He was first at the Global Education Skills Forum in Atlantis Hotel in the morning. After a change of ensemble, at 2.30pm sharp, he appeared at a wedding hall in Barsha for a talk on "Life Audit", presented by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India UAE. And later in the evening, he was set to appear at Roda Al Murooj Hotel in financial Centre for three hours of a "mind elevating and soul searching endeavour".
Minutes into his afternoon session, Sadhguru said he was told this is the largest overseas assembly of Indian chartered accountants. "In a country where there is no tax, what the hell are you doing?," he asked. And so, he received his first hall-full round of applause and laughter.
Occasion appropriately, he mentioned 'audit' and 'accounting' several times, even the odd mention of balance sheets, and the 7.3 billion people on the planet who need joy.”
