About Inner Engineering Book

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Thought leader, visionary, philanthropist, mystic, and yogi Sadhguru presents Western readers with a time-tested path to achieving absolute well-being: the classical science of yoga.

“A loving invitation to live our best lives and a profound reassurance of why and how we can.”—Sir Ken Robinson, author of The Element, Finding Your Element, and Out of Our Minds: Learning to Be Creative

NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY SPIRITUALITY & HEALTH

The practice of hatha yoga, as we commonly know it, is but one of eight branches of the body of knowledge that is yoga. In fact, 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. Today, as the founder of Isha, an organization devoted to humanitarian causes, he lights the path for millions. The term guru, he notes, 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 book offers readers time-tested tools that are fresh, alive, and radiantly new. Inner Engineering presents a revolutionary way of thinking about our agency and our humanity and the opportunity to achieve nothing less than a life of joy.

Poem

Poem

Then I was a man

I only went up the hill

As I had time to kill

But kill I did all that was

Me and mine

With me and mine gone

Lost all my skill and will

Here I am an empty vessel

Enslaved to the Devine will

And infinite skill

Self-transformation is achieved not by morals or ethics or attitudinal or behavioral changes, but by experiencing the limitless nature of who we are.

Understanding boundarylessness is the way to save this earth. Most of our problems are due to our identification with our physical body & mind.

Who am I?

Who am I?

We are innately limitless. This is a dimensional shift in the way we perceive & experience life. We are not our body, we are not our mind, but we are the ultimate intelligence of nature. Yoga is the path to achieve this transformation. Yoga is a way of re-creating the body to become boundaryless. We are all seeking to become infinite. 

Boundaries of ideology, caste, creed or religion only make us smaller, defensive & burdensome. But if there is no boundary there is no burden.

How to write our destiny?

How to write our destiny?

If you have mastery over your physical body, 15-20% of your life and destiny is in your hands. If you have mastery over your mind, 50 to 60% of your life & destiny is in your hands. If you have mastery over your life energies a 100% of your life & destiny will be in your hands.

Practice boundarylessness

Practice boundarylessness

Sit for a few minutes in front of a plant or tree. Remind yourself that you are inhaling what the tree is exhaling & exhaling what the tree is inhaling. Establish a psychological connection with tree. After few days you will start connecting with everything in nature connected with you.

SECRET to Right Thoughts,Feelings or Actions.

SECRET to Right Thoughts,Feelings or Actions.

Every thought, good or bad.

Any Feelings, pleasant or unpleasant, is a result of chemical reaction.

Do not try to think right or do the right action, to feel good.

Just learn to create, the right kind of chemistry within you.

'INNER ENGINEER' yourself.

First be joyful, then brain works better, and success may happen as a consequence.

Be you with your present

extraordinary transformative power of this single word- RESPONSIBILITY

You are responsible for all that you are and all that you are not, all that may happen to you and all that may not happen to you.

1. It is becoming the norm in the world that growth happens only painfully.It can also happen blissfully , but that is when the both the body and mind have been prepared.

2. In life , there is no 'this' and 'that' there is only 'this' and 'this'. This means everything is here and now.

3. Love is not something you do, it is just the way you are.

I am, therefore I think.

I am, therefore I think.

You are not your mind, neither your body. De-couple your sense of identity from how you look, how you talk, how you feel or think about things. Your emotions and thoughts are both side of the same coin which is your mind. Your role is to create a gap, see your mind from a distance. Understand that between any external stimulus and your response, you have a choice.

2

Be the transformation you want see in the world

The only solution for all the ills that plague humanity is self-transformation.

Self-transformation is not incremental self-improvement. Self-transformation is achieved not by morals or ethics or attitudinal or behavioral changes, but by experiencing the limitless nature of who we are. Self-transformation means nothing of the old remains. It is a dimensional shift in the way you perceive and experience life.

I vs me

Win yourself and the universe will surrender,though hackneyed but true.When you constantly challenge yourself you are actually engineering a human genius.
