Art of Living:
True laughter is true prayer, teaches Sri Sri Ravishankar—the guru whose Art of Livingcourses gives lessons in living, which concentrate on breath work and self-awareness
Simplicity, naturalness, effortlessness and spontaneity are spiritual precepts for him. The ego, which is considered the chief foe of seekers of enlightenment, simply arises from a short supply of "naturalness", says Ravi Shankar. It is more difficult to be an atheist than a believer. "Don't try to develop unconditional love," he advises, "because you are love."
As for himself, he appears to be running his worldwide organization absolutely effortlessly. Born in a prosperous business family in Bangalore, southern India, Ravi Shankar's spiritual destiny manifested itself in his infancy, when as a child of four, he recited the entire Bhagavad Gita. The atmosphere at home was deeply religious. His father, a medical astrologer, divined his son's unusual powers early, and has always supported his decisions. At eight, in addition to conventional schooling, Ravi Shankar started studying Vedic literature. By 18, he had earned a degree in science. His background in science and the Vedas is what brought him to the notice of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the transcendental meditation movement. Ravi Shankar rose in the movement to become a close associate of Maharishi before deciding to forge out on his own.

Tee off to thrilling moments, on a world-class course. With unlimited challenge and a spectacular perspective. Birdies, eagles, albatrosses and more await the avid golfer.
The magnificent golf course at Eagleton fulfills a dual purpose. It presents every golfer with the appropriate level of enjoyment and challenge. And, equally important, it creates a permanent ecological oasis, enhancing the image of the Garden City.
Like the Old Course at St. Andrews, which preserves the Scottish Linklands for posterity, Eagleton seeks to honor and accentuate the natural setting. Displaying total sensitivity for the environment, the design emerges from the terrain, sculptured around existing contours. Creative land management attuned in form, function and aesthetics to the surroundings, has resulted in a masterpiece. Trees, open landscape, water bodies and theme plantings and a supreme sense of satisfaction.
Ecological factors come into play at every stage. Over 40,000 trees, lush turf and sophisticated fertilization, irrigation and waste water management measures contribute to a natural pleasing biosphere.
