Coimbatore (Tamil Nadu) [India], May 1 (ANI): An abstract painting by Sadhguru, Founder, Isha Foundation titled 'To Live Totally!' was sold out for Rs 4.14 crore for the 5 x 5 ft canvas.

The money raised will be used to fund Isha's coronavirus pandemic relief efforts in rural Tamil Nadu around Isha Yoga Center.

Recently, Sadhguru announced that whoever donates the maximum amount for the #BeattheVirus fund, will get the painting. He added that smaller copies of the painting will also be available for buyers.

#BeattheVirus is Isha's on-ground campaign to prevent the pandemic from entering the villages of Thondamuthur block which has over 2 lakh residents.
