Mysteries of Life

How does synchronicity happen in people who are close to each other?

Transcript: If there are two people close to each other, let's say there are two people who love each other. Now, it may so happen, at a given moment if one person is thinking of a certain thought the other person is also thinking of the same thought. See one person is picking a number which is three, the other person is also picking number three because certain cohesiveness can easily happen with life. Not only...

... with human beings, it can even happen with other creatures. It can happen with trees, it can happen with other animals. Among trees and animals also this is very much there, much more than human beings. It is very little among human beings because there is too much of intellectual thought in the human being. In the other animals, there is not so much thought so their synchronicity is way better than that of human beings. Because they experience life chemically, or by smell. So because of that there is a much more cohesive synchronicity among other creatures. For example, if a group of wild elephants come and start grazing on a particular species of trees. Within 20 minutes, all the other trees in that region belonging to that species, their leaf will go bitter and they'll turn mildly poisonous. Because they've communicated, we're being eaten up, you do something. They will all turn bitter. The elephants know about it. So because the elephants know about it, they will graze quickly in one place and then they will not even bother to graze the next tree and the next tree because they know they would have turned bitter and they will go far away and again start eating. So, even among trees, there is such synchronicity. If human beings hit a pitch among themselves, good for them. But don't give too much significance to it because then you will start imagining a whole lot of things, which are unnecessary. But is their synchronicity with life? Of course. Otherwise so many things wouldn't happen. There are lots of studies which clearly show this. And in the yogic system we call this Samskriti. What Samskriti means is, there is something called as, you know, learning because of the atmosphere. You're not being actually taught anything. Just because a certain family has certain skills, even the children born in that family just, almost like they're born with those skills, they just adapt. It is just in the air somewhere, the skill. They just pick it up. They have made studies of various people and animals, mice. They have noticed that this is possible that learning can just happen out of contact. So there is synchronicity with life otherwise life would not exist. But it should not be overdone in our minds, that's all.

Did you know – Your mind records everything – even in sleep

Transcript: See, you may be sleeping. There are many experiments like this, I won't go into the detail. Even when you're sleeping, you're fast asleep you don't know. I will speak in a language that you do not know, one or ten sentences. Actually we can hypnotize you. After many months or years, we can make you say those sentences in a language that you do not know. You perceive it at a time when you are fast asleep,...

... it is possible to do that. So I am saying if you walk from this place to that place, there may be 25 different kinds of smells. You may not notice it consciously, only if it's very acute either it is very bad or very good, you may notice it. Otherwise you don't notice it. But, in the sensory system all that is recorded. So without knowing why, without actually mentally or intellectually articulating it, you just don't like to go to certain places. Maybe it's the smell, maybe it's the vision, maybe it's the sounds, maybe it's just the energy there. Whatever it is, your four dimensions of karma - physical, mental, emotional, and energetic karma - is always building an elaborate and spectacular web for you. This web is not to trap you. This web is to make life automatic. So that many things you don't have to think, just like that you can do it because it's in your karmic memory. But unfortunately, because people are getting so identified with many things that they do and they start choosing what is good and what is bad. The moment you say this is good, you will develop certain affinity for it. The moment you say this is bad, you will develop certain aversion for it. Both in affinity and aversion, you will get stuck. Now you built an elaborate web but you got stuck in your own web, this is the fate of karma for most people. Karma is the most dynamic way to exist. It simply, literally means you are the maker of your life. For you to be the maker of your life, without your neurological system functioning to your commands, you will never be the maker of your life. You will always be an accidental life. So if you move away from being an accidental life, the people who are experiencing unnecessary levels of anxiety and fear and things on a daily basis. A whole lot of medical professionals are going about saying, these are normal things, you're anxious it's normal. Even I am also anxious. This is not the way to make a human being. A human being is capable of being above this. We are considered as human beings. We did not use the word being for any other creature. We don't call an elephant an elephant being, a tiger a tiger being, an ant an ant being or something like this. We only called humans as beings because you are capable of being. That means, you are capable of conscious existence. That means you are capable of using every faculty that you have the way you want, not in reaction to what happens around you, but by conscious response.

What is death? | Sadhguru in Conversation with Prasoon Joshi | #4

Is being reborn a curse? | Sadhguru in Conversation with Prasoon Joshi | #3

Synopsis: On one hand we say that, you know, this is just a change of clothes. But why do people glorify death so much when they come to Kashi? Why do we need so many rituals around death? Second thing is, what is this ‘moksha’? What is ‘mukti’? Isn’t it against life? Re-birth, everything. Isn’t it that we are glorifying death far too much? And ultimate death in Kashi,...

The unbelievable power of imagination

Transcript: Tantra is willing to use the mind in a certain way. Tantric processes need elaborate visualization. Elaborate. Very sophisticated levels of visualization to a point where it manifests. To make mental process just like a physical process is what tantra is trying to do. To make imagination so strong that after some time, it is like physical. You actually create a ghost or you create a god. Both are possible....

... Both are possible, any kind of form you want, you can actually create it, manifest it, and make it walk. You know, like I was probably at that time, first standard means I was five, six. Six, seven I think. Second, third standard I must have been. And I have a cousin brother who's a no good fellow. So that time, in my mind I'm, you know, like if I'm sitting like this, I can be engaged in my mind for hours on end without any communication with anybody. Because I'm setting up all kinds of things. So I loved Mysore zoos so much, I want to have my own zoo. So I designed my own zoo. I didn't call it a zoo, it was a world by itself where animals were not locked as I wanted them. They were all over the place. Lots of animals and of course, I had a rhinoceros. So this fellow, you know one day something, he was with me and I told him, do you want to see my pet animals? He said, yeah. So I just kind of took him in. I just started talking to him and I sat with him and I told him, see this is it. Can you see this? Can you see this? Can you see this? See this one. Every day he wants to go. A couple of times I allowed because he had something that I wanted. After that he has nothing but he wants to go every day. And every day I have to sit with him and take him in. He got addicted to it. I am saying, it can become so real.

Is Ganga water really special? Myth or reality?

Transcript: This would have been the argument about 10 years ago, that people would say water is water. How can one water be different from another? If water is cleaned off impurities, all water is same. This would have been the argument 10 years ago, but not anymore. Modern science is clearly saying that depending upon what the water has been in touch with, accordingly it behaves differently. This is an established...

show more...
... fact now because water has memory. Now, when we say Ganga jal, why it's been important is, it is flowing through certain lands. It is flowing through certain terrain which has a certain impact. And it is not for one or two generations, for hundreds of generations people have been doing spiritual sadhana and they have been in touch with this water. The quality of that is there in the water. Sunderlal Bahuguna went about proving this to people. Nothing much happened unfortunately. But his own health got transformed tremendously, just living on the Ganga bank. Now, is this just emotion? No. But at the same time, is the water what it used to be before in Ganga? No, because the water that you're drinking today is held in a dam in two, three different places and one dam which holds it there for a long period of time and then let out. It is not the same thing anymore unfortunately. This is one thing we should have not done. If you want electricity, there are so many other ways to do it. This is one thing we should have not done because Ganga had a special quality. Now we put a dam across this, in Himalayas, which is absolutely unnecessary. So I think it was a sacrilege that we put a dam on Ganga for electricity. We could have generated it in so many different ways. Well it is the necessity of the people. On the planes, we do it. But that one river, which is the consciousness of this country, we could have left it alone. Most of the water that's coming in Ganga river today flows through tunnels, it's going through turbines and then coming. So I cannot assure you that it's the same quality now, but still whether you believe or you don't believe, if you touch the water you will see it's very different. Because I've trekked in Himalayas for 27 years. Continuously, 27 years I tekked, every year I went back. Many times I have seen, just a glass of water I drink, I don't have to eat anything. Whole day I'm walking with just one glass of water. You drink a stomach full of water, it just keeps you going. That won't happen anywhere else. If you go to the upper regions, if you go towards, you know, Gomukh and those areas, the water is definitely special. As it comes down with all these turbines and stuff, it's not the same. But still it is different from what you would find elsewhere. So this is not an emotional aspect, there is a scientific basis to it. Unfortunately, we are not maintaining that atmosphere. We are destroying the atmosphere and expect the water to be same. It won't be after some time.

