A wave of compassion arose for these women and for all those who go through similar experiences in their process of self realization and I feel compelled to write a few words.
My own big bang awakening happened around 1998, I shared satsang for some years and then crashed. Outer circumstances plummeted me into a huge deep dark hole. Depression, fear and suicide thoughts became my companions for some years, in which I prayed day and night for help. I had no way to understand what had happened to me.
Was awakening not irreversible? Had it not been real then? The anguish I was facing was often unbearable.
