Sadhguru: More than a Life



More than a Life is the extraordinary 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.
It seeks to re-create the life journey of a man who combines rationality with mysticism, irreverence with compassion, ancient wisdom with a provocatively contemporary outlook and a deep knowledge of the self with a contagious love of life.

Drawing upon extended conversations with Sadhguru, interviews with Isha colleagues and fellow meditators, poet Arundhathi Subramaniam presents an evocative portrait of a contemporary mystic and guru - a man who seems to pack the intensity and adventure of several lifetimes into a single one.

“The thirst to be boundless is not created by you; it is just life longing for itself.” - Sadhguru

More than a Life - Sadhguru

This book gives an honest account of the life of Sadhguru from early childhood until the year 2010. The author writes without fear and favour about Sadhguru's colourful if not wild childhood, a rather rebellious adolescence, his family and his enlightenment as a yogi and mystic.

For many years, my ideas of Hinduism is only limited to the notions that it is an ancient religion, idol worship and erotic figures on the Hindu temple. Somehow Sadhguru has introduced and reinterpreted Hinduism to a whole new level. Even though I have difficulty accept concept such as reincarnation , I am inspired by his words of wisdom such as :

"Those who believe God's up there, they walk aggressively, because this planet is not so valuable to them: they think they're going to heaven anyway." :
" Peace is not the ultimate attainment of life, but the very foundation of life, the birthright of all human beings."
Is Sadhguru trying to tell us that this is the source of Middle East's conflicts?

"The source of happiness is inside of you. Either you know how to manage your inner climate or you don't. That's all."

Sadhguru is not a traditional yogi that one would think who is always meditating in a cave or mountain, he also enjoys fast cars and play hockey.

Sadhguru deserves a Nobel Prize for his works done in India in particular and the world in general. May be he does not need it , as he had always said he only wanted to touch as many lives as possible. Well, I am one of them whose life he has touched.
