The advent of a great soul!

To live along with one’s immediate environment is the essence of Dharma, and the prophets are the paragons of Dharma. Over the time, to alleviate the pain and suffering of the ailing humanity they take advents and descend down the earth and propagate their ideology which is best suited for that particular time and circumstance. The world gets a messiah, a savior in flesh and blood. With the ascent of time, distortions creep in and the ideology taught by these great masters become murky until they come back again and propagate their teachings in a newer and more upgraded form. This cycle continues over and over again. But, there is a very important part or incidence which takes place in between. The advent of some great souls of extraordinary caliber who, by the virtue of their strong sense of service and zeal for the ideal, are born with the birthright to complete the tasks directed by the Lord. This month ushers in with it the birthday of one such great soul. The true and dedicated bhakta of Sree Sree Thakur, HIS great-grandson, Rev. Babai dada. The one whose every breath, every moment flows just for the fulfillment of the ideal. Such extraordinary souls are adored by one and all as deities and angels. They have the capacity to transform lives of millions of grief-stricken individuals into the heavenly breeze of bliss. There is no saying that how many individuals have found a new hope in their lives. How many lives have been shaped and molded in the hue of the ideal by the guidance of Rev. Babai dada. This magazine itself, would not be possible without the holy guidance of Rev. Babai dada. Although adored by millions, yet we find in him an epitome of humility who considers himself just a servant of Sree Sree Thakur. The Leela or the divine play of the Lord is always completed by such great devotees. When the Ideal leaves His physical frame, it is these devotees, these extraordinary souls, these Mahapurushas, in whom the Ideal is ever awake.

The 50th birthday of Rev. Babai dada was celebrated with absolute magnificence and splendor in Satsang Deoghar. The grand celebration was administrated and organized by Rev. Abin babu, where people from all across the nation as well as the neighboring countries accumulated and participated in the events. This again is a practical demonstration of Sree Sree Thakur’s ideology that when there is common ideal, the whole world turns into our own relation, the eternal concept of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam!
The Godliness peeps through Rev. Babai dada. On the occasion of his 50th Birthday, we offer our heartiest pranam at his holy feet and pray to the Almighty for his long life and sound health so that millions may get inspired and walk on the Ideal centric path by his holy guidance.

Vande Purushottamam!

Dr. Anurag Nath Kritiranjan

TO LOVE YOUR COUNTRY

LOVE YOUR FOREFATHERS

Reverential worship of forefathers,

their lands, temple-houses

with pious offerings

and valorous admiration for them

imparts energetic adherence

to the clan, country, hearth and home

with environmental fellow-feeling

and induces one’s heart

with ingrained affection for them

creating an abiding atmosphere

and sympathetic uplift

in the inner core of the being ;

so, I think

it should be an unavoidable

custom of the people

to act in this way

with an irresistible inducement

to their

lore

and affinity of love ;

if you wish to love your country,

love your forefathers

who reside in your being—

their hearth and home

temples and lands—

with every apt conscientious consciousness

and sanctified devoutness ;

be blessed

and bestow bliss

upon the people

and the country.

(The Message vol.7)

Sri Sri Thakur is lying on a cot with support on a pillow near the Kaltala house adjacent to the dam in a thatched hut. Chaturbhujda (Upadhyay) came and offered obeisance.

Sri Sri Thakur said in an affectionate tone, “Chaturbhuj, put your fullest efforts. (Later again HE said) Do you have a brother residing in Shillong? I have heard that he knows Bangla. See if you can bring him in here. Bring in some milkmen, some skilled smiths, if you can bring such people, the workshop can be run in full swing. People skilled in works like running lathe, soldering, electroplating etc can sustain their income from the workshop itself. If you can bring in some ‘Military Man’, it would be extremely useful – they can impart military training, you people shall have a sort of religious fort, which shall serve as a refuge tot those in need of shelter during hard times.

In the noon, discussions were going on about Palmistry, Astrology and Spiritualism.

Due to urge, a tension is produced in our brain cells and due to that tension; lines are produced in our palms. Same is the case of forehead. We ourselves are the creator of our own future. We are unaware of that but it can be observed from the palms. The time of birth of a person may predict his whole life in the same fashion. If, the passions ruling the person can be determined by observing the planetary positions at the time of birth, then their interactions in his life may infer the life of that person. If the circumference of a tire of a car is known, then we can easily deduce the distance travelled by it in a particular number of rotations. It is difficult to predict anything about those who are the masters of complexes, How they would react in a particular circumstance, entirely depends upon themselves (not the complexes). About me, Bhrigu has said that it can not be properly fathomed and said what all probabilities do I possess. When a man is goaded by God then this stands true for him. When a man has unwavering attachment towards God, he can even escape the fruits of his karma. Had Jatinda (Jatindranath Acharya-Chowdhury) listened to me and had not gone, he wouldn’t have died like that.

A boy in tapovan boarding is very sick and hence Sree sree Thakur is anxious. He is repeatedly asking about his condition. In the afternoon HE said,-- The offsprings of Hypogamous marriage can never be good. In them Treachery is to be found for sure. A girl of higher varna, if married to a lower varna boy, lacks the regard for her husband that lead to many unwanted consequences. In those cases, it is heard that the wife, out of intense hatred towards the husband, even goes on to abuse her children. There is a huge difference between Acquisition and Instinct. Newton was mathematician by instinct. There might be some who are more learned in mathematics than him but their learning may not have transformed into instincts. Instinct is normal just like a heart beats, ears hear, nose breathes or legs walk. A boy from higher pedigree might be utterly stupid in lack of proper culture, but within him the instincts are very much intact. When and where there is a disruption of instincts, it is for sure that somehow hypogamous marriage has crept into it or there has been some infraction in the principle of marriage. Owing to corruption, many a times, hypogamous offsprings are born in he so-called decent families. It is not impossible that in the womb of a Brahmani, a

shudra has sired an offspring who is acclaimed as a Brahmin offspring in the society. Then HE said – Owing to the complexes, sometimes, people hear something else than what is said to him. All these things indicate about his character. His nature and character is spoken up by himself (through his actions). Deducing these things, if someone else infers about his nature, he is considered as an Antaryami (Indweller). But the thing is not like that. Everything can be deduced by knowing the cause-effect relationship – Even after hearing it wrong, why did he hear it in that particular way and not anything else?

Q. Then when do we turn into deceitful devotees?
p. Sri Sri Thakur: If the door between doing and speaking are closed that closed door shall

make you a hypocrite.

Q. Then those, who are not what they look like, but can act like that, can they turn into

good devotees?

Shree Shree Thakur: Of course they can! If there is synchronization between their words, actions, and thoughts. See, In my childhood once I heard a story that a prostitute used to enact Jaidev’s wife in a theater. While enacting, one day something in her changed and she became crazy for God. The days at the stage theater came to an end – and in the stage of the worldly theater, her devotion deputed her in the act of devotion. She too, with a gradual ascent of time, completely forgot what she used to be; and her immediate environment, illumined by her words, her animated and ever alive ache (for God) her virtuous deeds, became enchanted by her service and became irradiated with her character’s vigorous zeal. Even after knowing her past, no one could ever again bring forth any such (unholy ) thoughts about her. Her Ideal held her hand and pulled her away from the ultimate heavenly luxuries of the world and roamed around them. Hell was extinguished, Heaven with a slight grin, embraced her and her fragrance illumined far and wide. Do you fathom why all these happened? Words and deeds gradually became attuned and the gateway to the thoughts was ushered in. And it was then that she ceased to be what she originally was.

Q: Is it possible that in an attempt to act in this manner, receiving adorations from people might turn the mind into a greedy one to receive adorations and may thereby lose the original trail?

Sree Sree Thakur: Stop being such an idiot! Have you gone crazy? It’s like reading the entire Ramayana and still calling Sita Rama’s aunt! The one who truly loves, does he ever think himself as a devotee? ₸ He speaks of love only, does only such things which are dictated by love, and his thoughts are shaped in the same fashion*. People call him a devotee. If he starts calling or thinking of himself what people call him then because of that the very reason (because of which people called him a devotee) would be negated and along with it the attunement between his deeds and thoughts too will be hampered. In an attempt of false artistic workmanship, many divulged deeds will be done. Because in his mind he will always work out the various ways people may call him a devotee. The door of words, deeds, and thoughts shall automatically shut down. And this closed door shall make it very clear to the people and abruptly they will comprehend and may even blurt out that he is nothing but a hypocrite. See then, how much huge difference does it make. Hence in his destiny, instead of adoration, only disrespect becomes normal.

DHARMA—NOT A LAZY DEVOTION

 

Dharma is not a lazy devotion,

it is active devoutness

that upholds our being

with a run towards becoming—

moulding the environment accordingly

with a meaningful adjustment

of one’s intelligence

and knowledge,

that effulges through

one’s personal characteristics actively.

