Sadhguru is a mystic, yogi and spiritual leader. Born in Southern India as Jaggu Vasudev in 1957, he is founder of the Isha Foundation. Sadhguru often explains how the land of Nepal, nestled in the mighty Himalayas, was created as a living, tantric body by yogis and mystics. Here we present how he is connected to Nepal starting from his young age when he was an avid traveller.
Sadhguru wrote on his bestselling book ‘Inner Engineering’ about his dream as a young man, ‘ There was a time when I crisscrossed India on my motorcycle. My dream was to go around the world on my motorcycle.’
A young rider’s first attempt to enter Nepal, Sadhguru shares on his book ‘I had even gone up to Nepal but I had to come back because at the border, they asked me for my papers. I did not know I needed papers to leave the country’s borders. I didn’t have any papers except my motorcycle license.” I thought my motorcycle could take me everywhere. I turned back and tried going another way, but there also at the border check post they said no.’ (Photo isha.sadhguru.org)

Sadhguru on Bhaktapur, “Bhaktapur means a city of devotees, or a city of devotion. It was created in such a way that it will not let you forget the presence of the divine even for a single moment. Anywhere you looked, every small utility was made like a temple. Every step that you took on the streets, you could see a tremendous sense of aesthetics”.
