Subject: Proof of Distortion in New Book: AV 11-12

BABA

“Tumi bha’lo ba’so yadi, eso…” (P.S. 792)

Purport:

Baba, You are the most loving One. But I have hardly any devotion; that
is why sometimes I feel that You do not love me. Baba, when You love me
so much then please come close. Baba, if You are going to judge me by my
virtue and vice and based on that You will decide whether I am qualified
or not, then I do not have any hope because I only possess negative
things. I do not have any good qualities or virtues in my life. So
without considering my virtue and vice– good or bad things– please come.

Baba, the garden of my life is filled with thorns. There is not a single flower;
but, innumerable buds are there. So when You will come then those buds will surely
bloom, otherwise not– they will wither away. But on those flowers which do bloom,
then there You will remain seated. Baba, please sit on those newly blossomed flowers.

Baba, in my heart neither I have any song nor I have longing to sing the song.
The pollen of my prana has dried up and is floating in the air. All this happens
because You are remaining distant. When I will get the blessing of Your touch then
my whole existence will be vibrated. And all the negative things will turn into
positive ones. And by that way I will be able to serve You. Baba, without seeing
my virtue and vice please come…

== PROOF OF DISTORTION IN NEW BOOK: AV 11-12 ==

Note: Many of us know that there are terrible issues with the publication
of Baba’s books. Even then it has to be recognised that Dada Acyutanandaji
has tried hard since he became part of the Publications team to improve the quality
of the books. It is due to his efforts and Baba’s grace that progress has been made.
Tragically at present our dear Dada Acyutanandaji is bed-ridden in Kolkata due to long
standing illness. As our brother and esteemed worker, we are hoping for his
speediest recovery. Once he is feeling better we hold much confidence that he
can put forth effort to improve upon the gross errors that have plagued our AM
books since 1990.

Namaskar,
The highly touted, latest edition of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 11-12
(2008) came out last year with much fanfare; unfortunately the book is
riddled with scriptural distortions.

This letter (a) contains an important Baba story on keeping the sanctity
of His scripture, and also (b) points out grave transcription /
translation errors from the recently published AV 11-12 (2008).

Although AV-12 has many, many errors, one key distorted paragraph about
priest dogma has been discussed in detail below.

CANNOT LIVE TOGETHER WITHOUT IDEOLOGY

One of Baba’s great reasons for coming onto this earth is to teach
humans how to live together. Some mistakenly think that by mixing and
merging all the groups together then a great human society can be built.
However, that is not possible: Just as leeches can never co-exist with
humans, similarly, combining different forms of self & group interests
can never bring that grand ideal of ‘ek manav samaj’, or one human
society. To do that– to build a human society in the true sense of the
word– ideology is needed. For that reason Baba has come and given His
teachings.

And it is our duty to maintain the integrity of those teachings– if not
one human society will never be formed on this earth.

BABA STORY:

MAINTAIN SANCTITY OF MY TEACHINGS

Being the Parama Purusa incarnate, Baba has issued various warnings
about future events and wrongdoings pertaining to His divine teachings.
From these below instances, we can see how much importance Baba has
placed on keeping Marga teachings perfect and free from dogma.

For example, it is well known how Baba issued a stern warning to
Raghunathji about the dogma of idol worship. Baba said, ‘After I leave
this body, you must ensure that no form of idol worship is done in AM’.

And to Parasattananda, Baba told, ‘After my leaving, there must not be
any form of celebration or ritualistic ceremony commemorating that
date’. Hence here, Baba was foretelling that no dogmatic Mahaprayan
should be started.

And to family Ac Pratapadityaji, Baba warned, ‘In the past crooked Hindu
priests who professed to be followers of Lord Krsna distorted and ruined
Lord Krsna’s teachings by inserting all kinds of dogma.
I have taken certain precautions and arranged to have everything
recorded. That way distortions will not be allowed to happen, even then
you must be vigilant not to let anyone ruin My discourses.’

OUR MORAL DUTY

As disciples of Baba, we should be very strict in preserving the
sanctity of His printed discourses. This is our moral duty.

Some may claim, ‘What is the big deal if we change a few words here and
there– that is fine, so long as we keep the gist of what He is saying’.
Some may say like this.

But that error-prone approach will not do. It is not acceptable. Because
one error leads to another until finally everything is totally ruined.
Vigilance is needed from the very beginning.

