The Way Our Prout Treatise Got Altered

From: "Motilal Pandey" To: Date: Tue, 02 Feb 2010 06:28:34 +0500 Subject: The Way Our Prout Treatise Got Altered Baba Baba has given this following song to warn those who are demons in human form, who by their nefarious work are destroying the peace by spreading poison and bringing disaster. "Manus' manus' ha'ra'ye hunsha kotha'y calecho tumi. A'ka'sh ba'ta's bis'iye diye narak kare marttyabhu'mi..." (PS 1190) Purport: Why have you lost your rational sense and started moving on the path of annihilation and ruination. You made this golden earth poisonous with the domination of your disastrous theories, i.e. the dogma of groupism etc. You threw away the high ideals of spirituality and you forgot the eternal truth that whatever strength you are getting, that is coming from Him...Parama Purusa...Baba... He is the source. So you lost the sense and you do not like to understand that, to pulverize your ego, the trident of Parama Purusa is active...
Namaskar, Ours is a universal society aimed at projecting Baba's ideals to one and all. So we have to be vigilant when any impediment within the Marga crops up and steers things in their own direction. For all those who care about Prout - which is everyone - please read the following with great care.
One group has worked hard to alter and distort Baba's presentation and teachings on Samaj. Let me explain further. Specifically, two editions of the Prout in a Nutshell series, i.e. parts 19 & 20, got completely coloured with Bangalisation. Because in those two editions there are 8 full discourses dedicated to Bengal. Giving the false impression as if the Amra Bengali samaj is the only samaj on the planet or that Baba only gave importance to that samaj. But this is not the case at all because on this planet there are 241 samajas and Baba in His own unique way gave equal importance to them all. But after 1990 led by the heavy hand of Sarvatmananda, B group stuffed the pages of our Prout books exclusively with discourses on Bengal while the many other samajas of India were discarded entirely; or like Bihar if they got place then very little space was given in comparison to Bengal. And for overseas samajas, the condition is the same. Either they were completely discarded or given very little place. So it is clear that with a partial hand their intention was only to highlight the Bengalistan area at the cost of other places.
Yet the spirit of Baba's teachings and Baba's practical approach is completely different. Whatever samajas Baba visited and even those places He did not physically attend to, always Baba recognised the value of and encouraged the development of all samajas. Toward this end He regularly gave dictations about the plans and programs to execute in the various samajas. And Proutists from all over the globe personally noted down and received these guidelines from Baba. So those aware know that Baba's teachings were related with so many aspects of the development of the various samajas on the topics such as agriculture, industry, irrigation, trade, culture, history etc. And many more things. And on those occasions, Baba spoke in great detail about innumerable samajas. Huge time was allocated for this. But such important guidelines of Baba did not get place in the Prout. Only Bangla samaj points got place in the Prout books.
Due to B group's deep seeded desire to impose their Bengali Raj, they made sure that only Baba's teachings related with Bengali areas got the upper hand. Only their own samaj discourses were highlighted in the Prout Nutshell books. And Baba's talks about other samajas did not get the place-- they were neglected and rejected outright.
Because if you look at the Prout 19 and 20 then you will get 8 discourses which are exclusively related with samaj of Bengali area. And about South Indian samaj or north or western India they were discarded from these Prout books. But similar planning Baba told to all those samaj leaders whom Baba used to call to give special guidance. So due to B group's interference that is why only Bengali samaj plans, programs, and guidelines given by Baba have been published in Prout. Why were Mara'thi samaj, Tamil samajam, Kannada samajam, Chhattisgarhii samaj, Dogari samaj, Nagpuria samaj, Maharlika samaj, Mauri samaj, and all those several dozens of samajas discarded from the Prout books? I think now the answer is becoming clear. Because everyone knows that Baba's guidelines for these aforesaid samajas were given, but they were never allowed to have a place in the Prout books. Only Bangla got the place. Reason being that those days in 1991-92 B group was controlling and they wanted to create an inferiority complex in the minds of Margi members of other samajas. By creating the false impression that Baba has given special preference to Bengalistan. Thereby continuing their group supremacy. But the fact is that Baba guided equally to all the samajas. Clearly then one type of deliberate distortion of Baba's teachings has been done. That only the Bangla area planning and programs of Baba's teachings got the place in Prout, and not other areas. Till today B group does not have an iota of repentance for what they have done. i.e. They changed the BP manual and altered the AM Revolution chapter etc. In sum they wiped out Margi rights. But B group's negative dealings on this topic does not end here.
