How to Live Happily? - Sadhguru Answers

How to Live Happily? - Sadhguru Answers

Addressing a group of students and faculty at the IIT campus in Chennai, India, Sadhguru answers a question on how to maintain joy and happiness regardless of the external circumstances. खुश कैसे रहा जाए? IIT चेन्नै के कैंपस में स्टूडेंट्स और फ़ैकलटी मेंबर्स को संबोधित करते समय सद्गुरु ने इस सवाल का जवाब दिया कि बाहरी परिस्थितियां चाहे जैसे भी हों, खुश और आनंदित कैसे रहा जाए। Sadhguru Talks @ IIT Madras, Student Activity Center, Chennai, Oct 2010 **************************************** “Inner Engineering: A Yogi’s Guide to Joy”, the New York Times Bestseller by yogi, mystic and visionary, Sadhguru, is now available for Amazon Pre-Order in India at http://isha.co/PreorderIE ****************************************** Transcript: http://isha.sadhguru.org/blog/video/how-to-live-happily/ Questioner: Good evening, sir. I happened to listen to a lecture of yours that talked about joy and happiness. You talked that joy depends on oneself, whereas happiness depends on others. I tried a little while to practice it but what I found was that I was not able to sustain those small moments of joy. I could experience joy when I was completely into it, very passionate about what to do, but somehow when an external person or say, some external entity recognizes what I do, the joy is just out of my life. So how do you sustain those moments of joy and not succumb to these pleasures of happiness? If you could… it would be nice if you can share the difference between joy and happiness to this crowd too. Sadhguru: See, right now if I tell you... or if you're… not me, let’s say your Dean tells you, from tomorrow, all of you, what kind of clothes you should wear, immediately there’ll be protests in the college. If your Dean goes further and says, ‘Everybody must eat only four idlis in the morning.’ If your Dean tells you, ‘Everybody should get up at five o’clock in the morning.’ Let’s say he put ten different rules like this, physical things to do, you will think he's trying to convert you into slaves and you will shout and scream for your freedom, isn't it? But look at yourself and see. Right now somebody else, if they determine what should happen around you, you feel like a slave, but right now somebody else is determining what should happen within you. Is this not slavery? Somebody can decide whether you're happy or unhappy, is this not slavery? Somebody can decide whether you will be a pleasant human being or an unpleasant human being, is this not slavery What happens within you, somebody else determines – this is the worst form of slavery, isn't it? Isn't it so? It is just that because everybody is like that it seems to be normal; it is not. It is not normal. Just because everybody is like that, it does not become normal. This human being, life around you will not happen… will never happen hundred percent the way you want it, and it should not happen; because if everything happens the way you want it, where do I go? I'm very happy it's not happening your way. And now that you're a student? You're still a student? I believe about sixty, seventy percent is happening your way. When you get married, the percentage will get reversed. We don’t know. We don’t know whether which way it'll go. So if… life around you will never happen hundred percent the way you want it and it should not. Unless you're living with machines, life will not happen and even those machines will freak on you, isn't it? Aren’t the machines troubling you every day for something or the other? They do. So outside will never happen hundred percent the way you want it and if your happiness or your joyfulness or let’s not use all these so many words – essentially it is pleasantness versus unpleasantness. For pleasantness we have many names, we call it peace, happiness, joy, bliss, ecstasy..

How Do You Stop the Mind's Chatter? - Sadhguru

How Do You Stop the Mind's Chatter? - Sadhguru

Sadhguru answers a question on why the mind seems to have a mind of its own! He looks at how terms such as "no-mind" and "stop the mind" have been used over the years, and asks why one would want to stop the mind - the product of millions of years of evolution. The problem, he reminds us, is not the mind, but that the mind is "telling its own story." He describes how the powerful kriya, Shambhavi Mahamudra, is one big step towards changing this. Sadhguru Talks @ Volunteers Meet, Mysore, Apr 2011 कैसे रोकें मन की बक-बक को? सद्गुरु एक सवाल का जवाब देते हुए बताते हैं कि मन लगातार चलता क्यों रहता है। “विचारशून्यता” और “विचारहीनता” जैसे शब्दों, जिनका एक लंबे अरसे से प्रयोग किया जाता रहा है, का ज़िक्र करते हुए सद्गुरु पूछते हैं कि लाखों सालों के विकास के बाद मिले इस शानदार मन को कोई रोकना क्यों चाहेगा। वे याद दिलाते हैं कि मन समस्या नहीं है, समस्या बस इतनी है कि मन “अपनी खुद की कहानियां” बताते रहता है। सद्गुरु बताते हैं कि कैसे शांभवी महामुद्रा क्रिया इस स्थिति को बदलने का एक सोपान हो सकता है। *************************** Transcript: http://isha.sadhguru.org/blog/video/stop-minds-chatter/ Questioner: Sadhguru, I wanted to know that when we are silent still we feel that mind chattering which always bothers us and our thought always shifts back to past and future imaginations which will not be any of output. How to get rid of it? Sadhguru: You want to stop your mind? There are whole lot of thought about this thoughtlessness. There are many places people… where people are… (Talking Aside - What are the little babies doing here, how old are these kids? How old are you? Fourteen? I am sure you added two years.

