Sadhguru – Thoughts that matter

Never before has mankind been as comfortable as it is today. The kind of comforts and conveniences that even kings did not have 100 years ago are now available to the common man. While material prosperity has increased, man continues to be affected by fear, stress, anxiety, anger, jealousy, etc. Communication technologies have not aided the elimination of these negative attributes, nor added to human values in the society. Yet it cannot be said that we are any happier than our forefathers. This is because people try to create an outwardly perfect life, but the quality of our lives is based upon our interiority.

In the Indian culture there are temples for trees, people worship trees; it is a very common practice. It is not a question of a custom. It came from a certain experience and understanding. It is a certain depth of experience and understanding – you understand that whatever nurtures your life is worth worshipping.
