Jaggi Vasudev ( Sadhguru ) - Spirituality is not a disability – it is a phenomenal empowerment of life.

Isha Foundation is a non-profit, spiritual organization founded in the year 1992 by Jaggi Vasudev (or Sadhguru as he is now known). It is based at the Isha Yoga Center near Coimbatore, Tamil nadu, India. The foundation offers yoga programs under the name of Isha Yoga. It has over 9 million volunteers. 

Isha Yoga is the masthead under which the Isha Foundation offers yoga programs. The word isha means "the formless divine"

Isha Foundation is devoted to raising human consciousness, and fosters global harmony through individual transformation. Guided by Sadhguru, it is a vital resource for exploring the ancient science of yoga in all its depth and dimensions. The foundation offers a variety of programs that provide methods for anyone to attain physical, spiritual and mental well being. Its offerings allow members to deepen their experience of life, and reach their ultimate potential.

A book that empowers you to explore your spiritual self and could well change your life. "More Than a Life" is the astonishing story of Sadhguru – a young agnostic who turned yogi, a wild motorcyclist who turned mystic, a skeptic who turned spiritual guide. Pulsating with his razor-sharp intelligence, bracing wit and modern-day vocabulary, the book empowers you to explore your spiritual self and could well change your life. In his early years, Jaggi Vasudev (or Sadhguru as he is now known) was a chronic truant, a energetic prankster, and later a lover of motorcycles and fast cars. It is evident that the same urgency, passion and vitality echo in his spiritual pursuits to this day, from his creation of the historic Dhyana linga - the mission of 3 lifetimes - to his approach as a guru.

In Sadhguru's view, spirituality and science, faith and reason, the sacred and the material, cannot be divided into easy binaries. He sees people as "spiritual beings experimenting with the material rather than the reverse", and liberation as the fundamental longing in every form of life. Truth for him is a living experience instead of a destination, a conclusion. The possibility of self-realization, he strongly believes, is available to all. Drawing upon prolonged conversations with Sadhguru, interviews with Isha colleagues and fellow mediator, poet Arundhathi Subramaniam presents an evocative portrait of a contemporary mystic and guru – a man who seems to pack the intensity & adventure of several lifetimes into a single one.
