Feature - Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev
The Isha Foundation is a non-profit, spiritual organization near Coimbatore, India, founded in 1992 by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, a yogi and contemporary Guru. In February 2017 Raghu Rai photographed the consecration of The Adiyogi Shiva statue, a 112-foot-tall statue of Shiva located at Coimbatore. Designed by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, it was built by the foundation and weighs around 500 tons. Sadhguru said that the statue is for inspiring and promoting yoga, and is named Adiyogi, which means "the first yogi," because the god Shiva is known as the creator of yoga in Hindu tradition.
