Guru Purnima – The Day of Liberation _ Sadhguru – Transcript
Sadhguru: Having just shifted into dakshinayana or the southern run of the sun of the relationship between the planet and the sun has moved into the southern mode. In the yogic culture this is held as the sadhana pada – that means this is the best time to work upon yourself. And the end of the month is Guru Poornima. Today just about everybody has a day for themselves (Laughs). There are pet food days there are bubble bath days (Laughter) there’s a Diabetes Day (Laughter) of course many other days of some significance. Of course now there’s a Yoga Day but before all this happened there was a day for the guru (Laughs) which is the Guru Poornima (Laughs). So that’s at the end of this month. It’s a a very powerful pournami on the full moon night because the shifting of dakshinayana and the first second the first three pournamis till the equinox are of certain significance for those who are doing internal things within themselves. So this Guru Poornima is a reminder that for the first time a being of immense possibilities and capabilities took this step of wanting to share – not by his own will he was kind of conned into it tch. I don’t want to go into the entire story now but he was kind of done (Laughs). That’s why I said it’s very courageous but a little tch (Laughs). So here we are. This part of the world has always been referred to as karma bhoomi – that means a place to do things for yourself where you can take your destiny into your hands. It’s not that in other parts of the world you cannot do it – you can. It’s just that here because of certain natural forces there is an added support an advantage which people made use of for millennia and built structures and instruments through which it could be enhanced. And in the same in the same aspiration to create a fantastic tool for people’s evolution or hastening one’s evolutionary process someone dreamt of Dhyanalinga. But he was very smart he didn’t attempt doing it (Laughter). I think he must have been looking for a fool who was willing to attempt such a thing (Laughs) and he found one things happened (Laughs). Liberation is scary because you’re trying to remove the walls of prison that you’ve been so used to. When I say ‘so used to’ it is not a question of one lifetime. There’s a memory of entire evolutionary process in this (Referring to oneself). Within your brain there is something called as a reptilian brain. It is that dimension of your brain which is always thinking ‘How to fix a boundary? What about my security?’ The other part of the brain which makes you a human being which is known as cerebral cortex is always looking ‘How to expand how to enhance how to empower myself?’ But the reptilian brain is always thinking of how to build a wall around myself for my own safety and security. So in search of security you’re downgrading the evolutionary process for yourself. You need to understand that the walls of self-preservation are also the walls of self-imprisonment. The coming of the Guru Pournami means for the first time for the first time someone brought this dimension into human life – that if you are willing you can break all the boundaries that even nature has fixed. Not just your psychological boundaries not your emotional boundaries even existential boundaries that nature has fixed – you can transcend all that. So the Guru Pournima or the day of the guru can also to be remembered as the day of liberation because the possibility of liberation for the first time was opened up for human race.
