Product description

Review

First things first! When Sadhguru uses the word 'Adiyogi', he can mean either 'that which is not', or Shiva, the first ever Yogi who perceived that emptiness experientially, and in Sadhguru's own experience, they are not separate and he travels seamlessly between these two definitions. Chronicles, some of which are in the form of myths, occupy a prominent position in this book and if one goes with the intellect to discern it, one will miss the point entirely. Miss Subramaniam, the co- author of the book, is there as a representative of a contemporary society where psychological realities reign supreme. Saying that, she has played her part really well, as she very briefly sketches her own personal journey from a once skeptic disciple to the one who now leans on the bedrock of trust laid out by her guru, atleast on spiritual matters, notwithstanding the occasional thought waves of onslaught instigated by her mind, like the majority of us. The last section of the book is in the form of a dialogue where Arundhathi asks Sadhguru regarding the need of this particular book, how the various categorisations of Adiyogi as a mythological, metaphysical,cosmological and existential figure adds up in the long run, and above all, how Sadhguru's own inner experiences helps in presenting this complex phenomenon before a person living in this age. Arundhathi's language and vocabulary deserves a special applause as she is comfortably placed in the good books of all dictionaries --By Agasthyan on 1 March 2017

This is a one of kind book, exploring Shiva in a unique way. My neighbour has already borrowed it to read. I had time only to read the first chapter will give a detailed review once my neighbour returns it. --By Subbu on 3 March 2017

The courier service was great. I am loving reading the book. It feels like another mystic musings...I cannot review the book as a whole yet but until now it is spellbinding experience for me. Arundhati Subramanayam has cleared all the kind of scepticism that can bud in one's mind. --By Amazon Customer on 2 March 2017 --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

"Shiva does not spell religion. Shiva spells responsibility -- our ability to take our very life process in our hands.''

 

-- Sadhguru

'Shi-va' is 'that which is not', a primordial emptiness; Shiva is also the first-ever yogi, Adiyogi, the one who first perceived this emptiness. Adiyogi is symbol and myth, historic figure and living presence, creator and destroyer, outlaw and ascetic, cosmic dancer and passionate lover, all at once.A book like no other, this extraordinary document is a tribute to Shiva, the Adiyogi, by a living yogi; a chronicle of the progenitor of mysticism by a contemporary mystic. Here science and philosophy merge seamlessly, so do silence and sound, question and answer--to capture the unspeakable enigma of Adiyogi in a spellbinding wave of words and ideas that will leave one entranced, transformed. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality Book, with better content
By Subhashis Chowdhury on 15 August 2018
I can't say anything about the content about the book, one should read it to experience it. Only thing is that, writer could have used simpler vocabularies. It destroys the flow of reading when you have to consult with Dictionary every now and then.
Built quality of the paperback book is very good. with little care you can easily preserve the book for generations to come. Fonts are easy to read but just a little bit small for weak eyes.

Sadhguru is a yogi, mystic and visionary. Named one of India’s 50 most influential people, Sadhguru’s work has touched the lives of millions worldwide through his transformational programs. Sadhguru has a unique ability to make the ancient yogic sciences relevant to contemporary minds. His approach does not ascribe to any belief system but offers methods for self-transformation that are both proven and powerful.

An internationally renowned speaker and author​ of the New York Times Bestseller Inner Engineering, A Yogi’s Guide to Joy, Sadhguru has been an influential voice at major global forums including the United Nations and the World Economic Forum, addressing issues as diverse as socioeconomic development, leadership and spirituality. He has also been invited to speak at leading educational institutions, including Oxford, London Business School, IMD, Stanford, Harvard, Yale, Wharton and MIT. In February 2017, Sadhguru was the recipient of the Padma Vibhushan Award by the Government of India, the highest annual civilian award, accorded for exceptional and distinguished service.

Dedicated to the physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing of humanity and gifted with utter clarity of perception, Sadhguru possesses a perspective on life that never fails to intrigue, challenge and surprise all those he encounters. Sadhguru established Isha Foundation, a non-profit, volunteer-run organization operating in more than 300 centers and supported by over 11 million volunteers worldwide. Through powerful yoga programs for inner transformation and inspiring social outreach initiatives, Isha Foundation has created a massive movement dedicated to addressing all aspects of human wellbeing.

Sadhguru has also initiated several projects for social revitalization, education and the environment through which millions of people have been given the means to overcome poverty, improve their quality of life and achieve community-based, sustainable development.

In the fall of 2017, Sadhguru initiated Rally For Rivers, a nationwide campaign aiming to implement sustainable and long-term policy changes to revitalize India’s severely depleted rivers, which found great support among India’s people and leadership. With over 162 Million individuals pledging their support, Rally for Rivers is the largest ecological movement in the world to date. In the fall of 2019, Sadhguru launched Cauvery Calling, a uniquely modelled project that focuses on enhancing farmer wealth while simultaneously impacting river flow and riverine ecosystems. It will enable farmers in the Cauvery basin spanning Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, to plant 2.42 billion trees.

In the United States, Isha Foundation is headquartered at the Isha Institute of Inner-sciences in the Cumberland Plateau of Tennessee, Isha Institute is established as infrastructure for raising human consciousness, and offers a variety of programs that provide methods for anyone to explore and experience the yogic science in its full depth.
