SLAVERY TO FREEDOM Dr. Shriniwas Kashalikar
The preaching of prayers and worships can appear to be the advice of impotency; to young mind. The decrees to worship imaginary and yet unimaginable God can appear absurd and slavish; to buoyant and bubbling youth. The concept of “Be good and do good”; can appear gullible, baseless and irrational; to pragmatic rationality. The condemnation of sensual pleasures can appear ridiculous, because life without sensual
pleasures can seem meaningless and disgusting. Hence, there is no sense in either condemnation or glorification of pettiness and superficiality, and neither repression nor hype of glamour and glitter can be effective in global welfare. But the practice of NAMASMARAN can gradually emancipate us from the suffocating slavery of being petty self into the freedom of being universal self!
But NAMASMARAN is not an obligation! It is a Golden Chance a Golden Opportunity! The ocean of happiness in a) being on the pinnacle of intellectual, emotional, instinctual and physical endeavours and achievements and beyond the sensual pleasures and pains and b) being transformed from contingent state into field state awaits one and all!
