Sadhguru: Have you noticed, if you prune a tree, the tree focuses its energy towards the pruned area and the number of leaves that come out in that part of the tree in the next fifteen to thirty days are much more than in other parts of the tree? This happens because the tree directs its energy in the direction of the pruned area. The same thing happens in your body. If you suddenly remove your hair, you will see the energies will move in that direction. People doing certain type of sadhana (spiritual practice) want that to happen. They don’t just shave their head whenever they feel like it. They shave their hair on shivarathri, which is one day before amavasya or the new moon, because on that day, on the amavasya day and the next day, there is an upsurge of energy in the human system, which we want to accelerate a little more.

The hair is taken off on that day because there is sadhana attached to that. If there is no sadhana, it won’t make much of a difference. Some of you may know that sometimes, if women who have never shaved their head in their life shave their hair, they become mentally imbalanced because they are unable to handle the excessive energy in that direction. If there already is a small imbalance, it exaggerates itself. But if it is calibrated properly and the necessary sadhana to support it is there, it works to your benefit. A spiritual seeker or a sadhaka who is not only seeking for his spiritual wellbeing, but who is seeking to become an instrument of a larger possibility, wants to use every little support available in nature. Shaving one’s head is a part of that.

I find this explanation highly inconsistent as it does not feel true for people of other faiths and religions. Wisdom is something that should remain consistent regardless of people's personal faith or cultures. If you say that a sadhaka is usually required to shave his/her head at the beginning of their spiritual sadhana, so that the energies get directed towards the head, what about Buddhist Lamas and Monks in many countries who remain with shaven heads for their entire lives?


Everyone knows the Dalai Lama is such an embodiment of joy, wisdom and compassion. Are you trying to say he has not evolved in his sadhana and still requires to have his head shaven? And he does not cover with a cloth either. If you say people whose two chakras above sahasrara are activated could grow hair and actually tie their hair up to maintain the energies, are you then saying that all Sikhs worldwide are in such heightened states of awareness from their youngest age? There may be some of them in such states; but your answer feels like too much of a generalisation. Several other ancient cultures like the Native Indians of North America and the Aztecs and Incas of South America never shaved their hair all life. With all due respect guruji, it only feels like your answer reflects your own life situation where you have a set of monks with shaven heads as your disciples and you grow your hair and also wear a turban. And I also wish to ask you this. There are so many other wonderful videos/interviews of yours where the wisdom you give is so much in resonance with truth and applicable for all. Why do you choose to get into needless discussions like these that are more tending towards religion and a narrower approach to life?
