How Many People Would Follow Jesus Today? Sadhguru Answers

In United States of America,
there is a segment of people who believe that next time when Jesus comes,
he will come in United States. Generally, it’s believed he will
come in Mount Olive in Jerusalem, but now US people are saying, “Why will you go to Israel?
That’s not a good place to go, he will come in United States.” So they asked me a question like this in a large gathering, “Sadhguru, what do you think? Jesus will come in United States or in Jerusalem?” I said, “See, last time he came in Jerusalem
and he said, ‘Come follow me,’ only twelve people. Hmm? Today you’re celebrating him as a great being
but only twelve people followed him. In that, one of them freaked on him. All right? But if he comes to United States today,
if he says, ‘Come follow me,’ you have a bank loan, student loan, car loan, house loan, holiday home loan, you’re mortgaged for forty-five years. If Jesus says, ‘Come follow me’, nobody will be there
because everybody has to go to the bank.” So you have entangled yourself in such a way, even if the most significant things happen
you can’t change the direction of your life. Hello? If the greatest things came your way,
you cannot change the direction of your life. This is a slave’s life, isn’t it? What is slavery?
He cannot choose, that is slavery isn’t it? Now you’re making that kind of
arrangements in your life. You cannot choose,
you’re stuck in your own arrangements. A spider weaves a web for other things to be caught. But if you’re that kind of a spider,
you build a web in which you’re caught, you’re a stupid spider, isn’t it (Few Laugh)? And most human beings are in that condition
(Applause) (Laughs). if something significant happens,
you were going this way, if something really significant happened this way,
you can go this way. Your arrangements will not trap you. This is an intelligent life. If you’re smart enough, you will make arrangements that support you, not arrangement that entangle you, isn’t it?

    What absurd and bad advice. So, "sad guru" is basically telling these young people it is ok to abandon responsibilities. So, why does he not simply leave the massive organization that he is enmeshed in?


    So true, almost every human is entangled.
    Society, educated to be part of the bigger machine.
    Sadhguru speaks the truth, who will drop everythung and follow, very few. ๐Ÿ•‰๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ

    What you said is to be thinked by many people who blindly belived in one person as god but the words you said make their own individual as god

    Dear friends,
    As I comprehend, he will not come to anywhere on earth but in your heart if you permit.
    He has knocked the door of your heart.
    It is up to you to open the door and let him in and follow him.
    Following him means loving your most wicked enemy, being crucified in the cross of life's difficulties without complaint , abandoning all worldly desires.
    Can we do that?


    Oh my God I donโ€™t know to praise this guy love this guy or laugh at his jokes he is phenomenal what he said itโ€™s so so true I have no words heads off salute to our one and only Sadhguru is a blessing in this time for us in this existence in this cosmos๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™โค๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿงฟ๐Ÿงฟ๐Ÿ”ฑ๐Ÿ”ฑ๐Ÿ”ฑ๐Ÿ”ฑ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿ™

    Thank you Sadhguru for helping me think through things just for myself and come up with fantastic simple but very perfect solutions.

    I m happy now.

    Actually he is symbol of our true or higher self. God, consciousness or whatever you want to call it, already is within us. We are already in the presence of God but what's missed or required , is awareness. Namaste

    For some reason, when I see this video as I'm scrolling through my feed I read the title and see the thumbnail as a picture of Sadhguru holding an AK-47. Happened twice now. I guess it says something about me? ๐Ÿค”

    How not to get entangled without a minimum income support for basic necessities…..just canโ€™t figure out. We have no skills other than โ€œoffice workโ€…

  13. Tommy Rommazontz

    Then why do so many dopes follow this dude? Sheep. Too many people willing to give somebody else power over their lives. Looking to follow. Looking for something to cling to. Giving up personal responsibility willingly because its easier than taking responsibility. Dopes following frauds.

    Even the smart spider it's entangled building the spiderweb at first though. We cannot bypass building the foundation of our own freedom. Something like that.

    Will Lord Shiva or Krishana parmathama come to India? They will sucide themself on seeing all this. Why u people need gurus like this, u ppl read your own holy books and understand what has been preached in it. Invest Ur time in the holy books if u really need a change Stop hearing someone view n celebrating the prechers. Hope we all are educated to learn n understand what's written in the holy books

    The whole Western world's structure is financial enslavement of people, averaging thirty years of life, one's productive part of the life! The bankers hold one by the ba**s for that period of time that there is no escape. The delusion is the fancy of all those processions that they think it is theirs is truly belonging to the banks!! So, where is the freedom!!? Get up and go to work!!! The bank is looking at you!
