We can’t change the direction of the wind, but we can adjust the sails.

Dr. Karan Singh launches YOGAi: Full length launch video

The basis of the book is to use Yoga as a gateway to yourself. In other words, to see it as ONE method to connect to your true self. Similarly to see Ai as ONE pathway to understanding exponential technologies in individual and collective contexts. This will help you focus on the intersection of Yoga and Ai which converges at the individual ‘observer’—the human being.

About the Book

YOGAi sets the stage for meaningful dialogue and reflection on the complex interplay between knowledge, faith, and personal identity. Drawing inspiration from the complexities of human existence, it explores the intriguing question of why individuals gravitate towards scientific rationality, particularly as they become more and more educated.

“Western Science is approaching a paradigm shift of unprecedented proportions, one that will change our concepts of reality and of human nature, bridge the gap between ancient wisdom and modern science, and reconcile the differences between Eastern spirituality and Western pragmatism.”

Reviews from happy readers!


A book not for the Yogi. Or for the Techie. An easy to digest handbook.

Yoga can help us strengthen and transform our inner being. Similarly, AI has the potential to transform our engagements and relationships with the external world in ways that we are just beginning to fathom. Hence, exploring the two is not as theoretical as it may first appear to be...

A book with an interesting concept

Raj Supe (Kinkar Vishwashreyananda)

"YOGAI" is a thought-provoking masterpiece that transcends the boundaries of traditional discourse

"Not Aldous Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’, not Alvin Toffler’s ‘Future Shock’, not H G Wells’ ‘Time Machine’, but this book isn’t entirely devoid of elements from all of them. If this were a fiction, it would sell many million copies! In the hardcore world of non-fiction, it's rare to find an article, let alone a book, that successfully navigates from a linear past to an exponential future, seeking convergence between two seemingly disparate ends: cosmic consciousness and the artificial intelligence metaverse...

David W. Gray

A book about living and being thoughtfully in the present moment.

A wide-ranging, expansive collection of thoughts, stories, wisdom and reflection on the nature of being in today’s world. Not a book about AI but a book about living and being fully in the present moment, with all its complexities and implications.


Informed engagement with AI

Sunil Malhotra's YogAI is an acutely relevant and refreshingly honest take on the interaction of humans with artificial intelligence. It is relevant because everyone is affected by AI in very real ways and these are only likely to increase going forward. The book is honest because it does not claim to provide all the answers, but rather gives us helpful...
