On this week’s Spot, Sadhguru writes about the idea behind the one hundred and twelve feet tall Adiyogi sculpture that is coming up, the fundamental thing that needs to change in the world today, and the urgency of making it happen. He says, “The way human beings are empowered today, we have a phenomenal ability to create and destroy.”

在本周专栏中,萨古鲁的文章讨论以下问题:即将问世的高达112英尺的阿迪瑜吉(Adiyigi,意为第一个瑜伽士)雕像背后的理念,当今世界需要哪些最根本性的转变,以及让这一切发生的紧迫性。他说,“如今人类如此强大,我们拥有惊人的能力去创造、去毁灭”。

Shiva is in a way synonymous with the Third Eye. One of the many names associated with him is Tryambaka or Trinetra – the three-eyed one. Because of the Third Eye, he perceives “that which is not.” “That which is” isphysical manifestation – “that which is not” is not physical. Right now, what you can not perceive through your five senses is not in your experience. If willing to strive, a human being can see “that which is not,” that which is not physical – Shi-va.The human aspiration to be something more than what they are right now has taken too many lives, has driven too many species to extinction – even the planet itself is in danger. Gathering money, property, relationships, family,or whatever else may make you feel like you are something more – but only in comparison with someone else. By yourself, nothing of you will be enhanced. Only when your perception is enhanced, the way you experience life is enhanced.

从某种意义上说,湿婆是“第三眼”的代名词。湿婆还有许多其他的名字,其中包括“Tryambaka” 或“Trinetra”——即三目神。通过第三眼,湿婆可以觉知到“无”。“有”是物理层面的显化——而“无”是非物理层面的东西。那些你现在无法用五种感官感知的东西,它们不在你的体验范围内。如果一个人愿意为此努力,他还是能看到“无”、那些非物理层面的东西——也就是Shi-va(湿婆)。人类想要超越现有的自我的抱负夺走了太多的生命,迫使太多的物种走向灭绝——甚至这个星球本身都处在危险中。囤积金钱、资产,构建关系、家庭等等,这一切可能让你觉得自己变得更了不起了——但仅仅是相较于他人而言。就你本人来说,你没有任何一个方面得到提升。只有当你的感知力得到提升,你体验生命的方式才会有所提升。

This image of Adiyogi will be the largest face on the planet.

这座阿迪瑜吉像将会是地球上最大的头像。

We are planning to make Adiyogi an iconic presence in the world so that people understand that only enhancement of perception ultimately enhances life. We are in the process of building a hundred and twelve feet tall face of Adiyogi. The number is both symbolic and scientifically significant for our existence because he opened up one hundred and twelve possibilities for human beings to reach their ultimate nature, and there are one hundred and twelve chakras with which you can work. This image of Adiyogi will be the largest face on the planet. Along with the Adiyogi statue, a book on Adiyogi will come out, and hopefully in the next couple of years, a movie.

我们打算把阿迪瑜吉建成一个世界级的标志性存在,这样一来,人们会认识到只有提高觉知力才能从根本上提升生命。我们现在正在建造112英尺高的阿迪瑜吉头像。这个数字对于我们的存在本身既有象征意义,又有科学意义,因为正是阿迪瑜吉为人类开辟了通往终极本质的112种可能性,同时我们身体有112条脉轮可以加以利用。这座阿迪瑜吉像将会是地球上最大的头像。随着阿迪瑜吉雕像的竣工,关于阿迪瑜吉的书籍也将出版发行,希望在未来几年我们能出一部电影。

 

The idea of creating an iconic face like this is not to build one more monument but to use it as a galvanizing force to transform the world from a mass of believers to individuals who seek truth of life and beyond. You know what terrible things believers are capable of. All the conflict on the planet, though some would like to project it as good versus evil, is essentially one man’s belief versus another man’s belief. The moment you believe something, no matter what it is, you become blind to everything else. For belief systems to work, you need a flock. If you apply your own intelligence and think for yourself, your belief will collapse. The nature of seeking is individual. Every individual has to seek within himself or herself.

