Is there a positive role of our traditions? | Sadhguru at Yale School of Medicine | #6

Synopsis: Can I ask your thoughts on this? In many ways we are the inheritors of our traditions. And they do influence us and shape us. Is there a positive role for the traditions from when we come?

Synopsis: ...

show more...
...Sadhguru, in one of your videos, you say that the problem with the world is that most people lack the intensity. Most people lack the necessary intensity. And then you say the way is dhyana. So intensity is more associated with fierceness and personality and dhyana is more associated with calmness. So they’re somehow counter-intuitive. Can you elaborate a little?

How do we begin to understand our authentic truths? | Sadhguru at University of Toronto | #5

Synopsis: So, I’m a diaspora, I’m Canadian born, my family is from Tanzania but originally from Gujarat. So I’ve always struggled to identify who I am in the Canadian context. So when I went to school, I had to eat my lunch. So I would take my butter chicken and go on the side because I didn’t want my white friends to smell my food. But when I was with my family at a mosque,...

... or temple, I would all of a sudden have an Indian accent. So I was always stuck between these two identities, constantly. And these are things I did as a child, 6, 7, 8, 9. And now as an adult I’m still trying to figure out how to navigate in this space. So my question for you is, as youth we have the ability to adapt our identities to fit the social surroundings we’re in. How do we begin to understand our authentic truths and act upon them in a world that expects us to change and be amiable to our environments?

Try this mind experiment to get insight into how the mind works

Transcript: Well, see the way the question is asked and also the way, normally it's addressed is, people think there is something called as negative thought and positive thought. They want to remove the negative thoughts and have only positive thoughts. For such people, I would ask them to just experiment for 10-15 seconds. Let them forcefully remove one thought from their mind. For example, next 10 seconds, just...

show more...
... don't think of a monkey. Try not to think of a monkey for next 10 seconds, you will see you will be full of monkeys. So what I'm saying is, this is the nature of your mind. Because, in this mind, all the three pedals are throttle. There is no break, there is no clutch, whatever you touch, it will only go faster. In this kind of mind, people have been taught, from moral teachers and religious teachers, do not think about bad things. Well, since then it's been a full-time job. So there is no way you can handle the mind like this. This doesn't need any great enlightenment. If you spend two minutes with your eyes closed, you will realize you cannot do anything forcefully with this mind. So, I want to remove negative thoughts. Do not ever go in this direction because what you want to remove will become your quality. Always you will be on it. So what should I do? The thing is this, without understanding the fundamental mechanism of this mind, because our mind, human mind is the most soft sophisticated computer on the planet. Even all the super computers have come out of this. When this is the case, is it not important that we understand the mechanics of how it functions? One simplistic aspect of how it functions is, there are no subtractions and divisions in our mind. There is only addition and multiplication. If you try to do something with it, it will say one more. If you try hard, it will multiply into many more. In this mind, you don't try to identify what is positive, what is negative, and try to remove it. First of all, one needs to understand, this mind of yours, this body of yours is supposed to serve you. The life that you are is important. Body and mind are vehicles, that must serve us. If you sit in a vehicle, it must go where you want to go. If it goes to its own destination, what is the point of such a vehicle? It's just a nuisance. Right now, most human beings are unfortunately experiencing this fantastic possibility of human mind as a nuisance, as a troublesome thing. Well, this is the most beautiful thing you have.

Did you know – The human brain is always looking for intoxication!

Transcript: You must understand, whatever stimulants, whatever stimulus you may take from outside, essentially human experience of all kinds is caused only from within. The question is only are you on push-start, or are you on self-start. Which is better, technologically? Self-start. So if I teach you, suppose I teach you that you can simply sit here and be totally blissed out, more stoned than anybody on the...

