#Adiyogi – The Source of Yoga

Over 15,000 years ago, at a time predating all religion, Adiyogi, the first yogi, appeared in the Himalayas.
He alternated between dancing in ecstasy and sitting in utter stillness where the only sign of life were his tears of bliss trickling down his cheeks. It was obvious he was experiencing something no one could fathom. People gathered around him in interest, but he was oblivious of their presence and eventually they all left. Except for seven intense seekers. They begged him, “Please, we want to know what you know.” Seeing their perseverance, Adiyogi gave them some preparatory sadhana. They did the sadhana with single-minded focus for 84 years, while Adiyogi ignored them. Then, on the day of the summer solstice, the start of Dakshinayana, Adiyogi noticed them to be shining receptacles of knowing. After closely observing them for the next 28 days, on the next full moon day, today known as Guru Pournami, he transformed into the first Guru, Adi Guru. On the banks of Kanti Sarovar, Adiyogi began a systematic exposition of the science of yoga to his first seven disciples, who today are celebrated as the Saptarishis.

He expounded 112 ways through which human beings can transcend their limitations and reach theirultimate potential. Adiyogi’s offerings are tools for individual transformation, as individual transformation is the only way to transform the world. His fundamental message is that “in is the only way out” for human wellbeing and liberation. It is time to that we addressed human wellbeing in a scientific way through subjective technologies.

A Historic Event

“Adiyogi predates all religion; in celebration of the universality of his methods, this glorious face of 112 ft height.”

Regenerate yourself in Nature


Sadhguru - There is substantial scientific evidence to show that within a single generation, the genetic structure of a particular family can deteriorate. It is not because our genes have become weak — we have become weak. Because we have become weak, the next generation will be weaker, unless they really strive. Of course, it can always be revived, but whether revival will happen is the question.

One day, you will have an electric car to drive you from your sitting room to your bedroom, and from your bedroom to the office – it may happen. Everything will be at the touch of a button. Touching buttons may also go away. If you verbally speak, everything will get typed and work will be done. You don’t have to use your body or your brains at any great length. So definitely, in a single generation, we can fall dramatically. It is already happening at an alarming rate. Simple physical things that we were capable of doing as children are like a circus for children today. Only the very athletic are able.

I was speaking to an elite group in Chennai. These young couples pride themselves on their fitness — walking on the treadmill, cycling and of course, all of the ladies are wearing size zero, so they think they are fit. I asked them a simple question, “Suppose you are walking on the street and a tiger came, how many of you could just climb a tree and save your life? Only those who are doing a laborer’s job, like building a road or digging a hole could do it.” They agreed. They may look reasonably fit, but they are not fundamentally strong within themselves. The very sinews of life within have become weak. This weakening is happening dramatically, and as technology makes you do less and less, both in the body and the brain, it becomes a very serious affair. This is probably how we will decimate ourselves, not by bombs, fire or riots. We will just peter out because we won’t have the strength to exist by ourselves.

Right now, a lot of people over eighty are on different types of life-support. If we continue to weaken, in fifty years, the age at which human beings need life-support may come down dramatically by ten or fifteen years. This is a serious weakening of the human structure. And the next generation will definitely inherit this genetic structure. This is one of the reasons we set up a yoga center in America, on some 1,300 acres of land. At first, everybody said, “This is crazy Sadhguru, we must buy twenty-five acres next to Atlanta.” But the purpose of the ashram is not just to have a center and meditate; it is to regenerate life.

I want many of you to live on the land, work on the land and become strong as life should be. You can conduct the spiritual process and do life in a way it needs to be done, not the way it is done in New York City or somewhere else – but do life strong. If we don’t do that, we won’t have much to say about humanity in the future. I am not saying one ashram is going to save this, this needs to happen in many places. We have to go back to the land. We have to live with the five elements and be exposed to the earth, sky, rain — these things need to happen. The forces of life are not just within your body; they are everywhere. Without being in communication with all five elements every day, life does not happen strong. We need to live strong. This purpose can be fulfilled with Yoga.

