He was able to recite verses from the Bhagavad Gita, at an age where the rest were probably learning to converse properly, he started to meditate when he was only six, and took an interest in the Vedas. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar was born extraordinary.
His Art of Living, which is spread all across the world has inspired and changed many lives. His work, thoughts, sayings and quotations has inspired the lives of over a million people worldwide.
On the occasion of his birthday, here’s a collection of thoughts, sayings and quotes by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar to inspire, motivate and kickstart your week.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has an incredible gift of shape-shifting the world. His words are inspiring and motivating. But he says there’s a huge difference between motivation and inspiration.
Sometimes we think that certain tasks or situations are beyond our strength or power, not realising how strong we can actually be.
Worry can turn our world upside down. No matter how strong we may be mentally, worrying is something that plagues all of us at some point of time in our lives.All we need to do is realise that bad times don’t last long.
If our mind is at peace we can achieve anything in the world is what Sri Sri tells us and that’s so true.
Today, even though we have progressed in many ways, we see more and more young people going into depression, feeling hopeless and thinking they aren’t good enough. If we can pause and spend some time with them and help them then there is no greater service than that.
While some of us are more chilled out and relaxed, some worry and stress too much and want to be perfect. Take for example, they are expecting some guest home, they stress about things like if their house is clean enough, whether they will be judged etc. That slowly leads to anger and frustration. Sri Sri says it’s ok to be imperfect and he’s right because we are only human after all. If we were perfect, we’d be god right? So go ahead flaunt your imperfections!
Yes. if we eat right and eat well, pause and breathe, get enough sleep and stay calm, we’ll never need medicines.
Don’t worry about what others say and think about you. The more you worry, the more stressed you will be. Just keep calm and carry on!
Yes, that’s true. No matter where you work or what you do, if you don’t like what you are doing or are not inspired from within, success will never be yours.
Like the old song we all learnt in school says, “The time to be happy is now, and the place to be happy is here!” So live for today, plan for tomorrow and just party tonight! Live in the present and don’t worry about the future too much.
Faith can move mountains they say and so does Sri Sri. Faith on people, faith in life, but most of all faith in yourself. If you think you can, you automatically will.
Have faith and work towards what you need. Have a happy week ahead!
