Kiran Bedi: When you analyze the making of a nation, its making of an organization making of a nation, one of the first few things we do is a SWOT analysis. We do strengths, we do weaknesses, we do opportunities and we do threats. Any making of an organization or a nation. I thought let me put across to you – what is the SWOT analysis of making of a nation, let’s say Bharat, India. What are the strengths of India, what are the weaknesses of India, what are the opportunities we have and what are the threats we need to…Let’s first look at the strengths of India.
Sadhguru: I would bring it down further to an individual. What is needed to build a successful individual, the same things are needed to build a successful nation, it’s not any different (Laughs) (Applause).
Kiran Bedi: Right. Yes.
Sadhguru: If one knows how to build a successful human being of himself in every way – when I say successful, not that just you made money, not just that you get a ranking, not that you just got elected, no. A successful human being means in every way you’re complete. If you make this, you… the same replica is for the nation, in the sense if want to be a good human being to start with all your four limbs should be limbered up and nice, strong and fine.
The four limbs of a nation is just this – the executive, the judiciary, the military and the civil services – all of them must be limbered up and agile. We must do some yoga with all of them. We must knead them. They have all become, you know if you can’t fold your elbow, your elbow stuck here, your this thing is stuck here – these are useless limbs. When you have pain in your limbs, you’ll wish you did not have those limbs, isn’t it (Laughs)? That’s what is happening right now. We wish we did not have them many times because they’ve become such a pain. So keeping them limbered up, these four limbs is very important and the five senses must be on (Laughs). Five senses of… See, always a nation will be successful only when people’s aspirations are kept alive. If people lose their aspiration, it’s a finished nation, okay.