Love & Blessings,
Sadhguru

Krishnamurti on 9 to 5 job


QUESTION: The speaker has said that going to an office everyday from nine to five is an intolerable imprisonment. But in any society all kinds of jobs have to be done. Is K's teaching therefore only for the few?

You have understood? Shall I read it again? The speaker has said that human society is so constructed throughout the world that most people are occupied with jobs, pleasant or unpleasant, from nine to five everyday of their life. And he said also that it is an intolerable imprisonment. I don't know how you feel about it. Probably you like being in prison, probably you like your jobs from nine o'clock to five o'clock, rushing, rushing back and all the rest of it. What shall we do? To the speaker he wouldn't tolerate it for a single minute - for the speaker. I would rather do something which would be pleasant, helpful and necessary to earn enough money and so on. But most of us accept this prison, this routine - right? We accept it. So what shall we do? Nobody, as far as one is capable of sufficient observation, nobody has questioned this. We say it is normal, it is the way of society, it is the way of our life, it is the way we must live. But if we all see together that such an imprisonment, which it is actually, that we all feel it is intolerable, not just verbally but actually do something about it we will create a new society - right? We will if all of us say we will not tolerate for a single day this routine, this monstrous activity of nine to five, however necessary, however good and pleasant, then we will bring about not only psychological revolution but also outwardly. Right? We may agree about this but will we do it? You might say, "No, I can't do it because I have responsibility, I have children, I have a house and mortgage, insurance" - thank god I haven't got any of those! And so you might say, "It is easy for you to talk about all this." But it is easy for the speaker to talk about it because he refuses to go in that pattern. From boyhood he refused it.

Now if we all consider that such a psychological as well as physical revolution of this kind is necessary, not bloody and all the rest of it, then we will create the society - won't we? You want others to create the society and you can then slip into it. That is what we are all waiting for. A few struggle, work, create, and refuse to enter into this rat race and the others say, "Yes, after you have constructed what you think is right society, then we all join you" - but we don't do it together. That is the whole problem. Right? If we all had this, not idea but the fact, that to spend our life from nine o'clock to five o'clock probably before that, every day of our life for sixty years and more, we would do something about it. As if you refuse to have wars - you understand - wars, killing other people in the name of your country, your god, whatever the ideal is, if you all refused to kill another there would be no wars - right? But we have constructed a society, built a society, based on violence, armaments, each nation protecting itself against other nations, and so we are perpetuating wars, killing your sons, your daughters, everything. And we support it. In the same way we support, maintain this imprisonment. It may be pleasant for those who have an agreeable job but those who refuse to enter this game they will act, they will do something.

So the problem is, do we see the importance, or the necessity of this change? After all the human mind is not merely occupied with a particular job, pleasant or unpleasant. The human mind has the quality of other things which we disregard. We are concerned with the whole of life, not just a career, nine to five, how we live, what we do, what our thinking is, whether there is affection, care, love, compassion. All that is part of life. But we are so conditioned to this idea that we must work and create a structure of a society that demands that you work from morning until night. The speaker refuses to pay into that rat race. It isn't that he has got certain gifts or that somebody will look after him, but he refuse

Sadhguru visits Bahubali's temple in gomatagiri, mysore.



#Sadhguru : Is the white flower the most beautiful one or the red flower the most beautiful one, such questions don’t arise, out here.  Such questions have come from cultures, which are steeped in morality, as to something has to be good, as something has to be bad.  In this state, of making something right and making something wrong, there is no way a spiritual process can happen because essentially spiritual process means, all-inclusiveness.  If you cannot embrace everything, the way it is, if you have to accept some and reject some, than there will be no spiritual process. You will have only morality, no spirituality. 

This reminds me of a fantastic story, a situation rather, which happened in “Bahubali’s” life.  Myself and #Bahubali, for a few years, had a great affair.  There is a place called Gomatagiri which is a little over 25km from mysore city.  There is a 18 foot tall statue of Gomata, standing naked, on top of a rock.  It is, I think, a 1100 years old statue, which was lost with overgrowth of forest.  And probably about, in the late 60’s it was rediscovered.  The man who rediscovered it, a simple stone cutter, a illiterate person, went there to take a stone, and he discovered this statue, which is on top of a small hill or a bunch of rocks which are around 120ft tall and on top of it a 18 foot tall statue of Bahubali. 

