Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev His Enlightenment and Isha Cult Empire "As It Is" ! PS: This post was originally published on 14-April-2011, on Google Blogger Site & was suspended from 15-May-2012 to 23-May-2012 after receiving defamation law suit/death threat from a Fanatical Isha Meditator towards the blogger. On 16-July-2013 based on a Legal Request, received by Google, this post has been permanently removed from Google Blogger Interface. PS: This post is a re-compilation of whatever has been written in the 149 pages of the Guruphiliac Forum and the blogger's own intuitive observations as an ex-volunteer from outside for 2 years, after undergoing immense mental trauma, because of SJV, his False Talks, which were heard, on World Space Satellite Radio, of the early days of Isha Foundation ! Note-1: This post is “Especially & Only” intended for those [very young people, from early teens till their 30's] who might, get captivated/carried away, by "Sri Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev's" [SJV] mesmerizing voice, logical talk, after reading his book Mystic's Musings, Encounter The Enlightened[Today's Isha Foundation is not the same as described in these 2 books and does not need any body’s help & support to stand on its own feet] and might abandon their families, give up their school/college education, careers, surrender their freedom, wealth, properties, even their intelligence to SJV & put their entire lives, in his hands & accept him, as the be all end all for them, in pursuit/search of so-called Enlightenment and to become a full time teacher/volunteer/monk for Isha Foundation at their ashram in India & Nashville, Tennessee, USA and may regret this later. If you are not, of this type, have a strong mind, will and can retain, your own individuality/originality, balance, even after doing Isha Yoga Programs, then this post, is not intended for you! You can read, my other blog posts, Life After Isha Yoga 1 & 2 in my blog Note-2: Whatever has been posted here, has no, relation with learning Yoga from Isha. Note-3:Readers, disciples, devotees, meditators of Sri Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, may kindly read this post, in an objective, non-fanatical, neutral position, as this Blogger was also like them and still is a devotee of sadhguru, as sadhguru acted as a Ritvik or representative of his own Guru and showed the blogger who his actual Guru was and what inner qualities this blogger possessed, which he himself was not aware of and the blogger has no anger, envy, hatred, enmity, prejudice towards Sri Jaggi Vasudev or towards Isha Foundation. If this post appears offensive to them then this Blogger begs their forgiveness beforehand ! This post, is not against SJV/Isha personally. At no point, is this blog intended, to shake the faith of others, in Sri Jaggi Vasudev or Isha Foundation! It may be viewed, as a constructive criticism and not as a fault finding exercise! Note-4: Due to some comments, which have been received, accusing the Blogger of having received cash, from ISKCON [International Society For Krishna Consciousness], to write this Blog, The Blogger clarifies that ISKCON, as of now, is an ex-gangsters run, debauched, perverted, criminal, corrupt, defunct, rudderless ship/society, a haven for rascals, completely in unchartered waters, having deviated wholesale, from the teachings/instructions, of its Founder and the blogger, has no connection, with the present ISKCON, It's Members, Gurus and Leaders. The Blogger only follows, the teachings of ISKCON Founder Acharya: Nitya Leela Pravishta, Om Vishnu Pada, Astottara Sat 108, His Divine Grace Srila A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada via his transcendental books, at his Army Fort. Wherever, ISKCON has been used, in this Blog, it is only, as a comparison, as a lineage based religious cult. For comparative purposes, any, other religious organization, which has a clear definition of "God" can be substituted. Readers are advised, that after reading this post, if they develop any interest, towards the various, spiritual organizations, referred to in this blog, they are requested to conduct, due diligence, of the history/present status, of that organization, before they decide, to involve with them. E-Mail Thursday, April 14, 2011 The Gospel of Isha Foundation and its Founder: False, Sadhguru Sri Jaggi Vasudev [SJV]! A brief History of False, Sadhguru Sri Jaggi Vasudev. “Sripada[=Sir] Jagadeesh [Jaggi] Vasudev”, appeared on this planet, on 03-September-1957 at mysore town, karnataka state, India and was the youngest of the 4 children of his parents. Father Senior Vasudeva was an ophthalmologist in Indian Railways, Mother Shrimati Susheela was a homemaker. His parents, wanted him, to become a doctor/engineer, but “Sri Jaggi Vasudev”, after schooling, underwent, one year of self-teaching, at the Mysore University, learnt various subjects and developed a keen interest towards, English Literature and graduated in the same subject. After this, as he wanted to travel, he got into, various businesses, like poultry farming, construction & was very successful and made a lot of money. “Sri Jaggi Vasudev” says, he has no tradition to back him and does not come, from any lineage of enlightened spiritual masters, or any disciplic succession type of system, like ISKCON or a Dashanami monastic order like Adi Sankaracharya. "Sri Jaggi Vasudev" being too much, influenced by the life of Lord Gautama Buddha, Buddhism, & Lord Buddha's Sangha concept, and wanting to replicate the same, in this modern age, had some, inborn aversion, contempt, prejudice & envy towards the written word, vedic traditions, scriptures, especially "philosophy" as a subject & had deliberately, avoided learning sanskrit, studying Indian Philosophy, even when, he had many chances to do so, in his life, but had read the works of some unknown European Philosophers like Dostoevsky, Camus, Kafka. Sadhguru means an uneducated guru, one who has no training in "sanskrit" the "vedas" "upanishads" or any school of philosophy. All "Sri Jaggi Vasudev" has, is his own inner life experience and he proudly confesses, that, he has till date, not read even the Bhagavad-Gita[Sacred Scripture of the Hindus] yet his clarity and knowing is even much better than what Lord Krishna spoke in the Gita. He states, that at the age of 25, on 23-Sep-1982, when he was sitting, at his place of birth, on top of one Chamundi Hill, he suddenly felt, the entire surroundings around him, have become a part of him and there is no him and no others. Everything had become him and in a moment 4 ½ hours had passed. He had nothing, to do with spirituality, no enlightenment till then and suddenly he finds that tears are flowing and his dress is wet. Till then, he had always felt, that duality was existence and he had no problems with that. Tears and adult Sri Jaggi Vasudev were just impossible, he says. Then again, the same experience, happened while he was sitting, on his dinner table, with members of his family and this time