we all should be vigilant to follow Him.

“We will not deviate an inch from our ideology, nor will we allow others to do so.” (Namah Shivaya Shantaya, Shiva’s Teachings – 2: Disc 14)

Brotherly yours


PS Intro: In this following song the devotee is talking to Baba, and in the second stanza the bhakta is indirectly referring to himself.

“Jeo na’, shon’o katha, bojha vytha’, abujha hoyo na’…” (PS 660)


Baba, please be gracious, please do not leave me all alone, please do not go far away; please keep me in Your shelter. Baba, please listen to the tale of my aching heart; please understand my pain and suffering – because of my deep longing for You. Baba, I beg You not to remain aloof about my yearning and crying for You. Baba, You have graced me and have made the flower of devotion blossom in my heart. And these flowers are solely for making one beautiful garland for You – ultimately surrendering them at Your lotus feet. Baba, please do not mercilessly crush those flowers. Baba, please be gracious.

Baba, with Your infinite compassion, please keep me close. Please do not permanently forget about that person who is under Your shelter day and night. Baba, it seems You have removed him from Your memory. Baba, please recall how in the past You loved him deeply up to his heart’s content. That time You saturated his mind with bliss and filled his eyes with Your loving gaze. You were so gracious those days. Baba, You know that very person was with You in each and every rhythm of the song, he was also with You in all kinds of works – always remaining by Your side. Baba, please do not forget him.

Baba, by Your grace I never forget this eternal truth that You are everything. You are the effulgence of the day as well as the darkness of the night. Baba, in this life of mine I have loved only You. Baba, You are the heart of my heart. Please shower Your divine grace on me day and night, incessantly. Baba, even if You always remain forgetful of me, that I can tolerate. Only I ask one thing of You. Baba, please do not push me away from Your holy, lotus feet.

Baba, You are my closest & dearest One. You are my everything. Baba, please keep me in Your shelter…

Subject: Underlying Reasons Behind Mess At DMS



In the wake of the recent goings-on in Ananda Nagar, some have been led to conclude that a single DMS was held. With a balanced mind we should determine how far this is accurate. We should also understand the forces at play behind the mess at this January 2012 DMS.

Please consider the following and share your thoughts.


1. Late in the game, i.e. at the end of 2011, the Tiljala Administration (a.k.a. B group) petitioned for a court injunction to hold their winter DMS in December – as opposed to having to wait until January. Tiljala got a favourable review by the courts and were granted the December time slot. By this way they were able to hold DMS on Dec 29, 30 & 31. And as we all know that is what happened.


1a. Indeed this court drama started in one court, went to another court, and then returned back to the original court. During the December month itself of 2011, B group approached the District Administrative Court of Purulia, then Ranchi made a plea with the High court of Kolkata and finally the case was referred back to the District Administrative Court of Purulia. This was the see-saw battle going on in the courts during the month of December 2011. Ultimately B group got what they wanted, yet through it all the mass of margii were confused and in the dark over who was controlling what at Ananda Nagar and why.


2. Prior to Dec 2011/12, the Tiljala Administration was generally holding their winter DMS in January. But they repeatedly complained that if they could hold DMS in late December then their attendance would be stellar.

3. So little by little B group made plans and appealed to gain access of the Ananda Nagar pandal for December.

4. Needless to say, the Ranchi side was not happy about this. For years they were the ones who held their winter DMS on Dec 30, 31 & Jan 1. But this winter they lost those dates and were forced to hold their DMS in January. And that is what they did.

5. Clearly then there were two DMS, no one can conclude that a single DMS was held. Furthermore, who can deny that the events leading up to DMS and DMS itself was pur chaos. And more proof is given below.


6. The question is why this all this occur? And the reason is quite clear. Far more margiis attend Ranchi DMS programs than the Kolkata DMS programs. Year after year that has been the case. So Kolkata group planned that if they could somehow snatch away the Ranchi DMS dates – late in the year after margiis had already made their travel plans – then they (Kolkata) would be able to steer those margiis to their own DMS. That was their only and entire motivation.

7. More of this history is as follows. B group used to justify and complain that their winter DMS was exponentially smaller than the Ranchi DMS because Ranchi had their December dates into the new year. B group put forth the claim that if they had those dates than people naturally would appreciate and attend their DMS.

But, what they failed to examine was why the attendance at the Ranchi summer DMS far more than the B group summer DMS. After all, during summer the dates are not fixed – rather they are always changing. Yet in this program too, Tiljala camp had far less people at their DMS. This itself proves that dates alone do not determine the attendance at DMS. So B group’s logic the dates were the main issue for their small winter DMS attendance does not hold water.

The truth is that mass of margiis of Delhi sector prefer the Ranchi group and their DMS program. People basically think that Ranchi is the main structure or the original organisation. Ranchi – not Kolkata – is viewed as the legal administration by the courts and govt. How far this last statement is logical or really true in this present condition is debatable. But what is clear is that Ranchi has consistently drawn higher numbers.


8. By changing the dates for this recent DMS, the Kolkata camp had everything to gain, and virtually nothing to lose. Because in years past their typical numbers at DMS were paltry. They could not do any worse by changing the dates.

9. In stark contrast, the Ranchi side had everything to lose by this date change. They were consistently attracting large numbers to their DMS programs and people were habituated to arrive for their program on Dec 30. But now that date was no longer theirs. And indeed they lost big. That was the price they paid by not being more vigilant in handling this ordeal with the courts.

10. Ranchi’s only option then was to adopt more forceful policies. So to prevent the loss of all their regular attendees, they tried hard to keep maximum margiis in the Prout Bhavan and the Kiirtan Mandap, since B group had rights to the Pandal on Dec 30 & 31. So Ranchi was busy in damage control, i.e. trying to lose the least number of margiis.

11. In stark contrast, B group had the pandal and was doing everything possible to increase their numbers and take full advantage of the situation. Since the mass of margiis sleep in the pandal, it was very convenient for those margiis to remain there for DMS. Secondly, B group discarded the system of needing a gate pass to attend. By this way they thought that the maximum people would come in their contact and they could take measures to keep them in their group camp.


12. This then is a snap-shot of the scene and anyone with a balanced mind will easily conclude that there were 2 DMS programs, not 1. All will understand that this DMS was a mess where unity was nowhere in sight.

After all unity does not come by collecting people in one state, one region or even one place. The 20 or 30 people at a bus stand also do not constitute unity, nor does a movie theatre filled with 500 or 700 attendees. In such cases, every person is there with their own plan and their own program. As we know unity stems from within, following the same spiritual goal and working in coordinated fashion to manifest Baba’s teachings on this earth.

Baba says, “Human unity is purely an ideological unity, which means unity in the psychic sphere. Where there is psychic unity, physical unity will also occur. In the realm of unity, unity is always psychic – ideological unity means unity in the subtlest level of the mind. However, psychic or ideological unity may be affected if we encourage the exploitation of one group by another.” (PNS-15, Talks on Prout)


In review here are some of the key points to know about the recent DMS scene at Ananda Nagar.

* On January 1, 2012, each of the three rival groups held their own separate Ananda Vanii readings. They each selected their own chosen Vanii and met with their own followers in separate locations. Does this look like the atmosphere of one DMS? Does this not seem like a mess.

* To deter people from attending the B group DMS, H group made it clear that B group attendeess would not be welcome at their January 1-3, 2012 program.

* During December 30/31, H group was vigilant in keeping margiis in their own campus under their own watch and care. They were busy keeping the margiis at the Prout bhavan and kiirttan mandap. Plus they were doing collective programs like bhajan, kiirttan, and organisational meetings wherever their group had control in the jagrti, or Ba’ba’ quarter etc.

* Kinshuk’s formal DMS speech and the Ranchi group kiirtan were going on simultaneously. With full exuberance Ranchi group used firecrackers and noise-makers to start their kiirtan. Those in the pandal at the B group DMS reported that it was thereby difficult to hear Kinshuk’s speech.

* B group’s entire aim by getting the December DMS dates was to get more attendees by encroaching on Ranchi’s regular DMS dates.

