Jackal Posing as a Lion

Date: 28 Apr 2006 21:16:50 -0000 From: "Pramod Dev" To: Subject: Jackal Posing as a Lion Baba "Dhu'lir dharn'iite madhurii d'ha'lite tumi esecho a'jike..." - P.S. 3383 Purport: Baba, by Your divine grace You have advented today to inundate this dusty earth with the sweetness Your divinity. Baba, You have come to give the balm of soothing nectar to those grief-stricken people who are crying in agony. And by Your grace You console them by telling: 'Don't worry I am with You; I will remove all your sufferings'. Baba, You have come to grant the power of speech to those who are mute and dumb. By that way, thinking of You, they can rise up and fight against disparities, injustices and exploitation. Baba, by Your grace for all these reasons You have come. Baba, for all those who were lagging behind; for those downtrodden people who do not get any respect; and for those most neglected souls who lost everything and have no money nor social prestige; for them, You have broken the jail of cimmerian darkness and staticity of their life. Baba, by Your grace You have smashed all those negative social bondages that were keeping these helpless people suppressed. Baba, by Your divine grace You have brought peace and effulgence into their lives. Baba, with Your divine love and attraction, You tenderly pull everyone close to You and bless one and all. Baba, You have wiped away the differences of rich and poor, high and low, and touchable and untouchable. And by Your grace You have lovingly brought all types of people together and joined them with one beautiful thread. Baba, today You have advented Yourself on this trouble-torn earth to grace everyone. Baba, those who were suffering from hopelessness and those who were submerged in cimmerian darkness, for them You have advented today. And in the shyness of their newly found joy, all these people have accepted You as their Goal. They have accepted You as their everything and surrendered at Your alter. The entire creation has gotten blessed by Your divine effulgence. In a very happy and exalted state, everyone has begun moving ahead, joyfully. Baba, with Your divine love and compassion You have come on this dusty earth to bless everyone. You are grace personified...
Namaskar, Just recently the power-seeking EC (Effecting Change) camp held their weekend confernece and global meeting in Maharashtra. This below letter is based on the outcomes and resolutions of their gathering.
We have now entered the era where all kinds of walks of life are coming forward with a loud trumpet-bugle and a big blow of the horn to publicly announce that they are 'the great dharmikas' and they have come to 'save the day'. To attract the masses, such opportunists, like the EC (Effecting Change) camp and various ACB members, boldly proclaim that from today they are not going to tolerate any groupist dealings: Everything must be "ideological". This type of flowery talk they give. As if all the atrocities of groupism started just now-- just today. When in fact all the dirty injustices of extreme factionalism have been rampant since 1990. And what these EC fellows fail to say, what they are unable to hide is that they themselves are the very ones who for years and years were the hands and feet of those various group leaders. Such EC cronies themselves for years and years meekly kissed up to the factional powers in order to get a piece of the pie, i.e. post. But now that the tables have turned-- i.e. now that the reputation of those group leaders is like mud-- these EC opportunist types have switched their side and are now suddenly posing as the kings of dharma and making high assertions like "no more groupism" and "ideology is tops". These have become the fashion phrases of the day for such type of opportunists.
A few sadhakas may be naively thinking that those EC puppets really underwent a dramatic change within and now they are really the flagbearers of justice and nobility etc. But here Baba cautions us about such chameleons like EC who constantly shift their position for their own political gain. Such persons do not undergo a real reversal inside. Their heart does not change so easily, just their political strategy switches. This is Baba's warning. Baba says, "There may be some people who will consider this change of sentimental strategy to be a natural process of evolution, but in fact it is not evolution but a metamorphosis of strategy. Evolution does not take place so quickly nor so easily." (NH-LOI: Disc 10)
Amidst all this scheming, one of the main circumstances is that at present in our Marga there is a switchover going on. There is an opening at the top of the structural pyramid. A time of change is in the air and a big transition is happening: The old ideas of groupism etc are being thrown out by the common people-- by margiis around the globe. So now a variety of opportunists like EC are colouring themselves differently and vying to fill the gap to grab the power. Here Baba is warning us about this very circumstance. Baba says, "There is an ideological vacuum... it will be filled up in a short time. This vacuum has to be immediately filled with a strong guiding and controlling force. You should fill it with your intellectuo-intuitional strength. If you sit idle some other demonic non-spiritual theories can become active and occupy that vacuum." (PNS-18) So in His above teaching, Baba is warning us that if dedicated margiis do not come forward then another factional tribe will fill that spot. Previously there was the switchover from B to H, from Sarvatmananda to Rudrananda. And now, if we are not careful, the EC bandits-- who are really nothing more than the puppets of Sarvatmananda-- will converge on scene. Indeed already they are doing so.
