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.
Alternatively getting excited, elated,
disturbed, agitated or unhappy in a variety
of situations in absence of NAMASMARAN;
is reacting subjectively; and hence not
working to remedy the root cause.
I have experienced both of these responses
and still keep on experiencing. I do not think
it is objectionable if any one else also
experiences these; though I feel these are
stages of transition.
Now a days; I seem to understand that
forgetting myself; in NAMASMARAN is
forgetting all individual and subjective
doubts and suspicions; while I am engaged in
remedying the situation from the root cause!
It appears to be most satisfactory.
In this state of being I am probably focused
on as well as active with the controlling
center (which is beyond the concept of
change and often referred to as
BHAGAVANT or PARAMATMA) of all
situations; which are ever-changing and
illusive (and hence often referred to as
MAYA in Indian literature).
The practitioners of NAMSMARAN are
most welcome to make candidly critical
