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.

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 consistent, ancient and contemporary, Inner Engineering is a loving invitation to live our best lives and a profound reassurance of why and how we can.”—Sir Ken Robinson, author of The Element, Finding Your Element, and Out of Our Minds: Learning to Be Creative

“I am inspired by Sadhguru’s capacity for joy, his exuberance for life, and the depth and breadth of his curiosity and knowledge. His book is filled with moments of wonder, awe, and intellectual challenge. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in self-transformation.”—Mark Hyman, M.D., director, Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, and New York Times bestselling author

“Inner Engineering is a fascinating read of Sadhguru’s insights and his teachings. If you are ready, it is a tool to help awaken your own inner intelligence, the ultimate and supreme genius that mirrors the wisdom of the cosmos.”—Deepak Chopra

Yesterday I cut two oranges to juice for my morning smoothie. As I was juicing one of them, I heard myself say, “This orange is BAD. It’s so dry.”

Well conceived, fluidly written and easy to read, with a few elements which stretch belief

Although I’ve ready many books throughout my life this is the first book I’m writing a review for. Thought provoking and inspirational, this book resonates with me like no other. I’ve read many books by authors such as Eckharte Tolle, Osho, Jiddu Krishnamurti, Ramana Maharishi, etc however none of them put it as simply as Sadhguru does in this book. Every time I’m going through a tough phase or I’m feeling down I pick up this book and start reading it. Every passage, every sentence, every word has been crafted carefully – just reading the book is a great joy! Sadhguru is an unbelievable man, his perception of life and what it means to be human is incredible. He is a buddha of modern times and truly a dispeller of darkness (The word guru means dispeller of darkness). I’ve taken most of his meditation and yoga courses and I can assure you they are truly transformative. If only they taught this to every child in school, we would be living in a totally different world.

Take what you like from this book and use it. Use it in your own life. You will see when you start to look at everything for what it is, not what you assume it is. Life becomes easier all on its own. In subtle ways it happens. We are meant to experience all emotion, but joy is the one that seems to underlay all. Sometimes maybe we get caught up in what we assume we should be. We feel stuck in a place that is not seeing joy. May I suggest, read his words. You will laugh at his jokes you will find joy in his words. We were not born with a manual on life. I am certain there are words that you will find helpful. Follow Sadhguru’s teachings and you will see some changes immediately in your own joy. But as you grow into your own true self so many things change.

Phenomenal – If you wish to transform yourself and life in any way – this is the book to read.

This book is an absolute treasure. It has enhanced my understanding of life and Shambhavi on an even greater level than I originally understood. No doubt the next time I read it – it will again open me up to other levels of experience.

There are some things that you intuitively know are right, this book is one of them. It reads like a conversation you are having with someone you have the utmost respect for. Can’t wait to keep reading but then again I don’t want it to end.🙏

Cracking the code to life

I’ve always wondered if there was source code to life that I can modify and achieve the results I want. This book is the first I came across that takes a more first principles approach to life issues. It’s method of exposition is scientific and lucid yet not dry, although some things may seem incredulous at first. The methods taught here are emprical and experiential, meaning that you would have to practice it (like performing an experiment in a lab) to actually make sure if what’s taught really works. I can say for myself that it certainly works extremely well! There may be times when I fall off the wagon, but I keep this book to get me back on track. Because life happens every moment, so you need to engineer it the right way constantly.
