Reminder Needed, Unfortunately

Date: Sun, 21 Sep 2008 23:12:48 To: From: Subject: Reminder Needed, Unfortunately Baba "Je ga'n a'ma'y shun'iyechile ta' ki bhola' ja'y kono jiivane..." (4502) Purport: Baba, by Your grace You made me listen to Your most divine and heart-rending song-- how can I ever forget that in this life. That song was most beautiful and melodious. Baba, You have graced me. O' my Beloved You are my most dear. Baba, You are present in each and every pulsation of my blood; You are my life-force. Baba, all the time-- in the rising and setting of the sun-- always You are along with me and You saturate the seven layers of my mind with Your divine bliss. Because of that I do sastaunga pranam to You with my body, mind, soul, & spirit-- with my entire existence. Baba, You are that eternal and most loving Entity. You were, You are, and You will remain in each and every molecule of this vast universe-- throughout all the lokas including the divine world. In anudhya'n* with ra'ga'tmika'** devotion, everyone dances encircling You. Baba, You have saturated my whole existence with Your infinite grace and bliss-- how can I ever forget that. Baba, You are so gracious. You are karuna' personified; Baba, You are the embodiment of love... * Anudhya'n= "When a sadhaka feels that the object of meditation is trying to escape, but as that Entity is the life and soul of the sadhaka he will not allow Him to escape. Thus the sadhaka runs after Him and tries to catch Him. This is called anudhyana." (APH-5) ** Ra'ga'tmika'= "Ra'ga'tmika' bhakti is the highest stage of pure devotion. In this type of devotion the ideation is, 'I love Parama Purus'a because it makes Him happy. I meditate on Him thinking that my meditation will bring joy to Him. This is my sole intention.' This is ra'ga'tmika' bhakti." (AMIWL-10)
Namaskar, It is unfortunate that still this matter has yet to be rectified, hence this reminder. By Baba's grace, we will be able to follow His will. As we all strive to overcome the troubles of groupism in our organization, AMPS, it has become quite evident that the Margi side of the organization needs to be built up. Baba has given a very significant role to Margis in guiding our AMPS organization. To this end He has created the Bhukti Pradhan post and the ACB (Advisory Committees and Boards). Through these two structures and other such positions, Margis have a very pivotal and formative role in determining the direction of AMPS. Guiding AMPS plans and programs. However, due to the negative, power-seeking aims of both B and H group leaders, Margis have been suppressed. And the important positions of BP and ACB which were given by Baba have been reduced to ashes. That means Margis' official channels for giving guidance--the BP and ACB posts--have been manipulated by both H and B groups and converted into mere puppet posts. Please see below for the critical details.
Love Personified Taraka Brahma Baba has given much importance to the Post of Bhukti Pradhan. Once Baba was praising the baby of one Margii family & while Baba was giving His blessing He said that one day this baby would become Bhukti Pradhan. So this incident expresses how much importance Baba gives to the post of Bhukti Pradhan. For this reason, when Caryacarya Part 1 (Hindi Edition) was printed in 1985 & English Edn 1986, the Bhukti Pradhan chapter was included in the beginning of the book as Chapter 4, immediately after the Acarya/Tattvika/Purodha Chapter. By giving BPs their proper place in Caryacarya, Baba's intention was that BPs would come with Acaryas & Purodhas in importance.
However, in the 1995 edition of Caryacarya I, B group leaders altered Caryacarya. And they mischievously moved the Bhukti Pradhan Chapter to Chapter 34, after the "Widow" Chapter. What an insult to the post of Bhukti Pradhan & bringing down the status of BP. That time Margiis when first saw this then who could tolerate this degradation. This disrespect to the post of Bhukti Pradhan is a glaring example of how low the post of BP is in the eyes of B and H group leaders. It is just like in a dogmatic Hindu society where the Harijans (sweepers, cobblers etc.) are treated as untouchables, worse than animals, yet they are part of Hindu society. It is so painful. This is just all dogma. But it seems that our B and H group leaders also think that Margiis are very low, just like untouchables. If this trend of seizing Margii rights continues then when the next edition of Caryacarya Pt.1 is printed, this Bhukti Pradhan chapter will be ousted from the book and thrown in the garbage bin. Because unfortunately the situation is moving in that negative direction.
And in the past such mischievous things were done to other publications such as the deleted paragraph from the AM Revolution discourse.
It should be noted here that the suppression of Margi rights was done first by B group. And then when H group got power, they followed the example of B group in heavily limiting Margi rights. On this point of repressing Margis, B and H groups are both involved-- each for their own selfish agenda.
