Today is the birthday of Hon'ble Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and this is all about his biography. He is a true saint in my sight. But some of the people of this world who don't like any Hindi minded saint or don't like of spreading light of spiritualism, they always criticizes such kind of people. While I was searching about His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, such kind of one person found on internet who is treating Him as a Fraud Saint. Below is the link, where what has been written about him :
Not only this, when a number of e-mails had been received, then he decided to create a blog on this topic i.e. "How genuine is Sri Sri Ravi Shankar?" I felt a lot of sadness while reading that article. Anyhow, I am going to discuss about the biography of His holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, although I am neither his disciple nor his devotee, yet I am a true Hindu (The Hinduist) and hence, I regard him from the innermost urge of my heart. I only want to say only this about that person that God might give him a conscious mind.
His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is a renowned spiritual leader and multi-faceted humanitarian whose mission of uniting the world into a violence-free family has inspired millions of people worldwide. The icon of non-violence and universal human values, Sri Sri seeks global peace through service and dialog.
Born in 1956 in southern India, Sri Sri's appeal transcends class, race, religion and nationality. Millions of people revere him as their spiritual leader, and look up to him for inner peace and promoting ecumenical values.
In 1981, Sri Sri started the Art of Living Foundation, an international nonprofit educational and humanitarian organization. The Foundation, now active in more than 140 countries, offers educational and self-development programs designed to eliminate stress and foster a sense of well-being. In Europe and the United States, the Foundation's programs are helping inner city youth turn away from gang violence, drugs and alcohol. Sri Sri's Prison Programs have helped transform the lives of an estimated 150,000 inmates around the world.
In 1997, Sri Sri founded the International Association for Human Values, a humanitarian nonprofit organization that advances human values in political, economic, industrial, and social spheres. In South Asia, South Africa, and Latin America, the Association's sustainable development programs have reached more than 30,000 rural communities.
While his self development programs have popularized traditionally exclusive ancient techniques, Sri Sri's social initiatives address an array of issues such as conflict resolution, disaster and trauma relief, prisoner rehabilitation, youth leadership, women's empowerment, female foeticide, child labor, and access to education. In Kashmir and Sri Lanka, Sri Sri is working to further dialogue between opposing parties to resolve the conflicts peacefully.
