Sri Sri RaviShankar knowledge Sharing:
Q: what is the purpose of life?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: One who knows wonâ€™t tell you, and anybody who tells you doesnâ€™t know. It is very important question. Keep it with yourself. You should keep yourself asking this question. This very question will clear the entire cobweb around you, and will keep you on track of what you want and where do you want to go.
Q: Is spirituality really related to science?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Yes, Spirituality is saying â€˜who am I?â€™ and science is saying â€˜What is this?â€™ Objective analysis is science and subjective understanding is spirituality. And they go hand in hand. In the East they were never in conflict with each other.
It is said in Bhagvat geeta -Gyan Vigyana triptatma which means you should satisfy yourself through both subjective and scientific knowledge. You will find fulfillment only when both science and spirituality go together.
Q: What is causing so many people fall in depression?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: If we keep thinking what about ourselves all the time, we will get depressed. You should see what you can do, and how you can contribute to the world.
We all have to work towards having a stress free, violence-free, drug and alcohol free, and healthy society.
Violence free society, disease free body, confusion free mind, inhibition free intellect, trauma free memory and sorrow free soul is the birth right of every individual, and thatâ€™s what I have been telling around the world. We are all one family; we all belong to one family.
