H.E. Ahmed Aboul Gheit, Secretary-General of the Arab League also called on Sri Sri to discuss the geo-political situation prevailing in the region.

“We want to bring happiness in the whole Arab world,” Gurudev said while addressing the gathering, “The Art of Living is doing its bit to bring solace to the people of Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan.” He spoke about the values and need for diversity in a rapidly shrinking global village. He also shared why few minutes of meditation every day and knowledge about the breath is an unavoidable tool to fight aggression and depression in the modern society. Meditation was followed by a cultural program with traditional Arabic music recital, a Yoga dance and an Indian classical dance.

On November 16, in a lively interaction with over 5000 workers at Sharjah Expo Centre, Gurudev, shared simple practical keys to happiness and peace.
