A day after an attempt was made on his life by an unidentified gunman, spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravishankar today said he was happy with the existing security and has forgiven the attacker, whom the police are yet to identify.

Speaking to the press at his ashram this morning, Sri Sri Ravishankar said, “I heard a loud noise. But I was in my usual calm self. My driver had a premonition that there could be some kind of attack on me”.

The spiritual leader yesterday escaped a bid on his life when an unidentified gunman shot at his car when he was returning after delivering a discourse.

He said, “I do not have enemies. However, whoever has done this, I forgive him. I give him amnesty. I invite him to join our satsang course. I will teach him meditation and Sudarshan Kriya”.

The 54-year-old Art of Living founder said he was happy with the existing security cover, which police stepped up after last evening’s incident.

The shell fired by the fire arm has been recovered, police said.
