Your physiological strength in many ways is the foundation for your psychological balance .
I think food and toilet more both must be far away .
Then you will keep your physiology in a conscious condition just because I'm laughing and joking about this .
Don't think there is no problem .
There is substantial problem .
Said guru during the lockdown , we have gained a lot of weight from overeating and no physical activity .
Can you offer us some simple weight loss tips , please ?
I was in Chennai a few years ago and I was talking to some of the business community in Chennai .
Uh They were not particularly obese or something but little trying to imitate the planet , not by being on a spin in form .
I mean , so I said , uh you know , as a generation of people look at your condition , if I had come to Chennai 50 years ago or 100 years ago , in what physical form people would be in what level of physical fitness they would be ordinary people .
I'm talking about , I'm not talking about gymnasts , sports persons , not those kind of people , ordinary people on the street or even now in what kind of physical strength and condition .
People are in uh in rural India , for example , I said see suppose it so happened .
You were walking on the street and you saw a tiger , a wild tiger hungry one .
How many of you can at least climb a tree ?
And this is a spectacular show .
A tiger on a Chennai street .
This is not an everyday happening .
It is something you must enjoy .
But how many of you can climb a tree ?
Which is the the trunk of it ?
Usually the city trees .
Uh What is on the avenues and stuff is not more than 8 to 12 ft .
How many of you can climb this 8 to 12 ft and sit on a branch and enjoy the wildlife view ?
No , only those guys who are doing the menial jobs .
The guy who is sweeping the street , maybe he will go sit on the tree and watch how wonderful a breakfast you are .
Why have we become like this ?
It's not the tiger is .
Where is the tiger going to come ?
That's not the point .
Why are you in this condition that you cannot do anything physically anymore or you can go to office and come back ?
Those things are also necessary in today's world ?
But is it not important that you are in some way , physically competent , physical competence is a reflection of your physiological strength and your physiological strength in many ways is the foundation for your psychological balance .
It is no more in question , your physiological strength is the foundation for your psychological balance .
In many , many ways , we've always been saying this the yogic senses , but people have been laughing at it because everything is keyhole .
People say brain is a separate study .
That's why yesterday I confessed with all the neuro experts .
See , I don't have a brain , at least most of the time it's not working .
I keep it off .
There is enough from run the tips of my head to my toes .
There is enough cells with enough memory and intelligence .
They will do my life .
I have disciplined them nicely .
They will do my life the way I want because a large part of day to day work and day to day functioning is , is just a repeat work .
All you need is a clerk .
You don't need a super brilliant person to do all these things .
So I have trained them and they do their work .
I don't have to think how to eat , how to sit , how to stand , how to breathe nonsense .
Uh It just happens by itself because a very stable and effervescent physiological condition is very , very important to have a certain level of psychological freedom .
Otherwise every little thing you do , you have to think once you think inevitably you are confused about every damn thing that you do .
No , you're talking about because because of virus , you ate too much .
This is not because of virus , you're eating too much .
Uh this is , this is a kind of a compensatory activity that , you know , uh you will see this in the cinema theaters and everything .
If you have nothing to do .
Never before in the history of humanity was food simply available like this all the time .
It's the wrong thing that everywhere you walk there is food .
It should not be .
I see some of the corporations in America are organizing like this food and toilet should always be within whatever 50 ft or 100 ft , something they fix 50 ft .
I think within 50 ft of wherever you are , there must always be food and that food is usually one month old , of course , and there is a toilet .
No , I think food and toilet more both must be far away .
Then you will keep your physiology in a conscious condition .
Everywhere there is toilet , it's not good because body has certain resilience you wanting to run to the toilet is not just physiological .
Sometimes it may be when the body at some time it is disturbed at that time , it may be otherwise in normal conditions , it is more a psychological condition than a physiological condition that all the time you want a message .
Not because you have something very significant to say it is simply because it's a release .
Similarly going to the toilet is a release .
Sexuality is a release wherever , whenever whatever all the time , the same things because you are building up nonsense within yourself all the time .
You need a release all the time release .
These things are being openly talked about as part of psychiatry that you must find release .
Why are you penned up ?
I think in one of the interviews , some journalist was asking me said , what do you do to unwind yourself ?
I said , what , why will I wind myself up ?
First of all , I don't wind myself up and then want to unwind somewhere .
What are you ?
Are your grandfather clock or something ?
You wind yourself up .
Even the club watch doesn't need any winding anymore .
It runs by itself .
Why are you winding yourself up ?
This is simply because you understand life as an accumulation .
Yes , body is an accumulation .
Mind is an accumulation but life is not an accumulation .
It's a phenomena that's happening .
If you have not tasted that phenomenon , you know , only accumulations .
You always think that safety is an accumulation , whether it's wealth , money , this that and body , but at least your money , you can keep it in the bank though .
It may be heavy in your mind .
But if you accumulate too much body , you have to carry it around every moment of your life and in the world today , in the world today , 30% of the population is malnourished and around the same percentage of people are obese overweight .
So you can fix it .
The world's problems of malnourishment , you can fix it .
So this practice is there in the Isha Yoga center whenever cause comes up when you know , educating rural Children , raising funds for it became a problem .
Then many people in the yoga center took this up on Wednesday evenings .
I won't have dinner and let that money go to the Children .
I think you must find seven causes like this .
I can give you seven Monday for rally for rivers Tuesday for Wednesday for Thursday is called guru .
This is for your guru Friday for David because that's Saturday , Saturday , you have your dinner , I'm reducing one day Sunday for like this .
You find seven or at least six causes where six dinners you give away morning , you eat .
All right , 10 o'clock in the morning , you eat well and again eat 10 o'clock tomorrow morning .
Um And also because you need to keep social distancing .
Drive out of the town and walk back , get into your bus , take a , buy a ticket for 10 kilometers away and just walk back .
Best you go without your phone and your wallet so that you have to walk back .
Do something .
Come on already .
There is one problem .
You want to multiply your problems .
Uh You want to increase the size of your problem .
Don't do that .
There's enough problem already .
I'm telling you there is substantial problem just because I'm laughing and joking about this .
Don't think there is no problem .
There is substantial problem .
Don't fool yourself because if your body and your mind is in a certain condition .
You can easily fool yourself .
This happened , Shankar and Pila was running a garment shop here in the United States and the lady came to buy some kind of a so he promised her it is 100% .
She took , it went home the next day , she came back and she said , you said it's 100% wool .
But here the label says it is made in Bangladesh and it's 100% cotton .
He said , ma'am , don't you be fooled by this ?
The label is only to fool the moths like this .
There are so many labels all over the world .
Don't go by that .
You , this is a simple experiment .
You must do all of you are sitting now on the floor .
When you get up , you must use only two limbs to stand up all of you in your life .
You must keep yourself however old you are .
This is a simple test for you .
You sit down cross legged and when you want to stand up , you use only two limbs .
That means you don't do four wheel drive , just get up with your legs this much fitness .
At least you must manage .
If you can't climb a tree , there are not enough tigers to offer them to roam in your city .
If you can't climb a tree , it's ok .
But at least you must be able to stand up this much fitness you must maintain .
Please do that for yourself .
