What is samadhi? | Sadhguru in Conversation with Anupam Kher | #7

How to deal with the new generation? | Sadhguru in Conversation with Anupam Kher | #5

Synopsis: Information does not necessarily translate into knowledge. At all. And they always say this, that’s the way I am. I don’t see my grandfather, even at the age of 84, saying, that’s the way I am. So what is this ‘that’s the way I am’, ‘I’m bored’, ‘dude’, ‘cool’? I think that being bad is being cool. If you say, I’m a good man, he’s a boring...

... man. Breaking news, after every 15 minutes, for millions of channels, is never about good things. It’s only about disaster, rape, swindling of money. We are marketing fear. We are becoming people who are constantly made to feel, suddenly in India also, that we are in a world which is not very, very peaceful, which is a dangerous world. We are becoming, pardon me saying this, like America, where we don’t look at somebody for a little longer. I was in America 2 years back. I was looking at somebody, thinking whether I should ask him the way to my hotel. Because in my hotel there was a mall. So I went into the mall and then I came out, I could not see my hotel. Because I must have got out from somewhere else. So I was looking at somebody, thinking whether I should ask him where my hotel is. He said, what are you staring at? I, being an actor, I said, am I staring at you sir? I’m sorry. I did not know I was staring at you. Poor fellow actually dropped me at my hotel. What my point is, how does one, in these times, retain an amount of innocence? A certain amount of sense of wonder. How does one do that?

How can I become truly happy – Kagiso Rabada

Transcript: Hey Sadhguru. My question is, so many times in society you are often told what should make you happy and in a way we are followers. I wanted to find out your opinion on what should make a person essentially happy. So what is it or what does it mean to be truly happy? Namaskaram Kagi. I was just telling them this is mango season in India and maybe in some parts of Africa also. Now when we go near a...

... mango tree, this is a time when all the young boys and girls are looking. Parrots are also here, they're all looking up for the mangoes. This is the direction we're looking because that's where sweetness is. Suppose you go under the mango tree and start digging, is there any chance of you ever eating a mango I'm asking? Is it possible? So what we need to understand is human experience is caused from within us. No matter what. Joy or misery, agony or ecstasy, pain or pleasure is caused from within us. But, we are trying to fix the world so that we are happy. Nothing in the world will ever happen 100% your way. This one person must happen your way, 100%. If this one happened 100% your way, would you keep yourself blissful or miserable? That's all the question is. I know what's your choice. You're asking this question because as you said, people say this will make you happy, that will make you happy, fix this, fix that, fix that, fix everything. Still it will not happen because you are trying to dig mangoes from the roots, that's not where it comes, it comes up there. So what is within you, if you search for it outside, it's going to be an endless search. This is why we are talking about Inner Engineering. you fix this one. Being joyful is assured. Rest of the life, we have to do to the best of our ability. No two human beings can do outside life to the same extent. It's never possible. No two human beings can ever do it the same way, when it comes to the world. But, if you are joyful you will do your best and that's all that matters. In this life, are you're doing your best in every possible way? You can only do that if you're happy and joyful by your own nature.

Part 2: Rapid fire questions by Karan Johar

Transcript: In an imaginary, completely hypothetical situation, if you had a day off with no commitments, no responsibilities, what would you spend the day doing? Oh. A lot of things. This can't be one word. No, it's not one word. See, I have an indiscriminate sense of passion towards everything. There were lots and lots of things I did at one time, but these days time is not allowing me to do that. So, generally...

show more...
... if I have little time all I do is play golf. Because that's safe and within the city and I can get back in time for something else to be done. But if an entire day is left to me, which they have not done for a long time, they have not left it to me. If that happens, I will close my eyes and sit because that is my, the best, the best. I am at my best when I truly have nothing to do. What is one thing you'd like people to remember about you at the end of your life? They must live so wonderfully that they don't even remember me. If you found a way to travel through time, where would you go? I'm kind of done with all those things. Your universe visited already, you have visas for every part of this ecosystem. If we can do some slow fire. Yeah. Because that's a question with many ramifications. This, for example, traveling in the world. We jetted around and now we want to travel to the Mars, we want to travel to another place. And now that's not enough, we want to travel to the past and future. All this longing is again, exploratory in nature. Whether you go on vacation to Maldives or you want to go to Mars, it is fundamentally exploratory. Maybe you're also thinking of relaxation and pleasure and whatever, but essentially it's exploratory. Otherwise why can't you do it here? Something that you want to do, you want to touch another place. This longing is there in the human being only as long as the life that you are remains in a seed form. That is, it did not sprout and blossom. Because your ideas of time and space are essentially, because you're living within the framework of your intellect. If you cross that dimension, then there is no such thing as time and space. Everything is here and now. So, traveling through time, space, no, it means nothing to me.

