Sadhguru - North-Eastern Hill University


North-Eastern Hill University, Shillong 9-28-2018 [Part-1]

sadhguru you haven't rude maybe one hopefully indicative of a
01:04
Ms Carmen good afternoon to everyone
01:10
well why this Newton truth how did it come about well in the last 36 years
01:22
that I've been active with people it's been a constant refrain like this
01:29
thousands of people asking me this question
01:33
Sadhguru when I was 20 where were you you came when I'm 60 what is the point
01:41
these sort of questions have been a continuous thing that I'm hearing so we
01:46
thought we will step out and made all those people who are below 25 in this
01:51
country so this will right now as a part of this in this month we are doing 18
01:59
universities your number 16 right now but we will continue this process for
02:07
another three years one thing is to speak to the youth another thing is to
02:14
create a repository of questions and sensible answers for that so that the
02:23
next generation that comes at least they will invent a new problem because every
02:31
generation is asking the same dumb questions but it's not getting resolved
02:39
see if we had one kind of problem the next generation should at least have a
02:43
new problem isn't it if they have the same problem as I had as a youth this
02:48
means we are not evolving into anything better isn't it so whatever problems
02:53
they have now at least they must come up with a new problem the next generation
02:58
they should be asking the same stuff so we will create a repository and make it
03:03
available for all ways for all youth across the world so this process will
03:07
continue for three years to get every kind of questions that any question that
03:13
an end person can ask and we will put out these answers make it available
03:18
both online and in the form of a book so that anywhere in the world youth when
03:24
they have these questions they have a sensible solution for this another
03:30
dimension of this is little things small things keep people busy for their entire
03:39
life in the sense most human beings are just struggling with their own thought
03:46
and emotion for their entire life our ability to think and every ability to
03:53
emote our two most beautiful aspects of being human but these two wonderful
04:02
things that we have most human beings suffer immensely if your thought and
04:08
emotion happened just the way you want it would you ever be miserable I'm
04:14
asking hello no you would make yourself blissful isn't it
04:21
so essentially most people do not know how to handle their own thought and
04:25
emotion and this just goes on for an entire life 50 60 years of age still
04:30
don't know how to handle your thought when I willing to learn I'm asking when
04:34
is it that it's going to happen that you will know how to conduct your body how
04:39
to conduct your thought process how to conduct your emotion it should happen at
04:43
the earliest part of our life isn't it so is this usually a nap time in the
04:53
university should we how to use this body how to use this mind how to use
05:04
these emotions and energy should we learn at the earliest part of our life
05:08
or towards the end of our life so it amazes me how for most human beings life
05:17
passes without they ever figuring out how to handle their thought and emotion
05:22
even towards the end of their life well if you have to produce a great society
05:28
if you have to produce a great if you have to live in a great world
05:33
there is no such thing as creating a great society or a nation or a world
05:39
actually we can only create great human beings there's simply nothing else we
05:44
can do when we say great human beings in some way their genius unfolded in their
05:52
life and suddenly there stood out among many other people right now in my
05:59
estimate if my percentages are wrong for Shillong you must tell me but generally
06:07
in the world looking at people I think not even 1% of humanity manages to
06:16
unfold or blossom there is genius within them every human being has a certain
06:20
genius but unless it finds an internal and an external ambience it will not
06:27
unfold just the concerns of livelihood concerns of sexuality relationships
06:34
family some problems they keep them busy their genius will never unfold in my
06:41
estimate I am thinking it's well below 1% if we can make this 10% in this
06:49
generation if 10% of the humanity managed to unfold their genius oh we
06:56
will have a miraculous world not a simple work we will have a tremendously
07:01
miraculous world so one thing that's happened why we are more competent to do
07:07
that right now is never before our survival has been as
07:12
well organized as it is today suppose you were in Shillong a thousand years
07:18
ago morning if you want water go to the river get one bucket of water most
07:26
people today are not even fit to carry a bucket of water for a mile yes or no I
07:32
mean just survival kept us so busy all these thousands of years
07:38
just a simple survival of getting water food shelter as
07:43
this fool on this is the first time if you have the needed money you can go to
07:48
your shop and buy everything that you want for the next one month or not step
07:51
out of your house it's possible isn't it food and shelter and other things are
07:57
better organized than ever ever before in the history of humanity I think this
08:03
is the best time to make an attempt to really help human beings to unleash
08:09
their genius and if we do that in this generation we can become the greatest
08:15
generation ever on this planet the possibility is there do we have the
08:19
commitment and the courage to walk the distance because between a possibility
08:24
and reality there is a distance do you have the commitment and courage to walk
08:28
the distance this is all it takes so we are seeing how we can take youth in this
08:34
direction because every human being has untapped genius which comes in a package
08:41
and goes in the same package without ever being exploded we don't want to
08:46
bury your genius one day we want it to flourish in the world this is why we're
08:51
here on to you
08:59
a very good afternoon everyone namaskaram Sadhguru at the very onset I
09:05
would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to you Sadhguru for sharing
09:10
this wonderful day with us it is indeed a blessing to us to have you here
09:15
let me start introducing ourselves to you we have a real student from Commerce
09:22
Department we have a budget-- student from engineering department and myself
09:27
Sunita student from botany department Sakura have just landed who she long I'm
09:32
sure you must have enjoyed your journey how do you like she long well it looks
09:39
like a beautiful place but I haven't seen much of it in litchi long as a
09:44
beautiful city but I must say that the beauty of this place has enhanced much
09:49
more with your presence here I second that
09:52
Seletar it is indeed true the air itself has changed it looks more charismatic
09:57
thank you so much for being here with us that group name has been brimming with
10:03
questions we received so many questions that were so difficult for us to come to
10:07
a few we've chosen a few or with our compiled some of the questions asked by
10:11
you we will be discussing those questions that guru bert before that I
10:15
would like to brief the audience about today is should you so we will be
10:19
discussing the questions as I said asked by you and then we'll have some
10:24
questions that we receive from social media from those who have not been able
10:28
to make it here today and then we'll leave the floor open to the audience so
10:33
if you have any questions you might as well get them ready no further ado I
10:37
would request my friend Abbi ji to begin with the question namaskaram Sadhguru ji
10:43
the first question that I want to ask is actually related to me I'm the I'm in
10:49
the last year of engineering so now there is a very big decision that I have
10:55
to make now and people have told me that if I take decisions from my heart I will
11:03
be successful in life so but there is a problem the problem is that I'm I don't
11:10
know which which thought is coming from my heart and which thought
11:14
is coming from my brain so how can I figure out like which thought is from my
11:19
heart and which is coming from my brain
11:28
the heart makes only two sounds lub dub
11:37
unless the local girls are disturbing it and it's going crazy otherwise it makes
11:46
only two sounds rest of the noise is all coming from your head this idea that
11:53
something comes from the heart something comes from the brain is a it's
11:59
metaphoric but unfortunately a whole lot of people are taking it literally there
12:04
was a time in many parts of the world particularly in Arabia the medical
12:11
science in Arabia believed the blood is pumped from the liver you might have
12:17
heard who the sayings about khaleja you know have you because they believed
12:25
blood is being pumped from the liver because liver is a far more complicated
12:30
organ then the heart heart is a simple pump so do not give it any more
12:37
responsibilities other than continuously pumping the blood and keeping your life
12:46
unless somebody here breaks it so about the last year of engineering I want you
12:57
to change that language because this happened and at a new joke okay you
13:04
pretty serious about this remark this happened a very celebrated scientist was
13:12
at a dinner and he was not grandly dressed or anything he was looking very
13:21
ordinary so the lady who was you know sitting next to him then pay
13:32
much attention to him she doesn't know who he is but after some time just to be
13:38
polite to make some conversation I know what do you do
13:43
he said I'm studying science she said oh I finished that in my tenth class so
13:55
you're not going to you know you're not in the last year of engineering maybe
14:00
the course but not the last year of engineering because for your entire life
14:06
if you learn engineering when you are dying after 100 years I am not reporting
14:14
it after hundred years when you're dying you would still know if you are a
14:21
constant learning process you would still know you know very little about
14:24
engineering that little many things happen that's different so don't be in
14:32
the last year of engineering I know the program may be closing but not the last
14:36
year of engineering so an engineering essentially engineering means to have
14:45
things the way we want yes when we say this building is well engineered I'm not
14:52
saying that if we say this building is L engineered or an automobile is well
15:00
engineered what it means is its functioning the way we want yes of all
15:08
the pieces of engineering on this planet of many pieces of engineering a tree is
15:14
a fantastic engineering even a mountain is fantastic engineering because it's
15:18
still there for a million years that means it must be good engineering isn't
15:21
it yes something that stands there for a million years must be well engineered of
15:29
all this the most sophisticated piece of engineering is human mechanism isn't it
15:36
so hello most sophisticated of all the pieces of
15:41
engineering now because it's a sophisticated piece of engineering it
15:49
needs a certain level of attention otherwise you don't figure it now that
15:55
we gave you such a highly you know I take piece of engineering I am asking
16:03
you did you read the user's manual I I think there is no user manual Oh No how
16:15
can that make such a fantastic piece of engineering without a user's manual
16:18
maybe it doesn't come with a booklet attached to your neck when you were born
16:27
but indications must be there isn't it how to use it huh is it true somebody
16:35
who's an athlete or a gymnast or someone else like that learns to use their body
16:40
then a whole lot of other people yes obviously at least one aspect of the
16:47
physical engineering of the body they seem to have read the user's manual
16:52
about the physical aspects is it true certain people are able to use their
16:58
mind better than others maybe they did another part of the user's manual so now
17:08
with this hard manual and the brain manual see the problem is most people
17:16
are prejudiced against the brain this is a question or always comes to me so the
17:23
guru I want to meditate but the thoughts are
17:25
coming the common question everywhere I ask them see I will make you meditate
17:32
we will stop the liver I will stop the kidney will stop the heart will stop
17:37
everything okay
17:41
so you want the liver to function when you're meditating you want the kidneys
17:46
to function you want even the spleen to function you want the heart to function
17:50
but you don't want your brain to function for some reason this is simply
17:55
because brain is a new equipment that you got in the evolutionary process this
18:03
level of cerebral development happened more recently compared to the other
18:08
systems if you could open any mammal they all have all these parts isn't it
18:14
every part that you have here all of them have even if you open a frog
18:20
most of you biology department even if we open a frog almost everything that
18:28
you have he also has simply it is only the big difference is only the cerebral
18:34
development which is a more recent happening because it's a more recent
18:39
happening most people have not figured how to handle it so use this manual is
18:46
very important you don't read a user's manual just before you discard the
18:52
Machine you read it the first few days isn't it hello if you buy a phone do you
19:00
want to read the user's manual in the first three days or after three years
19:04
when you're throwing it away miss three days isn't it so knowing how this
19:10
functions is very important never did ever heart generate any thought or
19:17
intention well when you look at the young girl heart beat more that doesn't
19:25
mean it's saying anything it's just trying to compensate for the other
19:28
levels of excitement that's happening
19:36
the heart is not trying to say anything it is only compensating you need more
19:41
blood so it's pumping little harder that will
19:46
happen even if you run up the staircase yes what happens to you little panting
19:52
when you fall in Lao also happens physiologically when you run up the
19:56
staircase you should know fear also does that to a whole lot of people so heart
20:03
is not trying to say anything it is just trying to make sure every part of the
20:07
body gets the nourishment of blood flow so it's your brain speaking in different
20:13
tongues what's your native language what's your
20:18
mother tongue s miss so because when you know two three languages sometimes it
20:24
gets confused sometimes it speaks in English sometimes in SME sometimes in
20:27
something else so you are thinking different people are speaking heart is
20:31
speaking mind is speaking now there is thought and there is emotion people
20:39
think these two things are saying different things they're not saying