NOT A GROUPIST ISSUE

Everyone knows that the Tiljala camp is the one printing Baba’s books
these days. But here the issue is not who is printing Baba’s books. No
one is trying to criticise any group per se. That is not the motivating
factor behind this letter.

The issue is that the our AM books– Baba’s teachings– must be proper,
period, no excuses. That is what Baba wants and that is what this letter
is about.

Who can forget those days in Patna when Baba was harshly scolding and
rebuking various wt’s for not recording and printing His discourses.
Baba was furious and set the tone that His discourses must be recorded
and printed in a timely and proper way.

So this whole topic goes way beyond any petty group clash. Rather it is
an issue of non-compromising strictness and faith regarding the sanctity
and Ista and Adarsha.

THE PROBLEM WITH AV-12

Now then to the problem at hand…

Nearly every discourse in AV-12 (2008) has been terribly distorted in
one way or another. Here we are not just talking about skipping over
small words like ‘and’ or ‘but’ etc, but rather deep-seeded distortions
that affect the very meaning of Baba’s discourse.

Here is one critical example. In the 3rd to last paragraph of the
discourse, ‘Everything Comes From Something’ (2 June 1979 evening, Lyon,
France), those publishers wrote it entirely wrong.

THEY WRONGLY WROTE: “And you should never think, ‘Oh, because the priest
didn’t issue me any ticket for Heaven, I won’t be able to go to Heaven.’
No, no, no, don’t say that. The priest has no right to issue you a
ticket, and who is going to issue you a ticket to Hell? No, no, no, your
good actions will bring you closer to Parama Purus’a, and finally you
will become one with Him by dint of your sa’dhana’, by dint of your
occult practice.”

Yet see here what Baba really spoke.

BABA ORIGINALLY SPOKE: “And you should never think, “Oh, because the
priest didn’t issue any ticket for Heaven, that’s why I won’t be able to
go to the Heaven.” No, no, no, don’t think that. The priest has got no
right to issue you a ticket of heaven, and who is going to issue him
with a ticket to Hell? No, no, no, your good actions will bring you
closer to the Parama Purus’a, and finally you will become one with Him
by dint of your sa’dhana’, by dint of your occult practice.”

The above is what Baba originally spoke in English as He was in Europe
at the time and this discourse was given 100% in English.

So in Baba’s version, He is pointing out the injustice of the priests
and making a joke about how those dogmatic priests should sent to hell.

BABA SPOKE: “The priest has got no right to issue you a ticket of
heaven, and who is going to issue him with a ticket to Hell?”

Here Baba is making a direct statement about how crooked priests have no
right to misguide exploit the people based on the false notions of
heaven or hell. Rather, those priests themselves will live in their own
hell if they continue to perpetrate crimes against humanity. That is
Baba’s essential point.

But the publishers of the book changed that very section to make it
sound like you the reader, not the priest, is being sent to hell.

THOSE PUBLISHERS WROTE: “The priest has no right to issue you a ticket,
and who is going to issue you a ticket to Hell?”

So they totally skirted the issue of Baba mocking and attacking that
priestly dogma. So their new edition of AV-12 strays far from Baba’s
teaching.

Because in His revolutionary way, Baba is boldly pointing out the dogma
of the priest class and bashing and mocking their so-called authority,
yet our Publishers changed that section entirely.

And indeed there are so numerous errors.

A COMEDY OF ERRORS

In comparing the above two paragraphs, anyone can see that 13 errors of
omission and commission have been made in only 4 or 5 lines of text.
That means there are 2 or 3 distortions on every line. And it seems the
whole book is like that. Yet this newly published AV 11-12 (2008) is the
book that some of our respected Dadas are saying is “perfect”, and done
“word-for-word” according to the original cassette. They were assuring
margiis that there are no errors in this book etc, etc.

But now we can see for ourselves what is going on.

THE MAIN CRITICAL ERROR: ‘PRIEST IS GOING TO HELL’

And again, the main critical error of this passage is that those
publishers distorted the section where Baba is saying that the priest
will go to hell. This is a serious point.

Because AM is against all kinds of dogma, especially religious dogma as
that stifles the growth of the whole society. And Baba is adamantly
telling that not only do those priests not have the power to send anyone
to heaven, but because of their shams and duplicity those crude priests
themselves will go to hell. That is Baba’s dramatic statement.

Yet the publishers missed and distorted this point entirely when
printing the latest version of Ananda Vacanamrtam 11-12.

