As per sources, Meta founder Mark Zuckerberg, visited the ashram in 2015 when Facebook (now Meta) was going through a really tough phase. With just a book in his hand, he reached the Ashram. Though he was expected to stay for only one day, he spent two. Do you know who suggested Mark Zuckerberg the visit to the ashram? It was Apple founder Steve Jobs!
