Re: I do not Belong to any Group

From: "R&L Pucillo" To: Subject: Re: I do not Belong to any Group Date: Thu, 05 Jun 2008 23:29:35 +0000 Baba "Pathe pathe ghuri toma'rei smari, dekhite na' pa'i keno bolo..." (PS 2904) Purport: Baba, I am wandering around on the path thinking about You. In my journey of life I am moving ahead, ensconced in Your divine ideation. By Your grace my life is passing in this way. Baba, even then I am not getting You. I am putting forth effort in my sadhana but I am not getting Your close proximity nor Your sweet, divine touch. Baba, I am not feeling Your intimate closeness in the way I desire; please tell me why that is. Baba, Your karuna'* is my sadhana. When You shower Your grace compassion then my sadhana is blissful-- otherwise my sadhana is dry. So I am just depending on You completely. When You shower Your karuna' then that is my sadhana. Baba, why are You playing this type of liila with me-- why are You not always coming in close to me in my meditation. Why do You remain so elusive. Baba, You are the Goal of everyone's dhyana. You are the Ista. Baba, You are the dearest One; You are the terminus. In everyone's mind and heart, You are the most venerable one: You are varaniiyo. Baba, until one gets You, they cannot be satisfied. You are the eternal and infinite Source. Only You can satiate everyone's heart. That is why everyone loves You and yearns for You. Baba, please bring complete satiation to everyone's mind; please light the lamp of devotion. Sometimes my sadhana goes up; sometimes it goes down. Baba, please light the lamp of devotion in my heart so that it remains eternally effulgent. Baba, although I want You to come close and sit and talk with me so I can see You, although this is my desire but You do not come close. You are not coming according to my desire. Baba, in that case, go on playing Your divine liila; there is no harm. Because by Your grace whenever I call You-- I easily get You in the deep core of my heart. By Your grace I see that You are sitting there smiling. For that very reason, I have surrendered all my love unto You. It is Your grace. Baba, I want You-- You are my dearmost. Please make me ensconced in the depths of Your ideation, eternally forever and ever. Baba, with Your ahetuki krpa, please shower me with Your parabhakti...
Namaskar, Everyone knows that in AM we are to follow Baba. His way is our way-- not any groupist, double-groupist, or triple-groupist approach. Unfortunately, one new syndrome has sprouted in AM where some are claiming, 'I do not belong to any group', but in truth they are double-groupists or even multi-groupists. How? A person says, 'I do not belong to any group', yet during AM programs they read out Fake Ananda Vaniis from all the groups. Thus they are double groupists because they are following the dogma of two different groups. Here is another example. A person says, 'I do not belong to any group', yet they attend both the dogmatic Mahaprayan program as well as the dogmatic Jamalpur tiirtha program. Hence once again they are double groupists because they are following the dogma of two different groups. Of course, we should not follow the dogma of any group, but now what is happening is that in the name of not being part of any group, some are following the dogmas of all the groups. In this latest schema then, a person can be a double, triple, or even multi-groupist. That is the unfortunate way things are unfolding at present in our Marga.
The same tragedy befell dogmatic religious worshipers in India. As more and more deities came into being, simple worshipers began honoring all the gods. In the beginning people were following Lord Shiva, just like Ananda Margiis were meditating on Baba. But then as time went on, more and more deities came into being and those worshipers of Lord Shiva began incorporating all those dogmatic deities into their prayer system, until there became an entire plethora of gods and goddesses: So many idols, so many pujas, so many deities etc. This type of dogmatic pluralism is the chief downfall of religion in India. And Baba strongly condemns this faulty approach in His discourse, 'Omnkarnath & Ista Mantra'. In a strikingly similar pattern, in the beginning Ananda Margiis were only following Baba. There was no question of doing anything else. But after 1990 groupism started and ever since more and more groups and sub-groups are sprouting up-- just like mushrooms in a cow field. In that event, some naive and some opportunistic people have begun following the dogmatic ways of multiple groups. They attend a groupist seminar here, participate in someone else's Mahaprayan program, read another group's Fake Ananda Vanii, go to yet another rally, support one group's puppet BP candidate, and so many things they are doing. They are following all the groupist dogmas-- they are double or even triple-groupists-- yet all the while proclaiming, 'I do not follow any group'.
This tragic phenomenon of double groupism and multi-groupism must be completly eliminated from our Marga. Single groupism must also be stopped. But this double and triple groupism is even worse as it reinforces all the dogmas: Scriptural distortions, Fake Ananda Vaniis, MPD, tiirthas, wrong seminar system, and so much other nonsense. So when anyone says, 'I do not belong to any group', then we must watch them carefully and see if in actuality they are really a double or triple groupist. Unfortunately, this is the way things have been taking shape lately.
By Baba's grace, all groupism-- single, double, triple, and multi-- will vanish from our Marga in the wake of following one pristine, neo-humanistic ideology. Baba says, "Universalism does not depend upon any relative factor, hence it is free from the vices of ism. Ism thrives on the angle of group interest...Those who are eager to establish peace should shake off [groupism] and other allied isms." (PNS-4) Namaskar, Ramakrishna
****************************************** Eternal Source of Energy
Baba says, "Because each and everybody in this universe gets energy from Parama Purusa, He is the Supreme Source of energy." "This earth and all the other planets and satellites of this solar system get their energy from the sun. The sun is the source of their energy. But He is the source of the sun's energy. And that's why He is jvalantam." "And that's why I have said that there won't be any thermal death of this universe. Because He is jvalantam, He is present, and He will be present forever. So there won't be any shortage of energy in this cosmic system, though there may be a shortage of energy in some particular portion of the earth or the cosmos." (AV-3, p. 26-27)
