Why does Sadhguru wear a turban?

Transcript: If somebody reaches a state where his energies are really bursting out of his head, if you activate the two chakras which are above the physical body, if those two chakras become active in someone, then we will not shave. In fact, we would like to grow it and tie it up just above that so that it is protected and nurtured. If you don't have enough hair, we will use cloth. You think I'm bandaged or something?...

... Just in my leg, but. So if there is not enough hair, then you have to use something else. But you will need that, otherwise there will be. Once the two chakras above the physical body are on, it's a phenomenal possibility but it also makes your physical body little fragile. It tends to draw more than it should and this is the reason a lot of yogis die before they're 35. Because once they attain to a certain level of energy, if they don't know all the different aspects of the body, if they do not understand the mechanics of how the human system functions, if you do not understand all the tricks of the creator. In how many ways he's made this so complex and sophisticated. Because sophistication is not just to make it complicated. Sophistication means there are more possibilities than simplistic machine. This is a highly sophisticated machine. So once the energies have topped off, then it needs to be protected. If you have thick long hair, that could be made use of, it's a natural garment. If you don't have or if you're afraid you will lose your hair, then you dreadlock it. You know the dreadlocks? You've seen in saadhu, sanyasis it can be done. I won't tell you how because if you start going around with dreadlocks, that will not be good. There is a way to get your hair into a dreadlock. So you do that. Or, if you don't have that much hair, then you use something else. Garment or a cloth comes in handy.

Storytelling – The enlightened vegetable vendor

Transcript: So like this, one day I'm in the vegetable market in Bangalore city. Then I see a man sitting there selling vegetables, who is shining. I just look at him, my god, what the hell is he doing in the vegetable market? He just looks at me. Our eyes lock up with each other. Then he bursts out laughing and I also laugh. Then I walk up to him and say, what the hell are you doing here? And he said, come, come....

show more...
... He opened up his little vegetable shop and asked me to sit down. So both of us sat in the shop. Then he's telling me his story. He was doing his normal life, wife and two, three children and whatever. One day he fell ill. So ill that they admitted him into a government hospital, a general ward. They put him there. Every day they thought he will die, but he did not die. Every day they thought he will die, he did not die. Two, three months went on. Then there was no space so they put him in the corridor outside because this guy doesn't live, doesn't die. So after about three months his wife stopped coming, she lost her patience. How long to come and sit with him? This fellow doesn't live or die. Four months, or little more than four months, he was lying down there in the hospital corridor. Somebody was throwing some scraps at him and he did not know. Every day he thought he will die today, but he would recover the next day morning. Again he thinks he will die, it went on like this. After four months, slowly, he recovered. But in the meantime something fantastic happened to him. Everything just blew. Every day he thought, today is the last day and then he opened up. Shining, blissful human being. Again back to vegetable selling. Wife gone, children gone, everything gone. Above all, he is gone. Just staying in contact with mortality for four months did this to him. This is important. You must stay in touch with the mortal nature of who you are. This looks like a bizarre thing, oh why is he talking about death, we want to live. What you don't understand is, I can say right now that you're living. Or I can also say you're dying, you're actually dying. One day the process will be complete. Yes or no? Hello? They're just two words for the same thing, isn't it? Right now we are dying slowly. One day it will be complete. Today it's on. Is it on or no? Today the death is on or no? It is on. So what you call as life and what you call as death are not two separate things, it is one thing happening. If you become conscious of this, all the tremendous possibilities of being alive will become yours.

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

Synopsis: Your book ‘Mystics Musings’, which I read many years ago when I lost my younger brother. It was a great tragedy in the family and something that I was finding difficult to cope with. It gave me a great amount of courage and made me feel much better. Also it talked a lot about spirits, it talked a lot about life being a continuous process. In that, you write about...

... when you and your wife, everybody was constructing the Dhyanalinga. And you talk about how a thread of life, grasp of life, something to that effect, became very fragile. When she could not hold onto it and she passed away. What exactly did you mean by that?

Sadhgurus mystical experience in the Himalayas

Transcript: Let me try to bring a little experience to you. This was many years ago. At that time I used to travel alone in Himalayas. But now traveling alone is impossible. If I go, I have a full 10 bus loads of people with me. So I went to Kedar. Beyond Kedar there's a place called Kanti Sarovar. Anybody been to Kedar? Nobody. Okay, that's good. Beyond Kedar there's a place called Kanti Sarovar. The legend goes...

