Yogi, mystic and visionary, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev is a spiritual master with a difference. An arresting blend of profundity and pragmatism, his life and work serve as a reminder that yoga is not an esoteric discipline from an outdated past, but a contemporary science, vitally relevant to our times. Probing, passionate and provocative, deeply insightful, devastatingly logical and unfailingly witty, Sadhguru's talks have earned him the reputation of a speaker and opinion-maker of international renown.
With speaking engagements that take him around the world, he is widely sought after by prestigious global forums to address issues as diverse as human rights, business values, social, environmental and existential issues. He has been a delegate to the United Nations Millennium Peace Summit, a member of the World Council of Religious Leaders, as well as a special invitee to the recent Australian Leadership Retreat, Tallberg Forum and the World Economic Forum at Davos in January 2006 & 2007, Indian Economic Summit 2005 & 2006. Listeners have been ubiquitously impressed by his astute and incisive grasp of current issues and world affairs, as well as his unerringly scientific approach to the question of human well being.
Sadhguru is also the founder of Isha Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of the individual and the world. Isha Foundation does not promote any particular ideology, religion, or race, but transmits inner sciences of universal appeal.
Following Sadhguru’s vision, the Foundation is engaged in initiating multitudes into the science of inner well-being, helping them to realize their ultimate potential within. The Foundation has also set up several outreach projects for the socially disadvantaged, serving as models for rural upliftment, education reform, holistic and healthy living, and environmental stewardship, such as Action for Rural Rejuvenation, Isha Vidhya, Project Green Hands and Isha AIDS Awareness Campaign and Inner Freedom for the imprisoned.
