Concerned over the plight of displaced people from Sri Lanka, Spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar would visit Mandapam in Rameshwaram on Monday to meet Sri Lankan Tamils living in the refugee camps there.

His visit assumes significance in the context of the current developments in the island nation, propelling a large influx of displaced Sri Lankan Tamils to the shores of Tamil Nadu, a spokesman of the Art of Living Foundation said in a press release.

Observing that the spiritual leader was deeply concerned about the suffering of the displaced people, he said that the visit was aimed at providing solace and reassurance to them.

A team of Art of Living's trauma care volunteers were already in Mandapam.

He would also participate in two major public events at Trichy and Chennai on January 27 and 28 respectively, the spokesman said.
