Sadhguru: More than a life

Sadhguru: More Than A Life by Arundhathi Subramaniam

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Lately there have been a lot of chaos around "gurus" in India. I picked up the book after reading Autobiography of a yogi and Apprenticed to a Himalyan master. I expected this to fall under the same standard but somehow something was missing when compared to my earlier reads. Sometimes the book seemed to me like a PR statement for "Isha Foundation". There are a lot of good things which have been listed in book but somehow I was unable to connect. I read a lot of controversies about the man being referred in book on internet. There was a time in mid when I didn't want to carry on reading the book but I wanted to listen to the complete point of view of author.

Apprenticed to a Himalayan Master

Apprenticed to a Himalayan Master by Sri M

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I brought this book a year ago and for a year it was in my book-shelf. After reading autobiography of a yogi I thought I would be unable to get my hands on a book like that but I was wrong. Apprenticed to a Himalayan Master resumes from Autobiography of Yogi only in this case we are fortunate that the author SRI M is living among us.

Written in a very simple language , it takes reader through a lot of examples which are a treat to read. There are some scenarios which will be difficult to comprehend but again that shows how advanced our science was in the past or more aptly as Shashi Tharoor says India is a past developed nation.

I loved every bit of the book and it gives user examples of human body is and there are amazing number of people on planet earth who are unheard of. I was moved by the last chapter where the author goes to Kailash.

To sum it up I was glad I read the book and hope one day I also meet Sri M.
