Perception Of An Oxymoron: Baba-ism for Dummies. Ajay mailed me a video, an interesting one at that. This is a "How To" guide or "self-help video" to become a successful cult leader. This refreshed my memories, when on insistence of Shivi, I joined Isha Yoga's spirituality program called Inner Engineering. The difference between me and other participants was that I went there with an "examining mind" and others with "submissive minds. " Whatever was being said, shown, taught, their behavior, the ambiance, all was being scrutinized by this tiny brain. There was enormous effort by the yoga teachers (or cult preachers) to make it as logical and appealing as possible. However, at that time, there was no negative evidence in my possession and there was no reason to disbelief what was told.
Meanwhile, I laid my hand on a book called "Inner Journey" by Osho. These were enough for me to form an opinion about Isha Yoga and its founder.

It has been almost a month since I finished the 3 day INNER ENGINEERING Program at Hyderabad from 15th to 17th Feb 2013. 15th Feb 2013 was to be my first marriage anniversary and we were thinking about the places we could go to. I had already been to the Isha Yoga Centre in Coimbatore. So, based on that wonderful experience, I wanted to show that place to my wife too and thus we were planning on going there together for our first marriage anniversary. As luck would have it, just a day after talking about it, I saw an ad on the internet about the Inner Engineering Program to be held at Hyderabad (the place we are currently staying) on the same day as our marriage anniversary and the weekend and to add to it, it was close enough to my wife's office too.

Isha Yoga’s Inner Engineering was the very first program I ever signed up for. It was the 7-day teacher-led version of the program, which takes place on weekday evenings and part of the weekend. I knew very little about yoga, meditation, Isha Yoga, Sadhguru, or personal development work at the time, and I was skeptical and slightly concerned that Isha Yoga might be a cult. That said, one of the outcomes of the program is that participants learn a daily 21-minute seated kriya yoga practice, which was my main reason for being there – I didn’t know if I would get all that much out of the program itself, knowing as little as I did. I figured I’d learn to meditate and be on my way. One of the things that was a concern for me before starting the class was that Isha Yoga was created by a guru.
Isha Yoga isn’t very well known in the USA yet, but recently built an ashram in Tennessee and is hard at work establishing a presence here.

Up until the book promotion company contacted me, I never heard of the book, but I wasn't going to turn down the opportunity to offer a give-away, and I was thrilled to be given a free book myself. Who doesn't like free? What I didn't realize was how much that book would change my life.
My free book arrived in my mailbox the day before leaving for vacation. So I read and read and by the time I got to my destination I already felt like a changed person, like several light bulbs of awareness went off in my head. The reason why I related to the author of that book so much was because she described most of her life as 'perfect.' The book led me to a quest to research Isha Yoga and the Mystic himself, Sadhguru. My next step was to sign up for the Inner Engineering program which is an online course consisting of 7 one and half hour lectures by Sadhguru.
