prsarkarFrom his early childhood in Bihar,, where he was born in 1921, P.R. Sarkar has been attracting others by his deep love for humanity and guiding them along the path of self-realization. Adjusting the ancient science of Tantra Yoga to meet the needs of this age, he developed a scientific and rational philosophy and a system of practical disciplines for physical, mental and spiritual development. Recognizing him as a spiritually realized Master, his followers called him â€œShrii Shrii Anandamurtiâ€ (which means â€œHe who attracts others as the embodiment of blissâ€) or simply â€œBabaâ€ (father).
Those who followed his teachings found their lives transformed as they overcame the weakness and negative tendencies of the mind and experienced a deep peace and bliss within. Inspired by his selfless example, they turned their energies to serving the society and elevating the oppressed.
In 1955, while still leading a normal family life as a railway official, P.R. Sarkar formed the organization Ananda Marga (â€œThe Path of Blissâ€), and began training missionaries to spread his teachings of â€œself-realization and service to humanityâ€ all over and later throughout the world. Reflecting the broadness of his universal vision, Ananda Marga has become a multi-faceted organization with different branches dedicated to the upliftment of humanity through education, relief, welfare, the arts, ecology, intellectual renaissance, womenâ€™s emancipation, and humanistic economy.
In the field of ecology and environmental awareness, Sarkar propounded the philosophy of Neo-H
