Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is a global humanitarian, spiritual leader, and peace envoy, who has been teaching breath-based meditation techniques for health and well-being for more than 40 years. His flagship breathing technique, the Sudarshan Kriya (SKY breath) is the center-piece of the Art of Living courses. His approach blends ancient Vedic wisdom with modern sensibility for a new paradigm of leadership and living – a stress-free, violence-free society.
Through Gurudev’s programs, millions of people worldwide have found peace and resilience in the face of adversity, learning not only how to excel in their own lives, but also how to become powerful agents for social change.
Gurudev has thus inspired a wave of volunteerism and service, resulting in the growth of one of the largest grassroots volunteer-based organizations in the world, with more than 30,000 teachers and over one million volunteers engaged in service projects in 180 countries.
Standing for the Gandhian principles of non-violence, Gurudev has also mediated and progressed negotiations for peace in conflict-stricken areas such as Sri Lanka, Iraq, Venezuela, and Colombia, where he is credited for playing a central role in ending the violent 52-year conflict between FARC and the Colombian government.
He has received 38 governmental awards, including the highest civilian honors in Colombia, Mongolia and Paraguay, as well as the Padma Vibhushan, India’s highest annual civilian honor. 24 universities have awarded him honorary doctorates for his humanitarian and conflict resolution initiatives.