the same experience, with tears lasted for over 7 hours. His relatives, asked him, whether he had drunk alcohol and what he had done, that so much water, akin to river Ganges was flowing from his eyes. Then, when he was sitting, in his farm, he had the same experience and this time, it was 13 days. For 13 days, he simply sat, without food or water. Later, he found that he had been in samadhi and people were all around him, trying to touch his feet, asking solutions to their problems, and wanting to garland him and he just hated it. After this, his voice, his eyes, body shape, all changed drastically and he walked out of his poultry farming and construction business. Then, after nearly one year, of hanging out and not knowing, what he should do, suddenly three past life time’s[370 years] of memory descended on him in a flash. In the 1st SJV was "Bilva" who died very young by a snake bite. In his 2nd incarnation he was "Shiva Yogi". In the 3rd he was Sadhguru "Shri Brahma" who left his body through all the 7 chakras at the age of 42.And at present in his 4th appearance he is "Jaggi Vasudev". Since childhood "Sri Jaggi Vasudev" was a sworn rational atheist, an excessively, aristotelic logician, A non-believer and still does not accept, in the existence, of a personal-God, and had always made fun of temples, never having visited any, and when his parents, took him to the temple, once in 3 months, he had put, such difficult questions to them, which they could not answer, that they always left him with the shoe-keeper, paying the shoe-keeper some money to take care of him! At that time; “He had, hung outside temples and observed that, only miserable people were visiting temples, and those who were blissful and joyful by themselves stayed away from temples. He further noted that, those who came from temples, after meeting the creator, were always cursing him and the creation[shoe-keeper] later, as their footwear got stolen[which were not entrusted to the shoe-keeper to save money] from the temple gates, while as people, who came from restaurant’s after having Idli, Vada, Dosa [A south-indian snack meal] were far more blissful and happy". SJV had logically stated; "There are over 3 Million, Gods & Goddesses in India, but why is their fear in your hearts? Whatever Gods, you believe in, is simply based, on the social situation[eastern or western cultures] in which, you have been raised." "Whether your God has a beard or is clean shaven, has 4 hands or 8, 3 faces or 6, Lion Head, Elephant Head, Monkey Head, Horse Head, is simply, other people's[Grandma & Grandpa] stories & your imagination, which has nothing, to do with reality! We never thought, of our Gods possessing 8 legs, but even then, he could, never have surpassed a centipede[A poisonous reptile with 100 legs/fangs]." "Just because, you are a human being, you think "God" is a Human being. If you were a Big Buffalo, you would think "God" as a Giant Buffalo. People should abandon the idea, of thinking of God, as some white haired, golden beard, person, sitting in a peacock throne, in a far off heaven above the clouds, controlling the destinies of individuals." He had openly ridiculed, criticized the authenticity of tradition, scriptures & challenged people in speeches, stating ; "All those who believe in God, just for 1 day, leave your family & your business in God's hands, "All those who believe in God, take your rosary beads in your hands, chant your God's name and jump in front of a moving train and see what happens" All scriptures must be burnt, all so-called places of worship destroyed as they are "breeding dens" for "lethargic beggars in uniform" and so, using Logic had ruthlessly discouraged & destroyed the faith of people, in temples, deity worship, scriptures, rituals, invocations, stating; “Don’t think, that singing invocations Visalakshi, this akshi that akshi, Kailasha Vasa, Kashmir Vasa, Coimbatore Vasa & by visiting temples/churches/mosques, you will become spiritual; Looking at gods you will only hallucinate." Actually there is no God, no soul, no atma! The creation has come only from void, nothingness or darkness." "All these things are mere addresses he added!" But now suddenly, after three life times of memory, opening up, the only goal of his life, is to erect, consecrate, an ellipsoidal hindu form, called a "Shiva Linga" but this is special, unlike any other, called a "Dhyanalinga", not meant for worship, but only meant for the purpose of meditation. According to "Sri Jaggi Vasudev" a human body is also, similar to a dhyanalinga with seven chakras or energy centres, located from the anal point, to the top of head. Right from the inception, to planning, to consecration and energization everything descended in "Sri Jaggi Vasudev" simply from within because his Guru "Sri Palani Swami" had touched his forehead with his pointed-staff in his previous life as "Shiva Yogi". After this, "Sri Jaggi Vasudev" was gone, and self-enlightened/self-rechristened Sadhguru was born, as the story goes. Then, with sadhguru being born, he came to Coimbatore, a city, in tamil nadu state, india and spent 17 years, building good will, in society. Then he located the place, where in his previous life, as Sadhguru "Sri Brahma", he had shed his body, a place called velliangiri foothills, 30kms west of coimbatore and immediately, after seeing the 7th hill at that place, he knew that this was the place, where the dhyanalinga, had to be erected as per his Guru’s wish. All, those people, who had known Sadhguru, in his previous three life times, were readily waiting for him at velliangiri foothills, is what SJV says! Within 10 days, with the help of some kind people, like Mr Shanmuganathan who accepted his stories and gave Rs 8 Lakhs[$ 18,000] he had purchased 150 acres of land and registered it [where the Ashram in India is located now] which is situated in reserved forest in Nilagiri biosphere with wild animals. Those who learnt, that SJV, was going to erect a Temple, themselves could not believe it first! They stated; "You! Going to erect a Temple? Because of you, we stopped going to temples!" Unfortunately people were too naïve and simple to see through his long term cons & scheming! Unquote Then, with the help of his wife "Vijji", [who was SJV's sister, in his previous life time] and another married women "Bharathi" [who was sadhguru’s disciple, in previous life named "vibhuthi"]and in this life, he had made her, take birth in a particular womb, he claims, so by using His, His wife’s and His divine consort Bharathi’s life energies the seven energy chakras of the dhyanalinga would be activated and consecrated. Both these women had to come in this lifetime only to help & assist him towards the consecration of the Dhyanalinga! It was his wish, to use 14 people, to do the consecration, but it did not work out. Suddenly, when nearly 95% of the consecration was done, and in a week’s time, the whole process would have finished, by the end of Jan 1997, his young wife Vijji of 31 years of age, while meditating, felt the urge to dissolve herself