(The Message vol.2)

ENJOYING THE BELOVED THROUGH JAAJAN

When love or wisdom makes life elated,

then only does the inclination to Jaajan

become ardent in searching for new persons

in various ways;

it wants to speak in various ways

and in various fashions

about what is dear to it,

and by doing so

wants to enjoy in various ways;

whenever you see that this searching and finding

is beginning to stop,

the perception and expansion

of the beloved within you

is becoming inert! 58

(Chalar sathi)

sharper. Continuous Practice of Mantra [Holy Name] helps in developing concentration, fostering peace, increasing stability and sensitivity, induces positive and curative force in mind. The Holy Name keeps alive the coordination between body, mind, and soul. The Supreme Man of the era [Yug Purushottam] is the living emblem of the highest evolved Holy Name of the age. During the trance, Thakur said that “…I was the Sound.Sound is my creation, therefore you are created by me.Only sound is your spirit, no doubt.” From the above statement, it is clearly understood that Sree Sree Thakur is the conscious manifestation of Holy Name that is imparted at the time of initiation. The Holy name is the vibratory image of the causative being. This Holy Name is evolved into you, me and everything else in this world. He who is the causative Being is transformed into spiritual and material planes. Sree Sree Thakur once said that I can not be fathomed completely. There was no one like me before and no one will come after me. The essence of any vibration is present in the Holy Name. So it is aptly called Nameless Name. If you culture this Holy name properly with adherence to the Ideal then your past will be unfolded before you.

RITWICK SANGH [Guardian of Society]: Sree Sree Thakur formed an elite and seasoned group and named it as Ritwick Sangh [is termed as guardian of society]. He has endowed massive responsibilities on the workers of Satsang. As per Thakur “Your responsibility is much greater than that of a Commander-in-Chief in a battlefield. Your fight is against death, disease, disintegration, ignorance, and poverty. See, that not even a single moment of your life is wasted in this battle. Your only duty is to fulfill the need and desire of the Supreme Father. Address yourself to this task with all the earnestness of your soul, the force of your determination and tenacity of your zeal. You will see, how by virtue of your austere endeavor, impossible has become possible. Out of deeper penance emanates personated decision. One cannot but carry out the decision which emanates from every fiber of one’s being. We have to make all round preparation covering all aspects so as to enable us to do away with all sorts of human poverty, sorrows, sufferings, and discontents, and to show to the world what is true freedom and progress ………”. Hence the progress of the society has been entrusted on the Ritwicks which can only be accomplished by the virtue of their actions and dedication. To keep the workers and Ritwicks active Sree Sree Thakur started Quarterly Workers conferences to discuss the performance and hurdles and get the directions for the action plans from the Achrayadev.
THE ACHARYA PARAMPARA: The Living Ideal. HE who does and demonstrates to the disciples the practical materialization of the Lord’s dicta through his words, thoughts, and actions, who has developed every intricate detail of his master’s dicta in his own habit and behavior is called an Acharya. Discipline comes from discipleship and discipleship is attained by following the Achraya. While Sree Sree Thakur was in his mortal frame HE was the Achraya. Further, with regard to successive Acharyas, Sree Sree Thakur had said that, if anyone in the family of Avatar Purush, who is whole-heartedly devoted, dedicated, lovable and serviceable, He who can efficiently manage and sustain HIS doctrines, with sympathizing attitude, maintains uniformity, a prudent administrator, with non-rebellious approach and who is ever affectionate, he should be followed. If any person of such qualities is not available in His family members, then follow the one who is Son by Culture till you find the above qualities in the family of Avtar Purush. Sree Sree Thakur chose HIS eldest son Sree Sree Boroda [Sree Amarendranath Chakroborty] to be his successor and bestowed Him with all the authorities and responsibilities to run the entire proceedings of Satsang. In spite of many untold obstacles, Sree Sree Boroda broadened the horizon of Satsang by leaps and bounds and became hope for millions of disciples of Satsang as a Living Ideal. Let me narrate an incidence in this context. Once Mr.David (a devotee from the USA) asked Sree Sree Boroda “Sri Sri Thakur is our Living Ideal but He is no more in the physical frame. At present who is our Living Ideal? In response, Sree Sree Boroda said: “Sri Sri Thakur is our Living Ideal “. David da reiterated the same question. Sree Sree Boroda’s response was the same as earlier, but David da kept on repeating the same question. At last, Sree Sree Boroda replied, “You can take me as your Living Ideal now, but Sri Sri Thakur is our LIVING IDEAL.” But an important point to be noted here that Sree Sree Boroda had never ever projected Himself as Achrayadev, rather He had always said He was trying to be a pet dog of Sree Sree Thakur. Sree Sree Boroda’s lucid explanation to the vast ocean of Thakur’s literature got more clarity than ever before. His farsighted guidance gave a new dimension to Satsang. With the passage of time, Sree Sree Boroda bestowed all the day-to-day activities of Satsang to HIS eldest son Sree Sree Dada [Revered Ashoke Chakroborty], the present Achrayadev of Satsang. Sree Sree Dada is striving day in and day out to generate Ista bodha (Lord’s consciousness) in the hearts and souls of millions. Like Sree Sree Dada was to Sree Sree Boroda, similarly Revered Babai da (present Achrayadev’s eldest son) is proving the same for His father. Rev. Babai da’s active devotion, valorous adherence, soothing personality revealed in His words, deeds, gesture, and behavior is paving a healthy and sound leadership for the Satsang in future. The mission, vision, and objective of Satsang as laid down by Sree Sree Thakur can be materialized only if the command and Wishes of Achrayadev are fulfilled. The above three tenets [Satnam, Literature & Ritwick Sang] if followed by ignoring Achrayadev, it would be an irreparable blunder.
p. To conclude, I would say that Sree Sree Thakur has, for the benefit of the whole humanity, brought forth the divine chariot of Satsang and the tenets described above are its wheels. Truly, This is the chariot of Lord Jagannath Himself!

I am Mad about You!

                           

 

Composed By: Bijaya Ketan Sahu

Bangalore

 

 

There are many mad persons,

mad for material happiness of world;

But, Oh My Lord, I don’t know

for you only, why I am so mad.

 

 

 

When I think myself neglecting you,

I feel no one with me, I am all alone!

Again, when I find you are within me,

My heart becomes peaceful like heaven.

 

 

 

I can’t stay a moment without you,

What a magic you have done to me!

I find always your sweet smiled face,

when-ever and where-ever I see.

 

 

 

My lips only call unto You,

My tongue sings the songs of your fame.

My eyes drop tears in your love,

My tongue recites your holy name.

 

 

 

My soul awaits for the time

to you, when it will meet;

When that day will come Oh supreme God,

I will find my destination at your holy feet.

 

 

 

You always come in my day’s work

At night you come in dreams of mine.

Let my life go on like this

Oh Lord, thinking of you every time.

‘Cos Here You Are’

Riddhi Dipan Dasgupta

Integrated Masters Degree (English)

Agartala, Tripura

I do not know what happened,

what events transpired,

which stars set in heaven

moved in sync,

what fates conspired.

 

But here you are,

and your father before you,

my eternal emancipators!

Sinned I have

time and again.

Moved ‘gainst

the dictates of the world.

Scorched,

Parched,

what hope did I have

till you came by.

A gentle breeze soothes the scalded heart.

Do I know you sire?

‘I am you

and you I’.

I…I recall who you are,

and your father before you,

Lords! My Eternal Emancipators!

One cannot step into the same river twice.

A decade or five –

mere wisps of vapour.

 

 

The lone and level sands stretch far away.

I have seen things people wouldn’t believe.

Now it’s time to die.

But then,

you stop me.

 

A beautiful sunrise.

In your majesty’s service

reborn.

Each day a new one.

Bliss.

Conflicts and chaos, no more do I quail.

‘Cos here you are,

and your father before you,

my eternal emancipators!

Miseries are initiated by our senses. If we are to become truly free and learn to live by God’s will, we need to learn to control the passions that result from the way we react to our senses. For example, we may crave for certain foods. When we are deprived of them we become disturbed and possibly even become angry. Gaining freedom from these likes and dislikes is what we mean by taming the passions. When we are able to do this, we gain the freedom to do God’s will and to love others. Everything God has created is good. It means we should enjoy what is necessary for our welfare but also forego all the indulgences based on our desires for sensual pleasure.

We cannot simply ignore the passions. With untrained passions, it is like having a team of wild horses pulling our wagon. We think we are the driver, but the horses decide to go where they want. These wild horses are the untamed passions. The challenge is to harness and train your passions so that they will follow our commands, just like a trained team of horses is obedient to the commands of the driver. Our passions are like a pet. If you have ever had a puppy you would be able to relate that how they take a shoe or any other item and chew on it and tear it apart. They growl when we try to take it back from them. This is normal behavior for a young pup, but not one we want to continue. If we do not train the puppy, in the beginning, it will stay wild and even turn against us later on. Our passions are like puppies. Unfortunately, many of us in this world have grown up without properly training our passions. In this context, Sree Sree Thakur Anukulchandra blesses us by His divine message as, “Almost all the miseries men have in the world come from the addiction to ‘Kamini-Kanchan’ (women and gold). It is better to remain as far away as possible from these two. He who only wails, “My passion and pride do not go, do not go”, will find they never go. One should become habituated to those activities and thoughts, which have no scent of pride and passion; then the mind forgets them. If thoughts of passion and pride do not arise in the mind, how can they show up? The way out is to remain always absorbed in higher thoughts

and activities.”

