On this Spot, Sadhguru shares a video clip from his recent conversation with medical scientists on “Memory, Consciousness, and Coma.” Also, scroll through the photos from the event at Harvard University’s Sanders Theatre on 14 May 2018. In the video, Emery N. Brown, MD, PhD, Professor of Anesthesia and Computational Neuroscience; Nicholas D. Schiff, MD, PhD, Professor of Neurology and Neurosciences, and Sadhguru explore what actually happens under anesthesia to brain, mind, and consciousness. Sadhguru throws light on jagrati/wakefulness and offers a deeper and wider definition of consciousness or turiya, from his own experiential yogic perspective.
In this Spot video, Sadhguru shares his deep concern about alarming levels of corruption undermining the democratic process in India and many other parts of the world. He says, “If we allow democratic process to become criminalized absolutely, we are giving away the greatest privilege that the common people ever had.” Sadhguru urges everyone to participate in defending democracy by rejecting and reporting any form of corruption: “It doesn’t matter which party, which leader – if they are indulging in criminalizing democratic process, we must act.” Check out the video for his full message.
In this Spot, Sadhguru shares a recording of him chanting “Buddham Sharanam Gachhami” during the Buddha Purnima darshan at the Isha Institute of Inner-sciences in Tennessee a few days ago. In his new poem “Moon,” Sadhguru offers an almost satirical view on Earth’s satellite and its impact, particularly on womankind. “After a day of deception / the Moony Madness relaunches itself / for our Birth.”
Spirituality, says Sadhguru, is not about looking for God, truth or the ultimate, but about learning to just look. He discusses enhancing one’s perception and narrates experiences from his own childhood of paying attention without motive.
The month of April marks the birthday of Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar, champion for social equality and architect of India’s constitution. In this article, Sadhguru explains that, while it may be high time to review India’s reservation policy, the effort towards combating discrimination remains highly imperative, especially in rural communities.
When we lose a loved one, Sadhguru says, it is the time to cherish the memories of how they enhanced our life, not to fall into grief and depression. He discusses dropping the illusions of the mind and emotions and “turning on the lights” before you reach the lighting of your cremation fire.