Here is another pertinent example how B group has altered Baba's books and manipulated His discourses on samaj. A case in point: In the Proutist Economics book a total of 104 pages got dedicated for the Bengali samaj, and only 18 pages were allotted for all the five (5) samajas of Bihar. And Baba's talks on innumerable other samajas were discarded entirely. By this manipulation, so many of Baba's teachings related with the development of samaj did not get place in Prout.
So all this gives proof that since long B group has been strategizing and executing their plans of group dominance wherever and whenever they get any little or big opportunity. So today's raid of Ananda Nagar sits on top of a whole heap of injustices carried out by B group. And furthermore what alteration B group has done to the formation of Baba's books and manipulated the teachings on samaj. All this gives hardcore evidence to their long term and on-going plan to rule Centre and wave their flag of Bengali Raj. Indeed their plan was so deep-rooted that even after their fall from power, many of their distortions and dogmas still stand: Destruction of BP Manual, Bangalisation of Baba's Discourses, Fake Ananda Vaniis, Distoration of AM Revolution & more. While the other groups wanted power B group brought a whole other agenda to the table as well. And still today we are dealing with the mess they created.
So at the cost of the sanctity of Baba's treatises on Prout and the welfare of our Marga the crimes committed by B group must not be allowed to continue. The day has come for all margiis to come forward waving the banner of neo-humanism, doing away with narrow-minded, groupist traditions. Baba says, "You must awaken those who do not realise the facts, and make them aware. Let the ideals of neo-humanism reach their ears, and be implanted in the core of their hearts. With their liberated intellects they will throw all their illusions into the dustbin." (NH-LOI) Namaskar, Motilal Note 1: These are the eight (8) discourses in Prout Nutshell 19 & 20 dedicated to Bengal. PNS 19: 'Bangladesh', 'Tripura', 'East Wet Theory', 'Talks on Bengal'; PNS 20: 'Socio-Economic Potential of Bengal', 'Northeastern India', 'South Bengal', 'Contai Basin Planning'.
************************************************* Allopathic Medicines Not Good
"When people take allopathic medicine to cure a disease, the medicine disturbs the ecological balance of the body because more negative microvita get concentrated at the point of the disease. Allopathic medicines do not kill diseases -- diseases die by their own natural death. Although the medicine may check the disease, the increased concentration of negative microvita can overcome the effect of the medicine. In fact, the increased concentration of negative microvita caused by allopathic medicines creates many new types of diseases, and due to this, two or three new diseases are presently being created every decade. So what is the solution to this problem? Our approach should be two fold -- external and internal. Externally we should take medicines to check diseases, but internally we should perform spiritual practice." (MVNS, p.136)

Crutch Is Not Needed

From: "Will Chaucey" To: Subject: Crutch Is Not Needed Date: Mon, 01 Feb 2010 15:07:49 +1000 Baba "Esechile Prabhu ghare...varas'a'y..." (P.S. 298) Purport: O' Lord since ages this dry and barren earth has been waiting for Your Divine arrival. And now in the form of the roaring of the clouds and the pouring rain You have come. The heat-stricken earth has received You today with new hope. Baba, the wings of my mind go on dancing in hundreds of tunes and melodies. The dumb have gotten the language to express themselves; and now they are running towards divinity. Baba, by getting You today, my heart is overflowing-- all the directions are swaying in Your divine effulgence. The ten directions are swaying with the effulgence of Parama Purusa. Baba, today for me there is nothing more to do. Becoming ensconced in You, I go on seeing Your form. Baba the hunger of these three worlds, the nectar of the three worlds, all these have mingled into one. Baba it is Your grace, today You have come and showered devotion...
