Nagapattinam: Spiritual leader and founder
of Art of Living Sri Sri Ravishankar on Thursday said he would
continue the crusade against corruption and black money.

Vowing to fight against corruption in public life, he
said, "We will continue our crusade to bring back the Rs 24
lakh crore black money kept in foreign banks."

Referring to his recent visit to Sri Lanka, Ravishankar
told reporters the Art of Living was now teaching `dhyanam` to
more than one lakh Tamils in the island nation to relieve
their mental stress.

Welcoming the change of government in Tamil Nadu in 2011,
he expressed hope that the present government will continue
to work for the welfare of the poor.

Inaugurating a multi-purpose community centre at Sri
Vidhya Mandir campus in Anaikoil village, he said the centre
had been constructed at a cost of Rs 50 lakh jointly by the
International Association for Human Values (IAHV) and Sri
Balaji Temple Trust, Chicago.

He said the present education system was not making the
youth employable and felt that job-oriented education
system was the need of the hour.

The Vidya Mandir was established by IAHV for benefit of
the tsunami survivors in Tarangambadi taluk. Nagapattinam District Collector T Munusamy participated.

Earlier, Ravishankar visited Lord Saneeswara temple at
Tirunallar in Karaikal district and offered worship.

He also participated in a mega event `Anbin Sangamam` at
Nehru stadium in Karaikal which brought together, music,
Knowledge and meditation on one platform.
