Pradeep B. Deshpande's Message for World Transformation

Recently Professor Pradeep B. Deshpande and his co-author B. D. Kulkarni published an Article entitled "Towards a Science of Consciousness: Hunt of Major Impact Factors" in Journal of Consciousness Exploration & Research (JCER, Deshpande now has also graciously provided 2012 Daily three sets of diagrams which he uses at seminars teaching his Six Sigma method of achieving internal and external excellence:

Pathway to Pure Consciousness at a Glance
Pathway to Excellence of the External [through] Six Sigma
Pathway to Excellence of the Internal Excellence: Process Details

As stated in their Abstract, "[t]he article begins with a proposed definition of pure consciousness that is followed by an explanation of why anyone might aspire to progress towards it, how one might make progress, what obstacles are likely to be encountered, and what the significance of reaching the destination might be. In the six sigma methodology, major impact factors are the vital few causes that determine systems performance; in the present context, the ability to reach the state of pure consciousness. The paper presents a six sigma analysis of the consciousness effort and identifies a major impact factor, possibly for the first time that will render the pursuit of pure consciousness a bit easier."

Citing Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the authors describe self referral pure consciousness, the source of all intelligence, [as] the ultimate reality of life from where creation emerges, from where the administration of life is maintained, and where the physical expression of the universe has its basis. It is said that a person who has achieved pure consciousness is able to manifest both internal and external excellence, thus transforming him/herself.

According to the authors, "human actions are determined by three components of the mindset: (i) The S component – truthfulness, honesty, compassion, evenness of mind - unaffected by success or failure, non-injury, etc., (ii) The R component- Bravery, ambition, ego, greed, etc., and (iii) The T component - lying cheating, causing injury in words or deeds, killing, lethargy, excessive sleep, etc...The mindset components undergo transformation over time leading to rise and decline of societies."

One of the important practical values of this work is that it discusses/teaches "how to raise one’s level of consciousness:" In the context of the S, R, T components, raising the level of consciousness is equivalent to raising the S component and reducing the R and T components. There appear to be two approaches to raise one’s level of consciousness: (i) Conscious Effort – The characteristics of S, R, T components being clear, one could track one’s level of consciousness on a control chart periodically, say once a week. If the desire is genuine, the control chart could be a useful tool to ensure that the level of consciousness is not degraded over time. (ii) Follow a process whose side-effect is a rise in the level of consciousness.

Readers are encouraged to study their work so as to gain valuable insights on how to transform oneself and the World.