20:42
different things the way you think is the way you amount isn't it so right now
20:48
if I think oh she is the most wonderful person on the planet I just have to
20:53
think then my emotions become sweet towards now I think she's the most
20:59
horrible creature on the planet now my emotions become nasty yes sir I
21:06
cannot think she is horrible and have sweet emotions I cannot think she's
21:11
wonderful and have nasty emotions isn't it so but today I thought she is the
21:16
most wonderful person and my sweetness was flowing suddenly she did something
21:22
tomorrow that I don't like I think she's horrible how it is a giant
21:27
it changes direction just like that emotion is little sappy it takes time to
21:33
turn around so that period you struggle as if there are two dimensions of thing
21:40
happening because thought is saying one thing emotion is still going sweet
21:45
because it takes time to become nasty everybody struggles but it catches
21:50
support now after sometime hello today you thought she's wonderful sweetness
21:56
was flowing tomorrow she did something you don't like you thought she's
22:00
horrible man the thought is clearly saying she's horrible
22:03
but the emotions are struggling because they can't turn quickly they take time
22:07
to turn but after a week or ten days of two months depending on how deeply
22:13
you're engaged after some time emotion catches up with the thought emotion also
22:20
says yes she's nice horrible so Willits be nasty to her so they're not speaking
22:26
different languages one is agile another is little slow in its corners so it
22:35
looks like they're speaking different languages when it comes to what you want
22:39
to do you must think clearly it's very important thinking clearly means the
22:48
question is not about what will get me this what will get me that are you is
22:54
your life precious to you all of you have asking your life is it precious to
22:59
you so before you invest this life into something you must look whether today if
23:07
I invest my life into this after 25 years will it still mean a lot to me
23:11
after 50 years will it still mean a lot to me at the end of my life you turn
23:16
back and err in look will I be proud of this or will I be ashamed of what I am
23:20
doing right now doesn't matter what other people say but you should not do
23:24
anything that you will feel ashamed of isn't it so ah it doesn't matter people
23:29
say so many things everybody has opinion is their business but you don't do
23:34
something that you will feel ashamed of isn't it then you were turning against
23:38
yourself somebody turns against you you can leave them and go somewhere else if
23:42
you turn against yourself you will have to live with it forever so this is all
23:48
you have to look at it somebody something will get you money something
23:51
will get you comfort that's not the point
23:53
what you choose to do will it give you a life when I say
23:58
it give you a life are you just trying to make a living or are you trying to
24:03
make a life out of this it's important making a living is not an issue a worm
24:10
or insect a bird an animal all of them are making their life making
24:15
a living isn't it so they're even making a life out of it but definitely they're
24:20
making a living so making the living with such a big brain is not a issue
24:25
earning your food is not a issue making a living is not a issue only problem
24:30
means you want to live like somebody else that's an endless problem I want to
24:35
live is not a problem I want to live like you this is a problem so it is
24:41
important if you consider your life as a precious life you must make sure you
24:48
make a wonderful life out of this whatever
24:52
opens up in that direction that is the thing you should do but when you are
24:56
under the pressure of Peers somebody is saying I am going to America somebody
25:00
says I'm going to the government job somebody says I'm doing this so one
25:05
thing that all of you should do before you make big decisions in your life is
25:10
withdraw from these pressures of peers professors parents everybody just spend
25:18
three days to one week by yourself look at it what is it that you really want to
25:24
do not under pressure from other people what does this life want to do do that
25:30
it doesn't matter what other people think about it
25:39
Thank You Sadhguru sakru this is another question I have you have mentioned on a
25:46
number of occasions that we cannot ignore the materialistic body that we
25:49
have been given and that we have to live with it but how do we find the balance
25:53
between the materialistic world and the spiritual world where exactly do it
25:57
other lines at guru say yeah first of all there is no imbalance the imbalances
26:05
come simply because of ridiculous teachings first of all there is no such
26:12
thing as material and spiritual even if you're spiritual you're walking on this
26:17
planet isn't its own is that material or will you go in space is this material so
26:28
how do you separate these two things these sort of teachings and these kind
26:35
of things this kind of confusions have been
26:38
generated by people who are not spiritual in their experience they are
26:43
spiritual because it is what to say it's the it's a cultural fad somebody read
26:52
something and they think they spiritual you reading something you're reading a
26:56
book is called literacy not spirituality isn't it oh I read this book so I become
27:04
spiritual there is no such thing all I'm asking is let us take off this word
27:10
because it's the most corrupted word if you say spirituality somebody's thinking
27:16
of heaven somebody's thinking of God somebody's thinking of a egg-shaped
27:19
something floating leave that word you have a body for sure it's visible
27:28
you have mind yes you have emotions but there is also a life energy behind this
27:36
isn't it there's a life are your life it's a question
27:43
you're alive so let's not give it any other name there is life all physical
27:51
material that you gathered you gathered from outside isn't it so this is just a
27:56
food that you've eaten yes or no what you call as my body it's just a food
28:02
that you've eaten or it's just a piece of the planet what was oil became food
28:09
what was food became flesh and bone now he is sitting here we gathered this body
28:16
or a period of time you are not born like this you gathered it slowly piece
28:20
by piece isn't it little by little similarly whatever is in the content of
28:26
your mind whatever the content of your mind
28:29
also you gathered from outside isn't it so so this is a heap of food this is a
28:36
heap of impressions anything that you gather anything that you ever gather you
28:43
can claim it is yours but you can never say it is me isn't it so hello right now
28:52
as I'm speaking I'll take this vessel it's become very famous this vessel this
28:59
is my recipe if I say this is my whistle you will think oh so the gurus got some
29:05
problem but let's listen everybody says his voice after some time I said this is
29:15
me then you say let's go I did not say to man I was only suggesting I was not
29:26
saying
29:33
because the moment I say this is me you know this is a nutcase the moment they
29:42
say I am the vessel you know this is a lost case isn't it wrong so this is
29:49
happening to you everyday could appears on your plate you said this is my food
29:54
you eat it then you say this is me yes or no hello
30:02
you have a psychiatric Department also in the inner city no no medicine this is
30:10
saying it will come soon so definitely you understand what you gather can be
30:24
yours at the most but never ever can be your you isn't it so this is understood
30:31
so everything that's material about you is gathered from outside isn't it but to
30:38
gather all this there must be something fundamental which gathers all this let's
30:43
not give it a name we'll just call it life for now you are a life but you
30:48
gathered a body you gather the information and became like this
30:53
now if you are only experiencing what you have gathered that is your
30:59
physiology and your psychological structure that means you're going
31:05
through life life process without touching life ever just the surface
31:12
aspects that you gathered you are only experiencing the accessories of life the
31:17
today when people use the word life you'll you have to sift through that
31:21
because they may be talking about their job they may be talking about their
31:26
family they may be talking about their dog they may be talking about their
31:30
wealth or business when they say my life you are supposed to understand what the
31:35
hell they're talking about they are not talking about life yes
31:38
they're talking about many things accessories
31:43
cities don't make the real thing isn't it this is like for the sake of
31:49
hysterics if you have a skirt you will add film to
31:54
it now many times it's happened in societies it's happened to many many
31:59
people they went on adding frills frills became
32:04
so much of their attention they forgot to wear the skirt that's an embarrassing
32:10
way to live isn't it that's all that's happening to humanity right now they
32:15
gathered so many things now they've forgotten what is the basis only to
32:21
facilitate this life to happen better we gathered all these things isn't it yes
32:26
you know everything that we gathered including our education you are
32:31
educating yourself because you believe if I am well educated my life will be
32:37
good you will get married why because you think if I am bit somebody that I
32:41
like my life will be good you have children why because somebody convinced
32:46
us you if you have children life will get better you have a dog why because
32:51
you understand if you have a dog maybe life will be better when nobody else is
32:55
reliable dog will be there yes it's not only man's best friend it's a woman's
33:02
best friend also these days so we gathered all these things only to
33:10
enhance this life but this has been totally forgotten so if this comes into
33:16
your attention then we use this most corrupt word called spirituality that
33:22
means you started experiencing something more than the physical why I am saying
33:27
this is right now your entire experience of life is limited to seeing hearing
33:33
smelling tasting and touching this is the way you know there is a world this
33:37
is the way you know that you are existing right now if you
33:49
if you just those a little bit first thing is I will disappear in your
33:55
experience yes sir little more months everybody will
34:01
disappear then you also disappear isn't it yes sir
34:09
say your ally heart is beating even brain is functioning everything is
34:16
functioning but in your experience there is no you there is no world there is
34:21
nobody isn't it all that's happened it is a five sense organs shut down that's
34:26
all so right now your whole experience of life is only through these five
34:30
senses so these five senses in the very nature of things can only experience
34:36
that which is physical see you can see only those things which actually stop
34:42
light they must be opaque not only physically when the hair is physical but
34:46
you don't see it simply because only if you pick if it stops light only then you
34:52
see this suppose my hand doesn't stop light you don't see it isn't it do you
34:58
see my other two hands now because they don't stop light anything that does not
35:06
stop light you don't see but isn't air vital to your life
35:11
hello just because you don't see it can we dismiss it is it very important vital
35:19
similarly the life that you are is not visible to this two eyes but it is the
35:25
most vital thing isn't it so there is no need to balance they're all perfectly
35:33
balanced that's why you're alive spiritual process does not mean you are
35:38
going to invent something always spirituality was referred to as
35:42
realization realization means what something that has always been there and
35:48
I was stupid enough not to see it today I saw it I did not invent anything I did
35:55
not create anything something that was always there I saw today
36:01
though in it all the time here I did not see it only today I saw this is
36:06
realization this is not an attainment this is not an acquisition this is not
36:10
something else this is just realization so realization does not change any
36:17
dynamics of life it's just the way it is but because you realized suddenly you're
36:23
empowered just because we realize the planet is round at one time it has
36:30
empowered us in so many ways isn't it so if we thought it's flat
36:34
which as we did some time ago no but we just realized we didn't make it round
36:41
it was always round but we thought it's flat but one day we realize it's round
36:47
how it's changed our life isn't it similarly spiritual process means just
36:52
this you are not doing anything you just started seeing everything the way it is
36:57
rather than imagining it some other way and seeing things the way they are is
37:03
the biggest empowerment you can have isn't it in your life whether you want
37:09
to engineer or you want to run commerce or you want to do biology first and
37:14
foremost thing is you see the way it is isn't it if you don't see it the way it
37:19
is everything that you do will be wrong not one thing everything that you do
37:24
will be wrong suppose we thought the earth is flat and made a thousand
37:27
calculations about this planet everything not one thing everything will
37:32
be wrong isn't it so so without realization not one thing everything is
37:38
wrong with life
37:44
Thank You Sadhguru Satguru I'm so lost in your words that I don't want to ask
37:50
any question I just want to listen to you but this is a part of my this is why
37:54
no that is why you ask a question and this is a part of my job - I am I am put
38:00
here to ask question to you so I put up an intense question to you now sir
38:05
Korean context to space and food should human race specially in India now stop
38:13
reproducing and start adopting children instead turned out somebody must be
38:19
reproducing
38:28
you mean to say I think there are many many children in the street that need
38:39
parents and home so why don't we bring them to our home rather than reproducing
38:45
by our own why don't we parent to them but in in
38:50
the process of doing so are we losing the very essence of motherhood and what
38:55
is the meaning of motherhood according to Satoru that is my question
39:01
is suppose your mother delivered you and did not show any sense of inclusion she
39:10
just left you there is it possible that she could become your worst enemy yes or
39:17
no very much isn't it so your mother is your mother not because she biologically
39:24
delivered you your mother is your mother because in various ways she showed you
39:29
that she is holding you as a part of herself
39:34
just biological delivery did not make her mother biologically yes because you
39:40
