Eclipse and Food – Life Sense, not Internet Science | Sadhguru


Meditator: Sadhguru, you may not be aware of this
but in the last few days after the eclipse, there have been lot of people on social media, they’re referring to your observation that food becomes unfit for consumption during eclipse and they are saying they had food and they did not die. (Sadhguru Laughs) Sadhguru: Are they disappointed (Laughter)? Meditator: So, they are even calling you superstitious
and non-scientific (Sadhguru Laughs). So just wanted to hear your thoughts on that. Sadhguru: Let’s understand, what is superstition? Superstition is, without any perception or knowledge about a certain subject you make conclusions, that’s superstition. Now ahh… the nature of life is like this… depends how sensitive you are, accordingly that profound is
your perception and experience of life. This will not come through intellectual accumulation, those who read a high school text book, if they think they are scientists (Few laugh), what can I say? Because a genuine scientist, a scientist who was probed into any aspect of life, into any aspect of life with certain profoundness
will not speak like this (Laughs). Now as a yogi, I as far as possible, I will never consume anything which is cooked,
which is more than an hour-and-a-half old. Why we are serving the food,
the way we are serving in the ashram is hoping that all of you will graduate
from being yoga practioners to yogis. Not just bending and twisting, you are beginning to feel the union in the existence. If this has to happen, body has to be sensitive and it has to have a minimum level of inertia. Now if you eat food which in some way has deteriorated, it may not be rotten nor is it going to kill you,
you can eat it. (Laughs) It is just that it will lower your perception. In my experience of life, for me lower perception is death, at least death of the yogi- the man may live (Laughs). The yogi is dead because he has lost his perception, he has lost his sensitivity. So the death of sensitivity if it doesn’t matter to you there is really no problem to you, you can eat what
you want, you can eat garbage and still survive. Well, people are eating food that was cookeda week ago, ten days ago, three months ago, they’re keeping in their refrigerator and eating. After eating it they don’t know what’s the difference, to such people what can you say (Laughs) but for sure they cannot have the
sensitivity that I am talking about and I am sure they are sleeping eight to ten hours a day, that is death for me (Laughs). Ten hours of sleep, nearly forty percent death, isn’t it? In twenty-four hours. So if you wish to live like that you can eat
whatever you want, what is the problem? You can eat anything you want. Well I am not a scientist either and I don’t wish to be one. I don’t have either books to read nor am I researching anything, nor am I looking through a microscope, nor do I have a lab in my backyard (Few laugh). I just pay attention to this human mechanism which is me. I kept it well takes a lot of work, takes a lot of work
to keep this well, doesn’t just come. So, I keep it in a certain way and that anything that happens in nature,
I observe what’s happening with me and I am speaking that I am also
observing the life around me for confirmation. Every insect, worm, bird, animal, tree
is saying the same thing. Well if you are going to discover this
after many years and a few billion dollars of research it’s up to you. Well I want to tell you till recently these so called scientists,
the real science is different. A scientist who has looked at something with
profoundness will not speak this way, these are probably internet scientists (Laughter), you know. They know every science not just one everything
they know because they are on the internet. So such people were saying,
I am saying something so simple, they were advocating that alcohol, tobacco, red meat
are the best things for your life, till recently. Now suddenly they have all become activist against that, because somewhere somebody said
after a billion dollar research. We’ve been saying it forever. What is a recent discovery for you
has been an eternal wisdom for us. I’ll tell you, I was in conversation with a doctor
in United States of Indian origin. He was telling me that he is the first one in western medicine to identify that the heart not only pumps blood
but it also sucks the blood back, the ventricles pump it out, the atrium sucks it back. This, he is the first one who wrote the papers,
he sent me his videos, his TED talk, his scientific papers, I looked through it and I couldn’t believe it that till recently till a few years ago nobody in the medical science knew
that heart sucks back the venous blood. Well in the yogic system the focus is on
the atrium which sucks back the blood, the Ayurveda speaks about it,
Charka Samhita speaks about it. In yoga the focus is always not on pumping
the blood out, but sucking it blood back because we are interested that our blood is as pure as possible. Because certain level of impurity in the blood
means we lose perception. We are not interested in terms of what is the nutrition, what is the oxygen content,
how long will I live, this is not the point. How do I live, what is
the quality of my life is my concern. How profound is my perception is always my concern and this always been the concern of this culture and this science that we are referring to as yoga. So, if you think only if it’s written in a book it is true, then you are very superstitious and religious,
you are… nothing scientific about you. You think night means just absence of light? Or there is a phenomenal change in the
very way the life happens from day to night? You ask every insect, bird, animal, tree, even the rock- it knows night is different. If you sit here with little openness you will know it’s not about light. If you close your eyes, even in the day time there is no light, in the night also there is no light but is there no difference,
every meditator knows what’s the difference, isn’t it? So somebody will say this is all rubbish (Laughs), there is just absence of sunlight that’s it. That’s what they are saying about the eclipse. Doesn’t matter, I am telling you during the eclipse time don’t cook food and eat …
keep it and then eat, don’t do that. Eat before or after because this is life sense,
this is not internet science. The greatest ignorance is knowing that
you are not ignorant. That’s the whole problem. All the internet scientists I please request you,
eat some fresh food (Laughter & Applause). Keep yourself healthy, well perceptive not to me, to life. Eat during the eclipse if you wish, hmm? You won’t die, inertia will build up. If you don’t mind the inertia… anyway you are drinking alcohol,
smoking cigarettes, doing things may be it won’t make any difference for you, possibly it doesn’t. If you take a high-end car today and go and pump gasoline in any of the
Indian gas stations which is eighty-seven octane. Your car will stop within a few kilometers, you need to buy special gas and put it into it, why? Because it’s high performance, so if you want to be high performance what kind of fuel goes into you, you look at it carefully. You are a junk machine (Laugher) eat whatever, drink whatever
what does it matter anyway? Live whichever way you want, there is really no problem, okay? So, if you are disappointed that you did not die
by eating during the eclipse (Laughs). I am sorry you are superstitious, hmm…and (Laughs) the nature of life here is such that the earth, the sun
and the moon have significant impact on this life. If you are conscious of its ways you can ride this and make your life effortless and easy, if you are not conscious – these same cycles could crush you and everything you will struggle with and you will suffer enormous prejudice within you. Because prejudice and resentment will make you suffer
more than physical disease or pain or injury. Please don’t stay there, try some
fresh fruits and vegetables it could help. Whatever next eclipse comes
one eclipse you eat old food another eclipse you eat fresh food, experiment and see.

