Shri A R K Sarma is a Gold Medalist in Science Graduation, Graduate in Electronics and Telecommunications and Diploma Holder in Marketing Management.
Shri Sarmaji is in the Telecommunications field for the last 29 years. He began his career as a Class-1 officer in engineering services of Government of India. At present he is holding position of Additional Vice President in Tata Teleservices (Maharashtra) Limited.
In spite of his busy and hard routine work, author is practicing meditation and devotional practices regularly for the last 25 years. He was initiated in Mantra Diksha by Rev. Swami Tapasyanandaji of Ramakrishna Mission, Chennai in year 1988.
Author’s heart pines for his beloved –Sri Ramakrishna and in spite of leading a Technocrat and householder’s life, has already “Surrendered” his “Life” and has a dream to become instrument in the hands of Sri Ramakrishna and to do deeds in the service of Devotees of Sri Ramakrishna. The author commutes everyday for minimum 3 hours and this traveling time of 3 hours, he utilizes in doing JAPA (Namasmarana) by following time management techniques, while carrying out mechanical activities involving no active participation of mind. Author has explained this particular and many other time management theories quite elaborately in this work called “SHARNAGATI”. Shri Sarmaji is offering the fruit of such practices along with this book on “SHARNAGATI”, to the spiritual welfare of all the Devotees, who are not able to devote enough time in thinking of God due to various circumstances and conditions.
The techniques mentioned in ‘Unconscious Programming of the Mind’ of this book, are widely practiced by the author on most regular basis. This is the first humble effort of the author towards fulfilling his dream of spreading Bhakti Yoga, which is the most suitable spiritual path in Kaliyuga as propagated by Bhagwan Sri Ramakrishna Dev again and again.
We, sincerely pray to The Holy Trio for their Blessings on Shri A R K Sarma and on us for bringing out this WORK OF GREAT LOVE and GREAT LABOUR by SHRI A R K Sarma.
I am glad to foreword a book that is keyed to the needs of modern minds. Today we are in an ultra-modern age wherein even examinations, medical consultation can be had online. New trends are coming up in every field of human endeavor, and the very constitution of man is undergoing a radical change, as it were. Consequently, scriptural injunctions, and the ethical codes of yore-however genuine and valuable they may be-simply do not weigh with the current scenario. Sayings such as ‘old is gold’ sound like ravings of a demented old man. So it is high-time now that religion and spirituality too are put forward in an alluring new fashion.
Shri A R K Sarma has promptly risen to the occasion and has pioneered the novel method of conveying the religious teachings. The present volume deals exhaustively with the principle and practice of Sharangati [resignation to God] with the life and teachings of Sri Sri Ramakrishna as the pivot. The author’s grasp over the subject and the depth of his understanding are explicit in the pages. Besides, it is commendable choice that author has taken the words of Sri Ramakrishna to propound ‘Sharangati’. Because, as Swami Vivekananda points out, life and teachings of Sri Ramakrishna are totally scientific and rational, in as much as they can stand all scientific examinations and critical analysis, even as any other physical science can.
The nectarine words of Sri Ramakrishna are illustrated here with copious pictures which removes boredom usually occasioned by a scriptural study. The author has taken much pain to ensure a pleasurable reading. The schematic diagrams put in at proper places help the reader to conceptualize the theme unmistakably. Interesting incidents from the life of Sri Ramakrisha is another attractive feature. The chapter on the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi is an added fascination. The last chapter on frequently asked questions is very thoughtful and has enhanced the utility of the compilation. That the author has succeeded in sustaining the curiosity of the reader all though the book is indeed undisputed.
This diligent effort of Shri A R K Sarma with highly academic qualification and vast experience in telecommunication field, will surely enable the novices to effortlessly comprehend the essence of ‘Sharanagati’ [The practice of surrendering oneself to God], and also help all aspirants towards their spiritual goal. By the unbounded grace of Sri Sri Ramakrishna, may this pictorial exposition, guide and inspire the aspirants especially the youth in the path of God-realization.
