Why meditation for couples is a must

Why meditation for couples is a must | Yoga and Meditation | Scoop.it
In the ancient Indian Vedic times, for any spiritual practice, a single person of a couple was not allowed because it would create an imbalance. If married, both the individuals had to be a part of such practices. The belief was that one would grow while the other would not, but when both the husband and wife would participate together, they move forward in union. Otherwise, if one is fulfilled and the other is not fulfilled, there would be conflict in the marital life and hence a rule was made that both of them should be take part together.

wisdom knowledge by Sri Sri Ravishankar — Just Be Happy

wisdom knowledge by Sri Sri Ravishankar — Just Be Happy | Yoga and Meditation | Scoop.it

As an extension of inner peace, I like to see myself being useful to society, a small hand in the vast mechanism of the Universe, participating in a process much larger than my limited identity offers. Knowing that my smallest, most trivial needs are being taken care of by a loving, unseen Hand, I feel waves of gratitude flood me, until they pour down my face as tears. Seva is nothing but an expression of thanksgiving to the Divine. It stems from that space of thankfulness, “O God, you have done so much for me, and you are so quiet in your ways! What can I do for you? Please align me to your work.”

Five years of being in Art of Living, Bangalore and listening to the teachings of Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji,has taught me that being useful brings spontaneity, enthusiasm and gratitude in life. Where once upon a time, driven by personal ambitions, my life appeared futile, life through seva has become valuable. Without any personal agendas to be fulfilled, life takes on a dramatic leap into a fearless, joyful arena of love. Life is lived as a game and challenges are faced with a smile.

מאמר שמדבר על כך שגם ככה הכל היא יצירה של משהו יותר גדול מאיתנו. אין לנו שליטה על כלום. במקום להיות בלחץ, בסטרס, בכעס ובפחד שמזיקים לבריאות, עלינו פשוט לשחרר. להבין שיש לנו גורל בין כה וכה. אז למה לא להיות שמחים? :)

wisdom knowledge by srisriravishankar: Respect & Ego : Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

There are two types of respect.

1. Respect that comes to you because of your position, fame or wealth. This type of respect is impermanent. It can be lost once you lose your wealth or status.
2. Respect that comes because of your virtues like honesty, kindness, commitment, patience and your smile. This respect, no one can take away.

קטע קריאה קצר של סרי סרי רבי שנקר, גורו (מנהיג ) מהודו. לכבד את עצמך משמעו לכבד כל דבר שמגיע אליך ושהולך ממך. לכבד את המקום שלך בעולם. ולא לתת לאגו לשלוט בך. לתת ללב להוביל. ברגע שנהיה בריאים מבפנים כך גף הגוף שלנו יהיה בריא. אז לכבד את הבריאה שאנחנו.

wisdom knowledge by Sri Sri Ravishankar — On Formality & Cordiality : Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

wisdom knowledge by Sri Sri Ravishankar — On Formality & Cordiality : Sri Sri Ravi Shankar | Yoga and Meditation | Scoop.it

An organization cannot happen, orderliness cannot prevail, if the formalities are abandoned. All actions are measured steps of formality. Devotion is informal and totally chaotic.

Cordiality is the core of one’s existence, formality is the outer shell. When the outer shell is thin, it can reflect the inner light. Like the dome of the lamp softens the light. But if the dome is too opaque, you cannot see the light. So, we need to strike a balance between cordial formality and formal cordiality.

wisdom knowledge by Sri Sri Ravishankar — Love should be given and not demanded: Sri Sri... | Yoga and Meditation | Scoop.it

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Guruji:
Now, you stop demanding love from the person. If you demand love or ask proof of their love, you are destroying it. How can someone prove their love to you? You should not burden the person.

Suppose, someone asks you every day, ‘Are you honest? Are you honest?’ What will you feel? Bad right? Similarly, if you keep asking someone, ‘Do you really love me?’ How will the person feel?

The burden to prove one’s love is a very big. Your fiancé is coming to you to find comfort, and instead of giving the person comfort, you make him miserable. You should stop demanding love. Love should be given and not demanded.

wisdom knowledge by Sri Sri Ravishankar — Streamline Your Emotions: Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

“You cannot always suppress your emotion and you cannot always keep expressing your emotion. Both will bring you difficulties and trouble.” - Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Q: Dear Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji, I am living in a phase in which I am allowing my emotions to take over me, and I am aware of this. Otherwise, I feel they get suppressed. Am I on the right path?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Emotions are such that sometimes you should abstain from them, and sometimes you should express them. You can’t take extreme views here.

If you always suppress your emotion you will be in trouble. If you always keep expressing your emotions, then also you will be in trouble and you will put others also in trouble. That’s why emotions should be streamlined through wisdom. When there is wisdom then you know which emotion to express and which not to express. And where you should express, and where you should not.

wisdom knowledge by srisriravishankar: Living – Truly An Art

Somewhere in my quest for better living, I came across an Organization known as The Art of Living.  The name itself sounded curious and for a meandering soul like me, I wanted to know more about it. I came to know that the founder of this foundation is Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, a modern day spiritual master who has touched the lives of millions across the globe.

 
The enthusiastic volunteers encouraged me to experience their course and see for myself. I participated in a six day program that made me look into many aspects of life that we take for granted or simply fail to implement.I also learned a breathing technique called Sudarshan Kriya,taught in the 6 day Happiness Program  of The Art of Living,that has left a profound impact on me. I came out of the program a completely changed man in terms of how I should look at life and how I react to situations.

wisdom knowledge by srisriravishankar: Organizing Is a Part of Nature : Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

The entire creation is a huge organization. Everything is made up of atoms. The whole world is nothing but organization, where the atoms have decided to organize themselves in a specific pattern to form a particular substance. And those particular patterns bring them specific qualities.

Death/decay/transformationhappens when the atoms get bored of patterns and decide to recognise themselves.
e.g. : When the atoms of the apple say "Enough of being an apple", that's when the rotting starts. If there is never boredom of patterns, there can be no decay.
The movement from one organized state to another is also organized. This is the transient organization which we call chaos. This transient organization may need a catalyst. Knowledge is such a catalyst.
So, you have absolutely no escape from organisation.

wisdom knowledge by srisriravishankar: Relationship between ego and talent-Talk by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Relationship between ego and talent-Talk by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Q: Gurudev, why is there this huge ego that comes with talent? What is the relationship between ego and talent? For example, many talented singers do not let new singers come up. Why so?

Humanitarian Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
If there is talent, there will always be some such problems. It is difficult to see all good everywhere, and prakriti (nature) brings some such negative tendency somewhere or the other.

Those who are talented, normally, they are very emotional. They tend to get angry very quickly, lose their balance very fast. These things happen, and we have to manage such things.
