Sri Sri visits San Martin Prison

San Martin, Argentina, September 6, 2012

Hundreds of prisoners in the San Martín prison, government lawyers, and Ministry of Justice officials accorded Sri Sri a warm welcome to the facility. Inmates, more than 5,200 of whom had attended the Art of Living’s prison rehabilitation program, lauded Sri Sri’s efforts.

One prisoner said, “Thank you for what you do for us in here. We feel free. You gave us the desire to live again.”