and so, she came out of her meditation, went and removed her jewellery and left her body on 23rd Jan 1997. Sadhguru says that, it was Mahasamadhi, where one leaves his/her body by sweet will, with prior planning. However, as he burnt her body the next day, itself even without informing his Father-in-Law, who was about 380 kms away or without doing an autopsy, suspicions remain whether the death was natural or a murder by SJV. The following is the Indian Express Newspaper report as appearing on October 12, 1997 about police registering a case of murder by Jaggi Vasudev: Coimbatore, Oct, 11: Close on the heels of scandals relating to fake godmen getting exposed, yet another ashram from Coimbatore is in the limelight with Jaggi Vasudev aliash Jagadeesh of Isha Yoga ashram at Poondi near Coimbatore, being charged with the murder of his wife Viji alias Vijayakumari. A team of police personnel recently visited the premises of Isha Ashram at poondi and interrogated the inmates of the ashram. Godman Jaggi is away in the US. According to police, T. S. Ganganna of Bangalore (father of Viji) had preferred a complaint with the Bangalore Police suspecting foul play in the death of his daughter Viji. The complainant had stated that his daughter left him last on June 15, 1996. He reportedly received a message on January 23, 1997, from Jaggi Vasudev, stating that Viji was no more. Ganganna said that Jaggi Vasudev had hurriedly completed the cremation on Jan.24 even before they could rush from Bangalore, raising suspicion about the nature of death. He suspected death due to poisoning or strangulation. According to him, Jaggi Vasudev could have caused the death of Viji to facilitate his illicit relationship with yet another inmate of the ashram. Based on the complaint of Ganganna to the Bangalore City Police on Aug 12, a case was registered. The Bangalore City Police transferred it to the Coimbatore Rural Police. The Coimbatore Rural Police have registered a case against Jaggi Vasudev under Section 302 of IPC (murder) and IPC 201 (suppression of evidence). Later Isha Yoga Foundation has denied reports that Jaggi Vasudev had fled to USA to avoid investigation of ashram. Authorised Signatory of Ashram Kiran stated that Guruji had gone for giving lectures. ENS Despite the above, for the present, I will accept, that SJV is innocent and his wife died a natural death, as SJV says. Then after this, SJV, took on the role of his deceased wife, upon himself and with one body, he started playing 2 roles, which lead, to an immense drain on his system and within 3 ½ years, the dhyanalinga was consecrated and offered to the world, on 24-June-1999, the story goes. The Dhyanalinga's base, is rooted, in solidified mercury at room temperature claims SJV. SJV also claims, that many disembodied ghostly beings, came looking for dissolution, when the dhyanalinga consecration, was happening and for certain chakras, to be consecrated he trapped, certain ghostly beings and made them a part of dhyanalinga. After this, SJV had already planned, the moment the dhyanalinga was erected, he would leave his body, at the age of 42 in 1999, but he did some yogic healing methods like repair of nadis [Channels through which, life force or prana, flows into the energy body] fixing a broken ankle bone and simultaneously curing his asthma in an hour, Refer: and A celestial snake, visiting him in his bedroom a "King Cobra" and biting him, in the naval portion of his body, after which, life started flowing, in his once finished body and he is, still on life support and surviving because certain people[Divine consort Bharathi] out of their love and affection are doing, certain spiritual practices. These people, have put a copper anklet on his right foot, with a thread, which works as a wireless antenna, sending and receiving energies from their own bodies to SJV's, for him to live, otherwise, he could leave his body any-time, since SJV is the gateway to these people's Enlightenment and Liberation is another story that goes. Then even before this, since 1992, SJV had already started teaching Sahaja Sthithi yoga [8 & 13 days yoga programs] in tamil nadu and also in the USA, with his so-called non-religious, non-profit, non-political, public service, charitable organization, Isha Foundation run completely by volunteers. Then, to make people experience, the same chamundi hills oneness experience, he started offering, Inner Engineering Programs of 3/7 days, the Isha Flagship program, offering the distilled essence of yogic sciences. The Twists, Turns, Gas Lightings, Eccentricities, contradictions, paradoxes, lies, pretensions, deceptions, manipulations & multiple faces of False Sadhguru Sri Jaggi Vasudev and Isha Foundation ! 1-SJV, claims in the book "Mystics Musings" [For your free e-book please email the blogger] Everything written in this book is complete falsehood & fabricated] he never learnt yoga, from anybody and since the age of 12, yoga just happened for him. Even when, he went to school, he was always meditative and would teach, his schoolmates meditation even initiate them. Yet, one who knows yoga, since 12 years, in his enlightenment video says that, till the chamundi hills oneness experience, he had nothing to do with spirituality. History shows, that SJV, trained, under Sri Rishi Prabhakar in 1984-1986 who had lineage from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi & Werner Erhard. SJV was sent, by Sri Rishi Prabhakar, to start his centre in Coimbatore, where he left Sri Rishi Prabhakar and renamed himself Sadhguru and became popular. All his programs, like Bhava Spandana have leanings from Sri Rishi Prabhakar.

Refer comment, as mentioned in point # 7 below. Also SJV claimed, that the entire dome of the dhyanalinga temple, was designed by him, using his construction business experiences and executed by his Brahmachari [Monk] Engineers, yet later it was found, that it had been designed and built by French Auroville Earth Institute, Architects Satprem Maini and Karthikeyan. Refer: 39/#post779 Since when, did, Auroville designers, Satprem Maini & Karthikeyan who were disciples of Mother Mirra Alfassa of Sri Aurobindo Ashram become SJV's Brahmacharis? So SJV, even lies to overstate his achievements, and does not want to give credit, where it is due, to those who actually deserve. 