Namasmarana – The Best Means and the Best Medicine:
Namasmarana is the best means. Only, you do not really believe that it can cure you or save you, that is the tragedy. People believe in the efficacy of only costly, brightly packed, widely published drugs; the simple easily available remedy which is in everybody’s backyard is ignored as useless. Ref: SSS Vol II Ch 31, p164-165
Add Feeling into Namasmarana:
Dwell on the Nama and its sweetness will saturate your tongue and improve your taste. Do not count the number of times you have repeated it. Who are you going to impress with the number? The Lord will respond even if you call Him just once from the depths of feeling; He will turn a deaf ear, even if you call Him a million times automatically, artificially with the tongue, not with the heart. It is easy to amass figures. Numbers are easy to manipulate, but, Grace does not depend upon them at all. He asks for the heart, the full heart and nothing but the heart. Ref: SSS Vol IV Ch 36 [Diagnose your own disease] p204 -Baba
How do I participate in the Sadhana?
All our Sai brothers and sisters from various centers can participate in this simple, but powerful Sadhana of writing (Likhita Japa) of our beloved Swami’s Name ‘OM SRI SAI RAM’, with Faith and Love. The Name is packed with infinite potential to purify, sublimate and transform the mind and the heart. To invoke the divine within, there is no better method than Namasmarana. The heart is the spiritual centre of an individual. Purify the heart by Namasmarana. I shall come to dwell therein.
How do I use the Namasmarana sheet?
- The Sadhana is performed by writing ‘OM SRI SAI RAM’ in the Namasmarana sheet.
- The sheet has 2 sides, printed with 108 boxes each, to write ‘OM SRI SAI RAM’.
- After the completion of a sheet, it can be deposited in the drop-box provided in any of the Sai Centers in Singapore.
Where do I get the copies of the Namasmarana Sheet from?
Printed Namasmarana Sheets will be handed out on Thursday at the end of bhajans at Sai Baba Centre, 133 Moulmein Road. As you complete one, you may return it to the sevadal on duty and request for more. Alternately you may photocopy or download and print the sheet using the link below, before you start writing and return them as and when you complete the sheets.
What will be done with these completed Namasmarana Sheets?
The completed Namasmarana Sheets will be taken to Parthi this December and Vibhuthi will be packed in these sheets charged with the Divine Name, for distribution to all.
What do I achieve through this Sadhana?
Ultimately the process is to cleanse oneself and through that, the rest of the world. While this is not the only path or sadhana, Bhagavan always says – this is the simplest and easiest path.
One can follow any path, but one path and one focus will lead us to the goal faster.
