" En tant que guru, je n'ai ni doctrine à inculquer ni philosophie à enseigner, et pas plus de croyance à propager. L'unique solution à tous les maux qui tourmentent l'humanité réside dans la transformation de soi. "Grâce à ses enseignements, à la fois vivants, simples et éclairants, ainsi qu'à ses nombreux engagements pour la paix et l'éducation, Sadhguru est devenu l'un des guides spirituels les plus reconnus en Inde et dans le monde entier.
À travers le récit de son propre parcours - son enfance en Inde, ses premières expériences contemplatives, son enseignement de yogi - et en explorant les différents champs d'action de la pratique du yoga, Sadhguru nous entraîne, avec intelligence et sagesse, vers une meilleure connaissance de soi, de notre corps et des énergies qui le composent.
Un livre éblouissant, par l'un des plus grands maîtres yogis indiens, pour que la paix et la joie ne soient plus seulement un but à atteindre, mais le socle de notre vie.
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.
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.
