不再有痛苦
发布日期:2017-02-01 09:55

Pain and suffering – do the two always go hand in hand? Sadhguru explains, pain is physical, but suffering is something you create. He illustrates with examples from his own life and from the lives of other yogis.

疼痛是否一定意味着痛苦?萨古鲁解释,疼痛是生理上的,但是痛苦是你自己创造的。他用自己和其他瑜伽士生命中的例子来阐述这一点。

 

Q: Sadhguru, so many people in the world are suffering pain on a daily basis. How to deal with pain?

提问:萨古鲁,世界上有很多人每天都在遭受着疼痛。应该如何处理?


Sadhguru: Pain is a physical thing. Pain is of the body and it is good for you. When I say, “Pain is good for you,” I am not blessing you with pain. Pain is good for you because right now, you do not have the necessary intelligence to preserve your body if there is no pain in you. Wherever there is no pain in your body, for example your hair and nails, see in how many ways you have cut them.

萨古鲁:疼痛是生理上的。疼痛是关于身体的,而且对你是有利的。当我说,“疼痛对你有利”,我不是希望你疼痛。疼痛对你有利是因为,现在如果没有疼痛,你还没有必要的智慧来让你的身体保存完好。那些你身体上没有疼痛感的地方,例如你的头发和指甲,看看你把它们剪成了多少种形状。

 

Suppose there was no pain in the whole body, in the name of fashion, you would have destroyed yourself in no time. But now, if you are walking on the street and a bicycle comes, you step back. You don’t do this out of humility but because you know the consequence of pain. If there was no pain in your body at all, even if a big truck was coming towards you, you would not move.

假设整个身体都没有痛感,你很快就会以时尚之名把你的身体破坏得不成样。但现在,如果你走在街上,一辆自行车过来了,你会让开,并非出于谦卑,而是因为你知道后果会很痛。如果你的身体完全没有痛觉,即使一辆大卡车朝你开来,你也不会移动。

 

Suffering is Self-Created

痛苦是自我创造的

 

But suffering is self-created. How can there be pain and no suffering? In my own life, during my motorcycle days many years ago, I used to ride all over the country. Once, a freak accident occurred when a vehicle pulled back and pressed my leg against the footrest of the parked motorcycle. Even though the footrest is blunt, it cut my calf muscle right up to the bone.

但是痛苦是自我创造的。怎么会有疼痛而没有痛苦?在我自己的生命中,很多年前在我骑摩托车的那段日子里,我曾经骑遍整个国家。有一次,一件奇怪的事故发生了,一辆车倒车时,导致我的小腿直接被戳进停着的摩托车的踏脚板。虽然踏脚板并不锋利,但它直接戳进我的小腿肌肉,直到骨头。

 

I was in a remote place, so I went to a local dispensary which had no anesthetic facility. The doctor saw the wound and said, “No way we can do this. You have to rush to a bigger hospital because to have this fixed, you need anesthesia.” The hospital was a little far away, and it was in the opposite direction from where I wanted to go. I do not know how to turn back in my life, that is my problem. Whatever happens, I just go. So I said, “No. I will not go this way; I got to go that way.” He said, “You are not going anywhere with this.” While arguing, I was spreading a pool of blood in his clinic, and he finally gave in. My argument did not win, the blood won.

当时我在一个偏僻的地方,所以我去了一个当地的医务室,那里没有麻药。医生看到伤口然后说“我们没办法做这个。你得赶快去一个大一点点医院,因为需要麻药。”那个医院有些远,而且与我想去的地方方向完全相反。在生命中我不知如何后退,这是我的问题。无论发生什么,我只是向前。所以我说“不,我不往那个方向,我是去另一个方向”他说“你这样哪也去不了”争论的时候,血已经染红了他的诊室,最终他放弃了。我的争论没有赢,但是我的血赢了。

 

He started fixing me – no anesthesia. It took about 54 sutures on three different levels to put my muscle together. Through this whole procedure, I was having a conversation with the doctor, talking about this and that. He was sweating and puffing. After it was over, he asked me, “Is there no pain at all in your leg? You are just talking to me.” There was terrible pain but you do not have to make it into suffering. Suffering is always self-created. Pain is just of the body; it is a natural phenomenon. Without pain, you would not know if your leg got chopped off.

他开始给我缝针,没有麻药。大概缝了三层共花了54针才使我的肌肉缝合。在这整个过程中,我一直在和医生聊天,说说这个聊聊那个。他一边喘气一边流汗。结束了以后,他问我,“你的腿完全不疼吗?你一直在和我说话。”我的腿疼极了但是你不需要把它变成痛苦。痛苦永远是自己创造的。疼痛只是身体的,它是自然的现象。没有疼痛,你的腿被锯断了你都不会知道。

 

The Bodiless Yogi

无体瑜伽士

 

There are many other examples. One wonderful example is Sadashiva Brahmendra. A stone panel of this is in the Dhyanalinga, where there is a man walking, his arm being chopped off. It happened in a place called Nerur in southern India. Sadashiva Brahmendra was a nirkaya – a bodiless yogi. How can someone be bodiless?

有许多其他例子。一个很美的例子是关于Sadashiva Brahmendra。迪阿纳灵伽的石板上刻了这个故事:一个人走着路,他的臂膀被砍了下来。这发生在南印度一个叫做Nerur的地方。Sadashiva Brahmendra是一个无体瑜伽士。一个人如何变成无形?

 

The only reason why you cause suffering to yourself and to anyone around you is because you are unaware.

