Jivasu’s (Pradeep Kumar) teachings are called Naturality or Sahajta. Naturality is to ‘to live according to our nature’ and ‘walk our own path’. The core of Jivasu’s teachings is about the fear of death (and life) and the emergence of the ego in response to that fear. The ego helps us to escape the fear of death and promises us an illusory immortality. This illusory immortality is needed during the early stages of life but we must eventually go beyond the ego in order to experience freedom from fear.
