Why is the vilva leaf so revered? By common knowledge, we know that the tree has been held sacred for many millennia and offerings made to Shiva are incomplete without vilva leaves. Why is the vilva held so sacred? Sadhguru answers.

Questioner: Pranam Sadhguru. I wanted to know what’s so special about the maha bilva (maha vilva?) leaf that we offer to Dhyanalinga?

Sadhguru: We have also been thinking of doing this but in certain parts of the country some people have tried to preserve all those leaves and flowers which are considered sacred. ‘Why are they considered sacred? Why is one flower more sacred than the other, what is this nonsense all about? Is it some kind of a prejudice?’ See, right now there are two trees here – this is punga maram and this (Referring to the vaahai maram next to the temple) is… what? This is one of the common street-side trees, I don’t know the… what name they have for it – you must spend time… For all these things, you need to spend time. If you spend time with this tree and this tree, you will see if you become meditative, you will naturally move towards this (Referring to punga maram), not towards that. (Referring to the vaahai maram next to the temple) Why is this so? After all everything comes from the soil. The neem tree… the neem fruit and the mango fruit come from the same soil but they taste very different, isn’t it? Same soil, right here they’re going side by side but they taste very different.

So how this particular life processes the same soil and how that life processes the same soil is different or if you want to look at it that way, between a worm and an insect and yourself and one more other human being, what is the difference? All the same stuff but still what we make out of it is different, isn’t it? So in every society – it doesn’t matter in how many try… in how many ways you try to level societies and people, people will stick out. People with certain kinds of talents will stick out, people with certain kinds of capability will stick out; you can’t put them down, isn’t it? Do what you want, some people will stand out, some people become part of the scenery. This is bound to happen. Similarly among other lives also it is true. So with the plant life.

Barkha Dutt with Sadhguru – In Conversation with the Mystic

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

Full Transcript:

Barkha Dutt: Good evening everybody. I hope you can all hear me right till the back? Yes. I think Chiki also… already did the business of introducing Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, who’s been described in many different ways in my profession, by people from my profession, we’ve called you a maverick, (Sadhguru laughs) we’ve called you a monk on a motorcycle, we’ve called you a glamorous, flamboyant guru but for your devotees you are simply Sadhguru. And yet Sadhguru, at a time when faith seems to be in collision with so many other questions that come up as a matter of individual liberty, I think this will make for a very interesting and important conversation for our times, so I would like to thank you for being part of this conversation.

Let me start with the spiritual and I hope what you say today is also addressed to the skeptics. I count myself among a skeptic, who if told that another human being possesses some sort of godly power, I would perhaps as the first instinct, not believe it but I find interesting about what you’ve s… some of your sayings, as captured by Arundhati Subramaniam in this book, is that you’re actually saying that what we experience beyond our five senses, anything that we experience beyond the five senses can be called God, can be called power or can be called yourself. So if God doesn’t necessarily exist, why do we need gurus, why do we need Sadhguru (Laughter)?

Vinita Bali, former MD of Britannia, converses with Sadhguru about the next step in the life of an individual, a family, a community and humanity as a whole. Over the course of the conversation, Sadhguru gives a simple process that every individual can do daily, and also answers several questions from the audience.

Sadhguru: Good evening everyone.

Vinita Bali: Good evening, namaskar and a very warm welcome

to all of us here. It is indeed an honor and a real privilege, Sadhguru, to have you with us for the next ninety minutes, during which time I shall do my best, as Moumita described earlier, to engage in a freewheeling conversation and we will explore I think a variety of concepts with Sadhguru – concepts around leadership, ethics, individual responsibility, a little bit of questions around spirituality and so on. So, without further ado, I want to start off by asking you, Sadhguru, what is the next step for Sadhguru?

Sadhguru: (Laughs) Dinner.

Vinita Bali: Dinner (Laughter/Applause)? I thought that was already over. So, we expect a more profound answer from you (Laughter).

Sadhguru: It’s a very profound answer (Laughter) because you can postpone many things in your life. You can postpone buying a home, buying a car, you can postpone your wedding if you want – it’s a good thing (Laughter) – you can postpone your divorce, good to postpone your death. But you can’t postpone your dinner (Laughter). Right now, this is the ugliness, which is happening in this country. A whole lot of people are postponing their dinner today. This is the horrible situation that’s happening. So, do not consider dinner as not so profound, it’s very profound. If you are eating ten times a day, it’s not profound. If you are eating once or even twice a day, it is quite profound (Laughs).
