Full Transcript:

Sadhguru: Good evening everyone.

Juhi Chawla: Good evening everyone.

Sadhguru: Nobody is saying anything (Laughter).

Juhi Chawla: (Laughs) No they are all here but they are very silent. They are all waiting for it all to begin and let me tell you… I have to confess, as I came on – before this I was quite relaxed – but as I’ve come on to the stage, my heart is beating really fast. So, (Laughs) while Guruji was praying, I was saying to myself, “I must be relaxed. This is the time. When I am with my Guru, I must be relaxed that this is it.” So, yes I will calmly begin by thanking you Sadhguruji, for giving me this opportunity to be in conversation with you. Isha Foundation, thank you very much.

Sadhguru: I… I thought when we are talking about ‘Of love and life,’ heart beating is a good thing (Laughter).

Sadhguru looks at the science of vibhuti, the various ways in which it is made, and where we should apply it on the body.

****************************************

Transcript: http://isha.sadhguru.org/blog/video/vibhuti-how-and-where-to-apply-it-on-the-body/

So when a yogi uses bhasm or vibhuthi – vibhuthi means…the word vibhuthi means one who has attained a certain capability is a vibhuthi. So ash is being referred to as that which has attained a certain capability. Ash is made in different ways. A yogi always uses ash from a cremation ground.
So all the stories that you hear about how Adiyogi always resided in the cremation ground is because (Speaks aside – you’re looking terrified Maa. You…not you are okay? Cremation ground is okay, all of us will make use of the service some day. Okay. You may not go to a restaurant, you may not go to a disco, you may not go to a your golf course but we will all go…make use of that one service, isn’t it? Yes? (Laughs) Other things by choice; this we will make use, isn’t it? So there’s nothing to be terrified about. It’s a place we have to go. So better go gracefully, isn’t it? (Laughs)

so So because this ash causes so much distance from the body and people may not be able to handle it, for house-holders, people who are holding on to their houses; (Few laugh) for house-holders we made other kind of ash. We made it from the next best thing that we did was cow-dung; we burned it and made ash. This is also good, it does certain things. It opens up your receptivity in a certain way. So we said ‘don’t apply it all over your body, just in certain points.’ If that is also difficult then we did rice bran otherwise we did sesame seed ash; like this we produce more and more benign things. But when Adiyogi used he used cremation ground ashes. Even today many yogis use only that. But you should not do, that unless you’re properly initiated into the process and you know what to do with it and if certain things happen you know what to do with it. Because the ash – today you know this a dinosaur which died a few million years ago, if they find one enough fossil, if they find one little cell there is a possibility we could clone it and bring it back to life. Yes?.

See, right now to put the example very basic – I want you to understand this, don’t react to these things – now let us say you are a man. A woman came in front of you. It is not just the eyes, the whole body responds, okay? It depends who it is, what it is. Now if you look at her in a certain way, you may think it’s your mother. If you look at her in another way you may be drawn to her sexually. If you look at her in another way you may be repelled because it reminds you of something. Reminder need not be necessarily in the mind, it’s all over the body. So now you’re walking on the street, you don’t want to get entangled in all these things. If you see anything you want to receive this in a highest possible way. So you apply vibhuthi to make those parts more sensitive so that your receptivity is in the higher dimension of life not on the lower dimension of life. When I say lower I am not talking in terms of hierarchy, high and low; I am talking geographically lower in your body, okay.

Sadhguru looks at how a child needs a friend, not a boss. If we enforce our ideas upon a child, he will lose his sense of independence, and this could result in rebelliousness later on. Once you become a parent, the most important thing is that you have to be 100% straight. You just have to protect them from the wrong influences, the rest let them free, he says. At the same time, they should remain free from your influence, he points out.

Transcript: http://isha.sadhguru.org/blog/video/parenting-raise-yourself-before-you-raise-your-kids/

Questioner: Pranam Sadhguru. One of the tasks that we are given and trying to do it is to raise the… taking care of the kid… taking care of your children at home, but we are troubled with we… whenever we to make a decision or not to make a decision get troubled with like what to consider or what not to consider. Can you give us some perspective about something that we should think while making a decision or not making a decision for the kids?

Sadhguru: Why are you making all the decisions for them?

Questioner: (Laughs) That’s the trouble. I am sure that I am not the right person to make the decision, but should that be made or not like what do I do when I need to do something?

Sadhguru: Hmm? First thing, we need to understand is children only come through you, they don’t come from you. They are not your property to be conducted whichever way you feel fit. No, they are not. If you treat them as your property or your future investment – if you treat them as such, you are committing a certain sacrilege against Creation and the Creator for which there will be a price. Simply it’ll come in the form of life or maybe it’ll come in the form of your children – the price. Yes, it’ll be very unfortunate to see that. I am saying this – a very cruel thing to say to any parent, but I am saying this because it’s a very cruel thing to parent a child. The child doesn’t need that, but please see in so many ways, you’re doing everything possible to see that he remains dependent on you in some way or the other. You are not thinking of liberating him.

So, the moment you start working, you want your children to be attached to you, isn’t it? Well, you yourself open Bhagavat Gita and read and say ‘You should not be attached, you should not be attached’, you tell your wife ‘See don’t be attached to me so that you don’t ask me when I don’t come home.’ (Laughter) But your children, you want them attached to you. So before you choose to have children, you must think about these things but if already it’s happened, now… at least now you must think about it properly, seriously. One thing is if you want to produce something little better than yourself to the world, hmm? It’s important? If you produce a child, it must be at least one step better than you, isn’t it? If the same nonsense is going to happen once again, what’s the point?

A seeker asks why there are two polarities (negative/positive, man/woman) when God is seen as one. Sadhguru explains that because of duality the possibility of life exists, that they are not opposites but are complimentary. (AO43)
