Stress and desires dr. shriniwas janardan kashalikar

  1. 1. STRESS AND DESIRES DR. SHRINIWAS KASHALIKAR
  2. 2. Is it appropriate to advocate desirelessness or fulfilling of all desires right from childhood? This is very important question in Total Stress Management i.e. individual and global blossoming. The ultimate state of a self realized soul is called as STHITAPRAJNA. The meaning or purport of this state is not desirelessness; but culmination of all individual desires into the cosmic desire. This is an evolved and buoyant state. This is a dynamically fulfilled state. This is not a state of accepting surrender. This is a sublime, victorious and ecstatic state of fulfilling one’s “real desire” of merging with the cosmic consciousness. In general; many ascetics advocate arbitrary suppression of desires; and
  3. 3. austerity; and the individualists uphold fulfillment of all desires right from childhood! The spiritual, ideological, intellectual, religious and political leaders are likely to be confused and hence divided on this issue. Thus even amongst the honest and well meaning individuals; some may feel genuinely that desirelessness (austerity) is the key; and others may feel equally honestly, that fulfillment of all desires; is the key to global welfare! Both have substance in their opinions. Thus; the newborn babies, infants, toddlers, children, youths and the elderly; while passing through different stages of development contribute to the beautiful and panoramic dynamics of the human civilization. Hence one can not and should not deny the desires of people through their development!
  4. 4. But it is also true that those whose desires were sublimated into the cosmic desire lead the noblest aspects of the core of human civilization! Hence pursuit of fulfillment of desires per se; also; can not be the solution! The best answer to his question is given in the concept of SWADHARMA; as I have explained in my books “Conceptual Stress” and “New Study of Bhagavad Gita”, both available for freed download! NAMASMARAN reorients us to the precise and sublime duty at every stage of development and in every walk of life; and helps us to march joyously and victoriously from the states of enjoying the personal desires; to the state of sublimating them in cosmic desire; by choosing the best in the world for individual and global blossoming.
  5. 5. Hence it is really urgent for the wisdom and leadership of the world; to arrive at a consensus and introduce the study and practice of NAMASMARAN (JAPA, JAAP, JIKRA, remembrance of one’s true self) in all the courses; at all the stages of education and in fact; every walk of life!
