Meditation is a way to overcome misery.

Q: I know I am searching for something but I don’t know what am I searching for?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
I have a simple suggestion for you. Just take out two hours for four days and attend one of the Art of Living Basic programs and do Sudarshan Kriya. Once you do Sudarshan Kriya you will see that there is a deeper spirit within you. You will be able to experience it and it is a fantastic experience.
So everyone should experience this, it’s such a beautiful experience of your spirit.
And if you know this you can handle your mind so well. So take that time off, two hours, four days and there are very good highly qualified teachers here. They will take you through that inner journey and you would not get this experience in your life.

Q: I am very restless or I am very sleepy. How do I get a better balance for meditation?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Again these experiences are so common for a beginner. If you are just beginning to meditate, restlessness comes up or you feel very sleepy. When stresses get released from your system, such a passage may be common. Farry will tell you more on this. When it comes from a scientist mouth, it has more flavors to it. He is doing a lot of research in Oslo University on Sudarshan Kriya. They found how the chromosomes of your body change! He just told me some very exciting news. So when stress release happens, the chemical or structural form in which stress was stored gets released, you get all these experiences. Your endocrine system readjusts itself, because we have violated our body in so many ways so many times. We have not kept the balance; we have not honored our own body, so jerks may happen. How many of you have found some jerks?
Emotions may come up and you feel completely confused. All this may happen. It's not that it should happen. Sometimes it doesn't happen and you say am I not releasing any stress? That person is getting stress released and I am so quiet. Don't compare your experience with anybody whatsoever. We all are so different. Everybody's nervous system is so different. And at different times, different experiences come to different people.
So at any time we should never compare our experiences with others and feel sorry or happy about it.
Taking an early walk in the fresh morning air for 20 minutes is both good exercise, and balancing to all doshas.

According to the ancient texts, a person seeking true health and wellbeing must:
- Maintain a good balance between change and stability
- Be able to digest life experiences, extracting the parts that are nourishing and releasing those aspects that are not
- Make choices that generate enthusiasm in body, heart, mind, and soul
