Sadhguru – Third Eye – seeing things the way they are.

Sadhguru – Third Eye –  seeing things the way they are.


What is referred to as a third eye is not
necessarily another eye like this, okay, it is not. It is just that.. you know, there are.. (there
are) okay – in the pranic system, we talked about those 72,000 nadis. These 72,000 nadis have 114 important junction
points in the body. Like, you know, in this building electrical
systems are running, there are many junction point where major meeting of connections are
happening. There are 114 junction points in the body. Generally these are referred to as Chakras. The word ‘Chakra’ literally means a ‘Wheel’
but these are not in the form of circles or wheels, they always meet in the form of a
triangle. The nadis always meet in the form of a triangle. Why I think, yeah, there’s a tri.. orange
triangle being used, it is because that is the basic way the nadis meet
they are the chakras and the whole yogic systems depends on what you do with them. So, out of these 114 – Seven are held as the
major junction points. So, these are the seven chakras that everybody
is normally talking about. They are in certain.. located in certain parts
of your body. You know something about this or? Everybody knows something about it, okay. These are ‘Muladhara, Swadhishthana, Manipuraka,
Anahatha, Vishuddhi, Ajna, Sahasrar.’ ‘Muladhara’ means ‘The foundation.’ This is a center which is physically.. or
physiologically it is located between your anal outlet and your genital organ, it’s called
the perineum medically, I think. Where is the doctor? It’s the perineum, right? So, this is Muladhara. If your energies are dominant in your muladhara,
food and sleep will be the two major qualities of your life
they will be the most important factors in your life, food and sleep. If your energies are dominant in your ‘Swadhishthana,’
which is located just above your genital organ, here you will be a pleasure seeker. Pleasure does not necessarily mean sex and
things like that – you’re somebody who wants to enjoy the world; that’s dominant in you. So, a person who is a pleasure seeker, he
lives little more intensely than a person who is living just for food and sleep. Yes? So, these are just different levels of intensities
of life. As the intensity increases your ability to
experience different dimensions of life moves from one area of life to another. If your energies move into ‘Manipuraka’ or
if they’re more dominant in Manipuraka you are a doer in the world, you want to do things. Maybe you’re a businessman, maybe you’re a
politician or something where lot of doing is needed, you know, you’re a doer. If energies move into ‘Anahatha,’ this is
the creative center, you become a creative person. Maybe you’re an artist or at least you have
tendencies. Maybe you didn’t make it in the Hollywood
but you know, you’re.. you want to create more
than simply eating and sleeping or seeking pleasure outside
you would like to do something, there is creativity in you. A person, let’s say an artist, generally their
lives may be considered little freaky for other people
but they experience life little more intensely than let’s say a businessman. Yes? It’s a different level of intensity. If energies move into ‘Vishuddhi,’ which is
the pit of the throat the word Vishuddhi, the word Anahatha, means
‘Unstruck’ this is the un-struck sound, this is the meeting
between the lower and the higher. All your survival instincts are in the lower
three chakras. Self preservation is in ‘Manipuraka, Swadhishthana
and Muladhara.’ The longing to break away from all this and
go away beyond is in ‘Vishuddhi, Ajna and Sahasrar.’ Anahatha is the meeting point, so anahatha
the symbolism is two triangles meeting. You’ve seen that, the Star of David, everything
comes from anahatha. Okay, that is the symbol for anahatha, two
upward moving and downward moving triangles meeting
because these are two different dimensions of life – one is catering to self preservation,
another is catering to the longing to go beyond. In your head and your heart you have longings
to go beyond but in your body you have longings to preserve. So, if energies move into ‘Vishuddhi’ it’s
