Stress and police dr. shriniwas kashalikarDocument Transcript
Yesterday and today it has been reported in the
electronic media that; in a check up organized by the
Jain organization and rotary club in Beed in
Maharashtra; over 50 % police were detected to be
suffering from diabetes, hypertension and other diseases
resulting from stressful working conditions.
We tend to be disturbed by such news and start worrying
about. When we start looking for solutions, we come
across, the typical solutions offered and hyped; such as
the practice of yoga, change in life style, regular check up
and so on.
But is this honest? Is this true? Is this fair?
If we are not involved in the mercenary games of
marketing, selling and encashing hathayoga techniques
voraciously; or we are not immersed in exploiting others
through the exotic, individualistic, selfish and tempting
ways of stress management; or if are not naïve/dishonest;
then we would never superstitiously believe that;
individualistic and selfish hathayoga and stress
management techniques are panacea and can replace
holistic perspective, holistic policy making, holistic
planning, holistic administration and actual holistically
working towards holistic health.
If we are honest to ourselves; then we would appreciate
that; inner blossoming is possible only if it goes hand in
hand with suitable or conducive social transformation.
Conversely, the accurate direction of conducive social
transformation; is possible only if we are simultaneously
blossoming from within.
To put it differently; we have to give holistic dimension
(of individual and global blossoming); to the techniques
of yoga or stress management on the one hand; and
quality of being conducive to the inner blossoming; to the
process and steps of social transformation.
If we are against NAMASMARAN, unaware of
NAMASMARAN; or idle and indolent practitioners of
NAMASMARAN; then that we must wake up most
urgently; to realize; that this is possible through the
universal practice of NAMASMARAN.
NAMASMARAN can enhance and catalyze; the actual
evolution of universally beneficial perspective, laws,
policies, administration and functioning through the
inner blossoming and the public understanding,
appreciation of all these; and global mobilization in their
support and implementation!
We are bound to suffer from unbearably malignant,
global and inescapable stress and its ill effects; whether
we are police or otherwise; in absence of enlightened
wisdom of the leaders on the one hand; and absence of
our own growth so as to recognize, appreciate, respect
and follow such enlightened wisdom (possible only if we
wake up to the omnipotence of NAMASMARAN) on the
