Baba

“Pradiip shala’ka’ jvele cali eka’, se priyo to mor elo na’…” ( P.S. 4794)

Purport:

Alone sitting in isolation I lit the lamp. I was waiting and wondering
why my Dearmost has not come. I wanted to have a glance of Him, to lay my
eyes on Him. But neither did He come nor did He look towards me.

Sitting in dhyan, in my mind I prepared and decorated a seat for Him; I
was waiting and waiting for Him. But in dhyan I was just asking Him for
boons– to fulfill my worldly desires. I did not want to have Him. Rather I
wanted worldly things– boons etc. I did not ask for those things which are
divine and eternal. Instead I asked for perishable, decaying, material
things– those which are under the bondage of time, space, and person. So
instead of longing for Him, I asked Him for boon after boon. In my
misguided dhyan all these crude types desires I had.

So all that went in vain because my Dearmost did not come. In dhyan when
I was folding His seat and putting it away, then I thought that without
pure devotion then nothing is going to happen; I cannot get Him. What I did
in dhyan was just a waste of time. Everything went in vain. I gave more
importance to worldly things in comparison to devotion and I went on asking
for parabhakti from Him. That too went in vain.

Sitting alone I lit the lamp and waited, but my dear most did not come…

== HIS BOOKS ARE NOT THE WAY ==

Namaskar,
Even after a person dies, their example stands. Either that history
serves the welfare of humanity by providing a stellar model, or it
leads people in the opposite direction, toward the path of degeneration.

One of our late Dadas has put in print various ideas that may not be so
conducive to our human growth and development. It needs our clear-cut
review to remind us whether this Dada’s method is the path of dharma
or not.

This has great relevance to the way things are going in AMPS these days.
Because this Dada glorified creating a separate structure and now that
same misguided method is going on today. Thus our review is needed.

HIS MAIN CLAIM

“I had established an ashram at the foot of the Himalayas…in Dehradun
District of UP.”

One of our late avadhutas wrote these words in his own book, when describing
the time he left AMPS to establish his own ashram.

IMPORTANCE OF CONDUCT

We all know that in the general society, one’s quality, qualifications and
attributions are measured on the grounds of various superficial variables,
money, age, post, power etc.

But according to Baba’s Neohumanistic philosophy, character, dealing,
behavior and conduct are one’s true qualifications.

Baba says, “Your ideal is represented by your conduct. Your learning,
your social or economic status have nothing to do with your ideal.”
(Ananda Vanii #13)

In the above Ananda Vanii, Baba’s message is quite clear. Without ambiguity we
Ananda Margiis evaluate others on the point of their character and conduct.
Not on the point of money, power, avadhuta dress, Purodhaship, Kapalik
Sadhana, vishesha yoga, age, seniority, and Central Committee, Acarya board
and Purodha board, or even post of Purodha Pramukha.

So according to Baba’s above teaching we should evaluate the calibre of
everyone by their conduct only.

So to evaluate the quality and qualifications of this late avadhuta,
respected Dada Samanvayananda, we should discuss on the point of conduct.
How far did Samanvayanandaji’s conduct go in accordance with Baba’s
teachings.

GURU-DISCIPLE TEACHING IS PARAMOUNT

In Tantra, the Guru-disciple relation is the most significant thing. That
is why Baba has made various rules and given in Caryacarya about the
services to Guru.

We Ananda Margiis always do Guru Puja, minimum two times a day, every day.
And we know “Guru Brahma…”, the whole idea behind this is that Guru is
everything. And that any disciple of Shrii Shrii Anandamurtiji must have
this basic characteristic that they should believe in Guru, not betray. One
must not betray Guru, otherwise everything is gone.

SOME OF DADA’S HISTORY

Here in India, Margis are fully aware about the history of Dada
Samanvayanandji. But our overseas Margis and newer margiis may not be aware
so for clarity, the basic matters are described here below.

Samanvayananda’s previous name was Ac. Shivananda Avt. And in 1972
when Baba went into jail, Dada lobbied against Baba and got failure.
Precisely, Samanvayanandaji a.k.a. Dada Shivananda left the organisation
and in a challenging way he created his own organization, giving it the name
“Prema Marga”. Dada established his office in Dehradun that time.

