In this accessible and engaging book, Sadhguru presents a philosophical and practical introduction to the power and profundity of yoga – as he puts it, “not as acrobatics or metaphysics, but as an empirical science that makes you the master of your own destiny, the architect of your own inner bliss.

In short, this book is a road-map to joy — an invitation to each one of you to turn from an armchair reader into a dynamic participant on an ecstatic journey inward.”

INNER ENGINEERING presents a new way of thinking about our agency and our humanity and the opportunity to achieve nothing less than a life of joy.

“By any measure, Sadhguru is a remarkable man. For countless people around the world, he is a luminous spiritual guide. He is too a pragmatic social activist and compassionate campaigner for human rights, for universal education and for global peace and wellbeing. In this signature book, he sets out the personal experiences and deep insights that have transformed his own life and consciousness. More than that, he offers a practiced program for personal transformation that also draws from the venerable teachings of the yogic masters who continue to inspire him. Throughout the ages there have been no more insistent questions than who we are and what our purpose is in living at all. 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

“Inner Engineering is a fascinating read of Sadhguru’ s insights and his teaching. 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

“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, MD, Director, Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, and New York Times bestselling author

Sadhguru has dedicated himself to the elevation of the physical, mental, and spiritual well-being of all people. He is a sought-after speaker who has addressed leading international forums, including the World Peace Summit at the United Nations, the World Economic Forum, TED, and numerous universities.

Sadhguru belongs to no particular tradition and incorporates aspects of yogic sciences that are most relevant for modern-day life into his teachings and practices. His scientific methods for self-transformation have universal appeal. His life and work serve as reminders that the inner science of yoga is absolutely relevant and applicable to our lives today.

In 1992, Sadhguru established the Isha Foundation, an international, volunteer-run, nonprofit organization dedicated to addressing all aspects of human well-being. It is headquartered in the United States at the Isha Institute of Inner Sciences in Tennessee and in India at the Isha Yoga Center at the base of the Velliangiri Mountains, near Coimbatore. Supported by over three million volunteers worldwide, the Foundation’s activities range from large-scale humanitarian projects in the fields of public health, ecology, and education to yoga programs for the individual. The objective of all the Foundation’s activities is to empower the individual to realize the ultimate potential within, and to promote a global climate of inclusiveness and harmony.
