Service Initiatives

This page contains links and information about TRANSFORMATION that ‘Art of Living‘ has brought in people’s life through it’s service initiatives. I thought of putting this page after being asked for/questioned about our work! I observed that when an Organisation becomes so big, beyond people’s imagination and when it works on grass root level, people seem to get confused on what’s really happening, as many of them lack the tendency to research. They just form an opinion and start giving comment. One more thing associated with grass root level work is changes becomes visible over a period of time… and here are few of those –

I met 2 of our Art of Living teachers who worked their even in war time…. One of  my friends said – What’s big deal meeting politician over there. But you forget that there goes lot of ground work that makes it possible. Ground work I am talking about is – bringing transformation in thousands of people’s lives. For people who just seat and browse it might be hard to imagine, but we do work hard and we do work smart 🙂 Do join YES!+ OR any of Art of Living course 🙂
