Stress and law dr. shriniwas kashalikarDocument Transcript
The stress is universal. It is ubiquitous. It is natural. It is
inseparable from life. However; if it is not managed
properly then it becomes detrimental to individual and
global blossoming and even survival. Hence it has to be
Stress has been managed in many ways for millennia.
The ways of stress management have been changing as
the life and the nature of stress have been changing.
Since the nature of life is vast and complex the nature
of stress is also vast and complex. Hence the traditions,
customs, conventions, commandments, decrees, laws,
rules, regulations, administration, etiquettes and
manners; on the one hand; and scientific inventions,
discoveries, artistic creations and other modes of
elevating, exhilarating, entertaining, consoling and
soothing life on the other; have limitations in terms of
stress management (even though they have contributed
tremendously in stress management; in the past)!
All these ways of stress management can come closer
to accuracy and hence achieve greater effectiveness if
they spring from and are coordinated and orchestrated
by ever renewed self realization i.e. cosmic
consciousness, in the new generations!
In fact, self realization i.e. merging with cosmic
consciusness; enables us to express the enlightenment
in every walk of life so that above said coordination,
orchestration and harmonization in every field through
out the world becomes possible. In other words
individual and global stress management (Total Stress
Management) becomes possible.
The way for merging with cosmic consciousness is
It is true that thousands of people are practicing
NAMSMARAN and many of them are merging with
cosmic consciousness and expressing their
enlightenment in various walks of life. But this practice
of NAMASMARAN i.e. process of self realization has
to be universal so that the laws governing the universal
life become conducive to self realization i.e. individual
and global blossoming.
In the field of law, there are; many laws, which are
coercive, restrictive, throttling, suffocating and create
hindrance to individual and global blossoming on one
hand; and many laws conducive to individual and
global blossoming; are grimly missing; on the other!
The laws regarding education, health, agriculture,
industries and so on; should be such; that they enhance
self realization i.e. individual and global blossoming
and dispel the degenerating, debilitating and destructive
forces. For instance:
1. Concept of Self realization (holistic (universal)
perspective, policy making, planning and execution)
2. Concepts of Holistic health Holistic Medicine
3. Productive Domain in Education
4. Plantation of suitable or feasible plants
5. Conviction of the demerits, disadvantages and
dangers of the perspective, policies, planning and
laws and regulations; leading to “individualistic and
consumerist progress” (e.g. unabated felling of trees,
excessive production and marketing of personal
transport vehicles and barbaric and brutal
slaughtering of animals)
must be part of all kinds of education.
Everything other than NAMASMARAN; “marketed
and sold”, “hyped and imposed” and “glorified and
infused”; for “stress management or stress relaxation”;
such as meditation techniques, rituals, equipments,
commodities etc.; are subjective, escapist, sectarian, ad
hoc, superficial and neglect or ridicule the above
mentioned aspects of Total Stress Management and
hence; in the presence of NAMASMARAN they can
be temporarily beneficial (palliative symptomatic)
and in the absence of NAMASMARAN, the prove to
be either counterproductive or useless!
