Isha Foundation and biz

I just came across a blog post by Vinitha on Isha Foundation.

ஈஷா யோகா மையமும் வியாபாரத்தனமும்

Isha Yoga guys are very money minded. For most of the things they don't give bills, it is only donation, without accounting. Tough to understand the biz model, of these so called GOD Men!

I hope someone from government, audits them.

My two takes,

Their website is good for biz. It drives users (visitors) to them, and ensures there is enough "meat" to make them suck it on a regular day and tempt to visit the foothills of Velliangiri (Coimbatore) for the course and spend tons of cash.


  1. I have heard about this before. I even asked about going there and staying with family, but heard from a blogger that they ripoff at 8000 per night.

  2. Ramesh, they even take care of foreigners very well. I am told when I visited there, lots of Nigerians (scamsters?) are staying there with expired visa's. Even the police should round up.

  3. Thanks for the link Raju. your blog has many interesting posts.

  4. At Isha yoga centre, they are charging only Rs. 400 per day for 2 persons including food. Even in small towns, you have to spend more amt for these type of facility. Why Ramesh behaving with so much prejudice? One must be careful when critisizing others.

  5. OK Shankar, give the contact person there. Feel free to mail me @ raju.n.sundaram (gmail) I am planning to visit sometime soon. My mother also wanted to go. So if they give a room and food for Rs 400/- for us, I will assume that Jaggi Vasudev, has some powers and bless me with Rs 1 crore salary job.

  6. Dear Raju, You can contact 0422-2515470 and you can also book the room for yourself. I enquired this week also, the room rent is same ie Rs. 400 per day for 2 persons with food.

    As jaggi always says, "Getting good job is your business. God gave you brain and limbs. Now it is your turn to use it." Good luck!
