Nag Ashwin – Why More Youth Today Are Consuming Alcohol and Drugs?

Excerpt

The survival needs of people are now taken care of - so, naturally people will look elsewhere for involvement. If they don't find anything, they will move towards more pleasure and more intoxication. Another reason is that children are not getting enough attention because both parents are working. Also, this generation does not believe in 'heaven' - so 'morality' which used to work, will not work now. The solution is, to keep children involved in sports and activities that keep them engaged with nature. They must experience the pleasures of the mind, emotion and consciousness - once that happens, then indulging in pleasures of the body will come down. And children should not know affluence till a certain age.

Gautam Gambhir – Whats The Significance Of Standing Up For Our National Anthem?

Excerpt

Most people these days do not participate in Republic Day parade, or attend any flag hoisting event on Independence Day. The current state of the world is such that the largest segment of humanity that can be addressed is a nation. And a nation is not god-given idea. It is people.

Amish Tripathi – How To Deal With The Loss Of a Someone Close To Us?

Excerpt

Grief is about a loss - loss of possession, positions, professions and of course loved ones. If we lose someone to death, then it cannot be replaced - so the grief becomes more profound. Sadhguru says - the way we have defined "who we are" - is based on our possessions, positions and relationships. Relationships should not become an instrument to fill our lives - rather they should come from the basis of our completeness. This needs to be cultivated throughout life - this is what a spiritual process means.

VVS Laxman – Should Kids Have Freedom To Do What They Want?

Excerpt

This is a must read for all the parents. Sadhguru simplifies this complicated problem for all parents, in a way that ones perspective on freedom is completely altered! Instead of raising children, we should allow them to grow. "Freedom" - is not a word that one should utter, and the children should also not get used to this word.

Prasoon Joshi – What Is the Significance Of Numbers In Our Life?

Excerpt

After reading this article, you will look at numbers in a completely different way. "You" and "Me", itself are two numbers - Sadhguru tells us. In fact, he says, the moment you say "me", you have created a number. The word Yoga means to be in union - to obliterate the boundaries of your individuality, that means the first basic number, that is "me" is obliterated. So, numbers are a natural consequence of the physical existence. In some ways, words and numbers are not too different things!

Shankar Mahadevan – What Is The Significance Of The Number Three?

Excerpt

Essentially the human experience of life is happening between bhutakala, vartamana and bhavishya - that is past, present and future.

Col. Rajyavardhan Rathore – Is Over Exposure Of Technology Destroying Youth?

Excerpt

Technology has made our lives easy and comfortable - but we are still complaining about it! The problem is not technology, it is just that people have not prepared themselves for the life they need to handle. Unless you make yourself capable to handle the various realities of today, you will complain. In the early years of life, the focus should be to enhance the life to a higher level of possibility. Once sufficient time is invested in inner development, handling the outside situations will be effortless.

Mouni Roy – Why Are Relationships Becoming Fickle Today?

Excerpt

Relationships can be of many kinds; but these days the word "relationship" largely connotes a body-based relationship. Once the relationship is body-based, usually the excitement about each other's body will die after some time. Once that happens, the relationship starts to fall apart. So you must look at relationships in terms of an expression of joy, and for that to happen you must first become joyful by your own nature. Once your relationship is not need-based, and you are naturally joyful, you can hold wonderful relationships with everyone!

Virender Sehwag – What is the Basis of Caste System in India? Is it Still Relevant?

Excerpt

Virender Sehwag: Namaskaram Sadhguru! I want to know the truth about our Indian caste system. How can we ensure more inclusiveness and equality? Sadhguru: In ancient times, by maintaining a caste system, skills were transmitted from generation to generation. This was needed for the society to function. Today, the transfer of skill does not happen through family - so the caste system has no relevance anymore. Also, some people have started thinking they are superior to others - and terrible things have been done to a few people. Just abolishing the caste system won't work; but there is a way out - through state provided social security.

Excerpt

Ayushmann Khurrana: Namaskaram Sadhguru ji. This is Ayushmann Khurrana.

I firmly believe that both extreme right wing and left wing are dangerous. My political standing is probably the center. So, what do you think is the correct stand? Where should we go from here because we are in a tricky situation right now?

Ranveer Singh – How Do I Get Rid of My Phone Addiction?

Excerpt

Ranveer Singh: Sir, I feel technology is constantly evolving, and I have a feeling that mobile phones have really changed the way we are. They have a huge bearing on pretty much everything. I sometimes wonder whether human beings were ever meant to communicate like this. I could be hanging in a jungle in Africa talking to somebody who is at the North Pole. I can actually see their face! And with that, now comes along social media. It is really changing things. Kids who are eighteen, nineteen now are much more into it. They know how to use these things much better. I was born when there were still landlines, so FaceTime is still a trip for me. So what is your take on mobile phone technology and social media? Is it the new evolution, like this is what human beings were, and now we have a cell phone and that is the extension of us?