Sri Sri Thakur Anukulchnadra further says in

another message as,

"Whenever you are not able to discard your passionate habits/activities which are against your dream achievement,-- it is to be concluded that your desire to achieve the

same is not real”.

It is very much true in our lives. We dream to achieve many things in life but most of the times we do not bother to control our lifestyle so that nothing should go against that dream objective. Hence, throughout the life, although several good ideas come to our mind, we often are not able to materialize them in action. Everyday so many good ideas appear in our mind, but we are never able to materialize most of them in life and we always postpone good activities. Hence, if we want to achieve something, we must coordinate our whole lifestyle accordingly so that none of my activities (passionate act) should ever hinder the desired goal. And as usual, we must be attached with the living ideal and embodiment of divine ‘Love’ and should surrender to Him and follow Him uncompromisingly to achieve our desired goal in a perfect and idealistic way.

Once a great poet of Bengal came to Sree Sree Thakur Anukulchandra and was very much interested in performing ‘sadhna’ (Avowed Activity) under the guidance of Sri Sri Thakur. However, he wanted to know, what he was in his previous birth. He repeatedly asked this question to Sri Sri Thakur but Sri Sri Thakur always used to avoid replying the same. In this perspective, once he planned to leave the Satsang Ashram and told Sri Sri Thakur that when He was not able to say this much then

he had no faith & confidence on Him to accept HIM as a ‘Guru’ (Spiritual Master). On that context, Sri Sri Thakur asked him to stop for a while and started telling various negative things about his present life. Sri Sri Thakur had justified that if He would reveal some of that poet’s present life incidences, then he at least can recall verifying. Then that poet felt ashamed and asked Sri Sri Thakur not to reveal anything more. Then Sri Sri Thakur told him that in his last birth, he was a so called monk and tried to do ‘sadhna’ by abnormally suppressing the passions, and hence he had inherited a lot of negative attributes in his character in this birth. However, if he would follow and proceed according to Sri Sri Thakur’s guidance of ‘Jajan, Jaajan Ishtabhrity’, then he would be successful to adjust his complexes and would be able to progress in any endeavor. And that is the realistic path of ‘Jibanmukti’ (Free from the sins of life)”. When we first begin to tame our passions, we may experience inner irritation. As if we wrestle with them, we will find that there is a block in the mind. In relevance to this, during a conversation, Sri Sri Thakur says,

“When our passions, instincts are utilized for ‘Ishtaswarthpratishtha’ (To fulfill the interest of ideal/God), then they are no more treated as ‘Passion’(s), rather they become our essential ‘friend’(s).To make & apply the passions & instincts for the interest of ‘Ishta’ (GOD/Ideal) is referred as to become ‘Jibanmukta’ (Free from the sins of life)”.

Sree Sree Thakur says, Even If a man is a thief, a cheater or a criminal, then also if he is concentric to the ideology (of the Ideal), he can overcome these any moment and change his situation instantly. But, he who is concentric to multiple ideologies, even if he would be a moralist, then also his future is grim. There would not be any constraint for a man with the kind of historical negative personality as ‘Ratnakar’ or ‘Bilwamangal’, who were able to change their lives abruptly by attaching themselves with a concentric love centre. But there is certainly an issue for the people who are hypocrites and who are not ideal centric. Sree Sree Thakur says,

“When ‘Adherence’ is imbibed, set up internally, then inner being itself gets equipped accordingly. Whenever you will be able to understand what do you want and what to do in which situation, and then you will be able to understand for others also. ‘Satchalan’ means the moving with continuity, i.e. the existential movement”.

We can not overturn our characteristics overnight, nor can we suppress them by some magic. However, if we love ‘Ishta’ ( The Almighty, the living ideal ), and be always concentric accordingly along with chanting the ‘Name’, Meditation, Jajan & Jaajan, then our character is controlled in a positive manner over the period of time and the same may appear as a miraculous transformation.
Now the million dollar question is that how we can initiate to train ourselves. In relevance to that, Sri Sri Thakur says

,“You should see how to fulfill the ideal. Through that objective, even if you may solve one problem, then you will observe that you are able to control many problems. Many problems will be simple if your prime objective is to proceed with ‘Ishtaswarthpratishtha’ (To fulfill the interest of Ideal/God). This is my theory of the most ordinary man’s concept. Problems are enrooted from a passionate lifestyle. And solutions are yielded from ‘Ishtarthi’ and ‘Ishtanurag’ (Interest to Ideal/God and Love to Ideal/God) lifestyle. If you proceed towards Him, everything will be under control”.

However, failure, an obstacle in any endeavor creates depression and we often fail to continue to maintain the ideological path perfectly. In such relevance, Sree Sree Thakur says, “There are ups and downs of the wave. And wave exists with these ups and downs. Depression can not affect if we maintain to proceed towards goal. ‘Depression’ is yielded due to our unorganized/uncontrolled passions. We should not be led by that. To organize our passions in the interests of Ishta/Ideal is the only remedy of this….In this situation, we should analyze where is my fault to have happened (Had been depressed) that. And by finding out the faults, we should control them accordingly. Through such practice, we can become ‘Noble’, ‘Experienced’ and ‘Sublime’. Then all our instincts are organized and coordinated through one channel”. In the conclusive part, I would like to refer the very saying of Sree Sree Thakur as He says during a conversation,” We need Conviction. With all our passions, we need to be Ishtaswarthapratishthpanna (Whose only interest to fulfill the wish of Ideal). If someone becomes ‘Ishtaswarthapratishthapanna’, .i.e., if his libidos are perfectly set in ‘Ishta’, then all the obstacles are appeared as just like nothing to him. By continuing to fulfill the wish of ‘Ishta’, to comply the instruction of ‘Ishta’, we gain the energy and confidence to drive the people. Name, fame, wealth are bound to surge there. Such people are called ‘Ishwarkoti purush’.They possess uncompromising determination. They have an attitude of ‘Commitment’, that they must do it. And to achieve means to love and to continue to be in good of Him (Ishta). For example, in ‘Ramayana’, we witness that Hanuman had been sitting on a mountain of Cape Comorin and planning how to rescue the divine mother Janaki. Finally, he jumped and by a single jump, he crossed the sea to rescue the divine mother. When even Lord Ramchandra was ready to forgive Ravan, Hanuman would not. It is only through unconditional and unwavering ‘love’ towards His Lord, such type of conviction develops. Conviction is the touchstone.

We are blessed to have Sri Sri Thakur’s guidance. Sri Sri Thakur has taught us that if ‘Dharma’ is there, then ‘Arth’, ‘Kam’ and ‘Moksh’ too will follow the suite.‘Dharma’ is the prime and pioneer of life. ‘Dharma’ brings meaningful adjustment of all factors of life. So, if ‘Dharma’ flares up then economic adjustment becomes normal. Because, it is through the adjustment of complexes only, by which our ‘activities’ are adjusted. And it is ‘Adjusted activities’ only, which create wealth. Wealth is nothing but the accumulated result of need fulfilling effort. I would like to quote the divine inspirational message of Sree Sree

Thakur as,

“To materialize the wishes of Beloved
The Love With every fulfillment
And sharp tactful immediacy—
Throwing behind all other calculating back-out tenors Is the only way to achieve Love, Energy, and perfect Skill.”

Let us swear that we will propagate the gospel of ‘Love’ and the very vision of the Almighty Sree Sree Thakur Anukulchandra & Satsang so that it is materialized across the globe bringing peace, happiness & success in every existence

in this universe.

(The message vol.7)

Satsang Ashram Deoghar is ever a busy place with thousands of devotees visiting on a regular basis. The past month since the previous publication of Bliss has been no exception, with devotees especially converging on two occasions −

First being the 27th of May when the Holy Snan Utsav of Parampremamay Shree Shree Thakur Anukulchandra was celebrated at Satsang Ashram Deoghar. At 8 am, ashtadhaatu vigrahas of Shree Shree Thakur and Shree Shree Boroma were placed on a chariot and brought to the swimming pool in Thakur Bungalow where the vigrahas were bathed by Rev. Acharyadev in a ceremonious ritual amidst chanting of mantras and kirtan as the throngs of devotees bathed in supreme bliss. After evening prayer, a satsang was organized beside the pool where the singers of Deoghar led by Dr. Swapan Mondol sang bhajans commemorating the event of the Supreme Lord going for his bathing ritual.

The next occasion was on the 7th of June, when the quinquagenarian birth anniversary of Rev. Babaidada (Rev. Arkadyuti Chakravarty) was celebrated on a grand scale. The programs included among other things an hour and half long musical tribute (sangeetanjali), a sand art performance describing the life and journey of Shree Shree Thakur by the acclaimed sand artist Shri Rabin Bar, a performance of dhaak (traditional Bengali drum), followed by bihu (the traditional music and dance form of Assam); a satsang post-evening prayer; a laser and fireworks display, followed by a concert by the renowned Tollywood singer Shri Anupam Roy.

