How Do You Stop the Mind’s Chatter

Sadhguru answers a question on why the mind seems to have a mind of its own! He looks at how terms such as “no-mind” and “stop the mind” have been used over the years, and asks why one would want to stop the mind - the product of millions of years of evolution. The problem, he reminds us, is not the mind, but that the mind is “telling its own story.” He describes how the powerful kriya, Shambhavi Mahamudra, is one big step towards changing this.

Quotes from this Video

“Why do you want the mind to stop? Why do you have such a horrible prejudice against the mind? You don't mind if your heart is beating – you can meditate; you don’t mind if your liver is working – you can meditate; your kidneys are functioning – you can meditate. If your brain functions, you can’t meditate? What’s the problem? You seem to have something against intelligence.”
