NEW DELHI: Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar will visit Ayodhya on November 16 and hold meetings with “all stakeholders” to find a peaceful resolution of the vexed Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute.

Speaking at the 13th Nehru Memorial Lecture on Inner Peace, Outer Dynamism in Jawaharlal Nehru Universityon Monday, he announced that he would be mediating in Ayodhya dispute for a peaceful solution.

“I have no personal agenda, so I will be talking to all stakeholders. I will also meet UP CM Aditya Nath Yogi,” he said.

He also spoke on a range of issues — from tolerance to ideological battles in the campus, from Delhi’s air pollution to violence streak in children. He termed Delhi’s air pollution “scary”.

“There is dynamism in the university. Dynamism is a sign of youthfulness and it should be supported by peace and not agitation and rebellion.”

Referring to student politics in JNU, the spiritual leader said, “Students can associate with any ideology, but theideology should not be without humanism.” He said the AOL Foundation would teach JNU students tools and techniques so that they can focus on their studies and handle stress better.

On the Ryan school murder case, the AOL founder said the cause of students becoming violent is video games. “Don’t let your children play video games because they can’t differentiate between reality and virtual reality.” He also asked parents, “Don’t let children sit in front of TV sets for more than one hour. Children lose their abilities to calculate.”

Referring to cow vigilantes killing a man for alleged smuggling of cows in Alwar, he said, “Conflict is driven by greed and ulterior motive. Inner peace makes us sensitive to others. A crime is a crime.”
