This means that NAMASMARAN; like rain; is a bounty of nature and beneficially affects all; irrespective of what we plan for ourselves and others; but not in a particular or predictable or in demonstrable manner!

Confession

  1. 1. CONFESSION AND NAMASMARAN DR SHRINIWAS KASHALIKAR
  2. 2. Student:Sir, can I ask you a personal question? Teacher: Yes, if it is very important for you! Student:Have you conqueredanger? Teacher: No! I have not!I have not conquered anger, fear, pain, passions, worry, anxiety or otherfeelings such as apprehension, inhibition; guilt and so on! Most importantly; I have not overcome my ego! I have not overcome my otherlimitations and drawbacks includingmy personal habits. Student:Then what is the use of NAMASMARAN? Teacher: Frankly speaking; I did not chooseto be what I am and I did not choosemy predilections!The environment, the people, the books and later the thoughts and conviction about the power and scope of NAMASMARAN enthralledme! This is the power of Guru! But as far I remember, NAMASMARAN appeared to me a key to individual and global blossoming through sublimation of petty selfishness! For me the other byproductssuch as conquering SHADRIPUS (the physiological and psychological characteristics integral to human life) were not important. Student:Do you still think that global welfare is an incoming thing?
  3. 3. Teacher: It is true that I was rather overwhelmed by the byproducts of NAMASMARAN in social life; as some are impressed by the personal victory over the SHADRIPUS; but both of them are not stereotyped and hence; are not predictable! Student:This means that NAMASMARAN; like rain; is a bounty of natureand beneficially affects all; irrespective of what we plan for ourselves and others; but not in a particularor predictableor in demonstrable manner! Teacher: We can verify all this; on the basis of our experience!
