Practice English Speaking&Listening with: ENGLISH SPEECH | SADHGURU: Developing an Inclusive Consciousness (English Subtitles)

Difficulty: 0


thank you so much for joining us today

said guru I think the audience is very

interested in what you have to say I

guess to start they define inclusive

consciousness I'd love to hear your

thoughts on the did not define it they

did not okay well I was just gonna ask

you what's missing so so you can you can

start with all due respect they spoke

about intent right intent they thought

they spoke about right kind of thoughts

emotions attitudes and to some extent

actions there is no consciousness in

this if we are understanding that the

way we think feel and act is of a

consciousness no it is like we are

mistaking a plant we are mistaking the

flower for the soil we are mistaking

expressions for the source this is

something that's happening everywhere

not just here people think by changing

attitudes their consciousness will

change no by changing attitude certain

actions will change yes positive

beneficial but it is not truly

transformative change will happen

transformation will not happen if I have

to define a distinction between change

and transformation change means the

residue of the past will still remain a

transformation means nothing of the past

will remain which is what is needed

today if you want to create a new world

if you want a new generation to have a

fresh life it's been expressed in so

many ways being in this part of the

world what they're familiar with

generally someone said leave the dead to

the dead it's very significant

this is not coming out of recklessness

this is not coming out of unconcern but

this is coming with the concern that you

must be a fresh life you can learn many

things from the past about how to

conduct yourself but there is nothing to

learn from the past about how to be

because you are a complete life by

yourself you don't have to learn how to

be a life from the past maybe you have

to learn how to be a good engineer maybe

you have to learn how to be something

else in the society from the past but

you don't have to learn how to be a life

from the past because past has nothing

to do with this this is a fresh life and

this is a complete life consciousness is

that dimension which is the very source

of who we are our intentions our actions

our thoughts and our attitudes or a

consequence of that or in other words we

are trying to fix the consequence

without fixing the source

now all these distinctions of variety of

things that they said gender

discrimination racial discriminations

every kind okay somebody is Hindu

somebody's a muslim somebody's a Google

it becomes a religion after some time

believe me 2nd generation they will

become a religion by themselves yes I'm

saying you you see a football match

going on it's like a religion two

different clubs they are willing to

fight and kill each other just a game so

where does this come from

see our the nature of being human is


you should give me two minutes

see there are four dimensions of our

mind in modern societies the nature

nature of our education has constipated

our mind in such a way because we are

just largely using this one dimension

which we call as the intellect the other

dimensions of mind if I have to use

Indian terminology

it means Buddha ahankara - and chitta

what Buddha means is the intellect you

do what you want

the nature of the intellect is to slice

things open and see if you leave the

world in the hands of your intellect

your intellect will chop it into your

million pieces and will want to chop it

into further micro pieces and want to

chop it into further micro micro pieces

depending upon how sharp your intellect

is the sharper you intellect the more

you dissect the world you cannot stop it

because that is the nature of the

intellect and it's good so you must

apply intellect only to know the

material aspects of life you can't know

life this way there if I want to know

you can i dissect you


so but if I want to know if a doctor

wants to know a some aspect of you

materially what's wrong with you he will

take a biopsy and in a way he opens it

up and looks at it it's okay in that

level but I can't know you as a person

by dissecting you I can't know you as a

life by dissecting you I can know a part

of your body

maybe similarly I can know parts of the

world to make use of it but I can't know

life as such so you intellect has been /

Allah just in the last hundred hundred

fifty years this is a European impact on

the rest of the world where we think our

thought is supreme someone went to the

extent of saying I think so I so I exist

or whatever I want to ask all of your

simple question tell me is it because we

exist we may think or is it because we

think we exist which way is it

hello because we exist we may think

because people are in such a state of

mental diarrhea all the time

non-stop it's going on they think it's

more of an existence than existence but

my head is all the time empty unless I

want to think about something so I know

thought is not necessary I can just live

here without the thought when I want I

will think otherwise I will keep quiet

just like my hand if I want to use it

otherwise I keep it here similarly you

must be able to do this with your mind

just because you lost control over your

mind and you think it's everything

because it's entering into every aspect

of your life where it has no business

thought has been over alleged by people

and the very nature of the thought is

such that if you think it must be


it cannot be any other way well what

somebody is thinking may may look

illogical to you but they have found

their own logic the most extreme person

that you have met within himself or

herself they have their own logic is

so they are not speaking in logically as

far as they're concerned they have found

their own kind of logic logic means it

needs to logic means it needs division

now with logically you're trying to

arrive at inclusive consciousness it's

