Wonder, awe, disbelief, surprise, amazement are emotions that flit across your mindspace whenever you have a chance to be in an open gathering with Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. You wonder at the characteristic simplicity and beauty of his answers. Awe hits you at the clarity of his perception on topics ranging from ancient wisdom to modern complexities of life, from the philosophical to even the irrational. Disbelief strikes when you watch him answer the same questions every time with untold patience. He will surprise you when he remembers you asking a similar question from an earlier gathering. His playfulness, wit and humour will amaze you. The manner of his response is such that even if it is not your question, you will still find something opening up within that will take you to a simple yet deeper understanding of life and yourself. His takes will move you, inspire you, even reduce you to tears. Love for him is not an emotion, it is your very existence. Health is not just the absence of disease, it is a dynamic expression of life. When you see events as just ‘happenings’ rather than ‘doings’, you’re liberated right away. You feel you want to be at peace with yourself but remember you are peace. Love is not an act, it is your very nature. So there is no success or failure in love. This book is peppered with similar beautiful nuggets of knowledge, the understanding of which will make life an eternal celebration. Pick up the book to wonder at the beauty of the man who has delivered such profound knowledge in just 200 pages.