are from the biology department but in your experience she is your mother only
39:47
because of the level of inclusiveness that she has displayed in her life isn't
39:52
it if she excluded you she will become your worst enemy isn't it yes so for
40:00
this inclusiveness for you to include somebody all it takes is willingness yes
40:07
all it takes is willingness not biological capacity to get pregnant and
40:12
deliver all it takes is willingness right now if you are willing can you
40:19
just look at these people and really see them as you don't
40:23
children possible possible or not maybe you have some issues with some of them
40:28
that's okay leaving those two people she's just I
40:33
didn't think oh but these two I'm trying to figure out who do I know in the
40:40
audience I'm trying to you don't have to know anybody you don't know anybody but
40:44
can you sit here like a mother to all of them if you're willing because it's only
40:50
a question of willingness isn't it so the problem is just this for most people
40:57
their willingness is coming in installments
40:59
I will accept you but I can't stand this guy
41:05
I can't said this guy but I hate this person like this now he has to do many
41:13
things to me for me to accept him slowly but if you really look at it the nature
41:20
of human beings is sad take the example of somebody who's closest to you in your
41:27
life sincerely don't tell me anything if sincerely you look into it and see
41:34
how many layers of resistance you have for that person who is dearest to you in
41:39
your life yes or no many many layers of resistance because of that we have
41:46
become like this unless something falls out of my body it is not mine
41:55
even what comes out of your own body is not yours children will make you realize
42:01
as you grow old enlightenment from the next generation because biology will
42:16
bind you only to a certain point beyond that there is human intelligence and
42:22
emotion and consciousness if there is no inclusiveness you will not feel like one
42:29
you may be biologically connected but you may hate each other intensely
42:33
possible isn't it but people will fall back on biology because for them only
42:41
their blood is functioning their brain is yet
42:43
function for most human beings their blood is functioning genetics are their
42:50
stuff is there but their brain is it to function as I told you they have not
42:55
learned how to use it generally they are using it against themselves they call
43:00
this trash they call this anxiety they call this depression misery whatever
43:05
essentially your intelligence is turned against you that's always and it's wrong
43:09
hello you can give it many many names when the psychiatry department comes
43:16
they will give you many labels they have identified some 72 or 74 varieties of
43:23
mental ailments now so they'll give you one of those titles but essentially your
43:30
intelligence is turned against you so you choke because you said it's a very
43:40
intense and serious question the biggest problem with human life is we have taken
43:47
ourselves too seriously this is the biggest problem see on this planet
43:54
you're just a pop-up have you seen those pop-ups in the computer screen they come
43:58
poop and poop you are just that on this planet in the life of this planet you
44:04
just a pop up for two seconds and out countless number of people who thought
44:10
they were bigger and smarter than you have been here before you and me isn't
44:15
it where are they all top soil I should know this one also become tops will
44:24
become topsoil after sometime unless your friends choose to bar you real deep
44:31
fearing you may raise from the dead you know there have been such this happened
44:39
this happened there was a couple in Texas United States there were over 75
44:45
years of age it was their life's dream to go to the Holy Land Jerusalem but you
44:53
know marriage chill children growing up university marriage
44:58
and grandchildren better now once you start one thing you take ever lunch know
45:04
many things will happen now there are 75 now they got a opportunity so they went
45:12
to Jerusalem Jerusalem is a place where every cobblestone is bleeding with
45:17
history so they walked that street where Jesus is supposed to have walked felt
45:24
overwhelmed went to that place where Jesus is supposed to have walked upon
45:29
the water like this they went all over the place
45:32
very excited unfortunately the lady had a heart attack and she died so the man
45:41
was preparing to take the body back to Texas but then the local people came
45:46
they said this is the Holy Land this is the right place to die your wife has
45:52
done the right thing there is no point in taking this body to Texas and taking
45:58
the body to Texas the flight charges are $18,000 Plus local charges out there for
46:05
rituals and stuff here because you have lost your wife and you come for America
46:10
just twenty thousand dollars will finish everything the man looked at them and
46:17
then he said no I will take her back to Texas then they said okay it's all right
46:23
because you from Texas will give you a super discount $12,000 let's do it this
46:30
is the place you know the Holy Land the man thought about it and then he said no
46:37
I'm taking her back to Texas then they said see you lost your wife of 45 years
46:44
you are not thinking straight you distressed don't do this this is the
46:51
place to die you know right place
46:56
because you're distressed we'll give you super super discount we'll make it
47:01
eight thousand dollars let's do it now come on come on the man thought about it
47:06
and said no I'm taking her back to Texas they said
47:11
why what's the point he said in Texas dead stay dead I am NOT getting in our
47:26
journey so our biological connections are important I'm not saying no but we
47:42
have overly exaggerated this this is this I am calling as dhritirashtra
47:47
syndrome you know the thrust at any cost to my son
47:53
the he's a bloody idiot it doesn't matter at any cost my son unfortunately
48:00
after five six thousand years it's still going on I get down in Chennai yeah you
48:08
know if you get down at the Chennai Airport first neon sign advertisement
48:12
he's a fertility clinic in India you need a fertility clinic what your need
48:21
is an infertility bomb
48:28
I am not preparing any kind of philosophy or ideology for you see in
48:36
1947 when we got our independence for this country the average life expectancy
48:41
of an average Indian was 28 years 28 since then today the average life
48:51
expectancy is around 66 or 67 which is a phenomenal achievement for the nation
48:57
when we postpone our depth should we not postpone our birth I'm not
49:06
talking any philosophy any ideology or any kind of religion I am talking simple
49:12
arithmetic you postpone your death should you not postpone the birth
49:17
hello so right now it is not that too much reproduction is happening yes it's
49:24
happened but it is not that excessive reproduction has happened it's not true
49:28
we've managed that but people are beginning to live a little longer which
49:32
is a wonderful thing yes people are beginning to live longer everywhere you
49:38
go I was at the World Economic Forum they were at that time in 2008 there
49:44
were four Union ministers gloating to the foreign media we are the youngest
49:48
nation in the world we are the youngest nation in the world our demographic
49:51
demographic dividend is like this like that I thought okay once twice you say
49:56
it it's all right but they said it half a dozen times then I asked what happened
50:04
to the old people they should know no we are the English nation in the world all
50:09
right but what happened to the old people no no we don't have old people we
50:14
are the youngest nation all right but why because nobody got old everybody
50:19
died young see is it not unnatural that you don't have old people in a society
50:26
is it not unnatural Oh only young people are there means what nobody got old the
50:33
dangerous situation yes well now people are getting little older wonderful so
50:40
now we must also graduate our reproduction a little bit
50:44
calibrate a little bit in this culture largely in the Indian subcontinent at
50:51
certain times of history we had it like this 70% of the population was in family
50:59
ways of life 30% was ascetic they were sannyas taking sannyas or whatever
51:08
they're never getting into that aspect just this managed the population very
51:14
well just this one thing 30% never engaged in sexual activity or
51:21
marriage or anything they did not produce children so the remaining 70%
51:25
even if they had five children by the time the child becomes 15 normally
51:30
nature made it into two or three always and there were periodically there were
51:37
Wars and people died more easily in the past because there was no such medical
51:46
thing those who are not fit to live they died today we have many things all great
51:51
that we have done certain things for the human well-being but we must also
51:56
understand the land that we live upon also has a life it's a life itself
52:04
you can't just be occupying every square inch of it and thinking we are doing
52:08
something fantastic just stupid because today there are some studies which say
52:16
if all the insects on the planet die today let's say all insects died today
52:23
in about four and a half to six years time all life on the planet will
52:28
disappear simply because there are no insects except deep down in the earth
52:33
there are certain microbes which may survive if all the worms die today in 18
52:41
to 24 months all life on this planet will disappear including you and me if
52:46
all the micros did microbes disappear right now all of us will be dead within
52:51
one and a half hours but if all of us disappear
52:55
planet will flourish yes or no so one one wrong perception that's happened
53:09
religions have spread this messages saying that we were made in the image of
53:14
God so all other creatures are here to serve us no please just go and look at
53:23
the movement of ants an ant doesn't think he is there to serve you he's got
53:28
a life of his own I said no you interfere with that he will do what he
53:34
has to do to you isn't it does he think he's there to
53:39
serve the human being because you went there all of them put up their front
53:42
legs and did this to you huh he's got a complete life of his own his life is
53:49
important for him isn't it so these ideas that the planet and all
53:56
the life was made to serve humanity is a very wrong idea first of all this idea
54:02
that the creation is human centric is the most dumbest idea we have on the
54:08
planet this creation was not made for human beings we are just one consequence
54:16
of the creation on this the biggest problem right now humanity has why we
54:22
are doing what we are doing whether it's reproduction or construction or whatever
54:27
else we are doing why we are like this ease see in this cosmos nobody knows
54:36
where it begins where it ends in this cosmos this solar system this Sun and
54:43
this you planets 12:14 planets it is a tiny speck tomorrow morning if the speck
54:51
of a solar system just evaporates nobody will notice it it's that small in this
54:58
tiny speck planet Earth is a micro speck in that micro speck
55:05
Shalom is a super super micro speck in that you are a big man this is not a
55:20
small problem this is not a small problem this is a very big problem so
55:24
everybody wants to leave their footprint reproduction largely is a footprint
55:31
people want to leave a footprint I'm not saying nobody should have a
55:35
children nobody should have children but once you become human the difference
55:40
between us and other creatures is whatever they do we also do they eat we
55:46
they sleep we sleep they reproduce very produced they die we die all right we're
55:51
doing the same things but the significance of being human is we can do
55:57
it consciously reproduction also must happen consciously isn't it hello thank
56:11
you


North-Eastern Hill University, Shillong 9-28-2018 [Part-2]

00:00
sadhguru how can a person stay committed to someone in a relationship
00:04
is it natural to love someone and yet be sexually attracted to others what should
00:10
be the proper course of action that should follow or how does one handle
00:13
this so yeah there is uh there is a psychological integrity there is
00:26
emotional integrity but there is a biological integrity also integrity does
00:33
not mean morality integrity means you create a situation where it works best
00:41
for you so when we say integrity suppose I say there is a certain integrity to my
00:48
body this means it's strong and resistant to
00:51
a whole lot of things isn't it it doesn't mean I am morally stuck in
00:55
something so I'm talking about I want you to understand the word integrity in
01:00
that context we are talking about integrity in terms of strength of this
01:04
life so if that is the thing is it true do you remember how your
01:12
great-great-great great-great grandmother
01:14
ten generations ago look like do you remember no but her nose is sitting on
01:19
your face so no body remembers isn't it body remembers your forefathers a
01:26
million years ago yes or no so what you're calling is my body is a heap of
01:32
memory isn't it so memory or no see now from Nepal you came to see long you eat
01:42
a lot of this Meghalaya food your features won't change because your body
01:50
remembers what is your genetics no matter what or you start eating let's
01:55
say cows food our dog's food your body will not get confused and become a dog
02:01
or a cow because there is evolutionary memory in this do what you want it never
02:07
gets confused isn't it you start thinking I am a dog and start working
02:11
like one still the body won't change yes or no mentally you can but body has
02:18
such a deep-rooted memory for this entire body
02:22
what you have is essentially a certain integrity of memory if that loses that
02:28
memory integrity then you will see it will become vulnerable to so many things
02:33
now the nature of the body is such that anything that you touch with a certain
02:40
level of involvement will naturally absorb that memory not mentally
02:45
physically it will absorb that memory I mean traditionally in this culture we
02:52
call this ranana bandha you heard of such a word run and what this means is
02:58
physical memory that you gather why people you know you will see this with
03:04
people let's say in their home they will go and sit in one place this will
03:10
usually the older people you will see they want to go and sit in the same
03:14
place they won't sit in another place have you noticed this even your dog he
03:21
comes if he wants to sit here he'll smell this he'll smell that he'll smell
03:25
that he'll smell that and after much searching he will settle down in that
03:30
particular place next time you change him somewhere he comes he goes and sits
03:35
in the same place because there is memory today there is forensic equipment