How to Reduce Sleep Quota and Increase Sleep Quality? - Sadhguru

How to Reduce Sleep Quota and Increase Sleep Quality? - Sadhguru

Sadhguru explains that what the body needs is rest, and not necessarily sleep. If the body is at ease while you are awake, the sleep quota will go down. He also looks at how the quality of sleep is connected to the quality of life. If you wake up well, you will sleep well he says. Sadhguru Talks @ Darshan, Isha Yoga Center, Oct 2012 नींद कम और गहरी कैसे करें? सद्गुरु समझा रहें हैं कि कैसे शरीर को नींद की नहीं बल्कि आराम की ज़रुरत है। अगर जागते हुए भी आपका शरीर आराम की अवस्था में है, तो आप देखेंगे कि आपकी नींद का कोटा अपने-आप कम हो जाएगा। वह यह भी बतातें हैं कि अगर जीवन की क्वॉलिटी में सुधार लाया जाए तो स्वाभाविक रूप से बढ़िया नींद आएगी। अगर आप सुबह अच्छी तरह सो कर उठेंगे, तो रात में भी आप अच्छे से सोएंगे। **************************************** Transcript: http://isha.sadhguru.org/blog/video/how-to-reduce-sleep-quota-and-increase-sleep-quality/ Questioner: No, no, I want more actually. About compulsions and evening person and morning person, I was wondering how can I decrease my hours of sleep and how can I improve my sleep quality? Sadhguru: You want to increase the quality of your sleep means you want to reduce the quantity, is that what you’re saying? Questioner: Yeah somehow both; my need for hours I want to decrease and I want to improve the quality. Thank you. Sadhguru: Okay. See, sleep is not a requirement in one’s life. What the body requires is rest. Sleep is just one form of rest. Lot of people are beginning to think… in Tamil Nadu if somebody says, ‘He is resting,’ means they’re sleeping. (Laughter) Need not be. You can sit and rest, isn’t it? Yes? You can stand and also rest. You’re running – if you stand, doesn’t it feel like rest? You’re standing, if you sit down, doesn’t it feel like rest? There are many ways of resting. The most important thing is rest means you’re changing the energy equation where consumption is lowered, production is going on at the same pace. So after a period of time, you feel rejuvenated because consumption has been lowered. Essentially you’re managing the energy equation. If you’re on acute activity, the consumption is more; whatever you’re producing it’s not enough, after some time you feel exhausted because the consumption has been heavy. If you lower the consumption and increase the production, after sometime you feel energized. Suppose you’re running, if you run a mile, after that you can’t take another step, let’s say. Oh, many of you have been running for Isha marathons, Isha Vidya marathons, forty, forty-two kilometers, all right, whenever – after a mile or two you can’t take another step, don’t eat anything, don’t drink anything, just sit down for ten minutes, again you’re fine, rejuvenated, isn’t it? All you have done is lowered the consumption, production is still at the same level.

