Social Post: PP

Date: 25 Aug 2009 07:42:44 -0000 From: "Surya Rao" To: Subject: Social Post: PP BABA "Bha'lo besechile keno bolo..." (PS 2014) Purport: Baba, You have graced me and brought me in Your close proximity and showered me in Your divine love. So it is Your liila that now I have deep longing for You yet You are not coming close. Baba, please tell me why You loved me. What was the use if today You do not allow me to hold You. Baba, internally You are not moved or touched by my tears. You remain impassioned and distant. Baba, I have decorated my humble abode exclusively for You. Baba, by Your grace I am trying to follow 16 Points and Your many do's and don'ts to prepare my mind for Your divine arrival. Baba, I have forgotten who is close and who is distant; in my heart there is no differentiation from one human being to another. Everyone is mine. Baba, after crying profusely for You I became miserable, and in this way my whole night passed in Your longing. Because You did not come. Baba, in the end the flowers dried up and withered away. And all my tears just dried up in the air. The pain and suffering of my longing floated away in the sky and ultimately got lost in the oblivion. Baba, I am crying in Your longing but You are not coming. Then why are You attracting me and why have You bound me in Your divine love. Baba, my heart and mind have become so restless-- yet You are not coming close. Why are You doing like this. Baba, please grace me and come close... Note: It is only with the deep feeling of longing that the mind rushes towards Parama Purusa. Without that sense of 'longing' in the heart then one cannot get Parama Purusa. So in order to move ahead on the spiritual path, one must long to attain Him. Indeed this yearning to have Him is one essential factor in getting His closeness. So in this song, by Baba's grace, the devotee has a deep sense of longing in his heart. And by that way the sadhaka becomes more and more close until finally merging in Him. Altogether, it is similar to how one baby starts crying and wants to be held by the mother, and then that mother comes rushing to get her baby. Likewise, the feeling of longing is absolutely necessary in devotional life, because in that way one reaches the Goal.
Namaskar, As we seem to be on the cusp in getting a new PP in one way, shape, or form, i.e. eventually - it is only fitting that we pay heed to Baba's guidelines below about the nature and scope of this important spcial post.
Of course many are thinking that already certain leaders have selected the new PP and just they are waiting until the appropriate moment to place him in the post. Whatever the case-- whether he has already been hand-picked or not-- one thing is certain. Namely that the main criteria for becoming the next PP is that he must be a totally brainless person. This is the mandatory feature. So if anyone wants to compete and try to get that Purodha Pramukha post -- then they must possess that singular quality of brainlessness. It is a pre-requisite. Otherwise one cannot become PP. And not just with the post of PP, in fact this quality of brainlessness is the requiste factor for getting any of the top organisational posts these days. If one has that characteristic then they may get one of those positions. But if one does not have that necessary characteristic they certainly will never get such a post. But surely in the case of the PP-- sheer brainlessness is the special requirement.
In our Caryacarya, Baba has given various provisions about the social post of Purodha Pramukha. By the following guidelines it is quite clear that the post of PP is just one of the many social posts in the organization. For example, here are some of the worldly affairs which PP is supposed to deal with. (A) All the organizational executive decisions must reach to Purodha Pramukha for his discretionary and final judgment. (B) PP's post is for whole life long. (C) In the Purodha Board, PP's single vote has decisive meaning. (D) Each of the judiciary decisions also must reach to Purodha Pramukha for his final approval. (E) Purodha Pramukha is Chief of the Purodhas. (F) So many more social duties and responsibilities he has. By all this it is quite clear that the post of Purodha Pramukha is a social post in our Ananda Marga Pracaraka Samgha. And when just a brainless person is occupying the chair of PP, then all these social duties get done by others who are controlling from behind the scenes. Or they do not get done at all. That is a colourful twist of things since 1990. In any event, the basic idea then is that the post of PP is only social in nature. Means it is limited up to the social realm-- that's all.
