sri sri ravi shankar
in his silence the world
World Culture Festival

not left in the cold
despite the rain

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The Art of Living Foundation celebrates its 30th anniversary in Germany's capital Berlin and spreads the message of global peace.
In a unique celebration of harmony in diversity the World Culture Festival brought together 50,000 participants from 151 countries who took home unique sights, sounds, tastes and the mesmerising variety of all the world continents in one place!


While almost all open air events got cancelled on 2nd July 2011 due to rain and cold, rare for this time of year in Berlin, nothing could dampen the enthusiasm during the Art of Living's 30th anniversary celebration in the Berlin Olympic Stadium and stop the captivated audience to convert their stadium seats into a big dancing stage.

In a bid to promote peace, intercultural dialog and togetherness, senior governmental representatives, business leaders, academia, leaders of NGOs, religious and spiritual leaders, peacemakers and renowned personalities from across the globe shared their views and spread the message of peace, unity and intercultural harmony.


Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, founder of The Art of Living Foundation led a peace meditation that not only invited the audience in the stadium to join in and to take a few moments to unite in peaceful silence, but also millions of people worldwide who watched the show via live webcast and on various TV channels.

During the 2-day program,100 stands in 4 continent pavilions; Asia- Pacific, Europe, America and Africa, situated around the stadium, offered fascinated visitors a cultural journey around the world. A Yoga Park invited through workshops to explore the benefits and the impact of yoga on health and well-being. - web
