During the town hall meeting with India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Mark Zuckerberg revealed an interesting fact about him and Steve Jobs that made them successful.

Deeply influenced by the Indian spiritualism in the 70s, Steve Jobs, once a college drop-out used to visit Kainchi Dham Ashram, in Nainital, Uttarakhand.

It is believed that in the Ashram of Neeb Karori (often called Neem Karoli) Baba, Jobs got his enlightenment to build Apple.

Facebook, launched in 2004, had its fair share of dark days during the initial years. It was Steve Jobs, Zuckerberg went to during those hard times. Apparently, he followed most of Job’s advice when his company was going through a rough patch and it might have inspired him to turn into a visionary.

 

The Facebook CEO spent a month in India and spent two days in the Ashram which is a small temple complex on the banks of the Kosi, a river in the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand.

 

This is what he revealed in front of Modi and the whole world:

“…he (Jobs) told me that in order to reconnect with what I believed as the mission of the company I should visit this temple that he had gone to in India early on in his evolution of thinking about what he wanted Apple and his vision of the future to be. So I went and I travelled for almost a month, and seeing people, seeing how people connected, and having the opportunity to feel how much better the world could be if everyone has a strong ability to connect reinforced for me the importance of what we were doing and that is something I’ve always remembered over the last 10 years as we’ve built Facebook.”

 

Though Neeb Karori Baba passed away in 1973, his followers include some well-known personalities, including Hollywood actress Julia Roberts and Larry Brilliant, former director of Google.org.

His ashram went on to transform two unknown faces into billionaires – Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg.

Amazing, isn’t it?
