Mahaprayan of One Margii & Baba Story

                 == MAHAPRAYAN OF ONE MARGII & BABA STORY ==

Recently a very senior and respected margii - Vimal Rajasthaniji - left this world. His Mahaprayan happened at 9am on 6th March 2011 at his residence at Betiah, Bihar. He was 90 years old.

Shrii Rajasthaniji was a blessed devotee of the Lord, Shrii Shrii Anandamurti ji. Here is a wonderfully devotional tale that will be inspiring to all.

Initially, in the early days, our dear brother Rajasthaniji was very critical of Ananda Marga. He had a lot of ego and thought extremely highly of himself - he admitted this in his own writings years later.

One night Rajasthaniji had a dream. He was on the shore and he saw someone coming towards him tearing away the darkness with great effulgnece. That effulgence grew and grew, and when that effulgence was very close to him he saw one figure. That figure was calling him by his given laokika name - a name which no one in AM knew. From the effulgence, that figure said in a very melodic voice, "Purusottoma come, Purusottoma come." The voice was very tender and sweet. Rajasthaniji's mind became full of bliss. At that very moment he woke up and could feel the divine bliss radiating throughout each and every pore of his body. The divine vibration triggered a wave of devotional feelings in his heart and mind. So that very day Rajasthaniji made contact with an acarya and got initiated. After some time he went for PC and the story came full circle. Upon entering the room for PC, Rajasthaniji could see that the effulgent, charming figure from his dream was Baba Himself. Realising this, Rajasthaniji started crying - the tears of devotion flowed and flowed.

After hearing this story you might wonder, what was it that Rajasthaniji did not like about Ananda Marga. Well earlier, he was thinking that Ananda Margiis were not very well educated and he had a lot of ego about his own schooling. One time he overheard a conversation during an AM meeting, and Rajasthaniji did not appreciate the use of grammar and language. So he thought that these Ananda Margiis do not proper proper literary knowledge and are incapable of delivering a good lecture. In this way, Rajasthaniji had tremendous vanity about his own language skills

By Baba's grace after he had that dream he became quite a dedicated margii. He stood strong during all organisational difficulties. Plus he brought his entire family into AM.

Vimal Rajasthaniji was born in 1921 and his mahaprayan happened a few days ago. He was a sublime poet and litterateur and he was always involved in the thought of the Lord, Shrii Shrii Anandamurti ji. In fact, he was singing Baba's name when his mahaprayan occurred. Surely at this moment he is seated on Baba's divine lap.


* Mahaprayan (Death):  Many are aware that mahaprayan (death) is the
common term used in India and especially in Bengal to describe the death
of an honoured or even ordinary person. In that way the newspapers of
Bengal are regularly citing the mahaprayan (death) of various persons of
society who died or passed away.

Some may get confused and wrongly think that the word 'mahaprayan'
(death) is one extraordinarily devotional term to be used in association
with Parama Purusa. But that is not at all the case. Rather to do so is
only to undermine the eternal presence of Parama Purusa. That is why no
devotees ever use the word 'mahaprayan' in reference to Lord Shiva or
Lord Krsna. Because Lord Shiva and Lord Krsna exist eternally. Then
there is no question of Their mahaprayan (death).

Those who think that Baba is a mortal human being celebrate Mahaprayan on a
particular day of the year related with Baba, but in the true sense Baba is
Parama Purusa so He is eternal and there is no question of His mahaprayan.

And for those who need still more technical proof then all this can
be clarified quite readily by referencing the dictionary. Specifically
in the Samsad Bengali-English dictionary on page 742. Checking there it
will be confirmed that the word 'mahaprayan' means death. Which is why
it used to refer to the passing away of even common citizens.
