~ Complaints of a third class devotee to Parama Purusa ~

Prabhat Samgiita Intro: To accuse Parama Purusa, one must have some type of relation with Him. If one does not have a relation with a particular entity, then one cannot accuse them. Only when a relation exists can you accuse someone.

This following song is the expression of 3rd class devotees. Such bhaktas are better than atheists in that they have a relation with Parama Purusa and they are communicating with Him; but, their mind is not elevated. So they cannot think above mundane loss and gain.

At some point when their sadhana deepens and they grow, then they will forget about all these mundane questions. Because when one's relation with Parama Purusa is very high, sadhakas only accuse Parama Purusa to gain His proximity. Such a person is a 1st class devotee. They do not not accuse Parama Purusa about any mundane loss or gain, happiness or sorrow. Just they want His closeness.

Prabhat Samgiita is for everyone so it offers all kinds of colours and shades. This song is for 3rd class devotees.

"Toma'r ka'che a'ma'r prashn, shono ogo bedaradi... (P.S. 726)


O' Parama Purusa I have a few questions for You. Please listen: O' "unkind" one.

What a liila You have made. When infants are born, why do they cry? Why did You not make it just the opposite. Do You think that if they were born smiling then they cannot survive. When You create everything by Your mere thought, then why don't You make it that so that everyone is always laughing, full of smiles, and feeling happy. Please tell me O' "unkind" One. 

The tender new flower blossom gets bitten by insects and destroyed. Such an “unkind” liila You play. You fill the heart of the sweet, tender flower with nectar but that very nectar is eaten away by the ugly black bumble bee. Why like this? Why don't You do the exact opposite.

When smiles and laughter bring new charm & rejuvenation into the life, then why is it not available in the market? Why is it that the small little baby, which is as tender as a flower, cries bitterly all the 24 hrs. Such a painful liila You have created. Why do You not make them smile always.

O' Parama Purusa some more questions are there.

You have created this entire creation then why all this disparity. A small few are enjoying their dainties and delicacies while others are starving without even a plain meal to eat. Why like this. Why create dainties and delicacies when You don't give them to all.

At the time of the evening sunset, everything is very beautiful, charming and so attractive; but within a very a short span of time it is lost in deep darkness. Why do You not allow this sweetness to last forever.

O' Parama Purusa, it is the cosmic truth that You are eternally living with each and everyone through Your ota and prota yoga. In spite of this, why does the mind often go in a negative direction. Why like this? Why don't You do just opposite.

O' Parama Purusa, O' "unkind" One, please reply to all these questions...

Note for Prabhat Samgiita #726:

[1] Such complaints are foolish, even sinful

“I have already said that the Sádhaka's sufferings are caused by the Saḿskáras which one created oneself. One should therefore not be afraid of experiencing these reactions or accuse Brahma of injustice on this account. Humans very often complain, “God, so you had this in store for me. Is this my reward for so much worship and so much charity?” Such complaints are foolish, even sinful. At the time of suffering a Sádhaka should reproach himself for his past misdeeds and refrain from evil actions in order to avoid more suffering in the future. Everyone should bear in mind that as long as the fire of woes is not extinguished – so long as the Saḿskáras are not burned one has got to suffer. That is why I say you must not find fault with others because of your Saḿskáras; they are merely the reactions caused by your own mistakes and misbehaviour.” (1)

Baba is revealing how ignorant, short-sighted people think and plan in their dogmatic way.

Baba says, "Some people consider that one  start intuitional practice in old age when a person has more leisure, after one has spent the prime of one's life earning money. People are afraid that they may face insecurity and difficulties in their old age if they do not accumulate enough wealth before their bodies weaken with age, rendering them incapable of hard work. They regard the prime of life as the period intended for earning money, and old age with its decreased capacity for hard work as the time to remember God. They are labouring under the misconception that hard work is not necessary for intuitional practice and that old age is therefore the proper time for it." (Ananda Marga Elementary Philosophy, '98, p.131-32)

Now here following Baba is giving the answer.

Baba says, "Whoever is born is bound to die and one is constantly approaching death, not knowing when it will come. It is never certain if one will live to grow old. Yet people reserve the most important work of practising sa'dhana' for the time when the body has become completely enfeebled and the fatuous mind of old age has become entangled in the reactions of this life to such an extent that it is afraid of starting anything new. Ordinarily it is fear of one's approaching death that makes one think of God in old age. One's evil deeds begin to haunt one, and one starts praying and imploring God to save him or her from the consequences of one's deeds. There is no value in remembering God in old age, when it is not possible to concentrate the mind due to the weakness and disease of the body and its preoccupation with the reactions (sam'ska'ras) of the deeds of this life. The mind then is caught up in the infirmities of the body, in the diseases of old age, impending death, and most of all, in memories of past incidents, and it is impossible to concentrate it. For these reasons one is incapable of intuitional practice." (Ananda Marga Elementary Philosophy, '98, p.132)

This problem is such a common ailment that 99.9% of the people in the present society are caught up in this whirlpool. And by this way their whole life gets wasted. It is our duty to think again and again and reach the conclusion about what is the best approach to utilise this priceless human life, and guide others as well.

Goenka's Oil Was Stolen

Date: Mon, 16 Jul 2012 06:18:55
Subject: Goenka's Oil Was Stolen




This is one important incident which recently transpired. We should all think how this should be addressed.


Shriimati Seema Goenka of Tade Pade Gudam (A.P.) generously donated a huge container of cooking oil to Centre via the DSL Diidii of Rajmundari.

Seema Goenka kindey allotted that oil for didis camps etc. But Avadhutika Ananda Nitimaya Acarya interceded and instructed that DSL Diidii to bring that oil directly to Jhar Sugura where a margii would meet her. When DSL Diidii arrived at the station in Jhar Sugura, she was surprised to see that that Niitimaya's laokik brother-in-law (Diidiiji's laokik sister's husband) was there to receive the cargo and unload the oil container. That brother-in-law took away that huge vat of oil along with other cargo that was collected for Ananda Marga service projects etc, and he kept it for his laokik family.

The kind donor of the edible oil, Shrimati Seema of Tade Pade Gudam, has no idea about any of this. Indeed, at this very moment, she probably thinks that the oil she generously donated was used to feed all the wts and participants at the camps, RDS, etc. She does not know that her donation was hijacked and redirected to the laokika family of Ananda Niitimaya. Rather Seema Goenka thinks it was used by all Diidiis in the camp for their enjoyment. But the oil reached somewhere else. When all the Diidiis reached in RDS etc, then Ananda Niitimaya told them that there is no food and that they needed to go beg in the town and bring something eat.


So this is the tragic tale of how Diidiiji Ananda Niitimaya stole the oil donated by Srmati Seema Goenka and how Ananda Niitimaya furthermore mistreated her junior workers by depriving them of food.

Anyone who reads this, please forward this email and the entire Goenka family should be informed as well.

Can anyone tell more about respected Diidii Ananda Niitimaya.
