Guru set to meet the cons

Glasgow Daily Record, UK

Scots cons are to get a lesson in love and kindness from one of the world’s leading spiritual gurus.

Indian religious master Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is to share his wisdom and global message of love with the criminals.

He will speak to inmates at Edinburgh’s Saughton Prison, which houses assassin Ricardo Blanco and vampire killer Allan Menzies.

Shankar, who studied under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the famous founder of the meditation movement, will visit the prison during a four-day stay in Scotland.

His 90-minute talk to cons will be on ‘spirituality and prison rehabilitation’.

A jail source said yesterday: ‘There are murderers and rapists in here and they don’t talk in the language of love and peace.’

Bangalore-born Shankar, in his 40s, set up the Art of Living Foundation who have taught self-help courses to more than a million people in 130 countries.

The programme teaches stress relief, conflict solving, anger management and personal development.

The guru’s visit to Scotland in June will also include a talk to staff and students at Edinburgh University, a lunch with MSPs and a trip to the Scottish parliament.
