Baba Has Given Everything...

                      BABA HAS GIVEN EVERYTHING--


                          THAT ARE NEEDED

Our blessed holiday of Ananda Purnima is coming soon. That is one of
the most glorious occasions in our Marga. We all gather and celebrate His
Divine advent.

Unfortunately, since 1990, this highly devotional occasion has been riddled
by one dogma: The issueing of Fake Ananda Vaniis by one or more groups.

Here is the story about that and how we must rid this dogma from our AM

                       SOME OF THE HISTORY

Since some time the discussion has going on how we can solve the problem
of the Fake Ananda Vanii. Because since 1991 every year, two times we are
receiving some quotes, wrongly named as 'Ananda Vanii' by the leading

So, as one solution, in our unit we collectively decided that since we
already have 74 Ananda Vaniis, originally given by Baba -- then why not
choose one of these for the twice yearly unveiling of an Ananda Vanii
during Ananda Purnima and New Year's Day.

In that case we will treat that Ananda Vanii as the guideline for the next
six months. And then we will select another one for Ananda Purnima from
Baba's original collection, "Ananda Vanii Samgraha".

Thus some margiis think that instead of having some groupist politicians
fabricate a Fake Ananda Vanii, in place of this it is far to select the
Ananda Vaniis from the pool of the Ananda Vanii collection.


Sarvatmanandji created one negative trend in 1991 & according to his own
selfish desire he was selecting one quote and calling it Ananda Vanii. When
in fact he was making Fake Ananda Vaniis. That is why most margiis do not
like what he did as it is against Baba's system. So ultimately we thought
Baba's original and true Ananda Vaniis is enough; let those groupist people
choose their quotes in their dogmatic approach call it what they like-- but
we do not appreciate what they are doing.

Margiis requested those groupist persons to follow Baba's system and select
an Ananda Vanii from amongst Baba's perfect jewels of 74 Ananda Vaniis--
however because of their dogmatic mind they do not like to listen and they
got stuck up in their dogma. But by Baba's grace, rational margiis from my
unit firmly maintained that we must adhere to Baba's teachings. Let those
groupist people do what they are doing-- but we will follow Baba.

                      85 SUTRAS IN ANANDA SUTRAM...

Nowadays various margiis also give the proper logic, that as in Ananda
Sutram there are 85 Sutras. So it is very limited in number-since it is not
hundreds of thousands. Similarly we have limited DMC discourses which is
also not several thousand. And we know that only DMC discourses can be
printed as Subhasita Samgraha. Not others.

Only one Supreme Command we have, not many. Doing Guru Puja, we have only
four slokas, not hundreds and thousands. Because Baba has given everything
in a very pointed and concentrated way. So people should not feel that AM
ideology is very, very difficult to study and understand. But surely if it
would have been fifty thousand sutras in Ananda Sutram, and twenty thousand
DMC discourses, or several hundred mantras of our sadhana or several
thousand Vaniis then it would have been a problem.

But in truth Baba has made it very easy and graspable.

                     HOW THE DOGMATIC RELIGIONS DO

On the other side we see that the Hindu religion has thousands of
ritualistic things-- and similar type of dogma is there in all the
religions. They do not have simple, straight-forward, pin-pointed
teachings. So they are all confused about their do's and don'ts.  By that
way, the common public thinks that to understand the scripture is not an
easy job. It is the work of priests only. Seeing the opportunity, priests
exploit the common mass profusely. To not allow this situation in Ananda
Marga, Baba gave His teaching in a very concentrated way. So that our
slogan is - "Dharma for All."

So in the meeting it was concluded, that our duty is to follow bhagavad dharma
so we should follow those Ananda Vaniis which He has graciously given us.
And we should select each time only one from this pool. And treat it as the
present Ananda Vanii of that occasion - New Year's or Ananda Purnima.

What is the need to select some quote and treat it as the new Ananda
Vanii. And finally add in the Ananda Vanii collection book, and go on
multiplying the number of vaniis each and every year. And in the course of
several hundred years, the number of quotes will increase to more than the
actual Vaniis. So everything will be mess, chaotic.

One other margii emphasized that in true sense there is no need to create
Fake Ananda Vaniis from random quotes. After all, that is a quote. A quote
is quote - but a piece of a different discourse whereas an Ananda Vanii is
an Ananda Vanii - a full discourse unto itself.

So quotes and Ananda Vaniis are two different things - non-interchangeable.

We know there are many sutras which Baba gave in DMC that He did not
include in Ananda Sutram. In that case we must not include those in Ananda Sutram.
Nor can we call it a sutra of Ananda Sutram.

Similarly, Baba's quote from various discourses, cannot be treated as
Baba's Ananda Vanii. They are not the same thing.

Discussing all these, everyone became satisfied that Baba gave total 74
Vaniis and it is enough. From there we will select, and every year we will
do like this. When the time will come then we will select another one from
this Ananda Vanii Samgraha book. So tomorrow we will have our dharmacakra
and decide what will be the Ananda Vanii for 2010 occasion of Ananda Purnima.

Karma Rasa

                                PRABHATA SAMGIITA

"Tumi yadi bha'lo ba'so keno na'hi a'so ka'che..." (PS 3039)


 Baba, by Your grace, I have so much love for You. If You love me then
why don't You come close. Baba, please come in the depths of my heart-- I
am calling You. O' Divine Entity, why are You smiling from a distance in
Your extremely charming and captivating form. Why are You not coming close
so I can hold You tightly and make You mine.
 O' my Dearmost, I have been waiting with great anticipation for Your
arrival, but, alas, You are remaining far away-- beyond my reach. Baba, in
the disappointment and sadness of Your not coming, in that hopelessness the
braids in my hair have become loose and fallen. My exquisitely threaded
flower garland which I made exclusively for You has become dried up and
fallen to the ground, on the dusty floor. O' Rupamaya [1], O' Divine
Entity, with the tears pouring from my coloured eyes, everything in this
expressed universe is floating away.

 Baba, I have heard that You remember everything and that You never
forget anything; I have heard that You keep everyone in Your mind, always.
All are Your very close. O' Divine One, at last You have satisfied my
heart. By Your grace, You have come to me in the madhavii garden and
saturated each & every pore of my mind with Your heavenly sweetness. Baba,
You have graciously filled my heart with Your love; You have showered Your
grace and made me Yours...


[1] Rupamaya: ['Rup' means 'form' and 'may' means 'consisting of'.] This is
one of the innumerable names of Parama Purusa that describes one of His
infinite qualities: Namely, how He has graciously come in the form. By His
wish He has manifested Himself and come in His charming form. That is why
one of the names of Parama Purusa is Rupamaya.

                      One Riddle

Baba says, "Once King Akbar said, 'Birbal, can you please tell me something
which will make a happy man unhappy and an unhappy man happy?'  Birbal replied,  'Aesa' din nahi rahega'-- This day will not last forever'. (AV-4, p. 80)
