Jaggi Vasudev (Sadhguru) vs True Satguru Saint Rampal Ji
Jaggi Vasudev (Sadhguru) – Incomplete Saint (अधूरे संत)
Today we will tell you about Sadguru Jaggi Vasudev. We will give you information about the nescience of the Sadguru Jaggi Vasudev. Yes, about nescience. Because true knowledge is given by a “true” saint (Sadhguru). This means that Jaggi Vasudev is not real Sadhguru. Jaggi Vasudev is a yogi. ‘Yoga’ means ‘to connect’. But, the yoga of Jaggi Vasudev cannot connect you with God. Rather, it is turning you away from God. The real Sadguru is Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj. Yes, He is the real Satguru. We will prove the above information with real facts and proofs.

Jaggi Vasudev (Sadhguru) was born on 3 September 1957 in Mysore, Karnataka, India. The original name of Sadhguru is Jagdish Vasudev.
Sadhguru’s mother’s name is Susheela Vasudev (a housewife) and his father’s name is Dr. B.V Vasudev (works as an ophthalmologist in Indian Railways). Sadhguru married Vijayakumari in 1984 on the day of Mahashivratri. He married at the age of 27 years. He has only one daughter named Radhe. His wife died in 1997.
Sadhguru completed his schooling at the Demonstration School of Mysore. He completed his bachelor's degree in English from the University of Mysore in 1973. During his college life, his interest in traveling increased a lot.
At the age of 25, a strange incident happened to him. On 23 September 1982, when he was sitting on the Chamundi hill outside Bengaluru. Suddenly, for the first time, he felt an indescribable unity with the universe. He forgot himself. He thought this experience is the result of the yoga he practiced.
Palani Swami is the guru of Jaggi Vasudev. Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev claims that he constructed Dhyanalinga, which is standing 4.3 meters tall, at the behest of his guru Palani Swami.
Sadhguru is famous worldwide for his Isha foundation. Isha foundation sells its products at a very high price. Some famous personalities use Isha products to show off their standard of living. Jaggi Vasudev speaks English fluently. English speakers in India get special respect.
It is the yoga center founded in 1992 by Jaggi Vasudev (Sadhguru) near Coimbatore, India. Its main aim is to disperse the knowledge of the science of yoga among people. Isha Foundation’s activities are carried out all around the world.
Let us know about various activities and programs of the Isha foundation in detail.
Main Isha Yoga Center is in Coimbatore, India. Other major centers are the Isha Yoga Center in Delhi, and the Isha Institute of Inner-sciences in McMinnville, Tennessee, USA.
According to Jaggi Vasudev, Isha foundation was founded for the purpose of enhancing human consciousness in the field of spirituality, education, and the environment through inner transformation by yoga. Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev believes in yoga because he considers Shiva as Adiyogi, and he believes that by doing yoga the highest achievement of life can be achieved. Jaggi Vasudev neither knows about Shiva nor about the highest achievement of life. This can be explained on the basis of the books he wrote. The knowledge in the books does not match our Holy scriptures.
Every person who has money to pay rent can stay in the Isha Foundation.
Programs at the Isha foundation are divided into two categories:
- Beginner Programs
- Advanced Programs
This program is for beginners who have just joined the Isha foundation programs.
- Inner Engineering: It includes Shambavi Mahamudra Kriya. It begins with Pranayama (Sukha kriya) which helps in balancing the mind within 6 to 7 minutes, followed by long repetitions of the bija mantra “om”. According to them, it maintains high energy, improves communication, eliminates stress, fear, and anxiety, inner peace, joy, and fulfillment.
- Hatha yoga: Isha hatha yoga consists of five ancient practices (Upa-Yoga, Angamardana, Surya Kriya, Yogasanas, Bhuta Shuddhi) that helps in balancing the body and mind.
- Isha kriya: (Steps in Isha kriya) It starts with sitting facing east in a cross-legged posture, with your spine comfortably erect. Keep your hands upon your thighs, with your palms facing up. With your face slightly upturned, eyes closed, keep a mild focus between your eyebrows.
This meditation happens in three stages:
- STAGE 1: Inhale and exhale gently, slowly. With each inhalation, mentally say to yourself: “I am not the body.” The inhalation should last the whole duration of that thought. With each exhalation, mentally say to yourself: “I am not even the mind.” The exhalation should last for the whole duration of that thought. Repeat this for 7 to 11 minutes.
