I just completed 70 hours of one of the most amazing experiences of my life – the DSN course of the Art Of Living (AOL). I am a dedicated AOL follower and worship Sri Sri Ravi Shankar as my Guru.

I checked into the course at 1630 hours on Thursday and checked out on Sunday just around 12 mid-night – with a few hours allowed in between to go home to shower and nap. In effect, 3.5 days of non-stop action.

The experience was simply amazing. Just imagine the place to be a military-yoga la ‘miliyoga’ camp. The almost non stop sessions of 19 hours comprised classic yoga, meditation, introspection, self-development, ego bashing, sharing and caring, acting, spontaneity, improvisation, singing and dancing, serving and even spot fund raising… a mélange of the most intense of emotions all served ‘red bull’ style. The thoughts that emerged in my mind in random order were ‘wow’, ‘what the ****’ , ‘god, thank you, ‘ I’m a CEO – what the hell am I doing here’, ‘what was I waiting for’, ‘how do masters become masters’, ‘isn’t this what life was supposed to be all about’, ‘thanks for all that I have’, ‘get me the hell out of here’….

There was one (non physical) session in which I cried non-stop.

At night my level of energy was so high, thanks to the special and almost magical meditation that just 4 hours of sleep was enough to move on to the next day.

I would recommend this to everyone.  You need to start with a basic course to qualify. A must for all of us in the bad bad world. You come out like a phoenix.

Interestingly, the Art of Living seniors describes the course thus :

‘if you think you are tough, come and find out how tough you are, and if you think you are weak, then check out how tough we make you’