a power center, you can become enormously powerful; very powerful individuals. When I say power, not necessarily physical
or financial or something, people can be powerful in so many ways. Just the very way they stand, some people
are powerful, some people are not, isn’t it? Yes? See (you) don’t have to do any action. You make 10 men stand here; the very way (they)
stand, some men are powerful, some aren’t. Isn’t it so? It’s not necessarily because of their activity,
just the way they are. They don’t have to pose for anything, just
simply the way they are there is power about them. If your energies move into (anahatha) ‘Ajna,’
I’m sorry, you are intellectually realized, you see things clearly, you see everything
the way it is. Once you begin to see everything the way it
is, you are at peace. So, Ajna is called as the Third Eye because
you see things the way they are. With.. these two eyes are very deceptive,
they make you see things the way it is necessary for your survival
they don’t make you.. allow you to see everything the way it is. Once your energies touch ajna, now you’re
seeing things the way they are, everything the way it is
Now that is why it is referred to as a Third Eye. Now, ‘Sahasrar’ is the seventh chakra; that
is not in the body, just outside the body. For most people it is dormant, it is not active. If some sadhana comes into your life, if you
activate it in a certain way or because of a very intense way of living it can become
active. If saha.. if energies move into your sahasrar
you will become unexplainably, unreasonably ecstatic, simply like crazy you’re ecstatic. If you come to the Bhava Spandana you will
see, simply for no reason you will be spilling in ecstasy, you just don’t know what’s happening. Just no external reason, simply you’re ecstatic
simply because your energies touch Sahasrar. From Muladhara to Ajna there are many pathways
as to how to get there, any number of methods and teachings as to how to reach there. From Ajna to Sahasrar there is no path. If you want to move from ajna to sahasrar,
because there is no path that is the reason why many people have gone
about propagating peace is the highest thing to achieve because they got stuck here. You’ve heard of ‘Ramakrishna Paramahamsa?’ (Were there) a story about him in the video
or something ? Its there right. Yeah Ok (Ramakrishna)
So, Ramakrishna was like this, he was a devotee of Kali. Kali is a form of goddess, a fierce goddess. He took Kali as his mother and worshipped
her. He’s such a devotee, he became in such a way,
his consciousness became so crystallized that if he makes lunch for Kali, that form
comes and eats with him. This is not imagination, this is actually
happening. ‘Oh, is she sitting somewhere’ – that’s not
the point. A crystallized consciousness can just create
it, just make it happen the way it is known to him. So, he actually used to feed her and she used
to eat; food used to get empty. So, he was like that but he was.. when she’s
on him; he is like ecstasy. The moment she leaves him, he is misery
all the time crying, literally crying like a baby, calling calling like ‘Mommy, mommy,
please come.’ He would be just crying, ‘Please mother, come
to me, come to me, come to me.’ When she’s on him he’s all ecstatic. When she’s not he’s lost. He went on like this. So, a certain guru whose name was called ‘Thothapuri,’
a yogi, saw his condition and he saw the man’s potential
such an intense human being, just stuck with this one form and, you know, he’s enjoying
it alright but it is not getting him anywhere. So, he tried to instruct him but this is the
whole thing about people on the path of devotion Ramakrishna said ‘I don’t want any realization,
I don’t want liberation, I just want my mother.’ This is just like you try to tell a little
child, whatever you tell him he says ‘I don’t want anything, I want mummy’ you know. He’s in that kind of thing. So, in many ways Thothapuri tried to instruct
him, he wouldn’t go. Then where they were sitting there was a piece
of broken glass he just took this piece of broken glass and
just slashed his ajna open physically, he just slashed this part of the
body open and that’s when he got realized. Suddenly, he was a different man because the
shock of cutting this just took him off from those limitation(s).

