Sadhguru – Every day I Do 20 seconds of sadhana, I have no regular exercise regimen!

Sadhguru – Every day I Do 20 seconds of sadhana, I have no regular exercise regimen!

[Mr. Chaudhry] So the first question, Sadhguru,
is – you’re probably among the busiest people in this country. You…… those of us who’ve seen you work,
it’s well past midnight. You’re probably up… if at all you are sleep
by three AM and health is all about stamina and fitness and
remaining in a peak state of awareness. Would you be happy to share the magic of what
you do to stay alert and healthy with such power. [Sadhguru]… I don’t get to do most of the things I know
I should do about myself, because of the schedule and the travel. Usually, I am…an important
part of health is – how you eat. And most of the time, I’m eating in somebody’s
home. So I have to eat to their satisfaction, not
to my health. You know, this is India. Hospitality means you must eat two people’s
food, not one! So considering all that, I have…… the
choice is gets quite restricted. So what do I do? What… I say right now, may not be
a practical suggestion, because you can’t take it as a tip and do this. I do every day one twenty seconds of sadhana. That is I just let my energies run through
a overhaul in the morning and that’s all I do. I have no regular exercise regimen;
I don’t walk every day, I… – Nothing! But since I am twenty-five years of age
to this day, my weight has not varied more than two kilograms. I have been seventy-four, seventy-five since
I was twenty-five. It’s just that little from my shoulder, it
slipped little down. It was all on my shoulder, now kind of going
towards the earth. Except for that, which I am wanting to correct. So this is not a practical suggestion, but
there are ways to do your health, in ways other than physical ways. Maybe you have not heard of, maybe
you have, a couple of times in the last ten-twelve years, doctors
have written me off as, for sure, you won’t make it’ kind of thing
because all my systems were failing because of certain things that happened. But I’ve come out of that, just in a matter
of days or weeks, because, you need to understand this – this whole body
was manufactured from inside, not from outside. You provided the raw material from outside,
but the piece of bread that you eat becomes human body from inside. So there is an intelligence here, there is
a competence here, which creates this body. If you have access to that, if there is a
repair job to be done, would you go to the manufacturer
or the local tinker? If you have lost access to the manufacturer,
you go to the local tinker; otherwise you go to the manufacturer. Most of you take your cars
to the company service station, isn’t it? Not to the local tinker
unless you’re in some place where you have no access. This is possible for every human being. It is just that,
they think it’s not important to… pay attention to the source of their creation. They think something else is more important,
which amazes me. How is this possible? But somehow,… a large segment of the population
thinks, something else is more important than that which is the very source of your creation. Your thoughts and emotions are more important
than something of this intelligence, that is, it can transform a piece of bread,
into such a sophisticated mechanism called a ‘human being.’ When such a level of intelligence is there
within us, I cannot understand how anybody can ignore
it. It’s always,
though I’ve lived this long in this world and I’ve worked with people continuously,
it still amazes me. How is it? How is it that they can ignore this? [Mr. Chaudhry] Sadhguru, so long as we’re
alive, we breathe and we have this beautiful instrument
of the human body, in Isha Yoga Center, you place a lot of emphasis on two things –
the posture and breathing. How these two things impact our health? See the way we sit, for example, people who
a’re on the path of Hata yoga spend a lifetime learning how to sit. A logically thinking person cannot understand,
why should somebody spend a lifetime learning how to sit? Health, you’re talking about health, I’m sorry. There are other dimensions to it, but coming
to health – if you have to be healthy, you have to be at ease. This is like, you’re driving your car, you
may be – What do you drive, Sanjeev? ‘M,’… ‘M’ is not a Maruti, okay? So, you’re driving a good car. It’s a wonderful machine, but drive it
without the engine oil. In ten minutes, it’ll be junk. Yes or no? Because there is no ease, lubrication is lost. So when you say you’re stressful, you’re anxious,
you’re disturbed by this and that, what you’re saying is, your lubrication
is lost. It is not because of the speed at which you’re
traveling, you’re struggling. It is because there is no ease, there is no
lubricant inside. And everything is friction. When there is friction, there will be stress. Drive your car for ten minutes without engine
oil and see what happens. However great your car is, it’ll be gone. So bringing this to ease – there are too many
things to it, I can’t go about. One simple thing is – today fortunately,
they put these kind of chairs for you. Otherwise, these days slowly,
you know we’re getting European furniture-makers in India, big-time now. So, you go to United States and sit down in
a sofa, you have no choice, you anyway become like this. You have no choice about how you sit. Like this. Now you need to understand this – if
there’s something called as muscular comfort, skeletal comfort, organ comfort. Muscular and skeletal comfort is largely…
