DUBAI: Indian spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar held a meditation session in Sharjah, one of the emirates of the UAE, and imparted lessons on how to lead a happy and stress-free life to nearly 5,000 migrant workers from 20 countries, including Pakistan.

The Art of Living (AOL) founder embarked on a four-day maiden visit to the UAE on Thursday on an invitation from the ruler of Fujairah, Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi.

Addressing the workers at the Sharjah Expo Centre on Friday, he explained how one can lead a happy and stress-free life through ancient techniques of meditation.

The meditation session was attended by around 5,000 workers from 20 countries including India, Sri Lanka, Philipines and Pakistan.

Earlier in the day, the spiritual guru visited a labour camp for South Asians in Sharjah and held a discourse on happiness.

Around 1,000 people from 10 countries took part in the happiness programme organised by the local chapter of the AOL at the labour camp.

Addressing the blue collar workers at the camp, the 'gurudev' said the most important thing in life is to be happy always.

"Meditation helps you to overcome tough times. Even in odd situations, we have to remain calm. Any job we take up has to be completed with sincerity," he said, adding, "Time has an important place in everyone's life and all the activities should be time-bounded."

Sri Sri also noted that manpower from India played a major role in the development of the UAE.

In the evening, to a packed audience at Dubai World Trade Centre, he began a two-day discourse - 'Unveiling Infinity' - based on the rare Kashmiri scripture, Vigyan Bhairav.

The discourse was attended by a large gathering, including women members from the royal family of the UAE.
