Kiran Bedi engages Sadhguru on the issue of what holds Bharat together as a nation, despite being ethnically and culturally so diverse. Sadhguru starts by explaining that what we know as India or Bharat varsh has existed for over 8,000-10,000 years. Though it was divided into various political entities, it is the fundamental spiritual longing in people which has kept India together for so long.
Recorded live on June 6, 2014, during the "In Conversation with the Mystic" event with Dr. Kiran Bedi and Sadhguru.
Sadhguru, we said…we just talked about Vande Mataram. Why do we call our country Mataram why not Patram…pita why Mataram? Why is it motherland, why not fatherland, why not both?
Sadhguru: Because though essentially a nation is the people but the boundaries and the definition of a nation comes from a land. A land or earth we’ve always seen it as mother because if we sow a seed, life comes back at us. So we see it as a woman. So almost everywhere except in certain very martial cultures, always nation has been seen as a woman or a mother because it's a definition of a defined aspect of geography which makes a nation in a certain sense.
Kiran Bedi: Yes. Is that the only reason? When did it begin?
Yogi, mystic and visionary, Sadhguru is a spiritual master with a difference. An arresting blend of profundity and pragmatism, his life and work serves as a reminder that yoga is a contemporary science, vitally relevant to our times.
