How Baba Deals with Hypocrites

Date: Tue, 24 Nov 2009 06:23:01 -0000 To: From: Richard Cross Subject: How Baba Deals with Hypocrites Baba "A'loker ei ja'tra'pathe prabhu tumi saunge theko..." (PS 3396) Purport: O' Parama Purusa, on the path of this journey* of divine effulgence, please grace me by remaining with me all along. If, while moving ahead on the path, I stop, then please don't leave me alone. Baba, keep me along with You, in Your close proximity. Baba, since eternity You were with me & You colored me in Your color. Now, even in these odd hours, please do not forget this very thing: That You will remain with me all the time. Baba, at the end of the journey only You are there because You are the Goal. And according to Your playful liila You go on pulling everyone close to You by showering Your grace. Baba, due to Your blessing, in sadhana when my mind becomes ensconced in You and I become drenched in Your divine nectar then my 'I-feeling' gets lost in You, merged in You.** O' my dearmost Baba, on this path of forward movement towards You-- in all my duties and practices-- please keep me at Your lotus feet. Baba, this whole entire life is a spiritual journey towards You. Baba, please keep me in Your divine shelter always... *Journey= our spiritual way of living such as asana, pranayama, dhyana, sadhana and all our devotional practices related with Sixteen Points. **Where one's unit I-feeling ends then only Parama Purusa is there. Then one will dissolve or merge into Him. So when a person becomes completely ensconced in the deepest samadhi, then in the sahasrara cakra one will taste that divine nectar, and their whole existence will be inundated with His infinite cosmic grace. Note: The Bengali line has been written in phonetic spelling, according to the way in which it is spoken and sung.
Namaskar, We are aware that in our Marga, straight, clean conduct has far more values and importance than any other quality. A classic proof of this is that during different DMCs, as a Guru Baba graciously treated everyone equally, whether rich or poor. In the DMC pandal, all margiis irrespective of their nationality or economic status were sitting on the ground / dusty carpet inside the pandal. It is not that there was a special air-conditioned lounge arranged for wealthy people. Never was it like that. Rather all sat on equal seats before Beloved Baba.
When one very important political leader, Guljarilal Nanda', came to see Baba, he wanted to desperately to have personal contact. However Baba did not allow him because his conduct was not at all good. That time that negative political leader was holding a very important minesterial post in Central Gov't of India. And in that capacity he was doing varieties of nasty activities. But in an attempt to get PC this politician followed Baba from Delhi to Bombay airport. But Baba refused to give him the time of day-- means he did not get the chance to talk to Baba even. Because Baba maintains only the strictest standards on dharma based on proper conduct.
Another story is coming in my mind. Before '70, when Ananda Marg was very small, those days Baba was living in Jamalpur. Then one big capitalist Hanuman Prasad Poddar came with bundles of millions of rupees to offer to Baba. He took initiation so he could meet Baba since those days getting Personal Contact was very easy. In this way this capitalist reached to Baba's room. And then and there he offered those bundles of rupees to Baba. And he was thinking that Baba should give him some blessing so that he could multiply his crooked business. But by seeing that money, Baba became furious. And with anger He scolded that capitalist cheater that, 'Why did you bring this dirty money?!. Then in dharmic fashion Baba took the bag and threw it out the window. Hanuman Prasad Poddar was shocked with astonishment. And he ran outside to pick up the money from the street, where it had scattered. In the mean time Baba shut & locked the door from the inside.
So this is the way Baba deals with people-- according to their mental feeling. In other organizations money often plays a significant role. But in Baba's personal life, never was it like that. His relation with each and every margii is totally based on devotion, and devotion alone. And that devotion is related with the conduct. Without proper conduct, devotion is not possible.
