“1963, 24 FEBRUARY – ÁNANDA SÚTRAM 2-3″
Sukham Anantam Ánandam -
Baba starts to speak in Bangla first here from 07:28 sec to 07:38 sec and then onwards from 07:39 sec Baba starts to speak in Hindi and translation starts here.
When the happiness extends to infinity, then we say it to be Ananda. You all may know that each & every object has its own waves, and each & every wave has its own wave-length, wave-length. If the wave has, when the length of the waves is shorter, for such an object, we say it to be crude object and when it is long, that is wave-length is longer, then we say it as subtle object.
When the wave-length, that is when length of the waves is longer, longer, longer, very much longer and when it becomes infinite, in that state, those length of waves is no more a wave-length, but instead it has become a straight line.
Consider when the length of the wave is infinite, that is it is neither a wave nor appears as a wave, and has been converted into a straight line, then it is called, for this state of that particular expression, it is known as “Blissful flow”(Ananda ka prabha). So for that reason it is said as, the wave of Atma-ic, what it is, its wave-length is infinite.
If the object, cruder it is, the length of the waves also is very very short, and if the object is subtle, then the waves also is longer and longer. As much as the object is subtler than subtle, the length of the waves will be going on becoming longer then longer, and when the object is more subtlest, here BABA says, a child must be quiet, and continues, here when the object is most subtlest, that is subtlest than subtlest, than what does happen there, the length of the waves becomes infinite.
When the length of the waves are infinite there we cannot say it to be a wave, then we say it as straight line.
That is when the happiness has been transformed to infinity, then what it is, in that state; we call it as Ananda and its wave-length is a straight line. So it is said that the Atma-ic prabha(flow of Atma) is like a straight line.
In the mind’s flow, there is a wave, but in the atma-ic flow, there is no wave, but it is like a straight line.
Sukham Anantam Ánandam – So the man, what is the man’s Sadhana is?
In the man’s thinking process, if in the thought waves, what thought is, it is a wave-length.
Sadhana means to make the wave-length more straightened, to straighten the mental waves.
Then Baba speaks this English sentence in Bangla.
When these makes the mental, if the mental waves are transformed to straight line, then how it is possible.
You know the mind’s one characteristics is, its special characteristics, its special dharma/quality is, whatever the object’s ideation is, whatever the object of ideation is, it becomes like that.
Suppose if the man’s object of ideation, when the man’s object of ideation is the subtlest form of Paramatma, then what does happen.
Paramatma’s flow is just a straight line, and then the man’s mental waves also gradually convert into a straight line. Sukham Anantam Ánandam – in that particular state itself that happiness is said to be Ánanda (Blissful).
In the mundane world, due to the crude and cruder forms of objects, one cannot attain the blissful state (Ánanda).
