MARVELS OF MEDIA Dr. Shriniwas Kashalikar
Life is tremendously influenced through print, electronic and various other forms of media; by many individuals and organizations to serve their purpose. Sometimes this influence has been beneficial and sometimes harmful. If the media assume excessive importance in your life, then the media can prejudice you in one way or another. It can stupefy you with illusions of utopian heavens or dread of unrealistic hells!
This is why sometimes the media appear to be the heroes of the spiritual renaissance and other times they appear to be villains of destruction! The media people and their beneficiaries try to project and market themselves as all powerful heroes of all times! Even the so called intellectual and spiritual leaders (because of their inherent weakness) are subdued by media! You have to understand that the media have to serve you and not
dictate! Then only it is possible to allocate the right position to media which they deserve. By doing this you can (without worshipping and without despising) appreciate the innate marvels of media (which are lost in superficiality and pettiness) and help them blossom along with the whole world! For this inner empowerment of yours; you require to practice NAMASMARAN. You need not believe but you may try and verify!
