  • Sadhguru: Meditation is a phenomenal empowerment

  • that you can do whatever is needed in the world,

  • whatever, I mean that, and still remain untouched by

  • the process of activities that we need to conduct in the world.

  • If you sit here, your body is here,

  • your mind is there, who you are is little away.

  • This is the end of suffering, and this is meditativeness.

  • Sadhguru: Namaskaram.

  • Probably, the second most

  • repeated word, oft-repeated word,

  • in these last few weeks,

  • apart from corona virus, is meditation.

  • Everybody is suddenly, people who had never meditated in their lives,

  • never even considered that possibility, are now suddenly talking about meditation

  • the need to meditate, wanting to meditate.

  • Let us examine this meditation, what this is?

  • First of all, what does the word "meditation" mean?

  • The English word "meditation" doesn't really mean anything,

  • in the sense, it doesn't say anything specific.

  • If anybody sits normally with their eyes closed,

  • it's assumed they must be meditating.

  • One can sit with their eyes closed and do many things.

  • You can do Japa, Tapa, Dharana, Dhyana, Samadhi, Shoonya, Samyama,

  • or you might have just mastered the art of sleeping in vertical postures.

  • So the word "meditation" in English language doesn't specify anything.

  • Generally we assume, or generally people assume that, meditation means Dhyana.

  • In Tamil Nadu, it's Dhyanam; if you go little north, it's Dhyana; if you go really up north, it's Dhyan.

  • If you go further up, it becomes Chan (Referring to Chinese word for meditation); if you go little more east, it becomes Zen.

  • Same thing.

  • So, what is this dimension

  • that we are trying to describe with this word "meditation"?

  • One fundamental thing that we need to understand is,

  • you cannot do meditation,

  • because meditation is a quality.

  • A quality is a consequence of a certain process.

  • You can initiate a process, you can conduct a process.

  • You cannot conduct a qualityquality is just a consequence.

  • It is like, you want...

  • flowers in your garden.

  • You don't sit there and do flower meditation.

  • You know what happened to the "flower people" (refers to "hippies," a subculture formed in San Francisco in the 1960s).

  • If you want flowers in your garden, you don't have to think flowers...

  • you have to think soil, manure, water, sunlight.

  • If you conduct this process of these ingredients properly,

  • flower and fruit is a consequence.

  • But today...

  • the world has become so goal-oriented.

  • Because they're so goal-oriented,

  • they are not interested in the soil,

  • definitely not interested in the manure, and all the other things,

  • but they want flowers and fruit.

  • If you want flowers without soil, manure, water and sunlight,

  • well, you will have to settle for plastic flowers.

  • Plastic flowers are very wonderful.

  • Those who think of utility, it serves you in many different ways.

  • It comes with a five-year guarantee.

  • Flowers are a nuisance (Laughs).

  • If you keep flowers in your house,

  • you have to look at them, at least five times in a day, what's happening.

  • Are they thriving well or not?

  • But if you keep plastic flowers in your home, five years guarantee...

  • unlike your life.

  • If you're alive, there is so much to do,

  • you even have to dodge the virus, invisible virus.

  • But the dead only have to be preserved. So essentially,

  • the dimension and the process that you're referring to as meditation,

  • is very life-oriented.

  • When I say life-oriented, today largely

  • you're material-oriented, or, at the most, mind-oriented,

  • maybe emotion-oriented, or physical body, which is a material, again.

  • Largely life has become like this. People's idea of life is,

  • if someone says "my life," (Laughs)

  • you're supposed to understand, they're talking about their job,

  • they're talking about the economic condition in the country or in the world,

  • about their car, maybe about their dog, sometimes about their husbands or wives.

  • It could be anything. But, the only thing that's truly life,

  • is what is throbbing in this (Referring to oneself) – this is life.

  • Rest are arrangements that we have made, hoping

  • that these arrangements will allow us to enhance our life.

  • Whether it's education, career,

  • relationships, marriage, children, wealth,

  • whateverall these things one is after,

  • only in the hope that it will enhance our life.

  • As you know, most people, instead of enhancing their life,

  • largely get entangled with these accessories.

  • Accessories have become larger than the life process.

  • Well, I think (Laughs), in a very cruel way,

  • the virus is bringing focus on the life.

  • You suddenly understand

  • your expensive home has become a prison.

  • Your expensive car is as good as junk,

  • because you can't drive it, at least for some time.

  • And right now, the world is in a situation where we do not know how long,

  • how long will it take before you're back on the road and swing around a little bit in your automobile.

  • You do not know. So now naturally, a whole lot of people

  • are asking all over the world, how to meditate, what should I do?

  • As I said, you cannot meditate, but you can become meditative, because it's a quality.

  • If one cultivates their body, mind, emotion

  • and energies to a certain level of maturity,

  • you will be naturally meditative twenty-four hours of the day.

  • Meditation is not an impairment,

  • that if you're meditative, you have to close your eyes and be limited to one place.

  • Meditation is a phenomenal empowerment that

  • you can do whatever is needed in the world, whatever, I mean that.

  • Whatever is needed in the given situation,

  • and still remain untouched by the process of activities

  • that we need to conduct in the world.

  • This empowerment, or without this empowerment,

  • in fact, a human being is crippled, because

  • if what you have to think, feel, understand, and act in the world

  • is going to rub off on you in such a big way,

  • naturally you will hesitate to do what is needed.

  • Naturally, you will avoid doing things that need to be done.

  • In a way, the moment you are in a state where

  • your own activity and the activity of the world around you,

  • and the activity of your mind and your emotion,

  • once they're impacting you every moment of your life,

  • then, in some way, you will cripple yourself, because

  • naturally you would want to keep the scale of your life very limited,

  • because activity, thought, emotion, involvement with life

  • can cause enormous amount of suffering.

  • Once there is fear of suffering, knowingly or unknowingly,

  • you will limit the scope and possibilities of your life.

  • Meditation means just this, in a very simple way if we have to put it,

  • if you sit here, your body is here,

  • your mind is there, who you are is little away from these two dimensions

  • of physical body and mental accumulations.

  • These two accumulations of body and mind, if a little space arises between you and this,

  • this is the end of suffering, and this is meditativeness.

  • Isha Kriya is an extremely simple process, but a powerful tool.

  • These three ingredients: your breath, your thought, and your awareness,

  • in the right combination, if you use them,

  • your ability to use the mind and the body is so greatly enhanced,

  • that you almost look superhuman for somebody else.

  • But I'm telling you, this is human, this is not about being superhuman.

  • This is about realizing being human, is super.
