As Nigeria gets set for the 2023 general election, the world acclaimed Gurudev, Sri Ravi Shankar, has prayed for Nigeria and the presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) Prince Adewole Adebayo.
The prayer session took place when the SDP presidential candidate visited the Art of Living Centre in Washington DC, USA where he met with his good friend, Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.
The SDP candidate and the world spiritual leader spoke extensively in private during the visit.
Briefing the public after the closed door meeting, both leaders expressed admiration for each other’s work and commitment to public happiness and global peace.
Adebayo commended Gurudev for his lifetime of work towards the advancement of the spiritual growth of the human race, global peace through universal happiness and commitment to one humanity for all.
He invited Gurudev to pray for Nigeria and to focus on peace and happiness of Nigeria and her leaders and people.
Adebayo laid out his vision for Nigeria for a country that is a paradise for her own people, a pride of the Black people globally and a blessing to the world.
The presidential candidate noted that Nigeria will not only prosper materially having been blessed with all it takes to overcome want and deprivations but to thrive and attain the peak of material success.
Nigeria will also, under his leadership attain spiritual peace and happiness and contentment so that Nigerians may regain their long held status as the happiest people in the world.
In response, Guredev expressed gratitude for the visit of the presidential candidate and admired his commitment to the peace, happiness and prosperity of Nigeria, adding that the friendship and visit are not a coincidence but divinely ordained, noting that just like Adebayo, it was from his childhood days he dreamed of his leadership role and global place in the world today.
The Guru dressed and honoured Adebayo and his team in a brief ceremony.
Gurudev prayed for Nigeria and directly addressed the Nigerian people in a short message. The Guru announced a decision to visit Nigeria in August 2022.
In the entourage of the Nigerian presidential candidate are his campaign strategist, Washington’s legendary Ms Jan DuPlain, Dr Ralph Bello-Fadile, Special Advisor, Dr KY Dele, Senior Special Assistant, presidential photo-historian Patrician McDougall and Special Assistant Mr Salewa Ladipo.
At the conclusion of the visit, members of the close family of Sri Ravi Shankar the Guru had a private session with Prince Adebayo and wished him success in his quests to lead Nigeria.
Adebayo thanked the family, expressing that he was deeply touched in the soul and spirit and said he would always consider you as part of the Gurudev’s family.
