PP Election: Cheap Psychology

Date: Sun, 08 Mar 2009 23:06:51 -0000 To: Subject: PP Election: Cheap Psychology From: RB_MAURYA@ecectronic... Baba
'The Divine Call'
"Yuga'nterar tamasa' na'shite, a'lor jhalake esechile..." (PS 4718) Purport: Baba, in those dark days of old when the whole society was drowned in dogma and everyone was suffering in pain and agony, then in that desperate moment in a flash of lightening-- floating in the rhythm of dance-- You Yourself came showering Your grace to wipe away the age-old staticity. Baba, before Your auspicious arrival, in that bleak era there was no positive pulsation of life. Just there was sorrow and misery in every direction. Everyone was feeling tense and depressed-- sunk in the delusion of darkness. There was selfishness, in-fighting, and hatred all around. The earth was hopeless. Nobody had the courage or inspiration to shake the struggling humanity from its agonies. Nobody valiantly came forward and declared, 'Arise, awake, the new dawn has come! Get rid of all the dogma and follow the path of neo-humanism!' Nobody told like this. The scene was totally grim. Then suddenly, out of nowhere, by Your grace in one auspicious moment You Yourself came and told, 'Always keep one great philosophy in mind: There is only movement if one is progressing ahead towards towards divinity-- towards Supreme fulfillment, toward the Cosmic Hub'. In that auspicious hour, this was Your divine blessing. Baba, by Your grace Your victory chariot is fast moving ahead with its rattling sound, in the bhuloka, duloka, and triloka and in the infinity. Baba, Your divine vibration is reaching each and every corner of this vast cosmos. Without people's awareness the whole planet and the entire universe is being transformed in all the realms: physical, psychic, and spiritual. Baba, by Your grace You told everyone, 'In your frustration do not sit and cry in the depths of hell. Arise, awake, and follow the divine path. Human life is very valuable and you must not forget that Your goal is Parama Purusa.' Baba, this divine & eternal blessing You showered upon all. Baba, by Your grace You came wiped away all the staticity by showering Your divine effulgence... Note 1: Here below this following discourse expresses the conclusive idea of Baba's above Prabhat Samgiita. Baba says, "O human beings, you are fortunate. The clarion call of the Universal has reached you. Not only has the call come, but you are hearing it and it is vibrating in every cell of your body. Will you now lie in the corner of your house as an inert being and waste your time by clinging to old skeletons and bemoaning them? The Supreme Being is calling you in the roar of the ocean, in the thunder of the clouds, in the speed of lightning, in the meteor's flaming fires. Nothing good will come from idleness. Get up and awake the clouded chivalry of your dormant youth. It may be that the path is not strewn with flowers and that inferiority complex will be attempting to hold fast your each advancing step, but even then you have to proceed onwards tearing the shroud of darkness. You will tear the thick darkness of despair as you advance in the racing chariot radiant with the Sun's brilliance towards the attainment of the Supreme state." (SS-1) Hence those same divine ideas which Baba has graciously revealed in His various discourses are also present in Prabhat Samgiita. Those same ideas which He has given in prose He has also given in His music and poetry. The main difference then between His spoken discourses and Prabhat Samgiita is that Prabhat Samgiita is quite concentrated. Those teachings of Prabhat Samgiita are presented in quite a concentrated form-- such as in half a line or less, whereas in His discourses that same idea might be explained over the course of several pages or more. That is why without proper translations and purports, Prabhat Samgiita is mostly unintelligible.
Namaskar, The talk of the town among margiis from Bengal is that B group and EC are joining together to select their own potential PP. In a few lines I will tell who that PP is going to be, in case you haven't already heard. Those in the know clearly understand the political ploy involved in the selection. Once you hear who the person is & why he was selected, then you too will understand. Because beneath it all, this is just Sarvatmananda's latest attempt to increase the support base of his B group enterprise. Beyond that, there is no goodwill in his selection. Let it also be known that as a rule, our Marga does not at all appreciate the selection of thousands or even two or three PP Dadas. That will only further disintegrate the fabric of our AM society. So there are a multitude of issues involved.
There were lots of table-talk discussions about whom B group would select as PP. Many were chanting the name of Sarveshvara'nanda. He was the early favourite and unofficial PP for B group. But then Sarvatma'nanda said that this would not achieve the desired effect. This would not attract a wide array of people as he would not be palatable to non-Bengalis nor would he attract family people. Then Sarvatmananda explained who is the PP candidate that will best befool the maximum number of people. After hearing the case, all agreed. The person whom Sarvatmananda and Co. have chosen to be their separate PP Dada is Family Acarya Kinshukji. Of course we all know respected Kinshukji to be a person of dignity, integrity and honesty. In individual life, he is quite fine. So we have no gripe with Kinshukji per se as a human being. But we can all see how Sarvatmananda's strategy is totally obvious and easy to see through. He thinks that by selecting a family margii to be PP then all the family margiis will join his camp / faction. It is as simple as that. He is trying trying to lure family people into his group through one common political ploy. Politicians in the east and west regularly resort to such tactics in order to draw votes. They select someone purely based on their caste, community, gender etc. We will further explore this cheap psychology in this letter.
