“Bhajan Sandhya” ... An evening with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Ji

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s philosophy of peace is that “unless we have a stress-free mind and a violence-free society, we cannot achieve world peace.” To help individuals get rid of stress and experience inner peace, Art of Living offers stress-elimination programs which include breathing techniques, meditation and yoga.

Representatives from Sri Sri Ravi Shankar organization, “Art of Living” conducted “Bhajan Sandhya” at Shafa Home, Delhi Project site. This spiritual musical event was attended by our residents volunteers their families and staff members.
During addiction, the residents never used to socialize with their families or become a part of such events. For them, they and their “drug of choice” used to be their power, their higher power,  their God. This was our way to make them realize the truth and an effort to make them mend their relations and socialize with the other world.

The whole atmosphere was filled with joy and spirituality. Residents may not have understood the lyrics or may not have followed the tune, but most importantly they were participating and singing freely.

As they say the entire universe is made up of ‘rhythms’, when we participate or sing in a satsang, the ‘rhythms’ help us to reach our inner self. One can experience a peaceful, calm and blissful state of mind.
