'Art of Living' must for Thackeray family: Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Last updated on: February 04, 2010 17:39 IST

Taking a jibe at Shiv Sena and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena for their campaign against "outsiders" in Maharashtra, spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar on Thursday advised the Bal Thackeray family to "strictly" follow his Art of Living regimes to calm their nerves. "Thackeray parivaar ko Art of Living ki sakht zaroorat hai (The Thackeray family strictly need Art of Living lessons)," Ravi Shankar told reporters.

Emphasising "India's unity is India's strength", the spiritual guru stressed that unity cannot be put on stake for "trivial" issues, referring to the ongoing controversy over the growing conglomeration of migrants in Mumbai.

"The war of words is only complicating matters instead of resolving them. We should look at a united India from Kashmir to Kanyakumari," he said.

Ravi Shankar was speaking at the launch of the Art of Living citizen campaign-'Meri Yamuna Meri Dilli', an initiative calling upon citizens to take part in the efforts to clean the Yamuna river.

"We will start our campaign from March 7, starting from the river banks first with the help of volunteers from more than 82 NGOs," the Art of Living founder noted.
