不只是个家庭主妇
In this week's Spot, Sadhguru posts an excerpt from a recent "In Conversation" with Juhi Chawla on the question of motherhood and career. Sadhguru says, "I have asked many ladies, 'What are you doing?' They say, “'Oh, I am just a housewife...' They do not seem to understand the significance of being able to nurture two or three new lives." Sadhguru describes the responsibility and beauty of being a mother, and about whether mothers should also have a career. Enjoy!
 

Sadhguru speaks about Shivarathri, the night of Shiva, and the powerful possibility it offers to integrate the human body.

下面是萨古鲁关于湿婆之夜的开示,还有它调谐身体的强大能力。

 
 
 

 

 

Sadhguru: The 14th night of the lunar month – the night before the new moon – is the darkest night of the month. It is referred to as Shivarathri. When we say “Shiva”, one aspect is we are referring to the Adiyogi, the first yogi. Another aspect is, the word “Shiva” literally means “that which is not.” That which is, is creation. That which is not, is Shiva. Today, modern science says the whole creation has come from nothing and will go back to nothing. Everything comes from nothingness and goes back to nothingness. Nothingness is the basis of existence. So we are referring to Shiva as the basis of existence. “That which is not” is the basis of that which is.

萨古鲁:阴历月的第十四夜(印度历法)——新月的前一晚——是整个月份当中最黑暗的一夜。它被称作湿婆之夜。当我们谈到“湿婆”,一方面我们是指阿迪瑜吉(Adiyogi),第一位瑜伽士。另一方面,“湿婆”这个词字面意思是“无”。有,是万物。无,是湿婆。今天,现代科学讲,所有的创造都来自于无,也会归于无。一切来自于无,归于无。无是存在的基础。所以我们把湿婆称作存在的基础。“无”是有的基础。

 

The word Shivarathri literally means Shiva’s night. On that day, there is a natural upsurge of energies in your physiology.

Shivarathri意为湿婆之夜。那天,你物质身体里的能量会自然提升。  

 

If you look up at the night sky, there are billions of stars out there, but that’s not the important thing. There is a lot more empty space than the number of stars. Creation is just a miniscule. It is the vast emptiness which is the big thing. Creation is held in the lap of that emptiness. We say the whole creation is happening in Shiva’s lap and refer to Shiva as the “Dark One.” Ironically, modern scientists are referring to that which holds everything together in this existence as dark energy . They are calling it dark energy because they are not able to describe it in any other way and are unable to grasp the nature of what it is. They are just short of saying Shiva!

仰望夜空,数以亿计的群星闪耀,但那不是重点。空空的虚空比星星的数量要多得多。万物看起来是那么渺小。广大的虚空才是真正重要的。万物躺在虚空的怀抱中。我们可以说,万物在湿婆的怀抱中运行,我们把湿婆比作“黑暗的合一”。具有讽刺意味的是,现代科学家把整个存在中连接万物的称为黑色能量。他们称之为黑色能量,是因为他们不能用任何其他方式来描述,也不能了解其中的内涵。他们只差把湿婆这个名字说出来了!

 

So this whole Shiva stuff is not about some God up there, this is just physical sciences expressed in a dialectical format; it is a certain way of expression, but it is just describing the physical nature of the existence.

所谓的湿婆并非高高在上的上帝,它只是物理科学辩证的表达;它是一种表达方式,只是描述存在的物质特性。

One of the names for Shiva is Bhuteshwara – the lord of the elements. The Pancha Bhuta Aradhana which takes place every Shivarathri in the Dhyanalinga is mainly to access that dimension of grace in the Dhyanalinga. 

湿婆的另一个名字是Bhuteshwara——元素之主。在迪阿纳灵伽(Dhyanalinga)里每个湿婆之夜举行的Pancha Bhuta Aradhana主要是为了在迪阿纳灵伽里直接连接到神圣的恩典。

 

The word Shivarathri literally means Shiva’s night. On that day, there is a natural upsurge of energies in your physiology. To make use of this we have specific sadhana in yoga. Fundamentally, whether it is the individual human body or the larger cosmic body, essentially they are made of the pancha bhutas or the five elements – earth, water, fire, air and space. What you call as “myself” is just a mischief of these five elements. If you want to realize the full potential of this mechanism that you call a human being, or if you want to transcend this one and become one with the larger cosmic mechanism – whether your desire is for the individual or for the universal – unless you have a certain amount of mastery – knowingly or unknowingly, consciously or unconsciously – over these five elements, you can neither know the pleasure of the individual self nor the blissfulness of the cosmic being.

Shivarathri意为湿婆之夜。那天,你物质身体里的能量会自然提升。为了利用这一天,我们瑜伽里有具体的课程。从根本上说,不管是个人的身体,还是庞大的天体,都是由五大元素(pancha bhutas)组成——土、水、火、气体和空间。你称作“自己”的这个人只是这五大元素跟你开的一个玩笑。假如你想把你称之为人的这个系统潜能充分发挥出来,或假如你想超越这个系统,与庞大的宇宙系统合而为一——不管你的意愿是基于个人还是宇宙——除非你能有一定的掌控——对这五种元素,否则你既不能体验自我的快乐,也不能体验作为宇宙人的极乐。 

 

One of the names for Shiva is Bhuteshwara – the lord of the elements. The Pancha Bhuta Aradhana which takes place every Shivarathri in the Dhyanalinga is mainly to access that dimension of grace in the Dhyanalinga. Pancha Bhuta Aradhana creates a powerful possibility where you can integrate your system and allow the five elements in your body to bind much better.

湿婆的另一个名字是Bhuteshwara——元素之主。在迪阿纳灵伽(Dhyanalinga)里每个湿婆之夜举行的Pancha Bhuta Aradhana主要是为了在迪阿纳灵伽里直接连接到神圣的恩典。Pancha Bhuta Aradhana创造一种强大的可能,使你可以调谐你的系统,让五大元素在你的身体里更好地协作。

 

From one body to another, how well integrated these five elements are, determines almost everything about that person. If this body has to become a stepping stone for a bigger possibility, it is very important that the system is properly integrated. The air that you breathe, the water that you drink, the food that you eat, the land that you walk upon and the fire of life in the form of the life force, these are the ingredients with which your physical self is made. If you keep these controlled, vibrant, and focused, health, wellbeing and success in the world are assured. It is my endeavor to create various devices which will allow people to make this happen for themselves in such a way that the very way you exist is a Pancha Bhuta Aradhana.

一个人的身体里,五大元素协作的程度决定着一个人的一切。假如这个身体决定要成为更高灵性等级的阶梯,那么这个系统能够恰当地协作是非常重要的。你呼吸的空气、喝的水、吃的食物、脚下的土地及以生命力的形式燃烧的生命之火,这些是组成你物质身体的要素。假如你能掌控这些,让它们充满活力,集中专注,世间所追求的健康、幸福及成功则不在话下。我就是在努力创造一些工具,借助这些工具,人们可以实现所有这些。然后你们的存在方式就成为Pancha Bhuta Aradhana。

爱与恩典

萨古鲁
