Art of Living is organising a mega event ‘World Culture Festival-2016’ to commemorate its 35 years of service to humanity from March 11 to 13 in New Delhi.

According to a communication issued by the Art of Living on Saturday, the event aims to spread the message of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam-One World Family, in its celebration to mark its more than three decades of service to humanity, spirituality and human values to over 370 million people across 155 countries.

The festival emphasizes co-existence and celebrates diversity by bringing together the power of 3.5 million people on a common platform. The venue for the festival will cover an area of about 1,000 acres and will witness the world’s largest stage set-up spread over an area of 7 acres. This will be an attempt to enter the Guinness Book of World Records for the ‘largest temporary stage’ in the world.

It is expected that more than 25,000 artists will perform at the festival which includes 8,000 musicians playing 40 instruments in a musical symphony, 650 drummers from South Africa and several tribal artists from Indian states such as Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Sikkim and others.

The highlight of the festival will be a ‘Peace meditation’ led by humanitarian and spiritual leader Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, who is the founder, The Art of Living, which will be held on all three days of the festival, with the millions in attendance.

More than 20,000 guests from other countries are expected.
