BANGALORE: TNT Post, the postal department of Netherlands, affiliated to the Government of Netherlands has released four postage stamps to honour Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the founder of Art of Living and the International Association of Human Values (IAHV).

Two of the stamps carry photographs of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. The third stamp has a photograph of Vishalakshi Mantap, the meditation hall at Art of Living’s international centre in Bangalore. The fourth stamp is dedicated to the work done by the Art of Living for the education of the under-privileged. It depicts children from the rural school run by the Art of Living foundation in the outskirts of Bangalore, where more than 2,000 rural and lessprivileged children are provided free education.

This honour comes as Sri Sri is on a tour to Europe where he is visiting Bulgaria, Germany, Switzerland and Netherlands.