- STAGE 2: Utter a long “A” sound (as the “a” in father). The sound should come from just below the navel. You need not utter it very loud, but loud enough to feel the vibration. Utter the long “A” sound 7 times, exhaling fully into each sound.
- STAGE 3: Sit for 5 to 6 minutes with a slightly upturned face and keep a mild focus between your eyebrows. The total time of this practice is between 12 to 18 minutes. You can sit longer if you want.
- Aumkar Meditation: This type of meditation is started with chanting the “om” mantra.
- Uyir Nokkam: It is a simple yogic practice made by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev that, according to him, makes one’s body, mind, emotions, energies, and five elements within us, and works according to our wellness.
- Shoonya Intensive: Shoonya intensive includes physical postures and breathing exercises and involvement sitting with closed eyes and engaging in a process of conscious non-doing that creates a distance between oneself and one's body and mind. Inner engineering is essential for this program to be started.
- Bhava Spandana: Inner engineering is essential for this program as well to be started. This includes physical postures and breathing exercises. This program is also related to meditation.
- Samyama: A state comes when you feel that you are not a body. This state is called Samyama. Inner engineering is essential for this program also to be started. In this program, participants spend 8 days in complete silence with meditation.
- Samyama Sadhana: A state comes when you feel that you are not a body, not a mind not the world around. This state is called Samyama sadhna. Inner engineering is essential for this program also to be started. In this program, participants spend 4 and a half days in complete silence with meditation.
Pros: Isha foundation claims that:
1. It increases the ability to fight with stress.
2. It increases energy levels throughout the day.
3. It helps in getting rid of some diseases.
4. It increases productivity and efficiency.
Cons: After reading the above program we conclude that these programs are based on meditation and yoga which is not in accordance with our Holy scriptures. By joining the programs, our body, mind, and soul might get relief for some time but not a permanent solution. By joining the Isha program, we cannot get rid of the cycle of birth, and neither can we get rid of the 84 lakh cycle of birth and death nor can it destroy ours sins, which is the sole reason we suffer in any life.
Real yoga or real worship is the worship which is in accordance with our religious scriptures. The Guru who tells worship in accordance with the scriptures is Satguru. True worship is real yoga which gives you all the benefits that are essential for human life. Only Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj is the real Guru on this planet who tells the true worship.
These are very expensive programs. A labourer person can't afford these. These programs are for rich people. There are so many discount offers. There are so many packages to attend these programs.
Isha foundation sells so many products of various categories:
- Temple & Consecrated
- Yoga Store
- Natural Foods
- Health & Wellness
- Clothing & Accessories
- Body Care
- Books & DVDs
- Home Decor
It is the business of a businessman to sell the articles in these categories. Saints don't do this kind of business. The real Saint does the business of God's name and gives salvation to his disciples.
Sadhguru or Satguru means a true Guru who gives the correct way of worship and gives salvation to his disciples. Jaggi Vasudev Ji calls himself “Sadguru” because he believes that he has achieved everything from his own experience. But it is wrong to give the title of “Sadhguru” to Jaggi Vasudev because he does not even know the meaning of Sadhguru.
According to Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev Ji, the teacher who provides salvation is the one with whom you feel the fear, but you do not want to go away from them. The spiritual guru with whom you feel comfortable is not your right teacher.
Written below are some of the Identification of a Complete Saint according to our Holy Scriptures:
- A True Saint explains the path of Bhakti according to the scriptures only.
- The other contemporary religious gurus stand in his opposition, and by misleading the king and the people, inflict atrocities on Him.
- He has the knowledge of all the Holy scriptures.
- He does not discriminate among his disciples.
Yajurved Adhyay 19 Mantra 25
Arddh richaeH ukthanm′ roopam′ padaeH aapnoti nividH |
PrnvaeH shastranam′ roopam′ paysa somH aapyate ||25
Meaning: A Tatvadarshi Saint is one who explains the coded words of the Vedas in detail; as a result of which Supreme God is attained. He is said to be the knower of the Vedas.