03:41
where you're sitting here right now you went away after two-three eight hours if
03:47
they come not with a dog a dog can easily do it but with forensic equipment
03:53
we come here and just check this chair and we know it was you who are sitting
03:59
here not somebody else so there is memory wherever you sit
04:04
stand whatever you touch there is memory and transaction happening all the time
04:10
well you come from Nepal in India also it's very much there in South is very
04:15
strongly they are not maybe it's become weakened we people never give salt to
04:23
another person do you know this here also
04:27
if somebody gives you salt you said please keep it there because there are
04:31
certain materials which transmit memory much better than others salt sesame
04:37
seeds lemons like this if you give traditional people then skip it there I
04:42
will take it because they don't want to develop prune on a bond that you with
04:47
you now in India if you see all the generation of people if you try to shake
04:54
their hands they'll do like this because they don't want to get Ronin Abunda with
04:58
you because the idea is to keep the integrity of your body's memory in such
05:04
a way that it doesn't become vulnerable to other things that you become a very
05:10
integrated life if you want to nurture yourself to be a certain possibility
05:15
then you have to maintain the memory integrity this is what ranana bandha
05:20
means you keep your physical memory to the minimum a sexual interaction is
05:26
something where a huge amount of memory is taken from one to the other
05:31
so always not in this society everywhere else forever people saw the advantage of
05:39
keeping that memory to the minimum if you come if you make that memory very
05:44
complex you will see to be at ease will become very difficult after some time
05:51
there will be pleasure but there will be no joy in your life you can you can
05:56
absorb people don't go by what I am saying you can absorb people they will
06:00
have pleasure they will giggle all the time but you look at them there is no
06:04
joy in them there is no ease because the ease will go away with excessive memory
06:09
this is not only with sexuality there are many other things that you do like
06:13
this right now you see this very much in the Western societies wherever I go
06:21
especially in America people will go where is my hug it must be with you
06:27
why is it with me it is not like at a certain moment when you feel close to
06:34
somebody you hug them it's like all the time you have to touch people because
06:39
today psychiatrists are analyzing these things and saying that is because they
06:44
have not been sufficiently touched by them by their mothers and parents at an
06:48
early age when they grow up they're desperately longing to touch somebody
06:52
all the time all these things have a serious impact on one's life how much
06:57
physical contact when the child is born this will determine how much physical
07:02
contact they will long for later on and the memory of what an infant picks up
07:10
from the mother at that time because till a child becomes four and a half
07:14
years of age in many ways energy-wise it's not a separate life it's still
07:20
attached to the mother's body actually if by nature if people go till then they
07:28
must be drinking the mother's milk and connected up to four and a half years
07:33
that's how naturally it was so the energy doesn't mature at that time more
07:38
and more memory that you become get from the mother is better and better to
07:43
strengthen this but once the child begins to move out and becomes an
07:48
individual life is organizing itself people come to me and say Satguru can
07:52
you bless my daughter can you bless my son first thing I ask is how old if they
07:58
say 15 16 18 all right if they're over 21 I said no because me blessing you
08:05
blessing will not go to your child you may still think emotionally that's my
08:09
child but as far as life is concerned it's become fully separate generally the
08:15
course of life is considered to be approximately 84 years or 1008 cycles of
08:23
the moon the cycles of the moon and our body is very directly connected only
08:28
because our mother's bodies were in sync with the cycles of the Moon we are born
08:33
otherwise we wouldn't be born isn't it hello so a full life is considered 1008
08:42
cycles of the Moon which will approximately consider as 83 to 84 years
08:48
so if one crosses 84 it's considered a full life in this the first quarter is
08:55
the only time when it is connected to parentage after that the child must move
09:01
because energy wise you cannot connect those two lives any more so that is when
09:06
the longing if you have not created enough integrity within yourself the
09:11
longing for another body multiplies even though the hormonal phase may be higher
09:17
between 15 to 20 the longing to bind and bond with somebody increases after 21
09:24
years of age because unknowingly you have you're like a satellite who fell
09:30
off the main mother you come off the motherboard now you want to attach to
09:36
something unless you find some integrity this is why between twelve and eighteen
09:40
one must do lot of sudden or to strengthen the body so that you don't
09:45
desperately bind yourself to something or somebody
09:48
you must consciously if you wish to take a partner it must be a conscious process
09:53
if it's a compulsive process then you will pay the price for it this is not a
09:59
question of morality it is not that this is sin that is sin a question is what is
10:05
your priority in your life if your priority is to make this life rise to a
10:11
higher possibility then you must be conscious if you want to somehow live
10:15
and go okay
10:27
Thank You Sokka I'm sorry if I discouraged her you just answered my
10:36
questions of good thank you so much it
10:41
said well we all believe our life is precious and I believe that our body is
10:47
equally precious after we die when we die should I should we allow our body to
10:53
be burned over it or to utilize by someone else who is in the need of organ
11:00
is this against the law of nature what are your views on organ donation well
11:06
this question will not be relevant in under four to five years because
11:10
everybody will have stem cell organs growing whatever they need you can have
11:16
a spare heart growing in case somebody breaks it and or a liver a kidney or
11:24
whatever you need even they're saying you can even grow joints at some point
11:29
that you can have spare knees ready in case these wear out immediately so if
11:36
you do not know this in most you know big hospitals in the last 1012 years
11:44
time for most children they're preserving a piece of the umbilical cord
11:49
as a part of the stem cell think you should know because we can manufacture
11:55
almost any organ you want so this question will become irrelevant
11:59
technology is moving about donating organs well see giving away actually
12:09
somebody was asking me a question in either by the film personality was
12:15
asking say I don't love anybody that I'm willing to give my kidney to them for me
12:21
loud means I can take her out and she's nice and I can take her out for dinner I
12:26
can do this and that with her but I'm not willing to give my kidney to her so
12:31
is it wrong so you're asking should I give my kidney to somebody not
12:36
necessarily people whom you love but just anybody let them benefit after
12:39
I'm dead that's a question see there are many aspects to this but first of all if
12:49
you already do not know this there is a sinister business going on in the world
12:54
very sinister business particularly in Vietnam Cambodia and some parts of
13:02
Thailand organs are being stolen from live people
13:10
once you campaign for organ donation organ donation inevitably you will drive
13:16
the societies there because it she's you may be biology but she is in commerce if
13:22
you talk about organ donation she will see how to make a business out of it yes
13:28
isn't it somebody will look at it as an enterprise already it's become a
13:33
sinister enterprise in many African countries this is happening people are
13:39
held down and their organs are stolen this is happening in a scale which may
13:46
not be very large scale but a scale which is a great concern to that extent
13:52
it's gone so if somebody needs an organ and somebody wants to donate fantastic
14:01
what a wonderful just channel but at the same time I am NOT for campaigning for
14:08
organ donation because you cannot control it once you create the market
14:13
you cannot control the supply they will somehow find the supply isn't it if you
14:20
don't die in time they'll help you yes they will if not enough kidneys are
14:28
coming they will make sure enough people are dying today you don't you don't
14:33
think they'll do it they will do it so it is not good to campaign for organ
14:39
donation so many people have come to me saying Sadhguru you must campaign for
14:43
organ donation I said I won't do this because I know the consequence first of
14:47
all what you need to understand is all our body parts and
14:51
congenitally something wrong most of the time all our body parts are designed for
14:57
a lifetime yes designed for a lifetime why don't we
15:03
teach people to live responsibly in such a way that our organs last for a
15:09
lifetime we want people to drink and rot their liver and then we want somebody
15:16
else's live on this this should not be encouraged I'm saying people should
15:22
understand if I rot my liver I will die yes or no this understanding is not
15:28
there everybody think it's okay my Rivlin liver is rotting I will get hurts
15:33
it's going in this direction we should not encourage that if you ask me so this
15:42
happened you know when Shankaran Pillai was supposed to speak in the Rotary Club
15:47
in Shillong heard of Shankaran Pillai the famous guard he was supposed to
15:58
speak in Rotary Club but these Rotary Club meetings are after
16:02
7:00 p.m. but by 7:00 p.m. usually Shankaran Pillai is foolish lost so you
16:10
got foolish lost then he came all drunk to the Rotary Club and this meeting was
16:17
about organ donation you know Rotary clubs are usually
16:22
involved in these things so his friend a local guy who was supposed to introduce
16:29
Shankaran Pillai to the club said people said what is this this man has come
16:35
fully drunk so he said he is not an ordinary drunk because he is so
16:43
committed to organ donation he's preserving his organs in alcohol
16:57
you want to preserve it's most important that every human being takes this
17:04
responsibility the organs that are given to me by nature will last for a lifetime
17:10
something happened some ailment accident something else happened such a thing
17:15
happens always we can seek but this entire culture of organ donation or gana
17:23
people are looking for a cause this is the problem if you campaign too much for
17:28
this this will become a sinister possibility fortunately the stem cells
17:32
are coming and that could change everything thank you so cool said Guru
17:44
ji this is very common in my college and it is true about me and also my friends
17:51
so I'm in love with a girl and and what happens is that I don't have the courage
18:02
to talk to her and this is a like self doubt that I have I think that I don't
18:08
deserve her so what to do on this regard
18:16
you are in love with a girl or you've fallen in love with a girl actually I
18:22
fall in this happened before he became a drunk he was the Shillong University
18:33
Shankaran Pillai and he was doing his PhD so one day he went to his mentor
18:45
professor and said sir I need your help and something very important so the
18:55
professor said yes that's why I'm here please tell me then he named the college
19:00
beauty and he said sir I am completely in love with her I need your help on
19:07
this what do you mean you need my help I am NOT here to help you on those kind of
19:14
matters I am here for academic purposes he said no sir I'm really 50% successful
19:21
you just need to help me with other 50% he asked what is 50% success anyway he
19:29
said I'm completely in love with her and she doesn't know the other 50% you must
19:35
help me so just enjoy the love affair because
19:46
because now it's totally in your control if you also bring her into the picture
19:52
now she will take charge of it
20:02
I'm not saying you should not fall in love with somebody but don't be in a
20:07
rush to live at this stage in your life see how to build yourself up into a
20:12
worthwhile life then things will come to you in a certain way if you rush into
20:17
life too early then the you know other aspects of growth will get it'll get
20:26
stunted because you got emotionally entangled now you immediately the girl
20:32
says I'm going to come with you tomorrow morning then immediately you have to
20:36
find some job you not completed your engineering you will find one auto
20:39
rickshaw to drive all right all these things will happen Lau does all these
20:45
things to you so just you are having a great love affair just enjoyed don't
20:51
tell her
20:59
so guru I think he also kind of you know wanted to know about self-doubt that he
21:03
has although the context was that but he's primarily asking about self-doubt
21:07
say about this is not self doubt the doubt is about her how she will respond
21:16
that is the doubt somewhere when it comes to yourself the question of
21:26
whether I am good enough for something not good good enough for something you
21:33
should not worry about that you must just see everyday how you can be a
21:38
better human being than the way you are right now and then the world the way it
21:43
responds tells you whether you're good enough or not it's not for you to think
21:49
whether see this is why there is an examination at the end of the year why
21:52
because you may think you're a great engineer but the examination results
21:58
tell you so this also is like that you may think I'm a hero but well the girl
22:06
she has our opinions so instead of that see how to make yourself better in how
22:13
many ways not just the way you look because your looks will be ignored after
22:20
some time you have to make yourself better how to make yourself better at
22:25
least you're trying to make yourself into a good engineer that's a good idea
22:30
another thing is well just see better means what what is it one thing that
22:39
always draws people what is it that one thing that makes a person look wonderful
22:44
is it is not the shape of your nose or the point of your chin or your hairstyle
22:50
or something a joyful face is always a beautiful face isn't it
23:00
your nose can be like this it doesn't matter joyful face is always a beautiful
23:06
face do that one thing maybe she will fall in love with you this this rise and
23:15
shine if you rise and shine everybody will look in that direction isn't it
23:19
time to sing sing a song we can drain your Schwann this one song that may make
23:28
