The Founder

The founder – His Holiness Sri Sri Ravishankar

Sri Sri Ravishankar was born in 1956, in a respected family in a small village called ‘Papanasanam’ in South India. From an early age it was evident that Sri Sri Ravishankar was destined to lead a spiritual life – even as a very young child, he was often found absorbed in meditation. At the age of 4 his parents were surprised to discover him spontaneously reciting the Bhagvad Gita. Later on, in school, he would tell his friends, “People are waiting for me all over the world, I am going to visit them one day ...” By the age of 17, he had completed his traditional education in both Vedic literature and modern science.

In the year 1982, Sri Sri Ravishankar emerged from a period of silence and meditation. He then started teaching the Sudarshan Kriya technique. He established the Art of Living foundation to spread this knowledge. Sudarshan Kriya is a powerful breathing technique, which eliminates stress and brings one completely into the present moment.

Sri Sri has the compassion of Jesus Christ, playfulness of Sri Krishna and the erudition of Adi Shankara.