* Ranchi knew they were in danger of losing masses of people to the B group DMS so they employed various techniques of damage control. They engaged margiis in their own areas during the B group DMS and the set down the law then those attending B group DMS would not be allowed to enter the Ranchi DMS.


Instead of resorting to trickery, guile and deceit to maximize their DMS attendance. We should all allow margiis due freedom to attend the program they prefer.

This year people not aware about what was going on until they reached there and even then they have little ability to change or do anything since their travel plans and lodging were set.

Thus we will have to wait until next year to determine the situation. If really all margiis reach on 30 Dec for DMS and then remain for Dec 31 and Jan 1 and then leave, then we say it is one DMS. But if other DMS type programs are going on before or after that, then who can think there is unity.

The mess at the January 2012 DMS proves that it was not one. It may have looked like one for those with vision problems. Such people may also conluded that the khumbha mela is also one, when in fact it is divided up by countless priests.

Those thinking groupism is vanishing away are not aware of reality, rather at this DMS it was very poisonous. In India, they used to forcibly marry boys and girls, and that created lifelong problems for that married couple. We should not replicate such a thing in our Marga. AM cannot become united by the force of the courts. As humans we have a mind and a heat and must study Baba’s teachings and unify around His ideology.



“Marmaviin’a’y eki sur a’chi ba’je diva’nishi mor virahii hiya’r ma’jhe…” (P.S. 480)


Baba, day and night, in the viina of my heart, only one tune is resonating in my melancholic heart. O’ my dearmost Baba please come. In the deep core of my mind only one tune is swinging: O’ Baba, You are not far away, You are not far, You are so close, You are with me.

Baba, when I see You in my karmayajina*, then I see You are remaining there also. Baba, You are with me in all the works. O’ Baba, please come, O’ Baba please come.

With the full longing of my heart, in whichever direction I look, there is nothing else that I can see except for Your divine form. O’ my Lord of Formlessness, with the resonance of the ever-new song, dance, & form, please allow Yourself to be held in my heart.

O’ Baba, please come, O’ Baba please come…

*Karmayajina: The work done with cosmic ideation is known as karmayajina; that alone is proper action. Thus karmayajina is any action or service done with the sole motive to please Parama Purus’a. In contrast those things done devoid of cosmic feeling, such selfish activities are called kriya’– and that leads to bondage. So only those works done with spiritual ideation come within the scope of karmayajina.

We Should Take Lesson

Baba says, “If one stays away from objects of attraction, one has no chance of using them and they may thus gradually lose their attraction; while if one is near them one may be attracted towards them more.” (AMEP, 98 Edn, p.126)

Note: Reading negative articles, crude books & literature, filthy magazines, and watching crude movies invites degeneration.

Subject: Read News: Which Group Is Best?
Date: Sun, 07 Aug 2011 22:56:36 +0530



~ Part 1 ~

Note: This is the first letter in an on-going series. Please watch for the next installment soon. You are also welcome to write us with more news should you be aware about these events or related situations.

As Ananda Margiis, our aim is to follow Baba’s divine guidelines and spread His teachings all around. Thus each and every one of us must become a veritable medium of Ananda Marga ideology. Our conduct must reflect His teachings.

Nowadays, there are three main groups that comprise the current landscape of our Marga. Let’s take a peek into the inner workings of these groups to see what makes them tick.

Then we can decide for ourselves how far they represent the ideals of AM – i.e. which one is best.


There is a distinct “working style” within the ranks of the Ranchi faction these days. So long as you tow the party line, you are fine, i.e. free to do as you please. However, if you fail to tow the party line, then regardless of how sterling your conduct is, you will be in trouble.

This may sound strange or odd to some, but for our many sincere Wt brothers and sisters who live inside the Ranchi tent, this is their harsh reality – day in, day out. For them this is not a joke, but a major aspect of their existence.

While there are many critical stories and news to share, the following account seems to be the most urgent. It is going on as we speak and we should be ready to take a stand.


Everyone knows that Didi Ananda Kalyanmaya – a junior Didi in our Marga – has been quite sincere and ideal in her ways since becoming a wholetimer. Here is Didi’s story and what she is facing these days.

Early on and up till quite recently, Ananda Kalyanmaya was quite close with Hariisha’nanda Dada. They were both from the same village in Madhya Pradesh and Didi looked upon Dadaji as her esteemed elder brother. After all, Hariisha’nanda entered wholetimer life back in the 1980’s.

So Didi held him in high regard and sought out his counsel and advice on many issues. She genuinely felt that he was her well-wisher and a trusted guide. Dada always seemed to act very kindly towards her. Naturally, Didi thought that Dada was a saintly person.

Unfortunately, the way Didi was thinking of Dada was not the way Dada actually was.

On one particular occasion, Hariisha’nanda expressed his inner intentions toward Didi and she become totally overwhelmed and shocked. Here she was thinking that Dadaji is a great sadhaka of the Marga and a trusted advisor, and now this very same Hariisha’nanda is openly expressing his crude desires towards her. After hearing this, Didi Ananda Kalyanmaya left the place immediately with her honour in tact.

But that was not the end of it.

Hariisha’nanda was furious and thought to save his own prestige and take revenge. Dada immediately began undermining Didi’s life and reputation at every opportunity. He started spreading false and filthy rumours about her character – claiming her as a prostitute.

(Please excuse me for using this word in reference to our kind-hearted and sincere Didi. My only reason for using that “p” term is to demonstrate the extent of Dada’s negative and mean-minded dealings.)

In this way Hariishananda was psychically torturing and verbally accosting Didi.

Even then it did not stop there. All know well that Hariisha’nanda is the #3 man in the chain of command on the Ranchi side. There is Rudrananda, then Madhuvratananda, and then Hariishananda. So he has a lot of power and pull.

Soon after, Hariisha’nanda & Ranchi COS (Citsvarupananda) called Ananda Kalyanmaya and gave her an order which was clearly against our organisational system. In essence, these two Dadas were setting Didi in one trap. She rightly refused the order.

Then the entire Ranchi brass (i.e. all top Dadas including Rudrananda) took their revenge. Eight months earlier Rudrananda had considered Ananda Kalyanmaya a trusted and loyal servant as she was close with Hariishananda etc. So Rudrananda had rewarded her with the posting of LFT Trainer in NY sector at the center in Monterrey, Mexico. Rudrananda was thinking that it would be good for him to have her there in NY, as she would support him. So for months, COS Dada had been working diligently in getting Didi the requisite papers to go to NY.

In an instant all those grand plans went up in smoke. The moment Didi refused their anti-ideological order, these three Dadas systematically tore down every convention in Didi’s life. Indeed, COS changed the posting order without even telling or consulting the Ranchi PP / President, Ac Vishvadevananda. They were purposely keeping Didi in India where they could essentially annihilate her and make her life miserable. How dare she stand up to their corrupt orders.

And that is where things stand today.

As we speak, our dear Didi Ananda Kalayanmaya is still facing the ugly wrath of these Dadas. They are literally out to destroy and break her. That is the notorious agenda of these Ranchi camp Dadas. With their arrogance and selfishness they want to ruin the life of one of our very sincere and junior avadhutikas. Such is their modus operendi. This is how they behave.


Before writing anything further and describing how EC and B group run their camps, we should all realise that it is our bounden duty to save the prestige and life of Didi Ananda Kalyanmaya. Sitting quietly when such a grave injustice is going on against this innocent Didi is veritably pratyavaya (sin of omission). So we should take the matter seriously and come to Didi’s side and support her. There is no other way.


Now that you have heard about Ranchi, we should take a look at EC. Actually it is well understood that EC has very little structure and hence very little discipline. Being in EC is like being on a permanent vacation, or thereabouts.

Here again while there are numerous tales from the EC side that need to be told, let’s here consider the story and news of Didi Ananda Krsnapriya (RSL / DSL, Portland, Oregon, USA). Didiji recenty proclaimed that she could never support Ranchi because Ranchi does not follow Baba’s system and protocol.

