What Sadhguru said in Calicut

Sadhguru, Yogi, Mystic and New York Times bestselling author was in Kozhikode to inaugurate the Kerala Literature Festival.
 
“It is wonderful to be in Kozikode. It has been 30 years since I passed through this town. I see a tremendous amount of pride in this town which I very much appreciate.”
Describing the growing important of literary festivals, Sadhguru added, “I am glad to see that literary festivals are picking up like never before. Many young people are moving from 140 characters to literature. Language is an intricate and phenomenal expression of human mind and literature is a wonderful expression of it.”
Sadhguru was also in conversation with journalist, TV anchor and filmmaker Sashi Kumar and actor Manju Warrier. Sashi Kumar launched Sadhguru’s latest New York Times, Washington Post and Amazon bestselling book – Inner Engineering- a Yogi’s Guide to Joy.

Sadhguru was conferred with the Padma Vibhushan, India’s second highest civilian honour, last month for his distinguished contribution in the field of spirituality.
The Inner Engineering book offers the reader a sophisticated guide to self-empowerment and a means to create a framework of inner balance and wellbeing, based on the science of yoga.

While describing the book, Sadhguru explained, “My aim in this book is to help make joy your constant companion. To make that happen, this book offers you not a sermon, but a science; not a teaching, but a technology; not a precept, but a path. All our other titles are inspirational. This book is transformational.”

Named one of India’s 50 most influential people, Sadhguru is a Yogi, Mystic, a New York Times & Washington Post bestselling author & poet. Sadhguru has been a delegate to the United Nations World Headquarters as the primary speaker on International Day of Yoga in 2016, and addressed the Indian Economic Summit 2005-2008, World Economic Forum in Davos, and the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit. Further, some of the most renowned education institutes and universities across the world including Oxford, Stanford, Harvard, Yale, Wharton and MIT, to name a few, have hosted his talks. Three decades ago, Sadhguru founded Isha Foundation: a non-profit human-service organization, supported by over seven million volunteers in over 250 centers worldwide.