The entire Ashram was decorated gorgeously adding to its celestial radiance. Among the uncountable thousands and thousands of devotees that thronged Deoghar, there were innumerable figures of prominence such as Shri Arjun Munda, the former chief minister of Jharkhand; several members of parliament and members of Legislative Assemblies from various states; Shri Shantanu Singh (IAS), the Home Secretary to the Govt. of Tripura; Shri Jogendra Singh, Intelligence Bureau, Dhanbad, Jharkhand, etc. to name a few.

Another occurrence of major significance was when the very next day, on the 8th of June, Rev. Acharyadev ordained Rev. Abin da (Rev. Abinendranath Chakravarty) as a Prati-Ritwik of Shree Shree Thakur.

TULSI

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Ocimum tenuiflorum (Ocimum sanctum)

[*FAMILY: *]Lamiaceae (is a family of flowering plants commonly known as the mint ordeadnettle family. Many of the plants are aromatic in all parts and include widely used culinary herbs, such as basil, mint, rosemary, sage, savory, marjoram, oregano, hyssop, thyme and lavender. Some species are shrubs, trees (such as teak), or, rarely, vines. Many members of the family are widely cultivated, not only for their aromatic qualities but also their ease of cultivation, since they are readily propagated by stem cuttings.Besides those grown for their edible leaves, some are grown for decorative foliage, such as Coleus)

The two main morphotypes cultivated in India and Nepal is green-leaved (Rama or Sri or Lakshmi tulsi) and purple-leaved (Krishna tulsi).

HABITAT: Basils are native to tropical Asia, likely having originated in India. Robust Tulsi varieties readily grow wild in many areas of Asia and Africa. Tulsi is a bushy perennial shrub, usually cultivated annually from seed, although it can also be propagated from tip or root cuttings. It is usually planted (or transplanted) immediately after the rainy season ends. In good soil and hot sunny weather, Tulsi may grow to a meter or more in height and be ready for harvest in a few months. Much larger specimens have been noted and under special circumstances an individual plant may live for a decade or more.

POTTING: Place the tulsi seeds on top of the soil and tamp them for good soil to seed contact, cover the seeds with 1/4 inch layer of compost or soil. Water the seeds with sprayer and place them where they receive part morning sun. Keep the soil constantly moist until the germination, which will take around 1-2 weeks.

PARTS USED- leaves of Tulsi are most commonly used for their health benefits, although all parts of the plant, including the roots, stems, flowers and seeds, have significant and differing medicinal properties.

 

MEDICINAL PROPERTIES: Tulsi is well known for its myriad medicinal properties — antibacterial, antifungal, antipyretic, antioxidant, antiseptic and anticancer.

Of the nearly 40 secondary metabolites that have medicinal value, the genes and enzymes responsible for the production of 14 metabolites have been mapped on the genome. Not much information on the pathway is available for the remaining metabolites. Of the 14 metabolites that have been mapped, eight have anti-cancer properties and the remaining six have antifungal, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and cardio protective properties. The results were published recently in the journal BMC Plant Biology.

Rama (green leaves) and Krishna (purple leaves) — have been found to contain very high concentration of these medicinally important metabolites. Between the two domesticated subtypes, the Rama subtype contains “high abundance” of medicinally important metabolites. “The concentration of eugenol (anti-infective) and ursolic acid (anticancer) in both leaf and stem was more in Rama than Krishna subtype.

From regular fever to some of the deadliest and most fatal bacterial and viral infections – tulsi can help cure or to some extent, facilitate treating most diseases.  Dr. Simran Saini from New Delhi suggests consuming a drink made by boiling tulsi leaves and adding about 2grams of black pepper to it. This drink helps in building your immunity, acts as an antibacterial element and facilitates recovery from dengue. The quintessential kadha – a mix of ginger, tulsi leaves, peppercorn (crushed) in boiling hot water – is usually seen as a potion that can put most illnesses straight. Apart from these there is a bundle of other beneficial properties that this humble plant boasts of, take a look –

1. It acts as a detoxifying, cleansing and purifying agent – both from within and without.

2. Therefore it is good for skin – both when consumed and applied topically.

3. It is also effective in treating skin disorders, itching and issues like ringworms.

4. It can be made into teas or can be had raw, powdered, paste or in form herbal supplements.

5. It has antibiotic, anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-carcinogenic properties.

Yoga Mudras

Swarashtra Srivastava

BSc (Zoology), MA (English)

Varanasi

Entirely distinct and based on the principle of Ayurveda, yoga mudras are understood as a healing modality. The Sanskrit word mudra is translated as a gesture. A mudra may involve the whole body or could be a simple hand position. Mudras used in combination with yoga breathing exercises enliven the flow of prana in the body, thereby energizing different parts of the body.

The Five Elements and the Mudra Therapy:-

The universe is made of five elements, and each of the five fingers is represented by one of these elements.

Thumb – The fire (Agni)
Index finger – The air (Vayu)
Middle finger – The ether (Aakasha)
Ring finger – The earth (Prithvi)
Small finger – The water (Jala)

When these five elements are not in balance, we can experience disease in the body. Our fingers have the characteristics of these elements and each of these five elements serves a specific and important function within the body. The fingers are essentially electrical circuits. The use of mudras adjusts the flow of energy – affecting the balance of air, fire, water, earth, ether – and facilitate healing.

Mudras create a subtle connection with the instinctual patterns in the brain and influence the unconscious reflexes in these areas. The internal energy is, in turn, balanced and redirected, affecting change in the sensory organs, glands, veins and tendons.

Types of Mudras:-

হ’টে যাওয়াটা বরং দুর্ব্বলতা নয়কো, কিন্তু চেষ্টা না করাই দুর্ব্বলতা । তুমি কোন-কিছু ক’রতে প্রাণপণে চেষ্টা করা সত্ত্বেও যদি বিফলমনোরথ হও, ক্ষতি নাই । তুমি ছেড়ো না, ঐ অম্লান চেষ্টাই তোমাকে মুক্তির দিকে নিয়ে যাবে ।

শ্রী শ্রী ঠাকুর : এক বছরের শীত যেমন আর এক বছরের মতো নয়, তেমনি বিভিন্ন যুগের বার-বার আবর্ত্তন হলেও একটা সত্য বা দ্বাপর আর একটা সত্য বা দ্বাপরের মত নয়। তাই পূর্ব্ব দ্বাপরে পুরুষোত্তমের আবির্ভাব হয়েছিল বলে যে পরবর্ত্তী দ্বাপরে তাঁর আবির্ভাব হতে হবে তার কোন মানে নেই। আবার, দ্বাপর বলে যে পুরুষোত্তম এসেছিলেন, তাও কথা নয়। যা হোক, যে-কারণে, যে অবস্থায় তাঁর আবির্ভাব হয়েছিল তেমনতর অবস্থা ও প্রয়োজনের সমাবেশ হলে আবার তদনুরূপ আবির্ভাব ঘটতে পারে, সে যখনই হোক।

”স্বতঃসন্ত যখন আসেন, তখন একজনই আসেন। পরে যারা আসে তাঁরা ‘বানায়ে হুয়ে সন্ত’ , -- তাঁদের পাবকপুরুষ বলা যায়। তাঁরা স্বতঃসন্তদের অনুপ্রেরণা-অভিদীপ্ত সাধক।“

চন্দ্রভূষণদা —- ইষ্টভৃতি তো করি ।

শ্রীশ্রীপিতৃদেব —- অফিসে (সৎসঙ্গ ফিলান্ থ্রপিতে ) তো পাঠান না ।

অতঃপর শ্রীশ্রীপিতৃদেব অভ্যাগতদের ঘরের ভিতরে বসতে বললেন ।

সকলে ঘরের মধ্যে এসে আরও কাছে বসতেই শ্রীশ্রীপিতৃদেব বললেন —- শ্রীশ্রীঠাকুরই অফিস নির্মাণ করেন । তিনি স্বয়ং ওখানে এসে বসতেন । তিনি যেমন-যেমন নির্দেশ দিয়েছেন আমরা সেইরকম করি । তাঁর যেমন নির্দেশ, আমাদের যেমন তিনি অভ্যস্ত করিয়ে দিয়ে গেছেন তেমনই আজও করি । আমাদের জীবনের সাধনাই হ’ল —— তিনি যেমনভাবে চলতে ও করতে নির্দেশ দিয়ে গেছেন ঠিক-ঠিক সেইভাবেই চলা, বলা ও করা ।

চন্দ্রভূষণদা —- আলোচনা পত্রিকায় প্রকাশিত হয়েছিল আপনার (শ্রীশ্রীপিতৃদেবের ) নামে ইষ্টভৃতি পাঠাতে । আপনার নামে ইষ্টভৃতি পাঠাতে হবে, না সেক্রেটারীর নামে ?

শ্রীশ্রীপিতৃদেব —- আমার নামে যদি পাঠাতে হয় তাহ’লে আপনার তাতে কোন আপত্তি আছে ? ঠাকুর থাকতেই ঠাকুরের নামে, আমার নামে এবং সেক্রেটারীর নামে ইষ্টভৃতি আসত এবং আজও আসে । শ্রীশ্রীঠাকুর স্বাক্ষর (signature ) ক’রে দিয়েছেন । ঠাকুর এই ব্যপারে registered power of attorney দিয়ে গেছেন । আপনি দেখতে চান ? দেখাব ?

