Lets Fight Against Corruption...

*“Dhyan karna seekh liya, ab dhyan rakhna bhi seekho!” – H.H. Sri Sri Ravi
*India Against Corruption *

Corruption is happening every minute and at almost every possible level of
the system in India right now. Together, we have the power to remove it from
its roots, and make India the starting point of action against corruption
across the world. But to make that possible, we need to ask ourselves the
following 3 questions…

*1. Why is corruption happening?*

It’s happening because of poor laws and policies in the government, which
keep changing according to the whims and fancies of politicians and get
mended according to what suits them best.

Guruji says, it’s happening because of lack of belongingness and the only
obvious cure is Spirituality which can bring back the Human Values.
Corruption happens because people don’t feel that they belong to each other.
“apne hi hai sab log”. No one would want a bribe from his own family member
would they? Every action arises out of our own thought, and self
purification is the cure. To feel that belongingness, Self purification is
required. Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation, Sudarshan Kriya, Seva, Satsang,
Silence and Grace can bring about that transformation in an individual and
hence in society.

*2. Is there any solution to corruption?*


The first thing is to eliminate corruption at your own level. Say no to
bribes; join hands to fight corruption through marches, awareness campaigns
and mass vote. For the India Against Corruption movement, the solution is to
lay strict Anti Corruption rules by the formation of the *Jan Lokpal
Bill*by the citizens.

What is and What could be...

*3. What can I do? How do I contribute to this movement?*
a. Join the India Against Corruption movement, by giving a missed call to
022 61550789 (we need at least 25 Lakh missed calls, around 5 Lakh are done
so far). We will SMS you a message from Anna and others, on what you can do
today, and every day.

b. Stay in touch with minute-by-minute progress, join us on

c. Spread this message. Write on your facebook walls, publish this article
on your blog. Print it out and stick it in your lifts and office notice
boards. Do whatever it takes to get it to the public at large. Invite people
to join Anna at the Jantar Mantar
Do anything and everything in your capacity! Our nation needs LAKHS to join
Anna at Jantar Mantar!
For any suggestions/queries: – write to: iac.noida@gmail.com

Our Nation needs responsible, empowered people right now, so let’s help our
India, our Bharat Mata in every possible way we are capable of!

Another of Guruji’s quotes to end with: *“When you come out of your personal
comfort zone and take a higher responsibility, you will find that whatever
you want gets magically taken care of!”*

Jai Gurudeva!


The Berlin Olympic Stadium

Art of Living turns 30 this year. We have been on planet Earth for 30 wonderful years.
We are having a huge celebration: The World Culture Festival at the Berlin Olympic Stadium on the 2nd and 3rd of July 2011. A stadium originally built by Hitler for the infamous Berlin Olympics in the last century, will be used to spread the message of One World Family – Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam. A message of Peace, Love, Happiness and Harmony in Diversity.

This will be followed by a YES!+ Advance course from the 4th to the 7th of July Wid Guruji ofcourse!.

After more than a month of discussion and haggling with various Travel Agents, we have some very nice prices for people who wish to come!

Departure from India is either from Bombay or Delhi on June 30th.

The price is *drum roll* Rs 51,000!!

The price includes airfare from India (ex Bombay and Delhi) to Berlin and back. The price includes the entry to the World Culture Festival on 2nd and 3rd as well as the price for the YES!+ Advance Course. It includes meals on the Advance course.

We have got this fare after ridiculous amounts of quibbling with all parties concerned and it is utterly non refundable.

It doesn’t include your accommodation in Berlin. If you wish to rough it out and stay in a tent, it will cost you about Rs 6000 from July 1st to 8th. You will need to bring your own sleeping bags.

If you wish to stay in a dorm type accommodation, 2-3 people in one room, then it will cost you about Rs 15,000 from July 1st to 8th.

We can assist you in getting any of these types of accommodation. There are only 40 beds available now in Berlin for the dorm accommodation. Plenty of tent accommodation is there.

If you wish to have better accommodation in a hotel, then click to book directly from the the WCF website, where various hotels in Berlin are giving discounted fares esp. to the people coming for WCF 2011.

The price of Rs 51,000 is available only to the first 70 people who book, after which it will increase by approximately Rs 5000 for the next 70 people. Also all prices are expected to go up by around 20% from April 1st.

You will need to pay the money before the 26th of March. You need to have a passport valid at least till December 2011.

Budget about Rs 2500 for traveling to and fro the advance course venues to wherever you are staying, and about Rs 5000 for food on the first 3 days.

Visa cost will be approximately Rs 6000.
