Equality of food, money, shelters, education
and so on; has originated from unduly
emotional or gullible set up of minds! This
leads to utopian and endless charity with
Arbitrary imposition of uniform
cultures, uniform clothes, uniform foods,
uniform salaries, uniform curriculums, and so
is born in unwise, sectarian and dictatorial and
hence inhuman trends.
Alternatively, the rampant exploitation,
cheating and every petty and individualistic
activity is obviously; diagonally opposite the
concept of equality!
Equality embodies the holistic vision and
perspective wherefrom manifest the policies,
plans and their execution for developing the
suitable environment for enhancing or
promoting the blossoming of everyone in the
world. But what is this blossoming? This
blossoming is an objective and all encompassing
state that is the core of global civilization!
This requires blossoming of the leaders in
different fields to practice NAMASMARAN!
But engender this, every all over the world, has
to practice NAMSMARAN and make the
environment conducive to such change!
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 consciousness.
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 meditation.
These facts however have to be realized with
persistent practice of NAMSMARAN and not
blindly believed or blindly disbelieved with casual
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.
