    The campus feels like a resort, hill station, and university all in one. We are lucky to have multiple senior faculty from the Art of Living here on campus. The sattvic vegetarian food, access to a library and computer lab, and the spacious feel of the campus make Sri Sri University the ideal place to grow personally, professionally, and spiritually.

  • Ajaya Kumar Behera MA Yoga

    I am fortunate to be a student at Sri Sri University where I have experienced the real meaning of “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam”, the concept of “One World Family”. The slogan of Sri Sri University “Learn Lead Serve”, according to me, represents the Gnana, Karma and Bhakti streams of Yoga.
