Huge crowd gathers in Buenos Aries for Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Several newspapers report that a huge crowd gathered in Argentina’s capital, Buenos Aires, on Sunday, to meditate against violence and stress with a Hindu guru.

The 56-year-old guru, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s Art of Living foundation is particularly popular in Argentina. Shankar is given the double honorific, Sri Sri, to distinguish him from the renowned musician.

Shankar greeted the audience in Spanish and guided them through a 30-minute meditation that included breathing exercises and prayers for personal and social well-being.

Shankar’s organization estimates Sunday’s crowd at a park swelled to more than 100,000 people, but there is no independent confirmation of the numbers.