her fall in love should soon join this school official for singing horses thank
23:43
you Sadhguru next question is rather a controversial and you have also
23:46
addressed this but we are putting it again here because it is quite relevant
23:51
as is known that the majority of population in the state of makalah is
23:55
thought of beefeaters but the government banning consumption
23:58
of beef in mainland india people have an idea that the government is trying to
24:02
control the very food habits of the citizens of a democratic nation if beef
24:07
is to be banned because of religious reasons isn't it against the idea of
24:11
secularism and if it is for the environmental point of view as you said
24:15
why not mutton ban or chicken ban which are also reasons for greenhouse gas
24:19
emission well let me change one aspect of the question nobody ever uses
24:26
mainland India that's only mainland China
24:37
this this is also mainland India only it is just that which is being
24:44
misunderstood now because of certain things that have happened is when Jerrod
24:50
lal nehru talked about building roads and bridges and Industry across the
24:55
country including dams because at that time we thought dams were the biggest
25:00
things we could do now our ideas have we walked into
25:03
something else when there were plans for northeast he was advised that don't
25:09
touch northeast it is pristine nature and tribal cultures do not try to
25:15
modernize and destroy this it's best it is left like that so initially it was a
25:23
conscious decision not to touch northeast because people who are
25:27
beautiful they were living in their own ecosystems there was no net to bring
25:32
simply cars and trains and airplanes and make them like the rest of the world
25:37
they were doing great by themselves but later on development started happening
25:42
in unplanned ways little bit little bit at that time they should have decided
25:46
but because the same party was in power they respected the decision that jlr
25:53
Nehru made when he made the decision it was a conscious decision after that it
25:58
was just an emotional stuff for which nothing northeastern region has kind of
26:03
paid a little bit of price I wouldn't say it's a price because living in
26:10
pristine nature without all the rubbish that you see in the rest of the cities I
26:15
think it's a great thing but but today because of connectivity because
26:23
everybody is watching on the television on the internet how big cities are how
26:28
New York City is how London is how something else is when you did not see
26:32
any of those things I think people here we're doing fine by themselves that way
26:39
the only country which has made a conscious decision like this and
26:43
successfully going with that is probably Bhutan everybody else has succumbed to
26:48
Western ways of life and they think we also have to be
26:51
like that now it's unstoppable everywhere including northeast here if
26:56
you do not know some 1215 thousand kilometers of highway is being planned
27:01
once that happens and our India will be driving all over North East okay I went
27:09
to Ladakh and you won't believe I'm initiation for the yoga day thousands of
27:16
motorcycles all kinds of people who have no idea how to balance on two wheels
27:21
also on motorcycles everybody renting a motorcycle getting a
27:26
license right there there is a motorcycle rental next to that will
27:30
organize licenses for you right there instant license and hundreds and
27:35
hundreds of motorcycles everywhere it is no more than Ladakh pristine Ladakh that
27:40
it was simply tourists and traffic jams on the mountains unbelievable
27:45
well that's going to happen to you because you ask for development because
27:51
this is the kind of development that's happening in the world unfortunately
27:55
everything in excess and in 15-20 years it'll happen this government has decided
28:00
to put railways Airways and roadways and everything so we can think it's
28:08
development it is also a certain loss to the country because tribal cultures will
28:13
be totally lost pristine forests will be lost
28:17
everywhere there will be picnickers okay not wildlife enthusiasts or something
28:24
picnic people will be all over the place so having said that now the reason why
28:33
it is banned in many major states in the thing and at the same time they have not
28:39
touched this here is in those states there is a huge emotion about that
28:44
democracy you talked about secularism democracy is always about considering
28:49
the concerns of the people when there is such a big emotion it's better you take
28:55
that into thing and everybody thinks this law came in the last four years no
28:59
this law has been there since 1950 so this has been the way we have been
29:04
running the Huntley we make a law and we don't have
29:08
the courage to implement it now some hothead on the street he
29:14
decides to enforce the law when mob tries to enforce the law it will happen
29:19
in cruel ways it will happen in ridiculous and in all Keiko ways of
29:24
doing things so this is something we must decide if we make a law do we have
29:31
the courage to implement the law do we have the means to implement the
29:34
law otherwise better there is no such law so now in the major states if you do
29:40
not implement it there will be backlashes they'll be violence so
29:44
implemented there is some kind of grouse happening a small group of people it's
29:49
better to manage them rather than creators on the street battleground okay
29:54
you don't want that right now because we are poised for economic development
29:57
everything is being done to see social unrest doesn't happen so here
30:02
traditionally see even in India the is a very gender biased law you can only not
30:10
slaughter a female cow you can slaughter a bull you can slaughter a buffalo look
30:16
at this gender discrimination you can slaughter me but not you only cow
30:24
protection because in this culture this a pastoral culture where we have an
30:30
understanding now it's different but in the past if there is a bad agricultural
30:35
yeah if there is a famine we used to have serious famines in this country if
30:40
there is a famine if I have two cows in my house my children will live you don't
30:46
have cows your children will die this is a wisdom stuck in people's minds
30:51
so when because of my cow my children lived I worship this cow because this is
30:57
the source of my life and my progeny so there is a very deep engagement with the
31:04
cow in the sense when I was growing up we were never fed milk from multiple
31:09
cows that specific count it has a name and every day they will take you there
31:15
and you at least give something you know one banana one living
31:20
grass or something to the cow and always my grandmother will be saying that this
31:24
is the year like your mother you're drinking milk from this cow you
31:27
must be always grateful to this cow this kind of thing like there's a huge
31:31
emotion between you on that cow because you're drinking its milk biologically
31:34
and emotionally you're connected you are not drinking daily milk which is million
31:40
cows and buffaloes and we don't know what else so this has been the culture
31:45
because of that because we have drunk the milk of this cow if we tomorrow want
31:51
to eat the cow that is considered cannibalism not cow slaughter I want you
31:56
to understand this it is deep rooted in us because like our mother this cow gave
32:01
us milk tomorrow how to kill it and eat it up this is considered cannibalism and
32:07
we said you never kill the cow but they allowed other big animals to be killed
32:12
also and this methane gas you're talking this is not a problem in India this is
32:17
United States problem all the statistics and stuff we just import it from the
32:21
West and we think it's like this in United States how the cows are kept is a
32:26
completely different matter if you go into a kettle thing it's
32:29
something you must go and see then you will not ask this question again you
32:33
must go and see there will be half a million or 1 million cattle in one place
32:38
there will be not a speck of green because so many animals moving full of
32:43
done and everything all in sheds sometimes they move them out for
32:47
exercise and again back on the highway side if they're there a kilometer away
32:52
the kind of sounds they are making it will churn your stomach because they're
32:58
intelligent enough to know that they're going to be slaughtered you must see the
33:02
screams of the cows once you go there never again you will touch anything
33:07
because it is basically it will churn up something within you why I am saying
33:13
this is it covers an animal where I have seen this personally somebody that I
33:18
knew this is a lady she named this cow as Lakshmi it always was with her 30
33:25
years that cow has become very old but still with her this lady died at 87
33:31
this cow came and just stood in front of the house did not move from there
33:37
refused to eat today's later it just fell dead right there and I have seen
33:43
cows if you are very attached to it enduring some grief you are not even
33:47
with the car curry somewhere else but it knows tears are flowing from the cow's
33:52
eyes so because it has human emotions we said you cannot kill this because it
33:58
is exhibiting human emotion if you kill it it amounts to cannibalism when there
34:04
is such a sensitivity if you say in front of my house you will slaughter
34:08
obviously there is going to be a problem so in this part of the country there is
34:14
no such sentiment so they did not press the law I think it's a very sensible
34:18
thing to do isn't it but every doctor in the world is telling you red meat is the
34:25
source of every goddamn disease you have so you better change
34:36
it is not it is not a religion it's a certain sense of humanity humanity finds
34:44
expression in various kinds of aesthetics this is our aesthetic what
34:50
about the minority is living in those areas at school they can eat whatever
34:55
else they want but when it is imposed the ban is imposed in play they cannot
35:00
suppose I like to eat you you denying me my food
35:06
I enjoy human flesh how can you push a law against it I'm
35:12
asking no no I'm saying see you cannot eat a human being why because it's a
35:30
human being now we drank the milk of the cow we have
35:35
shared emotions with the cow we don't see it as separate because in the
35:39
villages the cow lives in your house there is no barn somewhere it lives with
35:44
you in the same house so what is grown up with you lived with you shared life
35:50
with you you don't suddenly kill and eat it then you can as well eat your mother
35:54
what's the problem I'm saying what's the problem it's good food so I have taste
36:01
for human flesh how can you stop me from eating it don't start such an argument
36:06
it's not good moving on to next question this was the most frequently asked
36:19
question by the youth of our University we feel parents today are becoming
36:26
liberal with their children in many aspects however when it comes to inter
36:32
caste and Inter religion marriage people are still Orthodox and we draw people
36:38
draw a rigid line that children cannot cross is it merely because of the fear
36:45
of society as the saying goes subscibe our Road catalog so as a youth what can
36:51
we do to convince our parents and bring them out of this social fear see ya
36:59
the fear may not be about just what somebody says we must understand the
37:05
caste system for what it is well before I say that I want you to understand this
37:13
I never ever asked anybody what is your caste because doesn't even occur to me
37:18
in my mind so I am against Inter caste marriages because somebody will take
37:24
this one sentence and make me into trouble but I keep doing this always
37:28
because it's by intent I am against Inter caste marriages because first of
37:34
all why the hell do you identify with the caste and then try to do in terror
37:49
if when I was young if I wanted to marry somebody I won't even bother what the
37:55
cast is I never asked actually this happened to me my wife I never asked
38:00
what sir cast I just came home one day and told my father and marrying this
38:05
girl he asked who is she I said her name I only knew her pet name
38:13
I didn't know her full name because that's what I called her then he asked
38:19
who is her father I said I don't know you know what you don't know the
38:24
father's name you'll marry her I said I wish to marry only the girl I don't wish
38:35
to marry her father nor his property nor is kundan or anything I'm just matting
38:42
the girl what caste are they I said I don't know what you don't know the caste
38:46
I said we don't know because except what people have told me you and I don't feel
38:53
my caste anywhere I won casted myself completely am not casting anything so I
38:59
didn't check her cast either then somebody came you know once this happens
39:05
in the family all the uncles and aunts and others you know they are all
39:09
warriors they all get into the act they came and said we don't even drink water
39:15
in their house their caste is like that I said did they invite you
39:26
they have not invited you to come home only after they invite you whether you
39:33
want to drink coffee you will see right now they have not invited you not i am i
39:38
planning to take you to their house not am i planning to go to their house
39:42
I am just Manning the girl they couldn't believe it I said oh yeah how how can we
39:51
do this we our families can't sit together their caste I said I never said
39:55
you I'm inviting you to my wedding either so I just declared to my wife I
40:04
said you're my wife that's it she said this all no witness no no arrangement no
40:10
grand garland I said see no bloody witness can ever hold me to anything
40:16
when I say something that's it I will not go back on it I said I'm married to
40:22
you this is it so I just came in announced
40:24
everybody I'm married they said when where how there's not your business this
40:31
is my wife then that's it so I'm saying first of all why do you
40:37
cast yourself and then were you do inter-caste yourself not necessary but
40:42
there is a social situation that is in this country why this caste system stuck
40:48
on like disease this was the only means of transmitting skills suppose your
40:54
father is a goldsmith now he will marry you only to your goldsmith another
41:01
goldsmith because right from your childhood you have helped the goldsmith
41:05
carrying this and that you know how to handle it suppose he puts you suddenly
41:10
married shoot your blacksmith you will be lost in that house and you know
41:14
nothing about it because knowledge was transmitted only through the family tree
41:20
today we don't know what his father is but now he has become an engineer we
41:25
don't know what your parents are now you're becoming a bio thing because we
41:28
have institutions which transmit knowledge when there were no such
41:32
