[The Epic Tale of Sahaj Marg]

1945-2014: The Sahaj marg is 70 years old ...

It has spread across the globe. Decultured, deterritorialized and standardized, it has resisted rather badly the general evolution towards globalization and individualism. The official story from Lalaji to Babuji and Chari ... and soon Patel, is a vast historical fresco of more than a century, linear and fluid but completely phantasmagorical.

This phantasmic legend actually conceals multiple religious backgrounds, a spiritualism (spiritism?)  tainted with paranoia and permanent succession conflicts.  A history which is really not linear and fluid, but a jerky (bumpy? twitchy?)  and violent history ...

The Epic Tale of Sahaj Marg 
At the end of the nineteenth century, Lalaji (Shri Ram Chandra of Fatehgarh)  met a Sufi master. Together they founded a syncretic teaching between Hinduism and Sufism, in northern India. In 1945, on (the alleged) posthumous order of Lalaji, Babuji (Shri Ram Chandra of Shahjahanpur)  founded the Shri Ram Chandra Mission and the method of Sahaj Marg. Once cleared of any Sufi references, it spread to southern India. Arrived in 1964, Rajagopalachari makes a meteoric rise in the Mission. In 1982, Babuji, sick and aging, denies Chari and against all odds nominates his son to succeed him.

Immediately after his death, Rajagopalachari tries to impose himself as the leader with the support of his Western disciples, while supporters of Babuji's son continue to develop Sahaj Marg from its historic stronghold in Shahjahanpur, in the north of IndiaIn 1999, Rajagopalachari (Chari) returned to celebrate the centenary of the birth of Babuji, inaugurating the sumptuous Manapakkam ashram near Chennai. With his troops of Western followers and the financial power they give him, he returned in triumph to his country.  But to succeed in this feat, he widely adapted and modified Babuji's spiritual product. He exploited with limit the lowest instincts of his troops. He became an autocratic guru, but the resistances were multiplying ...

[The Sources of the legend]

First, a Syncretistic Teaching from Hinduism and Sufism (1891-1930)
At the end of the nineteenth century, 1891 to be exact, a young Hindu named Ram Chandra of Fatehgarh (Lalaji) met the master of an Indian Sufi lineage. This encounter between a Hindu and a Muslim is nothing exceptional in this region of northern India (Uttar Pradesh), being densely populated and heavily Muslim. Their friendship is much more surprising in this politically sensitive time when religious tensions between communities are exacerbated.

Hazrat Maulana Shah or Fazal Ahmad Khan Raipur (1857-1907), known simply as  Hujur, was the spiritual guide of the Tariqa Mazahariya. This branch of the Sufi Brotherhood of Naqshbandiya created by Mirza Mazhar Zanzana (1701-1781), is permanently implanted in Uttar Pradesh. There is already a kind of syncretism between the main Sufi brotherhoods and some traditional Indian and Hindu teachings. Hujur already taught equally to Muslims and Hindus. But he went even further in this direction with his disciple, Lalaji. Together, they highlighted the equivalence between Sufi and Hindu spirituality and realize a new synthesis. Their goal, completely against the grain of recent history dominated by isolationism against the British invader, was to abolish interfaith boundaries. The fruit of their work established that the primary responsibility for the spiritual evolution of the aspirant rested in the hands of his master, as long as he came into daily contact with his guru through meditation. The master would then pour divine energy into the heart of his disciple by releasing his impure thoughts. One finds some of  the basics of Santmat as taught by Kabir in the fifteenth century, as elements of the eleven principles of Naqshbandiya which already advocate silent meditation on the heart and the "constant remembrance" of the divine presence.

Following Hujur, Lalaji became the first Hindu spiritual Master of the Tariqa Mazahariya, without ever converting to Islam. His teaching is based increasingly on the Santmat of Kabir and his successors over time. Thus, many of his disciples founded the current of Ramashram Satsang, a sort of syncretism between Sufism and Santmat, which is now spreading in northern India.

In 1930, a year before his death, Lalaji appointed his own son, Jag Mohan Narain, to succeed him as head of the order, contrary to the wishes of Hujur to see the leadership access go to the nephew of Lalaji, Brij Mohan Lal Dadaji. It thus creates for the first time in a hereditary lineage of (Hindu) Sufism, which is called Tariqa Ramchandriya.

