Sadhguru chose a life of austerity at the young age of twenty-five years only on 23rd September 1982. He decided to go up to the peak of Chamundi Hill and sat there on a rock and meditated. After a long time, he received a divine and truly spiritual experience. He felt like a different person altogether and began to see the world in a very different light. He could sense a deep connection with all of nature and its creations. Though it felt a short duration of time, he was, in fact, sitting there for many hours, following which he returned. Six weeks after that experience, he decided to leave his business for his friend to handle and began to travel extensively to gain a deeper insight into this mystical experience. Following more than a year of traveling and meditating, Sadhguru decided to become a yoga teacher and share his experiences. In1983, he commenced his very first yoga class in the city of Mysore and got seven participants.