I met this old man, he was in his 70’s and he was still cutting stones and when I spoke to him, a completely unschooled, untrained person.  He was such a amazing guy, just having found this #Gomateshwara, his whole life was transformed, he became a devotee.  A simple stone cutter, turned into a fantastic devotee.  I met him in 83 or 84, when I was there and conducted a few programs and spended  a certain amount of time in Gomatagiri.  There are any number of things that I can say about this place because so many things happened there.  This was the time in 1982, when my own experiences have blossomed but I was trying to find articulation on what was happening within me.  It was a very crucial time, when Gomateshwara came into my life and as I said we had a great affair. 

So there is a wonderful situation in Gomata’s life.  He and his brother had fought many battles together initially.  Later on, they fought against each other.  After having bloodbath, after having slaughtered thousands of people.  One day Bahubali realized, what is the point of all this bloodshed and he went and stood in penance, naked and just stood there.   You will always see the statue of Gomata standing naked with wines going over his head or his body.  This shows that he stood there for a very long time and he stood there for over 14 years. Everything that he could do to himself in terms of  purifying himself, he has done but still he could not attain.

When a Yogi, a Sage, of great attainment came by Gomata looked at him and just one tear drop slipped out of his eyes.  This one tear drop was a question mark, what is it.  I have done everything that I could do, what is holding me back, that’s the question.  Unuttered question, just a tear drop to ask this question to a Yogi, what is holding me back, I have done everything that I know.

Than the Yogi said, you have brought the false sense of humility into you.  You are a king but now you are willing to bow down to a beggar on the street.  You are willing to bow down to any creature in this planet, you are willing to bow down to the inanimate rock, you have made yourself like this, its wonderful but I see that you are incapable of bowing down to your brother with whom you have a fight.  It is this falseness of humility that is holding you back.

This was the moment of attainment for Bahubali.  Within himself, he did bow down to his little brother and he attained.

This is a very beautiful story because this is how the human being is held back.  Its not great things.  Its one little things that you can’t clear from your karmic space that holds you back.  Is it not unfair? How many things I did?  Right now, if a little finger gets stuck to this pillar, I have freed the whole body, my little finger is stuck, can I go somewhere?  I cannot go somewhere.  This is how it is.

Note : Gomateshwara is another name of Bahubali

My sharing - Are you interested in full time volunteering?

Fidarose : It was really one of the life transforming experience, after visiting this "In the Lap of the master" and "Guru Purnima" sathsang with Sadhguru. It is like leaving the snake skin of fear behind.

There are many people who are stuggling to make two ends meet here in this world. One category is; people who are desiring materiality success to fulfill their desires. They are not able to achieve this end but they are utterly engrossed in the world. I am not talking about this kind.
Then, there is second category of people; who have lost interest in the world but still stay in the world since they are attached to the past, the family. Even they are struggling to make the two ends meet but are failing every now and then. They are feeling guilty about it. They don't have to live this way.

They need to recognize themselves for "Who they are". These are the kind of people, whose only goal is to serve the world to make it a better place and dissolve themselves.

What I am saying is; they are devotees and they are trying to become a businessmen, which is not in their very nature of being.

Sadhguru shared that the next 12 years will be the golden period for spirituality and people all over the world are waiting eagerly that someone will come and impart this yogic knowledge to them.
If you are living a fulfilled life, nothing needs to be changed. But if you feel that there is something, which you are not living here as a dynamic being, then there is this opportunity , which is open for you.

For full time volunteering, call this number 8300098777, email them at volunteering@ishafoundation.org and visit the link www.ishafoundation.org/volunteer
 
In the just concluded Sathsang, Sadhguru was most welcoming for full time volunteers. Happy volunteering.