你给自己及周围人造成痛苦的唯一原因是你的无意识。

 

As there is a physical body, there is a mental body and an energy body. The energy body is called pranamayakosha. In the energy body, there are 72,000nadis or pathways through which the energy moves.

正如有物质身,也有精神身和能量身。能量身称作pranamayakosha。在能量身中,有72000个气脉,是体内能量移动的通道。

 

All the 72,000 nadis need not be active for you to exist here physically. With just a few fundamental ones, you can live a full physical life. If all the 72,000nadis become active, you will have no sense of body. It will not exist in your experience. Can you imagine the freedom of sitting here without the body? For example, if you want to sit and meditate, your legs start hurting and after sometime, all you are is just leg pain. All other human qualities evaporate. But if you activate all the 72,000 nadis, if you sit here, there is no sense of body. You can use the body whichever way you want, but the body has no power over you.

你物质上的存在不需要72000个气脉都激活。仅仅需要少数几个基础的脉轮运作,你就能过上完整的物质生活。如果所有72000个气脉都被激活,你的身体将不再有感觉。你将不会感受到它的存在。你可以想象没有身体的那种自由吗?比如,如果你想坐在这儿冥想,过一会儿你的腿开始疼痛,然后腿疼就完全占据了你,所有其他人类的特性都消失了。但是如果你激活了72000个气脉,你坐在这时,就不再有身体的感觉。你可以随心所欲地使用你的身体,身体不再能牵制你。

 

Sadashiva was a nirkaya. Since he had no sense of body, the question of wearing clothes did not arise in his life. He was a naked yogi. He just walked as he was. On a certain day, he happened to walk into the king’s garden. The king was relaxing with his queens on the river bank. Sadashiva just walked naked in front of these women.

Sadashiva是无体的瑜伽士。因为他感觉不到身体的存在,也就不存在穿衣服这个问题。他是裸露的瑜伽士,走路时也是赤裸的。有一天,他恰好走进了国王的花园。国王正在和他的王妃们在河岸边休息。Sadashiva只是裸体地在那些女人面前走过。

 

When you resist what is there right now, pain multiplies itself into suffering.

当你抗拒此刻发生的事,疼痛就会加倍,变成痛苦。

 

The king got very angry. “Who is this fool coming this way in front of my women?” He told his soldiers to find out who this was. They called Sadashiva. He did not turn back and kept walking. They got angry and coming from behind, struck him with a sword. Sadashiva’s right arm was severed but he just continued to walk. The soldiers were terrified. This man’s arm fell off but he did not even turn around. He just walked on. They knew this was not an ordinary man. They ran after him, and the king and everybody fell at his feet, brought him back and established him there in that garden. Even today, you will see his samadhi in Nerur. It is a very powerful place.

国王非常生气:“这个白痴竟敢从我的女人面前走过!”他让他的士兵去查这个人是谁。士兵们叫他,但他没有转身而是继续前行。他们非常生气,用剑从后面袭击他。瑜伽士的右臂断了但是他仍继续往前走。士兵们吓坏了。这个人的手臂掉下来但是他竟然都没有转身,他只是往前走。他们知道这不是个普通人。他们追上他,国王和每个人都跪拜下来,把他请回来。即使是今天,你们都能在Nerur看见他的三摩地,那里能量非常强大。

 

Pain is just there in the body. Suffering is something that you create. But you need not create it. If you are aware, you will not create suffering for yourself. The only reason why anyone would create suffering for himself is because he is unaware. Would you create suffering for yourself intentionally? No.

疼痛只是在身体里,而痛苦是你自己创造的。但是你无需创造它。如果你有意识,你不会给自己创造痛苦。任何人给自己创造痛苦的唯一原因是因为无意识。你会刻意给自己创造痛苦吗?不会。

 

One example that is very popular around the world is Jesus. Nails were being driven into his hands and legs. If nails are driven into your hands and legs, what would you do? You would scream, yell and curse the whole world. But it seems he said, “Forgive them for they know not what they do.” Can a man say this if he is suffering? It does not mean that there is no pain. Pain is there. Probably his body was so much more sensitive than yours. Definitely there was pain, but there was no suffering. When he said, “They know not what they do,” all he was saying is that they are unaware.

世界上很有名的一个例子是耶稣。他的手和脚被戳入了钉子。如果钉子戳进你的手脚,你会做什么?你会尖叫,大喊,诅咒整个世界。但是他却说“原谅他们,他们不知道他们在做什么。”如果一个人痛苦他会那么说吗?这不意味着没有疼痛。疼痛在那,很可能他的身体还比你敏感多了。疼痛是一定的,但却没有痛苦。当他说“他们不知道他们在做什么,”他指的是他们是无意识的。

 

Expanding Your Awareness

扩大你的觉知

 

The only reason why you cause suffering to yourself and to anyone around you is because you are unaware. Only that which you are aware of exists in your experience. What you are not aware of does not exist for you. That context has to be changed. Your awareness has to expand from a limited sphere to a larger perception.

你给自己以及周围造成痛苦的唯一原因是你的无意识。你只能体验到你觉知内的东西,那些你没有觉知到的东西对你来说是不存在的。你的意识必须从有限的范围扩展到更大的维度。

 

When you resist what is there right now, pain multiplies itself into suffering. Already there is pain. You do not have to multiply it within yourself and make something else out of it. When the situation is already bad, you must see how to pass through it as gracefully as you can.

当你抗拒此刻发生的事,疼痛就会加倍变成痛苦。疼痛已经存在了,你不需要让它在体内加倍,制造出其他东西来。当情况不好时,你必须看看如何尽你所能优雅地度过它。

爱与恩典

萨古鲁
