Learning From Mahatma Gandhi Dr Shriniwas Kashalikar
It is said that Mahatma Gandhi
preached that you don’t see, hear or
speak ill about any one.
I have given some explanation about
this in my book “Stress:
Understanding and Management”.
But more recently I have begun to
realize that the essence of this
preaching is; when you start “seeing”
the root of the apparent universe,
through the practice of SADHANA
such as NAMASMARAN; you begin
to realize that the people whom you
used blame or revere; are actually
driven by the root cause called
MAHAKARAN and manifest
according to their constitutions on
which they have no control.
This perception leads to two things.
Firstly; you stop getting agitated
because of the apparent chaos and
disturbances around you and acting
violently or feeling helpless; and
secondly; you realize that the radical
solution to the problem is intensifying
your SADHANA such as
NAMASMARAN so that you get
merged with the MAHAKARAN and
see everything as a reflection of the
I might not have agreed on this
earlier; you also may not agree. It is
worthwhile however to try the practice
of NAMASMARAN and verify the
validity of these observations.
