Mysteries of Life

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.

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...

... 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.

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.

Sadhguru also shares the reason for a huge rise in chemical consumption and substance abuse, and how that is related to 'heavens' collapsing in peoples minds.

Your Past, Present and Future is Written All Over You

In this fascinating blog, Sadhguru de-clutters 'Karma'. Karma is not just what you did and what you did not do, it is the residual memory. Our past, present and future us imprinted all over us!

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.

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

After reading this article, you will look at numbers in a completely different way. "You" and "Me", itself are two numbers - Sadhguru tells us. In fact, he says, the moment you say "me", you have created a number. The word Yoga means to be in union - to obliterate the boundaries of your individuality, that means the first basic number, that is "me" is obliterated. So, numbers are a natural consequence of the physical existence. In some ways, words and numbers are not too different things!

What are The 7 Chakras in Our Body?

There are actually 114 chakras in the body. These are the junction points for the nadis in the human system. Nadis are the channels of praana (life energy). Though a chakra literally means wheel, they are actually triangles. Out of these 114, 2 are outside the body, and only 108 can be worked upon, remaining 4 flower as a result. Sadhguru elaborates on the significance of the number 108. These 112 chakras are arranged in 7 dimensions; it is these 7 dimensions that are referred as the 7 chakras. Chakras, apart from the physical dimension also have a spiritual dimension. Sadhguru elaborates on the qualities of each of the seven chakras; Muladhara, Svadishthana, Manuparaka, Anahata, Vishuddhi, Ajna and Sahasrara.

What Are Dreams? Is it Different from a Vision?

Dreams and Visions are two different things. Vision means, your ability to see and perceive. When you can see what others can't yet see, you are a visionary. Dreams are nothing but unconscious imagination. They can be used to access certain dimensions of mind to which normally you don't have access. In fact certain cultures have used it for occult purposes. Though many people misunderstand this as mysticism - mysticism is only when you go beyond the physical dimension of body and mind. Dreams are just a manifestation of a false world within.

When Do The Chakras Manifest In The Fetus?

Around the twelve week mark, only one chakra is formed in the fetus; the Muladhara. Then, in the first twenty eight to thirty two weeks, the first five chakras, upto Vishudhi, are formed. How much do Agna and Sahsrar (the remaining two chakras) get, varies for every human being. By observing an infant's eyeball movement, and the way they cry, you can tell if the Agna is established or not. Sahsrar is generally not developed for most. In the Indian culture, there were many traditions, during pregnancy and infancy to facilitate the chakra's development in the mother's womb.

What is Sahasrar Chakra?

Sahasrar, the 7th chakra, is not a physical space. You can not stay there for too long. If you do, you can't hold onto the body. When your energies are in Sahasrar, you will simply float around in ecstasy. In that state, you cannot be functional in terms of human activity. Sadhguru also tells us about the third day's moon, and the symbolism of why it adorns as an ornament on Shiva's head.

Agna, the 6th Chakra, is the highest level of discernment and is the source of knowing. Agna is without any color, that is why it is related to vairagya.

Are There Really 7 Chakras?

Many people refer to yoga as a philosophy. Philosophies are made up - they have nothing to do with reality. In yoga, there is no philosophy. Yogis are not a product of philosophies or scriptures. When they shared their experiences, people around them wrote it down. Whenever something is written down, the writer's mind also goes into it. So, these 7 chakras are not like 7 segments, this is just a certain classification for the intellect to grasp. Otherwise, life is happening as one big whole!
