The Fetters And The Freedom Dr. Shriniwas Kashalikar

  1. 1. FETTERS AND FREEDOM Dr. Shriniwas Kashalikar
  2. 2. The idiosyncrasies of a petty person can sometimes match with those of millions and when such a petty or mediocre individual emerges as a leader, the idiosyncrasies culminate in mass mania. As a result of this mania, you can see mass movements, demonstrations, strikes, agitations, and even riots and civil wars! The tragedy is that these violent outbursts in many other forms serve very mediocre or mean purpose and vested interests! What to do if you get diabetes or adversely affected by it in another way? What to do if you see the majority falling prey to detrimental or disastrous ideas? First Understand that the mediocre leaders and their followers are shackled in the fetters of
  3. 3. their pitiable and loathsome mediocrity (as any of us could be). It is as if they are unable to rise from the mud they are drowned in! Second Practice NAMASMARAN to get rid of your own and their fetters of mediocrity Third Express your views with full conviction and confidence. Fourth Remember that there is always some lag between ideal and practice! So do not worry about the inertia and minutiae of the mediocrity in society. Let their indifference or their resentment deter you from your convictions!
  4. 4. Your very involvement in your convictions is your victory! This is definitely possible through practice of NAMASMARAN! BUT WHAT IS NAMASMARAN? Dr. Shriniwas Kashalikar Namasmaran means; remembering the name of God, Guru, great souls; such as prophets and holy objects such as planets and stars. It may be remembered silently, loudly, along with music, dance, along with breathing, in group or alone, either with counting by rosary (called SMARANI or JAPAMALA) or without counting. The traditions vary from region to region and from religion to religion. However the universal principle underlying NAMASMARAN is to reorient your
  5. 5. physiological being with your true self. In fact while reorienting with true self you aim to establish and strengthen the bond or connection; between; your physiological being; with your true self. You aim at reunification with yourself! Since remembering your true self is the pinnacle of or culmination of individual consciousness, and individual consciousness is the culmination of every activity in life, remembering any name of God or Guru (any symbol of your true self) is equivalent to opening the final common pathway for the individual consciousness associated with every possible activity to get funneled into or unified with objective or cosmic consciousness. Thus NAMASMARAN is in fact the YOGA of YOGA in the sense that it is the
  6. 6. culmination of consciousness associated with every possible procedure and technique in the yoga that you are familiar with. It is the YOGA of YOGA because it is the culmination of consciousness associated with all the activities in the universe, which it encompasses as well! It is YOGA of YOGA because everybody in the world irrespective of his/her tradition and the beliefs; would eventually, ultimately and naturally reach it it in the process of liberation. Even so called non believers also would not “miss” the “benefit of remembering the true self through one symbol or another”! Just as NAMASMARAN is YOGA of YOGA it is meditation of meditation also! It is the natural and ultimate climax of every form of meditation.
  7. 7. These facts however have to be realized with persistent practice of NAMSMARAN and not blindly believed or blindly disbelieved with casual approach! In short NAMSMARAN is super-bounty of cosmic consciousness for every individual to realize it (cosmic consciousness)! This is truly a super-bounty because a person who experiences it, rises above mercenary, commercial and even professional and charity planes and manifest super- transactions in his or her life! These are just few observations to give rough idea about what is NAMASMARAN. NAMASMARAN is an ocean of bliss. Its true meaning is beyond description in words and has to b experienced, most preferably, by billions!
