Indian spiritual leader Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev has undergone brain surgery due to internal bleeding, it has been reported. Doctors at the Apollo Hospital in New Delhi said he had shown steady progress after the operation on Sunday, and his vitals were getting back on track.

A team of doctors conducted an emergency brain surgery within a few hours of his admission to relieve the bleeding in the skull. Sadhguru was weaned off the ventilator post-surgery.

The doctors said he had ignored his condition for a long time due to his commitment to his work. He told the doctors that he had not missed a meeting in 40 years and even walked out of the hospital without informing anyone, as he did not want to cancel his appointment.

The 66-year-old spiritual leader had suffered bleeding under his skull twice, and the doctors suggested an operation but delayed it due to his schedule.

The doctor said they had to operate on him immediately after admission on March 17 as the swelling had changed the position of his brain and he was getting confused and drowsy.

On a mission to save the world’s soil from extinction, the Save Soil movement, founded by Sadhguru, came to Bahrain in May 2022.

As part of his ‘Journey to Save Soil’ from London to the southern tip of India, Sadhguru stopped in Manama from May 14–15. Spanning 30,000 kilometres and 27 countries, he undertook a 100-day journey as a lone motorcyclist to address the soil crisis by bringing together people from around the world to stand up for soil health and supporting leaders to institute national policies to Save Soil. 

The visit culminated with a large-scale public event in Manama that attracted hundreds, to raise awareness about the importance of soil conservation. An event took place at the Bahrain National Museum in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture.

In the week before he arrived in Bahrain, Sadhguru addressed leaders from 195 nations at the 15th session of the Conference of Parties (COP15) to the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) as the keynote speaker. COP15 will be held in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, from May 9 to 20. The theme for the session is “Land, Life, and Legacy: From Scarcity to Prosperity.”