institutions family was the only institution transmitting knowledge so we
41:36
didn't want to corrupt that so we maintain that now
41:40
that is irrelevant one part of the caste system has become irrelevant another
41:45
reason why people are taking sticking to the caste is because there is no social
41:49
security in the country if tomorrow something goes wrong with
41:54
your life okay you married some strange boy and if something went wrong with
41:58
your life you fell ill or he fell ill your accident happened something
42:01
happened now the only people you can fall upon is your clan you go knock on
42:08
somebody else's door they won't open their door you have to go to your caste
42:12
if you say I belong to this caste they'll say come we'll do something for
42:16
you so this is the Social Security you still have so in the in urban areas it
42:22
may not matter because you have insurance and this and that but in rural
42:26
areas if you just break away from your caste completely you are completely on
42:31
your own if something goes wrong there is nobody going to stand up for you so
42:35
this is the social security system don't try to worry about this destroying
42:40
caste system by interment inter caste all this if you create a proper
42:44
universal social security system caste will die a natural death
42:49
nobody has to kill it it will just go


North-Eastern Hill University, Shillong 9-28-2018 [Part-3]

00:00
Sadhguru this is the final question of the round in an interview with current
00:04
show her you have to find organized religion as madness but the matter of
00:08
fact is that the majority of the people in the planet do identify themselves
00:12
with one religion or the other and in the process they create some kind of
00:16
wall between those of different faiths so what can we as youth do to break that
00:22
wall and help everybody live United I see people divide themselves in so
00:32
many ways as you just now said mainland India will pardon you because you're
00:40
from Nepal mainland China mainland India and not like that just India now the
00:51
thing is if it a whole lot of people they are not in such a level of
00:57
consciousness right now if it comes to me I'm like this I have no struggle
01:06
within me for anything so I don't look up because I know the planet is round
01:11
and it's spinning if I look up I am looking up in the wrong direction but
01:16
for somebody else who is fearful somebody else who's not figured their
01:20
life for them just believing there is somebody up there gives them solace
01:27
they're going to open the psychiatry department but you will see psychiatry
01:34
is very inefficient because you can treat only one patient at a time and you
01:41
need a lot of furniture like this you need a couch you know but now God is
01:49
holding your hand don't worry a whole lot of people they're managing the
01:53
psychological balance which true or false is not your question the question
01:59
is whether it's working or not working it's working and one level yes or no a
02:04
whole lot of people will be cracked up if they don't have something that they
02:11
believe they're holding on to if that is not there
02:13
they will crack up because not everybody is on a spiritual path not everybody is
02:18
so organized within themselves that they will handle things out of their own
02:23
conscious intelligence they need something to lean on
02:28
why people are leaning on upon each other why people are making see freedom
02:35
is a most valued thing in the world but still most people are trying to build
02:39
bondages among themselves why they need somebody to lean on isn't it
02:44
so when all these people fail they need somebody else to lean on
02:50
so what you call as religion he is a certain belief system belief is a very
03:00
inexpensive and efficient psychiatry it helps people to stay most people who
03:09
lose their mind if there is nothing to fall back on isn't it so but as a human
03:16
being evolves from belief to knowing then it'll naturally go away the entire
03:23
moment that I am doing right now he is a moment from religion to responsibility
03:30
what this means is religion means God's will when is it God's will when things
03:38
go wrong yes it's also an insurance for failure when things don't work out God's
03:46
will otherwise failure will poke you and poke
03:49
you on poke you in case she doesn't respond it's God's right now yes
03:56
no it's her will now if you take away this aspect from people a whole lot of
04:06
people will get confused and suffer immensely
04:09
you must evolve with society from religion to responsibility what this
04:13
means is that you are willing to see that your destiny is your making it take
04:22
a certain amount of organization for an individual human being to come to that
04:26
in this culture forever we have thought that because in this culture there is no
04:32
Durr God anybody there never been all the people that you worship in this
04:37
culture of people who walked this geography where the ramakrishna shiva
04:41
anybody you think they all walk this land at some time and they were not even
04:45
a super success now did they do anything superhuman they did not drop from the
04:52
sky they did not fly in the air they did not walk upon the water nothing
04:56
gradually daily all kinds of troubles in their life daily more trouble than any
05:03
of you will go through all kinds of things you look at Rama's life is still
05:07
having real estate issues
05:17
so even in during his life we lost his kingdom went to the jungle lost his wife
05:24
went and got her back again lost her almost killed his children then he never
05:29
saw his wife she means a lot to him if he was that kind that if his wife was
05:36
kidnapped he found a local girl immediately I mean he is a king he could
05:40
have found another wife all right any man would have found but he walked
05:44
nearly 3,000 kilometers down to get her back for the war burnt really burnt a
05:50
beautiful city and got her back and again lost her this is not a successful
05:55
life but the reason why we are bowing down to him he's there's no matter what
06:01
life did to him he stayed free he did not become resentful he did not become
06:06
hateful he did not even become reactive to anything nor did he become a recluse
06:14
he participated fulfilled all his duties whatever he has to do all his
06:19
responsibilities are the king he has personal grief but that personal grief
06:25
never became a part of his consciousness or his actions in the world to such an
06:31
extent when he came back after killing Ravana he wanted to go for one year of
06:37
penance in Himalayas his brother Lakshmana asked are you crazy
06:42
this man kidnapped your wife and after so much difficulty we got her back and
06:47
now you want to do penance for having killed him
06:50
so Rama said he had 10 qualities nine are all treacherous qualities I don't
06:59
mind killing them but one aspect of him was he was a great devotee unfortunately
07:06
I had to kill the devotee also for that I want to do one year of penance because
07:12
the man is free from all these things when one is free in this culture we say
07:18
he's attained to Mukti or moksha the highest value has always been liberation
07:23
not not heaven always liberation freedom has
07:28
been the highest value because of that we worship Him look up to him we didn't
07:34
say he is the God he is somebody worth emulating because he represents freedom
07:40
no matter what this is something you must understand you cannot decide what
07:46
life throws at you but what you make out of it is hundred
07:51
percent yours isn't it
07:54
so the important thing is that you must grow if you want to grow with God please
08:00
grow with God if you want to grow without God you grow without God but you
08:03
must grow that is you must grow towards your ultimate freedom that's important
08:09
so what you call as religion never existed in this land various kinds of
08:16
spiritual processes and anybody who emulated who who was worthy of emulation
08:22
we started worshipping all of them today a lot of people are worshipping
08:26
Tendulkar as cricketing God she's very appropriate for this culture if somebody
08:31
excelled in something beyond what you considered normally as human we say he's
08:37
a devil okay Arjuna is worshipped as a you know yesterday I was at the award
08:42
ceremony origin of origin about for everybody simply because he excelled in
08:48
archery in a certain way now we're saying he's actually they were okay so
08:53
if you excel in your microbiology we will say you are a microbiology this is
08:58
happening in the world see here we are doing it culturally but is it not
09:03
happening everywhere people are almost Worshipful about Albert Einstein one day
09:07
people are almost Worshipful about Matt McGann D on day people are almost
09:12
Worshipful about Nelson Mandela aren't they because when some human being
09:16
exhibits certain qualities which is about about what we considered as a
09:22
normal human being then we bow down to that this is not the here it is
09:27
consciously done but in every culture people will naturally do it isn't it so
09:32
so this is a religion less godless land here we always told you your life is
09:39
your karma did we this means your life is your making
09:45
there is no opor while I'm managing you this is the only culture only thing is
09:51
does it mean to say I created the whole universe obviously it was here before
09:55
you and me came so there is a dimension of intelligence making this happen where
10:00
is it
10:04
what did you
10:09
what do you have a luncheon sorry breakfast party see does she look like a
10:18
chapati she eats a chapati and she becomes like this there is an
10:26
intelligence within you which can make a chapati into human being a sort of a
10:31
simple dough wheat flour and chapati into such a complex machine yes or no is
10:40
there an intelligence like that here or not this is the biggest mistake we made
10:44
in the world people went about describing God means love all the people
10:50
who lack love in their life they said God is love all the people who are
10:54
fallen they said God is compassion all the people who are hungry they said God
10:58
is food but if you don't subscribe to any of these things if you open your
11:05
eyes and pay attention to everything in this universe if you look at this flower
11:09
if you look at this leaf if you look at everything you look at a tiny and how it
11:14
is made if you pay enough attention there is a tremendous intelligence isn't
11:19
it hello but nobody said God is intelligence this is the biggest mistake
11:24
we have made the reason for human stupidity is just this we did not
11:30
identify divine as the highest level of intelligence but that's what it is if
11:35
you don't believe anything if you just pay attention to creation do you see an
11:40
intelligence beyond your brains everywhere in every leaf every flower
11:45
every hand every micro organism yes or no you're looking at your microscope
11:52
yes do you see tremendous things right there yes if you pay attention to the
11:59
universe including your own body you would see there is a phenomenal
12:04
intelligence functioning right here isn't it if you identify with that
12:09
intelligence if this intelligence which can make chapati into a full-fledged
12:15
human being like this if you even find conscious access to even one drop of
12:21
that intellect you will live magically isn't it not
12:26
miserably some miserable people are always looking how to fall back on
12:31
something they need a fallback and those who may have made a misery out of their
12:36
life they want to go to heaven yes those who have made a hell out of themselves
12:44
they want to go to heaven but I am asking you is it true that all human
12:51
experience is coming from within or outside coming from within what's coming
12:57
from within you must happen the way you want it yes or no what's coming from
13:03
outside I cannot determine because somebody else something else throws
13:07
those things at me what's coming from within me must happen my way isn't it so
13:12
what's coming from you I cannot decide we don't know what you will do but
13:17
what's coming from within me must happen my way if this one thing if you take
13:22
charge you will live a blissed-out life when you are blissed-out
13:26
you will not want to go to heaven only those who have made a hell out of
13:30
themselves want to go to heaven so religion has come out of this belief
13:35
systems simply because of the ignorance of how life is made so the entire moment
13:41
is to move people from religion to responsibility this does not mean we
13:47
want to destroy some religion no a whole lot of people right now only need that
13:52
belief if you take away that belief they will be shattered
13:55
yes or no it is like when you were a child and if you can say answer this
14:03
question when you were a little girl or a little boy what did you play with a
14:08
toy no do you remember any one important thing usually in the West it's all teddy
14:15
bear or something like this you had a teddy bear you had a teddy bear when you
14:21
had the teddy bear and hugged it and walked around it meant a world isn't it
14:26
at that time if I came and snatched the teddy bear and took it away probably you
14:31
would be scarred for life isn't it so for always you would
14:35
remember this man came and to my teddy bear hurt deeply but since then
14:40
you have grown up do you remember where the teddy bear went no somewhere as you
14:46
grow up religion should fall off like that if you take it away it's going to
14:54
shatter people it's not good to do that because it's is serving a certain
14:58
purpose it is serving a very important purpose in human societies you can't
15:04
just take it away if people grow out of it it's wonderful
15:07
but this doesn't mean you become an atheist see there is no difference
15:12
between an atheist and a theast at East believes something that he does not know
15:17
in a positive way an atheist believes the same thing in a negative way both of
15:24
them are not sincere enough to admit we don't know actually you do not know
15:29
hello there were two brothers there were two brothers little boys highly
15:39
energetic boys when young boys are very energetic they're in constant trouble so
15:47
they are always into some mess parents are very embarrassed low carbolic oh
15:54
very embarrassed about their children because everybody is discussing their
15:59
children so they want to fix them but you know you know how to reproduce but
16:06
you don't know how to fix them does anybody know know if you have the
16:12
necessary love and commitment you can wait out their problems
16:17
otherwise it will freak you children will freak you yes they do so they
16:24
decided to take these boys to the local parish priest because together they are
16:31
strong they decided to take the younger boy first separately so they took the
16:36
young boy made him sit in the priests office and the left the boy was sitting
16:41
the priest came she all this needs a certain drama