NaqshMuMRa (the Tariqa Ramchandriya, of the Sufi descendants of Lalaji), the Golden Sufi Center (Sufi Tariqa following the nephew of Lalaji), Ramashram satsang and
Akhil Bhartiya Santmat satsang (two syncretism between Sufism and Santmat) are still spiritual movements which claim a direct legacy (ligitimacy?)  from Lalaji and his family.

[The Birth of a Myth]

Sahaj Marga, a Refinement of Raja Yoga? (1931-1973) 

In 1945, not far from Fategarh, Ram Chandra of Shahjahanpur (Babuji) self-proclaims himself as the unique spiritual successor of Lalaji.

Different long-deceased personalities such as Lalaji, and Sufis such as: Baqi Billah and Hujur, and Hindus such as: Swami Vivekananda, RamaKrishna and even Buddha himself, come to him in dreams which he calls "intercommunications".  They (allegedly) asked Babuji to create the teachings of Sahaj Marga (Easy Way or the Easy Path ) and he founded the organization called: Shri Ram Chandra Mission (SRCM ) in Shahjahanpur.

Babuji actually met Lalaji three times in all ... that's it. The rest is the result of  "intercommunicatons" which begin after the death of Lalaji in 1931 then stop,  to resume from April 1944. Meanwhile, he attended various movements issued from the teachings of  Lalaji, such as the Ramashram  satsang of Dr. Chaturbhuj in Etah and that of Shri Krishna Lal Sikandrabad. He also dreams that he went to Kanpur, the seat of the family of Raghubal Chachaji Dayal, the brother of Lalaji and Brij Mohan Lal, the father of Dadaji. According to his journal, Babuji thought that he was surrounded by enemies and competitors. They have (allegedly) even tried to poison and murder him. Reality or paranoia?

The parents of young Babuji were initially offended by the Muslims (Sufis ?)  he frequented. Himself later, with his book "Efficacy of Rajayoga in the Light of Sahaj Marg", which he published in 1947, he makes a strategic refocusing of his teaching around the raja-yoga and Lalaji, thus eliminating any reference to Sufism. It is true that independence and partition were at the heart of the current Indian news at that time. Later, in 1963, (see Letter of Babuji, Feb. 15, 1963)  he even expressed the opinion that "Sahaj Marga" replaced the various Sufi orders he considers outdated ("have breathe their last").

Claiming to be a refinement of Raja-Yoga, the spiritual teachings of Sahaj Marg eliminates the difficult early stages of meditation, making it easier and more practical for our times. The Ten Commandments (allegedly)  issued by Lalaji to Babuji state that the practice also includes a prayer before sunrise, and at sunset, the repentance for sins committed. One must remember to have a heart filled with love and devotion, and the goal is to achieve unity with God.

Babuji begins his spiritual teaching in Uttar Pradesh, where Kasturi Chaturvedi becomes his ally,  and whom he soon will call: "the Saint of Sahaj Marga".  His fame quickly spread beyond northern India and to the whole country.  Men of the south such Raghavendra Rao of the southwest (Raichur , Karnataka), Dr KC Varadachari from the southeast (Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh) and Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari from further south (Chennai, Tamil Nadu).

The meeting between Babuji and Dr. Varadachari quickly turned into a deep friendship. Recipient of the famous Vivekananda Chair at the University of Madras, the professor of philosophy creates the Sahaj Marg Research Institute in 1965 and thus contributes to the dissemination of Sahaj Marg to the general public.

Babuji appoints preceptors to serve as the transmission channel between him and his disciples. In the late sixties, some of them go abroad and start to spread Sahaj Marg.  Babuji made ​​his first trip to the West in 1972, accompanied by Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari (Chari). And the Shri Ram Chandra Mission grew.

In 1970, Dr. Varadachari warned Babuji of the risk of drifts (commercialization?)  in the teachings due to its rapid expansion, but he died the following year. Babuji is also older and tired, he was 75 years old in 1974 when he was hospitalized at Lucknow. The previous year, Kasturi Chaturvedi, Raghavendra Rao and Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari had offered to assist him in his spiritual work. Kasturi would look after the north,  Rao, the south,
and Rajagopalachari, all the outside of India but Babuji refused and continued tirelessly traveling.