Baba makes a revolutionary stand against priest dogma and our respected
publishers deleted that point.

WHY LIKE THIS

Was the error done deliberately by our publishers– i.e. The Tiljala
camp. Was it a mere oversight– along with thousands of others? How did
it happen? Only we can guess.

But one thing is certain: Since they are so enthusiastic to translate
all Baba’s discourses from Bangla, irregardless of the original
language, perhaps that is the cause of this problem. That is one hypothesis.

Or maybe those Dadas just want to preserve or protect the sanctity of
the priest class. Or maybe they are scared of criticising those priests.

Any or all of the above may be the reason why this horrible distortion
was done.

Let us remember that in the recent past, these same publishers deleted
the final three paragraphs of the discourse ‘Liberation of Intellect’
(NHNS) where Baba points out how the dogma of Islam says three females
are equal to one male.

WHAT SHOULD BE DONE:

BOOK IS NOT WORTH PURCHASING

So now that we know the new book, Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 11-12 (2008),
is full of big and small errors, then what should be done.

Truly speaking, this book is not worth purchasing when it is in such bad
shape. The plus point is that by our not purchasing it, then it puts
pressure on those publishers to print it properly.

Whereas if we all simply go out and buy the book with all those current
errors and distortions, then they will think it is fine. And those
errors will remain in the book up to eternity.

Because just see: The first edition of AV-12 was published in July 1980.
And now, after 28 long years, the book is again being printed with all
these errors. If we just accept the book in this poor condition, we will
all be long gone from this earth by the time a new edition is printed–
in 50 or 100 years from now.

So if in this lifetime you would like to have an accurate version of
AV-12, and would like to see all of Baba’s books printed in the right
way, then certainly we should discard the 2008 version of AV-12 and
refrain from purchasing it.

That will send the proper message to those involved.

Excuse me for saying so but, “money talks”, at least in this case
because those publishers are trying to generate a solid income. And if
we opt to NOT purchase the book then it makes a profound statement on
their bank account.

Of course those truly interested in serving Baba will always be strict
to ensure that no mistakes are made in His books, and if so an immediate
correction will be done and an apology issued. In that case, money need
not come into play. With all due respect, our Dadas seem to have
something else on their mind because they never make a swift, or, for
that matter, any rectification of their distorted books. And they
certainly never apologise or admit their guilt. In that case what are we
to think. No doubt they are our family members, but still we have to
evaluate the situation for what it is.

BABA’S BLESSING

By Baba’s grace He has given us human life and we should ensure that we
preserve the integrity of Baba’s teachings. Here is Baba’s special
teaching on this point.

Baba says, “You have to build up society by your collective efforts. You
know when the weaver weaves clothes then rats and termites engage in
trying to cut it. So the weaver has to protect the clothes from those
rats and termites. In the same way when you are building anything then
without any delay various types of “termites” and “rats” will try to
destroy that work. You must be careful. Above all those who have a pious
motive to build up something, they ultimately get victory. But “rats”
and “termites” do not have a pure motive so ultimately getting destroyed
is their fate. Just they leave some dirty, ugly mark in the pages of history.”

“By seeing those ugly, black marks, in future people think ‘oh, it seems
this was attacked by termites and rats. Oh it appears that the termites
and rats which came to attack and destroy this, but instead those rats
and termites broke their teeth and got annihilated’.”

“It is the universal law. So as you build up good things, be vigilant to
keep sharp eyes all around. Be sure to protect your work from “rats” and
“termites”.”

“In the past females were preparing mango jelly in summer. And to shoe
away the crows & to protect the mango jelly, one boy from the house was
always standing guard with large stick in his hand and sharp eyes
watching for those crows. Same way you should always be alert & vigilant
to save your work from termites and rats. Then work will be done…”

“Today again you take oath to build up the earth by your own individual
and collective efforts. We have come here to beautify this earth. We
will make it so and we will go on doing this our whole life. This will
be our main collective vow.” (AV-24 Hindi, p.149).

Namaskar,
Pramod

Note 1: MORE MISTAKES FROM AV-12

Here is another discourse from AV-12 (2008) that is riddled with errors
and distortions. The following is the opening paragraph from the
discourse ‘An Expression is Never Alone’.

In BOLD LETTERS & [in brackets] are words that Baba spoke but do not
appear in the latest printed edition of the discourse.