চন্দ্রভূষণদা —- না-না ! আপনার কথার উপরই বিশ্বাস আছে । দেখে কী করব ? আমি এসব জানতাম না ।

শ্রীশ্রীপিতৃদেব —- আপনি উকিল, তাইনা ? আপনারা সকলে শিক্ষিত, জ্ঞানী ও বুদ্ধিমান ব্যক্তি । আমার জ্ঞান-বুদ্ধি নেই । আমি যা’ করি তা’ ঠাকুরের আদেশানুসারেই করি । আমার নামে ইষ্টভৃতি পাঠান বা না পাঠান তাতে কিছু এসে যায় না । আপনাদের প্রতি আমার ভালবাসা আছে । সেই স্নেহ, মমতা ও প্রাণের টান আছে বলেই এ-সব বলছি । আমার বোধ—- ঠাকুরের নির্দেশ মেনে চলায় জন, দেশ, জাতি সবার কল্যাণ । ঠাকুর ঠাকুরই………….(বলতে বলতে শ্রীশ্রীপিতৃদেবের কণ্ঠস্বর আবেগে রুদ্ধ হ’য়ে আসে ) ।

তোয়ালে দিয়ে আঁখির কোণে জমাট-বাঁধা অশ্রু মুছে নিয়ে শ্রীশ্রীপিতৃদেব বলে চলেছেন —- চলার পথে প্রথমে ঠাকুর, তারপর organisation (সংগঠন ) । ঠাকুর পুরুষোত্তম । তিনি সবকিছু জানতেন । আপনারা যখন সকলেই তাঁর দর্শন ও সঙ্গ করেছেন তখন কেন এমন করছেন ? আমরা যখন সকলেই তাঁর সন্তান তখন আবার division (বিভেদ ) কিসের ? আমি আপনাদের কোন উপদেশ দিচ্ছি না । আমি তো মূর্খ । অনেকদিন ধরে মনে ব্যথা ছিল । আপনাদের সকলকে একসঙ্গে সামনে পেয়ে সবকিছু খোলাখুলি বলায় মন হাল্কা হ’য়ে গেল । আপনাদের সকলকে দেখে আমি খুব আনন্দিত । আমার কথায় আপনার রাগ হয়নি তো ? মন খারাপ হয়নি তো ?

চন্দ্রভূষণদা —- আমরা তো উপদেশ নিতেই এসেছি । আপনি রাগেই বলুন আর অনুরাগেই (প্রেমে ) বলুন, যেমনি ক’রেই বলুন আর যা-ই বলুন আমরা তা অবনতমস্তকে গ্রহণ করি ও করবও ।

আপনার সব কথাই আমার কাছে উপদেশতুল্য । আমরা তো আপনার উপদেশই গ্রহণ করতে এসেছি, যাতে আমরা সকলে শ্রীশ্রীঠাকুরের পথে চলতে পারি ।

ঐ সত্তাকে অবলম্বন বা অধিকার করে থাকে বলেই

তাকে আধ্যাত্মিকতা বলে,

আর এই আধ্যাত্মিকতাই হচ্ছে

তার বেঁচে বেড়ে চলার আবেগ –

যার যেমন বৈশিষ্ট বা বিশেষত্ব

—তেমন করে।“

(দর্শন-বিধায়না)

অধ্যাত্ম পুরুষের এই বস্তুসত্তার কোন দিকটাই নজর এড়ায় না। সবার মধ্যে এবং সবকিছুর মধ্যে তিনি আধ্যাত্মিকতা সন্দর্শন করেন এবং তা জাগিয়ে তুলতে প্রযত্নপর হন।

সর্ব্বশেষ কথা, লৌকিক জীবন যার যত শিষ্ট, সম্যক, সুতৎতপর, আধ্যাত্মিক জীবনেও সে ততখানি অগ্রসর। এ বিষয়ে কোন সন্দেহ নেই। বস্তুতান্ত্রিকতার সব কিছুই অধি-আধ্যাত্মিকতা। বস্তু থেকে তার আত্মিক চলনকে আলাদা করা যায় না।শ্রী শ্রী ঠাকুর বলেন, বস্তুর মধ্যে আছে অস্তু অর্থাৎ অস্তিত্ব – থাকার চলন। এই চলাটা যাতে বিধৃত হয়, অপর কথায়, থাকাটা যেন পাকা হয়, তেমন করাটাই আধ্যাত্মিকতা।

নববেদ বিধাতা গ্রন্থ থেকে উদ্ধৃত[*]

আমার ছোটবেলা কেটেছে ঠাকুরবাড়ীতে (দেওঘর) । তখনকার অনেক স্মৃতি ম’নে পড়ে । ঠাকুর বাড়িতে পূজ্যপাদ বড়দা তখন নাটমন্ডপে বসতেন….সেখানে সকালবেলা সত্যানুসরণ পাঠ হত । ঠাকুরবাড়ির সব বালক বালিকা আরও গুরুজনেরা সবাই উপস্থিত থাকতেন । এক-একটি বাণীর ব্যাখ্যা করা হত । তাতে অংশ গ্রহণ করেছি । পূজ্যপাদ বড়দা ব্যাখ্যা করে বুঝিয়ে বলতেন । মুগ্ধ হ’য়ে শুনতাম সকলে । আগের দিন রাতে ছোটঠাকুমার কাছে পরের দিনের সত্যানুসরণ পাঠের ব্যাখ্যা নিয়ে আলোচনাও করতাম । একটা বাণীতে আছে ----- " অনুরোধ কর, কিন্তু হুকুম করতে যেও না ।” ঠাকুমা বললেন—-‘ঠাকুর যা’ বললেন উনি স্বয়ং তাই ছিলেন…..আর সেটা হাতেকলমে ক’রে আমাদের দেখিয়ে দিয়েছেন । কথায়-কথায় শ্রীশ্রীঠাকুর একদিন বললেন ----- " আনন্দবাজারে আজ কি ডাল হয়ছে রে সুধা?” (সুধা আমার ছোটঠাকুমা) সুধা- আগ্গে ছোলার ডাল ঠাকুর…..শ্রীশ্রীঠাকুর --- " আমারে একটু দিবি নাকি? “……কি অপূর্ব লীলা!!! তাঁরই সুধা…..তাঁরই আনন্দবাজার । কিন্তু চাওয়াটা কি রকম? কি মধুর! অন্তরযামী…..তাঁর অন্তর ছোঁওয়া উক্তি । এইরকম উক্তি শুনে কত মানুষের ভেতরকার শক্তি দ্বিগুণ, ত্রিগুন হ’য়ে যেত তার ইয়ত্তা নেই ।

আর একটি ঘটনার কথা মনে হচ্ছে । বড় ঠাকুমার (সুষমা দেবী, ঠাকুর স্নেহ করে বিজলি মা বলে ডাকতেন) কাছে শোনা ---- তখন আমার বাবার জন্ম হয়নি । পাবনা আশ্রমের এক্কেবারে আদিযুগ-সংগঠনের যুগ । আমার বড় ঠাকুমা কোথা থেকে কিছু পয়সা পেয়েছিলেন । এইসময় শ্রীশ্রীঠাকুর একদিন বড় ঠাকুমা কে বললেন—-“আমার খুব ল্যাংচা খেতে ইচ্ছা করছে ।” ঠাকুমা খুব আনন্দ ক’রে দয়ালের জন্য নিয়ে গেলেন … শ্রীশ্রীঠাকুর খুব খুশি হলেন । এইরকম করে রোজ শ্রীশ্রীঠাকুর এর জন্য ল্যাংচা নিয়ে যেতে থাকলেন । তারপর গেল পয়সা ফুরিয়ে । ঠাকুমা ভাবছেন ঠাকুরের কাছে যাই কি ক’রে খালি হাতে ---- তবু রোজ শ্রীশ্রীঠাকুরের চরণে না গিয়ে আবার ভালও লাগে না । কিন্তু একি অদ্ভুত লীলা! শ্রীশ্রীঠাকুর বড় ঠাকুমাকে দূর থেকেই দেখে বললেন——-” আর ল্যাংচা খাব না ।”….. ঠাকুমা তো শুনে হতভম্ব! যে কথাটা জপ করতে-করতে মনে কষ্ট নিয়ে তাঁর কাছে আসছিলেন….. শ্রীশ্রীঠাকুর তা সহজে সহজ ক’রে দিলেন । অন্তরযামী যে তিনি….. অন্তরে-অন্তরে অণুরনণ তিনিই করাতে পারেন ।

আমার বাবাকে দাদু (কৃষ্ণপ্রসন্ন ভট্টাচার্য্য) বলতেন ----- " সবার কাছে হিসেব ক’রে কথা বলবি । ঠাকুরের কাছে সব কথা বলতে পারিস্ ।” সহজ সুন্দর! তাঁর কাছে মানুষ কি বা গোপন করবে! অন্তরের প্রত্যন্ত কোণা কানাচ সব যিনি দেখতে পাচ্ছেন ----- তাঁর কাছে কি আর লুকাবে মানুষ! আমি খুব শৈশবে শ্রীশ্রীঠাকুর দর্শন করেছি ।

