A Taste of Well Being Sadhguru s Insights for Your Gastronomics Excerpt :

In an era where a great variety of cuisines are just a restaurant away, it has become difficult to choose what to eat. Food products labelled 'healthy' one day are abruptly dismissed as 'lethal' the very next, while 'celebrity diets' are trashed by nutritionists. So what is the correct diet for your body? The answer lies within. In the Yogic tradition, food is alive, with a prana of its own. When consumed, the quality of the food influences the qualities of your body and mind. In A Taste of Well-Being, you will find recipes that have been perfected in the Isha Yoga Centre kitchen. Ranging from simple juices and salads to complete meals of grains, cereals and curries, the recipes are peppered with profound insights from Sadhguru on the process of eating and digestion. A book that will help you discover the potential that lies within you and the joy you can derive from the simple act of eating.

Inner Engineering Excerpt :

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - Thought leader, visionary, philanthropist, mystic, and yogi Sadhguru presents Western readers with a time-tested path to achieving absolute well-being: the classical science of yoga. NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY SPIRITUALITY & HEALTH The practice of hatha yoga, as we commonly know it, is but one of eight branches of the body of knowledge that is yoga. In fact, yoga is a sophisticated system of self-empowerment that is capable of harnessing and activating inner energies in such a way that your body and mind function at their optimal capacity. It is a means to create inner situations exactly the way you want them, turning you into the architect of your own joy. A yogi lives life in this expansive state, and in this transformative book Sadhguru tells the story of his own awakening, from a boy with an unusual affinity for the natural world to a young daredevil who crossed the Indian continent on his motorcycle. He relates the moment of his enlightenment on a mountaintop in southern India, where time stood still and he emerged radically changed. Today, as the founder of Isha, an organization devoted to humanitarian causes, he lights the path for millions. The term guru, he notes, 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." The wisdom distilled in this accessible, profound, and engaging book offers readers time-tested tools that are fresh, alive, and radiantly new. Inner Engineering presents a revolutionary way of thinking about our agency and our humanity and the opportunity to achieve nothing less than a life of joy. Praise for Sadhguru and Inner Engineering "Contrarian and consisten

Adiyogi Excerpt :

"Shiva does not spell religion. Shiva spells responsibility -- our ability to take our very life process in our hands.'' -- Sadhguru 'Shi-va' is 'that which is not', a primordial emptiness; Shiva is also the first-ever yogi, Adiyogi, the one who first perceived this emptiness. Adiyogi is symbol and myth, historic figure and living presence, creator and destroyer, outlaw and ascetic, cosmic dancer and passionate lover, all at once.A book like no other, this extraordinary document is a tribute to Shiva, the Adiyogi, by a living yogi; a chronicle of the progenitor of mysticism by a contemporary mystic. Here science and philosophy merge seamlessly, so do silence and sound, question and answer--to capture the unspeakable enigma of Adiyogi in a spellbinding wave of words and ideas that will leave one entranced, transformed.

Food Body eBook Excerpt :

Food has gotten complicated in the twenty-first century. Choosing our food is no longer about fruits, vegetables, grains and other such obvious ingredients. We now have to contend with calories (of two kinds no less – empty and non-empty), fat and protein content (protein also being of two kinds – protein from plants as opposed to protein from animals), confusing nutrition labels, and precise serving quantities. Added to this is the unruly flood of books, TV shows and nutrition experts proffering advice on the best kind of diet for you – Paleo diet, Vegan diet, Detox diet and so on so forth. This book is not meant to contribute much to that flood. Which is why it’s just 33 pages (with a lot of pictures, so you don’t have to do too much reading). There are tips and guidelines and a few nutritional facts, but the real essence of the book is epitomized by the title itself – Food Body. As Sadhguru says, “Food is about the body… To eat intelligently means to understand and supply the kind of fuel the body is designed for so that it can function at its best.” Food Body is a first step for you to tune into your body and figure out for yourself what suits you best. It opens up the opportunity to experience the true joy of eating, and the possibility for our food to be something more than just a means of physical sustenance. Interspersed with Sadhguru’s wisdom, the book looks at the kind of foods that the body is most comfortable with and explores the most appropriate ways of consuming such foods. It also touches on the latest research which reveals some shocking truths about foods we commonly consume. Look out for the “Did You Know?” and “Keep in Mind” sections which offer tips and interesting facts about food and ingredients, and be sure to try out the simple recipes at the end.

Life and Death in One Breath Excerpt :

For ages, most of humanity has placed “life” and “death” at two ends of the existential spectrum – favoring one, fearing the other and continuously floundering between the two. Only when someone who has consciously traversed between both life and death offers to articulate some aspects of it, does humanity get a glimpse of what lies beyond the horizon of its normal perception. With his extraordinary insights, coming from a profound inner experience, Sadhguru reveals that life and death are, in fact, two sides of the same coin. It is only by embracing both that we can break the shackles of our selfmade struggles and be set free. In his own words, he says: “Death is a cosmic joke. If you get the joke, when you fall on the other side, it will be wonderful. If you don’t get the joke, when you are here you fear the other side, and when the other side comes, you just don’t know what it is about. If death becomes a laughing matter in your life, life becomes an utterly effortless process – there is no need to restrain yourself in the process of life; you can live your life absolutely, totally.” “The distance between your life and death is just one breath, isn’t it?” – Sadhguru

A Guru Always Takes You for a Ride Excerpt :

"In the Presence of the Master" is a series of stirring and insightful discourses given by Sadhguru. In his willingness to share, Sadhguru offers glimpses of the profound wisdom that is otherwise accessible to enlightened beings only. Offering the rare possibility to go beyond all limitations, a veritable Guru takes the seeker on a mystical journey towards the ultimate liberation. Considering a Guru as someone who is supposed to guide the seeker in his quest for self-realization, the statement “A Guru always takes you for a Ride” may sound provocative, contradictory and unjust, at first sight; however, there are comprehensible, even compulsory reasons for it. In this volume, Sadhguru delivers rare insights into the Guru-shishya relationship.

Don t Polish Your Ignorance It May Shine Excerpt :

The persistent questions of seekers fill this book. It’s all here – the pain, the confusion, the raging gut-level thirst, all that it means to be human and alive and wanting. And through it all are the clear, strong, unwavering tones of a master who reminds us that the only thing that lies between the human and the divine, the finite and the boundless, the seeking and the finding, is choice. What does that choice entail? Not the acquisition of any path-breaking wisdom, but a determined refusal to strengthen one’s ignorance, to reinforce one’s deceptions, to ‘gold-plate one’s limitations’. The danger, Sadhguru tells us, does not lie in being in the dark – that can be dispelled for anyone who genuinely desires it – but in settling for an easy brilliance, a spurious radiance. The danger does not lie in seeking urgently, but in arriving cheaply. “Don’t polish your ignorance,” he warns aphoristically, unforgettably, recurrently in the course of this book. “It may shine.”
