গুরু কে ?

গুরু এক, কিন্তু উপগুরু অনেক হতে পারে। যার কাছে কিছু শিক্ষা পাওয়া যায়, তাকেই উপগুরু বলা যেতে পারে। ভগবতে আছে, অবধূত এইরূপ ২৪ টি উপগুরু করেছিল।

একদিন মাঠের ওপর দিয়ে যেতে যেতে অবধূত সামনে ঢাক ঢোল বাজাতে বাজাতে খুব জাঁকজমক করে একটি বর আসছে, আর এক দিকে এক ব্যাধ একমনে আপন লক্ষ্যের দিকে চেয়ে আছে, এত জাঁক করে যে বর আসছে, সেদিকে একবারও চেয়ে দেখছেনা। অবধূত সেই ব্যাধ কে প্রনাম করে বললে, “তুমি আমার গুরু। যখন আমি ভগবানের ধ্যানে বসব তখন যেন তাঁর প্রতি অরুপ লক্ষ্য থাকে”।

Swami vivekananda's letter to Alasinga perumal(disciple of swamiji)

DEAR ALASINGA

We have no organisation, nor want to build any. Each one is quite independent to teach, quite free to preach whatever he or she likes.

If you have the spirit within, you will never fail to attract others. Theosophists' method can never be ours, for the very simple reason that they are an organised sect, we are not.

Individuality is my motto. I have no ambition beyond training individuals up. I know very little; that little I teach without reserve; where I am ignorant, I confess it as such, and never am I so glad as when I find people being helped by Theosophists, Christians, Mohammedans, or anybody in the world. I am a Sannyasin; as such I consider myself as a servant, not as a master in the world. . . . If people love me, they are welcome, if they hate, they are also welcome.

Each one will have to save himself, each one to do his own work. I seek no help, I reject none. Nor have I any right in the world to be helped. Whosoever has helped me or will help, it will be their mercy to me, not my right, and as such I am eternally grateful.

When I became a Sannyasin, I consciously took the step, knowing that this body would have to die of starvation. What of that, I am a beggar. My friends are poor, I love the poor, I welcome poverty. I am glad that I sometimes have to starve. I ask help of none. What is the use? Truth will preach itself, it will not die for the want of the helping hands of me! "Making happiness and misery the same, making success and failure the same, fight thou on" (Gita). It is that eternal love, unruffled equanimity under all circumstances, and perfect freedom from jealousy or animosity that will tell. That will tell, nothing else.

Yours,

VIVEKANANDA.

"One must have reverence for one's Guru. One's chance of salvation lies in one's reverence for him. Observe how the disciples of the Master revere him. Out of this reverence for him they revere not only all the members of his family, but even the cats from his home-district!"

Freedom can never be true of name and form; it is the clay out of which we (the pots) are made; then it is limited and not free, so that freedom can never be true of the related. One pot can never say "I am free" as a pot; only as it loses all ideas of form does it become free. The whole universe is only the Self with variations, the one tune made bearable by variation; sometimes there are discords, but they only make the subsequent harmony more perfect. In the universal melody three ideas stand out — freedom, strength, and sameness.
If your freedom hurts others, you are not free there. You must not hurt others.

Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea.
Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea,
and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.

APPEAL TO ALL MY BRETHREN, CHILDREN OF LIGHT

Dear devotees,

It is high time we realize that Swamiji's dream of rebuilding India is getting heavily impeded due to lack of man-power and funds. It is therefore meet that we give up our passive piety and make our faith dynamic and socially productive. We must raise adequate funds for the many projects that are languishing for want of it by contributing our UTMOST and by galvanizing support for the Cause. It is blasphemous to call ourselves devotees if in Thakur's name we cater to our self-interest first and think of giving a pittance for the Cause thereafter and thereby feel selfishly secure about our dedication to the Master's Mission. Just contemplate these statements of Sri Ramakrishna :

1. AND TALKING OF CHARITY, WHAT DO YOU DO AFTER ALL ? FOR YOUR OWN DAUGHTER'S MARRIAGE, YOU SPEND SO MUCH. BUT THE NEIGHBOUR'S DAUGHTER IS STARVING AND FOR HER YOU SEND RICE AND THAT TOO, IN EXACT MEASURED AMOUNT ! SO MUCH FOR YOUR CHARITY.