The mystical Koorma Nadi – key to experience life beyond body

Transcript: So this breath, or what conducts the breath, in yoga we call this the Koorma Nadi. You know what's Koorma? Not kurma. No I saw some tongues. Koorma means a turtle or a tortoise. An amphibious creature, it's in the water but it can also venture out. So you can become an amphibious creature if you master this Koorma Nadi. That means you're in the body but you can be little outside the physical nature...

show more...
... because this is your desire. Your desire is not to leave the physical for good. You want to be rooted in the physical but you want to have a taste of what is beyond. This is human desire, always. So Koorma Nadi, this breath is referred to as Koorma Nadi because if you use it properly, you can become like an amphibious creature. That you can be in the body but you can venture outside. This is like a rope. Let's say we pull out your breath right now. If I take away your breath, what will happen? You and your body will fall apart. Right now in your experience, you are the body sitting here. But this rice and chinta taku and gomakura, everything is gathered up here and sitting here. Yes or no? Yes? It's food that you've eaten. Is this an accumulation? Do you understand this is an accumulation? What you accumulate can be yours, can never ever be you, isn't it? Whatever you accumulate can be yours, can never ever be you. So the moment, if I pull the breath away, then you and what you have gathered will fall apart. You and your body will fall apart. Or in other words it's the breath or the Koorma Nadi which ties you and your body together. When we say Koorma Nadi, we're not just talking about the passage of air. Right now you're incapable of experiencing the breath. In the sense, see right now if you watch, you think you're watching the breath? No. You're only noticing the sensations caused by the passage of breath. You're not capable of knowing the breath itself. So the breath, or what sets up this pattern, what directs this pattern, that we are calling as Koorma Nadi. If you have some mastery over that, you become an amphibious creature. That is, you are rooted in the physical but you can venture out. If this much freedom arises in human life, suddenly you know there is another possibility. That there is something beyond physical nature. Whatever you are going through within this physical cocoon is not everything. You know, on a completely different dimension of life. If this one thing you know, if you have a moment of experience beyond your physicality, death is not an issue, isn't it?

How to have an out of body experience?

Transcript: See, most of the people, I know that a lot of stuff going on here. In United States everybody is doing astral journeys. It's just hallucination. Okay?

See, what is being referred to, unfortunately everything becomes ridiculous when all kinds of people start handling it. What is being referred to as astral is, there...

... are five kinds of bodies. Physical body, mental body, energy body, etheric body, and bliss body. These are five dimensions of the body. What is being referred to as astral body is, leaving the physical body, mental body, energy body, and the bliss body intact. And just allowing the etheric body to float around. That means you can conduct your activity here because your physical body, mental body, energy body is intact. But just allowing the etheric body to go, that's a certain kind of mastery. You can't just psych yourself into it. It needs enormous sadhana for a person to do that. Now, leaving the body when we say, we are just allowing the pranic body to move out, which is much simpler. It is a much simpler thing to do and it is more concrete thing. Compared to etheric body, pranic body is physical. It's more physical kind of presence. It's energy but it's a physical energy. Etheric is a transitory energy, it is neither physical nor beyond. It is a transition. Bliss body is totally beyond the physical. So getting the pranic body out and putting it back is easy and it's a much stronger experience because a physical part of you goes out and gets back. Etheric body needs much more sadhana because that is not even in your experience, it is not something that you can touch unless you're in a certain level of sadhana and intensity within yourself. But every street corner they are doing astral travel these days. That's just hallucination. See these things were done for a certain purpose. It's called Parakaya Pravesa. There have been schools which have been fundamentally focused towards this in India. Simply for entertainment, it's not worth exploring those things because it takes enormous effort to get mastery of all those things. And in the end what? What do you achieve? It is of no spiritual consequence.

It is a much simpler thing to do and it is more concrete thing. Compared to etheric body, pranic body is physical. It's more physical kind of presence. It's energy but it's a physical energy. Etheric is a transitory energy, it is neither physical nor beyond. It is a transition. Bliss body is totally beyond the physical. So getting the pranic body out and putting it back is easy and it's a much stronger experience because a physical part of you goes out and gets back. Etheric body needs much more sadhana because that is not even in your experience, it is not something that you can touch unless you're in a certain level of sadhana and intensity within yourself. But every street corner they are doing astral travel these days. That's just hallucination. See these things were done for a certain purpose. It's called Parakaya Pravesa. There have been schools which have been fundamentally focused towards this in India. Simply for entertainment, it's not worth exploring those things because it takes enormous effort to get mastery of all those things. And in the end what? What do you achieve? It is of no spiritual consequence.

Do your genes rule you? Is it possible to break the genetic grip?

Transcript: So the reason why an individual human being may feel trapped in their own limited ways is simply because they are super identified with their memory. So one of the first steps in yoga is always this, that you start identifying with your ignorance never with your knowledge. Because your knowledge, it doesn't matter how vast it is, it is minuscule in this cosmos. But our ignorance is boundless. So to...

show more...
... blow the maximum bubble that you want, first and foremost thing is you do not identify with your knowledge. That means you do not identify with your accumulated memory. Accumulated memory, on a superficial level, may be just what I learnt. But on a deeper level, it is my genetics, it is my evolutionary memory, it is all the different dimensions of memory. So one fundamental thing we do, which is something, which would be very interesting for doctors like you to study is, we do certain things with people so they'll become free from their genetic memory as far as possible. Except for the physiological factors, we want them to be released from their parentage. This is the purpose. The entire Eastern cultures were focused on this. Now it's all messed up, people have forgotten this. Otherwise one thing is, we are always seeing how to distance ourselves from the genetic memory because we saw that if you are identified with your genetic memory, you will just be a replay of your parents life. You will not be a fresh life. If you want to be a genuinely fresh possibility, you have to distance yourself. There are many types of processes through which we distance ourselves from genetic memory. You must see this, it's so dramatic. In the sense, in 24 hours' time, the human being changes completely. The very way they think, feel, understand, and perceive life. With some of them, even their facial features will change. Suddenly they look different within 24 hours' time. The change is so dramatic. So what do you do? Like him, I also delink. For a different purpose but, it's in a way alienating from the genetic memory so that your functionality is not limited to your genetics. That you are not a copy of the parents who produced you. Yes, they have given your body, they have nurtured you to a certain adulthood, after that their business is done. Now your business is to become a totally new potential of life. That's what it is. But this will not happen. You will see this happening with people. When they were 16, 18, they're very rebellious about how they want to be. But you watch the same people after they're 45, they're behaving just like their parents. They walk like them, sit like them, talk like them, everything coming back, catching up with them. Because the genetic memory overpowers the initial desire and exuberance of youth. Once it begins to receive, you will see you start behaving just like your parents. Because the genetic memory overpowers you.

When does the soul enter the body?

