The strain of a long-term illness can have a tremendous emotional and psychological effect on you. You feel mentally and physically drained. As you struggle to cope with your day to day life, the illness shows no sign of subsiding and living with chronic pain seems unbearable. Even after medication, if your health does not improve, then you begin to contemplate escaping from the illness through chronic pain suicide.
The scientific process of Self Realization (Gnan Vidhi) will free you from the torments of bodily pain thus bringing an end to suicidal ideation. Akram Vignan is a new and modern-day movement which gives us with the correct understanding of ‘Who is the sufferer?’, ‘Who am I?’ and ‘What is my role in all of this?’
The knowledge of the Self (Gnan) provides us with the understanding of why we feel the effects of our worldly life. Until we discover our real identity, we will continue to suffer life after life. We wrongly believe that everyone and every circumstance belongs to us. Consequently, we continue to feel the effects of our wrong conviction whether they are good or bad.
When you attain Self Realization through this process of Gnan Vidhi, the body and the Pure Soul (Atma) are separated. You come into your true form as the Soul. From then on, you subtly begin to understand who is experiencing the pain, the reason for the pain, and how to remain separate from the body during suffering.
‘The Soul exists where the slightest of pain cannot be felt.’ - Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan
The Pure Soul never feels or experiences any form of pain. The Soul only knows and perceives what the body is going through, what it is doing to overcome the pain, and what it is thinking. You will know when the pain has intensified or when it has subsided.
Following the attainment of the knowledge of the Self, the more you apply this science, the greater the experience of the Soul you will have and the more you will be able to remain detached from the body. Any suicidal ideation you might have about ending your bodily suffering will end. Internally, you will continue to have the awareness that this is not my pain, it belongs to the body. Therefore, you will be able to live a life of bliss.
