Sadhguru looks at what it means to be a yogi, and speaks about hatha yoga and the possibility of experiencing life beyond the physical.

萨古鲁解释作一名瑜伽修行者意味着什么,并谈到哈他瑜伽以及超越物质层面去体验生命的可能性。

Sadhguru: Hatha yoga is a tremendous possibility if it is practiced and transmitted in its right sense. Right now, hatha yoga is widely perceived as an exercise form. Changing this perception is an onerous task. Hatha yoga is not about losing weight, fixing your back, or getting healthy. Those are consequences, not the purpose. Exercise is a very recent idea. In earlier generations, only wrestlers and warriors exercised. The rest of the people just worked. There was a lot of physical activity, so naturally, people were well-exercised.

萨古鲁:如果通过正确的理解来练习和传授,哈他瑜伽可以是一个巨大的可能性。现在,哈他瑜伽被很多人当成一种锻炼方式。改变这种观念是个艰巨的工作。哈他瑜伽不是用来减肥或治疗背痛的,也不是为了身体健康。那些都是结果,不是目的。锻炼其实是一个非常新的概念。上一代人,只有摔跤运动员和武士才会锻炼。剩下的人只是干活。那时的人做很多体力劳动,所以他们自然地得到很好的锻炼。

Getting the idea out of people’s heads that yoga is an ancient form of exercise is a big task by itself. But if we don’t do this, true yoga will not happen. When you do Surya Namaskar for example, do not focus on your muscles but on becoming in sync with the source of all energy in this solar system. How long will it take to get there? How long does it take to become a yogi? It can be a moment, it can be a millennium, or it can be never. You might as well ask how long it takes to fall in love with someone, or how long it takes to become a devotee. You can set a time only for physical aspects, not the subtler aspects of life.

要把“瑜伽是一种古老的锻炼形式”这个概念从人们头脑中清除,不是一件容易的事。但如果我们不去做这件事,就不会有真正的瑜伽。比如说当你做拜日式(Surya Namaskar)的时候,不要专注在你的肌肉上,而是要与整个太阳系的一切能量之源保持同步。要多久才能到达那里?要多久才能成为一个瑜伽士呢?它可以是一瞬间的事儿,也可能要一千年,或者永远都不会发生。你不如问问多久才能爱上一个人,或者多久才能成为一个虔信者。你只能在物质层面去设定时间,在生命更微妙精细的方面是不可以的。

If your goal is to become a yogi, it may happen in five-and-a-half seconds, or it may not happen in five-and-a-half lifetimes, because it is not of the physical nature.

如果你的目标是成为一名瑜伽士,这可能会在5.5秒内发生,也可能在你五个半的生命轮回里也不会实现,因为它不是物质层面的。

 

If your goal is to become a yoga teacher, five-and-a-half months are good enough. If your goal is to become a yogi, it may happen in five-and-a-half seconds, or it may not happen in five-and-a-half lifetimes, because it is not of the physical nature. It depends on how an individual being allows it to happen.

如果你的目标是成为一名瑜伽老师,五个半月的时间应该就够了。如果你的目标是成为一名瑜伽士,这可能会在5.5秒内发生,也可能在你五个半的生命轮回里也不会实现,因为它不是物质层面的。这取决于你是否允许它发生。

To be a Yogi  

成为一名瑜伽士

It is my wish that at least an element of being a yogi comes into people’s lives. Otherwise, something very fundamental is going waste. Bending and twisting your body has its benefits for your physical health, but there is much more to being a yogi. Some sense of being a little more than the physical body is the important thing. Even if you are not like that 24 hours of the day, at least a few moments in a day you should be a yogi. If you keep it alive, things that you do not understand, things that you have never experienced, will happen to you. That means you are allowing another dimension to function.

我的愿望是,每个人的生命中至少融入瑜伽士的某一个元素。否则,一些很根本的东西就被浪费了。弯曲和扭转身体的确有益于你的身体健康,但是成为一名瑜伽士远远不止这些。拥有超越身体层面上的感知是一件重要的事。即便你并不是一天24小时都如此,至少在一天中有一些片刻你应该作为一名瑜伽士存在。如果你保持这样的觉知,那些你不理解的事,以及你从未经历过的事,都会在你身上发生。这就是说你正在允许生命的另一个维度起作用。

 

If you do not become a yogi in some way, life will put you through all kinds of things. That is why most human beings choose to hide from life. When someone cannot talk to more than three people in their life, when they cannot walk on the street with an open heart, loving everything that they see and cannot see, they are obviously hiding from life – they want to be safe. A coffin is a very safe place.

