Meet My Guru!

Yogi, mystic and visionary, Sadhguru is one of the most influential people of our times. An Enlightened Master, he has undertaken some gargantuan challenges – work that has been as sweeping as it has been varied. All his efforts, however, have always been towards just one goal: Raising Human Consciousness.

The Guru

Sadhguru has touched millions across the world through his spiritual work. Isha Foundation, which he founded in 1992, has a volunteer base that is over 11 million strong and growing across 300 centers worldwide. Non-aligned to any teaching, philosophy, religion or belief system, Sadhguru’s offering to humanity is based on an experiential knowing of Life. He says, “The word ‘Sadhguru’ is not a title. It is a description. Sadhguru means ‘uneducated Guru.’ I am almost hundred percent spiritually uneducated. I don’t know any scriptures. I come only from my inner experience and the only thing I know for sure is this piece of life from its origin to its ultimate.”

In the Yogic tradition, adepts have identified four paths that a seeker may take to attain Liberation. Sadhguru explains: “These are the only four realities in your life: body, mind, emotion, and energy. If you use your emotions and try to reach the ultimate, we call this bhakti yoga, the path of devotion. If you use your intelligence and try to reach the ultimate, we call this gnana yoga, the path of intelligence. If you use your body, or physical action to reach the ultimate, we call this karma yoga, the path of action. If you transform your energies and try to reach the ultimate, we call this kriya yoga, that means internal action.” As a Spiritual Master, Sadhguru guides seekers on all four paths. He says, “In one person the heart may be dominant, in another person the head may be dominant, in yet another person the hands may be dominant, but everyone is a combination of these four, so you need a combination of these four. Only when it is mixed in the right proportion, it works for you. That is why, on the spiritual path, there is so much stress on a Live Guru. He mixes the right cocktail for you. Otherwise, there is no punch.” Sadhguru offers an array of powerful Yoga programs, tools, methods, techniques for human transformation and wellbeing. Flagship programs – Inner Engineering and Inner Engineering Online – are tremendous tools that help individuals gain greater balance and remarkable clarity in their perception of life.

The Mission

Ecological Initiatives In the past few years, Sadhguru has launched mega ecological initiatives in India to address challenges of Soil, Water and Climate Change such as land degradation, water scarcity, agrarian distress and loss of biodiversity. Sadhguru has been invited by the UN, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) and International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) to explore how these initiatives can be replicated globally. In 2017, Sadhguru launched Rally for Rivers, a massive awareness campaign to revitalize the rivers of India. Cauvery Calling, an action-oriented offspring, was launched in 2019 to restore the severely depleted southern Indian river Cauvery to its former levels. This massive movement spanning 12 years aims to facilitate the planting of 2.42 billion trees in farmlands in the river basin through agroforestry. Sadhguru’s ecological movements are intended to ignite in human beings the recognition that our wellbeing is directly connected to the wellbeing of the planet. Going to the root of the problem, he says, “There is only one problem on this planet – that is the Human Being. We want to bring the consciousness of who we are, what we are on this planet and what the planet is to us, in an experiential way.”
