According to reports, spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has declined the Padma award.

The spiritual leader's decision came the same day after yoga guru Baba Ramdev declined from accepting the award citing his principle of asceticism.

The Art of Living of which Ravi Shankar is the founder also issued a statement in which he was quoted as saying, "I thank the government for considering me for the Padma award. There are many other deserving people.

Instead of me, I would like them to honour someone else.