not going to happen because you're using

a knife to stitch this is not going to

work if you use a knife to cut it

sufficient you use a knife to stitch

things together

you'll only tear it up further so my

thought and your thought I'm telling you

whatever great meetings you have

conference I have been to every kind of

peace conference on the planet what

happens there it's just short of war

after some time it heats up on the

second day anyway it's over they all get

drunk in the evening and they go home if

you make them stay there for a week I'm

telling you right there there will be a

battle yes it is true I'm not saying

this with any disdain I made a sincere

effort to participate in all these

conferences at one time believing they

are going to lead to peace but

eight years ago I decided I'll never

again go to these events because people

are professional conference attendees

they're making a living out of it it's

not about peace so the next dimension of

intelligence is called as ahankara

Ankara means identity this is important

that in modern societies we have not

cultured our children to culture their

identity when I say identity the

fundamental identity for you is always

your body this racial thing that

concerns him and concerns all of us I'm

darker than him you know

I face it all the time joyfully but I

face it everywhere I go I have extra

features which make me further

discriminated but our first identities

with the body when we identified with

the body the color of the skin also

becomes part of it why do we identify

with the body because our experience is

limited to this if you say me you mean

this isn't it because your experience of

life is limited to this naturally you

are identified with this and this is you

and this is how you look somebody looks

so different

whether in gender or because of race or

because of maybe just fashion who knows

what makes them different but suddenly

this is me that's you is established but

we sit here in this hall whatever the

color of our skin whatever our religion

whatever agenda we are inhaling and

exhaling the same air but we have no

issue body has no problem but the

identity has a problem you are

identified with something we have not

cultured our children right from an

early age that your identity should be

universal this is something in India

traditionally before you start education

for a child there's something called us

with the Rambam where the first chant

that they must do is that my

identification with the exact are cosmos

without this you should not give

education to a child that is the

understanding because education is seen

as an empowerment you should not empower

a person who has limited identifications

because it doesn't matter whether it's a

of individual nature or a family or of

community or race religion nation it

doesn't matter

once you have limited identity you will

cause disharmony you will cause cruel

things thinking your

right thing I know the debate the source

of I mean the her debate always goes to

Isis and things like this I want you to

understand this these people looking at

their actions you may be sitting here I

know I am getting into a minefield

sitting here all of us think these are

horrible people but you must understand

this they believe they are doing the

greatest thing that a human being can do

they're working for God there can be no

better employer not Google God you've

never prayed to I'm saying you should

have seen this you you know I'm sure you

guys can google anything you must see

there is a press meet that the Afghan

Taliban is conducting with the

international media just before United

States invaded Afghanistan all these

young guys with long beards and big big

turbans they're all sitting like this

and they're asking questions just then

there'd be no bomb that Buddha statue

and they made this thing that girls

should not go to school and many other

things so these kind of questions are

coming whatever you ask them they say

you know in our book in our holy book

our prophet our God said this this this

we are just doing that I was just

watching this guy's I had tears in my


these are wonderful guys these are guys

who are willing to die for what they

believe in but they've been screwed up

by the Scriptures yes

these are wonderful people who are

willing to die for what they think is

right all right a man who's willing to

die for what he thinks is right is a

great man but look at the consequence

simply because of limited identity

so this ahankara this identity is what

wills the intellect if you hold the

right identity from an early age if it's

brought into us that your identity is

with the entire cosmos because nothing

happens here without everything's

involvement in

we are sitting on this round planet

which is spinning and moving at a great

speed in the middle of nowhere you don't

know where it begins where it ends this

thing and see look at us sitting here

and talking how many forces how many

forces in the existence are keeping you

and me in place on this channel so there

is no way we can exist without the

involvement of all this but talking

about this intellectually is not going

to help because if you try to understand

intellectually you're using a knife

further you will divide so there is

another dimension of intelligence within

you which can make you come to an

experience of this the next dimension of

intelligence is called as Manas Manas

means is a huge silo of memory there are

eight types of memory in this I will I

just named them I'll not go into this

these eight types of memory are referred

to as elemental memory atomic memory

evolutionary memory karmic memory

sensory memory and in the karmic memory

there are two types one is called

sanchita and prarabdha there is a bank

of memory which determines the very

shape and size of your body there's

another one which is right now in play

so two dimensions of karmic memory in

articulate memory that there is memory

but you can never articulate but it's

finding expression when you see a chair

