Psalm 82:6
"I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High."
John 1:12-13
"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of
the will of man, but of God."

I took the initial Isha program, and the thing is that I've been a christian all my life, hard core christian actually. I tried everything that Christianity prescribed, but always it never worked. I looked closely at what Christianity promises and says is the goal (see above). Nothing worked. Worse, almost everyone around me at church simply could not even make it LOOK like they wanted to be there.
Finally I saw that this is not it. I started to look at myself and inward to see what was even possible in this creation. I asked for guidance and it came, this was years before Isha.
After Isha came into my life (at just the right time) now I can see plainly that what the bible verses above says is 100% possible for me.
Sadhguru is the most capable person alive right now who can ASSIST people to realize what they, who they are. I say assist because I see clearly that it cannot be forced on you, you have to make it happen for yourself.

Isha Foundation offers meditation programs as well as social and educational programs. They have been founded by Sadhguru, a yogi, mystic, and humanitarian - who not only imparts yoga to all willing to learn but who is also a talented writer and poet, having spoken in numerous forums (TED, United Nations, World Economic Forum). The yoga programs run at Isha are held in the classical tradition - with teachers who have spent 5-7 years with Sadhguru, before being allowed to teach. Much care is taken to ensure that yoga is transmitted properly. Also, this is an organization run exclusively by volunteers - I am amazed above and beyond by their success and dedication and I highly recommend all of their programs. You can also visit the Isha Institute of Inner Sciences in Tennessee or the Isha Ashram in India, near Coimbatore.

BEWARE. Isha foundation may be a cult. Their teachings are commendable (they are actually repackaged buddhist principles), but they operate as a cult. Before you join Isha, or if you are a member of Isha, please inform yourself about cults and the way the operate. It is VERY difficult to realize that you are in a cult, but remember, it if looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it is probably a duck. Of course, Isha's first statement is that 'perhaps it is not really a duck' ... which is a classic strategy used by cults to avoid any labeling by confusing the issue with distractions and strawman arguments. Be very careful. If you are interested in Budhism, meditation, and yoga, it is better if you learn it directly, rather than through Isha.
