How I met Sadhguru? Part - 3

If you have missed my earlier posts on this series, links are here: Part-1 ,  Part-2

Yes! I have arrived at Isha Yoga Center, Coimbatore. My mind that time: "What are there? How it will be? Little afraid and skeptical" It is around 6'o clock in the morning. Myself and my cousin brother was entering Dhyanalingam campus. To enter into Dhyanalingam campus, you have to climb up few(3/4) stairs and climb down few stairs. We both climbed up the stairs and stood there. I was looking around.

My cousin shooked me and told "Annae! Anga paarunga, Sadhguru varraaru (Brother! See there, Sadhguru is coming)". Yes! He walked towards us while talking with a foreigner. Bowed to him with hands together (Namaskaram)! He also did to us. When he saw me with his eyes. It is like a super sharp sword cuts you into pieces! We have passed them.

I was pursuing my Masters at College of Engineering, Guindy. In the year 2007, Isha Gramotsavam was conducted at my college grounds. There were hoardings around college of a man with white beard and turban displaying that there will be sathsang at 6 PM.  Little background about my mind set that time : To the core I hate all these saamiyaars and gurus. When somebody gave me the book "Kadhavai Thira Kaatru Varattum" by Nithyananda. I have read one page and never looked back at the book. I have understood that the words in that book makes no sense. I clearly know one thing that I dont know anything about god stuffs. But with our brought-up, I have sense to bow down to Gods and pray to them. Background is over.