you know this is where you should sit

not there you didn't think about it

because there is a memory in you that

this is where you must sit when you see

a glass you know this is how you must

hold this is not simple without this

knowledge you cannot do this there is an

enormous memory which allows you to do

almost everything automatically because

an inarticulate memory is constantly in

action and there is articulate memory

which is very miniscule part of your

memory the next dimension of

intelligence is most important this is

called as chitta this is an intelligence

without an iota of memory in it

unsullied by memory see memory means a

boundary you guys are always dealing

with information

today or in technology I think memory

does not mean what's here memory means

all over the place memory is a boundary

what I know is always a boundary what I

do not know is a limitless possibility

isn't it we have misunderstood the power

of ignorance our knowledge is always

bound within boundaries our ignorance is

boundless so always in the yogic system

we identified with our ignorance never

with our knowledge this is something we

must do in a technology company because

that's where the possibility is that is

where the new terrain is in your

ignorance not in your knowledge so

Chitra is unsullied by memory it's just

pure intelligence right now if you eat

an apple it turns into a human being you

cannot do it with your brains even your

brains were created from by what you eat

isn't it there is an intelligence here

which is capable of transforming

anything to this because it is making

use of the memory in the Manas and

making this happen

but the most important dimension of your

intelligence is cipta in today's

education systems in today's social

conditions there is no effort to dip

into deeper dimensions of our

intelligence we're just too enamored

with our own intellect and now using

this knife to stitch everything well you

should know that even at Google when we

interview people we have something

called GCA that we look for which is

general cognitive ability I suppose that

that would fall into that intellect

dimension most of us weren't raised

where they were we were told from an

early age to identify with the cosmos so

is there any hope for us or are we are

we lost

see identifying with the cosmos is just

another thought as a thought it doesn't

do much it makes people little Airy

brain and they'll start acting funny you

become new agey you know I love the


it's very easy to love the cosmos

because it's not here with you you got

to love somebody next to you there's

lots of problems say this wanting to set

up boundaries the instinct of wanting to

set up boundaries is so deep you see a

dog peeing all over the place not

because he has some urinary problem

he's building a kingdom you know it's a

Peking ham but it's a kingdom alright he

is building a kingdom every human being

also doing the same thing because there

are two dimensions of your intelligence

one is designed to create

self-preservation one aspect of your

intelligence is designed for

self-preservation which is you intellect

the cheetah that dimension of the

intelligence is designed to make you

expand once you have come as a human

being this is your issue fundamentally

whoever you are whatever you are right

now in your life you want to be

something more if that something more

happens you want to be something more if

that something more happens you want to

be something more I'm sure you guys want

to set up Google Maps for Mars yes if

that happens for the entire universe if

it's possible because this is the nature

of being human

there is one dimension which always

wants to expand another dimension which

always wants to build walls you build a

wall you feel safe after two days you

feel you understand the walls of

self-preservation are also the walls of

self imprisonment you want to break it

you break it and you put a new wall

there and you think this is great this

is freedom after some time you feel

that's not it and you want to expand it

these two dimensions are not opposing

each other they are not diametrically

opposite to each other they are

complementary there is only one thing

about you which needs preservation

that's your physicality this body must

be preserved because if you break it you

can't fix it everything else in you

right now suppose I take out all your

thoughts all your emotions all your

ideas all your philosophies

all your belief systems and trash them

right here break them into pieces you

can come up with fresh thoughts fresh

emotions fresh belief systems breath

philosophies just like that

so all those must be everyday put into

the what do you call them the shredder

job you must have a polarizer because

shredder means they'll go again pick it

up and fix it you must have a pulverizer

for yourself before you go to bed

today's ideas today starts today's

belief systems today's experiences you

must leave the dead to the dead let me

challenge let me challenge that because

I thought something that pop nice said

was very interesting and she said almost

the wound becomes the heel are you

sometimes you hear the wound the wound

did become the healer so you can take

some of that can't you not transform

some of those things that have been

difficult and use that energy use your

intellect to do something for good see

the experience of life can cause two

things all this is nice when things

small things happen when really major

things happen to you

the wounds are so big for people they

don't heal in a lifetime many of them

okay so the choice is just this the

experience of life whatever happens to

us you can you can either make it into

your wound or into wisdom

you can either become wise or you can

become wounded if you become wise you

will become a solution if you become

undead you will also become one more

problem this is a choice we have

so where does this wisdom come from how

do we access if we're so used to using

one of these four and probably like most