In Bhagavad Gita Chapter 15 Verse 1, it is stated that –
With the roots above in the form of Purna Parmatma and the three gunas-like (Rajgun-Brahma Ji, Satgun-Vishnu Ji, and Tamgun-Shiv Ji) branches below, the tree of the world is eternal and extensive. It is like a Peepal tree that has numerous twigs and branches. It is as strong as a horse. Its smaller divisions are twigs and leaves etc. One, who knows that world-like tree in this manner, is a completely knowledgeable person i.e. is a Tattavdarshi Saint. Kabir Sahib states –
Akshar Purush ek ped hai, Niranjan (Brahm) vaaki daar |
Teeno deva shaakha hain, paat roop sansaar ||
This is the tree of the world hanging upside down. The root above (Purna Brahm Parmatma – Param Akshar Purush) is SatPurush, Akshar Purush (ParBrahm) is the trunk visible outside earth, Jyoti Niranjan (Brahm – Kshar Purush) is the branch, and the three gods (Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh) are smaller branches. Know the twigs and leaves as demigods-demigoddesses and ordinary living beings.
Only Kabir Saheb told us about how this world-like tree is hanging upside down. He reveals all parts of this tree. In this way, only Kabir sahib was the Tatvadarshi Saint.
Jaggi Vasudev has no knowledge of our religious scriptures. He doesn't even know the a-b-c-d of our scriptures. Let us compare Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev's spiritual knowledge with our Holy scriptures.
Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev is confused about whether God exists or not. He says whether you believe that there is God or you believe that there is no God, both are the same thing. Jaggi Vasudev can’t answer this question clearly. Let us know the answer to this question from our Holy scriptures.
Now, we will know what our religious scriptures say about the Existence of God.
In the Holy Quran Sharif Surat Furqani no. 25, Aayat 52 to 59, it is said that in reality, (Ibaadaii Kabira) Kabir Allah is worthy of being worshipped. This Kabir is that same Supreme God who created the entire nature in six days and sat on the throne on the seventh day.
In the Holy Bible in Genesis on page no. 2, Verse 1:20 & 2:5,
Sixth Day: - Creatures and Man: After creating the other creatures, 26. Then God said, “Let us make man in our own image, in our likeness, who will rule over all the creatures. 27. Then, God created man in His own image, in His own image God created him; He created human beings as male and female.
The Holy Bible has proved that God has a man-like visible body, who created the entire nature in six days and then took rest on the seventh day.
Rigved Mandal 9 Sukt 96 Mantra 20
aryaH na shubhrstanvam mrjaanH atyaH na srtva sanye dhanaanam
Vrshev yootha parikoshm arshan kanikrdat chamvoH ira vivesh||
Meaning: Supreme God Kabir Dev (Supreme God Kabir) lives above in the third dhaam i.e. Satyalok and that same Supreme God by acquiring another human-like form lives in the fourth Dhaam i.e. Anami lok. That very God, in an identical human form with a beautiful face and white-coloured body, also comes in form on this Earth, and by making aware about His actual way of worship, makes a very big group i.e. the entire group of devotees rich in true bhakti. The entire group of the infinite followers, by doing worship, attains the former lok of happiness, the treasure of complete salvation i.e. Satyalok with the earnings of true bhakti.
The speech on page 1257 of Shri Guru Granth Saheb Ji is written as follows:
Shri Guru Granth Saheb Ji Page 1257 (Sakaar Parmatma) Malar Mahala 1 Gharu 2
Bage kapad Bole Bain. Lama naku kale tere nain || Kabhun Sahibh Dekhiya Bhen || Oodaa Oodi Chadha Asman || Sahib Sammrth Tere Tan || Jali thali dungari dekha teer || Than Thanantari Sahibu Bir || Jini tanu sa Ji diye nali khamb || Ati trishna udne ki dhanjh || Nadari kare tan bandha dheer || Jiu Vekhale Tiu Vekhan Bir || Na Ihu Tanu Jaiga na Jahige khambh || Paune Paani Agni snbandh || Nanak Karmu Howe japiye kri Guru Piru || Sachhi samave ehu siriru. ४ || ४ || ६ ||
In the above words, Shri Nanak Ji tells about the form of God.
Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev says that God is a person's own thinking. Sadhguru gives an example of this, for example, if you ask dogs, “Who is God?” Dogs can say that even a dog can be God. Similarly, if you ask a woman, a woman can also say that God can be in the form of a woman. In this way, Jaggi Vasudev gave some arbitrary examples and said that God is a thought.
Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev Ji says that every person has his own opinion about God that God is like this or that.
He says, “Humans have not been able to define themselves. Whatever definition a person gives about himself will not be correct. No definition of any kind is correct to describe this organism. If a creature of the universe could not define himself, then how can it define the creator of the whole creation?”
Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev Ji says, “Neither you can understand this creation nor you can define it. You can never know it. You can just dissolve into it.”
If we want to know about God then we should go through our religious scriptures. Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj always gives us knowledge from our Holy scriptures which is mentioned below.
People of the world know that the Holy Vedas were the first Holy Scriptures which were given by God. According to the Vedas, Kabir is God.
Where does God Live? — According to Rigveda, Mandal 9, Sukt 96, Mantra 18
Rishimna ya rishikrit' swarshaH sahastraneethH padviH kavinam' |
Trteeyam' dhaam mahishH sIsha sant' somH viraajmanu rajti stup' |
Translation: The narrator of Holy Vedas, Brahm is saying that the Purna Parmatma (Complete God) who comes in the form of an extraordinary child, attaining the title of famous poets i.e. plays the role of a saint or a Rishi (sage), the thousands of speeches composed by that God who has appeared as a saint, are provider of happiness equal to that of heaven to the individuals of saintly nature i.e. bhakts. That Eternal Purush i.e. SatPurush after establishing the very firm Earth of the third Mukti lok i.e. Satyalok, Himself being in a human-like bright material form i.e. in a human-like effulgent body is seated in the dome on the high hillock-like throne.
God Is in Form and Has a Human-like Body According to Yajurved Adhyay 5, Mantra 1
Agne TanuH Asi | Vishnve Tva Somasya Tanur' Asi ||
- It has been stated twice in this Mantra that Parmeshwar has a body. Eternal Purush has a body for nurturing everyone i.e. when God comes as a guest in this world for some time to explain Tattavgyan to His devotees.
- He comes by wearing a body of lighter masses of lights over His actual effulgent body that is why the evidence has been given twice in the aforesaid Mantra. A similar description of God is also given in Yajurved Adhyay 1, Mantra 15 where it says that God has a body and is in form.
According to Atharva Veda “Name of Supreme God is kabir dev” - The Name of Supreme God is Kavir Dev or colloquially 'Kabir Sahib', 'Hakka Kabir', 'Sat Kabir', 'Allahu Akbar', 'Kabiran', 'Khabira'
Atharva Ved Kaand no. 4 Anuvaak no.1 Mantra no. 7
YaH – atharvanm' - Pitram' - Devbandhum' - Brahspatim' - namsa – av – ch –gachchhaat' - tvam' - vishwesham' - janita – yatha – saH – KavirdevH – na – dabhaayat' - swadhavan'
Translation: He, who is unchanging i.e. eternal, Father of the universe, the real companion of the devotees i.e. the basis of the soul, Guru of the universe, and who takes a polite worshipper, i.e. worshipper who worships according to the scriptures, who has gone to Satlok, to Satlok with safety; the Creator of all the brahmands, Jagdamba i.e. who is also endowed with the qualities of a mother, who has the nature i.e. qualities of not betraying like Kaal, He is, as it is, Himself KavirDev i.e. in different language He is also called Kabir Parmeshwar.
In this Mantra, it has also been made clear that the name of that God, who has done all the Creation, is KavirDev (God Kabir).

Bible is the main Holy scriptures according to Christianity.
Iyov 36:5 - Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)
See, El is Kabir, and despiseth, not any; He is Kabir in ko’ach lev (strength of understanding).
Translation: Supreme God is Kabir, but despises no one. He is Kabir, and firm in his purpose.
In all Bible translations, the word Kabir has been translated as "Mighty" or "Great" whereas Kabir is the original name of Supreme God.
Conclusion: This verse of the Bible proves that Kabir is Complete God. The one who worships God Kabir by taking initiation from the complete Saint sent by Him gets complete salvation. After attaining salvation that souls rest in peace in the eternal abode Satlok forever. The throne of God is in Satlok.

