Events with Sadhguru

at Isha Institute of Inner-sciences

May - July 2023

Immerse yourself in the presence and grace of Sadhguru through Darshans and the In the Lap of the Master program, coming up this May - July 2023. 

These events offer an immense privilege to be in the Grace of the Guru and soak in the environs of a consecrated space. For every seeker, a moment of receptivity and complete willingness in the presence of an enlightened being has the potential to open new doors to deeper dimensions of perception and experience within.

The event offers an uncharted time with Sadhguru where he candidly unfolds his knowing and wisdom, subject to who is sitting in front of him. 

Before and after attending the events, we also welcome you to spend time at the Isha Institute, a deeply consecrated space and a destination for the science of Yoga in its full depth and dimension. Here, you can take the opportunity to deepen and intensify your sadhana (spiritual practices) while Sadhguru is on the premises.

“A consecrated space is a cared-for, cultured space. This is where human beings should be if they want to blossom.” - Sadhguru

Darshan with Sadhguru - June 10th, 2023

Sadhguru: “Darshan is not about listening to some great talk. But how to make you behold? Either I must sing or I must speak. Because I am not good at singing, I speak. Right from the moment you first sit with me, I have been saying, “Just be with me.” That means being in Darshan. This is not a complex philosophy that you have to understand. Simply behold so that the energy imprints itself, because I don’t come and sit here as a person. I have arranged myself in such a way that there is a certain level of vibrance that is worth getting an imprint of.

If darshan has to happen, you have to take the maximum input into you. If you are so meditative that you are absolutely not there – you are an empty house, that is a great way to behold. But if you are in a house-full state, then it is best that you behold with utmost love and tenderness because this is when the imprint of what you see is deepest.”

Guru Purnima Darshan - July 3rd, 2023

Sadhguru: “On Guru Purnima, there is a certain alliance between the Moon and the planets, which creates a receptivity in people to that dimension which we refer to as the Guru. So, this month is seen as the best time to receive the Grace of the Guru and make yourself receptive to the process. This is a good time to earn that attention from Grace.

On that full moon night of Guru Purnima, 15,000 years ago, as Adiyogi turned his attention to the seven sages, for the very first time in the history of humanity, human beings were reminded that they are not a fixed life. If they are willing to strive, every door in the existence is open. A human being need not be confined by the simple laws of nature. 

For people who are on the spiritual path, Guru Purnima is the biggest day in the year because they want to receive the grace of the Adi Guru and every other Guru on the way.”

In the Lap of the Master - July 2-3, 2023 (includes Guru Purnima Darshan with Sadhguru)

Sadhguru: “What we can do with our strength, intelligence and knowledge is very limited. If you open the window of grace, then life will happen in ways that you have not imagined possible. If you leave a certain space within you where your thoughts, emotions, ideas, philosophies, ideologies and prejudices do not enter, then grace will be a torrential force in your life. If you are full of your own stuff, then grace floats around you. This is the tragedy of most human life that a tremendous possibility hangs around them all the time, but they never allow it to happen. The idea, focus and methodology for all spiritual process is just to tear down your persona so that there is an empty presence within you which will become a doorway to grace and possibilities that you yourself could never imagine possible.”
