Sadhguru, Through The Lens Of Raghu Rai

Updated: September 05, 2018 14:11 IST
Sadhguru's passion spills into everything. A fearless rebel from the start, his childhood was all about lone visits to the forest, snake-catching and class cutting. In youth, his blunt clarity on life made him an unofficial counselor to college mates. His love of adventure led him on motorcycle expeditions. He seems like an ancient visionary - from Adiyogi to eternity. Though most original, refreshing and a contemporary thinker - as he says "because I am not educated" - Sadhguru is embedded in deep rituals of yogic and meditative practices. He whispers of several births to have visited this planet.

The Guru Advantage: When I met Sadhguru that morning, he asked, "What would you like me to do?" Since it was a strong sunny day - not so good for photography - I said, "Sadhguru, get me some dark clouds." He laughed and said "I wish you had told me earlier". That evening, beautifully formed clouds started floating behind Sadhguru. That's the Guru advantage - can organise anything!

Ducati - one of the motorbikes Sadhguru likes to ride. Perhaps a memory of his youthful days, but this time under the shadow of Adiyogi.

The Sound of Music: Sadhguru says "I simply dance - not because of any music, but because I found the rhythm of life within myself." Here, with Isha's own musicians setting the beat, Sadhguru, the poet and eternal dancer, couldn't help himself.

Visual Poetry - the stillness of the Eternal Dancer: Sadhguru said, "Don't miss this one," on seeing this photo. Yes, don't miss Sadhguru's mystical smile that mirrors Adiyogi's smile in the background! Look at the monks - they certainly know they're on to something.

Frisbee, table-tennis and the intense discipline of golf reflects both the sportsmanship and the powerful energy of Sadhguru.
