Anand Krishna

Anand Krishna

Proud of his Sindhi-Indian ancestry deeply rooted in the ancient Sindhu-Saraswati (Indus Valley) Civilization, Anand Krishna was born in Indonesia, which as predicted by the Shuka Nadi (thousands of years old oracle) is his Karma Bhoomi (Work Field).

Dr. Rajendra Prasad, the first President of India remarked upon seeing the child Krishna, “This is not ordinary boy.” The prediction has come true. Standing high as the legendary Mount Meru, Anand Krishna wavers not an inch from his course of action, inspite of all kinds of trials and turbulences.

Beside the mother Organization, Anand Ashram Foundation (affiliated with UN), Anand Krishna has inspired several other social and educational institutions.

His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama declared him as a “good friend from Indonesia” before the large congregation of thousands of devotees at Sarnath, India.

The 4th President of Indonesia, KH Abdurrahman Wahid recognized his contributions and said, “If we want to have peace, then we must hear what Anand Krishna is saying.”

He has a legacy of 170+ books to date with more than 1.5 million copies sold in the past 20 years. People of all faiths attending his talks is a running commentary to his vision:

“One Earth, One Sky, One Humankind.”

 

“Although we had so little time to talk… I remember our meeting so well.

This is because of the special mesmerizing quality you have,

which comes from your heart. We are Asians, so you will know 

that I am speaking of a resonance that is particularly Asian.”