just comfort, comfort it is. It is needed at some times. But your organs should be comfortable
for you to be healthy. If you take all the vital organs in your body
I am putting it in a very simplistic way – considering the time –
all these vital organs in your body, they are not fixed with clamps and nuts and bolts;
they are hanging in nets like this. Only if you sit like this
with your spine erect, your organs are at maximum comfort. You sit like this
they collapse one on top of each other. Now how do they function well? They will not function well. So in a day, if you’re sitting like this for
eight, ten hours, you’re asking for it. You’re just asking for it. It’s like you want to drive your car on two
wheels, one day if you flip around to show off, it’s
okay. Every day if you drive like this,
it’s not going to last. That… that’s happening to your body all
the time. So maintaining a certain level of organ comfort
is very important if all these things have to function well. See, you may not be medically diagnosed as
‘diseased’ or you have an ailment, but I would say… Pardon me for my percentages, I would say
over eighty-five percent of the people do not know
what’s health. They’ve not experienced it. Maybe they knew it as children
where they bounced around. If you’re healthy, you feel like bouncing
around. That means you’re grave. You know your destination. So, this sense of gravity has entered you,
not because of age, not because you’ve become profound, simply
because there is no ease, either in the mind or in the body. So… it’s trying to save itself. It is trying to live in a limited way. It is not trying to live,
it is trying to save life and curtail it and hang on for a little while longer. So keeping the body at ease is most important. Coming to mind and other things, there are
so many things. Apart from that, if you learn to sit right…;
you know, in seventies, late seventies or eighties, when you first
got your television, you were watching your television, which was
a one-channel wonder, and you’re watching your favorite program
– you know what it was and suddenly, it went bup, bup, bup. Then you go up on the terrace, there is a
piece of aluminum there, you try to do this and this doesn’t come. Then very carefully, you bring it to that
level suddenly the world pours into your house. Once again the world is back in your sitting
room, simply because, you got the aluminum piece
to the right position. You need to understand, you are who you are,
only because of what you have perceived, isn’t it? Perception means you must be like an antenna. The whole system of yoga is just this. You learn to hold your body right. Now, if I go anywhere even in India, you know,
because they think if you wear Indian clothes, you’re archaic. You have to be in Western clothes to be modern
And they’ll give me a chair with armrests like this
because they have lost their flexibility, they can’t cross their legs,
they all sit like this and every two minutes, they keep shifting and shifting. If I sit like this, I’ll sit the whole day
like this, because the body is at ease. Now if I have to think, if I have to perceive,
the body has to be in a certain way. They don’t perceive anything; they got everything
stored in their iPad. It’s a very different world. Health is not just physical. There a’re a whole lot of
dimensions to it, isn’t it? Unless this… this human being feels complete
in every way, you cannot say he is healthy, isn’t it? So we have a phenomenal sense of what human
mechanism is. I want you to know this. Being Indians, being in Delhi,
which is the capital of India, I want you to know this –
this is not my nasture… nationalistic fervor, this is a reality –
nowhere else on the planet, no culture, at any time in the history of humanity,
has looked at human mechanism with as much profoundness as
we have looked at it here. If you destroy this knowledge,
if it is not a living knowledge, it is only with a few people, it is no good. We have to live it. This is the greatest advantage we had and
it is showing in many ways. Though our people… sixty percent of the
population is malnourished in the country right now, their physical bodies,
their skeletal system has not grown to full size – still in spite of this, I speak
across the planet to all kinds of people, highest level of academics, scientists, tribal
women, rural people, all kinds – I always find, traveling around the world,
I always find the basic general intellect in India is way
higher than most places on the planet. But it has no expression. In other places, they have found systems
to allow people to find expression to their intelligence. Here, we’re blocking it in a million different
ways, in spite of that, you can’t kill it. But if you keep them malnourished for another
generation or two, this intellect which came because of thousands
of years of breeding carefully, doing the right things with life – we call
this ‘Samskriti’ that means doing the right things with life. Life does not mean party. Life means this that you’re doing the right
things with this, so that this gradually evolves to a higher
and higher space. Because of this, so many things happened in
this country. So many wonderful things were invented, so
much knowledge and knowing happened. But now, that knowledge and that possibility,
we are not able to pass it on large-scale to our children,
which is the greatest tragedy the country is going through right now.

