He led a core team of Art of Living volunteers in trauma relief and counseling after the devastating tsunami that hit the shores of India and Sri Lanka in 2004, bringing solace to the shattered lives and minds of hundreds of people. In addition to being the chief coordinator of the International Conference on Peace and Reconciliation in South Asia at Oslo, he has addressed many international conferences, including the Parliament of World Religions.
