How to deal with moral dilemmas? | Sadhguru in Conversation with Kiran Mazumdar Shaw | #4

Synopsis: Lot of people go through moral dilemmas. Like you said, you know, don’t do this, you must do that. You have all these commandments. And sometimes I feel certain moral dilemmas are really, really very difficult moral dilemmas. For example, you know you talked about genetics. And if you think about today, young couples who have pregnancy tests and find out that the child...

... has a genetic defect. When they discover that the baby has a genetic defect, then they are in this moral dilemma. This is quite a serious dilemma which a lot of young couples grapple with. For instance, some couples say that should we bring this child into the world because it will suffer for the rest of its life? They feel selfish and say, we will suffer for the rest of our life if we bring this child with a genetic defect into this world. And others feel, no, this is god’s wish that this child should be born. Now obviously there is no right or wrong in this, taking this decision. A lot of this moral dilemma comes from this feeling that if we do this, it is wrong, if we do that, it is right. They’re going by moral tenets of society. How does one figure this out, this moral dilemma? What is your advice to such young couples?

How to remain neutral in political situations? | Sadhguru at JNU | #2

Synopsis: Sadhguru, the next question is, you know JNU is a very, politically, vibrant campus. And it is impossible, or impractical, to be apolitical on this campus. One way or the other, we are labelled to a particular ideology. Right, left, centre. I’ll give you an example. When I came to this campus, I did not get my hostel immediately so a student activist came to me, he...

... told me to come to his room and I went to his room. When I went there, I saw that there are 7 students already living in his tiny room. So I refused to stay there and I stayed outside the campus. But there is a large section of MA and BA students who stay there. And since they are staying there, it is an obligation to participate in political activities and all. So, if they participate in a political activity, they are labelled to have a particular political ideology. Second example, whenever we give a particular opinion, maybe on campus issues, or national issues, or international issues, we are labelled to have a particular ideology. My question to you, Sadhguru, how can a student remain neutral or free thinking?

Why are so many youngsters committing suicide? | Sadhguru in Conversation with Kangana Ranaut | #15

Synopsis: My last question is about our youth. Apparently the statistics say that every one hour, actually less than an hour, one person below 25 is committing suicide. Why is that? I mean there’s a time to die and you can utilize Mahasamadhi for that. But why die before 25?
