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 answers a student’s question on reservations in education at the third Bharatiya Chhatra Sansad (Indian Student Parliament). He explains that the only way to change this is to skill India. If we do not skill India, we will kill India he says. The reservations, when they were originally brought in, were meant to be for a short period of time, and it should be reviewed every few years on a localized basis.

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

Transcript: http://isha.sadhguru.org/blog/video/are-reservations-in-educational-institutions-necessary/

Kanchan Jain (Agra/Uttarpradesh): Sir, my question is, as today, we are talking about unity on one hand and on the other, we have reservation in terms of admissions in colleges and job opportunities. (Applause) So isn’t it that it is bringing diversity in our thoughts? Because unity of the mind is the greatest necessity of the time and this is bringing in… bringing the diversity in our thoughts. So, how can we… what measures can we have to remove it?
Sadhguru: This whole reservation policy when it was envisioned, it was to be for a short period of time to correct a certain ill which had taken place… a certain injustice (Applause) which had happened for thousands of years… a certain injustice which had occurred for thousands of years. To fix that, we thought for a certain period of time, we will give a certain segment of people an extra advantage so that they can come, level with the rest of the society, but unfortunately we have not been able to fulfill this vision. Even today… even today in villages across the country, if you belong to a certain caste or creed, you cannot even enter a tea shop and have a tea; you’re not supposed to walk through certain streets, everything is separate. It’s a segregated society even today. If we do not change this and change this very soon and the only way to change it is to educate and skill India. If we do not skill India, you will kill it.

So, this has to happen at the earliest possible time because any kind of reservation if it lasts for too long, it will become a discriminatory process which is what you are talking about. So this onerous responsibility is there, that the discriminatory process that is being… even today practiced in the villages of India has to go. Youth have a role to play. We have done many things in this direction but still it has not been solved. It is a huge problem. When such a big problem is there, taking away that little advantage they have. It needs to be reviewed every few years whether it is necessary in a certain area or not, but such right-thinking policies are not possible. These things are all happening on electoral basis whether we will win the election with this policy or not – that has been the only goal. So, it is very important that it is addressed properly. This is one thing that you can do whichever constituency you belong to. The legislative members or the parliament members that you elect, the youth should participate in this and call for a debate with the people who want to stay… stand for election that, see, this is the statistic in our constituency. Do we need this or not this? Can we change it or not? A policy has to come on the national level that it is selective, not across the nation. In urban areas, definitely it may not be necessary, but in many rural areas, it is necessary because they have been disadvantaged for thousands of years.

Sadhguru looks at how Agastya Muni, one of the Saptarishis – the first seven disciples of Adiyogi – took the yogic sciences across the Indian subcontinent. This happened over 15,000 years ago. Sadhguru also explains that this seeking for ultimate liberation became such an integral part of the culture, and it is still alive today. This technology is present in every aspect of Indian culture, which people are unknowingly practicing.

While the human mind is prone to distortions, Sadhguru asks, has the life within you ever lied to you? Your perception comes from the 5 senses, which are all outward bound, but your experience of life is happening within you. Everything that is life is written within, Sadhguru says, but the only problem is that nobody has taught you to turn inward and read it.

Sadhguru Talks @ An Evening with The Mystic, Pune, Jun 2017

The Circus of Morality

Sadhguru: Human mind, because it wants to fix one thing, it invents too many things. Because one fundamental ingredient is missing, instead of getting to it, it tries to invent so many things. Various types of moralities, various ideas of virtue and sin all these things have been invented by human mind just to fill that one slot which has not been filled, that is to be in connection with the Divine which is throbbing within us. Because that one thing is missing, we are trying to make it up with so many things. What is virtue, what is sin, if you go about debating, I’m sure each individual have his own sense of what is virtue and what is sin, of course according to his convenience, you know. All this is just a circus that the mind is doing, simply because the conscious contact with that which is the basis of who you are has not been established, because to cover that one lacking we’ve invented so many things.

On a Sunday morning, in a sunday school the Sunday School teacher was very enthusiastic and he wanted the little tiny tots who were before him to get something that day. So he was talking about virtue. And then he said, ‘Today, as I was coming to the church I saw two people beating up a donkey very badly; I went and saved this donkey from the beating. What virtue is that?’ So a little boy in the back row stood up and said, ‘Brotherly love.’ (Laughter) So your ideas of virtue can always be twisted and turned in so many different ways from generation to generation. Ideas of morality, ideas of virtue and sin are twisting and turning, isn’t it? Whichever way it is convenient for today, accordingly we’ll twist it, and always there’s a debate as to which is virtue and which is sin. From society to society, from generation to generation, from individual to individual – within the house if there are four people, four people have four different standards of virtue, isn’t it so? No? All this, just a cover up job.

To being Being moralistic means, to be in morality means you are in pretention of spirituality. What should have naturally occurred, you’re trying to act it out. If you were a flower that blossomed, fragrance would naturally come, because you’re a plastic flower now, you’re trying to spray. You spray today in an hour’s time, again it’s gone. Morality is a big circus; with great difficulty people are being moral, isn’t it? No? With great difficulty and those of them who are successful in being moralistic, those people who are one hundred percent correct in their morals, one thing that’s happening with them is nobody wants to be around them. They don’t mind being around somebody who’s immoral, but they want somebody lively, isn’t it? Totally moral and lifeless, nobody wants to be with them.

