Here’s Sadhguru’s message, spoken during a Times of India interview on International Day of Yoga. He appeals to parents, teachers and children to invest 30 minutes every day in doing yoga for a harmonious body and balanced mind.

这篇文章是萨古鲁在国际瑜伽节接受印度《时代》杂志采访时所分享的讯息。他呼吁家长、教师和孩子们每天为和谐的身体和平衡的大脑投入30分钟的时间做瑜伽。

 

 

Dear parents...

亲爱的家长们...

Sadhguru: Most of the decisions you make come from a place of fear. You fear that if your children don’t get the best education, they will end up on the streets. As a parent myself, I know your concern is valid. After all, as a society we still don’t have a safety net that ensures that nobody will get crushed in life. But understand that things are better today than they were 20 years ago. As an economy, we are growing at 8-10 per cent. This means, all your concerns about how to earn a living will come down. How to make a life is what you need to look at. And nobody can make a life out of the activity he does unless he can put his heart and soul into it. So, it’s important the child chooses what he or she wants to do; never mind how hopeless it looks economically.

萨古鲁:你们做的大部分决定都来自于恐惧,你害怕如果你的孩子得不到最好的教育,他们最终会流浪街头。作为一个父亲,我知道你的担忧是正当的。毕竟,这个社会仍没有一个安全网来保证所有人都不会被生活碾碎。但是要知道现在情况比20年前要好很多。经济上,我们每年增长8-10%。这意味着,你对谋生的担忧应该下降。如何活出生命是你所需要关心的。而只有一个人全身心投入到所做的工作中,他才能真正活出生命。因此,很重要的一点是,由孩子来选择他们想做的事,即使从经济角度来看是多么没前途。

才。”

 

If you really pay attention to how your child sits, stands, thinks, responds to situations, you’d know what he or she needs.

如果你真的去留意你的孩子如何坐、站、思考,如何回应各种情形,你会知道他需要什么。

 

You say you are friends with your children. But if your friendship is a trick to get what you want, then you are a bad friend. If you are a genuine friend, you’d see what needs to be done to enhance your child’s life. You’d pay attention. If you really pay attention to how your child sits, stands, thinks, responds to situations, you’d know what he or she needs. Right now though, all you have is a readymade formula – MBBS, engineering! You are applying this formula forcefully to a life, even without knowing if that is what this life really needs.

你说你是孩子的朋友。但如果你的友谊只是一个让你得到你想要的东西的伎俩,那你是一个坏朋友。如果你是一个真心的朋友,你会看看需要做些什么去提升孩子的生命。你会很留心。如果你真的去留意你的孩子如何坐、站、思考,如何回应各种情形,你会知道他需要什么。而现在呢,你有的只是一个既定配方——临床医学学士、工程师!你将这个配方强加于一个生命,不管那是不是这个生命真正需要的东西。

 

Try this: Let your child invest 30 minutes a day in yoga. Yoga is a tool that will help one do better in the education race as well. It brings inner balance, sharper intellect, better focus. The University of California has done studies on those who did the Shambhavi Mahamudra (a powerful kriya) and found that in three months, neuronal regeneration in the brain is 241% higher than normal. So, it’s scientifically proven that doing a little yoga will make your child more intelligent and balanced; they won’t be distracted by this and that; they will manage their hormones better. Invest 30 minutes a day, and in six months of practice, the child would have gained at least 2-2.5 hours extra in a day and in one year of practice, you would have gained four five hours extra in a day, simply because you do things more efficiently. And while you are at it, try some yoga yourself. It will help you drop your anxiety and get rid of parental peer pressure.

试试这个:让你的孩子每天投入30分钟做瑜伽。瑜伽也能让一个人在学业上进步。它带来内在平衡、更敏锐的智力,以及更好的专注力。加尼福尼亚大学对练习香巴维(内在工程传授的一套克里亚)的人做了研究,发现在三个月内,大脑的神经元再生比一般人要高241%。因此,这已是科学证实的——瑜伽会让你的孩子更加聪慧和平衡;他们不会因这个或那个而分心;他们也将能更好地管理他们的荷尔蒙。每天投入30分钟,在六个月的练习里,孩子将会赢得每天至少2-2.5个小时的额外时间;而在一年的练习后,他们会赢得4-5个小时的额外时间,仅仅因为做事效率会提高。同时顺便,你自己也试试做些瑜伽。它会帮你抛开焦虑和家长间的同辈压力。

 

We should make a world where every child can strive for his full potential without wanting to kill himself. That takes a certain amount of dedication. It won’t happen by just paying school fees. Let’s work towards making that world possible.

我们应该创造一个这样的世界——每个孩子都可以为实现潜能而奋斗,同时又不会想要把自己逼上绝路。那需要一定的投入和决心。这不是交了学费就会发生。让我们为实现那样的世界而努力。

 

 

Dear children...

亲爱的孩子们...

Can I begin by telling you a truth? You are romanticizing your problem a little too much. You have no idea what struggle your parents are going through. The circus they have to do to provide for you, to keep your life going, to make it all happen, you cannot even imagine that! In spite of all that, they are trying to be nice to you.

