Lots of things are happening at Velliangiri – and in the world centred around Velliangiri. Sadhguru has been busy in changing the world – as always. And, so are all his disciples, in their own ways. The world too, is responding positively in many ways. A saint’s efforts are always fruitful – they never go waste. More about the happenings in a subsequent Post.

But, here are some of Sadhguru’s words of Wisdom, his Great Quotes of recent past. 

I have tried to put the OPERATIVE PART of these quotes in bold. This is because, Sadhguru’s quotes are almost always, THINGS TO DO & THINGS NOT TO DO.

Not just to read, feel good and forget.

Ø  Harmony in the world will happen only when man is truly  harmonious within himself
Ø  Leadership is not about dominance, leadership is a certain  sacrifice.
Ø  If you know how to keep yourself pleasant within, irrespective of what is happening around you, Ultimate Liberation cannot be denied to you
Ø  The question is not what you do or what you do not do - how  you do it is what changes your life.
Ø  Only when man is willing to change himself, there can be a true  revolution.
Ø  Any method to heighten the presence of that which is the source of creation within you, is yoga.
Ø  The physical needs logic. For that which is beyond the physical, logic is of no use.
Ø  It is only when you become aware of death that you want to know what life is about. Once you come to terms with death and you are conscious that you will die, you will want to make every moment of your life as beautiful as possible.
Ø  Inward is not a direction. Inward is a dimension.
Ø  Being spiritual does not mean being dead serious. If you allow life to happen within you exuberantly, unbridled, you will touch the spirit.
Ø  Being a seeker means no matter what the Vedas said, what Krishna or Shiva said, you have to know the truth in your own experience.
Ø  There is no such thing as right and wrong in life. The question is, are your actions all-inclusive and appropriate.
Ø  Look clearly and deeply - beyond all compulsions of body and mind - what it is that you really want to do, and just do it.
Ø  If you constantly remember that you are mortal, you will walk gently and sensibly upon this planet
Ø  To be spiritual means to be an emperor within yourself. This is the only way to be
Ø  Life has come from a very beautiful source. If you remain in touch with that source, everything about you will be beautiful.
Ø  A spiritual process is not a divorce from life. It is an irrevocable love affair with life
Ø  The Moment you identify something as good or bad, you're just dividing the world
Ø  When your mind is full of assumptions, conclusions, and beliefs, it has no penetration, it just repeats past impressions
Ø  Money can only make your surroundings pleasant. It cannot
create inner pleasantness.
Ø  Do not think about money, think about living well. The most
important aspect of living well is that you are doing what you really
care about.
Ø  If you live your life burning for the highest possibility, in that burning itself, there is liberation.
Ø  If you want everyone to fall in love with you, the first thing is,
you must fall in love with all of them.
Ø  Spiritual process is not about chanting a mantra or closing
your eyes, spiritual process is essentially about enhancing
your perception.
Ø  Whenever a child enters people's lives, most people tend to think it is time to teach. No. When a child enters your life, it is time to learn because between you and your child, who is more joyful? - The child.
Ø  You cannot be receptive when you are too full of yourself.
The less you are, the more you receive. The more you are, the
less you receive.
Ø  Do not try to fix whatever comes in your life. Fix yourself in
such a way that whatever comes, you will be fine
Ø  Everything in this cosmos is happening wonderfully well. But
just one nasty little thought coming up in your head is
enough to make it a bad day.
Ø  f you go on thinking about life, there will be no life left in you. The
only way is to live it, to experience it, and to enhance your
perception of life.
Ø  Confusion is better than stupid conclusions. In confusion, there is still a possibility. In stupid conclusion, there is no possibility.
Ø  The only reason why you are unhappy is because you are trying to be happy.
Ø  Most people only experience peace and transcendence when they are dead. But in the yogic tradition, the word "samadhi" is used to describe a state in which one has transcended the limitations of the body and mind, and this happens in life
Ø  The relationship between the people of India and Japan is not limited to mere trade and commerce. I can proudly say that the earliest Indian export to Japan was Buddha’s teachings, which are still much valued.
Ø  Whether god or somebody else loves you does not make a difference for you. If you are loving, it makes your life very sweet.
Ø  When you live for everyone, everyone takes care of you
Ø  When one is overfed and another one is hungry, I call that a disaster.

=With all Love & Respects 

For all Sadhguru’s Disciples


  1. I am sure that the sixth sense of Sadhguru is quite open. A man can not utter all this with the study of books. He is really enlightend and has devastatingly strong imgative powers. Never heard and seen any person with sucg an excelent depth and rationalism.

  2. Truly wonderful!

  3. He must have had one Eye of a child and another of a guru....

  4. In my life , after I heard of Sadhguru in Vijay TV..i started to know him.now my way life has changed to better..I m just experiancing life with reality..not imagination anymore not conclusion anymore no more anger..I am seeking to be blissfull , to live live as being ..Thank you Sadhguru..

  5. I don't know why he mentioned Japan. Buddhism was taught all over Asia.
