Stop fear based education – fear is the biggest obstacle to success

Transcript: I think it's pathetic. A human being has to construct their life. Human beings have to construct their lives, all the time thinking about how to earn a living. An earthworm, a grasshopper, a bird on the tree, all of them earn their living, isn't it? With such a big brain, you're supposed to do something little different than just earn a living. Earning a living should be the most basic thing. With...

... a millionth of your brain you can handle it. But, we have raised, earning a living, to the heavens today unfortunately. Entire system is about how to earn a living, how to earn a living. This is a way of completely destroying human intelligence. This is a way of tarnishing human genius in every possible way because how to earn a living has become the greatest thing in the world. Why people are driving you in this direction is, because they've built one fake economic engine which they have to feed all the time. They have to feed it all the time. Because of this we're sacrificing our children as a fuel for this economic engine that we have built. It is time, at least a niche amount of children are not concerned about how they will earn their living. When I was growing up, not for a moment I had this thought in my mind, how will I earn my living. My father used to be worried, what will happen to this boy, there is no fear in his heart about anything. One day I turned around and asked him, "When did fear become a virtue?" I'm saying, we are bringing up children with this fear, "If you don't pass, you know what will happen to you?" Continuously fear-based education. That is you don't get these many marks, you're finished. 18,000 children in 2015 have committed suicide in our country. When our children commit suicide, we must know we are doing something fundamentally wrong. There's no question about it anymore, isn't it? Children are fresh life, exuberant life. If children have to take their own lives, there is no worse thing that can happen to your society. Isn't it so? Is there a worse thing that can happen to a society. I'm asking you, is there a worse thing? Many of you are parents, is there a worse thing than this? That your child, less than 12/13 years of age, committed suicide. Can you ever recover from that, I'm asking. This is the most horrible thing that can happen. And this is happening because, in our country 98 is pass mark. Yes? Even if you get 98, parents will ask what happened to the other 2%? So we, as educators, if we are really responsible human beings, we need to turn this around. It's very, very important. And this is a crucial time. All these years there has been a certain economic deprivity in the society where they wouldn't listen to anything. Earning a living was everything. At least we're on a threshold of an economic possibility. This is the time to change the mentality of education. This is the time for the parents and the children to look at it little differently.

How important is spirituality in school education?

Transcript: See when we say, when we use the word spiritual. The moment you utter this, everybody has their own misconception about what it could be. So let me put it in proper perspective. You must understand, the moment you refer to somebody as spiritual, the word seeker also goes with that. You're a spiritual seeker. You're not a spiritual believer. You are referred to as a believer if you adhere to a certain...

show more...
... religion. But you're referred to as a seeker the moment you say, "I'm spiritual." A student is a seeker, isn't it? A scientist is a seeker. A teacher must become a seeker, it's very important. So spiritual process in its essence is a must for education because they have to be active seekers. Whether it is physics, or chemistry, or biology, or spirituality, essentially it is the seeking for the truth of the matter in that particular aspect of life. Isn't it? What else is education? Education is about seeking truth, maybe not the ultimate truth, but right now what we're looking at. We want to know the truth about it, we don't want to know some rubbish about it, we don't want to believe something about it. We want to know the truth about it. If you look in a microscope, we want to know the truth about an amoeba. We don't want to know, we don't want to believe what an amoeba is. We want to know the truth about it. So, a student is a natural seeker. A spiritual process should bring the discipline into a student. See not to believe anything, but at the same time not to become abusive and disrespectful of things around you, takes a lot of discipline. I don't believe a thing that you say. But still, to listen to you takes a certain amount of discipline and culturing. This culturing is a must for a student that every human being should learn. I don't have to believe anything that you say but, I have the necessary regard, respect, and inclusiveness to sit and listen, or to raise a question and object. This is something that has to come into your society, if human thought process has to rise to a different level. If you abuse people, people will get restricted. If you don't question them, they will get restricted. Questioning without abuse. Questioning respectfully, everything that happens around us, is most important and this is the fundamental of spiritual seeking. So spiritual process is a must for any genuine student.

Competition is good

Transcript: Namaskaram Sadhguru. So, I'm saying that the idea of competition is so much ingrained in our minds. Not even at the school level, but even at the postgraduate level. Or any aspect of our lives, that it creates a lot of unnecessary stress, so what can be really done about this? Competition is a good thing. If you're incompetent and you're in competition, you will feel stressed. If you want to be in...

show more...
... a competitive situation, the thing is you have to work on your competence. Right now the problem is, you're tweaking your desire, you're not tweaking your comptenece. This is what has to happen, that we must teach children to tweak their competence, not their desire. We're calling this ambition, we're calling this goal-orientedness. Ambition means what, you tweaked up your desire. You'll suffer invariably. If you tweaked up your competence, you will see, wherever you go you're doing better than what people expect you to do. So naturally, things will go well for you. Competition is not the bad thing. Lack of competence is the bad thing. We must understand this. In this country, this is very important because we still think our education is cooked in heaven. Because people tell me temples are crowded just before the examination. Just the wrong place to be. Just the wrong place to be. When your examination is coming, you sitting in the temple is just the wrong place to be. In the vacation you sat in the temple, great. So instead of competence, we have big desires. If you focus enough on enhancing your competence, you will see there is such joy in breaking limitations everyday and becoming something better. You don't care a damn how somebody else is doing. Yes? If everyday, if you're breaking limitations, if you're breaking the limitations of who you are. If your competence you're working constantly to expand, you don't even have the time to look at somebody. How is he doing. Because this is such a great thing happening within you. So please focus on your competence. Competition you don't bother. If you're good, you'll be on the top. Otherwise, you'll be somewhere. It's okay.