For example, Dada Sarvatmananda altered the 1997 BP election manual so that Margis were completely under the control of WTs. If any Margi spoke out, they would be banned from participating in the BP elections. Prohibited from taking part either as candidate or as voter. And corruptions in the BP system were all put in print by Dada Sarvatmanandji in the altered '97 BP manual. Any rational person who reads this altered manual will immediately understand that the manual has been corrupted with a view to suppress Margis by making the BP into a puppet post. Due to the above corruptions in the BP manual, all know that good margiis were victimised for speaking out against injustices and as such were not allowed to serve as BP. Dada Sarvatmananda and his B group supporters initially did all these corrupt alterations in the past and now H group has adopted all those negative policies and procedures in order to amass more power.
Since the time of introduction of the BP system by Baba Himself, certain narrow-minded WTs had been searching for the opportunity to ruin this BP system. And step by step, take away all the rights of BPs, UBPs and general Margiis. Of course Baba also created the global ACB and PKB which have the right to guide and help in policy making in the entire AMPS organization up to the highest levels in the organization. The whole point being that the AMPS administration was designed to take advice from the ACB. Otherwise we can say that without the advice of the ACB, our AMPS administration will go in the wrong direction. And that's exactly what is happening today. Over the last decade and a half, B and H group leaders have abandoned the ACB system-- or more precisely they kidnapped it and stuffed it with their own people. They are not caring to take any advice from the regular Margiis. In result they have invited catastrophe in our holy AMPS. There is no need to give any example to prove this point. Baba has designed this AMPS structure so that there will always be strict vigilance from the Margiis side through the ACB and BP system. This is so that, in future negative persons who are not ready to follow AM ideology wholeheartedly must not get any opportunity or scope to hijack and misuse this vast organization AMPS.
Baba says, "Remember Him and march ahead-victory will be yours. You have not to be afraid of the worldly forces. Those who enjoy the highest force of Paramapurus'a are sure to succeed. Victory will surely be theirs. Victory to you all." (SS-19, p. 24) Namaskar, Sukhadeva Note: The following is Baba's original and true paragraph from His discourse "AM A Revolution about Margii rights. This is the paragraph which is now severely altered and taken out from Baba's books. Means Sarvatmananda and crew cut it out of numerous publications and replaced it with something totally fake. Now please examine the following and see in what way they distorted Baba's teachings in order to meet their own selfish agenda. (A) Here is the original and correct version of the paragraph about Margii rights: "Ananda Marga does not discriminate between a family person and a sannyasi (renunciate). The place given to a family person in our Marga is greater than the place given to a sannyasi, based on the reason that the former is not dependent on anyone for his or her maintenance, while the sannyasi has to depend on others. A family person is like a strong tree which is self-supporting, while the sannyasi is like the vine which twines around the tree for its support. A family person therefore deserves more respect than a sannyasi, according to the trend of thought in Ananda Marga. This itself is a revolutionary idea. No philosopher or thinker, whether eastern or western, had ever dared to declare a family person as deserving more respect than a hermit or a sannyasi. It needed the courage of a revolutionary to say so." (PNS-11, p.7) (B) Here is the distorted version of the paragraph about Margii rights: "Ananda Marga does not discriminate between a family person and a sannya'sii (renunciant). It required the courage of a revolutionary to say so." So it can be seen, very clearly that in the distorted version they kept only the first and last sentences of the paragraph from Baba's original discourse. And they cut the entire middle section which discusses Margii rights and guides how Margiis are to be given a proper place in our AMPS. Certainly everyone knows that this distortion was done by B group-- and Sarvatmananda took help from many H group Dadas who were his pawns those days. But B group was the instigator of all this negativity and H group Dadas followed along so as not to incur the wrath of Sarvatmananda. And also to get some prize (i.e Purodhaship) as well. But nowadays all the WT groups (the ruling H group, B group and even the sub-factions) are unfortunately of the same platform-- of not to grant Margiis Rights. Groupist Wts deem this paragraph as a threat to their prestige. When in reality this paragraph is truly a unifying force because with the cooperative efforts of Margiis and WT's our Marga will grow into a healthy society. According to Baba's teaching developing one human society is our goal, not dividing the entire family to pieces. We have to form one AM society which is like a monolithic rock. When our Guru, Ista, and Adarsha is one, then what is the question of division, repression, or suppression. BABA says, "The noble and righteous persons bound by fraternal ties, are eager to assert in one voice, with one mind, and in the same tune, that human society is one and indivisible." (PNS-7, p. 9)
******************************************** Importance of Padma'sana
Parama Purus'a BABA says, "Padma'sana [lotus posture] is just like a lotus in full bloom. Just as the roots and stem of the lotus remain under the water and only the leaves and flowers float about it-- and although it is born in the mind it sustains its love for the stars-- in the same way people sitting in this lotus posture and remaining in the world, can keep their minds above their mundane environment. That is why on the path of sa'dhana' this posture has tremendous importance." (NSS, '85, p. 241)
