Jagadish Vasudev (Sadhguru) was born in Mysore, India on September 3, 1957, and is a mystic, visionary, and yogi. He had two sisters and two brothers and was the youngest of the five kids. His dadBV Vasudev worked at the Mysuru Railway Hospital as a physician and his mom Susheela Vasudev was a house maker. The family moved frequently due to the nature of his dad’s work. For a short time he lived in Shimoga, Guntakal, and Chikkaballapur before returning to Mysore in 1969 with his family.

Jaggi showed an inclination toward nature during his young years. He spent time trekking around forests alone while he was just a child and developed an interest in snakes, and often kept some as pets.

At the age of thirteen, he took yoga lessons from Malladihalli Raghavendra, and kept practicing pranayama and asanas daily through his youth, albeit without any spiritual aspirations of any kind. At the age of 25 on September 23, 1982, he went up Chamundi Hill and he sat on a rock, where he had a ‘spiritual experience’.

Six weeks later, he left his business to his friend and traveled around extensively in an effort to gain some insight into his own mystical experience. After around a year of travel and meditation, he figured it was time to teach yoga so that he could share his inner experience.

Then in 1983, he taught his first yoga class with seven participants in Mysore. Over time, he started conducting yoga classes all over Hyderabad and Karnataka traveling around on his motorcycle. He subsisted on the produce from his poultry farm rental and donating the collections that he got from his students to a local charity on the final day of the class.

After getting schooled at Demonstration School, Mysore and Mahajana Pre-University College, he graduated from the University of Mysore with a bachelor’s degree in English. All despite having an irreverent attitude to tuition and a spotty attendance record. Defying the wishes of his parents’ wishes, he refused to pursue a post-grad course and took to business instead.

He was named one of India’s 50 most influential people, his work has touched the lives of millions worldwide through his transformational programs. He has a unique ability to make the ancient yogic sciences relevant to contemporary minds. Sadhguru’s approach does not ascribe to any belief system however he does offer methods for self-transformation which are both powerful and proven.

As an internationally renowned speaker and writer of “A Yogi’s Guide to Joy” and “Inner Engineering”, both New York Times Bestsellers, he has been an influential voice at some major global forums like the World Economic Forum and the United Nations. While here, he has addressed issues as diverse as spirituality, socioeconomic development, and leadership. He’s also been invited to speak at some leading educational institutions, which includes London Business School, MIT, Oxford, Yale, IMD, Harvard, Stanford, and Wharton.

In February of 2017, he received the Padma Vibhushan Award by the Government of India, which is the highest annual civilian award, accorded for his distinguished and exceptional service.

Dedicated to the mental, spiritual, and physical wellbeing of humanity and gifted with utter clarity of perception, he possesses a point of view on life which never fails to challenge, intrigue, and surprise everybody he encounters. He has established Isha Foundation, which is a non-profit and volunteer ran organization which operates in over three hundred centers and is supported by more than eleven million volunteers around the world. Through some powerful programs for inner transformation and inspiring social outreach initiatives, Isha Foundation has created a massive movement which is dedicated to addressing every aspect of human well being.

Sadhguru has also initiated many projects for education, the environment, and social revitalization through which millions of people have been given the chance to improve their own quality of life, overcome poverty, and achieve community based and sustainable development.

He married Vijaya Kumari in 1984, with whom he has a daughter with, born in 1990, named Radhe Jaggi, who is a trained Bharatanatyam dancer. He met Vijaya, who had been through a tough marriage and divorce, after a yoga class that same year. After a short romance, they made the impromptu choice to get married while on a trip to Irupu Falls on Maha Shivaratri. She died in the year 1997.

“Inner Engineering” is a non-fiction book that was released in the year 2016. The practice of hatha yoga, as we typically know it, is just one of eight branches of the body of knowledge which is yoga. In fact, yoga’s a sophisticated system of self-empowerment that’s capable of activating and harnessing inner energies in such a way that your mind and body will function at their optimal capacity. It’s a means to create inner situations precisely the way you want them, and turning you into the architect of your own joy.

A yogi lives their life in this expansive state, and in this transformative book, Sadhguru tells the tale of his own awakening, from just a boy with an odd affinity for the natural world to a young daredevil that cross the Indian continent on his motorcycle. He relates the very instant of his enlightenment on a mountaintop somewhere in southern India, where time just stood still and he emerged changed radically. Today, being the founder of Isha, he lights the path for millions of people. Guru, he points out, means somebody that opens the door for you, and a dispeller of darkness.

The wisdom distilled in this profound, accessible, and engaging read offers readers time tested tools that are alive, fresh, and radiantly new. It presents a revolutionary way of thinking about our humanity and agency as well as the chance to achieve nothing less than a joy filled life.

Readers found this to be a fascinating read of this man’s teachings and insights. For those that are ready, it is a tool to help you awaken your own inner intelligence, the supreme and ultimate genius which mirrors the wisdom of the cosmos. The book is filled with moments of awe, wonder, and intellectual challenge.