... campus. At the same time, you're fully aware. Would you go for it? Would you go for it? Fully stoned, fully conscious, would you go for it? See, the only problem with your alcohol, drugs, everything is not a moral issue, it is a life issue because it destroys life. It's not a morality, that this is good, this is bad, that's not the point. The point is it makes you incapable in so many ways. There was a certain Israeli scientist who was researching on marijuana or cannabis. Over 18 years the US drug administration gave him large quantities of marijuana and he went on experimenting and 18 years time he came up with really nothing significant. And during mid-80s, when American agencies were fighting drug on the street, they changed their policy of fighting the suppliers in Mexico and South America. They decided to fight on the street, with the users. So they said, somebody said, this is not right. You're giving this man such a big stock, we don't know what he's doing. Because he's not produced anything, 18 years of research. Then he moved to Israel. The Israeli government looked at his work and they decided to give him big stocks of marijuana. And after another 3.5-4 years, he came up with this. He found that in the human brain there are millions of cannabis receptors. Then he threw this question to various disciplines. Anthropologists tried to look at it and say, at some time in history maybe every human being was smoking, that's why the receptors. Then they said, this is rubbish. Because in many parts of the world it was not there, even an Eskimo has cannibus receptors, where he's never seen anything like this. Then various things happened, then the neurologists came up with this. They said, always, the human brain is waiting for the cannibus, that which causes intoxication. Not waiting for it from outside, it can generate from within. That is why there are receptors. So this is something that we have always known. I can show you, I'm there always. You look at my eyes, I'm always stoned. But as aware as anybody can be. If you do not know intoxication in life, you will never know a sense of abandon. If you don't have a sense of abandon, you will never walk full stride in your life, you will only walk half steps all the time.

15 Dec to 15 Jan – How to make use of the planetary positions in this month of Margazhi

Transcript: We are at a time of the year which is considered significant for those who are on the spiritual path. The terminal month of margazhi starts from 16th. What is the significance of this month? It is at this time of the year that the planet earth is closest to the sun. So this should have been the hottest month. But, this is a time when the planet is shy of the sun and the northern face faces away from...

show more...
... the sun. In the southern hemisphere, this is the hottest part of the year. In the northern hemisphere, this is the coolest part of the year because the northern hemisphere, or the northern face, of the planet is facing away from the sun. But it is closest. So in terms of temperature, because of the closeness to the sun, the angle at which the sun's rays hit the planet is very diffused. But in terms of sun's gravity functioning on the planet, right now it is at the highest. So the maximum pull of the sun's gravity is functioning upon the planet at this time. So this margazhi month is a time to bring balance to the system. It is like if something is flying all over, if you just pull it, it gets centralized. So that is the effect that the margazhi month has on the human system, it pulls you from the base. So it brings balance and stability. Recognizing this, that one needs to bring balance and stability, this is a time when there are practices in the yogic system which has transmitted itself into culture in many different ways. This is a time when men will do what generally women are supposed to do and women will do what men are supposed to do. In the sense, in Tamil Nadu, there's a culture that this is a time when men will go on nagaras and kirtan. That means men will practice devotion, they will sing. Singing and devotion is largely considered feminine, so men will practice this. Woman will practice making geometrical figures. Geometry and masculinity are very directly connected. If a woman sees something, let's not say woman. If feminine sees something, it will always pay maximum significance to the colour and form of that. If the masculine sees something, it always sees the geometry first and then the colour and the form. So it is in this month women practice geometry.

In the southern hemisphere, this is the hottest part of the year. In the northern hemisphere, this is the coolest part of the year because the northern hemisphere, or the northern face, of the planet is facing away from the sun. But it is closest. So in terms of temperature, because of the closeness to the sun, the angle at which the sun's rays hit the planet is very diffused. But in terms of sun's gravity functioning on the planet, right now it is at the highest. So the maximum pull of the sun's gravity is functioning upon the planet at this time. So this margazhi month is a time to bring balance to the system. It is like if something is flying all over, if you just pull it, it gets centralized. So that is the effect that the margazhi month has on the human system, it pulls you from the base. So it brings balance and stability. Recognizing this, that one needs to bring balance and stability, this is a time when there are practices in the yogic system which has transmitted itself into culture in many different ways. This is a time when men will do what generally women are supposed to do and women will do what men are supposed to do. In the sense, in Tamil Nadu, there's a culture that this is a time when men will go on nagaras and kirtan. That means men will practice devotion, they will sing. Singing and devotion is largely considered feminine, so men will practice this. Woman will practice making geometrical figures. Geometry and masculinity are very directly connected. If a woman sees something, let's not say woman. If feminine sees something, it will always pay maximum significance to the colour and form of that. If the masculine sees something, it always sees the geometry first and then the colour and the form. So it is in this month women practice geometry.

