About Anand Krishna
Proud of his Sindhi-Indian ancestry rooted in the Glorious Sindhu Civilization and Culture, also referred to as Shintu, Hindu, Indus, and Hindia – of which Nusantara or the Indonesian Archipelago has been a part since ancient times – Anand Krishna was born in Solo (Central Java), which, as predicted by the Śukā Nādi (thousands of years old oracle), is his Karma Bhumi, his workfield.
Dr. Rajendra Prasad, the first President of India remarked upon seeing the child Krishna, “This is not ordinary boy”.
The prediction has come true. Standing high as the legendary Mount Meru, Anand Krishna wavers not an inch from his course of action, inspite of all kinds of trials and turbulences.
Beside the mother Organization, Anand Ashram Foundation (affiliated with UN), Anand Krishna has inspired several other social and educational institutions.
The 4th President of Indonesia, KH Abdurrahman Wahid recognized his contributions and said, “If we want to have peace, then we must hear what Anand Krishna is saying”.
He has a legacy of 170+ books to date with more than 1.5 million copies sold in the past 20 years.
People of all faiths attending his talks is a running commentary to his vision “One Earth, One Sky, One Humankind” – his interpretation of an age old Sanskrit Maxim, “Vasudaiva Kutumbakam”, this entire world is but one big family.

Since Dharma is NOT a Belief System
that requires unquestioning blind faith, it cannot depend upon an individual or an institution for its survival. It is nobody’s monopoly. In our ignorant zeal, however, we often fall into the trap of believing so.
Be it a religious, social, political, or any other institution, Dharma is too huge, too big, too large, too high, too vast to be contained in any one single box. Indeed, Dharma does not need any of such boxes.
Fanaticism in Any Form is Against the Hindu Spirit.
We may justify our fanaticism in the name of Dharma, to save Dharma, to stop the Hindus being converted to, what we normally refer to as “other faiths” and embracing “other belief systems”.
The question is: How do we save Dharma, how do we stop our people from converting to such faiths and embracing belief systems, if we have no inkling whatsoever of what the basic tenets of Hindu Philosophy are.
So, It is NOT Hindu-“ism” but Hindu Dharma….
And, Dharma refers to a set of Natural Laws, which have been there since time immemorial. And, if time is limitless, without beginning and without ending, then Dharma would be the same, with no beginning and no ending too
Hindu is NOT Just Another "Ism" So, first and foremost, this has to be fixed. "Ism"s are based upon dogmas and doctrines. They must have "a" book, a prophet, a savior, a messenger - and if there are more than one prophet, one savior or one messenger, than one of them...