2-SJV, like a couple of Johnny Do Gooders, in an overly, unwanted compassionate way, is operating, with a preconceived notion, that most of the people, are of the aristocratic/elite class, whose materialistic needs, have been fulfilled, very early in life and this has caused, enough nerve wrecking for them, to seek his offered spirituality. Anybody, who has not done, SJV's programs, is definitely missing out, on something like, blissfulness, unboundedness and how, we are all too stressed out, unhappy and we all have never tasted, real happiness without doing his programs. SJV, is very remorseful that; the majority of the humanity, spends their life-time, simply eating, sleeping, mating, procreating and dying, as though, people joining his cult, would somehow be exempt, from this process. He himself, has done, pretty much the 1st four all his life and is waiting for last one. SJV, was very upset by the fact, that, there was intense competition, among the present Guru's to gather followers & used to lament and state, that, most people carry, a dozen Guru's in their hand bags, having read the books, of so many so-called Guru's, even when, to set one's focus/vision, on just one, was so difficult in these times. He would like us to believe, that he is serving us, a much needed tonic, for the ailments, which even we did not know existed in us. SJV is the only "Guru" & "Way" 19:20 to 19:54 mts] to cross this Kali-Yuga [Iron Age]. All others are "False" and "Solace Peddlers" Something, like SJV & Isha, happens to people only once in 5000 years. SJV has already, made another assumption, once you make the mistake, of getting initiated from him and sitting with him, you are going all the way, with him, and he is only taking you, towards your ultimate liberation/dissolution. No U turns allowed! This is simply, to get people, to come to his programs, pay money by hook or crook and after getting hypnotised, mesmerized, brainwashed, surrender to him & become full time slaves in the form of monks/volunteers/donors. 3-SJV says, that philosophies are fantastic explanations, invented by out of work men, to explain something, which cannot be explained i.e. nature of the absolute truth. Isha Foundation is totally non-religious and has no leaning towards any particular belief, god, scripture or philosophy. He used to, make fun of people, stating, they were confusing "spirituality" with "philosophy" and, almost every one, on this planet was a "philosopher". For whatever nonsense, one was indulging themselves in, they had a "philosophy" for it. Yet, even a lay observer can tell, that Isha is based on buddhism, shaivism [Hindu Demigod Shiva] shaktism [Energy] and shakti-yoga philosophy[Refer Free E-book by Swami Sivananda "All about Hinduism" considering the way mahashivaratri, buddha poornima are celebrated in Isha and shoonya meditation offered. Then SJV asks, people, to dance to "Hare Krishna" mahamantra in bhava spandana program and asks brahmacharis to keep repeating “Om namo bhagavate vasudevaya” which is a mantra invoking vaishnava [A sub-branch of hinduism] God Krishna. Again, in order for the kriyas, to be effective, SJV asks people, to undergo Guru pooja training, invoking various vaishnava gods like "Narayana", and past sages like "Vashishta","Sankaracharya", "Parashara Muni". Now, “Hare Krishna Mahamantra”,“Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya”, “Narayana” are trademarks of traditional Religious cults like ISKCON. Is this Isha Non-Religious Foundation? 4-When, SJV, had started teaching inner-engineering programs, himself, when Isha Foundation was very new i.e. 1994-1997, he personally condemned, all forms of cd/dvd, television yoga, book yoga, stating; reading any "teachings" or "philosophies" or "scriptures" or gathering the guru's words & chalking out, one's own path from different books, will lead to no transformation and take one no-where. SJV, used to take great pride in publicly ridiculing, people, when questions like Brahman, past life, mind, karma, atma, soul was raised, and snubbed the questioner as to from where these ideas had come and what "atma" was the questioner talking about? He used to look at the soles of his feet & say, that to talk about things, which was not in one's experience was simply lying to oneself ! Only experience, in the form of Live transmission of Life Transforming Kriyas like Shambhavi Mahamudra, Bhava Spandana, & Samyama programs were the real lasting thing and for these Kriyas to work, personal initiation, by a physically present live Guru, in front of the participants, was of utmost essence 100%. Then after some time, he contradicted himself; thinking, I suppose, that if I teach like this, I can never reach many people and make a lot of money so some dilution is required. So others can teach & I can initiate people into the kriya, by a video disc, without myself being present physically. And the shambhavi mahamudra kriya, will work and be equally effective, if not better as before. Isha, was a silent revolution, for self-realization, spread by, just word of mouth. Now, 19 years down the line, everything has changed. All his talks, discourses have been printed/made in the form of books and dvd's, huge billboards advertisements/posters on vehicles have come up, competitors in the same business, who were condemned earlier, for teaching yoga on television, being bad for one’s health, on special invitation, have endorsed SJV & credited him with the title of 21st century Lord Shiva, tv-programs/interviews are being broadcasted and even an introductory inner engineering cd/online program has been made, a self-publicity False Biography has also been published and every three months a new book is being released. All this when he poeted once; "The gloriousness of the written word is but the excreta of the deluded mind" & "Silence is the only way". See, the unfolding of the False Guru Hoax! 5- Keeping point # 4 in mind and with the infancy of Isha Foundation, when SJV, had to get free labour, in the form of full time slaves[volunteers] or yoga teachers at Isha, he used to pretend and put on a sad sullen face, as if, he was tired, disgusted, disgruntled & finished with life and say, people are trying to add value to their lives by the clothes they wear, the educational qualifications that they possess, the visiting cards that they carry, the cars in which they travel, their jobs and have all become too thirsty for life and despite having so many problems they will only seek a better life next time. I quote from his book "Encounter The Enlightened" [For your free e-book please e-mail the blogger] pp # 32. To a question, as to why one should become spiritual and what is the difference between a spiritual person & A materialist? He says, "That a spiritual person is somebody who has everything within himself; he only begs for his food; but if he wants to earn that too, it is no big deal. He can earn that also." To promote his cult, in front of a large audience; SJV used to speak that people like Buddha never did intense hard work, and most of us were just over working ourselves, as if everybody was a born billionaire, implying that earning money for a living was a crime. He quoted; "If a drop of honey, were to be put on the floor, and the bottle placed, on the table, even an ant has higher intelligence to reach the bottle" ! "But the tragedy of mankind, is that, he/she has remained stuck with the few drops on the floor, concentrating too much on the peel[body] than the real fruit[self]" ! “All of you are deeply soaked, in enjoying the physicality of this world, which you think as solid reality, which modern science has proved it beyond doubt as "False" and still not an ounce has melted for you. All your activities are based on sense perception, and coming from outside from 