Hearing this, we might all conclude that this must be a very dharmic Didi. Well, let’s take a closer look.

Didi Ananda Krsnapriya actually has a long history of misconduct herself. She was the Didi who first became romantically involved with Dada Anandeshvarananda before he ultimately left the organisation. Then this same Didi Ananda Krsnapriya got physically involved with VSS Dada Vichitrananda. To be with him, Didi would regularly blow off her TP (tour program) and follow her own whim and fancy just to be with Dada. Plus there are “others” in her life.

But now look what injustice Didi Ananda Krsnapriya is involved in and see how the EC leaders are doing nothing about it. Not only does Didi like to be romantically involved, but she has taken to match-making other Didis with Dadas. Is that not shameful?

Our workers have come and pledged themselves to a high idea and Didi Ananda Krsnapriya is pushing them into the mud.

One of her prized match-making feats was setting up Didi Ananda Atandra with Dada Kamalkrsnananda. Not only did they mate, but in 2006 these two Wts married each other. All thanks goes to Didi Ananda Krsnapriya.

But even then that is not all.

Ex-Didi Ananda Atandra refused to return to Delhi sector (she is originally from Mumbai) after leaving her Wt ship and marrying Dada. So then what is Ex-Didi Ananda Atandra doing for income? Well, she is working at the New Day School in Portland, OR as part of the administrative team. Is that not outrageous. And not only that, she was hired by Didi Ananda Krsnapriya.

So here we have a double faux pas:
(1) An ex-Didi remaining in the sector where she was previously posted; and,
(2) having that ex-Didi working in one of our AM schools.

Baba never, never appreciated such things. Yet now it is happening right under the nose of EC and they have given their blessing.

In case you were wondering, Ananda Atandra’s offiicial tite at the New Day School is: Board of Directors, Program Direct, Accounts. Not a bad title for an ex-Didi. Indeed you can see her profile and photo on the New Day School website

And camp EC has given their approval, otherwise they would have forced her to leave by now. Keeping all this in mind, you can estimate the standing of this EC group.


Now we come to the final news for you to consider – then you can decide for yourself which group is truly best.

For years and years there was a senior Dada in and around NY sector named Dada Sarvabodhananda. Early on Dada had quite a sterling reputation even though his conduct was otherwise. Unfortunately he had a penchant for sisters – lots of them.

And for some time this happened without much notice from others.

But then Dadaji really stepped in the bucket. Just a few years ago he engaged in sexual relations with the daughter of a very well respected margii family. And what a scandal it became – most everyone heard about it. The bravery of the margii daughter was unprecedented and she stood tall, refusing to become yet another voiceless victim of Sarvabodhananda’s deceitful dealings. So the thing erupted into a major public scandal.

(Note: To maintain the honour and respect of the girl (she was 20 years old at the time), it is essential not to mention her name, nor her place, nor her parents’ names.)

In the wake of all this, Centre called Sarvabodhananda for punishment and re-training.

Seeing this, B group then jumped in and caught their prey. They told Sarvabodhananda that if he joined B group then he need not go through the humiliation of re-training. He could simply join the ranks and get a post. Because B group is not interested in the moral character of a worker, their only thought is that they should become more powerful by having more and more Wts.

Hearing this offer, Sarvabodhananda did indeed join B group. It was his ticket to freedom and respect without ever having to atone for his sin.

So that is B group’s normal way of operating. They have a long history of taking fallen workers and alluring them with a good post. By this way they increase the number of their cadre. And that is their only concern.

Let us also remember that this is the same group that has done untold damage to Baba’s discourses and books. This group has single-handedly ruined Baba’s scripture by their wrong style of translation and declaring that all discourses must be translated from the “original” Bangla. So this is yet another wrong we have to clean up.

And then of course there is the fact that B group also introduced their dogmatic tomb workship in Tiljala. Plus they invented Fake Ananda Vaniis and curtailed BP rights.

All of that adds up. So one has to think: Is this the best group? If not then, which one?


While everyone is free to choose for themselves which group they think is best – the facts remain for all to see.

And, side by side, we should all be vigilant to step forward and save our dear Didi Ananda Kalyanmaya from ongoing psychic torture and suffering. Her situation is quite dire and we should not sit still. We must not allow Hariishananda and Co to exert their will and continue to ruin her. That is 100% injustice.

So once again all can decide freely which group is best, but we are all bound to act on behalf of Ananda Kalyanmaya. It is my duty and your duty to do so.

Baba says, “I have said many times in the past that no one in this world is to be neglected. But while doing something activated by group interest, if some people are neglected or their development is obstructed, should this be tolerated? No.” (Prout Nutshell – 12, Service Psychology and Group Psychology)


By Baba’s grace, when our acarya cadre and leaders come clean and follow His divine guidelines, then groupism will be a thing of the past in our Marga. Then we will not have to sit around and decide which group is the best. Then our Marga will be one perfect, monolithic structure where our leaders stick to dharma every step of the way.

Till then, please do write us and let us know your thoughts.

Let us all consider Baba’s below teaching.

Baba says, “True leaders should always be vigilant and think how to work best for human society: they must be ever cautious that under their guidance the people are not led to darkness, death and immorality. Those who have the responsibility to show the path to others should be of superlative character with the most refined conduct. They and their followers must move constantly towards all-round development and shreya [ultimate spiritual attainment]. Persons who teach such well-regulated behaviour to others by their own conduct are called ácáryas.” (Ananda Vacanamrtam – 31, The Conduct of an Ácárya)



“Toma’y bha’lobese chinu kono atiite neiko mane…” (P.S. #1359)


Baba, it’s not in my mind when I became close to You. When we became bound in the tie of love. In which hoary past this started, it is unknown for me. Since then, by Your grace You have colored my mind with Your tune and melody. In the secret core of my heart, my love for You is growing.
Since then, everything in my life has become colorful and charming. The evening is as magical and captivating as the brilliant crimson dawn. And similarly, the scorching heat of the midday sun is equally charming. Because everything is Your expression, Your gift, Your grace. When my mind is in the bond of love with You, then good or bad everything becomes beautiful.
All the seasons are equally charming and blissful. The coldness of winter is glorious just as the sweet fragrance of the spring. And likewise, the rainy season brings various types of niip flowers which spread their pollen with sweet and intoxicating fragrance. And birds chirp in joy and dance.
Baba, all Your expressions are attracting, charming, and blissful. Because everywhere is Your eternal presence. And everything is Your expression of love. Baba, Your everything is unparalleled…

Divine Guideline in Dhyana Process

Baba says, “In the fourth phase the relationship is just like a piece of paper; the unit consciousness of the spiritual aspirant is one side of the paper and the Cosmic Consciousness of Parama Purus’a is the other side of the paper; they are inseparable, one cannot be removed from the other. By His effulgence the unit existence, the existential faculty of the aspirant gets lighted, gets illumined. With His illumination the aspirant is to move forward and enjoy the Supreme Beatitude and the Supreme Composure.” (SS-18, p. 13)

Note: Here above Baba is indirectly guiding about the last part of the practice of dhyana– which every sincere sadhaka practices regularly.

Subject: Bangalisation of Prout Books


Baba has given this following song to warn those who are demons in human form, who by their nefarious work are destroying the peace by spreading poison and bringing disaster.

“Manus’ manus’ ha’ra’ye hunsha kotha’y calecho tumi.
A’ka’sh ba’ta’s bis’iye diye narak kare marttyabhu’mi…” (PS 1190)


Why have you lost your rational sense and started moving on the path of annihilation and ruination. You made this golden earth poisonous with the domination of your disastrous theories, i.e. the dogma of groupism etc. You threw away the high ideals of spirituality and you forgot the eternal truth that whatever strength you are getting, that is coming from Him…Parama Purusa…Baba… He is the source. So you lost the sense and you do not like to understand that, to pulverize your ego, the trident of Parama Purusa is active…


Note: This letter details the wrongs done to our Prout publications including Prout Nutshell part 19, Prout Nutshell part 20, and Proutist Economics. In addition, this letter examines how one group – in particular – has committed permanent wrongs to Baba’s divine teachings, mostly done to highlight their own samaj. Please read the following and keep for your future reference. Only through our collective efforts, along with Baba’s grace, will we be able to set everything right.

