Attachments - by Sri Sri

Attachments

Attachments cause feverish breath and feverish breath takes away peace of mind. Then you are in pieces and fall prey to misery. Before you get scattered too much, gather yourself and rid your breath of the feverishness through surrender and sadhana. Unfortunately most people do not notice this until it is too late. When someone is drowning in the ocean of attachments, surrender is the life jacket they can put on and wait for the rescue team. Without fighting the attachments, observe the feverish breath and go to the cool place of silence within. Your first step in this direction is directing your attachment to the Knowledge, to the Divine. Your non-attachment to the mundane is your charm. Your attachment to the Divine is your beauty.

Being happy - by Sri Sri

Being happy is a practice. Being unconditionally happy is a practice: Come whatBeing happy is a practice. Being unconditionally happy is a practice: Come whatmay, today I'm going to smile. Anyway, everything is going to die! Everythingis going to vanish and disappear---so what! Who cares! Let me at least behappy, smile this moment, enjoy my very breath

Selling Your Happiness
You sell you happiness for peanuts! You sell your smile for pennies! I tell you, it's not worth it. The entire world is not worth your smile. Even if you are made the king or the emperor of the world, it's not worth giving away your smile.

Sri Sri Quotes ( A collection )

Seva / Service
If you are not having good experiences in meditation, then do more seva you will gain merit and your meditation will be deeper. When you bring some relief or freedom to someone through seva, good vibrations and blessings come to you.Seva brings merit; merit allows you to go deep in meditation; meditation brings back your smile. When you make service the sole purpose in life, it eliminates fear, focuses your mind, and gives you meaning Be grateful for any opportunity to do seva.

Love
Love is not an emotion, it is your very existence. Here are the signs of love. When you love someone, you see nothing wrong with them. When you love someone, you want to see them always happy and you want them to have the best. Love is the highest strength, yet it makes you absolutely weak Love cannot tolerate distance, and hatred cannot tolerate nearness. You can experience love, but you cannot describe it or express it totally. Love is beyond sight, touch, smell, taste, and sound. When there is Love, there is no ego; ego dissolves like the dew drops with the sun. In the company of one who is living Love, you also cant but spring into that Love. Love is that phenomenon of dissolving, disappearing, merging, becoming one with. Love is that phenomenon of total letting go. The seers, the seen, and the process of seeing all merge. The knowledge, the knower, and the known, they all merge, become one & that is Divine Love.

Anger
In ignorance anger is cheap and a smile is costly Make your smile cheaper and you anger expensive. The anger of the enlightened is a blessing.

Silence
Silence is the goal of all answers. If an answer does not silence the mind, it is no answer Only Silence is complete Smiling with all the existence is Silence Purpose of words is to create silence.

GOD
When you know you own God you will not be in a hurry to get something out of God. When you have infinite patience, you will realize God belongs to you. God does not test you because he knows you completely - your past, present and future God is calling you every moment. God is the Seer himself. Who sees---that is God God is love. Being in love is sharing that love. This entire universe is made up of God. There is nothing outside God. God is responsibility, total responsibility.

Knowledge
Be a Gopal. Be a friend in knowledge Be a friend in knowledge. Uplift each other in knowledge Knowledge is a burden if it does not set you free. Knowledge keeps everything fresh. In science you have knowledge first, and then faith follows. In spirituality, faith comes first, and then Knowledge follows. When you follow fun, misery follows you. When you follow Knowledge, fun follows you. Illusion is error of perception and knowing illusion as illusion is Knowledge. Suffering is a product of limited knowledge. For one who has awakened in knowledge, there is no more suffering.

The Spiritual Master / Guru
The master is a doorway The master is presence. The world is relativity and relativity has limitations. Presence is unlimited. If you are not feeling close to the master, it is because of you, because of your mind, because of your ego concepts. A master is like an ocean. Ocean is there, readily available. It does not reject anybody. If a Master is not hollow and empty, he is no Master at all.

Surrender
Do not say that you want to surrender. Just know that you already are surrendered. A person who cannot surrender cannot be self reliant When you are shaken, remember the foundation of responsibility is surrender. The greatest power is in surrender, surrender to the Divine.

Sadhana
Root out boredom through deep and continued meditation If you are unable to meditate because your mind is chattering too much, just feel that you are a little stupid, and then you will be able to sink deep into meditation Meditation erases the impressions and improves the expression Anytime you are confused, your mind is in conflict, do asanas, sit in asana. You will see, right away clarity comes. Effect of asana is clearing out of all conflicts, duality. The seed of negativity and the tendency for conflict in you can only be annihilated by Sadhana.

Satsang
Give quality time to the divine, it will be rewarded. Give satsang and meditation your highest priority One who does not do satsang is like a wild animal. Satsang alone makes you civilized. Satsang is the shelter from changing time and its harsh influence on life.

Freedom
Break through the barrier of the rational mind and find freedom for yourself Freedom is your very nature. Only with freedom do joy, generosity and other human values blossom Just an intention to be free makes you immediately free. Discipline protects freedom. You can choose to focus either on freedom or discipline, and this makes you happy or unhappy. Freedom without discipline is like a country without a defense.

Karma
When you praise someone, you take on their good karma. When you blame someone, you take on their bad karma Performing actions cannot eliminate karma. Only through grace can the bondage of karma be burnt. Prarabdha karma cannot be changed. Sanchita karma can be changed by spiritual practices.

Respect
Respect for the Self is faith and faith is being open Have respect for the Self and no one can take your self respect Someone does not need to be great in order to be respected. Respecting life makes you great.

Ego
The "I" or ego in you is a tiny atom Ego is separateness, non-belongingness The head level is safe for the ego. The heart level breaks the ego. The solve level dissolves the ego The inability to communicate occurs because of ego Someone experiences bliss, and that bliss, itself, becomes a trip for the ego. So the ego, in turn, destroys the infinity, the joy, the bliss.

Death
Divinity dwells in the void as well as in celebration. Death brings you in touch with the reality of life. Wake up an see your life is too short. The realization that life is short will bring dynamism to your life.

Breath
Breath is the link between your body and your spirit and your mind

Just be!

Just be!

There is no expectation of qualification to attain the Divine.
No need for any effort.

Just be.

Akinchan
I am no body

Aprayatna
I do nothing

Achaha
I want nothing

from Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Mohnja sur tohi desa pyara mile jadein geet ashaanjo madhur taranobane tadeinSur ka dariya bahte saagar me mile badlaan da roop leike barasanholle haule

Nanna dhwanige ninna dhwani-ya, seridante namma dhwaniya..Naa swaramu nee swaramu sangammamai, mana swaram ga avatarinchey

Ninde swaramum ningalude swaramum otthucheiyum Namudeya swaramai….
Tomaar shoor moder shoor srishti koroor koi ekshoor[2]…Sriishti karoon woi katha
Toma mora swarer milan srishti kare chalbochatano
male sur jo taro maro, bane aapno sur niralo
majhya tumchya julta tara madhur suranchya barasti dhara
Sur ki nadiya har disha se behke saagar mein mile…Baadlo ka roop leke barse halke halke..Oh…Mile sur mera tumhara tho….sur bane hamara…
Mile Sur mera tumharatho sur bane hamara tho sur bane hamaratho sur bane hamara..
