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

From: "Karma Rasa" To: AM-GLOBAL Subject: Re: Proof of Distortion in New Book: AV 11-12 Date: Wed, 01 Oct 2008 23:44:38 +0000 Baba "Eso tumi a'ma'r ghare, baso hiya'r a'sane..." (P.S. 906) Purport: O' my dearmost Baba, please come to my humble abode and sit in the inner core of my heart. For ages and ages, I have been longing for You. Baba, in one lonely place in my mind I have prepared a thousand petal lotus for You to sit-- and I have decorated it with the love of my heart. Baba, by Your grace for such a long time I have been coming and going onto this dusty earth. In Your system of brahmacakra there is no leisure time for taking rest-- because those who have come they will have to go, and those who have gone they will have to come. So there is no period of rest in Your ongoing cycle of brahmacakra. Always one is either coming or going. Baba, by Your grace, in one golden dawn, my spiritual journey started-- in my mind, in my mind. Baba, while moving towards You on this spiritual path, from time to time I go astray and I lose the way. I am incapable of walking properly, & that is why I go off the path. Please forgive me; and please bless me by showering a wee-bit of Your cosmic grace & bring me back onto the right path. Baba, please come in my heart. In my Guru cakra I have prepared a one-thousand petal lotus for You in my mind. Please grace me by coming...
== PROOF OF DISTORTION IN NEW BOOK: AV 11-12 (2008) == ~ Part 3 ~
Note: The links to the first two letters in this series appear below for your easy access & reference. Namaskar, "Meticulous efforts were made to authenticate all discourses of part 12." And then they go on to say that they checked everything, wherever possible, using the original cassette. These words are printed in the 'Publisher's Note' of the brand-new 2008 edition of Ananda Vacanamrtam 11-12. Such is the high-sounding, definitive proclamation given by the Tiljala Publications Department. And if the above were true, then what great news it would really be. Then two things would result: (1) We could all have implicit trust and faith in the Tiljala Publications Department and believe that really they are properly rendering and doing justice to Baba's divine discourses. (2) The books we buy would really be proper; such publications would accurately represent Baba's original words. Unfortunately, the above statement--"Meticulous efforts were made to authenticate all discourses of part 12"-- is not at all true. Because if it were true, then there would not be piles and piles of easily correctable errors in each and every discourse. Yet that is what we see: Gross errors on every page. Here in this letter is more clear-cut proof how the 2008 edition of Ananda Vacanamrtam part 11-12 is laced with countless cases of distortion. Best will be if nobody buys this book in protest. That will force them to either make the books proper or release the cassettes so more capable people can take up the job. Because our collective goal, of course, is not to blame anyone per se, but rather to ensure our AM books are pristine and pure.
Let us remember, let us never forget, that the chieftain behind the Tiljala Publications team is the very same person who: (a) Falsely inserted the phrase 'Translated from the Original Bengali' into so many books, (b) invented the Fake Ananda Vaniis, (c) intentionally deleted the paragraph about margii rights from the AM Revolution discourse, (d) made the Fake BP Manual (1997), (e) injected so many incidents of Bangalisation, and (f) did so many other obscene distortions to AM. Such is Sarvatmananda's known history. And now, to try and erase the above from the minds of the people, the Tiljala Publications team is posturing in such as way as to portray themselves as being the real well-wishers of AM books and Baba's teachings. As if they are going to preserve everything perfectly for ages and ages. However, to do great work in AM, it demands sincerity and earnestness, and not just a superficial desire to show oneself as being great.
As we know, most of the discourses in Ananda Vacanamrtam part 12 were given in English during Baba's historic tour through Europe in 1979. We also know that much of the western world has been trapped under the dogma of Christianity which has infused a very negative 'sinner's psychology' unto the people. The entire Christian world believes that they have been born in sin. And they have imposed this fear complex upon hundreds of millions of people, even upon atheists and agnostic. That is the great gift-- i.e. the awful dogma-- of Christianity. To save the people and undo that dogma, on Baba's historic tour, He beautifully addresses this issue and assures everyone again and again that we have a relationship of love and affection with the Supreme Father, and one must not think that 'I am a sinner, I am a sinner'.
Now let's take a look at some of the very basic and fundamental errors from two published discourses of AV-12: 'The Starting Point and the Last Point', and 'The Only Cult'. For instance, here are some clear cut errors from the published discourse, 'The Starting Point and the Last Point'.
"...if you do not obey Him you will go to Hell".
But that is not at all what Baba spoke. In this section Baba is clearly telling that certain dogmatic religions project a fear complex on the people and their scriptures send a menacing message. BABA ACTUALLY SPOKE:
"...if you do not do it you will go to Hell."
So here the "it" refers to what those dogmatic scriptures say to do. And Baba goes on to say that "these scriptures are the worst enemy of human society". But the Tiljala Publications crew printed something different. Despite, their "meticulous efforts", the Tiljala Publications team could not properly convey what Baba spoke. And instead, they invented their own words, which do not at all sound like what Baba spoke, and distorted Baba's discourse by wrongly printing, "...if you do not obey Him you will go to Hell".
