Society Building is a department of Ananda Marga and is directly related to the creation of “Whole Timers”(WT), “Local Full Timers” (LFT) and the celebration of “Revolutionary Marriages” (RM).
Whole Timers (WTs) dedicate their life for the betterment of society – and in turn, the society needs Whole Timers in order to foster the idealistic life of Ananda Marga.
The society also needs families that are able to lead their lives according to the Neohumanistic values of Ananda Marga. In Revolutionary Marriage, the bride and bridegroom embrace universal values and are not limited to marry a person of same economic status, race, or geographic area. Rather it is encouraged that everyone respect each others culture and background and international, inter regional marriages are common form of Revolutionary Marriage (RM.) At the time of marriage solemnization, the bride and the groom take an oath out of their own free will, accepting one another as spouses while taking responsibility of each others development in physical, psychic and spiritual realms.
Ananda Marga promotes Sam’gachadvam’, moving together to create a congenial, civil and spiritual society. Sam’gachadvam’ is not a forced movement, society members are not compelled against their will to conform to or to follow social norms. AM is against forced marriage, the dowry system, and marriages institutionally limited to the same caste/nationality/creed/race. It encourages and promotes the voluntary approach to Revolutionary Marriage, where individuals from different ethic, economic, national, religious, racial and other differential categories come together in the Ananda Marga union of marriage.
Human society is one and indivisible according to Shrii Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar, founder of Ananda Marga. Whole Timers, Local Full Timers and Revolutionary Marriages work in this direction.
Ananda Marga, through its Society Building Department, facilitates marriage between willing and mutually qualified individuals. It is similar to a matching service where the individuals are always allowed to make the final decision to marry or not to marry.
Additionally, the Society Building Department supports the creation of Ananda Marga Sannyasin, whole-timer (WT) monks (including nuns) who dedicate their all to the service of Guru: Renouncing ties to family, to personal wealth and to the personal sentiments, and giving their all to a new role as a Universal Servant as defined by Guru.
And, the Department is influential in inspiring young people to check out and live the life of Service, Sadhana and Sacrifice in the manner of Ananda Marga through the role of Local Full-Time Worker (LFT). LFT’s have the opportunity to support the Mission and its various departments/sections and trades, follow the WT lifestyle, do intensive meditation, and gain a better understanding of themselves and the world in need. LFT life is a fantastic step towards the final choice of Family life, or of Whole-timer life. After formal training sessions lasting approximately three-months, the LFT takes on a commitment to the Mission and its structure for some period, in coordination with a department/section/trade and the supervision of one or more Whole-timer Acaryas. The term of the LFT work commitment varies from six-months to a few years, with some LFTs performing in excess of a decade. Most former LFT’s fondly look back on their LFT experience as a valuable building-block, a gain in their lives, regardless of their final choice of the path of WT, or of family life.
It is hoped this short expose clarifies the Society Building Department roles in general, and in particular its process of facilitating healthy Revolutionary Marriages and the growth of Ananda Marga family life. The broad Ananda Marga universal family includes all – Whole Timers included, no one is excluded. The Society Building Department seeks and supports A’nanda Parivara, the universal blissful family.