Transcript: As life does not engage with the body just like that. It happens as a process. When a woman or a mother conceives, two little cells coming together then become some meatball, literally. But this meatball will become a life. It is somewhere between 40-48 days after conception that the life process enters. I don't know what the medical opinion is. Any doctors here? Okay. Okay. Alright. I'm saying this...

show more...
... from my personal experience. It's 40-48 days, that's the space where you enter. There are some lives which enter later. Suppose, see this is something a woman or a mother would feel if we train her a little bit. If she sees that a life entered beyond 48 days, then you're delivering somebody truly special. Because this life will take time to settle. Some phenomenal is on the way. You have heard, somebody sees you know, Gautama's mother and this man says, you're going to deliver a phenomenal being. Somebody looks at Yashoda and says to the mother, you're delivering a phenomenal being. This is simply because when you notice after 48 days of conception, still life has not entered but enters a little later than that, this means you are expecting a phenomenal being to arrive. Why it is so, if I go into the intricacies, it'll take you somewhere. But normal life enters somewhere between 40-48 days. Now after this, for some reason, after all womb is a manufacturing unit of this body. For some reason, if the body did not form itself appropriately for that life, or for any life, then the life chooses to exit before its delivered. So this is a stillborn baby. Or sometimes, because of whatever compulsions, a mother may choose to abort the child. That is another form of thing. But in these things, the engagement with the body for this life truly begins somewhere approximately between 84-90 days. It is where really life gets engaged. Till then it's foraging. It is looking if this is suitable, if this womb is a right place. This is not a conscious thing. This is an unconscious. Tendency wise, it is seeing if it matches. By tendencies. The appropriate word for this is, traditionally we call this vasanas. Depending upon the vasana, you're looking for an appropriate body. So, though it is partially engaged, it can exit before 90 days. Between 84-90 days, the life gets properly engaged. From then on, it's a proper baby. From then on it's a proper life.

How does the soul enter the body?

Transcript: If you have a newborn baby in your home, you would see a certain part of the skull is not formed. Have you noticed this? So the child has to be handled gently. That part is just skin, there is no bone. So this part in the yogic terminology is referred to as Brahmarandhra. Randhra means a passage. Like a small hole, or a tunnel, or a passage. So this is known as Brahmarandhra. So this is the space in...

show more...
... the body through which life descends into the fetus. Because life has descended into the fetus and life keeps its options open. Whether this body is capable of sustaining it or not, it keeps the options open. That much awareness is there in the life process. So it keeps that trap door open till the last minute. It wants to keep it open just in case it finds the body unsuitable for its existence, it will leave. And it does not want to leave from any other passage in the body, it wants to leave the way it came. A good guest always comes through the front door and goes out through the front door. If he comes through the front door and goes out through the back door that means your house is swept clean. So he wants to go out to the same door so he keeps it open till the last minute. He wants to keep his choices. There are any number of, probably if there are doctors or obstetricians you would know, there any number of cases where, by all medical parameters the fetus is healthy, everything is fine. But for some reason a stillbirth happens. Simply because a life within is still choosing if it finds the wrong kind of body is happening. Life has its own karmic substance. And the fetus has the karma of the parents. So it has made its choice, 90% of the time it is correct. Or more, it is correct. Sometimes it is conscious that it could make a wrong choice. So if a being enters into this particular fetus and finds it unsuitable as it evolves to become a baby, then it leaves. That is why one door is kept open. So this is the Brahmarandhra.

The significance of geometric perfection – the impact of building design

Transcript: In the physical world, the most important aspect is geometric perfection. So geometry is very important. In the yogic sciences, the entire yogice sciences on the physical level, is just about aligning your geometry, your individual geometry to the cosmic geomtry so that, at some point, there is no difference between you and the cosmos. A machine, let's say an engine, let's say a car engine. If we say...

show more...
... it is well engineered, essentially we are saying it's geometrically perfect. Yes or on? It is geometrically so perfect, there is least amount of friction. The same goes for this. If it is geometrically perfect, there is least amount of friction. If there is least amount of friction, there is very little wear and tear in terms of life. So architecture is dwellings and usable buildings that we build. In some way, in some way they must find their place with the rest of the creation. I think we've lost this completely simply because we answer liberty with material. Once steel and concrete came, we thought we can build like this, we can build like this, we can build like this. Whichever way we want because of the strength of the material. Doing things with just sheer force, is all right sometimes for agility. But if you do everything like that, your life will become ugly. Not only the building, your life will become ugly because you're doing things with force. Life is beautiful when we can do things with minimum force and maximum impact. Yes or no? Anything that we do, we do it with minimum force but with maximum impact, then life feels aesthetic and beautiful. If you exert maximum force and minimum impact, that's a crude way to live. So our architecture has taken to this mode simply because we found material, where the strength of the material is such we can do absurd shapes and still make them stand. Something which has no right to stand up geometrically is standing up simply because of the strength of the material. If we withdraw from that excitement of finding new material, to more sensible geometry in the world, well, you will see world will feel much better. People will be much healthier, physically and mentally if they live in such buildings. There'll be many other benefits. Above all, you will cause minimum disturbance to everything around you.

Can thoughts alter reality? Is mentalism possible?

Transcript: Can human mind do things outside? Of course. Of course it can. Today if I utter this word, I'm sure there's a whole lot of misunderstanding because this comes from elsewhere. This is what tantra means. Tantra does not mean unbridled promiscuity as Americans have projected it. Tantra means technology. Technology means when, those times when we did not have any external instruments of technology, we...

... realized the highest grade of technology is here. And to exercise this in many different ways. Now if we want to see outside the door, we need a periscope. Now somebody found a way to look beyond without a periscope. Using your mind beyond the realm of your body. Right now mind is functioning within the realm of your body. You want to use it there. It is possible to do that, it's not not possible. It's just that all kinds of wild and absurd things are believed. If you trim those things, in many ways, knowingly or unknowingly, many of you are using this. You create what you want in the world when you really want it. In a way it's simply your focus which makes those things happen. Maybe it is not as tangible as it's in a cinema but every one of you, to some extent you're doing, isn't it? How effectively do you do it depends on, there are many things. If I say things that happen around me, they're too fairy tailish. I wouldn't believe such nonsense if anybody told me, so I won't tell you because I don't want you to believe or disbelieve those things. But every day people around me witness things which they think is nothing short of a miracle, but there's no miracle. See if you use any thought. This is, well he was asking how do we do it in the beginning. Suppose you generate a thought. Have you noticed this? Suppose you generate a thought and then you invest your emotion in this thought, suddenly the thought becomes boom. Yes or no? Right now I generate a thought, oh she's such a wonderful person. But now I invest my emotion into the thought. Now suddenly you are not just another person to me you are something else to me. Is it reality or no? Just because you invested your emotion into your thought, now there is a next thing. If you invest your life energies into it consciously, suddenly this will become something else altogether. Suddenly you become like, life is a play.

This is, well he was asking how do we do it in the beginning. Suppose you generate a thought. Have you noticed this? Suppose you generate a thought and then you invest your emotion in this thought, suddenly the thought becomes boom. Yes or no? Right now I generate a thought, oh she's such a wonderful person. But now I invest my emotion into the thought. Now suddenly you are not just another person to me you are something else to me. Is it reality or no? Just because you invested your emotion into your thought, now there is a next thing. If you invest your life energies into it consciously, suddenly this will become something else altogether. Suddenly you become like, life is a play.

