Roadmaps to joy!


Take a sankalpa that only good things will happen to me. As you sow so shall you reap; so have faith in yourself that you will be successful in whatever you do!

~ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

The Divine is your only security

Q: Guruji, scriptures say that the divine is the only security. Insurance companies say that retirement plans are the only security. My wife says that our children will be our only security. I am a little confused. Where should I invest?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: A little bit in all three; and you have enough to invest in all three. I would say first in yourself as you are the source of insecurity if there is any. In spite of having a good family, children, house, money, everything, if your soul is hungry, it will still be insecure. So first fill your spirit with spiritual wisdom, experience and you will see there is no insecurity. Everything will fall in place.

Krishna and Shiva

Q: Dear Guruji, is Shiva consciousness and Krishna consciousness the same?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Yes, yes, they’re same. Krishna consciousness is a little naughtier, that’s it. When it is silent, it is Shiva consciousness. When it is active, it is Krishna consciousness.
