MUMBAI: Tata Sky has launched a 24X7 ad-free video service providing teachings of spiritual gurus on its interactive platform. Called Tata Sky Gurus, the subscribers can now have access to the wisdom of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (Art of Living Foundation), Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev (Isha Foundation) and Brahma Kumaris (Brahma Kumari World Spiritual University) from the comfort of their homes.

The exhaustive content for this service is curated by Shemaroo and will be available exclusively on the Tata Sky platform. It will include discourses, satsangs, meditations, interviews, explanation of scriptures in a relatable format, special events and exclusive live feeds of meditation sessions and the ashrams of each guru.

“Curated and targeted content is what today's consumer asks for. Amidst the cluttered content space, we observed that there was need for a dedicated service for spiritual seekers - people who are looking for spiritual guidance or already follow India's most popular spiritual Gurus. Tata Sky Gurus is a service where they can have unlimited access to their Guru's teachings and thoughts, whenever they want. We partnered with Shemaroo to create this service with exclusive and unlimited content including LIVE feeds from the guru’s ashrams,” Tata Sky chief commercial officer Pallavi Puri.

The spiritual gurus will deliver talks and discourses across topics connecting varied human emotions, challenges and complexities of life. These topics delve deep into the understanding of what life is about and are rooted as strongly in mundane and practical matters as they are in inner experience & wisdom. The service aims to cater to subscribers embarking on a journey of spiritual awakening.

Tata Sky Gurus will be the pioneer in providing Live feeds from Sadhguru’s ashram in Coimbatore & Brahma Kumaris ashram in Mount Abu and exclusive guided meditations in Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s voice.

Shemaroo Entertainment director Hiren Gada added, “With the increasing stress and pressure in individuals’ lives, the importance and urgency for spirituality has grown. We believe this is the right time for a service like Tata Sky Gurus to be launched. Indian consumers have a huge appetite for a subject like this and with high quality content now being easily accessible, we hope the audiences will have a rich experience. Shemaroo Entertainment has been an active player in the devotional space and through this service we are adding a new dimension to our offerings.”
