SADHGURU 2016: The Four-Letter Word

Reference: Inner Engineering (Content)

This paper presents the summary of the beginning chapter from the book, INNER ENGINEERING By Sadhguru. The contents are from the first edition (2016) of this book published in the United States by Spiegel & Grau, an imprint of Random House, a division of Penguin Random House LLC, New York.

The summary of the original material (in black) is accompanied by brief comments (in color) based on the present understanding.


The Four-Letter Word

The word “Guru” literally means “dispeller of darkness.” He is there to throw light on the very nature of your existence. The problem is that you suffer a play of your memory and imagination. You need to take charge of it, and not annihilate it. Teachings like “be in the moment,” “do only one thing at a time,” and “positive thinking,” are limited and do not work in the long term.

The only solution for all the ills that plague humanity is self-transformation. Self-transformation is a dimensional shift in the way you perceive and experience life. Self-transformation is achieved by experiencing the limitless nature of who we are.

For me, that self-transformation is the attainment of The Static Viewpoint.