How does deja vu happen? Is it real or just imagination

Transcript: So what's deja vu? It feels like you go to some place, or you see somebody, or some situation, it looks like you've already been there, or you've already known this, or known this person, or thing, or experience, or whatever. 90% of the time it could be just a psychological process. Your mind has so many compartments, most of them have not been opened up. Most of them. Do you know people become schizophrenic...

... and there have been people who have over 30 different personalities. Do you know? Over 30 personalities, who play 30 personalities full scale, with total detail, without any hassle. Not just 30, if you want you can play 3 million. Because the mind is so elaborate. If you open up all, if you want to play 3 million roles, you can play 3 million roles. But it's happening as a disease so it's a problem. If it was happening consciously, there was no problem, isn't it? And many people are playing roles consciously too, isn't it? So there are many, many, many spaces in the head that you don't know. One thing with your mind is, everything that you have perceived, everything. Even if you perceived it unconsciously, it is still there. You're just walking on the street, you're driving through the streets at 70-80 miles per hour. Most of it you think you don't even notice it consciously but everything that the camera of the eye sees, it captures and it's stored forever. It may not be consciously there but it's all there. The same goes for all the five senses. Every sound that you heard, every smell that you smelled, every taste that you've tasted and everything that you have touched and felt, it's all recorded and kept. And a large part of it is unconscious. Because there is so much information inside, it could match up with almost anything that you see in the world. And it could make, if you're gravitating towards something, the mind can create this illusion that you've already been there because it has all the information needed to create a scene like that. It has everything in itself to do it. So I would say 90% of the time it's a psychological process. But there might have been, sometimes, a few people, might have experienced this that they went to a place and it's almost like everything about it they know. That is a real deja vu. But I would like to keep that percentage to 2% of the reality. Another 8% maybe out of control, mental reactions to certain things. But in 2% of the cases it may be true. Is there such a thing? Yes, there is. But most of the time, I would say 98% of the time I would advise, you discount it. You just discount it as a psychological process otherwise you will see, once you start believing in it, you will see it will start happening to you everywhere. That means you're really going off control.

The magical last 40 seconds of life – A doorway to liberation

Transcript: Last 40 seconds, many lifetimes of accumulated karma will play out in fast forward. Last 40 seconds of one's life, if one is either conscious or if he is in a consecrated space. This will distinctly happen to every human being. For whatever reason one may be dying.

... that moment, these 40 seconds only. If you lived a life of ignorance, if you lived a life of unawareness, lifetimes of unawareness, these 40 seconds if you can maintain some sense of awareness. He said, all the many accumulated lifetimes of karma, you will drop it. You will go through an intense phase for 40 seconds only and you will be clean and you dissolve. Essentially spirituality means putting your life in fast forward. You may suffer much more because everything is happening at a fast pace. What you would have stretched for 10 years, is happening let's say in one month. So the amount of intensity of suffering that you go through is big. There may be moments of ecstasy and joy but there is so much suffering because things are happening rapidly within you. So at least towards the end of your life you want to hasten the process.

What happens after death? Are there ghosts

Transcript: When somebody dies, we say this person is no more. That's not true. That person is no more the way you know them, but they still very much exist. See when you say I'm a human being, the outermost periphery is the physical body. In yoga, we look at everything as body because it is easier for you to understand that way. So we see the body has five dimensions or five sheets. Physical body is known as...

show more...
... annamay kosha. Annamay kosha means, anna means the food. This is food body. Next one is called manomay kosha. That means it's the mental body. The third one is called pranamay kosha, which means the energy body. Physical body, mental body, energy body, all these three dimensions are physical. They are physical existence. Physical body is very gross, mental body is subtler, energy body is even subtler, but all these three are physical. Now, the next two dimensions are called vignanamay kosha and anandamay kosha. Vignanamay kosha is non-physical but related to the physical. It is like a transient state. Anandamay kosha is completely non-physical. And for all this, the karmic structure is the strings which hold these things together. So when a person dies, obviously the physical body is something that you borrowed from the earth. This body is just earth, isn't it? Physical body will fall apart. The mental body and the pranic body, depending upon the strength of your karma, goes on. If the karmic structure is very intense, unfinished, then it has to finish it. If the karma has become weak because it has run its course, then it very easily finds another body. If it has to find another body, the intensity of the structure should come down, it should become passive. If it is very intense, it cannot find. It has to hang. So this is what you are referring to as ghosts. Somebody is dead, his karmic structure is still intense because it's not over. Now he needs much more time to find another body, he still exists. And the more intense his karmic structure is, the more visible he becomes, are more experientially available to people. There are innumerable such beings all around you. Whether you know it or you don't know it. But most of them you won't feel because their karma is dissipated. They're just waiting for more dissipation before they find another body. Now if you dismantle the karmic structure 100%, now you merge with the existence. This is what is referred to as mukti mahasamadhi. In Hindu tradition it is referred to as mukti. In yogic tradition it is referred to as mahasamadhi. In the Buddhist way it is called as mahaparinirvana. Generally in English we are saying liberation. Liberation means becoming free from the very process of life and birth and death.

Right now, let's say somebody is doing some black magic to me. But I am not receptive to it. You are sitting here, you may get it. It is not necessary it must be aimed at you. If you're susceptible at a certain moment, you will get it. So many, many times people may go through bad patches and things like that. Won't describe this, I don't want to create fear in your mind. But many times we have seen people being influenced by certain things not knowing what's happening, blaming all kinds of things. Not knowing what exactly is happening with themselves. Wearing a simple mala gives a certain level of protection for that person.

What is AURA? How can I see someone’s Aura

Transcript: Aura is that of many kinds. One can carry from a pitch black aura to a pure white aura. Between these two, there are a million shades. Essentially, the physical, mental, emotional, and energy status of who you are right now, in a certain way, is represented by your aura. Or it's visible through the aura. Every substance on the planet has a certain field of energy around it. Or what you see as substance...

show more...
... on the planet is actually energy. It's a scientific fact. The whole existence is energy. One part of the energy has manifested itself into a certain level of reverberation which makes it a physical form. Another part of the energy does not manifest itself into your physical form but it still has a form. So that form, which is not yet physical or refuses to become physical but still maintains a form, that's an aura. Or that's being called an aura. What you call as aura is even more superficial than the skin because it's even further out. So it may have certain, if one has the necessary insight, may have certain, give you certain access to the nature of the person. But you're only looking at the psychological, emotional, and physical structure of the human being. But aura is not even skin deep. So it's not worth spending time on it. If you become conscious of the core, the surface may be just visible to you. But you trying to see and read people's auras is a stupid thing to do. You'll waste your life trying to do such things. If you're conscious, if your perception is enhanced, you may see things.

Do I have free will or Is my life predestined – A crash course on Karma

Transcript: Q: I want to know about how much of our life is governed by karma and how much is our free will? Can you change what you did yesterday? Sadhguru: You cannot change that. But, what you make out of it today, that you can change. That is always in your hands. Always and always. It's in your hands. It is by your thought, by your emotion, and your action. This is how...

