From the Vedic saints of ancient times to the teachings of Buddha, the entire existence of humankind and the universe as a whole is based on the balance of meditation. One such popular school of thought for more than three decades has been the Art of Living, an organization spearheaded by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.
You don’t even have to be particularly religious to make sense of the mantra that the Art of Living offers, which is simply achieving a stress-free mind and a violence-free society for global peace. Whether the teachings of the Art of Living are starting to speak to you or you’re already a staunch fan, here are some of the must-have apps for the Art of Living fans.
A convenient app designed and created by the Art of Living fans themselves, the Sri Sri app is your virtual connection to the Guruji himself. Offering a variety of free live webcasts every Thursday along with special broadcasts as well, the app is home to some of the most inspirational quotes from Sri Sri Ravi Shankar right at your fingertips.

Sattva – Meditation App
To better implement the ideology of the Art of Living Community, Sattva can be a helpful tool. This app is developed centering the Vedic principles of meditation and yoga that can help you achieve mindfulness and peace. The free guided meditation sessions help one concentrate and track weekly meditation targets with ease.
In the bust lives that we lead, keeping a track of things and making time for the Art of Living program can be a hassle. Thanks to the Abhyassa app that is already popular among thousands of followers, you can practice Daily Sadhana (meditation) at your convenience, practice chanting, Sudarshan Kriya, Surya Namaskar and other meditational practices, and create your personalized playlists for each session.
VVKICRM Teachers App
This one is a helpful tool for the Art of Living teachers where the users get a platform to manage events, programs and participants on a single platform. The app is easy to use and allows you to access and update data. However, the app loads fairly slow that may come across as an annoying factor for some users.

Be a part of the base by joining the live broadcasts, get the latest updates directly on your mobile device, be a part of service projects and help your community, and get direct access to a range of wellness products.

Bonus apps and games
You might have never heard of spiritual gaming, cause the niche barely existed before this Art of Living game was brought to life. The game is a runner game but has a touch of meditation, Sadhana, Satsang, all required to keep up your prana energy which helps you reach the goal and complete the levels. Controls are easy, but the best part is: The game’s locations are inspired by the Art Of Living’s Bangalore Ashram. You even use a magical ‘Sudarshan Wave’ to help people, while you also meet and get blessed by Sudarshan Kriya teachers. Cool, right?
