“It’s phenomenal to see so many people of diverse backgrounds coming together to celebrate peace and togetherness,” said Dhanashree Ramachandran, Director of Community Advancement at Art of Living Boston. “More than 50 percent of participants are first-time meditators.  It says a lot of about what choices we are making as a society.”

She said many dignitaries, government officials, and movers and shakers from Boston community will be meeting with Spiritual guru and the Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, who is on a Get Happy tour across the United States.

Get Happy Boston is the biggest meditation workshop in New England with more than 1,000 participants, said Ramachandran.
