Sadhguru on Post every Wednessday

By Sharmila S
Dear Ishas,
We are excited to announce that Sadhguru will be writing to us every Wednesday on the Isha Foundation website. Through 'Sadhguru Spot,' he will share his latest musings on life, people, places and things from wherever he may be traveling at the moment. The direct link is: http://www.ishafoundation.org/sadhguru-spot
You can check the site every Wednesday for Sadhguru's latest weekly post.

Here this week Post

Wednesday, 28 Apr 2010


Just could not stay away from all of you, so decided to create this spot. This is an effort to keep you informed and current with the few happenings around me. After Inner Engineering Intensive in LA, and a wonderful drive to San Francisco for a hectic round of meetings, well, I am sort of resolved about not taking flights within the USA unless it is more than 16 hours drive or am very pressed for time. Just tired of ‘take your shoes off’, etc. This ‘take your shoes off’ started after the attempted shoe bomb. Did you hear of the undie bomb on a flight that was coming into Detroit? That’s it… I anyway like driving and above all, it’s always a joy for me to watch different types of terrain and people. So driving is not a punishment but a joy.


This week at iii (Isha Institute of Inner-sciences) and the Bhava Spandana blow-out have all been very moving. A lot of activity in iii in preparation for Anaadhi. Here a sturdy band of American seekers are preparing for a time of their life. Very touching to see the dedication and love with which everything here is happening.

Love and Blessings

KAILASH MANASAROVAR YATRATo see the grandeur of a mountain one must keep one's distance; to understand its form one must move around it; to experience its moods one must see it at sunrise and at sunset. But to truly know it, one must jorurney the mountain with a Master, an Enlightened Being.Legend according to Tibetan tradition has it, that whenever a certain number of realized beings gather in this location, Gautama Buddha phiysically manifests himself. Sadhguru offers the pilgrim the rare privilege to understand with him the beauty and sacredness of Mt. Kailash. Guided and enveloped by intense meditation processes and satsangs, the seeker can feel the power of these sacred mountains and the saints who reside in them, thus unraveling the forces of life and our own ulitimate potential.*For further information, please contact: 9488111333/555/777 E-mail: kailash@ishafoundation.org