ঠাকুমাদের চোখে…..বাবার চোখে প্রত্যেক দিন শ্রীশ্রীঠাকুর দর্শন করতাম । আজ তাঁরা নেই কিন্তু নানা ঘটনা মনে পড়ে তাদের শ্রীশ্রীঠাকুর দর্শনের…..যা আমি জীবনে পেয়েছি তাতে আমার জীবন ধন্য ।

।। বন্দে পুরুষোত্তমম্ ।।

দীক্ষা হইলো মনস্ত্বাতিক উন্নতির সোপান।

দৈনন্দিন জীবনে আমাদের কাজের মাঝে মানসিক চাপান-উতর লেগেই থাকে। কোনও কাজ করিতে গেলে আসিয়া পরে দ্বন্দ । পূর্ববর্তী কর্ম্মের ভার আমাদিগকে টানিয়া চলিতে হয়ে। লৌহতপ্ত মরুভূমিতে শ্রান্ত পথিক যেমন মরুদ্যানের বিভিশিখায় দিকবিদিক্ বোধশূন্য হইয়া যায় তেমনই এ সংসার এর জীবের অবস্থা হয়।

এক্ষণে প্রশ্ন হইলো আমাদিগের এমন কেন হইয়া থাকে।

আমাদের মনের তিনটি স্তর বিদ্যমান। চেতন, অবচেতন এবং অতিচেতন। মনের সর্ব বাহির স্তর হইলো চেতন স্তর। এই চেতন স্তর ভেদ করিয়া ইন্দ্রিয় মাধ্যমে উদ্দীপনা মনের অবচেতন স্তরে এবং আরও গভীরে অতিচেতন স্তরে স্পর্শ করে। এই অতিচেতন স্তরের পরে একটি সুক্ষ্ম শূন্য স্থান থাকে এবং সেই শূন্য স্থান ভেদ করিয়া আত্মার দরবার।

জগৎ এর সম্প্রসারণ আর আত্মার সঙ্কোচনের মাঝে stagnant [*স্তর হল এটি। একইভাবে আত্মার সম্প্রসারণ আর জগতের সঙ্কোচনের মাঝে *]

এই শূন্যস্থান stagnant হয়। প্রথম অবস্থায় আত্মা হইতে জগতের সৃষ্টি এবং দ্বিতীয় ক্ষেত্রে আত্মায় জগতের লয় হয়।
h2<>{color:#4f81bd;}. এসবের মাঝে বাধ সাধে আমাদের বৃত্তি। কাঁচা উদ্দীপনা যখন ইন্দ্রিয় পথে প্রবেশ করে তখন সেই উদ্দীপনা গুলি চিনিয়া লইবার জন্যে আমাদের দেহে ৬ টি শক্তিকেন্দ্র তৈরি হয়েছে। যথা কাম, ক্রোধ, লোভ, মদ, মোহ, মাৎসর্য্য , আমরা কোনও বস্তু ভাল কি মন্দ , ঠিক কি বেঠিক বলিতে পারিনা এই বৃত্তির রঙ্গে রাঙ্গিয়ে। উদাহরণ – আমি রসগোল্লা খাইতে ভালোবাসি। একটি রসগোল্লা খাইলেও আমার ক্ষুন্নিবৃত্তি নিবৃত্ত হয় আবার দশটি খাইলেও একই ফল হয়। তথাপি আমি দশটি-ই খাইব। কেহ যেন ভিতর হইতে বলিয়া দেয় আরও খাইলে হইত। আসলে ভিতর হইতে বৃত্তি শক্তি সংগ্রহ করিয়া থাকে এই ইচ্ছাশক্তির বারংবার বিনিয়োগে। লোভ হইলো এই বৃত্তি। অবচেতন স্তরে এই বৃত্তিগুলির বাস। অন্ধকারময় এই স্তরের ভিতরে কত আজানা ইচ্ছা অবদমিত থাকে যা উপযুক্ত উদ্দীপনার সংস্পর্শে প্রকট হইয়া থাকে।

কার্যক্ষেত্রে রাগিয়া যাইবার স্বভাব আমাদের সবারই অল্প বিস্তর আছে। রাগিয়া যাইবার কারণ আমার পছন্দ মত বিষয় নিবৃত্ত হয় নাই। আমার পছন্দের পিছনে কার্য করে আমার ব্যাক্তিগত পছন্দ অপছন্দ। এই পছন্দ ও অপছন্দের পিছনে থাকে কাম। মুক্ত ব্যক্তির কামনার কেন্দ্র তার ইষ্ট। বদ্ধ ব্যক্তির ক্ষেত্রে তার নিজস্ব কামনা বাসনা। ফলে যখনি সেই বৃত্তি তে আঘাত পরে, ব্যক্তি রাগিয়া যায়।

নীল আকাশটা সকলেরই সাথী

কারও সাথেই চলতে তাকে হয় না

অসীম বিস্তার নিয়ে বিরাজিত সর্বত্র

কেউ বলে না সাথী তাকে পায় না ।

অনন্ত বিস্তার যার

কাউকে ছেড়ে কোথাও তো তার

যাওয়ার জায়গা নাই,

অচঞ্চল চির স্থির

সবাই তাকে চলার সাথী পাই ।

নিজেকে নিয়েই থাকি যখন

নিজেকে নিঃসঙ্গ মনে হয়

সঙ্গীর দিকে চোখ ফেরালেই

অনুভব আসে ——-

নিঃসঙ্গ কেউ কখনও নয় ।

তোমাকেও চলতে হয়না সাথে

রয়েছ তুমি সবার পাশে পাশে

সর্বব্যাপী নীল আকাশের

নীরব আশ্বাসে ।

বৃথাই তোমায় ডেকে ডেকে মরি

চোখ ফেরালেই তোমার দেখা পাই

অন্তহীন অপার অসীম তুমি

আমায় ছেড়ে চলে যাওয়ার

জায়গা তোমার নাই ।

তোমায় ছেড়ে কোথায় যাব আমি

আমায় ছেড়ে তুমি কোথায় যাবে

দু চোখ বুঁজে মনের চোখ মেললেই দর্শন ——-

এসে আমার বুকের মাঝে দাঁড়াবে ।

 

সূর্যের ক্রোধে পৃথিবী ত্রস্ত

মানুষের হাঁসফাঁস

অর্ক তখন নিভৃতে ছড়ায়

জীবনীয় আশ্বাস।

h1={color:#365f91;}.

দিন ফুরালে তবে চাঁদ ওঠে

এখন কোথায় পাবে

কিন্তু,    অর্কের দ্যুতি স্নিগ্ধ শীতল

সর্বদা অনুভবে।

h1={color:#365f91;}.

ছোটবেলাকার খেলার সঙ্গী

বই দেওয়ানেওয়া কত

তপোবনেতেও আগেপিছে পড়া

আনন্দ অবিরত।

h1={color:#365f91;}.

আজ সে মহান মহীরূহসম

শত দায়িত্ব তার

সবাইকে নিয়ে চলনায় পটু

সপ্রীত ব্যবহার।

h1={color:#365f91;}.

ঠাকুরের তুমি চতুর্থ পুরুষ

মহাশক্তির ধারা

আকর্ষণীয় ব্যক্তিত্বে

সংলাপ মধুভরা।

h1={color:#365f91;}.

শুধু আজ নয়, জীবনভরই

তুমি খুব ভাল থেকো

প্রণাম এবং ভালবাসা নিও

সবাইকে ভাল রেখো।

प्रश्न: तो कपटी भक्त कभी बनते हैं ? 

श्रीश्रीठाकुर: बोलने और करने के बीच का  दरवाज़ा यदि बंद हो जाता है, या फिर करने और सोचने के बीच का दरवाज़ा यदि बंद हो जाता है, यह बंद-दरवाज़ा ही आपको कपटी बना देता है । ¥¥ 

 

प्रश्न: फिर जो-लोग जो नहीं हैं लेकिन उसका अभिनय अच्छा कर सकते हैं, वे लोग तो भक्त बन सकते हैं ? 

