Sadhguru speaks about his experience at Kanti Sarovar, the glacial lake a few kilometers beyond Kedarnath, where Shiva, the first yogi or Adiyogi, transmitted the yogic sciences to the Saptarishis, over 15,000 years ago. He chants the Nada Brahma chant, and explains how this chant resounded across the lake in his presence. He speaks about the significance of this chant, and also explains the meaning.

Nada Brahma Vishwaswaroopa
Nada Hi Sakala Jeevaroopa
Nada Hi Karma Nada Hi Dharma
Nada Hi Bandhana Nada Hi Mukti
Nada Hi Shankara Nada Hi Shakti
Nadam Nadam Sarvam Nadam
Nadam Nadam Nadam Nadam

Translation: Sound is Brahman, the manifestation of the universe, sound manifests itself in the form of all life, sound is bondage, sound is the means for liberation, sound is that which binds, sound is that which liberates, sound is the bestower of all, sound is the power behind everything, sound is everything.

So once I went – those days, today I just came back from Kailash, from Kailash I went to Australia and back – so today when I travelled there’s a whole Jing-bang going with me, okay too much organization. We got all kinds of boots, we got clothes, we got this thing and the gloves and the works and cars and the works. You can’t imagine, too much organization. At that time I just went by myself, by local bus. Generally I sat on top of the bus and went because I didn’t want to miss the mountains. And these are crazy buses. They started four, four-thirty in the morning from Haridwar and go straight to either Gourikund or to Badrinath – they have to get there, so they won’t don’t stop anywhere. These buses used to be called as Bhook Hartal buses, that means hunger strike buses because they won’t stop anywhere for food. The driver opens up his rolled up chapatti and starts eating as he’s driving.

So you are sitting there wondering where is the lunch, where is the lunch, no lunch. So they are called Bhook Hartal. So I went and sat on top of the bus because I don’t want to miss even a bit of the mountain. And electric wires will come. He’ll just shout ‘bijlee’ which says ‘just lie down’ (Laughs) and again get up. So I went there without any kind of things. That was not the first time I went. I’ve been…I think about twenty-six years I went continuously, every year. And just my jeans and my T shirt and I had have my canvas jacket which I used to ride in South India. It’s very good for the rain but suddenly I realized when you go to the cold, the damn canvas jacket gets colder than the atmosphere. (Laughs)

So I just went up and I went to Kanthi Sarovar. It was around three thirty in the afternoon; I just sat there and I didn’t know what hit me. I just sat there with my eyes open. It’s an incredible glacier lake. It’s a…as nature it’s phenomenally beautiful. My eyes are open my mouth was shut but I could hear my voice singing loudly around me, very loudly like it’s on a big microphone and I’m just looking. It’s my voice clearly singing this chant. For the first time I’m hearing it but it’s in my voice, but my mouth is clearly shut. So I sat there listening to this and that’s what we chanted just now. What it means is sound, nad means sound – sound is not an appropriate translation but in…in English language there is no appropriate word for nad. Nad is more than sound. Probably because there is no appropriate translations in English language similar things have happened. I think – are there any bible readers? Anybody? Nobody? Oh. I think the…I’ve not read but I’ve only heard from people that it seems the first part of the bible is about ‘first there was a word and the word was with God and the word is God’ something like this. Is that right? Somebody knows? Something like that.

Sadhguru explains the significance of Kalabhairava, a fearsome aspect of Shiva, and speaks of the terrible Bhairavi Yatana in Kashi, an intense process of obliterating lifetimes of karma in a moment. He explains how the process creates such unimaginable suffering, but just for one moment right before death, after which nothing of the past remains in you. Sadhguru says, “Kalabhairava is a deadly form of Shiva. It was guaranteed if you come to Kashi, you will attain to mukti, it doesn’t matter what kind of a lousy creature you have been all your life.”

Questioner: Namaskaram Sadhguru, I want to know ‘Kalbhiarava.’ Just throw some light on it.

Sadhguru: How to throw light on darkness? Kalbhairav means the dark one, that’s one aspect of it. We shouldn’t throw light on him.

It is seen in many different ways. It is a deadly form of Shiva. When he went into a destructive mode, not of destroying this or that, of destroying time; all physical realities exist within the span of time, isn’t it? If I destroy your time everything is over. See, right now your clock is ticking lup-tup, lup-tup along with your watch something else is ticking inside right? Suppose we fast forward everything. We just shhhhch. Over… isn’t it?

So, Kalbhairav means just that. Because most people do not choose to live in a great manner, they have an aspiration. At least they want to die in a great way.

