  18. And there I was thinking until today that only Bengalis know about Swami Vivekananda .

  19. Sadhguru, you may have your facts wrong regarding Mother Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda, since the Holy Mother and Swamiji never used to have anything but the very briefest interactions: his doing pranam and Her saying only one or two words in blessing.

    When Swamiji Maharaj was intent on having an animal sacrifice for the first Durga Puja at the Math, shocking all, they RAN to the Holy Mother.

    She did not call him to Her to talk. She merely made the observation that a sannyasi should be the source of REFUGE for ALL BEINGS.

    This quickly reached the ears of Swamiji Maharaj, and he realized his error!!

    So, please believe me, SHE NEVER DID SAY WHAT YOU SAID SHE DID!!! PLEASE do get your facts checked with Belur Math.

    THE KNIFE STORY DID HAPPEN, but with another great sadhu, Swami Saradananda, when the latter was asked to go to the West by Swami Vivekananda to teach.

    Swami Saradananda was very unsure of himself, since he came from a very traditional Bangali background and thought he did not know how to comport himself around what he assumed were very sophisticated and educated Western people.

    Remember, at this time, Bangalis were in awe of the GREAT WEST and ESPECIALLY because Swamiji Maharaj had managed to find himself among the cream of the Western society.

    Swamiji Maharaj picked up a table knife, and offered it handle forward to Swami Saradanandaji, and said, If you behave like this with your Western disciples, you will be perfectly fine.

    That is, Swamiji was indicating to him, keep the sharp point towards yourself, and always extend the gentle aspect, the side that does not hurt, i.e. utmost consideration, to your Western disciples, and you will be fine.

    Please do read and study the lives of Swami Saradananda-ji and Swami Ramakrishnananda-ji in enormous and exquisite depth. There is so much there that will astound, especially the little details.

    What goodness, what gentleness, what loving-kindness.

    And if I, myself, have gotten my own facts wrong, perhaps someone better grounded in the histories/biographies of the Sri Ramakrishna Order should correct my errors. [ Swami Turiyananda ??]

  21. I wonder sadhguru about your saying in Shiva.some clip I listen about you for shiva is not totally understood some time you say Shiva look intoxicated due to chemical reaction present in the body or via yoga and sometime you say he is drunkard and toxicated.can you please clear on this. What is mystic after listen to your speech I wonder it's like a own experience of life and other is yog is like making your life elimination of the thoughts and knowing about the life cycle of universe? It's becoming like a little knowledge is harmful to me now these days
