BIRTHRIGHT OF THE MICROCOSM
BIRTHRIGHT OF THE MICROCOSM (“Brahmacakra, Jiiva and Exploitation No More”)**

Sarvájiive sarvasaḿsthe brhante
Asmin haḿso bhrámyate Brahmacakre;
Prthagátmánaḿ preritáraiṋca matvá
As you know, all are progeny of the same Supreme Progenitor. He created this universe and He created this material world, as well as the living children of His. Now, when he has created the material world, the inanimate world, the plants and the human beings, common sense says that the entire world belongs to His children irrespective of caste, creed, religion, nationality, standard of education, standard of wisdom, or standard of physical, mental or spiritual strength. It is the vested interests, who create disparity amongst living creatures, and specially amongst human beings—with their mean and base motives.
So those who exploit others and want to enjoy this created world by depriving others of their legitimate and paternal rights, they are enemies of the society. They are enemies of humanity, and they are enemies of the cultured, civilized world.
“Sarvájiive sarvasaḿsthe brhante.” But, the created beings, His loving sons and daughters, His children, they are moving around Him. They cannot get themselves detached from Him because He is the Supreme Nucleus and others are all just like electrons moving round (1) the nucleus. So the Puruśottama, Parama Puruśa, the Supreme Father, the Supreme Progenitor, is in the center, and others are moving and dancing round Him. They move along with their different psychic and physical pabula.
Physical needs are not the same [for all]. So, I said they are moving with their respective pabula. And similarly, psychic longings, psychic desires, psychic propensities are not the same for all. Here it has been said, “a’jiiva”, a’jiiva means “occupation”, both physical and mental, that is, the pabulum. It is a fact that each and every individual has got his respective physical pabulum and also psychic pabulum. But this doesn’t mean that one’s physical pabulum or psychic pabulum should be snatched away by others. That is, one must not be deprived of one’s physical pabulum and psychic pabulum. And those who do like that, or those who try to do it, I say they are enemies of human civilization. They are the cursed children of the Supreme Progenitor. “Sarvájiive.”
And, “sarvasaḿsthe.” Now, according to mental propensities, mental longings and desires, mental thirst and hunger, they get different frameworks, different physical structures, in order to quench their thirst, satisfy their hunger. So, some are in an animal form, some are in insect form, some are in plant form, and some are in human form. And even in human form they are different from one another according to the difference in their reactive momenta.
Now, according to the difference in their reactive momenta, the distance varies from the Nucleus. Somebody is a few inches away, somebody a few feet, somebody a few miles—but all are moving round Him. Somewhere the radius is small, somewhere the radius is big. Someone is moving around the Parama Pitá like this, someone like this, someone like this. But they are all moving, and each having its own radius according to its own reactive momenta. But, move they must. They will have to move round Him, just like electrons moving round the nucleus. “Sarvájiive sarvasaḿsthe.” So they are moving with their own physical and psychic pabula, in their respective structures, in their respective forms.
Now, when one’s goal becomes cruder from crude, the distance, that is, the length of the radius, increases. He is drifted away from the center because of his base thoughts, and base longings, and base actions. And when the thoughts and actions become subtler from subtle, the length of the radius decreases, and a day comes, a sweet moment comes, when he becomes one with the Nucleus. That is what is called mokśa. “Sarvájiive sarvasaḿsthe brhante.”
“Asmin haḿso bhrámyate Brahmacakre”—“Haḿso” means “jiiva”, that is, “living”, with the acoustic root, haḿso. Haḿso is the acoustic root of jiiva.
Each and every object has got its own acoustic root. “A” (2) is the acoustic root of creation. “Ae” is the acoustic root of knowledge. “Ka” is the acoustic root of the expressed world. “Kha” is the acoustic root of the sky. “Ra” is the acoustic root of energy. Similarly, “haḿso” is the acoustic root of the jiiva.
“Tasmin haḿso Bhrámyate Brahmacakre.” This haḿso, this jiiva, is moving along this Cosmological system, along its Cosmological route, like this. “Asmin haḿso Bhrámyate Brahmacakre.” The small system, the atomic system, and bigger than this system there is this ethereal system of ours. In the atomic system there is a small nucleus, and electrons are moving round. And in our ethereal system, the earth is the nucleus and the moon is moving round it. And, in our solar system, the sun is the nucleus and so many planets and satellites are moving round it. And similarly, in our Brahma Cakra, the Puruśottama is the Nucleus, and each and every entity, animate or inanimate, is moving around Him. तो, “Asmin haḿso Bhrámyate Brahmacakre.” And they will be moving round Him, like this.
“Prthagátmánaḿ preritáraiṋca matvá.” So long as they feel that they and their Nucleus, Progenitor and its progeny are different, are away from each other—as long as they think that they and their Sender, that is the Progenitor—are two different entities—they will have to move like this. And when they’ll feel that, “I am a part of that Supreme Father and I should be one with Him, and be one with Him in this big ocean of divine nectar”—they become one with Him. Prthagátmánaḿ preritáraiṋca matvá. As soon as they feel, “No, no, no, not a different entity, not any separate entity. They are the same thing, rudimentally they are the same.” Then and there, what will happen? That gap, that is the radius, will disappear. They will become one with the Nucleus. This is the merger with the Nucleus. तो, Prthagátmánaḿ preritáraiṋca matvá.
“Juśt́astatastenámrtatvameti.” And when by His grace, by the grace of the Progenitor, this feeling is developed, that “we are not two different entities, we are fundamentally one”. Then and there, his movement like this stops. And he goes beyond the periphery of the circle of life and death. Now, for this divine grace, what one is to do? People say that in order to get the divine grace, one should develop love for Him, one should love Him. And, how to love Him? To love Him means, by serving, by loving His children. If you want, to be graced by a lady, what you are to do? You are to love her child. If you love her child like this, the lady will be very much satisfied. So, the Parama Purus’a will be satisfied when you love His children. And, who are His children? These created beings.
So, those who want to exploit others by preaching fools’ philosophies and scoundrels’ logics, they are the cursed persons of the Supreme Progenitor. They are adhármika. Each and every human being should be given equal scope to develop himself. And, nobody in this universe should be exploited. There must not be a wee bit of exploitation in the world of human beings.

(1) Bábá often says “round” instead of “around”. One well-known grammarian says that round is also fine: “‘Round’ works virtually anywhere ‘around’ would work. The reverse is not true, as round has a number of definitions it doesn’t share with around. … British writers in particular are wont to use round in place of around. This substitution does occur in American English, but much less often.”
(2) For those familiar with the devanágarii alphabet, we are inserting here below the same paragraph together with the devanágarii equivalents for the respective sounds. Using the devanágarii letters, the sound expected will be easily understood:
Each and every object has got its own acoustic root. “A” [अ] is the acoustic root of creation. “Ae” [ऐ] is the acoustic root of knowledge. “Ka” [क] is the acoustic root of the expressed world. “Kha” [ख] is the acoustic root of the sky. Similarly, “Ra” [र] is the acoustic root of energy. Similarly, “haḿso” is the acoustic root of the jiiva.

(3) Lord Shrii Shrii Ánandamúrtiji always blesses those present at the end of a discourse, by saying “Kalyáńamastu” or “Shubhamastu”. On some recordings the sound is cut just after the discourse ends due to which Bábá’s blessing is not heard. In such cases, we put Baba’s blessing in square brackets to indicate that it was given by Bábá, but not heard on the particular recording.
