Speaking on the occasion, Ravi Shankar says, "I am extremely happy at the launch of Anandam Active service only on Asia's largest DTH player DishTV. This service has made it possible for millions of people who, due to their hectic lifestyles, cannot attend live discourses in my ashram to now listen and learn The Art of Living, even in the remotest part of the country. Together, we hope to make the world a better place to live. My blessings are with everyone who is a part of this initiative."

"We are delighted to be partners in this noble initiative. It has been our constant endeavour to make television viewing a wholesome experience for the entire family. We have always believed in offering unique content to our subscribers. With the launch of Anandam Active, we are continuing with our legacy of offering another unique service for our consumers who are spirituality inclined and will have this great opportunity to enjoy Sri Sri's teachings in the close comfort of their homes," adds Salil Kapoor, chief operating officer, DishTV

Talking about the initiative, Ajay Kumar, chief executive officer, Amazing India Television (content provider for Anandam Active), shares, "Anandam Active has been launched on the auspicious occasion of Guru Ji's birthday. The key message of Art of Living is to celebrate life and spread happiness. Anandam Active echoes the same mission and hopes to achieve a positive behavioural change within the masses who will consume this content. Sri Sri's teachings on Anandam Active will remove the hindrance of the physical distances with the people at large and will enable us to interact with a much larger audience to share our thoughts and ideology. We firmly believe that DishTV, Asia's largest direct-to-home entertainment company, shall prove to be a priceless partner in this endeavour."
