Whats seems nectar in life, is poison. What seems poison in life, is nectar

#Sadhguru #UltimateNectorOfLife #UltimateTruth #BondingWithBeyond #KrishnaOnBhagavatGita

What is Truth?

“What is truth, and what is its nature,” was the question Arjuna asked Krishna on the battlefield of Kurukshetra. Sadhguru explains Krishna’s answer, and elaborates on the “ultimate nectar of life.”

When Arjuna asked Krishna,
“What is the nature of this truth that you are talking about? I am not able to grasp it,”
🌸Krishna said,
 “The nature of the truth is such that if you drink what looks like amritam (nectar), it will become visham (poison). If you drink what looks like visham, it will become amritam.”🌸

The one thing that you don’t want in your life is emptiness.
All the trouble that you take on in your life in terms of education, family, profession, money and problems, is because somehow, you want to ensure that your life is not empty.
That’s all you are trying to do, at any cost.

👉But if you become empty consciously, that is the ultimate nectar of life.

And yet, in your normal perception, it is absolute poison. Nobody wants it. But if you drink it, it becomes your nectar.

🌀"If the divine has to enter you and manifest itself within you, you need empty space."🌀

At the same time, all the other things that you thought of as nectar – whether it was knowledge, money, power, love or whatever – you ran after them, but what is it that has happened to you?

🌀Little pleasures have come to you but ultimately, by the time you look around, your life is gone.
In trying to run after the so-called nectar, you are robbed of life.
And all the bitterness and suffering on this planet is only because people are running after these things, isn’t it?
But if you go for that which looks like poison, your life will become nectar. That is the nature of the truth.🌀

If the divine has to enter you and manifest itself within you, you need empty space.
Otherwise, all that is there is just the devil of your mind.

🌸Only if emptiness happens, divine-ness will happen to you.🌸

You have known love, joy and peace only in moments of emptiness – all the beautiful things have happened to you only in moments of emptiness.
 But logically and mentally, you think emptiness is the one thing that you don’t want.
👉It looks like poison, but it is nectar.

Hitting the Goldmine

If you run after fulfillment, it will be an endless run.
 You will never be fulfilled.

 There are three ways in which you try to fulfill yourself.
✴You want your pocket to be full with wealth.
✴You want your head to be full – you want to know everything.
✴You want your heart to be full – you want to love and you want people to love you.

These are the only three ways through which you are attempting fulfillment.

👉 Now suppose I give you all the money in the planet, will your pocket become full or can it take some more?
It can take some more, isn’t it?
So in the very nature of things, your pocket cannot become full.

👉If I grind all the libraries on this planet and pour it into your head, will your head become full? No, it can take some more. So in the very nature of things, your head cannot become full.

👉If you include the whole population as a part of yourself and love them, will your heart become full or can you include a newborn child also? You can, so this also cannot become full.

🌀So if you run after fulfillment, you will be on an endless run.🌀

🌸But emptiness is always full. That which is empty is absolutely empty. It is never half empty. There is no such thing as incomplete emptiness. To see this, it takes awareness, and only then you recognize the nectar of life.🌸

 👉Otherwise, you mistake the poison as nectar and waste your life running after that.
This is the fundamental of spiritual life.

💁People think that someone on the  spiritual path has given up everything.
🌸They have not given up anything.
🌸They have hit a goldmine.
🌸No problems, no nonsense.

Yoga Namaskar - Practice, which is instrumental in strenghtening the Spine

Sadhguru on significance of Yoga Namaskar Practice, which is instumental in strengthening the Spine.


• A light stomach is recommended (keep a 1.5-hour gap after food). If you do not fulfill this condition on a particular day, please skip the Yoga Namaskar practice.


Questioner] A few days ago, you spoke about the spine being the physical,
emotional, and spiritual growth center. Can you talk to us a little bit about that?

[Sadhguru] The spine, we call it “Merudanda.” “Merudanda” means, it is the axis of the Universe.
A human being can live just as a biological entity or he can transform himself into such a thing he is almost like the center of the Universe.
So, spine is one dimension of you, which determines which direction you go.
If you manipulate the spine in a certain way, the very way your mind and the brain functions can be greatly altered. I should not be saying all these things.
I can blow your head off just by touching your spine, you know, really. I can just touch your spine and have your brain going into a real tizzy, because spine is a root. So, when you do the kriya or when you generally in your life except for sleeping postures, it’s good to keep the spine erect.
That itself will do many things to you, many things.

Isha Chants - Android App

Isha Chants - Click here for link to download Isha Chants

 Isha Chants includes three collections of chants – Vairagya, Ye Devi and Linga Bhairavi Arati – each with its own flavour.


Vairagya consists of five chants, each with its own unique hue.

First, the Nirvana Shatakam is an outstanding composition by Adi Shankara, embodying the essence of vairagya. This chant is regarded as synonymous with the path of brahmacharya.

The Guru Paduka Stotram is a devotional tribute in gratitude and praise of the sandals of the Guru.

Brahmananda Swarupa (“the image of the Creator’s ecstasy”) is a consecrated mantra which one can chant throughout the day to connect to Sadhguru’s energy and Grace.

Aum Namah Shivaya, known as the “Maha Mantra” is a very powerful arrangement of sounds which forms an integral part of a Brahmachari’s sadhana. It is also the highlight of the Mahashivratri meditations at Isha Yoga Center.

Shambho (“the auspicious one”) is a very gentle and beautiful manifestation of Shiva who readily responds to those who call upon Him.

A series of posts that explain the significance of these chants are available in the Isha Blog:
Making Use of Vairagya
Here are Sadhguru’s guidelines on finding which of the 5 Vairagya chants will suit you best.
Listen to each of the mantras a few times. Don't try to like or dislike them in terms of their musical quality or whatever – just listen to them. When you feel one of them really draws you, keep that mantra going all the time – at home, in your car, on your phone – everywhere. After some time, it will become so much a part of your system and will set a certain ambience for you.
These sounds should become like your breath. After some time, without even listening you will be reverberating with the chant. It'll do wonderful things to you.

Ye Devi
These sublimely powerful chants were especially selected by Sadhguru, and adapted by Sounds of Isha, to be played at the consecration of Linga Bhairavi. Ethereal vocals, resounding with the stark intensity of the mantras, and subtle soundscapes of traditional instruments evoke a warmly serene, meditative ambience. A mystical space to connect and resound with the creative and nurturing aspects of the universe.
Linga Bhairavi is the most exuberant expression of the Divine Feminine, unique in her manifestation in the form of a linga. Her triangular-shaped abode is adjacent to the Isha Yoga Center. Powerful, earthy and humane, Linga Bhairavi is the ultimate manifestation of the Mother Goddess – all-powerful and all-encompassing.

Linga Bhairavi Arati
This collection brings three powerful Sanskrit mantras sung by Sadhguru for the Devi.
1. Linga Bhairavi Arati – An appeal for Devi’s Grace and an offering of oneself.
2. Linga Bhairavi Stuti – The 33 auspicious names of the Devi are a key to imbibing Her form.
3. Linga Bhairavi Stuti with Chorus – In this version, you can learn the Stuti by repeating after Sadhguru.
4. Linga Bhairavi Mantra (“Lum Vum”) – Devi is a manifestation of the three-and-a-half chakras in the human system which correlate to one’s health, wellbeing, stability and prosperity.
Consecrated by Sadhguru, these devotional chants describe the manifold qualities of the Devi.
She is the one who is Mother to all, who protects her devotees, who is beyond fear, who is the giver of ecstasy and who grants ultimate liberation.
