Sadhguru has initiated large-scale ecological initiatives such as Rally for Rivers and Cauvery Calling, to revitalize India's severely depleted rivers.

As in Sadhguru’s own profound style, he calmly explains us how we have made our daily lifestyle troublesome due to the small races we become a part of. How people are confused among themselves and keep on establishing small happiness’s out of someone else’ loss is what Sadhguru tries to focus upon. Sadhguru talks about the importance of health, aligning the energies, being secular and sacred, how to keep children afresh and energized and free of any biases, the importance of women in society etc.
Later on, in the book, Sadhguru starts establishing the spiritual logic gradually in the minds of his readers. He starts mentioning the importance of Yoga, sitting at one place silently, the power of concentration, the role of a Guru in your life, the Genuity of prayer, how human has accumulated everything from this Earth and how we are nothing except the soul within us etc.
Sadhguru’s style of writing helps the reader to understand the concepts and logic at their own pace. Every chapter is not of more than 3-4 pages. He doesn’t use touch vocabulary to sound very intellectual or philosophical but keeps things simple. This is his specialty which has also made his videos and blogs popular. He starts any book describing the small acts we keep ourselves engaged in and then leaves a small conceptual benefit of yoga and meditation and ends the book there for you to think about yourself and life thereafter and think about being in peace rather than messing up your mind with unwanted stuffs. I give Flowers on the Path 3.25 stars out of 5 as it is just a normal book with not that much of an insight which can bring extreme changes in your life. But it shall surely sow the seeds of spirituality somewhere in the way you think.
The book is a bunch of articles by Sadhguru which provides insight into the realm of spirituality. The entire spiritual journey is being mapped out in terms of floral imagery. A human mind is compared to the flower while its stem is being considered similar to the spine. With a simple writing style, the author initiates a conversation with how we need spirituality in our quotidian lives. He directs towards the need for good parenting, of peace in our world regardless of conflicts, of the impact of rising intolerance, etc. He moves on to talk emphatically about the Yoga. Yogasana is deemed to be an ideal way of cleansing your soul. And the author charts a path for us to do it. Towards the end, we come to believe that what lies within is supreme and that we are our own masters.
The book is crisp and concise. Each chapter is short and precise enough to make its point. I liked how the author outs his point forward by not indulging into verbose prose. Rather he uses simple words, simple examples to make the indelible mark on his readers. Though the book is good for beginners, I didn't find it exceptionally well for seasoned readers.
In Your Life You'll Meet Many Temporary People Which Makes Their Impression Permanent, You Will Go Through Ups And Downs, You'll Be Beaten Up By Destiny, There Will Be Thorns Thrown Upon You By Many People. But In The End What Matters Is How Effortlessly, Smoothly And Joyously You Cross That Challenges..
In The Game Called Life, People Will Not Behave The Same As They Look Like In Front Of You, It's Upto You To Whom You Pay Heed And Give Attention. Negative People Attract Negative Vibes Whereas Positive People Reflects Positive Vibes. The More The Positive Vibes You Will Inhale, The More Blossom Will Your Garden Of Life Be,Where You'll See Different Varieties Of Flowers Not With Thorns On It But With Floral Scent On It..
Always Remember "Thorns Of Flowers Are Temporary But The Floral Scent Is Permanent" Likewise "Difficulties In Life Are Temporary But The Ill Effect Is Permanent"..
I always thought I knew everything about life. But after reading this book Sadguru peeled my definition for spirituality and Karma .
This book also bridged my questioning mind about Bhagavad Gita’s theories which was hard to accept in a simplistic manner and also helped me to organise my thoughts with clarity by eliminating my wrong beliefs .
This book with a book titled Don’t polish your ignorance, it may shine will be a real good combination .
Thanks to Sadguru for his work in simplifying many likes.
* The thought process which will enhance the quality of your life
* The perception you should create on the things around us which we call as a creation
*How to be in touch with the creator with a simple awareness thought
Overall a very good book which provides the way to create awareness through which life becomes a very good experience with so much balance and clarity
