Indian Culture / Mind


Sadhguru reveals many aspects in this short video. How the human mind evolved, and that the animal nature is still very much present in our brain. Modern neurologists tell us that one part of our brain is reptilian - which is instinctive. And over that a flower  of cerebral cortex developed. Devi killing Mashishasura and his Buffalo, symbolizes that one has transcended the animal nature, and your brain has fully blossomed. Sadhguru also tells us the significance of Navratri. And that out of 28 days of a moon cycle, 1 day is neutral, 9 days feminine and 18 days masculine. He also tells us that at one point many centuries ago feminine worship was dominant in Kashmir.
