Gurudev as a Spiritual Teacher

As a teacher, Gurudev shares spiritual wisdom in a way that makes high ideals possible to live in our daily lives. Beyond reviving ancient wisdom, Gurudev has created new techniques for personal and social transformation.

Gurudev as a Peace Ambassador and Humanitarian

Gurudev visits over 70 cities a year promoting peace and inspiring global transformation through ethical leadership, anti-corruption, conflict resolution, and care for all people and the planet.

Gurudev founded The Art of Living as an international, non-profit, educational and humanitarian organization. Its educational and self-development programs offer powerful tools to eliminate stress and foster a sense of well-being. Appealing not only to a specific population, but these practices have also proven effective globally and at all levels of society. The Art of Living courses are currently offered in over 150 countries. In 1997, Gurudev co-founded the International Association for Human Values (IAHV) to, in association with The Art of Living, coordinate sustainable development projects, nurture human values and initiate conflict resolution.

A noted humanitarian leader, Gurudev’s programs have provided assistance to people from a wide range of backgrounds – victims of natural disasters, survivors of terror attacks and war, children from marginalized populations, and communities in conflict, among others. The strength of his message has inspired a wave of service based on spirituality through a huge body of volunteers, who are driving these projects forward in critical areas around the globe.

Through his initiatives and speeches, Gurudev has consistently emphasized the need for reinforcing human values and recognizing that we belong to a one-world family. Fostering interfaith harmony and calling for multi-cultural education as the remedy for fanaticism are significant parts of his efforts to achieve sustainable peace on our planet.