Holy Quran Sharif, Surat Furkani 25, verse no. 52, 58, 59:
It is clearly written ‘Kabiran’. We can call it ‘Kabir’ or Kabira’ or ‘ Kabiran’ or ‘Khabira’ or ‘Khabiran. It is clear this is Kabira. He says do not obey the disbelievers, and strive against them with the Qur'an a great striving.
The knowledge giver of Quran Sharif says ‘do not agree to non-believers (infidels) because they do not consider Kabir as the Supreme God and with the plea of Quran Sharif face them with great force (Do not fight) i.e. remain rigid for Allah Kabir.’
Verse 25:58: -
Va tavakkal' alal'- harulli Ji la yamutu va sabbih' bihm'dihi va kafaa bihi bijunoobi ibadihi Khabira (Kabira)
The knowledge giver of Quran Sharif is giving information about some other AllahTala, about Supreme God, Allah Kabir. He says ‘O-Prophet trust that ‘Zinda’ who met you inform as ‘Zinda Saint’, trust Him, who never dies, means HE is immortal, and praise Him; means HE is different than the knowledge giver of Quran Sharif, whom he is telling to praise; that God. He destroys the sins of His devotees.
Verse 25:59: -
All' Ji khalakassmaavaati val'arj va ma bainhuma fi sittati ayyaamin' summastwa alal'arshi arrh'maanu fs'al' bihi Khabiran' (Kabiran')
The knowledge giver of Quran Sharif says HE is the same GOD, Allahu Akbar ‘Kabir, who created the entire universe and all that is between the Earth and Sky in six days and sat on the throne, in His Eternal Place (Satlok) on the seventh day. Ask about the real Knowledge of that Supreme God and about His information from a Baakhabar / Tatvadarshi Saint, as how can He be attained. I do not know. It has been proved that the giver of the knowledge of Quran Sharif does not know about Him.
For more information, see: Who is God in Quran sharif? — Explained by Saint Rampal Ji
He says that the people of Christianity finally speak Amen which is similar to Om. Jaggi Vasudev Ji says that Om should be chant like this. "aaaaaammmmm"
Because this method of chanting of Om Mantra is not mentioned in any scripture, it is an arbitrary practice. According to Gita Ji, by doing arbitrary practices, no accomplishment or happiness is attained.
A complete Saint will give Updesh (initiation) of three types of mantras (Naam).
The correct way of worship according to Vedas, Shrimad Bhagwad Geeta:
It has been written in Yajurved Adhyay 19 Mantra 25 that a True Guru will elaborate the incomplete sentences of the Vedas i.e. the coded words and one-fourth shlokas by completing them. He is a beneficent saint of the world.
Yajurved Adhyay 19 Mantra 25
Arddh richaeH ukthanm roopam padaeH aapnoti nividH
PrnvaeH shastranam roopam paysa somH aapyate |25|
Translation: A saint, who fills in by completing the incomplete sentences i.e. coded words of the Vedas; perceives the fourth part i.e. partial sentences of the shlokas in the form of stotras i.e. completely understands and explains the partial description; just as one who knows how to operate the weapons uses them fully; likewise, a Complete Saint completely understanding and explaining the Omkaars i.e. Om -Tat -Sat mantras, sieves milk-water i.e. provides Tatvagyan-like waterless milk, by which one attains the Eternal Purush i.e. the Eternal God, that Complete Saint is said to be the knower of the Vedas.
Meaning: A Tatvadarshi Saint is one who explains the coded words of the Vedas in detail; as a result of which Supreme God is attained. He is said to be the knower of the Vedas.
Gita Adhyay 17 Shlok 23
(ॐ,) Om Tat, Sat, iti nirdeshH, BrhmnH, trividhH, smritH,
BrahmnaH, ten, vedaH, ch, yagyaH, ch, vihitaH, pura
Translation: (ॐ) /Om is the mantra of Brahm (Tat ) Tat - this is the indicative mantra of ParBrahm and (Sat ) Sat - this is the indicative mantra of Purna Brahm (iti) in this way, this (trividhH) of three types (BrhmnH) of sumiran of Naam of Supreme God (nirdeshH) an direction (smritH) is said to be (ch) and (pura) at the beginning of nature (brahmnaH) the scholars told that (ten) that same Supreme God (vedaH) Ved (ch) and (yagyaH) Yagya, etc (vihitaH) created.
