Subject: Mahaprayan (Death) of Shrii Aniruddha Prasad Singh



Sadly we have lost a dear soul. The mahaprayan of respected brother
Shrii Aniruddha Prasad Singh occurred during the night of 10-11
September 2009. It is with sadness and sweet memories that we
announce this mahaprayan.

Shrii Aniruddha Prasad Singh was part of a great margii family as his
father was also a bhakta. Baba Himself graced their house in Trimohan
(Bhagalpur) by conducting DMC there.

In addition, Baba inaugurated the Renaissance Universal movement in
their house on 26 January 1958 by delivering the famed lecture that was
printed in book form as “Problems of the Day”.

Shrii Aniruddha Prasad Singh was a very senior and longtime sadhaka who
used to regularly meet with Baba at the tiger’s grace in Jamalpur in the
early days of AM.

At the time of his mahaprayan, Shrii Aniruddha Prasad Singh was in his
twilight years, having been an octogenarian (approximately 80yrs of
age). Shrii Aniruddha Prasad Singh was known for telling some very
colourful Baba stories and experiences.

On the occasions of his mahaprayan (death), let us remember our dear
brother who always wanted to serve the Marga and whose own house was
like an Ananda Marga instituation itself.

It is with much sadness & sweet memories that we bid adieu to our dear
respected bother. At least now his long struggle with illness is over.
We can all take solace in the fact that he has reached his final
destination unto Baba’s lap. Baba has taken it upon Himself to save
Dadaji and grant him salvation.

With deepest respects,
Yours brotherly,

* Mahaprayan (Death): Many are aware that mahaprayan (death) is the
common term used in India and especially in Bengal to describe the death
of an honoured or even ordinary person. In that way the newspapers of
Bengal are regularly citing the mahaprayan (death) of various persons of
society who died or passed away.

Some may get confused and wrongly think that the word ‘mahaprayan’
(death) is one extraordinarily devotional term to be used in association
with Parama Purusa. But that is not at all the case. Rather to do so is
only to undermine the eternal presence of Parama Purusa. That is why no
devotees ever use the word ‘mahaprayan’ in reference to Lord Shiva or
Lord Krsna. Because Lord Shiva and Lord Krsna exist eternally. Then
there is no question of Their mahaprayan (death).

And for those who need still more technical proof then all this can
be clarified quite readily by referencing the dictionary. Specifically
in the Samsad Bengali-English dictionary on page 742. Checking there it
will be confirmed that the word ‘mahaprayan’ means death. Which is why
it used to refer to the passing away of even common citizens.
