Islamabad, Mar 12 (ANI): Indian spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is arriving here on three days to strengthen bilateral ties between India and Pakistan, through promoting peaceful solutions.
"If we spend one-tenth of what we have spent on conflicts, we could create a much more prosperous South Asia, where no one knows about guns, no one suffers from diseases, and no one cries for life," The Nation quoted Sri Sri, as saying.
This will be Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's second visit; the first one was in July 2004, when he became the first Hindu spiritual leader from India to visit Pakistan.
Shankar believes that spirituality alone can bring the hearts and minds of people together, and mend differences.
A true example is the inauguration of The Art of Living Peace Centre in Islamabad, by Sri along with Dr Paul Bhatti, Advisor to PM for Interfaith Harmony. He will visit places of religious significance, including the Badshahi Mosque, to send out the message of universal spirituality.
Meanwhile, Pakistanis have expressed hope that his visit will benefit both countries.
"We are hoping, his visit will contribute a lot to establish people to people contact between the two neighbours," Zarmina Durrani, a humanitarian and peace activist based in Lahore, said. (ANI)
