बुद्धिमत्ता का लक्षण है अनेक में एक को देखना और एक में अनेक को। 

A sign of intelligence is to see the One in many and the many in One.

तुम्हारी सम्पन्नता तुम्हारी बाँटने की क्षमता में है न कि इसमें कि तुम्हारे पास कितना है। 

Your richness is in your ability to share and not in how much you have.

दुखी होने का तरीका है बैठ कर हर समय सोचना, "मेरा क्या? मेरा क्या?” आनंद पाने के लिए ध्यान करो और अपने आस पास लोगों की सेवा करो। स्वयं में ईश्वर को देखना ध्यान है और लोगों में ईश्वर को देखना प्रेम या सेवा है।  

The technique to get depressed is to sit and think “what about me, what about me” all the time. To reach the state of bliss, meditate, and serve people around you. Seeing God within you is meditation and seeing God in the people around you is love or service.

यदि तुम्हारे जीवन में भय या दुविधा है तो वह प्रतिबद्धता न होने के कारण है| अप्रतिबद्ध मन दुखी रहता है| प्रतिबद्ध मन को कठिनाई का सामना करना पड़ सकता है, पर अंत में उसे अपने परिश्रम का फल मिलेगा|

If there is fear or confusion in your life, it is because of a lack of commitment. An uncommitted mind is miserable. A committed mind may experience rough weather but will reap the fruits of its toil.

जो कुछ भी तुम धैर्य से कर रहे हो, वह समय व्यर्थ नहीं कर रहे हो। उतावले या अधीर होकर यदि कुछ भी कर रहे हो, यह जान लो कि समय व्यर्थ कर रहे हो। 

Anything you do with patience, you are not wasting that time. Anything you do impatiently, with a restless mind, know for sure you are wasting time.

Cordial environment, healthy body, confusion-free mind, inhibition-free intellect, trauma-free memory and a happy soul is the birth right of every individual. And how to achieve this? It is simple. Purity in heart, clarity in mind and sincerity in action! Meditation is that technique which helps you to relax deep within yourself and attain all this.

Today when we have so many conflicts in the world in the name of religion, nationality or any other reason, it is so important for people to find inner peace and to spread peace. We need to look for a world which is free from stress and violence.

Because when a person is stressed he doesn't know what he's doing. And that is how violence spreads in the planet. I see only two reasons for violence: stress and wrong understanding.

And through meditation and a sense of belonging, when we feel that we belong to everybody on the planet, there can be no violence and no stress. Our children need a better world than what we have inherited, don't you think so? When the energy is low, what happens? Either you get depressed and suicidal, or you get into negativity and harm others. To get rid of both these tendencies you need yoga, meditation and service.

Dasharatha means one who can run ten chariots at a time. Your body is Dasharatha, the ten chariots, which include the five organs of senses and the five organs of action. These take the mind into ten different directions.

The three names of Dashratha’s queens are also very interesting. The first wife is Kaushalya, which means skill. The second wife is Sumitra, which means good friend. There could be many friends, but not all are good friends. Many times, friends drag you in the wrong direction. Sumitra is one who takes you in the right direction. The third wife is Kaikeyi, one who stands by your side, although she appears differently; but deep within, she does benevolence. It is like a doctor who gives you a bitter medicine, or a vaccination. As soon as the children see him, they start yelling and crying, but the vaccination does good to them. Similarly, Kaikeyi who apparently is not pleasant, but inwardly, does that which is good for you.

Dasratha did a yagya called Ashwamedha, after which he got four sons. Shwa means yesterday or tomorrow, Ashwa means today - not yesterday, nor tomorrow. It means it is eternal and the present moment. Medha means purification. Medha also means intellect. Ashwamedha means purifying the intellect by being in the present moment, purifying the spirit, the senses, the body-mind complex; going deep in the spirit. 

When Dasharatha did the Ashwamedha yagya, Rama was born. This is the spiritual significance of Sri Rama’s birth. The words - 'rays', 'radiance', all these come from the Sanskrit root Ra, which means to shine, radiance, brilliance and light. Ma means within me, in my heart. 'Rama' means ‘the light in my heart’. When the mind in this body, with some skill gets into the present moment, it purifies the mind and the heart, and then Rama, the light in our heart, shines.

Four things come out of you when Ashwamedha is done. When your senses are purified, then what comes up is the Divine light in your heart (Rama), and awareness (Lakshmana). Then, you have no enemies (Shatrugnan), and all the talents (Bharat) come to you.

तुम्हें दूसरों से सम्मान की अपेक्षा छोड़नी ही है| पूरी तरह| इस पथ पर ऐसी बहुत सी शंकाएं और परिस्थितियां आयेंगी जो तुम्हें हर ओर से चुभन करेंगी ताकि तुम में कोई दुर्बलता न रह जाए| अन्यथा यहाँ आकर, मेरे पास बैठकर हंसकर चले जाने का कोई अर्थ नहीं| यदि तुम यहाँ आए हो तो तुम्हें हीरे की तरह तेजस्वी बनना है|

You have to drop expecting people to respect you. Completely. On this path, definitely doubts and situations will come that needle you from all sides, so that no weakness is left in you at any point. Otherwise, there is no point in coming, sitting here with me, laughing and then going away. If you come here, you have to become like a diamond. Powerful!

It is impossible for you to give more love to yourself. It is like ocean wanting to give more water to itself. In fact you love yourself too much and that is the problem, you're only thinking about yourself. Start thinking about everybody else, and give love to others. You are 'love' my dear, just relax and reduce your wants.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's Official page. Sri Sri is a revered spiritual & humanitarian leader, peace activist.
Introduction
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Revered spiritual and humanitarian leader, peace activist. Founder of the Art of Living and the International Association for Human Values.

As an ambassador of peace, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar plays a key role in conflict resolution and spreads his vision of non-violence at public forums and gatherings world-wide. Regarded as a neutral figure with a sole agenda of peace, he represents hope to people in conflict. He has received particular credit for bringing opposing parties to the negotiating table in Iraq, the Ivory Coast, Kashmir and Bihar. He was appointed the Chairman of Reception Committee for the 500th anniversary celebrations of the Coronation of Krishnadevaraya (by Government of Karnataka, India). Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is also a member of the Amarnath Shrine Board (appointed by Government of Jammu and Kashmir, India).

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.