Namaskar, Here in Ananda Marga we all know that Baba is the most Glorified One. Certainly then any devotional book of Baba stories will reflect this sacred truth, in all respects. However, one such publication has been on the scene from NY sector that has added one other ingredient. Naturally then we should see how far this thing is working and where it came from. First though here is one Supreme Truth from our devotional scripture.
In numerous discourses Baba has revealed to us about the unique quality of His divine existence.
"Na tatra suryo ... tasya bhasa sarvamidam vibhati."
Baba says, "He who illumines the external world, illumines all the stars and planets also. Besides Parama Purusa, no other entity has light of its own. The light of all other entities is the mere reflection of His effulgence...All are lighted with His light; with His radiance, all others are radiant, and in His effulgence all others become blessed." (NSS, 95 Edn, p.244) By this way anyone can understand that Baba Himself is Effulgent in His own Glory. He stands in His own Magnificence. And it is only due to HIS divine compassion and grace that all other entities progress. Means there is no question of Baba being benefited by someone else's efforts etc. Because Baba Himself is effulgent in His own glory. And all Ananda Margiis feel this way in their heart; nobody in our Marga needs to be convinced of this. Because the very name 'Ananda Margii' means that they have accepted Baba's glory in the deep core of their heart. Unfortunately one ingredient from the newly released story book from NY sector has a different sort of way to it.
By even the most common glances of the book any sadhaka can recognise that those in charge felt that some added extra was needed. As if Baba's effulgence, or the devotional phrase "Baba stories" was somehow not sufficient-- and therefore margiis might not be attracted. In this concocted fashion they were thinking, or so it seems. Because, in their eyes, to supplement the matter they brought in one type of person to recommend the book and they pasted his words and qualifications on the glossy cover as if by this way Baba's status was heightened, or as if it was needed to attempt to heighten it. When in fact this little trick or ingredient was just like using one paltry matchstick to illumine the Sun-- or even less than that. Because Baba is that effulgent Parama Purusa and all margiis know this and surely they are enticed to read the intimate tales of His glory. But in peculiar fashion the makers opted to employ one type someone on the back cover to introduce the matter-- as if the topic needed some justification. As if Baba's Supreme effulgence is not enough. As if Ananda Margiis are not going to understand who is Shrii Shrii Anandamurtiji. So like that the whole glossy back cover of the book is filled with this one type of person's didactic words, language, & logic. This ingredient, or crutch, they added. When what is the need... And on the top when their selected hero's own character is of such a shady variety.
The question also arises as to why or rather how did all this happen? And by seeing the situation from multiple perspectives, it is obvious that those who created this NY Sector story book, they got swayed by the capitalist pseudo-culture of the west. Otherwise what can be the cause. Because just see, it is commonly known that in the superficial view of capitalism it is a "must" to have someone talk up the topic of the book on the back cover. Means regardless of what your book says on the pages inside, the most important point of prestige of any book is what is written on the glossy back cover. Where people sing your song and preach your glory. This is the way that capitalist publishing companies and book selling agencies operate. And about this nonsense there are a million and one horror stories that show how this ploy is mostly nothing but capitalist negativity. But whatever it may be, the main idea is that in this crude materialistic society, this approach is the law of the land. Means anyone who publishes a book does like this. So those at the helm of publishing the NY sector Baba's story book thought, consciously or unconsciously that this is the way-- to follow in the footsteps of these superficial capitalist exploiters. Means they got affected by the outside society. Hence in their silly approach they brought in one misguided fellow to write something as if this would glorify the scene. As if Baba's Supreme Glory would be heightened by this odd person's words. Means like this the whole thing seems to have happened.