5 sense organs, through which people are trying to become complete". "When you unconsciously seek the ultimate, it can make you go, through all the things in your life, like Job, Big Breakfast, Shopping Mall, Marriage, Money, Business & insatiable activity for 50-60 years which does not move you an inch and gets you nowhere." “You must really have a great endurance for all this!” "Either, you go through all this and realize it on your death bed, or you realize it when you are about to start it or when you are in it, when you have time on your hands." Refer pp # 99, Encounter the Enlightened Book, To a question as to What is a full & complete life/person? He says & I quote "If your inner nature is unbounded, your life is also unbounded. You can either sit, with your eyes closed and your life is complete, or you perform different actions and your life can be complete. When man has reached, a state, where within himself, he does not have the need to perform any action, and his actions are only, to the extent required for the external situation, then that man has become complete. Once a man has reached the state where he does not have the need within himself to perform any action, then that man is a complete person. This does not mean, that such a person, did not do anything in life! He did everything possible to experience/know life, but he is not somebody, because of his actions. Even without action he is the same! If somebody, wants his company, he will give, but others company is not needed for him to fulfil himself. Why have you been performing one action after another? It is towards fulfilment, isn't it? Refer pp#177 Encounter the enlightened book I quote; "Now this attachment to somebody is just a reflection of your own attachment to your own body. If there is no attachment to this body, you will have no attachment to anybody. I want you to put a hyphen between "any" & "body". If you're really not attached to this body you cannot be attached to anybody." "People try, to create a perfect life, based on the outward, but the actual quality of life was based on the inward." Spirituality was for turning inward to overcome compulsiveness ! He even said, to his disciples, in one video, "Luke you came early! If you tell anybody, in India, that you live in an ashram, the 1st question, people will ask, is what went, wrong in your life?" Like this, he portrayed, as if spirituality/yoga, was meant only for those, who were lethargy personified/escapists, wanting to break cots, as their occupation & spend their whole lives, on a couch having renounced everything! 6-With the above statements, pretence & logical talk; SJV succeeded, in the active recruitment of young men and women as Isha teachers, by wrecking marriages, breaking families, brainwash, mesmerism[This process continues unabated till this day] with many people [Girls as young as 13 years] giving up their school & college education, lucrative jobs, selling their houses[in some cases even violent force via hired goons was used] and donating everything, like 401 retirement savings, to the Isha cult and becoming his monks/teachers, after a rigorous grinding, of 4 years for their enlightenment process to accelerate. Refer Comments howComment=1282179012520#c4099519443152221991 After the Isha cult empire, was firmly established, with enough corpus and slaves, in just 2 years, he twisted the whole thing to his advantage. He started saying; Isn’t it a misnomer, the whole country has that spirituality is meant for those who want to avoid life. Why do you want to live here by avoiding life? Better to drop dead? This whole process of detachment is wrong, he said. Refer last paragraph of page 462 mystics musings book, "Now, if you think logically, it seems impossible that there is no difference between the Dhyanalinga and me. Even if you have experienced the Dhyanalinga in some way for a moment, it still sounds absolutely egoistic for me to say this; but really, there's no difference. If you don't like it, I can't help it. Slowly you will see, as the days pass, I won't be interested in keeping up any façade for anybody's sake. We have done enough of that in order to bring about the necessary goodwill and understanding into people so that they could become receptive enough. We don't have to continue doing that for a lifetime. Those who are too logical and whose ability to live life is very much on the surface may fall off. I don't want them to fall off, but they may, because I am too blunt. It's all right. This is how it is." Then he quoted "That a spiritual person, should not be against the concept of life, and become happy & settle with just his pongal-vada-coffee-vedanta[A snack meal & a certain school of philosophy]and his own liberation, but have more thirst for life, than a materialist and he himself, is not yet done, with life and one cannot make a distinction, between the 2[matter & spirit] as both are heads & tails of the same coin." He also said "That I wish to pursue & make rich people spiritual because they are the ones who are the most in inner turmoil." meaning wealthy upper class Americans/Indians/Europeans. I rest my case! It is obvious, that the cult that it truly is, is showing its true colors now, that they have a sizeable following. In the early days, the message was watered down, to make it easier to spread and recruit more people. The genuine Gautama Buddha, was in poverty by choice but I [SJV] being a False Buddha, can pursue the rich and their deep pockets and offer them mass enlightenment. Other than his family members, an assumption was made, in comparison to the Buddha, that Buddha took to the path of begging and asceticism, with very deep intelligence and that the majority of people, have no need of Job, marriage, own houses, wealth creation, children. So in order to attain Buddha Hood, simplicity, renunciation and monk-Hood[intense hard work of 20 hrs. a day for just 2 meals] was preached for others, yet the False Guru himself had/has an opulent lifestyle. Business class air travel, 2 annual trips to USA when it is too hot in India, golf playing, Land Rover travel, 5 star hotel stay, hand-gliding, helicopter-flying, BMW motorcycle rides, horse riding, scuba diving, bungee jumping, and even drinks potfuls of Folgers coffee, stops frequently at "STAR BUCKS" for his regular coffee fixes, like an addict and in the past ate Chicken. Refer: nse-at-velliyangiri.html When asked about this; He pointed to his stomach, laughing and said that since he was enlightened he could decaffeinate, anything. I was stunned, when in a himalayan trip, SJV, ordered fried egg-plant [Brinjal] dish for his volunteers. All these three items, are condemned as negative pranic substances in his Inner Engineering programs, stating that coffee intake can make, one's old age miserable! At present he himself consumes Sea-Food while at the same time is a “Champion for the cause of pure vegetarianism in the world!” He has even bought a Hummer[A sports Utility vehicle] for $ 80,000/- and a Beta R22 Helicopter costing $ 266,000/- for his