The Art of Living: A Life-Changing Journey

I discovered the Art of Living in 2017 when I attended a Happiness Program in my college. At first, I was simply looking for a new experience, but what I gained from the workshop was beyond my expectations. I felt an immense sense of happiness, contentment, and freedom that filled every cell of my being. Inspired by the transformation I experienced, I started sharing my newfound knowledge with friends and family, and before I knew it, I was organizing workshops for others as well.

Through regular practice of Sudarshan Kriya and Meditation, I continued to flourish. Not only did my studies improve, but I also became a gold medalist and the top performer in my department. I found that I was able to balance my academic pursuits with my seva, or service, to others, all while continuing to organize and teach Art of Living courses.

After two and a half years, I decided to attend the Teachers Training Program at the Art of Living International Center in Bangalore. Initially hesitant to become a teacher, I trusted in the wisdom of my mentors and teachers and completed the program with full dedication. Becoming the youngest teacher at age 22, I realized that meeting Gurudev was the ultimate goal of my journey.

Today, I consider myself one of the luckiest people to have been chosen by Gurudev himself to spread happiness and knowledge through the Art of Living. Thanks to his blessings and the support of the best mentors, team, and group of individuals who are dedicated to uplifting others, I am now able to teach in a school, pursue my PhD, and continue organizing and teaching AOL workshops both online and offline.

I have witnessed firsthand how people from all walks of life eagerly await the teachings of Gurudev, Sudarshan Kriya, and Meditation. It is my unshakable faith in Gurudev that has enabled me to manage the many challenges of balancing work and study while continuing to spread the Art of Living’s message of peace and happiness.
