The root cause of global recession is the individualistic and tubular perspective in different fields, which leads to sectarian and mutually antagonistic development. This development embodies; actually; multiplication and cancerous growth of vested interests, petty pursuits and retrogressive destructive forces in politics, economics, environment etc. It is cancerous because it grows at the cost billions of us in the world; just like cancer, which grows at the cost of trillions of normal body cells!
In present conditions; the production and the capital investment required; revolves around unproductive glamour, wasteful glitter, petty luxuriousness, cheap entertainment and mean achievements; born out of petty perspective. As a result of petty perspective they are glorified by most major players of mass communication!
This is followed by the marketing of useless and/or counterproductive commodities and services, promoted through mutually exploitative marketing; mostly opposing interests of even one another! Undoubtedly; such marketing involves colossal waste.
Hence the industrial growth instead of being conducive to holistic health, races towards mutual decay and soon slows down. To protect the vested interests of the small section from this process public funds are pumped in and the potential customers are further throttled!
Everyone of us; being vulnerable and weak; due to the stupefying influence of totally deceptive glorification of petty and superficial glamour and glitter; gets tempted and driven by the lust for mere personal financial profits (oblivious to the fact that such profits turn against their own sublime nature)! Hence the economy booms for some time due to frantic investments and begins to collapse as the number of consumers keeps reducing to due to deprivation of billions, whose buying power gets desiccated/atrophied! This is why the share prices begin to dwindle.
Since the money pumped in these businesses, whether by governments or investors’, is essentially peoples’ money [which would have been potentially useful for the global development] the common people all over the world suffer maximum, the investors suffer to some extent; because they still have buffering power and the business houses with much greater buffering power; suffer least!
Hence to manage global recession;
- The children have to be introduced to the measures of inner blossoming, such as hymns, prayers and Namasmaran right from the beginning.
- The productive domain must be nurtured and the epidemic of dreadful disease of wasteful learning of unproductive activities must be checked on war footing urgently and seriously.
- The agricultural, horticultural and medicinal herb production must be endowed with proper incentive.
- The production of gas, petrol and diesel driven private vehicles must be drastically reduced. The production of number of trains and buses has to be increased according to the needs.
- These are broad outlines and directions. The details can be worked out by experts in the different fields; with global perspective.
- For having global perspective and overcoming sectarian bias; practice of measures to grow and blossom from within i.e. a mega process of spiritual renaissance i.e. Namsmaran by billions of people all over the world; is urgently required.
What is Namasmaran?
Namasmaran usually embodies; remembering the name of God, Guru, great souls; such as prophets and whatever is considered as holy e.g. planets and stars. It is remembered silently, loudly, along with music, dance, along with breathing, in group or alone. Further, Namasmaran is either counted by some means such as fingers, rosary (called Smarani or Japamala), or electronic counter; or practiced without counting. The traditions vary from region to region and from religion to religion.
However the universal principle underlying Namasmaran is to reorient our physiological and social being; with our true self and establish and strengthen the bond between; our physiological and social being; with our true self; and finally reunification or merger with our true self!
Since individual consciousness is the culmination of every activity in life; and Namasmaran the pinnacle of or culmination of individual consciousness; Namasmaran is actually opening the final common pathway to objective or cosmic consciousness; so that individual consciousness in every possible activity gets funneled into or unified with Him (our true self)!
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 we 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; in the process of liberation. Even so called non believers also would not “miss” the “benefit of Namasmaran as they may remember true self through one symbol or another”!
Just as Namasmaran is Yoga of Yoga it is meditation of meditation also! This is because the natural and ultimate climax of every form of meditation; is remembering true self or merging with cosmic consciousness effortlessly!
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!
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 and has to b experienced, not by one or few persons sporadically; but most preferably, by billions!
The last point is; Namasmaran would certainly enlighten, empower and enable some people; out of those billions practicing Namasmaran; to evolve, guide and consolidate the global conscience and thereby manifest global unity and harmony and justice, through globally benevolent proper policies!
