The Meltdown Continues…

  • Calling Arnab Goswami a government mouthpiece and Kangana Ranaut as insidious
  • Name-calling India’s entire legal system and trying to defame India’s Supreme Court over an issue of national security
  • Painting a saint label on the Jai Bhim movie, that sparked a national outrage for falsely and deliberately projecting an entire community in the bad light
  • Supporting Varavara Rao, a person who is arrested for instigating the 018 Bhima Koregaon violence and has been arrested under the Unlawful Activities Act on the charge of plotting to assassinate Indian prime minister
  • Legitimizing England’s stealing of the Kohinoor diamond from India
  • The NL article had said that the Isha center is in a forest area and in an elephant corridor. Recently the Tamilnadu Government, supposedly an atheist and anti-spirituality regime, had cleared Isha’s name stating the center is NOT in any forest area or elephant corridor.
  • The NL article said that the Isha foundation had no HACA approvals. But HACA did approve Isha’s constructions post-facto
  • The NL article said that Isha’s school promoting Indian culture is unauthorized and fell flat on its face when proven otherwise
  • The NL article demeans Isha’s Mahashivratri celebrations by falsely implicating it as the reason for increased man-animal conflict in the area whereas the National Green Tribunal rebutted its claims through their own investigation & found no faults with the event
  • The NL article says that Sadhguru rose to power because of politics whereas it is clearly proven that he has worked with all governments including the atheist & communist governments of various states for the social welfare work his Foundation is doing across India and that people genuinely see his worth elevating him to a certain pedestal.
  • As for CAA, it is well-proven by now that the anti-CAA protests in India were a funded attempt to get a particular community against the BJP government, with false information spread to the public.
  • On the spiritual front, Sadhguru’s thought is that adhering to Dharma has to come out of the personal experience of transcending human limitations and by considering oneself as a mother to the whole world. Can there be a more liberal thought than this?
  • Sadhguru’s Isha Vidhya schools have more than 5000 rural children in TN and AP studying in scholarships, providing them FREE, very high quality, English medium, computer-based education for over two decades now.
  • Isha’s rural health clinics and rural mobile vehicles have been treating thousands of patients in surrounding villages for free. So far, more than 5 million people have been treated for various medical disorders free of charge across 7500+ villages.
  • During Isha’s biggest spiritual events of Mahashivratri, Guru Pournami, etc. lakhs of people are offered free food by the Volunteers, irrespective of their caste, race or gender.
  • Gramotsavam, the rural olympics conducted by Isha Foundation, has witnessed rural folk coming together for sports crossing the chasms of caste and religion, to erase the boundaries of humanity that kept them separated for generations.
  • The Farmers Producer Organization (FPO) wing of Project Green Hands has changed the lives of 1000+ farmers involved in it in Coimbatore.
  • Isha Crafts is an amazing community business model where craft products are made by tribals and rural folk trained by the Isha Foundation in a small-scale / cottage industry model. Many might not know this — the dresses that most people at Isha wear come from Isha Crafts primarily.
  • Whenever disasters have stuck in South India like the 2004 Tsunami, Gaja Cyclone, Chennai Floods, etc. Isha Foundation volunteers have provided extensive financial, food, and medical support to vulnerable populations.
  • So far more than 90000 people across rural Tamilnadu have been taught Yoga for free through Isha’s Action For Rural Rejuvenation efforts. Apart from this, millions of people’s lives have been changed through the free online yoga offerings of UpaYoga, Isha Kriya, etc. by Sadhguru.
  • The Isha Yoga Center where more than 3000 people are living. Everybody has the same rules. There are no rich or poor at the Isha ashram and everyone is treated the same way, irrespective of their social background.
  • The Adiyogi Shiva statue or the meditative space of Dhyanalinga is among the only few places in India where no social / gender / racial / caste discrimination of any sort is followed. People from all walks of life come here and benefit from yogic practices they can learn.
  • Sadhguru has always encouraged democratic voting and has NEVER EVER asked his disciples to side with any political party. He works with all the party Governments across India when it comes to Government policymaking.