2. HERE ( DAKSHINESWAR ) PEOPLE COME FOR THEY KNOW THAT THEY DON'T HAVE TO GIVE ANYTHING.

3. WHO WOULD CALL UPON GOD HAD HE NOT BEEN RICH ?

Therefore, let us shed this stance of ours of not having enough for the Cause which is completely contrary to the tradition of charity in India and let us devote heart and soul for quick fulfilment of the various projects of the Mission that need immediate financial help.

MOTTO : MISSION FIRST, MYSELF LAST.

P.S. : It is unfortunately a selfish notion in some that The Mission's work never stops or slows down for want of funds. They who entertain such ideas are peripheral beings with no knowledge of the actual state of things. We who call ourselves devotees, more so, initiated devotees of the Order must practice total detachment towards our earthly possessions in the name of the Master who gave us the grand formulation : TAKA MATI, MATI TAKA ( MONEY IS MUD, MUD MONEY ). We must understand that we cannot keep the millions in physical distress by ourselves enjoying the possessions of life.

May Thakur bless them who truly love His children !

Nivedita

NIVEDITA of RAMAKRISHNA-VIVEKANANDA

If Netaji is the forgotten hero of India, then Sister Nivedita is her forgotten heroine. This Irish lady was one of the outstanding geniuses of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. We owe our little understanding of Swami Vivekananda's complex personality largely to her. ' The Master as I saw him ' written by her is a classic study of the Swami.

The support she gave to Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose in preparing his manuscripts on Plant Responses to Stimuli needs public recognition. Rabindranath Tagore was so impressed by her that he called her Lokmata and compared her to Sati. Aurobindo Ghosh and other revolutionaries found in her an anchor during their troubled days of political activity. She inspired the freedom fighters through her fiery lectures throughout the length and breadth of India.

Yet, through all this, she never forgot for a moment the commandment of her great Guru Swami Vivekananda who charged her with the task of educating the women of India. Her tireless services to this cause gained fruition in the form of the ' Nivedita School ' in Bagbazar where from humble beginnings she built up the nucleus of the future educated womanhood of India, a task which consumed her life and eventually claimed it prematurely. But the lamp she had lit continued to burn and eventually found fulfilment in the founding of the Sri Sarada Math and the Ramakrishna Sarada Mission whose humble beginnings may be traced to the ' Nivedita School '.

Yet, Sister Nivedita remains a largely forgotten character for an inordinately long time now owing to the ingratitude ingrained in us on account of the massive mediocrity that masquerades as protagonists of the Indian culture. Time it is to wake up to these messiahs amongst men, Netaji, Nivedita and the like but for whom we would not have been the free birds that we are, however decadent be the gains of such a partitioned freedom ever engaged in fratricidal warfare or in factious political engagements. Jai Hind !

APPEAL IN THE NAME OF RAMAKRISHNA-VIVEKANANDA :

This universe is a layered structure. So is any monastic order. The difference lies in the reference point alone, the terminus being the same for both. In the universal case one starts from the grossest layer of dense matter where tamas prevails whereas in the case of a monastic order the reference point is in a far more subtle region of rajas and sattwa. The Order of the Master in a like manner is layered from the outermost fringes of the fumbling novice to the sanctum sanctorum where the Master is seated in His perennial grandeur, eternal resplendence. There the Order is one with Him with the Apostles in direct communion with their Lord. From the alpha to the omega of the Order is one constant progression of closer and closer identification with the Master till identity is realized. Swami Vivekananda had famously given utterance to the fact that the Order is the Master's vast body. So true it is for the Master represented the gamut of human spiritual aspirations and the Order is potentially the sum total of such aspirations. Right now it is the nucleus of the spiritual consciousness of the world and the disciples of Vivekananda testify that the Swami had said that it is to remain so for 1500 years since the advent of the Master ( Ramakrishna ). Miss Josephine MacLeod had said 900 years though. Be that as it may, the fact remains that the Order of the Master will continue to play a pivotal role in shaping the spiritual consciousness of the world for a long long time to come.

