The Art of Living is a multi-faceted organization with one of the largest volunteer bases in the world. The international headquarters of The Art of Living is located in Bangalore, India. Globally, the organization operates as The Art of Living Foundation formed in 1989 in the United States of America and in Germany. Since then, local centres of The Art of Living have been established across the world. In The Art of Living organizational structure, there is a board of trustees with a maximum term of two years. Two thirds of the trustees change every two years. All the Art of Living teachers and the previous trustees are allowed to nominate a new board. There is a provision for an advisory board that monitors, and guides the organisation. All the accounts are regularly audited by an external auditor. Other than expenses, no trustee is entitled to benefits in terms of salary, etc. The Art of Living's programs fund its humanitarian activities. The proceeds from the sales of The Art of Living Publications and Ayurveda products are also directed to our social initiatives.
