About The Book

In This book, Sri Sri discusses topics ranging from doubt and fear to love and dispassion. He describes what it means to be on the spiritual path –a path of service, Sadhana and Surrender.

About The Author

His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is a universally revered spiritual and humanitarian leader. His vision of a violence-free, stress-free society through the reawakening of human values has inspired millions to broaden their spheres of responsibility and work towards the betterment of the world. Sri Sri has reached out to an estimated 300 million people worldwide through personal interactions, public events, teachings, Art of Living workshops and humanitarian initiatives. Some questions can only be answered in silence. Silence is the goal of all answers. If an answer does not silence the mind, it is no answer. Your soul is solidified silence and this solidified silence is wisdom, knowledge. When wisdom dawns, it gives rise to celebration.

Introduction

In June of 1995, His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar began a weekly tradition of creating a short talk, often on a subject that was relevant to current events. Each week this knowledge flowed by electronic mail, by fax and by post all around the world, to every continent, and each year these talks were compiled into volumes. This is a collection of excerpts from these talks from the first five years.

Whether reading a talk from years past or hearing a current one for the first time, the knowledge is always fresh and meaningful. Those who are lucky enough to be with Sri Sri when the knowledge is created, discover truths that fill both the heart and the intellect. In his words, "Being with the Guru means spontaneous integration of life and wisdom:' People often feel that the knowledge applies to an immediate need, and there are many instances where someone seeking wisdom or advice picks up a volume and opens it randomly to find exactly what they require at that moment. The paradigm of time, space and separateness breaks down.

The journey for this collection over five years began in New Delhi and ended in Rishikesh, India. The voyage in between included many passages around the world, during which many hearts and minds were blessed with the wisdom of this humble man. This collection is thematic in preference to being chronological. The first chapter helps us understand the issues of anger, doubt and fear - those things we want to change, as well as love and dispassion - those things we want to culture. The second chapter, building on the first, educates us on what it means to be on a spiritual path, discussing service, spiritual practices and surrender. The third chapter is most sublime, leading us through an understanding of God, and back to our inner Self - that which we really seek, often without knowing.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
