  • (Speaker): The question is how can we translate Gita,

  • the philosophy of Krishna

  • into augmenting business in India?

  • (Sadhguru): I… I have not read the Gita, so (Laughs)

  • I really have not.

  • I’m sorry,

  • because,

  • for me my own vision has never failed me.

  • So I always kept away from all scriptures

  • because I didn’t want to clutter myself

  • with something or the other.

  • The only thing that I learnt and I continue to do is,

  • if I look at something

  • if I look at a person,

  • I know their past, present and future.

  • That is the level of attention I’m paying to them.

  • I don’t look at like this,

  • when I look I look at it completely with all that I have.

  • If you pay enough attention

  • there is nothing that will not yield.

  • So I never had any reason or need

  • to go looking for scriptures or something.

  • With allwith all respect and regard for them,

  • it is not that I am averse to it,

  • it's just that I have not have the time. (Laughs)

  • How this whole process started is,

  • when I was very young I realized that

  • I just don't know anything.

  • See, if you realize that you do not know,

  • if it's a full-scale realization that you do not know anything,

  • paying attention will be natural.

  • Because you know everything

  • I know this guy,

  • I know this, this, this, this, this;

  • therere assumptions and assumptions and assumptions.

  • Well, I have used it in a different way

  • but even if youre doing business

  • even it's for business purposes

  • the only reason why one human being seems to be

  • all the opportunities seems to be going in his direction

  • and not other people, is simply because

  • he is able to see and

  • other people are not able to see.

  • It's not that it's not there for others.

  • One is able to see and others are not able to see.

  • So essentially a leader means that you are able to see something

  • that others are not able to see.

  • So attention without intention;

  • simply being attentive that’s what we were trying to do in the afternoon;

  • not paying attention to something,

  • just practicing attention;

  • a very heightened level of attention

  • where an unfocused attention

  • but when you focus it on something,

  • just about anything has to yield.

  • There is no other way to that attention.

  • So I always focused on enhancing and sharpening my attention,

  • never on retention

  • because what you gather is not you.

  • Essentially you know that you exist

  • only because you have some sense of attention right now, isn't it?

  • Suppose you fall asleep and you lose your attention,

  • you do not even know that you exist.

  • So the basis of your existence itself is attention.

  • And this attention need not be mortgaged to anything.

  • You just have to sharpen the attention.

  • See, if you have a knife in your hands

  • there is no such thing that

  • you have to cut only apples with this.

  • If you have a sharp enough knife

  • you could cut anything that you want.

  • But the important thing is the knife is sharp enough.

  • So if your attention is keen enough

  • not for something or the other

  • if your attention has become very keen;

  • if you wish to do a certain type of activity you can successfully do it.

  • I think I must say something about my own enterprises at one time.

  • My enterprise started when I was eight years of age.

  • Because of a strange kind of pride in me,

  • I wouldn’t

  • I never, ever took a single rupee as a pocket money from my parents.

  • I started making money when I was six, seven years of age.

  • By eight I was quite an accomplished entrepreneur.

  • Simple things

  • even today I’m known in Mysore because

  • I caught snakes in everybody’s houses.

  • If I caught a snake,

  • they gave me twenty-five rupees.

  • In 1960s, twenty-five rupees is a million dollars

  • for a seven-year old, eight-year old kind. (Laughs)

  • I was just on top of the world.

  • So there is a food research institute

  • CFTRI

  • every Saturday afternoon I went there.

  • I caught four, five snakes.

  • They measured it.

  • I have to show it like this.

  • If it's over three feet I get fifty rupees.

  • Less than three feet, I get twenty-five rupees.

  • On an afternoon I would make hundred to hundred-and-fifty rupees.

  • I don't know if you can imagine

  • hundred and fifty rupees for a eight, ten year old kid

  • in 1960s or 70s was like a million dollars today.

  • It was big and I went to so many things;

  • just about anything that came my way.

  • I should tell you a little enterprise that I did which grow into

  • grew into a great business.

  • After my university,

  • where I learned nothing but I passed (Laughs)

  • The only thing was by then I had crisscrossed India on my motorcycle

  • and I suddenly realized when I went to the borders of India,

  • they asked me for something other than my driving license.

