Everyone Must Be Aware...

From: Amriteshwar Verma Date: Mon, 29 Jun 2009 07:31:52 To: AM-GLOBAL Subject: Everyone Must Be Aware... Baba PS Intro: This following song is about the establishment of a neohumanistic society. It describes how sadvipra samaj gets formed and what it will look like. Overall this song paints a picture of the upcoming dharma ra'j. "Jay jay jay toma'ri huk jaya..." (P.S. 4764) Purport: O' Divine Entity, O' Cinmay, O' Consciousness Personified who has graced me by coming in this brilliant, golden, effulgent dawn: Victory, victory, victory; victory unto You. Baba, You are everything. On this earth, we all are witnessing the magic that has happened; by Your divine grace our dream has come true today. Behold, this earth has been filled with sweetness, charm, and beauty. By Your grace there is no longer any dukha (sorrow) or santa'p (misery and suffering) anymore on this earth. There is only the incessant flow of a'nanda (bliss); it is flowing on and on continuously. Baba, by Your grace with the surge of devotion, the new blood & vigour has awakened; the paranoia, threat, and terror of exploitation is now completely gone. A new era of sentient peace has ultimately arrived, by Your grace. Baba, in the past by Your grace we planned that we will create a new heaven. And now that day has come. So according to Your direction we will go on doing Your work-- all the while singing Your song to please You. Our hands will do Your work and our heart will sing Your glory. In that way we will move. Baba, by Your grace we will pour abundant love on each and every unit being-- on all our brothers and sisters, on all the flaura and fauna. Baba, You have showered Your grace. That splendid day which we were dreaming about has arrived; all the cimmerian darkness has been dispelled. Now, by Your grace, the eastern horizon is filled with Your brilliant, divine effulgence. Baba, we will move on in the chorus of samgacchadhvam spirit-- keeping You in our heart and singing about Your glory...
Namaskar, In the height of this vaeshyan era, we should all take proper care not to be pulled into the pitfalls and degenerative ways of capitalistic life-- where those top capitalists try to pull all into their urn'a'ja'l (spider's web).
In His historic June 1990 discourse, Baba reveals how human life is highly significant and that we should always engage in positive thinking. Indeed Baba says, "The psychic potentialities of human beings are immense." (YP, '91, p.134) But some negative forces in society, have their own way of dealing.
As we have all seen, capitalism extends its hands in various ways to grip the whole society, especially the downtrodden communities and poor countries. Capitalist leaders make them into satellite groups so that capitalists can extract their vital resources. How is this done? In most of the cases we see that the imposition of sexually related things like vulgar cinema and negative crude dance, dramas, literature etc plays a huge role. All these things are slowly yet systematically getting more and more imposed by capitalists. And capitalists' only motive is to exploit and use the common public, the affected mass of that area, as the suppliers of raw materials. Especially nowadays, with the help of the Internet, capitalists have spread their negative message and tactics all around. It is saturating and asserting itself in all societies and innocent people have gotten seriously affected-- especially youths.
In India thousands of years ago the science of yoga was started by great rishis and yogis. But now if you go and see the "yoga" of European countries you will be surprised. It took a completely different shape. In the name of yoga all sorts of negative things are going on. Like the domination of sex into yoga, and yoga has become the fashion where all the prior standards of do's and don'ts, and the discipline of yoga is lost somewhere. So this journey of yoga started in India and reached to European countries and there it got metamorphosed. Means it got mixed with the color of pseudo-culture and materialism. And now this yoga has returned back to India in its new negative form; and now this new yoga is polluting Indian soil. So you see, everything is getting affected with this pseudo-culture. Indeed in the present day, the popularized yoga which is existing cannot be compared with that yoga which was originally introduced by the great sages and rishis. Rather it is far far degenerated from that and I feel it is a shame to call it yoga. And this imposition of culture is not only limited with yoga or dance.
Indeed all the media of entertainment has gotten completely polluted. Radio, television, dance, drama, literature, books, magazines, publications, all the sources of knowledge and entertainment have gotten a serious blow from this capitalistic exploitation. And Baba has termed this as pseudo-culture. In no uncertain terms, Baba warns us to be aware from this capitalistic monster-- pseudo-culture.
In Neo-humanism Baba teaches us how wealthy exploiters infuse pseudo-culture through the media of vulgar cinemas, movies, television, and internet programs etc to pollute the public mind, especially youths. When the public becomes intoxicated capitalists create the circumstances and take away all their resources. While the common public, indulging in vulgar activities, remains oblivious about how they are getting exploited by those capitalists. So due to the capitalists, these days anywhere you look, things are painted in the light of sex. If you go to purchase some products or anything, then you will see something of sexual import. It is everywhere.
