Biography


PrabhatRanjan Sarkar also known by his spiritual name, Shrii Shrii Anandamurti and known as Baba to his disciples, was an Indian Philosopher, Author, Social Revolutionary, Poet, Composer, and Linguist. Sarkar was the founder of Ananda Marga (the Path of Bliss) in 1955, a Spiritual and Social organisation that offers instruction in Meditation and Yoga. GianiZail Singh, seventh President of India, has said about Sarkar: "PrabhatRanjan Sarkar was one of the greatest modern Philosophers of India."

Sarkar was known as an exceptionally bright child in his youth, practising Meditation by himself at an early age and displaying great knowledge of various languages and various topics; knowledge which was reportedly not gained in school, reading books, nor listening to teachers or any other outer source.

Sarkar's system of spiritual practice has been described as a practical synthesis of Vedic and Tantric philosophies. He denounced materialism and capitalism, and described the universe as a result of macro psychic conation – the entire universe exists within the cosmic mind, which itself is the first expression of consciousness coming under the bondage of its own nature.

Sarkar was a prolific author and produced an extensive body of works that includes theories aimed at increasing human welfare such as the Law of Social Cycle, the Progressive Utilization Theory, the Theory of Microvitum, as well as the philosophy of Neohumanism.
