Hyderabad Bomb Blast & Violence – Sadhguru Speaks (Part 1) – Transcript
(Questioner): Sadhguru given the recent events happening around the world (Sadhguru): What happening? (Questioner): Given the recent events happening around the world why is it that people do choose to create excessive violence thinking that it is a solution? (Sadhguru): That’s what who decides how much is enough? Who decides what’s excess? That’s the question. I am not condoning violence but if you look at it in terms of what’s been happening at least in the recorded history of human kind you will see that twenty first century with the number of people that we are in terms of population we are in least amount of violence. Even just look back in the twentieth century the two great wars unbelievable senseless violence limitlessly happening. Just in Europe alone what happened betweenfrom 1930s to 1945 I think they easily account for close to fifty million people but organized. So when it happens to us when violence happens to us even the smallest violence if somebody cut your little finger it’s excessive isn’t it? A bomb blast happened in Hyderabad only twenty people died day before yesterday lot of people heaving a sigh of relief ‘Oh! Good only twenty. In Bombay two hundred died.’ But when it happens to us even if they pull one hair out of your body it’s excessive isn’t it? So let’s not discuss what is needed and what is excessive because nobody can come to it. We try to establish systems in the world where we could use violence verbally and never pull anybody’s hair or head. This we called a democratic process where it’s a constant war of words. Don’t be offended by the words because if you take away the privilege of verbal war then it’ll translate into physical war. So the violence in the world is much less than ever before. For the tools of violence that we have which is the outcome of our scientific and technological capabilities – if these tools are used without the tongue-lashing capability in the parliaments and the debates and Union United Nations and everywhere – Oh! We would destroy the world many times over. That is not happening because modern societies have learnt to tongue-lash each other. We can say nasty things about each other. These days we do not even have the courage to say it in front of them so you blog! Sitting in your home you can say the nastiest things possible. It doesn’t matter it’s true untrue whether somebody’s going to read it or not it makes sense or it doesn’t make sense – doesn’t matter; simply say something. This ability to articulate whatever emotion you have within you we developed to a certain peak at one time. Once again this generation is seems to be losing it Now I am not saying ‘You must abuse each other.’ I am saying if this violence in you at least if you are articulate you would have spoken you would have written you would have debated about it – you wouldn’t have exploded a bomb isn’t it? You explode a bomb because you don’t know how to make your point. Because they do not know how to make a verbal statement they’re trying to make a statement – ‘Boom boom twenty people dead two hundred people injured’ a statement has been made. A violent statement has been made. ‘After all we killed only twenty we could have setup a truck bomb instead of a car bomb or a bicycle bomb and kill two thousand we killed only twenty you know’ that is their argument. so we should at least educate them to be able to make a statement; strong enough verbally so that they don’t have to make a bicycle bomb to make a statement.
