What is the role of our biological identity? | Sadhguru at Columbia University | #12

Synopsis: My question is actually also about identity. You’ve spoken about the need or benefit of detaching from a biological identity. And I’m curious, I think there’s a lot of people in the room and this question came up again and again. If somebody wants to act positively in society, there’s an instinct to start from the biological community, from the people that you...

... identify with biologically. And since you’ve spoken about that need to detach from that identity, where do you suggest like, what’s the alternative to starting from that biological community? And maybe I’ve understood you the wrong way.

What’s our role in the world? | Sadhguru at Columbia University | #4

Synopsis: What role can we play, when people aren’t as enlightened as the people in this room? We can’t really make the same connections as you because we do agency. Right, we are people that want to make a difference and are willing to kind of have the courage to, I guess, have compassion or pity, depending on the mood we’re in. How do we do this? Because that’s something...

... I genuinely want to play a big role in, if I can be honest. I think it’s something that I, at least, would like my life’s purpose to do something with that.

How do we bring people together? | Sadhguru at Columbia University | #3

Synopsis: Politics. In America we’re more and more divided than before and quite polarised. For me, this is something that troubles me. As someone who has some less than popular opinion sometimes, I’m conscious of how I’m received. Because of people who are passionate about these identities. How can I and others that share, I guess, my desire to bring people together in...

Sadhguru, what was your first impression of Australia? | Sadhguru in Conversation with Matthew Hayden | #6

What is the spirit of collaboration? | Sadhguru in Conversation with Matthew Hayden | #2

Synopsis: Let’s focus for a second on collaboration, because as an individual, I can take it that the Isha Foundation is something which is now a global movement. So talk to me about the spirit of collaboration. I mean, how you’ve developed, built these organisms like a human body that. You might describe yourself as, maybe a platelet within the human body.

Why is Devi depicted standing on a buffalo?

Are Marriages made in heaven?

Does a perfect companion exists and has God already chosen the 'right' person already for you? People may seek a mate for physical, mental or emotional reasons- but it will be wise to recognise the limitations that exists between relationships and truly understand what 'Love' is. A 'Soul', which is complete and boundless does not need a mate. Sadhguru looks at the whole idea of 'Soulmate', love and why people come together.

What is Vidyarambham?

In the Indian culture, education of a child is always started after a certain process, called 'Vidyarambham'. This is so, so that before a child is empowered, in some way it is brought into the life of the child that he feels a certain responsibility for everything in the existence. This is important, otherwise intelligence will work against humanity. Sadhguru tells us, that it is only because the intelligent people in the world have co-operated, that today we have the most violent ways to destroy humanity, enabling a violent man to kill millions.

Is It ok To Label Someone as Disabled?

Is it not true that everyone is disabled in some or the other aspect of life? Sadhguru says that it is inappropriate for the society to brand anyone. Even people labeled as normal, are they not breaking their brains in some way - calling it as stress or anxiety? We should never call ourselves or others as disabled - just look at each one as unique. No person can claim to have a perfect body or a perfect mind. Regardless of how we turn out physically, nobody should decide how we live within ourselves. If we look at life like that, then nobody is disabled.

Yoga Is a Science

A scientific approach is something which has a systematic approach and is applicable to everyone. Yoga is also a science, and no other science is as largely applicable as yoga is. Yoga is a way to obliterate your boundaries and live an exuberant life. Unfortunately the yoga that people have heard today, is what has rebound from America!

Is There A Conflict Between Karma And Inclusiveness?

There is no conflict between these two. Karma means residual memory - physical memory, psychological memory, emotional memory and energy memory. By the very nature, memory will always have a boundary. Because there is a boundary, if you want to expand, it becomes a limitation. So, you must loosen it up and bring inclusiveness into your system. Nature is anyway inclusive, so you just become aware of that.

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.

How To Let Go of Judgments

Don't make judgement in the first place! A judgement is an assumption, you are making it up. You must understand that every life is a unique life. To judge means, you think you know. Sadhguru says - "Just know that you are a bloody fool who does not even know the nature of your own existence. This is the reality of a human being. To know that “I am stupid,” takes a lot of intelligence. The difference between an intelligent person and a fool is; an intelligent person knows that he is a fool, but a fool does not know that he is a fool".

Equality Vs Equal Opportunity

Every human being has different capabilities. Today, we don't use the term 'handicapped', and refer them as special children, or special people. Sadhguru says - "So, “handicap” is a very relative term. Physical and mental activity are always on different scales for people. But the one thing that society can do is to, as far as possible, create equal opportunities". Equality by itself is a foolish idea. We can not and should not make everyone equal.