Yesterday's karma, you cannot change. But this moment's karma is in your hands. This moment's karma could be a karma of freedom or of bondage. If you handle this moment in a certain way, you will be free from everything that was yesterday. If you do not handle it that way, yesterday will rule you today. This is also your karma. This is also your. See, please do not understand karma as some kind of punishment and reward. It's not like that. It is just that everything that you touch with your mind, with your emotion, with your body, a bit of it sticks to you. The residual action is remaining with you. Yesterday, whatever you did, is it not there in your memory? Is it not there in your memory? Is it not influencing what you do today? Yesterday what you thought, is it there in your memory? Is it not influencing your thought and action today? Yesterday what you felt in your emotions, is it not there in your memory? Memory is not just mental memory, memory is on many different levels. It is in your body, it's in your chemistry, it's in your energy. In many different back up systems are there for your energy. For your memory. So this memory is acting itself out. But, this moment, if you wish to be conscious, this memory, you can use it whichever way you want. You can look back on your life and laugh at all the stupid things that you did. You can look back on your life and cry, why did I do all these stupid things? Or you can look back on your life and learn that, okay, I did all these stupid things yesterday. What is the smart thing that I can do today? Same karma. Yesterday's karma is same karma. But this moment's karma can be different depending upon how consciously you act this moment, isn't it? This moment's karma can be either karma of sweetness or bitterness. Yesterday might have been sweetness or bitterness, you cannot change that. Can you change what you did yesterday? You cannot change that. But, what you make out of it today, that you can change. That is always in your hands. Always and always. It's in your hands.

Is inception possible? Can someone plant thoughts into you?

Transcript: Can somebody plant a thought? Definitely. Definitely, yes. If you're talking about someone consciously wanting to plant a thought in you, is that possible? Very much possible. But you shouldn't get into this mode. Because every time you do something wrong, you will think somebody planted this in my mind. Even if you let somebody plant it in your head, it is still your doing, isn't it? In fact, we can...

... plant a whole philosophy into you, if you want. Why just a thought? A whole series of thought, a complex series of thought we can plant into your head. But, there are different ways of planting a thought. There are dark ways of doing it. The dark ways of doing it involves various dark arts through which they will plant negative thoughts in your head. Where you will work for your own destruction. So if you're talking about negative thoughts being implanted into you, all you have to do is bring some simple meditation or something where your system gets organized in such a way that these things cannot affect you. Or you must carry something with you which will create a certain cocoon of energies around you where these things cannot affect you. There are various ways of preventing somebody else influencing your thought. There are straight ways of doing it. There are other ways of doing it, where a thought is not planted. You are made to think in a certain way, purely for your well-being. This needs to be done. Otherwise, you will just scatter yourself all over the place and spend your life without any purpose. Without getting anywhere.

Every cell in your body is sensitive

Transcript: Because the entire body is capable of this, I must tell you my experience. Once I, you know, like we had a major success in some business venture when I was doing this. So I was always exposed to nature wherever possible. I've been trekking, motorcycling, all this. But my partner is a nice city boy so we decided that we will go to a place where there was a reservoir, like a dam and there's a big lake...

show more...
... and there are small, reasonable-sized hills. We went there and we were all swimming. After swimming I was still in my swimming trunks, I thought let me climb the hill. The summer month's pretty dry so I went up the hill. Now I'm, sometimes I wonder these days wherever I go, somebody's carrying a bottle of water. At that time I rode through the day and night, I never had a water bottle with me. We just managed just like that. So I went up the hill. As I went in the summer heat, bare bodied, I was sweating heavily. But, you know I have a problem of turning back halfway. So I want to go all the way up and then come down. I went up and as I was beginning to come down, I started feeling that I was suffocating with my tongue kind of bloating up. I was dehydrating so much that my tongue was becoming like a block in my breathing and I really started struggling. I badly needed at least a few drops of water. I tried to lick my own sweat but it didn't help. When I thought I'm going to kind of literally lose my consciousness, like I'm going to faint. Then I just sat there with my eyes closed for some time. Then I realized my entire body, you know like all the hair on my hands and legs are all going this way. It's not like goosebumps. Goosebumps means this will rise this way, this will rise this way. I just saw that all the hair pointing this way and I just knew there's water somewhere here and I just went in search of it. I went into a small, beneath a rock outcrop, like a small cave. A cave not for a human being, maybe rabbits and rats and those kind of animals could go and stay there, that kind of cave. Just about that much. There was a small pool of water. Maybe it was a rabbit's urine, or it was rain water. I don't know what the hell it was, it didn't matter. I just put my face into it and drank up the whole thing including the mud and everything. I sat there for a while recovered from that and came down. Why I'm saying this is, when you really need something like food or water, you will see every cell in the body will long for it. If you pay attention, you will see thirst is not just in your mouth it's everywhere.

I just saw that all the hair pointing this way and I just knew there's water somewhere here and I just went in search of it. I went into a small, beneath a rock outcrop, like a small cave. A cave not for a human being, maybe rabbits and rats and those kind of animals could go and stay there, that kind of cave. Just about that much. There was a small pool of water. Maybe it was a rabbit's urine, or it was rain water. I don't know what the hell it was, it didn't matter. I just put my face into it and drank up the whole thing including the mud and everything. I sat there for a while recovered from that and came down. Why I'm saying this is, when you really need something like food or water, you will see every cell in the body will long for it. If you pay attention, you will see thirst is not just in your mouth it's everywhere.

Did you know – Your mind can run 14 parallel tracks at the same time!

Transcript: This will be very hard for your viewers to digest, but let them have little indigestion. Let them sit up and think about this. As I sit here, I'm talking to you, am I talking sensibly? Yes. Do I look focused? Very. Nobody has ever seen me unfocused on anything, but at the same time I have at least 12-14 tracks running in my mind all the time. So I may be talking to you, but I'm sorting out many, many...

... things. That means, in a way, compared to a whole lot of people, if they think one thing, they can't think the other thing, I have 14 people in one. I could increase the range if I want, I'm just a little lazy. So I don't want to spread it. If little more striving, I can spread it much more. But, you know, here and there I enjoy a little bit of laziness. I thought 12-14 tracks, it's enough and they're running well. So at the same time I'll be designing something, I'll be creating something, I'll be preparing something, everything will be happening at the same time. This is what being human means. Unfortunately, most people utter the word human only with reference to the limitations of being human. Very rarely anybody says I am human referring to the immensity of being human. They are always saying, oh I am only human. So this is what I want them to realize, this is what Adiyogi means. 112 different ways through which you can find solutions of transformation. Solutions or means for transformation. For your immediate needs and for your ultimate needs, both. This dimension of science, where he is talking about the entire nuts and bolts of human mechanism and the nuts and bolts of cosmic mechanism, and how these two things will fit into each other, absolutely without any friction, how you can be a part of the cosmos, how the cosmos can be a part of you. This is not logically correct but, when the Saptarishis asked him, what is the nature of this existence, where does it begin, where does it end, how big is it? He laughed and he said I can pack the entire cosmos into a mustard seed. So then they asked if you can pack everything into a mustard seed, is it big, is it small, what is its nature, what's its composition, how can it be big and small at the same time? By then he was bored with them. Then he just said, like this, five, that there are just five elements. If these five elements, if you understand, if you grasp these five elements, you grasp the entire creation. The physical world is finished with five elements - earth, water, fire, air, and space. If you know these things, you know everything. With these five things, how much mischief, just see. Can you believe with five elements, just with five ingredients, how many things have been created in this cosmos? So he just said this, that's all you need to get. So that's why we called him Bhutaswara, the master of five elements.

