SADHGURU ON VIRAT KOHLI
With more than three million subscribers on YouTube, Sadhguru is one of India’s most popular spiritual teachers. Among his many interests, he is a big fan of both cricket and the sport’s greatest living player in Kohli.
Sadhguru — who sees a lot of the legendary Garfield Sobers in Kohli — thinks that if he can harness his passions properly he can continue to elevate his already tremendous stature on the cricket pitch.

The understanding and implementation of the knowledge in this book will change your whole perspective and life. Believe in the divine and keep marching on doing good deeds 😇#onelove#begrateful#helponeanother
While it is unknown if Kohli will ever find time to take instruction from Sadhguru, he does foster a spiritual drive and like so many seekers discovered Paramahansa Yogananda’s timeless classic, Autobiography of a Yogi, to be instrumental in laying the groundwork.
Yogananda was a revered yogi who emigrated to the United States from India in the 1920s and attracted a worldwide following teaching from his new home in Southern California. His earthly remains are interred at Forest Lawn Memorial in Glendale.
VIRAT KOHLI’S HIT RECORDS
Whatever Kohli is studying, it’s working. The IPL’s all-time leading scorer, is also the only batsman in history to average over 50 in Tests, ODIs and T20Is simultaneously. In October of 2018, he became the tenth cricketer ever to score three successive centuries in ODIs.
