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.