In our Tantric system of Ananda Marga, Baba being the Tarak Brahma and Sadguru is the spiritual guide for one and all. He is the spiritual head of Ananda Marga. In other dogmatic organisations the guruship gets handed down from one person to the next. In that way different people take on the role of guru such that their so-called spiritual leader changes from generation to generation. But our AM is not like that. In Tantra only Taraka Brahma is the Guru. Even then a few people get confused and casually refer to PP as the spiritual head of AM. But this is totally wrong. And sincerely speaking I think every Ananda Margii feels in their heart that only Baba is the Guru-- that He is the Supreme spiritual Guide. But just in their silly way a couple people might refer to PP in that faulty way.
If you look at the present day dogmatic religious scene or political field then you may see that stupid people are always getting the power. Just some dummy type of persons get the leadership roles. To qualify oneself only one attribution is needed: Just be a dummy in the hand of some tricky exploiters. Then one will get all kinds of praise and post. In contrast if one has their own independent way of thinking then they will not get any place. Rather they will be cast aside. Unfortunately, as stated above, our AMPS has fallen into this same negative track. Because nowadays in our organisation the main quality or trait needed for getting Vishesh yoga, Purodhaship, Central Committee or Purodha Board membership, or any other type of high post-- then only this single quality is needed: lack of brains. About this topic certainly more can be said so others should also write their feeling and experiences about this.
Even though in the relative sphere our Marga is struggling some, surely the day is not far when all will rally around His divine message in one voice and declare: "All human beings belong to one race...'The exploitation of human beings cannot be allowed!' and, 'Religious hypocrisy cannot be tolerated!' Giving a clarion call to the fragmented human society from beneath the saffron flag, the symbol of service and sacrifice, they will proclaim at the top of their voices, 'Human beings of the world, unite!'" (POD) Namaskar, Surya Note: When Purodha Pramukha is the chief of the Purodhas then he has the same dharmic duties as they do. So when various xyz purodhas are trying to follow 16 points in what little or big way they can, then at least our future PP should also try. Unfortunately to date the PP refrained from doing so. From this one can only assume that maybe from bi-pied (two-legged) the PP thought he became angelic and he got two wings so that he need not do. Is that why the various PP Dadas have long given-up following dharmic duties by not singing kiirtan, not attending DC, not doing Guru Puja, not singing Prabhat Samgiita, etc.
*********************************************** A MOST IMPORTANT POINT THAT IS LEAST UNDERSTOOD IN THE HEART
"Harareme pita' gaorii ma'ta' Svadesha bhuvanatreyan"
"Parama Purusa is my Father, Parama Prakrti is my Mother, and the universe is my homeland. We are all citizens of this universe...And this universe is the thought projection of Brahma, so the ownership of the universe lies with the Supreme Entity." "None of the moveable or immoveable property of this universe belongs to any particular individual; everything is the common patrimony of all, and the Father of all is Brahma. All living beings can enjoy their rightful share of this property." (POD, p. 1-2) Note: Some so-called proutists can deliver long lectures & fancy talks about this above notion. But mostly their knowledge is only theoretical or superficial. They lack the necessary inner heart-felt connection & understanding that: The entire property of this universe belongs to Parama Purusa; and that all are His progeny; and, that therefore the entire property belongs to one and all. This feeling is lacking in their heart. In the absence of this, when some so-called Proutists see any greedy capitalist, then they salute him and covet the idea to become like him. Some other so-called proutists think: 'What is in my pocket is mine and that wherever Prout gets established then everyone else's pocket will also become mine'. They never think that, 'What is in my pocket belongs to everyone else'. Not surprisingly then we also see in our organisation that moneyed-persons ($$) get a lot of respect by virtue of their wallet. So in our AMPS nowadays that there are two types of behavior or dealing: One special style of treatment for the wealthy and another less careful type of behaviour towards the poorer margiis. This is quite evident at retreats, dharmacakra, seminars etc. All told then in our day-to-day, practical life many people forget and overlook this very point of Cosmic patrimony. This idea is not saturated in their heart. Hence special care should be taken-- we should be vigilant not to forget this above said guideline of Baba.
