In Him,


It Is Baba's Book, Not...

From: "Mohini Ghosh" To: Subject: It Is Baba's Book, Not... Date: Sun, 01 Mar 2009 23:13:48 +0530 Baba "A'mi toma'y khunjechi girigucha'y, khunjechi an'ute an'ute..." (P.S. 2250) Purport: Baba, I have searched You in the caves of the mountains and in the nooks and corners of this entire universe. I have been searching You from this holy place to that holy place-- from this tiirtha to that tiirtha. In this way my time got wasted. And after a lot of searching now I am completely fatigued and tired. I did not get You anywhere; because of this my heart remains dry. You continue to remain distant from me. Baba, all my longings will be quenched, my whole heart will be satisfied, only when I will receive You in the deep core of my mind and heart, with my full existence, with full realisation. Baba, I do not know the reason why are You hiding Yourself. Why do You make me cry and why do You not like to understand my yearning and longing. In spite of this irony of Your not caring, I will go on searching You and I must get You. You must get held and that will only happen when You will grace me...
Namaskar, As many are aware, Baba made one historic education tour in 1984 when He graciously performed more than a dozen DMC's across northern India & the following is the story of that time.
When Baba did His grand tour and conducted so many DMC's in Hindi speaking areas in 1984, then that time Baba directly gave important guidelines to all the samaj secretaries of various samajas which He visited. Because it was an educational tour and wherever Baba went He taught the local samaj leaders about their samaj. On His various field walks He told about the history, culture, and archeology of so many temples, churches, forts, and old buildings. This was part of His pre-planned tour: During field walks He would visit so many historical and archeological sites. And always local margiis accompanied Baba on these walks and got the blessed opportunity to hear Baba talk about all these places and much more. Sure enough the Baba's DMC discourses and general darshans of this same 1984 tour which were printed in Subhasta Samgraha parts 16-17 and Ananda Vacanamrtam part 22, respectively. This was given. In addition, it was also His planning to make the tour and visitation of many historical sites. And in that way Baba gave in-depth and elaborate explanations of those sites to the Margiis and samaj leaders present.
One other important point in all of this is that Acarya Raghunathji was assigned the specific duty of taking notes of all Baba's talks that time. So this type of program was going on during that historic tour because after all this was Baba's usual way. Means not just on this tour but throughout His life wherever Baba lived and wherever He visited always He told all the histories, stories, tales, factual analysis and so many things about the surrounding area wherever He was. And these things Baba told to the local Margiis and attending Acaryas-- whoever was present. When living in Jamalpur, when touring Berlin Sector, when touring the Philippines, indeed all the time this was happening. So naturally also then on His grand 1984 tour of Hindi speaking areas Baba gave countless talks about the history and archeology of those areas.
So on His tour Baba visited hundreds of archeological buildings that were hundreds and even thousands of years old. Places that had a rich history of deep archeological importance such as temples, tombs, mosques, forts, monuments, historical buildings, etc. And Baba revealed the never-before-known history during His tour which was noted down. But the tragedy is that all those charming tales and hidden facts which Baba graciously revealed, all those things never got printed in Baba's name. Never.
In contrast though, in the Prout books so many talks given on field walks related with Bengalistan have been added after 1990. So why did Bangalistan get the upper hand while all the talks from Baba's tour of Hindi speaking areas get completely neglected. Why didn't the Hindi area historical research and Baba's other direct guidelines, why didn't those get placed in book form in the name of Baba. Because after all, on this long tour of 4 months penance, thousands and thousands of pages worth of Baba's valuable teaching was given. Yet somehow it was deliberately eft off the shelf of Baba's library.
Here then is the missing link: the answer why all those talks of Baba never got printed in His name. For that historic 1984 tour, Baba gave the duty to Ac Raghunathji to collect and manage the note-taking and publication of those talks. So Ac Raghunathji organised all the talks given by Baba during the tour. This he did from 1984 up to 1993 and in his own way Ac Raghunathji was trying to get the Publications Department to print these things. But B group Kingpin Sarvatmanandaji pushed back the work. No doubt Dada Sarvatmanandaji did not cancel the project completely. Means he did not throw it into the river like some crude dictatorial madman. Sarvatmanandaji is more crafty than that. Instead, he added one of his patented devious twists to the situation. Sarvatmanandaji demanded that the book should come, BUT in the name of Ac Raghunathji-- not Baba. So that was the point.
