Social Psychology


(by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti as published in Táttvika Praveshiká in 1957)

For the existence of human beings in society the following fundamental factors are necessary – unity, social security and peace. What is actually required under each of these fundamental factors is discussed below.


Unity among the members of any society or social structure is absolutely necessary, otherwise the structure will start disintegrating. Lack of unity among the members of society because of too much self-interest in the individual members, the formation of groups for economic or social advantage, and the lack of understanding of others’ acts not only bring about the downfall of society but also completely eradicate it from the face of the earth. Instances of so many groups and empires disappearing altogether are not rare in the little-known history of this world.

The problem, therefore, is the preservation of unity in society. If it is possible to enthuse the members of society with the following they will ensure unity in society – a common ideal, a caste-less society, collective social functions and no capital punishment.

AMURT & AMURTEL relief teams are working on five islands serving tens of thousands of people and are expanding operations to assist more communities affected by Super-Typhoon Haiyan, known locally as Yolanda.

The typhoon devastated wide swathes of the central Philippines and has displaced 4 million people. The official death toll continues to rise well over 5000, making it the deadliest natural disaster in the country’s history. Thousands are still missing and more than a million houses have been totally or partly destroyed.

AMURT relief teams on Leyte, Panay and Bantayan islands, and another in northern Cebu province, have all been providing cooked food and bottled water; a further team on Samar island assessed the worst-affected areas in preparation for a possible longer-term recovery intervention.

In Tacloban AMURT has 22 stoves operating around the clock, the only source of cooked food and rice for the homeless and hungry survivors of the disaster. In some outlying areas, AMURT also provided basic medical care to the many people with injuries that remained untreated due to the lack of medical supplies.

ANANDA MARGA IN LOS ALTOS HILLS SENDS WAVES OF BLISS TO THE ENTIRE NEW YORK SECTOR

Sisters and Brothers Namaskar:

RDS was very successful with Akhanda Kiirtana on the Sunday after the Thanksgiving weekend. Didi Hiteshana (WWS), Didi Tapomaya and Didi Anudhyana were present. Didi Anudhyana is currently posted in Ananda Dhiira Master Unit. While in Los Altos Hills, Didi Anudhyana outreached to many margii families. She was hosted by Balaram, a local lawyer, and Suprabha, and participated in Balaram's Bay Area pracar projects. Sally Khanna also hosted the Didis. Shubhum’s mother, Susanne Suzette, a new margii, also hosted the Didis then volunteered to drive Didi back up to Master Unit after the food pick up from Whole Foods directed by Sister Shivanii.  Sister Shailaja and Krishna’s family, had a wonderful time in Los Altos Hills with Didis.  Didi Anudhyana, apart from visiting Komala Vilas for South Indian food and the Zen Center, also met former Bhukti Pradhan Chandravati, who was visiting the jagriti. The didis all worked closely with Sister Priti, the last los altos BP with rector Dada Agryabudhyananda, to pick up the bountiful food donations from Whole Foods to use during RDS. The local Whole Foods has been generously contributing organic food to the Los Altos Jagriti for as long as it has been in business.

Didi Anudhyana has unflinching faith in the Mission of Baba to make Ananda Dhiira a welcome place for all margiis and communities. This is the place to clear one’s mind with peace within. Hikes along the Yuba River is nothing less than Ananda Nagar of Shrii Shrii Anandamurti of Ananda Nagar. All sisters and brothers are welcome to visit MU. Didi Anudhyana can be reached at the MU Ananda Dhiira at 530-432-3618 Email: didianudhayna1@gmail.com.

O Lotus, I came up like a thorn in your stem. With momentum, the flood came down,  intoxicating me with strong upsurge of emotions. I was down in the pond, amidst muddy  water. By holding you on the head, I forgot all pains. In life numerous blows and counter  blows come. In order that You are not torn, I keep You lifted upwards.

This reddish earth moves on and on
in the rhythm of dance.
You should know that this is not merely soil
this earth is my mother.

In its fields, the sheaves of grain
gleam with golden light.
The children of its soil
bear an outlook of true gold.

O earth, my mother earth!
With its sky and stars,
with the fragrance of flowers
and its sweet water and air
with all these
remains my eyes consoling land.

O earth, my mother earth!

O Lord,
if You truly love me,
on such auspicious day,
come to me.

By Your grace
I will build true and perfect human beings.

O earth, my mother earth!

Recipe of the Month
by Bhaeravii

Panforte Bianco

Panforte is a famous Italian dessert that shows up during the winter holidays. It is a cross between a dense cookie and a rich solid-packed fruit cake. It is always made in a round shape and contains no butter or oil. It is translates to "strong bread", describing its spicy flavor with the kick of some black pepper and it has been made since the Middle Ages. It has a history. The Crusades carried panforte on their quests to the Middle East. The monks and nuns of the Italian monasteries received panforte as an edible tax. It was made in Siena, which is regarded as the panforte capital of Italy and many bakeries produce it. It is wrapped in colorful distinctive wrappings. But homemade is very nice. (READ FULL RECIPE)