Ours is a universal society aimed at projecting Baba’s ideals to one and all. So we have to be vigilant when any impediment within the Marga crops up and steers things in a different direction. Please read the following and together we can decide what should be done.


Here is the situation: One group has altered and distorted Baba’s Prout books in order to highlight their own samaj. Let me explain further.

Specifically, two editions of the “Prout in a Nutshell” series, i.e. parts 19 & 20, were intentionally dyed in the colour of Bangalisation – i.e. extreme preference towards the A’mara’ Bengali samaja at the expense of Baba’s entire samaj theory.

In these two books (PNS 19 & 20) there are 13 full discourses dedicated to Bengal – and hardly a mention of any other samaj. This gives the false impression that the A’mara’ Bengali samaj is the only samaj on the planet, or that Baba only gives importance to this samaj. But this is not the case at all. At present, there are 241 samajas around the globe and Baba in His own unique way gives equal importance to them all.

But after 1990, led by the heavy hand of Sarvatmananda, one group blatantly stuffed the pages of our Prout books exclusively with discourses on Bengal while discarding other samajas entirely. Indeed in Prout in a Nutshell parts 19 & 20, there are 17 discourses in total. And of those 17 discourses, 15 of those discourses address a particular samaj. And of those 15 samaj discourses, 13 of those those discourses are exclusively about Bengal. That means 87% of the samaj discourses in those two books are about A’mara’ Bengali samaj. And interestingly enough, both Prout Nutshell 19 & 20 were printed just after 1990 when Sarvatmananda had full power.

So it is clear that with a partial hand someone’s intention was only to highlight the Bangalistan area at the cost of other places. This is the wrong someone did to Baba’s Prout Nutshell series, parts 19 & 20.


To make things look “natural”, those at the helm those days included one samaj discourse on Bihar and one on Ireland. After all it would look too obvious if 15 out of 15 samaj discourses in those books were on Bengal. So they did included two other samaj discourses to make things look legitimate. Plus, Prout Nutshell part 21 contains no samaj discourses. And indeed this is the common tendency. When you want to distort something, then hide the fake or foul things in the middle, not at the end. Sarvatmananda understood this theory well. With the few Prout books first published after 1990, he followed this theorem exactly.

But we are not befooled by his “decoy”.

Because we know that Baba delivered hundreds of discourses on so many samajas. Baba always expressed maximum interest in every samaj. But this fact Sarvatmananda did not wish to recognise. So he personally gave the order to fill PNS-19 and PNS-20 with discourses on Bengal. And all other samaj discourses were left out of those Prout publications.

In fact, one other decoy maneuver he did was print Baba’s numerous discourses about other samajas of India in the name of Raghunathji. This was another trick used by Sarvatmananda to give less priority to other samajas and highlight on Bengal. After all if you make it look like Baba the Sadguru only spoke about Bengal – and ignored all other samajas – then Bengal stands in the spotlight all by itself.

Note: A reference to the “Raghunath Book” – which is really Baba’s book – is listed in a note at the bottom of this letter.

Here the whole idea is that one group leader wanted to make it look like Baba gave utmost importance to Bengal, as if Bengal is the topmost and all others are second rate.


Yet we all know, the spirit of Baba’s teachings and Baba’s practical approach is completely universal in all respects.

Whatever samajas Baba visited and even those places He did not physically attend to, always Baba recognised the value of and encouraged the development of all samajas. Toward this end He regularly gave dictations about the plans and programs to execute in the various samajas of the world. And Proutists from all over the globe personally noted down and received these guidelines directly from Baba Himself. Indeed Baba gave tremendous import to all samajas.

Those aware know that Baba’s Proutistic teachings are related with so many aspects of the development of the numerous samajas of this earth. He addressed topics such as agriculture, industry, irrigation, trade, culture, history, dance, archeology, music and so much more. Baba spoke in great detail about a wide and diverse collection of samajas. He personally designated large amounts of time for this.

Tragically, one group made sure that Baba’s important guidelines about other samajas did not get place in the Prout Nutshell series. They made sure that only the Bengali samaj was given the spotlight in the Prout books.

Because as well all know, the first edition of Prout Nutshell parts 19 and 20 were printed after 1990. Thus those group leaders at the helm selectively chose – according to their own agenda – which discourses to place in those Prout books. It was a case of clear-cut manipulation. The proof being that there are 241 samajas on this earth. Baba gave equal importance to all. Yet 87% (13 of 15) of the samaj discourses in PNS 19 & 20 deal with only 1 single samaj: A’mara’ Bengali.

This was done in such a way that in the future if anyone reads Prout, then they will conclude that Baba only cared about Bengal.


Some may raise the point that if this is so important why did no one oppose this wrong earlier. Here we have to remember that immediately after 1990, Sarvatmananda’s reign was in full storm. He was raging battles in all kinds of directions and ruling with an iron fist. It was the reign of terror. Anyone who opposed any wrongdoing was humiliated, exiled, victimised, and ultimately eliminated. Plus there were so many injustices being carried out, that people were just trying to survive. As bad as things are now, those days it was 1000 times worse. There was one totalitarian leader ruling the Marga and he had his Wt gangs to support him. In that case no field worker or margii dared oppose any wrongdoing.


In this harsh atmosphere, along with B group’s deep seated desire to impose their Bengali Raj, they made sure that only Baba’s teachings related with Bengali areas got the upper hand. Only their own samaj discourses were highlighted in the Prout Nutshell books. And Baba’s talks about other samajas did not get the place– they were neglected and rejected outright.


Because if you look at the Prout 19 and 20 then you will find 13 separate discourses / chapters which are exclusively related with the Bengali samaj. While Baba’s divine discourses about the samajas of South India, North India, and Western India – not to mention all the other parts of the globe – were essentially discarded from these Prout books.

But Baba has given similar guidelines to all those samaj leaders from other parts of the globe. Indeed Baba used to call them from far just to give special guidance about their samaj. Yet due to B group’s interference, only the Bengali samaj plans, programs, and guidelines given by Baba have been published in Prout 19 and 20.

Why were Mara’thi samaj, Tamil samajam, Kannada samajam, Chhattisgarhii samaj, Dogari samaj, Nagpuria samaj, Maharlika samaj, Mauri samaj, and all those several dozens of samajas discarded from the Prout books? I think now the answer is becoming clear. Why were 87% (13 of 15) of the samaj discourses in Prout Nutshell 19 & 20 only about Bengal? I think now the answer is becoming clear.

Everyone knows that Baba’s guidelines for these aforesaid samajas were given, but they were never allowed to have a place in the Prout books. Only Bangalistan got the place.

The reason being that those days in 1991-92, B group was controlling everything and they wanted to create an inferiority complex in the minds of margii members of other samajas. By this way they could keep ruling and put their samaj on top. So they deftly created the false impression that Baba has given special preference to Bengalistan by only including the Bangal samaj discourses in the Prout series. Sarvatmananda thought by this way he could best continue his group supremacy.

But the fact is that Baba guided equally to all the samajas.

Clearly then this is one type of deliberate distortion to Baba’s Prout teachings. It is nothing but a black stain that only discourses related with the area and planning of Bengal were placed in Prout 19 & 20.

Till today B group does not have an iota of repentance for what they have done. They distorted the Bhukti Pradhan manual, wiped out margii rights, ruined the ACB system, invented expulsion as a weapon, gave birth to Fake Ananda Vaniis, implemented mahaprayan dogma, created religious tiirthas (holy land dogma) and so much more.

And they have imposed their dogmatic vision of Bangalisation unto Baba’s Prout books. But even then that is not the totality of their ill deeds.


Here is another pertinent example how B group has altered Baba’s books and manipulated His discourses on samaj.

A case in point: In the Proutist Economics book a total of 104 pages got dedicated for the Bengali samaj, and only 18 pages were allotted for all the five (5) samajas of Bihar. And Baba’s talks on innumerable other samajas were discarded entirely. By this manipulation, so many of Baba’s teachings related with the development of samaj did not get place in Prout.