of people in the audience I wasn't even

aware of that there's these other

dimensions what's the starting point

what's a way to access beyond the

intellect sees like this right now that

is what in this class this is definitely

not you yes yet if you drink it it

becomes you what is it that you did with

this water that's something that's not

you became you when you say

inclusiveness this is all you're talking

about something that is not you you want

to make it a part of you in some way

isn't it so this is right now not you

but if you drink it it becomes you so

what is it that happened technically for

you is just this right now I'm asking

you you take your right hand all of you

take your right hand and touch your left

hand is that you hello touch the chair

on which you're sitting is that you how

do you know this what is the basis of

this how do you know this is me and this

is not me

here there are sensations here there are

no sensations or in other words what you

are saying is whatever is in the

boundaries of my sensation is me

whatever is outside the boundaries of my

sensation is not me isn't it right now

this is not me if I drink it and include

it into the boundaries of my sensation

this becomes me isn't it now

the boundaries of your sensations are

such that if you make your life energies

very exuberant you will see they will

expand if it happened to you suppose it

should have happened to many of you

there was a moment in your life when you

felt so joyful tears came to you did it

happen to you you were so joyful and

loving tears came to you at such a

moment if you take your hand and just

put it six to eight inches away from

your body right here you will feel

sensations if such things did not happen

to you I can do something horrible to

you so that you experience something you

can chop off your right leg if you chop

off your right leg the leg is gone but

still the sensory leg may remain intact

for a period of time you heard of this

phantom leg like his physical leg is

gone but the sensory leg is still there

this means sensory body has a structure

of its own if your energies become very

vibrant and exuberant within you your

sensory body all-expense whatever

suppose my sensory body became as big as

this now you become a part of me in my

experience if it became as big as this

hall all these people become a part of

me in my experience because my sensory

body has stretched we can do a small

experiment you okay to be a guinea hello

what we will do is with your eyes closed

you have to do this but right now

observe me what you do is with your eyes

closed just rub this briskly like this

for two minutes let me say one minute

and briskly

okay keep your eyes closed and just hold

your farms three to four inches away

from each other

did you ask closed

something happening between your hands


okay please open your eyes so just a

little bit of rubbing you didn't do it

for a minute either just 20 seconds you

rub it and suddenly something happening

between these two hands

simply because because a vigorous moment

the sensory body has expanded you can

feel something happening right here you

know why people are rubbing each other

all the time

it's an effort it's an effort to include

someone who is not a part of you as

yourself if this happens if this happens

in a very basic physical level we call

this sexuality if it happens emotionally

we call this love if it happens mentally

it gets labelled as greed and ambition

and conquest if it happens on the level

of your sensory body we call this yoga

now Yoga means Union Union does not mean

you cause the Union anyway it is

happening as one you allowed yourself to

experience it

that means the walls of

self-preservation you loosened up a

little bit that's all why you want

somebody close to you why you want a

loud one in your life is somewhere you

want to loosen the walls of

self-preservation where you don't have

to worry about protecting yourself

suddenly you feel one with them and once

you feel one with them in some way you

want to be in touch with them because

you're trying to loosen up your sensory

body in such a way that you can

experience that which is not a part of

you as a part of yourself now this need

not limited me to be one person or

anything like that

these need not be biologically connected

if you can sit here with your life

energies at its peak of exuberance you

will experience the whole universe as

yourself then we say you're a yogi and

you had that experience 34 years ago you

talked about it a little bit yesterday

I'm just curious for those of us that

haven't had a peak experience where

we've had this sense of union what what

advice what what step would you take if

we are that place where we think all

right I'm willing to try this out I'm a

skeptic I want to don't know what the

sensory body is I had a little taste of

it here what would be the next step if

we wanted to try for ourselves say let's

describe what is being skeptic being a

skeptic means you don't believe anything

unless it truly makes sense to you most

people are just downright suspicious but

they think they're skeptics no they are

not they don't qualify as skeptics this

is suspicious about everything this

comes from a certain fear within you

that everything around you can be wrong

suspicion means you made a conclusion

about something that you do not know

believing something positively or

believing something negatively is not

different they are the same things you

believe something that you do not know

if you skeptic means whatever I do not

know I do not know I don't assume things

in my life what I know I know I think

everybody should come to this much sense

and straightness in our life that what I

know I know what I do not know I do not

know it's perfectly fine I do not know

it's a tremendous possibility only if

you see I do not know the longing to

know seeking to know and the possibility

of knowing arises so if you are a

skeptic you are an ideal candidate if

you're a believer we have to make you

you know debrief you shredder out

