Swami Sadyojathah ji
Swami Sadyojathah was born on 6.11.1969, in the Royal Family of Kerala, the southern most state of India. He finished his BTech in Mechanical Engineering. Though aristocratic blue blooded, Swami ji as a youth, was fascinated by the communist movement in Kerala and was an active supporter of the Student wing of the Communist Party.
However an accidental meeting with His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, way back in 1993 made a complete turnaround in his whole life. The spark was more than enough to kindle the dormant traits in him to serve humanity and blossom into rarified realms of spirituality, into a roaring flame, under the careful and affectionate tutelage of His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.
Swami Sadyojathah Coordinates the International activties of the Art of Living Foundation since 1993. He is a Senior faculty of the Art of Living Programmes which helps in eliminating stress with special focus on restoring human values in society.

He led the core team of Art of Living volunteers in trauma relief and counseling after the devastating Tsunami which hit the shores of India and Sri Lanka. Through this program hundreds of people could find solace and bring some peace in to their shattered lives and minds.
Most importantly, Swami ji is actively involved in the relief process initiated by His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in Sri Lanka. He was the Chief Co-ordinator of the' International Conference on
Peace and Reconciliation in South Asia’ at Oslo.
