MahaShivRatri: Yogi’s Night Out | Join the Celebration, Mar 4 – Sadhguru

Sadhguru you speak so
logically and it makes sense to me but at the same time you’re celebrating
the religious festival of Mahashivratri in a grand way at the Isha Yoga Center. These religious festivals seem like
outdated rituals so I want to know what is the relevance of Mahashivratri to the youth? What kind of festival would you like first of all? Maybe only the Valentine’s Day or something… That is also religious it’s Saint Valentin, all right! So what is Mahashivaratri? In India there are 365 festivals in a year. Yes. Today due to economic reasons and the way
we have structured our work and things, whole lot of them have died. Largely maybe about five or six
are being celebrated in a big way. Almost every Indian festival
is connected to the calendar. We want to do something which is conducive for what’s
happening that day in the rest of the solar system. Why this is important is because
what you call as my body right now, what is human mechanism has come out of this planet. Most people don’t get it till you bury them,
they think they came from somewhere, no. This body is… Solar system is working
like a potter’s wheel to generate this. So everything that happens to the solar
system happens to you in some way, so there is a very keen observation of
what is happening in the solar system today, accordingly we have crafted one kind of
celebration and we do those specific things. So on Mahashivratri night, especially in the northern
hemisphere or only in the northern hemisphere, there is a natural upsurge of energy.
”Oh all this energy, I don’t believe” you don’t! Just go sit on the coast, if there is a
full moon night, is the ocean rising? Well, over two thirds of your body is water, what
makes you think water inside the body won’t rise? All the fluids in the body are also rising. On that night if you lie down, this means when the energies are trying to move
like this you’re kind of obstructing it, it is not only that you lose the benefit you
could also harm yourself in a very sensitive way. All these things matter to you only when
you want to be a full-fledged human being. When I say a full-fledged human being, you want every faculty that can be opened
up in a human being you want it to be opened. You observe all these small small changes
that happen in the system and take care of that. So you want to sit straight, you want
your spine to be erect on that night. When energies are moving upward you
want to help it further go up, not like this. So we created what is called as Jagaran,
that means to stay alert and to stay erect. How to keep people erect?
Just make them sit, you think they will? No I have to entertain you. So, that night we have a celebration
from evening six to morning six. Twelve hours nonstop music, dance, meditation. Various things being done so that everybody stays alert. I will show you a million people in one
place full night, not one person will sleep. Everybody’s on, on, on, ok? Those of you who are just used to night parties, by
12:30, 1 o’clock, 2 o’clock you sleep away not like that. Night means… Night ends when the sun rises in the morning,
so till then we are on, everybody!

  10. Swamy ji , please post a video explaining the science of piercing on different parts of human body and their impacts. Accordingly, the necessity of this ritual in modern time.

  11. Sadhguru earlier I was very rude.. but since I followed you and read the Geeta I have learnt to hold my anger and gradually going towards becoming a cool minded and I have learnt how to deal with difficult situation and how to increase concentration.. thank you sadhguru and thanks to Shree Krishna…

  12. What if it is a day time for me at the time of celebration? Does it connected to the specific time interval and doesn't matter if it is night or day OR it should be just the night on march 4th in my specific time zone? Can anybody answer, please? Wish you all the best if you at least read this <3

  13. So if there’s no upsurge of energies in the Southern Hemisphere , is there no point in our staying up with spine erect ?
    Please need to know .

  15. i do have a question… in the video sadhguru explained the meaning of the jagran based on full moon phase…but isnt shiv ratri celebrated on no moon??

  16. How can I believe what you said is correct? If I wake up whole night how will I feel water level is rising its level in the body. Please I need more explanation to believe. And if I lie down how will I not feel it's rising. My question is correct, I deserve ans.

  17. A western place, a trance music, english language, upper middle class crowd, random puranic story, pseudo science.
    This is the ingredient to make a new age godman in India, to fool Hindus and make their life dumb and worthless.
    If you want to know true spirituality and religion go for some genuine Religious organisations like Ramakrishna Mission, dont fall for this conman.

  18.

  19. ஐயா நீங்க பேசுறது எல்லாம் சரி, ஆன அங்க போய் டான்ஸ் ஆடுறீங்களே, அத என்னால புரிஞ்சிக்க முடியல, நீங்க டான்ஸ் ஆடுறத பாக்கும் போது , எனக்கு வேறமாதிரி தெரியுது. நாங்க கும்பிடுற கோயில்ல எல்லாம் பக்தி பாடல்கள் பாடுவாங்க, பிரசங்கங்கள் நடக்கும், எல்லாமே மரியாதைக்குரிய செயல்களாக இருக்கும். உங்களை மாதிரி பெரியவர் , அதுவும் கோயில், வழிபாடு என்று இருப்பவர்கள் இது போல் ஆடி நான் பார்த்தது இல்லை. அதுவும் இந்த முறை பாடல்களே வித்யாசம், சினிமா பாடல்கள் வேறு உள்ளே வந்துவிட்டன, நடிகையர்கள் வேறு ஆட ஆரம்பித்து விட்டார்கள் , எனக்கு புரியவில்லை குழப்பமாக இருக்கிறது.

  20. Outdated , at least we have a culture we thought about creation . Whatever science is predicting now was said thousands of years ago in India.