Competition does not make you grow and evolve | Taking pleasure in others failure is sickness

Transcript: Being better than somebody, if it's a pleasure for you, you enjoy other people's failures. I call that sickness. This is not success. You, as a life, you want to be at your fullest. You have a right to be. Every life in creation, from a worm, insect, bird, animal, even a plant and tree. All striving to their best, isn't it? You also. But why are you concerned whether somebody is behind you? Why is...

show more...
... that so pleasurable for you that somebody else is less than you. From early kindergarten levels, this sickness has been brought into human mind, which is causing so much unpleasantness on the planet. Such ugly situations everywhere. But we don't seem to learn. We've created schools where children are never graded. We're looking at them as individuals, what we can do to evolve them to their fullest possibility. Now the problem is, this all life has happened like this. What do you think? You think a blade of grass is less important than an oak tree in the garden? Hello? You think so? Only a fool would think so, isn't it? Hello? But that's what we're doing. We call this education. We call this competition. We call this society. No, very stupid way of handling things. Because, the important thing is, for what you have come with, will you blossom to the fullest human being, or not? This is the only question. This doesn't need anything other than constantly nourishing the atmosphere, not even the person. If you want a plant to grow, you don't do anything to the plant. You just take care of the soil, the atmosphere, the ambience. That's all that needs to be taken care of even for a human being. That you need to take care of the atmosphere so that everybody finds the fullest expression for their life. The moment you think you want to be better than somebody else, you are sick in some way. And this sickness has permeated into the world in a huge way. And we think this is the way to become, you know, to achieve something in our life. So if everybody is lame, you're a little faster and you think you're doing fantastic. You'll enjoy other people being crippled. Yes? Hello? If your entire life is always sitting on top of everybody else, you will enjoy other people's incapabilities, isn't it? This is not good for you. This is definitely not good for humanity.

Education is not about learning, its about learning to use yourself

Transcript: So, this is one thing you must address. Education is not just about learning. All this learning business will be useless and meaningless in the next five to ten years. Once the machine learning comes, everything that you can learn in twenty years, one little gadget will know. Your phone can do ten PhDs a day. That's what is going to happen in the next five to ten years. Because, we have been misunderstanding...

show more...
... memory as intelligence. Everything that you can do with your memory, a machine will be able to do better than you. So education is not just about learning. Education is about learning to use yourself. Learning to use your body, your mind, your emotion, everything in a certain way. It's very important that you know how to remain focused on something that doesn't mean a damn thing to you. It's very important. See, people who say that they lack concentration. They fall in love with the neighbourhood, somebody. Oh they fully concentrated. So it's not that they lack concentration. They say I don't have good memory. Show them a suspense thriller movie, every scene they will remember. So their memory is pretty good. Only thing is, they have not learnt to use their mind in such a way, it doesn't matter what, they can apply themselves. If that is not there, you will not make a headway with your life. All the time, world will not be throwing the kind of ball that you want to hit. You understand? When you go and stand at the cricket pitch, they're not going to throw the ball, the kind of ball that you want to hit. They will throw that ball that you cannot hit. Yes or no? Only when you hit that ball, that is difficult to hit, then people will say you're fantastic. Otherwise you'll be playing baby games all your life. I will do only what I like, I'll do only what I like. So why do you decide what you like and what you don't like. Whatever the hell you have to do, do it with full on. Whatever, it doesn't matter. Because this is not about learning, this is about learning to use yourself in the best possible way. Learning to use your body, your mind. Turning this into your tools. That you have the handle in your hands. Otherwise, if you leave it loose, this mind can cause you so much pain, you don't know.

Why Children Must Also Learn Native Language, Along With English

Synopsis: During an education conference, someone asks Sadhguru - "What is your opinion of teaching in native language vs teaching in English?". Sadhguru says, that in India there are 25 - 30 languages with a script of their own. And many of them have a huge volume of literature.

What is Vidyarambham?

In the Indian culture, education of a child is always started after a certain process, called 'Vidyarambham'. This is so, so that before a child is empowered, in some way it is brought into the life of the child that he feels a certain responsibility for everything in the existence. This is important, otherwise intelligence will work against humanity. Sadhguru tells us, that it is only because the intelligent people in the world have co-operated, that today we have the most violent ways to destroy humanity, enabling a violent man to kill millions.

Why The Current Education System Is Limited?

Sadhguru says that the current education system has become like an industrial process, churning out products. It is conditioning the mind to look at everything in a very limited way. He says - "You will see all those people who are using their intellect and think they are doing great will become irrelevant in the next ten to fifteen years’ time because everything that you can do by gathering data and analyzing it is going to become irrelevant". Sadhguru suggests that there are other ways of doing education, in a way that it develops the body and mind to the fullest extent.

Why Do I Find My Education Pointless?

Our education system was built for obedience to provide clerks for her majesty's service. A fundamental change needs to come in the education policy. Not every child needs to go into academic education. Few can do that, and other need to learn other skills, for their own well-being and for the well-being of the society at large. But right now, if a farmer takes his child to the field, then he can be arrested for child labor! Then how will the skill of farming get passed on? Who will grow our food in the next generation? So structural changes in education system are needed.

The Power Of ‘I Do Not Know’

This is a captivating read! Sadhguru tells us about his days at school, and why he always wanted to run away from it! Young people have always had questions, but they never really get addressed. Usually they are given some advice or sermons. We need to realize that 'I don't know' is the only doorway to knowing - so questions should be encouraged. And people should have the courage to seek clarity and invest their lives in finding the solutions to their questions.