创造像这样的一座标志性头像,其目的并不是为了多树立一座丰碑,而是为了把它用作转化世界的驱动力,促使信众转化为独立的个人——去探求人生及其之外的真理。信徒能作出的可怕事迹你们已经很清楚。虽然有的人会把地球上的所有冲突映射为善与恶的对抗,但这些冲突本质上是人与人之间信仰的对抗。你一旦信仰什么东西,不管你所相信的是什么,你就开始对其他一切事物熟视无睹。想要让信仰体系运作,你得集结众人,如果你运用智力为自己想想,你的信仰将会崩塌。探索的本质是个人的,每个人都需要向内探索。

 

The most important thing is to build this culture in such a way that it is always an individual seeking, never a religion. The good thing about seekers is they are joyfully confused. When you are seeking, you have something to strive for, but nothing to fight for. The world badly needs this. The way human beings are empowered today, we have a phenomenal ability to create and destroy. When we are striving, we try to create. When we are fighting, we destroy. Believing means assuming certainty about dimensions of which you have really no clue.This will give you confidence without clarity, which is disastrous. Seeking means consciously moving from certainty to uncertainty. When you are constantly stepping into new terrain, it means you are genuinely progressing. Certainty comes from familiarity. When you are making rounds in the same place, obviously you are not going anywhere. People who are exploring different dimensions of life are always uncertain. Great scientists talk in ifs and buts.

目前最重要的事情是以这种方式来构建文化:使真理的追求总是个人的探求,而不是一种宗教。求真者的一个优点是他们总是乐得糊涂。当你开始求索,你就有了可以为之努力的东西,但没有为之战斗的东西。这个世界亟需这样的转变。如今人类如此强大,我们拥有惊人的能力去创造、去毁灭。当我们为某种东西努力时,我们会试着去创造,当我们为某种东西而战,我们会去毁灭。信仰意味着你对自己一无所知的维度抱着确信的态度,这会让你盲目自信,这将会是灾难性的。求索意味着你有意识地从确定走向不确定,当你经常性地踏入新领域,这意味着你真正在进步。确定性源自熟悉,当你在同一个地方不停打转,显然你哪里也去不成。那些探索生命不同维度的人总是感到不确定,伟大的科学家们总是说“如果”和“但是”。

When you are seeking, you have something to strive for, but nothing to fight for.

当你开始求索,你就有了可以为之努力的东西,但没有什么可为之战斗的。

We will unveil this image of Adiyogi next Mahashivaratri. People here are working day and night to keep on schedule. On 24th/25th of February 2017, we will offer him to the world. This is a once-in-a-life time event. Those of you who missed the Dhyanalinga consecration, this is your chance to experience something like this, and to make as much noise as possible about Adiyogi in the world. It is very important today that the next generation are seekers, not believers, that they do not belong to some imaginary heaven for which they only qualify after death. This is what believing does – it makes you dead sure about things that you know nothing about. Adiyogi is significant to start a new awakening in the world, where instruments of self-transformation will be common. As today most people on the planet know how to brush their teeth, they should know how to keep themselves peaceful and joyful. Human beings must know how to manage their body and their mind. If this happens, human beings will become a tremendous potential and possibility.

在下一个大湿婆之夜,我们将为阿迪瑜吉像揭开面纱。在这里,所有人都夜以继日地工作以确保按时完工。2017年2月24日-25日,我们将把阿迪瑜吉奉献给世界,这是一次千载难逢的盛事。那些错过了迪阿纳灵伽圣化仪式的人们,你们现在有机会经历一次这样的盛事,让阿迪瑜吉尽可能在全世界造成轰动吧。当下很重要的一点是确保我们的下一代是求真者,而不是信徒,他们不属于某个臆想出来、只有死后才能抵达的天堂。信仰就是——让你对自己一无所知的东西确信无疑。阿迪瑜吉对世界开启新一轮的觉醒起到重要作用,到那时,自我转化的工具将会非常普遍。正如现在这个世界上大多数人都懂得怎么刷牙,他们也应该知道怎么让自己保持平和与喜悦。人类必须懂得如何管理自己的身体和头脑。如果这一切能实现,人类将会具有无穷的潜力和可能性。

 

Right now, people are capable of making everything a struggle. This is because they do not have tools for self-transformation. It is time we change that, starting in our homes and social surroundings. We can create a culture where we focus more on how we as human beings work. If you understand how your own system works, you can employ it in many wonderful ways. Otherwise, you live by accident, which means you are naturally anxious. That way, the simplest things can be a great struggle. What are most human beings doing? They are earning a living. If they wish, they reproduce. And they will die one day. Every other creature is doing that too, quite efficiently. The point is not that everything that human beings have created is negative. The quality of science and technology and what it can do to the world essentially depends upon what kind of people handle it. The pointis to create people who can use science and technology in a sensible way, to enhance life for ourselves and for every other life form on the planet. Not in a way that is destructive for ourselves and for everything around us. Not in ways that brings trouble and suffering upon ourselves and everyone else, which is what is happening right now.