show more...
... like this, that Shiva and Parvati lived on the banks of Kanti Sarovar. The sages lived in Kedar. So sometimes they came down visiting, that's how the legend goes. So I wanted to see this Kanti Sarovar. I just went there and I just went and sat on a particular rock. See, me as a person, I have always avoided learning Sanskrit language. Though I had an immense liking towards the language, I avoided learning it when I had the opportunities to learn. Because the moment you learn Sanskrit, you will end up reading the scriptures. My own vision has never failed me even for a moment in my life. I didn't want to clutter myself with traditions and scriptures and other things. Right now everything that I do is simply, purely from the source, not cluttered with any tradition, any scripture, any teaching. Simply looking at life. So I didn't want to read scriptures. I consciously avoided Sanskrit language. And that day, I was sitting there alone. In terms of visual beauty, it's the most incredible place that you can think of. You know, snow clad mountain peaks, completely snow clad everything and there's a, you know, like a lake which is about two kilometers, two square kilometers kind of lake. Absolutely still, reflecting the mountains. It's, you know, not even a blade of grass anywhere, everything is white and this patch of water reflecting the mountains. It's indescribable really. Even visually I'm saying. So I was just sitting there, my eyes open. And suddenly everything in my experience, my physical body, the rock on which I'm sitting, the mountains, the lake, everything became sound. What was all form became everything into sound. Now that sounds crazy. When everything becomes sound, we call such a status Ritambhara Prajna. When you're in a Ritambhara state, everything becomes sound. It's based on this Nada Brahma. And in my own voice, this song is going on like full volume. I can clearly feel that my mouth is shut, I am not singing but it's my voice in full volume. The song is just going on.

Synopsis: We’ll move to your favourite topic. Now we move to Shiva. So Shiva is what I got from reading and doing my practices and spending time with you, Shiva is not somebody sitting up there and looking at us. Shiva is a dimension. It is, what they say in science, a black hole. Where nothing seems to be the origin of the universe. Where everything seems to be coming out of...

show more...
... nothingness and swallowed into nothingness. That nothingness is Shiva. So anybody who accesses that dimension, if you access it you become Shiva. If I tap into that I can become Shiva. But, tell me, Adiyogi, the first yogi, was somebody who has access to that dimension. So why is it that you are obsessed with Adiyogi? Isn’t it like making it about the container and not the contained? Isn’t it like that? You only talk about Adiyogi. It’s like Adiyogi is the container.

Sadhguru’s experiment with Death

Transcript: This happened to me when I was just 13 years of age. We went for a Dusshera vacation, which was just about 15 days or so, and when we came back, we realized one of our classmates had died. A girl. In the vacation time she died of pneumonia. So her brother, who was one year junior to us, came back and said she died in the vacation. So initially we thought this was fun and we tried to imitate a female...

... voice and answer our attendance and things, because they were still calling her name in the attendance book. But after some time this just freaked me out. This girl is just our age, she was right here, and she just evaporated. Where the hell is she? I thought she's going to come back after a few days. Do the act and come back. But then I saw this is not an act, it's gone. This just got me up like this and I couldn't go to school for a few days. This is not something emotional or nothing. Okay? I have nothing for that person as such, but just the intrigue that somebody who was real just like me, poof. Search where you want. So I really wanted to know what the hell happens. It just so freaked my mind, I wanted to know. So I thought I'll go and see myself. Because I'm made like this, I want to go and see everything for myself. So I went and researched through my father's medicine cabinet. Then I found a bottle of barbiturates and I took them out. Because it was opened, I counted there were 98 of them. And I just mildly inquired, how many does it take. They said an adult could die with 30. 25-30 tablets, they could die. And I thought I am only 13. 98 is good enough. So I had lots of properties. Many things, you know, I won't tell you what all they are. I distributed all of them among my friends and I told a few of my friends you know I'm going, I want to see what the hell this is. They thought I'm joking, they were happy I'm giving away things. They thought some nut case is talking something. So I went home and I knew if I'm on empty stomach it'll be good and I refused to eat my dinner. I said, I have stomach pain, I don't want to eat. And I swallowed 98 barbiturates and went to sleep. And then I don't know what happened. After three days I sort of opened my eyes and I was not in heaven or hell or anywhere. When I saw the rafters, I knew it was my dad's hospital. I immediately closed my eyes. I thought I knew I was in the wrong place. Three days they gave me some, all kinds of stomach washes and they kept me on drip and they did every kind of possible thing and they didn't let me go. Three days later, after all that, I still did not know anything. All I knew was I blanked out for three days and I was in a hospital bed. Then I knew this is not the way to find out.

Being Enlightened, Why is Sadhguru Engaged in The World?

Ever wondered, why would an enlightened being choose to continue engaging in the world? Sadhguru says - "The true joy of action is known only to that person who has no need for action..... After the Dhyanalinga consecration, I had set up everything to leave, but for some reason I stayed on. So I am anyway here among people, so I can do something.