[The Battles of the Chiefs] 

Sahaj Marg, the Issues of Power (1974-1984)

Babuji first prepared his great friend, Dr. Varadachari, as his own succession.  But he died before him (Babuji), on January 30, 1971, leaving him in a lurch.  He then approached Rajagopalachari who became his disciple in 1964, naming him the Secretary of the Mission in 1970, and everything seemed to be going well between them. But suddenly, in 1982, everything changed.  Babuji sends him (Chari)  some severe criticism in a letter dated April 6, and appoints another secretary in his place on June 28.

In September 82, very sick and weak, Babuji writes from Paris about some plot to take over the assets of the Mission.  He accuses Rajagopalachari of trying to poison him repeatedly for eight years.  Finally, he adds that he (Chari)  is presenting himself to Western disciples as the future president of the Mission, he secretly appoints his own son to succeed him.  Reality, paranoia or senility?

In Paris, Babuji is sick. He is delirius and can't walk alone. The doctor who accompanies him confirms that due to his health, he should never have taken this journey. The French, André Poray seizes the opportunity to steal the show. In his corner, Rajagopalachari, susceptible is  brooding and becomes silent and aggressive.

Babuji dies on April 19, 1983. At the meeting held on July 10th, two contenders emerge. The eldest son of Babuji, Prakash Chandra, nominates his son , Sharad Saxena; while Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari has a letter of nomination dated 23 March, 1974.  The Working Committee tables its decision until the the next February.

February 84, Rajagopalachari, on the occasion of  Lalaji's birthday, goes to Shahjahanpur, but it is made clear that he is not welcome and must withdraw from the ashram. The Committee therefore meets without his presence.  At its meeting of February 6th and 7th, the new Secretary General SA Sarnad proposes that the committee be chaired by the elder, P.C. Chaturvedi. Both applications, Sharad's  and Rajagopalachari's and are rejected as forgeries. The committee said that
Rajagopalachari's letter was postmarked at an earlier date than that contained within, and that Babuji had filed a complaint regarding the theft of four blank letterheads of the SRCM. Sarnad then presents to the committee the secret letter of appointment dated April 16, 1982, evoked by Babuji and designating another of his son, Umesh Chandra Saxena. The Committee examines and validates Umesh Chandra as President. Sarnad is responsible for issuing a circular to announce that his appointment is to be ratified at the General Assembly before 982 members (quorum?), on February 8, 1984.

Proponents of Rajagopalachari, Kasturi and the Canadian Donald Sabourin claim to be witnesses to his appointment. The son of Dr. Varadachari, KC Narayana added that Babuji had announced in 1979 that he (Narayana) would have to work closely with Rajagopalachari after his death.   It is also said that Babuji had declared in 1980 in Munich that he would leave him (Chari) the power. And everyone agrees that the children of Babuji did not participate in weekly group meditations and never showed any sign of interest in spiritual things.

But Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari, this southern man, smoking American cigarettes and very westernized, is not at appreciated by all the senior preceptors.  In 1981, two of them, Raghavendra Rao and Ramachandra Reddy, conduct an unofficial tour of the United States in the company of  Umesh Chandra Saxena, who was not even a preceptor.  Critics also say that Rajagopalachari was removed by Babuji from all responsibilities and they add that he accompanied Babuji
on his last tour in France, without his (Babuji's) agreement  saying to Danish followers that he would be president, even before the death of Babuji.

Rajagopalachari's letter of appointment, is it a fake?  Did Babuji dismiss Rajagopalachari of all his functions? Does he rightly accuse him (Chari) of the worst atrocities in his letters from Paris, or  is it the result of delirium and/or senility ? Why did his family start by nominating Sharad in July, 1983 before availing themselves of Umesh Chandra's secret letter of appointment? These questions will probably remain forever unanswered.

Pointing to his son, Babuji stated that he would become president of the Shri Ram Chandra Mission Shahjahanpur and spiritual representative in line of succession. In his letter of accusation, he stated that he would be assisted in his task by KC Narayana, SP Srivastava and two other disciples. But Umesh Chandra temporarily gives way (the presidency)  to Srivastava, the newly elected (and not appointed) president, so as to avoid any dislocation of the organization. So the latter sits at Shahjahanpur, and takes on the the publication of  Babuji's Journal.

