Sadhguru: Right now I hear there’s only one phone in United States, is the iPhone. Well, it’s a good phone but what we are forgetting is the ‘I’. The iPhone is all right, but the ‘I’ is the most important thing, iPhone is just a little gadget produced by this, larger gadget – this is the gadget, isn’t it? All the other gadgets have been produced by this gadget. (Pointing to himself)
If you pay little attention to this one, if the necessary understanding and awareness and ability to transform this gadget happens within you, your ability to live will be greatly, greatly enhanced. Then outside technologies are not a barrier, outside technologies are a boon that’s been offered to us. But the boons that have been offered to us are turning into curses in people’s lives simply because they have not taken care of this one; they’re only trying to take care of the external situation.
So we have done lot of engineering in the world outside and because of this we have a huge level of comfort and convenience in the world today. The kind of comfort and convenience that no other generation of people could have ever imagined, that level of comfort and convenience we have. Though we have this, though we are the most comfortable generation ever on the planet, we cannot claim that we are the most peaceful generation, we cannot claim we are the most joyful or loving generation on the planet for sure. So in many ways, this generation is becoming the most neurotic generation or most complaining generation because we have taken care of the outside but we have not taken care of the inside. The world is engineered the way we want it, but are we engineered the way we want ourselves to be? So, there is a certain way to engineer our system, to make this body, to make this mind, to very chemistry within us, the way we want it. If our wish is to be blissful… to make the world blissful (Laughs), it would take too many things but to make this one person blissful, a willing person, somebody who wants to be blissful, it shouldn’t be difficult at all. But this is not been done because people have never paid attention to the mechanics of how a human being functions and to engineer that the way we want it. So these are technologies for inner well-being Everybody wants health, peace, blissfulness, but these are simple things. Why these things are not happening is, we have never paid attention to the inner mechanism of what a human being is. To pay attention to that and to create it the way we want it, this is ‘Inner Engineering’.
We will teach a certain process which is known as the ‘Shambhavi Mahamudra’. This is a way of activating your energies in such a way that the very fundamental chemistry in your body will alter itself within a matter of two to three weeks. One can even measure this in the laboratories – such experiments have been done how the blood chemistry changes within three weeks of practice has been recorded and you can make your chemistry a chemistry of blissfulness. Once your system come to… comes to absolute ease, there will be no dis-ease. What is being taught is a scientific process, step-by-step it’ll be taught. We need twenty-eight hours to impart this, twenty-eight to thirty hours of focused time. So, it takes that much time to practically and experientially impart this. One aspect of the program is to bring a deeper understanding to their own system, to their physical system, to their energy system, to their chemistry, to their emotional aspects of them and also the psychological structures. Once they understand few basics, then we teach methods with which they can make these dimensions within themselves in a conscious manner.
It does not demand any lifestyle changes; it just takes only twenty-one minutes of your day. If you’re willing to dedicate twenty-one minutes of your day to this simple process, it has been life-transforming for millions of people this is not a religion, this is not some kind of a teaching, this is not a philosophy; this is a technology. One has to just learn how to use it, like how you learn to use your iPhone, similarly you learn to use this ‘I’ to its optimum level, to its fullest capacity Isha Foundation is a hundred percent volunteer organization – the volunteers are taking it to the people because it’s made such a big difference in their life and they want to share it. Their dedication, their time, their life is being given to make this happen to many other people and this is my wish and my blessing that every human being, we do not know what you will achieve in the outside world or not, but this much every human being deserves, that his experience of life on this planet is a pleasant experience. This much everybody is able to do if only if they turn inward. these simple tools will help people to bring themselves to a new level of balance and pleasantness within themselves. This is something every human being deserves.
