Playfulness – Simple way of Krishna to remove all suffering

Transcript: Simple things that people take up to do in their life, after all for most of the people, 95% of the people in the world, all that they have taken a piece just to earn something for their survival. Procreate, bring up their children, that's it. Just for the small drama that they have picked up for themselves, they wanted it. A little business, or one job, a home, wife, children, husband. This is it....

... To manage this, where they end up. Many of them end up in the insane aslyums too. Just doing the simple job, isn't it so? Yes? They have not taken up the problems of the world, they don't want to be dharmaguptas, wanting to establish dharma in the world. No such great responsibility they have taken up. Just earn their living, survive, procreate, and die. Which every creature on the planet does. For that, see where people are ending up. How many people are ending up total nuts. How many people are halfway down there. Yes? Too many people, isn't it? It is taking an unusually heavy toll. Simple life process. It is not necessary this way, but unfortunately it does go that way for many people. Simply because there is no playfulness in their way of existence. There is no playfulness in the way they live. They're too dead serious. So fundamentally, that's what Mahabharata is. That, there are all types of people. Good people, bad people, outright evil, absolutely virtuous, various types of people. If you look at it, every kind of human being that you can find in any society, they're all there in Mahabharata. The whole range of people. Greedy ones, absolutely selfless ones, fearful ones, brave ones, valiant warriors, cowards. Every kind are there. And they're all being put through a whole intense drama. And you look at each one's experience. It's very different and the way he handles it is very different, and they way he lands up in the end is very different. Through this whole drama, of all the people, Krishna is going through the maximum amount of drama. But untouched. Because he said, "Yogastha Kuru Karmani". That means, first establish yoga and then act. If you act, without establishing yourself in yoga, then your action will become an entanglement, it doesn't matter what you're doing.

Is your happiness going up or down? It is time to take charge of yourself

Transcript: If we had come here as any other creature on this planet, life would be very simple. Eating, sleeping, reproducing, and dying one day. Now we have to do all those things but somehow where you are right now, wherever you may be, is not enough. Isn't it? You want to be little more than what you're right now. If you know only money, maybe you're thinking of little more money. If you know only pleasure,...

... maybe little more pleasure. Power, little more power. Everybody is wanting to be little more than they're right now. The process of desiring is continuously going on. Whether you're going to work, or you're going to the bar, or you're going to the temple, or you're getting married, or you're having children, you're studying in university. All this effort of life, everything was in pursuit of happiness. Is it so? In the last 100 years, with the use of science and technology, we have changed the very face of this planet. Today we have the kind of comforts and conveniences that no other generation could ever even imagine. We are definitely the most comfortable generation ever on this planet. Is it so? But are we also the most joyful generation? So it's not worked. Every creature, from plant to animal to everything, including human beings, have paid an enormous price to create these comforts and conveniences. And we are not even happy. What is the point? We have engineered the world today in many ways, so that it functions better for us. Isn't it? We have done nothing about ourselves. It's time to really look at it, isn't it? In the last 24 hours, how many moments of joy have you earned? When you're 5 years of age, a child, how many moments of joy did you have in 24 hours? The whole equation has gotten to reverse somehow. It doesn't matter where you are, you're sitting in a palace or in heaven, but your inner situation is not good, it doesn't matter. Isn't it? This mind could have been a source of ecstacy but this mind has been a source of misery for most people. Tension, anxiety, depression. Why? You just don't know how to handle it, isn't it? Nobody around you will happen 100% your way, isn't it so? Yes? Nobody happens your way, it's okay. The problem is, this one is not happening your way. That is the problem, isn't it? People have concluded that stress is a part of their life. Stress is not a part of your life, it is just that you do not know how to manage your body. You do not know how to manage your mind. You do not know how to manage your emotions, or your life energies. Everything is happening accidentally. Now I'm talking about creating the right kind of chemistry within you. Where, to be peaceful and blissful is just natural to you.

Being joyful is 100% in your hands

Transcript: We need to understand this. We are experiencing life the way we are experiencing not because that's how life is, because that's how we are. Our experience of life is essentially determined by us, not by what's happening around us. There are situations in the world, family, work, street, many things. Nation, world, all kinds of situations. Whatever happens in the outside situation has a certain amount...

... of impact on our physical lives. Definitely it has, isn't it? But it does not determine the nature of our experience. The nature of our experience simply depends on how we are. Situations, of course, are dependent on million other people. Your life situation right now, living in Kolkata. What every citizen of Kolkata is doing has some impact on your life situations. But it need not have any impact on your experience of life. Because your experience of life is essentially determined by you, you, and you alone. Nobody else but you. If you understand this, that is the basis of Sadhana. You are sitting down with your eyes closed, just to understand experientially that everything that I experience is coming from within me. Pain and pleasure are coming from within you. Joy and misery are coming from within you. Agony and ecsatasy is happening from within you. If you understand this much, then would you choose pain or pleasure? Would you choose joy or misery? Agony or ecstasy? That's all, you know the choice. If you are confused about the choice, then you would need lot of lessons. Your choice is clear for yourself, 100% clear. So when it is so clear, choice is clear, only thing is, your ability to make the choice. That's all you need to enhance. If you did not know what to choose, it would be more complicated. Your choice is 100% clear, only to be able to choose.

