A commoner’s view of Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev

We can see sadhguru Jaggi vasudev as a sensible Osho. So much of controversy surrounded Osho’s life, whereas Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev has kept himself a safe distance from all controversies. In spite of this, he has attained so much of popularity all over the world. Entering into small controversy here and there will help one to grow and attain popularity. I feel as of now Sadhguru has not been caught into this trap.

As far as his teachings are concerned it is nothing new. But all the Upanishadic teachings need a master to be fully grasped and obsorbed, or else it will be mere words. It will not create the necessary impact in us. Take for example Swami Vivekananda. He had already read enormous volumes of books before he met Shri. Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. But the books he read had not taken him beyond doubt. Only his meeting with Ramakrishna Paramahamsa transformed him. Likewise we always need a guru to be transformed from the mundane to something which we dont know at present.

I feel, for that we  need a master and in the present day masters, Sadhguru Jaggivasudev can be counted as one among the top. There is always a criticism regarding his lifestyle and close association with top politicians to achive his goals. As they grew, a beautiful temple and ashrams have been constructed at velliangiri and at present the common devotee is not allowed to go beyond the temple unless you know someone inside the ashram. Initially when I did my programmes this was not the case and everyone was free to stay in the ashram and move freely with the inmates as well. But as the organisation grew, a big gap has come between the master and the common struggling disciple. Even meeting or seeing him from a distance has become a problem. This is slightly disturbing.

Sometimes we feel that in the present day world we are not able to see a guru as simple as Shri. Ramakrishna Paramahamsa or Ramana Maharishi of Thiruvannamalai. But anyway the qualities of gurus differ and it is better we accept the way it comes to us at this point of time.

  3. Nice summary ,there is a certian attraction in JaggiJi. You have summarised quite well.
    Write a reply with your experience on the isha yoga program has it transformed you and made it powerful life swami vivekananda.

  4. sensible osho ?? so you mean osho is not sensible..??

    • Of course! Had he been sensible, he would not have faced the kind of difficulties he faced in his life. He would have contributed much more to the spiritual evolution of the world rather then entering into various problems/tussle with different nations which deported him mercilessly.

      • haha..you mean he should have behaved cunningly.. untruthful.. not speaking against organised religions, pope, shankaracharya, saibaba etc.,. you mean he should have behaved against himself..You mean he should have some secret agreements with the politicians. sorry.. that is not osho. Osho somewhere said ” meditation cannot be explained, but i can intimate you what are all not meditation” . He spoke against all the ugly past, ugly customs, even spoke against gandhi in public meetings. By speaking publicly he can expose their reality. that much courage he had naturally, because he is enlightened and a real master. HE HAS CONTRIBUTED MUCH TO SPIRITUALITY. than any other masters walked on earth. he will continue to contribute. what is spiritual contribution.? HIS WHOLE LIFE, HIS COURAGE, HIS EACH AND EVERY TALKS, HIS TRUTH, NOT IN WORDS, BUT IN REALITY IS HIS CONTRIBUTION.. HE WAS NOT ONLY DEPORTED FROM VARIOUS COUNTRIES, HE WAS MURDERED. his whole life he lived at the brink of death. that is what he taught. if you attain the truth, really, even if the whole world comes against you, you will stand for truth.

  6. Very good observation! To add to what you said, Osho’s interest was only on the individual. On the other hand, Jaggi Vasudev liberates the individual as well as make the seekers contribute to the society in parallel…

    I differ from your opinion of commenting Osho as not being sensible… Well, he was responding continuously, and we cannot judge those responses as not being sensible based on the reactions from the society…

    I would rather say Osho was not cunning and calculative.

  7. Your insights are good and sensible. Thank you for expressing them.

  8. Rajneesh is fundamental teaching is to be conscious in waking, sleeping and during all activities. What he wanted he has told many times during his life. Is whole method was dropping the mind and see what is directly. Sensibility is part of the mind and hence it does not matter if you are sensible or otherwise. So if you ask, did he contribute to spiritual evolution, yes. He has given you the ultimate key that can open all locks present, past and future and I am not sure if you need any thing more than the witnessing conscious. All else is seasoning that all.
    Why he behaved in a particular way only he knows. But how many of us can develop a conscious life style… Its very easy hear and participate in religious talks/ discourses, but very difficult to practice as the test happens in real life
    That y Christ when he says Love is God immediately say Love they Neighbor. Because he knows its difficult to start from where u are. So rather than analyzing a Siddha’s life style it may be beneficial for us to become one.

  9. When you compare…mind plays….
    Even sadhguru cannot liberate en masse…nobody can..otherwise enlightened beings would have done that long ago..
    At the end of the day its You…the self…
    No?
    Loving sadhguru doesnt meanthat you have to compare..
    Your statement that sadhguru is a sensible Osho …
    Just tells that u dnt have the courage to stick to the master if the whole world thinks otherwise of him or he acts in a cetain way…aka Mr controversial…
    Osho created a controversy 93 rolls royce…
    Now its easier for sadhguru to be accepted as golf playing ..heli flying..SUV dr7v8ng guru…nahi to ye controversy unko uthani padti…aur tum unko chhod dete…
    Osho had a task very different from Sadhguru
    And he said…
    Main kisi purani parampara ka ant nahi..ek nayi shrinkhla ka prarambh hoon…
    He destroyed so that buddhas after him could buildanew…
    Sadhguru is doing that…so will the others who come after him
    Stop this mind meddling….and meditate under sadhguru…you will be able to see
    At the end…sadhguru is Osho Shiva Budhha Krishna…becaude he is That…
    Parmatma mein jo dooba phir bacha kahan?
    Abhi jeevan aur gehre se dekho…
    Pranam aur prem