Making matters worse, in his lifetime Samanvayanandaji never expressed repentance
or remorse for going against Guru those days.

Tragically, Samanvayananda remained shameless & glorified that betrayal,
as if what he did was just and proper.

Dada created his own book ‘Glories of …’.

And in that book he mentions many times about his great work in Dehradun.
Means he is glorifying that time when he went against Guru and made that
separate organization known as Prema Marg and he was challenging Guru and AM.

About this deceitful display, Dadaji says that this was his “great” work.

We should not forget that in those days, Baba was in jail. It was during
those difficult days for AM when all support was needed, yet the late Dada
Samanvayananda left and created his own organization to compete against AM.

Andin his book, Samanvayanandaji wrote on page 57 about his glorified
days as a pseudo-guru.

“I had established an ashram at the foot of the Himalayas…in Dehradun
District of UP.”

Thus Samanvayananda does not show an ounce of repentance for his betrayal to
Baba. Not a word of repentance does he express for those black days in
which he left Baba and created his own organization.

In simple language this is betrayal to Baba and also back-stabbing.

SO MANY TRUE MARGIIS FOLLOWED BABA

When Guru is in jail then true margiis took lot of trouble and suffering in
various ways and also got imprisonment. I have deep respect for them. But
what respect should one have when Dada Samanvayananda betrayed Baba and
left Him during that very crucial time when Baba was in jail. And when
Baba was released then Dada Samanvayanandaji painted his own black face
with white oil paint and appeared before Margis in the beginning of 1983 as a
great saint as if nobody knows about his hypocrisy and betrayal to Baba.

When Baba was in jail Margiis were suffering also in jail, and Dada
Samanvayanandaji was enjoying his own self-created guru-ship, and
establishing one organization. And when the good days of AM came, then Dadaji
returned back because his fake guruship of Prema Marga was not as
beneficial or enticing as befooling Margiis. What a hypocrisy.

Baba appointed him as brahmacarya and made him wear a white lungi in order
to help rectify Dada of his arrogant and misguided ways.

But after ’90, Samanvayanada petitioned and got a very high post in our administration.
Who will appreciate his hypocritical behavior. I don’t think that any true Margii
and WT will appreciate.

Then later on some of those group leaders made Samanvayanandaji their high priest.
And Dada Samanvayanandaji moved all around the globe & gave his sermon
like the Pope of Rome. And he praised himself about the glory of his past.

About hypocritical people Baba’s guideline is very strong.

Baba says “Hypocrites are those who betray.” “Don’t forgive till his
nature is reformed. Immediate forgiveness is a special weakness of mind. It
results in worse harm to society.” (CC-2)

Everybody in this universe can forget Dada’s back stabbing to Marga
ideology. But true Margiis and Wt’s cannot. And his poor example must
not be glorfied but rather shown as deceit so none get enticed to
make a similar mistake by going against the Marga.

Already, a few others others have created their separate, parallel
structure as our Marga is struggling to survive, but this is not
the way. None should get duped by Samanvayananda’s example.

BABA’S BLESSING

Here following is Baba’s divine guideline for building up one human society.

Baba says, “You must think, ‘I will personally move towards the supreme
desideratum, and at the same time I will try to assist those who are
suffering from despair, those steeped in blind superstition…Our family is
universal; our abode is also universal’.” (SS-18, p. 41)

Namaskar,
Shantatma

Note 1: MORE OF SAMANVAYANANDA’S DOGMATIC MANNER

Here is one further point about which Samanvayananda wrote in his
book. It regards the matter of certain instructions Dada Samanvayanand
himself dogmatically created, telling that if these are followed one will
achieve liberation.

Ac. Samanvayananda wrote in his book Ananda Satakam on p.131 last
para “Bhagavat….Paraman Padinca…” And, Samanvayanda Dada explains:

“Those who not only read but follow the instruction noted herein (of Ananda
Satakam) with interest and care, they will surely overcome the delusion of
this world and cross the stormy ocean of living in this world.” (p.131,
Ananda Satakam)

A similar type of teaching to what Samanvayanandji is teaching in this
“sutra”, is also very common teaching in Hindu religion. One famous example
is Hanuman Chalisa. Hanuman Chalisa has been written to impose / inject
fear complex into the general public mind to worship the god monkey, Hanuman.

