Our Founder

The founder of Sri Sri University is His Holiness Sri Sri RaviShankar who is a renowned spiritual leader and multi-faceted humanitarian whose mission of uniting the world into a violence-free family has inspired millions of people worldwide. 

The state of higher education in India is evolving and expanding at an exponential rate. Synergizing with this rapid expansion, His Holiness  Sri Sri Ravishankar, realized the need for a system that would look after imparting quality higher education in the country.

While India’s population is blessed with a significant talent pool, somehow our present structure lags to churn and retain intelligent minds within the country. 

And as higher education is a very prominent structural part of the education sector of our country, the Founder, Sri Sri Ravishankar envisioned creating a platform that would inspire research, innovation, and critical thinking. 

The great pillars of a country are based on the strong roots of education. And a University is a breeding ground of qualitative thinking. The idea of Sri Sri Ravishankar resonates in building a University, where innovation and new ideas would be encouraged. 

A University that makes its students look at the bigger picture, a platform that frames individual personalities, who not only focuses on personal goals but is also compassionate towards other beings.

A University where questions are welcomed, where students un-learn to re-learn ideas and philosophies. A platform that blends our rich ancient teaching ideologies with the modern learning tools and equipment.

While our revered Founder, Sri Sri Ravishankar has been tireless in creating a more inclusive, kinder, and harmonious world, through yoga and meditation practices. He believes that change lies within the youth of society. 

And the biggest wave of change lies in educating the youths. Achieving this mammoth dream may take up years of effort and dedication. But as little drops of water make up the mighty ocean.

Sri Sri Ravishankar believes that the drive for quality education starts with Sri Sri University.