现在,人们总能把所有事情变成挣扎,因为他们没有掌握自我转化的工具。现在是我们改变这种情况的时候了,就从我们的家庭和周边社会环境开始吧。我们可以营造一种文化,更多地关注我们作为人类是如何运作的。如果你了解自身系统是如何运作的,你可以通过各种绝佳的方式善用它。否则,你的生活总是由偶然构成,这就意味这你自然而然地处于焦虑不安中。这样的话,最简单的事情都可能变成极度的挣扎。大多数人都在做什么样的事情?他们在谋生,如果他们愿意的话,他们还会繁殖后代,然后有一天死去。其他物种无一不是这么做的,而且它们还很高效。不是说人类创造的一切都是负面的。科技的质量、科技对世界的影响从根本上来说是由那些运用它的人所决定的。关键的问题是,我们要培养出能以合理方式运用科学技术的人,从而改善我们自己的生活,改善地球其他生命形式的生活,而不是运用科技毁灭我们自己、毁灭我们周围的一切,更不是为了给自己和他人带来问题和痛苦,但这恰恰是现在正在发生的。

 

You may have noticed, the last two, three summers have been hotter than ever before. In the Himalayas, you can see this too. At Gomukh, where the river Bhagirathi is born, water was spouting out from the mouth of the ice cave like a fountain. Now the ice has melted to such an extent that you can walk a mile into the cave, and only a small stream is flowing out of it. Many peaks that used to be covered in snow throughout the year are not anymore for months on end. River Kaveri is not touching the ocean anymore for nearly three months in a year. In one generation, we have made a river that was perennial for many thousands of years into a seasonal one. What all this means is – the tools of science and technology that we have are in irresponsible hands. What we need is not more science and technology but a transformation of individual human beings. If tools for transformation are not transmitted in a big way in the coming decade, it will become more and more difficult for our children to live well in theworld.

你可能已经注意到,过去两三年的夏季气候比往常更加炎热。在喜马拉雅山,你也能看到这点。在果木克(Gomukh)——帕吉勒提(Bhagirathi)河的发源地——过去这里的水犹如喷泉般从冰穴口喷涌而出,现在冰川已经融化到这种程度,你甚至可以走进洞穴一里地,也只有一小股水从里面流出来。许多曾经终年积雪的山峰现在连着几个月都看不到积雪了。高韦里河(RiverKaveri)一年之中将近三个月都无法流入海洋。我们仅仅是一代人的工夫,却把几千年来四季不枯的河流变成了季节性河流。这一切意味着——科学技术的工具已落入不负责任的人手中。我们需要的不是更多的科学技术,而是人类个体的转化。如果在未来十年,转化的工具没有得到大范围传播,那么,我们的孩子想要在这个世界上好好生活将会变得越来越困难。

It is my wish and my blessing that we as a generation should have the privilege of  making this happen for future generations.

为了子孙后代,我们这代人有此殊荣让这一切发生,这是我的心愿也是我的祝福。

We have just started a new solar cycle. In many ways, the next twelve years are going to be the golden period for spiritual movement on the planet. If we do the right things in the coming decade or so, it will bear fruit much more easily. Human intellect is readier than ever before for something like this. Things are falling together – 2016 is coinciding with similar situations as they were when Adiyogi first taught. All these things are good for us. It is my wish and my blessing that we as a generation should have the privilege of making this happen for future generations. We want to use Adiyogi as an iconic presence to make this happen. We are not promoting him as a god but as a yogi. A god  means you have to worship him. A yogi means a possibility. We want to create spaces where tools for transformation are offered to everyone who comes, beyond race, religion, gender, and creed. The first one has happened in Tennessee. No miracles offered, no place to petition – just sadhana; but the numbers of people who are coming there are increasing by the day.

