Our Inspiration

Our Founder - His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankarji

The only true security that can be found in this world lies in giving love.

- says Sri Sri Ravishankarji, Founder of The Art of Living Foundation.

His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankarji fondly known as "Guruji" by his millions of followers, He is a universally revered spiritual and humanitarian leader. His vision of a violence-free, stress-free society through the reawakening of human values has inspired millions to broaden their spheres of responsibility and work towards the betterment of the world.

In 1981, Guruji established the Art of Living, an educational and humanitarian Non-Governmental Organisation that works in special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations. Present in over 140 countries, it formulates and implements lasting solutions to conflicts and issues faced by individuals, communities and nations. In 1997, Guruji founded the International Association for Human Values (IAHV) to foster human values and lead sustainable development projects.


Guruji has reached out to an estimated 300 million people worldwide through personal interactions, public events, teachings, the Art of Living workshops and humanitarian initiatives. He has united people of different traditions and faiths into a spiritual communion across the length and breadth of India. Amidst various threats to India by the misguided Naxalite and Jehadi forces, there is one name that emerges as a universally accepted ambassador of peace.

He has brought to the masses, ancient practices which were traditionally kept exclusive and has designed many self-development techniques. These practices can easily be integrated into daily life to calm the mind and instill confidence and enthusiasm. These techniques have helped thousands of people to overcome depression and violent and suicidal tendencies. One of his most unique offerings to the world is the Sudarshan Kriya, a powerful breathing technique that facilitates physical, mental, emotional and social well-being. Guruji travels to nearly 40 countries every year, exemplifying his call to globalize wisdom. His universal message is that love and wisdom can prevail over hatred and distress..
