Quickest Approach to Gain Virtue & Moksa

From: "Girish Chandra Mitra" To: Subject: Quickest Approach to Gain Virtue & Moksa Date: Fri 24 Sep 2010 22:05:14 +0530 Baba "Maner kon'e samgopane ke go tumi base ekela'..." (P.S. 3529) Purport: O' divine Entity, by secretly sitting alone in the remote corner of my mind, You are vibrating my mind and heart-- my whole existence-- in divine ecstasy. Please tell me who are You. Neither do You share the feelings of Your heart with me so I do not know what is Your desire. And when I ask You what You want, then You tell that You do not want anything. Just with Your charming smile You are showering sweet nectar like a garland of pearls. O' Supreme Personality, please tell me, are You alone? Have You no companion? Are You searching for someone? Is that the reason why You are always wandering around this entire universe in all the ten directions-- because You are searching for some companionship. Is that why You are busy enjoying Your divine liila in this bottomless and endless, mobile and immobile world-- i.e. in Your entire creation. O' Divine Entity, of all the bhavas You are Mahabhava. You are the quintessence of all thoughts and ideations-- the ultimate Goal of all the samadhis. O' Supreme One You are complete unto Yourself and infinite. You do not have any shortage or dearth of anything; You have everything. You control the unit as well as the vast-- everything. You go on creating Your liila in hundreds of ways and flows. Your grandeur is infinite & endless. O' divine One, who is most charming and attractive, please grace me by revealing Your identity. You have captivated me by Your causeless grace and by the infinite bond of Your divine love...
Namaskar, Adhering to 16 Points is very difficult; but there is no need to pay heed to them to get moksa. If you have money, then each year for Baba's birthday you should purchase a huge quantity of firecrackers - that will bring you to your cherished Goal. And if you do not have sufficient funds then collect money from others and purchase fireworks. Thus on Ananda Purnima, you can create a huge noise and pollute the whole area. If any margii does not want to give you money then demoralise them. Tell them that they do not have love for Baba and that they are non-margiis or secret agents. Utterly disregard whatever is written in Caryacarya part 1 regarding Ananda Purnima such as feeding the poor, hosting a medical camp, helping patients, or serving the needy. One need not do those things. Those are all outdated ideas. Plus, if anybody is trying to do those things then discourage them. Inspire all that shooting off fireworks is the easiest, quickest and smartest way to gain access to Baba's grace and virtue. Regarding the purchase of such firecrackers, do not worry about how much you spend- spend as much as you can and take loan if necessary. Let there be a competition between dadas, margiis avadhutas and acaryas about who can put on the the biggest fireworks show. Inspire everyone to purchase at least $50,000 for their unit. Any other social service project like a children's home, school or relief, is totally secondary. The fireworks show will be the top project - that will get top billing. And if anybody does not cooperate, then punish them. It is not a joke - this is exactly what is going on in so many units - especially in Ranchi HQ and other places. According to Baba's teachings, our AM slogan stands for: Liberation of self and service to humanity. Liberation of self means doing sadhana and following 16 Pts; and service to humanity means rendering selfless service. But unfortunately that is not the priority these days. Group leaders are instead copying the dogmatic religions. Shooting off fireworks is a mirror image of Islamic namaz. While performing namaz they create as much noise as they can. Hindu priests also make huge noise in their puja. Ranchi leaders and others have made the system that on Baba's upcoming birthday on 90th birthday that is coming one has to shoot off firecrackers - and with each passing year, the number of fireworks and noise increases. Just add one more every year or more. Some now purchase firecrackers in large groups - by this way it will grow and grow and grow. After 2000 years, margiis will be forced to explode 2000 firecrackers or more. And when millions will be Ananda Margiis then you can imagine the situation on this planet. Everywhere there will be firecrackers and the pollution (air and land) they make. In the future, some radical margiis will explode bombs in order to make a huge sound and gain quick grace and moksa. As a result, unfortunately many will lose their hearing, be exposed to fires & even undergo death. Indeed at the last Ananda Purnima celebration in Ranchi, the pandal caught fire. The whole area was so polluted it was hard to breath. During the last Ananda Purnima celebration, one big firecracker cost 4000RS which is the amount one laborer while working full-time for six months. DPS Dada did not do social service rather he spent all the money on firecracker. That is why the food prepared in daytime was eaten in the evening as well, because no money for fresh food in evening due to the high cost of the fireworks. And this is in the summer season where the food gets stale very quickly.
At present, the whole society is suffering from air pollution and on the other side the vanguards of humanity are polluting and encouraging others to pollute by their grandiose fireworks displays on Ananda Purnima. There is a veritable competition between one group and the next, one jagrti and the next, one wt and the next etc. In place of this type of dogmatic and stupid competition, there should be competition for following 16 Points, serving society and doing sadhana. That is how to celebrate Ananda Purnima. Now we have to think how we can solve this problem. Namaskar, Girish
****************************************** Health Guideline: Sleeping Related "Do not sleep on a soft bed." (CC-3, Chap 6, Pt #4)
Note: This above point that Baba is describing has deep meaning. Some ignorant people however who are unaware about health and hygiene get swayed by pseudo-culture and they use a spring-loaded bed with thick mattresses. But that is very detrimental for the various joints, muscles, & organs of the body and it creates an ill-effect on the body systems such as digestive disorders & diseases. Mostly because of hunchback syndrome and because the stomach is pressed. Keeping this view, including many more benefits, Baba has graciously introduced this above rule. Everyone should follow this and then they will realise the deeper aspect of its value. Amongst conscious people it is commonly known that soft beds lead to the onset of many diseases including incurable backaches and joint pain. So one should be aware. One should not fall in the trap of momentary pleasure and invite more dangerous diseases. Note 2: Revealing the spiritual significance of this point, Baba guides us that those who are using a hard bed in day to day life, their body becomes more and more capable for intense psycho-spiritual practice. Such sincere sadhakas keep away from using a pillow also.

