"Every society needs individuals who will go on planting mango trees without thinking whether they will get to eat the fruit or not"

Yogi, mystic & visionary humanitarian, Sadhguru is the inspiration behind Isha’s social and environmental initiatives.

Probing, passionate and provocative, insightful, logical and unfailingly witty, Sadhguru’s talks have earned him the reputation of a speaker and opinion-maker of international renown. With speaking engagements that take him around the world, he is widely sought after by prestigious global forums to address issues as diverse as human rights, business values, and social, environmental and existential issues. He has been a delegate to the United Nations Millennium World Peace Summit, a member of the World Council of Religious and Spiritual Leaders and Alliance for New Humanity, a special invitee to the Australian Leadership Retreat, Tallberg Forum, Indian Economic Summit 2005-2008, as well as a regular at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

PGH was Sadhguru’s response to the huge deforestation and environmental degradation happening in the state of Tamil Nadu. He saw that nurturing two saplings over the next 10 years was a task that even the poorest of the poor could do and that the rich and the resourceful had the ability to do much more. He engineered PGH so that every single person’s simple involvement and personal action could make something truly beautiful, wonderful and timely happen, without placing any additional financial burden upon the state.
