Two-day yoga conference concludes
Ludhiana, October 3
“With spiritual progress, the mind grows in magnitude. The mind increases its periphery until it finally merges in the Supreme Entity.” This was stated by the spiritual head of Ananda Marga Pracharaka Samgha (AMPS) Vishwadevananda Avadhuta during a two days meditation conference which concluded here today.
He said during the course of spiritual progress, a spiritual aspirant would develop many faculties or attributes, but one must always be vigilant that these faculties do not divert one from the chosen path, from the cherished goal.
Large number of people from all over India attended the conference. After the afternoon meditation, followers took out a procession in the city with banner and placards.
In the evening, the Renaissance Artists and Writers Association (RAWA) presented a colourful cultural programme based on “prabhata samgita” composed by Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar.

Farmers in Davao del Norte reap profits from vegetables
DAVAO CITY -- Vegetable farmers in nearby Panabo City who had refused to lease their land to banana plantation operators a decade or two ago are now reaping the rewards of their decision.
While her neighbors jumped at the offer of sweet-talking representatives of the banana companies years ago, 55-year-old Anita A. Monsanto stuck to her farm. "Now, we earn about P3,000 per harvest for one week, or P12,000 a month," she said, referring to a hectare of land that her family could have leased out years ago.
A hectare of land planted to banana in Panabo started at a lease of P7,000 annually about a decade ago. The rate has since increased to P15,000 per hectare annually, tantamount to just P1,250 per hectare a month. Each farmer holds one to five hectares.
Panabo is known as the "banana capital" of Davao del Norte. Based on its own Web site, the city has dedicated nearly half of its agricultural land, or around 10,000 hectares, for export-quality bananas.
The Vegetable Industry Council of Southern Mindanao concedes that vegetable growing is not among the major sub-sectoral contributors to the country’s agricultural sector.
Namaskar Dear Brothers/Sisters,
I feel blessed with gratitude and deeply realize the grace of Supreme Will of Beloved BABA who has showered HIS grace to bring all His loving devotees to be here in this Blissful Dharma Maha Sammelan on 30 and 31st July with our Rev Ac Vishwadevananda Avt
Today was the 31 DMS day 31wherein early morning margiis were drawing towards Kiirtan Mantap has 120 hours Akhanda Kiirtan was nearing. It was such a glimpse of devotional flow that no devotee can remove from their ectoplasmic plate the vibration of Ba'ba' Nam Kevalam echoing and amplifying within.
With the time it came to an halt with Parama Pita Ki Jai and Taraka Brahma Ba'ba' ki Jai. Later Prasad was distributed. Ac Nigamananda Dada shared his memorable incident of how Kiirtan benefits Sadhakas physically, mentally and spiritually and narrated few stories related to it. Later Dada Siddhayogananda also said that Kiirtan can be done by any aspirant who is not so intelligent or lacks intellectually also. So with this kiirtan everybody has scope to attain highest rank.
Namaskar Dear Brothers/sisters,
Our all round life is going well by HIS overwhelming grace during this Spiritual conference cum DMS which is very much filled with excellent brightness in each one of us present with total gathering more 350 which includes childrens and Acaryas and margiis from different regions prominently from Moscow, Malta, Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, Africa, Israel and all the region of Berlin sector.

As per traditional system, Rev Dada was given Guard of Honour and after his arrival Kaoshikii by brothers and sisters, Tandava were performed. After one Prabhat Samgiita gave a Discourse on the subject “Our Relation with Ba’ba’”.
Namaskar Dear Brothers and sisters,
On 29 July 2010, our Rev Ac Vishwadevananda Dada addressed on the first day to the gathering of devotees who were present in the morning and evening program in community hall near Madhukaruna.
The subject of his discourse was “Ba’ba’ the perfect synonym of a Supreme Father”.
Rev Dada started with Ba’ba’s all pervasive power and love for Devotees.
Ba’ba’ started exhibiting the power since his birth while feeding him for the first time..
When Rev Dada was a small boy, when Dada and his best friend used to argue, to claim that my father was great or his friend’s father was Great.
You know, everybody has love for his own father.
Baba is the Supreme so he is the Father, that’s why everybody has love for that Supreme Father and HE is our Baba.
A father loves his child but the grandfather loves his grand children still more and great grandfather loves his grand children still more and more.
So Supreme Father who is the father of all children loves his children the Most, that’s why HE is Supreme Father of all.
Dear Brothers and Sisters, Namaskar !
