Early life

Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev was born on 3 September 1957 in Mysore city of Karnataka state. His father Vasudev was a doctor and mother’s name was Susheela Vasudev. Vasudev was different from other children since childhood. He was very fond of nature. Often it used to disappear for a few days in the forest, where they would sit on the high tree and enjoy the winds and go into deep meditation spontaneously. When he returned home, his bag was full of snakes, which he has mastered in catching them. At the age of 11, Jaggi Vasudev started practicing yoga. His yoga teacher was Sri Raghavendra Rao, popularly known as Malladihalli Swami. He earned a bachelor’s degree in the English language from the University of Mysore.

Spiritual experience

Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudeva, at the age of 25, had unintentionally intensely intense self-realization, which changed the course of his life. One afternoon, Jaggi Vasudev climbed the Chamundi Hills in Mysore and sat on a rock. Then his eyes were fully opened. Suddenly, he felt beyond the body. He felt that he is not in his body, but has spread everywhere, in rocks, in trees, in the earth. By the time he returned to his senses, it was already evening. In the days that followed, Vasudeva once again experienced the same situation. He used to give up food and sleep for the next three or four days. This incident completely changed the way they live. Jaggi Vasudev decided to devote his entire life to sharing his experiences.

Yoga Camp

In 1983, he started his first yoga class in Mysore with seven colleagues. Dhyanalinga is said to have curative powers, which play an important role in human development and improvement. Being a meditation center, it is believed that after meditating, people get immense energy here. Here, people can stay meditating for as long as they want by sitting in the meditation center.

Over time, he traveled to Karnataka and Hyderabad and started organizing yoga classes. He was completely dependent on his poultry farm and even refused to take money from the people for the class. Their aim was that they used to donate money coming from colleagues, endemic charity on the last day of class. Later, on the basis of these early programs, the Isha Foundation was created.

Isha Yoga Center

In 1992, Guru and his followers also founded Isha Yoga Center and Ashram. The ashram is built on the Vellingiri hills at Pundi near Coimbatore. This ashram is spread over a vast land of about 150 acres, within which there is a huge Dhyanalinga 13 feet high. There is also a very religious temple in the ashram complex, whose construction work was completed in 1999. This powerful place built for internal development is dedicated to bringing the four main paths of yoga – knowledge, karma, action and devotion to the people. According to Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, in addition to the United States Yoga Center, he has a total of 25 Yoga Centers worldwide.

Isha Foundation

Isha Foundation, founded by Sadhguru, is a non-profit human service institute, dedicated to the physical, mental, and internal well-being of the people. It is run by more than two lakh fifty thousand volunteers. It is headquartered at Isha Yoga Center, Coimbatore. The Green Hands project is an environmental proposal of the Isha Foundation. Planting 16 crore trees across Tamil Nadu is the stated goal of the project. So far, in more than 1800 communities in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry under the Green Hands project, 82 lakh saplings have been organized by over 20 lakh people. The organization set a Guinness world record on 17 October 2006 by planting 8.52 lakh saplings together in 27 districts of Tamil Nadu. For its important work done for environmental protection, it was named Indira Gandhi of the year 2008 was awarded the Environment Award.

His foundation is spread across India as well as the United States, United Kingdom, Lebanon, Singapore, Canada, Malaysia, Uganda, China, Nepal and Australia. Along with this, many social and community developed activities are also organized through this foundation, in view of which they have also been given a special status in the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.

Social work

Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev has taken many social initiatives for human welfare. Jaggi Vasudev is also the founder of Project Green Hands (PGH). Action for Rural Rejuvenation (ARR) is an initiative of the Isha Foundation, whose main objective is to develop the health and quality of life of the rural poor. ARR was established in 2003 and wants to reach 70 million people in 54,000 villages in South India. In 2010 ARR has reached 7 million people in about 4200 villages. Along with this, ARR is also working to solve various problems related to farming faced by Indian farmers.

Apart from this, the institution is being run in the name of Isha Vidya. This is also a scheme run by Isha Foundation in the field of education. The main objective of this is to develop the level of education in rural India. Under this scheme, he has established 7 rural schools teaching 7000 children. Also, to help the economically weaker children, they have adopted 512 government schools and their goal is to adopt 3000 schools further.

In recognition of his contribution to spirituality on 25 January 2017, the Government of India has honored him with Padma Vibhushan.

Dhyanalinga Yoga Temple

Meditated by Sadhguru in 1999, Dhyan Linga is the first of its kind to have completed its status. Dhyanalinga, the essence of yoga science, is an eternal and unique shape of energy. With a height of 13 feet 9 inches, this Dhyanalinga is the largest mercury-based living linga in the world. It does not belong to any particular sect or creed, nor does it require any ritual, prayer or worship. Those who are deprived of the experience of meditation can also experience a deep state of meditation by sitting silently for only a few minutes in the Dhyanalinga temple. It has an all-religion pillar at its entrance, which has symbols of Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Jainism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Tao, Zoroastrianism, Zoroastrianism, Jewish and Shinto religion, inviting the whole of humanity above religious differences.
