SUPERLIVING (TSM) is a victorious, dynamic
and blissful expedition to realize A Grade happiness
i. e. simultaneous individual and universal welfare
i.e. freedom from B, C, D and E grades of petty
“pleasures and pains”.
At this juncture, it is enough to understand that Stress is a
universal interaction comprising sensory stimulation [perception],
homeostatic change [feelings] and responses [behavior] and
SUPERLIVING (TSM) is the simultaneous refinement of the
perceptions, feelings and responses. But these occur during
unconscious state, sleep, dreams and even in embryonic state. This
is why SUPERLIVING (TSM), i.e. watering and blossoming of our
life tree, must be Studied and practiced consciously, voluntarily
and with topmost priority!
Let us not get confused or inhibited; at this juncture; by terms
such as stress signals, questionnaire on stress, eustress and
distress, causes (stressors), effects, underlying mechanisms,
homeostatic machinery, support systems and other relevant
theoretical details of stress and TSM, which are described in my
other books and articles, and begin SUPERLIVING (TSM) stepwise!
Namasmaran with the topmost priority at the time of getting
up and going to bed reminds us of and reunites us with the
fountainhead of vitality or cosmic consciousness and thereby returns
us from self pity or arrogance about our petty physical and
materialistic attributes such as body figure, income etc.; to our
magnanimous true self.
Anulom-vilom, Kapalbhati, and Udgeeth on empty
stomach for at least half an hour a day, is advantageous in many
ways, but most importantly it boosts the zeal and intensity
of Namasmaran! Menstrual cycle, pregnancy, wounds, traveling and
many other situations in day to day life may not permit practice of
these, but we should not get disheartened. The situations will always
be in our stride so far as we adhere to Namasmaran. .
Plenty of (preferably warm) water, immediately after we
get up in the morning sharpens our consciousness by stimulating
the Gastrointestinal Tract receptors. It washes away useless or harmful
material accumulated and facilitates bowel motion. Water facilitates
excretion of waste products by kidneys and skin.
Water gets absorbed and provides the medium for the variety
of chemical reactions in body and preempts the effects of subclinical
dehydration caused by stress.
Clean and pure drinking water should be freely available.
Further, water coolers should be abandoned thus saving health,
electricity and the potters!
Rubbing of palate, gums, undersurface of tongue and
teeth involves activation of huge brain areas associated with these
regions and is an important way of rousing our consciousness when
we get up in morning. It increases blood supply and washes away
the waste products from sinuses, gums, tongue, salivary glands,
and other oral regions and imparts health.
Bath kindles our consciousness and opens new
horizons of life. It washes away the lethargy, lassitude and
melancholy and rejuvenates us. Bath stimulates the sensory
receptors and improves blood circulation to all parts of body.
Cold bath in morning is refreshing; while warm bath in evening
is relaxing and alleviates soreness.
Physical exercise is basically meant for nurturing and
channelizing the vital force in body to instill vigor in the expression
of our globally beneficial perspective and feelings.
Advantages of physical exercise in terms of looks, shape
of body, strength and other physical attributes are secondary. So
we should avoid mad exercise with the hope of some petty physical
We should work out muscles of eyes, face, tongue, neck,
shoulders, arms, forearms, hands, fingers, back, abdomen, anal
sphincter, thighs, legs, feet and toes, with due thought to the nature
of our occupation, daily commuting, our age, other situations such
as pregnancy, delivery, menopause etc. We can avoid monotony
and drudgery, by combining it with Namasmaran or even watching
TV! We must avoid lift (which vitiates the atmosphere by loose and
petty talks and physical crowding) and climb, which is eco-friendly,
inexpensive, free of hassles, saves electricity and also enables us
to practice Namasmaran and Mauna. Walking also has these
Proper policies such as developing parks, gardens, walking
tracks, five days working week, can promote locomotion and reduce
Massage acts on neuromuscular system and calms and
soothes the irritable and disturbed mind. It provides solace and averts
disturbing surges of urges!
It improves blood circulation in almost every nook and corner
of the body.
Foot massage is useful in callosities, corns, scaling, fungal
infections, bruises due to cold, heat, dust, ill fitting shoes, synthetic
shoes, allergens and standing or walking for long time. It ensures
flexibility of small joints and adequate circulation and micro-
circulation in the feet. Foot massage is especially useful in diabetics.
Correction of posture is useful in backache, spondylosis,
tension headache etc. It elevates the disturbed mood, which in turn
alleviates or heals the pain! Correction of posture can facilitate
the free flow of nervous impulses through spinal cord and possibly
boost our conscious evolution! Hence we should sit with our back
and loin touching the back of the seat when we are listening, reading,
writing, talking, walking, eating, praying and travelling!
