Read full description of the books Guru of Joy: Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and the Art of Living:I can't give any number of stars to Guruji's biography without being biased. So here goes my first review on Goodreads.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. This guy is the coolest person I have ever met, heard & learned from, in the last 19 years of my life (I'm 19, btw.)
He has changed my life (the one i'll be living till I die) drastically. I am not going to go on about how it happened since it's the book i've to write the review about.
So after I did my first advanced course I ended up wondering what was he like during his childhood, his teen-years or anytime before he became a spiritual guru. Most of all, how could he POSSIBLY have spread this NGO called Art Of Living in over 152 countries worldwide in just 25 years from its originating?! Like, what the hell!? He's 58, not 158!
This biography by François Gautier allowed me to get a glimpse of Guruji's childhood, his family members, his relationship with his younger sister, how he ended up interviewing his interviewers during a job interview, his mom's reaction when he turned up with long hair and longer beard (:D), HIS spiritual gurus, his discovery of "Sudarshan Kriya", AOL initiative, losses and gains on the way of developing AOL to what it is now.
Through this book my curiosities were allayed. I also found out things which were completely unanticipated. Basically, I am very glad I read it. I recommend you read it too.