Since 1990, B group has single-handedly authored and invented so many ways of destroying margii rights. They ruined the BP and ACB systems, distorted Baba's discourses, used expulsion as a weapon, pushed their agenda of Bangalisation, infused the dogma of Mahaprayan, and so many other scandalous activities. And through it all Respected Kinshukji has kept quiet. That does not mean that Kinshukji agrees or disagrees with what B group has done - all it means is that he has remained silent. That is the fact. If Ac Kinshukji was a fighter for margiis rights, then Sarvatmananda would have passed him by. But since Kinshukji is a respected family person who has a reserved disposition, Sarvatmananda has made him the choice to be PP.
But again, this is just a common political tactic to create supporters based on cheap sentiment. Political master-minds often choose candidates that will enhance their voter base by selecting them exclusively on reasons of race, gender, caste - irregardless of their readiness for the post. But common people can recognise such cheap strategies and are often offended and insulted that political carnivores think they can dupe them in this way. Perhaps the most famous recent example of this is was with the US Presidential election. When the Republican party saw that Hillary Clinton would be missing from the Democratic ticket, then the Republicans selected a woman, Sarah Palin, as their vice-presidential candidate. They thought that by this way all the women in the country would support their ticket. But this cheap plan totally backfired and they got walloped in the election. Women were infuriated and insulated that the Republicans thought that they would lure them by choosing any type of woman to be vice-president, no matter how ill-prepared she may be for the job. So you see this is just a common political ploy. And this has been used in so many lands and regions. Unfortunately, this is the latest type of trick that Sarvatmananda has up his sleeve. But making a family person as PP will not cure B group of all its inherent ills, and family people will not go flocking to their petty camp. Nor should any margii flock to H group regime. Our aim is to create a unified AM society based on ideology, not any cheap, limited socio-sentiment etc.
Here again let me reiterate that Family Acarya Kinshukji is a man of great respect and ability. In individual life he is exemplary. Just like how Baba has told again and again that in individual life Mahatma Gandhi was also great. That has merit. Let us again remember that there must not be thousands of PP. Having more than one PP Dada does not go in the favour of our Marga. But our next PP must be a person who will take charge and adamantly and loudly ban all groupist activities. To date, this has not been respected Kinshukji's approach. That is why margiis are totally rejecting Sarvatmananda's plan and margiis are insulted that Sarvatmananda thinks that they (margiis) are so naive and stupid that he can pull the wool over their eyes with this simple political ploy. Just selecting a family person to be PP will not automatically bring all family margiis into the B brigade. This is the wake-up call that Sarvatmananda & Co. are going to get.
Firstly, there should only be one PP in AM society. And that PP must be a person who will eradicate all groupism and not be a silent and passive witness as the late Shraddhananda was when he was PP. Soon certainly our Marga will have such a PP. In the meantime, no margii is going to be duped by Sarvatmananda's & EC's beguiling approach to secure margiis on their side by selecting a family man as PP. That just will not work. Our choice for PP cannot stand on the toothpicks of class, race, gender, or caste etc. The choice for PP must be based purely on appropriateness for the post. No other qualification or external characteristic is needed.
By Baba's grace, our Marga family has the inherent vivek to no longer be duped by Sarvatmananda's trickery. He has done hell in our Marga and he is constantly devising ways that he can continue to rule AM through tactical maneuvers. Now all recognise his attempts as being purely political shenanigans. Baba says, "O human beings, build the social structure considering the needs of humanity. Do not try to do anything for your petty personal and group interests, because whatever little you want to do with your limited outlook cannot last. The cruel touch of time will annihilate your aspirations into an oblivion that you cannot comprehend." (AMIWL-1, 'The Evolution of Society') Namaskar, Rambabu
****************************************** Relation between Breathing and Thinking Capacity
Baba says, "The process of breathing has a great influence on the human mind and self, or soul. Suppose a person is running: his breathing immediately becomes heavy. In that condition he cannot think properly; the sensory organs such as the tongue, nose, etc., cannot function properly, and as a result one's perception is impaired." "Moreover, the process of breathing, depending upon whether the breath is flowing through the right nostril or the left nostril or both nostrils, influences people in various ways." (NSS, '95 ed., p.25)
