A: Definitely! Technology and spirituality should go together, then technology can bring comfort. Otherwise technology can be used to destroy mankind. Technology can be used to create terror in the planet. Is it not happening? Technology can be abused to hurt people. If human values are missing technology can be disastrous. And it is the spirituality, the humanness, the human values, which can prevent this disaster and bring comfort to people. Technology can be used to bring comfort, it can wipe the tears of millions, it can feed millions, it can educate millions.

Through his initiatives and addresses, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has consistently emphasized the need for reinforcing human values and recognizing humanity as our highest identity. Fostering interfaith harmony and calling for multi-cultural education as the remedy for fanaticism are significant parts of his efforts to achieve sustainable peace on our planet.
His work has touched the lives of millions of people around the world, going beyond the barriers of race, nationality and religion with the message of a “one-world family”; that inner and outer peace are possible; and that a stress-free, violence-free society can be created through service and the reawakening of human values.