“The entire expression of this Universe is vibrational. Whenever
[WHEREVER not whenever] there is vibration, there is sound, there is
colour. So whatever you see or whatever you feel has an inference or
inferences that come in contact with your [OUR not your] sensory or
motor organs – has some sound. You see, when you are moving, you are
walking, a particular sound – “tak, tak, kat, kat” – is created. That
particular sound, sound representing an action, is called “acoustic
root” – in Samskrta, “Biija Mantra”. [WHATEVER YOU DO], there is a sound
just to represent the spirit of that being [DOING not being], of that
deed. While you sit [SLEEP not sit] you are doing something, that is,
your respiratory organ is functioning…”

And like this there are countless errors in the newly printed AV-12.
Because the errors in the above paragraph are of a less severe nature
than the error about the priest dogma and going to hell mentioned in the
main letter, for that reason this has been added as a note instead of
being discussed in the body part of the letter.

***************************************
We Should Know & Correct

Baba says, “In algebra the formula (a+b) squared= a2 + b2 + 2ab. This is
a well known formula and originally it was invented by Mahars’i Kapil.”
(SC-8, disc 1, 5 oct 86 kolkata)

Note: It is well known that Mahars’i Kapil was born in India several
thousand years ago. People commonly think the above formula was first
propounded by a western mathematician, but in the above teaching Baba
reveals the real fact. This gives the idea those mathematics was highly
evolved in that early history of India.

Here below Baba tells another important fact regarding Kapil:

Baba says, “The first philosopher was Mahars’i Kapil, who will be
remembered and respected for all time.” (AFPS-9, ‘Geology & Human
Civilisation’)

Baba

“Ye ga’ne toma’ke shon’a’i tumi ki shon’ na’ priyo…” (PS 4471)

Purport:

O’ my dearmost Baba, why don’t You listen to the song which I am singing
for You? Why do You neglect that song which is coming from my heart. The
song which expresses the longing and yearning of my heart. That very song
You do not care about– why like this.

When the flower which blossoms on this earth and emanates aroma all
around, when that very flower is lying on the dust & crying, can that be
forgotten?

If it pleases You, You can take back all those mundane things which You
have given me. Only one request I have– that please remain constantly in
my ideation. That is my sole desire…

== ABOUT THE BOOK “BA’NGLA AND BA’NGA’LII ==

Namaskar,
These days, one group is spreading dogma that their samaj is the gifted
one. And Baba did a special favor. At the centre of the favor was, a
special book about their samaj which Baba wrote. And that book is “Bangla
and Bengali”. So this type of message is spreading around. And it is
creating confusion in the entire Margi society. So on this point, certain
critical facts I gathered, that I am enlisting here for your consultation.

And at the same time, it is my request that what is your opinion about this
point. You should also share. So here are the points about the “Bangla and
Bengali” book, which that group is bragging about.

This book is not any special book. Rather it is just one in the series of
collections of discourses, made from various previous AM books. And not
only that. It is not even a collection of complete discourses. It has a few
discourses, which are complete — which have been collected from other AM
books. And yet most are just excerpts–a few paragraphs from discourses
which are found in other books of AM Publications. Following are the facts.

1. To say or give logic that this book is specially about Bengal and given
by Baba specially for that. And similar thing Baba did not do in relation
with other samajas, does not have any sense.

2. For example, see the first discourse in this ‘Bangla and Bengali’ book,
entitled “Tantra and Indo-Aryan Civilization”. – In Bangla, “Tantra o Arya
Bha’ratiiya Sabyata'”.

This is one very old discourse from the book “Abhimata”. In English, that
book is called “The Opinion”. The discourse is now also in A Few Problems
Solved (AFPS) and Discourses on Tantra. Those who are senior Margis, they
know that this discourse was commonly known many, many years back. That
time when Ananda Doot was published in Hindi, there it got published. When
Central Office was in Jamalpur. And this book “Bangla and Bengali” came
only recently.

So in “Bangla and Bengali”, that old discourse has been added and made the
first chapter.

So the point here is, that the discourse “Tantra and Indo-Aryan
Civilization” is not originally published in “Bangla and Bengali”. Not at
all. To suggest so is to mislead. Rather, this discourse has been published
since many years in various AMPS books. It has been brought into this book
“Bangla and Bengali” only recently, but this discourse has come from other
published AMPS books. Here in “Bangla and Bengali”, it is just an appended
discourse, part of a collection.

