Human beings should always re-member that living beings are only actors in the vast universal dramacomposed by Táraka Brahma. This isnot their real identity. Someone may play the role of a king in a drama butthey might not even have two hand-fuls of rice in their house. Someoneplays the role of a poor subject inthe drama, but in real life they may  be a very rich man. One should re-member: We are only playing spe-
cic roles in a great drama. I willact properly according to the role I
have been given in this drama. This
is a person’s duty. It is meaningless
for a person to think about anythingmore than this – about what is be- yond one’s power.4 April 1979, PatnaShrii Shrii Anandamurti

One Day of Universal Consciousness is an initiative launched under the ban-ner of “One Human Society” - a department of Ananda Marga actively engaged in bringing people together through love and peace all over the world.The choice of December 21, 2012 and the nuclear location of Guatemala isin reference to the end of the Mayan Calendar that marks according to the nativepeople of Guatemala and South of Mexico the start of a new era.Shrii Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar had announced on 24 March 1990 in Calcutta,
India the coming of big changes with the following statement:
“History moves in rhythmic waves – in a systaltic ow. It moves and moves, thenthere is a galloping jump. Again it moves and moves again, then there is another galloping jump, and so on. All of a sudden there are galloping jumps – epoch-mak-ing eras. We are now at the threshold of this jump. We are not only at the threshold,we have just crossed the threshold of a new era. We are now at the threshold of something new – of the new age – and we are now passing through such an age. Do you realize it? We are no more at the threshold. You should be ready for great changes, otherwise balance will be lost.” 
Marking the Beginning of a New Era
One Day of Universal Con-sciousness in Guatemala has the meaning to bring people together where the harshreality seems to divide them phsically and mentally due to fear and ignorance. Gua-
temala is living difcult times but the nature of spiritual people can’t be wiped out.
There is a strong underlying spiritual energy in all Guatemala felt by all the nativepeople who understand at the deeper level the eternal Truth of humanity. UniversalConsciousness is the common thread for the whole creation. There should not beany fear of annihilation of the human society.The end of the Mayan calendar is not the end of the world; it is an astronomicalcalculation that marks the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new one. Let us
come together and celebrate in the most dignied way, removing all bounderies that
divide our minds. We will meditate in the place we live and we will celebrate withneighbors as our friends in the most sacred immortal human tradition of hospital-ity. For 24 hours on december 21st - 2012 - “Human society cannot be divided intomany - Human society is One”For those interested to coordinate the organization of One Day of UniversalConsciousness, please write to

The world of living beings has been created within the imagi-
nation of Parama Puruśa. It is the resolution of Taraka Brah
-ma to emancipate living beings, but only those who wantliberation get liberation. When a human wants or longs forliberation, they attain the sadguru.
 Muktyákáunkśayá sad-gurupráptih.
 However some want liberation and some do not. One person wants liberation but does not get it, while another gets lib-eration even though they do not want it. What kind of a thingis this? Some people say,
máunganá marań samán hái, mat koi máungo bhikh
[to beg like death, so do not beg]. Thensome other say biná máunge motii miile, máuge miile ná rákh[You can get the boon of emerald without asking, but not evenashes if you beg for them].
It is a strange thing, a mysterious thing, and this mystery isthe drama of Parama Puruśa. Living beings are only charac
-ters in that drama. Human beings have come to this earth
 with a xed role to play, and that role must be properly ob
-served. One should always bear in mind that one is a characterin this divine drama. And who is the author or composer of this drama? Táraka Brahma.This reminds us of an old story from the Mahábhárata. After
the battle, the battleground of Kurukśetra became a crema
-tion ground. At the end of the war some people came therefrom the Kaoravas’ side, among them were women and a few elderly gentlemen. The mother of the Kaoravas, Gandhari,
 was also there. Kunti, the mother of the Pandavas, and Krśńa,
the Pandava’s friend, were present as well, along with the blind Dhritarastra. Everyone was standing in that cremationground and weeping. The Kaoravas were also weeping, evenGandhari, for she had lost her beloved hundred sons in the war.
Krśńa approached Gandhari and said: “Mother, why are you
 weeping? Death is a natural law of the world. Játasya hi dhru- vormrtyuh. One who is born will die. So what is there to cry about?”
Gandhari replied: “Yes Krśńa, I have also told the distressed
suffering the bereavement of death the same thing that you
are telling me today. I have consoled them with those very same words. You know this and I know this, so what is theneed of telling me this?” She continued: “Krśńa, you havecome here today to console me in my grief, but I ask you, be
-hind this great event whose mind was at work? Who was theauthor of this great plan? Was it not you?”
Krśńa replied: “Those who have committed injustice andsinned have been punished. What can I do about that?”
Gandhari again said: “Everything you have said up until now is quite correct. From the worldly point of view, everythingthat has happened up until now is as it should be, becauseevery action must have its reaction. But my point is this: You yourself areTáraka Brahma; your duty is to liberatethe living beings. You can give liberation to whomever
 you please. In form of Táraka Brahma you can create as you wish and destroy as you wish. In this drama of yours
 you have created many characters who are very honest
people, ideological people. If one does virtuous deedsthen one gets liberation. In order to teach the people this
 you create these kinds of characters. And you also createsinful characters in order to teach the people how mucha person degenerates as a result of their sinful behavior.
In this drama of the great war which has taken place ineld of Kurukśetra, you could have had my hundred sons
play roles of righteousness and the Pandavas play roles
of unrighteousness, if you had wished it. In that case my 
hundred sons would have gotten salvation and the Panda- vas would have gone to hell. You are Táraka Brahma, theauthor of everything, and now, after having made me cry, you come to console me!” What Gandhari said was correct. Táraka Brahma formu-lates his plan in order to produce itihás [history with edu-
cative value], to teach the people. If one does honest works
then one moves towards the eternal truth, and if one per-forms dishonest works then one moves towards untruth.
He wanted to x this great teaching in the minds of human
 beings.Thereafter comes the other part of the story. Gandhari
said: “Krśńa, give me permission to curse you.”Krśńa replied: “Okay, curse me. I give you permission.”
Then Gandhari cursed him by saying: “Just as my entirelineage has been destroyed before my very eyes, may your Yádava lineage be destroyed before your very eyes as well.”
“Let it be so,” Krśńa replied.
Human beings should always remember that living beingsare only actors in the vast universal drama composed by Táraka Brahma. This is not their real identity. Someonemay play the role of a king in a drama but they might noteven have two handfuls of rice in their house. Someoneplays the role of a poor subject in the drama, but in reallife they may be a very rich man. One should remember:
 We are only playing specic roles in a great drama. I willact properly according to the role I have been given in thisdrama. This is a person’s duty. It is meaningless for a per
-son to think about anything more than this – about whatis beyond one’s power.4 April 1979, Patna