And this above distortion is not an isolated instance, in this very short 2-page discourse, 'The Starting Point and the Last Point', there are many errors: [2] THE TILJALA TEAM WRONGLY PRINTED: "Now there are so many controllers in different fields and different spheres of our life. There are so many..." BABA ACTUALLY SPOKE: "Now in different spheres, there are so many controllers, in different spheres of our life, there are..." Thus in the above sentence, they switched the ordering of every word, completely changing the phrasing as well as the meaning of Baba's original discourse. Plus they injected some of their own words as well. Then there are these sentences that are also wrongly presented. [3] THE TILJALA TEAM WRONGLY PRINTED: "...because in that case AN order is followed or obeyed due to a fear complex" BABA ACTUALLY SPOKE: "...because in that case THE order is followed or obeyed due to a fear complex" And here is another example. [4] THE TILJALA TEAM WRONGLY PRINTED: "we won't allow any entity" BABA ACTUALLY SPOKE: "...we won't allow any SUCH entity" So Baba's discourse is completely pointed and moving in a particular direction where each and every word holds deep meaning, yet the Tiljala Publications team moves away from Baba's actual words, on each and every page. And that adversely affects the intention and accuracy of the discourse. Amazingly, this is all done after the Tiljala teams gives us assurance and brags how they have made "meticulous efforts". But if this is the best they can do, it is scary. Because each and every page has distortions. Remember that this is the third letter of this series and there are margiis saying that 20 more letters can be written about the defects of this one publication, Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 11-12 (2008). Here is another example from a different discourse, 'The Only Cult', printed in the same book, AV-12. [5] THE TILJALA TEAM WRONGLY PRINTED: "A weak boy, or say a weak girl, physically weak or mentally weak or even weak in SPIRITUAL VITALITY, has also got the birthright to attain salvation." BABA ACTUALLY SPOKE: "A weak boy, or say a weak girl, physically weak or mentally weak or even weak in SPIRIT OF VITALITY, has also got the birthright to attain salvation." So once again, what the Tiljala team has written is entirely wrong and portrays a vastly different meaning. Here Baba is not saying that anyone is weak in the spiritual sphere, Baba is merely saying that if one has less vitality, but in their sloppy way of printing discourses, the Tiljala crew could not properly print Baba's discourse.
The Tiljala team has the original cassette; they have money; they have personnel; they have everything, but they are unable to properly print AM books. Rather they distort every publication. And on the top, they are unwilling to share the original cassette with interested and dedicated margiis, as if margiis do not deserve to hear Baba's words or as if margiis are not to be trusted with Baba's things. But the real reason, is that the Tiljala team wants to control the situation and be able to make as many mistakes as they like and make as many distortions as they like, without anyone else knowing. Otherwise what is the need to be so tight-fisted with Baba's discourses. In this digital era it is so easy to share audio files. But Tiljala never makes such an offer. Rather they continue to condemn the margiis as not being worthy. Plus Tiljala wants to be the only ones to make money from selling Baba's books. And they charge a high price as well. That is why the only answer is to NOT BUY THE BOOK. Do not buy Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 11-12 (2008). In Tiljala's mind, only money talks. Only then will they stop distorting Baba's discourses.
Here Baba gives the only solution about stopping the sinful misdeeds of those purposely distorting Baba's holy discourses. Remember, these are not simple mistakes, but rather gross errors part of a 20 year period of scriptural distortion. So we must pay heed to Baba's below mandate. Baba says, "To solve this cause of sin, the intellectual approach does not work. The dogmatic-minded people, the traditional people, are neither human beings nor animals. They do not listen to reason. They are to be struck, and those who do the striking are sadvipras. The striking is to be done with a hammer! They are to be hit not with a hammer, but with a sledge hammer. " (AFPS-6, 'Three Causes of Sin') Thus we must take a strong hand against Sarvatmananda's ways of distortion. Otherwise he will go on and on making one mistake and distortion after another in Baba's books. For everyone's reference here are earlier letters on this important topic.
We must not allow more distorted books like Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 11-12 (2008) to come into circulation. Nor should we purchase such faulty books. That is the only way. Baba says, "The scriptures containing spiritual injunctions must be totally flawless." (NSS) Namaskar, Karma Rasa
Kirit Dave of California is Sarvatmananda's right-hand man in printing these distorted books. All in all, Kirit is like a simple person who knowingly is the friend of a confirmed thief, even then the simple person does not like to leave the company of that thief, because he is a friend etc. Such a weak-minded, simple person is like Karna of the Mahabharata. Despite his valor he supported the notorious villain Duryodhana and invited all kinds of tragedies in his life. Such is Kirit's fate. Sarvatmananda does not want to fix anything and he has stooges in place to carry out his agenda. If such simple people help, then those villains get a lot of power; Kirit is doing misdeeds and appeasing the public and duping the common people by continuing to participate in the printing of distorted books like AV 11-12 (2008). Indeed, Kirit is the main mouthpiece bragging again and again how the new books are perfect. In this way, Sarvatmananda has many people who are sincere but blind. All in all, they are wasting their time in this ephemeral world; and the well-intentioned desire of such simple people like Kirit will never be fulfilled. It will remain in dream only, so long as they live under the spell of Sarvatmananda.
****************************************** Maharshi Patanjali: Incorrect
Baba says, "According to Patanjali, yoga is the suspension of mental propensities. But this interpretation of yoga by Maharshi Patanjali is not accepted by Tantra. Tantra says, the unification of jiiva'tma' with Parama'tma' is yoga. Sam'yoga means "unification", and yoga ityukto means "known as yoga". So here Tantra has moved a step further." Patna, 2nd September, 1978