  1. Pranam swamiji.

  2. I love the music on the background. Could i have a link to full version and actually maybe the group name singing it ❤️🙏🏼

  3. Does anyone know what that song is called??

  4. what's the song at the end of the video pls ?

  5. A wonderful summary and the ending in Shri Ramkrishna, a lover of all humanity and preached harmony of all major religions. Thank you Sadguruji.

  6. I have worked with meditation a long time and I believe that there are ten chachras As there are ten planetary bodies,ten fingers and toes… this symmetry I believe is the true representation of how many chachras there truly are…

  7. That's a lot of valuable information. Thank you.

  8. The people who disliked this can you tell why??

  9. Actually there are 112 chakras in the body. Two are outside the body. My other critique is he did not mention bitter melon, which is supposed to be the king of all vegetables. You always want to eat your vegetables for health. Condensing down to a pill or one shake does not replace the eating of vegetables in bulk.

  10. I dont understand the moral of story..

  11. the third eye I may call the human sense of understanding everything as it is.. in another way it is call spirit eyes to the devotee of Divine.. Believing of something will leads human different from the rest of fellow being same to all religions. Sandhgurru I respect his knowledge and experience but the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom ..In terms of fear is doing good ,hatting and running away from evil is what to fear.. by evil means I may call bad practicing of life.. knowledge is behind of self control with determination of seeking God..

  12. you will see as much evil as good

  13. Is it possible to skip some levels and go to higher chakras or one has to go through all levels during lifetime? 🤔

  14. I love you too 💪🏽

  15. Hello, I meditate on my bed while listening to the mahamrityunjay mantra for about 30 min at night.. but somewhat after 15 min I feel my body light and some kind of flow of cool winds on my body, moreover I feel some presence even though I alone in my room.. this is my day 2 and these stuffs are happening with me.. no doubt a little feel of fear grabs me down but after completing my meditation.. I feel normal.. is the feeling of presence just a hallucinations or does it signify some other thing.. however i am awared of the fact that the tratak activates are pineal gland and helps us to see to the other dimensions but it takes some time.. and I am really new to this.. so someone kindly answer my doubt.. thnxs

  16. Ur channel is simply superb. Very very useful for true seekers

  17. I like to watch his videos

  18. Sadguru pls ..once I want to meet u

  19. I have a pain between my eyebrows.. does that mean my third eye is opening?? I do not want it to open fr nw

  20. There is no method in this video..Its probably what you have heard in many videos nothing new in here

  21. Could this be why I see indigo triangles in my meditations?

  22. Honarable Guruji I have a doubt the opening of third eye still possible ? I mean in this modern century

  23. Can anyone articulate …suppose i raised energy to ajna and i see a rose flower…how does it look like…what does the way it is means🤔

  24. Is there a link to the song at the end of the video please?!

  25. its simply question…… LIFE….. i knw…..its a brand factory of love and everything…..but…….But…

  26. you have misspelled 'Swadhisthana' in 5:17

  27. Sadguru is telling incorrect story of Ramakrishna Paramahansa.

  28. Can you please tell me the name of the opening song?

  29. Priceless teachings

  30. I doubt if he is talking from experience or parroting the concepts. When one person asked him what he was in previous life, he rubbished that as non sense, not giving any clear-cut answer.

  31. Great thanks ! Sadhguru ! Wonderful info of chakras 🙏🙏🙏😇

  32. Otima explicação.

  33. Thats a valuable info. Is there any particular method to poen these chakras. Just wanted to know that to gain these should we leave all family behind and meditate continuously or can a time in day everyday help in opening or gaining the chakras?! I had this question from long back.

  34. I have overtime accidentally activated some chokras. My ongoing search for truth and going beyond has taught me well. All the information I have assimilated over the years has worked in unison to connect me with Sadhguru. In this video he gives a brief description of each chokra. The 3rd eye really was spot-on with me and confirmed that I have been unknowingly using my 3rd eye for quite sometime but have been misinterpreting it. Moreso in a not so serving way for me and others around me. I am now committed to my daily Sadhana. Sometimes I get kinda worried how deep I will go and tend to hold back. It's all do overwhelming and surreal. Is this really happening I ask myself or have I just psyched myself out. Time will tell. Praise to you Guru Sadhguru

  35. Informative video about chakras

  36. I want to know what that music us at the end please?

  37. Please do not put add in the middle of Sadguru’s talking. You know he says full attention during his session, so please follow that. I’m not against adds, if you want to may add at the end of video or first at the beginning. Anyways Sadguru has given free material for you to monitors so please be considerate. Thank you.

  38. It seems we are all chasing the light, looking everywhere for it. Everywhere except in ourselves.

  39. Shri Ram – that’s how you get to sahastrara

  40. Plz tell me the name of chant wich is in the end of this vedio. Plz im muslim i need to hear such amazing lyrics

  41. There are two ways of living life to open your third eye .

    You live your life like everything is divine.
    You live your life like everything is nonsense.

