Like Another Breakaway Faction

Subject: Like Another Breakaway Faction 


Namaskar, By now who is not aware that a few top margii honchos-- i.e. those comprising the NY Board of Directors-- have taken major steps towards separation. By changing the by-laws in NY they have attempted to divert the power into their own hands, thereby creating a schism between NY sector and the whole of Ananda Marga. This type of dangerous breakaway maneuver they have recently engineered, at least on paper.
Of course Baba's stated system and organisational approach is something totally different. With regards to political leadership, Baba directs us that it must be centralised. Baba says, "PROUT supports centralisation of political power and decentralisation of economic power." (PNS-18) So Baba's pristine plan is for the consolidation of political leadership. This is His Proutistic guideline and our AM society is meant to be the embodiment such an ideal.
But those opportunists in NY-- i.e. the AM Board & NY ACB etc-- suffer from a serious hankering to grab the power. That is why they have rerouted Baba's organisational systems and changed the by-laws-- all in hopes that they can control the playing field and do things like choose their own SS and run the sector according to their own petty desires. This is their crazy way of thinking: That separating themselves and breaking away is the way to get control and unbridled power. Simultaneously, the hypocritical justification they are giving to margiis around the sector is that 'breaking away is the ultimate solution to all our problems'. This is storied way they are painting it to the common margiis. However, rather than being an answer to any particular problem like the current groupism in Centre, the NY Board's push towards breaking away is nothing more than the manifestation of their own inner desire to get some post and power.
Baba has revealed and it is well documented that during the time of Indian independence there was a mad rush for political power by a few top leaders. Rather than being concerned with the unity of the country and welfare of the people, those political agents like Nehru and Jiina were totally infatuated with the idea of becoming the King-- i.e. Prime Minister. And with that lust for power and by chasing after the communal award, they cracked the whole of India into multiple pieces, thereby creating terrible chaos and the massive spilling of blood. Why? Just so that they-- Nehru, Jiina, & Co.-- could both satisfy their egoistic desire of having the top chair. So this entire horrible maneuver and political break-up of India was nothing more than the lust for power by a few greedy leaders. In reality, what hell they caused to the innocent masses was not their concern so long as they got the power. In detailed fashion, Baba Himself has graphically exposed all the selfishness and corruption during the time of Indian independence. In numerous discourses He has exposed their crooked dealings to the very bone. About this every educated margii is aware. So the whole concept of breaking away is not representative of some noble ideal or courageous action. It is just the pitiful display of some low-minded opportunists who want to sit in the top chair-- at any cost. And this is the very same nasty rut that certain political tycoons of NY sector are sunk in. But with their hypocritical tongues, such opportunists on the Board in NY will justify day and night about the glories of breaking away-- as if this disastrous approach is the panacea that will end all groupism.
It is no secret that currently our AMPS "Central" is undergoing struggle and strife and that those despots at the helm are just indulging in corrupt dealing. First Sarvatmanandji was the leading bandit and now Rudranandji is the top-notch monger. And sure enough on the sidelines others harbor grandiose dreams of snatching the power. So it is no hidden secret that things are not proper inside our Marga house. But disobeying Baba and breaking away from the whole of AM is not the solution. Think about it, after separating from Centre where is the guarantee that those very NY Board of Directors will not become corrupt--or maybe they already are crooked. In that case is there going to be another schism within that very breakaway NY party. Sorry to say, but step-wise division is not the progressive way to build a holistic human society.
So these few NY Board members who are trying to rule the scene by breaking away have no dharmic plan. In reality they do not know what to do. The proof being that if they did know what to do they would begin by following Baba's system-- and remain united. But this they have rejected. And instead they are just faking it and hoping to befool people by breaking away and posing as sadvipras-- dreaming that by this way they will satisfy their selfish desire to get more power. But who is going to get tricked by their lousy approach of breaking away when it is totally anti-Prout and against Baba's teachings.
Only by adhering to Baba's guidelines and the principles of Prout can a true society be formed. By this way we will recognise those leading sadvipras: By their adherence to the ideals of Prout. That will be their trademark. In contrast, those who adopt fancy hellish tricks like breaking away can never properly lead the collective. This is Baba's warning. Baba says, "According to PROUT, the rule of sadvipras is the ideal form of leadership. The establishment of sadvipra leadership will require the systematic and rational application of PROUT by the collective effort of many highly intelligent people. Sadvipra rule cannot be established by blind physical force or idle intellectual extravaganza." (PNS-18)
By Baba's divine grace He has given us all the tools to form that unified human society. By following His God-centered teachings of Prout and Neo-Humanism all groupism and pseudo-reformist ploys will fade away and one pristine human family will be born. This wonderful day is soon coming... Baba says, "One Cosmic ideology will have to be propagated and that ideology is that one Supreme Entity-- the Cosmic Entity-- Who is the goal of all living beings. This spiritual sentiment will keep human beings united for all time to come." (To The Patriots, p. 31) Namaskar, Mahendra
These days some margiis in NY have fallen under the break-away spell of those tall-talking NY Board Members. Here below, by referring to the history of Bengal, Baba reveals the irony behind such circumstances. Baba says, "Those same Bengalees who had once fought with all their might to unify Bengal presented a petition to the British in 1947 to once again divide Bengal in two. When the two Bengals were united in 1912 the Bengalees thought that they had won the fight. And when Bengal was again divided in two in 1947, again the Bengalees thought they had won the fight. What a tragedy of history! (SC-1, disc 6) Likewise, for years and years everyone in NY was quite proud to be part of our global organisational structure-- AMPS. And much was done in support of that by getting registered and incorporated etc. Yet now, after having gotten duped by certain NY Board Members, a few people are feeling glorified by breaking away from that very structure. This is the irony and tragedy of the day.
It does not take a genius to understand that currently things in AMPS are not working properly. Sarvatmanandji's team and Rudranandji's faction have caused hell all around. But the answer to this is not to therefore change Baba's defined systems. That would turn a small problem into a catastrophe; that would be suicidal. It would be similar to chopping off one's head just because one was suffering from a minor headache. Obviously cutting off the head is not the answer. In the same way, jumping ship and tossing aside Baba's systems and breaking away from AMPS is not the antidote to the current power struggle in Centre. By Baba's grace and by adhering to His practices and systems good margiis and wts are bound to find that perfect solution and make our AMPS a shining representation of AM ideals. By this way we will surely get victory. Baba says, "Just as the philosophers' stone is meant to transform everything into gold, Ananda Marga ideology can most definitely, find a just and rational solution whenever it is applied to any problem." (POD, #36, p.47)
Board of Directors of Ananda Marga Inc. U.S.A: Former-SS, Dada Tiirthananda SOS, Dada Rainjitananda Dada Phalashuddhananda Vishvadeva (Eugene, OR) Arjuna (Los Angeles, CA) Vinay (Texas) Valmiki (Asheville, North Carolina)
The aforementioned crew are the ones responsible for changing the by-laws of NY sector in an effort to grab unbridled control of the sector. This is their breakaway ploy.
*************************************** About our AM Dances
Baba says, "You know Lalita Ma'rmika dance used during Kiirtana is a purely spiritual dance, and Kaos'ikii is a psycho-spiritual dance - it starts on the psychic level and culminates on the spiritual level. And Ta'n'd'ava is physico-psycho-spiritual." "In Lalita Ma'rmika, the position of the arms is above 90 degrees. This denotes that it is a Mudra' - in Sam'skrta it is called a 'Mudra'. This mudra' means, 'O Supreme Creator, Thou art mine and I am Yours. I am Thine'." (AV-12, p.31)