Survival and fear of death vanish [not easily!] if we learn
that the Sun, is responsible for the light rays passing through us
and the light i.e. life shall continue eternally even if our bodies-
the windows perish!
But since this realization emerges through healthy society
and healthy body, we must learn a skill, technique, art, business
etc., as a means of survival involving decent income nurturing
individual and social health through satisfactory social
Hunger is an instinct of survival in animals, but we have the
freedom to choose the quantity, quality, type, place, maker, provider,
server etc of food; on the basis of its properties conducive to alertness,
buoyancy, composure, decisiveness, courage, love and growth of mind
rather than succumbing to savage craving, predator instinct, taste,
flavor, shape, texture, color and deceptive goals such as ideal body
proportion, skin complexion and heroic success etc.
Home-made preparations containing green leafy vegetables,
fresh fruits, sprouted beans, unpolished food grains are good.
Excessive consumption of any one type of food but
especially strong smelling/tasting and heavy food is bad.
The mental and physical states and affectionate sharing with
others; add to the pleasure and benefits of food. We should eat
together and in a prayerful and grateful attitude. This makes it a yajna
i.e. an act of a highest merit, which reunites us with our objective
blissful consciousness! For making this possible, proper policies,
research, training, practice, production and distribution of food/
agricultural products; are crucial.
We have to appreciate noble aspects of parenthood, family
relations, social commitments, economic conditions, emotional
solace, mutual respect, individual aspirations and marital relationship
inseparably associated with sex. This appreciation must be reflected
in laws, rules, regulations, conventions, literature, art and electronic
and print media and our day to day transactions so that the forces of
carnality and mercenary sexuality inside and outside us; destroying
our peace; can be sublimated into wholesome and profound sexual
relations, cosmic romance and ever enriching fulfillment.
We have to re-explore parental instinct i.e. our love and care
for our children by overcoming misguided compulsions of
individualistic pursuits and indulgence in physical pleasures, which
destroy our instinctual health and happiness! The mothers ought to
practice breast feeding for their own as well as their child’s total health
and safe and private places must be provided for peaceful, serene,
secure and satisfactory practice of breast feeding.
The overall atmosphere, with which we are deeply
habituated is called habitat and our company in the habitat
constitutes the herd! The best way of averting stress related to these;
is employment or self-employment in or around native
places. When we are out of habitat or herd, we can overcome the
stress through SUPERLIVING (TSM), which makes us humble and
stop boasting (about our petty achiev-ements) or grumbling (about
our petty grievances)!
We go on getting enamored and dragged after people,
friends, relatives, careers, money, glamour, power, hobbies,
thoughts, philosophies and so on apparently to complete our
sense of inadequacy and overcome loneliness. As we evolve
practice of homeostasis i.e. our contribution to the policies of holistic
health, holistic medicine and holistic education etc. seem to
provide solutions. But actually we continue to sometimes get
excited and sometimes depressed. We need opening up (with
intoxication) and sharing of the euphoria or agony; with friends!
But later such ‘friends’ and ‘opening up’ boomerang! They start
damaging mind, body and social life! We can ride over all this
The bitterness, discord, dissatisfaction etc. in family life
can be overcome by involvement in common goals and common
missions, which bind us together, by warm bonds.
In the past the highest personal ambition was to stick to
and discharge the duties according to the religious conformities
and the schedules. There were no conflicts of aims and ideas.
Every member shared the enthusiasm, commitment, dedication
in the traditional profession and the religious conventions. Hence
everyone shared and divided pain resulting from mishaps and
shared and multiplied the happiness arising out of festivity and
fulfillment of the commitments. In fact, successful conformity with
the traditions was considered an adorable achievement!
We have only few of those traditions and customs but
not in their original and socially benevolent forms to bind our
families together. Most of us are falling prey to individualistic
pursuits resulting into petty failures or petty successes making
us meek and miserable or mean and maniac. New common goal
of SUPERLIVING (TSM) can bring about SUPER FAMILY LIFE.
The objective of marriage is usually identified merely with
sexual intercourse, reproduction, rearing and luxurious living. This
narrow objective and pleasure therein are never capable of
resolving conflicts in marital life!
We have to understand that the institution of marriage is
a liberating bond that propels us beyond our petty ego and helps
us achieve collective emancipation! With this conviction alone
we can assimilate the sublime richness of sacrifice, tolerance,
forgiveness, service, forbearance inherent in living with our soul-
mate and conquer our carnality, anger, violence, obsessions,
whims, fancies, perversions and even our so called noble
ideologies and ideals coming in the way harmony and happiness.
