Sadhguru - The Founder

Sadhguru The Founder

Sadhguru is a modern-day yogi and mystic who has dedicated his life for the wellbeing of all. An arresting blend
of profundity and pragmatism, his life and work serve as a reminder that yoga is not an esoteric discipline from an
outdated past, but a contemporary science, vitally relevant to our times.

Ranked amongst the fifty most influential people in India, and a New York Times bestselling author, Sadhguru has
been conferred the "Padma Vibhushan" by the Government of India in 2017, the highest annual civilian award in
India, accorded for exceptional and distinguished service.

Three decades ago, Sadhguru founded Isha Foundation, a non-profit human-service organization, with human
wellbeing as its core commitment, supported by over nine million volunteers in over 250 centers worldwide.
Sadhguru has initiated powerful yoga programs for human transformation and wellbeing, as well as various
outreach projects for uplifting rural India.

Founder's Message

"Left to myself I would like to only be a spiritual source to people because that is the thing I know best; but social realities cannot be ignored. If you want to talk spirituality, you have to first ensure that people are at least eating reasonably well and that there is some sense to their basic life format. If this basic work was done by society, the Guru would have the pleasure of just doing the spiritual part of the work. But when that basic work has not been done, unfortunately we will have to take up that work also. I am not some kind of a social reformer or something but when there is such an express human need around you, you cannot ignore it.

"Action for Rural Rejuvenation or ARR is an attempt to re-engineer social situations that have gone bad so that human beings can find a conducive atmosphere to blossom. The basic scope and aim of this outreach program is to make people’s life situations worthwhile so that they can find their full potential in whatever they are doing. This project is not just aimed at improving the economic conditions of people, though that is one of the major issues which needs to be handled. It is a way of raising the human spirit and inspiring human beings to stand up by themselves."
