ISHA (Institute for the Study of Human Awareness) is a non-profit educational organization. Often referred to as ISHA, our organization was founded in the 1960’s at Harvard University by Ishwar C. Puri. ISHA’s purpose is to provide educational materials and guidance to individuals and other organizations interested in a better understanding of our human capacity.

ISHA resources include more than forty years of audio recordings of lectures, meetings, workshops, and special events by Ishwar Puri. The recordings have been transcribed into books in PDF format and YouTube video presentations. These resources are designed to encourage individuals to “Know Thyself” much in the manner of the Socratic theme, and to develop both our human potential and spiritual pursuits. In this way we can better understand ourselves, others, and the world in which we live.

ISHA (Institute for the Study of Human Awareness) is incorporated in the State of Minnesota and is governed by Articles of
Incorporation. ISHA has a ten-member Board of Directors that governs the organization.
