LEARNED AND EDUCATED
(quote from the Discourses of Shrii Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar)
What is saḿgiita or music? Singing, the playing of instruments and dancing are together called “saḿgiita”. Where there is only singing and the playing of instruments but no dance, it is called “giita”. In the time of the Mahábhárata, what Krśńa said was called “Giita” because He only told it, he did not dance. If Krśńa had explained the nature of Dharma while dancing, then it would not have been called “Giita”, it would have been called “Saḿgiita”. (read the all discourse given on June 15 1970 in Ranchi, India)

Samgiita means the combination of vocal music, instrumental music, and dance. Prabhat was the given name of the composer of these songs, so the school of music that these songs embody has been named Prabhát Samgiita. The word prabháta also means “dawn.” Prabhát Samgiita heralds the dawn of a new era of music.

The composer, Shrii Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar, initiated this school of music (gharana) in Deoghar, in the eastern Indian state of Bihar, on September 14, 1982, in the sixty-first year of his life. By October 21, 1990, the day of his departure from this world, he had completed 5018 songs, a number surpassing that of any known composer before him. This volume presents the lyrics of the first 200 songs with their English translations. They are mostly in Bengali, but in other languages as well.

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.
Prabhat Samgiita N. 879

On the upward movement unto light, I shall not yield to any obstacle.
However strong storms shall become; I won't be subdued in their thrashing.

The responsibility that I have taken on, I consider the vow of my life.
Until I attain my objective, I shall not stop on the path under any circumstance.
I shall proceed forward on the path of morality, ignoring thunders and meteors.
I shall not fear frowning and sinful powers. 
(Translation from the original Bengali)

It is sad for me to know the news of passing away of Acarya Ashesananda Avadhuta. He was one of the senior Sanyasi of Marga.His last posting was in Manila sector.He had been sick since long in Bangkok.When he became very ill,he moved to Varanasi,India a year ago. He was staying in MG quarter of Varanasi and getting his treatment. He died at 1 AM, Monday September 2nd 2013.He served our beloved mission of Baba more than forty five years. He was very hard working missionary of mission.I can not forget to add the name of margi brother Ajita kumar who served him day and night.
