How Harmful It Is

From: Amriteshwar Verma Date: Mon 24 May 2010 11:31:52 To: AM-GLOBAL Subject: How Harmful It Is 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...
Note: This entire letter is based on a new audio file - "Baba's Warning About Infusing Fear in Children - uploaded to our blog. In that clip, Baba is speaking in Bengali and the entire transcription and translation is noted below at the bottom of this letter. Here is where you can listen to the audio file:
Namaskar, Often it is the case that parents and caretakers have no idea that what they tell their child can be totally debilitating to the child's growth. The child's entire development can be extremely adversely affected & ruined by a few, seemingly harmless, words. If those parents knew, they would certainly never do that again. Indeed they would never do that to anyone - ever, what to say about their own child. Any loving parent or sincere guardian who comes to know Baba's teaching will repent the rest of their life for how they permanently ruined their child's personality. That is Baba's warning in this below passage: Parents and guardians beware - do not inject fear into the mind of your child. In contrast to the parents, elder siblings and older kids often get a weird type of enjoyment by intentionally scaring younger children. Whereas parents are not aware how harmful it is so they overlook the matter and that perpetuates the problem. Time and again people inject fear as it seems to be an easy way to control the child, but the effect is most disastrous. For instance, a parent might say, "If you do not sit still then a big monster will come and eat you." With that fear, the child sits motionless and the parent thinks that it was a good behaviour modification tactic. In reality however, the whole psyche of small baby is crippled and that problem only increases over time and manifests in various ways. Unfortunately this technique and practice of injecting fear to resolve an issue is a prevailing approach across the planet. That is why a major portion of the population is affected and suffers from fear, shyness and all kinds of problems in their day to day life. Some people may not readily recognise this fact, but if you research carefully you will find that the fear of ghosts, goblins and monsters does not fade away. When they become adults that fear takes expression in all kinds of ways: People feel intimidated in front of their boss, frightened in dark, terrified in an isolated place, afraid to start new work, and petrified in front of the police. That fear reflects in multiple directions. It is quite complex and dramatic how it takes place - tragically it mushrooms in all kinds of ways. Even worse is that this goes on from one generation to the next - what horrors those children experience, as adults they pass that on to their own children. In this way the problem gets replicated. We must break this cycle. If you are one of those who injected fear unknowingly and ruined a child's psyche then try to undo that by giving them confidence. In that way it may fade away. For all these reasons and more, Baba has given this below teaching. Listen carefully and practice. Note: The below transcription from Baba's original spoken Bengali into roman font may lack certain finer grammar points, but the overall idea of the passage has been maintained. Those with greater linguistic backgrounds are welcome to offer a more precise translation etc.
Listen to the audio file at, BABA SPOKE: Ghrna', shaunka', bhaya, aet'a' holo pa'pa, jab tumi jakhan chotto chile, tumi ka'uke ghrna' korte na'. Oi pare toma'r prativeshiira' bandhura' ba'r'iir lokera', toma'ke shikhiye chilo ki, "Aeta korte na'in, aeta ghrnya jinish." To, toma’ke bhaya shikhiye che, lajja' shikhiye che, a'r seit'a shes'a paryanta toma'r rauna [lege] geche. Choto chele du'dha kha'cche na'. Ba'r'iir lokera' bolle, "Oi juju a'che, ta'la ga'che juju a'che, dhare nebe." Tumi jujur bhaye khiye nile du'dha. Ta'r pare, sei tumi jakhane du vatsa'rer na'iny, tumi hoye gele ba'isa vatsa'rer, takhano sei maner jujuta' roye gelo. Kakhano-kakhano svapnetei juju ke dekhbe. Ekla' hote giye jujur bhaya buka kenpe ut'abe. Era holo ki? Na, ca'inpiye deoya ba'ndha'na. Ai, this type of bondage or these bondages are known as pa'shas.
Hatred, doubt, fear are sin. When you were small, you did not hate anybody. After that your neighbors, friends and family members taught you, "This is what hate is, don't do such a thing." They taught you fear, they taught you shyness, and in the end those interactions stained your mind in that color. The small babe did not want to drink the milk. So in order to get the baby to drink the milk, the family members said, "Look a ghost is on the palm tree - it will come and get you if you do not drink your milk." So you drank the milk out of fear of being caught by the ghost. After many years, when you were no longer two, but became twenty-two years of age, that mental ghost still existed in your mind. From time to time in your dreams you will still see that ghost. In consequence, while remaining in a lonely place your heart will become startled and frozen due to fear of that ghost. What is this? Imposed bondage. This type of bondage or these bondages are known as pa'shas.
Baba says, "You will have to build a society in which no one is forced to weep, where everyone smiles joyfully all the time and gets ample scope for laughter. Seeing such mirth and merriment, Parama Purus'a will feel immensely pleased. By giving joy to Parama Purus'a you will feel even more joyful and will feel His close proximity. This is the actual social code. And the actual spiritual code is the one that helps humans move towards Parama Purus'a. Under no circumstances should one create unnecessary controversies. The social code aims at bringing a broad smile to the faces of the progeny of Parama Purus'a. You should all move along this path – you are sure to meet with success." (AV-4) Namaskar, Amriteshwar
Here is another posting on this topic of children and fear:
************************************** Only Remedy
Baba says, "It is the duty of all human beings and especially those who are devotees, it is their mandatory duty to always think that, 'I am a machine and the controller is Parama Purusa. He is the machine man and I have to work according to His desire. I have to fulfill His desire. This body of mine is a machine and it belongs to Him. This is His machine and this machine has to do His work.' If one constantly thinks in this way then the vanity of action will never sprout. This is the only path to save oneself from vanity. One has to think 'I am just one machine; I am a tool and according to His desire I have to work'." (SS-16 (H), p. 81, DMC Agra 19 Feb 84)