Yet one group is claiming, that this book “Bangla and Bengali” was
specially written by Baba as a favor to them, to reveal that their samaj
(socio-economic unit) is gifted above all others. When this discourse and
so many others from the book, already existed for years and were simply
republished and reprinted in “Bangla and Bengali”. Then if anyone is using
this book to say their samaj is more gifted than others, that is looking
like something false.

NON-BENGALI AREAS GOT SUPPRESSED

3. Usually wherever Baba visited, He gave huge talks on the various points of
that local area / socioeconomic unit / samaj. Wherever DMC was, there Baba
made a special tour and invited samaj Margis to join in the discourse. And
then He gave various types of informations, about the local area and its
development. But Sarvatmanandji did not like these discourses on samajas
(socio-economic movements) outside Bengal, so those discourses did not get
printed. Margis of those areas where Baba visited, they are living proof of
this.

If Sarvatmanandji had continued as the leader of AMPS, then Baba’s
discourses on other samajas all over India outside Bengal, they would never
have come in the picture. Because in this world everything is changing.
Those who are born, they will die. So those who are living proof, i.e.
Margis of all those samajas (socio-economic units) outside Bengal where
Baba visited. After their passing away, proof of Baba’s visits to those
places would have been lost. But instead now these Margis are the proof.

Means, Baba gave huge information about all these samajas (socio-economic
units) throughout India. Each and every samaj where Baba visited, such
things happened. And such “Bangla-Bengali” type of book can be made about
all the samajas.

So saying this– that Baba only spoke about Amra Bengali and none else,
that is the notion of mental illness.

4. This “Bangla and Bengali” book is made of excerpts from previously
published discourses. That is, discourses which have already been published
in other AMPS books. Excerpts or limited selected parts of those discourses
have been re-printed in “Bangla and Bengali”.

So one group is claiming that Baba has specially given this book for their
samaj. That it is one special grace He made. When the discourses are
published already in other AMPS books, then it is clear this is false news
they are propagating.

5. Most of the discourses in “Bangla and Bengali”, either they are full
discourses available elsewhere in previous AM publications, or they are
partial excerpts taken directly from other chapters of Baba’s discourses.

6. One more example I will give you. The Samskrta grammar book series
Shabda Cayanika from book 1-26.

One of the chapters of this ‘Bangla and Bengali’ book is called “Bengali ki
Viiresh Vijay Ke Bhule Jabe?”. This very chapter is an excerpt from the
Samskrta grammar Shabda Cayanika book, Part 1 pages 93-115. It is also
available in the ZY-Find electronic edition.

So in that way, what is printed in “Bangla and Bengali” is just excerpted
from other AMPS books. Chapter after chapter in this Bangla-Bengali book is
like that–taken from other books. But groupist persons are bragging that
this book proves Baba favored their samaj. Compared to other samajas, they
falsely claim that Bangalistan was given “top priority by Baba”. And the
book “Bangla and Bengali” which they say proves Baba gave more attention to
their samaj, is full of discourses reprinted from other books. Here above I
have given one example, and I will provide further examples below.

7. Those who were in power those days, wherever they got anything from
Baba’s discourses related with Bengali, they collected those paragraphs.
And those very things, which Baba spoke about other samajas, they avoided.
They rejected such things which are unrelated with their samaj, like straw.
Then with the excerpts about Bengal which they collected, they created
different titles and made them look like various independent discourses.
And in that way a special book was created, that is — “Bangla and
Bengali”. This is a sort of hypocrisy.

To claim that “Bangalistan was given top priority by Baba in all the
Samajas.” And they try to prove Baba’s “favoritism” on the basis of the
book “Bangla and Bengali”. But such claims are nonsense, as all Margis know
that Baba’s discourses about other samajas are plenty. But the group in
power those days ignored and refused to print those other samaj discourses.

And the book “Bangla and Bengali” which is supposed to prove Baba focussed
only on Amra Bengali– that book is full of discourses reprinted from other
books which themselves have nothing to do with Bengal. So such claims to
the “special status” of Bengal are completely false, unfounded.

8. We know that Namami Krsna Sundaram, Namah Shivaya Shantaya, Ananda
Sutram, Guide to Human Conduct, and so many books. They are all complete
books of Baba. Everything in these just-mentioned titles is original to
those very books. It was never published before it came in those books.
These are the volumes of Baba’s originally published material.

