Transcripts - Namasmaran and helplessness
Student: Sir, sometimes I feel helpless for a strange
Teacher: What is it?
Student: Sir, I get sunken in questions; “How did I get
into today; from yesterday; without any specific
intention? Has anyone “transported” me irrespective of
my wish from yesterday into today? Who is He? In fact;
who made me live from my childhood up till now? Who
made me feel, think and act?”
As these questions overpower and engulf me! I get
terrified and helpless! I get shattered as I appear to lose
everything - my possessions, my status, my passions, my
feelings, my thoughts, my qualities, my values, my
missions, my people and even the devotion and
dedication for NAMA that I cherished for decades! My
inner world full of love, justice, freedom and joy; appears
deserted! This void is killing! I feel as if I cease to exist!
Teacher: Indeed your puzzle is uncommon! Very few
people may be facing this!
The reason for your questions is this. We, who are
actually beyond time; are trapped and wrapped in time,
space and energy and the sensations, instincts, feelings
and thoughts. This is actually trivialization of our selves.
But this happens in most of us.
As a result we get addicted to this caricature state; and
all the subjectivity and/or pettiness inherent to it!
As and when our true self - NAMA; involves us in its
SMARAN i.e. NAMASMARAN, we begin to get deaddicted
to our caricature state. But this deaddiction is painful. It
does not happen as smoothly as we would have liked it!
There are hiccups!
Your “helplessness and sinking” is the result of the
“abstinence syndrome”, as is seen initially; in a drug
addict, when denied a drug!
Student: Does everyone go through such deaddiction?
Teacher: Everyone goes through this process but
variably. Everyone may not confront with the same
questions and the same experiences. But this happens in
every being and is often experienced by many as some
inexplicable and indescribable restlessness referred to as;
VISHVAACHE AARTA by Saint Dnyaneshvar.
Student: Can this happen due to physical pains?
Teacher: This happens due to the experience of physical
pains, transient nature of pleasures, nostalgia of lost
moments, dejected feeling due to alienation from the
global events; and so on! All this is due to the process of
“our retrieval to original state; from our amalgamation”
with our caricature existence.
Student: What should I do?
Teacher: Always remember that the future road map is
inbuilt in this state! The NAMA, true self or Guru; would
involve you in NAMASMARAN and “restore” you from
body and senses; to you original subtle nature! You
WOULD get freed from the “hitherto cherished
possessions as well as your caricature self”! Ultimately
when you WOULD become the void itself, you would find
NO VOID BUT the whole universe TO BE within you!