personal use in India. Which previous Enlightened Master did all these things in the past? But till date, SJV’s own daughter of 22 years Radhe, has studied in the best of boarding schools like Rishi Valley & completed fine arts at Kalakshetra in Chennai. She herself, has never been initiated into the Isha yoga cult, as a monk or even from outside, or why she is not volunteering and helping her father, in his world-wide mass enlightenment/liberation business, while as girls of her same age, even younger, are working as slave teachers in Isha; remains a mystery to me? 7-Even though SJV, always tries to depict to the world that three things in world should never be commercialized; 1-Health-care, 2-Spirituality, 3-Education the exact opposite is happening at Isha Foundation. When listening to his discourses on world space satellite radio in Jan-2007, I remember, SJV saying, that he was travelling in rural Tamil Nadu with his friend who was a stockbroker/chartered accountant, when his friend commented, that he must have done some good deeds, because of which he was rich, and the rural people, would have been very sinful, because of which they were like that. To this SJV replied; "Please do not say like that." After some time, this stock broker, became a pauper and SJV lamented very sarcastically, that after doing his yoga programs, this stock broker, owed SJV money, which SJV would never get back, in this lifetime. The tone of SJV, itself conveyed, that he was a cut-throat business man, whose only goal of life, was to make money, using yoga & spirituality. This was later confirmed, as his birth caste is Chettiar [Vysya]. Chettiar's greed, for money, has no limits. A second example, comes in Mystics Musings Book, pp# 228-229, when he had eaten, gardinal sodium tablets to experience death, he had beforehand, donated all his money, $ 3, and after he survived it took a lot of threats and fist fights with his friends to get back ½ the amount. A third example, from the master himself, comes, in a discourse "The Trap of a Dream" 03:27 to 04:22 mts, where in his child-hood, his parents used to pay money, to the shoe-keeper, at the temple to look after him, had they paid him the money he would have stayed in one place. According to tradition, all the masters and scriptures agree that, for the spiritual seeker, the Guru disciple relationship, is the seeker's most significant and important relationship. It is not a relationship, to be entered into lightly, but only after great consideration by both. The seeker approaches the Guru and the Guru evaluates the seeker, to determine, if he will accept the seeker. However, in Isha it seems, the Guru's only method, of evaluating the seeker, is to determine, if the seeker has enough money, to pay him, for the teachings. Basically, SJV, or his volunteers, ask, if you can pay a certain amount of money or if you have some talent or ability, which they can exploit, in the form of volunteering for Isha, and in most cases both. Refer mment=1180364640000#c800050108880603070 And this amount is not small. It can be as high as $ 2000 & £ 2000 for a three day Inner Engineering Intensive Program[SJV conducted] in the USA and UK. If you can pay this much, you're in. If not, well you don't get to learn Yoga. The whole Guru disciple, relationship in Isha is only monetary! SJV, is supposed to be offering yoga as a experiential-science and not as a belief system, which is another falsehood, as his Inner Engineering is just a mix of different asanas [yogic-postures] and breathing techniques and A-U-M mantra chants, taken from past traditions and nothing new. He is not the inventor of yogic asanas but simply selling them as a packaged brand at heavy price but projects himself as Patanjali-The father of yogic sciences. 8- His Inner Engineering for 7 days, which has been taught, for the last so many years, might have made people more productive, less angry and irritable and more energetic, but as a way for Enlightenment it is too much far off. For some people his "Kriyas" have back-fired seriously. Enlightenment can happen, for only those, who take their longing and pitch, to such a level, where due to some life situation, they get so intense to know the truth, that either they know it, or they will kill themselves. SJV himself says, that, Buddha never sat or did long hour meditations. He sat under the Bodhi tree, and in an instant, he was enlightened. So SJV, going to offer, everyone, chamundi hills experience of blissfulness and oneness by shambhavi mahamudra is simply too much of a claim being made in order to get participants. The Following questions, regarding, SJV's wife, Vijji’s, death, remain unanswered even after 14 years! 9-Vijji literally, dropped dead from deep meditation, for no explainable reason, other than Maha Samadhi. She was a young, healthy woman of 31 years and literally dropped down dead. Her husband says she attained mahasamadhi and burns her body within 24 hours. I ponder: A- Was a physician present to certify the actual cause of her death? When did he tell the authorities about Vijji’s death? What does the death certificate say was the cause of death? B-SJV himself acknowledges, in mystics musings book that Vijji was not an accomplished yogi. Vijji was not known as an enlightened being when she was living. She did not give herself any honorific title like "Amma" or "Swamini" so how was maha samadhi accomplished by an unaccomplished yogi such as Vijji? Did SJV have some neutral spiritual authority pronounce the death as Mahasamadhi ? C- Knowing, that Vijji, was not an accomplished yogi, why would SJV involve her, in a process that was “enormously” risky, as described by SJV in mystics musings? That decision, would seriously endanger, the very purpose of SJV's incarnation in this lifetime, that being the consecration of the dhyanalinga. It seems only an accomplished, advanced yogi, would be able to assist with the consecration, not an amateur bank employee/home maker such as Vijji. D-After the consecration was completed; SJV had already planned, to leave his body, at a particular age, but he and his divine consort are still living, How could SJV & his divine consort Bharathi, only survive in the intense Vortex-Triangle of energy, that was created, while Vijji who was supposed to live long, is dead? E-I heard this in world space satellite radio, SJV said, that he purposely held people back, from enlightenment, because he could use them here, for now, and then let them go to enlightenment sometime in the future. Well, if that's true, then why didn't he hold Vijji back for one week? It would have been, to fulfil his Guru's dream! His sole reason, for incarnating in this lifetime was within one week of happening and she just checked out. Just like that! He couldn't hold her back, like he said, he holds other back! Then, after she's gone, he starts the process again, by energetically taking on Vijji's role and also doing his own role, in the consecration process. So, he was doing 2 of the 3 roles necessary for the consecration. And, by his account, switching