Obvious Truth, But Hard to Comprehend...

Date: Fri, 24 Sep 2010 16:48:42 -0000 To: From: Subject: Obvious Truth, But Hard to Comprehend... Baba
Note: This entire letter is related with one new promotion in AM. Namaskar, Many companies offer promotions in order to exploit the common people. To attract customers, they make tempting offers. For instance, cigarette companies will give free samples and beer distributors will offer free alcohol etc. The reason is not to give away their products per se, but to exploit and even harm people for their whole life by making them into lifelong customers. The motive is to make money, but there are some fools who cannot understand this truth and hence they get trapped. These days the various religions also operate as one company or business. They just start a faction - no investment is needed - and attract people by certain allurements and promises. For instance, they will promise victory in your court case, or a beautiful wife, or a good job, or high prestige, or fame and fortune, or heaven, and so many things etc. This is the way they attract new followers. The central motive of such religious exploiters is to increase the money in their own pocket by emptying the pockets of others. With that same motive and same trick, B group is also making a new promotional giveaway in order to allure participants to Tiljala for their annual (dogmatic) Mahaprayan programme. Because when anyone reaches Mahaprayan - for any reason - then those groupist hosts squeeze attendees for money and work hard to bring them into their group fold so they can continue to call upon them for money. That is their main interest in bringing people to Tiljala: For money. And that is why they use promotions. Why then are they introducing a new promotion? Well their first promotion of a 7- day kiirtan program was once an allurement to draw attendees. But now everyone has understood their ploy. Margiis understand that Mahaprayan (MPD) is total dogma. So they will not attend - regardless of the said kiirtan programme. Earlier from all around the globe people were rushing to Tiljala for MPD like ants to sugar & vultures to the dead body. In those times people were not thinking; naive margiis were not considering or questioning Mahaprayan as a dogma. Now that hypocrisy has been unmasked; people understand that Mahaprayan is just one dogma and should not be supported in any way, shape or form. So that promotion of 7-day kiirtan is no longer enough to draw people to Tiljala. That promotion lost its efficacy. That is why recently, one new promotion has been introduced: Tiljala advertises that margiis will only gain access to Baba's museum if they come for Mahaprayan. The rest of the year the museum will be inaccessible. With this enticement they are trying hard to bring margiis to MPD. Let's see how many (if any) are going to be attracted by this new promotion.
By His grace, margiis have understood that Baba lives in their heart so there is no need to rush outside in the external world to find Him. Doing that means annoying Baba. This fact all understand that is why people do not like to go to any pilgrimage, like Tiljala for Mahaprayan etc, in search of Baba. Quite frankly these type of tiirthas were started by Muslims, Christians, Hindus etc. But it is not working in Ananda Marga because the followers of AM are not as dogmatic as those religious followers. By Baba's grace, we know He resides in our hearts - one need not go anywhere to get Him, nor should we get duped by any promotion for attending Mahaprayan. Let's see if anybody goes... Namaskar, Mahesh
