With an aim to strengthen India-Pakistan ties by promoting friendship, understanding and dialogue, spiritual head of Art of Living Sri Sri Ravi Shankar left for Pakistan on a three-day peace mission via the land transit route of Attari/Wagah border on Monday. He would return to India on March 14.
Before crossing over to Pakistan, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar told that he was going to Pakistan on Peace Mission where he would spread the message of peace and harmony. This is spiritual leader’s second visit to Pakistan. The first visit was in July 2004.
During his three-day visit, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar will meet top leaders of the country to strengthen collaborative efforts between two countries. He will also meet with the religious heads in Pakistan to create awareness among common Pakistanis.
Sri Sri is also expected to meet spiritual leaders, business leaders, academics, student organizations and opinion leaders to make stronger joint efforts between neighbouring countries.
Besides visiting places of religious significance, he will be inaugurating an Art of Living centre too. He will enter Lahore from the Wagah border and then proceed to Islamabad and Karachi.
During his last visit in 2004, Ravi Shankar inaugurated the Art of Living’s stress eliminating programmes and humanitarian service initiatives.