Why Do People Get Thyroid Problems? - Sadhguru

Why Do People Get Thyroid Problems? - Sadhguru

Sadhguru looks at the reason behind the widespread manifestation of thyroid imbalance in the world today. Sadhguru Talks @ Isha Yoga Center, Mar 2017 **************************************** Transcript: http://isha.sadhguru.org/blog/video/why-do-people-get-thyroid-problems/ Questioner: Sadhguru, these days, many people are diagnosed with thyroid problems, either hypothyroidism or… hyper or hypothyroidism. Even though we are consuming iodized salt, still thyroid problems are prevalent. What is the cause for the increase in these problems? Is it stress-related like diabetes or hypertension? Can we overcome these conditions with hatha yoga, or kriya, or being in a consecrated space like Isha Yoga Center? What are the things we can do to come out of it? Sadhguru: I think a whole lot of people have come out of it with hatha yoga practice, no question about it. Being in a consecrated place definitely adds to it. But, this pretty widespread manifestation of thyroid imbalance. See, we must understand this. What you’re calling as thyroid - in yoga, we don’t look at the glands like that but medically, what you’re calling as thyroid is that secretion within you, which is trying to calibrate your system on a daily basis. It’s just calibrating how much digestion should happen, how much energy should be produced, how much fat should be produced, how much muscle should be built, everything, it’s trying to calibrate your physical structure. Your physical structure is very closely related to your psychological structure. Today, there is substantial evidence to show you that if you sit here and think of the mountain, your glandular function will happen in a certain way, if you think about a tiger, it’ll happen another way, you think about a ocean, it’ll happen another way, you think of a man or a woman, it’ll happen another way. Just a thought – nothing, no contact with mountain, no contact with tiger, no contact with man, woman or ocean – just a thought will fluctuate the glandular function. I’m saying that is how fine the system is that it is trying to calibrate everything to keep you in a good place. The problem with you is you need a bullock cart because you are the missing link (Laughs). You need a bullock cart but they gave you a fine spaceship, tch. Every little thing will do a world of things. Simply if you touch it, it’ll go boom, waves of stuff happening in the system. Simply if you look like this (Gestures) and make one conclusion about the tree, this (Referring to oneself) will go into many varieties of chemical and other kinds of variations. Glandular functions will change. Wherever you may be, whether you’re in Mumbai, or New York, or London, wherever – just look at the situation in which you’re walking. Maybe socially, you’ve gotten used to those things. But look at the kind of atmosphere you’re walking in, the number of things that are happening. None of them are conducive for this life (Referring to oneself). You might have gotten adjusted to it, maybe now you can’t live out of those cities, that’s another matter but the life that you are, is not seeking that kind of atmosphere. So the number of variations that are happening within you are not in your favor. Glandular dysfunction is just one manifestation. A very highly calibrated function of glandular function, one thing is the thyroid. It’s easily noticeable, the first thing, your physiological and psychological parameters get thrown off a bit, simply because disturbance. And another dimension is what’s the disturbance that’s happening from within you – your own psychological patterns. Another dimension of disturbance is what kind of food is getting into you. There is no way you can eat anything today, which is not chemically infested. If you’re eating very organic food, it’s little organic chemicals they’re using. It’s come to that place (A participant laughs). It’s very difficult to eat something that’s just grown in the wild forest, you can pluck out something and eat. That’s very, very little. Not even a small percentage of people are...

Insight Into Depression - Sadhguru

Insight Into Depression - Sadhguru

In this discourse "Insight Into Depression", Sadhguru explains that in most cases of depression a person is simply generating intense thoughts and emotions that are working against them and that in many ways, 70% of all illnesses are self-created. Sadhguru Talks @ Darshan, Isha Yoga Center, Coimbatore, Sep 2010 डिप्रेशन का मूल कारण सद्गुरु डिप्रेशन/अवसाद के मूल कारण बताते हुए कहते हैं कि डिप्रेशन के अधिकतर मामलों में, मनुष्य खुद ही ऐसी गहरी भावनाओं और विचारों को पैदा करता है, जो उसके खिलाफ काम करते हैं, और कई मायनों में सत्तर प्रतिशत बीमारियाँ लोग खुद ही पैदा करते हैं। ****************************************** Transcript: http://isha.sadhguru.org/blog/video/insight-into-depression/ Sadhguru: If you are capable of causing depression to yourself... I’m saying this not without any concern for your illness or not due to lack of compassion, because that is the nature of what’s happening to you. If you’re causing depression to yourself, you are able to generate substantial amount of intense emotions and thoughts, but in the wrong direction. If you don’t have very strong emotions, very intense thoughts about something, you cannot get depressed. It is just that you are generating thoughts and emotion which work against you, not for you. So you are strong enough to cause depression to yourself, because for you to cause a mental illness for yourself… unless you are pathologically ill which is just a small number of people, rest are all self-created. Most of them are self-created. A few are pathologically ill, it’s… they cannot help it. It just comes from within because of genetic and other factors. Almost everybody here, if we train them towards a certain kind of thought process and emotion and push them a little bit with the outside situations, almost everybody will go… lose their mental balance, they will become clinically ill. They can be driven to madness, I’m saying, because the line between sanity and insanity is very thin, people keep pushing it. You get angry, you’re pushing the line; it’s a thin line. In fact when you get angry you know you’re pushing the line, that's why the expression, ‘I was mad at somebody.’ You are not mad at somebody, you’re just going mad. You cannot be mad at somebody, you’re just pushing your sanity, the boundaries of sanity and moving into insanity, for a certain period of time and coming back. You do one thing, every day you try this – 10 minutes a day try intense anger on somebody. You will see in three months’ time, you will be clinically there. Yes. Just try it, if you want. Because if you keep pushing the line – you go mad and you come back, you go mad and you come back – one day you’re not able to come back, that's all. One day you’re not able to turn back, then you’re clinically ill. You must understand even if you got angry for a moment, you’re already ill; maybe you don’t get the certificate of diagnosis, they don’t slap a certificate on you that you’re gone, but you are going, isn't it? You think it’s your right to throw tantrums, you think it’s your right to get angry with people, you think it’s your privilege to be depressed so that you’ll get attention from somebody. You keep playing this, one day you will not able… you will not be able to turn back. Keep crossing the line every day, one day you will see you cannot cross back, that day you need a doctor. Till then everybody needed a respite from you but the day you can't cross back they get the respite, because now they can catch you and give you to a doctor. Otherwise you’re temporarily going mad, every day many times a day, they cannot even send you to an asylum, they have to bear with you - your family, your friends, your people around you. If you get at least truly clinically ill, we can hand you over. There’s one temple in Tamil Nadu, you know? Where they chain you and keep you? Where there’s no hospital.

