“Adiyogi has been brought into your life to see that a dimension which has no boundaries becomes a living reality in your life.”

-Sadhguru

The Abode is also an expression of gratitude to Adi Yogi, the first yogi, who offered the yogic sciences to the world over 15,000 years ago. He brought technology and methods, not as a philosophy or teaching, as to how one can raise their energies and transform their lives into a great possibility. The profound methods offered at the Abode are in consonance with Adi Yogi’s work.

“Adiyogi is a reminder that you can be involved with everything in the universe and still be absolutely above it. That’s the message he is. That is his message; absolutely engaged in life but never in it. I don’t want you to ever see him as a god. I want you to see him as a human being, who achieved a state that everybody should aspire for.”

-Sadhguru

“Yoga does not mean standing on your head, or holding your breath. Yoga is the science and technology to know the essential nature of how this life is created and how it can be taken to its ultimate possibility.”

-Sadhguru

It is estimated close to two billion people are using some kind of yogic system today in different forms that are not necessarily referred to as ‘yoga.’ The beauty of yoga is that it is an elaborate expression of human mechanics – whichever way you sit, stand, breathe, think or feel, for every aspect of your life, there is a type of yoga. Knowingly or unknowingly, millions of people across the planet are practicing some form of yoga because the process is simple, empowering, and effective.

CHANNELIZING MODERN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

“This yogic science is of utmost importance now, like never before, because today we have tremendous power in our hands. With modern science and technology, tomorrow if we want, we can flatten a mountain or city. When we have this much power in our hands, it is very, very important that we have an inner sense, an awareness of life, and that we experience life and everyone as part of ourselves. Otherwise, we can create a calamity for ourselves and the world around us—which right now we are doing to some extent. This has happened only because we have attended only to the external science. We have never looked at the inner science within us. Just as there is an external science to create external wellbeing, there is an inner science to create inner wellbeing.” – Sadhguru

TRANSCEND LIFE’S STRUGGLES

Today many people perceive yoga as challenging postures, a trend for weight loss or merely a stress reliever, without realizing its depth and dimension. Sadhguru’s vision is to revive this ancient science in its purity and profoundness, and offer it to every individual.
He says, “If you are willing to strive, you can transcend all your limitations. We want this one message, which is over 15,000 years old, to reverberate across the planet. Whether everybody actually gets there or not, they should at least know that if they have the necessary focus, they can. I want this one message to reach every human being. No matter what they are going through in their lives – their struggles, frustrations, madness, longing – that if they are willing to strive, they can transcend all of this.”
