When society reaches a critical juncture or transition, the need of a great soul is felt. one who with unlimited power, immense vigour and extraordinary personality can revive the society’s momentum. In the past ,these great souls have changed the entire social outlook and re-established cardinal human values. When , due to the mountainous obstacles, human beings cannot themselves bring about such revolutionary changes, then with boundless grace, the divine Entity takes the form of a human being and is known as Tarak Brahma. Mahasambhuti.
Naturally , when He appears He is not concerned with establishing His own name fame, nor does he distract His disciples with flashy displays and miracles. His primary mission is to re-establish Dharma (inner nature ,spirituality, righteousness) and exterminate Papa (immorality). He makes the path of spiritual liberation easy for the sincere seekers, but He does not turn a deaf ear to the mad clamor of mechanical civilization: rather He provides a very cool and soothing nectar for the humanity, suffering under the three afflictions (i.e. physical, mental and spiritual afflictions). He gives a new way of life for the creation of a healthy society and a comprehensive ideology based on Dharma, spirituality. This new way of life opens up new vistas in all fields of human endeavour: education, culture, spirituality, politics, sociology, economics and so on. He brings about a total and profound revolution in all spheres of human life.
In human history, the respected personalities have been those who either achieved an exceptional spiritual radiance or who sacrificed their all for the welfare of the society. But the greatest and most respected personalities have been those who combined both of these acts. Shrii Shrii Anandamurtiji was just such a personality. In him we found the unprecedented blending of two personalities: the self-disciplined spiritualist and the warrior never afraid to take up a fight against Papa ( wickedness). He harmonized the internal and external aspects of life, making them inseparable. He taught his disciples to act with a subjective approach through objective adjustment (i.e. the endeavour to realize God while maintaining adjustment with the material world). He was the connecting bridge between theory and practice, between the mundane and the supra- mundane. Shrii Shrii Anandamurtijii travelled all over the world with the determination to establish a new society based on Neo – humanism. The books of Shrii Shrii Annadamurtijii reveal an unfathomable depth of learning, a brilliant radiance of scholarship and a profound elevating wisdom. Qualities such as these are unique.
Dharma Guru (preceptor) Shrii Shrii Anandamurtijii never declared himself as Bhagavan (God). He disliked self publicity. Instead he unfolded his personality through Ananda Marga’s all- embracing philosophy and through his organisation. Ananda Marga pracaraka Samgha, with missionary workers and followers world -wide. These things are there for all the world to see, but he kept himself ‘durat sudure’ ( far , far away) . Anandamurtijii, the propounder of Ananda Marga, was also known to us and addressed by us as Baba. Baba means the one who is most dear, most near. We in Ananda Marga have not got anybody else as dear and as close as He . That is why we call Baba.
