Inclusive Business; The Yogic Method

Steve Jobs Success 




One man, one vision and the world will never be the same. Of course Steve Jobs did not work all by him self, but he definitely was the spine of the Apple Inc.

A modern engineering miracle

Because of the world's growing population, it comes natural to reduce, reuse and recycle. For example the basic recycling process is very common in many US households - plastic bottles, aluminum cans, glass etc. But some ideas grow much wilder - for instance the Janicki's Omniprocessor which will soon provide drinking water to thousands of people in need!
What exactly is Janicki's Omniprocessor? Here is what Bill Gates says about it:


"I watched the piles of feces go up the conveyer belt and drop into a large bin. They made their way through the machine, getting boiled and treated. A few minutes later I took a long taste of the end result: a glass of delicious drinking water."

An insignificant thread

Albert Einstein


"One cannot help but be in awe when one contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries to comprehend only a little of this mystery every day." -Albert Einstein

SoI New Single: Madhyamavathi





While words have their intellectual appeal, instrumental music can sometimes create an openness that language cannot. Among the many instrumental pieces Sounds of Isha has created to manifest different ambiences, Madhyamavathi is one of the more beautiful ones. The name reflects the raga on which the song is based.

We have also had the fortune of some part-time volunteers, who have contributed to our music. We could use this opportunity to say how Sounds of Isha is not just some small group of people in the ashram but consists of so many meditators all over India and the world, all contributing to the music and connected with the common bond of Sadhguru's Grace.

The flute melody for this piece was composed by one of our meditators. He wanted to offer it to sadhguru and as we worked with it to create a song, we had the fortune of roping in a few more contributors from amongst our volunteers. The result is what you hear.

We had no particular plan as to what ambience to manifest through this song. However, from our experience, we find that it can be soulful, meditative or relaxing–soothing and settling.




Let us know how you experience it!

What should a 20-year-old do in life?

At the threshold of our adult life, there are many things we can choose to do. The only question is how to make the right choice? How do I know I'm choosing the right course of my life? What are the checkpoints to consider? There isn't easy universal answer to this; we are all unique and because of that it takes each one of us to look at it individually.
