The two leaders met in Rome, where the yogi made a stop as part of a journey to raise awareness of climate change in the world. “His is not a fundamentalist environmentalism, but a defense of the environment and the soil through conscious agriculture”, commented the forceist.
On Friday 1 April, Forza Italia leader Antonio Tajani met Sadhguru, a well-known Indian mystic and yogi in Rome, who is making a 100-day motorcycle trip to raise awareness of desertification and climate change in the world. In recent days he explained the reasons that lead him to cross 26 countries: “I’m not a scientist, I’m not an environmentalist. I belong to the earth and I know that there is a soil crisis. So I left India to meet heads of State, politicians, leaders, scientists and influencers. I would like them to understand that we cannot tackle climate change without considering the health of the soil, and if we are to make a significant breakthrough within the next 10-15 years, we must address this problem now. “
“Great spirituality at the service of the earth”
Sadhguru is 64 and has 7.6 million followers on Instagram. Founder of the non-profit organization Isha Foundation, he is the author of several books and has been involved in initiatives to raise awareness on the environment and water scarcity for years. “We talked about the soil crisis, the importance of agriculture, the solutions to fight climate change,” Tajani wrote on Facebook after the meeting. “I greatly appreciated his great spirituality at the service of the earth. His is not a fundamentalist environmentalism, but a defense of the environment and the soil through conscious agriculture, at the center of which is man, the future of land and job protection “. Tajani said the mystic struck him “positively for his pragmatic vision” and thanked him for the meeting. “I hope to see him soon in Brussels too,” he added.
