Jaggi Vasudev aka Sadhguru is an Indian yogi, mystic, visionary, and philanthropist, and has been named one of India’s 50 most influential people.
When he was just thirteen, Sadhguru took yoga lessons from Malladihalli Raghavendra, and kept practicing asanas and pranayama daily throughout his youth. In 1982, at the age of 25, he went up Chamundi Hill and sat on a rock, where he had a ‘spiritual experience’. Six weeks later, he left his business to his friend and travelled extensively in an effort to gain insight into his mystical experience. Following a year of meditation and travel, he decided to teach yoga to share his inner experience.
Sadhguru has authored multiple bestselling books, including: A Mystic’s Musings, and Death: An Inside Story, and Inner Engineering: A Yogi’s Guide to Joy which details his transformational system for achieving inner fulfilment.
He has also been a keynote speaker at the United Nations and the World Economic Forum, and his Isha Foundation has more than 9 million volunteers worldwide and is dedicated to addressing all aspects of human wellbeing.
Sadhguru believes that we only have 10-15 years left to save the planet, and he’s determined that it’s going to happen through changing global consciousness. Ultimately, Sadhguru he’s here to call us all on our B.S. and push us to change our ideas about ourselves and consciousness.
