He addresses issues as diverse as human rights, business values, social and environmental concerns, and existential questions. He has been a delegate to the United Nations Millennium World Peace Summit, a member of the World Council of Religious and Spiritual Leaders, and the World Economic Forum at Davos, among other international gatherings. He is the founder of Isha Foundation, a non-profit organisation dedicated to the well-being of the individual and the world. The Foundation has several projects that reach out to the socially disadvantaged to promote rural upliftment, education reform, healthy living, environmental stewardship and AIDS awareness.