from his energy to Vijji's energy, was destroying his physical and energy bodies and he was not sure if he would live through the process. This gruelling process, goes on for 7 months or so and, suddenly, when the police come to investigate the murder charges, SJV decides it's a good time, to go to the USA and lecture. Incredible! For a man, that is so single minded, in all he does and he decides to detour to the USA in the middle of the most significant project in existence up to this point. If he did, it is totally out of character for him. The story of dhyanalinga consecration, takes a new turn, after 14 years of Vijji’s Mahasamadhi, with the release of SJV’s biography “Sadhguru-More than a Life” in 2010, written by Ms Arundhati Subramanium, published by Penguin India Books. Here the story says; I quote “Jaggi claims, that in the previous lifetime, he and Vibhuthi (now divine consort Bharathi) carefully planned dhyanalinga, to the point, where even wombs were selected by them."Bharathi could have helped finish the process when Vijji was alive but was attending her children school annual day function." Even after she knew, that she was vibhuthi and had full knowledge, of past lives of her's, Jaggi's and Vijji's (Karma yatra as mentioned in mystics musings book page-433, 434, 452) she chose to attend a school function over dhyanalinga consecration. Unquote! The biography also states; That Vijji had never accepted SJV as her Guru and she was totally against the dhyanalinga temple erection and SJV's closeness with his divine consort Bharathi was creating too much emotional problems for Vijji. So the Following Points can be Summarized concerning the Dhyanalinga Consecration! 1st -Vijji leaves her body, by own sweet will, having planned her departure before and having fed everybody, by her own hands at the ashram, before she left her body while meditating and even after she went and removed her jewellery, came back, meditated, and then left which is mahasamadhi and SJV cannot hold her back and he burns her body in 24 hrs, without informing his father-in-law/daughter. Dhyanalinga consecration, is abandoned for another 2 years. 2nd - SJV, takes the role of his departed wife upon him and in the process his body is totally drained and shattered & he ages by 25-30 years [MM book page 435]. When the police, visit the ashram 7 months later, SJV with his fragile, drained and shattered health, aged 65, is in other part of the globe in USA for giving lectures. 3rd -When all the three were together, and the process could have been completed with Vijji alive in a week’s time, an insignificant event like attending a children school annual day function came in the way of such a huge project for which soul specific wombs had been selected in the previous incarnation of SJV as sadhguru Shri Brahma and disciple vibuthi taking birth as divine consort Bharathi [ Even after she had full knowledge of her’s, SJV’s and Vijji’s past life and the intensity of the project and her own role in the present life] for which SJV had to incarnate for the 4th time and a considerable amount of money had already been spent on the project. 4th -So it appears that, when SJV’s divine consort Bharathi was attending her children school annual day function, at this time both SJV and Vijji were meditating in the intense vortex of energy, so rather than 3 only 2 people were helping in the dhyanalinga consecration and Vijji couldn’t keep up as she was not an accomplished yogi and dropped dead which was the actual cause of her death. So now it clearly shows that SJV was directly/indirectly responsible for his wife's death having plotted & hatched the scheme with His Divine Consort Bharathi beforehand by purposefully making her abscond from the dhyanalinga consecration for a petty event. 5th -After the dhyanalinga is erected, SJV's, divine consort Bharathi divorces her husband after SJV's wife Vijji's death and starts living full time and has an opulent life style like SJV for herself at the ashram. She was and still is very rich and allegedly invested around 11 million dollars (50 crores) in Isha in it's infancy. The common factor between Jaggi and Bharathi was they both spoke Telugu while as Vijji only spoke kannada, was poor, emotional, and truthful. 6th -So the Triangle, completes itself in all 3 corners. Jaggi can sell his stories to others, but not to these two ladies. His wife Vijji, would become an uncomfortable presence, to Jaggi and oppose his greed for power & wealth. Bharathi is rich, secretive, spoke Telugu and ready to invest. He being a "Chettiar" Businessman made the obvious choice. His wife attained 'Mahasamadhi' and burned to ashes. Rest is history. With this, all the questions raised above from 9-A to 9-D are answered and the newspaper article published in 1997, holds true. When, SJV claims, of solidifying mercury at room temperature, three past enlightened life times, capability to; plant certain souls in particular wombs, choosing the very womb where one can be born if one practices his yoga, creating and bringing Lord Buddha in the form of energy webs, trapping celestial beings for consecration of dhyanalinga, even bringing his dissolved Guru back to do the dhyanalinga consecration, trapping people to become his disciples, having command over the entire creation via his ring finger; How is it, that with so much capabilities, he could not save his own wife, who left her body in meditation, while he is able to retain his own, by others[divine consort Bharathi] doing spiritual practices for him? How cum, what is possible for him, was not possible for her? The story of Vijji's Mahasamadhi, again seems suspect. Kindly see this Video at 01:58:00, where Indian movie actress, Ms Kiron Kher asks SJV about Vijji's death? Her question is connected to what Jaggi says in his book Mystic Musings? She asks him how Vijji dies and his explanation that she suddenly left the body? SJV goes into a lengthy ramble till the Isha Media department suddenly realizes that he may be saying something inconvenient. The Video is censored at 02:05:00 with a blurb that there is an issue with the video and it will resume at 02:07:30. I find it hard to believe that Isha which is so media savvy would screw up a recording like this. Soon after the next question is about breaking ties to family which again elicits a long rambling response. As he starts his explanation, which meanders through some very unconnected thoughts, he tries to laugh but his interviewer does not join in and looks quite grim. I am suspecting Anupam Kher knew his wife was going to ask this awkward question. You can tell from Anupam's body language that he is not entirely believing Jaggi. There are two cameras, going by the angles of the video. Did both of them fail at the same point? Quite a remarkable co-incidence. Anyway, he attributes her passing away to her already stated desire several months ago to die in this manner and her mistake of removing her ornaments which were holding her life within her physical body. Some Points can be summarized from the