The title is repeated!
The understanding of NAMASMARAN also goes
on renovating and rebuilding itself but with
Understanding and experience of
NAMASMARAN go on becoming multi-colorful,
sweeter, melodious and rhythmic! The feeling of
NAMASMARAN becomes pleasant and inspires
one to share it with others! Understanding,
experience, feeling go on becoming deeper and
deeper and get percolated in every system in the
body. They gradually becomes a central or core
part of our total personality. They become the
central theme of our behavior.
In fact; “We” become secondary and NAMA and
its understanding occupy the supreme position
It is true that we might have (or not) started
NAMASMARAN with some expectations or
some wants. But gradually they become
In fact NAMASMARAN not only goes beyond
the selfish motives, and absorbs selflessness and
lack of expectations, but embodies experience of
eternal and vital relationship between a GURU
and DISCIPLE, objective self and subjective self,
immortal self and mortal self and the cosmic
nectar of NAMA that he receives from GURU
and the individual.
NAMA is like an ocean of nectar.
NAMA is like the oxygen of mind.
NAMA is like unseen link or immortal bond that
creates eternal relationship amongst the
practitioners of NAMA.
In as much I have been involved in stressing the
impact of NAMASMARAN in day to day life, I
frankly agree that it is but one aspect of
NAMASMARAN, as tactfully suggested in his
email, by respected Prof. M. V. Kelkar, the
author of a set of four books entitled
“ADHYTMA SAMVAD”, published in Marathi.
The books embody the discussions of a group; of
which the author was a member; with Prof. K.
V. Belsare. He has also authored a beautiful
book on the significance of GURU in one’s life;
as has appeared in Dnyaneshvari.
It is true that NAMASMARAN appears to be
restricted to the lips, mouth and vocal apparatus.
It is obvious that there is the benefit of silence
and absence of ill thinking and feeling about
others during NAMASMARAN.
It is also not difficult to understand that while
doing NAMASMARAN the focus from sensory
pursuits can shift to one’s innate core.
But how could we explain the healing capacity of
NAMASMARAN, in terms of
But how could we explain that NAMASMARAN
embodies all the ingredients of YOGA?
Subsequently one may experience the
involvement one’s feeling in it. But beyond this,
the NAMASMARAN does not reveal its all
encompassing glory to each and every one! It is
probably only the all times greats like
Brahmachaitanya Shri Gondavalekar Maharaj
I have a feeling that:
NAMASMARAN is an objective door to the
cosmic consciusness that transcends the
dimension of time.
This door is created by the cosmic consciousness
Himself; through great sages and seers; from
time immemorial, through their practice of
NAMASMARAN. This is referred to as making
a NAAM; SIDDHA. Hence it is said that NAAM
given by a GURU has immense significance and

Probably it is better not to “understand but
rather keep experiencing the NAMA.
The dimensions of NAMA have appeared in Gita
in terms of encompassing individual life and
consciousness associated with it, whole universe
and the consciousness associated with it and the
time; and the consciousness that transcends it.
But trying to be conscious about these aspects of
NAMA can cause strain on individual
consciousness and tear it apart!
But I think; this is exactly the role of NAMA; to
tear apart and destroy the so called individual
consciousness i.e. subtlest form of ego!
Practicing NAMASMARAN is like sealing the
hole in the boat; that saves oneself along with
Namasmaran is like paving a way, building it
well and planting trees by its side! It becomes
useful for generations after generations.
NAMASMARAN is like constructing a perennial
source of nectar for the pilgrims of the Almighty!
NAMA is like oxygen in the air that is
ubiquitous. If we breathe, i.e. do
NAMASMARAN then it benefits every body
But I don’t know whether NAMA can still help,
if we close ourselves in a polluted atmosphere,
and/or refuse to breathe! May be the
NAMASMARAN by others is like breathing in
oxygen and giving out oxygen! Hence if we have
a company of a person who is practicing
NAMASMARAN then we still have a chance to
NAMASMARAN is like creating and nurturing
a garden full of medicinal plants, fruits and
fragrant beautiful flowers. The beauty of
NAMASMARAN is that it can not be restricted
to one’s own petty benefits. It is always
benevolent to all; even those who may thousands
of miles away and known or unknown! It is said
to be useful even to those subtler entities whole
“life” does not fit in the usual laws of biology!
