It has been two weeks since there has been a blog post and a week since Sri Sri Ravi Shankar was at the Centre. It was an incredibly full time with courses for people new to Art of Living as well as Silence courses, special courses, and programs for children and youth. In addition, four couples scheduled their weddings during this time. These were our first weddings in the new hall, but we hope people see this as a venue for any time of the year. People also had the opportunity to go up in a hot air balloon! And in total, we served approximately 22,500 meals!
A picture they say, is worth a thousand words, so here are a few that show the fun during that time and the diversity of people who came. On Guru Purnima day, the day the student celebrates the teacher, and remembers how much they have grown and changed because of the knowledge they have received – one person said to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, “this was the best Guru Purnima ever, and he replied, you say that each year. This made me smile, because it is so accurate. Each time one thinks this is the best, and then once again it is the best, leaving one wondering how is one person able to create such joy among so many people. He teaches and shows us that life is a celebration.
