Art of Living founder and spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravishankar escaped unhurt on Sunday  when an unidentified gunman shot at his convoy at the ashram in   Bangalore as he was returning after delivering a discourse, an ashram official said.

One of his devotees sustained a minor injury on the thigh with the bullet brushing past, ashram spokesperson Charu said.

The incident took place around 6.15 PM when Ravishankar was returning to his 'Kutir' by car after addressing a gathering at the 'Satsang', she told PTI.

"We usually have a satsang from four PM every Sunday till around six where even people from neighbouring villages join us. Sri Sri had addressed those gathered at the Satsang and completed his discourse and was returning to his `kutir' by car when the incident occurred".

However, the guru was undeterred by the incident and returned at seven PM to address his followers, she said.

Sri Sri Ravishankar has a wide following all over the country and abroad, where he has set up centres of his organisation.

Sri Sri Ravishankar has popularised 'Sudarshan Kriya', a powerful breathing technique in India and overseas. PTI