To gain momentum and garner support for their groupist ploy, the EC Parade took a holiday out to a delightful hill station. That is, last weekend (April 21-23) they had their premier get together in picturesque Lonavla-- situated about 60 km from Pune (110 km from Mumbai on the Mumbai-Pune Highway). In total they had around 90 attendees from 7 states of India, plus a couple overseas were also present. As you might have guessed, at their fancy retreat site they sat at round tables, ate tasty treats, and made their grand plan to revolutionize AM, placing themselves at the top, posing as being the great benefactors of all. And in their grandios manner they delivered their sermon of dharma:
"The appeal is being made to all WTs and margiis that they should develop moral courage to stand for the ideological values." (Point #6 of the recent EC Resolutions)
Here above the top dogs of the EC forum like Dr. Jitendra Singh are placing a call to everyone: All should follow in EC's courageous footsteps and follow dharma. So see their haughtiness and arrogance-- when in actuality their proclamation about dharma is nothing but a farce. Because all are aware that for years and years to keep his image high and mighty Dr. Jitendra Singh was a goody-goody lackey for Sarvatmanandji and Rudranandji. Those days Dr. Jitendra Singh did not make a peep about any injustice. He was aware that BP rights were being dismantled and scriptural distortions were being executed etc, but for those entire 16 years the 'great dharmika' Dr. Jitendra Singh was as well-behaved and quiet as a mouse-- he kept mum out of fear that he would lose his chair and respect. But now-- suddenly-- when the winds have changed, the EC cronies led by Dr. Jitendra Singh, among others, are standing on their mountain of fake courage and proudly espousing the glories of dharma and boldly condemning the evils of groupism. Now that it is in vogue to speak like this. But about their own black history of the past 16 years, they keep absolutely mum-- secretly hoping that no one is looking. Indeed they do not express one iota of repentance about that.
There are at minimum two more sub-plots from the recent EC gathering in beautiful Lonavla. 1. To make it look like they have lots of followers and supporters etc, they made a blanket invitation to everyone to 'Come and Enjoy'. And not only that, Dr. Jitendra Singh-- rented out comfy guest hotel suites for all attendees and he paid 100% of everyone's food and lodging. So just as various crooked politicians and conniving capitalists do this very trick to make a show of support, similarly the EC team borrowed this page from their playbook. And they paid for everyone to boost their following. At the same time no should get befooled and think that Dr. Jitendra Singh is generous in the wallet-- never. Because with his overseas millions and Australian bank accounts etc, for him to spend a few Indian rupees for hotels and food is a paltry amount for him. So he did it-- all to enhance his prestige etc. 2. The second point of note is that at the culmination of this holiday retreat, EC unveiled their sporty new name: 'EPC', meaning 'Effecting Progressive Change'. So either they were not progressive earlier or now they are attempting to befool others that they have become progressive. Anyway it is all for show-- what more need to be said.
While their list of resolutions is somewhat long-- 21 points total-- the whole thing reads as if EC, excuse me E-P-C, is already the embodiment of dharma and everyone else needs to catch up to their great pace. But all along they were the yes-men and foot soldiers to so many groupist injustices. And by following the orders of Sarvatmanandji or Rudranandji, they would shut the mouth of any margii who tried to oppose those wrong-doings. In this horrendous way, these EC scoundrels victimised so many innocent margiis. And still today they are not coming forward to admit their mistake. Another outcome of their EC conference is that they have opted to hold these holiday meetings 3-4 times a year; AND, they plan to send their resolutions to the Purodha Board and have a sitting with them about the resolutions in the future. But anyone with any sense knows full well that it will be a cold day in hell before the Purodha Board sits down with EPC t o discuss their resolutions. That means it will never happen; just EPC is living in their dreamland. By reviewing this entire matter it becomes more and more evident that the EPC people are nothing but a bunch of jackals posing as lions. They have not an ounce of courage or bravery inside. Just they are howling political opportunists.
Here is Baba's strict warning about EC / EPC type of people. Baba says, "Those who are intentionally misleading common people should be exposed so that they do not get any further scope to exploit the innocent masses." (PNS-15) Thus everyone should be alert; we must not allow any in AM to get duped by the false glory of the EC or EPC or whatever they claim themselves to be. Because, after all, the so-called leaders of the EC are nothing but the pawns of Sarvatmanandji in the wrestling match against the crooked Rudrananda. All are just hungry for power. There is nothing ideological in their dealing.
By Baba's divine grace those who truly follow His guidelines are the real benefactors of society-- and they alone will lead the humanity ahead. Baba says, "Those who move along this path [of true spirituality] make their lives glorious and effulgent, and their sweet radiance illumines and glorifies all other minds in this harmonious universe...On these people alone can all of humanity rely. Their victory is assured." (NH-LOI, Disc 2) Namaskar, Pramod
The EC / EPC faction ridiculously thinks that by collecting all the various groupist camps and making one big pow-wow gathering then unity will be achieved. This is their deluded vision. Here Baba guides us that when the dogmatic religions of groups get together then they cannot create unity. Baba says, Question: "How far is the unification of all religions possible?" "Answer: The question of the unification of religions does not arise." (TK-1, Q & A #49) So just as bringing all the dogmatic religions under one roof will not lead to the establishment of unity or dharma, similarly bringing all the poisonous groups together will not have a righteous outcome. Unity cannot be achieve in this way. It is just like if one were to bring patients together who are suffering from various diseases like AIDS, Cancer, Syphilis, Tuberculosis, Malaria. Then exposing those sick patients to each other will not cure them. That will not make them disease-free. Rather they will get more sick and suffer from new infections and ultimately die a horrible death. Likewise bringing together all the groupist factions will not bring any positive result--it will just lead to more groupism and more splintering. The diseases of groupism will multiply. So this is yet another ludicrous assessment by the EC. Ultimately by seeing their stated resolutions perhaps we should just say that EC stands for 'Endless Chaos'-- nothing more. Their faulty ways will never bring any positive result. Only more and more groupism.
************************************************* Origin of Polo
Baba says, "The well-known modern game of polo originated in Manipur's Kobe Valley...Originally, only royal princes used to play the horse-riding game of polo. For that a very hard ball was needed. The kind of bamboo that was used, used to grow in the eastern portion of Rarh, in slightly salty soil. Still today the best bamboo for making polo balls grows in the Uluberia suvdivision of Howrah District and in Midnapore District's Tamluk subdivision." (SC-3, p. 71)
