Proud of his Sindhi-Indian roots, Anand Krishna was born in Indonesia, which as predicted by the Śukā Nādi(thousands of years old oracle) is his Karma Bhūmi (the land, where he must live his life path).
Anand was inspired to establish Anand Ashram and devote his entire life for the betterment of society by a personal experience, an encounter with death. At the top of his business career in 1991, he was diagnosed with acute Leukemia (blood cancer) in a very advanced stage. It was then, in search of healing, that he met with a mysterious Tibetan monk in the Himalayas and miraculously healed.
For Anand, meditation is not about sitting in silence for certain hours each day. It is about living consciously – conscious of our personal health, mental peace, controlled emotions; and conscious of our surrounding our environment – conscious of all life.
The 4th President of Indonesia, K.H. Abdurrahman Wahid recognized his contributions and said, “If we want to have peace, then we must hear what Anand Krishna is saying”.
He has a legacy of almost 170 books to date with more than 1.5 million copies sold in the past 20 years. People of all faiths attending his talks and meditation sessions is a running commentary to his vision “One Earth, One Sky, One Humankind”.
Guruji’s insight is beautiful and the whole world needs to understand why we need to work very hard to salvage Sanatana Dharma (the Eternal Universal Values) for the betterment of Mankind… It is our responsibility to ensure its continuity for eternity.

I always wish I could be as organised as you. The organised work itself is yoga. Perfection in every task. That's what I felt the moment I heard you and then visited Ubud ashram and school.
