  • 1. APPEARANCE AND REALITY: DR. SHRINIWAS KASHALIKAR The glamour and glitter of the world tempts one and all, with some exceptions which prove the rule! But even as it is well known that all that glitters is not gold and all that does not glitter is not NON gold, we tend to fall prey to and are completely deceived by glamour and appearances! In fact we are deceived by appearances in both ways; one by getting tempted by glitter and getting repelled by non-glamour! Our education for generations is full of such deceit! The so called acculturation is also full of such deceit! This is why in general; we are attracted by the royalty and repelled by poverty. We are tempted by riches and repelled by ashes. We are depressed by abstinence and excited by indulgence. But it is also true that our idols and ideals are determined by our constitutions, moods and even whims and fancies! Hence our idols and ideals can be contradictory! They are violent (war heroes), nonviolent (Buddha, Gandhi, Mahavir, Jesus Christ), economically rich (Bill Gates), economically poor (Vinoba Bhave), physically strong (Mohammed Ali, Dara Singh), physically weak (Srinivas Ramanujam, Stephen Hawkins) and so on, without any clarity about why this is so! If we carefully introspect, then we would realize that depiction of saints is usually deceptively sympathogenic (one that generates sympathy in your mind) and also one that triggers pity in your mind! On the contrary, the photographs of the film stars and the political leaders are deceptively euphoria-genic (one that leads to euphoria and pleasant and grandiose excitement)! The seekers of truth are never pitiable. They are always the guiding light houses. We should seek the truth irrespective of whether we belong to science, arts, philosophy or technology and not get swayed or dictated by any appearances, which are deceptive! Is this possible?
  • 2. It is said that through the practice of NAMASMARAN, billions can help billions in seeking truth and emerging victorious and merging victoriously with it! One need not believe in this, but one may verify! DR. SHRINIWAS KASHALIKAR