  1. I cant speak with the same ease, as Sadhguru without anything and for every question, from any paper which i have = ) How beautiful his speech, total lubrication and best engine oil

  2. I am amazed at some people's ability to make disparaging comments when they are being served free contents that would otherwise have cost them a fortune. What is it all about?

  3. If I have mobility problems and artificial hip joints and shoulders and arthritis in the lower back can I still do yoga safely?

  4. Though out of context here , Sadguru please bless me with seeing you being sworn in as President of Bharat nation .

  7. Once you know the FUNDAMENTALS of your CONVICTION/belief speaking n answering questions not only becomes easy but also CREATIVE in delivery. I used to do this in 1970s n '80s on the same spiritualism.

  8. Very right knowledge about our human system guru explained in a simple way to understand everybody.we have gifted living in this era live guided soul.

  9. This video is good enough if we can understand, if we can meditate in right manner, one can experience what sadguru is saying about, thank you sadguru for your enlightening words we are lucky to have you

  10. I am happy sadhguru is warning Indians again and again about the worsening effects of losing Indian traditions and knowledge in the name of modernity. Every video I watch there is a slap to the people reminding not to lose Indian knowledge from the Sanatana vidyas. Other gurus( peace guru: long kriya guru) is heard doing these things like sadguru

  11. How could you judge other that they ignore this. You just assuming Mr 'guru'. Now you moving from sitting to health, and engine oil. But how do you sit in your helicopter and BMW. Your motorbike, and 4xD? What a wasting of time listening to such talks.

  12. Do ketogenic~ autophagy sweet spot upregulates stem cells. 2016 noble winners . Removak of senesant cells .recycle and repair. Its anti inflammatory.

  13. Wow.. what an amazing speech. So detailed. Has anyone know which sadhana he does every morning which he spoke about?

  14. As human from Indian sub continent, I usually think how our ancestors survived, if they were not scientific minded? I guess an answer that English people took all the books on science nd intelligence. Ok. Then they systematically changed our living habits nd patrens. Today after listening Guru ji's lecture I am enlightened. We as subcontinent peoples…we must rediscover nd practice yoga for better life. This should be part of education from school to colleges…as is in China. Love u Guru ji nd all his followers. From Pakistan.

  15. Yes. Its much easier when u have more than enuv money in ur bank account. [email protected] More than 60 percent of Indians live in SLUMS. These were Sadhgurus words, Not mine.
    Yet , he is said to have a personal FORTUNE of US $30 MILLION. that shows why he could SIT THE WHOLE DAY N JUST RELAX. [email protected]!

  16. On dmt the whole body is is an antennae thing becomes direct experience. The straighter you sit the better the picture comes in.

  17. Samskriti: doing the right things in life.i got sweeped away with this intellect.he is right ,indians have highest intellect but there is very less of a system to express it, we need to build it.