16:47
though as it doesn't work long robes and a serious face a very grave face and he
16:53
looked at the boy and walked up and down and up and down for effect the boy said
16:59
they're doing the ping-pong act then the priest thought of a strategy if I'd
17:07
remind this little fellow that God is within him all his mischief will go said
17:14
this is the whole problem in the world people who never raise children they
17:18
have fantastic ideas those who have raised children they know none of the
17:24
damn ideas work so he thought up this strategy and suddenly with the booming
17:35
voice you asked where is God the boy was bewildered he looked all over because he
17:40
must be somewhere in the free surface
17:43
then the priest saw he's not getting the point so he leaned on the table pointing
17:50
at the little boy where is God he's giving him a clue God is within you
17:54
where is God the boy looked even more bewildered and looked under the table
18:01
then he saw his not getting it so he walked around the table tapping on the
18:07
little boy's chest asked where is God he's clearly giving a clue where he is
18:11
the boy just got up and bolted out of the room ran to the place where his
18:18
elder brother was severe in some deep trouble the elder brother asked why what
18:26
happened he said they've lost their God and they think we did it
18:39
I'm not taking away anything from you when you say I believe something you
18:45
must understand you made up something for a certain convenience as long as it
18:50
serves that convenience it's fine but if you're stretching it beyond that point
18:55
to divide humanity you better thank you so much Sadhguru now we shall move on to
19:09
the next session that is media social media questions that we have received
19:14
the questions will also be displayed on the screen and also Abhijit will read
19:18
them out so as we have a very limited time so we'll be going through only one
19:25
question so this question we got it from red red FM campaign so they came and
19:32
they asked some questions to the students and this question was asked by
19:36
a mongoose east sorry and she asks why do people from north-east india feels
19:44
alienated from the mainland india
19:55
well as I told you earlier it was a well-intentioned plan which went bad
20:02
it was intention was not to disturb the tribal culture not to disturb the nature
20:08
but somewhere after 20 years when we saw people are aspiring for something else
20:16
we should have changed the plan but in India changing plan takes a long time so
20:23
now it's changing I think you will not feel a limited in another five years you
20:29
will not feel alienated you will feel invaded by all kinds of people
20:34
once the highways are laid all over railways are laid all over so you will
20:39
not be complaining you will be rivers complaining but stop calling India
20:44
mainland India it was wonderful interacting with you we now open the
20:55
floor to the audience audience anyone who has question to Sadhguru can
21:00
now ask question to him okay I think you all can hear me the thing is that key we
21:17
are sitting in the temple of knowledge and we are the strieber or seekers of
21:20
knowledge your best quest about knowledge but the question here is how
21:25
much knowledge should we attain I mean knowledge is not sufficient but whatever
21:31
quantity that we attain but more important enemy knowledge should be
21:34
understanding and then the implementation of knowledge in India
21:37
basically now education system we see the stresses upon the imparting the
21:41
knowledge whether the whether the person understands it or implements it is
21:46
invalid so how can we improve upon that so well education both school and
21:55
college education as we know it right now could become absolutely irrelevant
22:00
in this world in the next 10 to 15 years time maybe in India it will take 20 to
22:06
25 years time but all the knowledge that you acquire
22:11
in a matter of 25 years of education normally 20 years of education or so
22:18
even if you come out with a PhD it's approximately 25 years of education in
22:25
this 25 years after you PhD what you know in another 10-15 years a simple
22:31
gadget which is smaller than your phone will know more than you so this form of
22:39
Education of accumulating information and thinking we are getting somewhere
22:43
will become irrelevant because once this little machine knows all this we can
22:49
program other machines which know this and it will also implement it they are
22:55
looking at right now there are experiments like this going on they are
23:03
looking at how a a robotic machine right now they got a little fanciful
23:11
commercial companies they are trying to build a man or a woman who who will fool
23:16
other people that you cannot make out whether this is real or this is robotic
23:21
but it's not necessary it can be a square machine which does everything
23:25
that a human being does the aesthetics of it is not really important right now
23:30
they're trying to make it acceptable so it's late taking a long time but if you
23:34
just make it like this furniture which does everything that a human being does
23:38
now they're looking at how a machine could engineer a whole building and
23:45
order other 10 machines to build the whole building without a single human
23:49
being these experiments are already on and they were quite successful
23:54
the Honda company chairperson has promised by 2050 he will have a robotic
24:01
football team which will win the World Cup football everything that the best
24:08
players in the world know about football they will program it into that machine
24:13
that machine will move better than any football player kick the ball whichever
24:18
way you want everything so the way we are valuing
24:23
information right now if I know something information that you do not
24:28
know suddenly I am superior to you this is how our whole thing about you
24:34
know there was a time when everybody was illiterate there was one man in the
24:37
village who could read a book people would sit there gaping at him because he
24:40
can read from a paper he's saying so many things from a paper people sat
24:46
there gaping I've seen such situations people can't believe all this is there
24:50
in this book so just reading a book people acted divine people who can read
24:58
a book they're acting like they're agents of God and they all over the
25:03
world hello just because they can read a book so now it's becoming irrelevant
25:08
because everybody can read similarly when the machines can remember and see
25:14
this process of acquiring information analyzing and applying this a machine
25:21
can do better than you the Google lady knows much more than any of you yes or
25:27
no ask her anything without batting an eyelid she will say it's not even taking
25:33
two seconds to answer just like that and she's nothing what is now happening in
25:40
the next 10 years what will happen is such one cell phone like machine can
25:45
store information about everything in the universe if you wish and can act can
25:51
process and act not just you have to look for it it can process an act
25:56
looking at the situation as you can act so this dimension of Education of
26:02
gathering information analyzing and applying this will become meaningless in
26:07
a short period of time well it's a strange thing that people have been
26:14
inviting me in the last one and a half two years to speak in all kinds of
26:18
artificial intelligence conferences when initially they call me I said why me I
26:24
am NOT an artificial intelligence I'm a natural intelligence
26:27
why do you think I'm a robotic person or something they said no no the problem is
26:33
we will lose our jobs what are we supposed to do I said that means it's a
26:38
holiday isn't it fantastic hello the machine does everything isn't it
26:46
fantastic right now just look back and see 100 years ago
26:51
everybody was doing everything with a crowbar and a pickaxe now I see earth
26:55
more machines are operating now even the menial labor if you withdraw the Machine
27:01
and say use the crowbar he says no I won't do it as a machine to do it should
27:05
no human muscle what all it could do a man's muscle now is irrelevant because
27:11
the machine can do what thousand men can do it can do alone by itself similarly
27:17
what these thousand Minds can do intellects can do if one machine can do
27:22
is it not a great relief hello it's not fantastic it is so but people are
27:29
worried what will we do now this is a great possibility because once there is
27:36
no need to acquire information and process it and act smart in front of
27:40
other people all this is gone now very very important because I will
27:46
become very significant because what can you do beyond the intellect other
27:57
dimensions of intelligence if you do not explore you will feel like a dumb idiot
28:02
in front of that machine but there are things human being can do which a
28:07
machine cannot do we called you a human being we did not call an elephant as an
28:15
elephant being tiger is a tiger being an antigen and being a giraffe is a zero of
28:21
being we only called you as a human being why do you think because you are
28:29
supposed to know how to be no other creature knows how to be nor does
28:35
anybody any machine knows how to be this one creature knows how
28:40
to be so golden era for human societies are coming if they figure out what else
28:51
to do with myself when everything that you call as work is done by machines
28:56
what is the significance of being human if you realize this it's golden era if
29:02
you don't you will go crazy or you'll get drunk yes when people don't know how
29:10
to handle life one option is getting so intoxicated isn't it it gives you a
29:17
pleasant death thank you sir cool
29:30
anybody take the microphone good evening Sadhguru where are you my
29:34
name is Rhea I'm a research scholar from the dystonia University you're probably
29:39
not being able to see me because I'm talking to you from outside Oh my
29:45
question to you is regarding dealing with pure and societal pressure since
29:51
I'm a research scholar I'm involved with my study which is going to take a long
29:57
time to complete but when I look at my friends from my school and college days
30:03
they are already employed and I can see them they're going quite ahead in this
30:07
fast-paced world what I want to know from you is how do I deal with this peer
30:13
pressure and societal pressure so that there's a peace of mind at the end of
30:18
the day thank you Oh peace of mind should not be at the end of the day it
30:24
should be at the beginning of the day hello
30:33
well I was I was supposed to speak Riya we cannot see you I'm not even able to
30:38
see this chrishi in the street no I was to speak in Tel Aviv I flew out of
30:49
Atlanta in United States I'm supposed to land there mid afternoon and speak at
30:55
6:30 in the evening due to some delays in flight I ended up there at 6:00 in
31:02
the evening I landed at 6:00 6:30 is my talk I have a problem because in this 36
31:08
years I have not been late to a single event yet so today I don't want to lose
31:14
my repetition so I quickly change in the airport and rushing I'm traveling an
31:24
American airline so there is nothing edible on the plane so I'm super hungry
31:32
famished but there's no time to even grab
31:37
something so I just rushed and when I went to the venue this doesn't happen to
31:44
me at all but on that day the venue is a fine restaurant I am speaking in a very
31:49
fine restaurant that's where the meeting is I thought this is a fantastic place
31:55
to come to when you're so hungry then people have already gathered and people
32:01
are coming in some people are greeting me one man
32:04
comes to me and says Shalom I asked him what does it mean he says this is the
32:10
highest way of greeting I said well that's your opinion what does it mean he
32:16
said no no this is really the highest way of greeting all right what does the
32:20
word mean says it means peace I said why speech the highest way of greeting
32:30
unless you're born in Middle East
32:35
in south india if you come up in the morning and say pshh I say what's wrong
32:41
with you today
32:44
through it northeast also isn't it somebody comes in says pshh say how
32:50
you're not that case is something what's the matter with you
32:54
but in Middle East peace is the highest level of greeting because all the time
33:00
the people have been clashing for so long they've forgotten what is peace
33:03
note somebody has to come and greet you peace so peace is not at the end of the
33:11
day it should be at the very beginning of the day because can you enjoy your
33:18
breakfast in the morning if you're not peaceful you need not be ecstatic at
33:24
least you must be peaceful to enjoy the breakfast isn't it if you can you enjoy
33:30
your walk along the street if you're not peaceful hello can you enjoy the company
33:38
of a few people that you know in your life if you are not even peaceful you
33:42
may not be in love with them but at least if you're peaceful you enjoy
33:46
somebody's company isn't it so peace is not the final thing in your life those
33:53
people who think peace is the highest value such people will only rest in
33:57
peace
34:03
so rear don't ever think piece is at the end of the day now it's very important
34:10
you must be blissed-out if that is not possible for you right now because
34:15
you're I don't know what's your subjective research but at least you
34:21
must be peaceful even if you want to research research means something that's
34:25
already there you are trying to see it and articulate it right when you are not
34:31
peaceful you don't even see what is in front of you yes or no have you noticed
34:37
on a certain day you are all disturbed you are looking for your car keys
34:42
everywhere and the damn thing is in your hands so how will you do research if you
34:49
don't even know peace peace just means that you are in a certain state of
34:56
pleasantness of mind this is needed there is substantial scientific evidence
35:04
to show you that only when you are in a pleasant state of experience your body
35:09
and your mind functions at its best but the department is coming it should come
35:18
you know but right now people have made peace of mind the last thing in their
35:25
life it's like this if your body is Pleasant we call this help it's it's
35:35
Pleasant that's why I'm feeling healthy isn't it if it becomes very pleasant we
35:40
call it pleasure if your mind is Pleasant we call this peace it becomes
35:47
very pleasant we call it joy if your emotions become Pleasant we say you are
35:54
in love if it becomes very pleasant we say you're in compassion if your very
36:02
life energies become Pleasant we say you're in bliss if it becomes very
36:07
pleasant we say you're an ecstasy if your surroundings become Pleasant this
36:13
means success only for making surroundings Pleasant
36:19
you need the cooperation of other people but body Pleasant mind pleasant emotion
