  2. 2. The craze of propaganda and hype has stupefied even the wise people! Everybody has begun to feel terribly handicapped and at major loss in absence of propaganda! Businessmen, politicians, entertainers; lawyers, scientists, academicians, philosophers and even spiritual leaders have fallen prey to this addiction of propaganda! The intoxication by the addiction to propaganda is so much that no one can imagine success without propaganda! “Success is not possible without propaganda”; is a major and rampant delusion and the consequence of this delusion is increasing distrust and diffidence in one’s own convictions!
  3. 3. Thus instead of studying, appreciating, experimenting everyone has become a slave of propaganda and prisoner of hollow and bombastic slogans! The propaganda in the form hoardings, placards, and posters, massive advertisements in print and electronic media are governing every one! This unproductive and hence parasitic business has hyped itself so much that every one craves for getting a break in it and takes unfathomable pride for being in it also! This businesses (and such other businesses such as commission agents, bureaucrats etc.) are pivotal in causing/precipitating the global growth of mercenary tendency and global recession!
  4. 4. You have to understand that addiction of propaganda is as bad as any other addiction if not worse and not only does it handicap you, but it degenerates and perverts you! This addiction is like accepting the mastery of your own caricature and meekly following it! This addiction is like respecting and accepting your own vomits as your food! This addiction is like lovingly and passionately eating the skin of the banana and mindlessly throwing away the banana! You have still got a choice; either become a slave of the propaganda and get degenerated and decomposed or triumphantly reach your own essence in freedom and dignity and let the propaganda or fame follow! This option opens up with NAMASMARAN!
  5. 5. 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
  6. 6. 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
  7. 7. 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 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!
  8. 8. 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. DR. SHRINIWAS KASHALIKAR
