In our COVID-19 state, our entire world is experiencing something this generation has never seen. Never has the current generation experienced a pandemic that has led to economic and social chaos of this magnitude.
No wonder people are scared.

Sadhguru Interview Insights
After wishing British Prime Minister Boris Johnson a quick recovery, Sadhguru focused on analysing the given COVID situation the world finds itself in.
In his simple but philosophical way of speaking, Sadhguru emphasised how every difficult situation we encounter can become an opportunity to learn. We just need to be willing to learn from that situation.
In the case of the coronavirus, our focus has shifted to mortality. With thousands of people dying worldwide from the same malady, it’s easy to think about what really matters.
The Virus of Humanity
Sadhguru goes on to note how we should shift our attention to the virus within ourselves. Perhaps, he says, nature is attempting to teach us a lesson in this virus.
Sadhguru even considers the thought that this physical illness is bringing to light an illness that existed before the outbreak. He’s not surprised by how humanity is reacting. We’ve been sick for a long time, after all, just not with this particular virus.
When we recognise we are going to die eventually from one thing or another, we change the way we live. This virus, according to Sadhguru, makes us realise our mortality and leads us to live better lives.
Death: An Inside Story
Sadhguru’s book Death: An Inside Story has come out at a perfect time when a virus is making people think about death. Sadhguru books have the potential to make individuals contemplate life beyond death and the value of taking a breath right now.
Sadhguru talks about his book and how it has a significant bearing on people’s reaction to the virus right now. What people experience right now in isolation will ultimately affect their outlook and behaviour.
What Coronavirus Can Teach Us
Sadhguru winds this interview down with what he began with: how this virus can teach us things about ourselves. He talks about what he’s been doing with his time at home and how others can use their time at home as well.
Many of us are looking for some kind of guidance during this unprecedented time. Few people alive today have lived through a pandemic that has shut the world down as this one has. Yogis like Sadhguru can offer some helpful insight that will help us all move past this time.