Did you know – Your mind can run 14 parallel tracks at the same time!

Transcript: This will be very hard for your viewers to digest, but let them have little indigestion. Let them sit up and think about this. As I sit here, I'm talking to you, am I talking sensibly? Yes. Do I look focused? Very. Nobody has ever seen me unfocused on anything, but at the same time I have at least 12-14 tracks running in my mind all the time. So I may be talking to you, but I'm sorting out many, many...

... things. That means, in a way, compared to a whole lot of people, if they think one thing, they can't think the other thing, I have 14 people in one. I could increase the range if I want, I'm just a little lazy. So I don't want to spread it. If little more striving, I can spread it much more. But, you know, here and there I enjoy a little bit of laziness. I thought 12-14 tracks, it's enough and they're running well. So at the same time I'll be designing something, I'll be creating something, I'll be preparing something, everything will be happening at the same time. This is what being human means. Unfortunately, most people utter the word human only with reference to the limitations of being human. Very rarely anybody says I am human referring to the immensity of being human. They are always saying, oh I am only human. So this is what I want them to realize, this is what Adiyogi means. 112 different ways through which you can find solutions of transformation. Solutions or means for transformation. For your immediate needs and for your ultimate needs, both. This dimension of science, where he is talking about the entire nuts and bolts of human mechanism and the nuts and bolts of cosmic mechanism, and how these two things will fit into each other, absolutely without any friction, how you can be a part of the cosmos, how the cosmos can be a part of you. This is not logically correct but, when the Saptarishis asked him, what is the nature of this existence, where does it begin, where does it end, how big is it? He laughed and he said I can pack the entire cosmos into a mustard seed. So then they asked if you can pack everything into a mustard seed, is it big, is it small, what is its nature, what's its composition, how can it be big and small at the same time? By then he was bored with them. Then he just said, like this, five, that there are just five elements. If these five elements, if you understand, if you grasp these five elements, you grasp the entire creation. The physical world is finished with five elements - earth, water, fire, air, and space. If you know these things, you know everything. With these five things, how much mischief, just see. Can you believe with five elements, just with five ingredients, how many things have been created in this cosmos? So he just said this, that's all you need to get. So that's why we called him Bhutaswara, the master of five elements.

Benefits of applying Red Kumkum

Transcript: So you need to understand what's colour, first of all. The colour of any substance is not because of what it is. It is what it rejects, or what it gives away, or what it reflects. Something looks red not because it's red. Because of the seven colors, that the white light contains, it holds back everything and reflects red. So it looks red. So red does not mean it is red. Red means it is not red. Do...

... you understand? Yes. Something is red not because it's red, because it doesn't want red. That's why it looks red. So whatever you give away, that will be your quality in the world also, isn't it? So Devi's colour is red because she gives away red. Red means, if you're walking in the forest, it's all green. But there will be one spot of red somewhere, one red flower blossoming that draws your attention, because in your perception red is the most vibrant of all the colours. All other colours may be pretty, good, nice, but red is vibrant, vibrant, vibrant. Sindoor, you must understand, the important thing is that it is turmeric. That is, it's properly made. If you take the sindoor from the Devi, it's made of turmeric. If you buy elsewhere, it's a chemical powder. If you want to chemically poison yourself, you must use that. Turmeric has phenomenal benefits. So there is a certain way of using the turmeric. Turmeric and lime together makes this and it is very, very beneficial. And the colour turns red and it is also used as a symbolism in the society. If a woman is wearing sindoor, she's married. That means she's not approachable. Essentially, it was a social way of discerning who is who in the society. And it has certain health and other benefits to apply. Turmeric, the colour, is you don't want to put yellow color on your head like Mussolini. So red is better and it is also the colour of the Devi always. Not just here, always.

Why is there caste system in India?

