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...

... 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.

What is the contribution of an aghori to our society? | Sadhguru in Conversation with Prasoon Joshi | #6

Synopsis: What is the contribution of an aghori to our society? To the human kind. What have they done for us? I mean, if you talk about science, I can say, yes those monkeys which have been used, ultimately have got some medicines, have got some certain things with which you can fight diseases. But what has an aghori given to the world? Which they should be proud of and we should...

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,...

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? You lie down and just imagine that you're flying here, flying there. That's not it. 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...

show more...
... 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.

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.

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...

show more...
... 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.

Is Kailash a Mystical Library?

Sadhguru tells us about the initiation process performed at Kailash, and how it opens one up to absorb the possibilities that Kailash offers.

No matter how many times and in how many ways you look at it, still there are endless other ways to look at it".
