Hanuman Chalisa

Post by TruthSeeker on Wed Aug 29, 2018 2:57 am

One of my last conversations with my mother:

Me: You know, whenever I feel scared, I say the Mantra which Daadi (paternal grandma) taught me when I was about 5-6 year old.

She: Oh really? What is it?

Me: I have been using it for the last 30+ years mummy. It works all the time. It goes like this, and I recite this to her, while she is going through her chemotherapy:

"Raam Bhajo Shri Baaram-baaraa
 Chakra Sudarshan Hai Rakhwara"

She: *smiles* - and that works for you?

Me: Yeah.... I mean, it distracts me enough to make it work.

She: I read Hanuman Chalisa. 

Me: What is it? Is it not too lengthy?

She: I read it everyday in the morning.

Me: Oh.

----------

Now, I listen to Hanuman Chalisa just to find my mother in it.

You should talk to some professional in such matters.

During a memorial event in California, a seeker asks Sadhguru the best way to handle grief over the loss of a loved one.

almost all men, particularly indian men, in their early childhood see the world only through the eyes of their mother, for relatively extended period of time. In those formative years everything and anything sticks strongly to the mind, including their almost total dependence on the mothers. That's so deep rooted, it's not possible to erase it completely, when the mother departs - for some it takes a very long time, and if there is guilt that they could have served better/saved/extended their mother's life, then it tends to become irreversible. It consumes one, and you prosecute yourself, everyday.... and invariably you end up taking it to your grave.

Mai apni Maa ke liye sentimental kya ho gaya, you are referring to me to professionals, eh?

To me, its normal.

Yes. I was in grief. Almost over the process.

But thanks your support and response, it does help.\

Regards,
TS.

Thank you FH.

After watching Sadhguru's views, I shall not question death, but simply accept it.

It just is.

The part that he did not touch upon was - How can one life be better without another?

We are interconnected. What is the meaning of life if we are not?

Regards.

The meaning is most important.

The most convincing reply I have found to my Q when some loved one departs is - 

"Imagine they are looking at you. What would they like to see?"

And, I ALWAYS end up "smiling" :-)

Regards.