But if an entire day is left to me, which they have not done for a long time, they have not left it to me. If that happens, I will close my eyes and sit because that is my, the best, the best. I am at my best when I truly have nothing to do. What is one thing you'd like people to remember about you at the end of your life? They must live so wonderfully that they don't even remember me. If you found a way to travel through time, where would you go? I'm kind of done with all those things. Your universe visited already, you have visas for every part of this ecosystem. If we can do some slow fire. Yeah. Because that's a question with many ramifications. This, for example, traveling in the world. We jetted around and now we want to travel to the Mars, we want to travel to another place. And now that's not enough, we want to travel to the past and future. All this longing is again, exploratory in nature. Whether you go on vacation to Maldives or you want to go to Mars, it is fundamentally exploratory. Maybe you're also thinking of relaxation and pleasure and whatever, but essentially it's exploratory. Otherwise why can't you do it here? Something that you want to do, you want to touch another place. This longing is there in the human being only as long as the life that you are remains in a seed form. That is, it did not sprout and blossom. Because your ideas of time and space are essentially, because you're living within the framework of your intellect. If you cross that dimension, then there is no such thing as time and space. Everything is here and now. So, traveling through time, space, no, it means nothing to me.

My biggest weakness is, I love danger. Without danger, I cannot live. I need to do something which keeps me on the edge of being mortal, being alive and dead. I want to walk that line all the time. Everyday I'm stepping on it one way or the other. Is it a weakness? I don't think so. But people think, "Sadhguru, you shouldn't risk your life like this." But if there's no risk, I feel I'm not being, because most of the time in my life, for whatever I'm doing, I don't feel tested. It's only in moments of danger that I feel little tested.

Laxmi Manchu – How Should Our Parents Influence Our Lives

Sadhguru tells us that as per the Yogic Sciences, the parents energetic or karmic influence upon us is only for the first twenty one years of our age. After that we should live in gratitude and love towards them - but not influenced by their patterns. We should not look towards parents nurturing us beyond twenty one years of age.

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

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?

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. So unless the people are inspired into a strong sense of nationhood, the nation can not prosper. The anthem is a way to express and achieve the same.

Vijay Deverakonda – How Can I Be Happy?

Happiness is not something to get or attain. Sadhguru says, when life comes to an ease, then happiness is a natural consequence. Ease means - our bodies are a very complex chemical soup. You can use the technology of Inner Sciences to create whatever kind of chemistry you want within yourself. Then you can be blissful by your own nature - and you will not have to pursue it anymore!

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

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?

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. What is important is to bring into their life a certain sense of responsibility. Once the necessary responsibility is there, freedom will be a natural consequence.

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

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?

Essentially the human experience of life is happening between bhutakala, vartamana and bhavishya - that is past, present and future. But fundamentally, all these exists, only in the present, past as memory and future as imagination. Sadhguru says that it is very important that all these three dimensions exist - trikala, trishula and trinetra; the three dimensions of seeing an experiencing life.

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

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?

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!

Sonakshi Sinha – I’m very emotional! How to Handle Situations?

Sonakshi Sinha asks: Dearest Sadhguru ji, I’m a very emotional person, and I often find it very difficult to emotionally detach myself from a situation that I know is not good for me.

When we live in a society, people will always express their opinions. Now, because of technology, when everyone is expressing themselves on social media - it is no longer that you have to deal with just 4 or 5 opinions, but millions of them!

Ayushmann Khurrana: Namaskaram Sadhguru ji. This is Ayushmann Khurrana. I am a very politically aware person and India is politically in a very vulnerable space because it is a pluralistic society – we have so many cultures, religions, regions, caste, color, creed. 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?

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

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.

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

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?

Father & Son – Why is There Friction?

Family is a basic identity that we are born with. Without the family support, we wouldn't be where we are today, especially because the human being when born, is not ready for survival and needs support. Sadhguru says - "As a child, it is most vital that you are identified with the family. As an adult, you are supposed to grow beyond that". If there are two adult men living in the same space, there is bound to be some friction.
