http://www.ishafoundation.org/ A seeker asks Sadhguru the significance of Jeeva Samadhi. Sadhguru explains the various aspects of samadhi in detail. (AO76)

Date: 2015-09-02 17:26:30

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.

“The Bhairavi Yantra is for those who are actively involved with life,” Sadhguru explains, “and they want “lubrication” for their actions with the Grace of Devi.”

Participant: Sadhguru, could you please explain to us the difference between Sadhguru Sannidhi, Linga Bhairavi Yantra and Avighna Yantra and how do we choose which is suitable for us to bring it home. Is it based on our limitations or our strengths in terms of practices? Could you please explain that to us?

Sadhguru: Not in much of a speaking mood today. (Laughs) The Bhairavi Yantra is for those who are actively involved with life and they want to lubricate, they have many things to do in the world. They want to do many things in the world. They want to lubricate their actions with the Grace of the Devi. People who are actively involved in businesses, careers, family life – one of the main things which does not allow a human being to find his full potential is friction. Friction need not necessarily mean that you are getting into a fight with somebody but when you try to be active in a big way it builds up around you. So to be able to keep the friction levels low, determines how far you will endure. If the friction increases you will want to stay away from activity or you get into one big mess. It does not matter how important a certain goal is for you, if every day when you step out and try to do something, friction is coming, slowly you will develop an aversion to that very dear goal of yours in your life. Hmm? Slowly you will become a kind of a renunciate (Laughs) because you can’t deal with the friction. Most human beings I would say, I would say 80% of the human beings have hugely curtailed the possibility of what they could do in their life simply because they cannot deal with the friction that they naturally generate when they get into briskly into activity. So they curtail their lives and keep it very small and protected. They think that’s the smart way to deal. It’s not a very smart way to deal because instead of bringing lubrication, you are keeping the engine off. That’s not a good thing. If your engine is making funny noises, what it needs is lubrication, not to be kept in the garage forever. Then the very purpose of why it is here is lost. So Devi and all the forms, different types of yantras available with regard to Devi is about that, to bring Grace in such a way that you can take up things and do things and you still do not get into friction. Her Grace will take care of that. What are the different things that you said? There are only two or three right? Only two, Sannidhi and…

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?

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.

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

Full Transcript: http://isha.sadhguru.org/blog/video/vilva-leaf-dear-shiva/

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.
