Poster for the film made in India by the Imperial Film company in 1933. Murli claims that the film led the founder into marriage seem untrue.. .


     In the murli of June 27 2014, Baba tells how how he went to see the film 'Saubhagya Sundari', which led to thoughts of marrying and 'this and that'. However, a quick Google search tells that the movie was made in 1933, by which time Mr Kripalani had sired a large family! (We understand that Baba married in 1900/01 when he was 16/17. As per custom of the time his bride was much younger).

To quote from the murli : 'He used to say: There is so much sorrow in this world. If only I could get ten thousand rupees, I would then be able to get fifty rupees interest and that would be enough to allow me to remain free. It is very difficult to look after a home and business.

Achcha! Then Baba saw a film called Saubhagya Sundri (The fortunate, beautiful woman) and then all the previous thoughts of disinterest were lost. He began to have thoughts of marrying and doing this and that. Maya slapped him just once and everything was lost. Therefore, the Father now says: This world is the depths of hell and, within this, those films and the cinema are also depths of hell." - 27.06.2014

BK leadership repeat this murli's apparent fiction as a cautionary tale for students of the university, referring to all films as  'sinema'.However,dedicated BK sisters manage to sneak off to the movies from time to time, often referred to as 'going to the dentist'.🙂🙂

Well Sam its just one of those apparent anomalies which are spread through the murlis: many redacted, others not.

The movie was made in 1933. At that time, baba already had a large family. What is the relation with/impact on Brahma baba of this movie?????

Very interesting in deed. It may be worth mentioning that Saubhagya Sundari Drama is a theatrical piece which started in 1901(heroine was Jayshanker Sundari)

Ah! However theatre doesn't get demonised in the murlis, and it was the film, the demon moving image, that we are told brought about BB's downfall

Funny-yet-significant, Robin. Puts a different spin on things when one understands an issue was so "personalized".

I remember that very Murli read the 80's. Sinema indeed. facts turn into myths and eventually become legend.

Dunc 18.01.2015 12:45

yes thats it. perhaps I should have said, " somewhere between the fact and the myth lies someones imagination". ;)

Hi Khemraj: Not sure what you are getting at here.This is a true copy of Lekraj Khoobchand's 1884 birth certificate, though you may 'think' 1874/76...

It is not accurate year of birth. perhaps 1884 should be certificate issued year. I think that Dada Lekhraj Khoobchand Kriplani was born in 1874 or 1876

Can we get audio versions of these murlis on youtube so that we can directly hear what bapdada said?
