Citing the example of the Parsi community, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar urges people from around the world to help the Yazidis preserve their culture and religion. He urges people to not convert the Yazidis to other faiths.
In a special session entitled “Peace in Middle East”, people from around the world sought the guidance of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, founder, Art of Living & International Association for Human Values (IAHV).
Sri Sri has made a commitment to spread the message of peace and non-violence in Iraq. Since September 2003 when Art of Living and IAHV began trauma relief initiatives, around 10,000 people from Iraq have found relief and a new lease of life.