Rajagopalachari secedes, set up another committee in Hyderabad who appoints him President and he sits at the ashram of Chennai in southern India, and travels the world in search of support.  Narayana remains faithful to Babuji's 1979 request, and betrays the September 82 request, and he rallies to  Rajagopalachari and refuses to assist Umesh Chandra.  It is then the turn of Sarnad to join the clan of Rajagopalachari, thus interrupting the diffusion of the circular of appointment of Umesh. Rajagopalachari, in turn, contacts the preceptors appointed by Babuji, ordering them to recognize him as President, otherwise he dismisses them of their function.

In Europe, some disciples of Babuji completely lost, follow André Poray while begins a long legal battle between Umesh Chandra Saxena and Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari, for the presidency of the Shri Ram Chandra Mission and the control of the ashram of Shahjahanpur.

[Internationalization and Industrialization]

Sahaj Marg to conquer the world (1984-2004)

Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari, affectionately nicknamed Chari or Chariji by his disciples, is seeking a legitimacy which he lacks. He is familiar with Western culture and masters it perfectly. A graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree, he spent two years in Yugoslavia and then started working as a chemical engineering. Quickly, he joined the Indian industrial conglomerate TTK Krishnamachari & Co, where he directed its subsidiary Indian Textile Paper Tube until his retirement in 1985.  His work has taken him across the world on numerous occasions, representing his country at an international conference in Switzerland on ISO standards among others. A clever entrepreneur, he knows how to lead men and manage his affairs.

Constantly traveling, he visits all the continents, making the West his bridgehead.  He woos his disciples and they are quickly overwhelmed by this man.  They find him charismatic and with a strange look, both penetrating and disturbing, in other words, fascinating. They follow him everywhere, flock to his feet, asking his opinion on everything and anything and they display his portrait at home. The seeds of the cult of personality are all there, it will be cleverly exploited to enhance his power of attraction and dependance of his disciples who become followers and gradually enslaved.

He changed the spiritual practice, its definition and history to better suit his needs. Once the practice is codified and ritualized, the legends established and the spiritual product well standardized, the brand ™ Sahaj Marg is filed with the U.S. Agency Department of Commerce (U.S. Patent & Trademark Office) July 29, 1997. To top it all the statutes of the SRCM, a Californian society are deposited in stride.

Rajagopalachari named preceptors with a vengeance, not on their spiritual profile but according to their ambition and their careerism. He then practiced unbridled proselytizing, asking them to constantly recruit new followers. According to Babuji, the goal was to reach the critical mass necessary for the changeover (falling into?)  of humanity into spirituality. So he galvanizes his troops of preceptors after 
previously guilting them for their lack of results. They must get more numbers, increasing the numbers, just the number. Preceptors then sink into anxiety of displeasing the master, of never doing enough to earn his affection. A permanent malaise that is carefully maintained.

The strategy of seduction used by Rajagopalachari on Westerners and his management methods have been proven effective if one believes the figures advanced by one and the other. Lalaji had 100-200 followers, Babuji about 3,000 and 180 preceptors. Rajagopalachari takes that number to 20,000 in 1991, from 50 to 55,000 by 1995-97 and 75,000 in 2000 with about 1,500 preceptors. Many centers are open in Denmark, France and Switzerland, Canada and the United States, South Africa, Australia, Malaysia and Singapore or Dubai.

With his Western success Rajagopalachari therefore returns to India in 1999 as All Mighty, to celebrate the centenary of the birth of Babuji. On April 30th, he inaugurated the Babuji Memorial Ashram in Manappakam in a suburb of Chennai, a five-acre ashram that can accommodate 13,000 people inside the meditation hall.

For its part, the Shri Ram Chandra Mission, Shahjahanpur, has not experienced the same success. Elected in 84 and again in 90, Srivastava has published the second part of  Babuji's Journals  (May 1944-June 1955) in three volumes which appear in 1987-89.  In 1994, Umesh Chandra Saxena was elected instead of Srivastava but soon he is no longer unanimously. He does not work, uses the money from the Mission to support the lifestyle of his family and invites crooked politicians for rowdy celebrations.