above Video. A) Obvious audio/video censorship. There are thousands of Jaggi videos without this ever happening in the past. Ironic that there are at least 3 videos recording during this taping (watch the video placements) and all 3 gone at the same time and in different ways? The only thing that would affect all 3 at the same time would be failed power supply which isn't what happened. There was still audio and video, just sliced/chopped up. B) He gives an example of another yogi Nirmalananda who achieves maha samadhi as his proof that this is possible. The yogi was 73! He lived in silence and solitude for decades before achieving the mythical maha samadhi. C) Supposedly, Vijji told Jaggi that, she wants to die the same way, as this yogi even though she says her life is happy externally and internally. Their daughter "Radhe" was only 7 when Vijji died. Also, supposedly she announces her death date 9 months before she dies, but she misses her exit-date by a month. So why does Jaggi, insist that he was surprised, when she died? In fact, he admits that he was "irritated" that she got up and walked around during his meditation just minutes before dying. D) Again the question arises? If, SJV knew and had met, an advanced Yogi, like Nirmalananda with Vijji, when she was alive, why didn't he substitute him for Vijji for the Dhyanalinga consecration, which could have made the process, more secure safe and sure 100% which could have resulted in Vijji being alive now? Refer question raised in point # 9 C. Wait a Minute! Again see! No mention of the Divine consort who was absconding! E)What great sages like Swami Sivananda couldn't achieve in less than 15-20 years, when they were meditating for 16 hrs a day and they retained their bodies for about 30 years after attaining Nirvikalpa Samadhi yet Vijji, A home-maker admittedly not an accomplished yogi[She would, not even, have read the Patanjali Yoga Sutras], leaves her happy, healthy body after a few years of meditating? None in Isha's, thousands of devotees, have attained this. Isn't this, the same SJV that knows, which color of underwear, people are wearing? Isn't this the same guy who boasts that he "pulls people back" from leaving their body during Samyama? If his story is true, then shouldn't people be revering Vijji and not SJV? She's obviously the better yogi-such "exuberance for life" that she simply left her body. Meanwhile, he's a poor yogi, if he doesn't know, that his wife is leaving her body, never mind being unable to stop it. Not very comforting, that he tells people at BSP and Samyama that they are safe, meditating in his presence and he won't let them leave their bodies. Readers can themselves decide whatever might be the truth about dhyanalinga consecration and whatever benefits this dhyanalinga would actually render to the people. 10- In Isha, the bliss effects of joining the program are too well crafted, at the same time, warnings that the program[BSP] may have negative effects on certain people is always hidden. The regular quote by SJV's volunteers is; Sign up for the Inner Engineering, Doesn't work go do BSP, BSP lands one in hospital for 15 days, Do Hata Yoga; Hata yoga creates intense fever for 7 days, Doesn't work try shoonya, shoonya reduces one's mental alertness and reduces intelligence, Refer wComment=1232518020000#c1959516706952090688 Doesn't work go for Samyama. If all fails one is too much of "Head" & "Investigator". The most bizarre and one sided hypo critic argument made by the Isha cult is that if you get any benefits from the practice of Isha yoga it is all because of Sadhguru and if it backfires on some people it is because of the lack of intensity/ego of the participants. Heads Isha wins tails the participants lose. Please see 6 direct lies from the Master himself. 11- SJV tells in his Inner Engineering Program, that if one does not take nervous stimulants like tea and coffee the human body can keeping going without food for a maximum of 8 days as long as it gets enough water. Yet for SJV, it was samadhi in his farm for 13 days without food and water! 12- In one video, where he talks about saving money by skipping a meal [less than $ 1] for Isha Vidhya [Rural Schools\ he says that Wednesday is a very special day for him as on a Wednesday, he was Born. But upon verification, neither 03-Sep-1957 or 23-Sep-1957, 03-Sep-1982, nor 23-Sep-1982 was a Wednesday. An enlightened master, with 3 past enlightened lifetimes, who claims to remember the past life names of people and advocates living in this present moment cannot remember, such an important day of his present life! When this master, can spend $ 266,000 on a Beta R22 Helicopter [annual cost $ 8000, flying cost $ 122 per hour] $ 80,000 on a Hummer, $ 36,500 on a Land Rover in order to satisfy his whims & penchant for driving luxury and fast cars, I again wonder, how much money can he ask people to save by weekly dinner fasts? So readers, can see the genuineness, in his statements about Isha Vidhya! 13-In another Video "When what you dream comes true" the Master quotes the name of one premier physical research institute D' Labor laboratory of England and speaks about a path breaking experiment with hyper sensitive photo film which was able to capture an image of a rosebud as a fully bloomed flower. And this experiment was repeated multiple times with the same result. However upon searching the Internet for ½ a day there is no such evidence of this experiment or even the existence of any such laboratory in the world. 14-"The risk to Isha was what happens were Sadhguru to achieve maha samadhi and proceed onto another life." Years ago, SJV would say that he had no idea how long he could 'keep his body.' After a number of hospital stays with some unknown illnesses, he eventually got better. It wasn't until he had a clean bill of health that he publicly announced he'll be on earth for at least another 5-10 years. There was a period of time that Ishaites didn't think he would make it and one of SJV's top devotees Sri Senthil was taking over more of SJV's programs....just in case. If he can control his physical death, how can he not control his physical life? Why the many hospital stays? When SJV recovered, he was quick to take responsibility for his 'miraculous recovery'...saying that the doctors did nothing for him and were completely baffled by his illnesses. Then how in the heck did he get sick in the first place? Why doesn't he take responsibility for that? Remember, he was so sick that he was preparing his underling to take over. So his recovery was obviously a surprise and outside his power. SJV, had already confirmed, that he would be consecrating and establishing an occult temple[Linga Bhairavi] as a safeguard to the dhyanalinga, 1 to 2 years, before he leaves his body[Page 452 MM Book] so, by 31-Jan-2012, he should have left. Since he is still living, again everything is a lie. 15-In a discourse video[Enlightenment-Life the way It is] to a question, as to what yoga practices he performed, by which he got blissful and ecstatic, He says; "They
