Yogi, mystic and visionary, Sadhguru is a spiritual master with a difference. His life and work serve as a reminder that yoga is not an esoteric discipline from an outdated past, but a contemporary science, vitally relevant to our times. In a series of intriguing discourses and answers to a variety of life-relevant questions, “In the Presence of the Master” offers glimpses of Sadhguru’s profound wisdom.
Without human memory, there would be no civilization. And yet, as Sadhguru points out, human memory is also the source of bondage. For all too often it runs the risk of turning into a form of brainwashing and internal hypnosis, preventing us from seeing life as it is. Quoting the example of Shiva who embodies primal life, nature rather than culture, he reminds us that where there is repetitiveness, there is seldom any receptivity. “Human memory is a fabulous thing. But at the same thing, it is human memory which is the source of all bondage.” –Sadhguru