Transcript: I want to know truth about our Indian caste system. How can we ensure more inclusiveness and equality? Namaskaram Viru. This system essentially began as division of labour. For a society to function, a certain number of people in the population must do variety of skills and artisans. Somebody should take care of administration somebody should take care of education and spiritual process for the community....

... Like this they made four basic divisions. Over a period of time, they became further and further divided, not essentially as a discriminatory process, but more as a division of labour. And also, we must understand in ancient times when there were no engineering schools and medical schools, if your father was a carpenter, you learned carpentry at home from childhood and became a good carpenter. So skills were transmitted from generation to generation by maintaining this caste system. But, unfortunately somewhere along the way a goldsmith starts thinking he's superior to a blacksmith. Though a blacksmith's work may be far more useful to the society than a goldsmith's, somehow one thinks he's superior to the other. And over generations, this superiority gets established. All kinds of exploitative processes happened and it came to a place where caste system almost began to manifest itself or it has manifested itself like apartheid. Still in many villages in India, the people who are considered to be lower cause, or what you call as dalits, don't even have basic human rights in many villages. Though much has changed in the last 25-30 years, still many very horribly undesirable things keep happening in our country. The only way out of this is, one thing is, it's not relevant to these times because skills can be transmitted in many different ways. We have educational institutions, we have technological institutions. So this family transference of skills is not the way it is going anymore. But there is one context that is of social security, people take care of their own clan and their caste. They will always reach out to people who are in trouble in their caste. This kind of social security is there. So it is very important that we bring a nationwide social security system and an education system which will transmit skills to everybody according to their aptitude. Once that happens, I think caste system will die a natural death.

Why is the number 112 important? Why is the Adiyogi statue 112ft?

Transcript: See, what is big and small is according to people's perceptions. All the people in the yoga center, they say, Sadhguru, we should have made it little bigger, it's looking so small compared to the mountain behind. So what is small and big is always people's perception. But, there is something called as visual impact. Of all the five sensory organs that you have of seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting,...

... and touching. Tell me, if I tell you, suppose I'm going to take four of these away from you right now, which one would you like to keep? Just the nose or just the tongue? What would you like to keep? This is the option. Four, you have to lose. One, you can keep. Which one will you keep? Eyes of course. Because the five sensory impacts that you have upon you, visual impact is the largest impact for you right now. But, let us say you are a dog, I'm not saying. I don't think dog is anything derogatory, I think it's a great animal. If you're a dog, if I asked you this question you would say nose. Because his food, his survival happens because of his nose. But for a human being the visual impact is the largest impact. So in that sense, it is not about the size of the Adiyogi, it is about the geometry. To get the geometry perfect in a small size is extremely difficult. Extremely different. So we needed a certain amount of size to get the geometry easily in place. The geometry of Adiyogi, now that you ask this question, is to exude. See, when I say geometry of Adiyogi will exude something. Is it true, you went home today and your father was sitting in a certain way, just by looking at his posture, you know whether he is angry, or happy, unhappy, disturbed? Do you know or not? So the geometry of Adiyogi is, we wanted this to exude three aspects. One is exuberance of life, another is stillness of life, another is intoxication. I worked for two and a half years to get this face right. Many, many, many faces were made, then we decided we need a certain size and that size became over 80 feet. When it became over 80 feet, then we thought the number also has to have some significance. So we went for 112 feet because Adiyogi, when he propounded the ways, the different ways in which a human being can attain to their highest possibility, he gave 112 ways. So we made it 112.

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?

... 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?

The secret behind Bruce Lee’s lightening speed

Transcript: He kept his fist just three inches away from the journalist's body and hoo! The man went and fell in the pool. Because you're using the Manipuraka, hoo. The man will just fly. Bruce Lee, heard of him? He was not a yogi, okay? He gave a demo.