When in fact it is disastrous to do like this. Because according to this trend, just see what will happen in the future. Tomorrow we will receive the newest & latest edition of Baba's holy books like Subhasita Samgraha, or Ananda Vacanamrtam, or Ananda Sutram, etc and on the glossy back cover there will be a first-rate photo of some lame-duck president from this or that dogmatic state, or the photo of some crude drunkard type of author, or who knows what-- and they will be telling us that Lord Shrii Shrii Anandamurtiji's book is ok. As if without the superficial words of such tinsel type of people on the back cover, then we will not know that Baba's words are pure and dharmic. Or even worse they will invite some filmy heroes to adorn Baba's books just like they have done with our Prabhat Samgiita cassette covers where they get filmy dancers and singers with lipstick etc to be on the cover of Baba's divine Prabhat Samgiita cassettes. Means now this nonsense will also be going on with our Ananda Books. Where crude dancers & pop stars are placed on the cover to attract more people. Like this we can all see what type of black scenarios can and will occur in the future-- if we are not careful. Hence this negative trend should stop.
Baba has written countless books and not on any single publication has He ever done like this-- i.e. what happened with the NY Sector Story book. Means even from the very beginning in those early days when the book "Ananda Marga Elementary Philosophy" was published and when "Carayacarya" and "A Guide To Human Conduct" were initially printed, in all those cases Baba never ever chose some xyz person-- & not anyone at all-- to appear on the front or back cover as a so-called advocate or sponsor for AM books. Never was this done. So when Baba has graciously provided us with one pristine example then why should we follow some negative path and jump into the mud bath of those capitalist agencies that are full superficial maneuvers and hypocrisy. Why should we adopt their negative trend.
Baba has given us His blessing and declared that Ananda Margiis are the vanguard of the society. Indeed by adhering to His 16 Points and dharmic teachings, we will forge ahead and pave the pathway that others will follow. About this fact we should not harbour any second thoughts and we should not get stuck up by following someone else's negative path. Rather we should be firm in our resolve and move ahead, knowing that Baba's divine grace is with us.
I do not know who exactly is responsible for designing the NY Sector Baba stories book in this manner, but they should not have done like this. Such type of negative crutch is not at all needed-- rather it is harmful. We should keep away from such types of dogma and always remember the fact that Baba's devotional story is effulgent in His own glory. Baba says, "This Supreme Entity, this Parama Purusa... is the most resplendent entity in all." (NSS) Hence we must not allow such blunders to occur in the future. Rather as His disciples we are always to uphold the sanctity of Baba's divine image. Baba says, "Observe non-compromising strictness and faith regarding the sanctity of Ista." (Pt 10 of Sixteen Points) I kindly request others to write their thoughts. Namaskar, Vinay Note 1: If any devotional book is being written then some xyz fellow should not come forward to appreciate the Divine Entity by writing something on the back cover. It is like one pig coming forward in support of a human being to say he is great. Such ploys should not be done for devotional story books - for non-margii books it is fine to do. After all everyone knows that Devashish's character is mixed up witha all kins of opposite sex issues etc. This trend is not good otherwise tomorrow all Baba's books will be "honored" by some petty professor who writes on the back cover. This trend we should not be allowed to continue. Note 2: Those who managed the book like this, they did what they did. And now anyone with devotion can see the matter for what it is. And in the future when the standard is high, then people will easily see the status of those who did like this concerning Baba's magnanimity and glory. Note 3: Here is one of the many places wherein Baba declares that all those following the devotional cult of Ananda Marga are the vanguards for ushering in a new era. So then why should we leave our dharma by following negative capitalist strategies. Rather we should stick to the high ideals of AM. Baba says, "You are the torch-bearers of human civilization. You are the pioneers of human march, and you are the vanguard of a new civilization." (AV-14)
******************************************** Deserts Needed
Baba says, "Ecologists claim that some deserts are essential for keeping the global ecology in a balanced state. The high day temperatures and the cold night temperatures that occur in desert regions create a useful effect. The hot, dry desert air rises and creates a vacuum which sucks in cool air, generating a chain reaction. Moist air is sucked in from the sea and formed into clouds which then rain on the land. If deserts vanish entirely, the overall rainfall will be reduced." (PNS-16, p.37)
