Hindu spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar led about 800 people in a mass meditation for peace Friday at the Midwest Airlines Center. The event was billed as the largest meditation gathering in Milwaukee. Shankar founded the Art of Living Foundation, which works with the United Nations in programs related to health, education, sustainable development, conflict resolution and disaster relief. In the 90-minute buildup to the meditation, the soft-spoken Shankar shared snippets of wisdom on topics ranging from materialism and marital harmony to religion and spirituality.