36:25
Pleasant energy Pleasant is 100% your business yes or no now your friends are
36:32
doing whatever they're doing in cities or wherever else they are but for you
36:38
one thing has happened you're in the year refuge or the comfort of a
36:43
university surrounding is already Pleasant it's a big thing
36:49
creating a pleasant surrounding why people why do you think people want to
36:55
build their own house and populate it with people who love them they want a
37:02
pleasant surrounding isn't it so hello you don't want to live with somebody who
37:08
hates you nothing wrong with that person it's just that it's not pleasant for you
37:12
isn't it you want somebody who loves you who want
37:16
somebody who is Pleasant around you and you want an atmosphere that's present
37:20
around you to do this they work for a whole lifetime here the University is
37:25
providing your Pleasant surrounding and you already said your research is going
37:30
to take a long time which is not good you must finish it as quickly as
37:35
possible but keeping your body mind emotion and energy is pleasant is 100%
37:42
your business only if you do that your research could become some kind of a
37:49
worthwhile phenomena otherwise somebody who cannot even harness peacefulness in
37:55
their mind what great things will they do if you cannot manage your mind what
38:01
big things are you going to do in your life I'm asking when you cannot manage
38:05
your mind can you man in the world please all the students you must
38:09
understand peace is not at the end of your life it must be the beginning of
38:15
your life it's a most fundamental requirement isn't it if you want to do
38:19
anything sensible even if you're not blissed-out at least you must be
38:23
peaceful less than that is bad
38:38
there's just an announcement this will be the last question we're so sorry we
38:44
are running out of time so this one will be the last question Namaskar my name is
38:53
Nick okay okay the last two questions
38:59
yes please yourself go ahead with my question for you today is as you just
39:06
said that can you hold a microphone like yes you know like like this you seen
39:09
Lady Gaga you just said that we humans should use our organs wisely so that
39:18
they last us for a lifetime but on the other hand we are seeing that today's
39:23
youth are more inclined towards drinking weed and smoking so how do you think
39:28
should we raise the consciousness towards them or how can I an individual
39:32
like me I can help at least one or two to realize that these things are not
39:37
good for health one or two make up your mind so when somebody has tasted some
39:52
pleasantness either to drug or drink or sexuality or whatever they tasted some
39:59
pleasantness evil is no pleasantness they won't have gone that way but the
40:04
pleasant misses pleasantness may suck them into destroying their body that's
40:08
another matter but the pleasantness is such that even in spite of the threat
40:15
cigarette smoking is going you know injurious to you and you show some
40:19
cancerous mouth all this but still people are self smoking because there is
40:24
a pleasantness attached to it whatever the consequence may be if you want to
40:31
get people out of the pleasantness if you try this forcefully well it's not
40:35
worked what's the point doing something forcefully or first of
40:39
all what's the point doing something that doesn't work
40:42
you must offer them a pleasantness which is beyond that you're a bit too far away
40:50
but really look at my eyes and see don't I look stoned no just look at me
40:55
properly I'm always toned I'm always tone never
41:01
touch the substance I'm asking you is it true that this body is the most
41:11
sophisticated and complex chemical factory on the planet if you were a good
41:19
CEO would you manufacture what you want when somebody gives you such a complex
41:27
machinery would you not manufacture what you want right now you're busy
41:33
manufacturing unpleasantness you may call it stress you may call it anxiety
41:38
essentially you're chemically screwed up yes or no because you don't know how to
41:47
manage this if you manage this well you will produce that kind of pleasantness
41:53
with within you you wouldn't want to touch anything else
41:56
because this life is
42:00
just being alive is such a fantastic thing but unfortunately did we teach our
42:07
youth any other way to know pleasantness we did not teach so they are post
42:12
whispers it's time this is what consciousness means that if you become
42:19
conscious how this functions naturally you will create highest level of
42:23
pleasantness for yourself isn't it if you could sit here and be absolutely
42:28
bliss doubt would you smoke then asking you would you you wouldn't smoke drink
42:36
or pop anything because there is more chemistry here then you can get in any
42:42
of those things is there or no there is more complexity of chemistry here or no
42:48
question is only have you explored this possibility
42:52
that's the only thing unfortunately we have taken to Western ways whether it
42:58
comes to health or pleasure both ways we pop whip up something to be healthy
43:05
chemicals to be peaceful chemicals to be joyful chemicals to any experience
43:11
chemicals even to grow food chemicals to filtered water purify water chemicals
43:17
something that kills all the insects and worms and germs and whatever you think
43:23
it's not killing you in some way maybe slowly that those is not enough that's
43:28
all hello dosage is not enough for the small
43:32
creatures small dose big creature big dose isn't it so for everything
43:37
chemicals so this is something this is a responsibility that's sitting on our
43:43
heads right now this is the way the world is going right now I estimate
43:50
unless we do something drastic in the next 10-15 years time I assume --it in
43:55
another 50 to 75 years time almost 90 to 95 percent of the humanity will be on
44:04
chemicals for everything to be healthy to be peaceful to be joyful already
44:11
consumption of this has gone 10,000 percent in the last 25 years yes
44:16
or no hello has it not gone up under times because other things that people
44:24
promised elsewhere are all collapsing people told you it doesn't matter you
44:29
are miserable when you go to heaven everything will become wonderful but
44:32
slowly in your mind the hope of heaven is collapsing maybe you still don't dare
44:37
to utter it but it's collapsing isn't it yes or no so you want to do everything
44:45
here but nobody taught you how to do it in such a way you can have the highest
44:50
level of pleasure and still it'll enhance your life this needs a little
44:55
application unfortunately we have not explained explored if you do not raise
45:01
human consciousness to a point where a whole lot of human beings know how to do
45:06
things within themselves if this does not come in the society 90 to 95 percent
45:11
of the population in 50 years of Plus will be on chemicals now this is not a
45:17
moral issue for me if 95 percent of the humanity goes and
45:21
chemicals the next generation that we produce will be a generation which is
45:26
much less than ourselves say the purpose of next generation is somehow at least
45:34
one knotch they must be better than us if we produce a generation which is
45:40
worse than us this is a crime against humanity we have taken humanity
45:46
backwards and once you do that afterwards we don't know what the next
45:53
one will do say this is not some prediction by looking at astrological
46:00
stuff looking at the human mind when all these machines come when this chemical
46:06
usage goes out of control you should not be surprised in another 60 to 75 years
46:13
time if a huge percentage of population is committing suicide you should not be
46:19
surprised at all because a human being doesn't need just pleasure
46:24
we need the purpose
46:27
but one thing that happens to you with chemical usages you lose a sense of
46:32
purpose your pleasure but no purpose so they're various kinds of pleasures there
46:38
are intellectual pleasures they're physical pleasures there are other
46:41
dimension of pleasures there are emotional pleasures the pleasure of
46:45
activity climbing a mountain can be a great pleasure though there is a lot of
46:49
pain in the body you should know so if we do not explore other dimensions
46:54
everybody will fall back on chemicals when this happens you will see the
46:59
suicide rate in the world will increase enormous Lee I must tell you this I grew
47:04
up in early 70s and whatever at least 12 13 if I count looking far away friends
47:14
also nearly 14 people all my age we were all like you know on motorcycles and
47:22
trekking and doing crazy things in the mountains all kinds but a whole lot of
47:27
them at least 60% of them at that time went on drugs and alcohol a few of us
47:32
stayed out of it but rest when donate heavily we were all together but they
47:37
were all half the day they were sozzled out you have to find a time to wake them
47:42
up but we were together at least 14 of them died before the reach 35 either
47:50
drugged out or they killed themselves with excessive drinking or they died on
47:55
a motorcycles riding crazy on intoxicated conditions 14 of my friends
48:01
died before they reached 35 that number is going to increase phenomenally if we
48:07
go in this direction this is a backward step in life it is not a question of
48:12
morality it is a fundamentally thing about life itself
48:16
so whether it's in agriculture or purification of water or daily
48:21
consumption of prescription medication this is rising like crazy this is not
48:25
good and this kind of and you know what you
48:30
call them recreational drugs if the chemical consumption increases humanity
48:35
will take a backward step we should not let that happen
48:39
for this the only and only solution is we
48:43
must create a conscious human being raising human consciousness is the most
48:47
important thing for this the important thing is to move everybody from belief
48:53
systems to responsibility because we have managed humanity with with
49:00
carrot-and-stick see if you do all this thing if you drink alcohol here we'll
49:06
put you in hell and torture you forever so that man stayed away from drink and
49:11
we told you don't worry in heaven rivers flow with wine we have managed humanity
49:19
like this for a long time see all of your laughing but the previous
49:22
generations genuinely believed it isn't it yes or no
49:26
so now heavens have collapsed in people's minds they are trying to do
49:31
their own little heaven here you cannot stop them unless you provide a credible
49:38
alternative thank you very much on one occasion you mentioned that there is no
49:52
purpose to life and that life in itself is a phenomena beyond any purpose
49:56
so guru my question is if there is no purpose to life and if the eventual
50:01
destination of every life is death then why do we need to live consciously and
50:05
plus Sadhguru you carry a magic of your own I have been smiling for the last 4
50:10
hours I have never done this before in my life you're a young man and you never
50:18
smiled for 4 hours what happened are you also in love with the same girl
50:28
where the girl doesn't know poor girl all right now see suppose suppose you
50:41
sit here right now and you're ecstatic
50:46
would you ask what is the purpose of life would you your experience is so
50:56
fantastic would you ask what is the purpose of life no because to be alive
51:02
is a purpose myself now life has become little burdensome you're carrying the
51:10
vegetable bag and going home what is the purpose of life you're doing things that
51:17
you don't like to do what is the purpose of life isn't it somehow it's become
51:23
burdensome when you're five six years of age when you just bubbling around
51:27
did you ask what is the purpose of life became like this what is the purpose of
51:33
life so this need for purpose has come simply because most people have not
51:39
tasted life except when the childhood when I say they have not tasted life
51:44
right now the only two things they're experiencing is their physiological
51:50
structure and psychological structure as we already went through this process
51:54
both your physiology and psychological structure have been gathered from
51:59
outside isn't it so there is no taste of life so now you are asking what is the
52:06
purpose of life because you lost the connect with life in your mind in your
52:12
intellect logically you asked this question but the life within never asked
52:18
the question isn't it even an ant wants to live try to hold it and see does it
52:24
want to live does it do everything possible to live it should know because
52:29
life is a present to itself it's a phenomena beyond all silly purposes we
52:34
can fly find in our life in our intellect whatever silly
52:39
possess we find in our mind our absolutely silly compared to the
52:44
tremendous phenomena that we call his life but right now you are just a bundle
52:50
of thought emotion ideas opinions ideologies belief systems and prejudices
52:56
no life life is not happening only thought is happening isn't it hello
53:04
because of that you are asking what is the purpose of life and you said that
53:09
and now you're saying what is the point eventually I will die so what do you
53:13
want to do you want to die today no it will come if this question becomes
53:18
very deep then the next question is to be or not to be once the question comes
53:25
we just have to provide you with two meters of rope the talk and little
53:29
encouragement that girl has to disappoint you see today you lost all
53:40
your money let's say and you say what is the purpose of life I want to die no
53:46
money what to do check with your life close your mouth hold your nose like
53:51
this and see the life within says to hell with your money man I want to live
53:57
yes
54:03
this girl she left and went away she finished her program she doesn't know
54:08
she went home my love gone what is the point of living I want to die
54:16
just hold this to hell with her let's live a cirno whenever you think the
54:25
purpose of life is lost just hold your nose for two minutes you will know this
54:31
one wants to live yes or no so life does not need a purpose because it's a
54:38
phenomena beyond all invented purposes that human beings make up thank you very
54:43
much gratitude to everybody who has been present here does that guru of course I
54:53
believe we've all learned a lot more than what we have learned in all these
54:57
years of her existence thank you so much once again sup girl thank you to the
55:00
team thank you to Mei who and everybody please come here thank you so much I'm
55:07
so sorry all your questions could not be addressed we're running out of time but
55:11
do follow his videos you will get most of your answers in them and we hope
55:16
Satguru you come to Shillong once again once or twice or many more signs yet
55:21
again and again if you stop calling me mainland I will come here
