Sadhguru Recovering After Emergency Brain Surgery


Spiritual leader and founder of the Isha Foundation, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, recently faced a life-threatening medical crisis that led to emergency surgery. The renowned yogi and mystic had been experiencing severe headaches for several weeks, but his commitment to his schedule and activities kept him from seeking immediate medical attention.

The Medical Situation

On March 14, 2024, Sadhguru arrived in Delhi, where his headache intensified significantly. Concerned about his health, he consulted with Dr. Vinit Suri, Senior Consultant Neurologist at Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals. An urgent MRI revealed a massive brain bleed, which included evidence of both a chronic bleed that had persisted for several weeks and a fresh bleed that occurred more recently.

Refusing to Cancel Commitments

Despite the severity of his condition, Sadhguru remained steadfast in fulfilling his commitments. He continued with his busy schedule, even conducting the MahaShivaratri event on March 8, 2024. On March 15, an MRI confirmed massive bleeding in his brain, yet Sadhguru persisted. He attended the India Today Conclave under the influence of powerful painkillers and sedation.

Emergency Surgery and Recovery

Recognizing the urgency, Sadhguru underwent emergency brain surgery on March 17. The medical team at Apollo Hospital worked tirelessly to address the life-threatening swelling in his brain. Remarkably, Sadhguru’s recovery has exceeded expectations. Dr. Suri expressed amazement at the progress, stating, “We have done what we could, but you are healing yourself. The kind of improvement we are seeing is beyond our expectations. All his brain, body, and vital parameters are normal, and he is making steady progress.”

Lessons from Sadhguru’s Experience

Sadhguru’s unwavering commitment to his responsibilities, even in the face of agonizing symptoms, serves as an inspiration. His determination to honor his commitments, despite the risk to his health, underscores the importance of balance and self-care.

As Sadhguru continues to recover, millions of his followers around the world send their well wishes and prayers for his speedy healing. The spiritual leader’s resilience and dedication remind us all to prioritize our well-being, even amidst our busy lives.
