Welcome to The Art of Living International Center! Situated on the top of the Panchagiri Hills, 21km from Bangalore, near Udipalya village, the campus is an ideal location for reflection and rejuvenation.

Started in 1986 and spread over 65 acres, the campus has an abundance of flowering foliage spread along winding footpaths, a peaceful lake and the exquisitely beautiful Vishalakshi Mantap, the central meditation hall.

Satsangs, held every evening, are gatherings where different minds unite through music, meditation, and wisdom to experience an elevated state of consciousness.

Through Seva (voluntary service) one can experience the humble satisfaction of doing selfless work here, from serving food in the kitchen to keeping the premises clean to working in the various departments that focus on various projects and the ashram’s upkeep.

The Vishalakshi Mantap, named after ‘Amma’, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar mother, is the main Meditation Hall in the form of a fully blossomed 1000 petal lotus. Its reflective dome that mirrors the sun during the day is lit up at night to a synchronized change of colored lights. The dome and golden spire that can be viewed from all parts of the sprawling campus grounds play the role of a compass – lending a sense of navigation to the spiritual seeker.

Courses are held in various rooms at different levels of the mantap and satsangs are held on the main level. Each level opens onto a gallery. Following a circular design, the levels provide an excellent view of the campus grounds and the open grounds and hills in the distance.

Built on a smaller scale, is the Sumeru Mantap in the more secluded, old ashram campus. When the campus was newly set up, and there was a much smaller gathering of people, satsangs were held here. It is a circular 3 tiered gallery with a garden in the center and the sky for a roof, dominated by a large densely foliaged banyan tree in the center.

The Radha Kund gardens recapture the mystical garden of Vrindavan, replete with a pair of elephants, a pair of geese, a deer, some rabbits and a number of exotic birds! This is an excellent place to observe various birds as they sweep over the lake - and a good place to unwind, reflect and take stock of one’s life. From the gardens one can hear the Sanskrit chantings of the boys at the Gurukul nearby. The seven year training program at the Gurukul teaches students how to conduct temple rituals. The course syllabus also includes study of the Veda, Agama, Sanskrit, Astrology, Yoga, music, Sculpture, Epics and scriptures. 

The Goshala, home to over 250 cows, is an important project undertaken to preserve the native breed of Indian cows. The cows enjoy human company and visitors receive great pleasure brushing and petting the cows.

For those who wish to simply relax, The Sri Sri Ayurveda Panchakarma (Wellness Spa) offers the ideal retreat for body and mind. Apart from the super ambience and food, one can select from a number of rejuvenating therapy packages the spa offers.

On campus is a very popular, vibrant eatery, The Vishala Café that serves Indian and Continental fast food. It is here that youngsters like to meet, relax, exchange ideas, play the piano or eat a filling meal while reading from the selection of books displayed at the café.

An array of shops are also present on campus – two Divine shops (selling music and books), The Divine Services (a provision store), Madhurya (traditional artefacts, gifts), Sri Kriti (a boutique that sells hand made products by rural women and traditional craftmen) and Sri Sri Agriculture with its fresh produce of fruits and vegetables grown on campus.

The Bangalore Campus makes for a truly self-contained retreat - your home away from home!

The most peaceful place I've visited till now. Beautiful and clean. Away from city life with almost no pollution, Surrounded by Radhakunj Lake, Gurukul where kids learn Vedas and chants everyday. Thousands of people across the globe come everyday to meditate, satsang and practise the powerful Sudarshan Kriya, a gift by His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. A must visit.

It is the heaven on earth! A must visit place in Bengaluru for its peaceful and serene atmosphere. Vishalakshi Mantap, Gurupaduka Vanam and Gurukul are some of the best views in Ashram :)

First things first. I have been an Art of Living follower for the past 8 years. First came here in summer of 2008. And instantly loved it! Review for the casual visitor: It's far from the city (no noise and clean air); full of greenery; there is a lake with a beautiful garden next to it (Radha Kunj); it can be covered in a day (Sundays are ideal) ; there are some really good eateries/cafes in here. The ashram is a sprawling campus with lots of greenery, and one of the most amazing dome structure in Asia is here - The Vishalakshi Mantap. There is also the Guru Paduka Vanam - a large amphitheatre that can seat upto a lakh people. Review for those seeking solace/spiritual Nirvana/peace/Ayurveda The Art of Living offers various courses across age groups that teach techniques for leading a stress-free and healthy life. The Sri Sri Ayurveda Panchkarma lets you experience various massages and Ayurvedic treatments.

Visalakshi mantap - its impossible to be unhappy or tired inside Visalakshi mantap. It's like mother. In its lap, there is peace. Love Q n A with Sri Sri in amphitheatre. And the kitchen food is yummiest - 1000mothers cannot cook such food.

It's a place where life blossoms. As soon as we enter the premises, there is some lightness and it takes ur stresses away. There is one rule of ashram- u can take all ur botherations and problems there but cannot bring it back. U have leave them there and come back with a smile. It's a place where all ur wishes come true and u get the strength and skills to overcome difficulties in life. Magical....
