Sri Lankan Cricket Captain with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Sri Lankan cricket team captain Kumar Sangakara thanked Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and The Art of Living for helping the Sri Lankan cricket team to come out of trauma after the Lahore attack. Kumar Sangakara called on Sri Sri in Colombo on January 23. Sri Sri was on a three-visit to Sri Lanka, from January 21-23.

In 2009, immediately after the Lahore attack , the team had undergone breathing sessions and meditation techniques of the Art of Living in Colombo.

On completing the course then, Kumar Sangakara had said that he had felt relaxed and calm after two sessions of the Sudarshan Kriya. It was “a really pleasant experience”, the sports ministry had quoted him.

"The Sri Lankan cricketers have now found a new direction to be relaxed, calm and still be dynamic and alert," the ministry said.

"Relaxation and recovery is an integral part of a sportsperson's lifestyle, it is techniques like Sudarshan Kriya breathing technique that gives them the energy to bounce back," he said. The eight-hour workshop was conducted by Swami Sadyojatha, International Director, The Art of Living.

On being asked if the cricketers spoke about the trauma, Sri Sri said, “The four days that we spent together, I didn't ask them anything about Lahore and they didn't tell me also. It was like past is past and finished. It was about how to bring your mind to the present and move ahead. They had the belief as well and they wanted to do something as a team.”