श्रीश्रीठाकुर: हाँ, वह हो सकता है मतलब कैसे ! ― यदि यह बोलना, करना और सोचना एक तान में रहे । देखिए, बचपन में एकदिन सुना था, एक वैश्या माँ जयदेव की पत्नी बनती थी । ऐसे थिएटर करते करते एकदिन उसका कैसा हुआ, वह भगवान-भगवान बोलके पागल हो गयी । रंगमंच का थिएटर वहीं से छूट गया – दुनियां-मंच के प्रांगण में उसकी भक्ति ने उसको भक्ति के अभिनय में नियोजित किया।   जैसे समय बीतता गया वह भूल गयी, वह कैसे थी ; और उसका परिपार्श्विक जो-कुछ उसकी बातों से, प्राणमयी व्यथा से, कार्य से, सेवा से मुग्ध होकर उसके चरित्र के ओजस्विनी रस में उद्दीप्त होने लगा । वह जो वैश्या थी सबलोग यह जानते हुए भी उसके प्रति और वैसा भाव ला ही नहीं पाये । उसके इष्ट हाथ पकड़कर दुनिया के परम-स्वर्गीय भोग के अंदर घूमने लगे । नरक बुझ गया, स्वर्ग मंद-मंद मुस्कुराकर उसको आलिंगन कर के उसके सौरभ से दिग-दिगन्त उद्भासित करने लगा । ऐसा क्यों हुआ, समझे ? बोलने और करने के बीच चलते-चलते यह भाव का दरवाज़ा खुल गया था । इसीलिए वह और पहले जैसी नहीं रही । 

 

प्रश्न: ऐसे अभिनय करते-करते लोगों से पूजा पा कर, उसका मन पूजा पाने की दिशा में आकृष्ट हो कर असली पगडंडी खो दे, ऐसा हो सकता है क्या ? 

श्रीश्रीठाकुर: हट पागल, पागल बेवकूफ है क्या ! सातकांड रामायण पढ़ने के बाद बोलता है सीता राम की बुआ हैं ! जो प्यार करता है, वह क्या कभी सोचता है कि वह भक्त है ?¥ वह प्यार की बातें ही बोलता है, प्यार करने से जैसा करना होता है वैसा ही करता है, और वैसे भाव में भावित होता है ।* लोग कहते हैं, वह भक्त है । लोग जो कहेंगे वह यदि खुदको वही बोल दिया या सोच लिया, फिर जिसके लिये लोग उसे भक्त कहते थे उसका अपलाप होगा ही ― उसके वैसे बोलने और करने में मेल रहेगा नहीं । दिखावे के लिये कुछ करने को जाते जाते बहुत गड़बड़ी कर देगा । कारण, वह तो मन में सोच रहा है, लोग उसको कैसे भक्त बोलेंगे, वही करने में जुटा है । बोलने, करने और सोचने के अंदर का दरवाज़ा अपने आप ही बंद हो जाता है । और यह बंद-दरवाज़ा देख लोग फट से सोचेंगे और बोल देंगे ― कपट । तो फिर देखिए, कितना फर्क हो गया । इसीलिए, उसके भाग्य में पूजा के बदले तिरस्कार मिलना स्वाभाविक है ।

प्रश्न-हिन्दू और मुसलमान के बीच सारे भारतवर्ष में दंगा होता आ रहा है, उसकी मीमांसा या समाधान कैसे होगा ? इन दो के बीच सामंजस्य कैसे हो सकता है, यह पता नही चलता है ! काफिरों को बचने एवं बढ़ने देना भी अधर्म ही है- इस भेद का सामंजस्य कहाँ है ?

श्री श्री ठाकुर-भेद क्या है रे पगले ? जो बचना चाहते हैं, वृद्धि पाना चाहते हैं, उनमे भेद कैसे रह सकता है ? जहाँ हमबड़ाई है वहाँ केवल भेद है ! यदि भेद ही हमारा वैशिष्ट्य होता तो ईसाइयों ही को क्यों मानते-शास्त्र में ऐसा संकेत क्यों रहेगा ?

जो बचना चाहते हैं, वृद्धि पाना चाहते हैं, वे किसी न किसी रूप में धर्म को मानते ही हैं | क्योंकि धर्म के आदि उपादान ही हैं- बचना और बढ़ना | बचने तथा बढ़ने के लिये ऐसे व्यक्ति को पकड़ना चहिये जिससे इस दुनिया के पंचभूतों के पचास तरह के दंशन एवं पांच सौ तरह के अयथा ठोकरों की अवहेलना कर उन्हें इस प्रकार काबू में रख कर चला जाये जिससे वे क्षति नही पहुँचा सकें | पर हमारा यह आचरण उनके मुताबिक़ होना चाहिए जिन्हें पकड़कर हमारी अस्ति वृद्धि सगौरव परीपोषण से पुष्ट हो अच्छी तरह कायदे के अनुसार चल सके | इससे इसी निष्कर्ष में पहुचते हैं-जिन्हें हमने पकड़ा है उनके निर्देशित पथ पर खूब आनंद से बाजे-गाजे सहित याजन में तल्लीन हो हमें चलना है |

उसका अर्थ है-जिनको पकड़ कर हमारा ऐसा जीवन आरम्भ होता है उनके निर्देशित पथ के जरिये एक बहुत बड़ा स्तम्भ देखने को मिलता है, और वह है खुदा | पर इस धर्म तथा अस्ति-वृद्ध के उपकरण में आवश्यक है-वह खुदा, वह रसूल, वह कुरआन एवं उनके महान, उद्दीप्त, अमृतसिक्त जीवन पथ पर चलने लायक विवेकमयी चिराग | उस खुदा को जो नही मानता है एवं न उन्हें न उनके निर्देशों को मानता है वही व्यक्ति मृत्यु पथ का यात्री है और

वही है काफिर |
इन काफिरों के साथ आर्यद्विज, मुसलमान, ईसाई या बौद्ध जो भी क्यों न हों, उनमे बहुत फर्क रहता है: किन्तु शरीर और जीवन में कोइ फर्क नही होता है, बल्कि फर्क होता है चलने के कायदे में | इसलिए भगवान यीशु ने कहा,“पापी से घृणा मत करो, पाप से घृणा करो |” कुरआन में भी हज़रात ने खूब जोर देकर घोषणा की है“यह निश्चित जान लो, जो ईश्वर और उनके और उनके प्रेरितों(रसूल) के साथ विद्रोही की तरह आचरण करे एवं जान बूझ कर जो ईश्वर एवं उनके प्रेरितों (रसूल) में विभेद पैदा करते हैं एवं कहते हैं की हम किसी पर विश्वास करते हैं एवं किसी के विद्रोही बनते हैं एवं मर्ज़ी से इनमे कोई

पथ अवलंबन करते हैं-ऐसे व्यक्ति ही प्रकृत काफिर होते हैं |तो यह देखा जाता है कि धर्म की दिशा में जिन्होंने आचरण के जरिये धर्म को अनुभव किया है उनकी निगाहों में कोई फर्क नही है, दरअसल कोई फर्क है भी नही | उनके अनुसार बचने-बढ़ने के लिये जितना लवाजमा की ज़रूरत है उसमे कोइ फर्क नही होता है | हिन्दू मुसलमान तो दूर की बात है, मनुष्य-मनुष्य में जो फर्क है उसका एकमात्र समाधान धर्म ही है | धर्म में कहीं दलबंदी, भेद विरोध नही रह सकता है | हिन्दुलोग कहते हैं, पूर्वगुरु या धर्म-प्रवर्तक को अवलंबन कर ही परवर्ती का आविर्भाव होता है; और ये परवर्ती-पूर्ववर्ती के ही परिणतिमात्र होते हैं | भगवान् हज़रात रसूल भी अपने मुखनिःसृत कुरआन में ऐसी बात कह गये हैं |

जब बाढ़ में सारा देश डूब जाता है, घर द्वार में रहना असंभव हो जाता है तो जंगल में जीव,

दुःख था- क्या करूँ,? एक तरफ पुत्रवियोग है दूसरी ओर अपने जीवन से पछतावा । श्री श्री ठाकुर उसी रात उनके पीछे चल रहे थे और उनके मन की बात को जान चुके थे। जहाँ पदमा के पास जंगल आता है वहाँ किशोरी दा फिसलकर गिर पड़े, तब समझ में नहीं आया क्या करें ?  अपनी जीवन रक्षा के लिए ठाकुर जी का नाम लेकर  चीत्कार किया। और ठाकुर जी उनका हाथ पकड़ कर घर की तरफ लेते चले गये | वहाँ उनको उपयुक्त साधन भजन सिखा कर जीवन को सार्थक कर दिया।

ऐसे ही उनके परम भक्त थे अनंतनाथ जो कि उनके बाल सखा भी थे। पत्नी वियोग के बाद बालक की मृत्यु उपरान्त सब कुछ से मन हटाकर भगवान को पाने के लिए तप उपवास शुरु कर दिया और जब अंत में उन्होंने गले में फाँसी लगा ली और तब ही श्री श्री ठाकुर ने आकर उनको नव जीवन दिया ।

दोनों कथाओं का सार यह बताता है कि ठाकुर जी मन की हर बात को समझ जाते हैं और तदनुसार उसका उपाय करते है। इसके लिए ठाकुर जी से युक्त होना परम आवश्यक है। हर मनुष्य अपने जीवन से दुखी होकर भगवान को पाने की आशा में इधर उधर भटकता है और अंत में कोई उपाय न पाकर गलत भावना से ऐसा कदम उठा लेता है जो उसके जीवन को खत्म कर देता है।

