CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN SRI GAUTAM DHARMAPAL AND A FOLLOWER OF SRI ANIRVAN

CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN SRI GAUTAM DHARMAPAL AND A FOLLOWER OF SRI ANIRVAN
POSTED HERE ACCORDING TO SRI GAUTAM DHARMAPAL'S WISH

Dear X,
Very glad to receive your “na janami”_ i don’t know _letter Dt. 20th June. You are completely right. It is extremely difficult to know, if there is any concrete God! Of course there is nothing concrete in this world_all are moving atoms, you can call them Linguistic Atoms or spiritual atoms _always moving and changing forms _forms are never permanent _they live for a few moments, or for many many years _but one day they break and dissolve in the sea or sky of Atoms! That is God! Call Him Shiva or Vishnu or their so-called avataras _incarnations Krishna, Buddha or Christ!
But I can give you a concrete god whom you can worship and find the God within you and in the world. That is the Sun whom you see everyday rising and setting before your own eyes! Without Him nothing on Earth can live or exist _ of course the atoms of which we and all this earth is made of will continue to live because they are in Him and He is in them!
From Vedic times people in India have been worshipping the Sun-god as Savita, Surya, Indra or Vishnu! But no worship is fruitful without Faith and understanding. S’raddhaya Upanishada S’raddha-Faith is the first and most important step in any Sadhana. It is said “adau s’raddha tatah prajna”. In the beginning there should be S’raddha, and it will end in Prajna _Knowledge.
About knowing and Not-knowing you should read the second chapter of Kenopanishad. Om! May we know and meditate upon that maker of Day _ Producer of Light! May that Surya-the Sun impel us!
Surya_the Sun is directly connected with each self through His rays. That ray lies hidden in our hearts. Meditate upon that inner ray the Self-Atma_hidden in the cave of the heart. This one Sadhana is enough. You don’t have to go anywhere in the world to find God _ He is there hidden in your heart. Meditate upon Him sitting in a quiet place and realize Him! See Bhagavad Gita Ch. 18/61-62.Only these two s’lokas are enough. But the sharanam _ taking of Refuge in Him must be total _ full of Faith, S’raddha _ and Surrender.
This is all I have to say against your, “I do not know”_ the rest are worldly formalities.
After all this world is His and therefore our Play and His maya _daivi maya or Vishnu Maya – Illusion or Mystery_ Take it as you like! Of course, you will take it as your nature forces you to take! After all svabhava-stu pravartate! One acts according to one’s nature!
Hope you are reading Gouri’s book slowly but carefully. I am personally much more interested in her book “Puro Natun Veder Kobita”. Have you got it?
Yes both of us are happy that the book could be published! Thank God!
Have you got Anirvan’s Bangla Kenopanishad with you? Just now I am seeing the proofs of my English translation of Swamiji’s Bangla Keno-Upanishad.
For prayer and meditation there is the most famous Gayatri Mantra of Visvamitra which brahmanas in India repeat everyday like parrots! You know it perhaps, so I need not write.
Recently Sri Aurobindo has given us another Gayatri Mantra.
Om! Tat savitur varam rupam,
Jyotih parasya dhimahi
Yan-nah satyena dipayet._
Om! We meditate upon that wonderful form
Of Savita, That is the Light of the Supreme.
May He enlighten us with Truth.
I have received two Gayatri Mantras at Jagannath Puri in January 1988.
1, Om! Jagannathaya Vidmahe,
Vis’varupaya dhimahi
Tan-nah Vishnuh pracodayat!
May we know and meditate upon Jagannath_ the Lord of The Universe who has taken up the universal form! May that Vishnu impel us!
2, Om! Divakaraya Vidmahe
Atma-rupaya dhimahi
Tan-nah Surya pracodayat!
Om! May we know and Meditate upon Divakara_ the Sun, who has taken the form of Self! May that Surya_the Sun impel us!
Both of us are carrying on with our brittle health. After all, I am 86 and Gouri is almost 80!
One friend has promised to pay the expenses for the publication of all the Upanishads of Sri Anirvan published by the Burdwan University_ translated by me in English from 2004 to 2010! I hope, I will be able to see them published!
Gouri-ma has many things in her basket! Let us see how many fruits come out of it! She is continuing with her monthly Pathshala on Veda-mantras!
With all love and best wishes from both of us_
Gautamda
Vande Mataram.

My dearest Gautamji!
Let's see if you will receive this email from Y! that's where i happen to be these days.
I came 2 weeks ago and leave for Z again in 3 weeks.
My father and sister wanted to see me. So, i came...
Life has become ... or rather my mind has hard time to find something to give her 'energy' from what's happening around her...
I realize that one needs a 'dream' to keep him/her going in this life...
Somehow 'i' 'decided' to see/experience how life is without a 'dream'... i.e. without 'dreaming'... ( a prerequisite for 'waking up' perhaps... )
we shall see how the experiment will go and where it will take me...
Let's see if you'll receive these words...
X--
May you live in peace!
May all beings live in harmony!
May we all live in peace and in harmony!

