Publisher's Summary

Achieve absolute well-being with the classical science of yoga

The practice of what is commonly known as hatha yoga is but one of eight branches of the body of knowledge that is yoga. 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.

Teachings and tools for a life of joy

As Sadhguru explains, the term guru 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 audiobook offers you time-tested tools that are fresh, alive, and radiantly new. Inner Engineering presents a revolutionary way of thinking about our humanity and the opportunity to achieve nothing less than a life of joy.

Disappointing

I was really looking forward to listening to this book, as I have watched many of Sadhguru's talks and always found his messages very inspiring. Unfortunately, I found pretty much the entire book to be empty, "talking around" the issues, and did not offer me anything in the way of new or practical information.

A true Yogi with honest ambition

Sadhguru is one of few, honest, genuine and effortful yogis taking great strides in bringing true Yoga to the west. Yoga is a word much abused in today’s world. Let Sadhguru show you a true path, a dedicated life, and give hope for a life lived in harmony.

A doorway to incredible adventure & self-discovery

What did you love best about Inner Engineering?

This audio book has become a companion and roadmap for me. It's opened up doors to new possibilities and enhanced my capabilities in a way I would not have imagined; offering a way out from the confines of conclusions, a chance to re-look at everything around us to the very air we breathe; showing that the outer workings are no different from the workings within, it is a doorway to incredible adventure and self-discovery that requires nothing from the external.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Inner Engineering?

Every chapter has something invaluable that you can take away from and use right there.

Have you listened to any of Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes I have. Sadhguru is one of the most poignant speakers I've ever heard on any given topic; the kind of clarity, wit, humor, precision and resonating truth with which he answers any question thrown at him is remarkable and catches my attention every time. When it came to hearing this audio book, it wasn't in the usual way I hear Sadhguru on youtube, because everywhere captured in every video, he is rapid fire on the spot and here, he too was reading the book for the sake of making an audio book. After a chapter or so, I was immediately accustomed to his reading style, tone and tempo and was hooked.

What did you learn from Inner Engineering that you would use in your daily life?

One needs to go about this book on their own in order for it to become live and transformational. There is something to take away at the end of each chapter and 'sadhana' offered that I have already incorporated.

Any additional comments?

After what I've experienced and the journey it has led me on, this is like one of those once in a life possibilities or doorways, if you somehow walk through it, you could look back and say it was so simple, but it's so simple you could miss it too. One must walk through it and make the journey. It's an adventure inward and every moment once embarked is of great story and suspense. Happy Journey's to one and all. May it lead you to the source.

A Profound Exploration of Life!!!

Any additional comments?

Sadhguru is a yogi and mystic with a deep understanding and realization of the nature of creation. His insightful perspective challenges us to look at life in ways that break through our conditioned views, while offering a scientific approach and technology for transforming ourselves into our highest possibility.

I am an engineer by profession and when I first heard the term "Inner Engineering" I thought it sounded like a stretch to apply the term "engineering" to aspects of life that are internal, experiential and subjective... but I was a mistaken. My initial perspective was coming from a limited understanding and ignorance of the profound depth of the ancient science that was being explored and offered by Sadhguru.

In this book Sadhguru begins by sharing his story of deep experiential realization of life, and how that experience has transformed him and everything he has done ever since. Utilizing all aspects of who we are (body, mind, emotion and energy) and their direct connection, he offers technology and methods to develop and transform ourselves into our highest possibilities.

love this guy

Whilst some of the concepts in the book are difficult to follow particularly when listening to audio,Sadhguru is an inspiration.He describes himself as contemporary and I would describe him as relevant.He makes spirituality fun against the dull backdrop of other dogmatic religions.

The book gave me thoughts from another culture and religion that were interesting but difficult to understand. Some useful practical advice for those who wish to explore yoga further.

Wow - Fantastic

This Book in my eyes is a 5 Star, but due to its repetition in several places, I have given it a 4 star.
All in all this book is a fundamental and informative piece of technology for those who are thirsty for spiritual knowledge and awareness.

A brilliant guide to the Yogic system

I've watched many of Sadhguru's videos on Youtube but this audiobook is on another level. There's infinite wisdom in his words and the way he explains certain concepts made me really 'get' some of these ideas and provided a much deeper understanding of what spirituality is (and is not).

For anyone already on this path or even just curious about spirituality/yoga, this is a must listen. Perfect for beginners or even more advanced practitioners. I'm on my second listen, it's one of those audiobooks that will never get old because there's so many 'aha' moments.

Authentic, a vivid listening experience.

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook,and would recommend as an listening experience that is very vivid and expansive in its content. All the more authentic because it is narrated by the author who draws upon his own visceral experiences!
I will be having another listen to this at some point.

The Path is Joy, Joy is The Path..............

My guru, Sadhguru!

What a great honour to listen to Sadhguru's book read by himself. He is so witty and he speaks with so much depth and calm. The chanting is a real plus! I highly recommend this book if you are seeking spiritual guidance from the best. Thank you!