because you assume too many things that

you do not know you know the geography

of heaven though you can't operate the

local Google map okay well we'll be

taking questions so be thinking about

the question you might want to have I

think you know one more question I want

to ask is how do we we've been talking

about some things that are that are very

big I think there

promising but yet think about the

conversation we had earlier and how do

we tie these two things together how do

they relate in your mind those of you

who are interested because right now we

must understand this your intellect

needs data to function yes or no yelloww

without data your intellect is useless

it needs data that's why you guys are in

the business everybody knows everything

in the universe right now because not

because they went there and saw it

because they googled it up because

intellect feels stupid without a day

without data now the nature of the

intellect is like this only that it

feeds upon the data where does the data

come to you what you see what you hear

what you smell what you taste what you

touch in the very nature of things these

five sense organs which are the main

agents of gathering information for you

are all outward bound you can see what's

around you you can't roll your eyeballs

inward and scan yourself you can hear

this so much activity here you cannot

hear this if an ant crawls upon your

hand you can feel it so much blood

flowing you cannot feel it because in

the very nature of things your sense

organs are outward bound you cannot use

these to turn inward there's another

dimension of perception which needs to

be activated why is it not active in me

because the sense organs are instruments

of survival they come on when you are

born whatever kind of you are anyway it

comes on it comes on for a dog big cat

elephant for everybody similarly it

comes on for us whatever is needed for

survival for any biological creature it

turns on at the time of birth because

it's needed otherwise you won't survive

but anything beyond survival process

without striving it would not have

entered your life isn't it anything that

you know from an alphabet to whatever

else you know I'm sorry I'm not talking

about your brand

I'm talking about the real alphabets

anything that you know from reading to

writing to using a computer or a singing

a song or whatever you know these things

with certain striving I want you to

remember when you're three four years of

age that damn a how complicated it was

as if it was not good enough there were

two versions of it which freaked the

hell out of you today you can write with

your eyes closed but still there are

adults in the world who did not strive

in that direction even today you asked

them to write they will struggle yes or


without striving anything beyond

survival would not enter your life and

will not enter your life so turning

inward is not a survival process so

there are two fundamental dimensions

within you instinct of self-preservation

longing to expand limitlessly both are

true for a human being this is

essentially a human problem on the

planet no other creature wants to expand

limitlessly they are only thinking of

survival their stomach full life settled

for you stomach empty only one problem

stomach full 100 problems yes all your

trouble begins after after stomach gets

full isn't it because this is longing to

expand limitlessly in the evolutionary

process we can say this for every other

creature nature has drawn two lines

within which they live and die they're

quite fine but once you become human

there is only a bottom line there is no

top line so what humanity is suffering

and confused about is not their bondage

their suffering that freedom what do you

do with them

Wow all right well I'm gonna invite

anyway all these identities yeah of

religion race caste creed nationality is

they're trying to set their own bondage

because no bondage has been given to you

by nature you trying to set your own

bondage so that you feel secure somehow

and so that's part of the the motivation

that's driving all these all these

identities being identified with the

color of your skin with whatever

nonsense you believe in and nationality

just a cloth a flag people will stand

there and tears will come to them isn't


just look at that it really amazes me

and it's on one level it's beautiful on

another level it's super ugly that you

get identified with all these kind of

things people cannot get identified with

a symbol with a word with just about

anything all right so you're trying to

create some artificial boundary of your


once you create this boundary and you

have another boundary I have my boundary

when they meet we clash


so if you have a question please go

ahead and come to the mic and again

we're trying to think about this topic

of inclusive consciousness you've heard

a lot of things shared from our VPS and

also from this conversation so let's

hear what's on your mind based on all

this over here hello

so I'm among I'm involved in organizing

a peace conference in India and it's a

very grassroots led efforts and no

politicians thank God and I found it

interesting that you said you stopped

attending peace conferences so I'd love

to hear from you any advice on what we

should do or what we should avoid to

make this small effort a success for the

people who are attending see when you

say no politicians thank God you just

not attending to the source of problems

politicians are not another breed of

people a Democratic Society means

tomorrow you may become the president of

this nation that's what it means yes if

you are willing to stick your neck out

you may become the president of this

country or a prime minister of another

country so politician did not drop from

the sky he is not some other creature

he's just like you and me he stuck his

neck out which you and me are not

willing to do let's admit this it's not

it's not a easy thing it's easy to sit

down and comment but it's not an easy

thing to try to run a nation it's it's

