  1. 1. MY SPIRITUAL QUESTION DR. SHRIIWAS KASHALIKAR
  2. 2. How to (and also why) forget myself in NAMASMARAN? Isn’t it frightening to forget myself? Moreover, isn’t it true that remembering can be difficult at times; but can be possible with efforts; but forgetting voluntarily is almost impossible? I never liked this; which I felt a defeatist state then; because it appeared to be complete submission to circumstances and signified utter cowardice! It appears; that forgetting myself in NAMASMARAN is not the same as being oblivious about; myself; as such without NAMSMARAN. That is a state of unconsciousness or ignorance.
