Wikidpedia: an encyclopedia of Babadumb. Innaugral entry: Jai Ho Club

The Jai Ho Club was a latter-day inspiration of Chairman Bao. This fan club represented Bao’s inner circle  of Mothers, Queens, caregivers, attendants, secretaries, bodyguards, close fans and, it must be admitted, the occasional sycophant. Select members were given special names and functions, like Queen of Dunny. Jai Ho members were enjoined to wear The Three Ringsrepresentative of the Hindu Trinity, Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh, which names Bao would intone as he tapped the respective ring. The Jai Ho Club was essentially a spiritual glee club with special, rather unpronounceable mantras like Jai Ho Her Her Ko Ko Her Ko Her Ho Ho Ho, whose meaning remains elusive. For those who could not master the advanced mantras, the seed syllable mantra of Jai Ho was utilized. The Jai Ho Club included other, subsidiary clubs like the Jai Ho Dance Club, and the Jai Ho Internet Chat Club. The Jai Ho Club largely disbanded upon the passing of Chairman Bao and the end of the Kool-Chewy dynasty.

    Okay…indulge me. Is this for real, or your creative side being provocative? It is uproariously funny, and suicide inducing sad…simultaneously. I am a beuddled wayfarer.

      Hi Vesta;

      The editorial standards of Wikidpedia support a wiked sense of humor in the effort to disabuse Truth and Beauty of all foul and tattered garments. The Beloved is All in All.

    An Open Letter to Darvish Khan

    Who dares to cast ridicule and to insinuate blame towards any single act or word of our late Great Helmsman, Chairman Bhau, may he live ten thousand years, ten thousand years, ten thousand ten thousand years in our memories?

    Ref: Wikidpedia: an encyclopedia of the Baba Community. Innaugral entry: Jai Ho Club

    Chairman Bhau was already a Mahasiddha by previous attainment when Meher Baba veiled him for his work, thus dooming him, in his appointed role of John the Beloved Disciple, to be unintelligibe to the Meher Baba Community at large when his Mahasiddhic liberating sanskaras came up to be burnt off in the last five years of his life. The liberating sanskaras of Circle members (Mandali) of the Avatar do not create further sanskaras when spent, and unless and until they are are spent, the person cannot go on to his eternal reward of God-realization. Every single thing that Bhauji did and said towards the end of his life was one more step towards God. That nobody understood him, with the exception of never demeaned enough yours truly, several members of his family, and the current Iranian Shiiite Muslim immigrants to Meher Baba’s Indian Community in general, boots exactly nothing whatsoever, amen.

    I was one of the greatest beneficiaries of everything that the MB Community at large hated about Shri Shri Shri Vir Singh (Bhau) Kalchuri as he approached Union with His Devine Beloved, Avatar Meher Baba. From my re-appearance in the MB Community in the Ahmednagar District in 2010, Bhauji fingered me for one of his own, and absolutely did not get off my case until his death, amen. What was unique about me was that I hid nothing from him; rather than to back-bite him, I was right in his face with everything a felt about him, whether positive or negative. Bhauji was the only person in the Indian MB Community who valued that quality. The rest of them were infuriated that I systematically refused to join in the secrecy and the resulting back-biting which had become the entire tenor of life in that community. Therefore, shortly before his death, Bhauji subsequenetly then transmitted to me the entire Mahasiddhic blessing power that he had been demonstrating, to little avail in a Community which as a whole social entity simply didn’t deserve it and couldn’t recieve it.

    In truth, what was useless and a cause for nothing but vicious back-biting and open ridicule by the Community at large was my greatest spiritual need. By his spiritual transmission on his deathbed, Bhau became the root Guru of a new Buddhist lineage from Meher Baba as Maitreya Buddha through Bhauji to me as the second Patriarch. The establishment of this lineage is the purpose of my birth, a purpose pre-ordained by every detail of my life, including the Dharma name Vishveshwar that Bhauji transmitted to me from Meher Baba on the island of Kauai in the ’90’s.

    Hi Vishveshwar;

    You may well be right about Bhau having the karma of a Mahasiddha, etc. I don’t know. But even if this is true, it’s not relevant to my satire of the Jai Ho Club. Whatever the karmas were that compelled Bhau to act so strangely, they were unacceptable to the role required of him as chief administrator of the Trust. This is a practical issue, not a metaphysical issue.

    The argument is often made that Bhau as a Mandali could not make a mistake because of his yoga-yoga sanskaras. This is putting the cart before the horse. The Mandali’s role was to please Baba by obeying him, period. When a Mandali displeased Baba, he would correct him or her. If we imagine that Baba were in the body but physically removed from Bhau’s tamasha, and then returned to receive reports of it, would he be pleased with what transpired under the aegis of the Jai Ho Club? Definitely not. This is my point and conviction.

    Eruch’s litmus test was to only think, say and act as if Baba were before one. How would Baba feel about being praised with Jai Ho, etc?

    I suggest that the spiritual ambition which you have received from Bhau is not to be trusted.

    In Baba, Bill Gannett

      What can I say? Chairman Bao was handing out LSD. There are many others who went crazy with Bao’s Perfection. I have an assassin chasing me because I dissed Bao/ Ali!
