Sri Sri Launches Violence-Free Stress-Free Society in Canada

“I have this crazy idea – a world without violence. This may appear to be hoping for Utopia, but we need to dream and we will get there!! If we instill pride in being non-violent – in being compassionate, in being helpful to others, our lives will take a new direction…And that should be our unwavering commitment!”

- Sri Sri Ravi Shankar


In today's world, with communications bringing to us information on events around the globe, we are very aware of the tragedies and harm that violence causes, not only to the people directly involved in and affected by such acts and behaviour, but all of society.Sri Sri’s sole mission of uniting the world into a “Violence- free Stress - free Society” by re-instilling human values has inspired millions of people worldwide to be in service.

The Art of Living Foundation is dedicated to creating a “Violence-free Stress-free Society”.

We dedicate ourselves to a peace so profound that it inspires everything we do: from the games we play, to the words we speak, to the way we relate to ourselves and our neighbors. We are offering the world a vision of peace. Now, more than ever, we need the courage and compassion to believe, and live, and love, and work, as men and women of non-violence.

As we dedicate ourselves to Non-Violence, we encourage everyone to join us in making our society a “Violence-free Stress-free Society”. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the founder of the Art of Living, has said that education is a key to ending violence.
