Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Founder, The Art of Living successfully concluded his European tour starting from the terror-affected France, Poland, Sweden and ending it in Norway as he reached out to thousands of Europeans at various fora such as prestigious universities and parliaments with his message of peace and harmony.
In Norway,Gurudev addressed the Norwegian Parliament and met with the President of the Parliament, Olemic Thommessen.
The event witnessed a heated debate when President of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, Mr. Masood Khan, started speaking. Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and Member of Parliament Mrs. Sylvi Graham managed to drive the debate towards resolution that there should be a united fight against terrorism and poverty and the attention of the society should be towards similarities rather than the differences to bring peace and harmony in diversity.
Earlier on Monday evening Gurudev addressed the civil society and later was joined for a luncheon by the State Secretary of the Prime Minister. On Tuesday Gurudev was received by the Norwegian Olympic Committee and its head Mr. Inge Anderson as well as the record Winning Olympic Medalist Kjetil Andre Aamodt.
It was decided that The Art of Living and the Olympic Sports Committee Norway will work together to conduct more confidence building programs for athletes.
