“The greatest thing that you can do in life is to live to your peak and to set an example that there is a way to live beyond all limitations.”
– Sadhguru

Sadhguru is a man whose passion spills into everything he encounters. A fearless rebel from the start, his childhood was punctuated with solitary forays into the jungle for days at a stretch, snake-catching and class cutting. In youth, his blunt clarity into life made him an unofficial counselor to his problem-ridden college mates. His love of adventure led him on motorcycle expeditions, and his early business endeavors into poultry farming and construction were met with success. Just when you’ve summed him up as a cool maverick, he surprises you with a gentle side that can shed tears of compassion and extract laughter from hardened faces. Equally at home with bright-eyed village children, ash-smeared yogis and top-notch executives, Sadhguru defies any narrow description. With a keen mind, balanced by a heart that knows no boundary, he infects his zest for life into all who seek to live their lives to the fullest.

Mountain Mystique

The Western Ghats, the Himalayas and Kailash are familiar terrains for this ardent trekker. Treading in absolute reverence yet completely at home on these sacred mountains, it seems that he meets more of his kind there than anywhere else…

Game for Life

When the competitive streak surfaces, watch out!

Man and Machine

His fascination with wheels traces back to his youth. Spur-of-the moment motorcycle expeditions took him riding across the Indian subcontinent. Even if these days he seems to have simmered down to driving four-wheelers, those riding with him will tell you about the ease, speed and precision with which he maneuvers on all kinds of terrains, from rocky off-roads to Indian highways.

Adventurer

Flirting with danger and embracing thrills,

Adventure is his middle name.

Flair

With a healthy dash of verve and touch of élan, Sadhguru’s style and flair embody his zest for life.

Globetrotter

Known to have an “inhuman schedule,” with over 20 hours a day of incessant transitions between programs, meetings and phone calls, a flurry of engagements make him play hopscotch from one country to the next. But he always makes time to see the sights, meet the people, and immerse himself in the places he visits.

Poet

Poems burst forth in rivulets of ink, scrawled across pages of a notebook. Deciphering his handwriting not a simple task – some are clear, some obscure – but here you can find a collection in readable font!

Author

A prolific author with over 100 titles in 8 different languages.

Of Flora…

In a day and age where many of us would be totally lost in the wild, Sadhguru, as the child he was and the mystic he is now, has always been in deep communication with nature.

…and Fauna

It is said you can tell a lot about a man by the way he treats other creatures.

Snakes

He enjoys a close friendship with these graceful reptiles. In his childhood, Sadhguru was an expert in anything to do with snakes. Later he shared his room with over 20 poisonous snakes, including cobras and vipers.

Master Chef

A refined gourmet who pays attention to every spice and ingredient comprising a meal. If you ever get to sample something he cooked, be prepared for an explosion of taste and lifelong enslavement of tongue.

Architect

Ashram buildings reflect their designer’s style and sense of aesthetics, giving the entire place an air of rich yet earthy elegance.

Inventive

When the absence of a passport prevented him from traveling further than India’s borders, he decided to run his own business. Money was only a means to an end, just another kind of passport to pursue his appetite for adventure, from poultry rearing to real estate and construction, success always came easy.

Family Matters

A gentle and attentive parent, yet never overbearing, as a child he wasn’t quite the obedient type! His father and siblings surely could tell us a lot, but it was most likely Vijji’s and Radhe’s world that would have rocked the most.