Thus the distortion done to Proutist Economics is a carbon copy of the distortion done to Prout in a Nutshell parts 19 & 20.

Here the point is that wherever they got the chance to distort Baba’s Prout teachings in the favor of their Bangalisation dogma, they seized the opportunity. In particular, those Prout books first printed after 1990 were wickedly distorted.


All this gives proof that since long B group has been strategizing and executing their plans of group dominance wherever and whenever they got the opportunity. Theirs is a long term plan not only to rule the Marga but to permanently scar and litter Baba’s divine teachings with their various dogmas like Bangalisation and related distortions.

Indeed their plan was so deep-rooted that even after their fall from power, many of their distortions and dogmas still stand: Destruction of BP Manual, Bangalisation of Baba’s Discourses, Fake Ananda Vaniis, Expulsion as a weapon, Mahaprayan dogma etc. The list is quite long.

In contrast, the other groups just wanted power – and that washes away relatively easily. When those group leaders reform themselves or pass on, then their lust for power is gone from this earth.

But from day 1 this has not been the case with those Bengali leaders. From the outset they had a deep-seated plan to permanently infuse all kinds of dogmas into AM society and Baba’s books. They actually wanted to change Baba’s teachings – permanently. As bad as the other groups are – no other group did like this.

Indeed it was only B group that brought this whole other agenda to the table. Only they planned on permanently deleting, manipulating, and distorting Baba’s divine AM ideology. What dogmas they implemented in a few short years of their reign may take generations to remove. This is a big, big problem. No other faction did like this. Only B group led by Sarvatmananda imposed such dogmas and distortions.

Still today we are dealing with the mess they created – and tomorrow we will be as well. Because with a few short brush strokes Sarvatmananda and Co permanently changed so many of Baba’s divine teachings:

1. Fake Ananda Vaniis, 2. Fake BP Manual, 3. Dogma of Mahaprayan insertion into appendix of Caryacarya, 4. “Translated from Original Bengali” into countless books, 5. Expulsion as a weapon, 6. Ruination of Prabhat Samgiita via filmy cassettes, 7. Tiljala as a Tiirtha site, 8. Destruction of the ACB system, 9. Wrong system of translation, 10, Bangalisation, 11. Elimination of Margii rights and so many more systematic and permanent wrongs.

This is the great gift that B group has bestowed on our AM society: The gift of dogma and ruination of Baba’s teachings.


Baba is the Supreme Neo-Humanist who guides and loves all samajas. It is unthinkable to believe that Baba only likes one samaj. But that is what B group wants the world to believe.

So the main idea we must convey is that all Baba’s Prout books should reflect His universal love for all peoples in all places and all samajas. To promote the dogma that He was partial to Bengal is to undermine Guru’s standing.

Together, with a rational mind, we must decide how Baba’s Prout books should be reformulated. It cannot be that PNS 19 & 20 contain 13 discourses on Bengal. Nor do I suggest that all the A’mara’ Bengali discourses be removed and replaced by discourses on other samajas.

As His disciples we must find the right balance and method for printing Baba’s Prout discourses to ensure that they reflect the spirit and totality of His universal teachings for humanity. And all those devoted margiis who took notes from Baba’s various samaj meetings must come forward with those writings. Already many samaj leaders are involved in this great work and more should participate. This is the way to safeguard Baba’s teachings and demonstrate that He has given discourses and guidelines on all the samajas.


At the cost of the sanctity of Baba’s treatises on Prout and the welfare of our Marga the crimes committed by B group must not be allowed to continue. The day has come for all margiis to come forward waving the banner of neo-humanism, doing away with narrow-minded, groupist traditions.

Baba says, “You must awaken those who do not realise the facts, and make them aware. Let the ideals of neo-humanism reach their ears, and be implanted in the core of their hearts. With their liberated intellects they will throw all their illusions into the dustbin.” (NH-LOI)



These are the thirteen (13) discourses in Prout Nutshell 19 & 20:

Prout Nutshell 19
East Wet Theory
Economic Exploitation of Bengal
Talks on Bengal – Section A
Talks on Bengal – Section B
Talks on Bengal – Section C
Talks on Bengal – Section D
Talks on Bengal – Section E

Prout Nutshell 20
Economic Self-Sufficiency for Bengal
Northeastern India
South Bengal
Contai Basin Planning

Anyone looking at these books will think that Baba only cared about Bengal or that Baba was just one limited social theorist. That is the main problem with what B group has done.

The reality of course is that Baba is Parama Purusa incarnate. He cares for and loves all equally. He has equal regard for every samaj. This spirit must be reflected in Baba’s Prout books. To highlight only one samaj is a grave injustice against Guru; it is a crime and a sin.

As His disciples we must ensure that Baba’s books fully reflect His teachings. So we have to sit collectively and think how our books on Prout should be formulated. Not all the Bengal discourses need be removed, nor do all the hundreds of other discourses about various other samajas be placed in the Prout Nutshell series. But whatever we choose to do, it must reflect Baba’s universal care for the entire humanity.

And side by side, naturally all of Baba’s samaj discourses and notes will have to be printed in some form. But the way things are right now is not at all good.



This letter details how they printed Baba’s discourses and talks in Raghunathji’s name because those discourses were about other samajas, not A’mara’ Bengali. To minimize the importance of those talks and the respective samajas, they put them in the name of a disciple. And when Baba spoke about Bengal then it was printed for all to see in Baba’s name.


Allopathic Medicines Not Good

Baba says, “When people take allopathic medicine to cure a disease, the medicine disturbs the ecological balance of the body because more negative microvita get concentrated at the point of the disease. Allopathic medicines do not kill diseases — diseases die by their own natural death. Although the medicine may check the disease, the increased concentration of negative microvita can overcome the effect of the medicine. In fact, the increased concentration of negative microvita caused by allopathic medicines creates many new types of diseases, and due to this, two or three new diseases are presently being created every decade. So what is the solution to this problem? Our approach should be two fold — external and internal. Externally we should take medicines to check diseases, but internally we should perform spiritual practice.” (MVNS, p.136)

Subject: News: Modern Sikhandi & Chaos in Group Fight

To: am-global@earthlink.net




In the short span of time since the “Tiljala unity council” (Mar 25 – 27), disarray has mounted in this newly constructed tent faction. All know that this “tent” was made by piecing together various factions.

Just as a tent can be sewn together using different colour pieces, likewise the new tent faction has been formed by gluing together different groups. Those groups maintain their own prior identity – they do not lose or forgo their individual existence like B and EC etc.

Here are some key points that all should know:

1. Giita Didi’s group has not joined this tent. They have been fence-sitters from the very beginning because they felt they could not trust this tent coalition.

2. The NY faction joined only superficially. They have no real commitment towards the Tiljala unity tent. The NY SS has no desire to surrender to B group, but he did accept the post of SS NY. But he has kept NY legally separate from India / Tiljala etc. He has not even the faintest desire to change and come under their leadership. NY is separate and remains as such.

3. The EC / Third Front faction of India is split:

(a) Parmeshvarananda has joined the Tiljala group but in return he only got scraps from underneath the dinner table to chew on, i.e. the post of HPMG. That is why even his supporters are dissatisfied that their boss did not get the respect they anticipated and hoped for.

(b) Vandanananda, Karunanada, & Vishodgatananda (& many others), on the other hand, have no intention of joining. Rather they are quite furious and do not like the Tiljala unity tent at all. So they did not join.

(c) The scene amongst most of the third front workers is that of dissent. They feel that the in-charges are treating them like step-children – i.e. unwanted and uncared for. Why? Because all key posts and top chairs were grabbed up by B group.

4. Many family margiis reached there with the high hope that they would get included in various committees and boards. They thought they would get due representation, but they were not included so they are very disappointed & frustrated. Their only utility in the eyes of Tiljala was as a “head count”, i.e. building up the numbers.


