Karma and the Spiritual Path

Once you enter the spiritual path, you are making a statement, “I am in a hurry to get to my ultimate destination.” You don’t want to take one hundred lifetimes. And in the process of this one hundred lifetimes you may gather enough karma to last out for another thousand lifetimes. You want to hurry it up. So, once a spiritual process begins, if initiations are done in a certain way, it opens up dimensions which would not have opened up otherwise. You would have lived a more peaceful life if you were not spiritual, but a more lifeless life too, closer to death than life. Without anything fundamental being shaken within you, maybe you just passed comfortably.

What is Karma ?

What you call as “my life” is a certain amount of energy controlled by a certain amount of information. This information, in today’s terms, can be called software. A certain amount of life energy is charged with a certain amount of information. Together, this information technology is you. You become a certain kind of character because of the type of information that has gone into you. The past impressions of life go far beyond the moment you were born, but in your perception right now, at least from the moment you were born till today, what kind of parents, family, and education you had, what kind of religious and social background, what kind of cultural realities – all these impressions have gone in. Someone has become a different character simply because of the type of information that has gotten into him. This information is traditionally called karma or karmic body or casual body – that which causes life.

#5 The quality of life is determined by what lies within.


In many ways, people’s happiness, peace and love are mortgaged to the external situation. So, if the stock market goes up you are happy, if the stock market goes down you are unhappy. The quality of life is not about what is around you. Our ability to live joyfully here does not depend on the size of the house we live in or the car that we drive. These things make your life comfortable and convenient but the essential quality of your life is how you are within yourself right now.

Living joyfully and peacefully is not new to you. You were like that as a child, isn’t it? So, I am not talking about taking you beyond, I am just talking about starting at the square one of your life.

4 You can create a loving world.


You can create a loving world in every single activity that you do in your life. Creating a loving world does not mean doing something more or less. If you live your life constantly focused on what you want, it will unquestionably happen in your immediate surroundings, and it will also begin to happen in the larger surroundings.

Creating a loving world is not a service that you do for someone else. Within yourself, is it more pleasant to be loving, or to be angry, hateful and jealous? Which is a more intelligent way to exist? Loving, isn’t it? All I am saying is, please live intelligently. This is not for someone else’s sake. It is pleasant and beautiful for you. It is an intelligent way to exist.

You are mortal.


A significant thing every human being has to do is structure their psychological and emotional framework around the most fundamental fact of their life – their mortality. Right now, it takes a lifetime for people to understand that they are mortal; they need a heart attack or the appearance of a malignant lump somewhere to remind them.

You need to celebrate and enjoy every moment of your life because life does not wait for you even for a moment. If you were immortal, you could enjoy a hundred years each of depression, anxiety, madness and misery and then on the 500th anniversary, you could become joyful. But that is not the case. You are mortal and it is ticking away. So there is no time for frustration, depression, anxiety, anger or for any unpleasantness in this life.

In the ashram I always tell people, no matter what work you are doing, every day you must stick your fingers into the earth at least for an hour. This will build a natural physical memory, a bodily memory in you that you are mortal.

#1 There is great intelligence in humility.

The difference between a fool and an intelligent person is that an intelligent person knows how foolish he is; a fool does not. Noticing the stupidity of who you are is great intelligence. Anything in this existence – a tree, a blade of grass, a grain of sand, one single atom – do you understand any of these things fully? No. When this is your level of intelligence and perception, how should you walk in the world? Gently, with a little humility, respect and love for everything around you.

If not love, then at least with awe, because you don’t understand a damn thing in this world. If you just learn to walk like this, you will not escape a spiritual process. You don’t need any teaching. It will happen to you anyway. This is why in the eastern cultures, always, you bow down to whatever you see whether it is a rock, an animal or a human being. Being in reverence towards the very earth that you walk upon, towards the air that you breathe, the water that you drink, the food that you eat, the people that you come in touch with and everything else that you use, including your body and mind, is a way of ensuring success in every endeavor that we partake in.

Today, modern science sees the whole existence as a vibration. Where there is a vibration, there is bound to be a sound. So the whole existence is a complex amalgamation of sounds. These sounds, if you listen in a certain way, are a horrible noise. If you listen to it in another way, it is tremendous music. For one who does not perceive the wholeness of the sound, it is noise because he is hearing in bits and pieces. For one who listens to the wholeness of the existence, everything is music. There is nothing which is not music.

In one dimension of yoga, it is dialectically expressed that the human body is Shiva’s damaru (drum). Shiva always carried a drum because it is symbolic of the rhythm of life. When you run a race or when you are excited or scared, you hear “dhun, dhun, dhun” in your head. This is the rhythm of the body. The rhythm of the body is not just in the beat of the heart. Every fiber and every pranic nadi in the body has its own tune. Every chakra has its own sound attached to it. What is sound and what is your form are not two different things. There is a whole science about sound and the body, which looks at what uttering different sounds or being under the influence of different sounds does to the system.

If you bring anything new into your system, it will take about 40 days to become a part of the system. This is because the human physiology goes through a certain cycle every 40 to 48 days, which is known as a ‘mandala.’ This is also the reason why in Ayurveda, for example, medicine is usually given for 48 days – this is the length of time that is needed for the medicine to take root in your system. So if you do a certain sadhana for one mandala, then it gets written into your system like software and functions on a completely different level. It is important that you do it without a break for that period.”

Enlightenment means borderless ignorance. When we say spirituality, we are talking about an existential change.Most of humanity has not experienced the existential. They are experiencing the psychological and physiological. The psychological and physiological are just an accumulation.

Ignorance allows you to explore everything. Look at your little finger, the little hair on your finger, the spot on your skin, the sky – do you know anything absolutely? You may know the process of how something happens. You may know that water evaporates at a hundred degrees, but why does it do that. If you answer that I have another why, and another why. We may know how to use or conduct a few things, but we really do not know the nature of the existence.

Sadhguru spoke of the importance of preparing the body, the chemistry and the nervous system. He elaborated on vaak shuddhi – uttering sounds in a way that is beneficial for you and explained that if one takes care of sound, food, thought, emotion and sadhana for energy balance, one can nurture a body capable of perceiving.