How to Control Anger - Sadhguru

How to Control Anger - Sadhguru

Answering a question on how to control anger, Sadhguru clarifies that anger is not an entity somewhere that we have to control or avoid. The fundamental reason why anger is a problem is because our minds are not in our control, which is what needs to be addressed. Sadhguru Talks @ RVS College, Coimbatore, Jan 2012 ****************** Transcript: Participant: Swamiji, can you explain what is life? How can we avoid angry? Sadhguru: I am sorry, what is? Participant: Explain what is life? Sadhguru: What is life? Participant: Yeah! Sadhguru: Oh! (Laughs) And what is the second part of it? Participant: How can you avoid angry? Sadhguru: How can you avoid anger? See, if you are driving on the Coimbatore streets, if you’re driving on the Coimbatore street, you have to avoid the medians which are placed in odd places, you have to avoid bad drivers, you have to avoid drunken men crossing the street, children crossing the street, all kinds of things. But when you’re driving on Coimbatore street, do you have to avoid the moon? I am asking you? Do you have to avoid the moon? No! Because the moon is not on the street. Isn't it? So, similarly, right now, are you angry? No? Then why should you avoid it? There is no need to avoid it. It is just that, you think anger is an entity. Anger is not an entity - you become angry. You become angry, anger is not sitting somewhere and you go hit it. There is no such thing. You become angry. When you become angry, is it pleasant for you, or unpleasant for you? Unpleasant for you… Unpleasant for others for sure, unpleasant for yourself also.

How to Become Silent? - Sadhguru

How to Become Silent? - Sadhguru

Sadhguru explains, in the process of becoming silent, shutting one’s mouth is only half the job. Those too enamored with their own thought process will only catch themselves in a loop of recycled memories. Sadhguru Talks @ In the Lap of the Master, Isha Yoga Center, Apr 2009 **************************************** Transcript: http://isha.sadhguru.org/blog/video/becoming-silent/ So the process of what you call as spiritual is not a psychological process. Your memory has nothing to do with it. It’s a life process; it’s an existential process. This can only happen if you allow yourself to be just a piece of life that you are. To do this, we do many things here and, you know, you might have seen people in the ashram walking around with those orange tags. If you have seen the silence tags people are wearing – just shut up. Because, shutting your mouth is only half the job; to become silent is possible only when you do not think much of yourself. If you think something about yourself, if you think ‘I am smart’ how can you shut up? -You tell me. If you think ‘I am smart’ how can you shut up? If you realize that you are actually stupid, you don’t know anything in this existence then… (Gestures) isn’t it? Then you can simply look at life with great sense of wonder, without a thought appearing in your mind. If you think you are smart about everything, you got explanations and calculations and nonsense going on in your head. If you see one thing, a thousand thoughts will go off, isn’t it? You are not sitting here in this sathsang totally silent; you are agreeing with me, disagreeing with me, making comments within yourself, making comments about the clothes that somebody is wearing next to you, appreciating it, depreciating it, everything is happening. Am I wrong? Because the moment you think there is some value to what you think then you can’t stop it; no way to stop it. It’ll just go on and on and on. When you see there is absolutely no life value to your thought process; it is just memory recycling itself, it is just the same old nonsense recycling itself… but if you are exited, if you are enamored by this recycle, if you think it’s great you cannot stop it. If you see the patterns of what it is, if you see the stupidity of what it is, then slowly you will distance yourself and it’ll collapse because without attention it cannot go on.