आज इस युग में लाखो लोग इसी ग्रंथि से ग्रसित हैं। यह एक गाँठ जैसा है एवं इसका बढ़ना उत्कृष्ट जीवन की ओर वृद्धि को रोक रहा है । जो मनुष्य अपने जीवन से परिवार और समाज को नई दिशा दे सकता था, वह उससे मुख मोड़कर मृत्यु की और चला जाता है। श्री श्री ठाकुर उसी ग्रन्थि को दूर करने के लिए नाम दिए हैं और याजन दिए हैं । इन दोनों से युक्त होकर हम अपने जीवन में आत्म विश्लेषण और आत्म मुखी हो सकते हैं। कौन किस को लेकर जीवन में आगे बढ़ता है,  यह सबसे बड़ी बात है। एक पेड़ का  आगे और ऊपर के तरफ बढ़ने में सबसे बड़ा  हाथ सूर्य का है और उसके साथ लगने वाले गुरुत्व बल का भी है । गुरुत्व बल न होने से पौधे के बढ़ने और विकास में असर होता है। ठाकुर जी अपने दो जीवन सखा से आग्रह किये की आप नाम लो। दीक्षा लो। न कोई दर्शन बतलाये न तर्क किये । पर प्रेम से उनसे उनके जीवन का मंगल हो यह कामना किये। ठाकुर जी के दर्शन के पीछे का सार है मनुष्य । मनुष्य को बचाने और बढाने के लिए ठाकुर जी इस युग में आये हैं ।

तरफ राजकीय और फिर अत्यंत साधारण । रहस्यमय मनुष्य हैं वे, उनके संबंध में अनेक अद्भुत कहानियां हैं । किंतु सब से विस्मयकर है उनका असीम प्यार । उनके माध्यम से दुनियां में ऐसा अकृत्रिम प्यार उतर आया है । लोग कहते हैं वे ‘प्रोफेट’ हैं । उनको मनुष्य के हिसाब से जाना है, और उनके जैसा मनुष्य मैने और कभी नहीं देखा । उन्होंने मेरा इतना ध्यान रखा है, इतना स्नेह दृष्टि वर्षण किया हैं कि मेरे पिताजी से भी इतनी आशा नहीं कर सकता ।

ବୀଜ କଥାର ମାନେ ହିଁ ହେଲା

     ଯାହା ଦୁଇଦିଗରେ ଗଜେଇ ଉଠେ― 

           ଭିତରେ―ବାହାରେ;

ବୀଜମନ୍ତ୍ର ଜପି ସତ୍ତା-ତରଙ୍ଗ

     ଏପରି ଉଖୁରା ପାଏ

           ଯାହା ଫଳରେ, ବୈଧାନିକ ପରିଣୟନରେ

                ଅନେକ ଜିନିଷର ଅନୁଭୂତି

    ପ୍ରଶ୍ନ । ଆଛା, ହଜ଼ରତ ମହମ୍ମଦ ଯେପରି ମହାକର୍ମୀ ଥିଲେ, ସେପରିହିଁ ସରଳସ୍ୱଭାବ ଥିଲେ । ଟିକେ ପାଣି ଆଉ କେତୋଟି ଖଜୁରୀ ମାତ୍ର ଥିଲା ତାଙ୍କର ଦୈନନ୍ଦିନ ସାଧାରଣ ଖାଦ୍ୟ । ଖଲିଫାଗଣବି ଅନେକେ ଥିଲେ ନିରାମିଷାଶୀ ସେମାନଙ୍କରବି ଖାଦ୍ୟ ଥିଲା ଋଷିମାନଙ୍କ ଭଳି― ରୁଟି ଆଉ ଖଜୁରୀ । ସେମାନଙ୍କ ଜୀବନର ଆଦର୍ଶ ତ ଆମମାନଙ୍କର ଅନୁସରଣୀୟ ? ତେବେ ଆମମାନଙ୍କର ସମାଜରେ ପଶୁବଳି ଆଉ ମାଛ-ମାଂସ ଖାଇବା ବିଧି ହେଲା କିପରି ? 

     ଶ୍ରୀଶ୍ରୀଠାକୁର ― ସହଜ, ସରଳ ଓ ଅକ୍ଲାନ୍ତ କର୍ମୀ ହୋଇ ରହିବାଟାକୁ ପସନ୍ଦ କରନ୍ତି ଯେଉଁମାନେ, ସେମାନଙ୍କର ପ୍ରକୃତି ଓ ପ୍ରବୃତ୍ତିହିଁ ଚାହେଁ ସେଇପ୍ରକାର ନିରାମିଷାହାର । ଏଇଟା କ୍ଷୁଧାରହିଁ ନିୟମ ― ତେଣୁ ଏହାହିଁ ପ୍ରକୃତି । ହଜ଼ରତ ରସୁଲ କ’ଣ କୋଉଠିବି କହି ଯାଇଛନ୍ତି, ତୁମେମାନେ ଖୋଦାଙ୍କ ନାମରେ ପ୍ରାଣବାନ୍ ― ଯେଉଁମାନଙ୍କର ସୁଖ-ଦୁଃଖ, ଅନୁକୂଳ-ପ୍ରତିକୂଳ, ଉଚିତ-ଅନୁଚିତ ବୋଧ ଓ ପ୍ରୟୋଜନ ଭଳି ଚଳନାର ବିବେକ ଅଛି, ମୃତ୍ୟୁକୁ ଯେଉଁମାନେ ଭୟ କରି ଶିହରି ଉଠନ୍ତି, ଏହା ଆମମାନଙ୍କ ଭଳି ହାଡ଼-ରକ୍ତ-ମାଂସବାଲା-ପ୍ରାଣୀମାନଙ୍କୁ ହତ୍ୟା କରି ଖାଇ ଦିଅ ― ତୁମମାନଙ୍କର ଧର୍ମ ଖୁବ୍ ଅତୁଟ ହୋଇ ଥାଉ ? 

     ସିଏ କାହାରିବି ବେଦନା ସହି ପାରୁନଥିଲେ ― ଦୁଃଖବେଦନାବିଦ୍ଧ ଦେଖିଲେହିଁ ସିଏ ଆକୁଳ ହୋଇଉଠୁଥିଲେ ସେକ୍ଷଣିହିଁ, ତା’ ନିରାକରଣ ପାଇଁ ― ନିରାକରଣ ନ କରି ଯେପରି ନିରସ୍ତ ହିଁ ହୋଇ ପାରୁନଥିଲେ ! ଅନ୍ୟର ବେଦନା ଅନୁଭବ କରୁଥିଲେ ତାଙ୍କର ନିଜର ବୋଲି ― ଏହା ତ ଥିଲା ତାଙ୍କର ଚରିତ୍ରରେ ଜାଜ୍ୱଲ୍ୟମାନ ହୋଇ ଫୁଟି ଉଠୁଥିଲା । 

     ‘କୁର୍ବାନୀ’ କଥାର ମାନେ ହତ୍ୟା ― ଏହା ମୋର କୌଣସିମତେହିଁ ମନେ ହୁଏନା; ମନେହୁଏ ନିବେଦନ, ମନେହୁଏ ଉତ୍ସର୍ଗ― ଆଉ ତା’ ସବୁଠାରୁ ଯିଏ ମୋର ପ୍ରିୟ, ଦୁନିଆରେ ଯାହାଙ୍କୁ ଅତ୍ୟନ୍ତଭାବେହିଁ ପସନ୍ଦ କରେ, ଭଲପାଏ― ତାଙ୍କୁ ନିବେଦନ କରିବାକୁ ଇଚ୍ଛା ହୁଏ― ଆଉ କରିବି ହୁଏ ମହସୁଖ, ମହାତୃପ୍ତି ― ଅନ୍ତଃକରଣ ଫୁଟିଉଠେ ଯେପରି ମହାସନ୍ଦୀପନାରେ । ନିବେଦନ କରି କାହିଁକି ତାଙ୍କୁ ଦେବାକୁ ଇଚ୍ଛା କରୁଛି― ଏହି ଚିନ୍ତାରେହିଁ ଯେପରି ଅନ୍ତଃକରଣଟା ଏହିଭଳି ହୋଇଉଠେ ! ମନେହୁଏ, ― ନିବେଦନ କରି, ତାଙ୍କୁ ଦେଇ ମୁଁ ଯେପରି ଆହୁରି ପ୍ରାଣବାନ୍ ହୋଇଉଠିଲି, ଯା’କୁ ଦେଲି ସିଏବି ଯେପରି ପରଶ ପାଇ― ପରଶ ପାଇ କାହିଁକି, ନିବେଦନର ଉଦ୍ଦେଶ୍ୟାନୁପ୍ରାଣନରେ ― ପ୍ରାଣବାନ୍, ଚେତନ, ସାଡ଼ାଶୀଳ ହୋଇଉଠିଲେ ! ବଧ ବା ହତ୍ୟାର ଚିନ୍ତାହିଁ ତ ଏଠାରେ ନାହିଁ― ବିଶେଷତଃ ଯେଉଁଠାରେ Islam is the attitude of Dharma ।

He is Sri Sri Thakur Anukulchandra, a man who is at a time, gorgeously simple, wisely foolish and abnormally normal.For HIS potent and effective ways to usher in an all round heavenly transformation in lives, HE was reverently called as "Thakur" by HIS followers which means a spiritual guide or teacher.
