Ishanga 7% is an opportunity to take Sadhguru’s grace in your life’s endeavors. It involves an active, voluntary participation by donating 7% of your earnings on an ongoing basis to support Sadhguru’s larger vision of a conscious planet, and partnering in this unique generational endeavor to raise human consciousness and protect the planet from further degradation.
Bond of Grace, formerly Mahima Yantra in the US and Nanmai Uruvam in India, is a consecrated form that has been placed in the sphere of the Dhyanalinga to imbibe its energies.
Ishanga 7% Partners have an opportunity to participate in an exclusive online program called “Sadhguru Offers Bond of Grace.” In this online program, you will be initiated into a powerful process to be practiced every day to enhance your connection with grace.
Ishanga 7% Partners are not required to have the consecrated form or participate in this ceremony to be available to grace. However those who need or prefer the support of a consecrated form can register for the upcoming ceremony.
Bond of Grace next ceremony date to be announced.
I have continuously felt Sadhguru's presence since I signed up for the Ishanga 7% in late 2015. I feel my life and career are on autopilot, bringing me opportunities and growth which I was incapable of by myself alone. Soon after becoming Ishanga 7%, I got a job at one of the world's top Management Consulting firms. In the next two years, I traveled across the world and was promoted to Associate Partner. In another year's time, I served the CIO of a $70B Fortune50 company and now lead technology for a large business unit. All this from a Software Architect position just a few years ago. While one cannot ascertain why things really happen in life, his presence within myself has certainly altered my trajectory and led to a more intense and rewarding life.
By becoming an Ishanga 7% partner you nourish the life within you and enhance your receptivity to grace

You become a part of Sadhguru’s vision for humanity and Isha’s various projects through your Ishanga 7% Partner contributions
Anyone who wishes to have Sadhguru’s grace as a support for their life’s endeavors can be an Ishanga 7%, namely, salaried employees, professionals or business owners.
There is no obligation for you to contribute if you go through a period without any income. When the income resumes, your contribution can resume.
Donations to Isha Foundation Inc. are tax deductible under section 501(c)(3) of IRS for US taxpayers.
Due to the nature and sanctity of this commitment, there is no prescribed way to calculate the 7%. However, here are some general guidelines:
It can be based either on gross or net income, pre or post tax; revenue or profits.
If you have a business and salaried income (or other sources of income), you can include all your income in calculating 7% contributions. For example, you can make a yearly contribution for your business income and periodic contributions for your salary income.
If you and your spouse are both earning and willing to contribute, you can either register for Ishanga 7% as two separate contributors (hence, two separate IDs) or include the joint income in calculating the 7%. This may also depend on how you prefer to file taxes, jointly or separately. Alternatively, if your partner is not yet ready to join the program, you can make the contributions based on your income alone.
Employer matching donations are a great way to contribute to Isha. However, given the nature of the Ishanga 7% commitment, your contributions should come from your income. Employer’s matching donations can be an addition to your 7% contribution. You may look up your employer here (scroll to the middle of the page).
You can choose your donation frequency, as it will vary based on individual situations. Donations can be spread throughout the year. You can make your contribution either at regular intervals (monthly, quarterly, semi-annually) or multiple one-off payments subject to your income. Typically, salaried people may prefer to contribute monthly while someone running their own business may prefer to contribute at the end of the year when the books are closed.
The payment methods include online credit card and bank account withdrawal (ACH). Both have recurrent options available. We recommend using bank withdrawal (ACH) donations through bank accounts as it avoids service fees and maximizes your donation. Once you submit your Ishanga 7% application, we will share the website link to make the donation. While we encourage making your contributions online on the website, if you need to send checks or money orders, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you wish to avail tax savings for the current year, please mail a check dated within December of this year.
If setting up bank withdrawal, please do so online at the Ishanga 7% donation web page.
If you are residing in Canada, you can contribute via Paypal from our site and it would be converted to US dollars or you can send a check.
Usually, monthly donations are deducted on the 15th of each month.
Yes, you can change the details as needed. Please write to us at email@example.com with your ID and we will guide you.
SP ID was a unique ID provided to Ishanga 7% partners as a reference in their communications and donations. We have now simplified the process; your email ID used for single sign-on is sufficient. You no longer need to use your SP ID; instead, make sure you log in using your SSO email ID and communicate with us using the same email ID.
The Bond of Grace Yantra is a consecrated form made of copper and is placed in the sphere of the Dhyanalinga to imbibe its energies. Ishanga 7% partners can be initiated into a sacred process by Sadhguru through the Bond of Grace Yantra Ceremony.
Yes, what was formerly Mahima Yantra in the US and Nanmai Uruvam in India is now referred to as Bond of Grace Yantra.
We are now offering the Nanmai Uruvam form in the Americas as well, so the same energy form is now offered globally.
Receiving the yantra is optional and not mandatory. You can remain an Ishanga 7% partner and contribute even without getting initiated into the yantra process. The sanctity and commitment of the Ishanga 7% program remains irrespective of the yantra. However, some may find it easier to connect with an energy form. On the other hand, some may opt out of receiving the yantra due to their lifestyle or other considerations (frequent travelers, unavoidable time constraints, already have other yantras, space constraints, family/business partners may not be ready, etc.).
Yes, there is a daily 10-minute process for this yantra. The process and instructions will be communicated to you during the yantra ceremony.
If you are traveling for longer than 10 days, you can take the yantra with you. It is small enough and weighs about 2 lbs. We recommend keeping it in your carry-on luggage. It won’t be touched or mishandled if you explain that it is a spiritual item. Alternatively, a blood relative or your partner can take care of the yantra. If you do not have anyone to take care of it, cover it with an off-white 100% cotton or silk cloth while you are away.
You can keep the yantra in any room at home, as long as its sanctity is maintained. You can sleep in the same room as the yantra. It can be in the same room as the Devi Yantra or Sannidhi.
Since the beginning of 2021, the Bond of Grace yantra ceremony is offered online and may be offered more than once a year.
