The source and force behind and beyond all our efforts!

Education is a vehicle for transformation or metamorphosis of the self and an aid to the growth of the economy.

-Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is a globally revered spiritual and humanitarian leader. He has spearheaded an unprecedented worldwide movement for a stress-free, violence-free society. Through a myriad of programs and teachings, a network of organizations including the Art of Living and the International Association for Human Values, and a rapidly growing presence across 156 countries, Gurudev has reached an estimated 450 million people. Gurudev has developed unique, impactful programs that empower, equip and transform individuals to tackle challenges at global, national, community and individual levels.

He believes that “Basic human values need to be encour- aged in the classroom. A child is born with these values and a teacher needs to uncover them. What are these human values? Compassion, Co-operation, friendliness, smiles, laughter, lightness, wanting to help, a sense of belonging and caring for each other.”

Through his initiatives and addresses, Sri Sri has consistently emphasized the need for reinforcing human values and recognizing humanity as our highest identity beyond nation, faith and gender. Fostering interfaith harmony, bridging communal divides and calling for a multi-cultural education as the remedy for fanaticism are a significant part of his efforts to achieve sustainable peace on our planet. Each of our institute is based on this philosophy and is imparting education to thousands, so as to create a better society.

SSRVM Trust

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Vidya Mandir Trust

Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar believes that just information is not education. It is culturing our behavior and attitude. It is our ability to perceive things better. The purpose of education is to increase awareness. Only an education that can nourish inbuilt virtues can impart true intelligence.

With these thoughts in mind, SRI SRI RAVISHANKAR VIDYA MANDIR TRUST was founded in the year 1999 by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravishankar as the educational wing of the Art of Living, to promote holistic education in a stress free and child friendly environment.
