Sadhguru is often described as a contemporary spiritual leader, since he belongs to no
particular tradition and incorporates aspects of yogic sciences that are most relevant for
modern-day life into his teachings and practices. His scientific methods for self-transformation
have universal appeal. Sadhguru’s insights into the mechanisms of life are an outcome of his
profound experience of the Self, and serve as a guide to exploring the deeper dimensions of
life. His life and work serve as reminders that the inner science of yoga is not esoteric
philosophy from an outdated past, but is absolutely relevant and applicable to our lives today.
Sadhguru established the Isha Foundation, a volunteer-run international nonprofit organization
dedicated to cultivating human potential. The Foundation is headquartered at Isha Yoga Center in
southern India and at Isha Institute of Inner-sciences in the United States. Under the guidance
of Sadhguru and driven by a sense of oneness, love, and a deep longing to reach out and share,
the Isha Foundation has also implemented several large-scale human service projects for rural
upliftment, education reform, environmental stewardship, as well as holistic and healthy living.
