Sadhguru’s Teachings on Life, Love and Spirituality

1. Joy

Sadhguru's Teachings on Life, Love and Spirituality

“If you learn to include others as a part of yourself, your life will become an expression of joyfulness, not a pursuit of happiness.”

“If you maintain exuberance of energy, freshness of mind, and a loving heart, every day will be a new adventure.”

“If your happiness depends upon what is happening outside of you, you will always be a slave to the external situation.”

Sadhguru's Teachings on Life, Love and Spirituality

“If you want joy, you have to turn inward because that is where it is generated.”

“Joy or misery, ease or stress – all human experience has a chemical basis to it. There are tools to maintain a chemistry of blissfulness within you.”

Sadhguru's Teachings on Life, Love and Spirituality

“Joy comes and goes like breeze. Miseries stick in you like thorns – until you realize it is all you’re making.”

Happiness sprouts from inside oneself; not from searching or from chasing it. Any joy arising from situations and things outside of you, that will rule your happiness. However, when you are accepting of yourself, your joy will become your customary state of mind.

2. Spirituality

“Spirituality does not mean looking up or down – it means looking at your life in the most profound way.”

“There is a region beyond reason. Unless you get there, you will neither know the sweetness of love nor the Divine.”

“There are many ways to attain Mukti or ultimate liberation – through pure energy, awareness, absolute selflessness, or devotion. Devotion is the quickest way.”

“Mysticism is a possibility in every human being’s life. It just demands attention, involvement, dedication, and commitment.”

“When you really understand you are just a speck of life in a limitless cosmos, you will naturally bow down to everything.”

“Your life and how you experience it is entirely your making. Only if this absolutely sinks in, will you become a genuine seeker.”

“Our presence here is just for a brief period of time. We do not have to further shorten it by fighting each other.”

3. Oneness

“Once you attain a certain state of equanimity and blissfulness within you, wherever you go, your wellbeing will be assured.”

“When you know the oneness of life, when you realize the unity of existence, there is love in your heart and the Divine in your experience.”

Sadhguru's Teachings on Life, Love and Spirituality

“Whether you say ‘God is everywhere’ or ‘everything is one energy’ – it is the same reality, expressed in different ways.”

“Until you know the stillness that is the very core of you and the cosmos, ignorance is the only possibility.”

Sadhguru's Teachings on Life, Love and Spirituality

“Mysticism is a possibility in every human being’s life. It just demands attention, involvement, dedication, and commitment.”

4. Yoga

“Yogic practices will bring a high level of vibrancy. If your energy body is vibrant and balanced, physical and mental health is a natural outcome.”

“This is what yogic practices are about – to bring your energies to a place where they are lit and balanced.”

“The very way you breathe, sit, stand, eat, walk, work – everything can become Yoga. You can use any process of life to transcend your limitations.”

“Developing individual genius has been the hallmark of the yogic culture. The lore talks about producing human beings that gods were envious of.”

Yoga is the basis of Sadhguru’s teachings. He preaches the practice of yoga for a good balance between your physical and mental health. He says just by practising a disciplined way of living, including how we eat and breathe and just be in the day-to-day of our lives, we can grow beyond our limitations. 

5. Enlightenment

Enlightenment

“Enlightenment does not mean you are denied anything. Pain, pleasure, everything is possible – but everything is by choice.”

“The walls of self-protection you build around yourself become walls of self-imprisonment over a period of time.”

Enlightenment quotes

pain and pleasure

“As long as you are locked up in your own logic, the magic of life will not reveal itself to you.”

“If you can make everything you do a conscious process, you will live an absolutely Blessed Life.”

Sadhguru tells us that Awakening does not mean to starve without any of the realities of life; it just means realising that whatever we choose to do is by our own choices. Opening ourselves to things beyond reason and logic will let us experience life at its best.

6. Life

“No one has a perfect body or a perfect mind. In that sense, all of us are disabled in some way. But beyond the physiological and psychological dimensions, all life is just the same.”

Life is not meant to be perfect. Life is meant to be lived and to learn from it. Accept that there are greater things than our insignificant problems. Being content with your life will lead to true joy.

8. Health

10. Regret

“Do not make life decisions based on immediate compulsions. Looking back after many years, it should still be a worthwhile choice.”

“Impulsive decisions are different from those taken under stress. Compulsions create situations and incite responses that will lead to regrets later in your life.”

“Our passions can turn into poison if we become resentful when they are not being fulfilled.”

11. Love

“People who logically examine their relationships cannot sustain them. Two bodies, two minds, two emotions can never fit perfectly. Magic of being together can never be contained in logic.”

“Love is a liberating force. Attachment is an entangling process.”

“For most people, love means, ‘you must do what I want.’ No, love means they can do what they want, and we still love them.”

“Trust does not mean that others have to do things the way you expect them to do them. Trust means to become vulnerable.”

12. Passion

“Anything you do willingly can become a great pleasure and a process of growth for you.”

 “There is no need to do what others are doing. You must do what truly matters to you as a life.”

 “Rat race is for rats. As a human being, you can consciously create what you want, without being driven by social compulsions.”

“If life allows you to create something that is larger than you, it is the greatest privilege and fulfilment for a human being.”

13. Resilience

“No one gets anywhere just because they desire it. People get somewhere because they acquire the necessary capability.”

14. Failure

No one gets anywhere just because they desire it. People get somewhere because they acquire the necessary capability

“No one gets anywhere just because they desire it. People get somewhere because they acquire the necessary capability.”

15. Intellect

Intellect

“The more human intellect blossoms, the less room there will be for belief systems.”

“Only as a human being, unlike any other creature, you have the ability to evolve consciously.”

“When you are able to create yourself the way you want, you can create your life the way you want as well.”

16. Hardship

Hardship

“Hardship can be a great opportunity for you to build a deep level of strength and wellbeing. Mental hardship is your making – you must stop that.”

17. Integrity

Integrity

“Integrity means that there is coherence between what you say, what you do, what you think, and how you feel about life around you.”

“Where there is integrity, there will be trust. Where there is trust, there will be an atmosphere for success.”

With all these teachings on some of life’s most complex problems experienced by the Guru himself, you can transform your life and live each day of your life joyfully and purposefully.
