Namasmarana – A Universal Sadhana

By Sathya Sai Baba, a quote from his little but very important booklet entitled “Namasmarana.

4. You can adopt and practice any of the various and countless Names of God as enumerated by Sages of all lands and all languages. When you awaken to the duties of the day, repeat the Name; when you retire after the duties of the day, recite It again. Have it as your constant companion and inspiration. You can then never falter or fail. You will grow purer and stronger every moment.

5. Rama, Krishna, Jesus, Allah, these are names of the Many-faceted One. When you pay attention to one facet, the rest are not neglected or negated. When the devotee dives into the flood of Bliss which One Name-Form confers, he is diving into the same ocean of Bliss that the Full is. The waters of this ocean are not separated by lines drawn on them to demarcate “This God’s Region” and “That God’s Region”. Plunge anywhere, you are plunging into the self-same Bliss.

6. Namasmarana, thus done, unites people by making them realize that they are all children of one and the same God and thus paves the way for Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man.
