It was all about heartfelt conversations, thought-provoking poetry and some hearty laughs when spiritual leader Sadhguru met up with Will Smith at the Hollywood star's home. On a 10,000-mile motorcycle journey through the United States, the founder of Isha Foundation stopped by to visit the "Men in Black" star as part of the trip.
"Sadhguru is in town. I have been following him for a while. He wrote a wonderful book called "Inner Engineering". I want my family to meet spiritual people, to start interacting with people who are not hooked on the material world," Will Smith said in a behind-the-scenes video shared by Sadhguru on Instagram. The video, also shared by Will Smith, has since then been viral on social media and has views over 7 million and counting.
Sadhguru posted a few pictures on social media between himself and Will Smith. "Will, it was a pleasure to spend some time with you and your wonderful family. May your Sangha be strong and Dharma be your guide."
"Do not surrender your wonderfulness no matter who does what. Let others do whatever they want," was Sadhguru's advice for the actor and his family.
Will Smith's daughter Willow Smith, a talented performer herself, shared an intense picture with Sadhguru, with her hands folded in reverence. "Helping me through my existential crisis, INFINITE GRATITUDE for this moment with this spectacular human being," she wrote in the caption.
Sadhguru is on a bike journey across the United States to discover the cultures and contributions of Indigenous Peoples in the country. In this edition of the 'Of Motorcycles and a Mystic', which kicked off on September 20, he rode through Illinois, Missouri, Wyoming, South Dakota, Utah and further.
On Indigenous Peoples’ Day, celebrated on October 12, Sadhguru spent the occasion talking with Taboo, a rapper from the Grammy-winning musical group Black Eyed Peas, about the history and contributions of Native Americans.
Hollywood actor Will Smith also took part in the Ganga aarti at Haridwar last year. The actor shared clicks of his journey on social media. "My Grandmother used to say, ‘God Teaches through Experience’. Travelling to India and experiencing the colours, people and natural beauty has awakened a new understanding of myself, my Art & the Truths of the world."
