Secrets of the dead


Do you still exist after death? Sadhguru says, death is just shedding of the body. You very much exist after that. He also shares what is heaven and hell, and what determines where you will go.

What decides if you will go to Heaven or Hell?

The following is an unedited transcript of Sadhguru's video. For better readability, breaks and highlights have been added by the editors.

Your physical body is something that you have loaned from the planet on which you’re living. When the time comes, the planet will claim it back. But the other dimensions of you, especially the karmic shell, continues to play. If it is in a certain level of awareness, the disembodied being is in a certain state of pleasantness, it is this that is being referred to as heaven. Because they have left their physical body in a certain state of awareness, they enjoy the sweetness at a certain period of time. A holiday a vacation before you take on another physical body.

Similarly if people live in certain states of fear, anxiety, anger, in certain states of ignorance, the karmic shell has acquired a certain kinds of unpleasantness about itself. This unpleasantness is what we refer to as hell. Normally when somebody dies and say this person is no more. But that’s not the truth. No more the way you experience him. But he still is in many other ways. Don’t take body lightly. It’s not a small imprisonment. Unless you break it open, you can’t leave it, isn’t it?

But when one realises how they got in, now they know how to leave. The person consciously sheds the body without damaging the body in any way. Like you shed your clothes, if you can shed your body fully consciously, then we said this is ‘Mahasamadhi’. When a person leaves like this, that’s the end, truly no more. Once again whatever you call as ‘myself’ has just dissolved and become part of the cosmos. Full circle, from nothing to nothing.