The extraordinary powers of Sadhguru’s grandmother

Transcript: You know my great grandmother. People used to say, she's a devil of a woman. When I saw her, she was over 100 years of age. They called her a devil of a woman not because she ever did any harm to anybody, but she had a laugh. If she laughed, the entire street shook. Like that she laughed. She lived to be 113, 113 years of age. She was married into a very rich family, a big land-holding family. When...

show more...
... she was 68 years of age, after her husband had died, she left the family, went out and built a small temple for herself. She did not install a god, she installed herself in the temple. She'll do her own thing there, her own type of worship, her own type of everything. And, she can tell you anything. When she's there, sitting in the temple, she can just tell you about anything in the world. You know the history of Europe, where spiritual process was so widespread and how systematically it was uprooted and thrown out when they wanted to establish an organized religion. So all those millions of witches who were burned, are just those women who exhibited certain qualities which did not fit into the logic of that society. My great grandmother, for sure, would have been burned as a witch. In India, they wouldn't burn but they were afraid of her laughter. She was definitely a witch. So, we need witches. We need witches in the world, we need women who are more capable than their logic. We need men also like that. We need human beings who are capable of perceiving, understanding, experiencing life beyond the horrible limitations of logic.

Could Hanuman really become huge in size at will? Can Shamans change their form?

Transcript: About a certain person becoming small, or big, or flying, or doing something else, is that a possibility? Very much a possibility. Very much a reality. It was very much prevalent in this country, in this culture, but it was looked down upon. But it was looked up elsewhere, particularly in the native American cultures. There is a whole tradition of Shamanism where it is, even today, there's any amount...

... of talk about how a native American Shaman becomes an eagle, becomes a fly, becomes a wolf, transforms himself into some other form and gets there, and all this. So these are not just stories, it is very much a possibility that one can transform his form if he wishes to. There is a panel in the Dhyanalinga, where somebody transformed himself into a form that was relevant to someone else. Have you noticed? You did not? So about people taking on the forms that they wish, according to the convenience, is not a new thing, or it's not an unheard of thing. Almost in every part of the world it is there. Particularly, it is being publicized in a big way, big way about the North American and South American Shamans these days. About Shamans becoming eagle, and becoming wolf. These two forms are very common for them, that was not unheard of here, but it was looked down upon in this culture. There, it is being looked up to because this is not spirituality, this is a cult.

Listen to the birds for a better weather forecast than meteorologist

Transcript: One thing that we can know from birds, probably better than any meteorological instruments is, if we listen to them carefully, we would know the meteorological conditions, or the weather patterns very well. Many studies have observed this, on the banks of Ganga and also Narmada river, certain birds, which nest very close to the water, by looking at where they build the nest at what height, people know...

show more...
... whether this year there is going to be a flood or not. I'm saying, the birds build this nest at least four months before monsoons. But, they will build the nest much lower if the rains are not going to be too heavy and there's not going to be any flood. But if there is going to be a flood, they will build it way higher up. Just by observing this, traditionally people have always known, this year it's going to flood, this year it's not going to flood. So obviously before any of the normal, what our instruments can read in terms of meteorological conditions before water vapour, temperature, other things manifest, already there are science in nature, which a bird is able to see. Probably among human beings, one creature who pays maximum attention to meteorological conditions, is an aviator. A farmer to some extent, but much more an aviator because one who wants to fly is always watching out for the weather, because that will decide whether you're going to fly or not. Whether you will fly all the way to another world or you're going to land in this world. A lot depends on the weather. So birds being avians, probably they have learned to pay attention to nature in terms of meteorological conditions like nobody else. There are many other aspects one knows about the migratory patterns of the birds. Where in distinctly, they know the weather patterns, otherwise they cannot make this flight, long distance flights across continents. So if one wants to know whether definitely listening to birds would be great, maybe not all of them, those who soar in the sky, those who depend very much on rising in the sky.

Is time and space an illusion or do they really exists?

Transcript: Suppose you're here, but you don't have a body. Whether this satsang is two hours, or two millenials, would it matter to you? Only because you have a body, two hours. If you did not have a body, this is for 2,000 years, what's the problem? So only because of your physicality, time exists. Isn't it? Only because you have a physical structure, time exists in your experience. If there was no physical...

... body, what is time to you? The same goes for space also. If you had no body, what size dress would you need? Minus? Only because there's a body, space, isn't it? If you did not have a body, how many people could we have for satsang in this hall? Is there a limit, I'm asking? No. So only because you're identified with your physical nature, time and space is a reality for you. Otherwise, both wouldn't exist. So, is it a concept? It is not a concept. It is a reality of existence. Can we experience it? Anything that's real can be experienced. Even falsehood can be experienced, you know this? It's happening. In so many ways it's happening, isn't it? Things which are not true, are true in your mind. There's a classic example. In the yogic this thing, in the yogasutra, Patanjali himself uses the example. Suppose we take a rope and throw it on you, and say, "Snake." Suddenly, everything that would happen to you, if a snake had landed upon you, will happen to you. Though, it is just an inanimate rope. You may even die of a heart attack. Yes. Even falsehood, that which does not exist, you can experience. Such is the beauty of creation. Even that which does not exist, you can experience. Why would you be denied the ability to experience that which does exist? You definitely can. It is just that you have to disengage a little bit from your personal entertainment, that is, that which does not exist is dominating right now. Things that don't exist in the universe are happening in your mind, and they're going about as if it's a reality. So, because of your engagement with that, this question comes up, "Can we experience reality?" Reality is the only thing you can experience, isn't it? But, creation is so generous, it is willing to allow you experience even that which does not exist. Fantastic, isn't it?

How can I know about my past life?

Transcript: See, for me personally, the last three lives, it's the same work, same place. We're in the same place now once again. To some extent, same people. There are situations where, many times, I end up calling them by their old names. We have taken them to those places. A past life experience where they clearly experienced what it is and they're very much with us and they know it is so. This is not somebody's...

... suggestion, this is not a story told to them. This is something that's a living experience within themselves. But again I insist, don't believe all this. Because, by believing, you'll destroy your possibilities. Oh, I know there are lives. Finished you are. The moment you make a conclusion, you've destroyed all search within you, isn't it? Yes? The moment you make a conclusion, there is no thing to search. I don't know, you can't live with an I don't know, isn't it? Yes? You cannot live with an I don't know. I don't know is uncomfortable right now but it's a tremendous possibility because it starts the search. Once a deep I don't know enters you, you will see your whole life energy becomes such. It is not just an intellectual question once the I don't know sinks into you very deeply. All that we have done in the 6 days is to bring you to a state where you don't know anything and you're happy about it. Yes? You have not been stuck with knowledge in these 6 days. Slowly, slowly you're coming to a state where you really don't know anything. If this I don't know sinks deep into you, you will see your very life energies becomes a seeking, a searching. Then, truth cannot be hidden from you. If your seeking is intense, how can anybody hide it for you, because it's within you. Nobody can take it away from you. Right now, the seeking is not intense enough. Spirituality is still entertainment, certain days flirtish. It's not going to work that way. When it sinks deep, something else happens.

Does Astrology Work?

