Heart Disease and Namasmaran
|by Dr. Shriniwas Kashalikar|
About twenty years ago I had sent a working hypothesis (a guesswork or conjecture) to a medical journal. In that hypothesis I had suggested stress as a root cause; in essential or idiopathic hypertension and ischemic heart diseases (apart from many others). By the use of word “stress” I imply mismanagement of stress; as stress is universal and ubiquitous.
The hypothesis was rejected as baseless.
Today I wish to reiterate that hypothesis; in this article so that everyone can read and decide if it makes sense or not.
The hypothesis is:
What is Total Stress Management?
It is a process of continuous evolution in cognition, affect and conation; i.e. perception, feelings and behavior. This is a natural (but not arbitrary) and accentuated blossoming; from inaccuracy and inappropriateness to accuracy and appropriateness; without any regimentalization.
In philosophical and spiritual literature (Jnaneshvari also called Dnyaneshvari) this is called a stepwise process of self realization or krama (stepwise) Yoga. Namasmaran (Jap, Jaap, Jikra, Sumiran, and Simaran i.e. remembering and reorienting to the true self) is acclaimed to be universally and unconditionally helpful in this process. Apart from the study of physiology, pathophysiology, statistical surveys, clinical studies, experimental work; the verification of this hypothesis is essentially through the practice of Namasmaran.
