BANGALORE: Sudarshan Kriya, the famous yoga technique initiated by the Art of Living, has reached China's doorstep. Spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravishankar inaugurated the AoL ashram on the outskirts of Beijing on Sunday. 

"India and China share a long tradition of wisdom and spirituality," Sri Sri said at the inauguration. 

Hundreds of Chinese devotees gathered at the event which was followed by a satsang. Representatives of Chinese Peoples Association of Friendship of Foreign Countries ( CPAFFC), a government-backed organization, attended. 

Thanking the Communist Party of China for its support, Sri Sri said: "Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism and the Upanishads all point to the fact that peace is within us and we need to share it with everyone. China's contribution to the world has been Kung Fu and Tai Chi which ensured alertness and good health. India has contributed yoga and breathing techniques. The Art of Living's Beijing ashram will not only cater to Chinese, but will draw people from all over the world to experience their hospitality.