Transcript: Astrology. What is it that you're trying to do? You're trying to look at the positions of the planet and make certain predictions, right? I want you to understand. Most of the time, people who make good predictions, or people who, you know, tell you about the past very clearly, or some people tell you tomorrow what's going to happen very clearly, they're not doing it looking at the planets. They're...

show more...
... doing it looking at you. A certain intuitiveness is there in a certain person. He says. You know instead of teaching this yoga, if I sit and Chennai and just predict people's future, I will tell you in the next 10 years exactly what will happen in your life. Within 3 days, I will have a reputation and half the Chennai will be standing in queue. Very easily I can do that. By predicting somebody's future, you don't alter the quality of his life in any way. You don't bring any kind of true well-being. It is just, you know, you're getting him into more and more ignorance. Isn't it? Now if you have the power to know your tomorrow, you will only become more ignorant, more egoistic, more stupid, more harmful. You go by the normal rules. It's okay, you don't have to know what's tomorrow. You're made like this right now, the quality of your life and your own way of being as such, if you know tomorrow today, you will not participate in today. Isn't it? Yes or no? Suppose I tell you, whatever you do, you're not going to die. You will do irresponsible things in the world. Or if I tell you, tomorrow morning anyway you will die. Now you won't participate in today. Isn't it? So, you should not know the future. It's not necessary for you to know the future. The planets definitely are large objects, so they have certain vibrations, they have some influences on everything around them. If they're close to this planet, yes. Do you know, on poornami and amavasya days, full moon day and new moon day days, people who are little mentally disturbed, or imbalanced, become much more imbalanced. Yes? Even the ocean is going crazy, isn't it? Do you all go crazy? Twice a month? If you're much more established, wherever any planet goes , you don't go crazy. That's all. The purpose of your life, the destiny of your life, is fixed by you. And nothing else but you. Yes, everything has an influence but what you make out of that influence is still yours, isn't it? But if you're going to be pushed around by inanimate objects, yes you can be pushed around. To that extent it is true. I'm saying, when the divine is functioning within you, when the creator is functioning within you, why are you allowing inanimate things to influence your life? If you allow this dimension to flower in you, you will see life happens fantastic. Let the stars go anywhere, let the planets go anywhere, you will go only where you want to go. You want to go where you want to go? Or you want to be pushed around by inanimate objects? You must decide that.

Now if you have the power to know your tomorrow, you will only become more ignorant, more egoistic, more stupid, more harmful. You go by the normal rules. It's okay, you don't have to know what's tomorrow. You're made like this right now, the quality of your life and your own way of being as such, if you know tomorrow today, you will not participate in today. Isn't it? Yes or no? Suppose I tell you, whatever you do, you're not going to die. You will do irresponsible things in the world. Or if I tell you, tomorrow morning anyway you will die. Now you won't participate in today. Isn't it? So, you should not know the future. It's not necessary for you to know the future. The planets definitely are large objects, so they have certain vibrations, they have some influences on everything around them. If they're close to this planet, yes. Do you know, on poornami and amavasya days, full moon day and new moon day days, people who are little mentally disturbed, or imbalanced, become much more imbalanced. Yes? Even the ocean is going crazy, isn't it? Do you all go crazy? Twice a month? If you're much more established, wherever any planet goes , you don't go crazy. That's all. The purpose of your life, the destiny of your life, is fixed by you. And nothing else but you. Yes, everything has an influence but what you make out of that influence is still yours, isn't it? But if you're going to be pushed around by inanimate objects, yes you can be pushed around. To that extent it is true. I'm saying, when the divine is functioning within you, when the creator is functioning within you, why are you allowing inanimate things to influence your life? If you allow this dimension to flower in you, you will see life happens fantastic. Let the stars go anywhere, let the planets go anywhere, you will go only where you want to go. You want to go where you want to go? Or you want to be pushed around by inanimate objects? You must decide that.

Without numbers would life be more beautiful?

Transcript: Sadhguru, one question I keep thinking about is, if there were no numbers in life. We didn't know the concept of numbers, would I be more in rhythm with the nature in life? Namaskaram Prasoon. I know you're a magician of words. You don't like numbers. Well, once you say, me and you, well there are two. Or even if you say, myself, then there is one. Once there is one, then ten, hundred, thousand, million,...

show more...
... is just a natural consequence of that. So the moment you say, me, you already created a number. The number is not only about how old are you, what time is it, when did I sleep, when did I wake up. It's not just about that. You and me itself are two numbers. So myself itself is a number. The only way to be beyond numbers is called a shoonya. Yoga means no number. Why yoga means no number, means the word yoga essentially means union. Which means it is the science of how to obliterate the boundaries of your individuality. Obliterating the boundaries of your individuality means the first basic number, one, that is me, is obliterated. Once you take away one, what is a million, or a billion, or a zillion means nothing. Everything is a zero. So, yoga means obliteration of numbers. Yoga means union. Union means, no you and me, no many. There is just one. But, there is not one, there is none. So this is referred to in many different ways. It's called a shoonya, it is called as shiva, which means, actually, that which is not. That which is not cannot have numbers. Only that which is has numbers. So, numbers are a natural consequence of physical existence. Only when one transcends the physical existence, there is a numberless existence. When we say something is limitless, we're also saying it's numberless. When we say something is boundless, we're also talking about no boundaries. No boundaries means there is no one or two. So numberless existence is possible only when there is an absolute state of yoga or union. That's what we're trying. This is my effort in my life. To take people into that experience of numberlessness. But keep the magic of words going, Prasoon. Magic of numbers is also beautiful in the form of mathematics as magic of words are. So both words and numbers are not two different things because there is one word means there will be many words. There is number one means there wil be many numbers. All this is a consequence of physical manifestation of existence. If one transcends the physical, then we use the most corrupted word, spiritual. What spiritual means is a numberless existence.

What is the significance of number 3?

Transcript: Sadhguru ji pranam. You know, we've been composing music for the last 23 years now. As Shankar, Ehsaan, Loy. One thing that's fascinating me is always in the conept of 3. I see the association of the number 3 with various aspects, like neutron, proton, electron. Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh. And, you now, we are also, three of us composing music. So what is the relevance of 3? What is the importance of 3?...

show more...
... And what is the effect of 3? Namaskaram to the trimurtis of Shankar, Ehsaan, Loy. Well, there are trimurtis, trinethra, trishula, trikala. All these things are evolution of ideas from the fundamental experience of human life. All human experiences rooted in these three things. Our memory belongs to the past, which is called as the bhootkala. Our experience, always, is vartmana or the present. And our imagination and aspirations are always of the future, which is bhavishya. So essentially, human experience of life happens between memory, experience, and imagination. Based on this, many aspects, which spring from these three experiences were crystalized in our culture as 3. Trinethra, trikala, trishula, and you guys, trimurtis. So this fundamental needs to be understood, that all these three dimensions exist in vartaman. All these past and future actually exist now because it's only now that you can remember, it is only now that you can imagine. It's very important all these trikalas are there. The three dimensions, the trishulas are there. And trinethras are there, that is the three dimensions of seeing life and experiencing life is there. And, we are very glad the trimurtis of Shankar, Ehsaan, and Loy are there. Please make some wonderful music. And let's celebrate the trimurtis.

The Power of the triangle. Chakras are in the shape of a triangle

Transcript: Triangle is the basic form in the existence, in many ways. The most integrated form is a triangle. Before all this material came, like, concrete, and steel, and all this tar. Even now, I think in United States, particularly, any home has a triangular roof, isn't it? In India we've all gone for flat roofs. Because they use concrete roofs, and the weather permits a flat roof. So here still almost every...

show more...
... house around has a triangular roof. Why a triangle is, with minimum material, maximum strength comes only from a triangle. If you had to create any other form of the same strength, you would need much more material. Material's strength has to be increased. But in the form of a triangle, with very minimal material, you can get maximum strength. So always, anywhere in the world, if you give them two pieces of wood using earth as a base. You got a dwelling. So this is not just about the dwellings that you build. Even the divine hand, even the hand of the creator chose a triangle to build a basic form within you and outside of you. If you look at any molecular structure, it is a complex assembly of triangles in many ways. Similarly if you look at the human body in a different level, you will see there is something called as an energy body. The energy moves and operates in the body in a certain way. In yoga there's a whole understanding and there is a certain way of experiencing how the energy functions in your system. If you look into this with awareness, if you see the way your system is constructed, you will see the most basic form in your body is a triangle. All the nadis meet in the form of triangles. What we refer to as chakras are actually triangles. The nadis always meet in the form of triangles. We call them chakras because they symbolize movement. So that orange triangle with a circle around it, is the AgnaChakra, which is the chakra of enlightenment and knowledge. Knowing and perception. Because yoga is the science of perception. And if you have seen what are called as yantras. In South India there's lots of yantras. Have you seen? There's SriChakras, and that kind of thing. Yantra means, it's again an energy form. If you create certain forms, they have certain amount of energy. They can retain certain amount of energy. All the yantras are always built with triangles. They're a complex formation of triangles. Because that is the way the energy system of your body is built. That's the way, in many ways the fundamental aspects of existence, has happened. That's why the triangle.