Please see, the more an individual person thinks that he is a good person, ‘I’m good, I’m good, I’m good,’ nobody wants to be with him, because this idea of what is morality, what is virtue, what is sin, is essentially coming in comparison with somebody else. How do I come to a conclusion that I’m a good man? He is not okay, yes? Not okay. She’s not okay, he’s not okay, she’s not okay, he’s not okay, he’s not okay, he’s not okay, compared to all these people I’m a good man.

If I do not make any judgments about any of these people, then there is no basis for me to call myself a good man or a bad man. The more good you think you are, the more you will find, nobody is okay. Have you noticed this? People who think they are very good, in their eyes nobody is okay. If nobody is okay, it’s not a question of virtue, it is a question of madness. The first sign of psychological disorder is you start thinking nobody is okay. Do you know this? Even medically, the first sign of psychological disorder, you start thinking nobody is okay. Some American author said this, I forget his name. He said, ‘Everybody in this world is queer except you and me. You also seem to be little queer.’ (Laughter). So nobody is okay, except you. If nobody is okay it is a clear case of madness, it is not a question of morality or virtue.

So virtue is not about practicing a certain morality; the greatest virtue is that you are in tune with life, you have become life. Am I not life? No. You become too much mind, you become too much emotion, you are not life. And when I say you become too much mind, the content of your mind is not yours. If you carefully watch your mind you will see your father is sitting here, your mother is sitting there, your teacher here, your friend somewhere else, your enemy somewhere else, just a whole crowd of people sitting inside and doing crazy things. Yes? When such a crowd of people are there, there is no question of consciousness. A crowd cannot be conscious.

Only an individual human being can be conscious. If you carry a crowd of people in your head, the chances of you being conscious are super remote. So the whole process, the spiritual process is about shifting from being a mental activity to being a life process. Are you alive with a mind? Are you a mind with life attached? Let’s decide this. Ah? Are you a life with some mental capabilities or are you a mind with a little bit of life attached? You’re a life, isn’t it? A very enthusiastic biology teacher saw a very unenthusiastic classroom full of children, so he wanted to do something.

So he went stood on his head in the class on top of the table. And, he stood there like this on top of his head, and children got interested and they were all looking. Then he said, staying on his head, ‘Can you see my face is getting all red?’ They said, ‘Yes.’ Then he got off and then he said, ‘See, when I stand on my head, my… all the blood moves into my head region and my face gets red. But when I stand on my feet it does not happen, why?’ Why… one little boy stood up and said, ‘Because feet ain’t empty.’ (Laughter) If you perceive things wrongly, upside down, you could be in deep trouble. I want you to understand, life can get poisoned simply because you have a wrong thought or a wrong emotion or a wrong idea or a wrong philosophy for yourself. So how do you know a particular thought is wrong or right? How do you know a particular philosophy is wrong or right? You do not know. The only way to find out whether something is poisonous enough or not is to drink it and see, after that we will know, you will not know.

(Laughter) Yes, we will know it works, you will not know. So what works and what doesn’t work, if you find out like this it’s going to be very expensive. The best thing is to allow the intelligence of the life to function, not taking inputs from too many people and too many things. This life is it a complete life by itself? Or is it a half a life? What do you think? Ah? Is it a complete life? Is it a complete life? Yes. But all the priests, pundits, teachers believe it is not a complete life. They think they have to fix you. The moment a child is born, everybody is trying to tell him what is good and what is bad because somewhere they believe, essentially all children are born bad or they believe Creator has made a mistake and they’re gonna fix it. You think Crearor Creator has made a mistake with you? You think Creator has made a mistake with you and you need to fix it? No.

You just have to become the way he intended, that’s all. If you allow this life to function just the way he intended, everything is fine with this. Now you’ve gotten twisted out, as your society expects you or your own some stupid philosophy that you gathered from somebody. Just to throb here as life Oh is it enough if am just here as life? I may become immoral, I may kill this person, I may rob this person I may ha… do harm to this person. Yes, if you sit here just as a body it is very much possible. The moment you get hungry you may pounce on the person next to you and start eating him or her. Possible, if you sit here just as a body, it is possible. If you sit here just as a mind it is very much possible depending upon what kind of content you have taken into your mind, accordingly you may do so many things.

But if you sit here and reverberate as just life, the question of harming another life will never occur to you. Nobody has to tell you, do not harm, do not do this, do not do that. Only if you’re here as a body or as a mind, then somebody has to tell you don’t pounce on somebody. If you’re here as a piece of life, if you throb as life, you will see you will not need any morality, you will not need any teaching, you will not any need virtues, input into you… input into you.

If you sit here, you’re perfectly fine. What this life has to do, you will anyway do, what it… should not do, you will anyway not do. And if you reverberate this …as a piece of life, you will clearly know that your life is not individual. It is connected with everything in the universe. There is no way you can miss that point. Only if you’re too engaged in your head or too involved in your body you will be a separate happening. If your involvement is with the life process, not with the physical process, not with the psychological process, if you’re not identified too much with the physical process and the psychological process, if you’re simply sitting here as a life process, you cannot miss the point that there are no borders for your life process.

It is happening from everywhere..
