Product description

Review

First things first! When Sadhguru uses the word 'Adiyogi', he can mean either 'that which is not', or Shiva, the first ever Yogi who perceived that emptiness experientially, and in Sadhguru's own experience, they are not separate and he travels seamlessly between these two definitions. Chronicles, some of which are in the form of myths, occupy a prominent position in this book and if one goes with the intellect to discern it, one will miss the point entirely. Miss Subramaniam, the co- author of the book, is there as a representative of a contemporary society where psychological realities reign supreme. Saying that, she has played her part really well, as she very briefly sketches her own personal journey from a once skeptic disciple to the one who now leans on the bedrock of trust laid out by her guru, atleast on spiritual matters, notwithstanding the occasional thought waves of onslaught instigated by her mind, like the majority of us. The last section of the book is in the form of a dialogue where Arundhathi asks Sadhguru regarding the need of this particular book, how the various categorisations of Adiyogi as a mythological, metaphysical,cosmological and existential figure adds up in the long run, and above all, how Sadhguru's own inner experiences helps in presenting this complex phenomenon before a person living in this age. Arundhathi's language and vocabulary deserves a special applause as she is comfortably placed in the good books of all dictionaries --By Agasthyan on 1 March 2017

This is a one of kind book, exploring Shiva in a unique way. My neighbour has already borrowed it to read. I had time only to read the first chapter will give a detailed review once my neighbour returns it. --By Subbu on 3 March 2017

The courier service was great. I am loving reading the book. It feels like another mystic musings...I cannot review the book as a whole yet but until now it is spellbinding experience for me. Arundhati Subramanayam has cleared all the kind of scepticism that can bud in one's mind. --By Amazon Customer on 2 March 2017

This book is worth much more than it's price. It's a must read and one that I'll go back to again and again. If you like a frugal lifestyle, the simple things in life, then Shiva will naturally attract you.
This book is how Sadhguru views Shiva, with Yogic, Mythic lore and his personal anecdotes. It's a wonderful read. Go for it! You won't regret it, surely!
