Art of Living set to host evening of divine music.

ORGANISERS are gearing up to host an evening of divine and soulful music this weekend.

The Art of Living, Bahrain Chapter, will hold the Spring Tunes 2013 under the patronage of Royal Charity Organisation on Saturday at Bahrain Keraleeya Samajam (BKS), Segaiya, from 7pm onwards.

The annual event will feature a performance by Dr Manikantan Menon, who is an internationally acclaimed singer, music composer and flautist as well as an Ayurvedic doctor, who has dedicated his life to promote holistic wellbeing by amalgamating Ayurveda, music, Indian spiritual knowledge and yogic practices.

He has been associated with the organisation for more than 20 years and is a senior Art of Living teacher and the founder and head of the Ayurvedic hospital at the Art of Living International Centre, Bangalore, India, where he now resides, making a difference in people's lives through his music, Ayurveda and teaching.

"Music is beyond words and helps to unwind, it is the subject of the right brain and helps activate it," says Dr Menon.


"The words of a song carry a lot of vibrations which go deep into the body, soul, and mind to elevate individuals."

Glorifying harmony and depth in his melodious renderings, his compositions kindle devotion and connectivity to one's being.

Dr Menon is on a Gulf tour along with his wife Dr Nisha Manikantan, who is also an Ayurvedic doctor and founder director of Sri Sri Ayurveda.

He has held musical concerts in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Muscat before coming to Bahrain.

Founded in 1982 by world renowned humanitarian and spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the Art of Living Foundation is a not-for-profit, educational and humanitarian non-governmental organisation engaged in stress-management and service initiatives, and is the largest volunteer-based organisation in the world.

The event is free, and for more information contact 39922935, 36844873, 39104176 or 39478144.