... and he was almost super-human. So talks were going on, a journalist came to interview him. And he asked him, "Okay people are talking about all this, give me a demonstration about your power." So Bruce Lee made him stand here, he was at a swimming pool. The swimming pool was nine feet away. He was standing here, the swimming pool edge is nine feet away. He said, "You just stand here," and he kept his fist just three inches away from the journalist's body and hoo! The man went and fell in the pool. A 185 pound man went and fell in the pool with a three inch punch. Just that's all. No like this, just. That's all. Because you're using the Manipuraka, hoo! The man will just fly. Manipuraka could be mobile but that's not a good thing to do. Some of the people, who are into certain type of martial arts, are making their Manipuraka mobile to demonstrate certain things. That is not good at all. Once you learn to move your Manipuraka in a certain way, that too to do demos and stuff, such a person will not live long. So I'm not saying this only with this relation, because anyway he's dead, that's easy to say. Not in that context. Innocently they have shown these things in some of the things. There are yogis who move their Manipuraka and do things. Such people never physically move. They sit in the same place. Once your maintenance center is moved around, you don't move your physical body, you sit in the same place always. I think in some of these martial arts movies, innocently, not knowing what it is, they have shown this. Some old people are sitting, somebody falls down but they're always sitting. Have you seen this?

So I'm not saying this only with this relation, because anyway he's dead, that's easy to say. Not in that context. Innocently they have shown these things in some of the things. There are yogis who move their Manipuraka and do things. Such people never physically move. They sit in the same place. Once your maintenance center is moved around, you don't move your physical body, you sit in the same place always. I think in some of these martial arts movies, innocently, not knowing what it is, they have shown this. Some old people are sitting, somebody falls down but they're always sitting. Have you seen this?

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...

... 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.

Language impacts intelligence – the significance of Indian languages

Transcript: The fanatic range that is there in Indian languages is such, it stimulates every aspect of who you are. English language has a very narrow fanatic range. So this ability to use sounds to stimulate and trigger one's intelligence and energy within ourselves is something that we should not give up. Every child must know one more language other than English. Whatever that is, because anyway, our states...

show more...
... are divided on linguistic basis. So in that state whatever the language is, they must know. We should not kill these languages because it's taken thousands of years to create it. This is our national pride, that we have the maximum number of languages. If we had to create these many languages, see we must understand this. For example, let's say, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. Tamil Nadu and Kerela. There are no geographical separation. There are no oceans between these states. There are no mountain ranges clearly demarcating and separating the populations for a long time. But though they lived here for thousands of years, they kept their language, these people kept their language. It's so beautiful. When they went to trade and transact, they learnt the other language. But, they always kept their language. But today, the new generations are losing their language so rapidly. It's very important, all of you at least in your homes with your children and wherever possible. There must be a certain amount of time where we must use the local language. It's very important. We will regret this deeply after a couple of generations if we don't take care of it now. Because you can't bring back a language. You can kill it, but you can't breathe life into it. It's very difficult.

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.

You can manifest whatever you want by doing this one simple thing

Transcript: Even without doing any activity, you can still manifest what you want. If you organize these four dimensions in one direction, and keep it unwavering in that direction for a certain period of time. Now he believes Shiva will do it for him, and it will happen. So is Shiva going to come and build your house? No. I want you to understand, God will not lift his little finger for you. What has not happened...

... till now on this planet, can happen tomorrow. Human beings are capable of making it happen tomorrow. Everything we, as human beings, have created on this planet, was essentially first created in our minds. All that you see, which is human work on this planet. First found expression in the mind, then it got manifested in the outside world. The wonderful things that we have done on this planet and the horrible things that we have done on this planet, both have come from the human mind. So if you're concerned as to what we create in this world, it's extremely important that first of all we learn to create the right things in our mind. How we keep our minds. If we do not have the power to keep our minds the way we want it, what we create in the world is also going to be very accidental and haphazard. So learning to create our minds the way we want is the basis of creating the world the way we want. A well established mind, a mind which is in the state of Samyukti is referred to as a KalpaVriksha. If you organize your mind to a certain level of organization, it in turn, organizes the whole system. Your body, your emotion, your energies, everything gets organized in that direction. Once all these four dimensions of you, your physical body, your mind, your emotion, and the fundamental life energies are organized in one direction. Once you're like this, anything that you wish happens, without even lifting a little finger actually. Right now the problem with your mind is, every moment it is changing its direction. It is like you want to travel somewhere and every two steps if you keep changing your direction, the question of you reaching the destination is very remote. Unless it happens by chance. So organizing our minds and in turn, organizing the whole system, and these four basic dimensions of who you are right now, in one direction. If you do this, you are a KalpaVriksha yourself. Anything that you wish will happen.

