NEEDS AND

DESIRES

DR. SHRINIWAS KASHALIKAR


Some of us; advocate indiscriminate suppression of desires; while the others uphold indiscriminate fulfillment of all desires! 70 billion people and innumerable animals and plants; have different instinctual, emotional, intellectual, psychomotor and creative needs. The irresponsible and indiscriminate suppression or gratification of these; has lead to universal stress at all levels in the form of poverty, hunger, deforestation, famines, global heating; on the one hand and corruption, indulgence, addictions, terrorism, persecution, riots and wars; on the other. We should not be obsessed by the idea of destroying the shadripus (six enemies); termed viz. KAMA, KRODHA, MOHA, MAD MATSAR and LOBHA or indiscriminate indulgence in these. We should concede the fact that there ought not to be a regimentalization. The needs have to be differentiated from the desires, whims or fancies. The biological needs; of the fetus, newborn, infants, toddlers, children, youths, pregnant mothers, and the elderly, are variable; and must be optimally fulfilled. The tangible culmination of seeking the truth; is holistic renaissance, superliving or Total Stress Management, i.e. holistic perspective, policies, plans and programs, which aim to optimally fulfill all these needs, while simultaneously promoting the blossoming of the individuals, through incorporation of NAMASMARAN, in all the educational courses; in view of the


fact that it orients us to our true self and sublime duty i.e. SWADHARMA i.e. superliving. In absence of this; both; our “materialism” as well as “spiritualism”; perpetuate pursuits of subsidy, profits, success in examination, promotion; or trance, bliss, ecstasy, moksha, mukti, nirvana; respectively; and we continue to feel incomplete, restless, frustrated, depressed, weak and helpless; in personal and social life; and perpetuate vicious cycle of universal stress.