While after that, so many books came which are collections of other books.
And these collected books such as AM Philosophy in a Nutshell, are
“collection books”. Because discourses from other AMPS books like Ananada
Marga Elementary Philosophy, Idea and Ideology, Tattva Kaomudii, Faculty of
Knowledge, Prama, Namami Krsna Sundaram, etc. So many discourses of all
these books have been collected. And one series has been made, whose name
is AM Philosophy in a Nutshell.

But here, one thing we should remember. That in the Ananda Marga Philosophy
in a Nutshell series, excerpts or sections of discourses from other books
of Baba are not treated as independent chapters. No partial discourses have
been brought. Rather, certain chapters have been brought in full, and this
collection book, has been created.

9. To create collection books, there is a standard style which Baba has
shown us: Collect the complete discourses given on one particular idea. And
then gather those discourses, print them together and create one book. But
collecting the paragraphs of various chapters and treating them as a
special chapter. And on the top beating the drum, that “This special
‘Bangla and Bengali’ book is given by Baba in favor of Bengal only. No
samaj could get that favor from Baba’s side.” Those who write like this, or
propagate like this, they are imbalanced.

10. Here are some more facts, about the “Bangla and Bengali” book. From so
many other books, like Ananda Vacanamrtam, Subhasita Samgraha, Prout, etc,
different paragraphs have been collected and treated as though they are
independent chapters of “Bangla and Bengali”. In that way, this “Bangla and
Bengali” book has been created.

For example, Kuru Punyam Ahoratram – “Do Virtuous deeds Day and Night”. And
“Seven Secrets of Success”. And so many more such discourses already
printed in other books. They just took the discourse and branded it as a
discourse of “Bangla and Bengali”. They gave a new title and put it there.
As though it had never been published elsewhere.

By this way, fanatic Bengalis, those who are suffering from the psychic
disease of narrow-mindedness or racial supremacy.(see note 1) They created
the book. And now they are puffed up in the vanity of the supremacy of
their race. And they think that they are specially God-gifted.

So one should understand the hypocrisy of hypocritical people. With their
dogmatic mind what they say, what they write has nothing to do with dharma,
morality, or standard human practice. When hypocrisy is the be-all and
end-all of life, then what noble guideline can you get from such people?

Now in our organization, group clash is up to its brim. Its peak. Both the
groups are creating huge problem. I did not have any desire to write on
such point related with group politics. And when these groupist people,
they falsely propagate their glory in silly manners, then usually I keep
quiet.

But in this case of “Bangla and Bengali”, they brought Baba into their
periphery. (see note 2) And they wrote in such a way as if Baba did a
special favor to them. By writing the “Bangla and Bengali” book. But that
was not the Satya, or eternal truth. Rather to give proper answer, all
these above narrated facts have been collected. To give proof that Baba is
impartial. He did not bestow special favor to Bengalistan. Only psychically
diseased (see note 3) people are painting the rosy picture in a different
way from the reality. No one should forget that Baba loves equally, one and
all. He teaches us to work for the entire universe. Mind should be 360
degrees. It must not be narrow. Please write your suggestions.

BABA’S BLESSING

In these difficult days, Baba blesses us with the following inspiration.
That these times of narrow minded thought are giving way to a new, more
enlightened age.

“Narrow sentiments are gradually fading away and a universal outlook is
arising in the minds of human beings. Science and technological development
have exposed the blind faith and dogma that have suffocated many sections
of society, and gradually humanity is advancing towards an age of
rationality and common interest.” (PNS-13, p.18)

Baba further graces us,

“We have a bright future–the crimson light of that future is breaking
through the dark horizon of the present. We must welcome it.” (PNS-9, p.36)

Namaskar,
Ramlal

* In one of his group propaganda letters entitled “SUPPORT BANGALISTAN &
SAMAJ MOVEMENT”, Kalyaneshvaranandji has written the following:

“Bangalistan was given top priority by Baba in all the Samajas.”
And to support his claim, Kalyaneshvaranandji has written:

“Baba published the book “Bangla and Bangali.” No
such book was published by AMPS about any other Samaj,
because – Baba never spoke so much about any other
Samaj”

** These Shabda Cayanika discourses Baba has given in the Bangla language.
That is why innocent and confused people, they think this is a book of
Bengali grammar. But those who have gone through the book very carefully,
they know this is Samskrta grammar. This book has nothing to do with
Bengali grammar only. It is the grammar mainly of Samskrta, and then other
Samskrta-related languages. Because hundreds of languages’ vocabulary is
from Samskrta. A huge percentage is there. Mostly Indian languages, some
have more than 90% Samskrta and some a little less. But they carry these
roots. That’s why this Shabda Cayanika book is the grammar of all those
languages. So it is our duty to remove this dogma that this Shabda Cayanika
is a Bengali grammar book.

It is just like when a mad dog bites anyone, then the germ spreads to and
spoils that very living being. Similarly these diseased people, whatever
comes in their contact, they tried to color it in their Bengali color. And
went on and on singing the chorus in the favor of their samaj or their
language. And so many things.

*** In “Bangla and Bengali”, most of the discourses are like this — that
is, excerpted from somewhere else. Two examples I have given you, above.
But almost all are like this. Here follow more.

Other chapters in “Bangla and Bengali” taken from Shabda Cayanika include:
– “History of Bengal” from AFPS parts 3 and 5. They made this into the
chapters 9 and 10 of Bangla and Bengali.

– “Bengali New Year” — This was AFPS-5, and they put it in as the chapter
11 of Bangla and Bengali.

– “Spring Festival” is from AFPS-5 . And they put it as chapter #12 in
Bangla and Bengali.

– “Light Festival” from AVM, also taken and placed in Bangla and Bengali.

And so many such discourses of AVM and Prout, and AFPS. And the Samskrta
Grammar book. They just collected some full discourses and some excerpts.
Some excerpts have been taken also from the Varna Vijinana and Varna
Vicitra series of discourses. Uprooted from their original place and
printed there in “Bangla and Bengali”.

note 1: Regarding those who suffer from the psychic disease of
narrow-mindedness or racial supremacy. Those who are puffed up in the
vanity of the supremacy of their race. And they think they are specially
God-gifted.

About the path followed by such persons, Baba says,

“The followers of ism foolishly consider themselves to be God’s chosen ones…
They think that the Supreme Father bestows His grace only on them,
not on the rest of creation.” (PNS-16, p.6)

And regarding such people, who consider their race to be higher than that
of others. Baba condemns such persons on the point of their racial supremacy.

Baba says,

“Those who…believe in the artificial distinctions of caste and class,
etc., or beat drums proclaiming racial supremacy, follow the path of
self-contraction. Their sa’dhana’ is the sa’dhana’ of ignorance and
annihilation.” (DT-2, p.45)

Baba concludes below, explaining about the outcome of those who misguidedly
follow this crude path of racial supremacy, by viciously exploiting others.

Baba says,

“They talk about universalism like parrots. They have no defined ideology
in their individual and collective lives, and merely dedicate themselves to
the deception of the human race as they strive to serve their petty
self-interests by any means, fair or foul. We cannot expect any beneficial
contribution from them.” (DT-2, p.13)

Note 2: My situation is like suppose, if you are sitting in your quiet
lonely room, doing your own job. And one dog started barking outside the
window, constantly. Then how long can you tolerate such noise? So under the
pressure of circumstances, you have to go and solve the barking problem. So
when some people give wrong notion that Baba gave a special favor to their
samaj or their language, then it is the duty of any Margi to remove the
dogma which is getting spread. Because of this reason, I was forced to
write.

Note 3: Baba explains that only psychically diseased persons can develop
interest to propagate their own so-called racial supremacy. And paint one
falsified picture that Taraka Brahma favors their samaj above all others.

Here Baba explains about the origin of this serious affliction.

Baba says,

“Those who do not follow the spiritual path may perform harmful actions at
any time. Even those whom society respects as intelligent or learned may,
in reality, be no better than “polished satans”, or what the scriptures
call “demons”. Our modern society is full of such people.” (DT-2, p.13)

And ultimately, Baba tells the fate of such persons.

Baba says,

“Those who accept differences of lineage and caste degrade themselves, and
are ultimately converted into foxes, dogs, pigs, worms, or even trees and
stones.” No one can prevent their degradation.” (DT-2, p.45)

About Rich People

Parama Purusa Baba says, “It must always be remembered that the value of
money lies in its proper use. If more money is accumulated than what is
necessary, it becomes valueless for want of use. To the extent that you
keep idle and valueless money with you, to that extent you become
responsible for the injustices done to the hungry and the naked. Your
valueless hoard will have to be made valuable by providing opportunities
for use by others. Those who do not know the right use of money on the
basis of the exchange of mundane resources are in fact the enemies of
society.” (HS-1, p. 41)
