Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev: We Need Simple And Direct Laws That Limit Reliance On Values, Ethics

“But instead of allowing humanity to overflow, you try to constrain it with ethics. Constraints never work. Curbing people is never the answer; liberating them is the only way.”

—Sadhguru

Instead of fixing individual morality, we should fix the system using laws that are simple and direct; it is best when business is fixed by simple laws where everybody knows what can be done and what cannot.

Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev

The Man: The founder of Isha Foundation loves his motorbikes, is as comfortable in jeans as in yogic garbs, and competes with businessmen on the golf course. His methods for self transformation are drawn from tradition. A regular speaker at the annual World Economic Forum at Davos. He says that businesses need to be governed by a simple set of rules where everyone knows what can be done and what cannot.

The Oeuvre: Has written and spoken extensively on spirituality and society; often weighs in on contemporary issues on television debates.

X-Factor: Charismatic; his mix of spirituality, science and common sense have found many takers in India.

The Message: A moral code doesn't work for society and individuals. Ethics and morals only work in areas where there are no laws.
