Namasmaran skepticism, cynicism and sarcasm dr. shriniwas kashalikar
Is it not possible to successfully tread through the four progressive stages of traditional stress management and prevent VINASHA in some other simpler ways and/or through some short cuts? In my experience; NO! It is not possible in any way other than NAMASMARAN!

There are broadly four stages of our development; which takesus to perfection, self realization, objective existence, eternaltruth, sacchidananda, ishwar, paramatma or parmaeshwar.Traditionally these stages are identified as baddha, mumukshu,sadhak and Siddha.Baddha means completely oblivious to one’s true self and totallylost in one’s subjective or petty self. One can say, totallyindividualistic.Mumukshu means one who gets ambiguous but haunting “wakeup” calls promptings from the core of his or her heart. Therestlessness begins. The search of the “self” though, withoutdirection or clarity begins. There doubts, distractions,disturbances and frantic activity like that of a person who justbegun to learn swimming.Sadhak stage begins when the mumukshu gets the guidance anddirection for the search. The efforts get rectified and refined. Thepace, the swiftness and the momentum increase. The progresshowever is full of subtle, conflicting, confusing, harrowing,dreadful spells of ordeals in physical, instinctual, emotional andintellectual realms of an individual. These are often destabilizing,uprooting and violent in nature. These are essentially the ordealswhich destroy all kind of subjective frameworks of an individualand bring him closer to objective state of existence.
Siddha is a stage; marked by the final and extremely subtleprocesses of dissolution of subjective or individual self intocosmic self. The struggles in this stage are often beyond thecomprehension through language of digits and letters. Thesestages are beyond the comprehension of our all stages ofindividual consciousness. These stages are also beyond threedimensions.When we are in the first 3 stages of development we are tenderand delicate within. We are amenable, accessible, vulnerable andsusceptible to damaging and harmful influences and inflictionscoming from within us; and from the people trapped in variousphases of the stage of baddha. Baddhas manifest in many ways.But; possibly the most dangerous manifestations are thepowerful inflictions such as the skepticism, cynicism andsarcasm. These manifestations of the baddha individuals arestupefying, disorienting, distracting, distorting, dragging anddevastating in nature. The baddha individuals knowingly orunknowingly manifest these and energize, expedite, facilitate theprocess of dementia, amnesia i.e. loss of memory of our self orsoul consciousness; and suck us in the hell of VINASHA! Themeaning of VINASHA i.e. ghastly total destruction; according toGeeta, Dnyaneshvari and Dasbodh; and in my experience also; isobliviousness or forgetfulness of God i.e. our true self.Hence it is said; “To prevent VINASHA; avoid the company ofthose, who forget, deny or denounce God i.e. self and/or maligntheir motherland, guru, mother and father! Such avoidance
whether physical, mental or intellectual; is possible; through theunshakable steadfastness and persistence in the practice ofNAMASMARAN. Is it not possible to avoid VINASHA in someother simpler ways and through some short cuts? In myexperience; NO! It is not possible in any other way!”