it's complex believe me so you must have

politicians but you must haven't

Monsieur where it's not political in

nature where they will also let their

hair down and talk like common citizens

or human beings but without them what

are you going to change so peace

conferences if it's just an

entertainment you can gather your

friends and have a peace conference but

if you want peace in the planet the most

important politicians the most powerful

politicians in this world must be there

only then there is a possibility of

peace isn't it otherwise it's just

entertainment I'll tell you I was in a

very important Peace Conference they

were 42 Nobel laureates each one of them

pulling out ten twenty one of them 44 45

pages of printed sheets without even

looking up at anybody just went on

reading their space speeches from

morning to evening and slowly the hall

was becoming peaceful

I in one afternoon the second day

afternoon I'm sitting right here in the

front row and I look around literally

everybody has fallen asleep except the

security man who's standing there and me

the idiot who's sitting up there and

believing there's going to be world

peace because of this conference and

sitting up there alert listening to

every word then I looked around

everybody's become very peaceful they've

been having late-night parties and

they're all very peaceful then when my

turn to keep the speak came I said see

I've heard so much peace since yesterday

I want to ask you can all of you or any

of you put your hand on your heart and

say you are genuinely peaceful in your

life they were straight enough they said

no we are not peaceful I said if you

cannot make your mind peaceful how the

hell are you going to make the world

peaceful what's happening in the world

is just a larger manifestation of the

nonsense that's happening in our heads

isn't it if you and me were truly

peaceful human beings do we have to

worry about you and me fighting some day

hello whatever the issues we'll sit down

and handle it right because there is

violence in us now we have to have a

boundary here there's a barricade just

in case I get violent or you get violent

how about from the side over there hi

just a very basic question you mentioned

that before we start education of our

children we should try and make sure

that their identity is the cosmos but

how do you do that when we ourselves are

so hardwired I mean how do we tell our

children that their identity is more

when my own thinking is so limited when

my own identity is so limited how do I

pass something like that to a child when

I am not capable of doing that myself

anyway whatever you tell your children

your children don't listen to you you

better if you if you have them on the

way I'm telling you for warning you they

don't listen to a damn thing that you're

saying but they observe you they pick up

things from the way you're behaving

if you don't show that in your life your

teachings will be hated after some time

yes many see this is most unfortunate I

just see this happening to so many

people when they have a child these

parents they did everything possible to

the child they thought this is their

life oh not just changing diapers so

many things everything possible they

thought they're living for this person

as this person becomes bigger and in

there over concern about how this child

should be trying to teach him the best

things in the universe which they which

is not true in their lives slowly you

see by the time he becomes a teenager he

awards them if he wants to share

something if he wants to listen to some

sense he goes to his friends never to

his parents not everybody I'm saying but

largely it is happening because they

don't make sense the top things that

doesn't make sense people ask me keep

asking me such guru how did you become

like this

what is the southerner you did you just

played your life and you are like this

this is all I did I strive to

remain uneducated it's not easy believe

me from the day you're born just

everybody around you is trying to teach

you something that did not work in their

life you can clearly see it's not worked

in their life because if you did work

they should have been joyful and

ecstatic it's not worked they become

long-faced but they're teaching you all

kinds of best things now the universe

it's not going to work you don't have to

say a word I will tell you it's okay I

can share something I brought up my girl

alone at the age of seven she lost her

mother so one rule I put she's been

traveling is traveling with me since

she's four and a half years of age okay

I'm sorry

since he's four and a half months not

years four and a half I sent her to

school with little infant she traveled

with me and I made one rule wherever I

went always stayed with many many

families all over the country I always

told everybody never teach her anything

no ABC no one two three no rhyme no


I don't want anybody to teach her

anything people thought this is strange

what's that girl's done has a test level

by the time she was 18 months she was

speaking three languages fluently

because nobody messed with her and she

grew up joyfully went to school

everything at the age of 13 something

she was disturbed at school and she came

back home when one day she said you're

teaching everybody so many things you're

not telling me anything I said well I

don't do anything unsolicited

have been waiting it's alright now you

come there's only one thing you need to

know I said never look up to anybody she

looked at me what about you kind of

thing in her face

I said not even me never look up to

anybody never look down on anybody

that's all you have to do with life

never look up to anything or anybody

never look down on anything or anybody

suddenly you will see life just the way

it is right now

something is high something is low

something is God something is devil

something is virtue something is sin you

divided the universe in a million

different ways and then you're trying to

fix it it's not going to work the