  1. "Those who have studied a high school science text book are considering themselves as a scientist" tight slap to babu gogineni

  2. Sadguru a humble request..
    Lately I have noticed that world leaders innovative engineers like Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla motors and Spacex need ur guidance in maintaining their internal balance n efficiency so that they r more productive to mankind.. I feel there is a need to address all the leaders of the world who shape our future.. especially people like Elon Musk.. which is only possible by u sadguru..

  3. why you guys are not upload full episodes.. i request you guys kindly upload full episodes as sadguru is the only one remain on this planet earth who could enlightens us with the truth so please don't create a barrier between us ans sadguru.. we want to enlighten and know the truth and we will get this when we listen to him so o request you guys to upload full episodes…

  4. I want to be conscious and ride the way of the Moon but I still don't get it really. not yet. Why is there an upsurge during the mahashivratri and why is that the most important new moon or darkness of the year. This year February 13th. So do they stay up all night just on the 13th?

  5. Whatever the guru said, till the end of video might or might not alter the views on eclipse and it's impact on living things. But I feel the last word is something which all of us need to follow to know the essence of celestial bodies (might be positive or negative). Just "Experience" it. Being a temporary visitor on this planet, all of us need to explore all dimensions of life. Live happily.

    Forgive and correct me, if there any mistakes.

  6. The Bible, Genesis 2:7, says: " God blew His Breath into the nostrals of men, and men began to live." This breath of God is God Itself, so is this Breath prana? Prana is everywhere like God, Brahman is everywhere. So prana is in and outside the pot and if the pot vanish, prana remains. Is this the neckless I am looking for while wearing it? Is this why ajapa japa on the incoming en outgoing breath is so important for maintaining awareness of the in- and outgoing prana through breathing? Brahman is the Absolute, the One without a second; like prana is everywhere, without quality's? And that Shakti (the whole existance) rises from Brahman, prana? And that AUM is the existance of mankind en that Turya, the Fourth is like the prana in and outside the pot? And that Turya is the prana we're breathing throught the 3 states of existance A-U-M? And when the existance of men disappear, the Fourth, Brahman, prana remain to exist? Please help me, I am desperate to find answers to this existential questions. I am yearning for realizing my true nature. Thank you very very much, I am greatfull to you. Ray

  8. Being a food technologist having bachelor's of Engg. in food technology, i have nothing to say 😯😯😯😯😯😯

  9. Подскажите напровление Дороги к МАСТЕРУ в матерьяльном теле.Нахожусь на територии Казахстана.Иду на легке на своих 2х (без денег)С намереньем меняться.*БЛАГОДАРЮ*.

  10. I agree with not eating cooked food to some extent what about PPL adding tulsi leaf to water food that's cooked before eclipse and later consuming it??

  11. why do elders ask us to take bath after grahan. once grahan gets over, elders literally treat as untouchability like how one doesn't touch anything after attending a death. just wanted to understand​ the reason behind it.

  12. He is evading the question of how food can get spoilt during eclipses. Making fun of science lessons in books is not enough, explain what is logical and rational. An eclipse is only the blocking of one celestial body by another, that too for a short duration. Does food get spoilt on a cloudy day?

  13. Does this apply for solar eclipses too? Smn plz reply ASAP! There will be a solar eclipse tomorrow, July 2nd, 2019.
