“Shiva tattva is total; it is complete. Shiva is where the mind dissolves. He is formless yet sees all. He is the formless core of existence and also the goal. He is the seer, sight and the scene. He is without a beginning or end. He permeates the entire creation. He is never born and is eternal. He is the fourth state of consciousness, the non-dual consciousness that is present everywhere.” — H. H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, a spiritual leader and humanitarian, was born in 1956 in southern India. He was often found deep in meditation as a child. At the age of four, he astonished his teachers by reciting the Bhagawad Gita.
To globalise the knowledge of leading a happy, stress-free life, H. H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar established an international educational and humanitarian NGO — The Art of Living, in 1982. Today, with a presence in over 151 countries, the Art of Living is one of the largest voluntary organizations in the world
