Sadhguru, as we all know, in our society, women are stepping up. They are becoming equal to men by working as well. However, our society is not accepting women.

How to develop an appetite for knowledge?


Pranam Sadhguru. My name is Ashok. In the beginning you mentioned that we can bring chemical balance, if not mental balance, through intellectual and spiritual education. I would just like to mention that years ago, I heard one of your discourses in Sathya Sai International Auditorium. There you gave an example of a guru and a donkey. That was regarding how to develop an appetite for knowledge. Now, here also, if we have to give this intellectual and spiritual education to groups. And we want them to digest it and they should have an appetite for it. So what is the recipe or the formula, so that we develop the appetite in them? They get it and they achieve chemical balance within themselves.

Is education the cause for a varied perception of tolerance and intolerance?


Pranam Sadhguru. I’m Srinavas. Everybody is aware about the debate on tolerance and intolerance. The concept of intolerance is growing mostly among the public or the well-educated, that too from well known institutes. I never find the concept of tolerance and intolerance among the lot like BSF, who are suffering more toughness in life, more controversies, and more difficulties. Is education the cause for this varied perception of tolerance and intolerance? Or is this education wrong?

How to unlearn?


Guruji, how to unlearn? I mean, we have several reactions at our inner level, which are required to be unlearned. Like, when I go home from my office, or from the border, my family members come to know if my day was bad or good. At inner level, how to unlearn reactions?

How to overcome stress?


You had been talking about developing an equanimous mind. That made me think about the daily life of a border person. A border man is under constant stress on the border. His life is constantly in danger, he’s separated from his family, living conditions are harsh, the weather is very unpredictable. So he has been in lots of problems like this. There are a few incidents of suicide also. Normally the border security won’t, but in the armed security forces. The question is, how does one, under the influence of such forces, develop an equanimous mind, or in other words, can you give a couple of tips for the border men on how to overcome stress in their daily life?