如果你没有在某种程度上成为一名瑜伽士,生活会让你经历各种状况。这也是为什么大多数人选择逃避生命。当一个人无法和他/她生活里三个以上的人说话,当他们无法敞开心怀走在大街上,无法去爱他们看见的和看不见的一切,那么他们显然是在逃避生命 — 他们想要的是安全。棺材是一处非常安全的地方。

To be a yogi means to live without the coffins that people build around themselves. Yoga means union. It means you have breached the boundaries of the physical and have the ability to touch and experience everything in the universe. Unless a human being acquires this quality, they are somehow trying to hide from life. 

成为一名瑜伽士意味着不给自己造棺材。瑜伽意味着合一。它意味着你已经冲破了身体的界限,有能力去碰触和体验宇宙中的一切。除非一个人获得了这样的品质,不然他们就会以这样那样的方式试图逃避生命。

If you are really conscious that time is ticking away, you will naturally long to become a yogi.

如果你真正意识到时间在一分一秒地流逝,你自然就会渴望成为一名瑜伽士。

 

You can easily be saved from life, but you cannot be saved from death – no one can. With yoga, you may live a little longer, but there is no insurance against death. Knowing fully well that this life is a limited lease of time, do you want to hide from life or become available to every aspect of it? When I say “every aspect,” people may think of smoking, drinking, sexuality, and things like that. These are only different aspects of compulsiveness. There is much more to life. If you are really conscious that time is ticking away, you will naturally long to become a yogi. 

你可以很容易逃脱生命,但你不可能逃脱死亡--无人例外。通过做瑜伽,你可能会活得长一点,但没人能保你不死。如果你清楚地明白生命是有期限的,那你会想要躲闪生命,还是想去触及生命的每个方面呢?当我说“每个方面”的时候,人们可能会想到吸烟,喝酒,性交以及类似的事情。这些只是不自控行为的不同方面。生命还有更多的层面。如果你真正能够意识到时间在一分一秒地流逝,你自然就会渴望成为一名瑜伽士。

Life Beyond the Body 

超越身体的生命

Physically traveling around and touching the entire universe is out of question. The only way to touch everything and know life in all its dimensions is to transcend the limitations of physicality. The process of hatha yoga is designed to allow you at least a few moments of breaching the boundaries of the physical and transcending its compulsive, cyclical nature. Right now, I would say 99% of most people’s thoughts would be meaningless because they are all around the compulsiveness of the body. It is all about saving yourself, protecting yourself, and keeping yourself comfortable. If you did not have a body, you would not be looking at concerns, you would be looking at possibilities. The only question would be, “What is the ultimate possibility for a human being?” 

以物质身体去周游和触及整个宇宙是不可能的。要触及一切、从各个维度去了解生命的唯一方法就是超越物质的局限性。哈他瑜伽被设计出来,是为了让你至少在某些瞬间能够冲破身体的界限,超越它的不可控性和循环往复。

此刻,我可以说99%的人的想法都是毫无意义的,因为这些想法都是围绕身体的不可控性产生的。都是关于拯救自己,保护自己,还有让自己舒服。如果没有这个身体,你就不会去注意那些问题,而是会去关注可能性。唯一的问题就会是,“什么是一个人终极的可能性?”

 

You must get this one thought out of your head – “What about me?” Don’t worry about that.

你必须把这个想法从头脑中剔除出去 — “那我呢?”不要操心这件事。

 

You must get this one thought out of your head – “What about me?” Don’t worry about that. What about you? You will die! That is the ultimate secret of life. If you drop this concern about yourself, your body will be just a stepping stone in your life. Unfortunately, people are making this physiological mechanism a barrier, not a possibility, simply because they are identified with it. If you remove this one thought, you will become a tremendous possibility. 

你必须把这个想法从头脑中剔除出去 — “那我呢?”不要操心这件事。你怎么了?你会死!那是生命的终极秘密。如果你放下对自己的担忧,你的身体就会是你生命的铺路石。不幸的是,人们把这个生理机制变成了障碍,而不是可能,这一切只是因为他们太认同于身体。如果你把这个想法去掉,你就会展现巨大的可能性。

爱与恩典
