The Art of Living (AOL) foundation, based in Bahrain, recently hosted a musical and spiritual event "Sneh Milan" at the cultural hall, near the National Museum in Manama, on November 27, 2014.

The society here follows the principles of the parent body of Art of Living, headed by spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. The AOL conducts yoga (Sudarshan Kriya) and meditation classes as well as kirtan, including Music satsangs.

The AOL recently hosted Vikram Hazra, who is a renowned spiritual singer,writer, philosopher, media producer and social activist. He has been program director at the Art of Living foundation for the past 18 years, conducting workshops on personal excellence and rendering soothing bhajans and kirtans. Vikram Hazra's concerts have always drawn crowds wherever he has performed and Bahrain was no different. This was his third appearance in the island kingdom and he made no secret of the fact that he enjoys performing here in front of a large cosmopolitan Indian audience along with few local Bahrainis.

The chief guest was Mustafa Al Sayed, secretary-general of the Royal Charity Organisation, who was proud to state that he loved Indian music and Bollywood films. His presence was a big boost to Bahrain-India relations as he is a strong loyal supporter of cultural exchange of programs between the two countries. Also present among the dignitaries was Ms Nada Al Haffadh, former minister of health who sat through the entire musical evening, and Juzer Rupawalla, regional head of Lulu Hypermarket chain in Bahrain.

Vikram Hazra enthralled the audience with few shlokas, bhajans on Krishna, interspersed with few folklore songs from Bengal and Rajasthan, which appealed to the audience, who at many times, sang and recited along with the singer.

The multi-talented spiritual singer started off with a 'Ganesha' shloka and culminated proceedings with his ever popular bhajan "Achyutam Keshavam, Krishna Damodaram".
