Publisher's Summary

Achieve absolute well-being with the classical science of yoga

The practice of what is commonly known as hatha yoga is but one of eight branches of the body of knowledge that is yoga. 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.

Teachings and tools for a life of joy

As Sadhguru explains, the term guru 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 audiobook offers you time-tested tools that are fresh, alive, and radiantly new. Inner Engineering presents a revolutionary way of thinking about our humanity and the opportunity to achieve nothing less than a life of joy.

Sales pitch for Kriya Yoga Sadhguru style

The book re-iterates and elaborates on fundamentals of Yoga, with a personal touch from Sadhguru. His stories and jokes are great, and listening to the audio book was enjoyable. There are some good exercises in the book for meditation and sadhguru's methods but the book ends of with wanting the user to look further into Sadhguru's services.

Excellent

His voice is not calm but very to the point and almost funny at times. He certainly breaks the mold of the classic new age spiritualist. He’s different not scared to tell it as it is. It’s practical and incredibly inspiring.
No idea what Yoga really was until now. So many dimensions.

ADD TO BUCKET LIST...better than the book...

Reading the book must be fantastic also, but I felt even more "into" Inner Engineering listening to Sadhguru narrate. I feel everyone should give this a listen regardless of personal belief in God, science, life, spirituality etc. This guide delivered far more than my expectation and I can imagine it doing the same for others.

A Profound Exploration of Life!!!

Any additional comments?

Sadhguru is a yogi and mystic with a deep understanding and realization of the nature of creation. His insightful perspective challenges us to look at life in ways that break through our conditioned views, while offering a scientific approach and technology for transforming ourselves into our highest possibility.

I am an engineer by profession and when I first heard the term "Inner Engineering" I thought it sounded like a stretch to apply the term "engineering" to aspects of life that are internal, experiential and subjective... but I was a mistaken. My initial perspective was coming from a limited understanding and ignorance of the profound depth of the ancient science that was being explored and offered by Sadhguru.

In this book Sadhguru begins by sharing his story of deep experiential realization of life, and how that experience has transformed him and everything he has done ever since. Utilizing all aspects of who we are (body, mind, emotion and energy) and their direct connection, he offers technology and methods to develop and transform ourselves into our highest possibilities.

The best book for people who wants to be spiritual

Narration by Sadhguru was the best part of the audible. I read this book multiple times but listening through Sadhguru was the best.

A doorway to incredible adventure & self-discovery

What did you love best about Inner Engineering?

This audio book has become a companion and roadmap for me. It's opened up doors to new possibilities and enhanced my capabilities in a way I would not have imagined; offering a way out from the confines of conclusions, a chance to re-look at everything around us to the very air we breathe; showing that the outer workings are no different from the workings within, it is a doorway to incredible adventure and self-discovery that requires nothing from the external.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Inner Engineering?

Every chapter has something invaluable that you can take away from and use right there.

Have you listened to any of Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes I have. Sadhguru is one of the most poignant speakers I've ever heard on any given topic; the kind of clarity, wit, humor, precision and resonating truth with which he answers any question thrown at him is remarkable and catches my attention every time. When it came to hearing this audio book, it wasn't in the usual way I hear Sadhguru on youtube, because everywhere captured in every video, he is rapid fire on the spot and here, he too was reading the book for the sake of making an audio book. After a chapter or so, I was immediately accustomed to his reading style, tone and tempo and was hooked.

What did you learn from Inner Engineering that you would use in your daily life?

One needs to go about this book on their own in order for it to become live and transformational. There is something to take away at the end of each chapter and 'sadhana' offered that I have already incorporated.

Any additional comments?

After what I've experienced and the journey it has led me on, this is like one of those once in a life possibilities or doorways, if you somehow walk through it, you could look back and say it was so simple, but it's so simple you could miss it too. One must walk through it and make the journey. It's an adventure inward and every moment once embarked is of great story and suspense. Happy Journey's to one and all. May it lead you to the source.

Source of inspiration to walk the spiritual path.

this book has a lot of substance to it. immense value it contains. read by the enlightened one, rare happening. so many questions answered, many myths debunked, said in a very understandable way. there is less room for interpretation. better than reading the book yourself. highly recommended :)

Too many stories and not much practical use

I was hoping the book would provide more techniques or practices that one can do and provide guidance on what to to expect after you implement those practices. But I was disappointed, the book does provide some high level theory and couple for techniques but nothing concrete..too much vapor.

Listening as an audiobook was great though, Sadhguru’s style of taking keeps you engaged.

Worth

I really enjoyed this. I plan to go back to this hopefully within a couple of months. Easily can you re-read or listen to this and find something new everytime. Listening to suddhaguru in general is just grounding.
