Gurudev Sri Sri Ravishankar 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 NGO that works in special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations. He has been honoured with numerous awards including the highest civilian awards of Colombia, Mongolia and Paraguay. In 2016, the Indian government conferred upon him the second highest civilian award – the ‘Padma Vibhushan’. His vision of promoting quality education that instills self-esteem and creativity among children led to the foundation of Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir Trust which regards educational institutions as ‘temples of knowledge’. The trust has established various schools, colleges and universities across India.