Raghavendra Rao and Srivastava distance themselves, and Andre Poray is in France.

The defections have not spared the clan of Rajagopalachari. KC Narayana, who had taken the head of the Sahaj Marg Research Institute founded by his father abandons his post in 1991 to found the Institute of Sri Ramchandra Consciousness (ISRC) in Hyderabad. He blames Rajagopalachari for letting develop the cult of personality and refuses to recognize him as the spiritual representative of Babuji.  Kasturi Chaturvedi said much the same thing in a memorable speech on April 30, 95 to the followers of Rajagopalachari assembled in Chennai. Having never played an administrative role, she still takes a little more distance and retires to Lucknow.

In reality, Rajagopalachari was never completely absent from his country, but he is confined of his stronghold (fiefdom?)  in South Chennai. For his legitimacy, on the list of his preceptors are celebrities like Kasturi or the grandson of Lalaji, Dinesh Kumar Saxena, with or without their consent. He develops valuable relationships with Indian heavyweights. He integrates his own working committee with members of the judiciary, law enforcement officials and contractors.

With his interior supports and the money that comes from his western troops, he does not hesitate to regain by force, the ashrams run by his opponents. Thus, from 1984 to 1985, his henchmen seized the ashrams at Visakhapatnam, Nellore and Vadodara. In 1988, it was the turn of the Allahabad Ashram, then in 1991 Delhi and Moradabad, to a first aborted attempt at Shahjahanpur even in 1997.

 If one believes the interested person, the return of Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari to India is a smashing success and is crowned by a sound victory over his rival organization, the Shri Ram Chandra Mission, Shahjahanpur.  In 2003, he announced that the number of the disciples was multiplied by three in three years. 75,000 in 2000, it would have happened 200 or 300,000 from 2003-04.

[From Apogee to Decline?]

Sahaj MARG(tm), a Spiritualist and Apocalyptic Multinational (2005-14)   

The dusk of a multinational which has reached its apogee

Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari easily attracts more than 50,000 people during the great annual ceremonies he organizes to celebrate his birthday. These are the regular churchgoers, the contributors and the supporters. With this approach, we obtain a wide range of 71,000 to 260,000 supporters and practitioners worldwide. All this for a little over 3,000 preceptors ...

The Sahaj Marg ™ of Rajagopalachari is also a small property, real estate and financial empire. In 1997, Umesh Chandra Saxena estimated its assets to some 200 million euros when it had 55,000 followers.  If the property had followed the same trend as the number today it would near the billion. Dozens of ashrams, retreat centers, a research and  institute, international school, international brand. ... The organization that manages this multinational in greater opacity is composed of five foundations created between 1994 and 2012 Switzerland, the United States, India, Dubai and Hong Kong. To which are added a parent association (SRCM) and twenty satellite national associations, two societies for the management of the Omega School and a trust for the sale of publications.

Intoxicated by his power, Rajagopalachari uses and abuses without limits. In 2003, his henchmen try again to seize the Shahjahanpur ashram, only four days after the death of Umesh Chandra Saxena. They renewed their attempt successfully on April 2, 2006 and also seize the Raichur ashram after the death of Raghavendra Rao. Rajagopalachari went himself to Shahjahanpur in October 2007 to mark its symbolic victory. Self-proclaimed the only living master of Sahaj Marg in the world, he imposes his will on the alternate currents as well as on his own followers.

Pushing all limits, he no longer requires his followers to obey and serve.  In 2005, using only their confidence in him, he launched a campaign sale of € 250 per follower for a book whose contents were not even disclosed. In 2007, the subscription proceeded to USD $ 1,200 for an equally secret gift ... Forget the 10 commandments of Babuji, the book "Whispers from the Brighter World" becomes the new Bible of Sahaj Marg tm. Produced by the  spiritualism between a French medium and a long-deceased Babuji, this new religion promises to humanity a World Apocalypse. It also promises the best of his followers that their children will be a new race, an elite responsible for regenerating a new spiritual world to come.

 With its heritage and its power over men, Chari also went in search of external recognition which it lacks to get some respectability. To do this, he flirts with the United Nations humanitarian and educational themes. On the Humanitarian side, it opens some Indian ashrams to provide free care or distribute food, the "centers of light". On the Education side, from a paper prepared by the Research Institute he disseminates the spiritual values ​​of Sahaj Marg (VBSE) in a hundred Indian schools. In 2005 and founded his own school, Lalaji Memorial Omega International School (LMOIS).

