Jagadish "Jaggi" Vasudev (Sadhguru) with Cricket legend Brian Charles Lara share a light moment on the golf course in Trinidad and Tobago

India’s Jagadish “Jaggi” Vasudev (Sadhguru), 64, has made a name globally for his unquestionable love for yoga, spirituality and the “save the soil” campaign.

On Wednesday, August 3, 2022, Sadhguru played a round of golf with cricket legend, Brian Charles Lara at Port of Spain St Andrews Golf course, in Trinidad and Tobago.

World over, golf courses are known green belt confines that conserve the nature as they harbor different species of flora and fauna as well as water bodies (streams, rivers and lakes).

For starters, Sadhguru has been teaching yoga in southern India since 1982.

In 1992, he established the Isha Foundation near Coimbatore, which operates an ashram and yoga centre that carry out educational activities.

Some of his outspoken annual events include; lunar, Thaipusam, guru Purnima, Guru Purnima with Devi, Mahashivratri, Navratri and Yaksha.

Sadhuguru received the Padma Vibhushan, the second-highest civilian award from the Government of India, in 2017 in recognition of his contribution to the field of spirituality.
