Every human being desires joy, excitement, music, dance and carefreeness in life, but when finds that the world is not offering any of these he starts to look for plastic pleasure in wine, drugs and cigarettes. This is in fact an attempt to force joy or pleasure into life through unnatural means.
And this is nothing new for even in the ancient times kings, ministers and those burdened with heavy responsibilities would seek artificial means to free their minds of the tensions and worries of that day. Their physicians would prepare for them a special drink which wrenched the mind free of worries. This drink they called Suraa.
Suraa means that which infuses Sur or music into life. What more it was a rejuvenating drink that had no adverse effect on the body. However later cheaper drinks were invented which worked similarly in making one tension free, but were harmful to the body. This drink was known as Madira much like the alcoholic drinks of today.
It is a known fact that anything in excess proves harmful. Addiction to drinks not only destroys the health of a person but also his career as well as family and social life. Studies have revealed that almost every addict wishes to get rid of the evil habit. He vows to give up again and again but drinks so weaken the will power that it becomes hard for him to keep his promise. In fact addiction is like being enslaved by drinks which every addict very much realises.
No human likes to be a slave. But an addict has not the necessary will power to get free. However if by some method, hypnotism being one, a powerful thought is implanted in his mind it becomes very easy for him to be free.
Another such means is Mantra Sadhana which the addict could use to get rid of his habit. If unwilling to try it some other person could also do the Sadhana on his behalf with the same results.
However it is not claimed that a person shall change overnight through the use of this Mantra. The basis of this method is a personís sub-conscience and Mantra is a powerful device which frees the sub-conscience of all such shackles. Hence Mantra works subtly to remove all craving for drinks from the addicts sub-conscience.
For freedom from addiction the ancient texts prescribe Anukoolan Prayog. The very special aspect of this powerful Sadhana is that in case the addict himself is reluctant to try it someone can do it on his behalf.
In the night of any Friday or Sunday place an Anukoolan Yantra in a copper plate and seated before it chant just one round of the following Mantra with a red coral rosary.
||| Om Gloum Sarva Saakshee Praann Aatmane Namah Gloum Om |||
Do this daily for the next 11 days. Thereafter drop the rosary in a pond and make the addict wear the Yantra around his neck for a month. If the person is unwilling tie the Yantra around his photograph and place it in some safe place. A month later drop the Yantra too in a river. This ritual enhances the will power of the addict and helps him to get rid of the habit forever.
Many small rituals have also been popular in India specially from the times of Nath Yogis like Guru Gorakhnath who devised very simple methods and Mantras in simple language which everyone could use. But the drawback with these rituals is that their effect many times is not long lasting. Still one such ritual is being reproduced here.
On a Friday take a Peepal (holy fig) leaf. On it put a pinch each of black sesame seeds and vermilion. Light an oil lamp and chant thus continuously for 30 minutes.
||| Devaa Ho Devaa Peeraa Ho Peeraa Laanguliyaa Ke Naath Anjaniyaa Ke Beeraa |||
After this tie the leaf with some cloth (handkerchief etc.) which the addict uses and the same night throw it in some isolated place away from home.
