There are so many satsang people,teachers,awakened,enlightened and so on these days.literally thousands .
My question is this:
Does anyone know if any of these people are suffering from Alzheimers or any of the other forms of dementia?
I ask this in all seriousness, as it is statistically certain that some of these “enlightened” people will start to suffer from it at some stage.
I am interested to know what direction the disease would take in an “enlightened” person.Will they be aware that they dont know what is going on?or will they just drift into that mixed-up dream state and gradual diminishment of identity that goes with the illness,like every other sufferer?
Maybe i could expand the question to: what of meditators who have been or will be struck down with the illness?
And those who have practiced “self-inquiry”
What has happened to them?
Do they fare any differently than non-meditating(“unconscious”)folks to any meditators?
With cancer,it is possible to have a better journey or a “good death”as hospice workers put it,and enlightened people and meditators are reposrted to have managed this.
Is this possible with Alzheimers or the other forms of dementia?
