"Human life is a combination of both matter and spirit." -- Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

While the human body is marvel in engineering and design, it needs the life energy to function. Whatever field of medicine we may be from, we work directly with this life energy. The practice of meditation not only helps one to understand the nature of this life force but also eliminates stress from within one's own system. Both these factors are invaluable in the art of healing and medicine.

His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar 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, Gurudev 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, Gurudev founded the International Association for Human Values (IAHV) to foster human values and lead sustainable development projects.

Gurudev 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.
