Will Smith (right) was spotted in public for the first time after slapping Chris Rock (left) at the 2022 Oscar Awards.
Smith was spotted greeting fans at a private airport in Mumbai, India, three weeks after a single-handedly destroying his A-list career.
A source tells PEOPLE that Smith is in India on a spiritual cleansing journey after assaulting the comedian in front of millions of viewers on March 27.
The source said Smith traveled to India to meet with spiritual guru Jagadish “Jaggi” Vasudev, also known as Sadhguru.
According to Black EnterpriseSadhguru is the owner of a non-profit spiritual foundation called Isha.
Smith and his family first met Sadhguru in 2020 in Los Angeles, MEAWW News reports.
“I wanted my family to meet spiritual people, to start interacting with people who are not hooked on the material world,” he said at the time.
Smith documented one of his meetings with the 65-year-old guru at his Los Angeles residence in 2020.
In an Instagram video posted on Smith’s IG Stories, Sadhguru is seen arriving to Smith’s home on a motorcycle, as Will and his daughter, Willow, greet him.
“In any area of life, those who are most successful are always the most miserable people because they get to the top of the world and the top of the world doesn’t feel like the top of the world,” Sadhguru told Smith in the video.
“What happened yesterday they’re suffering today. Are you suffering life or your memory? You’re just suffering your memory,” he said, adding, “What may happen tomorrow you already suffer. You’re suffering your imagination!”
Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, are reportedly divorced after 25 years of marriage.
Chris Rock, whose fame has soared to new heights since The Slap, said he won’t talk about the assault unless he is paid.
He allegedly consulted with attorneys about his options.
