Sadhguru Talks @ In Dialog with the Mystic, Prasoon Joshi with Sadhguru, Mumbai, Mar 2014



Questioner: Sadhguru Namaskar. I simply needed to know what’s the significance of doing shradh (Final rites).

Sadhguru: Within the manifestation of life, the bodily life there’s – let me separate this. There may be life and bodily life for the sake of understanding. The bodily life has manifested itself. The bodily life vitality which typically is known as pran or prana has 5 fundamental manifestations – there are ten however that’ll complicate – the 5 fundamental manifestations. These are known as samana, prana, udana, apana and vyana. Inside… After… When an individual is said… Let’s say if a health care provider is observing and so they declared that particular person at a specific second that he’s useless now, within the subsequent twenty-one to twenty-four minutes samana will begin exiting. Which means samana is answerable for sustaining temperature within the physique. Very first thing that’s occur… begins taking place is physique begins cooling down. Someplace between forty-eight to sixty-four minutes prana exits. After that between six to 12 hours udana exists… exits. Until udana exits there are tantric processes with which we may revive the physique, however as soon as udana exits there’s a… a micro, micro likelihood however that’s an impractical likelihood besides that it’s not possible to revive the physique as soon as udana has existed, I imply exited. The subsequent factor is apana – someplace between eight to eighteen hours this exits. The vyana which is the preservative nature of prana will begin exiting from past that – it could proceed to exit as much as eleven to 14 days if it is a regular demise. That’s, any person died of outdated age, with the feebleness of life they exited. For such an individual between eleven to 14 days sure processes shall be taking place within the physique to point out that there’s some factor of life like nails rising, hair… facial hair these sort of issues will be observed. If somebody has died unintentionally, or in different phrases, the life was vibrant and he died – not essentially completely crushed sort of physique – nonetheless the physique is unbroken – that physique, the reverberations of this life will proceed someplace between forty-eight to ninety days.

So until that point there are issues you are able to do for that life. What’s the factor that you are able to do for that life?

This stuff have been left behind – the physique has been left behind and the acutely aware mind and the discerning thoughts has been left behind.

There isn’t a discerning thoughts. As soon as there isn’t a discerning thoughts, for those who drop… for those who put one drop of pleasantness into this thoughts which has no dis… discerning functionality, no mind, now this pleasantness will multiply 1,000,000 fold. For those who put a drop of unpleasantness, that unpleasantness will multiply a minion… million fold. It is like your youngster who doesn’t have the required discernment – he goes out to play – he doesn’t know when to return again.