This widespread disease is disturbing all the arenas of life. This following Baba's teaching gives enough light, and for our collective welfare we should understand this. Please think about this following Baba's quote where Baba explains how rich capitalists impose crude forms of entertainment on those whom they want to control. Baba says, "Suppose, a particular community has a high standard of arts (theatre, cinema, etc.) but the number of rich people in that community is comparatively few. On the other hand, the culture of another community is very undeveloped, but there is a greater number of wealthy people among them. Now, the latter [wealthy exploiter] group wants to maintain its exploitation over that [simple public] group having a more developed cultural heritage, and one of the ways to paralyze people in the psycho-economic sphere is cultural exploitation--to impose vulgar cinemas and dramas upon these good people." [NH-LOI] So in this above paragraph Baba is giving a clear picture how step by step rich people spread their net to exploit the common public by indulging them in degenerative entertainment, programs, movies etc. The story does not end here Baba describes more about how the human mind functions. And how the mind of the innocent common public gets easily attracted towards negative and crude sensual pleasures and entertainment. It is the common tendency that most of the people like to watch crude negative movies and listen to negative songs. And in so doing the common people get trapped in the net of capitalist exploiters. Please read below for more clarity. Baba says, "As you know, the mind has a natural tendency to degrade itself; it flows more easily downwards than upwards. So if some people, by virtue of their wealth, impose vulgar cinemas and dramas on others,..." [NH-LOI] Baba further explains that with this influence of vulgar literature, cinema, dance etc, the backbone of common pubic gets smashed. By this breaking of their backbone they get paralysed. And they cannot stand erect. The common public is bound in the spell of this sensual attraction & they are even incapable to think about what is happening to them. How they are getting exploited and what their living conditions are like. Most of the time the common public is not even aware that they have been trapped in the quagmire of pseudo-culture. Or that they are getting exploited by wealthy people. For the common public, over the course of time pseudo culture just became their way of life. Does everyone remember those day in the recent past when people had some time to think about social services and helping others. But now most of the public when they have even just a little time they like to be glued to the television. After all this is human weakness. In human beings the animal propensities are more dominating than that divine propensity.
To understand more please read how the human mind works and how it is prone to crude enjoyment. And ultimately the mind gets degenerated; and in the final steps by this way capitalists exploits the common public. Step by step this happens. Please read following Baba quote. Baba says, "this [pseudo-culture] will break their backs and they will become paralyzed. And these paralyzed, spineless people in future will never be able to stand unitedly against cultural or any other kind of exploitation. They can never do so because mentally they are completely dead--their capacity to raise their heads in protest has been crushed forever. How can they raise their heads again?" [NH-LOI] Baba is furthermore explaining below that this pseudo-culture is very detrimental & dangerous. So we have to recognise that the majority of people are already trapped in pseudoculture. Without taking them out, there is no way for their emancipation. So Baba is telling that the duty of good people is to help others. To save others from pseudo-culture, i.e. their attraction towards crude dance, negative movies, literature, and their indulge in crude gossip using slang. Baba says, "This exploitation in the cultural sphere is accomplished by the propagation of pseudo-culture. Every honest, virtuous and rational person must fight against this pseudo-culture, and inspire others also to do the same." [NH-LOI]
Excuse me the story does not end here. Baba is warning that it is the duty of devotees, margiis, sadvipras to save the humanity. And if it is not done then humanity will face its doom. So whatever we propagate in terms of social service programs, superficial help, or any other type of developmental project, that will not suffice. Because this sex instinct which capitalists magnify can have a horribly dominating effect in the life. If a perverted mentality is dominating in the mind then nothing glorified can be achieved in the entire life. Whole life will be turned into utter frustration in the end. For clear understanding please read out this Baba's quote. Baba says, "If this is not done, the future of humanity will be sealed. It is proper for human beings to struggle for political freedom, for social emancipation; but if their cultural backbone is broken, then all their struggles will end in nothing--like offering clarified butter to a sacrificial fire which has been reduced to ashes. If one's spine is shattered, it is impossible to hold one's head erect. Can those whose necks and backs are crushed under the weight of pseudoculture, be expected to hold their heads high in any sphere of life?" [NH-LOI] In this following message Baba is giving us explicit direction: Baba says, "Hence it is the bounden duty of every rational person to save innocent people from pseudo-culture." [NH-LOI, p.54-55] The whole idea is that this pseudo-culture is not something that is remaining or living on the moon, stars, or planet mars only. Rather this pseudo-culture is surrounding and permeating around our very existence. So this pseudo-culture is not limited to 1 or 2 persons. Rather this pseudo-culture is an on-going, pervasive problem that in one or another way we all are facing in our day to day life. Our own personal lives are affected & our kids like to see such negative films more than they like to work on their course of study or textbook.
By the grace of Baba, we Ananda Margiis will remain free from pseudoculture. But not only that, the time is not far when our Marga will be leading the way and giving light to the entire human society for their all around salvation. Baba says, "...You are the spiritual soldiers, you are the worshippers of Life Divine, hence I call you to adorn this crimson dawn deluged with glorious light. Victory is surely yours." (from AV #26) Namaskar Amriteshwar Note: In this x-tra busy, modern world we must always be careful not to get caught up in the temporary, degenerative allurements of pseudo-culture. Otherwise it has a disastrous effect. Means in and around this is the common problem and sometimes a few margiis or Dadas may go and see-- but never it yields any beneficial outcome. Rather it worsens. So this is just reminder to one and all and especially to our children and adolescent youth that we should properly guide them away from the terrible ways of pseudo-culture, and onto the path of light.

Birbal replied, 'Aesa' din nahi rahega'-- This day will not last forever'." (AV-4, p. 80) *********************************************
