An arresting blend of profundity and pragmatism, his life and work serve as a reminder that inner sciences are not esoteric philosophies from an outdated past, but a contemporary science vitally relevant to our times.

From Personality to Presence

Though we often hear advice to “believe in yourself,” Sadhguru explains that by strengthening our personalities, we also cause our energies to become more rigid.
