Poster - Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
“Love is not an emotion. It is your very existence.”
Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is a humanitarian leader, spiritual teacher and ambassador of peace.
He seems to have head-start with TM and Maharishi Mahesh, but he had a calling to help the poor and common people - and he did. He was very brave to abandon a large scale movement and start from scratch!
His vision of a stress-free, violence-free society has united millions of people the world over through service projects and the courses of The Art of Living.
Born in 1956 in Southern India, Gurudev was a gifted child. By the age of four, he was able to recite the Bhagavad Gita and was often found in meditation.
His first teacher was Sudhakar Chaturvedi, a scholar, who had a long-standing association with Mahatma Gandhi.
Gurudev holds degrees in Vedic literature and physics.
After graduation, Shankar travelled with his second teacher, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, giving talks and arranging conferences on Vedic science, and setting up Transcendental Meditation and Ayurveda centres.
Shankar seems to have seen the great power of an international presense with Maharishi and his TM, but next we see a big change in his outlook:
Quoting Shankar: “It (relationship with Maharishi) was very good, nice, loving and cordial... but suddenly, I took leave from all that and changed to village-level persons. I travelled to small and remote villages.
My heart was more with them. The sewa (service) aspect was not part of that (the TM) movement. That movement was more intellectual, based on meditation. I was more interested in sewa.” Source: https://scroll.in/article/805429/how-ravi-shankar-broke-with-maharishi-mahesh-yogi-to-becoming-sri-sri
As a spiritual teacher, Gurudev has rekindled the traditions of yoga and meditation and offered them in a form that is relevant to the 21st century.
Apart from reviving ancient wisdom, Gurudev has created new techniques for personal and social transformation.
These include the Sudarshan Kriya® which has helped millions of people find relief from stress and discover inner reservoirs of energy and peace in daily life.
In a mere 34 years, his programs and initiatives have touched the lives of over 370 million people in 154 countries.
A Figure of Peace As an ambassador of peace, Gurudev plays a key role in conflict resolution and spreads his vision of non-violence at public forums and gatherings world-wide. Regarded as a neutral figure with a sole agenda of peace.