Dear X,
Received your e-mail at my e-mail address. Did you received my long letter in reply to your 'i don't know' letter sent through Rajesh's e-mail address? Can we publish it at anirvan akash sight?
You are right. One should rather must have some higher aspiration other than the worldly ones to survive the attacks of this world. It may be for god or any ideal like social survice or an aspiration to go beyond all sorrow. God or no god does not matter yourself, atma, is there beyond or behind your ego. Find out if one can rise above ego, all the problems will be solved.
Hope this finds you well.With love and all the best wishes,

Hello dear Gautamji and 'welcome' to the world of the 'world wide web'!!! (very useful at times and also 'danger' at others...)
No, i have not received anything else from you through email. You mean 'Rajesh Sanghai' ?? I Cc him... ( Mrinalini-di sent me his email address... )
I would be interested to read your 'long letter in reply to your[my]'i don't know' letter' ... although... 'words' do not 'touch' me anymore...
only the 'touch' of the 'ultimate' could perhaps 'wake me up'... if 'It' (i.e. the 'Ultimate' ) 'exists' and can 'touch'...
" who may know...
perhaps the gods in the highest heavens may know... or perhaps even they may know not... "
May you be well...
give my pranams to Gauri-ma...

Dear X,
your e-mail of yesterday 3/08/2010 received. sending the copy of my long letter written in reply to your " i don't know letter" in the attachment file.
you should pray for the grace of the lord who might descend on you or touch you. meditation or prayer are the only means to find him but it is he who will decide when and how to descend.

Thanking both of you for your words of 'encouragement' and advices...
It is true that my mind is not 'quiet' these days... but it is certainly part of my 'onward path' so i welcome that too...
Without any 'thoughts', without any ideas, without any 'beliefs', without any 'faith', without any 'theories'.... empty... empty... completely 'empty'... i may go completely 'empty' one day... and then ... if anything appears at that state it may be 'something worth while' to observe and go along with it...
Having anything else to start with is 'dangerous'...
'Theories' when supported and 'fired' by 'shraddha' become the concrete stuff of one's imagination ... what i call 'dreams'... and i don't want to live in dreams anymore...
No matter what ... Life is 'interesting' and amusing sometimes... at others it may be painful and sad... aren't they both part of the same 'thing' we call 'Life'??? so be it...
Anything a man-wo 'does' (most likely 'imagining' that he/she does it!) takes him/her away from the reality of the 'emptiness'...
So be it... each one of us 'acts' and 'dreams' according to our 'nature'... that's why we are all 'puppets' in the 'puppet-show' we call 'Life'... So be it... till we 'wake up'...

Hello Mrinalini
If that's the wish of Gautamji then it is ok...

Two comments for your information:
1st : In general, i do not see 'problems' around me (and inside me). It is all part of the movement of the River-of-Life... waves... up and down... these are not 'problems'... 'problems' see the limited human mind....

2nd : I am not a 'follower' of Sri Anirvanji and i do not think i ever was. Once upon a time his written words had captured my attention and 'imagination'. Now, for years, i've tried to walk away from 'imaginary' things... How 'good' or 'bad' (both relative words) was for my 'growth' spending so much energy on 'imaginations' perhaps i will never know... So be it... Life is still a mystery...
May the 'gods' be 'real'...

X.
May you live in peace!
May all beings live in harmony!
May we all live in peace and in harmony!

RABINDRA SANGEET - JE RAATE MOR DUAAR GULI

RABINDRA SANGEET

-Je Raate Mor Duaar Guli
This song gives the extraordinary feeling of the capacity of Sri Anirvan to arrive at the very moment of emergency when he was needed. How he just appeared there, was a miracle.
http://www.esnips.com/doc/d68409ad-a62e-4c4d-ae57-9083ffda7336/Ashoktaru---Je-Raate-Mor-Duarguli

That night when my doors were smashed by the storm, I did not know it was you who had entered my house. All around everything went black, the wick of the lamp was extinguished.
I stretched out my arms to reach the sky, towards hope..
I did not know it was you who had entered my house,
That night when my doors were smashed by the storm.
I lay there sobbing, thinking it all a dream,
How could I know that the storm was a pennant of your triumph?
Morning dawned, and I beheld you,
A fountain of tears, you, yourself.
The whole house, save for ourselves, was and had been empty.
I did not know it was you who had entered my house,
That night when my doors were smashed by the storm.

