“Ra” in Sanskrit means “That which is Radiant” and “Ma” stands for “Myself”. That which shines forth within me is Rama. That which is radiant in every particle of the Being is Rama.

One Forum. Diverse Cultures and Artists
First-ever Global Stage celebrating diversity. To bring together humanity through the performing arts
For four long decades, The Art of Living has brought together millions from across the globe in celebration of traditional art and art forms through several grandiose events. To further build on Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji’s vision of a ‘One World Family’, the organisation is launching the first of its kind World Forum for Art and Culture (WFAC), a cultural wing that will allow global artists to come together to create historic art through collaborations, and also provide an open platform for teaching and learning traditional art forms from across the globe. As the idea takes shape , the WFAC will strive to become a resource centre for academic research projects on art forms, to preserve the magnanimous reservoir of cultural heritage that has been passed on to the modern world through generations before.
To allow the reach of these cultural nuggets to be as wide as possible, WFAC is offering both online live classes with ace teachers, and self-paced classes to fit in with busy schedules. Our programs have received mentorship and guidance from the doyens of classical art forms in India and abroad, converging for the first time together on such a large scale.
Over the years, many, many artists have chosen to perform on The Art of Living stages, and for the first time through WFAC, these artists would be able to connect, collaborate and create magic, all coordinated through the WFAC team.
And this is just the beginning!
