You have to eliminate the mind by any process or Sadhana. Sound arrests the restlessness of the mind. Ram Nam is the easiest Sadhana by which you feel the presence of God with you.

Nama Article 7th May 2009

 

Swami Papa Ramdas

 

Just as you require a ladder to go upstairs, so name and form are ladders or symbols for us. We cannot think of the Impersonal. Then how to reach It? Through name and form. Sound arrests the restlessness of the mind. Repetition of Ram Nam is only a means to an end. You have to eliminate the mind by any process or Sadhana.

 

Ramdas found repetition of the Name to be the easiest. Name does away with the veil of ignorance most effectively and you become one with the Self, on the disappearance of the ego. It is called Upasana.

 

You feel God’s presence near you through some Sadhana. Ram Nam is the easiest Sadhana by which you feel the presence of God with you. Attunement of the mind with the Name will take you beyond the Name, and then the presence of God will be felt everywhere around you and in you, because He is all-pervading.
