Yajnya, sacrifice and namasmaran dr. shriniwas janardan kashalikar
Are Yajnya, sacrifice and namasmaran are
Yajnya is offering, sacrifice is also offering and
NAMASMARAN is also offering!
Yajnya involves offering of different materials with
a specified procedure.
Sacrifice also involves offering of possessions
including the near and dear objects and entities.
The NAMASMARAN is a gradual process (of
Yajnya and sacrifice) that involves the offering of
thoughts, emotions, passions (instincts); and even
the physical needs and existence.
Through NAMASMARAN one realizes in the course
of time, the subjective nature of one’s thoughts,
emotions, instincts and material needs resulting
from the internal and external environment and
drops them at the lotus feet of the objective
consciousness i.e. guru.
The individual thus gets freed of all exasperating
vacillations and agonizing burden of subjectivity;
and enters into eternal freedom by merging with
NAMASMARAN. There onwards he or she is more
than convinced that all his or her life mission is
being carried out by objective consciousness, cosmic
consciusness, Almighty i.e. Guru. The mission no
more remains “his” or “her”! The mission thus gets
freed from the subjective attachment and resulting
fanaticism. It gets freed from subjective infatuations
and frustrations. It thereby blossoms into the
aspirations of mankind (and cosmic will) in true
sense and continues far more effectively and
accurately than what the subjective considerations
Does this really happen?
At least at present, I am convinced that it does.
But it is best for the readers to verify and tally my
conviction with their experience.
