AKHANDA NAMASMARAN: DR. SHRINIWAS KASHALIKAR
Student: Sir, I find NAMASMARAN quite ineffective in pain. How to reconcile this
inefficacy with the so called omnipotence?
Teacher: Actually your observation is about the practice of NAMASMARAN is
correct. In the initial stages, which may continue for unspecified time, we do find
that we are still miserable during pain in spite of practicing NAMASMARAN.
This is because;
Firstly; NAMASMARAN is not a pain killer i.e. an analgesic. It does not have
physical and chemical properties/characteristics of an analgesic. It does not
therefore kill pain.
When we say that it is omnipotent; it means that it is at the root of all events
including time. Secondly the word omnipotence has to be compared with the
limited potency of any being as such, whose even limited desires, wishes,
ambitions, plans etc, do not succeed in a predictable manner.
Expecting NAMASMARAN to work as a pain killer is erroneous and illusory. In fact
it is erroneous to expect NAMASMARAN to work as per our desires or wishes!
NAMASMARAN is like oxygen. Just as oxygen is essential for physical life,
NAMASMARAN is essential for freedom of consciousness.
Just as the effect of oxygen in everyone’s life varies, the effect of NAMASMARAN
in freeing the individual consciousness also varies.
It is said that in some individuals, whose individual consciousness has freed from
the body, as a result AKHANDA (continuous) NAMASMARAN, the perceptions of
past, present and future; and even the pain; become incapable of overpowering
Nothing can interrupt their blissful state of AKHANDA NAMASMARAN! But like
the effects of oxygen in different tissues and cells, these effects of NAMASMARAN
also do not take place at once or with any identifiable rule, pattern or a time
The visionaries envision this truth and its benevolence in individual life and the
universe and proclaim it with authority and authenticity!