Hard to give title to this talk just watch it to know how to be happy

Transcript: Today, just to take very affluent societies because every society is aspiring to be like that. Let's say you take United States, which is the most affluent nation on the planet right now. 70% of US population is on prescription medication. Another 30%, of course, buying it off the back streets. Most affluent nation. Obviously affluence is not working. To be healthful, you need chemicals. To be joyful,...

... you need chemicals. To be peaceful, you need chemicals. To be ecstatic, of course, there is ecstasy. So, I'm not even looking at it morally. It's never a moral issue for me. If 90% of this population right now, is on chemicals, believe me, the next generation that we produce will be a generation which is much less than us. If we produce a next generation less than ourselves, we have committed a crime against humanity. Because the next generation must be at least one step ahead of us. Otherwise we have lost it. So, we are heading towards this rapidly unless we teach individual human beings how to simply sit here and be blissed out. Stoned enough or no? Just look at me. But am I conscious enough? Alert enough? Clear enough? If there was a way to intoxicate yourself without losing your judgement, without losing your awareness, without losing your intelligence, it's a great thing. Intoxication is a fantastic thing. Only problem is it takes away your judgement, it takes away your intelligence, incapacitates you. That is the problem, isnt it? If you know how to manage this, you will be like me, always blissed out. Anybody can say what they want, anybody can do what they want, this is like this only. Because I have not given this priviledge to anybody. That somebody can make me happy, somebody can make me unhappy, somebody can make me miserable. It's very important that neither this way or that way. We listen to everybody because we could be doing something wrong. Hello? Any moment we could be doing something wrong. So we listen to everybody. But what they say will not determine how I am. Never ever. This you must fix.

Joy or misery – you must make your choice today

Transcript: You heard of Lao Tzu? Lao Tzu? Lao Tzu is a celebrated Zen master today. Even then, he gathered a certain number of disciples around him. It is part of the Zen tradition, that when the master, or the Guru is dying, people gather around for a final message. So at the age of 83 or 84, he was passing. So people gathered around him and asked him, 'Master, what is the secret of your joy?' You know, he faced...

show more...
... a lot of extreme situations in his life. He was accused of things that he had never thought of. And he went through troubles. So people asked, you went through so many things, but you were always joyful. What is the secret of your joy? Lao Tzu said, 'Oh! That, it's just that everyday in the morning when I woke up, I used to get a question. The question is, today shall I be joyful or miserable? Till now I just happened to choose joy, that's all.' So, have you made your choice? I'm asking. Everyday in the morning, if a question comes to you. I will come and ask you a question everyday in the morning. Today you are going to be joyful or miserable? What's your choice? You must make this choice everyday. Today I'm going to be joyful. Joy is not a goal by itself, it is just that when you are joyful, you are pleasant to the world. When you are joyful, you are sensible in your head. When you are joyful, you will not do stupid things against yourself. But look at yourself and see. Right now, somebody else, if they determine what should happen, around you, you feel like a slave. But right now, somebody else is determining what should happen within you, is this not slavery? Somebody can decide whether you are happy or unhappy, is this not slavery? Somebody can decide whether you will be a pleasant human being or an unpleasant human being, is this not slavery? What happens within you, somebody else determines. This is the worst form of slavery, isn't it? Isn't it so? It is just that, because everybody is like that it seems to be normal. It is not, it is not normal. Just because everybody is like that it does not become normal. This human being, life around you will not happen, will never happen 100% the way you want it.

Do this before you sleep to become more and more joyful

Transcript: What is well being? When do you really feel well in your life? When do you truly feel well? When you're very happy, you're well.

... We can say happiness is that, that. But in terms of life, your life energies are happening in a more exuberant way than it normally happens. Happiness means your life energies are exuberant. There are many ways of describing happiness. But only those who are happy know what it means to be happy. There is nobody who has not been happy. Everybody has been happy.

If you had done this since you were five years of age, you would have been ecstatic by now. Profit side. You became like this because you never kept accounts. One day you checked, when it became very acute, then you see, you are in a big loss. Everyday, every month, just keep accounts. Am I becoming more joyful or less joyful? There are only two things, how joyful are you? And how much joy do you give to people around you? This you can keep accounts. If you keep accounts of this, people are keeping accounts of their money, as if they are going to carry it with them. The real wealth of life is how joyful you are. How wonderful is your experience of life. Joy is not a goal by itself, but it's a necessary ambience for life. If you don't set this one ambience, then whatever you have, is just going waste.
