October 28, 2022

The Ministry of Culture has partnered with Art of Living under the aegis of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav to engage the youth in mental health education and to equip them with meditation practices for improved health and wellness. On October 26, 2022, Gurudev Sri Sri Ravishankar officially unveiled the project ‘Har Ghar Dhyan’ at the Art of Living's global headquarters in Bengaluru in the presence of the Chief Minister of Karnataka Shri Basavaraj Bommai. The launch was attended by more than 20,000 people.

In order to increase outreach, especially to the youth, the project will enlist Art of Living teachers as meditation coaches, institutions' representatives, and interested members of the public as meditation ambassadors. The project will be completed on Independence Day in 2023.

Har Ghar Dhyan will act as a medium for guiding people toward a healthy lifestyle and will encourage them to take up meditation as a regular practice. In order to create a healthy environment across India during the Amrit Kaal, such initiatives are expected to play an important role.
