Abusing Sadhguru and the cost of Indian Kakistocracy

India has an abuse epidemic.  Those with hardly any contribution to humanity (other than profanity packaged as humor), can throw stones at those who are involved in work that will save not just our kids but the planet itself. A hundred years from now, when the world’s climate has

Was Shiva the Adi Yogi or Universal Consciousness?

The understanding of “God” in the Yogic lineage and in Hinduism (its derivative) has never been of a person or entity.   It has always been of the infinite, immanent and eternal consciousness.  This eternal consciousness has been understood (and experienced by the Sages and Rishis) as changeless yet dynamic, both

Breaking Dharma: Vilification of Bhakt, Bhakti and Guru

Over the last few years, the left (and the their ideological allies, the Congress and its bedfellows the regional so-called secular parties) – in order to spite their political rivals, the BJP – have used a word pejoratively – “Bhakt”.  Which means devotee.  Clever ploy to use Dharmic terms in a negative way

How do I Find my Guru?

You don’t.  Period.  How can you?  If you know what it is, you would have found out.  Guru is for seeking.  Seeking is when you Don’t know anything. Spiritual journey is not about information or knowledge.  For, whatever you will know mentally is one, predicated on your conditioning

Mahashivaratri Special: Who is Shiva?

Shiva is not god.  Shiva is not a deity.  Shiva is the very basis of existence.  The consciousness itself.  Beyond the dualities and the form arising from the motion of conscious energy, there is basic primordial one-ness or better still the nothingness.  That is what Shiva represents. #Mahashivaratri Special: Who

How a being blossoms the Isha way

Sometimes one does not fully understand the import of things that Sadhguru says until you see it in a radical way.  He keeps emphasizing upon the ability of the Isha practices and ways to make a person “lighter” and “Happier”.  Given the rigmarole that most of us go through in

What is Truth?

The very idea of “Truth” is so restricted and incompletely understood.  Truth, in real Spiritual sense, is existential in nature. In this video Sadhguru re-defines truth in existential terms, not in the words you speak but in the way you are. He explains how the essential nature of life is

Stop “Being Good”. Be Human

Stop being good!  Just be.  We have this whole mechanism in the world where Morality and Being Good has been given over importance.  It is nonsensical. “When our humanity overflows, divinity descends,” Sadhguru tells us in this video. Looking at the reason why our humanity can get “constipated”, he tells

Is my life Pre-destined?

If everything is pre-destined, then why should one make any effort?  This question – that if God has designed and decided everything – then why should I do anything on my own; has troubled most believers.  Sadhguru cuts through the entire question and brings the audience face to face with their own

Laws are merely different events that have been linked in a causation paradigm – because they have happened – or apparently happened – as we know them in a certain sequence! The structure and serial linkages of the prevalent laws and “principles” therefore are limited
