A post is being circulated on social media claiming it as a message from the ‘Isha Foundation’ head and Spiritual leader Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, to sustain and cure the COVID-19 virus. This purported message of Sadhguru states, “The only way to keep any kind of illness or virus or flu away is to not talk about it and it will dissipate itself. The more we talk about it, the more it becomes active in our vibration”. In the message, Sadhguru explained the negative impact of coronavirus fears on the body.  Let’s verify the claim made in the post.

The archived version of the post can be seen here.

Claim: Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev’s message to sustain and cure the COVID-19 virus.

Fact: This purported message from Jaggi Vasudev is a fake one. Isha Foundation through a tweet clarified that a message about dealing with the Coronavirus fears was falsely attributed to him on social media. Hence, the claim made in the post is FALSE.

When we searched for the details of the claim made in the post, we could not find any news article reporting this message from ‘Isha Foundation’ founder, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev. If Sadhguru had made such a statement, several news websites would have published articles on it.

Isha Foundation through a tweet clarified that the message about dealing with the Coronavirus fears was falsely attributed to Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev on social media. Isha Foundation informed people that the message and quotes within these posts are not from him.

On several occasions, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev asked people to act wisely to successfully navigate the COVID-19 situation. On the occasion of New Year 2021, Sadhguru gave a message to people that ‘Human ability to respond rather than react is the solution, not only to duck the pandemic but to create new possibilities of a more civilised and sustainable world’. In his recent interactions, Sadhguru did not specifically mention the negative impacts of panic in COVID-19 patients.  

Earlier, when similar posts mentioning the impact of positive vibrations on the COVID-19 virus shared on social media, FACTLY published fact-check articles on those claims. They can be seen here and here.

To sum it up, this purported message of Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev on dealing with the Coronavirus fears is a fake one.