Reason being Dada Sarvatmananda wanted to undermine Baba's Hindi discourses-- he wanted to discredit them as he did not want to highlight anything other than Bengali culture. So all Baba's talks about Hindi speaking areas, Sarvatmananda wanted to push them down into the mud. And what better way to effectively do this than to take away Baba's name from those discourses and instead assign them to someone else-- like Raghunathji. Because whatever words come from Sadguru Baba, those words are treated as divine. Nobody can compare with BABA. So by manipulating the situation and instead crediting Ac Raghunathji, and not Baba, for giving all those talks, that was one way of undermining Baba's words about those Hindi speaking samaj areas. And that is exactly what Dada Sarvatmanandji wanted to do. To crush the existence and push down the validity of Hindi speaking areas. And in fact he did like that. Because the book of history did in fact get printed in Acarya Raghunathji's name and still today it remains like that. About this book more is told below.
First though, with regards to Acarya Raghunathji, all we can say is that his position was like one bootlicker that time. That was why he did not adequately oppose Sarvatmanandaji's fraudulent scheme. And in the end Ac Raghunathji actually thought that this was alright. Because after all the book was put in his name and that way he got the credit and respect for that. So that was Ac Raghunathji's way in all of this, and to this day when he is organisational president still he has not come forward to correct this thing. That is the proof that he approves of the whole situation.
But truly speaking those are all Baba's direct talks. And anyone who is at all familiar with Baba's style of discourse will easily understand that all those words belong to our Revered Baba, and not to Ac Raghunathji. So it is a terrible wrongdoing that the book was done in a different way. It got titled as 'P.R. Sarkar on History' and the author's name is there in bold print: Acarya Raghunath. That is the tragedy. Because in this way, who can understand that this is actually Baba's book? Nobody. Because the title of the book itself makes it look like Ac Raghunathji is writing about Shrii Sarkar's ideas on history. When in actuality those are all Baba's discourses. Altogether Sarvatmananda has created a big mess in Baba's scripture in order to prove Bengali superiority. This way the poison of fanaticism has destroyed the sanctity of Baba's discourses and all the while Bengali superiority has been injected unjustly. The whole scene is intolerable and that is why I am not willing to remain quiet and accept things as they are. Here then I kindly and respectfully request Margiis and Wts to come forward and help restore the sancity of Baba words by ensuring that all His divine talks come in printed form and be published in His name alone. Namaskar, Mohini
Let me emphasize that the main concern is to publish each and every word of Guru's teaching irrespective of the language. Whatever Baba spoke-- regardless of which language-- everything should get proper place. We should not allow them to only give special consideration to those talks which Baba delivered in Bengali. Rather, all Baba's talks whether in Bengali, Hindi, English or any other language should be safeguarded, printed, and treated with the due respect and care. To give special priority to any single language at the expense of other languages or to print things in others' names is a misguided approach.
All of a sudden in the last year or so Sarvatmananda is trying to show himself as the great benefactor of Baba's discourses and he is trying to publish a book here and there. But this is all nothing but his calculated scheme to draw support for his group cause. Because if really Sarvatmananda was interested in safeguarding and printing Baba's ideology then (a) he would toss aside the Fake BP manual which he himself created in 1997, (b) he would stop making fake Ananda Vaniis, (c) he would inserted the deleted paragraph about margii rights into the AM Revolution discourse, (d) he would not say that all Baba only spoke in Bengali, (e) and there are so many nonsense things that Sarvatmananda has done to manipulate Baba's holy discourses. But none of those sinful deeds does Sarvatmananda like to correct. Just he is trying to paint himself in one new image as being the great benefactor of Baba's discourses. In the process a few B group minded souls may get convinced that really Sarvatmananda has turned over a new leaf, but those with a rational mind and a balanced perspective know that this is nothing but Sarvatmananda's latest schema to get groupist control. That is his way. That is why good margiis are not blinded by Sarvatmananda's ploy; they understand his real nature.
In His historic tour in 1984 Baba conducted so many DMC's in and around Hindi speaking areas of North India. The places He visited include: Deoghar, Patna, Bettiah, Gorakhpur, Varanasi, Allahabad, Kanpur, Agra, Delhi, Jammu, Bilaspur, Jaipur, Kota, Gwalior, Banda, Daltonganj, Ranchi, and Tatanagar.
********************************** So-Called Morality
These days in so-called advanced society, morality is used by capitalists for their selfish gain. In this way morality turns into selfish adjustment: 'You do not steal from my house and I will not steal from yours'. This is their type of morality. But the real sense of morality is that the mind should be merged in Cosmic ideation. To merge one's existence into Parama Purus'a. God-hood should be imposed with our each and every interaction in the world. That is the true morality. BABA says, "Moralism is not the unrealistic dream of the idealist, nor is it the means of fulfilling the mundane needs of the materialist. Rather it is something that provides people with the possibility of merging their mundane objectivity into supramundane Cognition." (HS-1, p. 8, Edn '99) Note: Another name of morality is moral principles, or yama and niyama in Sanskrit.
