Dear friends all over the world!

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
In 1970 I was possessed by the two

As I went through a lot of depressing-
Exciting, saddening-pleasing, perplexing-
resolving, suffocating-liberating but
learning experiences, the concept of
SUPERLIVING i.e. HOLISTIC HEALTH,
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

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!

core of TOTAL STRESS MANAGEMENT OR
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
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
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 super-
transactions 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