If you want to open up a person to become your bride or groom, then you put a ring on their finger, on the ring finger. Isn't it? In some way, people open up.

... Of course, now lot of new age people are putting a ring upon their thumb. It's a very wrong thing to do, you will attract certain kinds of energies which you can't deal with. And it also stabilizes the system. If you put metal on the ring finger, it stabilizes the system. There are many many other dimensions, but two put it in a generic way, it is like a remote to open up the dimensions of your own body. Without opening this up, there is no cosmos. Without opening your eyes, there is no world. Isn't it? If your eyes were always closed, there is no world for you. So similarly, without opening up this system, there is no cosmos for you. So the ring finger is not really about the cosmos. It is about this system, the human system, human mechanism. If you open this up, then there is a cosmos. The cosmos has always been there. It is just that you did not open for it. Ring finger, if you know how to use it, which will take a certain amount of whatever. Don't do that in meditations, don't sit like this. It will dissipate your energies in many different ways. Best to use YogaMudra, or open hands. Don't use the ring finger because that will need a completely different kind of instruction and training. If you bring your energy system to a certain way, or to a certain level of vibrance and intensity, then you will know that hands are great instrument. In yoga, we're saying, the ring finger, from here to here, you can control the whole universe. It is everything. This is like the mouse for your computer. Here you can, you can just adjust your system whichever way you want. If you know what to do. Don't go about rubbing this, it won't work like that. If you know what to do with this, this is like the mouse to your computer. You can take it wherever you want. You can just activate your system whichever way you want, just by handling the ring finger. Now, you can make these hands in such a way that if you move it here, something will happen in another part of the world. You can make something happen somewhere else, totally somewhere else. Wherever you want, pinpoint it. Because these hands are the instrument to everything. It's like the control panel to everything.

Will I be reborn? Does rebirth and reincarnation happen?

Transcript: When you say rebirth, you're essentially asking what happens after death. Well, some things you know best only by experience. I'm sure you're not ready for that, nor do I want you to go in that direction. If I tell you there is reincarnation, what is the option that you have? To believe it or disbelieve it. Isn't it? If you believe what I say, you just have a fancy story going for yourself. If you...

... disbelieve it, you have something to deny. Both ways only entertainment will happen. Nothing else will happen. Isn't it? If you really want to know, you must be willing. If you're willing to apply yourself, there is a way to know. In my life it's a living reality. The last three lifetimes for me are in the same place, same work, to some extent same people. Till it becomes a reality in your experience, you should not believe this nonsense. Don't believe anything, don't disbelieve anything. But if you just pay attention to yourself, you can see the body that you carry is something that you slowly accumulated. So the body that you carry is a piece of this planet actually. The mind that you carry is a heap of impressions that you gathered. So what is it that accumulates this heap of food, and heap of information as mind and body. That dimension is beyond birth and rebirth. You may once again, accumulate another body and another mind. But essentially, life as such, is the same thing. So when it comes to life, you must understand there is something called as my body and your body. There is something called as my mind and your mind. But there is no such thing as my life and your life. Life is just a cosmic happening. This is a living cosmos. How much of life you captured will determine how large a life you live. What is the scope and spread of your life will simple depend on how much life you captured within yourself. The entire science of yoga is just about this. How to make this life super enhanced so that the scope and spread of this life is as much as it can be.

Discover the hidden sound within you

Synopsis: Sadhguru says - "Every form has a hidden sound within itself." When you strike something, what one hears is the surface sound. If one knows the hidden sound of any object, you will find a certain access to that form. It was on this understanding, that in the Indian culture, children were given their names. Every time his name is uttered, the sound would open up the person somewhere deep inside.

This means you are falling in sync with it. You are falling in sync with life.

What is Tantra? Are all Guru’s Tantriks? | Sadhguru Wisdom

Synopsis: Sadhguru says, unfortunately today, Tantra is misunderstood as 'unbridled promiscuity'. Tantra means technology, it means certain capability. Tantra actually requires extreme discipline.

Importance of rituals for the dead

When someone dies, we may think they are 'dead', but as far as they are concerned, they just lost their body and along with it all discretion and discerning powers - because now there is no mind.  Every culture has been aware of this – irrespective of where or what religion – when someone is dying, whoever he may be, you must create a pleasant atmosphere. Even if your enemy is dying, at that one moment you do not create unpleasantness for him. 'Kalabhairava Karma' is one such Yogic process to help transition the 'dead' .

What happens after death?

When someone dies, we usually say they are 'No More'. This is not correct, as the person still exists, but not the way we used to know them. In the Yogic wisdom, the body is described as having 5 layers - 3 physical in nature, one transitory and one non-physical in nature. The karmic substance is what keeps one cemented to the physical body. When one dies, the physical body falls apart, but the mental and pranic body go on, depending upon how strong the karmic substance is. Once physical body is lost, the discerning power is completely lost- whatever quality you put in the mind, it will multiply manifold. This is what is referred to as heaven or hell. Heaven or hell are not any geographical locations, but experiential realities that a disembodied life is going through.

Significance of death rituals

The Indian Yogic science has looked at life and death in the most elaborate way. It is from this deep understanding of life that the death rituals evolved.  When death occurs, the life looses the body and along with it the discerning mind. From then on, the disembodied being is living just based on tendencies. The death rituals are meant to ease the transition for the disembodied life and these rituals are meant not only to help the dead  but also important for those around still alive. If the dead are not taken care of properly there could be many problems for the living.

How to accept death gracefully

The word 'Death' instills fear in almost everyone - that's why everyone wants to cling to  life forever, knowing fully well that if there is one certain thing in this life- that is 'Death'. Yet, we do nothing to prepare ourself for this one 'certain' thing. We must learn to accept death gracefully - and that can happen only when one understands that death is not end in itself, but just a transition for this life.

life and death – not two different things

Death is the baseline of life. If you do not understand death, you will never know life, nor can you handle life, because life and death are like inhalation and exhalation. They exist together, inseparably. Spiritual process begins only when you are confronted with death – either your own one or that of someone who is dear to you, someone you thought you could not live without. When death is approaching or when it happens, that is when the question comes up in most people’s minds, “What is this all about? What will happen beyond this?”

Does Sadhguru gets affected by initiation and consecration processes?

While explaining how consecration is different from initiation, Sadhguru unravels some mysticism around what happens to him during these processes. While its easier to do these processes on living beings rather than inanimate objects like halls, but if people do not behave or are upto some mischief, it badly affects Sadhguru. In one instance, he lost his sense of taste and smell for over an year. It is indeed our most fortunate privilege to be blessed with a living Master like him.