Translation: ॐ /Om is the mantra of Brahm –Kshar Purush, Tat - this is the indicative mantra of ParBrahm –Akshar Purush, Sat - this is the indicative mantra of Purna Brahm -Satpurush, in this way, this is said to be the direction of sumiran of three types of Naam for attaining Supreme God, and at the beginning of nature, Brahmins i.e. learned men used to do sadhana based on this only and they told that same Supreme God created Ved and Yagya, etc.

In Jaggi Vasudev’s views, if there is no God, then there is no avatar as well. Avatar means coming again. But Jaggi Vasudev Ji says that God does not take any avatar because he believes, “He does not exist. Those whom people call avatars did not come, they were already here.” After this Jaggi Vasudev Ji said, “The avatar, whose symptoms are like Shiva, people call him an avatar of Shiva, whose symptoms are like Vishnu, people call him an avatar of Vishnu.” So, Jaggi Vasudev Ji believes that God does not take any Avtar.
"Definition of Incarnation (Avatar): "Avatar" means to descend from a higher place to a lower place. Especially this auspicious word is used for those good souls who do some amazing work on earth. Those who are believed to have been sent by God or believe that God Himself is coming on the earth.
There are two types of Incarnation (avatars) here on earth:
- The Avtar of Kshar Purush (Brahm): - who calls himself Kaala in the Gita Chapter 11 Verse 32.
- The Avatar of Param Akshar Purush (Param Akshar Brahm): - who is mentioned in Gita chapter 8 verses 3 and 8,9,10 and Gita chapter 18 verses 62 chapters 15 verses 1 to 4 and 17.
Verse 7 of Gita Chapter 4
Yada, Yada, He, Dharmasya, Glanih, Bhavati, Bharat
, Abhyutthanam, Adharmasya, Tada, Atmanam, Sreejami,
Translation: (Bharat) O Bharat! (Yada, yada) When-when (dharmasya) dharmaki (glanih) loss and (unrighteousness) unrighteous (abhyuthanam) increase (bhavati) (tada) then-then (hi) only (aham) I (atmanam) I am my part avatar I create (creation) ie I create. (7)
Meaning: Whenever hatred arises on earth, and there is a loss of religion and there is an increase of unrighteousness, then I (Kaal = Brahma = Kshar Purush) create my part incarnation ie. just like Kaal Brahm had generated Shri Ramchandra Ji and Shri Krishna Chandra Ji on earth, who is considered to be Lord Vishnu himself. Apart from these, 8 avatars have been said which Shri Vishnu Ji does not come himself, but from his world, he sends his Ansh-Avtar. They are also an avatar. The Puranas also mention 25 incarnations somewhere. The incarnations sent by Kaal Brahm (Kshar Purush) destroy slaughtered people on the earth by killing them. As an example: - Shri Ramchandra Ji and Shri Krishna Chandra Ji, Shri Parshuram Ji and Shri Nishkalanka Ji (which is yet to come, which will come at the end of Kalyug). All these avatars destroy iniquity only by gross destruction. They try to establish peace by killing the unrighteous. But turbulence increases more than peace. As Shri Ramchandra Ji fought to kill Ravana. Millions of men were killed in the war. In which both the righteous and the unrighteous were killed. Then their wives and small and big children remained, their life became hell. Widows were made victims of their lust by other individuals. The problem of subsistence arose etc.
God Kabir says,
Charo yug mein Mere sant pukaare, kuk kahya Hum hel re |
Heera maanik moti barse ye jag chugta dhel re | |
From time-to-time, in every yuga, God Kabir either Himself descends on earth or sends His pious souls to spread the true spiritual Knowledge, and, hence, ends unrighteousness on earth. For example, God Kabir Himself, Respected Saint Gareebdas Ji, and Respected Shri Nanak Ji. For more information, see: Definition of Incarnation by Saint Rampal Ji.
