Silver Jubilee

Art of Living Silver Jubilee Celebrations (25th anniversary) - USA

28th of Mar 2007

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar developed a proposed Universal Declaration of Human Values which recognizes the need to address the root cause of violence and conflict and stresses the need to address the spiritual aspect of human existence. This would help to achieve the goals for which the United Nations was formed, including universal human rights as set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as well as the objectives of the Millennium Declaration. The Universal Declaration of Human Values was unveiled at an event at the John F. Kennedy Centre for Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. on March 28, 2007. The event marked 25 years of service to society by the Art of Living and its founder, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.
