The post was picked up and shared and liked widely and attracted several comments, an Isha release said on Monday.

Last year, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev was invited by DiCaprio’s foundation for their Earth Sense event.

Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev announced the launch of ‘Cauvery Calling’ in July with an aim to revitalise the dying river which is the source of livelihoods, irrigation and drinking water for 84 million people, the release said.

The movement will support lakhs of farmers in the Cauvery basin to plant 242 crore trees in an economic plan that is expected to revive not just the river but the fortunes of farmers in the basin as well, the release further said.