This prophecy of Vivekananda must and will fulfil but it ought not to allow any to lapse into a false sense of security and its concomitant evil, a lack of spiritual commitment or missionary zeal. Things do not fulfil of themselves. They have to be fulfilled by hard labour, a labour of love, a love that wells up from the spiritual springs embedded in the heart of the devotee where the sovereign Lord dwells. It is the gravest injustice to the Master's Cause to lapse into spiritual passivity as this is completely in contradistinction to what the great Swami Vivekananda preached and practised throughout his life and what in consequence leonine monks like Ketaki Maharaj ( Swami Prabhananda Senior ), Swami Kalyanananda, Swami Nishchayananda and a galaxy of other illumined monks of the Order have followed and lived with their lives' blood. Atamano mokshartham jagaddhitayacha ( for the liberation of the Self and world-welfare )---this is the motto of the Ramakrishna Order as enunciated by Swami Vivekananda. In other words, for the perception of the eternally liberated state of the Self and for the spiritual regeneration of humankind the monks and lay devotees of the Order are enjoined to live their lives. But the catholic spirit of the Mission embraces all of humanity and it therefore is a spiritual imperative of the Order to look after the material well-being of the poor and the downtrodden teeming millions who barely suffer the terrestrial existence the privileged few enjoy as life. It will not do to philosophize their misery off for they are our very selves, our flesh and blood, our sisters and brothers, our objects of adoration, the very God we worship, the Master and the Mother incarnate. If any of us chooses to neglect them, to abandon them in their devastated physical states, then he makes the gravest error for he knows not that all around is the Master in His myriad guises seeking our service in His terrestrial play. To refuse help to these suffering millions while piling up millions in our coffers for our ''own ones'' is not only inhuman but is anti-human and augurs not well for the offending soul. For what you sow returns to you as the fruit of your action. The law of Karma is inviolable and it is therefore meet that one acts in accordance with humanistic impulses and not selfish propensities. The masses have suffered for ages and continue to suffer so not because Thakur wills it so but because we the privileged few choose in our conceited ' omniscience ' to devise false philosophy to convince our rotting conscience against adopting effective measures to stem the rot in human society whose worst symptom is the abject poverty of the multitude.

Time it is therefore that we stop quoting Ramakrishna-Vivekananda and the lot to suit our nefarious selfishness and read correctly into the meaning and significance of their lives. That Thakur's work never stops for money is the slogan of devotee dear. I wish that such devoted ones peruse through the life of Swamiji and his brothers in the Baranagar Math days and thereafter, Holy Mother's plight in getting two square meals a day and the Almora fainting of Swamiji from starvation for days when a Muslim fakir saved his life by feeding him a ' kankri '. All through Swamiji's life he was frustrated at the lack of charitable spirit both in the West as well as in his homeland India till he burst out saying, " So long as the millions live in hunger and ignorance I hold every man a traitor who having been educated at their expense pays not the least heed to them." This was Vivekananda, a dynamic monk, a prophet, a patriot, a citizen of the world, nay, the entire universe, the flute in the hands of Ramakrishna with which He played His vesper song, the symphony of the Soul. Never for once did the Swami make such abject excuses for his inability to alleviate the misery of the masses as the Will of the Master. Rather his leonine heart bled with the bleeding hearts of the millions in sympathy with them, nay, out of love for these divinities who had none to look forward to for help, whom even it seemed that God had forsaken. Swamiji lived and died for them and we wish to live lives of ease and comfort by stealing the very basis of subsistence from our brothers ? Reflect dear devotees, these are our very selves who we let suffer, our own ones who we let die, our sisters and brothers !

Swami Vivekananda, the worshipper of Virat 'dedicated' her to the woship of human soul, 'dedicated' her to INDIA to uplift Shakti through the exemplary example set by THE HOLY MOTHER, 'dedicated' her to humanity to set example to 'MANAVASEVA MADHAVASEVA', taught by Sri Ramakrishna, and she proved herself to be worthy of the task, sacrificing herself and died for it! Oh, Swamiji's beloved spiritual daughter, 'Margot', you are the best exaple of discipleship! Salutations to this LIONESS...
