Sadhguru: There are many aspects to the usage of vibhuti or sacred ash. First of all, it is a great medium to transfer or transmit energy, and it has an ability to help direct and control the energy body. Apart from that, there is a symbolic significance to applying it on the body. It is a constant reminder of the mortal nature of life – it is like you are always wearing mortality on your body.

萨古鲁:关于圣灰的使用有许多层面。首先,圣灰是一种很好的传递或传输能量的介质。而且,它有能力帮助你引导和控制你的能量身。此外,用在身体上还有象征的意义。它时刻地提醒着你生命终有一死的本质——就像你身上一直披着一件死亡的外衣一样。

 

Normally, yogis use the ash that they pick up from the cremation grounds as vibhuti. If this ash cannot be used, the next alternative is to use cow dung. There are other substances used but the basic material, the body of it, is cow dung. If even this ash cannot be used, the next alternative is to make it of rice husk. This is indicative that the body is not the core substance, it is just the husk.

通常,瑜伽士使用他们从火葬场捡拾的骨灰做圣灰。如果没有,可以用牛粪做替代。还用其他物质,但是最基本的成分,主体部分,是牛粪。如果牛粪也没有,就用米糠替代。这寓意是人的身体不是核心,只是一层外壳而已。

 

Why do we use sacred ash?

为什么我们用圣灰?

 

Unfortunately, in many places it has become a scandalous business where they are just giving a certain white rock powder as sacred ash. But if it is properly prepared and you know where and how to apply it, sacred ash makes you much more receptive; and the place where you apply it on your body becomes more sensitive and goes towards the higher nature. So, before you step out of the house in the morning, you apply sacred ash at certain points to receive the divine around you, not the devil. Depending on which aspect of you is receptive at that moment, you can receive life in different ways and from various dimensions of who you are. You must have observed this – at one time, you saw something and experienced it in a certain way. Some other time, you saw the same thing and experienced it in a totally different way. The way you receive life makes the difference. So, you want the higher aspects of you to be receptive, not the lower.

不幸的是,在许多地方,这变成了一门丑陋的生意,他们只是给人们某种白色的石粉来充当圣灰。然而,如果你恰当地制备,而且,你知道在哪里用、如何用,圣灰会使你变得更具有接收性。你抹圣灰的那个身体部位会变得更敏感,从而走向生命更高的本质。所以,早上出门前,你可以把圣灰涂抹在某几个点以接收你周围的神性。你能以何种方式、在何种维度来接收生命,取决于你在那一刻对哪方面有接收性。你一定注意过,有时,你以某种方式看待或体验事物;而换个时间,即使是同样的事物,你对它的体验却完全不同。这种差异正是源于你接收生命的方式不同。所以,你得让你的更高层面(而非较低层面)具有接收性。

 

Within your physical body, there are seven basic centers representing seven dimensions of experiencing life. These centers are known as chakras. A chakra is a certain meeting point within the energy system. These chakras are not physical, they are of a subtle nature. One can experientially know these chakras, but if you cut the body and see, you will not find any chakra. As you move into higher levels of intensity, naturally the energies will rise from one chakra to another. If you receive life from the higher chakras, the same situation will be different for you than if you receive life from the lower chakras.

在你的物质身内,有七个基本的中心,代表着体验生命的七个维度。这些中心称为脉轮。脉轮是能量系统内的能量交汇点。这些脉轮不是物质的,它们是精微的。人可以体验到这些脉轮,但如果你切开身体去看,你不会找到脉轮。随着你提升到更高层次,能量自然会从一个脉轮升到另一个脉轮。如果你从更高的脉轮接收生命,即使是同样的情形,你对它的体验也会不一样。

 

How should we apply sacred ash?

我们应该如何使用圣灰?

 

Traditionally, vibhuti is taken between your thumb and your ring finger – you don’t have to pick up a lot of it, just a little bit – and applied between the eyebrows, known as the agna chakra, at the pit of the throat known as the vishuddhi chakra, and in the center of the chest where the ribcage meets, known as the anahata chakra. It used to be common knowledge in India that you must apply it at these points. The reason why these particular points have been specified is because sacred ash makes them more sensitive.

传统上,取圣灰时用大拇指和无名指,不必取很多,只要一小点即可,涂抹在双眉之间,也就是眉心轮的位置;然后是喉咙根部,即喉轮;以及胸腔的中心——肋骨的交汇处,即心轮。过去在印度,你得在这几个点涂抹圣灰,这是常识。之所以要涂抹在这几个点,是因为圣灰能使这些点变得更敏感。

 

Vibhuti is usually applied at the anahata so that you receive life as love. It is applied at the vishuddhi so that you receive life as power; power does not mean just physical or mental power, there are so many ways in which a human being can be powerful. The idea is to make the life energies very strong and powerful so that your very presence has an influence on life around you – you don’t have to speak or act – if you simply sit, you influence the situation around you. This kind of power can be developed within a human being. Vibhuti is applied at the agna so that you receive life as knowledge.

圣灰涂在心轮,你接收的生命就是爱。涂在喉轮,你接收的生命就是力量。力量不仅仅指肉体或精神上的力量,一个人可以在很多层面有力量。我们是要让生命能量变得强有力,这样,你的存在就会对你周围的生命产生影响——你不必说话也不必行动——如果你只是坐着,你就能影响你周围的情况。这种力量可以从人的内在进行发展。圣灰抹在眉心轮,你接收到的就是生命的智慧。

 

This is a very deep science, but today, without understanding the science behind it, we simply apply it like a stripe on the forehead. The one who has stripes one way does not agree with the one who has the stripes another way – this is stupidity. Vibhuti is not something that Shiva gave, or this or that god gave. This is not a question of belief. In Indian culture, it has been looked at deeply as a tool for a person’s growth. Properly prepared sacred ash has a different vibrancy. There is a need to revive and make use of the science behind this.

这是一门很深奥的科学,但是今天,我们在没有理解圣灰背后的科学原理的情况下,只是简单地把圣灰在前额抹成条纹状。有人抹成这种形状,有人抹成另一种形状,两者还会发生争执——愚蠢的争执。圣灰不是Shiva(湿婆)给予的,不是这个那个神赐予的。这不是个与信仰有关的问题。在印度文化里,圣灰一直被视为个人成长的工具。恰当制备的圣灰具有完全不同的活力。很有必要恢复和使用这背后的科学。

 

Love & Grace,
