 Self realization is the key to happy and peaceful living, said Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev.

Speaking at the inauguration of Mystic Kalinga, a two-day international festival of poetry and performances here today, Sadhguru, explaining the rationale behind Indian cultural practices of rituals amid quest of seekers to find out real meaning of Life, He said, “If you realize you do not know something, then you will try to find out. But if you want to know something but do not have the time or inclination, then you will believe. Later, Sadhguru answered different questions from the audience about meditation and yoga being alternate to curing mental illness, saying it has the potential to heal mental illness of certain degrees with constant practice. Describing key aspects of Indian philosophy, he said, instead of being entangled with etymological meaning of conceptual words mentioned in ancient scriptures, seeing the world as it is and self-realisation is the key to happy and peaceful living.

In a specially dedicated session moderated by poet Arundhati Subramaniam, Indian mysticism and hidden Indian philosophical messages of life were discussed through short tales and stories in the context of Sadhguru’s recently launched book Adiyogi: The Source of Yoga .
