Pilgrimage to Kailash & Manasarovar

In this week’s Spot, Sadhguru continues to describe the rare opportunity of Mount Kailash. “The whole reason why you make a pilgrimage like this is to understand and experience that there is something beyond what you logically know in this world as ‘real’. Kailash is a phenomenon like no other; its mysticism, its magic, its beauty, above all, in its magnitude, there is no comparison to this sacred being. I call Kailash a ‘being’ as it is more present than you and me.”

First Stop: Nepal

In this week’s Spot, the pilgrimage to Kailash begins, and the first stop is Nepal. “The very psychology of civilization here is still completely geared towards ultimate liberation. And the very geography has been converted into a living spiritual body. Nearly six hundred ardent seekers have come from all over the world to be on this pilgrimage to Kailash. For the last 12,000 years, maybe more, pilgrims have been making this journey without a single year’s break.”In this week’s Spot, the pilgrimage to Kailash begins, and the first stop is Nepal. “The very psychology of civilization here is still completely geared towards ultimate liberation.

In Transit: TN, NYC, KATH

In this week’s Spot, Sadhguru has a tight scheduled transition from Tennessee to New York, to Delhi, on to Kathmandu. The next adventure is the Kailash Yantra. “Waiting in anticipation for one more breathtaking Kailash-Manasarovar yatra. We are off to the land of mysticism, miracles, mountains and our meditators. Believe me, this is an exciting combo.”

Anaadhi: A Tearful Closing

In this week’s Spot, Sadhguru describes the ‘ending’ of Anaadhi. “Although the 90 days at iii have passed for these 200 seekers who took up the Anaadhi challenge, who endured its physical, mental and other challenges, Anaadhi is not that which ends in 90 days. That which you refer to as Anaadhi has always been on.”

Dizzy Ecstasy: Guru Poornima at iii

The significance of Guru Poornima is the topic in this week’s Spot. “Guru Poornima is an important day for people on the spiritual path; it is on this day that a method evolved where human beings could aspire to become something other than what nature has determined. On this day Shiva, the Adi Yogi or the “first” yogi, also became the Adi Guru, and decided to impart his methods to the Saptarishis – the seven celestial sages.”

Anaadhi: Devotion Is That Which is Devoid of You (w/Poems)

In this week’s Spot, Sadhguru defines devotion and shares a beautiful story exemplifying it. “Devotion has found so many forms of expression – from subtle and gentle, to fierce and extreme. Devotion essentially means you are making an effort not to have a will of your own, so that you arrive at the doorstep of the Creator absolutely willingly. Devotion is that which is devoid of you.”

If You Sit in a Pitch-Dark Space

In this week’s Spot, Sadhguru writes about the beauty of darkness. “So darkness is only a problem for those who have unstable minds. If you have a stable mind, darkness is a very beautiful thing. It is the only thing which is eternal. The dark nothingness that is all-pervading is the very lap of creation. May you have the needed stability of mind to know the utter stillness and the eternal nature of darkness.”
