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.

This is a great book for people wanting to make meaningful changes by doing simple activities everyday. Sadhguru explains in plain language why we are making life more complicated than it actually is and gives concrete steps (Sadhanas) to improve the way we live.

This is one life changing concept. The book makes us sees things that were plainly in front of us, too subtle and transparent for us to notice. This breaks the wall created by simple mind blocks and how enslaved we are to artificial cultures, in the name of freedom, that we forget the basics of our own well-being.

This book is an eye opener – constantly – every page of it has surprises that are simple yet profound. Was wondering how come I had never realized or observed many of the things he writes about, but I guess we are really too caught up in our “psychological” world to be seeing things the way they are. I will have to read it again to really get more of it. This book is not one to be read fast or lightly. There are profound insights that will take some contemplation and self searching.

I loved this book!

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.

Lowest bar for accessing real yoga on the planet.

Awesome. Lowest bar for accessing real yoga on the planet. I love the description of responsibility as a freedom rather than being a burden. Responsibility and the ability to respond. In your hart you can respond to everything. What you can really do for wellbeing is limited (can be increased) but the ability to respond with your heart is unlimited. And besides that realization the book is full of practical tools that can easily be implemented in every lifestyle to increase abilities and losing bulls***. And not to forget: with a big dosis of humor.