Now here is one thing that is very surprising, if not shocking. Many voices are now accusing Kinshukji of not even being a margii because for years and years no one saw him attending DC or DMS / seminar. Yet both of these programs are basic margii duties. For this reason they claim that he is not even a margii. Thus, because they claim he is not a basic margii, they feel it is unjust for him to have the top post.


Indeed, just by the mere distribution of posts – with B group getting the large majority of posts (i.e. 32 out of 46 Central posts including mostly all the top posts), then anyone can understand that Kinshuk is not really in-charge. And if he is in-charge then he is not just. That is why the former is correct, i.e. that he is not really in-charge someone else is pulling the strings from behind. You can gusess who.

So these are some of the the bulleted points to consider. The tent faction was born just a few weeks ago amidst the big hoopla of unity, and now it is shrouded in disarray.



Today, people are telling that Kinshuk is like Sikhandhi (ie the impotent “warrior” from the Mahabharata era).

As we all know, back in the day, Sikhandi was used so Bheeshma would not kill and attack the soldiers. Bheeshma was a man of principle and he would not fight a eunuch. Hence the Pandavas placed Sikhandi in the front in order to ward off any attack by Bheeshma.

Similarly, B group has put Kinshuk as their top man in order to deflect any possible attacks. Just as the Pandavas knew that Bheesma would not attack them if Sikhandi was at the front, B group knows that if they put Kinshuk at the front then they will not be attacked. They can sit behind and do what they wish.

Here it should be perfectly clear that the analogy is only about Kinshuk as Sikhandi. No one should foolishly try to equate B group as being the Pandavas – that would be utterly ridiculous.

Only the point is that just as Sikhandi was used by the Pandavas to protect the army, likewise, Kinshukji is being used by B group to protect their tent faction.

My only concern is that while in the past Sikhandi was not attacked, it worries me to think that Kinshukji, a.k.a modern day Sikhandi, may be attacked. Indeed he is already getting attacked as people are accusing him of not being a margii. That is my chief concern. Beyond that the analogy fits like a glove.

Nowadays, people have begun accusing Sikhandi (i.e. Kinshukji) of putting his signature on all the postings, but in truth that was not Sikhandi’s order. Sikhandi does not know all those Dadas etc. That was not his idea.

So Sikhandi is harmless in all of this. His post was used and he was but a rubber stamp for the B group agenda. So while Sikhandi may have signed those posting orders or given his approval, certainly that order was crafted by someone else. Sikhandi could never have done such a thing. Rather Sikhandi’s duty is simply to protect those hiding behind him, just like the Sikhandi of old was used to protect Arjuna and the Pandava army.

But again here the analogy begins and ends with Kinshuk as Sikhandi. No one should wrongly think that B group is the Pandavas. That would be totally silly.

Here Sikhandi does not mean that anyone is physically impotent. That is not the sense. Sikhandi is merely a shield for the protection of others.

Even then we all have to think & wonder how far it will be successful. Many are doubtful as already people have started abusing Sikhandi.

In spite of this, those who masterminded this present day episode of Sikhandi have an incredible brain. They must be given due credit.




“A’mi toma’r pathei cali go a’r tava sure ga’n ga’i…” (PS 1756)


O’ Baba, by Your grace I move only on Your path: I sing in Your tune and

dance to Your rhythm. My whole existence is moving in Your divine flow–

ensconced in Your sweet bliss. Baba, O’ my dearmost, You are the most

attractive One. I think and ideate only on You and I meditate only on Your

glory. Baba, 24hrs a day I am looking towards You; I want only You. Baba,

only You are my Goal; only You are my Desideratum. Baba, You are the

shining star of my life.

Baba, by Your grace we are so close. We are tied up in a bond of love.

Baba, You are the ray of hope & happiness in my life. Baba, I am like the

dark evening of the rainy season– my life is full of problems and

difficulties; and You are like the soft night-queen flower (rajaniigandha’

[1])– You are the Personification of all that is sweet. Baba, by Your

fragrant touch, my whole life becomes fragrant. Baba, by Your grace my life

is saturated with Your heavenly aroma– my existence is saturated with Your


Baba, I am jiiva and You are Shiva. I am wrought with imperfections and

defects and You are blemishless and pure. Baba, I am like the winter sky

that is enveloped by the fog. My life is filled with problems. Baba, You

are like the crimson effulgence of the morning’s new dawn. With the

brilliance of Your presence all my problems disappear. Baba, You bring

charm and bliss into my life. You make everything beautiful. Baba, without

You my life is meaningless– unbearable. Baba, by dyeing my mind in Your

color, my whole existence rushes towards Your divine land– towards You.

Baba, because of Your grace-compassion, I am marching only towards You.

Baba, You have done everything for me…


[1] Rajaniigandha’: (Night Queen Flower) This is one of the most fragrant

and aromatic flowers; it emanates a delicious, sweet smell all around for

miles and miles. The wonderful scent of the rajaniigandha’ makes any

environment charming. For this reason in the above song the sadhaka is

saying that Parama Purusa is like the rajaniigandha– because He emanates

unending sweetness all around. In contrast, the sadhaka compares himself to

the suffocating, humid evening in the rainy season. Because that humid

evening has so many negative characteristics such as heavy air and the

onslaught of buzzing mosquitoes and pestering insects. Thus the torturous

humid evening represents the sadhaka’s problem-filled life. But when the

sweet aroma rajaniigandha’ comes in contact with the sticky, humid evening,

then everything becomes sweet and charming. Then that humid evening gets

transformed into something wonderful. Similarly even though a sadhaka’s

life might be filled with countless problems and obstacles, but with the

divine arrival of Parama Purusa, everything becomes charming and blissful.

All of one’s problems immediately disappear– vanish, because of His sweet

presence. That is why in the above song the sadhaka compares Baba with the

rajaniigandha’ flower.


Not Easy To Bring Into Practice

Baba says, “While helping the poor people your vanity may increase. You

may think: ‘I have done this, I have done that. I am not an ordinary man.’

This is a psychic disease. Actually, vanity is a psychic disease, a psychic

ailment. But if, while helping a man, a poor man, or a diseased person, you

ascribe Godhood to him, that is, if you think, ‘I am not helping a man, I am

helping God in human structure,’ then vanity will not be encouraged. What

will be the reaction within the person? ‘This body, this mind, this wealth

has been given to me by Parama Purus’a, and Parama Purus’a has come before

me, God has come before me, as a suffering person, and I am paying back

that thing to Him. That is, the actual owner of this body, the actual

owner of this mind is He, and His wealth I am paying back to Him.’ So

there will be no vanity.” (DKG, p.197-98)

Note: Despite that fact that we are all aware about Baba’s above

teaching, nonetheless it is the common human weakness that we forget

about this point. Yet we all know His above guideline has great and

eternal benefits. For that reason we need to be reminded about this

divine guideline again and again. Adherence to this principle helps

establish one in the stance of divinity & immortality.

Subject: ‘I do not Belong to any Group’

To: am-global@earthlink.net

From: Satiish K Deva”






Part 1 of 4



Many Dadas openly declare, ‘I do not belong to any group’. This is not

an uncommon proclamation these days. And indeed, in most cases, such a

declaration is to be appreciated; since, as we all know, groupism is

negative to the very bone. Groupism has no redeeming quality or value–

none at all.


Thus when any Dada says, ‘I do not belong to any group’, then that is

essentially commendable. Their stand is a positive stand.


At the same time we should be aware of two common pitfalls that occur

with some of these Dadas. A few fall into the chasm of Rajput’s Folly

while some others get stuck in creating fake unity. So we should all be

able to easily recognise these two detrimental syndromes.





Some, though certainly not all, of those Dadas who declare, ‘I do not

belong to any group’, often find themselves in the unfortunate position

of Rajput’s Folly.


This happens because those simple Dadas valiantly state their position

without realising or understanding the power of those groupist forces.

Hence, in their nativity, those Dadas boldly state, ‘I am not part of

any group, I am against all factional parties, etc etc’, but such Dadas

are not aware about their own inherent vulnerability, and in the end

they succumb to those very groupist forces and factional pressures.


