The Power Of Namasmaran Dr Shriniwas Janardan KashalikarDocument Transcript
The usual questions, which have appeared in my mind
and that of others; are:
What do you gain by NAMASMARAN?
What are the advantages of NAMASMARAN?
What are the benefits of NAMASMARAN?
How are we profited by NAMASMARAN?
What are the proofs that NAMASMARAN brings
prosperity and wellness?
The answers to all these questions are unsatisfactory.
NAMASMARAN does not assure any gain,
advantage, benefit, prosperity, wellness etc. Many
practitioners of NAMA are seen with many difficulties
and problems of different sorts!
The argument that NAMASMARAN gives satisfaction
is also not convincing. Many practitioners of
NAMASMARAN are in genuine difficulties and can
not be said to be satisfied!
“What is the concrete advantage of NAMSMARAN?”
one of my MD students asked me!
I answered, “Nil! You can practice NAMASMARAN
and decide what you experience; rest all is vanity!”
But why do we ask these questions?
These questions arise because our mind is completely
trivialized. It is completely trapped, involved,
engrossed and addicted to pettiness. It is merged with
pettiness. It is as if; we live as slaves in our own house
instead of ourselves!
NAMA reminds us that the house is ours. We are
owners. So once we recognize that we are the owners;
we stop being miserable and beggarly. We stop asking
for things, as we are the owners!
NAMASMARAN reminds us that we have powerful
wings and we can fly! With this reminder, we begin to
fly instead of miserably waiting for someone to help us
fly or carry us!
NAMASMARAN reminds us that we are immortal
electricity and not the fragile and perishable bulbs!
Our fear and insecurity disappears!
NAMASMARAN reminds us that we are beyond time
and due to our obliviousness to our identity, we get
trapped in the physical experience of past, present
and future, rendering ourselves redundant and
helpless! Our anxiety and depression disappear!
NAMASMARAN reminds us that we should resume
the forgotten capacity of riding on time and instead of
getting dragged! We begin to live as kings every
If we realize this, then above questions become
redundant or actually meaningless! There is nothing
that we would ask for and think of in exchange for or
as a result of NAMASMARAN!
This state of our being achievable through
NAMASMARAN can not be shown or guaranteed to
others! There is no strictly predictable result of
NAMASMARAN. It varies with person to person.
If we are convinced about it we can practice,
experience and share with others.
But the others have choice to believe or disbelieve and
verify our experience; or otherwise respectively!