It is usual experience that birds with same feathers flock
together. But marriages break irrespective of commonality in
every kind of mundane pursuit. Hence we need a common activity
like SUPERLIVING (TSM) which can ensure SUPER MARRIED
Sympathy and Kindness (usually helpless) about
poverty, illiteracy, diseases, usually result in charitable measures
such as donations, subsidy, and reservations; which are palliative
and temporarily useful but they can not destroy the roots of social
suffering. Hence, (though they cannot be discarded at once), we
must appreciate that they can not work on long term basis and
actually counter produce irresponsibility, diffidence, beggary, lack
of initiative, shamelessness, parasitism, hatred, jealousy,
social discord and so on!
So our sympathy and kindness have to be transformed into
wisdom by understanding that educational institutions, which do not
empower the students, teachers and families economically, lead
to almost all social evils and hence have to be CURED! Education
is development of cognitive, affective, psychomotor and
productive domain and lays the seeds of individual liberation
and universal welfare.
The crippling and parasitization caused by present
institutions lead to a vicious cycle of bribing for permission, grant,
land, caste certificates, illegal recruitments, irregularities in
salaries, illegal donations, illegal coaching and starting such new
parasitic ‘power centers’! But this is not all. Unproductive and
unprofessional parasitic education sucking our funds via
government route is the most important cause of child dropouts.
The dropouts who do not get jobs add to the population of cheap
child labor and non-dropouts who continue to get ‘educated’ add
to the population of the arrogant criminals or diffident mental wrecks.
This leads to rat race and ugly politics!
As a result, the interest, initiative and conviction in every
one concerned teachers leading to defeat of the empowering
education and triumph of the corruption and victory of the
trivialization of humanity.
Syllabi and curriculums favoring rote learning, hypokinetic
stress, separation from parents, lack of individual attention, lack
of dialogue and discussions add to overall degeneration.
But even before anything is done by government,
everyone affected by this education system can at least begin to
acquire humility and boldness. They can exercise careful
listening, thinking, questioning, discussion, experimental
verification and acceptance or rejection of whatever is taught or
ordered! Blind obedience or disobedience, blind acceptance or
rejection and blind belief or disbelief need to be completely
discarded (excepting in emergency situations such as war).
There are exceptions but we can observe around and
within us and confirm or rule out the validity of the above
Distress of Gullibility can be overcome if we understand
our actual aptitude, our capacity, penetrate the facades of hype of
the careers and know the true nature of work, risks involved and
good or bad impact on the society. This way we can avoid unfounded
fascination, infatuation, attraction or obsession for any career which
is NOT our real choice and avoid resultant destructive frustration or
bloated arrogance. Every job or business [excepting overtly
destructive ones] has a socially beneficial dimension, awareness
of which leads to involvement, enthusiasm and fulfillment in our
job or business and lack of this wisdom leads to lowliness,
gullibility and temptations. Advertising and media must promote
the globally beneficial products and services to help the
customers or readers or viewers, in their selection. Job
satisfaction also requires cordial relationship, celebrations,
incentives, division of labor befitting the aptitude, accountability,
implementation of constructive suggestions, corrective and deterring
punishments with impartiality
and above all, a goal of liberation of self and welfare of all,
in which the employee and also the employer can blossom together!
Another result of gullibility is either vain hope of progress
through petty concepts of health or total frustration. Holistic health
is living for welfare of self and the world. Hence policies in the every
field such as education, medical education, agriculture, industries;
must be oriented towards holistic health. The readers can clarify
their ideas from my other books and articles.
Shackles of Unfounded asceticism is a problem in
many communities in India. We have to develop zeal and zest to
acquire material prosperity with fair means. Through this we can
overcome corruption, which is actually trivialization or
vulgarization of ourselves, which gets expressed in perspective,
laws, policies, major decisions, regulations, rules, literature, art,
skills, media, advertisements and personal and social goals and
also monetary transactions.
To summarize, SUPERLIVING means going to the very core of
different conceptual frameworks, goals, movements, missions,
beliefs, conventions, traditions, customs, glitter, enticements,
compulsions and even perversions and conquer them. It is neither
a charity measure nor a mercenary venture. Hence participation is
welcome but donations are not. It does not dwell judgmentally,
disproportionately or merely; on individual virtues, vices, abstinences,
indulgences, habits, diet, physical gains, personal benefits, profits,
heaven on earth, dos and don’ts, strokes, patting, relaxation techniques,
recreation, rituals, festivals, sports, music, movies, dramas,
dances, perfumes, cosmetics, ornaments, arts, fashions, quizzes,
and such adjuvant support/pleasure systems.
Ultimately, prioritization, assertion and reinforcement of study,
practice and sharing these concepts (and not mere claims or mere
casual reading) provide solution to pathocracy (governance of
self and universe by perversion) and lead to culmination of
individual freedom into self realization and democracy into