The same year, the organization partnered with the Department of Public Information of the UN (DPI). In 2009, SRCM organizes a national competition composition written in all Indian schools in collaboration with the Information Centre of the United Nations for India and Bhutan (UNIC), on the occasion of International Youth Day, August 12. This action, taken by the only SRCM since 1989, has mobilized nearly 75,000 children and young participants aged 10 to 24 in 2008.

For Chari, all smiles! Sahaj Marg and SRCM are at their peak. All smiles, but the decline shows its face ...

From Dubai in October 2008, Chari suddenly decreed financial austerity and freezes all future projects. In January 2009, he declared a cancer gnawing at Sahaj Marg from the inside and that the organization is in danger of disintegration. The indiscipline reigns everywhere, there are divisions between communities and centers, dissidents who ignore the Mission. In short, he has nightmares where he sees the SRCM disintegrate into 240 small missions. His designated successor Ajay Kumar Bhatter resigned in 2010. Cornered, Chari appoints a new one in 2011 and announced his resignation to his advantage August 15, 2012 in a huge special bhandara (party) ...

Reality, paranoia or senility? Financial crisis, moral crisis of ego crisis? It is in any event an atmosphere of the "end of a reign" ...

Indeed, Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari is aging, at his turn. He celebrated his 85th birthday in 2012, and designated a successor to stifle internal conflicts. But this is not provided as a cordial agreement atop the hierarchy. Everything is fine as long as he is there, but tomorrow? His opportunistic
lieutenants are biding their time. His only son P.R. Krishna, the wealthy heir and his grandchildren Barghav and Madhuri, his latest appointed successor, Kamlesh Desaibhay Patel, Santosh Khanjee the "eminence grise" or even A.P. Durai, U.S. Bajpai and his henchmen, all prepare for battle.

Among the followers too, all is not well. In 2005, he eventually triggered some reactions by always asking for more money. A book sold for 250 €  and room auctions held during group meditation sessions at international gatherings at Vrads Sande in Denmark and Lignano in Italy, this is too much. The following January, unable to speak freely internally, a desperate Swiss follower opened  a web blog titled: "Long Life Sahaj Marg, stripped of the excesses of the Shri Ram Chandra Mission", (Pour Que Vive Le Sahaj Marg) soon followed by others. The myths he built are exposed, one after the other.

In January 2007, Navneet Kumar Saxena arrives in his turn to the web. Grandson of Babuji and president of of the Mission at Shahjahanpur, he informs that the legal battle waged by his father against Rajagopalachari is not always closed,  and accuses him (Chari), with official supporting documents. When he throws in the towel and is silent, it is the turn of another grandson of Babuji, Sharad Chandra Saxena, to take over.

Disciples Raghavendra Rao and Kasturi Chaturvedi open blogs and accuse them too. Dinesh Kumar Saxena, grandson of Lalaji, creates a website; KC Narayana, son of Dr. Varadachari, customizes his; SP Srivastava creates an association ... In France and Canada, people who followed Kasturi or André Poray reveal on the web that there are everywhere independent communities of disciples faithful to the teaching of Babuji, still very much alive today.

Chari has emerged as the undisputed boss of Sahaj Marg and has grown beyond all expectations. Market shares of Sahaj Marg are huge but they will soon be up for grabs. Everyone is stirred up and will say and do anything. As the person who remained anonymous
who uttered accusations of rape, incest and pedophilia without anyone knowing exactly which leader of Sahaj Marg was incriminated. As a delirious anonymous French medium in the gardens of Babuji Memorial Ashram without anyone stopping her, demolishing a couple in passing and not hesitating to establish herself as the spiritual representative of Babuji while predicting for 2010 a nuclear Apocalypse between China and Europe, where the UK would be totally destroyed ... 

This is only the beginning, and it is far from over! In this poisonous and apocalyptic atmosphere, all the wildest scenarios are possible. The only certainty is that the SRCM and Sahaj Marg have absolutely nothing to do near and/or far with spirituality, that is if this was ever the case ... one day, long ago!!