So if you're concerned as to what we create in this world, it's extremely important that first of all we learn to create the right things in our mind. How we keep our minds. If we do not have the power to keep our minds the way we want it, what we create in the world is also going to be very accidental and haphazard. So learning to create our minds the way we want is the basis of creating the world the way we want. A well established mind, a mind which is in the state of Samyukti is referred to as a KalpaVriksha. If you organize your mind to a certain level of organization, it in turn, organizes the whole system. Your body, your emotion, your energies, everything gets organized in that direction. Once all these four dimensions of you, your physical body, your mind, your emotion, and the fundamental life energies are organized in one direction. Once you're like this, anything that you wish happens, without even lifting a little finger actually. Right now the problem with your mind is, every moment it is changing its direction. It is like you want to travel somewhere and every two steps if you keep changing your direction, the question of you reaching the destination is very remote. Unless it happens by chance. So organizing our minds and in turn, organizing the whole system, and these four basic dimensions of who you are right now, in one direction. If you do this, you are a KalpaVriksha yourself. Anything that you wish will happen.

Do we need to match horoscopes?

I mean I know it is a science, but you know when one has to match horoscopes before a wedding. Or a Manglik girl who is supposed to wed a tree first, you know, before she marries the guy. Or the fact that, you know one has to wear particular stones to help various things in life. So what is the...

... truth about it? What is the reality of it all? I mean, because it is very confusing to our generation to understand because either we rebel, or you know, succumb to parental pressure. So if you could help us understand the truth about it, it would be wonderful. Thank you so much. Pranam. Namaskaram Sumona. Well, I like this idea of marrying a tree. I'm married to trees, you know. I think it's a good idea. Very stable partner, rooted. In today's life, getting somebody so rooted is a rare thing. It's a really great idea. See, horoscopes are being matched. What it means is stars are being matched. But how do you match these two idiots, it's impossible. Nobody can match these two idiots. Only if they take responsibility for each other, if they show some sense of involvement and invest their lives in each other then something wonderful may happen. If you match them, doesn't matter how you match them, nothing is going to work out. This is why for most people, all love affairs and marriages are beautiful only for some time. After that it's one big anxiety, or non-stop friction. Simply because people are trying to match each other. You cannot match people. No two human beings are same, it will not work that way. It is just that if you hold the other person's well being above your own, then you will find everything works out. If your life is about extracting happiness from somebody else, you will see it will become bitter over a period of time. If your life is about sharing the joy that you are, then everything will work out. It doesn't matter what the stars say. Anyway, stars can speak what they want. Once you come here as a human being, you are supposed to create this life. This is the only creature on the planet who can structure its own life. If you want to give that up and allow inanimate things like planets and stars to decide the future of who you are, it's a tragic way to exist. So please, you and whoever else is influenced by you, please tell them to take their lives into their hands. It doesn't matter. And how silly is it that a third person, that you do not know, is going to tell you whether you will live happily or not with your husband or your wife. How vulgar is that. Take up this responsibility in your hand. It doesn't matter what kind of fool you marry, you take up the responsibility that you will live well. And that's the only way you will live well.

What happens after death?

When someone dies, we usually say they are 'No More'. This is not correct, as the person still exists, but not the way we used to know them. In the Yogic wisdom, the body is described as having 5 layers - 3 physical in nature, one transitory and one non-physical in nature. The karmic substance is what keeps one cemented to the physical body. When one dies, the physical body falls apart, but the mental and pranic body go on, depending upon how strong the karmic substance is. Once physical body is lost, the discerning power is completely lost- whatever quality you put in the mind, it will multiply manifold. This is what is referred to as heaven or hell. Heaven or hell are not any geographical locations, but experiential realities that a disembodied life is going through.