He considers Shiva as a yogi. He considers Shiva as the first yogi and first Guru. Sadhguru consider Shiva invoking him with a strange mix of intimacy and impersonality, he brings Shiva alive in a tantalising variety of ways – as ‘emptiness’, as ‘that which is not’, as ‘the freedom of the uncreated’; as ‘the first yogi and the first guru’; and as fellow-conspirator, as an enigmatic ‘fifty percent partner’. He says, “In the yogic culture, Shiva is not known as a god, but as the first guru or the Adi Guru. He is the Adi Yogi or the first yogi. Out of his realization, he became ecstatic and danced all over the mountains or sat absolutely still. He was constantly into bouts of stillness and bouts of mad dancing. All the gods who saw him saw something was happening to him that they themselves did not know. Suddenly, heaven felt like a bad place, because this guy is having such a good time! They felt, ‘We are missing out on something.’ When they finally got him to teach the method, Shiva expounded various types of yoga depending on the level of preparedness of the person who was sitting in front of him.”
- The first part of Shiva’s teaching was to Parvati, his wife. It was taught in a certain intimacy. In great detail, and in very gentle ways, Shiva expounded the ways of yoga to Devi.
- The second set of yogic teachings was expounded to the Sapta Rishis, or the first seven sages.
We have given many names to this energy, many forms also. One important aspect of Shiva is ‘Shambho’. Normally, Shambho, or that aspect of this root energy, is worshipped only by people who are on the spiritual path, because the word ‘Shambho’ means ‘the auspicious one.’ The most auspicious thing that can happen to you is to realize yourself, is to reach the highest within yourself. We think, unfortunately, that getting married is auspicious; getting a promotion is auspicious; building a new house is auspicious… The most auspicious thing that can happen to you in your life is that you reach the peak within yourself.
At Isha, the energy of Shambho has been very dominant. In that form we are able to call him down to us here, very easily. In that form, he seems to respond to us much better than any other form. There is a very unfortunate tradition right now which says you should not keep Shiva in your house. house. It is right; you should never keep Shiva in your house; you have to keep him in your heart. Keeping him in your house is of no use. If you have the courage, you carry him in your heart. Locking him up in the pooja room won’t work, because you can’t lock him up. One reason why this has been said is that this energy is towards your dissolution; this energy is for you to reach your highest peak. This energy is not for begging; this energy is not for getting a little more advantage out of life. This energy is only for those people who are seeking to reach the very peak of their consciousness. If you are only concerned about getting a little more advantage out of life, maybe we can create many other smaller deities, smaller aspects of life, but not Mahadeva, not Shambho. If you go to the highest, ultimate power in existence, you must also be going with the petition for the highest possibility. You cannot be going with small things to the big man. So that’s why they told you, don’t keep him in your house. If you are limiting yourself to small things in life, don’t keep Shiva in your house. But if you are seeking the highest, you should.

Conclusion: In this section, what you have read, you may feel that Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev Ji is talking about the true form of Shiv Ji. But if you read more of his knowledge on Shiva, you will come to know that Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev Ji considers Shiva Ji as formless i.e. ‘shoonya’. He believes that all creation is born out of nothing and will end on zero(shoonya). He thinks that the whole creation is born of Shiva (shoonya) and will end in it or will disappear in Shiva(shoonya). This shows that Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev doesn't know the truth about Shiva. He confused himself and his followers.
Lord Shiva is one of the three main gods in the Hindu Trinity. He is known as the destroyer and his quality is "Tamguna". His wife is goddess Parvati. Lord Shiva is known to reside at the Kailash Mountain in his loka. In Shrimad Devi Mahapurana, he himself confesses that he takes birth and dies. His real Way of Worship is available with Saint Rampal Ji alone. For more information, see: Shiva explained by Saint Rampal Ji.
In this article, we learned how little knowledge does Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev have about spirituality. He could be a good businessman, but he cannot be counted as a Saint. Saint Rampal Ji says that those who become spiritual guru are virtuous souls. They are bound to get success in whatever field they enter. But, when they enter into being a guru, they destroy their virtues along with their own human life and the human lives of all of their followers because they don’t have any spiritual knowledge nor are they authorized to become a guru. In this way, they become the biggest hindrance in the attainment of Salvation of the devotee society. Only God Kabir can be the Satguru or the Saints He sends as His Incarnation. Currently, only Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj Ji is the Incarnation of God Kabir. Recognize Him and make your human life successful.