  18. the usual story….the wealth and education hoarded by a small selfish minority…who preserve themselves by the employment of suppression ..the patterns are lamentably repeated all over the world throughout history…

  19. Real wisdom comes from experienced knowledge. Sadhguru has it <3 He's my present "hero" on Earth..There is unfortunately not many who act according to their preaching.. " Don't do as I do, just do as I say" said the Pastor/priest/minister kinda thing 😀 😛 Namaste bro's & sis's <3

  20. i am a women 60 years og age, have 3 children and 2 grandchildren, my weight is 59 kilo since i was 18 years old.

  21. India is not actually poor at all…the kind of riches i or many like me have lived there and seen are free flowing unlike any country I have been too..

    Plus maybe the poverty is due to the high population and it's in a way acts like a filter for people who really and truly want to seek spiritualism beyond what's visible in popular news…
    And we all know how western news portrays more of the sad parts in any country be in China Indonesia or India or vietnam
    . As That's their eye…"The eye"
    It is said people and countries as a whole see outside what they are inside if they have gutter inside they see only that outside..
    Where as India is rich In so many things and if a seeker wants to see or seek they will look beyond what is obvious and look into the riches

  22. Pranam Guruji. You have opened my eyes to many things and I hope to take your advice improve myself thank you!

  23. if we could just sit all day instead of working for a living, we would all CERTAINLY be much healthier and live longer and need less sleep ,unfortunately there has to be a crowd of gullible idiots paying the bills of those convincing them to do it for them , Lord ,……..servant,…. see how it works ? the lord lives in comfort for many years at the expense of his subordinates

  24. The Indian culture was proceeded by many far higher cultures. The present-day Indian phenotype is not even the same as it was in ancient times. Much has changed over the entire globe. There is nothing lofty about the word "science." It is an English word, basically meaning, "examining perceived reality from the left hemisphere of the brain." Hence, the reason why science has to re-orient, change, clarify, or completely dismiss, today, that which it defined as "hard-science," yesterday. Hyperboria was the very first culture of so-called humanity on this planet. Many were translucent, but upon shifting into greater density, were said to be deep green, like plants, or deep brown. Many were giants! They existed thousands of years ago. The Kemetic (Egyptian), Olmec, and Mayans are among the highest of civilizations. Being a remnant of those surviving Kemites, the Dogon of West Africa retain much of the Kemetic knowledge. Aryans are the most recent addition to the "so-called" human family, understood to be not more than 6,000 years old.

  25. June 2019. Namaste Sadhguru. "manufacturer or the local tinker" The manufacturer! "the source of creation" … PEACE&LOVE

  26. ದಯವಿಟ್ಟು ಸದ್ಗುರುಗಳ ಎಲ್ಲ ವಿಡಿಯೋಗಳನ್ನು ಕನ್ನಡಕ್ಕೆ ಅನುವಾದಿಸಿ

  27. I so enjoy this person, good sense, obvious practice of what he speaks of, the wish to give only what truly will Love and be useful, and humour, like all the greatest people…At 5:05, where he speaks of sometimes not believing how can people not get it? Ah, that's one I know of also. As may you who are reading, eh? But many of the religious variations now teach that agreeing to not see, and to self-abuse, abuse others (another form of self abuse, obviously) is "Love", to negate one's responsability , which is also total freedom, is being "holy" , that the Ego , our creation in response to that freedom, and how we choose to manifest ourselves Loving, these religions instill as something horrible and ot be eschewed..instead of owned, and chosen wisely and responsably towards the Isness that created us to Love with..etc. Because of course, if you own yourSelf and the responsability of our connection, then religions have no longer any people to give them money and attention…people would be too busy loving each other and themselves and creating beauty.

  28. I believe that science and religion should come to a agreement of peace and when that happen we will go beyond advanced technology we will be gods

  29. If your skeleton is not grown to full size, is there any possibility to work on that and make it become fully grown both in adult and in children ?

  30. Oh you lucky Indians, but what about me? An European bastard with my wikings ancestors? right from tree still hunting wild boars in the forest! No chance to escape the grave for me, still waiting for a better reincarnation in south India.

  31. Namaskaran Sadhguru…your words are always music to my hears and your wisdom is one of the a few fountains left that I'd like to drink from, infinite thank you 🙂
