Mystic, Yogi and Founder, Isha Foundation

Sadhguru J. Vasudev

Equally at home trekking barefoot through the Himalayas as riding a motorcycle on the expressway, meeting with world leaders or speaking with farmers in rural communities, Sadhguru J. Vasudev is a contemporary mystic rooted as strongly in worldly and pragmatic matters as he is in inner experience and wisdom. He posts articles covering such topics as health and well-being, cultivating meaningful relationships, living joyfully, enhancing human consciousness and how to make this planet a better place to live.

Named one of India’s 50 most influential people, he has addressed prominent global forums on issues as diverse as socio-economic development, leadership and spirituality. He has served as delegate to the United Nations Millennium Peace Summit and the World Peace Congress and has been a special invitee to the World Economic Forum (2006-2009), the Australian Leadership Retreat (2006) and TED (2009).

His interviews are featured in The New York Times, BBC, Bloomberg, CNNI and CNBC. He is the author of over 50 books, the subject of four books and co-author of the Amazon bestseller “Midnights with the Mystic.” His public talks frequently draw crowds of over 300,000 people.

A yogi and visionary humanitarian of our times, Sadhguru works tirelessly towards the physical, mental and inner well-being of all. He was recently honored with the Indira Gandhi Award, India’s highest award for environmental work in recognition of his Project GreenHands initiative.

Sadhguru’s life and work serve as a reminder that the inner sciences are not esoteric philosophies from an outdated past but a contemporary science vitally relevant to our times.

Isha Foundation

Founded by Sadhguru, Isha Foundation is a non-religious, not-for-profit organization with over 200 centers worldwide and over one million volunteers.

Isha Foundation implements several large-scale human service projects. Action for Rural Rejeuvenation offers free medical care for under-served rural communities, Isha Vidhya provides schools to underprivileged children and Project GreenHands prevents and reverses environmental degradation. The Foundation’s efforts have earned it special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.

In 2006, Project GreenHands planted 856,000 trees with the help of over 250,000 volunteers in a single day, earning a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.