instrument which broke the world into

pieces is your intellect with that

you're trying to fix everything it's not

going to work now this racism thing it's

it's disastrous that in 21st century

everyday there is a shooting I think

this has been happening all the time

only now because of cell phones and

Facebook it's out there and everybody

knows I think it's been happening right

through all right at one time it was

happening legally it's now it's been

happening illegally now this kind of

things are happening because we are

using our intellect to fix the problem

you are using a knife to stitch this is

not going to work

you just live that way whichever way you

live your children will grasp it and

they'll make a sense out of that in

their own way and maybe they'll fall

this way or that way because you are not

the only influence upon them you better

know that you are going to be a mother

you must know this you are not the only

influence there are all kinds of people

in this Google Satguru you talked about

identity and inclusive consciousness so

I want to know let's say like you talked

about the sensory body and feeling that

everyone is part of you

kind of thing so where does the role of

action comes in so if I do something do

identify myself with

what I did and let's say if I feel that

you are or everyone is part of like me

or the whole cosmos and you do something

is it you doing something cosmos doing

something me doing something whether the

action comes in picture see this is the

beauty of our existence in this

existence in this cosmos we are not even

a speck of dust that's small we are but

still creation is given as an

individuality an individual nature that

we can experience these things but

countless number of people who lived on

this planet before you and me came where

are they they're all top soil they

become part of that isn't it so if you

get it from me today you can transform

your life that really everything is a

part of you and you are a part of

everything not as a thought but

experientially if you can experience

everything around you as you experience

the five ten fingers of your hands then

you will see life becomes tremendously

beautiful otherwise anyway one day you

will get it from the maggots but it'll

be a bit too late lesson but any

everybody will get it one day isn't it

hello when people barriers we're going

to get the point that we are part of

that right now if we get it we can live

sensibly so this must come from an

experience if you come from a thought

again your thinking how's inclusiveness

and individuality existing at the same

time that is the beauty of this

existence it is the filth which has

become the flower isn't it

yes or no it is the filth which has

become the flower if in your mind

filters different flower is different

but in existence filth and flower are

same they are not different just

different ways of existing for your

Knolls filth doesn't feel good but if

you are a pig you would like the filth

nothing wrong with that because it's the

same thing it's the same thing or no


it's the same thing isn't it it is just

that in our mind in with our intellect

we are breaking everything this breaking

is only a psychological reality this is

not exist actually true see we started a

huge moment called project greenhands I

think something little bit was there in

this this happened like this when I saw

that entire southern India was turning

into desert very rapidly rivers were

drying up

groundwater went from like 150 feet to

almost 1500 feet and palm trees the

Crown's were falling off with that we

must do something then I did this to him

one day I called in I went to a small

village and called for people about 5000

people turned up so I made the miss

around 11 o'clock in the morning the

weather won't is won't is not like this

in southern India it's hot Summer Sun I

made them sit there close by there were

about 5 rain trees 3 of them really

large ones you seen rain trees some of

them can be out as large as an acre it's

it's shade so three of them are really

large ones

two of them were medium sized ones very

attractive I would allow to be under

those trees but I made them sit here in

hot Sun and I went on talking stretching

the talk telling them stories telling

them jokes they were all very

enthusiastic in the beginning slowly if

you're walking around you won't feel the

Sun if you just sit under the Sun it

just really gets you about one and a

quarter one and a half hours they were

really going away they're thinking

what's wrong with the Satguru

he was just frying us in the Sun then I

said come and I took them under the tree

everybody suddenly you know what is a

tree otherwise you were thinking how to

make furniture out of this

now suddenly you know what city I made

them sit down there and breathe it's a

certain spiritual process that I set up

a process for them where I told them

what you exhale trees are inhaling what

they exhale you are inhaling once they

experienced it now you can't stop them

from planting trees they planted over 28

million trees and you can't stop them

they change the entire culture but when

you know this happened to me about 10 9

10 years ago I went back to my cell city

which had not gone and done any work

there I'd never spoken there I avoided

this because my family lives there I

wanted to be anonymous in the town not

recognized but because of Google and

stuff I got recognized everywhere so

when I went there they insisted I must

do something I called for a program all

kinds of people turned up my

kindergarten school friends teachers my

college teachers school teachers

everybody when I spoke and all this

happened then my English teacher came up

to me from school and she said now I

understand why would let me teach Robert

Frost I said ma'am why would I not let

you teach Frost

I like Frost I have some poetry in his

own voice I said I like Frost why would

I not let you teach don't you remember

you didn't let me teach Frost

then I remembered one day she came up

