The Cult of Spirituality – the Cult of Pinnacled Order

by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti



"Now, even those who are advocates of devotional or emotional faculties say that people get propensive propulsion from devotion or emotion. When the mind moves along a particular track or follows a particular discipline in a methodical way, this is called “devotion” or bhakti; but when it does not follow a particular method, when it moves haphazardly, swept away by whim, it is called “emotion”. This is the fundamental difference between devotion and emotion. You must know this clear-cut silver line of demarcation between devotion and emotion.
Those who adhere to this cult of pinnacled order know that there must be a happy blending amongst intellectual-cum-intuitional faculty, actional faculty and devotional-cum-emotional faculty. None of these is unimportant, all are of equal importance, but the finality comes in devotion."

Patna Dharma Maha Sammelan, 13-14 October 2012


Patna is the capital of Bihar – India.

At distance of 34 years the Margi of Patna has warmly welcomed Rev. Purodha Pramukha A’carya Vishvadeva’nanda Avadhu’ta that is shouldering the spiritual leadership of the Ananda Marga Mission today.

Dada Aks'ayananda story and healing


Dada Aks'ayananda is an example of service for all. He has run the homeopathic dispensary in Tiljala for many many years and he is continuing till today inspite of a health that sometimes gives him alarming signs. I met him in Ranchi when he reached just for one day for the Central Committee election held few days ago. We were invited to a Shraddha Ceremony for margi Bipil of Ranchi. He talked in Hindi and just one sentence in English stroke my mind: "massive heart stroke". (read more)

O Lord, You have come.
Like a peacock unfolding its tail,
You have spread Your effulgence
into the vast blue sky.

By Your touch
my hopeless life,
found new light.

By the tinkling sound of ankle bells
the three worlds have awakened.
Now that You have allowed me to hold You,
come still closer, sit still closer beside me.

I have no energy nor devotion to display.
All I can offer is my wholehearted surrender
and pranam (salutation).
By accepting these, provide fulfillment to me.