我可以告诉你一个真相吗?你把你的问题太过浪漫化了一点。你完全不知道你的父母正经历着什么样的挣扎。他们要做那么多事来养家,使你的生活继续,让所有这些事情发生,你甚至无法想象!除此之外,他们还得努力亲切地对待你。

 

It’s in your hands to assure your parents that “I may not become an engineer, but don’t worry, I’ll do ell in my life.”

向你的父母保证“我也许不会成为一个工程师,但别担心,我会生活得很好。”这点是掌握在你手中的。

 

Don’t make a problem out of nothing – you either study this or that, what’s the big deal? But, it’s in your hands to assure your parents that “I may not become an engineer, but don’t worry, I’ll do well in my life.” If you are able to give them this assurance, it may not settle things immediately, but they will see the point eventually. Right now, many of you are not able to give them this assurance. They freak out because they are convinced you will end up on the streets. If you don’t want to do what your parents think is best for you, you should show competence in some other field you like, and tell them, “Don’t worry.”

不要没问题找问题——你要么学习这个要么学习那个,有什么大不了?但是,你得向你的父母保证 “我也许不会成为一个工程师,但别担心,我会生活得很好。”这点是掌握在你手中的。如果你有能力给他们这个保证,尽管不能立刻让他们满意,但他们终究会看到这一点。现在,你们中的许多人没有办法给这个保证。所以他们惶恐,因为他们害怕你会流落街头。如果你不想按照父母的想法去做,你应该在其他一些你喜欢的领域表现你的能力,然后告诉他们,“不用担心。”

 

I want you to remember one thing: all those people you worship as Shiva, Rama, Krishna or Jesus Christ, none of them ever cracked IIT or whatever exam. You worship them because they lived their life well. That’s what you need to do – live well. The human mechanism is the most sophisticated machine on the planet. The problem is you have not even read the user’s manual of this super computer. Yoga is that user’s manual. It will help you become balanced internally, it will make you joyful by your own nature, help you do your best. In doing your best, there is success. You may not be better than someone else, but you will be the best you can. And then, you can handle anything that life throws at you with grace.

我希望你记住一件事情:所有那些你崇敬的人像Shiva、Rama(罗摩)、Krishna(克里希那)或耶稣基督,他们没有一个人通过印度理工学院或其他什么考试。你崇敬他们是因为他们把生活过得很好。这就是你需要做的——活得很好。人体是地球上最复杂的机器。问题是你都没有去阅读这部超级电脑的使用手册。瑜伽就是那本使用手册。他会帮助你的内在变得平衡,它会使你的本性变得喜悦,帮助你发挥最大能力。发挥了最大能力,这就是成功。你也许不一定会比别人强,但你会成为最好的自己。那么你就可以优雅从容地应对生命抛给你的任何情形。

 

 

Dear teachers...

亲爱的教师们...

The education system doesn’t give you freedom to do what you think is the best. The expectation from the system and parents is so strong that sometimes, you don’t even have the time to have an extra word with your students. But even with all these challenges, I am telling you, you can make a difference to developing a human life to its full potential. You can take three minutes out to see, really see, what it is that your students actually need.

我们的教育体制并没有给你自由去做你认为最好的事情。由体制和家长而来的期待是那么强烈,有时候你甚至没有时间跟你的学生说一句课外话。尽管有这些挑战,我告诉你,你可以为一个人实现其全部潜能,起到不同作用。你可以花三分钟来看看,真正去看看,你的学生们真正需要的是什么。

 

Every teacher should look at this: in what simple way, with what little act or word at the right moment, can I inspire these children in front of me.

每个教师都应该思考一下:如何以简单的方式,以小小的举动或语言,在正确的时机去启迪自己面前的孩子们。

 

The way our education system is right now, it’s all about imparting information. There are so many ways in which you can impart this information, but if you remember to put a small spark of inspiration in all these young lives that come to you to learn, that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Information may be useful, it may help them pass an examination or get a job, but if you put that spark of inspiration, they will value you all their lives.

如今我们的教育体制都只是关于传递信息。有那么多的方式可以传递这些信息,但是如果你能在这些年轻的生命里放入一点启迪的小火花,那会伴随他们的余生。信息也许有用处,它能帮助他们通过考试或者得到一个工作,但是如果你加入那启迪的小火花,他们会一辈子都珍视你。

 

Every teacher should look at this: in what simple way, with what little act or word at the right moment, can I inspire these children in front of me. This much you can do, no matter what the system is. And how can yoga help? If you are interested in human wellbeing, then, in is the only way out. Even if you spare two minutes a day before you begin a class, and get everyone to close their eyes, a change will begin to happen. And you can champion that change. That’s yoga!

每个教师都应该思考一下:如何以简单的方式,小小的举动或语言,在正确的时机去启迪面前的这些孩子们。这是你可以做的,不管体制如何。瑜伽如何能有所帮助? 如果你对人类幸福感兴趣,那么,向内是唯一的出路。即便你每天在开始上课前只是花两分钟时间,让每个人都闭上眼睛,改变都会开始发生。你可以引发这样的改变,这就是瑜伽(能为你做的)!

 

Love&Grace,

Sadhguru

爱与恩典

萨古鲁
