More About the Author
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is a renowned spiritual leader and global humanitarian whose mission of uniting the world into a violence-free, stress-free global family has inspired millions of people to broaden their share of responsibility and serve society.
Sri Sri has devised practical tools and techniques that help individuals achieve calmness of mind and clarity of thought. Such a state of mind empowers individuals not only to achieve their goals, but it also instills a sense of service and greater connectedness with humanity.
In 1981, Sri Sri established the Art of Living Foundation, an educational organization with a presence in more than 150 countries. The Foundation's self-development programs offer powerful tools to eliminate stress and foster a sense of well-being.
In 1997, Sri Sri founded the International Association for Human Values (IAHV), a humanitarian organization, which advances human values such as compassion, caring and commitment in political, economic and social spheres.
IAHV and the Art of Living Foundation collaborate on humanitarian initiatives, which include conflict resolution, disaster and trauma relief, environmental conservation, prisoner rehabilitation, youth leadership, women's empowerment, campaigns against female foeticide and child labor, and supporting education for all.
