The thirst to be boundless is not created by you; it is just life longing for itself. Sadhguru This is the extraordinary story of Sadhguru a young agnostic who turned yogi, a wild motorcyclist who turned mystic, a sceptic who turned spiritual guide. The book seeks to re-create the life journey of a man who combines rationality with mysticism, irreverence with compassion, ancient wisdom with a provocatively contemporary outlook and a deep knowledge of the self with a contagious love of life. Satguru is equally at home in a satsangh in rural Tamil Nadu as at the World Economic Forum in Davos. In his early years, Jaggi Vasudev (or Sadhguru as he is now known) was a chronic truant, a boisterous prankster, and later a lover of motorbikes and fast cars. It is evident that the same urgency, passion and vitality echo in his spiritual pursuits to this day, from his creation of the historic Dhyanalinga the mission of three lifetimes to his approach as a guru. In Sadhguru s view, faith and reason, spirituality and science, the sacred and the material, cannot be divided into easy binaries. He sees people as spiritual beings dabbling with the material rather than the reverse , and liberation as the fundamental longing in every form of life. Truth for him is a living experience instead of a destination, a conclusion, or a matter of metaphysical speculation. Drawing upon extended conversations with Sadhguru, interviews with Isha colleagues and fellow meditators, poet Arundhathi Subramaniam presents an evocative portrait of a contemporary mystic and guru a man who seems to pack the intensity and adventure of several lifetimes into a single one.

Arundhathi Subramaniam is the author of three books of poetry, most recently Where I Live: New and Selected Poems. She has written a prose work, The Book of Buddha, and co-edited an anthology of contemporary Indian love poetry in English, Confronting Love. She describes herself as a wondering, protesting, but committed Isha yoga practitioner and perhaps more of a devotee than she lets on.
