In appreciation of Advani’s letter, His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has said that religious and spiritual leaders are in touch with the grass-root populace on a daily basis and it is wise to take their advice on things concerning people. It is only spiritual and religious leaders who can put a check on corruption and criminalization of politics. Sri Sri has lauded Advani’s move to bring back 74 lakh crore rupees of Indian black money from Swiss banks.

The role of spiritual leaders in track-two diplomacy with India’s neighboring countries cannot be under-estimated. They can help ease tense relations between countries and during times of disaster can mobilize volunteers for relief work. It is time the voice of religious and spiritual leaders is heard. Sri Sri particularly appreciated Advani’s initiative to include leaders of all faiths to keep the secular & spiritual character of our country intact.
