About Sadhguru

Jaggi Vasudev (Known as Sadhguru) is an Indian yogi and author. In 1992, Vasudev established Isha Foundation, which has been involved in various activities in the field of spirituality, education, and the environment. The organization has been subject to mixed reception. ( 1)

Sadhguru’s ability to shape language into a tool towards self-realization has unveiled the deeper intricacies of both the human and the larger cosmos. His books and DVDs offer life-altering perspectives and a taste of existence the way it is.

In his book Inner Engineering: A Yogi’s Guide to Joy Sadhguru explains, the term guru means, “Dispeller of darkness, someone who opens the door for you. As a guru, I have no doctrine to teach, no philosophy to impart, no belief to propagate. And that is because the only solution for all the ills that plague humanity is self-transformation. Self-transformation means that nothing of the old remains. It is a dimensional shift in the way you perceive and experience life.”

Sadhguru Motivational Quotes and Sayings

Sadhguru

When pain, misery, or anger happen, it is time to look within you, not around you.

Sadhguru

The planet is spinning on time: not a small event. All the galaxies are managing fine; the whole cosmos is doing great. But you have one nasty little thought crawling through your head, and it is a bad day! The problem is you are living in a psychological space that bears no connection with reality. And you are insecure, because it can collapse at any moment.

Sadhguru

If you think you are big, you become small. If you know you are nothing, you become unlimited. That’s the beauty of being a human being.

Sadhguru

Everything that ever happened to you, you experienced right within you. Light and darkness, pain and pleasure, agony and ecstasy — all of it happened within you. If someone touches your hand right now, you may think you are experiencing their hand, but the fact of the matter is you are only experiencing the sensations in your own hand. The whole experience is contained within. All human experience is one hundred percent self-created.

Sadhguru

Learning to listen is the essence of intelligent living.

The more you try to be special, the more you get hurt. Just be, just melt and become part of the wind around you, the earth around you, become a part of everything. You’re here only for a while. At least when you’re in a place like this, where nobody is going to trample on you, let your defenses down.

Sadhguru

Confidence and stupidity are a very dangerous combination, but they generally go together.

When you have that, you dream of this and when you have this, you dream of that. Maybe you call it romantic, but it’s just plain stupidity. It destroys life.
