HARMONY? Dr. Shriniwas Kashalikar
So far as the interests are in conflict, how can you live in harmony? When you are loaded with a variety of personal needs and petty greeds the interests are bound to be in conflicts. When you are slave to the needs and greeds and hence shackled in conflicts, how can you aspire for any harmony? But the next questions are: How to get over the personal needs and petty greeds? Are they not natural?
What harmony is worth, if your needs and greeds are not satisfied? What sense does it make to preach harmony by getting trapped in asceticism and renunciation? The smooth transition from needs, wants and greeds to poise and fulfillment requires more than mere biological maturity and aging. This smooth transition is the hallmark of an evolved and rich culture. In such culture the needs of every living being;
plants, animals, children, senior citizens, handicapped and so on; are taken care of. This is living in harmony and NAMASMARAN makes it possible!
