The Hindu-derived meditation movement, The Art of Living (AOL), founded in 1981 by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in Bangalore, has grown into a global organization which claims presence in more than 150 countries. Stephen Jacobs presents the first comprehensive study of AOL as an important transnational movement and an alternative global spirituality. Exploring the nature and characteristics of spirituality in the contemporary global context, Jacobs considers whether alternative spiritualities are primarily concerned with individual wellbeing and can simply be regarded as another consumer product. The book concludes that involvement in movements such as AOL is not necessarily narcissistic but can foster a sense of community and inspire altruistic activity.

Abstract : This paper draws from the experiences of 1099 participants of the Sudarshan Kriya technique of the Art of Living Foundation. The randomly drawn sample of participants had successfully completed the Sudarshan Kriya part 1 and 2 and/or the Sahaj Samadhi Meditation courses in the city of Mumbai, India. Sudarshan Kriya was largely perceived to be effective for a general feeling of peace and well-being. The analysis brings out differentials in the perceived efficacy by socio-demographic profiles, health status and self-practice/follow up attendance through the multiple linear regression model. Logistic regression analysis showed that apart from certain other factors like being currently married, better qualified and in service/employment, self-practice and regular follow up attendance were crucial predictors for the efficacy of Sudarshan Kriya. Further, the paper builds a frame for applications of Sudarshan Kriya to social work containing aspects of: episteme, practical steps and possible efficacy parameters. The hegemonic propensities of promoting such a technique within the social work discipline have also been discussed. In the conclusion, perceived efficacy of Sudarshan Kriya technique and what it implies for social work has been discussed through some relevant literature.

It was an era when the wisdom of yoga had been buried under years of ritual practices, when religion outweighed human values, when games were becoming wars and wars were being played like games. It was at such a time that, in a quaint village in south India, a young boy was found in deep meditation. He would say, 'I have family everywhere. People are waiting for me.' Nobody believed him then. Time revealed the destiny of the millions who came to him to discover themselves. Over the years, his sublime presence and pragmatic teachings would foster the values of joy, peace and love across the world. His transformative art of breathing, the Sudarshan Kriya, became a household practice, an alternative way of life that inspired people to seek self-realization. He became the guru who made the ethereal tangible, who brought about a profound shift in every sphere of human endeavour--from art to architecture, health care to rehabilitation, inner peace to outer dynamism. From a carefree child to a teenager often found in the company of saints, from a young meditation teacher to a revered spiritual Master, this book is an intimate and affectionate account of the life of Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar by his sister Bhanumathi Narasimhan, who witnessed his mystical life unfold up-close. Gurudev: On the Plateau of the Peak is an attempt to fit the ocean in a teacup, offering readers a sip of infinity.
