Full Transcript:

Sadhguru: yoga is essentially understanding aligning your system with the cosmic geometry. See in the yogic system, we see the body as one hundred and fourteen chakras, seventy two thousand nadis meeting in hundred and fourteen junctions which are called as chakras. Out of these two are outside your body, one hundred and twelve inside the body. Of these one hundred and twelve, there are four about which you don’t have to do anything. They are like that. If other things work, they will flower by themselves. So there are only one hundred and eight with which you can work. So, hundred and eight has become significant. If you wear any beads, people wear hundred and eight beads. If they say a mantra, hundred and eight because these are the hundred and eight chakras that you need to work with. This hundred and eight number is significant and you will see it in the East, everything is hundred and eight because the diameter of the sun and the distance between the earth and the sun is hundred and eight times. The diameter of the moon and the distance between the moon and the earth is hundred and eight times. The diameter of the earth and the diameter of the Sun is hundred and eight times. And in this body, there are one hundred and eight chakras that we can work upon. So the cosmic geometry I can go into a lot of arithmetic which will match with your human system and these things we have been conscious of and that is how we came up with eighty four basic asanas. Out of these eighty four, if you do twenty one of them properly and you just master one, your system will be aligned with the cosmic system. Once it’s aligned, everything that you need to know about the cosmos is right here.

    Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless its a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from.

    Good post. I learn something tougher on different blogs everyday. It’ll at all times be stimulating to learn content from other writers and observe somewhat one thing from their store. I’d choose to use some with the content on my blog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll offer you a link in your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.