新一轮的太阳活动周期刚刚开始。从很多方面来看,未来12年将会是地球上开展灵性活动的黄金时期。如果我们在未来十多年能做对的事,收获累累硕果将会是很容易的事情。相较于以往任何时期,现在人类的智力能更好地准备接收这样的东西。很多事情都汇聚到一起——2016年的情形正好和阿迪瑜吉第一次传授灵性修行的情形相类似。所有一切对我们都是有利的。为了子孙后代,我们这代人有此殊荣让这一切发生,这是我的心愿也是我的祝福。我们希望把阿迪瑜吉当作一种标志性存在来促成这一切的发生。我们把他当作瑜伽士来推广,而不是当作神。神意味着你得崇拜他,而瑜伽士意味着一种可能性。我们希望能创造出这样的空间,使得转化的工具可以传给每个来到这里的人,无论其种族、宗教、性别、教义。首个这样的空间已经在田纳西州诞生了。这里不创造奇迹,没有地方供你祈愿——仅仅是做灵性练习,但是去那里的人却与日俱增。

 

If we create the necessary atmosphere, similar places, where people can receive tools for transformation, will happen everywhere in the world. If the necessary integrity and the power of the space are created, people will invariably come. Today, more people than ever before are seeking. More people than ever before are disappointed with whatever belief systems are being propagated. A huge mass of people still hang on to their belief, even though it does not make any sense to them – simply because they do not see a better alternative. It is our responsibility to make sure they find a better alternative, because in this is the wellbeing of the world.

如果我们营造必要的氛围,这种让人们接收转化的工具的地方会遍布世界各地。如果我们使创造的空间纯净而有能量,人们一定会来到这儿。现在开始探索灵性的人比从前要多,现在对信仰体系所传播的东西感到失望的人比以往要多。还是有很多人仍然紧紧握住自己的信仰,尽管他们觉得这些信仰讲不通——只是因为他们没有找到更好的东西来替代。让他们找到更好替代品,这是我们的责任,因为这么做是世界福祉所在。

 

If we want a peaceful world, we need peaceful human beings. If we want a loving world,  we need loving human beings. If we want a sensible world, we need sensible human beings. If we are interested in creating the kind of human beings that we want to live with, that we want the world to be inhabited with, and that we want our children to live with, we have to make sure that in the next ten to twelve years’ time, every child, before  they reach ten years of age, learns a simple process, where they at least close their eyes and sit for seven to ten minutes. Every human being on the planet should know some simple tool for self-transformation. Unless we bring this into their lives, violence and disaster will continue and multiply in the world. By 2050, they are expecting about 9.7 billion people on the planet. The more crowded it gets, the more intense situations will become. If we have to live in close proximity, it is very important that people are as pleasant, peaceful, and joyful as they can be. That is why tools of transformation become super important.

如果我们想要世界和平,我们得让人类变得平和。如果我们想要创造一个充满爱的世界,我们得让人类充满爱。如果我们想要创造一个明智的世界,我们得让人类变明智。如果我们想要创造出我们愿意与之共生的人类,如果我们希望这个世界栖息着这样的人类,如果我们希望我们的孩子能与这样的人类共存,我们必须确保在未来10到12年内,每个小孩在十岁以前必须学会一种简单的练习,让他们至少能闭上眼睛静坐7到10分钟。地球上的每个人都应该掌握某种简单的自我转化工具。除非我们能把这些带到他们的生活中,否则暴力和灾难将会在世界上持续滋长。到2050年,预计地球上有将近97亿人口。地球越发拥挤,局势就越加紧张。如果我们不得不在如此逼仄的空间里共同生存,确保人们尽可能地喜悦、平和、开心是非常重要的。自我转化工具之所以极其重要,原因就在于此。

 

I want all of you to somehow make sure everyone in the world will know about the unveiling of Adiyogi. Not everyone will start doing yoga the moment they see his face, but the word “Adiyogi” will slowly work on them. The entire world should know something is being done to create more pleasant human beings. This is the most fundamental business for any generation – to leave the world a little better than the way we found it. In terms of environment, we will not be able to reverse the destruction that has happened in our lifetime. But at least we can leave people in a better state. If they are peaceful and joyful, I am sure they will fix the environment. Let’s make this happen.

我希望你们能让世界所有人了解到阿迪瑜吉揭幕式的消息。不是所有人在看到他的头像时就会开始做瑜伽,但是“阿迪瑜吉”这个字眼会慢慢地在他们身上起作用。整个世界应该了解到,为了培养出更喜悦的人类,我们正在做一些事情。这对于任何一代人来说都是最根本的事情——确保世界比我们最初发现时更美好。在环境方面,我们这辈子造成的破坏已经没法再逆转,但至少在人这方面,我们可以让他们处在更好的状态。如果他们平和喜悦,我敢肯定他们会去修复环境的。让我们一起努力,让这一切发生。

 

爱与恩典
