Encounter the Enlightened is a guiding beacon of divine wisdom and inspiration for all persons seeking self-realization and an experience of the unbounded nature of life. Master, mystic and yogi Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev presents a rare glimpse of undiluted truth from discourses given to yoga disciples and other audiences at his ashram in south India and around the world. A tool of tremendous value in an age imprisoned by materialism and dogma, these dialogues are an essential key to inner exploration of the profound questions of humanity: Who am I? Why are we here? What happens after death? What is the meaning of life? The master speaks with undeniable logic and wisdom that penetrates the deepest realms of our heart and soul.
Encounter the Enlightened examines some of the most controversial social and spiritual issues of our time through the lens, wisdom and words of an enlightened being whose teachings are simple and pristine. Sadhguru's compelling and often-provocative responses lead readers to an understanding of the ego that keeps us in bondage, the fragmentary nature of the mind and the crippling conditioning of society. Sadhguru presents a possibility to transcend the limitations of the three-dimensional world and awaken the absolute – the ultimate fulfillment. In the words of Sadhguru, the fruit of such an awakening is that “you can go through life untouched, you can play with life whichever way you want and still life cannot do anything to you; life does not leave scars on you. That is the miracle that we are working to manifest in everybody's life.”
The book is a rare gem for all who seek truth beyond solace and who are willing to abandon sensibilities for the sacred. It is a glimpse of the divine potential that we are.