Art thou abroad on this stormy night
On thy journey of love, my friend?
The sky groans like one in despair.
I have no sleep tonight.
Ever and again I open my door and look out on the darkness, my friend!
I can see nothing before me.
I wonder where lies thy path!
By what dim shore of the ink-black river,
By what far edge of the frowning forest,
Through what mazy depth of gloom art thou threading thy course to come to me, my friend?

- "I am thinking how so to fix the attention so it can be unwavering- never turns aside- Oh! What great a job-"

My interest in Sri Anirvan continues with greater intensity these days. I have read almost all the valuable translations of his writings appearing in the blogs.

Unfortunately I do not know any Bengali although ambitiously I got many of his writings from the Dharampal's when I met them some years ago.

BY VIKRAMAN BALAJI

request: it seems Sri Aniravan used to give regular talks on Sri Aurobindo's Savitri in the Pathmandir. It would be a great service if someone could translate these talks since Anirvan's insight would help clarify many aspects of Savitri.

Thanks again and best regards

Balaji

Sharat Kumar Bhushan Di' I do not know why these lines by Hammarskjold are coming to my mind after reading your comment.

"Night!The road stretches ahead.Behind me it winds up in curves towards the house,a gleam in the darkness under the dense trees of the park.I know that,shrouded in the dark out there,people are moving,that all around me,hidden by the night,life is a quiver.I know that something is waiting for me in the house.Out of the darkness of the park comes the call of solitary bird:and I go-up there

BY SUBHASHISH BORAH

subhashish borah

- We should be proud of what we are, and we should not be dejected at what we are not as we desire. We should be proud of what we are not that we didn't wish for.

But the horror is that we are starting to be proud of what we are not that we desire to be!

The philosophy is that if you are X, be proud of being X, and don't be dejected because you are not the most fortunate one of the world you may have a dormant desire to be so. And be proud for you are not the most unfortunate person in the world and you didn't, don't and will never desire to be so.

But don't be proud of your vain self-images, just be proud of what you are and realize it with optimum firmness. There is a difference between "Will" and "hope". Suppose you want to be something or somebody in this life time. You cannot become that, if you are not at this very moment not that something or somebody you want to realize.This should be dormant within you waiting just for expression or manifestation. When proper time, environment and other supportive factors will be available to you, and if you have the necessary will to be so, you will one day appear as such.

Let's be our realities, not our imaginations! Let's be free from our inner insecurities! And here I intentionally use the word to be 'proud' in place of simply to 'accept' oneself, because the fact of 'Will' cannot properly manifest through a meek humbleness or moral humility.."

BY GURUCHARAN OJHA

Gurucharan Ojha

- Accept my hearty greet "Jayaguru". I am from Odisha, Devotee of Swami Nigamananda Saraswati. I read little more before Swami Nirbana nanda Saraswati "Anirbana".

I just need to know about his life details.....

BY SUBHASHISH BORAH

subhashish borah - "It is the "sense of wonder" that as 21st century's "homo-fabers" or "homo-technicus" evolving(I doubt!?) far out of our real natures of "homo-sapience" we have lost and we have forgotten to be astonished at things beautiful and as well as horrific!! We have been oblivious of feeling strange at anything...

This sense of wonder I believe is the real essnce of all creativity not only poetry or other art forms but science, mathematics , physics, chemistry, biology etc everything...

It impels us to discover things"

BY ANIRBAN

Anirban NAMASTE,

"To all the members in this GROUP"

It's really a pleasure and an honour for me to be a part of this group.

SRI ANIRVAN - THOU ART THE RULER OF THE humble mind of mine. CANST THOU RULE mine DESTINY, TOO?

My most humble PRONAAMS to GOURI-MASHIMA and GAUTAM-MESHOMASHAI.

I DO PRAY TO THE LORD OF ALL LORDS FOR QUICK RECOVERY OF GOURI-MASHIMA.

OH LORD, I think I am pretty LOUD and CLEAR.

ANIRBAN-AKASH - Is it a confirmation that our desires/DESIRE are(IS) fulfilled?

For though our desires may yet be fulfilled in this very human birth, do we really crave for our DESIRE to be satiated? If so, how do we enjoy THE ETERNAL LILA?

May we be firmly grounded whilst we touch THE AKASH (The SKY).

Best regards,

Anirban

BY SMT KALYANI BOSE

Kalyani Bose Dear Anirban,

I was not being able to come to the site for a very long time. Just today I opened it up to see your page and am inpressed. Are you or do you know Bengali? Of course you are because you have read His books. Your question about enjoying the ETERNAL LILA has evoked in my mind an expression form Sri Chaitanya Mahapravu. The Eternal Lila is like 'Tapta Ikshu Charvan' - Again 'Mukh Jwale NA JAi Tyajan-

Prosanti O prasannataye Ujjal Theko.

May the Grace of Sri Anirvan bring in us the Yuganaddha Dyavaprithivi.
