Navratri: Celebrate the Feminine – Sadhguru

Navratri: Celebrate the Feminine – Sadhguru


Sadhguru: Navarathri literally means nine nights. Every month, after the no moon day,
or the amavasya, after that, days are counted. Ninth day is called navami.
These nine days are considered feminine. Dussehra is all about – in Karnataka it is
about Chamundi, in Bengal it’s about Durga, but essentially it’s about the feminine goddess… the feminine divinity, because this quarter belongs to her. In this quarter, the northern hemisphere
of the planet becomes gentle because it receives the least
amount of sunlight from now onwards. So everything becomes subdued and feminine,
it’s not “ON” in a big way like that. So the worship of the feminine was prevalent
right across the planet at one time, but unfortunately certain very ambitious approach
to even religion like with everything else, conquest became the mode. When conquest became the mode,
they burnt the feminine out of the planet. We made it like masculine
is the only way to be successful and we have compelled even women to become
very masculine today in their attitude, and approach, and emotion, and thought, because somewhere we have made everybody
understand masculine is the only way to success – conquest is the way. Conquest is not the way – to embrace is the way. You’re trying to conquer the planet,
that’s what has led to all the disaster. If feminine was more dominant factor
or at least evenly balanced, I don’t think you would have any ecological disaster, because feminine and earth worship
came together, always. Those cultures which looked upon the earth as mother
and was in a worshipful attitude towards that, they never caused too much damage
to the environment around them. Only those who saw conquest as the way of life –
that is where this happened. After doing all this damage to the planet,
still half the people cannot even eat properly. There is enough food on the planet
but half the people cannot eat properly. If feminine was dominant,
the population would eat for sure. If feminine was dominant, compassion and love
and aesthetics would be dominant, not conquest. If feminine found a better expression on this planet, maybe our stock market will not fire hit 20,000, but generally people will smile more. Be little more happy, little more loving. Life would be a little more beautiful
which is essentially what we want, isn’t it? After all, it’s in pursuit of human well-being all these
things are done but that’s completely been forgotten because that is the way of the masculine
– that it just goes on in one way. The feminine is not trying to go anywhere. Feminine is happy where it is, that’s the big difference. If these two things are in balance, then we can go
somewhere and also enjoy where we are. That’s what needs to happen in the world.

  1. You should not deify neither the feminine nor the masculine.

    As Galadriel says :
    โ€œAnd now at last it comes. You will give me the Ring freely! In place of the Dark Lord you will set up a Queen. And I shall not be dark, but beautiful and terrible as the Morning and the Night! Fair as the Sea and the Sun and the Snow upon the Mountain! Dreadful as the Storm and the Lightning! Stronger than the foundations of the earth. All shall love me and despair!โ€

  4. What exactly is "the feminine"? Different cultures associate different things to the feminine. Kabbalah and Tibetans consider compassion to be a masculine principle.