So, Kalbhairav is a deadly form of Shiva, it was guaranteed if you come to Kashi, you will attain to Mukti, it doesn’t matter what kind of a lousy creature you have been all your life.

So, all the lousy creatures started coming because they lived badly, and they want to die gloriously, only the population of the lousy multiplied. Then Shiva said, ‘The place is becoming lousy, with so many lousy people so he said, ‘There needs to be some check.’ So, he took the form of Kalbhairav, and it’s called Bhairavi Yatna. That means when the moment of death comes, for all that you have been, your whole many, many lifetimes plays out in, in a moment with great intensity and whatever pleasures and sufferings and pains that need to happen to you, will all happen, it would have spread over many lifetimes, but all that will happen to you, in a micro second but with the kind of intensity that you cannot hold. So, this is called as Bhairavi Yatna, you know what Yatna means, hmm? Yatna means ultimate suffering. It’s something that happens to you in hell, he will make it happen to you here.

So, when you want to do that kind of a job you need a right kind of costume, so he comes with the right kind of costume of looking terrible. If he looks nice, that will be very evil, you know. If somebody looks pleasant and does terrible things, that would be evil. If somebody has to do terrible things, they should at least look terrible isn’t it? So, Shiva put on the right kind of costume and became Kalbhairav to create Bhairavi Yatna for you. To create such phenomenal pain, that you have not imagined possible, but just for a moment so, that after that nothing of the past remains in you, undoing your software, painful isn’t it? But this happens, at the moment of death, you have no choice, you can’t run. Yes, you can’t run but he makes it as brief as possible. Suffering has to end quickly, we must make it super intense, then only it will end quickly. If it is mild, it goes on and on forever.

Caught Up In Time

Date: 2015-10-02 19:55:31

Is time a game of our own creation, and have we gotten entangled in it? Sadhguru speaks about how various devices we created for our convenience – time, money, technology or comforts – can turn into burdens if we are unaware.

****************************************
Transcript: http://isha.sadhguru.org/blog/video/caught-up-in-time/

Questioner: What do you think of time?

Sadhguru: See from where to where we’re jumping.

Questioner: Time is a game and …

Sadhguru: Yes, definitely, otherwise how do I tell you what time to come for dinner? If we all become timeless, how to invite you for dinner, tell me?

Questioner: We are all slaves to it.

Sadhguru: We don’t have to be slave to it. It’s a device that we used for our convenience. See if you don’t divide this day into twenty-four hours, would you know when to come here for dinner? It’s a convenience, where is the question of enslavement?

Sadhguru: See, you may come when you’re hungry, but there may be no dinner when you come. You may not feel hungry till one o’clock in the morning, that doesn’t mean it’s the dinner time here. Tch… See…

Questioner: When you bound by it

Sadhguru: See, any convenience, any convenience that we create for yourself, time or money or a car or any technology that we created for our convenience, out of our unawareness, out of our unawareness we get enslaved to it. There is nothing wrong with the device that we created. There’s nothing wrong with the car, there’s nothing wrong with the money, there’s nothing wrong with the time. You got enslaved to it out of your unawareness, that’s the problem, isn’t it? Time is not the problem, money is not the problem, car is not the problem, any other technology is not the problem. You got enslaved to it, that is the problem. Enslavement happened because you’re unaware. So your unawareness is the problem. So how to become aware? What is this awareness? Awareness is on many different levels. One can… what you’re aware of is all that exists for you. This must be understood. Right now you’re sitting here, don’t turn back and see, right now there’s a huge dinosaur standing behind you. You’re not aware of it, does it exist for you?

Questioner: No.

Sadhguru: No. So it doesn’t matter such a huge animal is standing there, you are not aware of it, so it doesn’t exist for you. So only what you’re aware of exists for you. Right now your awareness is limited to small aspect of your life. Whole aspect of spirituality means to become aware of everything that you are so that before you go, you know life, you experience life in its totality, to live totally. To live and to live totally, that’s spirituality. So that you know life in all dimensions, you don’t go just knowing a little part of your life, you want to know all of it. So if you want to know all of it, how? If we have to use an analogy, let’s say we turn down the voltage for the lights, now let’s say just one light is there, it just lights up only that much. Only that much we see. If you turn up the voltage, suddenly you’re able to see much more because the light has spread. So awareness is just like this; right now your energies, your body, your emotion, your mind, everything is functioning with certain limited voltage. You crank up the voltage, suddenly you start seeing so many things which are not in your experience till that moment. So in a way, to put it very simply, to put it technically, you need to turn up your voltage. The voltage, life voltage within you – today she was saying she doesn’t want to sleep because she wants to live. If you don’t want to sleep, “I don’t want to sleep,” will not take away sleep…