  • I did not even know that there was a passport.

  • See, it's not like today.

  • Today every child may be three-year old,

  • four-year’s old kid knows he has to have a passport,

  • I’m in my twenties but I do not know that I need a passport.

  • I went to the border and then they said, ‘Where is your passport?’

  • I said, ‘What? I have a driving license.’

  • They said, ‘No, you need a passport.’

  • Then I turned back from Nepal border and came back on my motorcycle.

  • So my only dream was I am going to just ride across the world.

  • So I wanted to do something.

  • I started a kind of farming,

  • commercial farming.

  • I was making money.

  • I thought I will do for two years and leave.

  • But in the meantime my entrepreneurship took off in so many different ways.

  • Like this I went about and then

  • there was some

  • there was a industry coming up close-by;

  • they wanted to build a water treatment plant.

  • I happened to know the person who was running the industry.

  • I just went there and I wanted to meet him.

  • I was sitting in his office.

  • They were discussing something about a water treatment plant.

  • I just heard this and

  • they were looking at the drawings and stuff.

  • Then I asked, ‘Can I apply, can I do this?

  • Because it's close to my farm, can I do this?’

  • He said, ‘No, no this is very complex.

  • There are some experts from Mumbai and Bangalore

  • who will come and do it. You cannot do it.’

  • I said, ‘Give me a chance. Let me see.’

  • I took the file from him.

  • I went and read through everything.

  • Then I went back to him after three days and said, ‘I can do this.’

  • He said, ‘Don’t you do this. Youre my friend.

  • I don’t want to do this.’

  • No, just let me give a… you know the tender.’

  • So I, you know, those days there was something called as

  • Nava Karnataka book stalls.

  • They were selling only the Russian books.

  • You used to get big literature books.

  • You can get Leo Tolstoy’s War & Peace for two rupees

  • and engineering books for one rupee, two rupees

  • all hard bound books.

  • I bought ten books about water treatment plant.

  • Sat down in my farm and poured through this day and night.

  • I made my own new design.

  • I went there and I gave a tender for one point seven-six lakhs,

  • mind you this is seventies.

  • And the closest tender was thirty-two lakhs;

  • the highest tender was over sixty lakhs.

  • He looked at this and said,

  • You are funny.

  • Youre not going to do this.’

  • I said, ‘No I can do it.’

  • He said, ‘No way you can do it. Look at this,

  • the nearest tender is thirty-two lakhs

  • and youre saying one point seven-six lakhs.

  • How will you do it?’

  • I said,

  • Give me one more day.’

  • I went back again and poured through the books.

  • I said, ‘I’ll do it.’

  • Then he said, ‘It's ninety days you must finish this and it must work.

  • If it doesn’t work,

  • at your own cost you must remove it.

  • Clean the site and go and I will not give you a rupee of advance.’

  • I again went and poured through the books.

  • I said, ‘I can do it.’

  • I completed this in a… little over seventy days.

  • I did this in ninety plus thousand rupees.

  • In one shot I made eighty thousand rupees just like that.

  • People thought this is a hit.

  • There my construction industry started.

  • Raja Ramanna was coming for RMP plant.

  • He is just coming in a helicopter to see where the site is.

  • There is no, anybody there.

  • I just went and met this engineer.

  • He says he was breaking his head,

  • I don't know what to do,

  • I have to mark the site.

  • I said, ‘I have got pegs and white cloth. (Laughs)

  • I will just go and mark the site for you.’

  • I marked it.

  • They paid me thirty-eight thousand rupees for a fifteen minute job.

  • I went on my motorcycle and just fixed it myself.

  • Like this my enterprise started and we grew into a major construction company.

  • We were going big but then I got enlightened.

  • So I gave up.

  • (Applause)

  • Speaker: Okay. Thank youthank you Sadhguru for sharing that story.

  • Thank you professor. Weve kind of absolutely run out of time

  • otherwise we could have continued further,

  • another half-an-hour at least.

  • Thank you for being an attentive audience.

(Speaker): The question is how can we translate Gita,