Similarly we should deal strongly with those who hypocrites who believe in unity just with the tip of their tongues. Such talk has no value, rather it belies their low mental colour. But our strong approach we should force the situation so that their actions-- no their tongue-- reflect a unified and dharmic approach. Therefore those who give high talks about unity but side by side engage in curtailing margii rights, ruining the Bhukti Pradhan system, distorting Baba's discourses, making their groupist tiirthas, infusing the dogma of Mahaprayan, creating Fake Ananda Vaniis-- all such persons are not for unity, rather they are just groupist exploiters and power mongerers. And they should be dealt with accordingly. Of course this hypocrisy is the case with those top-dog leaders of the various factions and sub-factions who preach high things about oneness but spend all their 24hrs indulged in groupist and dogmatic activities. We all know who these people are - they are our dear brothers and sisters who need help. Our duty is to help them and keep our Marga on the straight path. Falling into groupsim is easy nowadays because "everybody is doing it." If one is not in a group it is difficult to survive. That is why unity of moralists is needed in AM, then all will come forward and work together as one family, and those few hypocritical group leaders will not have a base of support. So they will be force to change their ways. Remember, some think that unity can be achieved by mixing and matching all the groupist parties together. However, keep such groupist agendas and gluing them all togerht is not right. This type of approach has nothing to do with unity. That is inviting more trouble. It would be the same as trying to from a just government by picking representatives from various corrupt offices and compiling them all together. Never will that bring a righteous government. Similarly, pasting various groupist conspirators together under one roof and having them share the power is but a mockery of unity. That is why step by step all are abandoning this idea and instead embracing the view that unity can only be formed by those sadhakas who practice and preach AM ideology. And that is evident by their conduct. Thus for real unity, a pure and dharmic mind is essential and that will be evident by one's straightforward and righteous actions.
Here following are Baba's decisive and clear teachings on unity: Baba says, "All fissiparous tendencies and group or clan philosophies which tend to create the shackles of narrow-mindedness are in no way connected with spirituality and should be discouraged." (PNS-3) Furthermore Baba teaches us that only those truly great ideas which broaden our minds in 360 degrees should be accepted. Because only then will we understand that we are all one. Baba says, "Spiritual philosophy does not recognize any distinctions and differentiations unnaturally made between one human being and another, and stands for universal fraternity." (APH-2, p. 128) Unfortunately the actions of groupist is completely contrary to real unity. Baba says, "One human society is divided into different nations, and one nation is divided into different religions; religions also have different castes, and castes also have different sub-castes -- what kind of situation is this? We have only learned how to divide and subdivide humanity, and we never learned how to unite the people. This is all due to the defective teachings of dogmas...Dogmas are psycho-physical diseases." (PNS-9, p.46)
Unity comes only on the point of ideology when mind is moving toward Parama Purusa-- otherwise unity is impossible. Baba says, "Inner channelisation and one-pointed conversion into psycho-spiritual pabulum brings about radical changes in individual and collective life. The psycho-spiritual approach makes a person deeply introversial, one-directional, strong and dynamic...Such a magnanimous and devotional mind rises above petty quarrels and inter-personal and inter-group conflicts." (PNS-12, p.15) Baba concludes, "The entire society of A'nanda Ma'rga is founded on a common ideal, the goal of becoming one with Brahma...the unity in a society founded on the ideal of Brahma will be everlasting." (PNS-3) Namaskar, Ramendu
******************************************* WT Conduct Rules
Baba says, "We are all the children of the same Father, we are all the members of the same family. By fighting against all kinds of evil forces, we will establish the glory of our Father and the glory of our family." (Point #13 of '14 Points', WT Conduct Rules) Note: A few fallen, degenerated, and disgraceful Wts are going astray from this fundamental rule by spreading the poison of groupism and by creating division in the society-- all of which is completely against neo-humanism. This is all happening due to greed, lust of power, desire for prestige etc. Unfortunately such persons are still in the uniform of Wts so we have to recognise them. As they have tainted the glory of Lord Shrii Shrii Anandamurtiji by their sinful, power-hungry ways. Indeed by all this they have destroyed the sanctity & unity of the family. Note 2: Those who are sincere margiis adhere to this above cited rule since the spirit of this conduct rule is common to one and all.