  42. Excuse me. I have been meditating for a few days and did not know this was possible..but today I believe my 3rd eye was opened. I just let go and was pulled very deep..I had a little drool coming out of my mouth and didn't wipe away. Suddenly I felt this ear splitting pain and pressure between my eyes..and intense throbbing like a flickering sensation. My alarm went off 45 minutes time was up. I don't really know much about this..But am learning.
    Once, When I was 4 or 5 I remember staring at a tiny bubble that was inside glass. It was like I went somewhere. I couldn't replicate this.
    I have had past trauma and memories. To escape thinking and feeling I distracted myself extremely with various things for many years. I tried to never feel if I could help it.
    Now I am learning to meditate and I go in quite deeply quite quickly. I just surrender everything..but nobody told me about this 3rd eye business….is this possible accidentally?! What else should I expect?
    I'm being respectful here, would like some help or guidance. Thank you.
    P.S. I want to add that I now understand many things. I am able to be a witness to pain and not feel it directly at me. I sit like a juror to my life and understand that 10 billion other children could have born to my Mother and it would have been the same result, because it was her story not mine. I just happened to witness it. This came to me also today.

  43. Oh,Sadguru,I went to my dhyana sthithi, only I heard your voice explaining secrecy of chairs,which I have studying in Lalitha sahasranama long back.Gurucrupa came to me as beautiful gift, today it made my day.

  44. Ok. I then I tell… If someone have opened his any chakras in a life or birth, and if he rebirth again just to accomplish his work that he was trying to do, that's why he rebirth again. So in rebirth our allready awakened chakras in Previous Life came awakened. So that they can accomplish there work. Like sadguru was trying to accomplish The Making Of Dhyanlinga . Now he have done it. Now when he will go back won't come back.. complete libration only when we out of Doing or have accomplished our Desire of making or doing something. Small or big.

  45. This is the first time i watched a Sadhguru video. I have been meditating for about 2 months now. Mostly on chakras. Each time i do my crown and forehead tingles. Could you tell me please what that means? Thank you.

  46. Are not practicing Chakras part of the occult?

  47. LOve this. I have been calling it "owl Medicine". the ability to see what is not being shown and to hear what is not being said. You will know befoe the person is done talking.

  48. moral of the story is you have to suffer immensely before self realization?

  49. I’ve experienced the 7th chakra being opened. It’s paradise on earth. But the only problem is you would have to stop living life in order to continue being in that state.

  50. wiish i could spend a few week with u ! thank u so much

  51. maybe i shouldnt do this my #3527965997 if u would have sometime i would love t speak to u sir my nane is zane lott. thank u so much for everything u do Sadhguru!!

  52. That information about Ram Krishnn Paramhanss was too good
    Heard it for the first time

  53. The chakra system is a type of self-suggestion and is a sort of illusion.

  54. so my brown eye is my third eye.

  55. क्या आपने कूदलनी सकती देखी है?

  56. I experienced the serpent bite and my head ached for weeks, with lots of nose bleeds and dizzy where I had to stop driving. Lots of strange things were happening as my perception was going beyond anything it ever had previous. The space between my eyebrows buzzes alive and still does whenever I focus on it. I feel the serpent traverse my spine too. This awakening caused the first moment of detachment from my mind and body. I could hear my thoughts like they were some crazy man talking and I was at the side just listening, he was so unaware of me. I just laughed, he was so silly.

  57. Sir plz upload surya kriya video by sadhguru

  58. In practice only, one would come to know real things. No imagination, no speculation and no guessing work. Sadguru has been okay but he keeps twisting in some important matters. Maybe it was in the part of his intelligent game plan to people depend upon him.

  59. I don't want west my time more pls guuru always makes happy forever my self mind set no stress he's want make me beach I'm looking but talking gunnah muje nei dedo yeeh demak kaaraab larka dusra voo ayegaa ek din zaroor or yeh bagwas bar bar haaa yaa naa sorry guru 🙏🙏🙏🙏👍

  60. Whenever I open my 3rd eye all I see is smelly dirty hairy scruffy unshaven Indian Gurus who need a shave and delousing with DDT

  61. Your voice is very peaceful I notice many times ( I am Muslim belongs from Pakistan ) but I lesson you for Peace .. Thank you

  62. Entire universe resides within us. We understand ourselves we understand the universe already. We were born to uncover this truth of life but we spent it wandering in search of more and more material pleasure. Live your life , have fun, but after certain time achieve this basic purpose.

  63. I have had the house..3 cars…swimming pool. I was miserable. I know longer need things. I have a simple life…and I'm happier without stuff

  64. Very awesome speech
