ASCETICISM AND INDULGENCE DR. SHRINIWAS KASHALIKAR
The spiritualism is usually associated with asceticism. Naturally; those who want to establish themselves as spiritual leaders; tend to show that they have no material needs. Sometimes they are honest but other times they are dishonest cheats! Basically the material needs are physiological. Neither their uncontrolled indulgence (due to mediocre literary trends and/or mercenary hype), nor their forcible suppression (due to fanatic imposition of abstinence, austerity, celibacy etc) are in tune with spiritualism. They are absurd and impart pathological stress
on the innocent followers and are irrelevant to spiritual growth! Further; in contrast to the popular assumption; the austerity can be as mean, petty, prejudiced and malicious as the much maligned bewildered indulgence! You can overcome these hurdles (without going into the theoretical and endless arguments) in your spiritual progress; through NAMASMARAN and extract and experience everything best (the essence or the nectar) at every stage of your of life! By practicing NAMASMARAN you emerge triumphant and get rid of the pathological craving of indulgence or psychiatric obsession of suppression
step by step and actually breathe in and out the sublime cosmic romance for ever! Moreover you stop becoming coercive and atrocious in either way to the people around you because of the inner growth associated with NAMASMARAN!