Hence, what Baba describes here as Rajput’s folly is the same type of

syndrome that affects some of our Dadas.


Baba says, “Weak people must assess their strength before indulging in

violent conflict with a powerful aggressor; otherwise, if a fight is

started without acquiring proper strength injustice may temporarily

triumph. In history such an error has been called “Rajput folly”. The

Rajputs always went forward with courage to resist Mughal invasion. No

doubt, they fought valiantly, but they faced the enemy without assessing

their own strength. They suffered from intrigues and internal

dissensions and hence they always lost battles and died a heroic death.

It is, therefore necessary to acquire adequate strength before declaring

a war against an aggressor.” (GHC)


Regarding AM and groupism, those Dadas who are not mentally strong or

who do not have sufficient allies should not openly wage a war against

groupism by publicly declaring, ‘I do not belong to any group’. Better

they should temporarily keep quiet and maintain a basic truce with those

groupist elements until they themselves have garnered adequate strength

to maintain their dharmic position.


Failing that, some Dadas– no need to mention names here– have bravely,

yet naively’ declared their position against groupism, only later to

find themselves cornered, and unwittingly or not, they end up becoming

the agents of one or another faction.


Tragically we have all seen such things occur to some Dadas who

previously stated, ‘I do not belong to any group’.





Then there is another ailment that affects a few of our Dadas who state,

‘I do not belong to any group’. They fall into the dogma of fake unity.


As we all know unity can only be created through following AM ideology.

That is the only way.


Baba says, “Human unity is purely an ideological unity.” (PNS-15)


But what some Dadas do is try to create unity by bringing together

various groupist elements. They think by tying H, B, EC, NIA etc into

one flower garland, then a wonderful unity will result. But that is

total nonsense. Because ideological unity can never result by blending

various dogmas together.


And here, in this below question and answer sequence, Baba describes

this point very clearly.


Baba says, “How far is the unification of all religions possible?”

“Ans.: – To seek infinite bliss is the only dharma of humanity. Humanity

has but one dharma. Thus, the question of the unification of religions

does not arise. The apparent dissimilarity between various religions

arising due to differences in their ritualistic practices is not a

spiritual difference. Whenever rituals dominate and efforts to attain

bliss are feeble, whatever that may be, it is not spirituality.” (TK-1,

‘Q & A #49’)


Thus, no matter how hard one tries to create unity by gluing together

various groupist factions, they can never be successful. Because just as

it is impossible to create dharma by merging the various dogmatic

religions, similarly it is impossible to create unity by sticking all

the groupist forces in one hall. That is one doomed proposition.


Unfortunately, on the email, a few Dadas write, ‘I do not belong to any

group’, and then side by side they begin describing how they are

creating unity in their area by bringing all the groupist parties

together under one roof. But this is not at all unity. In that case,

only those groups are vying for supremacy and scouting out the

opposition. Whereas unity can only result when all those party members

renounce groupism entirely. And that they are not going.


So the plan of bringing B, EC, H, and other factions together and

stating that unity has been achieved is just one fake show of unity–

nothing more. That is exactly what Baba has stated in the above teaching

when He says that the unity of the dogmatic religions is not at all






Mahatma Gandhi once declared, ‘I do not belong to any religion, I honor

all religions’, and in that way he created temples where all the

dogmatic religions could pray. But the result was not at all unity.

Rather more and more animosity was created as Muslim and Hindu tensions

escalated, as they were both encouraged to follow their dogmatic ways.

And in the end, Gandhi himself was gunned down by a radical Hindu. Thus

his faulty dream of unity just shattered and drowned in the spilling of

his own blood.


Similarly, those who declare, ‘I do not belong to any group, I honor all

the groups’, then their way is going to create trouble as they are

validating the existence of those very groups. If one invites various

groupist leaders to a conference or table talk– without first ensuring

that those elements have truly renounced groupism– they that conference

or that table talk will just validate the existence of those very

groups. In a phrase one is saying, ‘It is ok for you to be groupist’.

When in fact groupism is a disease and should never be tolerated or

honored, neither implicitly nor explicitly.


One other way of thinking about it is if one says, ‘I am a vegetarian,

but I honor and respect all meat-eaters and they are allowed to come and

cook in my kitchen’. In that case, who can think that that person is

keeping a vegetarian kitchen.


Likewise, those Dadas who say, ‘I am not groupist’, yet invite

recognised groupist elements into their meetings or living rooms, then

who can think that that person is really a proponent of unity. When

unity itself does not allow the existence of any group.





So these above are some of the recognised flaws and pitfalls of those

who declare, ‘I do not belong to any group’. Of course this is not the

case with all Dadas, but some. And we should all be aware so that we

also do not fall prey to any faulty plan that actually gives more power

to groupist elements.





We all want true unity in our Marga, and by His grace it is going to

happen soon. The more we strictly adhere to His ideological tenets, the

more we do not feed the fire of groupism, then the faster our march to

unity will reach its sacred home. Victory, victory to Ananda Marga.


Baba says, “To live in peace and harmony, there must be a supreme

ideology accepted by all, because whenever there are ideological

differences, physical conflicts between individuals and groups are bound

to occur, and peaceful social life becomes impossible.” (NSS, Disc: 2)









So we must be careful. Because in the name of unity, various factional

leaders may try so many ploys, or stunts, and in one way or another this

or that margii might get roped in– some might fall prey to those

groupist schemes of fake unity. That is why Baba says we must be wary of

such an unwanted scenario.


Baba says, “They will try to unite the people forcibly through the

pressure of governmental [or groupist] machinery….by the steamroller

of governmental [groupist] machinery, but such unity is not at all

desirable.” (TTP)


Thus one must never succumb or give way to groupist pressure thinking

that by this way unity will be found.





“A’jake sa’njhe madhur sa’jhe ke else go, ke ele…” (P.S. 5006)




In this sweet and intoxicated evening, Who has come, Who has come? Who

is that Entity Who has created this new wave in everyone’s life and in

everyone’s heart. Those who are sitting with their doors and windows

closed, please come out and forget about the differences of own and

other. That divine Entity Who is always sitting in the mind, He has come

in front of us. We should enjoy His august arrival all together…




Food Problems and Their Solution


Baba says, “In the event of shortages in the food and accommodation of

the population of the world, people will convert uncultivated land into

new arable land, increase the productivity of the soil by scientific

methods, produce food by chemical processes with earth, water and air,

and if this earth decreases in its productivity, then land seeking human

beings will migrate to different planets and satellites and settle

there.” (PNS-13, p.45)

“Eso tumi raune rupe a’ma’r maner an’u-a’nute…” – P.S. 2242




Baba, please come in my mind with form and color. Please come in each

and every iota of my mind. My whole life has passed in searching You from

country to another country. When I was looking to find You in far distant

places, then I did not get You anywhere. And when I searched You in the

external world nearby me, then also I did not get You. In fact, I did not

get You in any holy land or in the cave of the mountains. In search of You

in lonely places I cried in longing.

Baba, by Your grace when I look into my mind then I see that You are

there smiling on my mental lotus. You are in my mental pollen, in its

fragrance, and in its nectar. Sitting there You are smiling. Baba I did not

get You anywhere externally because You are always in my mind. When I try

to look within then by Your grace I feel that You are with me…








We all want unity within our Ananda Marga Pracaraka Samgha. The main question is which avenue will take us there. The events at the recent DMS and the NY winter retreat shed further light on this matter.


You may have heard that at the recent Ananda Marga New Year’s DMS in Ananda Nagar one group sat in protest. To some it may look like this group is quite noble: Engaging in a peaceful, silent protest outside the main gate of the DMS pandal with placards, banners, and pamphlets preaching unity.


But to really understand the situation, we have to see the big picture. We cannot just stare at one small piece of the puzzle.


Specifically, when EC was staging a peaceful protest for unity and declaring along with B group that Kinshuk Dada should be the next PP, then we have to see what other activities EC was involved in to evaluate how far they are sincere in their approach.


And indeed if we evaluate EC’s situation in NY sector, we get a grander view of the scene.