To force the public to worship Hanuman monkey god, poet Tulsidaas wrote
“Hanuman Chalisa'” and that same way Samanvayanandaji is teaching others by
giving a dogmatic teaching like Tulsidas did. It is obvious that if the
dogmatic poet of the Hindu religion would not have injected the fear
complex then surely nobody would have appreciated to worship the monkey.

Because human psychology is that humans like to believe or pray that some
human being is their god. Not the monkeys. So it is the charisma of the
fear complex of that poetry that misguided / forced Hindu people to chant
every day the Hanuman chalisa hymn, means the monkey god eulogy.

So, it is obvious to all that to inject his Ananda Satakam on Margiis’
mind, Dada Samanvayananda did the same technique as the dogmatic Hindu poet
did.

Following is the stanza of that dogmatic monkey god hymm: ‘Jo
satbar…mahasukha hoi’. The meaning is that those who will repeat those
Hanuman Chalisas (eulogy of Hanuman monkey god) will get liberation
and be free from all worldly problems, like money, matter, ghost etc.

So with fear Hindu dogmatic people are repeating this. In the same way our
Dada Samanvayananda tried to impose his book Ananda Satakam on Margiis
by creating fear complex.

“Those who not only read but follow the instruction noted herein (of Ananda
Satakam) with interest and care, they will surely overcome the delusion of
this world and cross the stormy ocean of living in this world.” (p.131,
Ananda Satakam)

The hidden threat is that those who do not follow my teaching will be
bound up in maya. Such is the crude fear complex that Samanvayananda
used to promote his faulty book.

Just the dogmatic poet of Hindu religion did with the monkey god story.

Baba clearly explains that religions do not follow the path of rationality,
do not follow the path of dharma. Rather they claim to be issuing the word
of God, and with this excuse they inject one after another dogma among
their followers.

Baba says,”The word “Dharma” is often loosely used for so-called religion.
The reasonfor this is that when the founders of almost all religions
propagated their respective doctrines to the general mass, they claimed
they were the messages of God. But no religion ever followed the path of
logic.” (HS-I, ’87 ed., p.4)

So religions preach all sorts of harmful dogmas under the aegis of their
false claim that they are preaching the word of God.

Certainly, those living in India know very well about the monkey god Hanuman
but for overseas readers let me please tell something more….– the god
Hanuman belongs to the ape family. He has a long tail and his face is like
a monkey. It is not even a human being; Hanuman is one monkey. That is why
one name of the monkey is Hanuman. And Chalisa’ means eulogy. Every Hindu
dogmatic person is well aware of these things but for the benefit of
overseas Margiis it is meaningful to explain the matter in full.

However the main point is that this dogma of the monkey god is deeply
rooted in all fundamental Hindus’ mind. And every day they must repeat this
thing minimum one time and especially when they feel fear of ghost. The
dogma is that by repeating the monkey god name, ghosts will not come and
monkey god worshippers will ultimately reach the goal of liberation and all
desires will be fulfilled. And those who disrespect this will themselves
burn in hell fire. Because of this dogmatic belief, Hindu people are afraid
and they are repeating the Hanuman Chalisa with deep reverence.

So Dada Samanvayananda unfortunately suffered from attachment to
Hindu dogma. Clearly Dada carried this dogma on his head. Because in
the same way as the monkey god hymn, Dadaji created one complex that if any
margii will believe and respect and chant his sloka then surely they will
get liberation as if there is no need of astaunga yoga sadhana. Only his
Ananda Satakam will work as the divine ship to across the ocean of maya.

Our Language

Baba says, “All the languages of the world are our language, this always
you will remember. All the languages are your language. Of them you may
know 2, 4, 10, 20, 200, 500, and all the rest you do not know. That does
not mean that the languages which you do not know are not your language.
All the languages of the world are the language of humanity. All the
languages are the language of Parama Purus’a. For all the languages you
should have love– equal love for all the languages.” (Hindi Language,
Morning General Darshan 1/1/84, Ananda Nagar)
