Sadhguru in conversation with Kiran Mazumdar Shaw

Excerpt

Absolutely, well said. And, I see that we are running out of time. But, I want to ask you a final question, before we turn it over to the audience. You talked about technology and we know that technology of course also raises aspirations. And, I remember we grew up at a time when we didn't have phones, we didn't have television, we were very content with small things. We drove around in Ambassador cars, we were lucky if we had a landline. And, if we aspired for a telephone and we got a landline after three years, we were very happy, very content. If we got a Prmier Padmini after the Ambassador, we were very content. But, today things are so different. It's a great transformation that we are seeing in our country. You can choose any model that you want of cars, of smartphones, and yet you see that technology and aspirations are almost proportionate to discontentment. Do you feel that is true? There seems to be this instant gratification. We must have the next best thing.