That same EC faction which was staging a protest at DMS in Ananda Nagar is the same EC group that controlled the winter retreat at Ananda Kanan (USA). At that gathering they deliberately barred other groups and their members – i.e. the Ranchi group NY SS et Co – from entering into NY sector sectorial retreat. EC veritably blocked that Dada from entering the retreat grounds. When that Dada arrived on site they forcefully told him that he was not welcome. This happened the same exact week that EC was staging their own protest for being disallowed to enter into the DMS pandal in Ananda Nagar.


Plus one other interesting thing to be aware of.


In NY this same EC group is fighting tooth and nail in a huge, unprecedented court case for control of the sector. And they are trying desperately to gather as much funds from margiis as they can in order to pay their attorneys and related legal fees. All done to snatch the power from the other group. These are the plain facts. All the groups are unceremoniously indulged in the fight for power – not true unity.





Groupism means harboring a narrow agenda for one’s own personal material gain, i.e. for their particular region, caste, community etc. This type of special self-interest is the defining point of being a group. Groupism has nothing to do with how big or small it is in number, i.e. size of their membership; it is only related with harboring a narrow mentality or group feeling. There may be 1 million people in a group, 100 people or 1 person. That is all meaningless. What makes a group a group is their narrow-minded interests.


In contrast, if a fight is going on for the cause of universal welfare, i.e. for everyone’s physical, psychic and spiritual development and one is battling against all sorts of exploitation, then irrespective of the number of people involved, it is not a group.


As long as Baba was controlling AMPS it was not a group. Certain non-margiis were labeling AMPS as a group but it was not a group. Those days AM was for universal emancipation, not any narrow agenda.


Today however the various factions are busy trying to grab the power and injecting dogmas like the supremacy of their language, land, community, or tiirtha. Or they just squabble over who can get more purodhaships in their camp etc. None of these “causes” are ideological. That is why the current group struggle is nothing but a factional feud.


All the groups in today’s Marga rally around their chosen dogmas and all the groups want to exploit margiis. That is why they never raise the slogan of margii rights or common issues (see note 1). When not in power they cry out about their own pathetic situation in front of margiis and exploit their sentiment; but when in power the situation is different. Then those groups rule with an iron fist.


Sane people understand this quite well.


If anyone is emotionally attached to certain friendships or a particular language or any other narrow cause, then they should not befool themselves into thinking that they are fighting for Ananda Marga ideology.


All in all, the entire present day group fight has nothing to do with AM ideology – rather it runs counter to our ideological standards.


If on this point you have any doubt please write me.





Here the point is that unity can never be based in groupist hypocrisy – nor the hypocrisy of H, B, or EC groups. All such factions have their self-interest in mind and when we see the big picture their true colours can easily be understood. Those who are victims in one sector are the power mongers in another. Such persons can never bring unity.


The only solution is unity based on ideology – not any group agenda. For more about this see note 1.


Thus when one group is preaching unity on one side of the planet and and carrying out factional feuds on the other side of the globe, even the simplest of observers can understand what is going on.


To solve this matter we have to uncover all shades of hypocrisy and rally around Ananda Marga ideology, not any group camp. So-called unity based on groupist sentiment is fragile and can explode at any moment whereas as real unity based on ideology is the true foundation of our AM and human society.


Baba says, “Human unity is purely an ideological unity, which means unity in the psychic sphere. Where there is psychic unity, physical unity will also occur. In the realm of unity, unity is always psychic – ideological unity means unity in the subtlest level of the mind. However, psychic or ideological unity may be affected if we encourage the exploitation of one group by another. So to avoid this there should not be any scope for exploitation in society. And to ensure this we have to start a new order to safeguard the interests of the exploited masses. So for a proper social synthesis what we require is a common philosophy of life; that is, ideological unity.” (Prout Nutshell, Part 15)


Baba says, “Lack of unity among the members of society, because of too much self-interest in the individual members, formation of sects for economic or social advantages, or lack of understanding of others, not only brings the downfall of society, but also will wipe it completely from the face of the earth. Instances of so many sects and empires disappearing altogether are not rare in the history of this world.” (“Tattvika Praveshika”)








The present group fight in our Marga is not an ideological fight. Here ideological means Baba’s divine teachings, not any group agenda. This fight is all about their own selfish group interest. Here following the is the logic and reasoning in support of this fact.


Since 1990, so many injustices have been done related with ideology, yet none of these following points are ever raised by these group leaders – i.e. H, B, or EC. Rather they are the perpetrators.


1. Destruction of BP rights and imposition of the Fake BP Manual;

2. Expulsion used as a weapon since 1995 when all groups qqq were together were living and unitedly ruling qqq

3. Countless intentional scriptural distortions such as placing “Translated from the original Bengali” on the cover page of all AM books, even if those discourses were given in English or Hindi;

4. Elimination of the margii based ACB system: Advisory Committees & Boards;

5. Curtailment of margii rights;

6. Creation of dogmatic pilgrimages in Ananda Nagar, Kolkata, & Jamalpur, and many other places;

7. Issuing of Fake Ananda Vaniis;

8. Victimisation of countless innocent Ananda Margiis;

9. Bangalisation of AM teachings;

10. Ruination of Prabhat Samgiita by using filmy singers etc;

11. Not recognising Silent Action as a fundamental right;

12. Rejecting English and Hindi passages spoken by Baba and only translating the Bengali portions of Baba’s holy DMC discourses which were given by Baba in three languages;

13. Treating Baba as a mortal being by using the shraddha mantra for Sadguru Baba and the imposition of dogmatic Mahaprayan;

14. Construction of dogmatic memorials to limit Baba to a particular land or place;

15. And so many more ideological wrongs.


Note: Please do write us if you wish more information on any of the above points.


Yet, no group ever raises any of these universal points related with AM teachings / ideology. They only raise their own selfish claims based on their group agenda for post and power.


So all this infighting is nothing but a factional power fight. In that case why should margiis quarrel, give their resources and time, and do & die in such a fight when it is all about selfishness and grabbing the post – and nothing else.


Regarding the above listed ideological points related with margii rights and scripture etc, neither the factions of Tiirthananda & EC, nor B faction, nor H (i.e. Ranchi faction) support these purely ideological issues. Never do they ever raise these items – they only raise points of personal lust for post and power.


Then why should any sincere devotee sacrifice themselves for this cause of infighting and group agenda. There is no ideology on either side. That is Baba’s teaching.


Baba says, “Many of the ills of society develop because people do not care to know other members of society. This may not only mean ignorance of the condition and difficulties of others, but also leads to intolerance and a lack of interest in the affairs of the other members of society. Common social functions bring different members of society together and are therefore a great unifying force. By performing certain functions collectively, all the members are engaged in doing the same thing for some time, and this brings about a feeling of unity and interest in others.” (Social Psychology, 1957, Jamalpur)











Baba says, “The Cosmic Operative Principle, whereby the Citishakti [Supreme

Cognitive Faculty] goes on transforming itself into Cosmic Ectoplasms and

those Cosmic Ectoplasms into the bhacakra [spatio-eternal system] without

undermining its own status, must necessarily imbibe the witness-ship of the

Sambharaka.” (HS, Edn ’99, p.148)


Note 1: To do proper translations of Baba’s original discourses the

translator must be aware of Baba’s own Grammar book series as well as His

small encyclopedia: Laghu Nirukta. Without these two necessary works, the

translation will be incomplete. And it may lack unclarity and create

confusion. The above example has happend like that.



Note 2: The term ‘bhacakra’ is not available in any published dictionary in

the general society. That is why the translator / editor could not properly

clarify this term. Instead he speculated about its meaning from his own

mind. The real meaning of the term bhacarka is given in Laghu Nirukta. That

is as follows:


“1. The sky and space which can be seen from one side of the earth

represents only half or a partial amount. To see the other half one has to

go to the other side of the earth. And when the entire thing is treated as

one, then that is bhacakra. Bhacakra is complete.”

“2. The next definition means the known and unknown created worlds– that

combined is bhacakra.”
