Sadhguru answers a question about Saligram, a rare piece of stone, which is like a micro cosmos. He explains that if one does find a genuine Saligram, it could make your life if you know how to use it. Otherwise it can be disastrous.
Sadhguru: Okay. If you do happen to pick a genuine saligram, then you’re in real trouble because you should know how to manage this, otherwise you’ll be in lot of trouble. It can also make your life if you know how to use it. It’s a great treasure if you know how to use it, otherwise it can be disastrous if you do not know how to use it. People who are living in family situations, simple lives without much discipline, without much focus, without much awareness should never ever keep a saligram in their home. If they do they could go through any amount of turmoil. We have seen such families. Somebody, you know, two-three generations ago your grandmother, grandfather, somebody brought a saligram, they…they made their life out of it but after they died the next generation do not know how to keep it and those families go through such turmoil and such horrors which are unimaginable because they simply do not know how to manage the energy. It is like you have a powerhouse, you have a power generating source in your house and you don’t know how to manage the energy and you will be constantly in trouble, isn’t it? Whatever you touch, you will be in trouble. So, this is just like that; it’s a tremendous power store house of energy. It is like a mini cosmos. It is a micro cosmos in its own way because it carries the same type of energy as cosmos would in its magnified version.
So, this thing about seeking ekamukhi, seeking saligrams, please leave these things alone; this is not genuine spiritual process, this is souvenir collection, you know, wherever you go you want to pick up something and think this is sacred, that is sacred. Everybody wants a ekamukhi – you yourself have many faces. (Laughter) When you have many faces, if you wear a ekamukhi you’re asking for trouble. If your whole life is just one pointed and then you wear it, it’s a great thing. Your life is going in different directions, you’re playing many roles, you have different faces for different people that you see in your life… don’t you? Don’t you have many faces? I’m asking. When you have many faces, if you wear a ekamukhi you’re looking for trouble; just like that. Stop looking for these fanciful things. There is something that you can do with this one (Referring to oneself); let’s do that, instead of going about looking for fancy pieces of something in a riverbed or on a tree or wherever else, leave them. If you deserve such things, it will come to you somehow, but I don’t think you need them right now.