and we were always studying English

poems ending you know English literature

suddenly she introduced this American

poet and said this Robert Frost is a

great guy and she started off the point

woods are lovely dark and deep I said

stop I said a man who calls a tree of

wood I'm not going to have anything to

do with this guy she said no no Robert

Frost is agree I don't care who the hell

is he calls three a wood I am NOT going

to listen to the guide and let her teach

we chose Longfellow it's a frost because

I didn't let her teach Frost that here

so I'm saying we if you call a tree of

wood it's a commodity this water this

earth that you walking from the people

that you see these are not commodities

this is life isn't it the air that you

breathe the water that you drink the

soil that you walk upon the trees that

you sit under everything else in this

world is life and life making material

for you if you forget this you will

treat it as commodity if you experience

this that this is actually what is

making your life then you will see the

most fantastic thing about this

universities everything is one but

everything is separate at the same time

that's what this gives us an experience

that's why I can sit here and talk to

you otherwise how to talk to you maybe

one more question hi so guru thank you

for coming so for me one way to achieve

inclusiveness is to see other people as

ourselves for example right now I know

for sure that you exist within me

because your voice happens within my

head your image no no no if wars are

happening everything your head it means

something else so your your image

happens within me because it reflects

through my eyes you mean to say you have

nightmares every day well so so some my

point is I see you within me that's

that's I know for sure but I wonder

whether you see me within you as well

and if you answer yes or no then that

may be a belief because how do I know

it's true see there are two levels of

reality here there is a psychological

reality and there's an existence in

reality exists an shall' reality is not

you're making psychological realities

entirely you're making but a large part

of it is unconsciously made so you

believe it is real

whatever is true in your psychological

reality may have some social relevance

but has no exists angel' relevance

right now if I say you're within me

you'll feel good if I say I love you

you'll feel good maybe it's true for me

maybe it's true for you but it's not

floating around anywhere here okay it's

just my emotion and your emotion yes it

is nice that our emotions are sweet

our thoughts are sweet our actions are

sweet it's wonderful if it is so but it

has only psychological and social

relevance it has no existence already

means if you want to know life you have

to step out of this bubble called

psychological reality and step into

existence your reality then only you

have a taste of life otherwise you are

just a bundle of thoughts emotions ideas

opinions and now I am there in the in

all that so what I would tell all of you

is instead of thinking about it

instead of analyzing it an experiential

dimension has to happen if you are

willing to dedicate 28 to 30 hours of

focus time we will give you tools with

which you can make this happen for

yourself this is not some empty talk

this has happened to millions of people

this is worked and I must tell you first

21 years of my work as a rule I never

appeared in the media of course I didn't

have a website never put up one poster

or banner or even a brochure only by

word of mouth millions of people came

obviously it must have worked for them

to bring their family and friends and

now I'm not promising any miracle I'm

not taking you to heaven I'm telling you

the source of all your problems is you

not somebody else I'm saying it's hard

talk it is not some miraculous promise

of going to heaven some la-la-land is

there and everything will be fine for

you know in spite of that people

because they've saw the transformation

within themselves and people around them

had to come there was no other way so

I'm saying this is a technology of

well-being we are handling our external

well-being in a scientific way through

many means of Technology why is it that

we are so crippled when it comes to our

interior 'ti we are trying to handle it

through our emotions we are trying to

handle it through our philosophies we

are trying to handle it through our

ideologies and belief systems no it's

time you approach this human mechanism

in a scientific manner how to make this

into a full-fledged possibility see

every life in this world is only trying

to become a full-fledged life whether

it's a worm or an insect or a bird or an

animal or a tree all they're striving

for is to become full-fledged but we

know what is a full-fledged worm we know

what is a full-fledged insect we know

what is full-fledged everything but we

do not know what is a full-fledged human

being because even if I make you the

king or queen of this planet tomorrow

still you will aspire for the stars

because there is something within you

which is longing to become infinite if

you're longing for infinite you can't go

about conquering space it's not going to

get you there the finite nice to you has

come to you only because your

identification with your physicality

because the nature of physicality is a

defined boundary without a defined

boundary there is no physical nature but

is it true that this physical body you

slowly accumulated is it true or were

you born like this you accumulated this

what you accumulate can be yours it can

never ever be you or in other words you

are living your life without

experiencing the life that you are even

for a moment your entire involvement is

with your physiology and psychology it's

time it changes that you experience the

life that you are this life that you are

doesn't come with boundaries it's only

the body it is boundaries

you must stick to the boundaries it's

very important don't expand it too much

thank you very much thank you so much so
