BLOSSOMING TOGETHER DR. SHRINIWAS KASHALIKAR
Dear friends all over the world! Namaskar! [This means salute implying high regards and good will] As a regular reader of wikipedia, I feel that it is one of the most beautiful things; that has happened to mankind. I am sure it would aid in global unity and welfare of mankind! In other words, it would aid blossoming of one and all! Besides Wikipedia, I am also extremely appreciative of the efforts of Wikihow, Wikianswers and scribd where I contribute; and the cosmic wisdom guiding them to unite the world through dialogue and understanding and realize the welfare of one and all! The
contribution of all these is bound to grow exponentially! In 1970 I was possessed by the two questions: What is the cause of human misery? What could be done to cure it? As I went through a lot of depressingExciting, saddening-pleasing, perplexingresolving, suffocating-liberating but learning experiences, the concept of SUPERLIVING i.e. HOLISTIC HEALTH, TOTAL WELL BEING OR TOTAL STRESS MANAGEMENT emerged and around forty five books [In Marathi, Hindi and English] and hundreds of articles got penned down.
The essence of this concept is liberation and well being; of one and all i.e. realizing the universal unity of hearts, souls, conscience; and its sublime expression. In tune with this concept, most of my articles and books are made available for sharing with the world; for free download on www.superliving.net and www.scribd.com I have been teaching graduate and post graduate medical students for last 31 years and conducting stress management workshops for not only medical consultants but all sections of society!
The practice and propagation of
NAMASMARAN form the core of TOTAL STRESS MANAGEMENT OR SUPERLIVING.
BUT WHAT IS NAMASMARAN? Namasmaran means; remembering the name of God, Guru, great souls; such as prophets and holy objects such as planets and stars. It may be remembered silently, loudly, along with music, dance, along with breathing, in group or alone, either with counting by rosary (called SMARANI or JAPAMALA) or without counting. The traditions vary from region to region and from religion to religion. However the universal principle underlying NAMASMARAN is to reorient your
physiological being with your true self. In fact while reorienting with true self you aim to establish and strengthen the bond or connection; between; your physiological being; with your true self. You aim at reunification with yourself! Since remembering your true self is the pinnacle of or culmination of individual consciousness, and individual consciousness is the culmination of every activity in life, remembering any name of God or Guru (any symbol of your true self) is equivalent to opening the final common pathway for the individual consciousness associated with every possible activity to get funneled into or unified with objective or cosmic consciousness. Thus NAMASMARAN is in fact the YOGA of YOGA in the sense that it is the
culmination of consciousness associated with every possible procedure and technique in the yoga that you are familiar with. It is the YOGA of YOGA because it is the culmination of consciousness associated with all the activities in the universe, which it encompasses as well! It is YOGA of YOGA because everybody in the world irrespective of his/her tradition and the beliefs; would eventually, ultimately and naturally reach it it; in the process of liberation. Even so called non believers also would not “miss” the “benefit of remembering the true self through one symbol or another”! Just as NAMASMARAN is YOGA of YOGA it is meditation of meditation also! It is the natural and ultimate climax of every form of meditation. These facts however have to be realized with
persistent practice of NAMSMARAN and not blindly believed or blindly disbelieved with casual approach! In short NAMSMARAN is super-bounty of cosmic consciousness for every individual to realize it (cosmic consciousness)! This is truly a super-bounty because a person who experiences it, rises above mercenary, commercial and even professional and charity planes and manifest supertransactions in his or her life! These are just few observations to give rough idea about what is NAMASMARAN. NAMASMARAN is an ocean of bliss. Its true meaning is beyond description in words and has to b experienced, most preferably, by billions! References:
